About Declinations
What we normally think of as ASTROLOGY is the calculation of the longitudinal positions and aspects of the planets (conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, oppositions, and all the minor aspects). But not only does the Earth revolve around the Sun, the Earth has an axis and is tilted, giving us night&day and seasons. Calculating the relationship of the Sun to the Earth's tilt gives us DECLINATIONS, or the latitudinal positions of the planets. These can be more informative about life on planet Earth, and becoming more aware of the declinations, both in your chart and currently occurring, can be very enlightening; declinations often reveal themes and events that the "regular" aspects do not.

Looking at Declinations, they go from 0 degrees (Equator) to 23.26 degrees, the height of the Sun (North is Tropic of Cancer, South is Tropic of Capricorn). At both Vernal and Spring Equinox, the SUN is at 0 Declination, at Winter Solstice, the Sun is at 23 degrees 26 minutes South, or conjunct the Tropic of Capricorn. At Summer Solstice, the Sun is at 23 degrees 26 minutes North, or conjunct the Tropic of Cancer. The strongest points in Declination are around 0 degrees and 23 degrees 26 minutes, the highest point the Sun reaches. Many planets, including the Moon, can travel above 23 deg 26', which is called out-of-bounds (OOB). Planets that go OOB function like wild cards, able to do great good or harm, depending on many factors.
