Virgo 23 Aug - 22 Sep
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 then 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.
Leo represents one of the more complex areas of your solar chart and it is associated with, for you, places of peace and rest, where you unplug and take time out and in the process create the space for the new to enter your life. The South Node is an area of release, where you need to let go, untangle and unburden yourself. Since Aquarius is the area of your solar chart associated with your chores, day-to-day routine and work, the message seems to be for you to take time out from the daily grind to retreat and rest, to escape for a while, whether into the arms of nature, a spiritual activity or mystical place. Where work is concerned, less is more and so try to reduce not increase your workload, however tempting it may appear in the short-term since it may leave you feeling restricted, exhausted or like you’re running round in circles.
