Cauda Draconis, in all and singular the respective Houses aforesaid, giveth the contrary judgement to Caput. And these are the natures of the figures of Geomancy, and their judgements, in all and singular their Houses, upon all maner of Questions to be propounded, of or concerning any matter or thing whatsoever.

But now in the maner of proceeding to judgement, this you are especially to observe; That whensoever any Question shall be proposed to you, which is contained in any of the Houses, that you shall not onely answer thereunto by the figure contained in such a House; but beholding and diligently respecting all the figures, and the Iudex itself in two Houses, you shall ground the face of judgement. You shall therefore consider the figure of the thing quesited or enquired after, if he shall multiply himself by the other places of the figures, that you may cause them also to be partakers in your judgement: as for example, if a Question shall be propounded of the second House concerning a theef, and the figure of the second House shall be found in the sixth, it declareth the theef to be some of ones own houshold or servants: and after this maner shall you judge and consider of the rest; for this whole Art consisteth in the Commixtures of the figures, and the natures thereof; which whosoever doth rightly practice, he shall alwaies declare most true and certain judgements upon every particular thing whatsoever.
