The author, Lauren Oliver, is Scorpio, with Mars conjunct the South Node in Capricorn. This reads like a manifesto for that position. Below is my Astral DNA delineation for that position
Mars Opposition North Node
This aspect actually means that Mars lurks on the South Node: under stress, they can default to mercenary mode. In fact, the traditional meaning of this aspect is that the person comes from military past lives. They have a warrior psyche, even if in ‘this life’, they’re a Yin Yoga teacher or a nail artiste. They have a stark mindset when it comes to other people; you’re either an ally or an adversary. Karmic Kryptonite: Weaponized Grudges & Toxic Resentments.
There is some value in a backward gaze at times, for perspective, you understand. Especially if you know how some astrological cycles echo and echo again.
BUT this is so potent and visceral; it’s resonant. The South Node is the point of the past, of your previous lives or themes you are gravitating away from. Mars is decisive and snappy. The part of your birth chart where you have Mars is where you’ll make command moves and wear whatever the consequences are. You’re hot-blooded about it, and you don’t care if it is a flashpoint or not. It’s where you’re in fight or flight mode. So how apt is it that the author is a Mars conjunct South Node person?
