The North and South Nodes in our Astrological Natal Charts are neither planets, asteroids, comets nor stars. The “True” and “Mean” Nodes are calculated axis points from when the Moon’s orbit crosses the Earths orbits around the Sun. It is what is known as the ecliptical plane and your North Node can be approx. between 45 and 90 degrees away from your Moon.

They are the most humbling of placements to understand, integrate and trancend in one’s Natal Chart, after Chiron of course, in my opinion.

The South Node placement – Sign, House - indicates your Karma, your lessons and wisdom, brought forward with you on a Soul level into this incarnation.

However, our South Node placements are also indicative of where we may feel like “we know it all,” as on a Soul level you feel you have already “been there and done that.” It can be a rigidity in our ways of thinking, and wounding of many kinds, especially emotionally, that are brought forward too.

Understanding of your South Node will shed light onto many of your subconscious thought processes, behaviours, most notably where and how you hold yourself back and or self-sabotage. It’s not all bad news though, as we have a way out of this looping cycle. Which is directly opposite our South Node. The North Node.

The North Node placement – Sign, House – indicates your Dharma, the lessons and wisdom we must adopt and integrate into our lives this incarnation in order to live a fulfilled life. Much of which requires we heal ourselves of that which we have never experience in this incarnation, as it has come with us from our South Node placement.

Which I feel there needs to be far more emphasis on in mainstream Astrology. As what is the point of trying to open a locked door, without a key? With the opportunity for innerstanding and the growth our South Node offers, I feel it makes it a little easier to discern which battles require to be fought, and which need no attendance at all.

The South Node in Sagittarius transit.

Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter and represented by the Temperance card in the Major Arcana RWT*. Traditionally indicative of teaching, travel, balancing not just the emotional reciprocity, represented by the water flowing between the two gold chalice. The reciprocity of the Fire and Earth elements, as represented by the orange triangle within the white square on front of the Angel’s gown. Showing us it is time to find a balance between the spiritual and physical realms.

This South Node transit will be showing us where we restrict ourselves, not just physically, also emotionally, philosophically, and spiritually. Whether you are religious, spiritual or not.

Our beliefs, knowledge and understanding will be tested. As too will our trust and faith, in yourself, and in a higher power too. Ways in which we can traverse the next 18 months on a personal level will all depend on how present and mindful you commit to yourself to be.

Now is not the time to marry your truths you once believed. Now is the time to look to the macro vista, view all of which you are presented with a discerning eye and ear. Give yourself permission to see others perspectives without feeling the need to take them on, or compete and validate your own, if they differ.

Now is the time to truly listen and hear what is actually being said to you, and what is not. It may help during this time to intentionally listen or read. By which I mean, don’t cut people short of their speaking, just because your mind has jumped and filled in the blanks of your own accord. That is making assumptions and will not bode well for any involved in this cosmic weather we are heading into.

Especially as up to 27th November 2020, the North Node will be transiting the third decan of Gemini ruled by the Sun. So there may be surprising bursts of connecting over the phone and video chats, even more than you have been already these past months. As the energy of the Sun and Mercury together, gives me a vision of the three of cups just as I am writing this. And a feeling of frivolity, joy, laugher, dancing and celebration, with those you care about most. Almost child like glee.

The North Node in Gemini transit. Gemini is ruled by Mercury and is represented by The Lovers card in the Major Arcana RWT*. Traditionally indicative of not only a union between two lovers, it can also represent union with Spirit, agreements between people – friendships, romantic and business.

There is also the reminder of now is the time to make a decision between two paths, or a past and present way of living and being, toward something far more fulfilling, once you decide to take that first step.

This North Node transit will have all contracts, agreements, bindings, vows, and connections on the table and up for review and discussion. Across all aspects, across all realities. Within ourselves on an individual personal level, within relationships (romantic or non), and globally when it comes to trade terms, laws, legislations - within local and global governmental bodies and corporations – really pushing us to see a new higher perspective in order to successfully move forward. And move forward in the Highest good of all.

This transit will be asking us all as a collective humanity to release the shadow of the “egoic-mind” of always needing to be “right” and have other people believe our truth. It is encouraging all to step back and be open to receiving fresh new view-points that when genuinely taken on board and considered, may just reveal an unseen beneficial path of least resistance for all parties involved. And on a global level, reveal a solution that will serve humanity and society.
