Out of Bound Planets: Mercury, Venus and Mars

We'll explore the seldom-used technique of declination to learn how the out of bounds signature alters our understanding of Mercury, Venus and Mars. Each of these planets can be "out of bounds," meaning that their declination is greater than that set by the Sun. Metaphorically, these planets operate "outside the Sun's jurisdiction." Many eye-opening chart examples will demonstrate how the out of bounds signature can dramatically enhance basic delineation.

Venus Out of Bounds

In this lively discussion, Tony explores the little-used technique of declination to learn how the out of bounds signature alters our 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. We’ll use many eye-opening chart examples to modify our understanding of a planet’s behavior using this powerful easy-to-use technique.

Out of Bound Planets: Mercury, Venus and Mars

Intro to Out of Bounds Inner Planets
In this lecture, you'll discover a powerful and easy way to incorporate declination into your chart analysis as we explore the always engaging topic of out of bounds planets. We'll focus here on the inner planets - Mercury, Venus and Mars, with a series of dynamic chart examples that will show you just how dramatically the out of bounds signature can modify the behavior of a planet. Out of bounds planets operate beyond the Sun’s jurisdiction, thus coloring their behavior. Metaphors like "outside the box" and "coloring outside the lines" work well to begin to understand this planetary signature, but that's just scratching the surface. Out of bounds stories are dramatic and engaging, so come on out and enjoy a fun lecture about a subject that promises to get you excited about this overlooked technique.

Mercury, Venus and Mars Out of Bounds Explored
In this workshop we'll expand on the morning lecture, delving much deeper into the many ways out of bounds planets can express in the birth chart. When an inner planet is out of bounds, it can express in a multitude of ways that we can only get a real sense of by looking at several charts. We'll look at many of these qualities of expression in detail, with a focus on the high and the low potentials inherent in each. You'll discover why Venus out of bounds folks can have a hard time setting limits, see examples of Mars out of bounds folks "going rogue," and why Mercury out of bounds people can so easily give preference to their head over their heart.

The afternoon will be filled with chart examples and stories. Bring your own charts. We'll have plenty of time to find out if you have an out of bounds planet, and share your own out of bounds stories if you'd like.

Challenging Mars

UK Astrology Student Conference 2017Tony will present a lecture on Mars for the 2017 Astrology Student Conference. Mars is often equated with anger and aggression, but there’s a great deal more to the planet of drive and initiative. In this talk, Tony will challenge typical portrayals of the red planet, consider when it is "out of bounds" and in aspect to Saturn or Neptune, and suggest ways of working with these complex energies so that we may feel more decisive and empowered.
