Questions of the seventh
For theft, look unto the Lord of the seventh : which if he be in the first, the theft shall be restored again ; but if the Lord of the Lord be in the seventh, it shall be a longtime sought after, and at length shall be found : but if the Moon be in the fifth, or with his Lord, it shall be found; if the Moon be in the fifth, or with the Lord of the first, or in the first, it may be found ; but if the Sun and the Moon be in the fifth, and if the Lord of the eighth be with the Lord of the first in the first, it shall be found ; but if the Lord of the second be in the eighth, it shall not be found. And if Saturn,or Mars, or the Dragons Tail be in the second, it shall not befound, nor be altogether lost. And if the Lord of the second be in the first, the thing that is lost: shall be found, but it shall not be known from whence it came. If the Lord of the first be in the second, it may be found after much labour. And if the Lord of the second be in his fall, it will never be found ;but if he be exalted, it shall be found very well : but the seventh House sheweth the thief.
若它位于第1宫，则将失物将被寻回；但若1宫守护星位于第7宫，则将寻找很久，但最终会找到；（注：“the Lord of the Lord be in the seventh”，是指7宫主在1，所以7宫主的宫主是指1宫主？）
But if you would know what it is that is stollen
, behold the Lord of the second ; which if he be Saturn, it is
lead, iron,a kettle, a triver, a garment, or some black
thine, or leather.If he be Jupiter, then it is some white thing, as
tin, silver, or mixt with white & yellow veins. The
Sun signifies gold and precious pearles. Mars
signifies things belonging to the fire.Venus signifies things
belonging to women, as gloves, rings,and fair ornaments. The Moon,
beasts, fuch as horses, mules,etc. perfumes and wars. Mercury
signifies money, books,writings, pictures, or garments of divers
If you would know how many thieves there were, see the Lord of the sixth ; which if he be in the second,or with the Lord of the second, there were many thieves ; and if they be in the third, the brethren or kinsmen of the Querent have committed the theft.
If you desire to know towards what Country the thief is fled, see in what Signe the Lord of the seventh is , for if he be in Aries, he is in the middle of the East part. If in Taurus in the South towards the East. If in Gemini, in the West towards the South. If in Cancer, full Norch. If in Leo, in the Est towards the North. If in Virgo, in the South towards the West. If in Libra, full West. If in Scorpio, in the North neer the West. If in Sagittary, in the East nigh the North. If in Capricorn, full South, if in Aquary, in the West towards the North. And if in Pisces, in the North towards the West.
If you would know whether the thief hath carried all the things stollen away with him, see the Lord of the seventh and the eighth, and if the Lord of the seventh be in an Angle, he had a desire to carry away the same with him , but could not. If the Lord of the eighth be in a mean House, or in a cadent House, and the Lord of the second in a strong House, he hath carryed the theft wholly with him. And if the Lord of the seventh and the eighth be both in cadent Houses, he neither carryed it away, nor hath it. See by the seventh who is his companion, and what is his gain.
If you would know the descent or nobility of a man or woman, look unto the Lord of the seventh; which if you finde him in Angles, and the Lord of the first in Succedents or cadents, the woman is more noble then the man. But if the Lord of the Ascendent be in an Angle,& the Lord of the seventh in a succedent or cadent House, the man is more noble then the woman. And after the fame manner thou maist judge of two companions, or of any other persons whaisocever. And if the Lord of the seventh be in the ninth House, he will take a wife out of a forreigne Country.
If you desire to know whether an intended marriage shall take effect, or not, look to the Ascendent and his Lord, and the Moon, for the Querent; and the seventh House, and his Lord, for the woman. And if the Lord of the Ascendent or the Moon be joyned to the Lord of the seventh, or be in the seventh, the marriage will be effected ; or if the Lord of the seventh be in che first, or wich the Lord of the first, it will easily be brought to pass, and the woman is more desirous thereof, then the man.
If you would know whether thy wife or friend hath any other lover or not, look if Mars be in the seventh, so that he be not in his own House, for then the hath not any other lover. And if Saturn be there, she loveth another; but he lieth not with her. And if the Dragons Tail be in the seventh, he lieth with her. And if Jupiter be there, she hardly containeth her self chaste. If Venus, she is merry, and much given to play and laughter, by reason whereof, she may be accounted a whore, and is not so. If Mercury be in the seventh, she had a lover, but now hath none. But if the Moon be in the seventh, she hath had no lover as yet, but will have one, and will be common. But if the Sun or the Dragons Head be there, she is chaste. And after the same manner may you judge in the ninth concerning friends or lovers.
If you would know which of them shall live longest, fee the Lord of the first and of the seventh, which of them shall be in the stronger and better place, or joyned to the strongest Planets ; and that person who is most free and remote from the Lord of the eighth and his participation, to whom the Lord of his House answereth, shall live longed.
If you desire to make a society or alliance, and would know whether it shall be brought to pass or not, or what shall happen thereupon, see if there be good Planets in the seventh and the first : and if so, the fellowship will be made, and good will come thereof; and you may judge it to continue so many years, months or dayes, as the Lord of the seventh hath signification of.
If you would know when such society shall be, look what Planet is in the sevench ; for if lie be good,it shall come to pass that same year: or wedlock, if the Queston be thereof.
If you would know whether they will well agree, see the first and his Lord, which is the signifier of the Querent ; and the sevench House and his Lord, which is the House of companions, wives and concubines, which if they be concordant amongst themselves, there will be peace and union between them, and they shall profit ; but if the Planets be In discord, there will be strife between them, and the society will not profit.
If you would know which of them shall gain most, see the first and his Lord , and the sevench and his Lord , and which of them standeth best ; or if they be evil, which of them falleth : and he that falleth shall lose, and he that is exalted shall gain. Or otherwise, and which is better, see the second and his Lord, and the eighth and his Lord ; and in which House is the better Planet, or his Lord that shall be found in the better place, or joyned with the better Planets he shall be the greater gainer. The second House and his Lord signifies the gain of the Querent : and the eighth House and his Lord signifies the gain of his fellow, or his part : and if they be both good, they shall both gain ; and if both evil, they shall both lose : and if one be good and the other evil, he whose significator is good, shall gain ; and he whose is evil, shall lose.
And if you would know if two fellows shall love one another,look if the Lords of the first and the seventh be friends and agreeing, then they will love one to another, but if they be enemies and disagree, then they will not.
If you desire to know who shall overcome in any cause, matter or controversie, behold the Lords of the first and the seventh, which if they be in Angles, neither of them shall overcome ; and see which of them is joyned with an evil Planet, because he shall overcome ; and if the Planet be evil from them both, the victor shall kill the conquered ; if one of them be strong, and the other weak, and the Planet which is in the strong House do not fall, nor hath not an evil Planet with him ; and if he which is weak be not in his own House, nor in his exaltation , nor with a good Planet, he whose Planet is in the strong House, shall overcome ; likewise he whose significator is in a mean House, shall have great fear and doubt in his heart, becauce sometimes he shall hope to conquer, and otherwhiles fear to be overcome. And note, that in a Question concerning war and kingdom,it is said that there is more power and efficacie, or fortitude in the exaltation of a Planet, then in his House ; but in all other Questions the contrary.
