He that goes about any business to a King or Prince, when the Moon is in Aquarius, he may be received: but the King will not regard him, nor his Suit.
If the Moon be in Pisces, the King will not let him see his face.
If any demand any thing of another (which may in Reason be granted) when Capricorn is in the Mid-heavens, and Jupiter in it, and the Moon applying to him; or if separating from him, she apply to the Lord of the Ascendent; or if the Lord of the Ascendent apply to Jupiter, he will quickly obtain his desire.
Venus causeth rain and moisture; Mercury, short journeys and changes.
Venus in the first degree of Cancer at the Conjunction of the Luminaries, or any other great Conjunction, causeth great Rains.
In all Elections, fortifie the Lord of the Ascendent, and the Lord of the house of the thing desired.
Saturn doth most mischief in long journeys, Mars in short.
Fixed Signes forbid journeys, moveable Signes urge them, the later end of Libra excepted.
The Moon increasing in light, in good Aspect to the Sun, helps forward Jouyneys.
When an Infortune receives a Fortune by good Aspect, it works no mischief.
