Joys and Exaltations in the Thema Mundi[1]

Synonym: Hypsoma

A type of essential dignity.

The qualities of a planet and its sign of exaltation are similar, so that when a planet is in its sign of exaltation it is thought to express its inherent qualities in a particularly 'pure' form.

Modern astrologers do not agree on signs for exaltations of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, so the exaltations are usually restricted to the seven traditional planets.

A planet's sign of exaltation is always located opposite the sign of the same planet's fall.
