January 2021 Forecast and First Quarter North Node Horoscopes

JANUARY 2021 FORECAST

Happy New Year! Out with the old, in with the new.

I’ll continue offering monthly forecasts, but you’ll notice I’ve changed the North Node Horoscopes to quarterly. My own Capricorn North Node demanded I reclaim some of the time and effort it takes to write monthly horoscopes. Since the North Node in your natal chart acts like a personal North Star, quarterly horoscopes will also help you to focus more on integrating the guidance into daily life. I’ll include the quarterly North Node Horoscopes following each monthly forecast. I hope soul insights will deepen as you review the messages in light of prior month(s), while preparing for your next one.

This forecast covers some of the bigger events in January 2021. The intense energies we felt in late 2020 shift into higher gear with tension between staid Taurus and revolutionary Aquarius. Dramatic astro weather continues, but things should feel lighter this month — or at least different. We’ll feel a shift in the winds, especially around mid-month.

On January 5, Mercury the Messenger meets Pluto Lord of the Underworld, in Capricorn. Expect deep revelations — both personal and collective. Pay special attention to dreams, symbols and your intuition on the 4th -7th. These days can bring big insights into unconscious emotions, but try not to assume or convey the worst. Take time to process before blurting things out.

The January 13 New Moon in Capricorn falls within minutes of last year’s Saturn-Pluto Conjunction. In the Eastern time zone, this New Moon occurs at the stroke of midnight, a year and a day after the Conjunction that colored all of 2020. “A year and a day” represents a magical time of completion or full initiation. Happening at the hinge point of midnight on the 13th, so close to the degree of the powerful Saturn-Pluto Conjunction, this dark passage forms a birth canal. Honor how you’ve changed and grown since January 12, 2020. Some major process of destruction and renovation will complete and reset with this New Moon.

The next day, January 14 holds potential for wild changes and eruptions. That’s the day that rebel Uranus stations direct in stable Taurus. Stationing direct supercharges influence of an outer planet, and Uranus is the most volatile. Fiery Mars in Taurus fast approaches lightning bolt liberator Uranus, adding intensity and volatility. All this, while expansive Jupiter squares Uranus, karmic Saturn squares Mars, and the Sun shines a spotlight on Pluto’s Underworld. Where and how this intensity affects you depends on your full natal chart, but collectively, we can expect something big to shift mid-month.

On January 18, the Jupiter square Uranus transit goes exact. Jupiter magnifies, so whatever gets triggered on January 14, will grow. On the 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius, and on the 20th, the Moon joins Mars and Uranus in Taurus. Expect high tensions and emotions, and use whatever tools you have to become the calm within the storm. Those with cool heads and focused attention can benefit from chaos. Prepare yourself to seize any rare opportunities. Also on January 20, Mars exactly conjuncts Uranus in Taurus. The sign of Taurus tempers some of the volatility of this meeting, but expect the unexpected. Some unusual solution or non-conformist willpower may upset the status quo. Preparation allows you to work these transits to your advantage.

The Full Moon in Leo arrives on January 28 at 2:16 p.m. Eastern. This Full Moon gets amplified by Jupiter conjuncting the Sun in Aquarius. Jupiter expands, so this Full Moon gets extra oomph, while also squaring volatile Mars conjunct Uranus in Taurus. Venus now meets Pluto, suggesting shifts in romance, relationships, arts, values and beauty. Relationships could end or deeply transform at this time. Focus on true intimacy and the regenerative power of love.

Mercury stations retrograde on January 30, moving back through Aquarius until February 20. You can use these energies to review any limited worldview(s) and rework those to more empowering, innovative and liberating ways of processing and sharing information.

How January’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 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

FIRST QUARTER 2021 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

ARIES NORTH NODE: The theme for First Quarter 2021 is finding a new balance of helping others and being helped. Your sign’s ruler, Mars, spent a record six month in Aries in 2020. That fiery energy activated destiny level shifts for Aries North Node natives. Now you need to ground those shifts into tangible, real world things. “Put your money where you mouth is” can mean literally funding your new venture, or it could mean “talk is cheap, get to work!” You might need to use some of your Libra South Node skills to negotiate financial support for a new idea or circumstance that puts you in a leadership role. In any case, you’ll want to pay more attention to the 3D steps to solidify whatever inspiration or passion ignited during the second half of 2020. This first quarter of 2021 brings a chance for healing, love, and rebirth. Hard work pays dividends.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: First Quarter 2021 urges unusual, innovative and unexpected upgrades in communication. This can include animals, Spirit Guides, and crystals, as well as cyberspace. Pay attention to sudden insights that arrive through friction or irritation. Your perceptions are high right now. If you feel the need for increased boundaries, build those into your daily life. Slow and steady movement on larger projects ensures you’ll still make progress, even if things take longer than you planned. “Delay leads to delight.” Allow for more time than you think you need. Pay attention to how spiritual forces impact your body. You might feel better implementing daily prayer or meditation, yoga or tai chi. Feel the flow of energy in your home, too. January through March encourages you to reorganize your closet or feng shui your home. Ask yourself if this stuff still feels like “you” or if you need an upgrade.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: Indulge your gift of the gab, and start writing! Whether in a journal, blog, letters or book, you need to express yourself during First Quarter 2021. Gemini North Node natives are learning to consider two or more sides to everything. New perspectives allow you to find love and community in unexpected places. Tell your story, and give yourself a happy ending. Then, continue balancing all the elements, so that you can keep walking forward, no matter how much you want to dig in your heels. Yours is one of the most magical North Node signs — if you allow yourself to recognize and receive the messages. The Universe, God, angels, and animals all love to communicate with those who have “eyes to see and ears to hear.” You can heal yourself and others by opening to wonder. Life is complex and beautiful. Follow synchronicity and embrace the Mystery.

CANCER NORTH NODE: You don’t need to do it all yourself! First Quarter 2021 asks you to focus on partnership and nurturing. You might feel off kilter from all the external drama in January, but take a moment to assess if anyone’s really getting hurt. Your Capricorn South Node likes order and a certain amount of tradition. The new energies in rebel Aquarius can rock foundations. You’ll feel better as you move from judgment into feeling. It’s OK to feel afraid sometimes. Expressing your vulnerable side lets others know you’re in this together. When you express your own need for support, you find the security you seek. Not by being perfect, but by connecting with those you love. Aquarian energy has an outward focus, yet you thrive by tending to your own family, home and private sphere. The world will sort itself out — or not. Life rewards you for soft touches, womb-like cocoons, and gentle words and tones.

LEO NORTH NODE: Maturation is the name of the game with so many planets moving through your South Node sign of Aquarius. Whenever multiple planets cross your South Node, old acquaintances and familiar patterns vie for your attention. Take some time to assess where you’ve been, so that you can feel more satisfied with wherever you feel led. Going along to get along won’t serve you anymore. You need to get in touch with whatever makes your heart sing. First Quarter 2021 asks you to embrace the Divine Feminine. Her energy might come through the January 28 Full Moon in Leo, your own enhanced intuition, or an energizing chat with a female friend. Watch for new opportunities, especially if they arise through seeming friction or irritation. Instead of roaring in frustration, cultivate some catlike curiosity. Position yourself to pounce on unexpected solutions, including financial windfalls.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: The big First Quarter event for Virgo North Node natives is the February 27 Full Moon in Virgo. You’ll get more out of this transit if you prepare yourself ahead of time. Spend some time in quiet retreat. 2021 would be a great time to commit to a daily spiritual practice. Regular meditation, yoga or scheduled time in prayer helps you to welcome spiritual support into daily life. “Commitment” is your power word this year. Use January to get clear, and then find ways to solidify your devotion. This integration of mystical inspiration with practical steps allows you to thrive no matter what happens around you. Reach for the light at the end of the tunnel, knowing you can make your way there, step by careful step. Focus on the scenery as you make your way to any bigger picture goal. Those little jewels bring so much wealth and beauty to your journey. “God is in the details.” ~Ludwig Meis van der Rohe

LIBRA NORTH NODE: Focus on “Forgiveness” during First Quarter 2021. Forgiving yourself and others frees you to move more fully and joyfully into the Now. Ask yourself, “What old wounds, resentments or battles can I release in order to make room for something better?” Because something better wants to find you. Your astro climate changed on Winter Solstice. Supportive Aquarian energies offer release after years of pressure. Leaning into this innovative and cooperative zeitgeist will help you transcend isolated or lone wolf tendencies. Look for unconventional, yet practical solutions to problems. Old tools used in new ways. Anger can turn to frustration, depression — or determination. Practice choosing where and how to direct your feelings. You can harness the energy of raw emotions as rocket fuel for living a more magical life. Things flow better for you when you partner with others, including invisible helpers and unusual friends. Begin to explore how Loving Connection forms the fabric of the Universe.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: Yours is one of the most intuitive of the North Node signs. Your feelings run deep, and sometimes fear limits you from flying. Your Taurus South Node wants security, proceeding step by little step, but your life path involves quantum leaps and regeneration. Pay attention to timing during First Quarter 2021. Yes, you’ll feel some occasional traffic jams and roadblocks from all the planets in Aquarius and Taurus, but don’t give up on opportunities. “No” might simply mean “not yet.” It might also mean, “No, not this: something so much better!” Allow yourself to recognize your need and desire for intimacy, deep sharing, and the ability to move through raw emotions. You’ll experience greater calm and clarity as you realize that “This, too, shall pass” doesn’t only mean loss. As the zodiac’s alchemists, Scorpio North Node natives can turn metaphorical lead into gold. “Transmutation” is your word for First Quarter 2021. Find a creative outlet for all that energy.

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: The collective South Node continues making its way through your North Node sign. This tension between old and new, collective and personal increases the importance of perfect timing. Don’t let delays dim your faith. Powerful Aquarian energies support you now. Aquarius Air fans Sagittarius fire. You might feel this as heartwarming connections with friends, both old and new. You could also find yourself supercharged and renewed by philosophical, religious or scholarly ideas. Explore ways to bring more of this passion into everyday life. Knowing something feels different than thinking about something. Focus on knowing. Strong beliefs ignite and expand your outer world experience. Be bold. Your soul needs big adventures. If 3D world travel restrictions feel too tight, then open your mind and heart to inner travel. You’ve got a great mind and powerful intuition. Practice integrating these competing sides of yourself. When in doubt, pray. Ask for Divine Guidance and follow where it leads.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: What wisdom can you extract from the last three years? Looking backwards at the beginning of a year helps you get grounded before building something big. Use January to nurture your body, assess finances and appreciate the bounty you’ve gathered in all areas of life. You’ve worked hard, Capricorn! With a better sense of where you’ve been, prepare to prune anything out of alignment with the direction you feel led to grow. Keep plans close to your vest. You do better not telegraphing your every move. Hearing too much commentary weakens your resolve, because you empath other people’s fears and emotional reactivity. If you seek more clarity, then a journal or life coach may serve you better than a well meaning, but dream crushing friend or family member. You can climb literal and metaphorical mountains. Sometimes the journey feels hard. Refresh yourself by swimming in an alpine lake — or with an at home spa day — then keep going. Life rewards your determination.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: Although transition remains a long, slow process, we officially entered the Age of Aquarius on Winter Solstice 2020. First Quarter 2021 brings powerful activation for Aquarius North Node natives. You might not realize it, but you’re in your element. Focus on unusual guidance and lightning bolt insights. Sometimes life will feel chaotic, like you’ve jumped on the back of a wild horse. Other times, you’ll feel the slow, stabilizing force of traditional Saturn in liberating Aquarius. Embrace changes that feel urgent or deeply necessary, but don’t force yourself to work too hard. When big planets move through your North Node sign, the “open door, closed door” effect becomes more obvious. Stop banging your head against closed doors. Something will open for you, and it will do so right on time. Once things get going, destiny will pull you along. You just need to cultivate balance and ground the energy pulsing through you. Record your ideas, whether in a journal or on your phone. Inspiration will strike. These moments are fleeting yet powerful. Harness them.

PISCES NORTH NODE: “Creative daydreaming” is your phrase for First Quarter 2021. Before you commit to anything, make sure it feels soft, nurturing and/or magical. Yours is the dreamiest North Node sign. The collective nodal axis continues to square your North and South Node signs. This can feel like friction or restriction. Try not to get bogged down in details. You don’t need to plan everything ahead of time. In fact, planning too much slows you down. If something seems delayed, go back to the dreaming board. Literally ask your dreams to help you find and live your most beautiful and inspired life. Spend time in mystical pursuits: prayer, chanting, even a good soak in the tub. Add some candlelight and Chopin — whatever it takes to bring mind chatter to a minimum. Your Spirit merges into Oneness whenever you let go. From this womblike connection flow all the elements of creative life.

December 2020 Forecast and North Node Horoscopes

DECEMBER 2020 FORECAST

This year sprints to the finish line with as much intensity as January 2020 ushered in. We began the year with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer on January 10, followed by a monumental one-time exact conjunction between Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn on January 12. Although these two planets come together every 37 years or so, the last Saturn-Pluto Conjunction in Capricorn triggered the Protestant Reformation. In other words, it was a big, cosmic deal! With long lasting effects. The energy of this meeting carried throughout the year with near almost-meetings between Saturn and Pluto. Jupiter’s journey through Capricorn in 2020 only magnified the impact.

December 2020 echoes January 2020 because on Winter Solstice — the longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, and the day the Sun moves into Capricorn — Jupiter and Saturn come together at 0 degrees Aquarius. Then, a little over a week later on the 29th, we have a rare second Full Moon in Cancer this year. In layman’s terms, this is like a Blue Moon on steroids.

Without getting too technical, the Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction on December 21 ushers in a new Age of Air after a 200-year Age of Earth. We’re talking about a seismic energy shift for the collective. This second Full Moon in Cancer occurs with very precise links to the collective North Node destiny point and Jupiter’s positions during the first Full Moon in Cancer. You can think of this as the dramatic bold print and highlighter of emotions. Feelings that flickered through and were repressed (eclipsed) during the January 10 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will be undeniable on and after December 29.

History will continue unpacking 2020 for a long time to come — especially the ways it affected our personal, private, home lives vs. authority, leaders and traditional structures.

A dreamy, sweet spot for the month occurs on December 5, when Venus makes a supportive trine to Neptune. The Love Goddess flashes her dazzling smile on the planet of Higher Love. This is a great day for creative projects, romance and compassion. Enjoy the energies, as we’ll need them amidst another intense month after many intense months.

December 14 brings a New Moon in Sagittarius and a Total Solar Eclipse. The last eclipse of the season demands communication about old patterns and the way things have been. Some of the revelations will feel dark and heavy, but at least they’re up for collective discussion. Communication can heal, especially when discussing formerly secret, dysfunctional and abusive things. Most New Moons offer a kind of monthly reset; this one offers a “never again” kind of reset. Clarity about what truly needs to change in order for humanity to embrace its true destiny and best path forward.

Overall, December 2020 will feel intense, but also like a culmination to an extremely intense and productive year. Take some time to ponder all the ways you made it through. This year was a huge learning opportunity, and those don’t always feel fun. It’s final exam time. We’re not finished learning, but 2020 has been a significant step in human evolution. Allow yourself to celebrate your own strength and ability to learn and implement new things. Whether you did so willingly or kicking and screaming, you changed a lot this year. Give credit where credit’s due.

How December 2020’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 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

DECEMBER 2020 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

ARIES NORTH NODE: December is the last full month Aries ruler Mars will be in his home sign. Mars usually spends only six weeks in each sign, but a long retrograde had him activating your North Node sign from June 27, 2020 until January 6, 2021. That’s ten times the activation of a normal Mars transit. Now that Mars is moving forward again, you can expect more clarity and vigor regarding destiny level urges and desires. Beginning December 21, the Sun will shine light on your nodal axis — where your soul has been and where you’re headed. Remember, a small shift in perspective allows you to change frustration and anger into determination. Summon the energy to complete something before the end of the year. It doesn’t need to be a big thing, but finishing a commitment will make you feel better about all of 2020. Release something you no longer need on the 29th’s Full Moon. It’s been a long year: time to move on!

TAURUS NORTH NODE: This is a powerful, dramatic month for Taurus North Node natives. Allow yourself the time to process change. Even positive change requires integration. Justice and a sense of completion are themes for this last month of the year. Take stock of what you’ve acquired in 2020. Skills, tools, surroundings: it all matters. You are learning to build and celebrate a better world. This creation takes time, and that’s OK. Slow, steady shifts are less traumatic and more sustainable. Take the long term view. Even if your year feels incomplete, note whatever has run its course. If you look for them, you’re bound to find areas where you’ve made solid progress. No one else knows what kind of inner transformation it took for you to make those steps. Spend some quiet time puttering and arranging things the way you like them. You have time now. Events will ramp up in January.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: If you’ve felt trapped by illusions, reaching for the light in a long, dark tunnel, the good news is that it’s always darkest before the dawn. Gemini North Node natives have felt a lot of pressure this Fall, more so than most signs. With the transiting North Node moving through your sign and reordering life according to destiny, plus quincunx demands from Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn, it may have felt like you “can’t catch a break” and “where’s your happy ending?” On December 17 and 19, heavyweights Saturn then Jupiter move into fellow Air Sign Aquarius, heralding a new Age of Air after 200 years of Earth energy. Change takes time to integrate, but Gemini North Node natives are here to embrace and revel in change. Yes, you can twist and turn and even dance your way to happier times. Allow some of that zany Aquarian energy to shake up your routines and anything stuck. Aquarius and Gemini are great friends. Keep going. More compatible companions and energies are on the way.

CANCER NORTH NODE: The biggest events in December for Cancer North Node natives are the Winter Equinox/Saturn/Jupiter conjunction on December 21st, and the Full Moon at 10:28 p.m. Eastern time on the 29th. Winter Equinox marks the transition from Sun into your South Node sign of Capricorn, where for the next 30 days, it will highlight old issues, relationship patterns and expectations. As the Sun sheds light on these areas, you’ll need to remind yourself to remain open to emotions. There is a surprising strength in vulnerability. This is the Second Full Moon in Cancer in 2020, and this “Long Night’s Moon” asks you to evaluate how you’ve changed since January. What endings brought new beginnings? In which ways did life challenge you to give more freely? How did life restructure itself in support of softer, more heartfelt priorities? 2020 was a challenging year. Be sure to claim the reward for your hard work.

LEO NORTH NODE: If you’ve been waiting for your ships to arrive, continue to have faith that good, new things are on the horizon. The Universe wants you to succeed. Sometimes it just takes patience in order for things to turn your way. What makes you feel young at heart? Fill some of your waiting time by doing more of those things. Leo’s need to play. Jupiter and Saturn are moving into your South Node sign in mid-December. Resist tendencies to get too serious, group-oriented or emotionally detached. You need to live from a place of joy and natural instinct. Get off your electronic devices for a good stretch each day! Step away from your desk and social media. You’ll feel more emotionally grounded if you get into your body and out in nature. Take advantage of the first three weeks of December as the Sagittarius Sun shines supportive light on your destiny and business ventures. Pay attention to passion and desires that arise, and give yourself permission to pursue them.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: Maintain mental clarity this holiday season by minimizing any tendencies to zone out with sugar or alcohol. You’re much stronger and more grounded when you stick to diet and exercise. You can ease up on intensity, but don’t get too far off track. You’ll feel so much better if you eat healthy foods and make time to meditate, walk or run. Modify your routine rather than throwing it out. For you, it’s much easier to keep a good thing going than to crawl out of a bad habit again and again. Give yourself the gift of strength, and don’t be afraid to live a life of true abundance. Focus on grounded support — both giving and receiving. You have an ability to inspire others through your own discipline. When you live your best self, you model what’s possible for others. You can make the mundane sacred by devoting yourself to life’s little details.

LIBRA NORTH NODE: In mid-December, Saturn and Jupiter join forces in fellow Air Sign Aquarius, finally offering expansive and supportive energy to Libra North Node natives. Just having these two heavyweights out of Capricorn will feel like a relief. Meanwhile, the transiting North Node continues trining Libra from Air Sign Gemini. Instead of feeling so pushed and pressed, Libra North Node natives will start feeling some wind beneath their wings: success and rejuvenation on a destiny level. Just remember that victories taste sweeter when shared with others. Uplift and inspire by partnering with those who may not have your courage or confidence. Find balance in all things, especially in the active and receptive. When in doubt, err on the side of a little too much generosity. Reach out and make someone’s day by showing them you care.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: If you feel stuck or unable to let go of emotions, or situations in your life, try moving out physical items. ‘Tis the season for giving. Do you really need all of that old stuff?! Belongings hold energy. If you haven’t used it or looked at it in five years, can you think of someone who could? When you give away that which no longer serves, you open room for the kind of abundance you do need. Is it health? Emotional support? A sense that your day will finally arrive? When you recognize such abundance that you can give some away, you move from a space of lack to one of receiving that which you truly need. If you put your faith in externals beyond your control, you will never feel secure. Practice surrendering to a Higher Power. Cultivate an ability to recognize that which remains eternal amidst constant change. Thou art that.

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: The Sun’s in your sign for three weeks. Enjoy the clarity it offers as the collective South Node continues bringing up old patterns and relationships for review. This focus on old relationships intensifies mid-month with a New Moon Total Solar Eclipse on December 14. Love Goddess Venus enters Sagittarius the very next day, bringing grace, beauty and self-esteem. Count your blessings this month and aim to reclaim the best of the old while sparking new passion and zest for life. Be bold and wear red. ‘Tis the season to bring the light and bright to darker, heavier energies. People turn to you for the unvarnished truth. You know more than you think you do. Choose one area where you’d like to deepen your studies and experience. If you’ve been going stir crazy with travel restrictions, find a way to satisfy that urge. Road trip to Air BnB’s, watch travel videos, or read a novel set where you want to go. Reignite your sense of adventure.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: Jupiter and Saturn finish their journey through Capricorn, with Saturn moving to Aquarius on the 17th, followed by Jupiter on the 19th. Saturn won’t return to his home sign of Capricorn until 2048, so git ‘er done! On Winter Solstice, December 21, when Jupiter and Saturn meet in Aquarius, the Sun moves into Capricorn, shining light on your North Node sign for the next month. Pay attention to any insights you receive on or around the Full Moon on the 29th. Use this time to assess how you’ve changed this year. What new structures and foundations have you built? How have you re-balanced any tendencies to over-give? How has your health improved by setting boundaries and managing your emotions? Continue focusing on best of the old while ushering in improvements and upgrades. Cultivating an awareness of two worlds will help you navigate big events with greater ease. When you partner with the guiding force of the Universe, life becomes a dance.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: On December 17, Saturn moves into Aquarius, followed by Jupiter on the 19th and their Great Conjunction on Winter Solstice. This change in the winds begins to activate destiny level shifts in your North Node sign. Jupiter will expand and supercharge Aquarius for 12 months, while Saturn remains for 2.5 years. As Father Time and Lord of Karma, Saturn has a special relationship with the North Node. You might feel a cosmic “ahem,” urging you to evaluate where you’re on path and where you need to adjust your approach. Yours is an innovative sign. If you feel pressured or restricted, ask, “What am I missing?” and “I wonder what solutions I’m about to find?” Some of these solutions will probably seem counter-intuitive, but a higher order guides your process.  Now would be a good time to explore your natal chart or deepen astrology studies. Carve out time for “flighty” pursuits and things that “float your boat.” A zany new interest could change your life in profound ways.

PISCES NORTH NODE: If you catch yourself worrying about things beyond your control, close your eyes and allow yourself to feel the emotions. Getting stuck in your head doesn’t serve you. As Helen Keller said, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched — they must be felt with the heart.” Tune into the magic and childlike wonder of this season. Creative pursuits bring delight, and so do children. If you can’t spend the holidays in person with younger loved ones, try some other means of connection. Remember to balance external obligations with your internal needs. You’ll move through life more efficiently if you take some time each day to mediate and/or center yourself. This month could bring friction in relationships and questions of your own self-value. You have what it takes to navigate these challenges. Lead with Spirit and let the 3D world follow along. When in doubt, paint, sing or dance it out.

November Forecast and North Node Horoscopes

Happy Blue Moon Halloween! At 10:49 a.m. Eastern US time, today’s second Full Moon of the month very closely conjuncts Uranus at 8 degrees Taurus, adding extra surprises, liberation and transformation to an already potent day of very thin veils.

Mercury stations direct on November 3 — election day in the US — clearing at least some of the confusion and miscommunication of the past few weeks. We’ll still have some difficult friction and slowing aspects throughout the month, so don’t get discouraged if things continue feeling kinda crazy. This, too, shall pass. (Eventually!) Though still inhibited by intense squares from Capricorn, Mars stationing direct in Aries on the 13th should help to move along stalled or revamped plans.

Venus spends most of November in her home sign, Libra. Fellow Air Signs Gemini and Aquarius will also get a boost from the Goddess of love, beauty, money, the arts and self-esteem. With the balanced scales of Libra, hopefully, Venus will lend some love and grace to polarized values and demands for justice. On the 21st, she moves into deep, smoldering Scorpio, bringing attention to passion and power dynamics in relationships.

The Sun spends the first three weeks of November shining light on the depths of Scorpio. On the 21st, just hours after Venus enters Scorpio, the Sun moves into fiery archer Sagittarius. We can expect several weeks of dark, shadowy revelations. With Mercury and Mars direct, and once the Sun enters blunt, truth-loving Sagittarius, those murky leaks and blown whistles will start to make sense to more people.

As in October, the Moon is very powerful this month. November begins on the heels of a Blue Moon on Halloween. (The last Full Moon on Halloween was in 2001, so this is a big deal.) On November 15th, just days after Mars goes direct, we’ll have a New Moon in Scorpio. This is a Super Moon that hits the reset button, releasing the old and opening to new urges and intentions. Like October, the final day of November brings another dramatic lunar event — the first eclipse of the season, on a Gemini Full Moon.

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.

NOVEMBER 2020 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

ARIES NORTH NODE: Throughout the month, significant energies from Scorpio will quincunx Aries North Node natives. The quincunx, 150 degrees, is a creative aspect that demands integration of energies that seem not to have anything in common. This could play out in the domain of personal and work relationships — what feels balanced, versus trapped? What would feel more authentic? In which ways do you feel victimized or overly compromised? Pay attention to your dreams this month. Some dynamics are easier to address in that realm or in a journal before taking action in “real” life. On November 13, Mars stations direct after a frustrating period in retrograde since September 9. If projects slowed down during that time, anything on path for you should start moving forward again in the second half of the month. If it’s still not moving forward, you might need to dream bigger. You’re not meant to hide in the shadows or follow societal limitations. The light at the end of the tunnel comes when you not only reach, but run towards it.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: Exercise moderation as you continue to integrate the powerful Blue Moon on Halloween that occurred conjunct Uranus in Taurus. Even if this did not directly aspect your Nodal axis, the effects of this collective transit will linger for Taurus North Node natives. Spend time meditating in Nature, or imagining yourself in Nature. This will help you to make sense of anything shaken loose this month as the Sun, Mercury and Venus cross your South Node in Scorpio. Old contacts or patterns might rear their heads, especially related to identity, self esteem, communication, and/or relationships. Don’t get discouraged if you thought you already left these behind. Life is a spiral journey. Reviewing the old doesn’t mean you’ve failed; it’s just another round of the labyrinth. Holding and wearing crystals also brings part of the deep Earth into your tangible experience. Whether cut or raw, crystals offer powerful grou

GEMINI NORTH NODE: As the transiting North Node continues to move through your North Node sign, happy “accidents” and destiny level connections abound. Pay attention to the open door/closed door policy. Geminis are meant to move from one interest to another. If something feels like banging your head against a wall, then it’s either not for you, or just “not now.” Turning your attention elsewhere will keep things fresh. Practice observing the world with eyes of wonder. Beginner mind carries you towards success and rejuvenation. Of all the North Node signs, yours is the one most likely to stay young at heart. If you catch yourself becoming too serious, spend time with animals, either your own or in the wild. Watch some squirrel antics. Fill a bird feeder with seeds. Learn to appreciate the little things, because they do add up. Tiny moments of delight are sometimes more valuable and important than fireworks and grand pronouncements. Reward yourself for showing up.

CANCER NORTH NODE: November 2020 looks strong for Cancer North Node natives. This month, the Sun, Mercury and Venus all spend time in fellow water sign, Scorpio, lending deep support and flow. Your ability to soothe others’ grief helps you soften harsher energies whirling around the collective. Transmute the urge to steel yourself against the craziness. Random acts of kindness and care are so needed right now. Allow yourself to move beyond expectations of keeping it all together, and instead just listen and follow your heart on what to say or do. Play music that calms and nourishes your heart. Make soup. Curl up under a blanket and watch the Moon. Things will pick up speed after the 13th. Pay attention to friction between what your ego wants and what your soul needs. If it doesn’t feel right, it’s probably not — for you. Prioritize your inner being. Sensitivity brings opportunities for those committed to balanced giving and receiving.

LEO NORTH NODE: If you feel introspective and world weary this month, indulge that urge. The Sun in deep diving Scorpio squares Leo until November 21, when it moves into Leo-friendly Sagittarius. Venus enters Scorpio that same morning, pushing you to look deeper at relationships, self-value, and how you bring beauty into the world. Though difficult, this ongoing Shadow Work offers a return to your natural state of playful innocence. Release any shame, power struggles or feelings of unworthiness. Blessings abound. You just need to let your heart lead the way. Aquarius South Node’s mental chatter and group mindedness dims your light and shuts you down. Frustration and overwhelm are not states to tolerate and repress. They’re signs of something amiss. Look for and expect to find practical solutions to problems. You’ll know the solution’s right if it unexpectedly puts you in the spotlight or moves you forward. Accept and allow this to happen. It’s the natural way for Leo North Node natives.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: November 2020 intensifies both your physical and spiritual experience of life. Spend some time meditating this month, but do so for a set amount of time each day rather than zoning out for extended periods of time. If you return to center and take short time outs, your perspective will shift in potentially dramatic ways. You’ll find greater clarity about day to day details. The Sun, Mercury and Venus all spend time in Scorpio this month, offering you deep and supportive energy towards integration. Virgo North Node natives need to find their own balance between a tendency towards overwhelm and withdrawal, and a calling to serve others in practical and healing ways. The second half of the month could bring swift advancement, like a pulled back rubber band springing forward. Use the first half to move through your preparatory to do list. Staying disciplined now will allow you to remain centered even as the world shifts around and inside of you. Peace in, peace out.

LIBRA NORTH NODE: November 2020 could feel a bit surreal. Your Aries South Node creates impatience and a desire to move forward ASAP. Although it seems slower, you’ll move faster in the end by taking your time now. Mars retrograde in opposing Aries until November 13 might tempt you to rash actions; just remember to pause first. Weigh how any decisions would affect those around you. They matter, too, especially any children or youths in your life. Always look for win-win situations, but this month brings special attention to younger people. You might also receive important insights from someone who seems less experienced. Pay attention! Everyone has value, and you’re meant to recognize and cultivate that value in others. Love goddess Venus rules the sign of Libra. She moves through your sign until November 21, bringing extra blessings to Libra North Node natives. Allow her grace, charm and artistry to beautify your world.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: The Sun’s in your North Node sign until November 21, when Venus enters Scorpio. Finally, some sweet, nurturing energy after a challenging few months! Treat yourself to something sensual and restorative. If you’ve been working too hard, adopt a more balanced policy. You can help, as long as it’s not too taxing. You’ll find greater satisfaction and relief if you face your fears head on. Resist the urge to cling to people or situations that need to change with the changing times. Letting go doesn’t always mean loss. It allows the new to take form. “For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance.” ~ Ecclesiastes 3: 1-4. You feel it all, Scorpio. Good or bad, nothing lasts forever. Accepting this fact is your key to peace.

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Sometimes life seems like “choosing between the lesser of two evils,” but this is really a matter of perspective. You have what it takes to move forward from a place of balance. Even a clouded future offers clues to the Sagittarius North Node native. Your intuition provides a kind of crystal ball that allows you to choose wisely. All it takes is prayer and focus. Too many distractions act like kryptonite. You can get too mental, when your heart and intuition would provide much better guidance. You already have all the elements you need, so stop trying to chase down more skills, more learning. Sometimes “Enough is enough” Focus on gratitude and patience. No, patience doesn’t come easy, but it does pay off for you. Resist the urge to add more commitments and more delays. Getting comfortable with the uncertainty allows you to move forward faster and with clarity. Focus on opportunities to use skills and talents you already have. They will see you through any tight spots or perceived challenges. Always seek a bigger picture, and you will find your Truth.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: This month brings deep messages, especially related to love and relationships: which people bring you out of your Cancer South Node shell? Who drains you? Who uplifts and inspires you to do and be your best? Look for opportunities to step into greater leadership roles. This might mean reducing or shifting family obligations. You can find a new balance that works for you and that others will honor. Fate level events might force things along. There are a lot of strong forces affecting Capricorn North Node natives for this whole month. November’s the last full month where Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will all three be in Capricorn. 2020 as a whole has challenged your North Node sign, but careful attention to new foundations will start really paying dividends this month. Financial gifts or help could also arrive in perfect timing. Pay attention to inner messages, as well as synchronicities. You are here for a reason. When you step up, the Universe supports you.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: This month could challenge your preconceived notions, especially heartfelt ideas of right and wrong. The Sun spends three weeks in Scorpio in November, squaring Aquarius. Mercury returns to Scorpio on November 10, and Venus enters this sign on the 21st, just as the Sun moves into Sagittarius — a more supportive energy for Aquarius North Node natives. When in doubt, err on the side of extra tolerance and curiosity instead of outrage. You will fair better if you ask to recognize and receive the blessings of whatever appears to be happening. Sometimes things don’t turn out the way you think they should, but if you align with your inner guidance and intuition, you’ll find that things turn out for the best. Your North Node sign needs to remember to step back from reactivity. Be prepared for changed outlooks. Pause. Respond instead of reacting. Have faith that new, unseen things are gestating. You can’t see them yet, but strength and success will come the more you can trust and embrace the Highest Good of All.

PISCES NORTH NODE: November 2020’s a big month filled with archetypal forces. Indulge your need for calm and quiet. When you withdraw from the fray, you’re able to shine a light for others. In order to do so, you need to reconnect and recharge through meditation, chants or simple solitude. Yours is a magical North Node sign, able to tap into larger currents in the Fullness of Time. All the elements are there for you: ask for eyes to see and ears to hear. When in doubt, follow your heart instead of listening to too much mental chatter. Keep your feet on the ground in order to fill up with life force energy. When walking Nature, imagine yourself as a tree with very deep roots. Allow your branches to expand far and wide. The more you connect with the Earth, the further you can expand with Spirit. Look for and honor signs of the Divine Masculine this month. You might find this strong, caring male presence in a co-worker, a friend, or through a movie. When you expand your perspective, life can surprise you in marvelous ways.

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 ASTRO WEATHER

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

OCTOBER 2020 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

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.

August North Node Horoscopes are Up!

You can click straight through for your monthly North Node Horoscope. Here’s the August 2020 astro weather report:

August 2020 features potent energies in the Collective. August 3 brings a Full Moon in Aquarius at 11:59 a.m. Eastern US time. This potent opposition of Sun in Leo, Moon in Aquarius forms a T-square with volatile liberator Uranus in Taurus. The energies will affect everyone, but especially those with key placements in 10-13 Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. Any conflicts between head and heart may reach a crisis or catharsis during this Full Moon. You’ll fair best by balancing nurturing, love and stability with your need for freedom.

Depending on your time zone, in the late hours of August 4 or early August 5, Mercury moves from Cancer to Leo. This Messenger brings the element of Air to fiery Leo, and Air fuels Fire. Communication will go faster and further: try to pause before you speak or write. Communicate from the heart.

On August 5, transiting Venus conjuncts the Collective North Node at 28 Gemini. This is a powerful alignment in which the Goddess of Love has a date with Destiny. This date offers course correction in areas of love, romance, beauty, wealth and self-esteem. The Nodes move backwards through the zodiac, so this meeting is brief, yet potent, with lasting effects. The Collective Nodes affect everyone, but this alignment will especially affect anyone with significant placements at 27-29 Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces.

On August 15, Uranus stations direct and moves retrograde for the rest of 2020. This transit offers a slight reprieve from 2020’s revolutionary fervor. Use this time to get clear on intention, because late 2020 and early 2021 will burst forth before you know it! Expect unusual, paradigm shifting revelations from August through the rest of the year. The New Moon on August 18 offers a chance for reset with revised intentions and perhaps a slower, more nurturing pace.

August 22, the Sun enters Virgo, shifting from Fire to Earth. Virgo’s a mental Earth sign, ruled by Mercury, so the final week of August encourages us to ground our thoughts into physical form. Hug a tree, walk barefoot on the grass. Brings those ideas down to Earth.

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

July 2020 North Node Horoscopes Are Up!

I’ll repeat here what I often share:

If you don’t know your North Node sign, Catherine’s got a table on her site to tell you. Those of you who happen to know both your North Node sign and its house will also find value looking up the corresponding sign for that house:

1st House North Node = Aries North Node similarities

2nd House North Node = Taurus North Node similarities

3rd House North Node = Gemini North Node similarities

4th House North Node = Cancer North Node similarities

5th House North Node = Leo North Node similarities

6th House North Node = Virgo North Node similarities

7th House North Node = Libra North Node similarities

8th House North Node = Scorpio North Node similarities

9th House North Node = Sagittarius North Node similarities

10th House North Node = Capricorn North Node similarities

11th House North Node = Aquarius North Node similarities

12th House North Node = Pisces North Node similarities

For example, if you have a Leo North Node in the 12th house, your primary North Node Horoscope would be Leo, but you’ll also find guidance in the Pisces North Node information. The beauty of North Node horoscopes is that you can usually calculate the sign without an exact birth time, and the sign is always super relevant to your life path. As with anything in astrology, though, the more exact time you have, the more subtle information you can glean. (Just a little tip to pull more from these monthly North Node Horoscopes.)

True Colors: February North Node Horoscopes Are Up!

In our second month collaborating, Catherine Grace O’Connell posted my February 18 – March 19, 2020 North Node Horoscopes with a new article on her blog. You can find her article here at “True Colors: Your Fierce Feb North Node Readings.” She shares more of her own personal journey with our North Node work together. If you want to go straight to the ‘scopes, you can find them here. I had so much fun writing these! I incorporated your North Node sign’s color for an accessible connection to what often feels foreign at first — even though it’s your soul’s biggest dream in this lifetime.

If you don’t know your North Node sign, Catherine’s got a table on her site to tell you. Those of you who happen to know both your North Node sign and its house will also find value looking up the corresponding sign for that house:

8th House North Node = Scorpio North Node similarities

9th House North Node = Sagittarius North Node similarities

10th House North Node = Capricorn North Node similarities

11th House North Node = Aquarius North Node similarities

12th House North Node = Pisces North Node similarities

 

For example, if you have a Leo North Node in the 12th house, your primary North Node Horoscope would be Leo, but you’ll also find guidance in the Pisces North Node information. The beauty of North Node horoscopes is that you can usually calculate the sign without an exact birth time, and the sign is always super relevant to your life path. As with anything in astrology, though, the more exact time you have, the more subtle information you can glean. (Just a little tip to pull more from these monthly North Node Horoscopes.)

We’re still aiming to release these on or around the 22nd. Since the Sun moved into Pisces on the 18th, I finished them earlier this month. I wanted to wait for Catherine’s article before posting the February North Node Horoscopes link, because I knew she had some gems to share this time. 🙂
