Planets and Vibratory Levels

Each of us vibrates at twelve specific levels and one overall level according to the planetary placements in our chart.

The specific criteria by which to measure a planet's level of purity or vibration are: dignity, polarity, element, mode, and gender.

Planets in signs of their own element(especially those in their home sign or dignity), followed by planets in their opposing element(especially those in the sign opposite their dignity) give the purest and highest-vibrating levels.

Planets in signs semi-sextile, quincunx, and especially in square to their dignity, give the most impurity or lowest vibrations.

Overall Chart Vibration

Make a list of your twelve planetary placements(ten if you don't know your Ascendant or Midheaven), and add up the ones that fall under rows 1 and 2 in the Specific Planetary Vibration table.

If, for example you have a total of 6 planetary placements that fall in either rows 1 or 2, then 6 is your overall vibratory level. Most people average a vibratory level 5 to 7(out of 12), or 5 to 6(out of 10) and are most compatible with others of a similar level.

A vibration level of 3 or less is very low and indicates someone with a very negative or problematic nature. Most of us vibrate in the 4 to 8 range and are a roughly even mix of vices and virtues. A vibration level of 9 or higher is very high and indicates someone with very high standards, ideals, or capacities.

We all have our own particular frequency or vibration level and maintain or control it through our daily needs and activities. Our environment can also play an important role. The lower your level, for example, the more you are likely to indulge in vibration-lowering activities, such as eating, drinking, smoking, and sex. You will also be more likely drawn to heavily populated environments where pollution and negativity are prevalent. The higher your levels, the less you are likely to indulge in such activities or frequent such environments, and the better chances you have of pursuing more "spiritual" or idealistic goals. Becoming a vegetarian or fruitarian, for example, often requires a high-vibrating chart to begin with.

Also, children or young people generally vibrate higher than older people because of the tendency to degenerate with time. Women, in particular, vibrate on a slightly higher level than men -which is why their voices are higher, and their overall sensitivity and longetivity greater.
