This native rose, from a very humble sphere in life, to be physician to his majesty James the Second, King of England. In the figure we find Mars in his exaltation, and in reception of Saturn, with the Moon in opposition to one, and in quartile to the other. This configuration gave the native a very acute and satirical turn of mind. The strokes of his pen, when directed against his enemies, were poignant and severe; and, even when drawn in behalf of his friends, he could not help exposing their inadvertencies, and attacking their weak side.
In the grand endowments of solid sense and understanding, this native was in no respect deficient; as is apparent by the situation of Mercury with the Sun, in the scientific sign Aquaries; both which significators being in the trine of the Moon, and in Textile of their dispositor Saturn, afford the highest proofs of a mind enriched with every brilliant endowment.
That the native should be rich and fortunate, and arrive to the pinnacle of honour and preferment in human life, is apparent, from the position of the two fortunate planets, which behold each other in a sextile configuration, whilst the Moon, lady of the eleventh house, the lord of the medium coeli, and the vital Sun, behold each other in a benefic trine. But this nativity having been already most completely investigated, renders it unnecessary for me to speak of its directions.
