Mercury Conjunct The North Node

Mercury Conjunct the North Node

Mercury is on the North Node in Leo until mid-week. The Daily Horoscopes are all across this. And as you know, the Monthly Horoscopes have Mercury in Leo ‘cultural dictates’ lol.

Broad Leo themes include photography, photographs and photographers. A statistically disproportionate amount of people with strong Leo influence are photogenic/brilliant photographers.

Anyway, a potential rogue Mercury on the Node outcome is that you might be presented with incontrovertible photographic evidence of something, It will be most likely to do with your past but perhaps also of a dimension of your life you’re not looking at. OR – okay – even just a photo that is a W.T.F. trigger.

But, because this IS the North Node we are talking about – a beacon to your ideal future – whatever image you are boggling over WILL light your best way forward.

Is anyone experiencing this rogue outcome of Mercury Conjunct the North Node?

Is this wondrously on point, I wonder, re Mercury -in-Leo and the Leo/photography link? My local Cafe/Bookstore owner, (who is single- handedly reviving the live poetry scene in my regional town), is, upon my asking, a Leo. And, of course, she is, this week, commencing a series of portrait shots of her customers. Midst discussion with the said lovely cafe owner, I find out that her, (also Leo) chef, has undergone recently, rather extreme hair (mane) morphs! To prove this, I am shown selfies of her recent dramatic changes, from dread locks, to fizzed up pink hair, titled “Fairy Floss”,… Read more »

I finally started watching The Crown last night. I found it interesting that King George VI gave Queen Elizabeth II a camera as a gift on her wedding day. Apparently she is a keen photographer. Very Leo.

I’m NN in Leo 5th House & love photography, not sure I’m any good at it though.

I’m liking this astro but it is also scaring the pants off me. Got immersed in a totally new world and hope to goddess that it will come off one way or another. Cannot get over the synchronistic vibe I get with a bloke that all this is revolving around currently. He could become my new manager/work colleague. Its too odd to mention all the stuff that has gone on. Just hark backs to my previous life and his future yearnings being exactly mine. So I dare not say more as I do not wish to jinx it. But it… Read more »

Interesting. I am having super vivid, movie-like dreams lately that seem to go on forever. I also went off instagram for months and just started checking it frequently lately. Parts of it really bum me out, such as recently seeing an old friend who I had a bit of a fling with a few years ago (who I continued to hold a bit of a flame for) post about getting a dog with someone who I presume is his new girlfriend. Ugh. But also, I think it’s a good kick in the pants for me to just get on with… Read more »

This is freakazoid:
My mate was trying to send me a document (my fight with the Elucidation Dept) and he couldn’t get it to scan it or take a pic, of it, on his phone. He said it was working yesterday alright. He said what is wrong with you (me) that this won’t send

2 days ago my sag friend randomly sent me photos from when we were about 10 years old. Then that night I found travel photos from about 2011. My first overseas trip and deeply cherished. But that time in my life was also difficult and I have mentally held on to pieces of this unhappiness. Looking at other photos from that time, it’s like I don’t recognise myself in those photos and I realised how much distance there was between then and now. Spacious. A weird kind of relief. I was thinking maybe now I can drop this and move… Read more »

Well that’s weird… while I was reading the comments, my sister sent me a photo of us from maybe 1979? Whoa. Interesting about the Leo association with photographers… I consider myself (and some others do too) a pretty good amateur photographer… I have Leo rising. Until a few days ago, I was posting my stuff to Instagram, but I had a chilling experience– the second one, at that– with evidence it was “listening” to my conversations while the phone was sleeping… so I deleted the app. My Moon in Scorpio is admittedly paranoid, but insists on privacy. Also, I just… Read more »

I have not been able to watch Snowden as I am already Moon in Scorpio.. I mean hostile at being spied on! I don’t have photos of myself or family on the internet but there is always a relative who has to put things out there. I am considering getting rid of my smart phone if we go 5G.

Another difficult hair experience for me… 🙁 Hair would be a Leo issue and a communication issue (mercury), yes? Merc and NN are opposing my Aqua Sun right now. Anyway…. definitely NOT wanting to be photographed right now! Ugh!
I’ll see how my guy is going…..he’s got Venus and Mars in Leo….. (and has naturally gorgeous long hair that he never cuts or messes with).

Hair is always an issue for Leos. Of course Aquas do it effortlessly.

…….aaaand there’s the photo! The photographic evidence.. This person had the audacity, after screwing up my hair and telling me that they won’t fix it, to post ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos of my hair to their instagram, showing their ‘great work’. OMG. This person is all about bigging up themselves and not caring about their client. At least the photos are of the back of my head and not my face. But, ugh! The principle of doing this! Who does that?!

In fact when I’m trying to pick a person’s sign colour-damaged hair leads me to think Leo Sun or Asc. Of course there a many many indicators other than that.

Interesting… I’m Crab rising, myself. Maybe I was suffering the effects of Venus currently in Leo opposing my Aqua Sun, or Saturn sitting on my own Venus in Cap.

As a photographer, I really appreciate this post and the fascinating comments on how this transit is affecting everyone. As for me, I am assembling an exhibit of my photographs over the past 5 years with a local musical production. I’m excited because this will be a capsule version of a larger exhibit that I will show when the production moves to our city’s opera house this fall. This means big things for all of our futures.

Wondering if this only applies to photo images? Considering it’s Mercury and the digital communication we all live in, could it also potentially be words we read on a screen? I mean I haven’t taken a screen shot of it, but if I did would that not be a photo of my communication? Using myself as an example: I sent an email out to a friend/ex-lover after not having heard from him and our last communication left me feeling vaguely bummed, which I emailed him to say so. Then the response, which included him saying that my last communication sounded… Read more »

So, what do you think … watching a performance of well-known local photographers dancing/improvising while the choreographer/dancer videotapes from within the performance, and also giving up the videocamera to the other dancer/photographers. My thoughts watching were about the genius of inviting photographers to dance and how they would be using their sense of space and lighting and moment to inform their performance. It was also extremely sexual and had an underground sensibility to it that was dark, intriguing, intense. Transiting NN & transiting Merc in my 8th house.

Facebook memory of a photo from nine years ago of me and my grandmother. I almost never post to Facebook or share Facebook memories but I did just that this morning before I even read this post… I am definitely feeling her presence today. For example, I rarely buy grapes but they looked really good yesterday at the market and they were out of strawberries. She ALWAYS had grapes, that was one of the snacks she used to give us. And I have some of her bowls here at the house and without thinking anything of it I put some… Read more »

I’m about to have to dig through a bin of old photos looking for pics of two people who recently passed (I’m sounding super Pluto/Moon right now, eh) – my stepfather and an old friend – for upcoming memorial services/celebrations of life.

Also I think I’m becoming some kind of sports jock. Wth? It’s like, sport is a kind of blissful relief from having to apply any intellectual energy at all. You just randomly learn names and numbers. You literally watch people move around catching or hitting something, or drive really fast and you start to learn things about them and follow them as they repeat the same moves in different locations or at different times (if you think I sound wierd? mars in Aquarius is really sinking in) It’s so wierdly soothing.

Sport is not just about winning, it is the only thing. Is your NN in da 3rd / Aries 9th? Sport is ‘that’ microcosm l see life thru. Ronaldo missing his penalty the other day. Stosur and her demons. The 3 Amigos, l mean Smith, Bancroft and Warner. The bravery n guts of Anna Meares. Tex ‘Conundrum’ Walker. I should’ve been a sportz writer. Other areas of culture do not cover the highs n lows of life so graphically.

Ha, I don’t think I could match your level PF. My Libra node is 4th house but I think it’s my Venus Aries that derived all the happiness here. There’s only so much tea and chats I can hack. How’s this though. Niki Lauda is pisces with cap moon Gemini rising. His north node is in Aries though. Of course he was destined to be a sports champion. James Hunt, his partner in crime / foil / nemesis? Essential scaffolding for the Libra south node, he needed someone to bounce off, compete with, a friend, ally, and a co-competitor.

In the industry in which I work it is mandatory to bang on about sport in order to be heard in meetings or make the tiniest of dents in the beer-can ceiling. I can pass as knowledgeable in just about any sport. It’s hilarious.

Not so much graphically as performatively and publicly, maybe. I was watching some footage of Ricciardo catch a football that was thrown (pegged? Tossed?) By the famous American footballer whose name escapes me just now. There were hundreds of people watching this and press, cameras to capture the moment. Like this is literally just a guy catching a ball. (Ok yes, what a guy indeed!) But still.. “Sports star catches ball thrown by other sports star while standing on very expensive boats” is the basic headline lol. It’s the equivalent of Malibu Stacey getting a new hat.

Anna Meares is my favourite female sporter. She has nudged out Steffi. No Aussie in recent memory has put in, overcome, such odds to be a multi-champion. My Venus in Virgo and Cap Dsc is speaking.

That was my a-ha moment in understanding the allure of sports. Just like I enjoy going to museums and seeing the old (and new) masters, top of their game, best in the biz and all that– so a sports fan enjoys seeing the best players competing against each other. It made sense to me when I thought of it that way.

Steffi Graf’s effortless forehand is the equivalent of Roy Orbison’s singing; both had compounding results from minimum exertion. Seemingly!
Ian Chappell’s unfashionability was only matched by Dylan’s. They’re both greater than the sum of their parts.

YAAAAAS! The switch over of opinion towards sports happened a little while ago for me. I’m not so much into the details and being able to spout off numbers but I totally GET the unattached ability to be able to converse about this without much of an investment! For you it’s intellectual energy, me it’s emotional. I know I know there is much emotional investment in sports for many people, but for me there isn’t and in turn I’m able to 1. RELAX 2. ask genuine questions to people about sports, their thoughts and feelings etc, without feeling like I… Read more »

I’ve been contemplating that, and mostly I feel the urge to do it, but not in such externalized ways (retro afterall.) Like with baseball games to be self-talking myself to keep myself in it vs. allowing myself to drift. And not trying to externalize that need to focus by getting super hyped up and or/aggressive during the game. It would be Sooooo out of place not just in general, but with some of this group as well.

Funny you should mention photographs. I was jolted by 3 photographs of undocumented women migrant workers crouching during an immigration raid in my country. It spurred me to write a missive condemning pathetic governance. However, the organisation I represent completely did a backflip and decided we didn’t have a formal position on the issue hence refused to publish the letter. I was completely mystified, I was part of this organization precisely because we were ‘feminists’ and committed to developmental justice. Now, we pick and choose issues that we purport to defend!!?

Getting some art photos printed. Revising a crash course in Photoshop. The print lab people were so nice and patient.. Gawd. I hope they turn out ok. How do Leo’s cope? Serious question. My default is grim-face until it comes off ok. But my life for here on will be full of creative cliffhangers. I need some proper coping – no not coping, I need some proper Leo ways to handle myself. Like, being judged by strangers. In my current perception there truly is no worse fate in life. Public speaking, no worries (nervous but I can do it). Dying,… Read more »

I think Leo’s of the type you are thinking probably assume that everyone is as easy-breezy and self oriented as themselves. No biggy! Potentially Leo is the narcissist in a good way, generous and accepting of other open, interfering, creative loudmouths. I suppose they think if the rest of the crowd don’t get you, “tomorrow is another day”? Did you make the art photos yourself? What are they of? Sounds amazing to have a “cast iron ego”, if you ever find a local smithy that forges them I am interested too.. 🙂 Alternatively it would be a fab art concep,… Read more »
