The Rules of Interpretation of the astrological chart determined by Morin
原作者:JB.morin
翻译注释:Scarrott(港台古典占星师)

  1. Each planet causes different specific effects in each of the houses. The same applies to the zodiacal signs and the stars.
    每一顆星體在每一個宮位中各有不同的效用。 同樣的法則對黃道十二星座以及恆星同樣適用。
    第二句意思是說,宮頭星座的不同會對該宮相關事務產生不同的效用,例如雙魚座是陰性變動水象星座之類。座落在宮頭的恆星亦然。

  2. In the same house, each planet produces different effects. So also does each zodiacal sign, each star.
    在同一宮位裡,每顆星體各自產生不同的作用。黃道十二宮與恆星亦然。

  3. The same planet produces certain effects by its conjunction with a planet, others by its opposition, others by its trine, others by its square, etc.
    同一顆星體跟其他星體所構成的不同相位,會在星盤裡產生特定的且不同的效用。
    例如某宮內水星與火星的相位不同,水星在第二宮裡的作用也跟著不同。

  4. The same aspect determines different effects when sent from different planets.
    同樣的相位,例如四分相,由不同的星體構成,則效果亦不同。
    例如水星與火星的四分相,與水星月亮的四分相效果不一樣。

  5. The same planet elicits different kinds of effects when it rules different houses.
    同一顆星體會因為該星體所主宰的宮位不同,而引發不同的效果。
    例如,第二宮內有水星,水星主宰第九宮頭時,跟水星主宰第五宮頭時所引發的效果亦不同。

  6. A point on the Primum Mobile (the Zodiac for practical purposes) which, in the horoscope of an individual, is occupied by a certain planet, manifests its influence depending on the properties of this planet, and acts on the individual as long as he lives.
    在個人星盤上,星體所座落的黃道位置以及該星體天性間所產生的交互作用會影響命主一輩子。
    例如火星金牛的作用方式,是火星的天性,加上金牛的陰性固定土象所共同組成。
    In a similar way, the same point of the Primum Mobile can simultaneously be the Ascendant of one person, and thus exert its influence on the life and constitution of this subject, and be found on the cusp of another house of another horoscope, and thus act on this other person in the direction of the meanings attached to this other house.
    What has just been said of the planets must be applied to their aspects.
    同樣地,黃道中任何一點也可以同時是ASC的落點,或者其他宮頭所座落之處,
    而這些落點(宮頭等)的作用與影響方式則是依照星座的天性(如水瓶座是陽性固定風象)而來。
    另外,剛才所提到的星體的作用方式(火星金牛),亦需考量星體間的相位。

  7. Each celestial agent acts only according to its own nature and power.
    每一星體根據本身的天性與力量而作用。

  8. The range of particular effects which a celestial agent can cause in connection with a given person is determined by the person's capacity to receive the influence and react to it.
    每一星體所生特定效果的類別級別取決於命主本身接受與反應該星體之力的的程度。

  9. The same agent, in the same conditions, always produces the same effects on the same subject.
    同樣的星體,在同樣的情狀下,永遠產生同樣的效果在同樣的議題上。
    Scarrott說 : 這是不可能發生的狀況。

  10. Each house differs from every other house because of its properties.
    各宮位所主宰的事務皆不同。

  11. Each planet differs from every other because of its nature, or at least because of the active properties of its influx.
    每顆星體的效用都彼此不同,因為星體各自天性不同,或者至少因為每顆星體所影響作用的事務不同。
    例如,土星影響睡眠以及記憶力,水星影響語言表達與自我反省能力等。

  12. All zodiacal signs differ among themselves either because of their elemental nature, or the active properties of their influx, or both.
    黃道十二星座各自的影響作用皆不同。
    因為陰陽性,四元素,quadruplicity等的組合不同。
    如天蠍座是陰性固定水象星座,處女是陰性變動土象。

  13. Different aspects from the same planet are different because of their properties or their power.
    同一顆星體所構成的相位不同,其效用也會跟著相位的性質不一樣。

  14. All the Fixed Stars do not possess either the same nature or the same properties.
    每一顆恆星的天性與性質都不同。

  15. Diverse astral influences combine in the native on whom they act.
    星盤裡各式各樣的星象影響交織成命主的命運。

  16. The same planet, acting conjointly with the same zodiacal sign, always causes the same specific effects, as much on the elemental plane as on the influential.
    同樣的星體,落在同樣的星座,其作用效果是一樣的。
    例如某幾人水星水瓶,作用皆是陽性固定風象。(差異在於水星座落的宮位,主宰的宮位,以及跟其他星體的相位等等,這上面已經提到過。)

  17. Two planets cannot each produce the same effects in the horoscope of a person, whether taken separately or together.
    任兩顆星體在星盤裡無法產生同樣的效果,不論是單獨或者合在一起看。
    例如第二宮內有火星與木星合象,火木各自對第二宮產生自己的影響。

  18. The same planet can cause, by means of its infuence, different effects in the same subject.
    同一顆星體,根據其影響,可以在同一議題之下產生不同的影響效果。
    例如,火星落第二宮,落火星天蠍跟火星射手所生影響不同。

  19. No planet has by its influence, the same effect on subjects of different sorts not even on many subjects of the same sort.
    根據星體天性與座落星座位置的不同,各星體對於生活各層面的事務所生的影響效用皆不同。

  20. When a planet is outside of its own sign, it provokes on thing because of its position in the house it occupies, and another because of its rulership in another house.
    當星體落在自己所主宰的星座之外,該星體會將,自己所落的宮位以及宮頭落在該星體主宰的星座的宮位,關連在一起。
    例如火星落射手第九宮,則第一宮與第八宮(白羊天蠍)會跟第九宮彼此產生關連。

  21. A planet does not signify one thing except insofar as it brings it about.
    星體所徵象的事務會因為該星體引動或者發生。

General Rules for the Interpretation of the Celestial Figure
22. Each planet always acts conjointly with the zodiacal sign in which it is found.
各星體皆依照所座落星座而生作用。
亦即星體天性,星座的陰陽、四元素、基本固定變動等。

  1. Each zodiacal sign always operates according to the nature and zodiacal state of its ruler, but not always according to the latter's local determination.
    各星座所生的效用永遠依照其星座天性(陰陽四元素,基本固定變動)以及該星座主宰星的黃道狀態而定,但並非總是會跟主宰星的local determination(宮位,主宰的宮位以及與其他星體的相位等),產生關連。
    Scarrott 說:希臘時代即有的觀念。星座為星體的延伸,星體可以進而影響星座產生的作用效果,但星座不會(MORIN是認為難以)往回對星體造成影響。
    例如,火星落金牛陷落,則白羊天蠍座落的宮頭以及這兩個星座內的星體,都會受到迫害,而該二星座所主宰的宮位相關事務也會產生險惡的影響。

  2. Each planet always acts according to the nature and zodiacal state of its dispositor. Most often it acts also by reason of the latter's terrestrial state. Finally, to a certain extent it acts also depending on its "Second Ruler".
    (Cf. Rule 52)
    每顆星體皆依照其天性以及其定位星的黃道狀態來作用。通常也會依照其定位星所落的宮位來發揮影響力。在一定程度上,該星體的作用方式也會依照其exaltation ruler而定。
    例如,某星落金牛,則受金星與月亮影響。
    比較參看下面第五十二條。

  3. In the first place, one should determine the ZODIACAL STATE of a planet, as this rules the quality of the planet's effects; then, the planet's TERRESTRIAL STATE, since this determines the category of effects.
    解盤第一步,先注意星體的黃道狀態(星座,定位星與相位等等),因為這影響到星體作用方式的性質。
    第二步,注意星體座落的宮位與主宰的宮位以及有相位星體的宮位,因為這決定該星體所影響的領域。

The zodiacal state includes as an invariable element the essential nature of the planet, and as variable elements the nature of the zodiacal sign through which it passes, the nature and state of its dispositor, and the quality of the aspects which it receives.
The terrestrial state of a planet consists in its position in relation to the horizon of the birth place, and is expressed by the planet's presence in this or that house.

  1. Any planet in favorable zodiacal state is considered to be benefic, in whatever house it is. 任何黃道狀態好的星體可被認為吉星,不論它落在哪個宮位。

Nevertheless, Saturn and Mars, even in good zodiacal state, but in an unfortunate house (VIII and XII and partially VII) produce pernicious effects.
只是土火即使黃道狀態良好,但落在第八第十二與第七宮時,仍會產生險惡的影響。

On the other hand, any planet in unfavorable zodiacal state, in whatever house, acts as a malefic. this latter circumstance accentuates further the harmful power of planets which are naturally malefic.
任何黃道狀態不好的星體不論落在哪個宮位乃以兇論,尤其是天生為兇的火土。

Any planet in mediocre zodiacal state has an influence intermediate between that of a benefic and a malefic.
任何黃道狀態中庸的星體,其效用介於吉星與兇星之間。

The helpful action of planets which are benefic by nature and zodiacal state, shows itself in the direct production of advantage when the planets are in fortunate houses, and in the suppression of disadvantage in unfortunate houses.
黃道狀態良好的吉星,落在良好的宮位則可以發揮更正面吉利的效用,
落在險惡的宮位則可以抑制減輕險惡宮位帶來的負面影響。

The harmful action of malefics by nature or zodiacal state manifests itself in the direct causation of misfortune in unfortunate houses, and by the suppression of good fortune in the fortunate houses.
黃道狀態差的兇星,落在險惡的宮位裡是雪上加霜,落在良好的宮位裡則會抑制減輕良好宮位所掌管的吉福。

  1. A planet is determined towards a particular signification by its position, its essential dignities, its aspects and antiscions, its connections with the other celestial bodies by means of their disposition, their aspects, and their antiscions. 星體徵象的事務取決於星體在星盤中的位置,essential dignities,相位,映點, 以及與其他星體藉由定位、相位與映點的連結。

The natural analogies of the planets represent only a very general determining factor and are not able to constitute a particular one. Nevertheless, when these analogies are in harmony with a particular accidental determination, they confirm the latter.
MORIN對於星體的自然徵象批評的很厲害(如月金代表妻子母親或泛指女人),但在這裡沒有收進去就是。不過當星體的自然徵象跟星體的local determination連結協調時,則可以用來確認該星體徵象事務的範疇,例如第七宮頭落天秤,則金星則徵象妻子這一類的情況。

In the contrary situation, they do not entirely invalidate or counterbalance the particular accidental determination.
MORIN的意思是星體的accidental determination重要性大於星體的自然徵象。

Connection with another planet includes two determining factors: (1) the nature and the analogies of this planet; (2) the latter's particular determination in the horoscope.
與另一顆星體的連結有兩個決定性因素需要考量:一是星體的天性與其自然徵象,二是另一顆星體在命盤中的local determination。
舉例同我上面那段。

  1. The physical position is the most powerful of the determining factors; then comes the disposition (rulership) and aspects.
    星體徵象的事務:一、宮內星大於宮主星。二、宮主星大於相位。
    例如,第二宮頭落雙子,內有木星,則木星比起水星更能指示該命主的財務。

  2. From the point of view of the action of celestial bodies, insofar as this results from their particular determination, the four following points should be noted: (1) this action may achieve the object of the determination; (2) it may prevent it from realization; (3) once realized, it may destroy it; (4) it may turn the realization into a source of happiness or unhappiness for the native.
    星體的作用方式,在一定程度內,取決於星體於星盤中的分佈狀況,(除非天象涉入,總之就是mundane astrology的範疇就是)並且有四種作用方式。一、星體可以成就其所徵象的事務或者事件。二、星體可以阻止妨害其所徵象事務事件的發生。(如太陽在第五宮有燒掉子嗣的意涵之類)三、先成就其徵象的事務事件後,再行摧毀。四、它可能導致其所徵象的事務事件成為命主幸福或者不幸的源頭。

  3. The position or rulership of a planet in a house does indicate that a category of things or accidents may or may not befall a person; but a priori and in itself position or rulership does not indicate the achievement of these things. Their effective realization - or the contrary - depends on the nature of the planet in the house or on that of its dispositor, and their zodiacal states. These same factors decise in this case the quality and the nature of the affairs to be produced.
    宮內星或宮主星指示命主生命中的事務事件可能會(或者不會)發生的生活領域。而這些生活領域是否會產生該適當的效用(例如第五宮會不會有孩子,如果有,是早夭,還是健康長大?)則取決於宮內星的天性,其定位星,以其它們的黃道狀態良好與否,而相關事務事件的性質也因此而來。

例如某男第八宮有火星落天秤,而金星落處女第七宮,則妻子可能愛花錢買高級保養品或者珠寶裝飾自己之類,簡單舉個例而已。

黃道狀態主要是針對 :
一、星體座落的星座位置
二、定位星所座落的星座位置
三、該星體與其他星體間的相位

How to proceed when a House has no Planets in it
宮內無星時

  1. When a house is devoid of planets, one judges the realization or its suppression, and the quality of the things essentially signified by the house, according to the nature and the state of its ruler. 當宮內無星時,該宮的相關事務事件的狀態與特質取決於宮頭主宰星的天性與所座落的星座與宮位。

空宫应当看宫主来决定宫位代表的生活领域的情况。
32. It is to be noted, however, that the Ascendant has a stronger significance for the life and constitution of the native than does its ruler, if the latter is absent from the First House. The aspects received by the Ascendant are in this case more powerful than those received by the ruler.
The same observation holds for the Midheaven.
需要注意的是,當ASC的主宰星沒有落在第一宮裡面時,ASC的度數本身會比其主宰星,對命主的生命與健康等等,更具有重要性。而ASC本身所接受到的相位,也比ASC主宰星更重要些。
同樣的規則也可以應用在MC上。

假如命主(上升主宰星)不在一宫的话,上升点在代表生命和命主个性上会比命主星更重要。上升点接收到的相位会比命主接收到的相位作用更有力。

对于中天也是如此。

What is indicated when only one Planet physically occupies a given House
當宮內只有單顆星體時

  1. When only one planet physically occupies a house, it will be the one which principally decides whether or not realization will occur, and what quality will characterize the events and affairs signified by the house; nevertheless, its dispositor will participate in this. 當宮內只有單顆星體時,該顆星體,將是該宮相關事務與可能發生的相關事件之特徵與性質的主要指標,但是該星體的定位星也會參與其中就是。

这颗行星会主要来决定这个宫的情况,它的定位星也应当参考。
例如第二宮內只有木星金牛,則木星金牛為第二宮相關事務事件的主要指標,但金星落的星座宮位亦會影響並決定第二宮內木星金牛的作用。

  1. Any planet which has in itself an analogy with the significations of the house where it is posited (or where it rules), realizes the matters and events of the house, whether in a helpful or harmful way, depending on the harmony or disharmony of it zodiacl state. If its analogies are contrary to the meanings of the house, it will more or less hinder or prevent the realization, or destroy what it first produces, or make the realization a source of trouble. 當星體的自然徵象(或者說天性)與其座落宮位(或主宰的宮位)所主宰的相關事務事件有協調關連時,則該顆星體,不論影響好壞(好壞取決於星體的黃道狀態),將可引發該宮位的相關事務事件。 若星體的自然徵象與該宮相關事務相左,則該星體將會阻礙,或者先建立再破壞該星體徵象的相關事務事件,或者也可能讓該星體徵象的事務事件成為命主生命中麻煩的來源。

这颗行星的本身含义如果和所在宫位或者所主宰的宫位有关(比如金星落在七宫或为七宫宫主),那么就会增强这个宫的含义。至于正面还是负面,取决于这个行星的本身状态(相位和谐等)。如果这颗行星的本身含义与所在宫位或所主宰宫位有冲突,则会或多或少阻碍或影响这个宫位的事件。
Scarrott : 例如,木星為財富的自然徵象,當木星落在第二宮財帛宮時,木星會更容易發揮他身為財富自然徵象的天性,也更能引動第二宮在命盤裡的作用。但木星的效用是傾向正面或負面以及作用方式,則端看木星的黃道狀態而定,若木星狀態不佳,例如落處女且被兇星刑剋,則命主雖有財富,但亦有損耗,或者得財方式亦有不正當之處。
再舉一例,土星天性中徵象殞落,孤立,艱困,衰敗等等,如落第十宮,與名聲社會地位,職業相關的宮位,這時候土星天性跟第十宮所主宰的事務就相左了,因此土星落入第十宮可能產生命主大起大落的經歷,可能累積一定的聲名後,再整個惡名昭彰,或者直接就阻礙或限制職業與名聲的發展等等。只是同樣地,如果土星的黃道狀態良好,那麼土星落第十宮依然能成就命主第十宮相關事務事件等等,但還是會以土星的天性來成就發生。星體的作用方式根據MORIN,有四種,這在之前也已經提過。

  1. A planet which is benefic by nature and zodiacal state, in I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, IX, X, and XI (which are the houses called fortunate) realizes the advantages indicated by the house in which it is posited. 黃道狀態良好的吉星落在良好的宮位時,則該宮位所主宰的事務事件在命盤裡會更能作用與發揮。 良好的宮位為:一、二、三、四、五、六、七、九、十、十一宮 scarrott : 不過個人還是建議將第六宮視為兇好點。

吉星如果在天宫中有好的状态,落在1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10,11宫(排除8,12这两个不幸宫位,其他的宫位都可以被认为是幸运宫位,这是Morin对fortunate house的定义,后面Morin还有说7宫可以算作一半不幸宫位,因为也象征敌人和对手),则会正面的带动这些宫位象征的事情。
Here it is always necessary to notice if and how the planet's nature and zodiacal state harmonize with the meanings of the house.
總之,考量星體天性以及其黃道狀態是否跟所落宮位(或主宰的宮位)有無協調連結是很重要的。
