2. If the Sun is in this place, with the Moon past new, the native will be apriest/priestess of the Great Goddess.
3. If the Jupiter is with the Moon (in the 3d) the native will be fortunate etc
4. Saturn and Mars in the 3d with the Moon bring bad things (details elided!)
5.If Mercury is in the 3d with the Moon, and rules (who rules? The Moon or Mercury? the sentence as written could mean either) the Lot or the ascendant, the native will foretel everyone's future.
Mercury rules the third, at least that is the meaning of the translation.

The second, like the sixth, eighth and twelfth makes no major aspect to the Ascendant. Planets placed here have difficulty contributing to the native in. a positive way (but note, if such a planet aspects the Lot, it's ruler, or the Ascendant ruler, things may not be so bad).

The second is post ascensions, (succedent) and so is not as unfortunate as the sixth or twelfth. It's succedent to the first, so it's also less unfortunate than the eighth, which is succedent to the seventh.
