Likewise Saturn, in this chart, is physically located at 16 Sagittarius. If you look at the sky at this point in time, that is where he'll be. Since each decan/face is 10 degrees, Saturn is in the second decan of Sagittarius (10 to 20 Sag). The decan lord of the second decan of Sagittarius is always the Moon, no matter where the Moon is in the chart.

The decans are 10 degree divisions of *signs*, and their lords are fixed. any planet in any given decan always has the same lord. One doesn't change the degrees of the planet first, at least for dignity calculations.

I am not sure if you are doing some advanced astrological technique, in which case I have to plead ignorance.
I understand you now....thanks.

Your correct moon is in saturn's face and so is saturn in moons face, so yes there is mutual reception here by face.

Ive been using the significators own as the moon is 8 degrees, then looking at dignities ive been looking at moon in sagittarius at 8 degrees, which then makes the moon have no dignity here which is why i said she was peregrine. When i should have been looking at the moon in sagittarius at 16 degrees.

Totally understand where ive been going wrong with this now....thanks for explaining to me.
