Al-fargh al-weeal and al-thani or muqaddam and mu'akhkhar, are each marked by two stars, situated a spear length from each other, and all from Pegasus.

The twenty-sixth Mansion is Alfarg Primus, and it is for the creation of love. When the Moon has passed into it, take white wax and mastic and melt them together; from these fashion the image of a woman with her hair unbound and before her a vessel placed as if to receive her hair. Cense it will sweet-smelling odors, and say: You, Tagriel, bring me to the love and friendship of such and such a woman. Place the image in a small bag, and place with it also some of the most sweet-smelling of substances; carry it with you, and it shall be completed as you have requested. And know that Tagriel is the name of the lord of this Mansion.

It is a benefic mansion and gives a positive answer in general to inquiries. It also can indicate recovery from illness and health in general.
