The transiting Nodes are almost done with Scorpio/Taurus. On February 18th, the North Node will move into Libra, and the South Node into Aries.
The transiting South Node hi-lights situations to release, and the transiting North Node opens up new potentials (within the context of the natal houses the Nodes are transiting through). As the Nodal transits of the Scorpio/Taurus axis wind down, it's a good time to think back on what survival-based habits (South Node in Taurus) were holding you back, and what full-throttle authenticity (North Node in Scorpio) was beckoning you forward. As I noted in this post, the rulers of the Nodal signs tell the whole story on what you need to let go of, and move towards. In the case of Scorpio and Taurus, that would be your natal Venus (ruler of Taurus) and Pluto (ruler of Scorpio).
As the South Node enters Aries, you'll be looking at how/where you take action and put yourself first. The house in your chart (with Aries in it) will tell part of the story, but your natal Mars (ruler of Aries) will describe what you actually have to let go of. You're not completely denying your Mars/Aries, you're just letting go of unproductive actions/scenarios that have been limiting you.
Libra in your chart will be the area that the transiting North Node will be encouraging you to develop. Your natal Venus (ruler of Libra) will tell you more. Yes, the same Venus that ruled the transiting South Node in Taurus. But now, you're working with Venus in the context of relationships (Libra) rather than self-preservation (Taurus). It's not just about you.
Here's some key words to give you ideas on how to work with this Nodal axis:
- me first/us
Because the North Node represents territory that lies outside your comfort zone, expect some challenges to arise from relationships. Not just romantic (although those will be important). All one on one partnerships, plus anything involving social graces, projection and appearances. What you put out/project will matter over the next couple of years. Another way to look at it; the North Node is what you need to learn, the South Node is what you already know. This will be your relationship learning curve.
