A planet’s exaltation is a sign of the zodiac in which it is thought to be particularly well-placed. This means that the planet is more auspicious and powerful in this placement. The sign that is opposite to a planet’s exaltation is known as its fall or depression. This is not to be confused with each planet’s ruling sign which is where its home is. Both ruling and exaltation placements are positive, but when a planet is in exaltation it gets strength and energy from being there. An example is like when you are at the gym versus when you are at home. You are exalted at the gym gaining and exerting energy and when you are at home you are comfortable and relaxed– same applies to exalted and domicile placement for the planets. What is fascinating about Exaltation is that there is not a lot of information as to why the placements were chosen. However, there are a lot of theories as to why. It is believed that this knowledge was secretive because there is a lot of ambiguity in the very little text that we do have.
