The connection between the Nodal (North Node/South Node) Axis & deep Pluto is a key influence in 2019. Why? Well, the North Node returned to Cancer last November 7th, and in turn the South Node to Capricorn. Unlike all other influences, the Nodal Axis as they are known, move in an anti-clockwise or inverted direction and meet with Pluto within a 3 degree orb or gap from now until the May 2nd 2019.
The North Node, is where the Moon crosses the Ecliptic from south to north at the time of our birth. It is said to represent our future karma whereas the South Node, which directly opposes it, our subconscious, the things we brought into this world and where we often feel at our most comfortable. These are active in our Natal Horoscopes, our Secondary Progressions or Directions for the whole or our lives.
However, equally, there is the ongoing influence of the Transiting Nodes or Nodal Axis, and from 24th of March the North Node reverses into 23 degrees Cancer, opposing Pluto, which is 21 degrees Capricorn. This 2 degree gap is very close, and certain to have a major impact and this will be especially so if they impact on any part of your personal horoscope, as opposed to just your zodiac sign.
But first, what does the North Node’s journey through Cancer represent? Well, broadly, opportunity. The North Node has a kind of mini Jupiterian impact, in that it gives us a sense of possibilities and growth but we have to challenge ourselves to reach the prize. In the sign of Cancer, anything to do with nurture, good management of resources and security have come sharper into focus. It may be little coincidence that the state of our oceans and waterways, and the proliferation of plastics within, are also coming more frequently to the fore.
Cancer represents home, family, safety, protection and these are principles are equally related to the Moon which is also the ruler of Cancer, so is there a doubling of this mothering energy? Well the North Node represents the things we are conscious of achieving and improving, so that points towards a rejuvenation of the energies of protection however with the South Node conjunct powerful Pluto, which is the kingpin here, he represents power, and in Capricorn, orthodoxy, business mindedness, corporate motivations, even domination. So what we can see very strongly with this influence, is a growing awareness of the need for nurture but equally resistance, because of cool and sometimes calculating vested interests.
Pluto has intense, transforming energy. It’s about renewal and rebirth, so here it has the power of creation and destruction. Will the need for nurture overcome corporate greed? Will Mother Earth (the Moon) continue to be compromised by the drive for profit? Are there elements within our own personal situations, that need to be torn down and rebuilt, to be more mindful of the nurturing principles of Cancer energy and be less based on a material life model? These are questions only we can ask ourselves.
If you do have any natal positions which are impacted by the Cardinal Cross of Aries 20 to 23 degrees, Cancer 20 to 23 degrees, Libra 20 to 23 degrees, or Capricorn 20 to 23 degrees, the effect will be all the mightier and with Saturn also approaching Pluto too, he is yet to significantly impact this story, but more about that soon.
