In this article, we offer you to fine tune data interpretation of the theme around a question to know the interactions that these can have between them, and their different degrees of power depending on the sign where they are.
Indeed, the power of a planet is not the same in every point of the zodiac, some planets prefer this or that sign and an aversion for another. It is essential to take this into account to evaluate the balance of forces which are present, their hierarchy and obtain the most precise answer possible to a question which has been asked.
Domicile: When a planet is in the sign it rules, its energy is expressed with ease. Except for the Sun, Venus and the recently discovered planets (Uranus, Neptune, Pluto), each planet rules two signs.
Exile: A place opposite the home where the energy of the planet concerned is as if it were being thwarted, slowed down.
Exaltation: In certain signs with which it is in affinity, the power of a planet can be greatly amplified.
Fall: Conversely, a planet may be considerably weakened, unable to express its potential. It is said to be in fall and this occurs in the opposite sign to the place of exaltation.
Benefits and curses
Traditionally, in hourly astrology, planets are classified as having beneficial or malefic effects. Of course, all this must be modulated, nuanced, according to the signs they occupy and the interactions they form with other stars:
Natural benefits: Venus, Jupiter, bright Moon (approaching full moon).
Natural malefices: Sun, Mars, Saturn, head and tail of the dragon (south and north lunar nodes) and the dark Moon (approaching the new Moon).
Accidental benefits: master planets of houses 1,5 and 9.
Accidental malefices: master planets of the 6th, 8th, and 12th houses.
Special cases: a beneficial planet occupying the houses 6, 8 and 12 becomes malefic for the houses it controls. On the other hand, it destroys the maleficence of the occupied house.
Mercury is neutral.
