ELIZABETH, QUEEN of ENGLAND. Born in Lat. 51° 32'.

Upon the ascendant we find the regal sign Sagittarius, with Jupiter, its lord, located therein ; which declares the native to inherit a most masculine and intrepid spirit, a poignant wit, and undaunted resolution; qualities which are greatly heightened by the degree ascending being in the dignities of the planet Mars.

In the twenty-first year of her age, she was oppressed and imprisoned, and suffered every species of persecution that could result from the vindictive jealousy and resentment of her enemies. During these troubles, she had operating a most malefic direction of Saturn to the quartile of the Sun, in the ninth house, which exactly describes the cause for which she was persecuted, namely, her hereditary right to the crown, and attachment to the protestant religion.

When this illustrious princess attained her twenty-fifth year, she triumphed over her domestic enemies, and was crowned Queen of England. At this time the ascendant was directed to a trine aspect of the Sun, who is the patron of honour and sovereignty.

In the sixty-ninth year of her age, this celebrated princess made her exit, under the mortal direction of the ascendant to the quartile aspect of the Sun; leaving posterity to record the blessings of her reign, in which were laid the solid foundations of the protestant establishment.

Should the young student take the pains to set a revolutional figure for the year of the native's death, he will find there was a conjunction of the two infortunes in the opposite place of the Moon in her radical nativity: and the figure itself nearly in quartile to that of her birth. The lord of the ascendant was in the eighth, and the Sun was falling in the sixth house; and on the day of her death, viz. the 24th of March, 1602, the Sun and Mars were both in the place of the direction, and the Moon in quartile of them both, as if nature herself sympathized with her subjects in the loss of their sovereign.
