Lots of talk about the transiting North Node in Scorpio. But don’t forget about the transiting South Node in Taurus. The South Node is about old stuff that you need to let go of. And there’s more to it than meets the eye. Using an Evolutionary Astrology* technique, there’s a simple way to figure out how to work with this.
Look at your natal house that holds the sign Taurus. That’s where the South Node is transiting, and that’s the area of your life where past issues may be coming up. But if you look a bit deeper, you’ll see that this is not the whole story. The real issues are represented by the house where your natal Venus (ruler of Taurus) sits.
For example, transiting South Node in Taurus is moving through your 7th House. You’re being confronted with a stagnant partnership. Time to break out of that relationship rut. Right? Maybe…but consider this; if natal Venus is sitting in your 4th House of home and family, this suggests the real issue is your relationship patterns that were created in childhood. Take a look at your parent’s marriage, your feelings of self-worth that were established long ago, how you were loved, how you learned to love, etc. Start there before you even look at your relationship/partner.
And here’s the thing with the transiting Nodes; they’re not planets, so you won’t feel them as strongly. If you’re not tuned into the issues, you may not feel them at all. Which is another way of saying you have a choice (always) to move forward. Or not.
