In astrology, a celestial body is said to be in detriment, or exile, when it is posited in the zodiac sign opposite the sign it rules (over which it has domicile). When a celestial body is in detriment it is said to be not comfortable in that sign and to tend to operate with the least strength.
The sign detriments are as follows:
- Signs of detriment for the non-visible planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are not firmly established or as widely applied as those of the seven classical planets.
