Considerations of Guido Bonatus (102-110)

  1. The 102nd Consideration is, of things signified, how they shall be found or known, and querent, and of the thing Questioned or enquired after: which two significators, if they shall be joined together with the Moon it signifies wholly and absolutely the effect of the thing; if not joined, then the contrary. And from the conjunction of the significators we ought to know why, or by what the question is made. And by the Lord of the House in which such conjunction happens, we know of what the question will be, or the end thereof~ for if that be a Fortune it will be good, according to the conditions and signification of such Fortune, and the House wherein he is, and signification of the place in which the Lord is posited of that House wherein itself is. But if it be an Infortune, it will be bad, according to the signification of the Infortunes, and such other positions as aforesaid. If the Lord of the House or Exaltation, or of any two smaller Dignities, casts an aspect, or there be a translation of light, you may know by that the question shall be brought to pass: but if there be none of these it cannot be precisely known, but it will be by or from a cause not yet discovered: and by the aspects of the fortunes or Infortunes may be known what will be the effects.
  2. The 103rd Consideration is, To mind in Nativities and general Questions in what House the Part of Fortune happens; for from the things signified by that House will the Fortune or gain of the Native or Querent arise, if the same be well disposed, otherwise the same will be cause of his misfortune and loss.
  3. The l04th Consideration, To observe in Nativities and general Questions whether the significator of the Native or Querent be posited in the Seventh from his own House, or the Opposition to the Lord of the Ascendant: for be will not in such case signify gain from the things signified by that House, but rather expense and loss.
  4. The l05th Consideration is, To observe in Nativities or general Questions, whether that an Infortune, unfortunate be in the Seventh? for that signifies that the Native or Querent shall not live in peace or any delight with his wives, sweethearts, or companions, but will perpetually have brawls and quarrels with them: it seldom happens otherwise from such a position.
  5. The l06th Consideration is, To consider in Nativities and general Questions, it a Fortune fortunate, and in no way afflicted be in the Seventh? for then the Native or Querent shall be happy in good wives and associates, yet shall have many rivals and persons that hate him, but rather out of envy than cause, so that he shall seldom bring his enterprises and designs to pass, without much labour and trouble.
  6. The 107th is, To consider in Nativities and general questions, whether Mars be in the Second or in the Tenth, and well disposed; for it denotes that the Native or Querent shall gain a Fortune or Estate by those persons that deal or work in Iron and Fire, as Smiths, Furnacemen, Glassmen, etc.: or in Victualling or keeping Inns, Taverns, etc.: but if Mars be weak or afflicted, loss and damage from all those.
  7. The 108th Is To Consider, If neither of the Planets beholds two Houses? For his virtue and fortitude shall be in that wherein he hath most dignities, and which is most proper for him, and the thing he signifies.
  8. The 109th Is, To consider whether the Lord of the Fifth be in the Seventh afflicted? For then the Native will never be happy at Feasts or Banquets; either be averse from or slighted at such meetings, or some affront put upon him; never be happy at Feasts or Banquets; either be averse from or slighted at such meetings, or some affront put upon him; nor will he ever go neat in his clothes, nor get any credit by them.
  9. The 110th is, To consider in Nativities, whether Scorpio ascends? For such a Native is never like to get any great preferment in the Roman Church: because Cancer (the Exaltations of Clerks (priests, parsons, &c., &c), will then be in the Ninth House, which signifies the Church, and Jupiter is an enemy to Mars, who is Lord of the Ascendant.
