They will travel through Leo/Aquarius until Nov./2018, showing us where we can stuck in the muck and what areas of life/world can be transcended by practicing the qualities of the North Node.
These Nodes are points in space where the Moon crosses the Ecliptic. The North Node is ascending and is called, the Dragons Head and the South Node is descending and is called the Dragons tail. In Sanskrit, they are called,"chaya grahas", which means, Shadow Planets.
Together they form an axis of destiny and point to your life purpose. The Sign your South Node falls (ie. Gemini or Libra etc.) and the House(area of life expression/experience) reveals talents, gifts that you have accumulated over many life-times. But, it is also where your habitual patterns are found and where we can feel trapped etc. The North Node is encoded with our 'Soul's' purpose. It's essence is the aspirational you! There is much more to these Nodes and they make-up a good part of my,'Transcend' and 'Release and Reveal' workshops.
I could fill a few pages of wiggley air-words- of how we have not really worked well with the past Virgo/Pisces Nodes but let's look at our current Dragon.
South Node Aquarius is encoded with brilliance. Okay, so that's good. Right? Yes, but we will have to be mindful that we do not crown the brain/intellect and forget Heart. The South Node Aquarius works well in groups. Good again, right? Yes, but we have to be careful we do not fall into a great, big heap of 'group think.'
The South Node has its gifts but it is also a trap. It is very compelling and once in the energy of the South Node, it can be challenging to pull out. We take the gifts of South Node Aquarius: group co-operation, social/global minded, science and we take it straight to the Dragon's head, the North Node in Leo. Heart, play, taking risks, treating everyone with dignity, acting with a sense of pride, nobility.
Yes, we run the risk of emotional detachment and an over-concern with brain at expense of heart. Yes, during these times it may be really hard to maintain and grow Heart but the North Node has a promise. Lead with a play-full heart and you will align with purpose. Life will be easier and you may find this Dragon has been hiding some fascinating treasures!
