Leo 23 Jul - 22 Aug
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. One of the
reasons the Moon’s Nodes are considered
important in astrology is 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, transformation and even
upheaval. There are two eclipse seasons a year, roughly 6 months apart and each lasting approximately 6 weeks. With most of the eclipse activity in late winter and early spring and again 6 months later occurring across the Leo Aquarius axis, you’ll be affected more than most by eclipse activity in 2018.
The current eclipse season gets underway with the North Node of the Moon in Leo, your Sun sign and the South Node, which is always opposite the North Node, in your opposite sign of Aquarius, along with Venus, the Sun and Mercury. Since Aquarius is the area of your solar chart associated with your dealings with others, partnerships, relationships and other people in general, the winter and early spring could turn out to be an important time for personal and professional relationships. Astrologically, the North Node is an area to develop, it is oriented to the future and is to be embraced. The South Node by contrast is associated with the past, where we’re coming from and is a place of release, where we need to let go, perhaps because we’ve become too comfortable, a creature of habit or even stuck in a rut.
The presence of the North Node in Leo should also correspond with favourable developments in your personal life. However, to make the most of the astrological weather you need to go with the flow, not swim against the tide. In practice, this suggests you should put yourself and your agenda forward, first and foremost. This is not a time to be bashful when opportunity, romance or Lady Luck comes calling. This is the time make the most off opportunities to take greater control of your destiny and steer your life in the direction that promises to offer you the most satisfaction and fulfilment. With the South Node in your opposite sign of Aquarius, be prepared to let go of anyone or anything that is not contributing to your life.
