Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the Hebrew text and the English translation of the second version of Abraham Ibn Ezra's Book of the World. The translation of the text talks about the conjunctions of the planets. There are 120 conjunctions of the seven planets, and each conjunction has its own judgment and verdict. But the great conjunction""the conjunction of Saturn with Jupiter at the beginning of Aries, which happens once every thousand years or close to that""is the root. All the Ancients agreed that the sign of Capricorn with Mercury governs India, and Aries and Jupiter govern Babylonia, and Taurus and Mars govern Shur, and Gemini andVenus govern Egypt, and Cancer and Mars govern Jerusalem (but the correct datum is Leo with Saturn), and Leo and Mars govern the land of ?in (China), and Virgo and Mars govern Spain.
