October 2020 North Node Horoscopes are Here

They’re still having big technical issues over at CGO. We agreed that I should post these here, so that they go out in a timely manner. I’m including the original intro, followed by the individual monthly North Node Horoscopes. At some point, all the fun graphics and the correct month will be up on their site, but until then, here’s the astro weather and the individual scopes.


October 2020 begins with a Full Moon in Aries on the 1st and ends with a potent Blue Moon on Halloween. This second Full Moon of the month is electric as it conjuncts Uranus in Taurus on a day when the veils between worlds are already very thin. Make a wish and let the lightning impulse ground into the Earth. The last Full Moon on Halloween was in 2001. 

On October 9, Mars makes his second exact square to Pluto, bringing volcanic energies to the surface. If you don’t know what you want, this is a good day to lay low. Try to avoid intense situations on the days in and around the 9th. They might boil to the surface anyway, so prepare yourself if you know something’s gurgling beneath the surface. Just don’t go seeking conflict that day unless you really love intensity! 

On October 13, Mercury stations retrograde and remains retrograde until November 3, which is election day in the US. If you vote, you might want to do so well before the 13th. Last time Mercury stationed on election day was in 2000. At least it’s stationing direct this year, but the retrograde action will just add to the intensity of the ongoing Mars squares and oppositions. Miscommunications could turn into screaming matches, so breathe before you shout. Dot your i’s and cross your t’s. Spend time doing the re-’s: review, rework, recharge, release. The New Moon in Libra on the 16th offers a potent chance to reset, as Sun and Moon square Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn while opposing Mars. Big energies! You can use these to enhance intentions of a new beginning.

The Sun remains in Libra until October 22 and then moves into Scorpio, where it will shine light on the darkness. Expect ongoing revelations of Shadowy Underworld things through October, but especially ramping up from the 22nd through Halloween. Life might feel chaotic, but following your North Node guidance opens doors when you need them and when they serve your highest good. For those with clear focus, awareness and intention, chaos brings opportunities.

How this sky weather affects you will vary, depending on your entire natal chart, but your North Node Horoscope transcends monthly sky events. That’s because your North Node reveals what your soul came here to do. By midlife, the soul starts longing and pressing us to live our true purpose. At first, it whispers through intuition. Then it knocks a little louder through “coincidences” and external events. When not heard and honored, the soul’s longing can show up as health crises, marriage or work issues, or wondering “is this all there is?” If you feel a need to reinvent yourself, following North Node guidance helps you do that authentically — for you.

Unlike generic Sun Sign horoscopes, which ignore so many other aspects, following North Node guidance will always lead you in the right direction. Doors open, healing happens, relationships improve, and life gets more magical. This monthly column will help you tap into your personal North Node Mojo. When you start living your North Node purpose, we all win, because you not only begin to light up your own life. You light up the world.           – Laura

You can find your North Node sign here which is often different than your Sun sign. (If you’re right on a cusp, consider both options, or book a reading for more clarity.)


ARIES NORTH NODE: While much of the zodiac gets squared or opposed by Mars moving through Aries, your sign gets energized. You’ve had heavyweight energies creating friction for years, which your Libra South Node really dislikes. Events are realigning to bring new partnerships that honor your need for adventure and self-expression. These are different types of relationships, a different way of being that focuses more on your abilities and your leadership. If you need to work with others, make sure you negotiate enough freedom to make key decisions that work to your advantage. You can experience a win-win, but resist the tendency to give yourself short shrift. The scale needs to be balanced or even tip a bit more in your favor. Difficult tasks will go faster and easier if you approach them as an explorer. Break new ground to solve old issues. Yours is a pioneer sign. Don’t be afraid to charge ahead.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: As the world moves more towards chaos, your task becomes finding new opportunities to love life and anchor beauty into the physical realm. Mental conceptions — how you think about relationships, both personal and with leaders on the world stage — could undergo sharp changes in October 2020. Allow the messages to come in, and work with the new information in order to build a more stable and abundant future for yourself and those you love. With a Scorpio South Node, you already know how to do radical change. Focus less on scorched earth and burning bridges, and more on small, incremental steps, habits and relationships that ground and nourish you. Place is very important to Taurus North Node natives. Clothing, how you express yourself in physical form also gain more importance. Don’t be afraid to befriend rocks, trees and the Natural realm. Part of your conceptual change may make you realize how connected and supported you always are.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: Pay attention to signs and synchronicities, especially messages that arrive from someone with a youthful spirit. While Gemini North Node natives usually do well to wander, this month you’ll want to exert more discipline than usual. Listen to your intuition, and stay on your path for safety. Watch any tendencies towards self-sabotage or flying off the handle in a self-righteous way. Tempers and tensions run high in October 2020. Even if your life’s going well, others around you might feel grief or need support. Your best offering to those in need is good cheer. Be the bright spot in someone’s day. It will lift your spirits, too. Look for and share delightful tidbits. A quick hello, animal or garden photos, or a silly phrase can open more doors than you’d expect. This could be a month of unusual animals sightings. I you see something in waking life or a dream, be sure to look up shamanic and/or spiritual meaning of that animal. The Universe is chatty! Learn to listen.

CANCER NORTH NODE: October 2020 intensifies pressure from heavyweight planets in Capricorn square fiery Mars in Aries. You will need to find a balance between responsibility and empathy. Resist the urge to shut down your heart. Everything flows much better for you when you show a little vulnerability. You won’t look weak. Others will recognize your strength and feel honored to see you with some of your guard down. Release the martyr complex. You don’t need to do everything for everyone. They just need to know you care. Stay grounded this month by taking walks in Nature or just sitting or lying on the grass. If you can find a body of water to commune with, so much the better. At least fill that bathtub and take a good, relaxing soak. Add sea salt if you feel overly sensitive to the energies around you. Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and this month has three major Moon events: the Full Moon on October 1, and New Moon on October 16th, and a rare Blue Moon on Halloween. A Blue Moon is the second Full Moon in a month, and this one conjuncts revolutionary Uranus in Taurus, with supportive energy towards the sign of Cancer. 

LEO NORTH NODE: In October 2020, your skills and accomplishments might receive more accolades than usual. Accept the praise and revel in it. Even if you just feel a healthy dose of pride in work well done, allow the warmth and enhanced self-esteem to permeate your being. Honor your great, big, passionate heart, and know that you, too, deserve big love. This month could bring unusual but practical solutions to problems. Things might seem hasty from the outside looking in, but only you know what kind of meticulous preparation you’ve made behind the scenes. As long as you search your heart and follow it, you will be able to bring ideas into tangible form. This month focuses more on the physical, mental and spiritual realms. You’ve been doing the inner emotional processing either consciously or in your dreams. For now, go where your heart leads, trusting that the emotions will sort themselves in proper time. Learn to expect good things.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: If you can stay grounded and hold your own inner authority you’ll have the world at your feet. Unexpected events hold great benefits for you if you maintain focus and use the mantra, “If not this, then something better.” Resist the urge to zone out, and be careful of any additions to sugar, alcohol or chocolate. You’d do much better reorganizing your closet or cleaning out the inbox. Virgo is an Earth sign, ruled by mental Mercury. You tend to process information more slowly than Mercury ruled Gemini, but when you do process, you do so thoroughly. This month will bring some long cycles to completion. This is not a true loss, but a new beginning and hope for the future. Relocation is “up” — possibly this month, but more likely some ideas about locations will begin to percolate. Write them down but don’t overly romanticize where you are or where you might be headed. Again, stay grounded. Go for walks, anchor yourself in the day to day. Solid spiritual and exercise routines make larger changes easier to implement. You benefit from order and discipline.

LIBRA NORTH NODE: October 2020 brings together the culmination of plans long at work behind the scenes. You may have sensed things needing to shift but not known how they would. The New Moon on October 16 could usher in clarity and a successful if unexpected resolution to complete situations. As peacemakers and natural mediators, Libra North Node natives can bridge gaps and soothe other people’s shock and grief. Your balanced perspective helps others realize how seeming traps are often opportunities in disguise. Your innate courage can help fortify people who faith has wavered. Focus on creativity, fertility and growth. A new world is on offer for those with passion and perspective to claim rewards. Reach for the open door that appears, and resist the temptation to run away like a lone wolf. Part of your roll is to hold open the door to usher others through it. Do not underestimate the importance of this task.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: The Sun enters your North Node sign on October 22 until November 21, and this will bring some much needed light and energy pointing the way towards healing, rejuvenation and rebirth. Scorpio so often dives into the depths and Shadow that it feels good to come up for a breath of sunshine. Focus on experiences and/or relationships that celebrate the best of the old while also honoring the new. Many longer life processes are moving towards completion. A combination of intuition, will power and the raw energy of emotions will lead to creation, growth and success. Focus on wholeness and holism. Pay attention to your dreams this month. You would also benefit from adding soulful rituals into your daily life. Which habits help you honor that deep, beautiful being inside yourself? Meditating with crystals or Gregorian chants empowers you. Do something special on Halloween. It the most powerful day of the year to honor your ancestors and explore generational healing.
SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Pablo Picasso said “Anything you can imagine is real.” You receive guidance not only from intuition and your loving family of guides and angels, but also through your hopes and dreams. These quiet urges will led to real results if you carve out enough time and space to watch and listen. Move beyond the monkey mind into a deeper well of images. Pay attention to messages that arrive through children or childlike people. If you can find a photog of yourself between the age of 6 and 10, look into your eyes. What did “little you” dream of becoming? When you honor your child self, you model that process for others and inspire healing and transmutation. Your life feels best when you operate from faith. Come back to the mantra, “I am loving. I am loved.” Inhale Love and release it to the world through your words and deeds.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: Don’t be afraid to go into hermit mode this month. October 2020 could be rough for empaths: lots of crazy energies out there! Remember to honor your need for boundaries. Only offer help if it’s not too taxing. If you feel stretched too thin, literally back off. Major cosmic forces are in play right now. Destiny level resets in the collective. With such planetary powerhouses still in Capricorn, those with Capricorn North Nodes may feel collective shifts in very personal ways. Continue building new, stronger, more resilient foundations. If something feels shaky, take the time to level out. Use the changing season as inspiration for sloughing off the old. Exfoliate the skin, maybe try an inner cleanse or a social media fast. This is a great month for revamping and review. Minimize distractions so you can make the most of these energies.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: October 2020 brings joy, abundance and a bountiful harvest for those who align with the Cosmic Law: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and love your neighbor as yourself.” Depending how much you tap into the general zeitgeist, you might find your intuition has been spot on … or October 2020 could feel disillusioning as comfortable platitudes give way to deeper truths. Keep an open mind and continue to practice non-attachment. If you find yourself reacting in a reflexive way, take five. Literally, follow your breath in silence for five full minutes. Beware the “of course’s,” those things you take for granted so much that you assume they’re truth with a capital T. For Aquarius North Node natives, strong assertions deserve questions. Ask your higher self to show you what you’re missing. Then pay attention to the answer!

PISCES NORTH NODE: Yours is the most romantic North Node sign, and love is in the air this month. Pay attention to dreams, sings and synchronicities, but resist the urge to over-analyze. Just be. Allow for the possibility of safe passage, as natural currents and hidden guides direct your path. Bring a Higher Love to all you do and are. When you fall in love with life, you emit signals that align you with your destiny. Stay out of your own way. Love is the underlying fabric of the cosmos. Practice honoring the Divine in others and within yourself.. Feel yourself as part and partner of the Dance. Instead of worrying, adopt the mantra: “If not this, then something better.” Ask for help recognizing and receiving the blessings and healing freely offered in October 2020. And always.

    “Of course” flew out the window for me. Can’t take anything for granted. Really reinforces living in the now and capturing the beauty when it shows up in the moment. “Reality” is so fluid, anything can happen/change in a heartbeat.

    It’s very uncomfortable, not going to lie. My Taurus Moon is agitated. But… rather learn to surf/pivot than sink to the bottom. 🏄‍♀️
