Declinations: Interpretations for the Sun through Jupiter in Parallel aspect
There is another dimension to your astrology chart. This has to do with planets being the same distance from the celestial equator. When both planets are on the same side of this plane there are called parallel. When the planets are the same distance but on opposite sides of the celestial equator they are referred to as being contra-parallel. Both of these aspects activate your ability to organize and reorganize some aspect of your life, depending on the planets and luminaries involved. The following interpretations are from the In Depth Profile report, which interprets all declinations found in the natal chart, including the outer planets and the Ascendant and Midheaven, and also including the contra-parallel aspect.
As with all “cookbook” interpretations, there are a variety of ways these aspects can manifest themselves. Different authors interpret specific aspects differently. As well, all aspects should be read within the context of the natal chart. For this reason, the interpretations should be used as a starting point only.
