Regarding the age, the Moon and Mercury act most powerful under the age of 15, Venus and Mars from 15 to 25, Sun and Jupiter from 25 to 50, and Saturn and Uranus in old age. Although Saturn has a powerful influence at the age of 30, 45 and 60. while Mars and the Sun act very powerful at the age of 19, 27 and 38. In judging from a Horary figure, we have a very stubborn matter to deal with. Judging of sickness, is quite different from giving judgment on finances, lawsuits, journeys and other affairs, and I would advise all astrologers to use a little care in giving their opinion from a horary figure. 1 have found the following rules
almost indispensable in this respect.

DRUGS RULED BY THE PLANETS AND SIGNS. The rule usually followed by the great army of ancient and modern Astrologers in judging what each particle of matter, such as plant and animal life is ruled by is
