Breaking down the barriers, the only way through is with kindness…..feeling every little heartfelt moment at a time.
I have the Cancer/ Capricorn Nodes in my birth chart, and I have to say, when I first learnt about the Nodes, the key to work through some karma, the place to head towards I was excited, until I realised I would have to discover and enter the world of my feelings, emotions, being vulnerable and then I just got scared, what is this place?, I asked myself. Then of course I felt them ALL!
Over time of course it gets easier, I did feel more comfortable with them, I did settle into them, I still long for the good old days when I was too busy to feel, it’s always going to feel better to me if I don’t have to feel/care and don’t have to connect, let something in. Because if you stop for long enough, let all of the feelings in, it kinda creates a mashup of madness, hysteria, love and joy, it’s one big melting pot.
Nodes of fate, destiny and karma, enter into cardinal signs of Cancer (North) and Capricorn (south), the Nodes are re-directors. With them changing into Cancer/Capricorn you’re headed for the Cancer nodal axis to help you on the path.
Feeling! yes, feelings are going to be a major player in this one, you gotta feel them, follow the path that feels right, follow your heart. It’s less about the “shoulds”, doing or being task or goal oriented, this is still part of it, of course but now your compass is attached to the feeling zone to direct you. This may make you uncomfortable particularly if you hate doing that job, or if you just cannot stand that thing or person, if you’re just not “feeling it” anymore this is where you are going to get really uncomfortable and tired.
Sometimes you can forget who you are! with all the working, achieving and doing that you do. Helps you to focus on the external world, and to disconnect from self.
The way forward is through the inner world of self, feeling, getting back in touch with you. This is where the true security lies, being emotionally self-reliant, to be able to bend and flow, with whatever life brings your way.
So when your asked how are you feeling, now is a good time to know.
You’re leaving behind a place you know well, the South Node (Capricorn) it’s the physical, material, financial realms, the work you do, task orientated, the goals you set for yourself, the rules, being the authority, structures and guidelines, patriarchy, the old ways of doing, being detached, cold and aloof. These are all still important, however it’s now time to put a little feeling, love, kindness and care into all that you do…..you can loosen up.
South Nodes deal with karma…..that word! Past karma, past lives, the yesterdays of your life. What you need to sort out this life. This is also familiar territory, you know well, very easy to stay with what you know.
The North Node is the future, possibility of making changes. Not so familiar path that’s uncomfortable to you, especially for the work alcoholic, the doer, likes the rules or lives a rigid structured life, in Cancer/Capricorn, which is what you will be working with here.
North Node is what you gotta do, to master the South, to sort this out. And like I said earlier it’s about feelings, self-care, having a rest, relaxing a little or even a lot.
So, if you’re tired, take a rest.
Stop with the “shoulds”
Take the time to nurture yourself.
If you’re going to fast, slow it down, stop and smell the flowers along the way.
Sit with your feelings.
Ask yourself, how safe, secure, supported and protected do you feel.
