Re: Exaltations - another take

These are astronomy terms. A superior planet is one farther from the Sun than Earth is. An inferior planet is closer to the Sun. Another way to say it: By their relative speeds, the ancients saw the spheres of the planets in the order Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon. The first four ...

I do notice a few trends with traditional exaltations. All the Rim/Cardinal signs have exaltations. Aries - Sun, Cancer - Jupiter, Libra - Saturn, Capricorn - Mars. And they're all superior planets (plus Sun, so I perhaps should say "none of them are inferior planets"). The Spoke/Mutable signs are ...
