Essential Dignities: What Does a Fall Planet Mean in Astrology?

In modern astrology, these vital dignities don't determine success or failure. They are just indicators of where you need to strive harder.

In classical astrology, a planet in fall or detriment meant bad luck or a dismal outlook in the area ruled by the planet.

However, this location isn't “bad”. It just means you may have to work harder in your fall placement. Sometimes the things we have to work at become our strengths!
