The third book of Dorotheus which he wrote with respect to the haylijand the kadhkhudah, which are the

governor and the indicator of thetime of the years of life.

In the name of God, the compassionate, the merciful. [Here] beginsthe third book of Dorotheus which he wrote with respect to the haylajand the kadhkhudah, which are the governor and the indicator of thetime of the years of life. At the beginning of this he says: consider Saturn, Jupiter, andMars. If you find them eastern or in one of [their] stations(*1), [thenthey are used], but if they are under the Sun's rays in the degree ofthe Sun, then this is not counted (*2) , [or if it is] western. If youfind them seven days before the nativity or seven days after it in thepositions which I named for you in the term of [one of] these three,then it will be governor of the nativity. 注意土木火三颗。如果他们刚好 heliacalrising 或者刚好处在其中一个停滞期,则该星体可胜 任命盘主宰星,但若是该星体跟太阳同度或处于昏星状态,此时则不可用。如果在出生前七 天或后七天, 这三颗星体刚好也进入如上所述的位置, 且太阳落在这三颗星体所主宰的 term, 则该颗星体为命盘主宰星。 (我不能确定最后一句的意思,也许只要恰巧进入这些位置即可, 并不用太阳也落入他们的 terms?) *1:外行星停滞期通常也是最亮或者亮度增加的时期。在 Paulus 的职能星取用当中也有类 似的考量,但额外多了金水为晨星的状态(应该是 heliacal setting?) 。 *2:外行星的 cazimi 只会发生在太阳后面,无法像金水一样可能在太阳表面造成黑点。但 不管怎样,这边的记载很显然已经跟 Omar 所言不同。 根据 Omar of Tyberias 第 11 页: “Dorotheus said that when Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars are oriental,or with the Sun in one degree, or in a station, or before these placesor after thems through seven days while from there they have sometestimony to the Hyleg, it moderates or perhaps rules over the Hyleg orAlcocoden.”

A planet is eastern if it is behind the Sun and western if it isbetween its [the Sun's] hands. If there are fifteen degrees betweenSaturn and the Sun, and similarly ••• degrees between Jupiter and theSun, and eighteen degrees between Mars and the Sun, and ••• degreesbetween Venus and the Sun, and nineteen degrees between Mercury and theSun -- whenever you find them behind the Sun by these degrees, then sayconcerning them [that they have] the power of being eastern. If one ofthem is under the Sun's rays, then it will be one which will not beseen. 注译者:土星离太阳十五度。火星离太阳十八度。水星离太阳十九度。 这边应该是在讲 heliacal rising,但若是如此,那么需要注意不同的纬度,星体 heliacal rising 的度量,以黄经表示的度数会有所出入。 另外参见 the beginning of wisdom 第 113 页。 Mathesis 第二册第九章。 See also on the third day from the nativity in the term of whichplanet the Moon is because, if this planet is a benefic and its lord isin a good place aspecting the Moon from a good place from trine whilethe Moon is in a cardine or what follows a cardine, then say that allof the nativity's condition is good. But if the lord of the Moon's termis a malefic and it is in a cardine while the lot of fortune

is inopposition to the Moon, then say [that there is] no doubt that thenativity is bad. If the lord of the term is a benefic or a malefic andis in a good place aspecting the Moon, then it will be mediocre. 注意出生后第三天月亮落入的哪颗星体的 term。若该颗星为吉星且其定位星落宫良好(应指 强宫) ,且该颗吉星(?)也在吉宫跟月亮有吉相位,而月亮落在角宫或者 succedent houses, 则命主命格良好。 但若是月亮的 term ruler 为凶星且落角宫,而福点跟月亮对冲,则命格低下。 注译者:注意出生后第三天月亮的状态,比起 Valens 或其他人,Dorotheus 多了对 terms 的强 调。 Look at the conjunction of the Moon and both halves of its courseand [its] opposition, which is [its] fullness, because if the Moon isin one of these situations, then the lord of the Moon's term rules thenativity. If you do not find the lord of the Moon's term in a cardineor in what follows a cardine, then consider the lord of the ascendant'sterm because the degree of the ascendant becomes the governor in it[the nativity]. If it is as I mentioned, then look at the lord of the[ascendant's] house, which [planet] it is, as, if it is eastern(*) in agood place, then it will be governor. If you find the lord of the[ascendant's] house under the [Sun's] rays, then see which is its lordand see whether that place in which it is is masculine or feminine. 在新月,满月,以及半月时,月亮的 term ruler 为命盘主宰星(但该 term ruler 不能落入 cadent houses) 。 但如果该 term ruler 落入 cadent houses,则看向 asc 的 term,因为 asc 的度数则会变成命盘的 主宰星(应该是 asc 的 term ruler 才对?或者其语意是 asc 会成为 hyleg 的意思? ) 。 但如果 asc 的 term ruler 也落入 cadent houses,则看向 asc 的定位星,如果该颗星体 eastern 且 落吉宫,则该星体为命盘主宰星。 但如果该 asc 的定位星被阳光笼罩,则看向该定位星的定位星,看该星落点的阴阳性质。 *:不确定这里是否针对恰好处在 heliacal rising 的状态,但根据下一句,至少星体不能受阳 光笼罩是确定的。 注译者:我认为这一段可以间接印证满月可以胜任 Hyleg(因为月亮被烧则不能胜任,满月 类似被燃烧,满月 12 度之内,参见 Bonatti。 ) 。而新月,也就是通常是月亮被燃烧的情况下, 则以太阳为用。 其次,这一段似乎也在表达着 term ruler(担任 alcocoden 的角色)不能 cadent。 以下为昼生盘取用 If the lord of the Sun's term is in a good place, then it will bethe protector of the haylaj. If the Sun is in the seventh or eighthsign, which sign is masculine, then the lord of the Sun's term will beruling in it, but if the Sun is in a feminine sign, then it will not bethus because the Sun has been feminized twice — once [by] the sign inwhich it is and the other time by its position among the twelve[places]. If you find the Sun in this position in a nativity, thenconsider the Moon. (上面这一段很可能承接在 asc 定位星的定位星而来, 但依照语意, 当中文句似乎有所阙漏。 ) 当太阳的 term ruler 落在吉宫,则该 term ruler 可成 alcocoden。 (这边很可能省略太阳落第 十一与第十宫之类的相关文句。 ) 当太阳落在阳性星座第七或第八宫,则太阳的 term ruler 为 alcocoden。但如果此时太阳落在 阴性星座,则不可取用,因为太阳被阴性化两次,一次是阴性星座,一次是阴性象限,因此 这时候要看向月亮。 If the Moon is above the earth and in midheaven or what followsmidheaven and [it is] a feminine

then the lord of the Moon's termwill be the ruler unless it is under the Sun's rays. 当有吉星落在 asc 算起十五度之内,则让该星体当做 hyleg 的 sharer。 注译者:参见第一册第七章与第二十六章,这边的十五度单位应该是指 OA 而非黄经。参见 Avraham Ibn Ezra 的 120 Aphorisms 第 29 条(15 度规则) 。 再者,根据 Omar 以及 Montulmo 的记载,对于命盘主宰的 sharer 则有更进一步的条件。比较 参见 Omar of Tyberias 第 11 页(见下方引用) 。 . 如果月亮落在第七宫或第八宫,不论星座的阴阳性,则月亮为 hyleg,而月亮的 term ruler 则 为 alcocoden;夜生盘也是类似的取用法。 注译者:因为是阴性象限,因此月亮落阳性或阴性星座皆可。 再者,昼生盘部分到此为止虽没明讲,但明显可知光体要有资格成为 hyleg 则不能 cadent。 以下为夜生盘取用 If you find the Moon cadent and the Sun in a nocturnal nativity[in the cardine] under the earth or [in] the fifth place. 夜生盘,若月亮 cadent,太阳落在第四宫或第五宫,太阳的 term ruler 没有被阳光笼罩, 则该 term ruler 为 alcocoden(太阳为 hyleg) 。 注译者:又再次指出 alcocoden 受阳光笼罩则不可用。 If the lord of the Moon's term is under the [Sun's] rays(*). if it is in the fifth orfourth. 当月亮落在阴性星座第十宫或第十一宫,则月亮的 term ruler 为 alcocoden,除非该 term ruler 受阳光笼罩。 注译者:这边指出了若 alcocoden 受阳光笼罩则不可用。而且因为是阳性象限,因此特别说明 月亮要落在阴性星座里。 If you also find the Moon in the cardine of the West or whatfollows [that] cardine in whatever sign it is. 但如果太阳与月亮都 cadent 或者都失光(?) ,且光体都没有力量,或是光体其一孱弱,则看 向 asc 的度数。若 asc 的定位星受阳光笼罩或 cadent,则命主早夭短命。 *1:不确定 weakened in their light 是否指『蚀』 ,或者指两者皆在地平面下,或是远地点? *2:这边的 power 若是指 essential dignities,则语意所以可能是说 peregrine 或者失势陷落? But if together with this a benefic is in the ascendant in what isbetween it and fifteen degrees. then say [that there is] ruination in thisnativity and that he [the native] will have no upbringing. If you find the lord of this ascendant underthe [Sun's] rays or cadent. if thelord of the Sun's term is free of [its] rays. then the Moon will bethe haylaj and the lord of its term will be the ruler in thegovernorship of the other. similarly [is it done] in a nocturnalnativity. then look at thedegree of the ascendant. 如果月亮的 term ruler 受阳光笼罩,则看向太阳(若太阳在第四或第五宫) 。 *:这一句应该是在讲,夜生盘,当月亮没有 cadent 的时候,若月亮的 term ruler 受阳光笼罩 的情况下。总之,作者不断强调 alcocoden 不能被阳光笼罩就是了。 注译者:到此为止,可推敲出,hyleg 不能 cadent,而 alcocoden 则不能被烧(不过没直接提 到 alcocoden 是否也不能 cadent) 。 But if the Sun and the Moon are both cadent or weakened and intheir light(*1) and it happens that the two luminaries have nopower(*2). then it will take over the governorship of this. then. thenyou must also at night look at the Sun as. then mix this planet with the haylaj. or [if] one of the two luminaries is weak. it will be the ruler inthe nativity.sign.

and none of the planets was in themexcept in the ascendant in which the Sun was. it will be called a sharer. 吉星落角宫或者吉宫,且有 ED 或者 sect,则这些星体可以成为命盘主宰星的 sharer。 (?) *1: 根据语意以及其他古籍的资料, 应该是金星才对。 让人不禁怀疑中世纪初期将 Dorotheus 翻译成阿拉伯文的学者,本身是否具有足够的星学素养?以及历史资料在传承与翻译的过程 中,所难以避免出现的谬误。 *2:decan 被视为 ED 之一应是中世纪中晚期之后的事情。因此这里很可能是当时出自阿拉 伯学者对 Dorotheus 的增编。 注译者:比较参见 Omar of Tyberias 第 11 页。 “And commingle with the Hyleg [any] planet which is in theAscendant or in the Midheaven. then say that [the native]will be brought up. if it has any dignity in the [ place of] the Hyleg bydomicile.” (*alcocoden?) 下面开始讲 Primary Directions。 Now I will explain to you the length of life and the number ofyears as I attempt [to compute it]. and it is the best of theplaces. it will be similar to it and it(*) will be held more worthythan a planet which has one part. [it is] this [also] if you find the Sun [as haylaj]in its own house.then look at the lord of its [the Sun's] term or house. . Calculate ifthe Sun is in the first degrees of Aries and the lord of its [theSun's] term or house aspects it as this becomes the indicator. but if it is in what is like it among the houses. because sometimes you will want toconsider it in a horoscopic diagram as I will show you. exaltation. one dignity.sixth year of the years of Darinus [Diocletian] inthe month Mihr on the second day in one and a half equinoctial hours ofdaylight. then it will be good as [those]planets will rule in the nativity which are in their house orterm or image [decans](*2) or exaltation or tripliciti[es]. And its commingling is such that youshould look at the planet which is in the Ascendant or in theMidheaven. triplicity or bound.that is. The native wasborn in the ninety. that is . 当月亮为 hyleg,而月亮落在巨蟹,且月亮的 term ruler 跟月亮有四分相或三分相,则命主可 被抚养长大;同样地,当太阳狮子为 hyleg,也注意太阳 term ruler 跟太阳之间的关系。 注意当太阳落在白羊(第一度) ,且太阳的 term ruler 或者定位星火星跟太阳有相位,若有的 话,则该颗星体(例如定位星火星)则为命盘主宰星。 (太阳为 indicator。 ) 注译者:似乎可以窥见到一个相当重要的关键,即,根据 Omar 或者其他中世纪初期的大家, 光体落在自己主宰的以及擢升的星座,可同时担任 hyleg 与 alcocoden。不过根据上面这段的 记载,此时若是 term ruler 或者光体定位星跟光体有相位的话,则该 termruler 或光体定位星 则成为 alcocoden。我认为若要以技术面来解释,则『相位』本身多了一个 Dignity;若以哲学 面来看,则可从魂魄的角度切入。 再者,这是 Dorotheus 的 hyleg 相关取用至此,第一次出现对于 hyleg 与 alcocoden 之间相位 关系的描述,虽然这一考量是出现在光体落入自己星座或擢升位这种『相对特殊』情况下。 If Mars(*1) and Jupiter are in cardines or some of those thatfollow cardines or in the places which I mentioned above or in theirhouses or in their terms or in their exaltations or in theirtriplicities or in their portions.If the haylaj is the Moon and the Moon is in Cancer while the lordof its term is in quartile or trine to it. I wanted to know the places of the haylaj among which he wasborn because they are five places.

I took the eighteen degrees of the ascendant andI found in the [tables for] my clime and the twelve parts [signs][that] placed under it [was] three hundred and fifty-two [time] degreesand thirty seconds(应 该是 minutes 才对). soI subtracted the three hundred and fifty-two [degrees] and thirty[minutes] which belong to the ascendant. 土星落金牛四度三十分,六分相到双鱼五度;asc 落双鱼十八度;火星落金牛 24 度 50 分,六 分相到双鱼二十五度。 这是 Primary Direction。Dorotheus 似乎在这边不用 converse, 因此土星的六分相不往下碰 asc, 而火星以 diurnal motion 去碰 asc。 (ASC 为 significator,火星为 promissor。 ) I wanted to know in how many years the ascendant would conjoinwith the rays of Mars. Then Mars inTaurus twenty-four degrees and fifty minutes casts rays to twenty-fivedegrees of Pisces. so it is casting rays from sextile to five degrees of Pisces. and there were left four[time] degrees and eighteen minutes.Because the ascendant is in eighteen degrees count from the ascendantto the rays of Saturn.But I calculated for this nativity from the degrees of the ascendant. 火星的六分相在双鱼 24 度 50 分,其 OA 为 356 度 48 分。 356 度 48 分– 352 度 30 分= 4 度 18 分 一度一年。 . and it does not come down to it.and its degrees progress in the clime in which the native was born.which is the fourth clime. I said that the degrees of theascendant would conjoin with the sextile rays of Mars (*) in four yearsand a fifth and a tenth of a year. Saturn is in Taurus four degrees and thirtyminutes. I wrote this down separately. 言下之意,即 asc 推移到火星的六分相。 (ASC 为 significator) 查表得知 Asc 的 OA 为 352 度 30 分。 Then I took the twenty-four degrees and fifty minutes where Marscast its rays to Pisces and I found the rising-times under this [to be]three hundred and fifty-six [time] degrees and forty-eight minutes.

12] a complete rotation. 12] the three hundred and fifty-two [degrees] and thirty[minutes] which [were] under the degrees of the ascendant.(*2) This [was] in twenty-six years and ahalf and a fifth of a year. 本命土星四度三十分落在金牛座第一个 Term 里面。 I computed this thus in the [table for the] clime in which I was. I said . 本命 Asc 推移到金牛零度的 ascensions 为 26 度 42 分。 This makes clear that the conjunction of the degree of theascendant with a malefic indicates a great misery unless there are someof the benefics which cast their rays to this term ( * 1 ) becausesometimes misery and death will come to him before the conjunction ofthe degree with a malefic. then it will not be long before he dies. Because they were greater than thenineteen [degrees] and twelve [minutes] which [are] in Aries and I wasnot able to subtract it. it dissolves the fear and miserythat Mars indicates and he will not die. 21] a rotation. and Isubtracted from it [that] which was placed under the degree of theascendant. but this misery will pass byhim because whenever the rays of the benefics are found with the raysof the malefics. theywill descend to the [first] term of Taurus. thereremained twenty-six [degrees] and forty-two [minutes]. when the degrees of the ascendant depart from Aries.*:很显然作者认为(应该是 Dorotheus)凶星的六分相也可杀。见下方 Directing by Terms 一段。 Because Venus [is] in this term. I added to it [22. which [is] the place inwhich Saturn is.which is three hundred and sixty degrees. and I subtracted from it[379. Because [this was] less than what I wanted tosubtract from it. I said [that]the degree of the ascendant will depart from Aries in twenty-six yearsand a half and a fifth of a year.and I found the rising-times under thirty degrees of Aries [to be]nineteen [time] degrees and twelve minutes. there remained twenty-nine [degrees] and fifty-one[minutes]. 注译者: 也就是说, 至少要有吉星的相位投射到该凶星光所及的 bounds 里面, 方能逢凶化吉。 下面这一段开始非常类似 Omar 所记载的 Directing by Terms,但有些许出入。 Then. I added to it [19. which was three hundred and fifty-two [degrees] and thirty[minutes]. but if the malefic and its term cast rays without thebenefics. and it becamethree hundred and eighty-two [degrees] and twenty-one [minutes]. 白羊座在命盘的纬度,查表得 OA 为 19 度 12 分。 I wanted to subtract from these the [rising-]times which [were]under the degrees of the ascendant. then the benefic dissolves whatever the maleficindicates. *1:意即,需要跟凶星光所及同一个 bounds。在此例金牛座第一个 term 为金星主宰。 *2:也就是说,在 asc 碰到凶星的弧角到期之前,asc 推移到凶星光所触及的 bounds(或是 ,若此时没有吉星涉入(至 bound) ,则凶险或者死亡也极有可能 directing byterms 的交接期) 发生。 注译者: 我认为这个弧角推运会发展出这样的论断方式 (即凶星弧角未到期前, 在 bounds 交界,或者进入该 bound 等等状况,会带来凶险。而不论是哪种状况,其应期似乎都不够清 晰?)有大半的原因在于天文计算所产生的大量误差,当然所选用的天文观与计算方式也是 其中影响因素。因此我也认为这是 Directing by Terms 除了带有 timing 应期的功用之外,所以 沾染运势交替起伏色彩的原因之一。 But I wanted to know when would be its conjunction with the degreeof Saturn. I took the four degrees and thirty minutes in which Saturn[was] and I found in the [table for the] clime and the twelve parts[signs] [that ] the rising-times [are] twenty-two [degrees] andtwenty-one [minutes].

so that the degrees of Taurus and Gemini pass it by because none of themalefics will aspect [it] till it reaches the degrees of Cancer. and I subtracted from it the three hundred andfifty-two [degrees] and thirty [minutes ] which belong to theascendant.I said that it will arrive at the term in which Mars is in forty-twoyears and a half and a third and two.fiveyears and a sixth and half a tenth of a year [in which] the ascendantwould conjoin with Mars. the heat of the Sun will drive awaythe maleficence of Saturn. andhe will not die. 43] a rotation. 24] arotation. and it became three hundred and ninety-five [degrees] andtwenty-four [minutes].thirds of a tenth of a year. 本命金牛座 22 度的 OA 为 35 度 24 分。 (金牛座 22 度开始为土星主宰的 term) Asc 推移到金牛座 22 度的 asecnsions 为 42 度 54 分。 *:很显然这边是使用 Egyptian Terms。 The degree of the ascendant to the degree of Mars: I calculated itthus. Because [it was] small [and] Icould not subtract from it what I wanted to. and because of itssmallness I added to it [37. and I found [that] the rising-times [were] thirty-five[degrees] and twenty-four [minutes]. and it became threehundred and ninety-seven [degrees] and forty-three [minutes]. itwill dissolve the maleficance of Mars. there remained forty. 本命土星落金牛四度三十分,查表得 OA 为 22 度 21 分。 因此 Asc 往下碰土星为 29 度 51 分。 Because the Sun cast its rays from sextile to the first term ofTaurus where Saturn was staying. 本命火星所在的 OA 为 37 度 43 分。 Asc 推移到火星的 ascensions 为 45 度 13 分。 Because Venus also cast its rays on this place from sextile. and whatever of [its] rays it cast to this place(*1). and he will not die because ofVenus' aspect. I entered with the twenty-four [degrees] and fifty [minutes]which pertained to Mars in Taurus in the [table for the] clime in whichI was and its parts [signs]. Then the rays [of themalefics] will not reach it [the ascendant] until it comes to Cancer. there remained forty-two [degrees] and fifty-four [minutes]. and Isubtracted from it the three hundred and fifty-two [degrees] and thirty(minutes) which belong to the ascendant.that in twenty-nine years and a half and a quarterand a tenth of a year the degree of the ascendant would conjoin withSaturn. and the harsh misery will pass him by. bymeans of them this misery will pass [him] by. and I found [that] the rising-times [were]thirty-seven [degrees] and forty-three [minutes].(*2) 因为金星六分相到火星所在的 term 里,因此火星的凶险可被带走,而命主因为金星六分相的 关系也不会死;而不论金星相位的吉凶,皆可带走凶星的凶险。接着等 asc 推移到了巨蟹座, 才会再次跟凶星发生相位,因为走至双子座的时候会与本命凶星无相位。 *1:是说只要是吉星,不论相位的吉凶或其他因素等等?但根据对下文的推敲,似乎也并非 完全如此。 *2:这边很明显只考虑火土二凶星,似乎不将太阳(与月亮)的四分相考量在内。 . I added to it [35. I took twenty-two degrees of Taurus (*) andentered with them in the [table for the] clime and the twelve parts[signs ]. 因为太阳六分相到土星所在的 term,太阳的热可以带走土星的凶性,严酷的凶险将不会发生 在命主身上,命主亦无生命之忧。 In twenty-two degrees of Taurus the degree of the ascendant willarrive at where Mars [was].

if they do aspect. especially if with this the benefics do not aspectas. I entered withthirty degrees of Gemini in [the table for] my clime and its parts[signs] and I found [that] the rising [-time was] seventy-one [degrees]and twenty-five [minutes]. [but] he will die then when the rays of Marsreach it [ the ascendant]. Itook the four degrees and thirty minutes in which Saturn was and Ientered with them in the [table of] rising-times of Cancer. there remained seventy-eight[degrees] and forty-five [minutes]. I said that the degrees of theascendant will enter the first term of Cancer where are the sextilerays of Saturn in seventy-eight years and a half and a fourth of ayear. I computed thus. in these sometimes it makes him miserable andspoils [his] life(*1). they dissolve misery and death. but we do not find this peculiarity in everyone[of the books ]. and I added arotation and subtracted from it three hundred and fifty-two [degrees]and thirty [minutes].Then the degrees of the ascendant will enter the beginning ofCancer and Saturn will aspect it. and theywere seventy-six [degrees] [ and twenty minutes]. but to look at the course of the degrees of the Moonbecause the conjunction of the Moon's degree with the maleficsindicates misery. (*2)I sought for this in a long period of years and Isuffered every misery so that I might write it down. there remained eighty-three years and a half anda third of a year. it will dissolve themisfortune this time. *1:也就是说除了这两种 Direction 之外,也要注意 transits 以及 revolutions。 *2:似乎是在”间接”强调 Directions 的层级性高过 transits 与 revolutions? Look at the casting of rays in latitude also because sometimes aplanet is aspecting from opposition. and because [it was] small I added arotation and I subtracted [from the sum] those three hundred andfifty-two [degrees] and thirty [minutes].(*2) 因为本命太阳三分相至这个 term(土星六分相所在的 term) ,所以土星所造成的凶险可被带 走,但是接下来当 asc 走到火星(六分)相位的时候,命主则会死亡。 *1:再次出现凶星六分相可杀的相关描述(根据前后文语意推敲,似乎三分相也同样可杀。 ) *2:这边需要斟酌再三。火星六分相位落巨蟹 24 度 50 分,所在的 term 为巨蟹 19~26 度, 木星所主宰的 term。与这 term 有相位的星体有月亮处女 19 度 7 分,以及木星水瓶 20 度 10 分,但是作者似乎不认为该月亮与木星可解? 我认为可能的原因有:依照此命例推算,asc 推移至巨蟹 19 度时,命主将超过百岁,以当时 代来讲,应该是极为少见案例。若以技术面探讨,月落第七,木落第八,皆为凶宫,因此他 们的相位无法解救,不过这想法非常有待商榷,毕竟仅有单一个命例。 Also it is not useful to look at the course of these degrees andtheir term. 本命巨蟹零度的 OA 为 71 度 25 分。 本命 Asc 推移到巨蟹零度的 ascensions 为 78 度 55 分。 (*这边非一度一年,因为最后一句 说 78 年又 9 个月。但也可能是资料字误所致。 ) Then I calculated its conjunction with the degree of Saturn. 注译者:月亮本身为躯体的自然征象星,不喜凶星伤,无吉星助。 It is necessary for you to look at the transit of the planets andthe revolution of years. 本命土星落金牛四度三十分,巨蟹四度三十分查表得 OA 为 76 度 20 分。 本命 asc 推移到巨蟹四度三十分的 ascensions 为 83 度 50 分。 (再次回到一度一年) Because the Sun aspected from trine and cast [its] rays to thisterm in which are the rays of Saturn (*1) . .

Also if you find both the Sun and the Moon in the sixth or theeighth or the twelfth and the malefics aspect [them].(*3) *1:在此 hyleg 取用上使用到 decan,应该是当时阿拉伯学者的增编的缘故。 *2: 说明 hyleg 需要与其中一个主宰星 (通常也会是 alcocoden) 有相位 (可能有配合 moiety) 。 *3:也就是说,hyleg 跟 alcocoden 可以对冲与合相。 注译者:我认为这一段的记载,有很浓厚的中世纪阿拉伯色彩,尤其是其中提到了 decan 的 使用; 另外, 针对这些主宰星与 hyleg 要有相位发生的 『必需』 这一特点, 似乎也有配合 moiety 的使用而来,否则以希腊占星的 whole signaspect 来讲,要有相位关系很简单,大抵上不致于 需要特别强调,除非这里相位使用是在强调 aspect by bound,参见下方命例。 In a diurnal nativity if the Sun is in the ascendant in the degreesabove the earth(*1) and one of those [planets] which I mentionedaspects it. and he will not die in it. which according to this indicates misery.

Once you have found the haylaj.” Ifthe Sun is in opposition to Mars from the ascendant. 本命盘中,有凶星相位到 hyleg,则该凶星会带给命主损伤,而这会发生在该凶星所主宰的星 运期,即 algebuthar 走至该凶星主宰的 bounds 或该凶星相位所至的 bounds 之时。 注译者:若依照中世纪的观点,该凶星若在 hyleg 落点上有主宰力,则杀伤力减小。 根据 Avraham Ibn Ezra 的 120 Aphorisms 的第 20 条: ” If the baleful is in anascending sign and has within it any power. and I found the Sun cadent. There was nothing obvious from which thehayIaj might be found except the ascendant.(*2) 取用出 hyleg 后,检视月亮或太阳的 term ruler。若是他们的 term ruler 落入 cadent,且没有跟 hyleg 有相位,则该 hyleg 不良。 *1: 我不确定这边是否仅针对光体 (担任 hyleg 时) 的 term ruler?或是指 SAN 的 term ruler? *2:是否也能解读成命主虽有 hyleg,但生命力表现不够旺盛,健康度不佳?但不管怎样, 这里直接指出(光体的?)term ruler 不喜落入 cadent,且跟 hyleg 没有相位的情况。 注译者:term ruler 基本上与『生命力来源』息息相关。这一段记载根据字面,则非常强调光 体的 termruler 与 hyleg 之间的关系。特别是不喜见到光体的 termruler 也 cadent,尤其当光体 本身非 hyleg 的时候(或光体 cadent) ,更是如此? If you find amalefic casting its rays to the degree of the haylaj. Look at the lot of fortune in the same way.speak about the Sun [ashaylaj]. 太阳落第一宫与火星对冲,命主会败坏父亲的财产,并因权贵人士而受难,腿部会受伤等等; 这些事情会发生在火星所主宰的 period。 Beause the nativity was diurnal. it will heap evil on evil. I looked in search of the haylaj atthe Sun. I found the lot of fortune and the fullness [of themoon ] also in cadent. andstriking and grief from the nobles of men. not aspecting the haylaj. Mars. I also looked at the Moon. its influence will be lessharmful.(*3) 昼生盘,太阳落第一宫地平面上,且太阳落点的其一主宰星跟太阳有相位,则太阳可担任 hyleg。同样地,若是太阳落在第十宫或第十一宫,也具有担任 hyleg 的资格。 夜生盘则从月亮开始。 但若是昼生盘,而太阳 cadent 且受挫,若月亮落在这些宫位里面(这里应指第一,第十与第 十一宫。 ) ,则以月亮为取用(hyleg) 。 同样地,若是夜生盘,而月亮 cadent,但太阳落在第一宫,则以太阳为取用。 用同样的方式检视福点。 *1:这边只有说太阳落在第一宫地平面上,并没有特别说明是否离 asc 五度之内。 *2:这里不清楚究竟是使用 whole sign house 还是 quadrant house systems,或者两者合用? 但推敲文意字词的使用,应该是 whole sign house。 (第一册第七章有使用四分宫位的证据) *3:意即,福点也不能 cadent,且其中一主宰星需要跟福点有相位。 Look at the place in which is the conjunction of the Sun and the Moonor the fullness [of the Moon]. The lord of the term of theascendant. it will harm him[the native] and injury will come to him in the period during whichthis malefic is governor of the prorogation or ray.(*1) If you find themcadent.

ascendant and casting [its] rays to that term in whichthe ascendant is. 光体,福点,以及 SAN 皆 cadent。因此看向 asc(天蝎六度,火星 term) 。火星落第十一宫, 与 asc 有相位,且跟 asc 所在的 term 也有相位。此外,火星的相位除了 by sign 也有 by term; 若火星的相位仅有 by sign,则火星不会有足够的力量胜任 alcocoden。 *:有三个重点。 第一,hyleg 与其一主宰星(通常也会是 alcocoden)需要有相位关系。 其次,在这里,于相位的使用上应是采取 aspect by sign 以及 aspect by bound,而后者似乎也 是整宫相位其效力强弱的进一步指标,因此这应该也能用来间接佐证在取用 hyleg 之时的相 关应用。 最后,若是此推运角度而不以本命 hyleg 取用观之,这边似乎强调着当星座主宰与 bound 主 宰为同颗星时,其主宰指标会随之增强。见下面最后两段。 下面一段开始与 Directing by Term 的应用相关。 So Mars takes over the governorship of the prorogation and ray. Mars indicates in this year(*3) injury from fireand disease. Even though Mars is in a good place.(*1)Until this degree in its prorogation and its ray ends without the rayof any [other](*2). it would be worse. from above it. (*) There is left of the term one degree that belongs toMars. (*5) If it were not that theSun stands between its ray and the ascendant and breaks the power ofMars(* 6). (*4) This misfortune is worse for him [thenative] because the Moon aspects it [Mars]. *1:Asc 度数落在火星 term,因此由火星起运。 *2:意即,asc 走至 bounds 交接处,且没有碰到来自其他星体的相位。 *3:Asc 落在天蝎六度,但火星 term 只主宰到天蝎七度,因此约一年的时间。 *4:即使火星落吉宫,其凶性亦难被完全减免。 (忘了谁说过火星落第十一还是败财且杀 . because it casts to the house and termtogether. it would not havethis power. it is necessary thatit indicates like this. if that casting were to the house only.

and moreover pain will reach him. it wouldincrease the good. Because of thisthe native will be blessed with love from his parents because both ofthese [planets] are in a good place. 天蝎 7~11 度是金星主宰的 bound。因为火星 bound 之后紧接着金星 bound,因此以火金二星 共论。火金皆落吉宫,因此这段时间,命主会受父母宠爱;此外,伤痛也会发生在命主身上。 *:火星配合金星的效用来论断,似乎是星运法的其中一种运用。 Then till the nineteenth degree is the prorogation of Mercury.” 另外参见 Bonatti 的 AnimaAstrologiae 第 57 条。 “To consider whether the significator be in the Eighth from the Ascendant? For if he be there. his enjoyment of women and children will be fromVenus.伤。 )例如 Avraham Ibn Ezra 的 120 Aphorisms 的第 20 条。 *5:见上面第一章倒数后几段。月亮本身为躯体的自然征象星,自然不喜凶星伤。 *6:首见到太阳的光可以阻碍星体的相位(rays)的实际应用。 (但并非有此记载的唯一 古籍) Then the prorogation of the ascendant comes to the term of Venus tillthe eleventh degree. or in the falling [cadent] houses. their power is weakened and itsgift is muddied. and a Fortune. If Jupiter were in a better place than this. but his lament and the death of his child will . Because Mars has left and Venus has entered it isnecessary to mix the power of these two together(*).” Then the prorogation comes toSaturn while Venus casts [its] rays to the twenty-seventh degree ofScorpio from quartile. 天蝎 19~24 度为木星主宰。这段时间命主会因为(之前的)教养等而获得他人的赞美。 虽然木星逆行且没有跟月亮与 asc 有相位,木星的效用还是不会消失;不论是哪颗星体状态 与这样的木星类似,他们的力量都会被减弱并且被扭曲。若是木星在较佳的位置,则所征象 的吉利会更多。 *1:天蝎 6 度起运,因此进入木星 bound 大约是 13、14 岁左右。 *2:我认为这里也很有可能在讲命主受到成年男子所爱。 *3:参见 Avraham Ibn Ezra 的 120 Aphorisms 第 13 条。 “If the helpful planets should be in a position opposite to theircharacter. 天蝎 11~19 度是水星主宰的 bound。这段时间命主会从事学习(教养,修养)之类的活动。 *:很显然,这边的 Directing by Terms 已经是属于星运法的使用。 Then the prorogation at puberty (*1) reaches Jupiter. Likewise if the unfavourable are in thatposition. whenever the planets are thus. so that Saturn and Venus govern this prorogationtogether(*1). and he will many a wife with a dowry.and [a child] will be born to him who will live a short while and diein the third year(*3). If it were not thatJupiter aspects Saturn it would be worse. Saturn indicates his slowness in work and disease anddistance from his land and grief and obstruction and difficulty.(*2) Because of the place ofSaturn his mother will die in this period. and it willindicate praise on account of [his] culture and good from [his]eloquence and the manifestation of [his] ways which are pleasing topeople. then it will exertabsolutely no influence. this will not decrease(*3) itbecause. though he do not harm. but he will acquire goodsbecause Saturn indicates these.(*2) Even though Jupiter is retrograde in motion and does notaspect the Moon and the ascendant. and if noaspect lies between them and the ascending sign. and inthis period(*) he will increase [his] learning and culture and thelike. andthis is worse because Mars is elevated over Saturn. in the house of their dishonour [detriment]. in the house oftheir hatred [fall]. and if he be an Infortune he will do greater mischief than in anyother place of the Figure…….. their harm will be slight. he will do nogood.

天蝎 24~30 度是土星主宰的 bound。 (命主此时约十八、九岁)而金星狮子 27 度的四分相落 在这个 bound 里面,因此这个时期由土星与金星共同主宰。土星表示工作上的散漫,疾病, 以及离乡,悲伤,阻碍与困难,而因为本命火星落在土星的第十宫,因此这些阻碍会更严重。 若非木星跟土星有相位,这些问题会更糟。因为土星的关系,命主的母亲在这段时间内会死, 但命主也会因为土星获得好处;命主将会娶一个(持有遗产的)寡妇,而命主的子嗣会出生 但短命,在三年内会死。命主因女人与子嗣所得的喜乐来自金星,但命主的悲痛与子嗣的死 亡来自土星。 *1:Omar 等人在此推运法的技术应用上,有相同的使用。 *2:八宫木星双子失势,这样的木星跟土星『对冲』 ,根据作者照样能解凶。此外,木土对 冲已经出去 16 度,在这边除非用 whole signaspect,否则根据 moiety 或者 aspect by bound 皆 无法成立。再跳脱出来看,这种推运法,似乎着重的是 aspect byterm,只要有吉星介入状态 不良的 bound 里面,其凶性可解,见上面第一章 Directing byTerm 的部份。另一方面,依照” 本命土星”的状态而言,以 whole sign aspect,木土对冲成立。见下面最后一段。 注译者:这似乎也可间接证明 aspect by bound 多半使用在推运上?本命则以 aspect by sign 为 主。 *3:可能是因为天蝎 24 度至金星狮子 27 度四分相的关系? ? Then the prorogation arrives at Sagittarius. 前一句似乎是讲一般的 Primary Directions, 也就是 hyleg 推移到星体的相位; 后一句则似乎是 . itindicates the last day of his life.be from Saturn. which isthe house of Jupiter and its term. 这里又回到 Directing by Term 本身。注意 asc 走至的 bounds,这些 bounds 的主宰星,以及投 射相位到这些 bounds 里面的星体;注意是来自吉星或凶星的相位,或者吉凶星混合,因为若 是来自凶星的相位,而无吉星介入,则该段星运期为衰恶。 注译者:与 Omar 等人的论述相同。 See which [planet] casts [its] rays in aspect or in being with it [thehaylaj?]. Consider well therays. and he will live after the twelfthdegree forty-eight nights because Saturn is in the beginning of thedegree [at 12. 8"](*2). 接着进入射手座,以及射手座第一个 bound,由木星主宰。因为木星主宰这个星座,以及这 一个 bound,因此木星单独主宰这段时间,而没有其他星体的介入,木星成为主要的指标。 这段时间之内,命主能获得领导力与他人的推崇与荣耀。因为土星落在第十二度,表示命主 的死亡; (最后一句可能是在讲,当 asc 进入射手座后,命主可以再活 12 多年?) *1:但是火星处女 7 度有投射四分相到射手座第一个 bound 里面。再者,这边似乎也再次强 调当星座主宰与 bound 主宰为同颗星体的状况,其主宰指标也会增强。参见上面天蝎六度起 运的部份。 *2:应该是 OA 12 度 48 分? If you want to know how each planet increases the nativity and how itdiminishes it. Because Jupiter makes this place itshouse and its term. 若要进一步观察各星体的对这些星运期的影响,则注意 transits 与本命 hyleg 的各种相位。 and [look] at the term of the ascendant and at the lord of theascendant's term and the planets which are in it. Because Saturn is in the twelfth degree. because if the raysare of malefics without benefics' then it is bad. it governs the prorogation alone without any[other] of the planets [and] it increases its power. then look at the transit of the planets and whichaspects the haylaj from right or left. the first term. and in how many degrees of rising-times in the clime in whichyou are it will arrive at the prorogation. whether of benefics or of malefics or mixed. and hiselevation among them. (*1) It indicatesfor the native leadership and honor among groups of men.

The fourthbook of Dorotheus on the transfer of years. Praise to God — He alone deserves praise and merits it. then his reasoning and his thoughtwill diminish. the lord of that house is the lordof the year. and injury and loss with respect to his property will reach him. If the lord of the sign is western. is in its own house so that it will not cause harm. misfortune will reach the native. the merciful. and in the base nativity how its position was and in which foundationit was.If the planet also is under the Sun's light [in opposition or inferiorconjunction] and is retrograde. and sometimes a sting will happen to him and also evilwill reach him from work in his hand. and some blood and iron and nose-bleed will reach him. The fourthbook of the books of Dorotheus. Similarly theancient wise men of the people of Babylon and Egypt said: If the Sun or theMoon is aspecting this sign from the triplicity of this sign in which it is—they said: if it is thus. If Saturn is as Imentioned above the earth. which is the lord ofthe year. 注意有哪些星体跟『与 hyleg 有相位的星体』有相位,或者是跟 asc 走至的 bound 主宰星或 asc 有相位(应特指 directing byterm 的情况下) 。将这些种种因素混合考量,衡量整体星象吉 凶的强弱, 这些星体在本命盘的位置, 以及在本命盘的相位, 星体状态包括宫位星座以及 bound 主宰等等,并因此来论断。 注译者:这里与 Omar 所言雷同。 The third book of the books of Dorotheus is finished. From the base-nativity is known what is concerning him [the native] atthe beginning of the year. and the beginning of the year is always when the Sunenters the beginning of the minute in which it was on the day of the native'snativity. Look at the lord of this sign.unless God wishes [otherwise]. If it is in thehouse of its enemy. then it will be better for him and it will be good. Thus count from the ascendent a year for each signuntil you reach the year which you desire. andworry and grief and disease will reach him . and judge inaccordance with how you find them. then make sure that the planet. and his reasoning will drain off to the right and left andvarious places. to Whom I have recourse. p. If it isthus and it is Mars which governs the year.指 Directing by Term,Asc 碰到星体相位的状况。 Consider that planet which casts [its] rays to the planet which aspectsit [the haylaj?] or [is] with it and the lord of the prorogation. thenmix them together in proportion to their maleficence and theirbeneficence and their power in the places and the planets' aspect ofthem and their portions and their terms and their houses.If the planet is under the Sun's rays and is increasing in counting and notdecreasing. and he will be in exile from his city. and pleurisy and injury. When anative is born. the lord of the year is the lord of the house [ascendent] inwhich the native was born. or he will go on a journey in which [there will be] no goodand no profit. and sometimes the disease and injurywill be difficult. whether it is a benefic or amalefic.245 In the nameof God. and hisproperty will diminish. then it will be worse for its evil because he [the native]will be sick. and frustration in everything. relating to the transfer of years. or [adefect] in [his] reasoning and his logic. then [something] similar to this [will happen]. then it is bad with respect to [his] property anddisease will reach him in his body from cold. the compassionate.

and his hope will be cut off exceptfor what God wills. If the year reaches the sign in which Saturn was and Saturn is init or aspects it from trine or quartile or the seventh.then the native will be an owner of land and crops and plants and everythingnew. If Venus is the lord of theyear [and is] eastern. then injury will reach him from commerce or from an associate orfrom a book and computation or from slaves. and every work in his hand will be completed. he will marry and will have children. If Venus is thus. If it is Mercury [and it is] eastern in a good place. and the man will increase in[his] reasoning. Valens alsosaid: Look at the planet which is the lord of that year. If it is Jupiter and it is in its ownlight. then see at that hour in which this degree rises what [is] theascendent. and some of them the government will be angry at andtreat as an enemy. then injury will reach him from women. then know to how many [degrees] it is fromthat degree in which it was on the day of the native's birth. If Mercury is governing the year and is under theSun's light. then the native willhave a bad reputation. and the evil will debilitatehim. then make thatsign the ascendent of the year. if [Venus] is goodin its position in the base[-nativity]. then he willhave a good reputation among the nobles. if children arenecessary for him. if it is seen on theday on which the Sun enters the minute in which it was on the day of thenative's birth. then he will have a son-in-law as well and his property willincrease. then joy and marriage and good will reach him on accountof women. which [is] the sign which rises from the East. If Saturn is lord of the year and is eastern in its own light. and he will dig canals and rivers. the lord of the year. so that if he has attained[the age of] marriage. If the year reaches where Marswas and Mars is as I told you in the case of Saturn. then he will attain good. Ithen injury and hostility from men will reach him. then itis not maleficent. then the evil will beworse. but will run away and will be discovered in a crime [leading]to exile and haste [in departing]. then some evil similar towhat I said above this will reach him. andquarrels and an ugly blemish. but he will not receive it. . then the workwhich is in it he will quickly make a success of. and his property will diminishwithout it being robbed and without his being pleased by it. If the year reaches the place of Jupiterand Jupiter is in it or aspects it as I mentioned above.and he will be exalted above the nobles. if this is [the situation) and Mars aspects it also.then they will inherit their fathers' property. if this is necessary for him. Look at where theMoon is and in which sign it is. and sometimesproperty and the good will be offered to him. [and it is] eastern. then the disease will be minimized. If the year reaches where Mercury wasand Mercury is good. Now I willmake clear to you [what happens] if the year reaches where the planets were inthe nativity. then calamity and grief will reach the native in this year and he will beafraid of kings and their anger. If the lordof this sign is Mars. and there will reach him folly and injury and hostilityfrom men and [his] city. If Jupiter aspects thesemalefics.from his work. some cutting with iron will reach him or strangulation or burning infire or sweat and fever.then he will have little greed for property. If the year reaches the place of Mars and Mars and Saturn aspect thissign. with the help of God. If the year reaches where Venus was. appearing from under the rays [of the Sun and] eastern. and he will be told what he should not make. then he [the native] will notwork at anything. but is beneficent. If it is Jupiter. then. but so that hewill be pleased or will have kindness from the town of his fathers or from[his] children. If the year reaches the cardine [under] the earth or thecardine of the West and Saturn is in it or aspects it as I mentioned above. If the year reaches the place of a maleficwhich is in it or [if] another malefic is in it. then he willaccumulate property and attain good from wisdom and opinion and science and agood reputation. admirable. and if children are judged for him.

then it is worse. If it was in a good place in the base-nativity but is in a bad placewhen you look. there is no good init. know which of the seven is the lord of thatsign which you have reached. then there is no goodin it also. and it isworst for this [native] if it is increasing in light and decreasing incounting. If at the turning of the years it reaches [what was] thetenth sign at the hour [in which] he was born [and] . If Saturn and Mars are aspecting.wherever the number is used up. his workwill increase. look at the Moonon what side [of the ecliptic] it is. and this planet will be the lord of the month atthe hour of the native's birth. then good and honor and joy and children will reach thenative. Similarly [in the case of) themonths also. then it is good if it is increasing with regard to the length ofdaylight..then its condition is middling between this [and that]. then it is good. If itreaches at the turning of the years the place in which the Moon was and Saturnis aspecting it. then mark off from the sign and degree and minute in which theMoon was at the hour of the native's birth. see where the Sun and Moon are at the time forwhich you wish to know this. If the Moon is the lord of the month. and he will not attain good. then the matter of this native is middling between this [andthat]. and a severe pain or grief for [his] propertywill reach him. If the benefics aspect them. If the lord of the month is in a good place. or he will be likethe form of a madman. then cast itfrom that which was the ascendant at the hour of the native's birth. rejoicesin it. it will be worse for this [native] if it is not visible in the East and isunder the Sun's light. Together with this look also at the planets. then he will be ashamed of his children and willgrieve on account of [his] slaves. If the benefics are not aspecting. If Mars is with it [Saturn]. If Saturn aspects it. if the Sun is lord ofthe month. and murder and sorrow and disasters from the dead will reachhim.and [children] will be born tohim. then it will be good [and[ elevated. then hisproperty and his good will diminish. then disease will reach this native and his body will wasteaway. and is strong in its light. then the malefic will destroythe mother of that native in that month. and hewill fall from a distant place. and he will grieve for his relatives. If you wantto know this. but if it is in a decreasein light and is increasing in counting. then it diminishes from the evil ofthe malefics. blood anddisasters from fire will reach him. then itis good. thenthis is a difficult indication. If it was in a place without good in the base-nativity and is in a placewithout good when you look.which of the seven [planets] aspects it. It is necessary together with this that you look at the witnessesof the planets. Whereverthat number is used up. then there will be no good in it. then there is no good in it. Look at thatsign which it reaches at the turning of the years and the seventh sign from it. and murder and grief will reach him. and hot diseases will reach him. is in it or aspects it. If Saturn and Mars or one of the twois in the seventh. but it is worse for this [native] if it is decreasing from the lengthof daylight. then the maleficence is strong. and was thus in the base-nativity. but if it is descending and decreasing in counting. Ifat the turning of the years it reaches the sign which was the fourth or theseventh and Saturn is in it or aspects it from the fourth or the seventh. If Mercury is aspecting Saturn. Now I willmake the matter of months clear to you so that you will know them.. and he will marry a wife.then every evil and misfortune will reach this native and no good will reachhim [save] from God. If Jupiter and Venus alsoare in it. If it is ascending and increasing incounting. then it will be worse for him. then subtract it from the ascendent. see which of the planets . If it reaches the ascendent at the turning of the years and Jupiter andVenus aspect it. If you wantto know the ruler of the days. then count from the Sun to the Moon. if the malefics aspect them or are in them.

Leo the two sides and the heart. you make each year three hundred and sixty-fivedays and a fourth of a day. then subtract successive sevens. then this native [will be] one who loveswine. then a cutting with iron will reach him. Look at the sixth sign from[the sign of] life and know [whose] house it is of the seven. If the two[sign and lord] are bad together and their base is of moisture. they saw what wasthe lord of that sign. First you subtract the number from forty-ninedays so that what is left over is less than forty-nine days. and a long-lasting pain will seize him. Gemini the two shoulders. it is also necessaryfor you to convert all the years into days from the first day of the native'sbirth till the day which you wish. Scorpio the male[organ] and the two testicles and the buttocks. If this sign isthe house of Venus. [With regard to] the days. There weremen among the ancient scientists who calculated by day from Saturn to Mars andby night from Mars to Saturn. These are the disasters if this planet isshining [and] luminous. and his hearing will decrease. but if this is covered up tinder the Sun's light thenpain or torment will reach him. theirmalady will seize him like the form of a madman. his reason and his [sense of]shame will depart in the search for women. then reverse it. It is necessary that you know the place of that sign and its nature. and some of them will be transfixed by a spear. . these disasters will seize him. If this is reverse. then disasterswill reach this native from pain due to moisture and cold and pain in hisjoints. If the planet which aspects the Moon is abenefic at the beginning of fifteen degrees [within its sign]. andwretchedness in his throat will seize him. then disease and evil will reach them [the natives]. Cancer the two hands and the chest.and many disasters will reach him. Wherever the number of days isused up. it will be worse for this [native]if Venus is in a masculine sign. If this sign is the house of Mercury. then they cast their number from the ascendent. then this daywill be hard for the native. which of thebenefics and malefics aspects it. If the Moonis in that sign which the days reached and a malefic was in that sign in thenativity. then thereputation of this native will be spoiled and his words. then his case will bemiddling. and look at thebase of this sign — whether it is one of the human signs or one of the quadrupedsor the wild animal signs.then they predicted that the chronic illness [would be] in such and such a limbof the body according to what was named for that sign. and a pain in his heart will reach him from the Sun. know which is that planet and in which sign the Moon is. If the sign is the house ofMars. and his liver will swell.then to the first which follows [it]. Look at the Moon. then look at the lord of the sign and know what itsbase and nature are.[is] the lord of that sign asit is the ruler of the days. and he will diefrom this. Sagittarius the two thighstogether. Similarly if theplace is bad [and] if a malefic aspects it at that time or this is the sign inwhich Saturn or Mars was in the base-nativity and this sign is the house of[one of] the malefics but benefics aspect it in transit. and he will be burned in a fire. and his belly will be split. then seven to [the planet] whichfollows it until your number of days is used up. and give eachplanet of the seven seven and begin from the planet which was in the ascendent. but on that night he will find rest and recovery inthe morning.or dogs or lions will bite him.Taurus the neck. then give seven tothe lord of the sign of life [the ascendent]. Aries is the head. Libra the bladder which is between the two hips. and apain in his spleen will reach him from the Moon. then a chronic illness in hiseyes will reach him. If this sign is the house of the Sunor the house of the Moon or the house of Mars.wherever their counting reached or the number was used up.If that sign is the house of Jupiter. then they said to what limb of the body this sign belonged. and he will not beabout to speak except in misery. Now I willmake clear to you a section on chronic illness. then the disasters will be from the love of women. Virgo the belly and the tube of the back[spine].

then a chronic illnessin his eyes will reach this native. If any of the seven is init. and it will be worse for this if the Sun and the Moon arein the [sign of] life and the malefics are setting after the Sun and the Moon. If the malefic are rising after the Sun and the Moon or themalefics are with the Sun and the Moon or the malefics are greater in degrees [withina sign] than the Sun and the Moon. which planet it is. then disasters will reach the native in his eye or hisvision will depart. look from the tenth sign to the sign of life. or some of the animals of the sea willdevour him.This will happen also if the Sun and the Moon are in the West and you find themalefics in the cardines.. There werealso some of the ancient scientists who looked at the body of men from theMoon.. so that they might say that the chronic illnessis in this limb of the body of men. then itindicates that this native will see a little with his eyes. and Mars is seen by Jupiter. If Saturn is in the place of Mars.If the Sun rises after it [the Moon] or if the Sun is rising at the Moon'srising and Mars is between the two of them. Look atthis planet and the lot of chronic illness which I mentioned to you.. if this sign is one of the quadruped signs or one of the human signsor one of the watery signs — and they were looking at this sign. said: if theMoon and the lot are in the eleventh from the ascendent and Mars is in thesecond. then the state of this native willalso be thus. Look at thecardine.. Aquarius the two shanks. If the Moon is aspecting Mars from the seventh and the Moon is full oflight or Mars is rising after the Moon. and the lord of its triplicity by dayand the lord of its triplicity by night. If Mars is with the Sun in the seventh from the ascendent. and it will be worse for this [native]if it is Mars because nothing will cover up the evil of Mars except God alone. then this native willfall from a high. They said: If the malefics are aspecting the Moon from quartile or fromthe seventh — and they were looking at life from the ascendent and Venus andMercury (and the malefics aspect them) and the nature of the place in whichthey are. If Mars is with the Sun in the [sign of] life. then the state ofthe native will be thus. and the Sun and the Moon are in theseventh. The ancientscientists among the people of Babylon and Egypt. [that]from Mars to Saturn.then there will be no good in it. thenthese disasters will be from water. As for the Moon.which is the house of marriage. all of them. Death is knownfrom the first lord of its triplicity. [but] if there is none of the seven init. then the left side will be named.Capricorn the two knees. . butSaturn is aspecting it from the fourth or from the seventh.the truth of the world. If Saturn and Marsare rising after the Sun and the Moon. If the Moon is with Saturn in Sagittarius. if the Sun is like this. chronic illness from the second. then the body of this native will be broken and his joints will wasteaway. if this sign is one of the moist signs. then a chronic illness in his eyes willreach this native. his state will alsobe thus. If Mars is in the second sign from the Sun's sign orfrom the Moon's sign. then the state of the native will be thus. the fourth from the ascendent. then judge for this that chronic illness in his eyes will reach thisnative. all of them. We take this and we desire that you know it and tell it towhoever asks you the true way of science.. and it will be worse for this [native] if thefullness of the Moon is like the Sun. If the Sun and the Moon are in oneof those places which I mentioned. then the right side will be named. then achronic illness in his eyes will reach him. If also the Moon is in Sagittarius. [and] Pisces thetwo feet. If you wantto know whether this chronic illness will be on the right side or on the leftside. to which of thelimbs of the body it belongs. but if Jupiter is aspecting the Sun. elevated place..

then this native. so that he will die in his chronicillness. I said thatthis is in the calculation of the indication of the base[-nativity]. orthe malefics are with the Moon. If the malefics aspectit. If the Moon is with the malefics because of which occurs thechronic illness or [if] it is aspecting them from the fourth. then also his case will be thus. the stinger of the scorpion in twenty-threedegrees of Scorpio.. If the Moonis in Taurus or a sign cut off at the base while Mars [is] in a part[dodecatemorion?] of the house of life aspecting it from the seventh. then achronic illness in his eyes will reach him. Ifthe Sun and the Moon are in the same sign and Mars is between them while Saturnis aspecting them and rising after them.and there will be darkness in his eye or his eye will be spoiled. as then the chronic illness will reachhim in these —his right side and his right eye and his right hand.What is saidin this is according to the calculation of the indication of thebase[-nativity]. If they are thus in that position and thebenefics are rising after them.. If thenativity is by night while the Moon is in a place that the malefics spoil. then a chronic illness in his body will reach this native.. If themalefics are aspecting the Sun and the Moon from the fourth or seventh. Look at thetwelfth portion [dodecatemorion] of the Sun and Moon. not of the transfer. See if thenativity is by day while the Sun is bad. then madnesswill seize this native and he will have no reason. but discomfort will not get hold of him by the decree of God. know thisif God wills. If Mars isin the sign of life or in the seventh sign and the Moon is aspecting Mars fromthe seventh (it is worse for this [native] if the Moon is decreasing in light). so know this. then achronic illness in his eye will reach this native. the Pleiades in six degrees up to the ninth degree of Taurus. the ninth degree of Cancer. It will bethus also if Mars is within five signs from the [sign of] life and the Moon isaspecting it from the seventh. then thisnative [will have] darkness in his eye. If the year of the nativityis transferred while the Moon is blockaded between the two malefics. the nativewill dread this. then this native will not have . and he will not be aware ofwhat he is doing. that time is the first day of the month when the new moon appears.then this native will have little life and madness will seize him. the face of the scorpion and its eyes in eight degrees andnine degrees and ten degrees of Scorpio. will be blue in [his] eye. then oneof the limbs of this native will be cut off by iron so that that limb will bewretched because of it. but his eye will not beblinded. If Saturn is in the house of life or in the tenth while theMoon is in the seventh. then the benefics are spoiled in this [and]injured. neither because of the remedy ofphysicians nor by asking God for health. The ancientsamong scientists wrote the judgment: If the Moon is in [certain] signs anddegrees and the malefics are aspecting it from the fourth or the seventh. it will be worse forhim if the Moon is with Mars. the point of the arrow in threedegrees of Sagittarius. then this nativewill not escape from the chronic illness. If the Moon is in one of these places and themalefics are aspecting them while [the Moon] is decreasing in light.and he will escape from the aggregate of ailments and misfortunes. The mane ofthe lion in Leo eighteen degrees. thenthe chronic illness will reach him in these — the left side and the left eyeand the left hand. If the Moon is full of light. If Jupiteris in the seventh and the Moon is with Mars in the house of life.

it will be worsefor this [native] if the other malefics are aspecting the Moon. then all of thesediseases will seize her and together with all these diseases other diseaseswill reach her because her belly will swell up and her child will not live. Look withyour intellect and your heart at that planet. If the Moon is inAries or in Taurus and Saturn and Mars are with it. If the Moon isleaving Saturn. If Mars and Saturn areaspecting Venus and the Moon. If theMoon is leaving the benefics [and] then conjoining with the malefics within thethirty degrees of the sign in which it is. . then this nativewill be a leper. then that chronic illness will be at thebeginning of his life. thenthis native will be a midget. and he will not be able to speak. If this native is a girl. or he will be stammering. then leprosy and erysipelaswill seize him. If the benefics areaspecting them or rising after them. If the native isa girl. IfSaturn is aspecting Mercury. and his body will swell up. and his bell will be split open. If it is in the North. then a pain of the blood will seize him in [his] belly but themedicine of doctors will help him. and a pain in the spleen will seize some of them. a prayer-leader in a mosque or the like. If Saturn and Venus are in the tenth and theMoon is in the tenth and Mars is aspecting them. Look at that planet. that the native will benamed Mercury or with the name of the Moon.If the Moon and Jupiter are in the house of life and Mars is aspecting themfrom the seventh. whether it is seen in the East orin the West. it will be worse for this [native] if the two[malefics] are in the sixth and twelfth sign from the [sign of] life. the shortest of all men. and a pain of coldness will seize him. and his livelihood will befrom this.If this is in the eighth sign. then he will escape from this misfortune. then this native will have nostrength and no power. then this native will not have reason. then this native will not beable to have intercourse with women and will be a vicious man. and he will ask for adrink. notspeaking except with difficulty. If this native is a girl. then he will be one who does the work of God inworship. If the Moonis leaving Mars. then this native will be effeminate. If the Moon is in thirty degrees ofthe sign in which it is and Saturn is aspecting the Moon from the fourth. then a pain in the belly will seize him. then that chronic illness will bein the middle of his life.reason. If Saturnand Mars are in the same sign and the Moon is between them. one who has lost [his]reason. If the Moonis under the Sun's light or is decreasing in light and is leaving the maleficswhile these malefics are in the cardines. and he will be emaciated [and] sick. then every misery will reach this native in his body. then it is worse. IfJupiter is aspecting these two. if it is seen in theWest. then this native will be healthy forhalf his life. it will be worse for him. then she will not marry and will have no children. then he will be dumb. then she will bebarren [and] will not give birth. then the male [organ] of this native and histesticles will be cut off with iron. and a cough will seize him. and scabies and itching will seize him. if [the illness] is from it andit is on the side of the East. If it is in the South. and this. and his pain will last a longtime. buther child will be cut off in her belly but she will keep the black bile. If Jupiter is in the place of Venus or Mercury is in [one of] thehouses of these two or Mercury is with Jupiter (it is worse for this [native]if the two are in a sign possessing two bodies and the malefics are aspectingthem). then after this he will swell up and diseases will seize himfrom which he will not escape. then that chronic illnesswill be in his old age. it is more ideal and it will be good if he is treated in his youth. If Saturnand Mars are in the second sign and are aspecting the Moon while Jupiter is notaspecting the Moon. and his belly willdefecate. If it is seen in the East.

what it is and which ofthe seven aspects the eighth sign. then this native willdie by fire. or animals or hogswill vie [with him]. They look at the lord of the eighth sign. and the malefics aspect the Moon. If Saturn is in a moist place. the fourth. then he will diefrom the anger of kings. . then this native will die a difficult death. then the death of this native will also be thus. If the Moon is standing in the seventh. If the lord of the eighth sign is in itsplace. and at thelords of its triplicity as I wrote for you above this. then this will reach him from the anger of kings or the angerof a great man so that he will be killed or crucified on a post. but they saw which of the two would be more quicklycadent in the West so that from that one they might judge death for him. If Mercury is the lord of the eighth sign. If the malefics are rising after the seventh sign or are aspectingit from the seventh (it will be worse for this [native] if the malefics are incardines). Also therewere some of those learned in the stars who counted from the Moon to theeighth. or a lion and a tiger will slay him. If the lord ofthe eighth is in its own place. then this native will die because of women or by means of poison anddrinking a drug. theseventh. If the malefics are aspecting from the eighth and thelord of the eighth is corrupted with no good in it and the lord of the eighthis not in its own place. then thieves will fall upon this native and kill [him] or[his] enemies will kill him in a fight or he will burn in a fire or an animalfrom among the earthy animals will bite him or lions will devour him. There weresome of the learned in stars who looked at the cardine. thenhe will die in exile from his land. then this native will die in his own land andin his place and among his people. If Mars isin the tenth but not in the cardines while the Moon is in a cardine.If Mars is under the Sun's light.they said that this native will die in the water or the belly of a sea monsteror a fish.Now I willmake clear to you the matter of death. wherever it reached. If theSun is with Mars. then cast it out from Saturn. If Mars stands in the seventh and Mars is thelord of the seventh.but his death will be better for him. If the lord of theeighth sign is Mars. Many men of the learned have spokenregarding death. which it was and which [planet] was the lord of that sign. If the seventh and its lord are malefic and the lord of theseventh is aspecting the house of life and the Moon is aspecting the house oflife. If the lord of the eighth sign is Saturn andSaturn is in the place of the West. they looked at thatsign. [and] thenthey judged good or evil for him. If the lord of this eighth sign is not in its place. then this native will kill himself with his own hand. some of them look at the base of the eighth sign from the[sign of] life so that they may see what is the base of this sign and itsnature and know whether it is one of the watery signs I or one of the dry signsor one of the human signs or one of the quadruped signs or one of the wildanimal signs. The first of the lordsof the triplicity indicates death and the second indicates chronic illness. Some of them calculate the seventh sign and the lord of its triplicity[and] then judge death for him. they saidthat this native will fall from a high place and will die. Some of themlooked at that planet which reached to the degree of the seventh. If the Sun is with Saturn. then this native will die on a journey. or his middlewill be cut with a sword. and not inthe casting [of rays]. then thenative will die at the peak of a mountain. then they asserted a judgment for him thatthis native will die in other than his own land. If the sign in which Saturn is is one of the earthy signs.When the two are together in a place in which [there is] no good. then this pain will strike this native in anotherlimb of his body. if Godwills. then the neck of this native I will be struck by a sword. If this eighth place and its lord arebenefic [and] are corrupted. then enemies and thieves will killthis native.

but if it is retrograde. If the nativepasses thirty years. If Venus is in theseventh house and the Moon is in a house strange to it and the malefics arewith it. or [if] Saturn is reaching the place in which the Moon wasby night. then he will die because of his motherand his father's wife. It is worse for this [native] if a malefic is in it as disasters willreach this native in his body and quarrels with his father.then this native will fall from a high place and will die from it. Look at thenature of the sign as. If the first lord of the triplicity is in the fourth or in the seventh. and if it is one of the watery signs. then he will diebecause of men. it is worse for this [native] if the twoin the base-nativity were in a place in which [there is] no good..then this native will die and not one of men will appear to him. If it reaches that place which it had reached on the day ofthe native's birth. then this native will die in fire or in water. If the lord of the seventh sign is a malefic and isunder the Sun's light. If the benefics are in their triplicities. If the Sun is eclipsed in the seventh signor the Moon is passing from a degree which aspects I the degree in which theSun is. If Saturn or Marsis in the triplicity of that sign in which it was on the day of the native'sbirth. [but] then they died. then this nativewill die publicly. it also is malefic. then it will be more perfect than that if they are both in the fourth orthe seventh. If Mars is like Venus. then he will die because of his mother and hisancestors. If the malefic are with the Moon or the othermalefics are aspecting the Moon from the seventh. if it is one of the human signs. if it is aspecting the house of life. and many people will diewith him.then this native will kill himself. and they said that this man will be named as a messenger. then [he will die] because of hisbrothers. Look at thenature of this sign. then he will die becauseof water. If that[planet] from which is the chronic illness is in the seventh. If it is the Sun.then judgefor him with your intellect at the native's birth that he will die a difficultdeath. then it will . Now I willalso make clear to you the transfer of some of the seven to the places of theothers. and if the lord of the seventh is in a place in which[there is] no good or is in the tenth while the malefics are with the Moon. then he will die because ofquadrupeds or lions will eat him. then the death of this native will be because of a woman who has hadmany husbands. but if the benefics are. and they willnot know how he died. then this native will die from [his] slaves or from amatter which no one knows. If the malefics are in their triplicities. then this native willattain good. and his suffering will be prolonged. If the lordof the lot of the seventh is with the lot of luck and the malefics aredeterminative.it will be worse for him. If the Moon is like Venus. isaspecting the Sun from the fourth or the seventh but not aspecting the Moon. then it is difficult inits maleficence. then he will die because of his friends. If the malefics are in right quartile. then he will die fromsurgery. If Jupiter is like Venus. then he will diebecause of [his] children or from his good name and good reputation which theywill be envious of. It is worse for this [native] and moredifficult in its maleficence if Mars is reaching the place in which Jupiter orthe Sun was by day. If this planet is seen in the East. If the Moon is in a new sign when it shines from the Sun and. then it will be good [and] his face willbe clear. then [there will be] nogood in it. then it will harm thisnative because the lord of the triplicity [being] Mars by day and Saturn bynight is the worst of what might be. then this native will die from adrug in which [there is] no good. then this nativewill be chronically ill [and] miserable. As each planet of the seven reaches the place which it aspected fromthe seventh on the day on which that native was born.. and if it is one of the quadruped signs.

then good will reach this native. then thisnative will rejoice and will be cheerful. inthe turning of the years. If Saturn reaches the place in which it was inthe turning of the years. then the native will prosper and triumph over hisenemies and obtain his income. If in the base-nativity Saturn and Mars werein their places in which [there is] no good. then grief will reach this native because of his father andhis state with regard to work and the authority of kings will be spoiled. then it will spoilthe native's heart and it will spoil him. If the Moon reaches the Sun's placein the turning of the years. then fever and a hot temperature and a hot pain will seize thisnative in this year. then these twospoil the goodness of Jupiter. If the Moon reaches the cardine. then these two diminish from their good. If the Moon reaches the house oflife. then itwill diminish from that good which belonged to this native in that year. then the life of this native will be spoiled. If Marsreaches Saturn's place in the turning of the years. IfMars reaches the Moon's place in I the turning of the years. If Jupiterreaches Saturn's place in the turning of the years. then good willincrease with regard to the native's properties and he will be victorious overhis enemies in that year. If Mars reaches Venus' or Jupiter's place in the turning of the years. and he will disgrace himself. then in that year this native's property willbe wasted in fornication. then it will ameliorate thesoul of the native and make it firm and render him] victorious over hisenemies. and he will attain property and good. If Saturnand Mars reach Jupiter's place in the turning of the years. or around[that] year. IfJupiter reaches Mars' place in the turning of the years.then it will take away all the native's good in that year.. the seventh. then it will remove thecorruption of Saturn in that year. but if this native talks himself into [making] awill. and he will be greedy. then a pain willreach this native in his body. If the Moonreaches Mars' place or the Sun's place while the Sun or Mars is in the place[in which it was] on the day of the native's birth. then it will be good. then cold willseize this native in this year. the fourth. and it will destroy his reason. If Saturn is with the Moon.. and he himself will be wicked. the tenth. . then the work of this native in this year will be publiclyin accordance with the aspect of the benefics or the malefics. unless the benefics are aspectingthe Moon. then this native will becheerful and will rejoice. If Saturn and Mars reach the place of Venus andMercury in the turning of the years.If [Jupiter] reaches . it will also be thus if Mars reaches Saturn's place. If the Moon reaches thecardine. If Saturn and Mars are rising after cardines. so [if] at the turning of theyears the benefics also are in a place in which [there is] no good. If it reachesthe cardine. if the father of thenative is alive. then disasters will immediately reach this native.diminish from the disasters of Saturn. [it will be] concerning a secret matter which he willconceal and keep quiet about. If the Moonreaches its own place in the turning of the years. then the blood will beexpelled from this native's body. If the Moon is with Venus and Jupiter. then also quarrelsand misery will reach this native.If Saturn reaches Mars' place in the turning of the years. If the Moon reaches Mars' place. If the Moon reachesMercury's place in the turning of the years. then this native will do some workin accordance with the nature of Mercury. If the Moon reaches Venus' place and themalefics are not with the Moon.[and] people will know about him. then afterwards he will use his intellect and bevictorious over his enemies [with] trouble and difficulty. then it will be good in what belongs to the nativeafter his day [?]. If Mars is under theSun's light.

and disaster will reach him in his property. If Mercury reaches Mars'place. Now I willmake clear to you the matter of the cardines. .if they are darkened.If Venusreaches Jupiter's place in the turning of the years. If theplanets are luminous in these four cardines. From the cardine. then [there will be] no good in it. Look concerning these fourcardines: the appraisal of the native is known from the ascendent which is thefirst cardine. then [there will be] no good in it.After youth look at the cardine. then his work will be good and he will attaingood. then this native's heart will be strong in every falsehood. about interrogations. The fourthbook of Dorotheus on the revolution of the years of the nativity is completedby the praise and grace of God. From the cardine. If Mercuryreaches the benefics' place. then hewill be good in [his] work. buthe will remove grief and hardship from himself. [and] grief and quarrels will reach the native inthis year. but a bad reputation in the matter of women will bespread against him. If the malefics arein the cardines. the matter of children and of work is known from the tenth. follows it. If Venus reaches the Moon's place in the turning of the years. then this native will attain good. If Mercury reaches the Moon's place. If neither the beneficsnor the malefics aspect it. it will be better for this [native] ifthis native desires entry to [the palaces of] kings. andsheds light on the eyes of the messengers who sent them forth to creation. then this native willworry and will persuade himself of what has no good in it. then [there will be] no good in it. the fourth. If Venus reaches the Sun's place. thematter of women and of marriage is known from the cardine. If Marsreaches Mercury's place in the turning of the years. Look at the cardines because the ascendent givesthe matter of youth. then this native will not be good in his work. then [there will be] no good in it. the fourth. and he will treathis friends as enemies. the tenth. and its gift [lasts] until the bodyof this native becomes warm and hair grows on his pubic area and he lovessexual intercourse. andthe darkness in their eyes is raised up I for the people of the world.and the matter of body and of property is known from the prorogation of thedegrees and [their] varieties. If Venus reachesMercury's place in the turning of the years. IfMercury reaches Venus' place.and it will diminish the strength of this native for sexual intercourse [sothat] the native will be insignificant in this. the seventh. from that place at which the Sun rises from the water. then it will be good. then he will be good in all work. will be the gift of old age. If Mercury reaches Jupiter'splace. then thenative will leave him in anger and will not look at anyone. then [he will have] nogood in the case of women. and their slaveswill scorn some of them. The fifthbook. and the Sun sets and darkens[their] eyes. If the Sun and the Moon are inthe malefics' places. then it will spoil the lifeof that native and disasters will reach him because of women. If Venus reaches Mars' place in the turning of the years. then the body of this native will becured and the pain in his joints will depart. then it will increase the native'swork. is known the gift of death. and his opinion of them will be low. the seventh. thematter of old age and of the end of life is known from the cardine. if it reaches themalefics' place.
