Notes From Uranus On The South Node

Filed in ASTROLOGY

Fortitude Valley Street Art. Uranus conjunct South Node synchronicity

Uranus conjunct South Node is synchronicity, speedy no-fault divorces from your past, esoteric omens in the street, pop magic and chaos. Times are weird but good-weird if you’re zapping along with them.

This image is from a Mega Mystic member. She was walking along thinking of me when she turned a corner and saw this picture. I am taking that as an auspicious omen – it feels very Horus-Isis-Haute Neptune and I love esoteric street art.

It’s also – as the Horoscopes have been on about – an epic time to drastically divorce from your past. No fault. No rambling. Just a clean split. This post from another MM member, Neuromaverick’s  Silver Huang addresses just that.

 It is the unfortunate tendency of human beings to assume that a person is still the same as they were one, two, three or even five years ago. It is a very silly and unrealistic tendency, perhaps reflecting the fact that most humans do not engage in self-transformative practices. They remain constant, year after year, and consider it good.
I, however, do not have that luxury.
I change frequently. Very, very frequently. I see no need to stay in any one form or state.

 

She also cites Carlos Castaneda, of all people.  He was a Capricorn with Mercury in Sagittarius, Moon in Taurus and Aquarius Rising. He was also a Mars square Neptune guy! Some say he was a conperson and others that he enlightened them. He is, however, quotable and these thoughts below are super pertinent to the current astro.

 I have no routines or personal history. One day I found out that they were no longer necessary for me and, like drinking, I dropped them. One must have the desire to drop them and then one must proceed harmoniously to chop them off, little by little.
If you have no personal history, no explanations are needed; nobody is angry or disillusioned with your acts. And above all no one pins you down with their thoughts.
It is best to erase all personal history because that makes us free from the encumbering thoughts of other people.
I have, little by little, created a fog around me and my life. And now nobody knows for sure who I am or what I do. Not even I. How can I know who I am, when I am all this?

— Don Juan in Journey to Ixtlan, Carlos Castaneda

So with my sun at 12.57 aries square my nodes 12.11 cap/cancer, I noticed that my life, which had begun flashing before my eyes, is a very short tightly edited movie now. The zap zone being so personal has made me think the transits are only relevant totally when completely exact. All of this has been the previews.

The lights dim, I have popcorn for the featured presentation.

ah, all very true and in good / perfect timing.

when i locked eyes with aries ex in the subway earlier this week it definitely rattled this point home very dearly. he was the one who taught me how to be selifshly in love with my passion for art (because he was… that crazy aries)

if we ever see each other again, if he talks first, maybe that’s the pop quiz to see how i’ve evolved in that career since we last saw each other .. .

Hmmm, Uranus must be on my south node. I have a NNode return in libra very soon. Uranus has already conj my merc, my MC, now my S node and soon my sun. All in the 10th house Aries.

Have SN at 13 Aries, actually having a nodal return. With Uranus conjunct there is much to be mindful of. Sure when I run that chart it will be illuminating.

I dare say “patterns”. Patterns are energy. What we give our energy to can trap us or not. That is all “karma” is.

Once I understood this it changed my perspective on everything.

As my recent Full Moon meltdown was organic in the sense I was not aware of the astro, what I feel first off is that it is/was about moving beyond the fears and then on to more constructive things. You know, like one had to get the “gunk” out of the way. I love Mystic’s severing of the past which on a wider scale the world is going thru now. It just really looks like crap. Personally, I don’t think it’s by mistake that I have this nodal return at this time (and you too) with Uranus. It’s like it’s… Read more »

Also, another important thing I feel, is since SN/Ur is ruled by Mars, look to natal Mars in your chart. (Davidl, anyone else who has this transit), and contemplate where one can use their Mars more constructively….trim or prune it’s energy to streamline for effectiveness so to speak. With Mars in Gemini on my Asc what comes to mind is what I heard lately: The Pen is Mightier than the Sword. Put some mind power behind that thru meditation and letting the Shakti do its thing and fuqers have no idea… Meanwhile, change the world invisibly. This is where the… Read more »

*giggle* In my mind, it was an outhouse. Seems appropriate. I just looked the opposition up again and it’s not going to be exact for a few years. I thought I saw somewhere that the influence started at around 38, and that’s how old I’ll be this year. I wouldn’t be surprised, since of my Uranus placement, plus it’s discovery in 1977 when I was born. Always thought that was pretty cool too. I totally understand cart before the horse. I feel like a late bloomer in some aspects. Can’t get hung up about that though because things happen the… Read more »

So when you say Uranus on the South Node, you’re meaning the SN of the planet right? So as the great reformer, is Uranus dredging up long held cultural/historical resentments (karma) for clearing on a global consciousness scale?

sphinx

Yes, good questions. If the SN of the planet is calculated like this then what is the planet in a chart? Is it the middle of the wheel?
I don’t quite get the concept of the SN here. The planet is not totally tied up in the fate of humanity, I mean, she is pretty old… so many questions.

it’s the moon’s south node – the north node is currently transiting libra opposite.

I was wondering that too. I am in France at the moment and this recent spate of violence feels like it was waiting to happen for a long, long time. Maybe France’s past Algerian imperial mismanagement and mistaken immigration policy, and previous history in the Middle East is and the problems caused are coming home to roost so to speak……hhmmm, in which case we may see many more problems coming home to roost in the West.

hi Skarab,

yes, makes sense.

and I just wrote the words “coming home to roost” about some people in my sphere getting Zapped after abuses of power or trust.

skarab
skarab

Yes, just looked at France’s chart – interesting, it’s squarely in the ZZ. France has a Libra Sun (according to Liz Green)- the transiting NN is currently exactly ON its Sun. So Uranus in Aries SN exact opposite NN is going to shake things up.

There’s a huge rally in Paris today for solidarity against terrorism with 40 world leaders attending. The astro feels pertinent.

Hi cal. Lol. I seem to be using that phrase (coming home to roost) a lot recently, too…. what will hatch is the question.

sphinx

Sorry but Carlos Castaneda is NOT haute.
Unless you consider a cult leader who demands his band of ‘wives’ cut off all ties with their family (a pretty normal behaviour required by abusers), then adopts a girl who becomes his lover is haute. Which I so don’t.
Sadly I don’t think we can judge him by his books alone, which, incredible as they are, are not the full story.

Powerful feelings of inadequacy, power mongering and misuse of his native abilities psychically and personally. #MarsSquareNeptuneFail.

True. It is a fail on haute expression of that aspect. But what about those stupid women willing to give their power away in such a manner? Who is the fool? The fool himself or those that choose to follow him?

Well I don’t know the women’s charts, but I am sure we can find something to explain their zombie issues. 😉 Neptune conjunct Venus?

hehehe … that or the square/opposition which could possibly be more “zombie” in it’s delusional nature.

I’ve got venus qunincunx Neptune and have never been able to find an interpretation of the aspect. Actually I’m unsure what a qunincunx actually does! (I have a few of them related to neptune).

Yeah, quincunxes are beyond my ken, astrologically a bit refined for my blunt brain.

Many times people are oblivious to when they are being manipulated. If the man is question is knowingly twisting women’s minds and they THINK he’s helping them, I think that shows who is toxic and who is not.

Believe in taking responsibility for oneself, but I also do not believe in victim blaming. It’s a fine line.

prowlncrab
prowlncrab

That’s a good point too. And there are sociopathic type people who are extremely adept at manipulating/charming people to give over their power when normally they wouldn’t. Still if someone told me to cut ties with family and friends I would tell them to fuq right off …

There is a doco on youtube about him, apparently he was extremely funny, charismatic, smart, so when he proposes cutting off all ties, you know, it is for your spirit’s evolution. Like trad Catholic despots warn, you won’t be pure & free enough for the Eagle to embrace you in his wings with any baggage.

Interesting. That’s when I dropped Castaneda, when I got to the Eagle and all that. It all just seemed really extreme at that point; so in order to escape the Eagle I need to drop everything and everything in life that gives me pleasure? Forget it, I like pasta and wine and love, let the fuqing Eagle take me when I’m done. Kinda like the whole thing in Yogic thought that breaks food down into the three groups: Ragic, Tamasic, and something else: levels of “cleanliness”. Basically anything that tastes good makes you eat more and is in the “bad”… Read more »

They’re not usually so cut and dry about it.

They ALWAYS present this ‘better’ picture of if you let go of this, you gain this. But you don’t. You just surrender control in an unhealthy way. Some women get sucked in for decades.

Anyway, the women’s behaviour, foolish or not, is not the point as they not being lauded as haute anything.

Also this extreme nature of his requirements to separate yourself from all that you know, speaks volumes to me about the amount of ego he had, that it required such crazy lengths to attempt to quell it.
And it doesn’t work anyway. I know. I tried his way.

Ooh, had no idea that he had that type of character Sphinx, nothing about his personal life except what I’ve read of his books. ‘Castaneda’ was a bit of a byword for mystical progressive thought at the time he was circulating. To actually read his books, possibly a bit tedious the recount of the process of gaining power, and all the fights with the other brujos. I was very much intrigued by the idea of shamanism, and also that those books contributed to alternative awareness in the west at the time. And the author Lobsang Rampa turned out to be… Read more »

Ah, Journey to Ixtlan, my favorite of the Castaneda books. I got chills when I saw that cover.

I’m glad I’m down with the astro, drastically divorcing from my past. Purging 12 years’ worth of accumulated crap is cathartic, and (mostly) EASY. The hardest part was ditching my journals. Who’s gonna read them? When I thumbed through them, I was face to face with an old version of me. I can do a life review when I’m dead, no need for journals.

I recommend a rip the journal and burn fest. I did that with a bunch of mine. I read a few lines, whatever my eyes fell upon, as I reached for each page then let it go into the flames.

I did, too. But the shit took too damn long. So, unless there’s a bonfire handy I just shred them and recycle them. Put them to better use 🙂

I don’t know, a part of me is a bit sorry I burned my old diaries now. I like writing and perhaps one day looking over the old mistakes I made would have made good examples of what NOT to do for others. Creation and destruction are part of the same cycle.

Also, I don’t need to burn or obliterate something to prove it isn’t necessary to me I think.

yes i think i agree with this. I mean, each to their own of course and sometimes the catharsis of fire is needed. But I don’t want to burn my old words. I may have changed, a lot, but it doesn’t feel right to just burn me. I mean, I like me, most of the time. I have definitely burnt the odd letter or incantation here and there. but diaries? not for me.

to me it is more of an affectionate regard, or a respository of words that mean even more later on than my stream of consciousness realises at the time. Not a clinging-to-past thing.

I hear this on so many levels. When I arrived back in the O-Z after 12 years abroadI had sooo many people bitch at me about how “different” I was. Who was I supposed to be? I had lived 10 lifetimes in 12 years. I had lived in a various countries and known money and deep poverty, both financially and spiritually. That changes a human being who has risked everything, and lost everything. I know this though – I get what the last 5 years in the O-Z have been about.

“Who was I supposed to be? I had lived 10 lifetimes in 12 years.” Totally hear you. It’s the same for me, under different circumstances. I dropped a lot of “friends” and am very sparing with who I allow in my personal life now. I have far more important things to get on doing than to waste precious resources pandering to the inadequacies and narrow-minded thinking of others! 😉 Adversity is ALWAYS a blessing.

When I don’t honor my instincts, trouble occurs. I used to also have a bad habit of making excuses for people.

I try to remind myself that they are opportunities for growth, not set-backs or arrows from the bow of karma. When we’re comfortable and we know our place inevitably and eventually there will be stasis as our energy pools around us and cannot flow and expand.

Saturn-Jup-Pluto AND Lilith together?? That must be bonkers. Ive got the Sat-Jup-Pluto signature too, but not with Lilith. Its hard enough with that there as it is. Mines in 4th. If you had that in the 3rd – did you get a lot of flack for how you communicate growing up? My childhood was far from easy.

Childhood was tough.

More precisely it’s Saturn-Jupiter-Hekate conjunct and Lilith-Juno conjunct. Pluto hangs out in the middle, all alone. All in Libra 3rd House.

Actually I love Lilith and her oft-times wild and chaotic energy. Harness it well and it’s a great onside for transformation. Bitch energy is good.

This resonates with me so much right now.

In the past two weeks I’ve threatened to delete my Social media accounts because I felt stuck in old habits and socially stale. While each person I’m linked to has had an important impact on my life, some have moved on but their footprint remains. Stuck in their last moment of relevance – which could be as far as 5 years ago.

We are constantly learning and evolving. At least most of us are 😉
Why limit ourselves to a time before the knowledge we have now was acquired?

Social media is tricky because it is tempting to just dump or share mindlessly, almost by knee-jerk reaction. Our use of it must be strict and constantly reevaluated. Also you are right in that when you have added people who know you from 1, 2, 3, even 5 years ago, their thoughts, assumptions and expectations of you can be very entrapping. I particularly felt this on Facebook, so I deactivated my Facebook, even though social media pundits insist it is still THE platform for 2015, and have pruned my social media activity down to only Twitter, and that is strictly… Read more »

Skye

Yes, mindlessly. You are spot on.
I think that’s at the core of what’s letting fb down. A constant stream of food, baby, kitten photos and motivational blurbs.
For a platform that supposedly connects us all better, it only serves to distance us more by reducing our interaction on a meaningful level.

We declutter our material stuff so maybe it’s time to address our virtual clutter

Yes, social media is tricky and I’m one for culling it all periodically but you have me thinking about other saved and stored ‘stuff’ that I ‘might’ want to read or use later… that might have slipped through the gatekeeper and yep, energetically it’s still clutter. I wonder if our concept of hoarding has changed in the world from physical to data? I also think it can create irrational fears about loosing things, inability to easily access things, security of things etcs. Definitely needs good structure and boundaries to keep the relationship with it from becoming overloard/serf or is that… Read more »

I agree with what someone else wrote on here {lost in the stream of comments} that essentially, hoarding is hoarding, be it physical or non-physical. My archivist wars with my destructor on occasion and I must say that the destructor has won on more occasions. The most recent incarnation of my archives only extend back a year or two. The oldest items I have are my personal journals that go back nearly a decade and have been neatly scanned. Rarely read them though. Am thinking they will come in handy if I ever desire to write my memoirs. Irrational fears… Read more »

I don’t have many left myself but there are some and scanning is an idea I hadn’t considered actually.

I am actually pretty good at clearing out anything that has an unwanted or old energy attached to it in the main but like all things, some mementos can be harder to release than others 🙂

It is a modern day version of hoarding though for sure!

I use it more to keep abreast on ‘alternative’ perspectives on everything from politics to sexual health to music and cinema and spiritual ‘thangs. Bought a new Android to boot for a great deal.

I could NOT AGREE MORE! As soon as I commit to something, I automatically somehow decide to break that commitment. So I have to work on a combination of how I will feel and what I will ‘have’ when I sidle closer to my objectives. Rebellion lives in many forms, lol.

My very dearTaurus -Aqua moon papa turned me on to Carlos Castaneda (he passed before I could really have a discussion with him about it but there were several in his library of books). Also Aldous Huxley and Lobsang Rampa. I remember those paperback covers so clearly.
He had a rigorous intellect. said it was the only good thing to come out of hard core Jesuit schooling.

Nice post SH. Agree wholeheartedly and often clear old works from my collection, can’t revive an old piece that I’ve moved from or no longer connect to and rely more on impermanence than most things and people and my ability to adapt.

It is isn’t it, that is.. until a creation is complete Then it becomes it’s own entity, breathes it’s own life, engages whom it does.. intrigues or not, commands attention or quietly holds position, changes a culture or one persons view, enduring or fading, (perhaps both) like all living things.
