Time to embrace the sheer joy of being alive and be proud of who you are.

It’s an auspicious time to be more playful and to experience more pleasure & creative self expression.

Earlier this month there was a Lunar Nodal shift. North Node moved from Virgo into Leo. The north & south Nodes are not planets but points formed by the orbital paths of the Sun & Moon.

The Nodes play a key role in showing us the next step in our evolution. They spotlight what we need to focus on to grow & transform individually and collectively. North Node is like a compass guiding us on a soul level to find our true path and deepest purpose. Our Mission.

Dare to be yourself!

This shift can inspire us to be more daring
and find the courage to follow our passion.
Leo ‘rules’ the heart (every sign relates to
a part of the body). We are being encouraged
to open our heart, it’s now the season to live
from the truth of our heart.




Symbolism of the Sun glyph

Because the Sun rules Leo, let’s look at the symbolism of this glyph. The circle is a universal symbol for spirit throughout the ages and different cultures. It has no beginning and no end. The dot in the centre represents the spirit’s manifestation in a physical body. It’s conscious awareness, can also stand for returning to our centre.



North Node in Virgo/ South Node in Pisces

Since November 2016 the north Node has been traveling through Virgo and the south Node through Pisces. The focus has been on practical matters, duty and hard work. Virgo is a dutiful sign, it’s strength is about developing skills, being of service, and getting more efficient and effective. Other Virgo concerns are self improvement, health, educating ourselves about nutrition and applying better health habits. It embodies the urge to purify our body.

Healing and the relationship of mind/body are related to the Virgo/Pisces axis.

With the Virgo/Pisces axis there’s been a lot of confusion about what’s true and what’s not. There’s been manufactured smoke screens (Pisces) by governments & corporations to deflect up from the truth. Hopefully some of us have used our analytical faculties, which is the best of Virgo, to cut through the illusions (Pisces).

More on the Leo/Aquarius axis

Leo is a fixed fire sign. Fire has faith in life and is more willing to take risks than the other zodiac signs. It’s spirited and vibrant with a larger than life spirit. Let’s access this flamboyant energy to enliven our life! Fixed means the emphasis is on will power, with qualities of stubbornness and persistence.

Aquarius relates to groups, being a team player and to a sense of community. It’s associated with people power, grass root organisations and our activities with groups of friends. On a broader level it’s the sisterhood/brotherhood of humanity.

While the south Node is transiting through Aquarius, we need to be mindful not to let other people’s expectations of what we should be doing limit our choices. What rocks your boat? What turns you on? I don’t mean sexually, but the whole you. Do you know that feeling when you are doing something you love? You can feel it in your body. You feel energised. That’s what we need to cultivate at this time.

That’s our passion!


Grand Trine and the North Node

From 9th May till mid June, north Node makes a Grand Trine with Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius. That configuration is 3 planets or points that are 180 degrees apart.
This is a very fortunate combination. It’s an opportunity to bring innovation and change without creating instability. With the added advantage that it can make a positive difference to our collective future.

New insights and ideas can be applied in practical ways. Social change (Uranus) can continue to happen through new business models (Saturn). The social enterprise model may flourish and become more popular.

Seen at various civil rights protests.



Since Uranus entered Aries in 2010 a new paradigm is knocking at our door so to speak. Uranus in Aries is a bold and restless vital energy that we can make use of to manifest our visions. It can’t be ignored, it needs to be channeled. Otherwise it turns into fanaticism, military aggression or volatile upheaval.



We’ve had plenty of challenging times for years. But 2017 is different, there’s a chance for more stability. This is because Saturn & Uranus are trine for most of the year (and the second half of 2018 as well). This is now the time to apply what we have learnt since 2012. It’s time to use our unique talents and gifts in authentic ways. The cosmic cycles are here to support us.

Any goals, ideas, project or businesses that we conceive of this year will have a good chance to consolidate in 2018. This is because Saturn will move into Capricorn (december 2017) and Uranus into Taurus (may 2018). Both are earth signs, so the emphasis shifts from fire to earth, which is practical and productive.
The north Node stays in Leo till 6th November 2018.


Look to where the Leo north Node falls in your chart it will show the area of your life you need to embrace.
