In this webinar, Adam will explore the ancient, Hellenistic roots of the planetary dignities. Contrary to what some people think, planetary dignities aren't just telling us about the inherent "power" of a planet, but more precisely planetary dignities provide us with profound insight into the entire community of planetary relationships and topics contained in the birth chart. 

After we explore the esoteric doctrines of planetary rulerships and detriments, exaltations and falls, we will then turn our attention to a series of case studies that demonstrate the beauty and eloquence of the planetary dignities. Finally, drawing from our chart demonstrations, we will explore some very basic ways that planetary dignities can be immediately put to use in your own astrological practice.
