From Picatrix Book I Chapter 4: The ninth mansion is called Atarf. It begins in at 12 degrees 51 minutes and 26 seconds of Cancer and ends at 25 degrees 42 minutes and 51 seconds of the same sign. In this Mansion it is good to make to destroy crops, and to make unfortunate those who travel on journeys, to do evil to all men, and to cause division and hatred between allies, and to help a man defend himself from being attacked by another man.
From Agrippa: Achaam or Alcharph: eye of Leo. 12°51’22” Cancer hinders harvests and travellers, creates discord between men to cause infirmities. The image of a man wanting his privy parts, shutting his eyes with his hands.
From Picatrix: The ninth Mansion is Atarfa, and it is for [creating] weakness and infirmity. When the Moon has traveled into this Mansion, fashion the image of a man with no genitalia out of lead, and with his hands covering his eyes; and upon his neck write the name of the lord of this Mansion. Cense this image with pine resin, and say: You, Raubel, make such and such a child fall ill or cause the blood to flow from the child of such and such. And ask whichever of these two [things] you desire, and it shall be done as you wish if you perform properly what is written above. And know that Raubel is the name of the lord of this Mansion.
