Above the Earth

- a planet is said to be 'above the earth' when located above the horizon, ie., placed in the 12th, 11th, 10th, 9th, 8th or 7th house.

In many kinds of charts it is considered beneficial to have the Sun, Moon or majority of the planets 'above the earth'. This may be the case, for example, in a theft chart, where it could show that hidden factors are more likely to 'come to light'; or in a chart concerning a ship in danger, where it would increase the likelihood of the ship remaining afloat.
