One of the questions readers get asked a lot is “what does x think?” Some refuse to read questions like that claiming that it intrudes on someone’s privacy. However, the figures give pretty clear and obvious meanings to what a person might think on a subject and it is a difficult thing to ignore.
The following is based on Cattan’s Geomance book with some embellishments of my own. They are specifically for Geomancy questions which require a knowledge of what another is thinking about a subject. Sometimes they can be applied to wider questions but this is often not reliable. The meanings cannot be taken literally but must be taken broadly. A meaning where a person is thinking about imprisonment could be read that they are feeling trapped and unable to move rather than just going to jail.
The person is thinking about a woman, enemy or animals. They are generally positive or optimistic and want to acquire something.
The person is thinking about something lost, strife, debate, or losing their heart to a person. They are generally negative about any matter which is not connected to love. They may want to lose something from their life.
The person is thinking about sickness, imprisonment, or something lost. They are committed to a particular outcome. They are generally negative or depressed about a situation.
The person is thinking about a robbery, friends, informants, of ways and means, or messages. They are generally neutral about the question asked or are making a decision about it.
The person is frightened, or thinking about fortune or gaining money often through a woman. The are generally positive or optimistic about the question.
The person is thinking of changing where they live, or reaching out to another. The person is generally positive or optimistic about the question but that is changing.
The person is thinking about a way, or sad things. They might be depressed about the subject and need considerable persuading.
The person is thinking about something doubtful, or travel, or lost money. They are generally uncertain about anything related to the question.
The person is thinking about moving, or childbirth, or starting something new. They are generally optimistic about anything related to the question provided that it involves novelty.
The person is thinking about some journey or process to be made, or some loss, or an ending. This figure sometimes appears when the person is against any action suggested by the question (unless it brings something to an end). They are generally negative about anything related to the question unless it brings something to a conclusion.
The person is angry, fearful or turned on about the subject of the question. They are generally angry about the subject of the question and violently opposed to it.
The person is thoughtful and sees many different possibilities. They might be thinking of a woman, money or love. They are generally positive about the question.
The person is thinking about some good or happy thing. They might be considering some form of expansion or development. They are generally positive about the question.
The person is scared particularly about losing friends or making them angry. They could be depressed but committed to the final outcome. Generally they are negative about the question.
The person is thinking about a woman, money, cars, conflict and love. They could be considering new projects. They are generally positive about the question but might have objections.
The person is thinking about someone they love or some form of movement and progression. They might be depressed due to sickness. They are generally positive about the question.
A person’s boyfriend has been ghosting them and ignoring her calls. After three weeks they called and it turned out that they had a serious illness, but after informing them that they were in the hospital the ghosting occurred again.
The person wanted to know what the boyfriend was thinking about their relationship. This was a seventh house question. The court was LW Conjunctio, RW Carcer and a Via Judge. The Judge is against the question and favours Conjunctio. The querent is unable to do anything (carcer) as the Quested is in the process of making some decision. He is waxing and waning on the issue is and unsure what he should do. This basically means his thoughts are hard to read as he is probably uncertain.
Looking at the chart, he is Fortuna Major. This suggests that he is generally feeling positive about the relationship but is frightened. He might be thinking of using her for money or stability.
He is in companionship with Tristitia which means he is generally depressed but is frightened of losing the person from their life, perhaps he sees her as an opportunity.
