the dance of the stars

Ptolemy’s Tetrabiblos 181–182
In a special way, again, if the moon holds the place of action, and is moving away from conjunction, together with Mercury: in Taurus, Capricornus, and Cancer, she produces soothsayers (mánteis), makers of sacrifices (thýtas), and adepts in lekanomancy; in Sagittarius and Pisces necromancers and those who can arouse daemons (daimónōn kinētikoús); in Virgo and Scorpio magicians (mágous), astrologers, prophets (apophthengoménous), those who have second sight (prognṓseis échontas); in Libra, Aries, and Leo persons inspired by the Gods, interpreters of dreams, and exorcists.
