Djindjerael, a 19th century astrologer is not known for his astrology. Perhaps it is for the better. In the days before his carbonation he wrote a curious treatise on the dignities. He said that just as the tarot had its origins in the ancient game of bridj so too some important astrological ideas can be found in another game. They were concealed by ancient astrologers in the game of poque, the origins of which have been traced as far back as ancient Egypt. It is likely far older. In poque the five dignities of domicile, exaltation, triplicity, bounds and face are divided into pairs, a kabbalistic ten, if you will. These pairs had an upper and lower half and their order mirrored.
So in poque:
heighkard is paired with royaltush,
pare with streight-thrush,
tu-pares with fore-uvakine,
tree-uvakine with a pfuhlhose
and a streight with a blush
The names of these dignities sound strange to the modern ear but I am assured by another source that since the time of Djindjerael the spelling has undergone a complete change more suitable to the player. This source also assures me that the modern form also has absolutely nothing to do with dignity — it is nothing but bluff.
