Comment by Van Berkel

Source text: 2000-Chomarat-facsimile
La grand copie qui passera les monts,
Saturne en l'Arq tournant du poisson Mars: 
Venins cachés soubz testes de saulmons,
Leur chief pendu à fil de polemars.

Translation (Van Berkel, 2002)
The great force which will pass the mountains,
Saturn in Sagittarius, Mars turning from the fish:
Poison hidden under the heads of salmon,
Their war chief hung with cord.

Van Berkel categorizes this quatrain as a horary chart quatrain.
The second line. The "turning" of Mars in Pisces (fish) means that Mars is changing its direction, i.e. from direct into retrograde or from retrograde into direct. This change of direction has to occur while Saturn is in Sagittarius.
In the imagination period (October 16, 1524 - February 27, 1554), on October 8, 1546, there was a configuration in which Mars changed from retrograde into direct on the 20th degree of Pisces. At that time, Mars was in square aspect with Saturn on the 21st degree of Sagittarius.
The fulfilment date of this quatrain is May 19, 3255.

 

Comment by Brind'Amour

La grand copie que passera les monts,
Saturne en l'Arq. tournant du poisson Mars: 
Venins cachés sous testes de saulmons,
Leur chief pendu à fil de polemars.

Brind'Amour interprets the second line as a reference to the beginning of the retrogradation of Mars in Pisces while Saturn is in Sagittarius. He dates the configuration in autumn 1546.[1]
Software data show that the retrogradation of Mars started on August 6-7, 1546, at 1 Aries. From August 19, 1546, Mars went retrograde in Pisces.

La grand copie qui passera les monts.
Saturne en l'Arq tournant du poisson Mars:
Venins cachés soubs testes de saumons,
Leur chief pendu à fil de polemars.

Translation (Wöllner, 1926)
Das grosse Heer, das die Berge überschreidet,
Saturn im Schützen und rücklaüfig in den Fischen Mars.
Giften sind verborgen unter den Köpfen von Lachsen.
Ihr Führer wird gehangen an der Schnur von... (?)

Wöllner interprets the second line as a reference to the beginning of the retrogradation of Mars in Pisces while Saturn is in Sagittarius. According to his calculations, this is the case on July 18, 1546, July 17, 1751 and July 13, 2193 (all data according to the Julian calendar).[2]
Software data show that Mars is still direct on July 18, 1546, July 17, 1751 and July 13, 2193, and not stationary retrograde.
