"A planet in its own sign is similar to a person in his own house. One is able to entertain as he sees fit or do as he wishes in his own home. He has the authority to do so. A planet in its detriment is like being in someone else's house. He is not free and cannot do exactly as he pleases. Someone else has the power so he is limited. A planet in its exaltation is similar to a person whom is not only able to entertain in his own home..."

"A planet in its exaltation is similar to a person who is not only able to entertain in his own home, but he has plenty of substance so he has no limitations whatsoever. A planet in its fall is like a person who has neither the substance nor the home in which to entertain. He must go to work to earn it. In the area where that planet is placed by sign he has failed to use, or perhaps has abused, the energy tied up in that sign."
