Lunar Eclipse 4 April 2015

On 4 April 2015, at 12:06UT, there will be a total lunar eclipse. The eclipse will be visible over western North America, the Pacific, East Asia, Australia and New Zealand. It is of the Saros Series 132 and the duration of the eclipse will be 4 minutes and 43 seconds. The map below shows the path of the eclipse:

Before we will discuss any possible effects on the individual person, we have a look at the mundane astrological implications of this eclipse. To be able to do this, we need to establish where the eclipse is likely to have its greatest effect. For this purpose we need to look at the countries or cities falling under the rulership of Libra, the sign wherein the eclipse Moon resides during the event. We also have to take into consideration that the eclipse’s visibility will greatly enhance its effect. Looking through traditional source material, we find that Arabia, Argentina, Bactriana (Persian Asia), Canada, Ethiopia, Jamaica and Thebes are the locations traditionally thought to fall under the rulership of Libra.

The Moon is placed in the second decanate of Libra, ruled by Saturn. Therefore we have to look at Venus and Saturn as eclipse rulers. William Lilly writes in his Annus Tenebrous, that this placement signifies: “…a rott amongst Pettyfoggers, Informers, and such like Cattle, they whipt and stript to purpose”. Venus is essentially dignified by sign rulership and triplicity, which can be seen as a positive sign. The eclipse Moon is sextile Saturn and conjunct fixed star Auva. This is the determinant star of the 13th Lunar Mansion, al-Auwa, also known as the Barker. This lunar Mansion is generally seen as a sign of benevolence and kindness and exerts a good influence on travel. It is also known that Libra and especially fixed star Auva denote issues of war and peace. William Lilly wrote that Venus as eclipse ruler generally indicates peace and harmony, stating that “…it is the fore-runner of a quiet, peaceable time upon earth … in those Countrys where the Eclipse is visible.” Time will tell though, how much the influence of peregrine Saturn will diminish those effects.

An eclipse usually affects only a small number of people. To establish the possibility of any effect to take place, the birth chart should be scrutinized for any of the following:

  • Moon is in or around 14 Libra, Sun is in or around 14 Aries
  • Moon is in or around 14 Aries (opposition)
  • Sun or Moon are in or around 14 Cancer or Capricorn (square)
  • 14 Libra is culminating in the birth chart (conjunct Midheaven)
  • 14 Libra is ascending in the birth chart (conjunct Ascendant)

Should it be the case that one or even more of these factors apply, an in-depth reading of the birth chart may be necessary to find out if, how and to what extent the native could be affected.

Back in 1977 and 1958, the spring lunar eclipse was in 14 degrees Libra. Those born in 1958 or 1977 may experience a stronger resonance. The next time a lunar eclipse will be in 14 degrees Libra will be in 2037.

Solar Eclipse 20 March 2015

On 20 March 2015, at 09:29UT, there will be a total solar eclipse. The eclipse will be visible in Svalbard, the Faroe Islands, Europe, northern and eastern Asia, and northern and western Africa. The map below shows the visibility of the eclipse:

Solar Eclipse March 2015 visibility

The astrological chart, cast for London, also shows the event:

Solar Eclipse March 2015 chart

Before we will discuss any possible effects on the individual person, we have a look at the mundane astrological implications of this eclipse. To be able to do this, we need to establish where the eclipse is likely to have its greatest effect. For this purpose we need to look at the countries or cities falling under the rulership of Pisces, the sign wherein the conjunction between Sun and Moon takes place. We also have to take into consideration that the eclipse’s visibility will greatly enhance its effect.

Looking through traditional source material, we find that France and Germany, Italy, Spain and Egypt are the locations that will most likely be affected by this solar eclipse.

The eclipse point is conjunct fixed star Scheat, one of the four stars of the Great Square of Pegasus. This star has always been associated with accidents, and particularly with drowning. Conjunct the Sun, it indicates danger through water and engines. Conjunct the Moon, it suggests worry, loss and gain of friends through criticism, danger of accidents and by water, according to Robson’s Fixed Stars and Constellations. Scheat was conjunct the Moon when the Titanic sank after she hit an iceberg in 1912.

Scheat’s nature is that of Mars, which ties in with the fact that, due to its location in the third decanate of Pisces, the eclipse is also ruled by Mars.

We find that that this “presages sedition, cruelty, bitterness of spirits, and the inhumanity of souldiers, as also much Controversy amongst Divines and Lawyers”, as William Lilly writes in his Annus Tenebrosus.

WIth Jupiter being the rulers of this eclipse, we can, according to William Lilly, expect to experience a good and peaceful time. But, as explained above, Mars is also eclipse ruler, which Lilly interprets in the way that we may see divers principal men suddenly arraigned, condemned and beheaded, impetuous storms, sudden and violent shipwrecks, and kings and princes inclined to tyranny.

divider

On a personal level, this eclipse could indicate that the native may lose their life in catastrophes, such as floods, shipwreck, mining accidents, airplane accidents, or maybe suicide. On the other hand, it is possible for a positive influence to emanate from Scheat, but only for some people. It can have a positive effect on their mental creativity, if these people are ready to receive such inflow, as Elsbeth Ebertin writes in Die Bedeutung der Fixsterne. This positive inflow is mainly shown by conjunctions between Scheat and Jupiter or Mercury. Pisces is Jupiter’s sign of rulership, but in the eclipse chart, Jupiter doesn’t aspect the Sun or Moon. The only saving grace could be that the Sun and Jupiter are in mutual reception by sign rulership.

An eclipse usually affects only a small number of people. To establish the possibility of any effect to take place, the birth chart should be scrutinized for any of the following:

  • Sun or Moon are in or around 29 Pisces
  • Sun or Moon are in or around 29 Virgo (opposition)
  • Sun or Moon are in or around 29 Gemini or Sagittarius (square)
  • 29 Pisces is culminating in the birth chart (conjunct Midheaven)
  • 29 Pisces is ascending in the birth chart (conjunct Ascendant)

Should it be the case that one or even more of these factors apply, an in-depth reading of the birth chart may be necessary to find out if, how and to what extent the native could be affected.

Rensberger’s Aspects in Nativities

In the following web log entries, I will be re-visiting Astronomia Teutsch, the astrological primer of the German mathematician and astrologer Nicolaus Rensberger. His  textbook was first printed in the vernacular in Augsburg, 1569. I posted my translation of Rensberger’s view on profections back in 2009 (Rensberger’s Profections); this time I will publish my translation of his natal aspect interpretations. For ease of access, I have split it into sections, which can be found by following the appropriate links:

Rensberger’s Planetary Aspects – Conjunctions

Conjunctions:

Saturn:

Saturn conjunct Jupiter:

If Saturn is conjunct Jupiter in a nativity, the person born will own property and [farm]land and the King’s [?ast?] and will be new in those and honourable if there is no aspect to Mars.

Saturn conjunct Mars:

Indicates that the native will be gentle but slow in what he wants to accomplish and it will be hard for him. He will die earlier than his father and mother.

Saturn conjunct Sun:

Means loss of paternal inheritance and destruction of his goods. It will be worse if the birth took place during the night.

Saturn conjunct Venus:

The native will get married to an enchantress and will not have any male heirs. He will be concerned with people of his own standing and will marry a widow or a naughty old crone.

Saturn conjunct Mercury:

Shows that the native will not be able to speak well. He will be a traveller, poor, and not willing to interfere in matters.

Saturn conjunct Moon:

The native will inherit defects and a weak body from his parents. If it is a diurnal birth and there are aspects to the benefics he will be lucky; particularly so if the Moon is waxing.

Jupiter:

Jupiter conjunct Mars:

Means that the native will rule. He will be rich and his name will be mentioned in many places. He will be lucky in war.

Jupiter conjunct Sun:

Means the native will be poor in commodities. If the birth takes place in the morning, it means luck and happiness of his father, and joy from his sons.

Jupiter conjunct Venus:

Means that the native will be brought up honourably and tenderly. He will be loved by great masters and nobles, and he will be lucky with them and his wife and children.

Jupiter conjunct Moon:

Indicates increase in rent money and interest; also wealth and luck of the native.

 Mars:

Mars conjunct Sun:

Can often show a quick death of the father, loss of paternal inheritance and interest. Also danger of loss through fire.

Mars conjunct Venus:

Indicates quarrel that ends up in court and damage because of a woman. Also adultery with wicked and terrible [partners]. If the native is female, she will be a wench.

Mars conjunct Mercury:

Makes a liar out of the native, but he will be cunning and eloquent. [He will be] polite and sweet in his manners. He will be a great procurator at court.

Mars conjunct Moon:

Means a humble life and [possibility] of mortal wounds, also a wounded mother. If the conjunction is in an angular house, the native will have disadvantages and will die a nasty death.

 Sun:

Sun conjunct Venus:

Shows a laudable person with a good reputation who loves people.

Sun conjunct Mercury:

Shows a god fearing, understanding and wise person who will be raised and put above others and the masters will do him good.

Sun conjunct Moon:

Particular judgment depends on house placement and boundaries of the conjunction. Generally speaking, it indicates that the native will meet and converse with mighty masters, but he will be short lived.

Venus:

Venus conjunct Mercury:

Suggests that the native will gravitate towards games and pleasure. He will love ornaments and adornments of the body, singing, and all kinds of cleanliness. He will be a storyteller, but harm and suffering will come to him from women. If they [the planets] are together under the rays, the native will be cut open.

Venus conjunct Moon:

Indicate a pretty body but unsteadiness in marriage. He will love other women and his wife may be an adulteress.

Mercury:

Mercury conjunct Moon:

Shows that the native will be wise and will have a great name, but he will be unsteady in all things.

Rensberger’s Planetary Aspects – Squares

Squares:

 Saturn:

 Saturn square Jupiter:

If there is a square aspect with Saturn above and to the right hand and Jupiter to the left hand, dangerous aspects of life will be signified. The amount of the paternal heritance will be diminished, all advice will be turned on its head, property will be lost, deeds will be reduced, and the senses will be dulled by vain perjuries of the mind. [They will also] plague their parents with all kinds of vileness.

But if Jupiter is above and to the right, and will aspect Saturn on the left, bad luck and the aforementioned misery and hardship will be diminished. And the parents will be elevated with the light of aristocracy, and the native will be receiving all kinds of basic necessities, according to his standing.

Saturn square Mars:

If Saturn is to the right of Mars, and Mars on the left of the square, the native’s plans will be prevented, and he will be unable to carry out duties. [There will be] all kinds of illnesses, and cold, and heat mixed into it, which will rattle the body, with shakes, that it will make one shudder. [He will] waste his paternal inheritance, and will cause the death of his brothers. But if Mars is on top, and will look at Saturn, who is to the left of the square, it indicates the sudden death of mother and father. But all deeds will be carried out with luck and [the native] will be hard working at all times. And once the problem of former nastiness has been overcome, he will not fail and be empty handed. He will not waste his paternal inheritance and not [sic] add to it through hard work. And his housemates will lie to him and shout.

Saturn square Sun:

If the Sun is to the left of Saturn, looked at with good rays, and Saturn will be highest, it will weaken the strength reported above. And it will bring loss of dignity, with cruel fall. It will cause the body to be misshapen, with constant spasms and hardening of the veins. And his parents will suffer from the same diseases and illnesses. And it means that the native’s father will die earlier than the mother, and that the native will be a burden to his parents. He will be hardened by harmful conversations and visitations, and nasty diseases with cold moisture, run together and congealed, will destroy all he did. Also the father’s inheritance.

But if the Sun is on top and will look at Saturn in the left square, it will bring strong hostility between the people in the house, and will make it impossible that the native’s intentions will come to a good end. And in early age, it will bring heavy damage, illness and weakness of the body, with many nasty diseases.

Saturn square Venus:

If Saturn is to the right of the square, and looking at Venus to the left, positioned with threatening and terrible rays, the paternal inheritance will be lost, and the heavy burden of poverty. And women or wives will suffer much sorrow and misery and they will not be graced with the pleasure of beauty. All the native’s hopes will be in vein.

But if Venus is on top, to the right of Saturn, wives will be honest and virtuous and will want to be lord and master in the husband’s house. They will always love their husband with honest disposition, but they will keep their love secret and concealed.

Saturn square Mercury:

If Saturn is on top, at the right hand of the square, it signifies a deadly affliction from the day of birth. [It] destroys the opinion of the wise councilors, and forces the native to subjugate to a foreign power or authority. He will suffer from the disadvantage of envy, and makes it difficult for some to speak, some will not be able to pronounce properly, some will have problems with their ears, making them hard of hearing or deaf. It may be that Mars will have an effect, diminished by the presence of benevolent planets.

But if Mercury is on top, and on the right side, and will look at Saturn, who is to the left, it will not show much good, but perhaps the nastiness of the square mentioned above will be diminished.

Saturn square Moon:

If Saturn is on top, to the right side of the square, and the Moon is below, to the left, it renders the native’s body [?lucklet?] with nasty moisture and breaks the movement of the mind with foul depression or frustration. And makes him unfit to do anything, and he will waste his maternal property or inheritance with quarrels in court against the mother.

But if the Moon is on top of the square, to the right, the mother will die a pitiful death and she will be haunted by danger and nasty diseases out of evil moistures, disruption of marriage, constant quarrel with the wife, and will take away the goodwill of friends and folk.

 Jupiter:

Jupiter square Mars:

If Jupiter is brighter than Mars, it shows that the native’s abilities will be acknowledged by the kings, [he will be] steadfast in his deeds and actions, and will make profit out of them. Nevertheless, it will be damaging for the sons and paternal inheritance.

But if Mars is to the right of the square and higher than Jupiter, it means that that the native will have a hard live full of work, the kings will not deal with him, and [there will be] much trouble at court.

Jupiter square Sun:

If the Sun is on top and to the right and will aspect Jupiter to the left of the square, it indicates the noble line of the father, but separation from the paternal inheritance. [He] will move away from his place of birth, the neighbours will hate him.

But if Jupiter is on top, and the Sun to the left side, [he], as well as his father, will be winners, and others will think he was miraculous.

Jupiter square Venus:

If Jupiter is on top and to the right of the square, and Venus will look at him from the left, indicates usefulness, or, concerning women, shows that he will be faithful, and pious, and honest, and righteous.

But if Jupiter is lower than Venus, and to the left hand of the square of Venus, so they say he will be a womanizer, who will be cheated on many times, because of the lure of women, he will look for and invent bodily pleasure. If he should start something, and things are about to change, or his circumstances chould change, he will always destroy the outcome.

Jupiter square Mercury:

If Mercury is to the right and higher than Jupiter, it shows the native’s wisdom, who will specialize in predictions, solving [of problems], and he will learn geometry, mathematics, and prediction of the heavens. [He] will be pious, and will undertake many things, will give to others, and [?milrigkeit?] of others.

But if Mercury should is higher, to the right of the square, he will have many labourers, he will be well off, and because of his good nature, he will receive some dignity.

Jupiter square Moon:

If Jupiter is to the right and on top in a nocturnal birth, the native will have a good name and reputation, and will be honest.

But if Mars is on top, it promises much luck, [makes one] commendable, and can make the native pleasant to dukes and kings. But this kind of luck will not last as there will be times of damage to the paternal heritage. Sometimes it can diminish the joy of dignity, attracts damage, and indicates that the native may be lazy.

Mars:

Mars square Sun:

If the Sun is on top, it indicates much trouble, waste of property, bad luck and an evil face.

But if Mars is on top, it will be worse. But in a diurnal birth, they will be stronger, particularly if the aspect is in the Ascendant. If Mars is in the descendant, or in the 10th [house] receiving the light of the waxing Moon, he will be publicly judged or punished. Similar can be expected for nocturnal births.

Mars square Venus:

If Mars is in the 10th [house], it indicates hard work concerning women. If Mars is in a moveable sign, the native will be inconsistent in his business, [he] will marry a bad woman or a wench. In a female nativity, it shows that she will be a wench

But if Venus is in the 10th [house], she will be ashamed of her deeds, and will keep secret what she committed with bad consciousness, and will hide what she did in her unashamed desire.

Mars square Mercury:

If Mars is to the right and on top, such a configuration and placement of the planets will be cause of all evil and bad luck. It is detrimental to the native, and indicates nasty illnesses, puts him in the guardhouse or prison, makes him guilty of cruel allegations and accusations. All of this will be worth in a diurnal birth. In the nocturnal [birth] it will be diminished to some degree.

But if Mercury is higher, it indicates that it will make evil, nasty and cunning people, equipped with the most evil desire of the mind, dealer in and receiver of stolen goods. [It] sends the native to prison, and they are constantly on the outlook for a place and property where they can live their evil ways.

Mars square Moon:

If Mars is to the right and on top, it indicates that the mother will become a widow, or that she will die of weakness, because of blood flow. And it will indicate a beggar and an evil death. If Mars is in the limits of Saturn, and the Moon in the limits of Mercury, or Mars, as long as his soul will remain in his body, he will give power to the evil spirits to rule over it [i.e. the soul].

But if the Moon is on top, it indicates ignoble, hard working or laboring, subservient people, who are not good at anything. [It also] shows that the mother will be of a scorned house, and amidst all misery and squalor, it shows arrogant wives.

 Sun:

Sun square Moon:

If she is angular, and the Sun in any square, it denotes dignity and honour, and power of office. If beneficial planets are looking at them, it will be even better. But if malefic planets are looking at them, it means a dangerous life, and danger of bad luck. Still, if the Moon is full and applying to Jupiter, or Jupiter will receive the conjunction of the waxing Moon, it indicates great joy of nobility, with envy.

But if the Moon is separating from Jupiter, the nastiness of the malefic planets will increase.

Venus:

Venus square Mercury:

Although it rarely happens, it creates an artist of subtle mastery, and a glorious human being, or a magister of some great discipline or teaching, but a loose woman, or because of women.

Venus square Moon:

If the Moon will be in top position, and Venus will be to her left, it indicates a great increase in money, but damage from women, or humiliation.

But if Venus is on top, she will make the native very happy, graces one’s life with happiness, and, by the deeds of one’s wife, creates invulnerable love. [It] makes good sons, full of happiness and lovely words, and affection. But the mother will be a cheat. The native will come across honest and happy wives.

Mercury:

Mercury square Moon:

If Mercury will be on top, it shows wisdom, graceful speech, but at times danger of riots.

If aspected by malefic planets, and the Moon will be opposite Mars, or in square [aspect], it indicates that he will be accused of false deals, and he will be caught, or detained, or slung in ordinary prison and kept imprisoned.

But if the Moon is on top, then the native will be unsteady, also, that they will oppose the advice of their own mind.

Rensberger’s Planetary Aspects – Trines

Trines:

 Saturn:

Saturn trine Jupiter:

If it is in a comfortable place at birth [in the chart, the native] will have with a lot of farmland, houses and churches. And if it [the trine aspect] is looking at the Moon, he will be praised and it means that he will be honoured by kings. And he will be lucky at war, particularly if one of them [Saturn or Jupiter] is in its own house and after birth, he will work in procurement and management, some will profit from inheritance, some will make much profit, which has come to them through other people’s effort and labour, and they will win. And all of this will be commanded with a strong belief.

But if they [Saturn and Jupiter] are standing this way [in a trine aspect] and are looking at Mercury, it shows that he [the native] will be in office and will be commanded by kings. But there will be great distress because of accidents of the sons.

But if they are looked at by Mars, what we said about luck will be diminished, and they will be hit by secret envy, or the good that has been decreed will be charged and cut down by Mars’ hostility.

Saturn trine Mars:

If it is in a comfortable place at birth [in the chart] and with a similar radiation of rays and in a place where one of them [Saturn or Mars] is exalted, or [is in its] boundaries [? Term rulership?] and if there is no lack of positive aspects to Jupiter and Mercury, there will be the greatest amount of profit which will increase greatly. They will also show the greatest warmth and dignity and will rule over others and will be mighty and manage departments in great places. They will witness constant change and see their brothers die.

Saturn trine Sun:

If it will be in a comfortable place at birth, as I have said, and in those [places] where they are dignified, it will give a superb life with constant dignity, and the greatest power of honour, and a good reputation. And he will be ennobled, particularly if they [Saturn and Sun] are in masculine signs and it is a day birth. But if the birth happens during the night, [he will] waste his paternal inheritance. But it s given that he will make it possible and win it back due to his own virtue.

Saturn trine Venus:

If it will be in one of their dignities, or move directly or retrograde in comfortable places at birth, it shows that the native will be mild, chaste, of good standing and reputation. They will be plagued with humiliation and envy by bad and lowly people. But they will make sure that they will take wives slowly.

Saturn trine Mercury:

If it is taking place in one of their dignities, and in comfortable places at birth, signifying a scholarly and wise [person] in what they do and don’t do, a pious man, educated, heeded, ingenious, meant to learn the liberal arts. He will be a common collector, or a fiscal authority, or a clerk, or adviser to a king, who will give great things to the native. All of this will be constant and everlasting if the star of Mercury is set at its best in the 12th house.

Saturn trine Moon:

If they are in comfortable places at birth, and in some dignity, and the Moon is fast or waxing, it happens that that the natives are beneficially looked at by the kings and mighty splendid lords at all times. They will receive kind deeds, crests and shields of the mightiest honour and power.

But if the Moon is waning, all these things will happen to a lesser degree. If the Moon is singularly in the 8th house in a nocturnal birth, luck will be increased. But in a diurnal birth, if Jupiter is in the 1st house, the same will occur.

Jupiter:

 Jupiter trine Mars:

If they are in unrighteous places, and in places where they rejoice, they signify a bold [person], who will experience dangers, together with a patron who is clever and wise, keen to gain the honour and victory. He will be a fearless custodian of his lord and by doing so he will become rich and will receive the greatest honours. These royal honours will be offered and given to him often and in high number, and also power, license and freedom.

Jupiter trine Sun:

If they are in a trine, and are in positive places at birth, they indicate the greatest splendor of aristocracy, abundance of property, and [?] also grace and wealth of the earth. It graces [the native’s] life with high honours and gives the pleasure of sons and an increase in land.

Jupiter trine Venus:

If both of them are in good places, they indicate mellifluousness and beauty, good company and much love, and also hints at a faithful nature.

Jupiter trine Mercury:

When placed as described above, he indicates intelligent, heeded, understanding [people] who are glowing with the sharpest power of understanding. [They] will happily undertake business, positioned above the rest, [?billich?] of the highest dignities. And they will always be praised for what they have achieved, will please people, will be in common offices, or royal scribes. And they will rightly and cleverly understand the secrets of the heavenly stars.

Jupiter trine Moon:

If placed as we have said, they indicate great might and rulership. And if the Moon is waxing or full, it will make people cordial, graced by the knowledge of nobility, of good standing, with a good reputation, some of them will become leaders of soldiers, some [will rule] towns, some [will become] provincial governours. A few will become what will be decreed according to their standing at birth and a few of them who are genteel will be graced with laudable benevolence.

Mars:

Mars trine Sun:

[If placed] in the way described, shows attributes of might and power. Particularly if it is a nocturnal birth and a trine to the right of the Sun, it promises the joy of praise and a high level of power. But if Jupiter is on the other side of the trine and with beneficial [?schliessung?] of the rays, if he is in the first angle and radix [Ascendant] of the birth[chart] and the Lunar ray will come to them from a beneficial place, it shows the mightiest responsibilities placed onto mighty warriors. [Also] a high number of dignities which will be greater if Mars, the Sun and Jupiter are in masculine signs.

Mars trine Venus:

[If] as I said, shows constant gain and heydays of a lucky marriage, and [signifies] those who are honest. But influenced by the spirit of pride, they will marry many times, which will be easily achieved. They will parade, bedecked with precious clothes and will possibly be openly dealing with prostitutes, or will be involved in illegal lechery.

Mars trine Mercury:

[If] as said before, describes humility and wisdom of the native. He may take on the office of rent collector, of collecting and computing and maintaining. [It] makes the very best advocates and handlers in court, who will be praised in these issues. It also indicates that they will find a lucky outcome in all dealings. [They will also] conduct their studying and writing in secrecy.

Mars trine Moon:

[If] as said before, [it] shows a clerk who will be wise in this regard. If it is a nocturnal birth, and the Moon is full, it doesn’t only indicate all joy and happiness, happy deeds with luck, but also what they desire, they will receive in an easy way. If Jupiter is aspecting them in a positive way, they will find achieve honours, riches and the honour of the world’s greatest dignity. But if the Moon is waxing, it will weaken the body with constant illness

Moon:

Moon trine Sun:

If it will be in comfortable places, it indicates the joy of great luck. If the help of the rays of the other planets is present, the [native’s] life will be graced with glorious honour.

Moon trine Venus:

If he will be in a comfortable place, and in the parts of joy, and the malefics will not be hindering, and the Moon will be waxing, in a nocturnal birth, it shows the joy of highest might, the greatest deeds, a lucky marriage, and sons, adding brothers and sisters, who he will honestly love at all times. [It also] indicates a graceful body with beauty and charm.

Moon trine Mercury:

If he will be in a confortable place, [the native] recognizes all that is good, according to the nature of the signs. Many will be eloquent speakers, others great artists, some will make good musicians, some will paint and be artists, and some who will raise high the mastery of the liberal arts, will be praised by the public, which will bring them joy. Some will wear armour, others will be merchants. All of this is to be established according to the signs and planets.
