MARY, OUEEN of ENGLAND. Born in Lat. 51° 34'.

In this geniture we find Saturn lord of the ascendant, out of all his own dignities, but in the dignities of Jupiter, and in a fiery sign. Jupiter we find is the dispositor of Saturn ; but is posited in a fiery sign likewise. These are infallible arguments of an oppressive and rigorous government. The Moon, being in opposition to Jupiter from angles, hath designation of grievous dissentions about religion. The quartile configurations of the Sun with Mars, and Mars with Mercury, in the dignities of Jupiter, in bicorporal signs, near Aldebaran, show the dishonourable and bloody reign of this princess, and the persecution of her subjects in matters of conscience and religion. Venus, being lady of the third house, represents her sister; and, being posited in the twelfth, most aptly declares her sister's imprisonment; and the more so, as Saturn is not only lord of the ascendant, but lord likewise of the twelfth, the house of imprisonment and affliction.

When the ascendant came to the sextile of the Sun, she succeeded to the crown of Great Britain, namely, in the year 1553, being then near thirty-seven years of age. In the year 1554, she was suddenly married to Philip king of Spain, under the direction of the Sun to the trine of Venus.

This native died in the forty-second year of her age, after she had reigned about five years and a half. The time and manner of her death are pointed out by the Sun, which is giver of life, directed to the quartile of the Moon, in quartile to Saturn, lord of the ascendant; and on the day she died the Moon came to the opposition of Mars. These directions are all of a violent nature, and whoever equates them by the Sun's motion will find them correspond exactly to the time and manner of her death.
