A Significant Shift- North and South Nodes Move into Aries and Libra

A significant astrological change is happening.

As an evolutionary astrologer, I work closely with what is known as the north and south nodes of the moon. Different to planets and their significance in your astrological chart, the nodes are the points where the moon crosses the ecliptic, which in astrology is our earth-based view of the apparent path that the sun takes. In evolutionary astrology, we focus deeply on the sign, house and aspects to the nodes on a deep soul evolutionary and collective level.

The signs that the nodes are in are always in opposition and change about every 18 months, and they are about to change now.

On the 17th, the Nodes will move out of the signs Taurus and Scorpio and into Aries and Libra, where they will be until January 2025.

On a personal level, if you have planets, key points such as the ascendant or midheaven or indeed your north and south nodes in these signs the impact will be significant on an evolutionary and soul level. To really understand the impact, however requires a deep dive into your personal chart, ideally with a professional evolutionary astrologer.

I have however written a little about what Transiting North Node through the houses may mean for you. If you know which house Aries falls in, or your rising sign, check it out below.

The South Node is an indicator of evolutionary, karmic or soul-based energy that we have brought in with us in this lifetime, it often indicates an area which we have an innate ‘knowing’ skills, talents or hang ups, a past life cellular memory where we may energetically carry ‘ stuff’ from a past life. Exploring the South Node in an evolutionary astrology reading may uncover some deep understanding of your life by giving you insight and making you conscious of past life residue that may still impact your present life.

The North Node on the other hand points to where we need to move toward in this life to evolve from our past into our present and soul direction. The sign, house and placement highlight what we need to activate and move toward consciously. However, it may not feel innate or natural to us as this is what we are ‘learning’ in this lifetime.

The South and the North Nodes are always in opposite signs and now we begin a new and significant shift into the North Node being in Aries and the South Node being in Libra.

So, what will this mean on a collective level?

Many theories are floating around about the possible impact of the nodes moving into the duality of self and other. Aries, as the first sign of the Zodiac, is self-focused, ruled by Mars; it is also associated with the heroes’ journey, embarking upon and starting something new, and exploring new horizons. To do what Aries energy needs to do, to find inner-courage and to take action, the sense of self needs to be strong. Freedom and independence are keys for this sign.

In opposition is Libra, ruled by Venus and turning away from the focus on the self to focus on the ‘other’ . Partnerships, including business and intimate partnerships, are Libran territory.

Libran energy is other focused. This is the part of ourselves that needs others, wants to relate but also find harmony, balance and peace, sometimes at the cost of our sense of self. Libra energy is very good at putting others first.

With the Nodes traversing both of these signs, themes of the self vs. the other may surface.

This energy asks of us on a collective level to find balance between self-focus and other focus, find ways to help others, see different perspectives and deeply understand others but not lose our sense of self in the process.

Questions and themes around where we may over-compromise in an effort to keep the peace will come to the surface. We may be more challenged to find and be true to our real, most authentic selves, including expressing ideas and opinions others may not like. I feel collectively this will be an interesting time regarding free speech, political correctness and how far we want to take these issues as a society.

The Aries Libra axis may offer us all an opportunity not to let the opinions of others cripple us. As always, being in duality it is all about finding balance, balance between the self and the other, finding personal courage and self-expression but also focusing on not harming others in the process. Libra always in opposition to Aries, is about playing fair.

Collectively we may also see the pace of life pick up and a feeling as though we need to move, act, initiate, and break new ground. The North Node in Aries may bring with it fast innovation and some 'out there' ideas but we may feel things are moving much faster than we would like them to. This may be especially true regarding technology when Pluto moves back into Aries.

Where Aries falls in your chart is the area of life that will be activated for the next 18 months that asks you to take assertive action to start something new.
