The North Node will shift from Gemini into Taurus at 11.20am MST 1/18/22, and transit the sign until shifting into Aries at 1.46pm MDT on 7/17/23.
Here’s a list of the times the North Node has been in Taurus during the last century:
- 1/18/22 – 7/17/23
- 4/13/03 – 12/26/04
- 9/11/84 – 4/6/86
- 2/9/66 – 8/19/67
- 8/2/47 – 1/25/49
- 12/28/28 – 7/7/30
- 3/23/10 – 12/7/11
Taurus is the sign of Value. And when the North Node is in a sign, that’s what we are in the process of learning. Common themes in history looking back on these dates include technological/medical breakthroughs, labor strikes and pay movements, human and civil rights milestones, the formation and dissolution of countries (borders in particular), as well as record-breaking natural disasters.
Coming from the mutable air node of Gemini, or changeable information, the Taurus North Node requires stability and concrete development. In this fixed earth sign, things that have been ideas until now can become a product or policy. Breakthroughs in genetics have heralded the last recurrences of this transit, with the Human Genome Project in 2003 and DNA “finger printing” in the 80s with public knowledge of the AIDS crisis. Pluto was discovered while the North Node was in Taurus, as well as neon lighting and superconductivity. Color TV and Talkies were each developed in their respective eras, developments of past transits from Gemini communication to Taurus creation North Node.
North Node in Taurus also brings social and political developments. It seems to me like these times are eras of progressive change and conservative reaction. We’re already looking at huge labor strikes as we approach the eclipses changing on the 19th, like the Coal Miners’ Strike in the 80s. Civil rights advances such as Loving v Virginia and Shelley v Kramer happened in their respective times during Taurus North Node. The Black Panthers were established during this transit. The Geneva Convention was established around the time of Gandhi’s 200-mile march. While in America the Freedom of Information Act was being established, China was beginning its Cultural Revolution. In an earlier time, America was facing the HUAC Blacklist, and in an earlier time the Motion Picture Code was established. In the early 20th century, the Standard Oil Antitrust suits broke up monopolies (Jims the camera).
This could really be true of any time, but I noticed a lot of record-breaking natural disasters happening during the North Node in Taurus. Also things like aircraft and spacecraft explosions. Heat waves, earthquakes, typhoons, you name it. The Great Fire of 1910 destroyed the Pacific Northwest, basically. The Earth sign of Taurus bout to explode some South Node Scorpio on our asses.
There’s also memorialization that happens during this time. About a hundred years ago, the Academy Awards were established under this influence. The Titanic was launched during this time. Kwanzaa was created during this time. We want to name things in definition during this transit, unlike the flighty and perhaps misleading Gemini North Node transit.
Countries also form or dissolve under this influence, notably India gaining independence from Britain around the same time as Israel is established as a state.
