Questions of the seventh
If you would be informed concerning any one being
that is gone to any right? whether he shall return safe, see the
Lord of the Ascendent; if he be good, that is , with good Planers,
and a good Planet in the first, he will return safe; but if the Sun
be with the Lord of the first,in any part of the Question, let him
not go, because the Sun burneth him. And if the Lord of the seventh
be with a good Planet, and the Lord of the first with a good Planet
likewife, he shall have some impediment in the way ; but he will
not die. And if an evil Planet be with the Lord of the first, and a
good Planet in the first, if he goeth he shall suffer great damage,
but not death ; nevertheless he may be grievously wounded. And if Saturn be in the first, or with the Lord of the
first, let him not go ; because some impediment will happen unto
him by some man that he will meet. And if there be an evil Planet
with the Lord of the first, or Saturn be in the first, or with the
Lord of the first, he will be wounded with wood or with a stone. If
Mars and the Dragons Tail be in the first, or with the Lord of the
first ; or if there be evil Planets in the first, or with the Lord
of the first, he will suffer wounds or death. See likewise if there
be an evil Planer in the eighth, because then death is to be
feared. And if the Sun be with the Lord of the seventh, or in the
eighth , it signifies that it is ill to go. The like judgement, is
of the seventh and the tenth.
And if a Question be proposed concerning the event of wars, see the seventh and the first, and their Lords: for the first House and his Lord signifies the Querent ; and the seventh House and his Lord the adversary. So that if there be good Planets in the first, and evil in the seventh ; and if the Lord of the first and seventh be evil, the Querent shall overcome : but if there be an evil Planet with the Lord of the first, and an evil Planet in the first, and the Lord of the seventh good, or in the seventh, the Querent shall be overcome, or taken, or slain. And if the Lords of them both be in the first, and there be good Planets from the part of the first House, unto the end of the House which is the middle of the Question ; and if evil Planets do possess the other half of the Question, that is to say, from the seventh unto the end of the twelfth house, the Adversary shall overcome. But if both the Lords shall be in the Ascendent, and if they be good from the part of the first, and evil from the part of the seventh,they shall both suffer great loss, but the Querent shall have the better in the end. Bur if the Lord of the Ascendent be in the seventh, or in his Question, it signifies fortitude of the adversary : and if the Lord of the seventh be in the first, or in his Question, it signifies fortitude of the actor. And if the Lord of the Ascendent 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,it signifies the death of the Querent. And if the Lord of the seventh be in the second, or with his Lord ; or the Lord of the second in the seventh, or with the Lord of the seventh, it signifies the death of the enemy.
If you would know whether War shall continue long or nor, if mean or meanly, if the Lords of the first and the seventh do agree, the parties shall be pacified after the War.
If thou wouldest depart from the place wherein thou are, and remove thy self to some other place ; and if thou wouldest know whether it be better for thee to stay or go ; or concerning two businesses, if thou desirest to know which of them is most expedient for thee to undertake, consider the Lords of the first and the second, for those places to which thou wouldest go, the place wherein chou are, and the gain which thou gettest there ; and the seventh and the eighth, and their Lords, for the place to which thou wouldest go, and the gain which thou mayst get there : and those places chuse, whose Lords are the better, or joyned to the better Planets. Or otherwise : behold the Lord of the Ascendent, and the Moon ; which if they be separated from evil Planets, and joyned to good and fortunate Planets, it is better for thee to go from the place where thou art, then to stay there, and to do what business foever thou hast in thy minde. And if the Lord of the Ascendent and the Moon be separated from the Fortunes, and joyned to evil Planets, then it is not good for thee to remove thy self, nor to do thy business. Or thus ; See the Moon ; and if the Planet from which she is separated be better then that to whom she is joyned, do not remove : and if the Planet which she is joyned to, be better then that from which she is separated, then go.
