Peregrine

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

A peregrine (foreign) planet is one so situated as to be neither dignified nor exalted, and simultaneously not in aspect with any other planet. A planet so situated in a natal chart indicates a part of the psyche that seems to operate independently from the rest of the native’s personality, and that the native must therefore make a special effort to integrate. The term is seldom used today, except in horary astrology.
