Saturn South Node: from 17 Capricorn to 29 Capricorn
Saturn North Node: from 16 Cancer to 0 Leo
Pluto South Node: from 17 Capricorn to 21 Capricorn
Pluto North Node: from 18 Cancer to 21 Cancer
On a personal level, these nodes significantly influence the individual depending upon where they fall in the chart by house and sign, and even more so if a planet in the chart conjuncts one of them. Yet, since everyone on the planet experiences these nodal positions simultaneously, the personal experiences are echoed en masse and create a collective current. Through these planetary node placements, we can identify evolutionary lessons that affect the collective.
The nodal axis of Saturn and Pluto conjunct in Capricorn and Cancer
At a glance it is extremely revealing to notice that the nodes of Saturn and Pluto are conjunct. To be a little more precise, individuals born with a Sun from Aquarius to Cancer will have the north nodes of Pluto and Saturn conjunct in Cancer, while those born with a Sun from Leo to Capricorn will have the south node of Pluto and Saturn conjunct in Capricorn. We can all agree that having Saturn and Pluto in tight aspect in the chart can be extremely challenging – this configuration can shake the fabric of security on a regular basis, and it rigorously tests a person on questions of integrity and strength of character. While the nodes are not planets, they still significantly embody the energy of the planets; we may say that at some level, the whole world is constantly under a Saturn/Pluto conjunction influence; maybe this can explain the fact that distrust in politicians and leaders is “common currency!”

The Space between the Stars: The Nature and Function of the Planetary Nodes
by Mark Jones
Originally published in The Mountain Astrologer
The fact that the Moon has nodes is commonly taken into account by astrologers. What is not always known or understood is that all the planets have nodes. The essence of astrology is found within the ecliptic, since the circle of the zodiac itself is formed around it. Because the apparent motion of the Sun forms the ecliptic, it is the only body in the solar system that does not have a nodal axis.
South NodeIt is important to emphasize that there is no thing found at the north or south node of a planetary body; it is instead an abstract point in space that marks the intersection of the motion of the planet as it crosses the ecliptic. When the planet rises above the ecliptic, this forms the ascending or north node, and when the planet falls below the ecliptic, this forms the descending or south node. (See Figure, at left.)
During the Uranus–Pluto conjunction of the mid-to-late 1960s and very early ‘70s, Theodor Landscheidt initially presented a paper (1965) and then a workshop (1971) on the nature of the planetary nodes. In 1971, Dane Rudhyar published a pamphlet in the Humanistic Astrology Series: The Planetary and Lunar Nodes (CSA Press). During 1973, Dr. Zipporah Dobbins, who had attended Landscheidt’s workshop, published The Node Book (TIA Publications), which included her reflections on the planetary nodes.
Now, during the waxing First Quarter square of Uranus and Pluto, it seems an opportune moment to assess the importance of the revolutionary idea of the planetary nodes as originally presented at the onset of the current Uranus–Pluto synodic cycle. In the intervening decades, the recognition of the nodes’ importance — with some exceptions, such as the teachings of Jeffrey Wolf Green — seems to have slipped from collective awareness. I believe that the significance of the planetary nodes is worth our while to acknowledge at this time.
Dane Rudhyar was clear that, because the planetary nodes refer to the point at which a planet’s orbit intersects the ecliptic, and since the ecliptic is the apparent path of the Sun’s movement from the perspective of the Earth, they symbolize a critical factor in the meaning of the planet as it impacts the nature of life on Earth:
This intersection and the nodes it produces symbolize the fundamental relationship between a planet and the Earth considered as two components in the solar system. The relationship has significance in terms of this solar system as a vast cosmic field of dynamic existence. When, therefore, we apply it to the chart of an individual human being it should be evident that what this relationship — and therefore the planetary north and south nodes — mean in that chart should be referred to the most basic factors in that individual person, i.e., factors that are inherent in the essential destiny of the individual. They are factors which reach deeper than the natural bio-psychic functions which planets normally represent in a birth-chart — just because the planet as a moving small disc of light in the sky is something that the personal consciousness can normally perceive while the entire orbit of that planet is a cosmic fact which transcends sense-perception.1
What Rudhyar is alluding to is that the planetary node symbolizes the entire orbital motion of the planet as it relates to the Earth. In that sense, the planetary nodes are in some ways more significant than the position of the planets in the horoscope, since these nodes refer to the complete evolutionary arc of that planet and the archetype that it represents. The planetary nodes, then, refer to the meaning of the entire orbital cycle of that planet. This can include the whole history of that archetype as it operates on an individual and collective level — just as it refers to the very idea of the planetary archetypes themselves evolving within a dynamic system or cosmos.
We will limit ourselves to an introduction to the position and meaning of the planetary nodes of Jupiter and beyond; this is partially because of space limitations (my upcoming book, The Planetary Node Handbook, will allow more exploration) and partly because of the question of using geocentric or heliocentric nodal positions. With the nodes of Jupiter outwards, there is less difference between the geocentric and heliocentric positions of the nodes. While Rudhyar used the heliocentric nodes, I employ the geocentric nodes (after Landscheidt and Jeffrey Green). My intention is to re-introduce the idea of the planetary nodes at this prescient moment in the synodic cycle of Uranus and Pluto without such technical questions proving divisive, or getting entangled in articulating the distinctions between heliocentric and geocentric.
The particular approach I use to the nodal axis of the Moon was presented in my book, Healing the Soul: Pluto, Uranus and the Lunar Nodes (2011, Raven Dreams Press). As described therein, the South Node of the Moon can be viewed as the past history of the Moon’s archetype (the person’s ego, the early home life and formation of the personality), and the North Node of the Moon is representative of the intended evolutionary direction of that archetype — in this case, the development of the personality towards its most fulfilling goals.
The south node of a planet represents its past, either in the form of what has been assimilated (e.g., a gift or a previously developed capacity) or what remains unassimilated: a restriction or unresolved aspect of the planetary archetype. Whereas the north node of a planet represents that which is ready to be absorbed and expressed: the intended evolutionary direction or goal of development.
So, to apply this approach to the planetary archetypes of Jupiter and outwards, we gain a threefold understanding of each planetary archetype: The past, or what has been already assimilated or has failed to assimilate, is revealed via the south node. The present functioning of the planet is shown by its present placement within the horoscope. Then, the north node of the planet would reveal the intended evolution of the archetype embodied by that planet. I will now give examples of this trinity method with the archetypes we are considering.
The positions of both the geocentric and heliocentric planetary nodes can be found in Astrolabe’s software, Solar Fire. When you open a chart, you simply click on Reports and scroll down to the Planetary Nodes. Note: The term “Ascending Node” refers to the north node, and “Descending Node” refers to the south node. To switch between geocentric and heliocentric positions, you use the Edit feature to open a new chart and then use the arrow by Coordinate System to switch between them.
The Outer Planets and Their Nodes
The geocentric and heliocentric south node of Neptune is in Aquarius and the north node is in Leo, just as the south node of Uranus is in Sagittarius and the north node in Gemini for everyone born within the last few centuries. (See Table, below.)
The south nodes of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto for all people are currently in Capricorn, with the north nodes in Cancer. “It is difficult to be sure what such a bunching of Planetary Nodes means, but it must be significant …,” wrote Rudhyar, inconclusively.2 We can see that the collective beliefs (Jupiter), primary conditioning (Saturn), and deepest psychological attachments (Pluto) of present humanity lie in the history of civilization (Capricorn) and its attempts to structure consciousness through the rise and fall of empires, patriarchy, and the dominance of nature as the foundations for the ascendancy of human civilization (Capricorn).
Let’s recap the qualities of the natal planets and their nodes, from Jupiter on out.
Natal Jupiter symbolizes the nature of an individual’s beliefs, faith, or vision of life. The south node of Jupiter represents the prior nature of that individual’s beliefs and vision, the history of those beliefs, and the systems of thought that generated them. The north node of Jupiter represents the most progressive vision on an individual and collective level.
Natal Saturn denotes the nature of how we structure our consciousness, the conditioning factors, how we psychologically mature (or fail to). The south node of Saturn represents our prior individual attempts to structure our life and mature; it also represents the history of our conditioning and the factors that structure society as a whole. The north node of Saturn represents the potential for maturation of the individual and society itself.
Natal Uranus symbolizes the nonlinear mind, the far memory in which traumatic experiences can be held, the capacity of the individual to liberate and become truly independent of conditioning factors, the power of science and technology to impact human life. The south node of Uranus represents the collective origins of trauma as well as the history of the individual’s attempts to individuate. The north node of Uranus represents the greatest potential of the individual and the collective to liberate from trauma and restrictive conditioning factors.
Natal Pluto signifies the core focus of emotional/psychological security within the individual. The south node of Pluto represents the history of what the individual or collective experience has compulsively gravitated towards to gratify a deep, often unconscious need for security. The north node of Pluto represents the greatest possible psychological transformation for the individual or the collective.
Natal Neptune reflects the deepest dreams or aspirations of the individual or the collective, their relationship to the divine or ultimate truth, the nature of the collective unconscious. The south node of Neptune represents the history of the individual and the collective’s relationship to their greatest aspirational dreams or their vision of the divine. The north node of Neptune represents the deepest vision of healing on an individual and collective level.

De ce nu am nici o îngrijorare în legătură cu " ziua de mâine "?
A fost 8:00. Fix.Când mi-a venit gândul, citind pe Vise.
Na.Nu e ciudat?!
Hm! Pentru că am văzut unde pică Uranus, am refăcut harta cu 8 fix.
Cred că nu reușesc să termin de recitit... La Vise.
" Merlin ", zi și tu o părere!
Casa I în Leu
Energic, curajos, are spirit de initiativa stiind sa conduca cu talent. Are o mare doza de orgoliu si incearca sa se impuna in fata celorlalti, pentru a fi recunoscut ca sef. Doreste sa atraga atentia pretutindeni pe unde trece. Are o vointa puternica, este corect si deasupra tertipurilor si exprima mandrie si demnitate in tot ce face. Este un bun organizator.
Soarele în Rac
Racul este a patra zodie, este guvernat de Luna, astfel incat Soarele in Rac este un amestec de influente ale Soarelui, ale Lunii si ale Casei a IV-a. In horoscopul fundamental in care Berbecul este la Ascendent, Racul este la nadir, iar vitalitatea este in procentul sau cel mai slab; de aceea subiectul al carui Soare este in Rac este inclinat spre indolenta, chiar daca nu este deloc bolnav, e lipsit de rautate, evita certurile. In familie se arata de un caracter linistit si amical, atata vreme cat nu i se cere sa lucreze prea mult. Acesta pozitie a Soarelui face prima parte a vietii sterila, dar aduce succesul in ultimii ani. Racul este un semn psihic; de aceea, cand Soarele se gaseste in el, nativul are o tendinta spre ocultism si adesea sa faca experiente psihice.
Soarele în Casa XII
Este semnul sufletului solitar care, ca un retras, se inchide departe de lume. Aduce un pericol de conflict cu autoritatile sau incapacitatea de a se adapta conditiilor vietii de familie; in orice caz, datorita dificultatilor ce vin una dupa alta, persoana isi petrece restul vietii intr-un exil voluntar sau impus, ca o straina printre straini. Cand nu e vorba de un caz atat de extrem, prima treime a vietii este de obicei risipita in eforturi zadarnice pentru a gasi echilibrul si a alege o cariera sau o profesie. Ca si pozitia Soarelui in Casa a VI-a, aceasta indica succesul intr-o functie avand legaturi cu spitalele, cu inchisorile; in orice munca in raport cu un laborator ca si chimist; da interesul fata de ocultism si gustul pentru cercetarile ciudate.
Luna în Rac
Luna in Rac da un caracter amabil, sociabil, simpatic dar indolent, dusman al oricarui efort fizic, moral sau mental. Acestor persoane le place sa fie dusi de curent si doar biciul necesitatii poate sa le stimuleze. Sunt adesea sensibile la conditiile psihice, mai ales daca Luna este in conjunctie cu Neptun sau cu Uranus: natura acestui aspect decide atunci daca influenta este sau nu favorabila. Aceasta pozitie da si iubirea de caminul familial si de confortul sau. Activeaza digestia si, in consecinta, actioneaza intr-un mod favorabil asupra sanatatii, daca aspectele sunt bune; daca sunt rele, va cauza tulburari digestive.
Luna în Casa XI
Luna in Casa a XI, in configuratie buna, da subiectului numerosi prieteni, mai ales printre femei; dar daca este stresata, cei care vor veni la el cu masca prieteniei o vor face in speranta de a obtine de la el un profit personal.
Luna în conjuncție cu Mercur (0°21)
Indica inteligenta, memorie buna, hipersensibilitate, stare de nervozitate. Individul este atras de schimbare pana la a-si produce pagube. Dispune de mari aptitudini pentru studiu, fiind un excelent teoretician. Are pasiuni si preocupari artistice, inclinate spre visare si poezie, dar si spre logoree.
Luna în sextil cu Uranus (2°25)
Indica imaginatie puternica, ambitie, calitati psihice, romantism, multi prieteni, o personalitate stralucitoare si plina de energie, beneficiind de succese neasteptate. Nativul poate avea relatii cu televiziunea, cinematografia, inventii moderne. Este atras de miraculos si de necunoscut; poate obtine succesul prin metode neobisnuite; are parte de prietenii feminine.
Și să zicem și de Uranus! Că prea e " moț " în vârful cerului!
Uranus în Casa X
Uranus in Casa a X-a indica un caracter original si excentric, dispretuind tot ceea ce este conventional, urmandu-si propriile idei, fara grija de ce cred sau spun ceilalti; acesti oameni sunt adesea considerati ca oaia neagra a familiei si tinuti la distanta; nu par a considera aceasta ostracizare ca pe un necaz, caci sunt gata sa sacrifice totul, chiar si viata, pentru o libertate absoluta. Aceste caracteristici aduc de asemenea discreditarea si opozitia opiniei publice. Viata este plina de schimbari bruste, in bine sau in rau, in functie de celelalte aspecte planetare dominante. Daca Uranus este foarte afectat, aceste persoane nu vor ajunge la nimic si nu vor avea niciodata nimic decat necazuri, griji, dezamagiri si esecuri. Cu Uranus bine aspectat, geniul se va revela si va fi cunoscut, cel putin intr-o anumita masura, cel mai adesea in lucrari cu orientari progresiste.
Acu', cum e?! Prost sau bine, aspectat? Luna aplică cu sextil!
