Virgo

1. Whoever has the ascendant in the first degree of Virgo will be conspicuous for his high position, provided the Moon is full or is in favorable aspect. He will become a friend of a king or queen for his literary qualities and will have many in his power. But if Mars is in aspect he will be a male prostitute and he will die in humid places. Those who have the ascendant in the second to the sixth degree of Virgo will be priests, prophets, or haruspices, conspicuous for high position.

2. Those who have the ascendant in the seventh degree of Virgo, together with a waxing Moon or one located on the ascendant, will be priests or haruspices; they will be powerful and always overcome their adversaries with their authority. But if Jupiter and Mars are in aspect to this spot, they will be generals who lead armies against the barbarians and die on the expedition. If Mercury is in aspect they will be in charge of treasures or be money-lenders.

3. But whenever Saturn approaches this spot they will be in great poverty. If Jupiter alone is in this degree, all kinds of good fortune are indicated. If the waxing Moon is in aspect to Jupiter, the natives become fast friends of the powerful through their own merits and their good looks. But if Venus is in that place she will make prostitutes of women. If Spica, the star, has the ascendant under her, the natives will be successful millers. But if the ascendant is next to Spica, they will be miserable paupers.

4. Those who have the ascendant in the eighth degree of Virgo, that is, in Spica itself, will be religious and just, conspicuous for their magnificent office, immensely wealthy, and rejoicing in many offspring. They die of old age. Those who have it in the ninth degree will be fighters who win wreaths and prizes in all contests. In the tenth degree they will be bandits always filled with unbridled greed.

5. Whoever has the ascendant in the eleventh degree of Virgo will gain fame and honor as an athlete, will be rich, and the husband of a wealthy woman; but he will die a violent death. With the ascendant in the twelfth degree he will be religious, just, and in high position. He will be a prophet, priest, or a ruler of great temples, states, or provinces. Often he will be in charge of public courts. But he will have great grief from misfortunes of children.

6. Those who have the ascendant in the 13th degree of Virgo will be lute players or hymn-writers. If in the 14th, they will also be musicians; if in the 15th, they will be gentlemen of fashion and will seek the bed of virgins. They will have an affliction of the hip and be disturbed by malignant humors, together with dried blood. Those who have the ascendant in the 16th degree will carry on important affairs but will die a violent death.

7. Whoever has the ascendant in the 17th degree of Virgo will be a gladiator assigned to public games. If in the 18th degree, they will be important priests, learned friends of kings, and always loved by women. But if Mars is in that spot or on the descendant, the natives will be punished by public death for the sake of women.

8. Whoever has the ascendant in the 19th degree of Virgo will be an architect, a builder of walls, or a worker in marble. In the 20th degree he will be a lute-player or singer of sweet songs. These men become clients of patrons who are always providing flattery for themselves through their attendants. Those who have the ascendant in the 21st degree of Virgo, that is, in the toe, will be involved in important affairs. Some will have courts entrusted to them or be friends of judges

[The 22nd to the 29th degrees of Virgo are missing.] Whoever has the ascendant in the 30th degree of Virgo, that is, in the last line, will be tempted by a demon. But if Mars is in that degree of the descendant he will be captured by pirates and killed at sea.
