Free Weekly Astrology Lesson: Reincarnation in the Horoscope

The dragon eats its own tail in the old astrolabes and this is how the North Node and South Node work in astrology. Round and round, the nodes go. They feed into each other. It’s endless recycling.

Your past lives are shown by the True North Node and True South Node. Dragon’s Head (North Node) and Dragon’s Tail (South Node) are ancient markers of fate and fortune. In fact you can find them on astrolabes dating as far back as Chaucer.

At Stonehenge the Aubrey Holes (56 in number) show North Node and South Node cycles of time.

Dragon’s Head and Tail

Dragons Head and Tail - Free Weekly Astrology Lesson: Reincarnation in the HoroscopeThe dragon eats its own tail in the old astrolabes and this is how the North Node and South Node work in astrology. Round and round, the nodes go. They feed into each other. It’s endless recycling.

Prince William was born on 21st June 1982 at 9.03pm in London with the North Node at 13 Cancer in his Fourth House of family and country. It was his fate to be born into the royal family in the United Kingdom. His Tenth House contains the South Node at 13 Capricorn (the nodes are always at the same degree in opposite signs) and of course that rules success.

Families and Nodes

As families reincarnate together to resolve past life karma it is common for your North Node and South Node to line up with factors in, say, your mother’s chart. Diana, Princess of Wales, was born on 1st July 1961 in Sandringham at 7.45pm. There are two birth times for her and my friends Debbie Frank and Penny Thornton use either; in the case of the Nodes, which move very slowly, it doesn’t really matter which time you use.

Diana was born with the asteroid Vesta at 13 Taurus in the Second House of money. Vesta is about ‘one male, two or more females’ and of course she divorced Charles, Prince of Wales for his affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles – among other reasons. It was at his expense, literally.

William was a child when this happened but there is a link from his North Node at 13 Cancer and South Node at 13 Capricorn and Diana’s Vesta at 13 Taurus.

Past Life Memories

The sign and house of the True North Node in your horoscope, shows past life memories which you may pick up in childhood, as you arrive with them, when you are born. Often, in your life, you will think ‘Here we go again’ in relation to the life stories which unfold. It’s like the same book with a different cover. Same chapters, no matter what you do. The character names may change but the plot remains the same. Is it good or bad? It depends on the other horoscope factors in the same sign and house as your True North Node. Are they hard work or easy?

The sign and house of the True South Node is similar. You are also born remembering particular roles, themes, lives or concerns. You think to yourself ‘Been there, done that, written the screenplay, seen the film.’ Sometimes people choose to avoid pursuing the affairs of that South Node house and sign, without knowing why. Here’s a clue. You’ve done it all before.

Transits to your Nodes (they are opposite each other) will trigger the repetition and déjà vu.

People whose horoscope factors aspect your Nodes (allow no more than one degree) may have shared past lives with you and there could be some karma there to enjoy…or not.

You can also create new karma, particularly in love, by starting a relationship when both of you have the travelling South Node or North Node aspecting your stuff in Cancer, Leo, Libra and/or Scorpio.

You can break up but you’ll bump into this person, or they’ll have reason to stick to you like glue, until at last the karma is complete and there is no more to say or do.

Families welcome new babies and get the chart done. The chart reveals ties between the Node positions of the new child and other family members. You’ve all agreed to work out particular issues, before you incarnated. Or, you enjoyed the last past life so much, you vow to be together again.

Test This For Yourself

Test this for yourself. It’s the best way. Look up the True North Node and True South Node of your exes and see how it pings your birth chart. (You can look this up free online, at many astrology sites, or in an ephemeris). Maybe you two knew each other before.

If you are owed past life credits, then Jupiter will turn up in the same sign and house as one of your Nodes.

Barack Obama has the True South Node in Aquarius in the Eleventh House of groups, alongside Jupiter. He inherited great karma with the Democrats.

If groups, clubs, teams, political parties, bands, societies and other networks are hard for you, then you may have one of the Nodes in Aquarius in your Eleventh House alongside Saturn. You may even choose to avoid them. You may find yourself thrown into a movement, or a trend but struggle with it and even separate yourself from it. Karma.

Madonna was born on 16th August 1958 at 7.05am in Bay City, Michigan. She has the True South Node in Aries in her First House. She’s done this before. She knows why image matters. Why is Madonna’s hair, wardrobe, face and name so important? Her True South Node is at 24 Aries trine her Sun at 24 Leo.

People who are sceptical about reincarnation, past life memories and karma are quick to reference the fact that not everybody can have been a European monarch in a previous existence. Where are all the maids with their mops and brooms?

The Nodes show you the general theme, not the specifics. Who knows why Madonna was born, just knowing why image mattered so much? Maybe she was an Egyptian hairdresser. (But obviously a very good one).

The Nodes show us where we go round and round. It’s not always so merry. If you have the True North Node or True South Node in the Sixth House of mental and physical health, it may require serious effort to get out of a loop.

As always in astrology, you need to put your Nodes in context with the rest of the chart. What else is in Virgo and the Sixth House? What aspects does it make? Who else is involved in your health and wellbeing and what aspects are made, from their birth horoscope, to yours? What about the transits and the trends affecting you?

Astrology is a good way to crack your own code. It gives you an objective viewpoint, which you may not have considered before. If you’re going through major health issues you will want to throw everything at your question and that might just include your Nodes.

Predicting With the Nodes

You can predict the future using the Nodes as part of the jigsaw. I did this on the 28th of March 2019, when I published a prediction about a virus and a critical change with China, the United States and Europe between January 6th and 13th 2020. This turned out to be the Corona Virus.

One of the issues to watch here, was the classic virus/plague pattern of Cancer-Capricorn Nodes moving into Gemini-Sagittarius.

Why? With Cancer-Capricorn, no matter if we’re talking the Black Death or the Spanish Flu, we always see big government, royalty or big business (Capricorn) dominating the house and apartment market (Cancer) so that habitat is squeezed by too many people. In overcrowded cities, no matter if we are talking London in 1665 or New York in 2020, overcrowding means a virus can become a pandemic.

The Gemini-Sagittarius Node cycle always follows straight afterwards and it stops travel, immigration and tourism. The world changes and borders go up. Because of plague, flu, virus, epidemic, pandemic – the old map of the world is redrawn.

Astrology is about history. History repeats and astrologers noticed. The old model of time (linear time, going in a straight line, with the ‘brick wall’ of the future) is not what astrologers use, at all. We use circular time, where everything goes around and comes around.

My Original Virus Predictions

I made two predictions about a virus, one year before it happened. The Nodes give you the ‘why’ and the ‘what’ background, because we’ve seen it all before. When the men in power take over human and animal habitat for money (Capricorn-Cancer) we see health crisis and the world map is redrawn afterwards to stop infection (Sagittarius-Gemini).

This was the 28th March 2019 prediction

“Between Monday January 6th and Monday January 13th, 2020, there will be a critical change in the balance of power between the United States, China and Europe. It will also involve New Zealand, either on questions of trade or as a major non-NATO ally. We, the people, need to track this before it even comes to pass to make sure the stakes are kept as low as possible. One Last Note – Post-Millennium Bugs, Hackers and Viruses.”
(28th March 2019)

And this was the 11th November 2019 prediction. I made it twice because there were two warning dates.

“Where is the Chaos in Your Life on Sunday 8th and Monday 9th March?

You can circle these dates in your diary now, because we’re going to see computer and human viruses.”
(11th November 2019)

The first COVID-19 fatality was declared by China on 10th January 2020. WHO declared a pandemic on March 11th, 2020.

The astrology was spot on with the first date, a year before it happened, and was just two days out with the second one, when WHO declared a pandemic.

Now, let’s look at this Sagittarius-Gemini cycle.

The South Node in Sagittarius

This new horoscope cycle from around Wednesday May 6th 2020 until January 19th 2022 will bring back karma for you, from the period October 14th 2001 through April 12th 2003. As it’s in Sagittarius-Gemini, in your personal birth chart this will be about your Ninth House (foreign people and places) and Third House (the internet).

The Meaning of the South Node

The South Node shows karma, reincarnation and previous lifetimes. In its new sign of Sagittarius from around May 6th 2020 until January 19th 2022, it will bring back people and places from far away or overseas. Questions about university life, colleges and education. Familiar issues about the worldwide web, publishing and books.

It is always opposite the North Node in astrology, but what’s the difference?

Are You a Premium Member?

Check your astrological birth chart now and look for factors in Sagittarius in the Ninth House and/or Gemini in the Third House. If you have them, then this South Node in Sagittarius cycle will be more important for you.

Why? Because the more factors you have in Gemini, the more crucial the internet and multimedia, books and ideas are to you.

The more factors you have in Sagittarius, the more important foreign people and places, travel and ‘travel in the mind’ is to you.

Starting in an obvious way in May and June 2020, but with you until January 2022, you are going to be taken back to the past, and into past lives, by what unfolds.

Even if your chart lacks anything in Gemini or Sagittarius, those around you who have those placements will make milestone choices about their use of the internet, and their dealings with foreign people and countries, by January 2022.

[contentblock id=show-chart]


The Meaning of the North Node

The North Node is the dragon’s head. The South Node is the dragon’s tail. According to many astrologers, like Jean-Louis Brau, Helen Weaver and Allan Edmans (editors of the Larousse Encyclopedia of Astrology, Plume, New York 1980) the North Node corresponds “to the mouth, or a point of openness and receptivity, and the south node to the anus, or a point of elimination and release.”

Based on this way of thinking about the South Node in Sagittarius, we are going to see you (and everyone around you) eliminating and releasing –– old Sagittarius concerns.

The Anus Theory of the South Node

The Larousse Encyclopedia of Astrology is a good source, with Consulting and Contributing Editors including Robert Hand, Charles Harvey and Charles Jayne.

So – this ‘anus’ idea of the South Node is an interesting theory we should take seriously!

One way to test it – is to look at what the world was doing in terms of foreign people and places (thus, travel, tourism, immigration) on the last cycle. Not to mention publishing and the worldwide web.

Universities and colleges. Museums and all places of learning – libraries, documentary production houses – are also ruled by this sign. All these aspects of life are Sagittarius’ domain – the famous half-man, half-horse with the bow and arrow resembles Chiron the centaur, the greatest teacher in astrology.

Excrete and Release?

Well, for those of you asking me about this ‘excrete, let go, delete, release’ theory, let’s go back into older South Node in Sagittarius cycles to see if the events of history prove this idea.

The North Node in Gemini

You may have read around the internet, and in various astrology books, that on these cycles you should try to let go of the South Node experiences, concerns, stories and themes (particularly those from 19 years ago) and try to move towards the North Node areas of life instead.

The North Node being in Gemini in 2001-2003, this theory suggests we should ‘take in’ or ‘devour’ Gemini things. So – language translation. All forms of media, from radio and television, to the latest developments online. We should also add short-haul train, plane, bus and coach journeys. Commuting, by bicycle, boat or public transport.

More About Gemini

Gemini is defined in The Larousse Encyclopedia of Astrology as ‘the insatiable computer’ of the human mind. “This sign is associated with teaching, writing, translating, science, photography, journalism and business.”

I would disagree with photography, unless it’s for news purposes (Pisces rules that) and business is really a Taurus and Scorpio concern. Yet, Gemini is certainly about communication.

Sagittarius is similar to Gemini but different. “Like its polar opposite, Gemini, Sagittarius wants to know, but this knowing must go further. Where Gemini is content to think, Sagittarius must experience; where Gemini will let the mind wander, Sagittarius wants to travel; and where Gemini likes to accumulate facts, Sagittarius wants to construct theories, to fit all the separate pieces of information into an all-encompassing world view.”

What the Years 1908, 1909, 1910 Tell Us

The proof is strong for the Gemini North Node and Sagittarius South Node, between 28th September 1908 and March 23rd 1910 when the cycle finished.

I am sure you can see the uncanny parallels with 2020, as COVID-19 has transformed communication (video group calls) and dramatically halted immigration and tourism. Virgin is just one airline facing the point of no return. We live in the age of Zoom on this cycle, don’t we? But if we go back to 1908, 1909, 1910, we also see ‘zooming’ with what was then the introduction of powered flight.

Sometimes there is a literal repetition of an event, situation, person or organisation when the Nodes go back into the same zodiac signs they were in, many years before.

1908 – Cars, Planes, Post and Immigration

January 12th
A long-distance radio message is sent from the Eiffel Tower for the first time.

How India Sees the Nodes

The ideas of so many astrologers about the North Node and South Node have been borrowed from India. So what do they tell us?

Over there, the South Node is known as Ketu and Rahu is the North Node.

Dragon’s Head and Dragon’s Tail, becomes serpent’s head and serpent’s tail.

That idea about the dragon comes to us from the Latin. Caput Draconis, head of the dragon (North Node) and Cauda Draconis (tail of the dragon (South Node).

Bepin Behari on the Nodes

Bepin Behari, author of Planets in the Signs and Houses and Fundamentals of Vedic Astrology, has written a good guide to Indian astrology. Myths and Symbols of Vedic Astrology is published by Lotus Press (Wisconsin, 2003).

He writes “Basically, Rahu and Ketu represent karmic retribution. They link present restrictions and opportunities with past actions. They arrange events in such a way that harmonious balance ultimately prevails.”

He notes that both the North Node and South Node work together. “They both produce their results by a churning operation; that is, by creating psychological storms and strains.”

Putting It All Together – The South Node

There is no evidence that a cycle of the South Node in Sagittarius is about ‘excreting’, letting go, eliminating or expelling Sagittarius concerns.

Far from it. What happens on a South Node in Sagittarius and North Node in Gemini cycle is a loop. The issues of both signs cross over.

In 1908, the Japanese and American governments arrived at what became known as the “Gentlemen’s Agreement”.

Japan agreed to limit emigration to the U.S., while the U.S. granted admission to the wives, children, and other relatives of immigrants already resident. Following an agreement made on February 15th 1907, America’s President Roosevelt struck a deal with Japan. If he could suspend immigration, Japanese-American students could attend U.S. public schools.

The Nodes Aren’t Simple

The Nodes aren’t simple. They work as a knot, or loop, that can’t be separated. The old 1980s ideas (and earlier) about North being somehow ‘good’ and South being somehow ‘bad’ are simplistic and inaccurate.

It’s more realistic to say, that what was done in the past, pulls in the concerns of both signs. We can see that in the Japan-America example, at the turn of last century (Gemini rules schools, teachers and pupils, and language differences – Sagittarius rules immigration).

This is one example of many where you would expect to see karma play out in 2020, 2021, early 2022. Watch the relationship between Japan and America because it was clearly laid out in a previous Sagittarius-Gemini node cycle.

Going Deeper Into Your Astrology Chart

Astrology is about patterns. Using the above example, we might have predicted something big to happen, karmically, between America and Japan the next time there was Sagittarius and Gemini ‘weather’ in the heavens.

It did. On December 7th 1941 the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbour. For the first time in 12 years, Jupiter was in Gemini. Mercury was in Sagittarius. The Sun was in Sagittarius.

The One World Language

Right on cue, we are expecting Japan to host the Olympics (maybe!) as the North Node goes through Gemini and the South Node goes through Sagittarius.

In 2021, the wheel of karma turns again. We always have choices with astrology. That’s the whole point of horoscopes.

We can choose to heal the past, find wholeness, balance the spiritual books and settle the soul’s score sheet.

The Sagittarius-Gemini Node Cycle and You

Go back 19 years, in May 2020, and look at how you were affected by the node cycle last time, in 2001. In the year 2021, look back at 2002. Chances are, even if you have just one factor in Gemini in your Third House, or Sagittarius in your Ninth House, you’ll be seeing a chance to get some kind of closure.

You can listen to a podcast about the new Node positions on my new YouTube channel, which I made with special guest Penny Thornton, who together with another friend, Debbie Frank, was astrologer to Diana, the Princess of Wales.



Summing up the Nodes

The North Node and South Node reveal karma from previous lifetimes, and repeated themes from this one. The Dragon’s Head (North Node) eats the Dragon’s Tail (South Node) and on it goes.

The Nodes move back through the signs of the zodiac in approximate 19 year cycles. That’s why, at any given point, if you think back a couple of decades to what was happening, you’ll hit repetition. Sometimes literal, usually symbolic or thematic.

The idea that you ‘should do the North Node’ and ‘let go of the South Node’ has no evidence to support it. Taking Prince William as an example, the future King, he can hardly avoid family/career at either end as both are mixed up together and it is his destiny!

Destiny is your ruler with the Nodes. How have they worked in your personal birth chart and how is the transit of the Gemini-Sagittarius nodes affecting you in terms of travel, for example, or relations with people in other countries?

  1. Hi Jessica
    Love this article it is very interesting to me
    I am wondering about my nodes I’m Capricorn and cancer with Jupiter in Capricorn ( is that my success house or relationship)and I do have many signs in Gemini and Sagittarius
    How do you see this affecting me and my life. Thank you

    1. The biggest change in your life is coming with finances, business, the house or apartment – from Christmas 2020 and by 2023 it is evident that this is where you could find real control and power, if you do the work. This is all very new to you. This may be a family conversation near Christmas Eve or a discussion with a partner – perhaps a career option that was not there before. The first two weeks of January will show you the numbers. This is big. It is also serious, but it will work out very well for you in 2021. Just avoid paperwork January 16th to March 13th unless you have Plan B and C and have read the fine print on it.

  2. Hi Jessica
    There is a subject I want to ask your opinion on. Transit Pluto and Jupiter square my Nodes at 22 degrees. I have been in a relationship that hasn’t come to a conclusion for 7 years. It does not end and does not go to marriage.
    In our synastry charts, my Venus and my South Node are in Libra cunjunct his Venus at 22 degrees. How transit Jupiter and Pluto conjunction , which squared my nodes and squared his Venus, affect this relationship.
    I will be so happy if you share your opinion about it (Ps. My Asc is Sagittarius)

    1. I don’t work with synastry charts unfortunately. If you have the North Node and South Node at 22 Aries and Libra, and along comes the Jupiter-Pluto Conjunction at 22 Capricorn, then it’s now or never for the relationship. In fact, it was like that when Saturn was at 22 Capricorn earlier on. It is only now that solutions become apparent. By now there will be a difficult way out, or way through. Like crawling through a tunnel to get out of an obstacle course. Yet it would solve things. Only you can make that decision, but I think the time is here.

  3. Thank you for this lesson. I loved this one. I find the nodes pretty interesting. I think they explain a lot. Unfortunately, I cannot remember specifics of 2001 or 2002. I just know that I was in a marriage that I am no longer in and had young kids. I am remarried now to someone else now and kids are all grown up.

  4. Dear Jessica,

    I got chills when I read what you wrote on 11.11.2020:
    „If you are owed past life credits, then Jupiter will turn up in the same sign and house as one of your Nodes.“

    I have the SN, Uranus and Jupiter almost conjunct at 0, 2,3 Libra. Since December 2017 I have had the most unusual experiences and what I think is a spiritual awakening of sorts. Always involving the same person.
    It has been mainly positive and at times I did wonder, why me?

    Not sure if I am owed but definitely something to think about.
    Thanks for another great post.

    1. Chills are good – that is your spirit guide saying ‘Yes’ to you. Gordon Smith has some excellent material on the chills, for mediums, on YouTube – I believe. Yes, the spiritual awakening with the same person is real. You two knew each other before. Thank you.

  5. Thank you Jessica for another fantastic article. I have those nodes in Sag and Gemini what can I expect in terms of travel etc?

    1. You are in this past life Sagittarius-Gemini Node group who were very likely there during the Black Death and/or Spanish Flu pandemics. Quarantine and border closure is something you are very familiar with and some of your dreams in 2020 may have been quite powerful. Scotland, for example, shut borders against England in the 1660s to protect herself from the Bubonic Plague. What is happening until January 2022 is a repeat of old cycles, which will see different countries, counties, states and territories setting up rules about access. Don’t be surprised if you just cannot go where you want, when you want. Good year to learn a language inside!

  6. Dearest Jessica great article xxx
    Oh man, I’ve come down with fever and cough, I’ve got Venus 22 Capricorn, the only politics I’ll be watching will be in a few days from now. I’ll probably have missed all the drama with trump being carried out. And I’ve got 23 cancer cap nodes, I’m keeping as far away from the kids but I don’t think my astrology chart is showing me a good few weeks ahead x

    1. I sincerely hope this is not COVID-19 but by now you will have been tested and are isolating in quarantine. I am sure your children are caring for you even if they must distance from you. Even if this is influenza you obviously need to go to bed and stay there. Take a deep breath, as out of all this, will come a new way of eating, drinking and looking after yourself. In fact it will be a revolution. That has to wait until 2021, but you will eventually learn from this illness and come up with a really exciting, liberating new way to manage your health, wellbeing and fitness. Until then I can recommend that you fall asleep to the YouTube healing videos of Grand Reiki Master Sandip Jain. Try the 45 minute distance healing, free, and also the more intense chakra balancing. He has excellent feedback, try it.

  7. Thanks for this great feature, Jessica! The connection of the nodes to possible past life connections is one of the many things I’ve learned from you that I find most compelling.

    When I checked my Sag. husband’s chart, I was so interested to see that his N/S nodes are Taurus & Scorpio at 27 degrees – mine are Taurus & Scorpio at 5 degrees! Our Venus, Neptune, Pluto, Chiron, Ascendant, Uranus, MC and IC are also all in the same signs. Is this a strong suggestion of having been together in a previous lifetime?

    My life certainly improved when I met him in 2012, and he is a huge comfort in my life (he has said the same to me).

    Thank you so much for any insights! (And thanks for getting me through the uncertainty of the US election.)
    LT 🙂

    1. Thank you LT and I appreciate the feedback about the American election. I cannot tell you how shocked I was to walk into The Crescent Hotel in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, at 6.00pm on Wednesday and see Donald and Mike on television claiming victory. It was literally the memory of Mercury Retrograde on other elections with wrong results (Gore-Bush and also Truman-Dewey) that got me through! Anyway, we now have excellent news with Kamala Harris and Joe Biden replacing Pluto with Jupiter. You and your husband have several lifetimes together and have made pacts, between lives, to return in order to complete karma. You owe each other and are owed. I am so pleased you have found Comfort and Joy with each other (to quote the film) and as the Nodes are financial in nature, you have both helped each other economically in other lifetimes; perhaps even through depression or recession.

  8. I have North Node in Sagittarius and South Node in Gemini. This year they will be opposite each other. How interesting. Speaking of past lives, my MC is in 2 degrees in Virgo and all my past significant relationships with men and also my daughter are Virgos and a couple of Leos.

    1. The Node Return in Sagittarius and Gemini is really about previous lives spent dealing with borders and quarantine. You have been through this before, possibly in the 1350’s during the Black Death, and most likely in a European country about that time. You may well have experienced the quarantine and border issues of the 1660’s in France, Scotland or England too. What you are going to see, as if you didn’t know, is a new world order in 2021, 2022 where we find several nations or regions pursuing elimination, so you are back to some very familiar issues about access, visas, passports, residency and so on.

  9. Dear Jessica, very insightful post as always. Your teachings have been so much help over the past few years and I wish more people would engage with astrology as it would help them too. My husband is a complete sceptic, and would benefit – but you cannot force people to ‘believe’/engage – they have to have their own ‘haha’ moment. It depends on everyone’s journey I guess. Back to the post, I can really see the personal connection between what you discuss around Gemini-Sagittarius nodes more generally (currently working on translation in academic research, as well as having come to the conclusion that you can research a foreign country without necessarily travelling there, hello Covid). Where I am more unsure is around my own North-South Nodes pattern (18 Taurus/18 Scorpio): I can see those patterns when it comes to my family (ups and downs of acquiring wealth, then losing it all over the generations) but I cannot see this in this current life (and I hope this is not about to happen again). I have Vulcano and IC in Taurus, and Neptune (lol, cannot see what is going on with the Nodes) and MC in Scorpio. This does look like hard work, does it not? 18 Taurus and 18 Scorpio have just appeared today against IC and MC/Juno and I am wondering what this may mean. I also have 22 Capricorn (Salacia in my chart) highlighted in Pluto (for a while) and more recently Jupiter. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated…

    1. Thank you. Your husband is allowed to be sceptical. Your North Node at 18 Taurus and South Node at 18 Scorpio in the Second House and Eighth House immediately describe issues with your marriage, actually, as Scorpio is ‘sex and money’ and usually weddings and mortgages. We also associate Scorpio with ‘until death do us part’ and the legacy or will a couple make. So, the opposition with the Taurus Node is about your values, your budget, your ideas about who/what is precious, in contrast with your husband’s values. A really basic example is you paying to subscribe to an astrology website when he does not believe in it! Anyway, jokes aside, as you go through the transit of Uranus in Taurus, slowly approaching this 18 degree bridge, you will need to get yourself into a flexible position, so that you have plenty of options, and a great deal of room to move, financially. Uranus brings about radical change and although you have had so many past lives of being rich and poor, and a great deal of past life knowledge, it is also true that Uranus at 18 Taurus in July 2022, August 2022, September and October 2022, is a diary date to watch. For example, if that is when a deadline is approaching for a share meeting. I would also expect that August 2022 as a whole is a pivotal month for karma, as the North Node then goes to 18 Taurus and South Node goes to 18 Scorpio, so the timing is pretty exact. We also have Saturn at 18 Aquarius in October 2022, so that whole middle period is about ‘the challenge to change’. You will do a lot of the hard work in that period. Uranus goes back to 18 Taurus in April 2023, May 2023 and Chiron then approaches 18 Aries by June 2023, so that also seems to be a date to watch for you. Look at any due dates on paperwork with policies on pension/superannuation, insurance, final mortgage repayments and so on, to see if these tally. I would be amazed if you had not been through this in the 1930s actually, but meditation or dreams may reveal that to you. Uranus is the revolution that will turn the world economy upside down, set you free, liberate you, give you independence, space and autonomy. None of that is for sale. The admission price is a willingness to experiment. To do that, the less rigid, fixed or stuck you can be with your commitments to a bank, for example, the better.

  10. Hi Jess – thank you for this. I always find the nodes a bit hard to get my head around! What should I be thinking about my nodal return, which will come up later in this cycle? Many thx x

    1. North Node in Gemini, South Node in Sagittarius is really about past life karma in your Third House and Ninth House. The North Node describes what you cannot escape and feel frustrated by, so that you are forced to develop a sense of humour, philosophical thinking and acceptance to deal with it. The South Node describes what you know backwards (been there, done that, written the screenplay and acted the part) and are more comfortable with, even though you can take it or leave it. Gemini and the Third House describe the internet, the media, writing, broadcasting, public speaking, language, communication, commuting and short-haul travel. Sagittarius and the Ninth House describes foreign people and places, regional differences, publishing, the worldwide web, education and academia. As the Nodes return you will be taken back to one or more past lives to settle old spiritual debts and collect old soul repayments. It will be really obvious and you may feel or just know. you have been there before. Typically your other lives have involved emigration.

  11. Hello Jessica, thank you for yet another great article!
    I have my NN and SN at 13 degrees Sagittarius and Gemini respectively, squared by Jupiter – is this bad?
    And does the current cycle mean I won’t be able to travel anymore, or emigrate? I’ve never felt at home in my country of origin and I want very much to move to Scotland…
    Thank you for shining your light!

    1. Vulcano and Minerva aspect your Nodes at 13 degrees. Jupiter is too wide so not an issue. Essentially, you have past lives as a student, teacher, traveller and migrant. One foreign language will feel so natural to you. Your pathway with foreign people and places, regional differences and so on, is full of obstacles between now and January 2022 and you will be blocked and stopped from travel as you knew it. This is not only COVID-19 of course, but the failure of major airlines and ferry and cruise operators. Eventually the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland will split into four nations, with borders up, until the virus is eliminated within, and the country reopens to its nations. Yes, you could emigrate to Scotland, but in the future, it will mean total commitment, so you may have to marry the country you are in, rather like falling in love with someone and believing in them…you will do that with a country. By the way, this may be a past life going back to the 1660’s when Scotland shut borders against England because of the plague. Perhaps you are being sent back!

  12. Hello Jessica

    i found this article fascinating, I struggled to fully understand it in relation to my own birth chart and the themes lessons in relation to me. I have placements in Sagittarius but in 2001/2002 I was 11/12.

  13. Dear Jessica,

    I have NN in 23deg Scorpio and SN in 23 deg in Taurus. My life partner is only 2 months younger them me, so he has nodes in the same signs. And his Sun conjuct my NN (his DOB is 15/11/1975). Is it good for life developments have partner with the same karmic lessons as for nodes? Conjuction of his Sun and my NN means that we should met in this life time?

    Thank you!

    1. There is really no good or bad with the nodes, or contacts between the nodes in the charts of partners – it is just fated, karmic and it is what it is, generally. You can only say if things are easy or hard work! Given that you have these Taurus-Scorpio contacts, the main stretch here is Uranus going through Taurus until 2026, triggering financial, house, apartment, business or charity issues for both of you in quite a sudden and unexpected way. At 23 degrees this is rather late in the piece, so May 2024 is yet to arrive, but if your combined paperwork or agreements (a mortgage for example) has that sort of deadline, be aware that Uranus at 23 Taurus and the Sun at 23 Taurus – and Venus, and Mercury – suggest a real bridge to cross, if you are still together then. Uranus challenges you to change.

  14. This is a very iinteresting artical. I have the Sun in Virgo at 8,Moon in virgo at 10,Pluto in Virgo at 26, Mercury in Virgo at 27 and the South Node at 2 viirgo,My Jupiter in Scorpio Sextile the South node at 2.Now in 2003 December 7th was the day where my wife died after a 3 days iilness.When i look at the years,then it tells me that the nodes were in Scorpio and Taurus.Can this happen again in my family when the nodes turn into Scorpio? I mean can a member of ny family die?

    1. Astrology does not predict death. If you are strongly Virgo then you are here to work, to control your mind, body and spirit (your mental and physical health), to perfect your trade, profession or craft over the course of your lifetime – and to understand healing.
