Planetary Exaltation and Astrology

Post by Demonia on 02.06.14 10:44

As I continue my search for knowledge I've only recently become aware of how important the planets and the stars are in our lives all the time

I'm particularly interested in the planets and their times of exaltation and debilitation ... Like how when the Sun is in the sign of Aries, the Sun is at it's Peak window of strength.


I'm no astrologer here though, and am just now learning all of this. Is there a way to know when the planets are going to be in their exalted state?


I know that some only happen a few couple of years/decades. I want to know when the next one will occur if anyone knows how to determine this...!

also planetary days and hours and their significance fascinates me too.

Does anyone do specific things/rituals on specific days here? I would love to know more information on certain things to do for certain benefits at certain days and times.

for some info on planets :

http://www.cyberastro.com/articles/planets.asp : more specific info on planets and their exaltation and debilitation

http://www.lunarium.co.uk/planets/hours.jsp : Planetary Days and Hours


Sorry if this is common knowledge for most here. I'm rather late in the game to understand all of this and any extra info is greatly appreciated Smile !

Yeah... I realized that doing anything, ritual or creating jewelry for a talisman or a sigil, art, a tattooing, or just a simple action or routine under an exaltation of a planet that corresponds with what you're trying to achieve could expand the results greatly.

I can only speculate that certain holidays and traditions that fall on certain days had more to them in regards to these elements that get forgotten or overlooked nowadays. i myself forgot that the days of the week are actually named after the planets, all for a reason.

even down to studying your birth chart and what degree the planets were at your time of birth, what your sign is and everything can correspond. i still dont fully understand birth charts and the different houses, but i did do this little chart and read my results, each being pretty spot on in describing my personality and traits. you can also do things with your birth chart that would be like your own personal exaltation of sorts.

for any interested in getting their birth chart here's a link to the one i used:

I'll be looking for some local astronomers tomorrow in hopes of some results, and will share if i can find any more information Smile

I continue to dig deeper,
there are also along with debilitation and exaltation, term, face, triplicity, and quadruplicity. possibly more as i continue to search !

here is great little PDF that explores all of this, including planetary term, triplicity, and face. it goes into detail but also explains things so you can understand what is the benefit of each and how they operate and what they mean.

more information on triplicities:

http://www.skyscript.co.uk/triplicities.html

and

http://www.skyscript.co.uk/dig3.html

"The ancient Egyptians and the ancient Mesopotamians both had their own system of term rulers, which Ptolemy recorded and explained, demonstrating how these ancient systems depended upon different logic.Ptolemy argued in favour of the Egyptian system and, as well as the usual table of Egyptian terms, he also published what he believed to be an older table, which was discovered in an ancient manuscript. This document also contained a rationale to explain their order, but unfortunately it was badly decayed, so Ptolemy could only pass on the gist of this ancient information, which explains most - but not all - of the length and arrangement of each term."

I am even more curious to know the specific egyptian planetary information...!

I will post what I find here for anyone interested, and anyone else is welcome to contribute/share their thoughts as well.

There is interesting information there, thanks Demonia. I can't be of great help as this is one of those fields I really lack expertise but may get deeper into it as soon as I find some time.

!!!!!! quote: "Next Thursday (19th of June 2014 between 9:45 -10:42 GMT+3) there will be a beautiful and rare planetary alignment. Venus, which has entered her own sign of Taurus last month, will be emitting a ray of affection to the exalted Jupiter (in Cancer) with an exact sextile aspect (harmonious configuration). This sextile will be active for a few days, but what's unique to this day is the the Moon will also be joining this beautiful and auspicious meeting. The Moon will send an harmonious and supporting ray to Jupiter and Venus (trine to Jupiter, sextile to Venus) further reinforcing their celestial union. This three planet configuration is called a B-sextile, with Venus on the apex.
This is not only a celestial meeting of the three "benefics", but it is a meeting in a very special circumstances. They are not only strong in the signs they are in, but a deeper connection is also interweaved through "mutual receptions"; the Moon rules Cancer and is Exalted in Taurus, the two signs occupied by Jupiter and Venus, and are in Pisces' a sign ruled by Jupiter and is the Exaltation of Venus. This greatly enhances the configuration and insures the unifying, stable and beneficial relationship of the three."

Jupiter exaltation= "Jupiter is considered as the most beneficial planet for mankind and will function best in Cancer because of the water element. Jupiter is the planet of wisdom or knowledge ... Exalted Jupiter gives a person,x humility because of true wisdom. Exalted Jupiter makes him true guru who dispenses knowledge and wisdom for benefit of all. It is the planet of luck, divine grace which can fulfill all our needs without our seeking."

Venus exaltation= "Venus in Pisces signifies infinite love and our infinite appreciation of beauty and passion.Venus exalted in our chart signifies our aspiration to beauty and truth through which we can realize the power of infinite love beyond our senses and pleasure that is the love of God or realization of the God within ourselves."

Moon exaltation= "...Fixed types are firm, stable and determined about who they are and what they do. Exalted Moon in Taurus brings the best of lunar qualities in the person. They seek balance and harmony in individual relationships and in their organizations of immediate environment. It gives a strong sense of form and beauty, the best of lunar qualities. It can make them very romantic and devotional"

yay so excited this is a great opportunity for some interesting practices! take advantage while you can and utilize the planets' energy!
