Foreign, alien. Said of a planet posited in a sign where it possesses no essential dignity; where it is neither dignified nor debilitated and appears to operate almost independently of other planets.

It is employed in Horary Astrology where it is usually reckoned as a debility. In a question of a theft, a peregrine planet at an angle or in the second house is the thief. However, no planet is considered to be peregrine if it is in mutual reception with another. Has come into more modern usage referring to a planet which is unaspected.
