If you would know whether a woman be with Child, or whether she will have any children, or not, look if the Lord of the Ascendent be in the seventh. or the Lord of the fifth in the first, or the Lord of the first in the fifth, or if the Lord of the fifth be in the seventh , or if the Lord of the seventh be in the fifth, or the Moon with them ; or if good Planets be in the first, or the fifth, or with the Lord of the fifth, she is with child, or may have children; but if you finde none of them , but evil Planets in the fame places, she neither is with childe, neither will she have any children : and if there be both good and evil Planets in the said places , then happily the may have children, but they will not live ; but if Cancer , Scorpio, Pisces shall be in the first or fifth House , she may have children ; but if Leo and Virgo be there, she is not with child, neither shall she ever have any children; or If the Lord of the fifth shall be in them Houses.
（PS：这里的“if Leo and Virgo be there”，be there是不是仅指5宫？还是1、5宫？）
And if, you would know,
within how many years she shall have children, look where you finde
the Lord of the fifth ; for in that year she shall have issue ; if
he be in the first, in the first year ; if in the second, in the
second year; and to you may number unco the twelfth House. And if
mean Signes be in the Ascendent, she that is with child hath twins
in her wombe, which will live, if a good Planet be in the first; and if an
evil Planer, they will die; and if there be one good and another
evil, one shall live, and another die ; and if a mean Signe shall
be ascending, and Mars in that Signe, the mother shall die, and not
the childe ; if Saturn, both the mother and child shall die , and
if the Dragons Tail be there, its possible they will both die ; but
the infant shall not escape , and if the Dragons Tail be so in the
first, and the tenth House fallen: the mother shall die; likewise
if Mars and the Moon, or Mars and Saturn be in the first, seventh
or tenth, the mother shall die.
Whether the party with child shall miscarry, or nor. Consider if a moveable Signe be ascending, because if it be so, she will miscarry.
If you would know whether a woman shall bring forth a man-child, or ai woman-child ; behold the Ascendent and his Lord, which if he be masculine, and in a masculine Signe, or in a masculine quarter of the Figure, it is a male-childe; but if the Lord of the Ascendent be feminine, and in a feminine Signe, or in a feminine quarter of the Circle, it will be a woman-child ; and so you shall consider also of the Moon. Consider also if more of the Planets be in masculine Slgnes, then it will be a male-child; and if many Planets be in feminine Signes, then it is a female-childe.
And if you would know
whether the child be legitimate or adulterate; see if Saturn, Mars or the Dragons
Tail be in the fifth, or with the Lord of the fifth ; because if it
be so, it is adulterate , but if a good Planet shall be there, it
is legitimate : and if the Lord of the first, be in the fifth, or
with his Lord, it is legitimate ; and so likewise if the Lord of
the fifth be found in the first, or with the Lord of the
If you desire to know whether rumours be true or false, see if you finde Saturn, Mars or the Dragons Tail, in the Ascendent ; because if they be so, then the rumours are false; but if you finde the Sun, Jupiter or the Dragons Head there, then they are true ; and if there be masculine Planets in masculine Signes, & feminine Planets in feminine Signes, then they are true ; and if both good and evil Planets be there, then they are partly true and partly false; and if there be a good Signe with the Planet, it testifies the truth ; and if the Planet fall with an evil Signe, then it is faise ; likewife if Mercury be in the first , the news is false : but if the Moon be in the first in a feminine Signe, or joyned with the Lord of the Ascendent in a feminine Signe, then the rumours are true ; also if good Planets be in the first, fifth or ninth, and feminine Signes, they are true; but if otherwise, they are not.
If you would know whether any one that is absent will return, and when; see the Lord of the Ascendent and the first , which if you finde them together , for certain he will come, and is now beginning his Journey. Likewise if the Lord of the fifth be in the first, or with the Lord of the first, and if he be in his fall, the messenger is sick in his way; but if the Lord of the fifth be exalted, then he cometh joyfully. And if he be in a cadent Signe, he shall be grievously afflicted with sickness, or shall die.
If you would know if he bringeth that with him for which he went, or nor, behold the Lord of the seventh ; which if he be good, he bringeth that which he sought for; and if he be in his fall, or an evil Planet be there, be bringeth nothing with him.
Questions of the sixth House.
Whether the sick shall recover his health, or die. If the Question be concerning his sickness, see if Saturn, or Mars, or the Dragons tail be in the first, and whether his Lord he joyued with an evil Planet, then he shall die soon. And if the Lord of the first be good, and evil Planets be in the first with his Lord, or likewise in the first or the eighth, for certain he will die : But if the Lord of the first be in the eighth, or with the Lord of the eighth ; or the Lord of the eighth in the first, or with the Lord of the first, there is doubt of his death. And if evil Planets do possess the Angles, evil and destruction is threatned to the sick. But if good Planets shall be in the first, sixth and eighth, and likewise in the Angles, and the Lord of the first be from the eighth & his Lord, then the sick person shall live and recover his health.
If you desire to know whether he will be cured by medicines, give the first House to the Physitian, the tenth to the sick, the seventh to his diseases, and the fourth to the medicines. If evill Planets be in the first, the Physitian shall profit him nothing ; but they testifie that this will be worse for the diseased : but the Fortunes do signifie, that he shall be profitable to him. And if evil Planets do occupy the tenth House, the sick person is the cause ; for they testifie, that he himself is the cause of his own disease : but the Fortunes being there, signifie the contrary. But if evil Planets be in the tenth House, they change the condition of the sick out of one disease into another ; but the Fortunes being there, do deliver him without the help of Physitians or medicines. Also evil Planets being in the fourth, do testifie, that the medicines do augment his grief; & the Fortunes being there, do mitigate and heal him.
If thou wouldst know if thou shalt go unto the person and heal him ; consider the place then : for if he shall be with Saturn, Mars, or the Dragons Tail, or with the Sun, go not unto him ; but if Jupiter, Venus or the Dragons Head be in the first or in the seventh, go, for it will be good ; and if there be the Moon with a good Planet, go, and give him physick ; but if she shall be with an evil Planet, and especially in the seventh House, then thou shalt not go; because thou shalt profit him nothing : and if there be good Planets there, go and look diligently to him, where or in what members he suffers ; because Aries hath the head, Taurus the neck,Cancer the breast and lungs, Leo the heart and stomack, Virgo the belly and intestines, Libra the reins and loyns, Scorpio the secret members, Sagitary the thighs, Capricorn the knees, Aquary the legs, and Pisces the feet.
