1. Those who have the ascendant between the eyes of Cancer will be blind or one-eyed. Those who have it in the first degree of Cancer, if the Moon is in that degree, will be well-born men of affairs; if Saturn is in aspect they will be sailors, fishermen, inn-keepers or shop-keepers and the like, but always low-class. Those who have it in the second degree of Cancer will be extremely noble and powerful, and through violence and greed will possess the goods of others. They will travel endless journeys but will die suddenly.
2. Those who have the ascendant in the third degree of Cancer will be hard-working businessmen, never settling in one place. Those who have it in the fourth degree always attack their enemies in every way and are superior in every contest. Those who have the ascendant in the fifth degree of Cancer will have their eyes wounded by small stones. If in the sixth degree they will be cross-eyed.
3. Those who have the ascendant in the seventh degree of Cancer will have lumps on their heads. If the Moon is moving toward the ascendant they will be clever but irreligious. But if the Moon and Mars are both in aspect to the ascendant, they will be aggressive with cruel ferocity. These men are either crucified or punished by some other public sentence.
4. The ascendant in the eighth degree of Cancer makes the natives blind. This degree is between the eyes of Cancer. In the fourth degree is the nebula (cloud, of which we have often spoken). Those who have the ascendant in the ninth degree will be sailors or pilots who steer ships through every type of sea with their skill. Those who have it in the tenth degree will fill every office with success
[The eleventh through the 24th degrees of Cancer are missing.]
5. Those who are born in the 25th degree of Cancer will attain every good fortune if the Moon is present or in aspect. But these men are guilty of adultery; their adolescence is praiseworthy but their later life is scandalous. The same is indicated for women with this chart.
