The alignments of the planets is most unusual this year.
Mars is due to take the ascendant
three days after the anniversary of Your Majesty's birth.
And also on that day, there is a full moon,
which governs the fortune of all princes of the female gender.
Princes of the female gender.
I mean to say, a prince who is also a woman.
Yes, Dr. Dee, I am following you.
What does it mean?
It means the rise of a great empire, Majesty, and the fall of another.
Which empire is to rise and which is to fall?
That I cannot say, Majesty.
Astrology is, as yet, more an art than a science.
Nothing more, Dr. Dee?
No more specific calamities we can guard against?
He means, will I be assassinated?
Walsingham, would you leave us for a moment?
And the private life of this prince of the female gender,
what do the stars foretell there?
These are matters of state, Majesty.
Surely the stars foretell matters of state, Dr. Dee.
For such a prediction I must look in a different chart.
