Chapter Summary

This appendix of the book Abraham Ibn Ezra on Nativities and Continuous Horoscopy discusses the lords of the triplicities of the ascendant of the nativity, and lords of the triplicities of the signs of the luminaries. Sefer ha-Moladot and Sefer ha-Tequfah present a method that divides human life into three equal parts, each of them ruled by one of the three lords of the triplicity of the sign where the Sun was located in a diurnal nativity, or where the Moon was located in a nocturnal nativity. As in the account of the Ptolemaic ages of man, Sefer ha-Moladot treats the tripartite division of life in two different places, once in the section on nativities and again in the section on continuous horoscopy in nativities.

Keywords: Abraham Ibn Ezra; continuous horoscopy; luminaries; nocturnal nativity; Sefer ha-Moladot; triplicities
