DIGNITIES AND DEBILITIES

 

* Traditionally the qualities of planets are considered more easily (or less easily) expressed in certain signs than in others. *

Rulership/Dignified - planets thought to be strongest in the signs they rule.

  Exaltation -
second strongest placement of a planet

  Detriment
(usually in the sign opposite its rulership) - considered a weak placement for the planet

  Fall
(usually in the sign opposite its exaltation) - thought of as the weakest placement for the planet.

Are You Up for The Challenge ??

Intermediate Homework

Consider each Planet in its dignity, exaltation, detriment and fall.
Go through each of the planets through each of the signs and discuss why the planet feels "comfortable," or not very comfortable in that sign.
