Out of Bound Planets: Mercury, Venus and Mars

Join us for a fun lecture exploring the little-used topic of declination. Learn how the out of bounds signature can dramatically alter your understanding of Mercury, Venus and Mars. Each of these planets can be “out of bounds,” which means they have a declination that is beyond that set by the Sun. Out of bounds planets operate beyond the Sun’s jurisdiction, thus coloring their behavior.

Unlike many declination lectures, this one won’t get bogged down in technical details, but will instead focus on practical application in chart work. Tony will share many eye-opening chart examples that will leave you with a feel for the out of bounds signature and how to start applying it in your chart analysis.
