BOOK II

THE READING OF A HOROSCOPE

CHAPTER I

THE BODILY FORM, DEFECTS AND ACCIDENTS

The rising sign, the ruler of the ascendant and that of the sign
intercepted in the first house (if any), and the planets closely aspecting
the ascendant, considered with the signs they are in, will determine
much concerning the bodily form to which the native will arrive at
maturity. (See Book I, chap. Ii, and Appendix.)
Primarily, the ruling sign, or that which holds the eastern horizon,
is the basis of the physical temperament, as set forth in the chapter
on the “Signatures of the Zodiac.” The modifying factors are the
lord or ruler of the rising sign, and the planets in close aspect to the
ascending degree, considered according to the signs they severally
occupy. The peculiarities conferred by these signs will be found
more or less reproduced in the body of the native.
Pluto in the ascendant, as indicated in the Appendix to Book i,
affects the size of the body according to the sign which is rising. Thus
Cancer, Virgo and Capricorn will shorten the height but Gemini,
Sagittarius and Pisces, will increase the height. Taurus, Leo, Scorpio
and Aquarius increase the width giving thickset bodies.
Uranus in the ascendant, or in close aspect thereto, gives length of
limb and a slender body.
Mars gives a larger form than that indicated by the rising sign,
if it be close to the horizon; and generally it contributes a ruddiness
to the complexion, due to the presence of much iron in the system.
If in exact conjunction or any aspect to the ascending degree, it
operates to produce red hair and grey eyes, the ruddy colour and
steel-grey being peculiar to the god of war. When rising it frequently
gives a mole, a mark or scar in the face.
Any of the earthy signs ascending, and two or three planets in the
ascendant, makes a dwarf, or one much under the usual stature, more
especially if Saturn be one of such planets.
Jupiter increases the vitality and gives bulk to the figure.

78

Saturn makes the complexion paler or darker. It was rising in
Sagittarius in the horoscope of President Abraham Lincoln. His
thin, pale, and somewhat melancholic face will no doubt be familiar
to many of our readers from photographs and pictures of him.
(See Book ii, chap. xv, “Rank”.)
Venus rising confers greater elegance on face and figure. When
closely aspecting the ascendant or its ruler, it gives some claim to
good looks.
Neptune causes the face to become prematurely wrinkled, owing
to a sapping or wasting away of the vital fluids.
Venus and Jupiter in conjunction or opposition from any part of
the figure gives blue eyes. It has been frequently noticed that
when this position or aspect occurs, the native has very deep blue
and almost violet eyes.
Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, and Aquarius produce tall persons.
Aries, Libra, Virgo, and Scorpio give a medium stature.
Taurus, Capricorn, Cancer, and Pisces produce small persons.
But these observations are, of course, only general; they are
subject to modifying influences.
The planets have each two complexions, the Sun and Moon only
one each. They are as follows:-
Fair -- Dark

The Sun rules the first half of the male signs, and the second half
of female signs; while the Moon takes the remaining halves of these
signs. The Sun renders the complexion fairer, the Moon makes it
darker, when ruling the half sign rising at birth.

PHYSICAL PECULIARITIES

The Eyes. – The Moon being with the Pleiades, in 29 , or in
the Asselli, 6 , or with Antares in 8 , or the sun in these places,
afflicted by Mars from an angle, the person born may become blind.
The same result follows from the Moon in opposition to the Sun,
or the Moon in conjunction with the Sun, in any of these nebulous
parts of the Zodiac.

79

When either the Sun or Moon is in or near 29 , 6 , or 8 ,
and afflicted by any planet, defective eyesight is the result, the cause
differing according to the afflicting planet.
The Sun in Aquarius, afflicted by Saturn, especially by the opposi-
tion or conjunction, stone-blindness frequently results. The sign
Aquarius corresponds to the etheric vibrations, and therefore has
affinity with the sense of sight.
The Sun and Moon being in opposition from Aries and Libra
gives weak sight, and sometimes sore eyes. The same if the Sun
or Moon be in Aries and afflicted by Mars or Saturn.
Pluto rising, squared by the Sun and Moon will also cause weak
sight and accentuate the liability to blindness more especially if
the signs Taurus, Leo or Aquarius are involved.
If a malefic planet occupy any of the nebulous parts of the Zodiac
already referred to, and afflict the Sun or Moon by aspect, then
danger of blindness will arise from an accident, more particularly
if the malefic be elevated above the luminary.
In this matter it is better to have the Moon afflicted than the
Sun, for it gives greater hope of relief.
The Ears. – Mercury ruling the twelfth house, and afflicted by
the malefics, Uranus, Saturn, Or Mars, or being in conjunction with
the Sun, deafness ensues. The same happens when Mercury is in the
twelfth house, and so afflicted by the malefics or in conjunction with
the Sun. Mercury, ruling the intellect, is thus held in bondage, as
denoted by the signification of the twelfth house.
The third sign of the Zodiac ( ), which is ruled by Mercury,
corresponds to the atmospheric vibrations, and therefore has
affinity with the sense of hearing.
The Tongue and Organs of Speech. – If Mercury, being ruler of
the sixth house, is afflicted by Mars or Saturn, and posited in either
of the watery signs – Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces – the native will
have a perceptible stammer, lisp, or other impediment.
Mercury anywhere in the figure in the watery signs, afflicted by
Saturn, causes a stammer. If Mars add his influence by aspect,
then the native will talk very fast, lisp, or pronounce his words badly.
When Mercury holds any of the first six degrees of Scorpio, and is
in opposition to the Moon, the native will have a defect in his speech.
Saturn ascending in any of the bestial signs – Aries, Taurus,
Leo, or Capricorn – or in any of the “mute” signs – Cancer,
Scorpio, or Pisces – causes an impediment of speech.

80

Mercury in the sixth house, in conjunction with the Sun or
afflicted by Saturn or Mars, causes a defect in the speech.
The second house (and the corresponding sign, Taurus) governs
the vocal organs; and if a “sign of voice,” i.e., either Gemini,
Libra, or Aquarius (the airy sign), be found in the second house
of the horoscope of birth, more especially if Venus or Mercury be
therein and free from affliction, then eloquence or some vocal gift
may be predicted.
The Hair. – Mars exactly rising produces red hair. The greater
the amount of iron, the more ruddy is the hair. Sulphur darkens
the hair, and therefore Saturn rising produces black hair. The
relative strength of Saturn and Mars in the horoscope, and their
intimacy with the ascending degree, will determine whether the hair
is naturally light or dark at maturity, consideration being always
made of the characteristic of the rising sign.
Mars afflicting Venus, and elevated above Venus in the figure,
causes the hair to fall off soon. Mars in Aquarius, Gemini, or
Sagittarius, afflicting Venus, the same effect is produced.
Jupiter, being ruler of the ascendant, and occidental, i.e., between
the first and fourth, or the seventh and tenth cusps, produces
premature baldness. The same if Saturn be ruler of the ascendant,
and occidental.
The Limbs. – The Sun or Moon afflicted in the signs Capricorn,
Aquarius, or Pisces often produce lameness, or, if any of these
signs occupy the eastern horizon, and the rising degree be afflicted
by the presence or evil aspect of the malefics, a similar defect is
produced; and always that part of the body is afflicted wherein the
Sun or Moon is found to be situated at birth, if in evil aspect or
conjunction with the malefic planets.
Pluto rising in Gemini or Sagittarius afflicted by the Sun or Moon,
together with Saturn brings a liability to partial or complete paralysis
of either or both upper and lower limbs according to the severity of the
affliction.
Thus far we see how certain defects in the body are brought
about. Besides this, it is necessary to observe whether the afflicting
planets are angular or out of their dignities, for then they increase
the evils denoted. If however, Jupiter or Venus assist the afflicted
planet by their benefic aspects, conjunction, or parallel, then the
evils will be ameliorated, and assistance will proceed from the
quarter indicated by the position of the benefice planet.

But if in evil aspect. or second house. The Sun is organic. the Sun indicates chronic and lasting affections of the body. attention must be paid to those planets which afflict the Sun and Moon. observe. the native suffers much ill health. first of all. The affliction from a benefic planet can only be by evil aspect. Again. well aspected by Jupiter and Venus. and such affections as proceed from external causes.

The supreme function of maternity.

The following familiar arrangement of the signs will show which are in sympathetic rapport with one another. or arbor vitæ. that the signs of the Zodiac have a direct influence upon the human organism from head to foot. and the diamagnetic currents instituted thereby between points at right angles thereto. and as each of these signs has a direct influence upon a certain zone of the human body. together with the gustatory process and the salivary glands. Thus the polarity of Aries 1 is opposite to that of Libra 1 . which is the life-fluid sent forth . Similarly each degree of the Zodiac has its polarity. and the ears. These are in rapport with the heart and the dorsal region ruled by Leo. therefore. and the legs. viz. and its ruler. But apart from the direct influence exerted by a particular sign on a certain part of the human organism. does much to confirm good health and to establish the constitution of the native. or the first and eighth houses. it will be seen that each one of these zones exerts in its turn a sympathetic influence upon three others. the generative and excretory system ruled by Scorpio. 87 The sixth house. being free from the presence and evil aspects of the malefics. THE POLARITY OF THE SIGNS It has been found. by repeated and universal observation. as also the blood. or rather that part of them which is ruled by Aquarius. There is thus a magnetic relationship existing between all signs that are at right angles to one another. or in opposition. there is also a sympathetic influence. This is due to the polarity existing between opposite points of the zodiacal circle. those that are governed by the signs in square and opposition to its own. and. the line between these two points forming the magnetic axis of a sphere whose equator lies between Cancer 1 and Capricorn 1 . unless free from affliction. including the cerebellum. what parts of the body exert a mutual and reciprocal influence:- Thus Taurus governs the region of the neck. extending from any given region or zone in the body to certain other zones. etc. the sign thereon. The conjunction of the rulers of the first and sixth. forewarns of continued sickness and early death..

the Moon will form a square or opposition to that radical position whenever it is directed to Scorpio. Affects the suprarenal glands. difficulty in getting the blood to clot. disturbance of the point of balance in the middle ear. and will be of the nature indicated by the planet in that sign. Diseases of Pluto in signifies a liability to brain tumours. sportsman’s heart. dysentery. and ruled by Aquarius.

DISEASES OF THE PLANETS AND SIGNS The following tabulation of the various ailments produced by the planets in the several signs when afflicting the Sun or Moon in the horoscope. softening of the bone formation of the arm. loss of use in the lower limbs. blue blood in babies. blood-clotting in the head. and then it will be apparent to those versed in the theory of directions that. in signifies looseness of the bowels.” where it is quoted as from the ancient Arabian writers. uraemia.

Jupiter produces an open. gives a strong sense of justice. and pro- duces a reliable disposition. ardent passions. humane. and frank mind. makes the native a faithful friend or persistent enemy.

Venus afflicting the Moon makes the native untidy and slovenly. and Mars at the same time afflicts Mercury. generally of a neurotic character. In either case the evil is greater when the malefics are elevated above the Moon and Venus. Thus: Mars afflicting Jupiter causes boasting and extravagance. he gives an ungovernable temper.

In fixed signs success is slower. gaining thereby a certain renown. who throw aspersions upon his character and honour. Mars in the tenth.e. the ruler of the ascending sign and mid-heaven. give much hope of success. Most of the planets being the cardinal signs bring the native into prominence early in life. and often far above that of birth. this position of Mars makes the native a cons- tant victim of slander and ill repute. This position is exemplified in the horoscope of Napoleon Buonaparte. chiefly owing to his own impatience and pugnacious character. success in the latter part of life. the native will rise to a very good position in his sphere of life. the native rises to a good position.

Virgo to the sixth. and its association with fire. has much influence I this question. The planet which is in nearest conjunction with the Sun. owing to the influence of Virgo upon food and clothing. consideration must be made of the planet or planets in the tenth house. The signification of each planet will be found under the head of “Planetary Occupations” in Book i. then success is shown. carpenters. etc. and those also which aspect the meridian.

The Moon in Aries. Again. Jupiter being ruler of Pisces on the cusp of the seventh house – all excellent signs of marriage. In Aries. and Saturn in Libra eighteen degrees. LENGTH OF MARRIAGE The years of married life are measured by the distance of the significator of the wife or husband from the evil aspect of the malefic to which it is directed. and the planet Saturn were in Cancer eleven degrees. For if it be found afflicted by Uranus or Saturn. or Uranus. the number of children is increased. or Capricorn. Or. afflicted by Saturn. Leo. Scorpio. In Taurus. Thus. The Moon angular in the first.

Thus. in trine to Jupiter in Scorpio. Thus the significator to the conjunction or evil aspect of the malefics will show the period of married life. 113 The position of Mars in a female horoscope is of great impor- tance. if Jupiter were the significator in Aries one degree.

But if the malefics be found in the eleventh. the sign Cancer on the fifth and Saturn therein. will show the sex and condition of each child. then the friends are false. if Saturn. by the sex of the signs they occupy and their own natures. But if the benefics be retrograde in the eleventh. but some of the friends will be the cause of unconscious wrong to the native. or the luminaries afflicted therein. or afflicted therein.

CHAPTER X FRIENDS AND BENEFACTORS THE eleventh house. afflicting both Venus and Moon. the seventh shows the second. are the chief significators. The same if the luminaries or planets. The same if Saturn be with Venus in the seventh house. The fifth house in a male horoscope denotes the first child. or Mercury. afflicting the Sun. The majority of the planets in male signs shows a predominance of male progeny.

The dates shown by the longitude of the benefic planets will indicate the birthdays of persons who will benefit the native.e. Uranus. and Mercury. Chiefly. Neptune causes plots and deceptions. with many sincere friendships and happy associations. but few real friends. all kinds of extravagance and strife. or in good aspect to Jupiter or Venus. or these rulers in conjunction and good aspect to one another. the native makes many friends. if in common signs. When a fixed sign occupies the cusp of the eleventh house. or the ruler of the eleventh in the ascendant. while the longitude of the malefics . a quiet and successful life will be experienced. unless these planets be in good aspect to the Sun or Moon. regard the Sun. on occasions through extraordinary happenings such when disasters occur and if well aspected shows subsequent benefit. Mercury in good aspect to Jupiter or Venus gives many true friends. should they come into his or her life. 116 Saturn therein causes deceit. estrangement and quarrels. frauds and seductions. Moon. and is much benefited by them.. The same if Mercury be in good aspect to the luminaries. and the lord of the eleventh is found in a fixed sign. shows false friends. or indeed to any planets. and an encountering of abnormal difficulties through the treachery of those with whom friendly associations have been made. ambitious and time-serving. The ruler of the ascendant being in the twelfth house conduces to a reclusive life. If the malefics in the eleventh house be elevated above the luminary it afflicts – i. the associations of the native will be happy and fortunate. however. The ruler of the ascendant in the eleventh house. The Moon anywhere in the horoscope. Mars. If the luminaries and Mercury be found powerful. doubtful and inconstant. and free from the affliction of the malefics. If adversely aspected the presence of Pluto in the eleventh house shows a loss of genuine friends through disasters. for if these be well aspected or well placed and free from the affliction of the malefics. nearer to the meridian – then the friends will be the cause of the native’s ruin. the friends of the native will be faithful and reliable. Several planets in the same sign show many acquaintances. wars and such-like conditions. Pluto brings the forming of strange friendships. in cardinal signs. afflicted by Saturn.

Enemies will seek to harm through attacking the marriage or business partner or attempting to involve the partner in something of a scandalous moral. will be found to dominate the native’s fortunes to a large extent. Saturn shows deceitful opponents who will use fraudulent means to overcome the native.

Mercury indicates petty traducers and commercial rivals. and those that lie in ambush around him. sight. . Uranus in the seventh house shows public rivals. The opposite points will give the birthdays of persons who may prove disastrous to the native. and fourth houses must be taken into consideration. the planets which may afflict the Sun or Moon or ascendant must also be taken. social. eighth. or such whose interests will be opposed to his. CHAPTER XI ENEMIES THE rulers of the twelfth. Thus. The evil planets in the fourth house denote such as are opposed to the dignity. and credit of the native. and nefarious schemes designed to bring the native into trouble. honour. together with the planets therein. These houses are opposed to the first. those in the twelfth show enemies to his personal comfort. secret foes. if evil plants be in the seventh. they will oppose the ascen- dant. financial or business nature. Persons born on the dates corresponding to the mid-heaven and the ascendant. The benefics in these houses need not be considered as enemies. and tenth. and will denote many strifes and open contests from persons whose avowed interests are contrary to those of the native. as being indicative of probable sources of loss or trouble. the Sun therein denotes open and powerful rivals. In addition to these natural significators. Mars denotes such as may use violence and do him bodily harm. which denote the material welfare of the native. The malefics in these houses are very evil. with the houses they occupy. Pluto in the seventh house if badly aspected shows an encountering of enmity in public life.

may be taken as an enemy. however. and afflicting the Sun or Moon. denotes that the native will never fear his enemies. When. If afflicted by Mars it produces scandal and slander. Such conditions produce persistent and malicious enemies. who will injure the native continually and effectually. and well aspected. and in good aspect to the Sun or Moon. An enemy to be feared is denoted by a malefic in the seventh. or in no aspect to them. and much controversy. and if the lord of the horoscope be stronger that the ruler of the seventh house. The lord of the ascendant elevated. The lord of the tenth house. it be itself essentially dignified and elevated above the ruler of the seventh house. or eighth house. twelfth. afflicted by the lord of the sixth. the native will rise above his enemies and vanquish them entirely. Similarly. 118 Any planet afflicting the Sun or Moon. Jupiter is found in the ascendant or tenth house. plots and frauds. the reverse of this will happen. the native overcomes all his enemies. in the sign of its detriment or fall. Mercury badly aspected in any part of the figure shows enemies to abound. and the ruler of the tenth stronger than the lord of the fourth. the native will rely on the assistance of others to overcome his enemies. the native will of himself overcome his rivals and opponents. and judgment is made according to its nature and the house it occupies. therefore. well placed. then the enmity will produce only good. Pluto badly aspected by Mercury shows that enemies will try to lower the prestige and reputation by libelous and lying statements which so distort the true facts that litigation to prove the truth would be almost ruinous. but itself configurated with Jupiter or Venus. The malefics in any of the houses cited. if the malefic be in its own sign or exaltation. fourth. by Neptune. legal disputes. Otherwise. and the ruler of the ascendant strong and well aspected. If. from any part of the horoscope. and in good aspect to the Sun and Moon. denotes that there is little or no danger of serious enmity. and having a good aspect from the benefics. by Uranus it produces quarrels. the native will be in danger of hurt and reversal through his inferiors. . by Saturn it brings deceit and treachery. or a malefic in the sixth. If good aspects are the only source of strength to the lord of the horoscope.

and in opposition to Libra. There is a cause for it. He comes into the lives of these two people born under Libra and Sagittarius.e. and occurring in the horoscopes of opposite sexes. The longitude of the malefic planets in the horoscope should be noted. otherwise. with Libra rising at birth. denotes strong attachment and affection. . The result of close association between the two persons would be dangerous. but. unless marriage were in question. and disagreeable to the one born under Libra. The Sun in one horoscope in conjunction or parallel to the Moon in another. Persons of the same sex born under opposing signs rarely effect a lasting friendship. Two friends will take oppo- site views regarding the same person at first sight. The reason is obvious: Aries is in trine to Sagittarius. and the one under Libra a male. Mars in the one on the place of Venus in the other. He proves agreeable to the one born under Sagittarius. Suppose a person to be born under the sign Libra – i. unless some modifying influence also existed in the two horoscopes. Venus in one horoscopes in the place of Sun or Moon in another. Their ascendants are in sextile aspect. The square aspect between ascendant signs is bad for both sexes. CHAPTER XII SYMPATHY AND ANTIPATHY EVERY observer of human life will have been struck by the strange instinctive likes and dislikes which some people manifest towards others of their own or the opposite sex. it disposes to marriage. another is born with Sagittarius rising. on the contrary. Had the person born under Aries been a female. and the science of horoscopy affords a useful and satisfactory explanation. is a strong friendly tie. will be disposed to injure one another by diversity of interests. Another person is born under Aries. is a strong sex attraction. there would have been an attraction instead of a repulsion. or.. 119 The horoscopical causes of friendship and enmity are explained in the succeeding chapter. and the dates corresponding thereto will indicate the birthdays of the persons who will oppose the native’s fortunes. In horoscopes of opposite sexes. of the opposite sex. They are friends.

the planet Mars in one horoscope passing over the place of Venus in another. Satisfactory relations will not transpire between the persons whose planets are thus mutually placed. and he whose malefic it is will suffer injury according to the nature of the planet and its signification in the horoscope. When such or similar relations as the foregoing are found to exist between the horoscopes of individuals. 120 The strongest sign of friendship between two persons is when the Sun in one is in trine to the Moon in the other. Thus: if one person had the Sun in Pisces 20 . Sun. and Moon in Sagittarius 10 . or ascendant it is. will produce a temporary magnetic attraction. the person who would best agree with him would be one whose Sun was Aries 10 . These will pass away if the horoscope shows radical points of sympathy. Moon. Moon. and the Moon in similar relations with the Sun also. The two luminaries would then be in mutual trine aspect. and whose Moon was in Cancer 20 . The Moon progressing to the body of a malefic in another horoscope will cause trouble between the parties concerned. will produce a strong friendship. The Moon progressing to the opposition or square of the Sun in another horoscope produces breaches and quarrels. The Sun in one progressing to the place of the Moon in another. The person whose Sun. after birth. or Moon of another. The same may occur if Venus in one be passing over the place of Mars in the other. or ascendant in another. Temporary sympathy or antipathy is caused by the motion of planets in one nativity to the body or aspect of planets in another. denote that good will result to that person whose benefics are so placed. there is radical sympathy or antipathy between them. It is the most felicitous augury when happening between the horoscope of friends of opposite sex. will be the cause of good to the other. But this will not last unless there are radical indications of friendship between the parties concerned. or afflict the places of the Sun. or Scorpio 20 . Benefics in one nativity on the ascendant. . or Leo 10 . The opposite effect will be experienced when the malefics in one horoscope occupy the places. though under certain circumstances they may be liable to interruption. Thus. Such radical dispositions of the planets are never overcome.

The progressive position of Sun and Moon in that person’s horo- scope. and Mars have also much influence in regard to journeys. will further point to the results of the acquaintance. Sun. and the planets therein. will be the one who makes the overture or advance. viz. The result of this would depend wholly on the radical sympathy or antipathy of the two horoscopes. If the majority are in watery signs. Moon. and compare them with the places of the planets in the horoscope of that person. their rulers. The method of computing the progressive positions of the planets will explained in Book iii. Reason similarly in regard to other relationships. or who causes the evil or commences the quarrel. have chief influence in this question. and the rulers of the third and ninth houses. the truth of these observations will be at once apparent. The third house denotes railway and inland journeys. The Moon. progresses to the radical position of the other’s. Cancer.

Pluto in the third or ninth house shows travel of an unusual nature of brought about by an arising of unusual circumstances connected with relatives. Mars in any aspect to Sun or Moon tends to produce changes and journeys. Mercury. or Mars cadent in the third. or tenth. denotes many journeys. or Pisces. then the native will not travel much. ninth. If Neptune should be badly aspected there will be liability to sickness or danger through storms at sea. then judge that journeys and changes will take place. these unusual circumstances will be connected with the native’s relatives but if in the ninth house will be connected with or caused by the marriage partner or the marriage partner’s relatives.
