North Node in Taurus 1/18/22

Hello,

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.

North Node in Leo 5/9/17-11/6/18, or YAS QUEEN

Hi folks,

This is one that I have been sitting on since last May. Partially because it’s hard to explain and partially because I was nervous about how it would all turn out since I’m a Leo:)¬†So new year, barreling toward this New Capricorn Moon, making me get some ish done.

The nodes of the moon are not an actual place, but basically a pair of moving coordinates in outer space. As the earth revolves around the sun, the moon revolves around the earth. The place where those two orbits intersect are the moon’s nodes. The place where the moon passes in front of the earth is the North Node, called the “head of the dragon” by the ancients. And the “tail of the dragon,” or South Node, is where the moon’s orbit passes behind the orbit of the earth.

The nodes are always exactly opposite each other, so right now the South Node is in Aquarius. The nodes also go in reverse of the motion of the planets. So on the tropical zodiac chart, the Sun and Moon and everything else revolve counterclockwise-they move through the signs from Aries to Pisces. So this fall, the North Node won’t shift from Leo to Virgo, but from Leo to the preceding sign of Cancer, moving clockwise through the chart.

In astrology, the nodes represent our destiny, our karmic contracts, what we are here to learn in this life. nbd, amirite? They suggest that we’ve been here and have carried things with us from prior incarnations that must be dealt with in this one.

The South Node is where we have been before. This placement in our charts helps us to understand things that come second nature to us, what we already know. In past lives, we were very much ingrained in the energy of the South Node and probably demonstrate many attributes of the sign (Maybe why some folks think they don’t sound like their newspaper horoscope?). I’ve heard it described as the comfort zone-it’s how we know how to operate. If we stay embedded in the qualities of our south node for too long, however, we fail to progress. We stop learning, we never leave the nest as it were, we don’t tap into what this life has to offer us. In our earlier life, we must first become aware of, and then master the lessons of our intrinsic nature.

When we have learned those lessons, it is then we begin to unlock the secrets of the North Node. I’ve heard people say that you don’t even really start messing with it til after your Saturn Return (around the age of 30). The North Node is what we are here to be in this life. It’s what we don’t already know, though-it’s outside of that comfort zone. It requires conscious effort to develop it, it doesn’t just happen. When we move into the North Node, we shine, we grow, we kick ass and take no names.

Leo is the sign of kingly or personal power, where fun and games take center stage. The inner child is a reference to this sign, as well as relationships with children. Leo is a fire sign, denoting spiritual energy, passion, and initiative. It’s a fixed-sign, meaning that it saves and stores energy like a magnet. The heart and spine are the parts of the body where Leo metaphorically operates, the two being linked to the Lion’s motto “I will” (Like I named my blog, get it?). Creativity and expression are a part of Leo’s association with the 5th House, where we do things for our own pleasure.

Conversely, its opposite sign of Aquarius is all about people power, where wishes and dreams become fulfilled. Aquarius is about how we all share, the ways in which we connect, and our individuality within the masses. Aquarius is like the circulatory system, carrying the blood through the whole body-or like the ankles and shins running the message to all the people.

SO. This year’s movement of the North Node through Leo is asking you WHAT KIND OF KING OR QUEEN WILL YOU BE? The energy is about moving into the foreign territory of being a leader through personal example. We know how to be a part of a group, and now we need to have the People in mind as we creatively use our personal power toward our own goals. If we have mastered the lessons of South Node Aquarius, we will be the kind of ruler that has the people’s interests at heart already. This is literally the year to FOLLOW YOUR HEART. It will be scary and seem foreign, but pushing for that growth is how we keep expanding those horizons. It might feel at times like you are doing things alone, but that’s part of the lesson, too-taking accountability¬†for your own intentions and actions. It’s your life-hold yourself responsible for who you are going to be and where you are going to go. Be the boss.

Things are pretty tense in the world right now, but a part of what we have to teach ourselves during this time is to HAVE FUN. We have to seek it out and hunt it down like lions on the prowl…or kittie cats, or something. Jupiter in Scorpio is all about transformation this year, bringing a lot of painful things to the surface, with intense emotion. We’ve spent a lot of energy merging forces with others, or conversely, letting go of connections. It’s also kind of a big deal that under the sign of the king, Saturn shifted into Capricorn, which is about public life, career, and legacy. We have transitioned from a fiery, idea-driven time to the time where we face the consequences of those ideas. The energy is heavy, and yet we must learn to open our hearts and let our inner children play. There’s such a focus on the collective now, that it’s up to us to make sure that our personal fun tanks stay filled. Those fun tanks are the key to knowing if we’re on the right track this year. If they aren’t staying full, it’s time to check in and reassess.

I wanna make some kind of snarky comment about media personalities trying to act like kings, but that would be gauche. And too easy.

Here’s a chart I drew for the upcoming New Moon. Part of why I’m writing this North Node update now is that I think the upcoming month or so will be a crucial time for us to be aware of on our personal journey through North Node Leo.

New Moon in Cap Chart 2018

So you can see the North Node in the bottom right of the picture at 14 degrees of Leo. Its opposite sign is Aquarius (wavy lines symbol, not a great hand-drawn chart). Between the New Capricorn Moon on 1/16 and the New Aquarius Moon on 2/15, a bunch of those planets will pass through the South Node in Aquarius-Venus 1/30, Mercury 2/9, Sun 2/14. This means they will be in opposition to the north node. I think that during this time there will be some kind of crisis, making us aware of whether or not we are in line with our personal goals. We may be complacent as the planets pass through the South Node, relying too heavily on others or blaming others for our shortcomings. This next lunar cycle will be the place where we saw our plans materialize or fall apart. Mars won’t oppose the North Node til 6/8-10. So if we are ready now, the final push of this node cycle this summer should be easy. Later this fall the priorities change as the North Node shifts into Cancer, so make sure you get your heart right now-especially over the next month or so. Picking up momentum later will be hard.

Hope you are having a wonderful year developing your kingdoms. I personally have changed up a bunch of things and thrown myself off a cliff following my heart. Thanks for joining me on my journey.

Cheers,

Will
