CHANGING OF THE GUARD:NODES Shift

The real secret behind the nodes is to be found more at their departure from a sign than at their entrance. As the north node in South node now leave the signs of Leo and Aquarius respectively in November 2018 we solve some questions:
Have we learned to find a balance between escape and recapture?
Commitment to intimacy and insistence on freedom?
Domination and equality for all? Have we been mature enough to stick with love and intimacy and not run away from the true source of our strength?

Eclipses of 2017-2018

Total lunar eclipse:

good for people with endurance, integrity and a true heart, bad-humbling for any big shot who thinks he or she is entitled to anything.

The Leo Aquarius node eclipse:

Is it about a Runaway? Or a Captive?

It’s actually collusion in a story of kidnapping. Where an effort to escape is consistently foiled, only it’s not a kidnapping and it’s not exactly an escape.

The Leo-Aquarius axis, activated in late August 2017, revealed how much we all need intimacy on a deep emotional level, whether it’s appropriate or not, whether we can handle it or not.

Here comes the other side of it: the reaction to the tyrannical control a nurturing figure can exercise over other human beings without their fighting back and demanding freedom.

Politically it’s a rebellious attempt to wrench power away from a powerful centralized authority figure who promises security in return for unflinching loyalty, but whose demands are seen as overbearing and even unlawful.

On a personal basis this is a relationship where both parties want a serious commitment and both want also the liberty to come and go as they damned please. But usually each takes a polarizing role.  The Sun, Venus, and South Node in Aquarius breaks away from the Moon, Ceres, and North Node in Leo.

Or tries to.

When one feels constrained, trapped, taken over, and over- protected, there’s definitely a feeling of needing air to breathe and distance to function freely.

The other party has to work harder to protect, but not strangle, guide, but not control, and to provide stability and flow without swelling up with authoritarian entitlement. There’s a split that can be healed through real life communication.

Remember, that the one who leaves—or tries to, is often carrying out the unexpressed or unconscious wishes of the more passive party.

As astrology students, we have to acknowledge that in every instance of human interaction, every major encounter, we are brought together by forces we often do not understand—-sometimes for purposes we have difficulty accepting.

Where the source of power is cut off from, in what appears to be a massive outage or broken circuit, needs to be plugged back in, again.

We have to start there to discuss the nature of all relationships during the eclipse pattern of 2017-18.

This is a particularly unusual and unexpected encounter of intense passion and camaraderie, probably followed by a rapid separation. This is sometimes called a quickie, because of the intense beginning in the sudden end.

Because it is on the nodes of Neptune exactly,  if you meet a new stranger around this eclipse you feel yourself carried forward on a vibrating force toward someone exactly on your same wavelength, astonishingly so. It can be a stunning compatibility, like two strings of a violin hovering on the same beautiful note. You are psychically and rationally both tuned in on a love/friendship bond that blossoms overnight like a strange alien flower, blooming briefly to an unheard melody. And then the wave fades away, proving once again it is right to love and enjoy, but never hang on.

 

Aries Aries Rising

You sure love your freedom. As well you should. And wow does it bug you to have somebody breathing down your neck all the time. If you’ve got kids, however, then there are always headaches. That’s what love is all about I suppose. Being able to forgo your liberty to be present for those you care about, who also need the kind of nurturing only you can provide. Like now.

Taurus Taurus Rising

Can you believe how much you’ve got going on at home that demanding your attention? There’s so much work to do just to keep the place together, not to mention the people who need your absolute attention. You have a rich domestic life with family concerns. Such demand forces you to let some professional options go. It’s easy to say job is just a job, but whether you’re working or not, you still do not want any interference from upstairs to threaten your security. So if you can manage to stay out of politics, just go back into the kitchen and make something from scratch. You’ll be better off.

Gemini Gemini Rising

What can you say when there’s nothing to say? That seems to be the situation these days. When the people around you do not have either the smarts or the information to see or recognize bigger truths, there’s not much more to discuss in the matter. Especially if you said it all 1 million times, at least it’s a connection. At this time it’s certainly healthy to keep in touch with siblings even if it’s on the most absurd and superficial level. Even if you can’t be deep, you can be loving, can’t you?

Cancer Cancer Rising

The topic of this eclipse: the equitable distribution of wealth. While you’re talking about rich people and taxes, the haves and have not‘s or the dealings in your own world. Sometimes money is used it as sexual bribery even in the most normal people. I think it’s also called something like quid pro quo, which means you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours. At such moments, however, it’s tough not to feel taken advantage of sometimes.

Leo Leo Rising

We all need each other – – that’s a given. But, when we become too dependent on others we become weak and powerless. We were afraid to stand on our own make decisions and move ahead bravely. The other side of it complicates the whole deal if you get paranoid about being controlled or dropped or abandoned, you’ll push relationships over the side of the boat and then have to figure out how to sail home all by your lonesome. We all need each other, but…

Virgo Virgo Rising

You can work your buns off, squeeze veggies till they scream, get off all sugar, but the secret lies in a much more private setting. There you will experience what true nurturing is all about. By all means, continue your regime of health and fitness, but always remember that well-being comes from not only from the body, but from the soul as well.

Libra Libra Rising

Newsflash: you do not, I repeat, you do not have to solve everybody’s problems and split yourself into two over it either. If you can seriously get that into your head, you will not be torn apart by the insoluble questions between loved ones and friends. It’s your issue anyway with your own kids. Isn’t it strange though, how some Libra’s are closer to somebody else’s children than their own. Sometimes you have to let your own go and turn to strangers.

Scorpio Scorpio Rising

It takes a lot to get you out of bed these days, out of the house and out of your rut. You have to leave home to feel the appreciation of the crowd and of your special and incomparable token creativity. Still you can’t wait to take off your shoes and play house. It’s getting old, however, pretending you’re being truly entertained where you live.

Sometimes you have to be the most motherly and fatherly at the same time. That’s because right now you have to balance your career and your personal life.

Sagittarius and Rising

Open your mind. Avoid skitzy squabbles, half truths, truncated or distorted versions of who did what to whom. It’s too easy for us to squeeze the truth until it screams. It’s easy to get lost in a chaotic he said she said discussion, unless you rise above it all, step away and above the howling squall, and let your respect for a higher truth speak for you.

Capricorn and Rising

According to stereotypes it’s not the Capricorn way. Right now it pays to be generous thanks to the north note of the moon passing through your 8th house. Art and dedication must be the main thrust of all your efforts at this time and sincerity of passion, not commercialism. Do whatever you want for love and the money will come. It’s not about materialism now, this is the moment you show your sincere dedication and benefits will be bestowed upon you. If appropriate believe it or not no matter how old you feel, or harried or shut down, you feel, it can be a sexually active experience.

Aquarius Aquarius Rising

You want to keep control now. You have to have control now. You cannot let go of control now. Your ego depends on it. For this brief moment in time and space, however, no matter how it freaks you out or makes you feel frustrated, you should really be willing to except help from others who possess the strength and power to support you. Your talents remain even if goals seem to be slipping away for now. The important element in your life is the ability to partner up and lean, for just a while, on someone else’s shoulder.

Pisces Pisces Rising

Granted I know you’re tired. There are days when you are hovering on the edge. But never fear. It would be too easy just to say, oh the hell with it. I was born on a bad day. The universe has it in for me. Secret enemies are trying to bring me down. That’s not you, but that’s what people think Pisces think. What I love about your sign is your ability to clean up your act, put on a new face, and work like hell to prove you still got what it takes to keep that engine running

In a committed relationship, the need for intimacy AND freedom is well-served by keeping a pair of tango shoes next to your running shoes. 😉
