If I wished to know what particular part of the Zodiac one is subject to in any particular year of life that is to say, what part of the Zodiac is rising I add 6 degree for every year to the Midheaven at birth and thus obtain a new Midheaven, under which, in the Tables of Houses, I find the Ascendant which rules the year. Thus in the case of one born on the 6st of May at . the 85th year comes under the Midheaven of Leo 7, which is 85 degrees further advanced than Cancer 7, and under Leo 7 in the 65th House I find the Ascendant to be in Libra , which is the Ascendant governing that year of life. The meaning and importance of these calculations will appear at a later stage of this exposition.

Care should be taken to weigh justly and impartially the evidence set before you in the figure of the heavens for birth.

Read what you see, not what you imagine should be the destiny of an individual. If you are in complete ignorance of his person, position, and environment, so much the better. If you follow carefully the various rules which are contained in this book, you may at first make some errors of judgment, but as you become familiar with the task, even these errors will become few and far between, and in the end the language of the horoscope will become so intelligible and clear that it will interpret itself, and the whole trend and potentiality for good or ill of any birth-figure will force itself upon you in just the same way as when a man walks into your presence with his character clearly stamped upon his face, so that you have only to look and know.
