The term detriment is used in astrology to refer to the sign of the zodiac that is opposite to a planet’s domicile.
When a planet is in the sign that is opposite to its own domicile, it is said to be in its detriment.

In traditional astrology, each planet has its detriment in the following signs:
Mars – Taurus and Libra
Venus – Aries and Scorpio
Mercury – Sagittarius and Pisces
Moon – Capricorn
Sun – Aquarius
