Most astrology students have a cursory familiarity with the phrasing of rulership, exaltation, fall, and triplicity, but fewer know what these dignities mean and why.
Reynolds will examine the roots of “Essential Dignities” for the 7 traditional planets and how astrologers can use each one of five traditional dignities to reveal powerful information about clients, events, and questions.
He’ll explain how the modern planets articulate a whole new dimension of understanding essential dignities, offering examples and case histories from his own files.

I once hated astrology more than any other “occult” studies. At 12 years old, when I was a fundamentalist Baptist minister, I used religion to avoid astrology’s lessons. Later, at 23 years old and an atheist academic, I realized I mostly disliked astrology because I didn’t know what it all meant. I was born on the “cusp” of two signs and didn’t know which one I was. So, I went to an astrologer. His uncanny insights into my life went beyond the pale of guesswork. He did this all by looking at mysterious “codes” and symbols that were completely foreign to me at the time. Convinced it was all a trick, I spent 10 years doing charts and studying astrology myself. As I decoded more astrology, I learned so much more about myself, our world, and the people around me. Yet, I still explored many different worlds of astrology--psychological, esoteric, evolutionary, Vedic, Uranian, and Western classical--to master what’s most effective, realistic, and accurate for my clients, students, and myself. In the process, I’ve come to grasp how the practical fuses with the spiritual, how the tedious also holds the transcendent. Now, over 28 years after my first visit to an astrologer, my deepest love and life centers around astrology. I consult, write, and teach astrology full-time. I also serve on a few astrology organizational boards, and I’m an entrepreneur who helps others build their businesses as mind-body-spirit practitioners. My life has taught me to watch what you hate.
