This means that the seventh or the opposite sign from the sign of exaltation of a planet, is the sign of fall or debilitation. 

Notes— There is great difference of opinion amongst the ancient learneds  about the exaltation and debilitation signs of Rahu and Ketu. According to Sarvarth Chintamani the exaltation sign of Rahu is Gemini and his sign of debilitation is Sagittarius. Reverse is the case with Ketu. According to Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra Taurus and Scorpio are respectively the exaltation signs of Rahu and Ketu and the signs opposite to them are their signs of debilitation.

The highest points of exaltation and the lowest points of debilitation of the various planets are as under:

Planet                           Highest points of exaltation
(Deep exaltation)
Lowest point of debilitation
(Deep fall)
The Sun Aries 10th degree Libra 10th degree
The Moon Taurus 3rd degree Scorpio 3rd degree
Mars Capricorn 28th degree Cancer 28th degree
Mercury Virgo 15th degree Pisces 15th degree
Jupiter  Cancer 5th degree Capricorn 5th degree
Venus Pisces 27th degree  Virgo 27th degree
Saturn Libra 20th degree Aries 20th degree

Notes — For example Jupiter at the 5th degree of Cancer will be in deep exaltation. Then he moves downwards from that point and gets into deep debilition when he reaches 5th degree of Capricorn.
