Hi everyone!

I want to talk about depositors. I´m currently on a beginner course and have just learnt about them.

My understanding is that they can reinforce a planet either by amplification or mitigation of the initial planet´s dignity or debility. Please correct me if I´m wrong!

My Sun is at 0 degrees Taurus (peregrine), my Venus is 14 degrees Gemini (little bit of dignity by term), and my Mercury is 19 degrees Taurus (peregrine), creating a mutual deposition between Venus and Mercury.

It doesn´t seem to have much reinforcement!

My question is how would you interpret something like that, where there´s no strong dignity even in the depositors?

Only one planet at the end of a locomotive pattern is really strong that could have some effect on your mutual reception.
Interactions can dilute planets, especially Neptune which is the higher octave of :154:.
:199:erschel being on the eastern-side of your chart is an important dispositor!

There is strong dignity in your exalted Sun and Moon! ;)

Chart ruler in the 5th, you must also be a very creative person.. but Saturn and Ketu could be negating that. Rahu in the 11th does well.

I have looked into this a bit but I´m not sure if I know my final dispositer. Also is there a first depositor? I also read something about looking at the chart patterns and seeing where the first and last planet are located

You have two planets in dignity, or the sign they rule - Mars in Aries and Uranus in Aquarius.

You have Mercury and Venus in mutual reception. Here are your dispositor "trees":

Pluto - Jupiter/Neptune - Saturn - Mars
Sun-Venus-Mercury-Venus-Mercury, etc.
Moon-Venus-Mercury, etc.

Mars will have influence over Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto.
Saturn will have influence over Jupiter/Neptune and Pluto.
Venus-Mercury in mutual reception will have influence over Sun and Moon.
Uranus stands alone.

I don´t believe that it is important for Mercury and Venus to be in dignity. They will still have an influence. They can still function in an effective way, even if not in dignity or exaltation. This is old thinking that a planet must be in a sign that makes it stronger to be good or effective. Venus in Gemini can have the effect of stabilizing or focusing Gemini thinking and anchoring it in a project, for instance. You just have to see how all the planets function in a chart.

Not everyone has a final dispositor - one planet that has influence over all the planets through dispositorship.

Dispositorship is only determined by the planetary rulers of the sign (dignity). We don´t use exaltations.
