The final Dispositor or Dispositor Tree is essentially the chain of command. There will be one planet, sometimes two planets, that rules the Astrology chart.
If there is a planet in its own sign, for example Saturn in Capricorn, it is the final Dispositor or chief in command.
The way the Dispositor pattern is calculated is determined by the planets in the signs. For example, we will use Sagittarius as the rising sign which is ruled by Jupiter (the natural ruler of Sagittarius); Jupiter is in Aries (in our example) and so Aries natural ruler is Mars. Mars is in Scorpio and Scorpio is naturally ruled by Pluto. Pluto is in the sign of Leo and Leo rules the Sun. The Sun is in Aquarius and Aquarius is ruled by Uranus. Uranus is in the sign of Cancer and Cancer is ruled by the Moon. The Moon is ruled by Scorpio bringing the ruler back to Pluto.
We have not yet touched on Venus which is in Sagittarius ruled by Jupiter and Jupiter is in Aries. We have already followed that route and it came back to Pluto.
We have not touched on Saturn which is in Libra ruled by Venus which is ruled by Sagittarius. This brings us back again to Jupiter and following that same route to Pluto.
We have not touched on Neptune which is ruled by Venus and Venus is in Sagittarius bring us back to Jupiter and ending that cycle to Pluto.
Pluto, therefore, is the common denominator and will be the final Dispositor.
Is there planets in mutual reception (an example of this could be Saturn in Libra and Venus in Capricorn)?
Libra rules Venus and Saturn rules Capricorn, so these two positions are in mutual reception. These two planets will be very significant in the chart and in this individual’s life. Having these two planets in each other’s signs stop the chain of command and makes them both very significant in the chart.
Is there are planets in their own signs (for example, Saturn in Capricorn)? The calculation goes no further and this becomes the final Dispositor.
Sometimes there are two interplanetary links that constantly come to the forefront. These two planets are extremely important in the birth chart and together share the rulership of the chart.
The ruler of the Ascendant is also been called the ruler of the chart and its planetary ruler is of extreme importance as well. For example, Sagittarius as an Ascendant will make Jupiter extremely important in this individual’s life. If Libra were the rising sign, then Venus would be very important to this individual. Remember that the Ascendant sign is how we relate to the world on an outside expression and the individual with Libra rising would then be very social, very pleasing to meet, always seeking harmony and balance in life. They would resonate in this way to those that they meet, especially on first meeting.
The final Dispositor is the planet which other planets depend on and this planet will have a profound effect in the life of the individual. In the example we used at the start of this post, Pluto will play a prominent role in the unfolding of this individual, and Pluto will have assistance from Jupiter. These two planetary links, therefore, provide the needed impetus to propel this individual forward in reaching their life’s objectives and transformations will play a big part in that unfolding.
Follow your chain of command and see which planet or planets affect you in a direct and creative manner. This will be the driving force and motivating factor in your life.
