Intro to Dignity

Filed under Astrology Intro Topics on July 23, 2015

Each planet has signs that is favors and signs in which it is weak. This is called a planet’s “dignity.” In traditional astrology, each planet is considered a living, breathing angel and wants to help its fellow human beings in whatever they seek. When a planet is strong, it is able to help and when it is in poor dignity, it cannot. Remember that a weak planet also weakens any other planet in its signs or kingdoms.

A planet is strongest in the sign is rules. For example, the Sun in Leo. A planet is weakest in the opposite of the sign it rules. For example, Mercury in Sagittarius. A secondary strength is called “exaltation,” where a planet’s strengths are further emphasized. For example, Venus in Pisces.
