What do the North and South nodes in Aries and Libra mean for us?
The Nodes are always in opposite signs, and as of July 17, 2023, they have just exited the Taurus-Scorpio axis and are ready to move along the Aries-Libra axis until January 2025.
When we think about the opposite nature of the signs, it makes sense that one half (the North Node) is what you are currently working on and the other half (the South Node) is what you already know. And in this case, the opposition of Aries and Libra is related to the “I” against the relationship.
Over the next 18 months, Gemini explains, we’ll be evaluating whether our relationships are contributing to our personal growth or whether we’re focusing too much on trying to make other people happy. “The balance between ‘mine’ and ‘our’ reaches a critical tipping point when the lunar nodes move into Aries (North Node) and Libra (South Node) by January 11, 2025,” they write for mindbodygreen.
As such, they suggest taking stock of your immediate environment and cutting ties with any energy vampires. “But note that real evolution comes from owning the role you play in any one-sided dynamic,” they add.
Generally speaking, Aries is a sign that revels in its individuality and sassy spirit. They have no problem asking for forgiveness instead of permission, and Gemini says we can all experience a new level of confidence and leadership inspired by the Aries North Node.
“At the same time,” they note, “the Libra South Node provides a sharp overview of any unproductive relationship habits, such as people-pleasing, cheating, or damaging relationships.”
So the name of the game over the next 18 months is to strike a balance between independence and companionship. “This important cycle has not happened for nearly two decades,” the twins add, “helping us all discover the fine art of diplomatic negotiation.”
