The signs act as homes or residences for the planets. Based on the sign and degree it occupies, a planet is bestowed with or denied certain gifts, powers, or resources. This is essential dignity, a measure of the strength or weakness of a planet. Essential dignity is one of the most important techniques in traditional natal astrology.

The table of essential dignities is used to calculate the essential dignity score of a planet. Satya Astrology uses the Egyptian system of bounds and the Hindu decan rulers.
