Leave the past behind and head towards your true north…… Is the message of the Nodes. Dreams into reality, through the everyday experiences and expressions of Virgo earthly and heavenly touch, as the Nodes change signs, south into Pisces, north into Virgo.
North and South Nodes (karma, past lives) of the moon are points where the Moon’s orbit intersect the plane of the ecliptic ( the apparent annual path of the sun in the heavens).
North Node represents your future, gain, your future self, where you are headed, this can feel and be unfamiliar to you. You are learning, developing this part of yourself, the challenges you must work through to become whole in this lifetime. You can and will grow spiritually, this is your evolution of soul, a more fulfilling path. It can feel uncomfortable and you will often fall back onto the old ways of doing and being. Which is the south node.
South Node represents your past, past lives, these experiences and qualities come naturally to you, you know them very well and do them easily and you tend to want to stay here, habit patterns that you fall into without thinking, and instinctive behaviors. The South Node can be a point of undoing, your Achilles heel, will keep you in the same place, unless you develop and head for the North Node experiences and qualities. Consciously working on the qualities of the North Node can bring you to true happiness and fulfillment, however it can be uncomfortable, If you overemphasize and fall back on the qualities of our South Node, you may have a difficult time feeling personally satisfied and successful.
Sometimes I view this as a place to head to in a chart, the qualities of the north node can help you embrace your life, a way of releasing your past (south) habits, patterns. They are opposite on the chart, so what you are trying to do? is move your intentions, actions, being towards the north node, you all have this is in your birth chart, it’s not easy as this is unfamiliar territory.
My north node is in Cancer (feelings), sensitive, flow, movement, slow and relaxed, comfort, nurturing, security, so, my south is in Capricorn (psychical security, detached emotions, money, work orientated) and I have to say for a good part of my life I was very Capricorn, cool, detached, aloof, work focused, to the point and some would say harsh or cold….. they we’re right. This way of being was not working for me, not in relationships, work, life. Life then tosses a few painful experiences at you, so, of course I then was faced with All of my emotions, feelings and sensitivities, Gotta say I did not like it! So, what’s a girl to do? I accepted my feelings, Yes…… Helen you have them, I was in despair (God, more like drowning) for a while and I struggled with them, it was i long process to get out of the emotional place I had got myself into.
The trick is now i know I am sensitive, have feelings, (many of them) and i now check in, on how i am feeling, and this of course has led to be more compassionate towards others feeling. When i listen and act on feeling, life is better, i do gain something rewarding in my life. And yes i still sometimes fall back into the Capricorn me as i know it so well, but now i know where i am at and what I am doing, I use my feelings, emotions and body to guide me and direct me.
Having been in Aries and Libra from February 2014 – November 2015.
Aries, the individual expression – Libra, balance, relationship/partnership with others, how you are in them, how do you assert yourself with others, do you lose yourself or do you push your way on to others, of course the trick here was balance, fairness, listening, harmonizing, doing what’s good for ALL, but somehow still maintaining your true essence without losing it among everyone else.
Relationships may have been interesting, to the say the very least, you may also have had a very good look at yourself and at other people and how they play. This is the axis of projection and relating, to keep things fair, some of you may have given yourself away. Yes, some of you may also have found yourself.
Now the Nodes move into PISCES (south, past), Virgo (north, future) here you have a chance for some healing and getting real again, This axis involves, dreams and reality, the dream, water, imagination, to dissolve boundaries, to float away and escape, that’s Pisces – VIRGO, practical, details, logical thinking, plans, lists, work, focus, healing, earth, cleaning, real and reality.
You have a chance to get real, you’ve had a good look at yourself, thanks to Saturn in Scorpio, Jupiter in Virgo, you’ve had a chance to change, grow, release, accept, move, face some fears, probably a lot of fears, here you are now getting real, coping with reality, out of the bubble, accept who you really are and what your like. Clean up time, dust yourself off, face Virgo’s North Node.
The point to work with spirit, for humanity, we are all in this together, whether you like it or not. Virgo’s role is to heal, and help, to use her earthy, practical, and logical approach to heal you first and then you can heal others through the work you do. Chiron is linked to Virgo, another healer, helping you to heal your wounds and humanity’s wound.
Have the dream, imagination of Pisces, don’t run away from the reality, you could get lost in the void or abyss, this is not the time to be doing that, get of the mountain top, look up from your belly button, get yourself awake, as now you have to take the practical, realistic approach of living a blissful life, this may require some work as Virgo is the essence of daily work, patience, goals, a plan plus logical thinking, details and hands on work.
Collectively, we are all going to be doing this, you start with yourself first, clean yourself up, get real with you, be honest, look at what area’s you can start with, what steps can you take/make for change to happen, to make it a happier and healthy life. Because the more you work on, clean up, get honest with, you then can move about the world and share this and this is part of the cleaning process for us all. Virgo is a very humbling sign as they can see the flaws in themselves (don’t be critical or picky) and that can turn into compassion and empathy not only for themselves but for all of humanity. Not in the victim or martyr roles this no longer works, there’s no blame or shame, it’s healing work to become whole.
Beautiful, perfect work (world) you can create, it may be a humbling experience to see what you can create, integrate it into the world.
Virgo – Pisces is also a very healing time, both of these relate to healing, wholeness and wellness. Let’s keep Pisces’s Faith as you are going to be needing a lot of that.
With the world as it is today, so much suffering, pain, loss, death, fear and hatred, it may seem like a difficult task, the nodes movement to Virgo may help to start the process of doing the work to clean up the mess we have created so far. Here’s to Virgo working her everyday magic!
Look at you birth chart, check out where Virgo/Pisces is and see what house this is taking place for you. As these two will stay here for around 18-19 months.
