Astrologia restaurata; or, Astrologie restored: : being an introduction to the general and chief part of the language of the stars. In four books. The first, proving the legality of astrologie, both by scripture, reason, and the testimony of the ancients and learned in former ages, wherein is cleared to every rational and impartial man the authors Lux veritatis in answer to Doctor Homes, to remain unshaken notwithstanding the Doctors unowned reply. The second, by a plain method teaching the names and characters of the planets and signs, as also the reasons thereof: and of their dignities, terms, faces, houses, exaltations and triplicities; with the reasons why the signs are reckoned from Aries; and in number just twelve; and neither more nor less; with the number of the sphears; their order and motions: being a most necessary introduction to the whole art, and very usefull to all wel-willers thereunto for inabling them to give reasons for any part thereof, &c. The third, fully comprehending instructions and rules for electing any manner of work; never before made publique in our mother tongue; the which both for the administration of physick, letting of blood, husbandry and other necessary works is both usefull and profitable. The fourth, by a most easie introduction teacheth, by revolutions of the years of the world, eclpises, great conjunctions, comets and blazing-stars, how to judge by the ordinary course and order of nature, of the general accidents of countreys, kingdoms, provinces and cities, alterations of kingdoms and empires, laws and customs, cause of plenty, dearth, wars, peace, health, sickness, alteration of the ayr, and (to be short) of all things appertaining to the life of man in a natural way; wherein is the infinite wisdom of God seen manifestly in the government of the world by the influence and constant harmony of the celestial planets and stars; the innocency, legality and purity of the art demonstrated, and proved by demonstration of the inevitable events of the heavens, so long as God upholdeth the order and course of nature unperverted; and the students thereof consequently proved rather divines then [sic] conjurers, or practisers of what is unlawfull. / By VVilliam Ramesey, Gent. Student in astrologie, physick, and the most heavenly and sublime sceinces..
