December 29 Full Moon in Cancer

I need to finish the January 2021 Forecast and North Node Horoscopes, so I’m just re-sharing what I wrote about this Full Moon as part of the December 2020 Forecast. This Full Moon occurs right on my South Node, with the Sun on my North Node, so it’s hitting me in very personal ways. I had a powerful (and weird!) dream this morning, which I’ll share, too, as the symbols seem collective, not just personal.

Here’s what I shared in late November:

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.

And here’s this morning’s dream, as recorded in my dream journal and then typed up with more insights:

12/29/2020
“Birth, Shoes, Deletion, Alien”

“Staring at the barrel of a gun.” “Marjorie Taylor Green.” The gun had a four-inch barrel filled with light. It was actually a birth canal, and birth was imminent.

Needed to go to the store and tried to pack up three pairs of shoes in my square shaped purse so I would have them in case I needed them at the store. One pair was sandals, just like a gold thong attached to a flat sole. The others were little house sneakers — one pair black, the other striped like a rainbow. I had never worn either pair outside the house before. I wasn’t sure why I needed to pack three pairs of shoes in order to go to the store, but I felt I did.

When I got to the store, I was on a large computer and monitor. I accidentally, permanently deleted what I thought were essential files to run the computer. I was worried about this. They were in a pink box at the bottom of the screen, and I deleted these files twice — once in trash and then permanently. I didn’t think the computer could run without them and searched for someone who could get them back. But when they checked, everything was working fine without these files. I thought a video application wasn’t working, but there was a different way to access it.

Then I was observing a “small Asian woman lying on her stomach.” She had an ice pack on her left shoulder and she was naked. Someone removed the ice pack and said she had been stung by a bee. She rolled over, back facing me, and it was her right shoulder that had the “sting.” It was hugely swollen and discolored like a bruise.

I looked closer, and this was not a bee sting. Also the body wasn’t human. It was humanoid but the skin tone was wrong. The style of bruising also not normal human ways of bruising. I realized when I woke up that it was some kind of ET, maybe a Grey alien that they tried to pass off as an Asian woman. There was no butt crack and no genitalia. It looked like an alien in a lab. Unclear why they were icing the left shoulder rather than the right shoulder because the right was the swollen one — shoulder blades lump. Maybe the left went down in size and the damage moved to the right. Not sure.

Look up name meaning for “Marjorie Taylor Green.” I think this is also a politician, but seems like dream meaning because it was describing what was being birthed from the light “gun,” which was really a birth canal. Birth imminent.

If the shoe fits? Three different pairs of shoes in a square purse, plus presumably shoes I was wearing. Four pairs.

Permanently deleted files did not damage computer operation.

Alien body. Not sure why that showed up.

Bible flip calendar verse this morning: “Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.” 2 Corinthians 9:15

Marjorie = Scottish name meaning “pearl”

Taylor = “cutter of the cloth; alterer of garments”

Green = the color green

I just looked up the politician, and last name is spelled Greene. In the dream, it was just a voiceover about the birth canal. I looked up Bible verses about “tailor,” and this came up:

“No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; otherwise the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear results.” Mark 2:21 (it’s also in Matthew 9:16).

There are other verses about sewing but given the imminent birth and permanent deletion details, this verse feels relevant. I’m reminded of Jung’s fascination with the number four — that it symbolizes completion. Any dream with four in it suggests integration of the Self, so a dream with a square purse and four pairs of shoes seems relevant. Also gold, black and rainbow shoes in the purse feel like very symbolic details. I don’t know what color shoes I had on, but I wasn’t barefoot in the dream.

The alien’s skin was kind of translucent, and the bruising was yellow and dark blue. The blue parts looked a little like lightning bolts happening in a slightly yellow sky. You could see blood vessels through the skin, but they weren’t like normal human blood vessel patterns. The alien had a short black haired bob, which might have been a wig. I only saw the back from the left side and then a full back view when the alien rolled on her side. The right shoulder looked gruesome, but there was no sense of urgency in the dream.

I keep thinking of a poem I found last night, but I don’t feel like getting off the BioMat to get it from the file cabinet. It’s about a pearl in the bottom of the sea. I think I might have included the poem in Schizandra, too. Ugh … getting it now:

THE JOURNEY

In the bottom of the bottom of the sea,
There lies an opening. I dove into
That narrow grave and found a cave of
Bubbling light.

Within the cave an oyster shell, within
The shell a pearl — the pearl too big to take
Away, and yet too beautiful by far
To leave behind.

And so, I dove inside of it — myself
Then not-myself: ten trillion particles
Of smiling sand beneath uneasy sea.
We wait here knowingly — a womblike gleam
Beyond our pearl.

Happy Full Moon in Cancer!

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. 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

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 Astro Weather and North Node Horoscopes

Happy Full Moon! It’s conjunct Wounded Healer Chiron, so this one could bring up old wounds and the chance to heal them. (5:05 p.m. Eastern US time.)

I’m going ahead and posting my intro to this month’s North Node Horoscopes, because Catherine Grace O’s site is having another round of hosting issues. Hopefully, the new scopes will be up in the next 24 hours. I’ll confirm when they’re up, but you can also try clicking here in case they get it fixed sooner than I’m back online. This month has some of the most powerful alignments all year!

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.

September 2020 North Node Horoscopes

Catherine Grace O and her web guru are experiencing some technical issues at the website host level, which has delayed posting this month’s individual North Node Horoscopes. Since we’re already into September, I wanted to get the intro/month overview up for all of you. I’ll link to Catherine’s site as soon as the individual ‘scopes are live, hopefully within 24-48 hours. (They’re live now.)

Blessings and Happy Full Moon!

SEPTEMBER 2020 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

September 2020 energies bring a chance to re-balance some of the insanity we’ve seen on the collective stage since March. This potential to find a new balance peaks at Equinox on the 22nd, but the whole month brings supportive energies towards that end.

The month begins with a Full Moon in Pisces at 1:22 a.m. Eastern US time on September 2. Collectively, we can use this time to focus on the bigger cosmic and spiritual picture — that which transcends polarization. A week later, Mars goes Retrograde in Aries and will remain Rx in Aries until November 13. Fire energies will still run high, but perhaps a bit less so. Instead of charging full speed ahead, take time to reassess your goals and desires. A fire can warm and inspire or burn down your house. Choose wisely how you use the Fire Element.

Jupiter turns Direct in Capricorn on September 12, allowing for more optimism and expansion. Jupiter has one more season in conservative Capricorn. Though frustrating, this journey forces us to ground our big ideas and philosophies into the tangible, real world. The New Moon in Virgo on September 17th amplifies this Earth energy. This New Moon makes a harmonious trine with Saturn in Capricorn, bringing a cooler head to some of the wild, fiery emotions since the Leo New Moon in August. As within, so without. This is a chance to hit reset — an earthy, grounded New Moon.

September finishes with Saturn turning Direct at 1:11 a.m. Eastern time on the 29th. This is Saturn’s final pass through Capricorn until he re-enters Aquarius in December. We can best use this final stretch of Saturn in his home sign to improve structures, and ensure strong foundations for whatever new paradigms begin at the end of 2020 and beyond.

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.

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.

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.)

June North Node Horoscopes are Up

Due to the holiday weekend, these got posted a little later than the usual 22nd, but they’re up now.

North Node June Theme!

Eclipse Season begins with a Sagittarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on June 5, followed by a Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse on June 21st, just one day after Summer Solstice. These events will affect everyone on some level. Whether or not it triggers any destiny level activity in your life depends on not only the sign but especially the degree of your North Node.

You can read the rest of the intro and find your individual North Node Horoscope by clicking here. (If you don’t know your North Node sign, Catherine Grace O’s blog has a handy chart to figure it out.)

Normally, I recommend reading both your sign and the sign associated with the house of your North Node (if you know it), but this month has such specific alignments in the sky that your North Node sign kind of trumps its house. You can read both, but the house is less involved in the predictions than it often is. For reference:

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.

Again, this month’s North Node Horoscopes are less house-specific and more sign-specific than usual.

Happy Eclipse Season and Venus Retrograde!

Astrobutterfly ~ Venus Retrograde in Gemini 2020: What to Expect

This is an important article by Astrobutterfly detailing the 40 day Venus Retrograde period that begins tomorrow, May 13, 2020. In its usual uncanny way, this major astrological event hits very key areas of my chart. This past year just keeps hitting exact aspects of my natal and progressed charts. If you have planets at or very near 21, 13, or 5 Gemini, you’ll get direct hits by this relatively rare transit that also amplifies the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0 Aquarius this coming Winter Solstice.

As I mentioned in my May North Node posts, the collective North Node moved into Gemini between May 4-5. It will spend 18 months retrograding through this sign, which means extra destiny level changes for any planets you have in Gemini — or its opposite sign, Sagittarius. Again, this transit will hit me in very big, personal ways, as I have four planets in Gemini, including my Sun. Sometimes it feels like I’m on one of those automatic walkways in the airport … just carried along by these mega-astro-events.

In any case, if you have planets in 21, 13, or 5 Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces, then this Venus Rx will affect you in stronger ways — especially if those planets include your own Venus or Moon, or the angles of your chart. Those with planets at or near these degrees in other Air signs (Aquarius, Libra) will receive a Venusian uplift via supportive Trine energy. Even if you don’t have planets or angles at these degrees, you’ll experience changes just by being here now as part of the collective. Here’s Astrobutterfly’s comprehensive post.

And here’s me, just saying hi from sunny Kalamazoo:

Enjoy the journey!

Happy New Moon, Happy Earth Day and North Node Horoscopes are Up!

Wishing everyone a Happy New Moon and a Happy Earth Day! For me, every day is Earth Day, but it’s nice to give our Mama some extra love on her Earth Day!

Tonight we have a potent New Moon in Taurus, within three degrees of volatile, liberating Uranus in Taurus. The New Moon exactly conjuncts my own Part of Fortune (happy spot in the chart) and trines my Ascendant, so I’m curious to see what this Uranian Moon activates in my own life.

Meanwhile, new North Node Horoscopes are up. Since I write these for the coming astrological month, we decided to call these “May North Node Horoscopes” even though it’s April. It just seems to make more sense going forward.

I’ll repeat here what I share each month:

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.)
