The 5 Essential Dignities

Domicile and Detriment: A celestial body is referred to as being in detriment (exile) when it is finds itself in the opposite star sign of the one it rules. When a celestial body is in detriment, it’s thought to be at its weakest. A celestial body’s domicile is the zodiac sign that a planet, star, or android rules over.

Exaltation and Fall: Exaltation is seen as the place of awareness for a celestial body and the fall is regarded as a position of weakness/minimum influence.

Triplicity: Triplicity refers to a group of three signs that belong to the same element.

Terms (Bounds): Terms/Bounds refer to a system that divides a star sign into five unequal parts—the five parts are ruled by one of five planets.

Face (Decan): A decan is reference to a section of a star sign, typically, each sign would be subdivided between ten days.

Domicile and Detriment

Essential Dignity is best described as what a planet feels when it finds itself in a particular star sign—it also refers to strength/weakness of a planet. Typically speaking, a planet’s Essential Dignity can be read separately from everything else that’s present on the natal chart. The Accidental Dignity refers to how a planet feels on a more personal level when it finds itself within a house on the natal chart. Unlike with Essential Dignity that tends to ignore the other celestial bodies, the Accidental Dignity will take everything into consideration.
