Hereby is to be noted: (Spell)

From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:

Hereby is to be noted:

  1. A child born on such a day will not live long, and if it lives, it will be of poor health and vigor.

  2. If persons marry on any of these days, they will be apt to separate,, and live in quarrel and poverty.

  3. If a person commences a voyage on such a day, he will generally return home sick, or meet with an accident in body or goods.

  4. On such days do not commence to build, sell no young cattle, nor sow or plant anything. Do what you may, it will all come to trouble.

  5. During these mentioned forty-two days, five days are es­pecially unlucky days, on which no journey should be taken, namely: The 3d of March, the 17th of August, the 1st, 2d and 30th of September. To this must be again noted thereof, three days are especially unlucky days, and any man shedding blood on such a day will surely die within seven or eight days there­after, as namely:

The 1st of April, on which Judas the traitor was born.

The 1st of August the devil was rejected from heaven.

The first of December Sodom and Gomorrha was destroyed.

Whoever is born on any of these unhappy days, he will die of a violent death, or will be disgraced before the world, and seldom reaches old ages.

The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
