Moon out of bounds and 9/11

leave a comment »

When the Moon is out of bounds (OOBs) in a natal or birth chart and is the only OOBs planet, there is a basic insecurity in the psyche and we may say insufficient mothering or a lack of a good mother-child relationship.

If there are other natal planets OOBs in the chart, the situation is easier for the person to grapple with as they mature.

Is there a schedule for times when the Moon is out of bounds of the earthly plane?

Yes – for a ten-year period, the Moon is OOBs for a few days every two weeks; then there are no Lunar OOBs times for nine years!

Today is June 11, 2009 and we are smack dab within a Lunar out-of-bounds period stretching from September 2001 to March 2011 but soon will be into the nine-year period.

If you’d prefer a more technical explanation check out Lunar Living.

And I suspect you noticed the current period began in Sept 2001 – so was the Moon OOBs for the attacks of 9/11?

That morning, Luna was not OOBs but by suppertime (about 6:30 pm eastern time), the Moon was at +23 degr 26 mins, the limit of declination for calling “out of bounds.”

That day I was working in town seeing clients and was amazed after watching CNN all morning that everyone who came to see me on 9/11/01 had no idea that the attacks had occurred…I personally informed several people that day including my work colleagues.

My thought is that extreme emotional insecurity started as most people began arriving home and found out about the morning’s mayhem, as many had been unaware of it during the day.

It was then that the emotional impact really hit all of the country (and most of the world) as the Moon floated out of bounds and met by zodiacal degree with the North Node (public contact), both conjunct America’s natal Venus 3Can+ (money; values; relationships.)

And for the attacks on the Twin Towers, the Moon was at 28Gem03…the Sabian Symbol for ’28Gemini’ is “A Man Declares Bankruptcy”…and I think we now see where that has led so many of us individually and corporately.

What do you think?

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
