THE RINGS OF DEFENSE: The Ninth Mansion, Al Tarf
“The ninth mansion is called Atarf. It begins in at 12 degrees 51 minutes and 26 seconds of Cancer and ends at 25 degrees 42 minutes and 51 seconds of the same sign. In this Mansion it is good… to help a man defend himself from being attacked by another man.”
Not the most obvious election; Al Tarf is primarily used for curses, but this was the last benevolent election for this Mansion for some time to come, and took the opportunity.
My hope is that the Moon’s trine with a virtually stationary Mercury in extreme essential debility will cause potential attackers to stumble and freeze.
