riddle 9

It’s not who I am
but my condition
that is here the theme.

Those that I welcome
are not in my esteem.

It is their weakness
I savour.
With me they meet no favour,
for they have lost their Eden
and cannot climb away.

What am I? Tell me. Say.

  1. Hi Thomas,
    The planetary condition of being in fall? It is the opposite of exaltation the planets’ position before The Fall.
    love, MB

  2. Ah, I *was* close giving detriment as the answer!
    Now for the clues:

    – condition: not a planet, sign, house, … but a quality of functioning.
    – a planet despises that planet which it receives in its fall.
    – a planet in its fall shows it’s ugly side or weakness.
    – no favour: no essential dignity.
    – Eden: with the Fall, Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden.
    – climb away ? No clue here. That ‘s for Marybeth!
