The Planetary Comfort Zone –
Working with the forces in the signs

A planet in its own dignity is at home and feels very comfortable; most astrologers agree this is the most harmonious vibration.  A planet in exaltation is an honored guest, and so also flows harmoniously though not perhaps as naturally; a planet in detriment is working with energies that are completely different from its own which can be very difficult; a planet in fall is like an unwelcome visitor.
