Although not an actual planet, the Moon is often called a planet for convenience. It represents our feelings, intuition, needs, nurturing, family, ancestry, home and the past.

The Moon never goes retrograde.

Declination

The Moon swings north and south during one month. At its maximum declination during that time, it is sometimes capable of going Out of Bounds (its declination is greater than 23° 26' or 23:26. There is a greater declination cycle that lasts about 18-19 years. During that time it spends about 9 years when it is able to go OOB, and its maximum declination takes it Out of Bounds. Then it spends another 9 years when its maximum declination does not extend beyond the bounds and it remains In-Bounds. When it is able to go OOB, its maximum declination takes it Out of Bounds.
