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
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

The foundations of the early life experiences and the nature of the family of
origin play a large role in your life. There is great restlessness and need for
emotional foundations in order to accomplish much else in life. You eventually
figure this out and get what you need as you have great untapped capacity for
emotional integration. With the acquisition of positive habits and home life,
all else is good.
Sun Parallel Mercury
You place great importance on the mental faculty but you may yourself be quite
nervous and temperamental. Fixing the worlds' problems starts with fixing your

details of normal cause and effect in your life and in the lives of others.

your drives helps free and strengthen your energy.
Sun Parallel Jupiter
Over-expanse gets you into trouble but your positive expectations help you gain
many rewards in life. Your cheerful optimistic spirit assists you in bringing

You are not content with an ordinary life. Something in you is always "stirring
the pot" so to speak. You believe that life can be better and you will do

"well enough alone " as your constant fussing can create difficulties. Still,
your originality and spontaneity gives color and accomplishment to your life.
Sun Parallel Neptune
Some basic part of your nature exists beyond the rational. This can give you the
ability to tune in to non-traditional sources of information and stir deep and
unusual feelings within you, but, it can also carry you beyond the normal bound
of correction. This can give your ordinary actions power but also make it
difficult for you to pull back from the edge when something isn't working. Such
is life for someone living on a diet of faith.
Sun Parallel Pluto
You thrive on intensity. There are deep wellsprings of strength and mystery
within you that only seem to gain fulfillment through long protracted struggles.
Much of your fighting in life is inner and unconscious. This can surface as
allegorical reactions to people or things in your environment. You invoke strong

you, to wanting to assist you. When you get personal you get focused and your
persistence can be a real asset.

shyness into care and concern for others you have an ever increasing capacity to
serve. Self honesty during those troubling critical moments can make your life

deep independence embedded in your nature. The urge for freedom may at time
override all other concerns.

hidden realm of life but can find yourself moved by emotions that you neither
understand nor control. There is a deep sensitivity within you to the affairs of
others and this can at times upset your equilibrium.
Moon Parallel Pluto
Your instinctive consciousness is attuned to a vastness of symbols that gives
you a compulsively driven nature. You have a need to replicate patterns that you
saw around you when you were quite young in order to feel comfortable. This can

you will study this feature of yourself and work at freeing yourself from your
past. This gives you a mechanism for self transformation.

that you find out in your quest for knowledge and self expression. At your best,
the criticism inside of you finds an active problem solving approach to that
which you wish to change in life. At worst, you will need to curb your sharp
tongue so as not to stir up trouble where none has to exist. An argumentative
and aggressive quality operates behind the scene with your every thought
process. Your energetic mindset gives you an exploratory and empirical twist to
your learning and communications. Impulsive and argumentative ingredients can
put you at odds with people who also have forceful and active mental natures.

for any project that you undertake. Your optimistic expansive nature will get
you into overly complex situations with ever expanding horizons, but this is
good as this increases your philosophic understanding of every life

always so evident to others but there is a serious cast to the way you appraise
each situation that you find yourself in. Your distrust of others and of life in
general can be problematic. Learn to win in any situation by going slow and
looking at the big picture.

is thorough enough to understand why others think and behave as they do. Change
for its own sake doesn't mean productivity.

judgments. This can give great depth to your understanding, and certainly
heightens your understanding of seemingly impenetrable problems and

life can give you the temperament of a researcher but, it can also imbue you

mental strength but, they can also produce allergic reactions to people,
environments, and ideas. Fascination and repulsion mysteriously blend and
operate simultaneously in your inner life.

interest in the sexual side of life.

either suffer from overindulgence or over-extension.
Venus Parallel Saturn
You have real difficulty in expressing the joy of life, but you do have quite an
ability to hold yourself to a commitment once made. The difficulty here is
learning to accept limitations and restrictions. Once this is accomplished you
easily give of yourself to help others. "Real happiness lies in making others
happy." To learn this is to find your joy.
Venus Parallel Uranus
Your vision of beauty and perfection can have you in a whirl over how and who to
relate to. Relationships represent freedom to you and this can mean that you get

fundamental expression through your physical body, then through relating. Others
can be charmed by you as your awareness of interpersonal dynamics is second

aesthetic nature contribute to your career path.

their relevance to your situation safeguards your expression.

A deep sense of how to serve colors your manner of self assertion. You can

possess but don't often express.

for life if you give yourself the time to step back from your work pattern and
have some detachment from your intense focus.

You have a strong need to express your deepest wishes through what you do in the
