This is a fortunate horoscope. If cup has been turned by a man it shows
that he will gain success, honour, and wealth in the profession of a
naval officer. If by a woman then her luck is bound up with that of a
sailor or marine.
The pistols on the sides show the profession of arms, and the naval gun
in the bottom of the cup accompanied by a trident the branch to which he
belongs. The on one side and the tree on the other are two of the best
signs of promotion, rewards, and prosperity. The house near the pistol
pointing towards the handle of the cup indicates the acquisition of
property, but as neither tree nor house are surrounded by dots this will
be a town, not a country, residence. The repetition of the initial 'L'
may show the name of the admiral, ship, or battle in which the officer
will win renown. The triangles confirm the other signs of good fortune.
Two pistols on sides.
A cannon in conjunction with a trident in centre.
A pair of compasses near the rim.
Several small triangles scattered about. Initial letters 'L'
(twice), 'N,' and 'V' (twice).
