Cancer 22 Jun - 22 Jul
The Moon has two Nodes, the North
Node and the South Node. The Nodes
form an axis and are always opposite one
another in the zodiac. The Moon’s Nodes are
important in astrology because when a new or
full Moon falls near one of the Nodes, a solar or
lunar eclipse occurs and eclipses are considered potent
astrological indicators of change. There are two eclipse seasons a year, roughly 6 months apart, each lasting approximately 6 weeks. The eclipse activity in late winter and early spring and again 6 months later falls across the Leo Aquarius axis. The North Node of the Moon will be in Leo until November 2018 and so therefore the South Node will be in the sign opposite Leo, Aquarius, until November too. The influence of the North Node is considered beneficial and acts like a sign post, pointing to an area to develop, exploit and where favourable opportunities await you, a direction to pursue.
The South Node represents issues and areas of your life which need to be released or relinquished, where you need to let go. Since Leo is the money zone of your solar chart, Aquarius, the sign opposite, is associated with the resources, financial and otherwise, of others. The North Node is emphasising the need for you to develop your own resources, to become more financially independent and if necessary, to ask to be better rewarded for your time, energy and talents. The South Node’s position in Aquarius suggest you’d benefit by simplifying and reducing your financial involvement and commitments to others, reducing your debts and making the most of what you’ve got. If you do, you’ll reap the benefits later when you’ll be in a stronger and less restricted position.
