Of the signe Capricornus. Chap. 19.
MIsael sayth, That the signe that is called Capricornus, is earthie, cold, vnstable, a night signe, Saturnus first house. The exaltation of Mars is in ye 28. degree therof. Venus is his Lord by day, and the Moone by night, and Mars is par∣tener with them of Triplicitie, and is the second. The first fate is giuen to Iu∣piter, the second to Mars, the third to the Sunne. In mans body he beholdeth the knées, and giueth small leggers and drye bodyes,* rough face and hairie, guilefull & wrathful. He is called the house of Lord∣ship, of worshippe, of king and of king∣dome, of bl•i•e, and of imperie, of riches stollen and hidde Héereof speaketh Al∣bumasar. In the fourth degrée of Capri∣cornus, Cancer ariseth in 38. degrées, the head of Cancer goeth downe, and ye head of Capricornus ariseth. And is called Ca∣pricornus. For as a Goat buck is a beast with hornes standing vpwarde: so the Sunne, when he is in that part of Zodi∣acus, maketh the stinting of the Sunne in the winter, and then he beginneth to stie vpward by signes toward Aries and toward Cancer.
