Planets in Detriment or Fall – Robert Hand Article

I’ll be going to a meditation retreat starting tomorrow til 28th. My spiritual teacher is coming from India, which doesn’t happen very often – so I’m looking forward to it.

I’ll leave you with a Robert Hand article discussing planets in their Detriment or Fall:

The idea is quite simple. Detriment and fall do not really weaken a planet. It is more our problem. We are more creative with these planets when we are being conscious beings and less creative when we are less conscious.

It’s thought provoking especially if you have planets in their Fall or Detriment. Personal example: I have Saturn in Leo (Detriment) – according to Hand’s thinking, I would need to consciously adopt more Aquarian way of being: to call less attention to myself; to work with others; be more conscious of the benefit of the group; to be accepting and friendly to all; to innovate and intellectualize with others. Be a great team player (rather than a dictator, which this position is prone to becoming.)

While I’m Away

If you have questions or request for a specific astrology topic, feel free to post it on the comments section, or send me an email – I’ll get to it when I come back. Have a nice week!

    can you please have a topic on Quintiles? I’ve read around the web about the subject but would like to know more about it.

    Is it like:
    * talents that we’ve developed in other lifes and may not be councious of them in this?
    * a special talent/gift and/or compulsion? (Also the word Magic! keeps getting mentioned.)
    * Is it related with artstic expression (writing, painting, composing) But also with the sciences and math?

    What else could it be?

    I have 3 biquintiles:
    – 6th house mars/1th house neptune (I think I have to put my creative energies at the service of others: otherwise sucess will never come)
    – 3rd H. jupiter/8th H. saturn (wich might explain how sometimes I get Obsessive about astrology. Another thing that I tought: maybe I have a talent to write erotica, lol! Never wrote it, so I don’t know :p)
    – Sun (H9)/P. Fortune(H.4)

    And a quintil: Saturn/Chiron (5th house) – healing others’ love relashionships trough astrology…? (I’m making this up, lol. Seriously: how can this Quintile be interpreted?)

    Thank you.

    Hi Dunyazade,

    Good idea! Let me see if I can do some work on it.

    You’re right it’s not really limited to artistic professions…more on it later.

    Okay, the post will be up tomorrow but I’ll answer some of the specific questions you asked:

    1)Not sure about past life (who is?)
    2)special talent – maybe, but look at the rest of the horoscope to see it confirmed in other ways
    3)art, writing, music, science – all a possibility depending on the rest of the horoscope and the individual background.
    4)Biquintiles – I choose not to go there – too many measurements :)
    5)Saturn Q Chiron – I think teaching about healing subject (5th and Saturn – teaching).

    Hope it helps!

    It does, special this last one.
    Teaching about healing – which made me think about another thing.
    I can’t teach about healing, not right now, I’m learning – so maybe this will happen when I’m old?
    So maybe quintiles and biquintiles only manifest after our maturity?

    Hummmm. Looking forward to your article!
