HoRAKY AsTROLOG\', which the Author has more palatahly dcnominated PKOGNOSTIC ASTRONO)I\, is the
sublime art of foreseeing events (10111 the position of
the hcavenly bo<lics, thc stars.-which wcrc madc hy
Omnipotcnce for sig11s of things to come, and for
scasons, and for d;.ys, and for years,"--at the moment
the questio11 is seriously propounded, or when an individual may be non hypocritically anxious about any
i111porta11t matter, the result of any business, or any
circumstance on the tapis with which he may he con-

ncctc<l. An<l if thc pany hc not an artist himsclf, hc

may by the succinct, pcrspicuous, and correct rules in
this book, solve any question which comes within the
jurisdiction o /udicial Astrology, This part of the
science o Astra Philosophy is the casiest understood,
and the most advantiigeous to mankind.
1 he Art o{ solving Horary Qucstions is founded
upon tho!.e inexplicablc or miraculous sy111patl1ttic
propcrtics which are universally found to exist more
or less throughout the natural creation. Of these
wonder-striking sympathies, there can be no doubt
in thc philosophic mind; lmt the vegelive sou! of the
world mvisibly carries, and inseparably unites a
specific virtue from the starry heavens betwecn onc
thmg and another, which goes under the nickname of
gravitation, ever working those secret efforts, which
no reflective mind can fail to warmly admire. ln the
present case, who is to determine what this soul
cannot effect between the heavenly bodies and the
animal spirit of man ? working such uniorm sympathies, as that a question of importance cannot start
from the mind, hut in a sympathetic point of time at
which the planets and signs of the zodiac governing


the person's birth, and acting upon the very subject
tbat engages the thoughts and attention Hence, the
birth of the question carries the story of the whole
matter in hand on its forehead I And hence, also,
follows that skill in natural prediction by which the
artist can satisfy, by the rulcs in this hook, those
douhts to which the mind of every man is more or
less subject; by this simple and easy, but beautiul
theory, as well as Abiathar the priest was by the stars
ol the epho, which presumes that the samc sym
pathetic power which causes thc iron and magnet to
approach each other-the waters to approach the
luminaries-the planets to revolve in circles around
the central god of day-which inlucnccs thc needlc
to point to the earth's magnetic pole-which, by
occult sympathy, influences the unhorn fu:tus in the
womb, and produces correspon<ling marks with the
mother's wants and fears-the sarne sympathetic in
stinct which induces the child to approach the nipple
-which induces animais to feel the approach of
danger; also of changes in the atmosphere, and thus
to oretell rain. The same occult influence which
drives the frantic herd about thc pasturcs, which
afrects the brain oi the maniac, or which, circulating
through all living nature, pcrvading ali, disquieting
ali, evcn to thc minutcst swarms that fali in thc hcavy
dews, when the sky means to lowcr, this universal
sympathy is neither more or less than the poi.,,fi,J
tcJl11"1 of llu luat1enly bodus, and is the ji,sl pcrvading
cause o every anxious and ardent doubt to which the
mind is subject, or upon which the mind dwells with
eagemess and desire, if possible, to know the result.
Ali instinct is hut sympathy, and the sarne common
af&nity between vanous parts of matter, which induces rats to orsake a falling house ; ants to quit
tbeir nests, carrying their young with them, before
ao inundation ; dogs to foretell disasters by strange
barkings and whinings, will enablc a human being
to propose a horary question at the very moment the



heavcns are particularly disposcd to give a corrcct

solution. Such was the foeling o David whcn in
I<cilah, where he hear<l that Saul was coming to lie
sicge him, was <lesirous of knowing thc trnth, whether
Saul was coming or not; and if hc was, IV/iellitr llu
111e11 o/ Keilal, wo11ld be tr,,e to J,im, o, wo11/d bet"'J' liim.
An<l heing informed thcv woul<l betray him into the
han<ls of his enemy, who was sccking his life, hc fled
into the wilderncss of Ziph, an<l escape<l the danger
lhat was impcn<ling over him. Hcnce, Naturc, in thi:casc, is always founll to accommo<late hcrsclf to evcry
cmcrgcncy, by a chart of thc hcavcns, cast at lhe
mumcnt when the dcsire is most arllent, an<l thc
qucrent possessed of faith on thc suliject. For wc
know ali perso11s, who have any provisional carc, or
honcst, honourahle concern for themsclvcs and others,
are desirous to know, nay, freclucntly won<lcr with
trcmulous cxpcctations, what s 1all l>e the evcnt, or
cn<l, o this or that undertaking. The true issue can
l,e known, as this Work will prove satisactorily when
solve~ by the rulcs hcrtin. And thcre is nothing, be
it remembcred, in it, eithcr of b/ack a,t, or wl,ite art,
or any other art, than thc A1n ni: Taun1, conse
qucntly neither angelical nor dial,olical, meritonous
nor criminal, good nor cvil. A pcr!;On is e<111ally as
justifial>lc in makin~ an cn<Juiry in one thin~ as
anothcr; an<l to propose a horary qucstion is an act
as in<liffcrent in itself as to ask what u clock it is, or
does it r.iin, that l may provide myse-lf to go out in
it so as to escap'! <letriment. This cont11ins nothing
supernatural or devilish ; for it is nature itself, oper
ating in its usual way.
Scctarian bigots, ignorant enthusiasts, an<l religious
hypocrites, say it is wrong to wish to know what shall
l>efall them in this or that undertaking at a uture
day. Let us ask, Have you not anxious desires about
your uturc prosperitf or a<lversity? Has not the
Omniscient Creator unplanted those <lcsircs? And
has He not contrivcd and provided a supply for ali





our moJerate wants and enquiries ? And if it be

essential to man's welfare to be forewarned of "the
time and the judgment," that the uise man shall know
it, that he may not be overtaken with difficulties, so
as to wrong bis neighbour and bis friend by cheating
him of bis honest claim-as many religious cants,
who are willing to follow blmd and deceptive chance,
which they blasphemingly call "providence," have
done within the circle of our acquaintance. These
have hea\'cd at a gnat and swallowed .. carne).
When they embark with their ncighbour's property,
let them ask what the "signs of heaven" say will be
the result, and then let prudence and common moral
honesty and moJesty be the reins of thcir procedure,
and then they will reflect honour on the cause of GoJ,
instead of stagma and reproach.
Very probably the medi um throu({h which the influential sympathy operates, and whach causes distant
portions of m11tter to o~rate on each other, may be
a very fine subtile fluad, emanating through infinite
space, wholly imperceptible, cxcepting by its efforts,
and thus apparently unaccoHntable, were it not attri
butable to celestial agency ; but which, to a believer
in Astrol~, appears nothing more than the orJinary
and unemn; laws of nature. 1'hus, this specics of
prognosticat&on, notwithstanding the silly, common
place gibes of imitative witlings, . "ld the foolish
ridicule of selfconceited egotists,. tnc tyranny of
priestcraft, the ignorance of godly bigots, is really
founded on the sarne immutable laws to which the
universe at large is subject.
As to the absurd and foolish idca that it is super
atitious, unlawful, or sinful to study Astrology, a
moment of unprejudiced and wise reflection will con,
vince to the contrary. Prediction is deduced in a
demonstrahle way, according to a cert:u chain of
causes, which, for ages past, have been found uni
formly to produce a correspondent train of eff'ects.
Where, then, consists its sinfulness, or its supersti
D,g, ,zed



tion, since the whole system is founded on the result

of actual obscrvation? H Astrology, which foretells
foture events by the course of the stars, is either
sinful or unlawtul, 50 were the labours of the ceie
hrated Halley, Kcplar, Herschel, and others, who
nightly pore<l over the starry heavens, gauging the
firmament in search of discoveries; and alike un
la wful are the labours of the present Astronomers
Royal ; 50 is the prediction of the return of a comet.
Equally sinful is the calculation and anticipatecl
eclipse of the luminaries. The Horary Figure is
nothing more nor less than a chart or representation
of the heavens on a flat piece of paper, and planets
placed therein, and there is nothing sinful in this,
any more than in the innocent young lady reprc
senting the face of the heavens at any hour on the
celestial globe; and by predicting from the sai<l
configurationsof thc heavenly bodies, the Artist does
but verify and fulfil that passage of the sacred Scrip
tures, which positively declares that the stars and
planets were crcated and placed in the firmament
for "sig,u " of that which should afterwards come to
The Almighty Creator gave the Babylonians notice
of the "signs " of their destruction : " For tlu sta,s o/

naries werc cclipscd in the zodiacal sign Virgo, which
rulcd Babylon, as noticed in the 38th page of this
work. And the fearful fall of Egypt was prognosti
cated by the sarne species of " lieauenly sig,,s," which
he knew the Egyptian Astronomers well understood;

rcligion, go about to condemn every look, word,
action, and opinion, that squares not with their
narrow, misconccived, and selfish views of thin,:rs.
Y011 must walk with them, or walk out of the world ;
for they are perfectly ,iglzt-you must say their s/1ibbo/e//1-you must subscribe to their articles--you
must observe thcir observances-you must kneel at
their altars, bow to their gods, and listen to their
councils, or you cannot be happy here, nor prepare
happiness hereafter. They have chalked out a line
of duty so narrow that neither themselves nor
others can walk in it with safcty. They, therefore,
pass th:ough lifc as if the ground on which they
trcad w;.s composed of nothing but bogs and quagmires, andas if the azurc aspcct of thc hec1vcns was
ahsolutely injurious to thcir sight. Could we follow
thcm into thc hid<len haunts of their own hearts we
shoul<l thcrc sce what sinuosities, what serpentinings,
what obliquities of eelings, views, and principies,
. what secret longings, what mixtures and contradictions, make up their characters ! Here we should
detect the <lemon of pride lording over the soul ;
there the little imp of envy and malignity creeping
round the heartstrings; there again the yellow eyed
fiend of jealousy inusing its poison into the liver,
blood, an<l heart's core of the wretched victim, while
ill nature an<l malignity riot in wantonness through
the whole system. Ali this can never escape thc
experimental Astro Philosopher, who will stand aloof
from having dcalings with them, and expose them
and their ba1-e im:inuations to the understanding of
those thcy dcsigningly, though "as angels o( light"
in appearance, wish to victimize.
Far be it from the author to suppose that there
are no truly virtuous objectors to our science. I
know therc are many ; some who think that, were it
fully established in society, it might be dangerous:
and others imagine that they disbelieve it altogether.
But, as Si, G. MtUe,ui, observes, "o( ~9)\ y~




say that they do not believe in the possibility o( foretelling future events, 1 have known ew on whom
it had not a very scnsible effect " Those who rcject
the science on account of its supposed dangcrous
tendency, do not sufficiently reflcct that no science,
having 1ts basis in truth, can really he dangerous.
But what if bad men should apply it to bad pur
poses, is it more than is clone with almost every other
art or science? Have not the arts o engraving, and
of good penmanship, been productive of forgery?
Have not the fine arts been used for the pnrpose of
ldolatry, and o obscenity? Has not religion its
bvprocrites, who use it as a cloak for their licentiousnss? Have not some men prayed themselves into
bigots, and others philosophized themselves into
Those who rcject Astrology as an idle drcam and
an 1llusion bave never seriously applicd thcir minds
to the study of it. Thcy havc entcrtaincd wrong
impressions respecting its pretensions; and havc
imagined that the science professes to teach more
than it really does. They have never been ahle to
erect a figure of the heavens at any required moment
o( time. They knew not the data on which thc predictions are based. Thcy have never watched the
bi.neful influences of Saturo affiicting the eastcrn
borizon; nor the benignant operations of Jupiter
upon others; nor the had aspects of their own Mercury with Uranus ar.d thc Moon. They havc their
Mars vitiated by aEpect of Uranus, which have declared in them a certain portion of querulousness,
mixed with no small share of ignorance, arrogance,
and envy, eternally prompting them to find fault
with what they do not understanJ. These persons,
unwilling to be thought ignorant of any thing, J>re
tend to be familiarly conversant with every thmg ;
and they imagine they manifest their superlative
shrewdness and incomparable dexterity by a sort of
wholesale dealing in notes of interrogation. fhink




ing, as they do, that they individually are the etn

porium of knowledge, they grant nothing to their
opponcnt; they conce<le no point ; they admit no
position, not cvcn for the sake of argument; they
are mighty dexterous at a syllogism in their own
avour; hut uniformly reject the minor, the major,
and the ergo, from every other quarter. They are,
gencrally, smatterers in some art, or dabblers in some
science; and having acquired a string of techni
calitics, never fail to pour out a most abundant portion of them into the ears of those who may not
happen to make any particular science their stu<iy.
liut ask these persons a qucstion, even in their own
favourite study, and for the most part the answer
will be an expression of astonishment at your ignorance ; but you must not look for a definite answer :
most assurcdly you will he disappointed if you calculatc upon deriving aoy information of real utility
from them. Are thcse the individuais to <lecide upon
a qucstion of i.o momcntous, so profoundly philosoplucal, so invaluablc to cach man, to the millions of
:;ociety, nay, to thc whole world, as Astrology? a
science based upon the fahric of creation ; which has
cmployed th<: mastcr mind of a Ptolemy, a Thales,
a Plato, a Virgil, a Keplar, a Newton, a Davy, and
thousands more, whose names are immortalized by
mcn of talent. Let those \\ho wish to explode the
science first cast their own horoscopes, or prove,
from ;;omc authenticated nativity, that there is no
truth in Astrology ; then, and not till then, will we
listen to their pompous assertions against the science;
but by the lime they are capable o performing the
above requirement they will be ully convinced o(
its truth, and bccome converts to the doctrines which
thcy formally condemned.
Neither should the occasional ailures o some o(
its professors afford any argument against the uiRtu.
\Vc are aware that to juggling nonsense and knavery
of some o its proessors this science owes much of




the odium under which it lahours. But mt:n do not

condemn the Scriplures merely because hcresies,
and heretical schisms, have anscn lhercfrom ; nor
do they dcny the art of the physician through
his own inefficiency : nor explode the whole sciei,ce
of chemistry, mercly bccause the chemist fails in
some of his analytical expcrimcnts. \Vhy, then,
should Astrology ak,ne, which, of ali other sciences,
claims lhe most serious and undivided attcntion, bc,
come the butt of incredulity through the sins of
some of its proessors? Let the studcnt make bis
opponents answer that question bcforc hc proceeds
to argue: with them. They say it is supcrstitious.
Ask the caviller-what is s11perslilio11 ? And r.ot one
in a thousand can ~ive you thc import of the word
.. superstition." Thesc are lcarned cncmies, forsooth ! They are butts for ridicnle and laughter.
The science has been uscd by des1gning pcrsons as
a kind o( /orl11,u-llllinl( system ; hcncc, olcl women of
no education take it up, and some who havc prctended to understand it have afTccted great ,.,isdom
and sagacity, great foresight and knowlcdgc. Hcnce
they have hcen regarded as a species of nccro
mancers, objects of foar and wondcr to the ignorant,
of disdain and contempt to thc wise and discerning.
Astrology has nothing in common with magic, or
any like crafty art. Jt dcals not in mystery; for
mystery and truth are, for the most part, at enmity
Wlth each othcr.
The true and educateJ Astrr.loger scorns ali idea
o( secrecy in his science ; those who entcrtain a con
trary feeJing know nothing aho1Jt it, whilst he pro
ceeds by certain rules, which ali men may learn if
they will take the pains; though he makcs no pretensions of infallibility, or perfection, entirely in bis
Astronomical judgment, and does not hold himself
accountable for the i1l use which evil-disposed per
IODS may make of these rules. His skill in Astral
science, like real skill in every other branch of use




fui knowlcdge, has a direct tendency to promote a

spirit of modcration and reserve ; of caution and
prudence, incompatiblc with the arrogance and pre
sumption of eithcr a mcrc pretender or an opponent.
The Author looks forward to no very distant day
when stellar doctrines shall have acquired that
stability of charactcr and utility as to again, as in
<lays of genuine philosophy, entitle it to universal
rcception, an<l whcn its advantagcs shall be looked
to as the main auxiliarics of sound morais, rational
philosophy, and true religion.
ln the mean time its prescnt indcfatigable dis
ciples, a<lvocates, and admirers will hc content to
havc thc sneers, the contempt, the ili nature, and the
ignorance of its a<lversarics; and guarding against
prccipitation on onc hand and inattention and in
differencc on the othcr, will not fail to make those
observations on nl<:n and manners; on cause and
efTect ; on signs and correspondencies, as shall con
firm them in the principies, and endear them to the
practice of Astro Philosophical investigations.

to the oox sttllaru111. The only argument capahle of

3. You will sometimes meet with antagonists who

know that Jearning is not always united with discemment, nor real knowltdge, any more than the
words of a talking bard are united with ideas.
Leaming is a mechanical acquirement, and may be
pouessed by a very silly person, and of this we have
numberless instances.

6. Tlu Co,,ju11elio11 o/ d
The d is when two planets have the """' geocentric longitude. This aspect is ound to be good
with good planets, but evil with evil planets. Its
eft'ects are strong in ali cases.
7. T lt, S1111islxtil1 S 30
The ,emisextile aspect is moderately fortunate and
slightly beneficial. Jt consists of 30 degrees, or one
ligo in the zodiac ; thus, suppose 2" in + of 'Y', and
t in 4 of ~ or
they would be S of each other.

The Trine aspect is 120 distant, or 4 signs between

12. Tlu SUfttisgu,m SSo 135

Tbe 8 is ,-hen two plane,~:,e,r i&8'q~ i1tant, or
jus& haU the space of the zodaac apart, whach pJacea


them in diametrical radiation. This is an evil and

unfortunate aspect.
These are the most notable and powerful con
figurations ; and though there are others of minor
importance, yet I refrain from mentioning them, as
they are of very little moment in Horary Astronomy.

1.i, lt is very seldom at the time a question is

proposed that ali the aspects which appear are each
perfcctly composed of tht-ir txact number of degrees.
ln such cases they are still in aspect as longas they
continue within the moicty, or equal /,ai/ part of their
,mited orbs. This is callcd a platic aspect, in contra,
distinction to a partile, or perfect aspect ; that is
whcn two planets or two significators are in the same
degree of their respectivc sigos, and it is necessary
to observe in these platic aspects whether the CO
opcration of the two plancts is going off or coming
on, as that will matcrially affect the matter under
RuLE.-Add the orbs of thc two planets together,
an<l takc one half of the sum ; if the planets are
heyon<l that distance they are not then even in platic
EXA!\IPLE,-Suppose I;, in 15 of 'Y', and i in 10,
thcy are then in platic aspect ; for the orb of ? is 9,
and that of i 7'' added to 9 equal 16, the half of
which is 8; so they are w1thin orbs at 8 degrees
distant, and in like manner of thc other planets.
The number of degrees each planet extends an
inftuence round its ho<ly is: 'i' 5, W 7, ? 9, 2l, 9,
0 15, 3 7, i 7, ~ 7, and (! 15 degrees. . . t. ;..' ,,:
Thus Neptune, which is placed first, applies to no
planet except he be Retrograde; Wapplies only to 'i';
.2" applies only to ? , W, and :i'; and so of the rest
ao order, as may be seen (art1cle 3). The (!, who..Js
placed last, applies to ali the plancts, as she ,,md'vesiogle

applies to the <! except that _Planet be retrograde, and
then it is called mixed apphcation.

2o6. It is generally very difficult to judge o( time
with accuracy. The limitation o( time is taken
either by house and sign, or by aspect To ascertain
the number o( days, weeks, months, or years, consider
the <legrees and mi011tes belween the bo<ly or aspect
o( the significators, and accordini; to the number of
degrees which are between the1r aspect, even so
many days, weeks, months, or years will it be bef'ore
the matter inquired ater is accomplishedordestroyed.
Observe in what house and sign the applying significator alls. Succee<lent houses give weeks, months,
or years as the sign is movahle, common or fixe<l, and
cadent houses give months, in movable signs, years in
common, and unknown in fixed sibrns. Great south
latitude prolongs the time, great north latitude o(ten
cuts it shorter, if the significators have no latitude
the exact time is made simply hy the aspects,
Degrees and minutes o( latitude, if it be south, should,
it is said, he ad<led to the time, but i north, subtracted from it, as north latitude shortens the time of




an event, and south latitude lengthens it, but I bave

not much opinion o! this.
Transits show thc progress of the matter, and point
out the most probable time in which thc matter may
be terminated, and that is the time to judge o!.
The good or evil days are those on which the transits
are good or evil. Mixed application givcs, instcad
o( years, s;iy months; Cor months, wecks; and for
~ks, say days.

t'1e bouse where the significator ol the thi" is poted

which way the thing may be. I the house and sign
cohere this judgment is so much the more firm; i
they disagrce consider the position o the <I l\nd
with what she agrees most, and give judgment rom
her. I the C{ agrees neither with the sign nor house
in which the significator is posited, then consider the
(B in the same manner as beore you consider the <!,
and judge accordingly. The distance is discovered
rom thc proximity or distance o the significators to
ho<ly or aspect, considcred as they may happen to be
cither angular, succeedent, or cadent, respect being
had to their latitude, whether little or great, north or
south. Great latitude shows obscurity, and ~reat
difficulty in finding what is sought for; i the latitude
he north it shows difficulty only, not im~ssibility;
but i south, then all the labour o seekmg will be
vain, unless the significators be angular and near
the aspect.

some leagues. The significator cadent, and without
latitude, shows some miles ; i it hath north latitude,

rules are chiefly to be consider~d in things having

or degrees of distance, consider the number o
degrees and minutes between the body or aspect of
the significators, and according to the number o
degrees between d ,

present, or to come, so the matter supposcd cither
once was, now is, or may be hercater. Hcre the
first thing to be attcnded to is the pcrection or

judge that the thing sought atcr shall be brought to
pass without impc<liment; the sooner if the significators be swift in motion, and strong ; lmt if this

will be perfected, but not so soon ; if in cadent houses,

provided each planet has dignity in the degrees

wherein it is, and applying, otherwise not. Some
times it happens that a matter is effccted when the
significators apply by 8, but then there is mutual
rcception by house, and the (( separating rom the
significator o the thing demanded, and applying
presently to the lord o{ the ascendcnt. 1 have
seldom seen anything brought to perfcction by this
way o 8 but the querent had rather the thing had
been undone; for 1{ thc question was concerning
marriage the parties seldom agree, each party repin
ing, laying the biame on their covetous parents, as
having no mind to it themselves; and if the question
was about portion or money, the querent did recover
his money or portion pronused, but it cost him more
to procure it in suit of law than the elebt was worth ;
and 1 havc sccn it happcn in many other things,
213. Translation -Thin~s are hrought to per
fcction by translation of light. When the signifi
cators both of the quercnt and qucsited are separating
from , *, or A of each other, and some other
planet separates himsel from one o the significators,
of whom heis received eithcr by house or joy, anel
then this planct applies to the other significator hy
d or aspect hefore he mects with the or aspect of
any other planet, he thus translates the force,
influence, and virtue of the first significator to the
other, and then this intervening planet (or such a
man or wnm11n as it signifies) shall bring the matter
in hand to perfection.
214. ConsidcP of what house the planet intcrposing
or translatini,: thc nature anel light of the two plancts
is lord, and describe him or hcr; and say to the
qucrent that such a party shall do good in the
busincss o{, &c., viz., if lord of the 2nd a good purse
effects the matter ; if lord of the 3rd a kinsman or
neighbour, and so of all the rest of the houses.
215. Collection.-Matters are also brought to per
fection when the two principal significators do not







behold one another, hut both cast thcir aspccts to a

more weighty planet than thcmselves, and they both
receive him an some of their essential dignities, then
shall the planet who thus collects both their lights
bring the thing demanded to perfection, which signifies that a person somewhat interested in both parties,
described and signified by the planet, will perform
that which otherwise could not be performed ; as
many limes you see two fali at variance, and of themselves cannot think of any way of accommodation,
when suddenly a neighbour or friend accidentally
reconciles all differences, to the contcnt of both
parties; and this is called a collcction .

Things and persons are hindcrcd by frust
ration, prohibition, refranation, &e. When the
significators apply to d or other good aspcct, and
hefore the aspcct is completed another planet aspects
one o( the significators, then the thing 1s hindered or
frustrated. Consider the nature o( that planet, o{
what house heis lord, and then judge the quality of
the imped1tor ; if lord of the 3rd a relation or neighbour, if the 4th the querent's father, and if the ~th,
children. 1'hings are also hindered by refranat1on,

than to the lord of the house. If the significator, as
above, be joined to an infortune, or retrograde,

rcception intcrvene, which shows the perfection of
thc mattcr, though with much labour and solicit

The Astrologer, before he delivers judgment,

will consider whether the figure is radical and

capable of judgment. The question 'i not radical,

'Y', ij , or a ascend, then do not venture judgment
unless the querent be very young, and his corpor

not sae to give judgment, except the querent's age

correspond with the number of degrees ascending,
unless the figure be set when any event happened,
as a person went away at such a time prec1sely, to
learn the result; here you may jud,e, because it is
not a propounding question ; 3rd, 1t is not safe to
judge when the ([ is in the latter degrces of a sign,
especially in n, 11\, or ~ Ali matters go hardly
on (except the principal significators be very strong)
when the <! is void of coursc. You must always he
wary when, in any question, you find the cusp of thc
6th house is afflicted, or the lord of thc 7th retro
grade or impedited, and the mattcr at that time not
concerning the 7th housc, hut helonging to any othcr
house. It ii. an argument that the judgment of the
Astrologer will give no contentment to the querent,
for the 7th housc generally significs the artist. Whcn
the testimonies of fortuncs and infortunes are cqual

219. 1.-Many disputes havc arisen ahout thc
proper time for the figure of a horary qucstion to hc
erected, Some think the moment when the qucrcnt
ia firat scen hy the artist; othcrs whcn hc salutes
him, othera when he inquires of him, &e. But thc
proper time is the hour and the minute when the
quer~nt feels the most anxious about the matter.
2.-If a person apply to an Astrologer the figure
must be erected for the minute the querent proposcs
bis question.
3.- If a letter be sent to an artist thc time of the
letter being received is not to be taken notice of, but
tbe moment the artist reads the very question.
4.-In sickness the time nmst be taken wh~n the
peraon first spoke to the physician concerning the


disease, whether the querent is the afflicted party
or not.
5.- 1f a parent bring the water of a child, though
the child cannot speak, the Ist house represents the
chil<l, and not the 5th, and so of the rest.
6.-Jf it be not a question but a sudden event, take
thc moment of its commencemcnt, as the setting off
on a journcy, heginning a letter or any business, &e.,
or when you first discover the loss of any article. ln
ali thcse cases the first impression on your mind is
thc time and moment for the figure.

qucsited helon,;s, its lord, and thc planets therein ;
also consider the house signiying the end of the

located it shows good, but the contrary indicates evil.

1. The first column shows the Twelve Signs o

the Zodiac.
2. Lords of Houses.-In the second are the Planeti
and the signs opposite each, which denotes that thc
planct is Lord or Lady of that sign ; whcre i,
placcd, denote11 hiK housc to hc f't' ; i Lady o ~
and so ol thc rcst. Four of thc plancts,
11 ,
and <! havc cach onc house; thc other planeta havc
each two houses. A J>lanct in his own house i,
strong, and is a powcrful significator, unless he bc
retrogradr, combust, or afflictcd by any malevolcn1
planet or aspect.
3. Exaltation.-The third column shows in whict
&f.,'1\ each planet has its exaltation : thus, the 0 it
'Y' is exalted. lf a planet J,e in the sign wherein h
is exalted, )'.OU may consider him essentially strong
lf the signaficator be in bis exaltation, and no W.t)
impedited, but angular, it repreaents a person o:
haughty condition, and arrogant, usuming more te
bimself than is due.




4. Triplicity.-The fourth column tells you which

planet governs each triplicity ; for if a planet be in
any of thoEe signs which are allotted to him for his
triplicity, hc is also strong, but in a less dcgree. A
planct in his triplicity shows the querent tolerably
endowed with the goods and fortune of this world ;
one well descended, and the condition of his life at
the time of the question to be good, but not so
much 50 as the former dignities.
5. Joys, or very powerful.-The fifth column shows
you m which s1gn each planet is most powerful.
The cfficacy of these has been proved by repeated
e~perience, and they must be consiJered with atten
Thc forcgoing are the cssential <lignities of the
planets, and are good.
6. Dctriment.-In the sixth column, over against
'Y' is found 2, being in 'Y', is an opposite sigo to her
own house, and 50 is said lo Le her detriment. This
is an evil position.
Every planet has its detriment opposite to its own
house, an<l its fall opposite to its exaltation.
7. Fall.-In thc i;cvcnth column, in juxtaposition
is oun<l 2l ovcr his hca<l, fali : that is, 2l when in
'rj, is opposite to nis cxaltation, and so is unfortu,
natc, &e. When thc lor<l of any question is in bis
dctrimcnt or fali, hc is then vcry evil, and no good
,::cncrally comes of the mattcr in hand.
223. The Dragon's Head Q, is of the conjoint
nature of ll and 2, but the Dragon's Tail ~ is
feminine, and of a malignant tendency. As before
stated, they are two imaginary points, diametrically
oppositc to each other, where the Moon crosses the
Ecliptic, or path of the Sun. These points are
moveable at the rate of three minutes and eleven
a;cconds daily, or nineteen degrees and twenty




minutes in year ; moving round the Ecliptic in

eighteen. yt.ars and two hundred and twenty-five
days. The Moon, therefore, at every lunation,
crosses at a diff'erent place, and an eclipse never
occurs but when she is m or very near these points ;
an eclipse of the Sun when the Moon is in her
Ascendang Nodt>, and one of the Moon when she
ia in her Descending Node.
22+ This also is an imaginary point in the Zodiac,
and as rejected, together with the Dragon's Head
and Tail, by some modern professors o the Astral
Science. lt may demand less o our attention than
the two Nodes, but in questions concerning money,
lotteries, bills, &e., it is particularly useul, especially
when the testimonies for and against are equal, then
the Part of Fortune can alone decide.
The reason why such a point has any symbol
appears to be that the 0, the <!, and the eastern
pomt o( the horizon, being the prime conduits
through which the streams of life flow, this seat o(
the Part o( Fortune is the harmony of all three,
concentrating and uniting their natures in one point,
which, when it is found to fali among fortunate stars,
ia indacative o good, and if it be found in the first,
fifth, or eleventh house of the figure, then it promises
aucceas in health, weaJth, honour, offspring, &e.

226. Rt1LB I . - Find in Simmonite's Ephemeris,

the amount of longitude the planet moves rom the
preceding to the succeeding noon.
Rule 2.-Thcn look in Simmonite's Astro-Tables,
in Diurna! Logarithms, ~or thc log. answering to
that daily motion, and add the log. o the time
given, and the sum gives the log. of longitude o
that time.
Rute 3.-Add the resuh to that planet's longitude,
at the preceding noon; but if the planet bc retrograde,
then subtract the result rom the planet's place at
the preceding noon.
The Studcnt may gencrally equate by inspection
ali the planeta' daily motion, except the Moon,
M.:rcury, and Venus, without calculations, suffici
ently near for Horary Profession.

the Sun. We now place the Moon's Nodes in the
figure ; these nodes move in a retrograde motion,
about 3' 11" per day, so they may easily he equated.
On the 25th of the Month, the Moon's node is 8 Q
47, and will have gane about seven minutes in 2

Rule.-Divide the amount of longitude made in
24 hours, 1md also the time since noon, by 12 ; then
multiply the quotacnts together, and the result is the
answer, in minutes of a degree, the last figure being
a decimal.
Example-The Sun madoe in 24 hours, 61 minutes;
dividcd by 12 1 gives 5 ; time since noon, 274 minutes,
divided by 12 1 gives 23 one-twelfth ; then 23 onetwelth multiplied by 5, gives I 16 or I I minutes and

merely from the position of planets therein.



Wherein, or affiicting the <C, or lord o the 7th,

disa_Ppointment in courtship, disorder in domestic
affaars, death of rclations, disordcr in wedlock, and
long beore the native marries; the wie or hus
band will be eccentric and difficult to please; ? ,
long beore hc marries, and ili ab'l'eement in marriage;
many enemies; if peregrine, as in ij, n, llJ, .o., I,

hut inortunated an ili m.irriage; the Dragon's
Head, ortunate marriage; the Dragon's Tail, the
reverse, and many Coes; the e, a wife or husband
well off. Many planets in the 7th, anxictf ahout
lovers, husband or wife, many enemies. lf an good
aspect with 2 or <C, or with the Jord o the 1st or
7th, the nativc will marry more than once. If the
lord o the 1st be stronger, or less affiicted than the
lord o the 7th, the querent will overcome bis
enemies ; but i the Jord of the 7th be strongest,
they will overpower him. Good aspects, reception,
&e., between the lords o the 1st and 7th, show
harmony between a man and bis wie.
243. The ruler hereo, herein, the querent has
debt1 he will never get in ; thi1 Jord in good aspect


with the lord c.,f the first, or to planets therein, the

here laid <lown may be depended upon, hut the lords
of the different houscs have no particular effcct, although Gadbury says a great <leal from pagc +S to 6+
on the aubject of posilw1,s in houscs. The lor<l of rst
in the 2nd, says Gadbury, Lilly, Raphael, White,
Salmon, and others, gives riches by the native's own
industry, but this is not consistent with Horary
Astronomy. For instance, the , la<ly of the rst
located in thc 2ncl, afflicted hy J , ~ or thc Sun,
would denote the qucrcnt to hc profligatc, who in
atead of realizing a fortunc by nis own industry would
work his own ruin by extravagance, with the assistance of bis dissolute connections an<l h;sown unsettlcd
dispoaition, which would prevent him from adhcring
to anything good long enough to be scrvicablc. lC
posited in the roth he would work his own downfall
1n the same mnnner, and if c1 were in 8 to the 0
and <I his end would be violent, an<l if eithcr Suu or
([ were in the 1oth or in evil aspect to its lord or to 21.
he would probably be transported. Thus the artist
will see the indispensable neccssity of adherence in
anawering questiona proposed according to art. But
....,,. -" the aspect of thP. planets ha ve a powerful
eft'ective aignification, for every planet is deemed a
lignificator of something, therefore, the aspects he
receivea muat be considered accordingly.

251. lf you wish to know what moles the person
enquired 1tbout has, the sarne rules apply as in 249,
only be careful to take the right ~ignificator as
directed in 216. If you enquire of a public enemy,
a lo\'er, or a thief1 consider thc 7th their ut; for the
7th rules these parties, the 12th their 6th, and there
they will have a mole, &e., also in thcse parts ruled
by the lords of the 7th and I 2th, as wcll as those in
which ? or is located. For a friend, take the
signs on the uth and -1,th, and whcre thcir rulers are1
for on those parts of the body they will have marks.
Remember, the uth rules friends, and the 4th is the
6th from the 1Jth (roo). For a master or your
mother the roth is the ascendant, and the sign
thereon shows on what part of the body a mole may
be expected, and the 3rd is their 6th which will show
another mole,

1'1., Where the Mariners abide.

I, The Mariners.
l-f, The En<l of thc ship.
:::, Thc Captain or Master.
Thc Oars in galleys, the Whecls in steamvessels.
Thc Ascendant and the Moon signify the vessel
an<l cargo.
The lord of the ascendant denotes those that sail
in her.
Whcn all these are fortunalc, they signify that the
Ship is safe, and in prosperity; on the contrary, if
thcy he impedited or afflicted, the vessel, and all -in
her are in imminent danger, if not lost.
A malignant, which has dignities in the 8th,
locate<l in the 1st: or the lord of the ascendant in
the 8th, in ili aspect with either the lor<l of the 4th,
6th, 8th or 12th ; or the Moon combust, under the
earth ; ali these are indications of loss to the ship.
lf thc ascendant an<l the Moon be unfortunatc, and
the lord of the 1st fortunate, the ship is lost, but the
men saved.
On the contrary, when the Moon is fortunate, and
the ruler of thc 1st unfortunatc, then the vessel will
do well, or is safe; hut that her crcw are in danger
of death by the ship,fever, or some epidemie or en
dcmic disease.
Thcse rulcs mcrcly apply whcn she is on her
voyage, an<l thc qucrcnt is anxiously serious to know
how the ship is or has frcd. l.lut to know the re

the 9th, 1oth, 1st, 4th or 7th, and that at the sarne
time aftlicting the Moon, or the ruler o( the first, well
located, or the ruler of the 1st and 9th well aituated,
then the voyage will be good and safe.

But iC W, '? , or tt be in the above places, or

in suc:eeaent houses, the ship will meet witn some
misortune in that part o( the ship, or to those
persons significd by the sign whcrc the malefic is
Jocated; for which, see 268.
Satum affiicting the 1st and the C:, d:motes sickness, shipwreck, enemics, or pirates ; shows fire,
fever and capture, i no good aspects of the fortunes
intcrvene, the tt much the same as . I( the ruler

strong, the crew will escape; i( thc lorcls o( thc angles
be free from affliction, and the rulcr o( thc 1st, most
o( the cargo and crew will be saved.

greater will be the danger.
Again, if a o or 8 exist hetwcen the ruler o( the
zst and the disposer o( the <!, without exccption,
there will then arisc discord and contention among
the seamen, or there will be so much dispute betwcen
the captain and bis crew as oten to cause an opcn
mutiny. ln this case, thc strongcst significator will
overcome, that is, if the ruler o( thc xst is better
digmfied than the disposer o( the <! tht: men will
overcome; but if the disposer o( the <! is stronger
than the lord o( the xst, thcn the captain will prevail,
and the mutineers be put down.

270. The ruler o( the 9th, or a planet therein swit,
or in a moveable sign and oriental, denotes the voyage
to be short and quick ; but if accidental, long and
tedioua; if in common sigos, a reasonable time, and



the ship may land at a diffcrent port from the one

originally inten<led. The rulcr of the 9th and the ,
and the ruler of lhe 1st in fixed signs, denote a long
voyage; ij, nt or 1'$', on the ascendant, porlcnds the
shap to be a dull sailor.

is, whcn the query is made of a pcrson absent. The
significator in thc 1oth, success on the joumey; if in

4th, he will come home.
Whatever planct is significator, denotes the pcrson

The rules are as follow :.The ({ or lor<l of the xst or 8th in a moveablc sign
denotes mutability, and that after a short time tbe

as to whcther the testator will reco\er from his in

figure the Moon, the ascendant, and its lor<l, to bo

ln judging this question, we cannot too greatly
impress on thc studcnt's mind the absolute nccessity
of directing his attcntion to the proper house.
If th,. '}tJerent expects a Jegacy from his own
mothcr, then the 1oth house of the figure signifies
her, and conscquently the 11 th, her suhstance, prop,
erty, &e. If it be the querent's wife's m,,tht:r, then
thc stuJcnt must consider the 4th house of the figure,
which, bcing the toth from the 7th (his wife's house),
constitutes the ascendant of his wife's mother, and
so forth.

13. There are certain times in the day when it is
most fortunate for an infant to be born, the cause of
which is the particular position of the Sun. During
the winter season from 11 to 12 o'clock in the morn
ing, during the spring and autumn from 10.30 to 12
o'clock, in the summer from 10. to 12 o'clock; the
Sun is thcn in the 1oth house, and will elevate the
native, procure active honourable employment,
generally under some public body. Females born
near these times generally marry men above their
own station ir, life.
14. Here is a fact-easily verificd even if you are
not an astrological student-females bom between
sunrisc and noon, or sunset and midnight, usually
marry earlv in life, or otherwise marry men younger
than thcnselvcs; while those born between noon
and sunsct, or midnight and sunrise, generally marry
late in lie, or to persons many years their senior.
Of c.ourse those bom nearest to noonday, but not
past it, are the most fortunate, for the solar
infiuences is then most powerful. Note, t~ij1~dg

21. The 7tb and 1oth houses are extremely powerful. Powerful for good if the henefics are there, but
if the malefics be there calamities are threatencd. If

Elections are understood by astrologers as certa1n
ol>servations o( days and hours, which times, by the
motion o( the stars and planets, are either known to
be fortunate or unfortunate, as they agree or disagree
with the nativities of persons who desire to have
success in the business they are about to undertake,

By these short Rules the Student in Astrology may
give a correct judgment of the events of every
undertaking in life.
Never begin any undertaking when the Moon is
going to be joined to any retrograde planet ; it will
soon be destroyed, and if there be other evil configu
rations at the same time it will put manr other im
pediments in the way, and end in great m1schief.
It is wcll not to lend or pawn anything when
Jupiter is under the sunbeams, for 1 he should
be at the time, and not in good aspect of other
