Rueles and Observances before youe give Judgment By A figure.

Ther be 3 principal thinges Diligently to be observed and knowene before youe give Judgment by a figure

The firste that youe knowe the directe howare and Juste Instante time that the question was moved in / and soe Erecte your figure to the same Tyme / or ells youe shall commite A greate Erroure /

The 2 is that the Lord of the howare and Dominus Assendentis be of one complection / or of one Tripplicitie or elemente or both one: or that ther be som good Aspecte betwen them or ells the question is not Radicall and youe Cannot safly Judge/

The 3 that youe have good regard to the 7. house and his Lord wher they or any of them be aflicted / by the present of an evill planet or that Dominus 7e be combuste, Retrograde or in his falle or Ani waie Letted, yf yt be as is aforsaid youe may not safly give Judgment

I have also found by Experience. that yf on com & aske a question in hora / when the doth Apply to by or that it is not good to give Any Judgmente. for that Eyther ther will som greate suspition Arise Totchinge the matter / or som troble or braull to the Judge Aboute yt. And he that gives Judgmente shalbe vexed or be broughte To som troble Aboughte yt. or be suspected or eville thoughte of or ill spoken of Thoughe his Judgmente be true. forman/
