Exaltation of the Septener Planets

In addition to signs of rulership, the planets manifest their power in signs of exaltation. Exaltation indicates a strong desire of the native to manifest the principle of the planet in the outward world, which is not always possible to accomplish. The main reason for this is the lack of desire to manifest the principle of the planet in life. Without the active use of the energy of the planet, there will be no realization.

Now that we have obtained a pretty fair and accurate idea of the three main elements of Astrological lore, to-wit: The Signs of the Zodiac, the Planets and the Solar Houses, I want to enter into some further revelations which you will not find in any other works of the kind published on this side of the water or in England.
