Planets out of bounds updated for 2020.

Out of Bounds (OOB) planets have a declination greater than 23 degrees 27’. It means “outside of the boundary of the ecliptic” or the path of the earth’s orbit around the sun. Because of the tilt of the earth’s axis, the sun appears to stay within 23 degrees 27’ north of the equator and 23 degrees 27’ south of the equator. Anything “outside” of that is considered “Out-of-bounds”.

These planets out of bounds act in more EXTREME ways. They are on the edge—beyond the boundary because their energy is excessive and zealous in nature. It is really “out there”.

Out of Bounds in the Natal Chart

Kim's OOB Natal Planets

 

Above are my OOB major planets. You can see Mercury, Venus and Mars are all OOB with Mercury and Venus Parallel of declination (almost exact) and Mercury and Mars Contra-Parallel of declination. Read more about declinations here, but know, the connections LINK them together in their 'out-there-ness'. Right away, think unconventional thoughts. It can be artistic, but can it be trained? Not easily, at least, not in the classical sense. Not inside the bounds.
Do you have a natal planet OOB? Let's discuss start a post on the forum.

Out of Bounds by Transit

When an OOB planet transits a sensitive point in your chart, you can be sure it will wake up in wild and zany ways. Check your natal chart to see where the transiting degrees of the zodiac fall. Any planets there? Angles? If so, you want to pre-pave the best ever expansion you can imagine.
