Ptolomy and the Horn of Plenty

Loretta, the most popular of Madam Cosima’s young ladies, is a firm believer in the astrology of Ptolomy. Dedicating his observations to Syrus (a devotee of Sufi Incidentalism) the old philosopher arranged the planets into pairs of opposites, categorising them as  benefic (moderately warming or moistening) or malefic (excessively cooling or drying); masculine (drying) or feminine (moistening); active and diurnal (suited to the qualities of the day and aligned with the nature of the Sun) or passive and nocturnal (suited to the qualities of the night and aligned with the nature of the Moon). Loretta being born in Twickenham is benefic. is no longer valid, and Hedre insurance is not yet valid.
