We identify strongly with the signs of the dispositors of our Sun and ascendant. We also, in effect, identify strongly with the elements of those signs.

It tends to get confusing to sort out the dispositors in our birth chart because we must follow the planets back and forth. It’s like playing “Connect the Dots.” The best way is to take it very slow, and have a pen and paper.

The dispositor of the Ascendant is the planet that rules the Ascendant’s sign.  This dispositor and its element are important because we identify strongly with the planet that rules our ascendant.

It takes 2 steps to find the element of the dispositor.

  1. First we must find the dispositor.
  2. Then we take note of the element of the dispositor’s sign.

 

1. Find the Dispositor of the Ascendant

To find the dispositor of the ascendant, see what sign is on the ascendant (the Rising Sign), and then see which planet rules that sign. (See Ruling Planets.)

2. Find the Element of the Dispositor of the Ascendant

Once you know which planet is the dispositor, then take note of which sign that planet is in.  Whatever this sign is, we take note of the element of this sign.

A few examples:

 

Element Key

Fire Earth Air Water
Aries Taurus Gemini Cancer
Leo Virgo Libra Scorpio
Sagittarius Capricorn Aquarius Pisces

 

Now that we are finished with the ascendant, let’s move on to the Sun. We follow the same 2 steps as above: first find the dispositor, then take note of the element of the dispositor’s sign.

 

Find the Dispositor of the Sun

 

To do this, look at the sign of the Sun and see which planet rules that sign.

    I just stumbled across this site. What a treasure! Astrology is not easy to unpack, especially for the beginner. You made it so much easier, and fun. I especially appreciate the layman explanations. The printable charts are super helpful, too! Thank you for all the useful and easy-to-understand information.
