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 SunAries 10th degreeLibra 10th degree
The MoonTaurus 3rd degreeScorpio 3rd degree
MarsCapricorn 28th degreeCancer 28th degree
MercuryVirgo 15th degreePisces 15th degree
Jupiter Cancer 5th degreeCapricorn 5th degree
VenusPisces 27th degree Virgo 27th degree
SaturnLibra 20th degreeAries 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.
