North Node in Aries – Dates

July 12, 2023, through January 28, 2025

What we have completed

The transit of the North Node in Taurus and the South Node in Scorpio has opened the doors for emotional release. With the Taurus-Scorpio axis, the message from the nodes is that peace of mind is achieved when we face the truth.

We have gone through this energy from December 22, 2021, to July 12, 2023. We could say that the transit of the nodes through the signs activates specific qualities, temporarily polarizing them. This produces a particular imbalance that forces us to pay more attention to certain areas of life. The nodes push us to ask ourselves questions that we never asked ourselves before. This allows us to step on the evolutionary path, more out of necessity than desire. Of course, each one lives it in a particular way. With the Taurus-Scorpio axis, the great desire to simplify life implies a deeper look at our emotional attachments that do not allow this simplification.

Scorpio is a Water and Fixed sign. Water in Scorpio does not flow like it does in Cancer or Pisces, but stays in the same place, like the waters of a lake. This is double-edged. On the one hand, the immobility of emotions allows Scorpio to know and deepen emotional consciousness. On the other hand, if Scorpio doesn’t learn to transmute emotions, they can stay in a torture room for long periods.

With the North Node in Taurus, the sign opposite Scorpio, the desire to take things easy and do something concrete for it has been activated. Taurus wants to live in the present, day by day, here and now. Scorpio wants to feel everything. It is thanks to Taurus that Scorpio can include within their emotional treasure, the need for tranquility and peace. And now, with Jupiter transiting Taurus, until July 12, this desire for serenity is exponential, so we can establish this quality within our being… permanently. What I mean is that we can include it as something natural, as part of the total experience. At least… this is the gift that this transit gives us!

In the last year and a half, we have been able to feel everything that does not bring us serenity. Although it seems unpleasant, in reality, it opens the possibility of improving our reality by taking a closer look at certain emotional attachments or attitudes that are not necessarily productive. This transit was about that.

What begins

Now, with the entry of the North Node in Aries and the South Node in Libra, a new polarization occurs between action and commitment. The North Node in Aries activates the desire to go for what we want while the South Node in Libra shows us the compromises we do and that don’t allow us to express ourselves spontaneously.

The Nodes of the Moon always move retrograde on the zodiacal wheel. From my point of view, they don’t represent a new challenge since, by going retrograde, it is as if they have already been through the path that they are transiting. More than a movement towards the unknown, the nodes create the experience of polarization of the energies of the signs through which they transit, which, of course, are opposite signs. In this way, and as I have already mentioned, they create an imbalance that we tend to seek to correct. Somehow… we have the capacity to do so. And the possibility to do well is within us. However, we might feel internal struggle every so often. The polarization occurs due to the intense desire to express the qualities represented by the sign of the North Node, which makes us notice outdated patterns, represented by the South Node. It does not mean that we must abandon the attributes of the sign of the South Node, but rather that we need to update them.

With the North Node in Aries, the desire to be authentic, to take action, to let ourselves be carried away by inspiration, and to do our will is awakened. With this new desire, we begin to become aware of all the times we put aside our authenticity in pursuit of reaching agreements. We will notice when, by wanting to be liked, we change our behavior and stop being ourselves.

This does not mean that we are going to eliminate courtesy, kindness, and grace, but that we have the possibility of reaching a new level of consciousness, where Libra qualities don’t obscure our authenticity. This forces us to form agreements with what is truly important to us, and not simply to eliminate possible conflicts.

These are the evolutionary energies that will be activated as of July 12 and we have a little over a year and a half to work with it. As I have already mentioned, each one will do it in a particular way and depending on the personal reality of each one. However, we all have Aries and Libra included in the birth chart, as well as Mars and Venus.

We will all be affected in some way or another by this transit. The need for self-affirmation will arise and will make us review conciliatory attitudes that do not include our essential truth – especially in the areas of life (or astrological houses) where the nodes transit.

The lesson of this transit is based on creating a sense of balance that includes the spontaneous, the impulsive,… what wants to be born.

Good transit!
