Declinations Ephemeris 2019-2025
We have a Declinations Ephemeris covering the years 1930-2025, and that can be found here: Declinations Ephemeris, in pdf format, and with 5-day intervals. The ephemeris shows declinations for the Sun through Pluto, including Chiron and excluding the Moon.
In the chart, a negative value represents South and a positive value represents North. In other words, if Mercury is shown as +23 degrees and 21 minutes, the declination for that date is 23 N 21.
What Is Declination?
Planets travel in a 360° circle around the Sun, but they do not constantly stay at the same latitude. In fact, they are always moving up or down. These “ups and downs” are measured as the distance between a planet’s current position and the earth’s equator (as projected into the sky). This measurement is known as declination.
When you see planets that are at the same degree and both are either North or South, they are said to be Parallel. If they are at the same degree but one is North and the other is South, that is called a Contra Parallel.
These aspects are similar to the conjunction and the opposition aspect.
Parallels exist when there is a conjunction. The meaning will be determined by the planets involved and the houses and signs that they are in. But when two planets are conjunct and parallel, that means they share the same celestial latitude as well as degree.
Contra-Parallel exist when there is an opposition; like the Parallel, it will depend on the planets and their house positions. When two planets are opposed and parallel, that means they share the same celestial latitude, as well as opposing degrees.
There is a special time when the planet is at Zero. This is when they are neither up or down from the celestial equator. This is a time when the planet is going to be strong and the principles of that planet will be emphasized.
