What are OUT OF BOUNDS PLANETS ?
As it sounds, if you were born with the Moon or other planets out-of-bounds; meaning they are 23 degrees 28 minutes North or South of the celestial equator,the Earths equator extended into space, then you are a loose cannon, unbounded, a free spirit, definitely different from most people, a genius or an outlaw. Astrologers have been researching this information and using it to help define personality characteristics more recently. The Sun can never be out-of-bounds, explained below.
PEOPLE IN THE NEWS WITH O.O.B. PLANETS
The pilot ANDREAS LUBITZ who apparently crashed GERMANWINGS FLIGHT 9525
Has a number of OOB planets; his MERCURY -planet of communications -independent thinker, and his URANUS- individualistic, rebel, independent, chaotic, freedom. His SUN is very close the most Southerly declination at 23 degrees 22 minutes 55 seconds. A mere 6 minutes away from the boundary-walks the line. I’ll wrote a bit about that later.
O.O B. explained
The Sun travels annually over a wide band of the celestial equator which ranges from 23 degrees 28 minutes north to 23 degrees 28 minutes south. This is called declination which is a form of latitude rather than longitude. The Sun touches the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn- the Solstice points and the Sun crosses the celestial equator twice a year at the Equinox points. This is what creates the seasons. The Sun can never go past these degrees unless there was a pole shift, but the Moon and some of the planets can travel out of boundaries, hence the term.
The Moon will go O.O.B. most frequently and reaches a maximum of nearly 29 degrees when the North Node is at 0 degrees Aries every 18.6 years related to eclipse cycles of course.
The MOON has peak years when it is out-of-bounds in the past. 1913, 1931-32, 1950, 1969, 1987-88, 2006 and upcoming in 2024-25. A lot of social upheavals happened during these years.
Saturn and Neptune never travel out-of-bounds and Jupiter only occasionally by a tiny amount.
Generally speaking, and this applies to all planets, those in northern declinations are more outwards bound in effect while southern declinations are inwards and have a more personal effect. Two planets situated at the same degree of declination, both in the north or both in the south, are said to be in parallel, a parallel having a force like a conjunction. These two planets may be in different zodiac signs though.
I have just discovered that my Natal MOON, Mercury and Uranus are OUT OF BOUNDS which instantly clicked for me a whole bunch of information about the why and how I function. I think it is vitally important.
DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR O.O.B planets are?
You can look this up using an astrology program such as Astro.com after you put up a chart- all this is free- where it says additional tables click that and the declinations for all the planets and asteroids or whatever you input are clearly shown.
MOON OOB peeps
Moon OOB peeps are likely to have very accurate intuitions, a deep-seated need for freedom, a strong level of self-understanding. It is easy for them to freely express their own individual feelings, they see and sense things deeply as if they had x-ray vision.
Born with Mercury OOB you will never stop talking. They do have very important ideas and things to say. Its seems double Uranian like to me. Thinking and communicating out of the box.
Born with VENUS OOB makes one an over the rainbow romantic- Judy Garland had it. Clang Clang Clang went the trolley.
This placement delivers a very originally creative artistic person, a genius. This aspect can also bring very strong likes and dislikes. Homosexuality can also be linked. Many people with OOB Venus’s have multiple marriages. Or they can be intentionally single. Huge age gaps between lovers is another signpost.
OOB VENUS women artists. BJORK! Nico of Velvet Underground, sexy singer Josephine Baker, diva Maria Callas, Helen Reddy- I Am WOMAN singer.
Also composer Erik Satie, artist Robert Mapplethorpe, songwriter Noel Coward, Liberace, Jean Genet and poet Ezra Pound.
This indicates deviants, criminals, outlaws, reckless, danger seekers, rebels.
OOB PLANET WATCH!
The next planet to travel O.O.B. is VENUS. Everything that is Venus related- RELATIONSHIPS, MONEY, Balance, art will go wonky and unpredictable.
VENUS will begin travelling O.O.B on April 18th at 8:53:04 am (EDT) to June 1st at 6:30:59 pm
MERCURY will be O.O.B. from May 3rd at 8:16:30 pm (EDT) to May 19th at 12:45:25 am
Mercury will also be O.O.B. from November 27th at 8:59:09 pm (EST) to December 24th at 11:14:55 pm (EST)
MARS will be O.O.B. June 6th at 7:35:14 pm (EDT) to July 16th at 10:10:46 pm- circle with RED.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
PLEASE SHARE WIDELY
MOON is still in Cancer its home today. Moon squares Sun, trines Neptune-very idealistic, opposes Pluto, squares Uranus.
