Nadineday said:And I must have gotten confused about triplicities, my understanding was the determining factor is if one's birth time was day or night and then this was proceeded by looking to sun/day or moon/night. This is where I may have gotten confused, once deciding on Moon/Sun, I then looked to the occupying sign, and then to the planet triplicities assigned to sign/day or night. And this is where I began to see where dignities or detriment may pursue. Am I completely off base..
Off base a little bit, yes.
You started out right, it's important to note if the chart is diurnal or nocturnal, because that's going to tell you which of the planets is in charge of that triplicity at that time.
However, going to the sect light and identifying its triplicity lords is a specific technique related to quality of life and eminence of an individual. It doesn't really have to do with the assignment of the dignity itself.
So, if you're doing this technique with a chart of an individual who was born at night, you'd look to their Moon, let's say their Moon is in a Fire Sign, so then you'd look at Jupiter (night ruler of Fire) and see what he's all about, then you'd look to the Sun (day ruler of Fire), and when you were finished with him you'd look to Saturn (who participates and always goes third).
Hope that makes sense.
