Of the signe Virgo. chap. 15.
THE signe that is called Vrgo is ear∣thie, colde, meanly, and a night signe: the first house of Mercurius, and the ex∣altation of Mercury is in the fifth de∣grée therof. Venus is his Lord by day, & the Moone by night, and Mars is partner with them, and is of Triplicitie the se∣cond. His first face is giuen to the Sun, the second to Venus, the thirde to Mer∣curius. Of the parts of man he hath in cure the wombe and guts,* and maketh a faire person, faire eien, faire face, & séeme∣ly, and he swageth the will: and is the house of sicknesse, of seruaunts, men and women, and of beasts, and betokeneth right wisenesse and chaunging from place to place. And this signe is called Virgo, a maide: For a maide is barren, and without fruite: so the Sun entering the part of Zodiacus, that is called Vir∣go,* wasteth with his heate, humour and moisture: and so maketh the earth barren of fruite.
