TOPBehold the ascendant, his Lord and Moon, these signifie the querent; the seventh house and his Lord are for the Adversary. If the lord of the ascendant or the Moon be joyned to the lord of the seventh, or be in Sextile or Trine aspect with mutuall Reception, the parties will easily of themselves accord, and compose all difficulties without mediation of any, or with a little entreaty.
TOPHaving considered the former significators, now observe the significator of the Judge, who is ever the lord of the tenthth house, and whether he aspect either of the significators, viz-whether the lord of the ascendant or seventh, or be in Conjunction with either of them; see if the lord of the ascendant hastens to the Conjunction of the lord of the seventh, or the lord of the seventh to him, and that the lord of the tenth house doth frustrate their Conjunction, it's then an argument they shall not agree before they have been at law, and herein the Judge or Lawyer seems faulty, who will not permit the parties to compose their differences: see if the Moon transferre light between the lord of the ascendant and seventh; if she doe not, see, if any other Planet carry their influence or light to each other; for if it be so, itis like some or other interpose their paines, and reconcile the parties though they be in law.
TOPBehold the significator of the Judge who is to give sentence in the Cause, which is the lord of the tenth house, whether he be direct, and behold them, for then he will proceed according to order of law in the Cause, and will endeavour to shorten and determine it; but if he be Retrograde, it's an argument the Judge will not goe on or proceed according to order of lax,,, nor will he care to end it; nay it's rather probable he will prolong it a longer time then he ought by law: judge the same if the Lord of the ascendant be separated from the Lord of the seventh, or the Lord of the seventh from the Lord of the ascendant.
TOPBut to be short, in these like Judgments observe this method; the Querent is signified by the Lord of the ascendant, the Adversary by the Lord of the seventh, the Judge by the Lord of the tenth, the end of the matter from the Lord of the fourth; consider well the Lords of the houses, their Fortitudes, and whether they be in Angles, Succedants or Cadents, Fortunate or not Fortunate; for the Planet that' is most strong, and best posited, is the best man, and most likely to carry the victory, and hath the best Cause.
