How to handle Transit North Node conjunct the South Node? Once every nine and a half years, it compels you to consider the path not trodden.
I’m presently experiencing an opposition of the transiting Nodal Axis to my natal one, placing the transiting North Node upon my natal South Node at 14 Virgo and in turn the transiting South Node on my natal North Node in the 9th House. So the syndrome, you are talking about in the Horoscopes for many of the signs is bought home to me with extra strength.
This is proving to be quite the confusingly intense transit, perhaps rather understandably. At this time, I feel as though my internal compass has gone completely haywire, and I’m completely baffled as to what direction to take with my life. This has been brought forward quite significantly by the recent Mutable Grand Cross action, and “Hyper-Flux” would almost be an understatement as to what I’m experiencing.
Heart-Mind Versus The Head-Mind
Internally, it’s coming down to a peculiar case of the Heart-Mind versus the Head-Mind. I’m on the tail end of withdrawing from a fairly big Head-Mind elected life path which I failed to find any deeply felt joy in, and in turn, I’m looking back to the Heart-Mind. But, after a fair few rounds of Neptunian-induced heartache and haze, I’m hesitant to put much faith in it. But there’s the challenging thing, ones Piscean North Node (my Heart- Mind) almost seems to command taking those sorts of intuitive leaps of faith, and truth be told, they’ve often been the decisions within which the most valuable treasure has been uncovered. One’s South Node (my Head-Mind) however, tends to unsurprisingly be bound by carefully calculated logic.
It’s a bizarre thing for someone such as myself who is so traditionally bound by overwhelming Virgoan logic (Sun, Lilith, South Node, and a Merc/Vesta conjunction are all stuffed into my Virgo bits) to be afflicted by this. I just know that there’s gold to be mined here, one way or another. The question is, how? How does one navigate this peculiarly flipped polarity and engage the higher potential of all involved? I feel that there is a balance to be found, but the question is where?
As such, I find myself wondering on whether you or perhaps your readers, had any wisdom to share?
How To Navigate The Flipped Polarity Of Transit North Node Conjunct South Node?
First of all, having the North Node on the South Node IS a mind-warp of transit – it’s only every nine and a half years. And it sounds like it is doing exactly the job that it is supposed to be doing. It invites you to consider paths that you have not trodden for some time. It’s so hard to just sit with the awareness of other routes you could have taken, let alone regrets. Most people are tempted to start generating logical explanations of their narrative choices. Or they sink into being maudlin about it.
And, you identify, it is also the South Node crossing the North Node! You cannot go a day without meeting a ghost from your future or getting a clear hit on your life path. At the same time, you encounter people who are flamboyantly serving as role models or cautionary tales.
Ghosts From Your Future
Keep a diary. Journal everything in a literal actual A4 exercise book. Writing it down, as opposed to typing, activates a different part of your brain. Maybe it’s because the motion conjures up a particularly receptive dimension of your psyche. Writing with a pen – especially a metal one – attracts, rather than generates insights.
Also, do Head and Heart-Mind have to be separate? Your North Node in Pisces is about to be infused with Neptune Vibe for the next several years, long after the Hyper Flux has boogied away. That’s the real game in Astral City. The artificial distinction between head and heart paths/mind will be the first construct to dissolve.
