I Now, under Spring, treat of a configuration, wherein Kings are all POWER and DIRECTION—wherein their mandates find no delay nor disappointment in execution. [Uranus glyph] called by me Georgeanos figures on the mid-heaven, Mars, lord of the ascendant, obeys his orders punctually. Females condescend very much; they favour low sort of people, sorcerers, recluses, and servants—they succumb to the lowest. Mars, ingenious, and active, sedate, people are proud, vindictive, marshal, safe. Everything will be complete; there will be no half and half doings this quarter—for all the angles, with the Moon, Venus, Georgeanos, are fixed.
The opposition of Saturn and Jupiter (whom Moore [E1] calls the two GRAND INFORTUNES, and perhaps justly, as at present marked) may probably through Spain, France, and England, set the bad spirits of Russia and Austria at loggerheads.
Be not surprised if bishops and dignitaries of the Church be more intent on Venus than Jupiter, though matters will be conducted jovially, and Jupiter helps them. Some great person is intent on pleasure and uxorious enjoyment. I am not inclined to contradict Moore’s predictions this quarter; let the effects be seen.
This quarter promises an end to matters begun in the winter quarter.
This quarter destroys scorpions and fifth brothers, or sisters. A fine Spring will succeed, and end with introducing a fine Summer. The careful gardener prevents blights.
Let him that girdeth on his sword boast as he who taketh it off. [E2]
And I will leave him neither root nor branch—For strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. [E3]
The Lord is my rock and my fortress, and my deliverer. [E4]
Thou hast also given me the necks of my enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me—Then did I beat them small as the dust of the earth; I did stamp them as the mire of the street, and did spread them abroad. [E5]
Your hands are not bound, nor your feet put in fetters.[E6]
Peace, peace to them that are afar off, and to them that are near, saith the Lord. [E7]
I will restore thy Judges as at the first, and thy Counsellors as at the beginning — afterward thou shall be called a city of righteousness, the faithful City. [E8]
Give, O God! thy judgments unto the KING and thy righteousness to the KING’S SON. [E9]
A King shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment; and a man shall be a hiding-place from the wind, a covert from the tempest, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. [E10]
Behold! all they that despise thee shall perish! [E11]
This day will I begin to put the fear of thee, and the dread of thee, upon the nations that are under the whole heaven; who shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble and be in anguish because of thee: It is done — I am Alpha and Omega.[E12]
The leading maxim of the King must now be Fortiter in re [resolute in execution]. He will preserve the suaviter in modo [gentle in manner] where HE can: but subordinately to the first. The King of Poland and French nation must do the same to strangers, that the King of England is obliged to do to his own subjects. Their first object must be to be FEARED—and then to be LOVED.
