Sol Iustitiae (So-called "Sun of Righteousness")[1]

The sign of a planet in its fall is always opposite to its sign of exaltation. In traditional and horary astrology, planets in their fall are weakened, or at least they behave in a way that is foreign to their innate qualities. Signs of planetary exaltations and falls for the outer planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are not widely agreed upon by modern astrologers, so the falls are usually restricted to the seven traditional planets.

Notes and References

  1. Albrecht Dürer's engraving (1499/ 1500) received a wrong name. The art historians didn't notice its astrological connotations (see Klemens Ludwig: Astrologie in der Kunst, Chiron-Verlag, 2013, 234S., ISBN-13: 9783899972160, ISBN-10: 3899972163). It illustrates:
    The Sun rules in Leo,
    is exalted in Aries,
    and in his fall in Libra.
