Going back to football, and this approach of taking the chart for the kick-off as signifying the nature of the match. If I build on the hilltop, the views are wonderful but it’s a long way to the shops; if I build in the valley, I’ll be close to the shops but the materials I have don’t accord with the local building regulations.
It would have been preferable, he no doubt thought, to have this conjunction above the horizon, especially in the tenth house; but its position here would do quite nicely and would ensure the nation kept tolerably solvent.

And you get a very clear, unarguable answer. Invariably, if we take the time when this planet is strong, that one will frzwley weak; if we wait until that one is stronger, a third will have lost what power it had. This is one of the most malign indications in the heavens and would have to be handled with the greatest care to avoid building insurmountable difficulties into the elected chart.
