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