But now, what Images they did attribute to the Planets, although of these things very large volumes have

been written by the ancient wise men, so that there is no need to declare them here, notwithstanding I will

recite a few of them; for they made, from the operations of Saturn, Saturn ascending in a stone, which is

called the Loadstone, the Image of a man, having the countenance of an Hart, and Camels seet and sitting

upon a Chayr or Dragon, holding in his right hand, a sithe [scythe], in his left hand a dart; which image they

did hope would be profitable for prolongation of life; for Albumasar in his book Sadar, proveth that Saturn

conduceth to the prolongation of life; where also he telleth that certain regions of India being subject to

Saturn, there men are of a very long life and dye [die] not unless by extream old Age: They made also an

other Image of Saturn for length of dayes, in a saphire, at the hour of Saturn, Saturn ascending or

fortunately constituted, whose figure was an old man setting upon an high chayre [chair], having his hands

lifted up above his head, and in them holding a fish or Sickle, and under his feet a bunch of Grapes, his head

covered with a black or dusky coloured cloth, and all his garments black or dark coloured: They also make

this same Image against the Stone and diseases of the kidnyes [kidneys], viz. in the hour of Saturn, Saturn

ascending with the third face of Aquarius: they made also from the operations of Saturn, an Image for the

encreasing in power, Saturn ascending in Capricorn; The form of which was an old man leaning on a staff

having in his hand a crooked sickle, and cloathed in black. They also made an Image of melted Copper,

Saturn ascending in his rising, viz. in the first degree of Aries, or which is more true in the first degree of

Capricorn, which Image they affirm to speak with a mans voyce; They made also out of the operations of

Saturn, and also Mercury, an Image of cast metall, like a beautifull man, which they promised would

foretell things to come, and made it on the day of Mercuy, on the third hour of Saturn, the sign of Gemini

ascending, being the house of Mercury, signifying prophet, Saturn and Mercury being in conjunction in

Aquarius in the ninth place of Heaven, which is also called God; Moreover let Saturn have a trine aspect on

the ascendent, and the Moon in like manner, and the Sun have an aspect on the place of conjunction. Venus

obtaining some Angle may be powerfull and occidentall; let Mars be combust by the Sun, but let it not have

an aspect on Saturn and Mercury; for they said, that the splendor of the powers of these Stars was diffused

upon this Image, and it did speak with men, and declare those things which are profitable for them.
