Sure. Here it is:

Imagine the essential dignities of a planet as the way an actor can relate to acting.

A planet in domicile is like a skilled and talented actor you can rely on to give their best in any role. For them, acting is both professionally and personally rewarding. 

An exalted planet is like a celebrated movie star. Sometimes they are too successful and too comfortable in a certain role: they are always the romantic hero or the femme fatale. They can afford to ignore challenges, but then they will get stuck in the same old (though rewarding) routine.

A planet in detriment is an unpredictable actor. Sometimes they are great and sometimes they are not. Even though they can be very talented, they are either not very discerning when it comes to roles or they have personal issues that can interfere with their performance. You never know what to expect from them.

A planet in fall is an actor who becomes an artist because they are wounded or it is their art that harms them somehow. One way or another, their success comes at great personal cost.

(In a natal chart, nothing stands on its own: always consider the shape of the chart, a planet's placement, the aspects it receives, the state of its ruler, and so on...)

Yeah, right. This is interesting bcos when you read about dignities, they say stuff like an exalted planet is an honored guest and a fallen planet is a dishonored guest... it sounds very oldschool and it doesn't blend with the idea that planets are energies...

thx
