Elevated planets

Hi all! Can anyone explain which planet should I consider as most elevated?

My confusion comes from the fact that my MC is in 7 degrees Aries and my sun is 18 degrees Aries - my sun is in the 10th house with Placidus and 9th with equals. My highest in degree planet is 27 degrees Mercury in Pisces in the 9th house. I also have Taurus venus in the 10th house.

So how should I determine which planet is most elevated, is it by sign or degree? 

Forgot to mention that only Mercury makes an aspect with MC.

Hi there eleonora,

I think the most elevated planet in your chart is your Sun. Visually it seems like that to me but I could be wrong.

I don't think it matters what house it falls, the one thats closest in degree to the midheaven is the most elevated... But if both are pretty close you can look at both.

It sounds like Sun is most elevated but Venus in Taurus not far behind.

In that case shouldn’t it be Mercury in terms of being closest by degree. Only one degree closer than the sun, really, but that definitely makes it closer than Venus. Or I’m I mistaken?

No you're right, I didn't pay attention to the degree of Mercury but it's closer. So it would be Mercury&Sun. I don't know if the Sun gets an advantage because it's in the same sign as the Mc though ?.

Like strawb. I didn't pay attention to the degree of Mercury. It is one degree closer to the MC so that's a really good candidate for the most elevated planet.
