About Caterina de Medici’s husband, it is well know the prognostication Luca Gaurico made for him.
Percopo, Gaurico’s biographer mentions it: “Itinera tamen aquea videntur infausta et ab equis nonnihil impedimenti et lachrimulis ex oculo sinistro fluentibus“
“Travels by water are inaspicious and accidents with horses and tears from the left eye.”
While in his Tractatus, Gaurico mentions the wonderful stellium of Sun (in his exaltation), Venus and Moon at the Ascendant, which would influence countries under Aries. In effect Moon was in Sagittarius, not in Aries- Cardano immediately caught his enemy’s mistake.
Still the prediction remained true: in 1559 King Henry was mortally wounded to the eye by a lance during a tournament.
