in Traditional Astrology

by triplicity - stabilise things and make matters more permanent.
A planet in his own triplicity
represents a person of a certain repute and standing in the world that
may provide required support, resources or funding. It is like a
circle of friends. A person has alliances and a
network behind him. ‘Bank’manager, sponsor or supportor; a
coordinator. People of a mutual binding or ‘family’ interest. Like
a part-holder, investor or shareholder. Positive interests. A planet that is
dignified and prominent in the chart, being the Lord of a triplicity,
but not necessarily in his own triplicity – will still signify a
source of resources shared, divided throughout the triplicity and made available in those areas of the chart. If a planet is
particularly well located, in triplicity or elsewise dignified, then
there may be dividends, rewards or royalties.
Fire by Day
offers great opportunity to fire during day. Most
magnificently to Leo
(own sign) and to Aries
aggressively, assertively, with decoration. In double portions.
Self-sustaining. Sagittarius with gesture. Strength, respect,
reference, recommendation, generous, positive, favoured, forwarded,
promoted. If the Sun is debilitated, the
triplicity is regulated and not sponsored in the same manner. Fewer
references, fewer recommendations, less funds. With disregard and
Fire by Night
Jupiter offers more to Sagittarius (own sign), in terms of opportunity, favour, esteem. Protected by the Church or Scholars. To Aries and Leo, benevolence, guards – a protector, guardian, benefactor or patron. If delibated, then terms are poor, unreliable, speculative, lofty. Someone has needs of his own.
Earth by Day
offers benevolence and reward to Taurus (own sign); but in Capricorn may have
preferences to formality, brand and etiquette (trade marks).Venus in Virgo
provides resources but may be particular on code, ethics, quality and
terms. With Venus in Earth there may be business interest, ownership
or some sort of monopoly involved.
If Venus is poor, then materials are weaker and mean, or
Earth by Night
The Moon offers Taurus (exalted) great preference and competable terms. Great opportunity. Resourcefulness. A great provider and benefactor. Virgo is quality and health oriented, but because the Moon is corurpted by Mercury there will be controversy and worry regarding specifics and requirements. With the Moon in Capricorn (detriment ) – there are breaks on and considerations to be made. Something is held back and belongs to the company. We have bought you, we own you, you are ours. You cannot to as you please. You are expected to perform an deliver according to contract. If the Moon is strong, then resourses are good, if the Moon is weak then with delay or of a mean fashion, with defects or expectations, or a catch. The Moon in Capricorn often has a difficulty with performance, some sort of personal defect or depression, but with the Moon in her own triplicity she will provide to Capricorn and when then located in that sign and dignified, there is a better chance of sorting things out.
Air by Day
offers equipment, great standards and
prestige to Libra
(exalted) and Aquarius
(own sign). In Gemini – authority stands
behind you. If Saturn is weak – nothing is
for free. Things are unwillingly provided, stolen or leased. People of
a lower class, lower means, the outcasts, or falling apart.
Air by Night
Mercury offers great readiness, aptness and availability in Gemini (own sign). Useful, with interest and participation. Libra and Aquarius through relations, companions of art and associations. If Mercury is poor, then inconsitancy – in worst case with trouble.
