♄ ☌ ♃

If ♄ be significator, he gives the querent inheritance of estates, and profit by means of agriculture; his disposition is extremely moral and grave; he may gain a fortune by merchandize, or, probably, by preaching.

If ♃ be significator, the disposition is not so good; the querent seldom meets with much success in the world; he is very niggardly, and generally acquires property by some selfish and unusual means; though he seldom enjoys it like other persons. He generally lives hated by every one for his mean and deceitful ways, and dies in obscurity.

If ♂ be in ☐ to the significator, and in aspect with, the querent is generally duped of his property, and dies a miserable death.

If ♂ be significator, the disposition is equally bad, but not quite so rash, being more sly and cowardly. Sometimes he gains favour from elderly persons, who assist him with their property, which he generally loses in the end, and becomes very unfortunate; especially if the significators be under the earth.

♄ ☌ ☉

If ♀ be significator, the querent is very artful, sly, unfortunate, destitute of friends, often disappointed by death; and he loses considerably by persons older than himself, especially if he be in trade.

p. 318

If ♄ be significator, the querent is subtle and crafty, fond of researches into antiquity; one of much gravity and considerable learning; though not always of the most agreeable manners.

If ☿ be significator, he is dull, suspicious, mean, cowardly, calculating, and covetous. Should he turn his attention to literature, he may gain some knowledge, although with great labour; and should he become an author, his writings may bring him into some disgrace.

p. 319

♃ ☌ ☉

If ♃ be significator, the querent is weak, servile, and credulous; he incurs the displeasure of men in power, by whom he is much oppressed, and often ruined; he has bad health; and is generally a vain, loquacious character, indulging in fanciful speculations about religion, and other matters, for which he is totally unqualified.

If ☉ be significator, the power of ♃ is so much destroyed by the power of ☉, that he has but very little effect; though the party will, in general, be very much given to religion, which, if ♃ be well dignified in other respects, and not ill-aspected, will be sincere, otherwise it is fanatical or hypocritical.

If ☽ be significator, he is fortunate in ecclesiastical affairs; or among mercantile men, magistrates, &c.

He has, however, too much good fortune to be injured by those persons to any serious extent.

♂ ☌ ☉

If ♂ be significator, the querent is in danger by fire, lightning, or infectious fevers; it has been said in this case, with great truth, "he has the favour of kings and princes," and it may be their frowns too, to his utter undoing; he may rise hastily, but, perhaps, to a precipice.

If ☉ be significator, the querent is brave, but headstrong and violent; he will probably attain some considerable rank in the army or navy; but he will be frequently wounded, and most probably die in battle, or be killed by some accident, or fall a victim to some contagious fever.

p. 321

If ♀ be significator, he is wicked and debauched, a companion of prostitutes, from whom he generally receives great injury; a drunkard, frequently brawling in taverns or low public-houses; though he may sometimes meet with good fortune, he will quickly dissipate whatever property he may possess in the company of the most worthless of mankind.

♂ ☌ ☿

If ♂ be significator, it represents the querent as possessed of considerable ability, a skilful mechanic, or a good mathematician; one of an acute sarcastic wit; if he be in the army or navy, for which he is well qualified, he obtains great reputation for his bravery, and is distinguished still more for the policy of his measures. He is never very scrupulous as to the means he employs; and will pay but little respect to the persons or possessions of others, when he can gain any advantage by sacrificing them to his own interest.

If ☿ be significator, he makes a cheat or swindler, a thief, robber, or treacherous miscreant; a frequenter of gaming-houses, rash, furious, and blood-thirsty.

N.B.--Any evil aspect of ♄ increases these evils, and a good aspect of ☉, ♃, or ♀, will much diminish them.

♂ ☌ ☽

If ♂ be significator, it shews one of an unsettled life and temper, and a favourite of females; he is frequently a wandering adventurer, more remarkable for the variety of his fortune than his success or abilities. He is likely to die in a strange country.

He is rash and violent, subject to burns and scalds, and has frequently some defect in the eyes; and if the ☌ happen near the Hyades, Pleiades, or Præspe, he is likely to be nearly blind. If the ☽ be applying, he is in danger of death, especially if it happen in the 8th house, or ☉ be lord of the 8th; but if ☽ be separating, the danger is not so great.

♀ ☌ ☿

If ♀ be significator, it represents one who is polite, mild, and courteous, fond of the elegant branches of literature; a

p. 323

pleasant companion, a favourite of females; and one of an excellent disposition.

If ☿ be significator, he excels in any pursuit that requires taste; a good painter, an excellent poet or musician, of a very humane disposition, and of the most prepossessing appearance.

N.B. It must be most carefully observed, whether these planets have any other familiarity at the same time; for should ♅, ♄, or ♂ be in ☐, it will make a most remarkable difference. Indeed, this must be scrupulously attended to in all cases, but especially, where ♀, ☿, or ☽ may be significator.
