Thelemic Codes and Essential Dignities

Those of you who have read the writings of Aleister Crowley, Muriel Hasbrouck, and Raven Kaldera on the correspondences between tarot and planetary essential dignities will appreciate this concept I’ve developed.

In Thelemic Astrology a planet’s accidental dignity by house placement is virtually the same as its essential–or “face”–dignity by sign. For example, natal Jupiter in Gemini–“Shortened Force”, or “Interference”–is fundamentally similar to natal Jupiter in the 3rd house.

The second part of this theory, leading logically from the first, is that the characteristics of the “signs” so familiar in pop astrology are derived from the houses to which they correspond. Thus, for example, the descriptive characteristics of ‘Cancer’ are derived from the meanings and implications of the IVth house.
