Sibly's horoscope for Pope Sextus V

From Ebenezer Sibly's New and Complete Illustration of the Celestial Science of Astrology;
Horoscope: Plate no 13, following page 846. Natal report: p.849
Sibly's source: Argol

POPE SEXTUS V. Born in Lat. 43.

This nativity displays a brilliant assemblage of benignant configurations, calculated to promote the most exalted honour and felicity. To prefigure the native's future greatness, here is a most remarkable conjunction of the Sun and Jupiter in the ascendant; and, to prove that this splendour shall arise from ecclesiastical preferment, we perceive the lord of the ninth house in conjunction with the lord or the tenth, also in the ascendant. That an extensive flow of wealth and riches shall accompany this preferment, is evident from the position of the lord of the ascendant in the second house, strong in dignity, and in trine aspect of the Moon, which is in conjunction with the Part of Fortune. These are universally allowed to be the strongest arguments of future prosperity and grandeur to the native that can possibly arise from any irradiations of the stars whatever ; and the result proved the certainty of the fact. At the age of sixty-four he was elected Pope ; at which time the medium coeli came to the body of the Sun, as may be seen by equating the direction; and is a most apt configuration for producing princely honour and sovereignty. The Sun, in this nativity, is Apheta, and the Moon is Anareta ; so that, when the Sun and Moon came into contact by anaretical rays, the illustrious native departed this life, which happened on the 24th of August, 1590, at which time the Sun came to the perfect quartile of the Moon, in sixty-nine years from the day of birth, which was the exact age of the native.
