In the harmonious aspects of Chiron with the Sun (sextile, trine) we will be able to use our talents and creativity to work on ourselves and self-development.
With our creativity we shed light on what hurts us and so our wound becomes a source of inspiration.
Difficult aspects, such as opposition and squares, will give the need to hide flaws and wounds, in order for a person to maintain his reputation. Here the cause of the problem is the belief that wounds need to be hidden, that it is bad if we have a problem, and even worse if we face it.
Chiron – Meaning and Info
Contrary to the previous example, people with disharmonious aspects of Chiron and the Sun (opposition, square) have no insight into what hurts them, often consciously choosing not to look in that direction.
And while in the first case the person finds inspiration in it, in the second case the person becomes frustrated by it.
The harmonious aspects of Chiron and the Moon (conjunction, sextile, trine) bring easy perception and visions of self-healing, enhance intuition and care for others, making Chiron a true emotional healer with a great ability to see other people’s problems.
Healing comes through a woman’s lineage and a deep bond with the mother.
It can even happen that a person, because he is rejected by his mother, learns how to be a mother to himself, which develops a huge potential for empathy, because by forgiving our roots and ourselves, we can forgive other people.
Here the key is insight, understanding and peace of mind. Inharmonious aspects (opposition, square) bring fears, emotional losses, inability to focus on what is important to them. He can look for partners all his life to replace the role of parents.
The wisdom of life is transmitted simply and through a form understandable to most.
The disharmonious aspects of Mercury and Chiron (opposition, square) bring illusions about the problem, or an unrealistic view of things, as well as the difficulty of presenting it in a valid way.
A person can see what is happening and what is hurting him, but he is not able to define it.
Moreover, if Mercury is threatened by difficult aspects, then it can happen to create a bigger problem than it was from the beginning.
Beautiful aspects bring talent, creativity, peace, harmony, enjoyment through music, composing.
The more difficult aspects (opposition, square) bring insecurity, a feeling of apathy, laziness, which hinder a person to approach in a realistic way what needs to be changed in himself.
North Node – Meaning and Info
You may have noticed that there is an upside-down gourd-like symbol with a “T” in your Astral Chart. It represents the North Lunar Node, also called the “Dragon’s Head”.
Kabbalah, for example, has a strong focus on the Lunar Nodes, as well as karmic and Vedic astrology, being valuable information for understanding our “astrological karmas”.
Therefore, it is important to understand what lunar nodes are, how they are generated and all their astrological dynamics.
We often place a lot of emphasis only on luminaries (Sun and Moon), personal planets (Mercury, Mars and Venus) and outer ones (Saturn and Jupiter) to draw our Birth Chart.
However, traditional Astrology treated the Lunar Nodes with the same importance, as did the Indian system of Astrology (Vedic Astrology or Jyotsna).
And this importance is quite justified, as ancestral studies reveal that the movements of nodes significantly affect our lives and paths.
Lunar Nodes are actually points of convergence between the ecliptic of the Sun and the Moon.
The name is derived from the lunar and solar eclipses, which only occur when the Moon’s orbit around the Earth crosses the Sun’s “path”.
They are actually two imaginary points in the sky. The exact location of the Moon’s Nodes arises from the meeting of the imaginary lines of the lunar arc and the solar arc in astrology. They originate through the intersection of the lunar orbit with the apparent solar orbit (since the Earth actually revolves around the Sun).
Thus, the positioning of each Node is indicated through this Sun and Moon relationship observed from Earth.
A solar eclipse occurs when a New Moon appears near one of the nodes and a lunar eclipse when a Full Moon appears near any of the Nodes.
The North and South Nodes, also called Dragon’s Head and Dragon’s Tail (Rahu and Ketu in Vedic astrology), are opposites in each person’s Astral Chart, exerting opposite energies that must be worked through throughout our existence.
It is our challenges, the path we must seek to follow, and characteristics and behaviors with which we are natural, that we need to balance.
The South Node is exactly opposite the North Node in the Astral Chart (this is why many charts do not have both symbols, as one derives from the other and is in exact opposition).
The North Node in Aries, for example, will have the South Node in Libra and vice versa. The North Node in Pisces must have the South Node in Virgo and so on.
The relationship between the North and South Nodes is very close. When we think in terms of karma, for example, we can say that the South Node is what we were yesterday, while the North Node is what we ought to be today or tomorrow.
It is the connection between our past, with characteristics that are intimately more natural, and the future, which has yet to be discovered.
By analyzing our Lunar Nodes, we can find tips and answers that will help us on our journey of evolution and growth.
The North Node is also called the Ascending Node and the South Node the Descending Node. These nodes also gained other names, metaphorically associated with the presence of a dragon in the sky.
The first studies of the lunar nodes were carried out from Hindu astrology. In India, legend has it that the solar eclipse occurs because “a dragon from the sky swallows the sun and ends up splitting into two parts: head and tail”.
This story from Hindu mythology has made the lunar nodes associated with the dragon metaphor to this day.
By remaining in the same place for more than a year, the Lunar Nodes are linked to great changes exerted above the individual plane.
Since antiquity, the eclipses of the Sun and Moon have always represented important omens for the planet Earth, and from this derives the karmic meaning of the lunar nodes in astral maps that represent the collectivity, such as cities, countries or institutions.
The Lunar Nodes in our birth chart help us to remember the journeys of the soul, both those that have been temporarily forgotten and those that are the paths and challenges of the current existence. They complete their zodiacal cycle approximately every 18 years.
In this way, people born under the same Lunar Node have quests they can relate to, as if they were a large tribe that has similar lessons to learn.
Thus, those who are 18, for example, have the same Nodes as those who are 36 and so on.
