Reading the Essential Dignity Table - Answers



Question 1)
In a day-time chart, Saturn is placed at 15°35' Taurus. List the planets that rule Saturn's position by sign, exaltation, triplicity, term and face. Does Saturn have any essential dignity in this position?

Answer:

Sign = Venus
Exaltation = Moon
Triplicity = Venus
Term = Jupiter
Face = Moon

Saturn rules none of these and therefore has no essential dignity in this position. It is termed 'peregrine'.



Question 2)
In a night-time chart, the Moon is placed at 19°45' Cancer. List the planets that rule the Moon's position by sign, exaltation, triplicity, term and face. Does the Moon have any essential dignity in this position?

Answer:

Sign = Moon
Exaltation = Jupiter
Triplicity = Mars
Term = Mercury
Face = Mercury


Since the Moon holds rulership by sign, it is essentially dignified and therefore not classed as peregrine.



Question 3)
In which three signs is Venus essentially debilitated?

Answer:

Venus is in its sign of detriment when placed in Aries or Scorpio; it is in its sign of fall in Virgo. It would be considered 'essentially debilitated' in any of these three signs.



Question 4)
In a night-time chart Mercury is at 26°12 Aries. List the planets that rule Mercury's position by sign, exaltation, triplicity, term and face. Does Mercury have any essential dignity in this position?

Answer:

Sign = Mars
Exaltation = Sun
Triplicity = Jupiter
Term = Saturn
Face = Venus

Mercury has no essential dignity in this position, and is therefore considered peregrine.
