Full Moon in Pisces ~ September 10, 2022

My September 2022 Forecast shares:

September 10 Full Moon in Pisces, 5:59 a.m. Eastern US time. This Full Moon loosely conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, bringing extra empathy and intuition to an already highly charged day. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is “IN A GIGANTIC TENT, VILLAGERS WITNESS A SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE.” Whether religious, political or some form of “bread and circuses,” Neptune’s presence adds massive Glamour to the leader of this spectacle. It will be easy to get carried away by sweeping emotions and inspiration. Something about this Full Moon dazzles the public in dramatic ways.

This Full Moon occurs just hours after Mercury stations retrograde in Libra. My Forecast notes:

September 9 Mercury stations retrograde in Libra. Mercury will remain retrograde until October 2, moving through Libra and back into Virgo. This particular Mercury Rx asks us to re-evaluate legal matters, areas of imbalance, injustice, and re-analyze the details. Complex situations call for more than a cursory look, and we may find that things are not as they appeared. As with any Mercury Rx, dot your i’s and cross your t’s. Closely examine or postpone binding contracts. Remember, time moves in cycles. Previous Mercury Rx periods could return as relevant: January 14-February 3, 2022; May 10-June 3, 2022; even as far back as October 14-November 3, 2020.

The combination of Mercury stationing retrograde and a Full Moon in Pisces conjunct ruler Neptune increases the odds of confusion and delusion. Alternatively, it could shine Divine Light on prior times of confusion or delusion. Full Moon cycles play out over the next month, and Mercury remains retrograde for much of this time.

Mercury Rx gets a bad rap, but these periods do facilitate anything that begins with re-. Reflection, revision, re-examination, review, redo. Real revelations will occur during this time period, but their relevance might not seem obvious until Mercury goes direct on October 2 or until the next Full Moon in Aries on October 9. If some grand spectacle appears, take it with a grain of salt and Sun-in-Virgo skepticism. It’s OK to question reality! Especially the miasma that passes for “truth” and “facts” in a brainwashed, zombified, and addicted world.

Tune into the higher octave of Pisces: unconditional compassion, faith, beauty, healing, and a higher perspective far beyond the realm of ego. This is a great time to work on creative projects, which will benefit from ongoing revision and soaring inspiration. Music and theater receive extra oomph from that “spectacular performance” energy. It’s also a good time to explore principles of Reiki, Aikido, Lao-Tzu, Sun Tzu, and Wu Wei.

Pay special attention to any dreams you have during this time. Pisces and Neptune can trigger psychic downloads. Watch for symbolism in waking life, as well.

September 2022 Forecast and Third Quarter North Node Horoscopes

SEPTEMBER 2022 FORECAST

September 1 Mars in Gemini sextile Jupiter in Aries. Grand opportunities, bold beginnings, and wild enthusiasm: early September sounds the horn. Remember this good feeling in times of less certainty.

September 5 Venus enters Virgo. Dial back tendencies to nitpick or demand perfection from loved ones. The next few weeks are a good time to practice discernment about what you need and desire, but the Goddess of Love feels weak in Virgo. Compared to the high romance and sweeping Glamour of Pisces, Virgo feels so — ordinary — and Venus can pout and languish here. Be honest about desires, but resist the urge to destroy something solid in favor of fantasies that won’t materialize. Virgo brings devotion and commitment, day in and day out. It’s OK to long for more, but remember gratitude for what you already have.

September 9 Mercury stations retrograde in Libra. Mercury will remain retrograde until October 2, moving through Libra and back into Virgo. This particular Mercury Rx asks us to re-evaluate legal matters, areas of imbalance, injustice, and re-analyze the details. Complex situations call for more than a cursory look, and we may find that things are not as they appeared. As with any Mercury Rx, dot your i’s and cross your t’s. Closely examine or postpone binding contracts. Remember, time moves in cycles. Previous Mercury Rx periods could return as relevant: January 14-February 3, 2022; May 10-June 3, 2022; even as far back as October 14-November 3, 2020.

September 10 Full Moon in Pisces, 5:59 a.m. Eastern US time. This Full Moon loosely conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, bringing extra empathy and intuition to an already highly charged day. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is “IN A GIGANTIC TENT, VILLAGERS WITNESS A SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE.” Whether religious, political or some form of “bread and circuses,” Neptune’s presence adds massive Glamour to the leader of this spectacle. It will be easy to get carried away by sweeping emotions and inspiration. Something about this Full Moon dazzles the public in dramatic ways.

September 16 Sun in Virgo opposite Neptune in Pisces, and Venus in Virgo square Mars in Gemini. A difficult day filled with potential for misunderstandings. Pay attention to details and see if they point to a larger overall picture, but don’t get paranoid. You’ll need discernment and compassion. When in doubt, save final judgments and relationship decisions for another day.

September 18 Sun in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn, and Mercury in Libra opposite Jupiter in Aries. Light shines on hidden, intimate or difficult affairs, and we’ll have grand ideas regarding how to address these things. A powerful day to transmute the old into something new, but beware of overconfidence. When in doubt, err on the side of thorough research and diplomacy.

September 22 Sun Enters Libra, Fall Equinox, 9:04 p.m. Eastern US time. In some locations, Equinox occurs on September 23, which also brings Sun in Libra conjunct Mercury in Libra, just before Mercury retrograde re-enters Virgo. This is a pivotal 24-hour time period. Not only do we experience our twice per year equal day and night; the Sun and Mercury trade signs. This links the Virgo/Libra energies even more. We can expect further scrutiny (Mercury in Virgo) to shine light on legal matters and relationships (Sun in Libra).

September 24 Venus in Virgo opposite Neptune in Pisces. Today could feel painful and poignant if you don’t integrate the need for solid, grounded relationships and self-esteem as opposed to sweeping, romantic notions and inspiration. It’s a continuum, so aim for balance between the two. If you feel off today, know this is a quick transit. Pay attention to insights about relationships, but continue to explore these over the next few days.

September 25 New Moon in Libra 5:55 p.m. Eastern US time. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins at Sundown. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon indicates powerful shifts: (LIBRA 3°): THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED. This degree also opposes Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter enlarges everything, so whatever revelations come, they’ll be big. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Virgo, bringing love and grace to the message. Saturn in Aquarius trines Mars in Gemini and squares Uranus in Taurus. The Saturn-Mars trine supports responsible action, but the Saturn-Uranus square demands bolder, revolutionary moves. This New Moon sets the stage for an October Surprise when that square goes within minutes of exact.

September 29 Venus enters Libra. The Love Goddess smiles with relief having made it through the Virgo doldrums. Venus enters one of her home signs, bringing extra grace to the arts, beauty, self-esteem and romance. Because we clearly know our own value, we find ways to compromise for the sake of harmony. We can afford to balance the scales, knowing we won’t lose ourselves in the process.

How September’s 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 quarterly 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.     

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

THIRD QUARTER 2022 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

ARIES NORTH NODE: Jupiter remains in Aries all quarter, adding expansive fire to your North Node sign. This bold optimism eases tension as you move through Cancer and Libra seasons. Don’t lose sight of your own course by getting too bogged down nurturing and pleasing others. Mars — the ruler of Aries — enters Gemini on August 20, where he’ll spend a rare seven months, sextiling Aries until March 25, 2023. This transit offers supportive energy. You can take action by seeing through former limitations. As you settle into clarity about codependent relationships, the Wheel of Fortune turns in your favor. New experiences await.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: One of the biggest transits this decade occurs in your sign at the end of July into early August. Staid Taurus has had Uranus stirring things up since May 15, 2018, but July 2022 kicks things up several notches. Mars joins the North Node and Uranus in Taurus in a triple conjunction big enough to knock your socks off. Taurus normally wants to minimize chaos, but you can lean into the energies in order to make quantum leaps. If you’ve felt unsatisfied in an area of life, July and August are a good time for proactive change. You can ride the wave of supportive energies moving through your sign. Take action: you’ll have more influence if you embrace available upgrades.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: When the world goes nuts, shift focus. You’ll benefit from energies this quarter and beyond. Mars — the planet of action and initiative — enters Gemini on August 20 and continues popping off Gemini fireworks until March 25, 2023. Miracles happen when you allow yourself to try new things. Where do passion and interest lead? What tickles your fancy? What turns you into a giddy little kid? Gemini doesn’t take the world too seriously. Sure, Third Quarter 2022 brings intense transits, but your North Node sign makes you extra adaptable to change. Look for silver linings: you’ll find them all over the place. You got this!

CANCER NORTH NODE: In July, Mercury and Venus join the Sun in your North Node sign. You’ll find it easier to articulate feelings and nurture the ones you love. A hint of magic pervades this quarter. You have what you need to thrive, but it takes time and space to receive the blessings. Riptides will pull you under if you try to control the external world. Tend to your own domain. The Moon rules Cancer North Node natives, so pay attention to its cycles. It’s easier to start things during a Waxing Moon, easier to release them in a Waning Moon. Full Moons act like hinge points. New Moons hit the reset button. When burnout strikes, this natural cycle will recharge you.

LEO NORTH NODE: We’re entering your season! Mercury and your sign ruler — the Sun — enter Leo on July 19 and 22, followed by a powerful New Moon in Leo on the 28th. Venus graces your sign from August 11-September 5. Your nodal axis gets squared by all the activity in Taurus. Friction and irritation alert you to coming opportunities. What makes your heart sing? You don’t need to shout that answer to the world just yet, but Third Quarter 2022 adds fuel to your fire. You’ll awaken from whatever nightmares plague you, provided you watch out for #1. Yes, Leo, that means you. When you prosper, everyone benefits. Your greatest contribution happens when you follow your heart.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: Mercury, your sign’s ruler, enters Virgo on August 4, helping you sort through all the details. Virgo North Node natives are service oriented, and this quarter brings new understanding of your role here. It’s time to release old dogmas and illusions. The powerful action in Taurus brings supportive, liberating energy so you can live your best life. Starting on August 22 (or 23), the Sun spends a month highlighting your North Node sign. August 27 brings your yearly New Moon reset, and Venus joins the party on September 5. Third Quarter 2022 asks you to put faith into daily devotion. Not pie in the sky platitudes. Real world choices inspired by dreams and mystical awareness.

LIBRA NORTH NODE: Love is in the air for those who seek it. Every misunderstanding or disappointment offers a chance for higher level harmony and balance. Strange and fleeting opportunities arise. There is enough to go around, but you’ll need to pivot in order to receive the blessings. This is not a time to charge ahead. It’s a time to watch and wait, then open to the experience. Jupiter and Chiron in Aries continue to trigger big lessons from your past. These don’t always feel good, but making peace allows you to move forward. You’ll benefit from Mars in Gemini and Mercury retrograde in Libra, but don’t rush. The Sun shifts seasons to your sign on September 22.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: July’s big energies in your South Node sign of Taurus could disrupt your old status quo. Know this: whatever shifts needs to move. Taurus is the slowest moving sign, which means Scorpio North Node natives cling to familiar patterns even when they no longer serve. Just as some trees only grow after a fire, Scorpio blessings often arrive after some kind of death or destruction. These could be metaphorical, so don’t panic! You can make quantum leaps this quarter by releasing old, false limitations and at least loosening your grip on anyone or anything standing in the way of your regeneration and rebirth. Divine providence knows more than you do. Put the Serenity Prayer on repeat.

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Third Quarter 2022 supercharges your nodal axis. You’ll receive supportive energy from any planets in Aries, Leo, Libra and Aquarius. Anything moving through Gemini pings your South Node, so be careful not to spread yourself too thin. Parties, gossip and social media could overwhelm you. If so, allow yourself to take a break! Seek deeper friendships and inner guidance, rather than superficial “like’s” and popularity. You’ll find community by forging your own way. Your boldness activates those around you. Mars moving through Gemini could trigger arguments about old issues and relationships. Stay strong. It’s OK to know what you know and follow that lead.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: This is a monumental quarter inside yourself, even if outer events don’t seem to touch you. As planets move through Cancer, they conjunct your South Node, bringing new insights and closure on old patterns and relationships. You’ll need to stay grounded, both physically and emotionally, because some of these shifts could feel tectonic. July 13’s Full Moon in Capricorn will affect you more than most. Continue to create new structures to support you through coming changes. If you feel bereft or scared, flip your perspective. How are events positioning you into greater authority and leadership? What newer commitments feel ripe?

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: The New Moon in Leo on July 28th occurs in your South Node sign, while the triple conjunction in Taurus squares the Leo-Aquarius axis. Taskmaster Saturn continues his stay in Aquarius, while the Sun, Mercury and Venus all spend time in Leo this quarter. In other words, you could feel some friction between old and new. You might struggle to find your place inside a group. It’s productive struggle, though — like a butterfly wrestling its way out of a cocoon. Hang in there: August 11 brings a Full Moon in Aquarius, and this bodes well. Mars moves into Gemini on August 20, initiating seven months of active, positive support for your highest path. The coming energies in Libra add wind beneath your wings.

PISCES NORTH NODE: Things have calmed down in Pisces, but they heat up in Cancer, Gemini, Leo and Virgo — your South Node sign. Ruler Neptune remains in your North Node sign, but most of the activation occurs through supportive trines, tense squares, surreal quincunx’s and strong opposition. You’re on a journey with varied terrain and weather. Hills and valleys, sunshine, hail and rainbows. In the bigger scheme of things, you’re moving, and that’s all you really need to know. Watch for signs and synchronicities along the way, especially animals. If you have an unusual sighting or dream, look up the shamanic or spiritual meaning of that ally. Your path is mystical and inspired, but few would call it “rational.” Make peace with your process.

May 2022 Forecast and Second Quarter North Node Horoscopes

MAY 2022 FORECAST

After a long, surreal April, energies intensify in May. We begin the month on the heels of a potent Solar Eclipse in Taurus on Beltane Eve. This sets the stage for some of the same actors playing very different roles. If you’re not sure where it’s all going, you’re not alone. Let the story unfold before you make firm decisions about its value. You might find yourself pleasantly surprised by the performance. And remember: “This is a participatory universe.” You are also in the show you’re watching. If you don’t like the play, you might want to ad-lib.

May 2 Venus enters Aries. Venus moves into the sign of Mars. She’ll spend a little over three weeks here, increasing desire for relationships. She builds confidence but also feels a bit off kilter. Taking risks for the sake of love seems easier, but beware of jealousy and too much aggression. “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.”

May 5 Sun conjunct Uranus in Taurus. Uranian energies get amplified by double five’s and Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Bring a notebook with you to jot down ideas and inspiration. Any restrictions will feel too tight. If you feel frustrated, simply say, “I wonder how I can break on through to the other side.” Don’t censor the response.

May 10 Mercury stations retrograde in Gemini and Jupiter enters Aries. Mercury retrogrades through Gemini and then Taurus, stationing direct on June 3. Triple check travel plans and any important documents. If you prefer some wiggle room in your commitments, then Mercury Rx marks a good time to make agreements. Otherwise, see if you can delay signatures ’til June. Jupiter forging ahead in Aries could lead to overconfidence. If possible, it might be wise to “try before you buy.”

May 16 Full Moon in Scorpio, Lunar Eclipse, 12:14 a.m. Eastern US time. Also known as the Flower Moon, this is a South Node Eclipse that asks us to adapt quickly to changing situations. As flowers move from bud to bloom to faded petals to seed, we, too, need to embrace ever evolving shifts. The South Node brings a karmic flavor to any collective Shadow Work. With Uranus near the Sun point, we can expect rebellious, revolutionary and liberating insights to trigger some of the karmic release.

May 18 Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces. In the days preceding this date through perhaps a day or so after, sensitivity kicks up several notches. Depending on how you process Neptune energies, you might feel like a dreamy romantic or a paranoid schizophrenic. Empaths should practice extra good energy hygiene during this time. Meditation, creative projects, and beautiful lovemaking are all favored. You’ll want to protect your energy, though. Harshness, violence and warlike postures will disturb you more than usual. Lean into the dreamier, spiritual side of Neptune, instead of confusion and delusion.

May 20 Sun enters Gemini. The sign of the Twins favors the mental realm, short trips, wheeling and dealing, curiosity, and communication. It’s a great time to dabble. Take up something that interests you and don’t worry about its staying power. Just experiment. Gemini also brings out the flirtation, so turn on the charm or rein it in, depending on your situation.

May 21 Sun conjunct Mercury in Gemini. The Sun in Gemini has a quick chat with ruler Mercury, who’s busy moving in the opposite direction. This chat might be more like an emoji filled text stream — just enough to touch base. If insights come, they’ll be fleeting. You can afford to try on different realities and worldviews, because nothing’s fixed right now. Make peace with uncertainty. It will pass, but not in May. While this might feel frustrating, you can lean into freedom.

May 22 Mercury retrograde re-enters Taurus. Between now and June 3, we get an extra chance to sloooooooow down and re-evaluate our next steps. Use this time for anything that begins with re-. Review, realign, redo. It’s also a great time to ground yourself in Nature. When the mental realm feels wonky, take a walk!

May 24 Mars enters Aries. The Warrior of action and willpower enters his home sign. If you’ve lacked courage and drive, you’ll find some now. Energies favor independence, initiative, risk-taking and leadership. “C’mon, baby, light my fire.”

May 28 Venus enters Taurus. The Love Goddess enters one of her home signs, bringing three weeks of extra sensuality, embodiment and restored self-esteem. What small moves would beautify you and your environment? With Mars and Venus both in their home signs, relationships flow more naturally. That doesn’t mean everyone always gets along, but it will become more obvious which compromises make sense and which ones dilute the essence of those involved.

May 30 New Moon in Gemini, 7:30 a.m. Eastern US time. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon point is AN AIRPLANE PERFORMING A NOSE DIVE. Will it be a Blue Angels show — or a crash from the air? The stakes could not be higher. Success takes boldness, but we’ll have that with a sextile from the Jupiter/Mars conjunction in fiery Aries. Meanwhile, Mercury and the North Node in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius, urging us to negotiate what seems like an impossible situation. Suspense, action, skill. “Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly, Pack up, let’s fly away!”

How May’s 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 quarterly 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.     

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

SECOND QUARTER 2022 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

ARIES NORTH NODE: April 2022 emphasizes healing for Aries North Node natives. Things you’ve wondered about for a long time could finally make sense and allow you to start moving beyond old patterns. May highlights relationships. As always, you’ll need to balance your own needs while resisting the urge for co-dependence. Your faith and confidence expand as Jupiter enters Aries on May 10. He’ll remain in Aries over five months, until October 28th, when he returns to Pisces until the end of the year. Pay attention to lucky breaks, financial windfalls, and opportunities to do something BIG. Your sign’s ruler, Mars, enters Aries on May 24. From late May-July 5, you get extra energy and drive. A good time to take action on anything that ignites your passion.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: The Sun shines on Taurus North Node natives from April 19-May 20. You’ll be extra impacted by the powerful New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30. With the North Node in your sign, you can expect deep insights and inner and outer course corrections. Pay attention to coincidences that seem like signs. They are! May brings opportunities for breakthroughs, but Mercury will be retrograde in Taurus from May 22-June 3. If things feel like “Hurry up and wait,” just go with it. You don’t need to push. Trust that everything will come together at the perfect time and pace. If your past issues flare around the May 16 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, don’t overreact to that either. You got this. Use June to recharge your batteries.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: Second Quarter 2022 asks you to do old things in new ways. Your perspective flip flops, and that is A-OK. You can “master” hard energies by opening yourself to paradox. Instead of chaining yourself to prior expectations, embrace the freedom to go with an ever evolving flow. Mercury, your sign’s ruler, enters Gemini on April 29 and goes retrograde in Gemini from May 10-22, when he re-enters Taurus for awhile. Mercury returns to Gemini with more information and better deals on June 13, followed by Love Goddess Venus on June 22. You’ll get the most from this quarter by following where synchronicity and curiosity lead. You’re awakening to new levels of communication, including from animals, crystals, and telepathic downloads. Don’t work too hard, Gemini. Distractions and play time are good for you.

CANCER NORTH NODE: You need downtime: puttering around the house, taking baths, and nurturing yourself with TLC. It’s OK to narrow your inner circle and focus on what matters most to you and your closest loved ones. You’ll find safe passage in this crazy world by tending to your own vibration and learning to accept help from unexpected quarters. You’re so good at running the show, but sometimes you just need to curl up in your jammies and binge watch Rom Com’s with a bowl of popcorn. Allow the watery energies of April to wash over you, and then take May to process the cleanse. By Solstice on June 21, you’ll be re-balanced and ready to face the world again. Commit to a more sustainable flow of giving and receiving. Your next cycle begins with the June 28 New Moon in Cancer.

LEO NORTH NODE: A surprisingly intense quarter, considering nothing’s in your North Node sign. Intense can be good, provided you lean into it. Eclipse Season squares the Leo-Aquarius nodal axis: a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30, followed by a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 16. Squares generate friction, which leads to pearls under the right circumstances. With the collective nodal axis in Taurus-Scorpio, these events initiate even greater shifts. If it feels time to release something old, just do it. Letting it go on your own terms feels better than life ripping it away from you. These cosmic course corrections open pathways for new, more aligned connections and activities. If you embrace the Second Quarter pressure to change, you’ll position yourself well for Third Quarter breakthroughs.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: Wow, have you got a chance to realign and reset! Love energies abound, with supportive, destiny level energy from the collective nodal axis. Whenever you feel overwhelmed, focus on small details and daily rituals. April will feel surreal, but resistance is futile. If you open yourself to the cleansing energies, you can wash away lifetimes of old crud. Virgo loves cleanliness and order. Once the waters recede, you can reground yourself in a new physical and emotional landscape. Things are not as they’ve appeared. Take time to observe your new surroundings. This quarter’s Mercury Retrograde from May 10-June 3 will redo your worldview. The first part presents challenges to your communication and understanding, but the later part supports reintegration of old and new information. A breakthrough quarter!

LIBRA NORTH NODE: Second Quarter 2022 is a time of gathering energy and messages for later in the year. Libra North Node natives get activated by the energies, but in subtle, rather than obvious ways. Be mindful of burnout. You don’t need to run the fastest race in order to succeed. You’ll move further by mixing activity with rest and camaraderie. Share your victories with others of like mind, but don’t broadcast every move. Keep intentions close to your vest, because things are percolating. You don’t know where or how they will wind up — and that’s a good thing! This is not a time to charge ahead. It’s a time to gather energy and wait for the right timing and energetic support. Pay attention to little signs and synchronicities, especially ones that involve other people. Patience is a virtue worth your time and energy.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: Quantum leaps are possible for those willing to align with Destiny. With the South Node transiting through your North Node sign, you’re 180 from most of the world, but hey, the world’s insane right now. Up is down, inside’s out. Face the darkness: it will bring you Light. The powerful eclipses on April 30 and May 16 activate Scorpio North Node natives in extra potent ways. Issues of intimacy, security and regeneration arise. Seize this chance to drop the victim role. You are so much more than the stories you keep telling. Reclaim your power, so your body, mind and spirit can be reborn. April allows you to wash away anything that no longer serves. You’ll find it easier to release those things you’ve held onto out of fear or habit. Enter the Void. It’s so much fuller than you think!

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Second Quarter 2022 feels magical for Sagittarius North Node natives. The inner work you’ve done for the past two years continues to bear fruit. Your only direct activation occurs on the June 14 Full Moon in Sagittarius, but this whole quarter brings opportunities your way. Pay attention to the things you love, but also to opposition. Contrast helps you gain more clarity about that which you do want. You’ll find your True North by following where passion leads. Consider taking — or teaching — a class this quarter. You have lots of tools, but you benefit from higher learning. Dabbling is soooo South Node Gemini! You’ll enjoy honing your expertise. If you haven’t traveled anywhere this year, remedy that ASAP. If can’t physically go somewhere, you can get lost in an epic film, novel or documentary.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: With all the supportive energy coming from Pisces and Taurus, Second Quarter 2022 feels magical for Capricorn North Node natives. Finances and relationships flow, and it feels easier to bring spiritual visions into tangible reality. On June 21, the Sun moves into your South Node sign, Cancer. Pay attention to sudden insights about old contacts, patterns and ways of being. If these arise, it doesn’t mean you backslid; rather, it’s an opportunity to lay (fully) to rest that which no longer serves. Your hard work over the past few years neutralizes nostalgia for “the way things were.” You realize you can appreciate the old without hiding behind it. A new world awaits, and Cappy’s lead the way by actively imagining and anchoring the New Earth frequencies.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: Eclipse Season squares the Aquarius-Leo nodal axis, and Saturn continues his 2.5 year stint in Aquarius — even longer if you count his initial foray there from March 21-July 1, 2020. The transiting nodal axis also continues to square the Aquarius-Leo nodal axis, and this friction urges a need for destiny level change. You’re being asked to move from the personal ego (Leo South Node) to group consciousness. Whenever you get hung up on individual relationships and goals, you benefit from stepping back. How do sticky karmic ties inhibit you from expressing your zaniest, least conventional, most innovative and authentic self? How can you practice healthy non-attachment? This isn’t the same as rejection, but it allows you to complete your mission in a much greater process of Human Evolution.

PISCES NORTH NODE: One of the biggest transits of the year occurs throughout April in your North Node sign. Your sign rulers, Jupiter and Neptune, conjunct in Pisces for the first time in 166 years. Venus also spends much of the month in Pisces. These transits continue the sweeping (yet nebulous) destiny level shifts you’ve undergone since Neptune first entered Pisces in April 2011. Emotions range from huge satisfaction to world weariness to poignant nostalgia to safe passage directed by forces beyond your comprehension. As surreal as April feels, May might feel a bit edgy with squares from Gemini and Sagittarius. At the same time, you’ll continue to receive supportive energies from Taurus and Capricorn. Use this quarter to release rigidity and imagine a beautiful new life materializing from beyond.
