Picking No-fuss Systems Of [astrology]
Some Guideline Ideas For Fundamental Issues In
If we say that “Mars is at 28 degrees Capricorn,” that only tells us part of the story. That’s where Mars is at in terms of celestial longitude, but the planets also move up and down across the ecliptic while traveling through the Zodiac. During the course of its apparent travel around the sky, the Sun moves back and forth between about 23 and a half degrees North of the Celestial Equator (which is the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere ) and about 23 and a half degrees South, (which is the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere). Any planet going further North or South of that is considered to be “out of bounds.” As I write this, Mars is at 26 S 17 declination… far to the South in the Plane of the Ecliptic. Therefore, Mars is out of bounds. Planets that are out of bounds can produce erratic and unusual results. Mercury out of bounds in the birth chart, for example, can make a person an unusual and powerful communicator, or can make for erratic thinking, or both. Mars is now retrograde, but goes direct on Monday. At that time it will still be in Capricorn, which is where Mars is exalted. Keep in mind that a planet that is stationary and going direct is particularly powerful.
