Earth Dignities

Although, strictly speaking, the Earth has no allocated dignities, detriment could be extrapolated (in the traditional way) as the opposite of Sagittarius, where Earth is the esoteric ruler; while Exaltation and Fall could follow the paired Ray 3 planet Saturn. This is a suggestion only:

  • Exaltation: Libra (as with Saturn, opposite Sun in Aries)
  • Fall: Aries (as with Saturn)
  • Detriment: hierachical ruler of Gemini as the “waning brother” to Venus (EA 361), and opposite esoteric rulership Sagittarius,
