Transiting Nodes in Aries and Libra
July 17, 2023 – January 28, 2025
In the natal horoscope, the lunar nodes are powerful karmic points that reveal a wealth of information about your soul’s journey. The south node shares the lessons your soul has mastered, as well as the ones that are in progress, while the north node reveals your soul’s aspirations for fulfillment in this lifetime.
Your nodal story belongs to you alone, and it was imprinted in your birth chart the moment you were born to help your human self understand why you’re here and what you came here to experience, learn and accomplish.
Since that time, the lunar nodes have continued to cycle backwards (transit) through the zodiac, and approximately every 18 months they change signs and introduce a new shift in evolutionary consciousness.
On a personal level, the transiting north node shows us where we have an opportunity to grow and evolve, and the transiting south node shows us what we need to release in order to do so.
Although the transiting nodes do influence us on an individual level, the extent of that influence varies from person to person, because it depends upon the house locations of the nodes, whether make any aspects to the horoscope, and whether the individual is consciously aware and working with the energy.
However, their influence is always noticeable on the collective level because their evolutionary shift is expressed in the mundane world through public events. The north node sign describes where we are headed, while the the south node sign describes what we are leaving behind.
With the north node in Aries, a cardinal sign that expresses itself through bold actions, the coming shifts will be the in-your-face kind of ones that can’t be ignored.
Since Aries and Libra rules the 1st and 7th houses, this nodal shift puts an emphasis on the axis of relationships (me and you, I and we).
In terms of the signs themselves, Aries is a militant sign focused on individual conquest, while Libra is a diplomatic sign known focused on collaboration.
Or to be more succinct, war and peace.
During the next 18 months, we will see the theme of relationships play out on the national level in terms of us and them, as well as on the global level in terms of allies and adversaries.
We will also see a significant rise in civil unrest, a major increase in recruiting efforts by the armed forces. Sadly, many nations may have no choice but to institute a draft, and with the south node (release) in Libra, women may no longer be exempt.
Globally, nationally and/or personally, lines will be drawn, sides will be taken and fence-sitting (Libra south node) will no longer be an option. Sooner or later, everyone will choose a side.
