North Nodes in Gemini and South Nodes in Sagittarius
From May 2020 to Jan 2022 this transit will be in effect. It represents our global destiny over the next 1.5 years. You can look back to ~19 years ago for individual themes that will, in some way, repeat themselves. If you have your own North Nodes of the Moon natally in Gemini this is a particularly important turning point in your destiny, ditto if you have them natally in Sagittarius (the opposite sign).
Gemini generally is asking us all to see both sides to a situation, communication, listening to others and being open to new things coming our way. This is a time of gather the ‘facts’- I “just want the facts ma’am” type of thinking and processing information. This is a time to let go of judging others and being self-righteous or making assumptions without the facts or listening carefully to others. This has an Aquarian like feel in that it asks us to really listen to others and incorporate that in our thinking and subsequent actions. Careers in all types of communication are favored, e.g. writing, teaching, presenting. This is us living in a society with many different views, philosophy & individual paths- all need to be respected & considered for the bigger picture. Enjoy the present moment (s) whilst planning. When it comes to relationships freedom to do what you want is prominent where “variety is the spice of life”. Diplomacy and tact will go a long way during the next 1.5 years! Charm can be encouraged by developing the “art of small talk”.
I’m mainly speaking to transits to just the Natal Chart but, you can consider the Solar return (an influence over a year) and Lunar return (an influence over a month) charts too especially by exact conjunction.
If you have the North Nodes in Gemini by birth, then this transit will give you energy and power to express your destiny. If you have other natal planets also conjunct your natal North Nodes of the Moon, then these planets energy will be set off too. This starts off a new, positive cycle for you & the timing may be reflected by the ‘exact’ degree point of both your natal North Nodes and the transiting North Nodes. Fortunate, important people may come into your life that are of great importance to you expressing your individual destiny.
If your North Nodes are in the opposite sign, Sagittarius, where the South Nodes of the Moon are by transit then you will need to incorporate some aspects of yourself that are very familiar and let go and instead point your arrow to the area (house or houses) that is represented by Gemini. You could have to let things or people go at this time as your transform the way you think about them in your life. This especially applies to the real reason or meaning of life and the legacy you feel you need to leave.
Timing can potentially me more accurate when the transiting North Nodes (in this case Gemini) are aspecting our angles (Ascendant, Descendant & Midheaven especially).
North Nodes in Gemini conjunct your natal Midheaven marks a time when you may progress professionally, your career shines and new doors open for you. Those in power may provide you with positive career growth. This is in contrast where the 4th house (where the south node presides) is not so favorable, perhaps a sacrifice in the home as a result of a forward moving career occurs. Your parents, especially your mother may be important for you during the next 1.5 years. This could literally involve a house move as a result of a positive development in your career.
North Nodes in Gemini conjunct your Ascendant marks a time when you have fortunate events and people come into your life. You can be “in the right place, at the right time” now. If you are lucky enough to be born with the North Node conjunct the Ascendant this is a life theme for you. With the South Nodes in your 7th house this could have your partners not be cooperative and could involve extra burdens for you. If you have the North Nodes in Gemini conjunct your Descendant in your 7th house then the “other” either marriage or business partner, or both, could have the upper hand & you may need their support at this time. This could be a favorable time to meet a partner, marriage or business or both.
Linda Goodman discusses the importance of the Part of Fortune and the Vertex and the North Node transiting these points- I refer you to her website under the reference section below (1).
North Nodes by transit & effects on Natal Planet placements by activating that planets specific energy. In conjunction with Pluto- great courage and strength to persevere & can be a time of psychological growth of note. It can be a time of great transformation and transition where you may choose a new path in life including new relationships. The house this occurs in will reflect the area of your life involved in transformation & release.
North Nodes by transit in conjunct with Neptune can bring general confusion & fogginess to the house involved. Take care with any deception, lying or ‘hidden’ agendas currently. Consult with experts if warranted. It can indicate drug or substance abuse where you take the high road. It can mark a time when dreams really do come true.
North Nodes by transit conjunct with Uranus brings the unexpected to the house involved. Out of the blue, unusual things or people come into your life. You may have a great desire to break free- you may decide to become an astrologer. At its highest Uranus wants to provide enlightenment so, this could be a seminal moment when you literally ‘wake up’.
North Nodes by transit with Saturn suggest that authority figures or responsibilities take on a more important role. It can mark a time of new responsibility, for good or ill. This can be a very karmic time as Saturn rules karma. Your chickens come home to roost!
North Nodes by transit with Jupiter can indicate time of good fortune but also loss. And weight gain or loss can occur. Equally, small animals, or horses (Jupiter rules Sagittarius and the glyph of half man, half horse) may be more important at this time. Publishing a book or a move abroad could all be on the books!
North Nodes by transit with Mars gives us courage to pursue a certain path or directive especially as it applies to a pioneering new way forward. Energy generally can be abundant- take care with potential angry outbursts though!
North Nodes by transit with Venus can signify a new love of importance comes into your life. But it can just as easily be a time of lots of positive social interactions and events.
North Nodes by transit with Mercury can bring all forms of communications into the spotlight including small journeys. You may be making important announcements to others- ensure the message is clear. Young people could be more important for you including your children.
North Nodes by transit and the Sun can indicate job or home changes are on the cards. People of importance may come in at this time. Pay attention especially with who ‘comes into’ your life- it may not be obvious now but later, what influence they will have positively on your life.
North Nodes by transit and the Moon suggest that the home, family, your mother, perhaps parents will be important for you now. Someone new may enter your life that provides a nurturing role for you. You may also make a conscious decision to change habits you acquired early in life that no longer serve you.
