The Tango of Saturn & the South Node
If things have been a little tense in your world, there’s a reason for that. You see, since late April Saturn in his home sign of Capricorn has been doing an extremely rare dance backwards with the South Node of the Moon. This is so rare, that we haven't seen this in our lifetimes! Tomorrow, they will be exactly conjunct, but will continue their very close tango right through this Summer’s eclipse season until early October.
This is stirring up all things karmic for the whole world. You see Saturn is the planet of karma and hard work. He shows us our weaknesses and figuratively stands over us until we fix them. The South Node has strong ties to our karma and innate abilities and challenges…that which we brought with us from our past lives and are ready to resolve in this one.
With such a strong connection to the South Node, there is a sense that the hand of destiny is guiding our lives. Now that we are entering the Summer months and the Sun is joining with the North Node, we will be getting a sense of our purpose and direction in life once we resolve any issues that have and will present themselves over the next few months. This eclipse season will be a time when we can more readily exercise our free will to move our lives forward along the path of our choosing!
If you have planets or sensitive points in the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn from 13° to 20°, then you are especially primed for this once in a lifetime mixed-blessing…it may not feel fun while it’s happening, but if you lean into the deep work that you’re being asked to do, you will undoubtedly have the opportunity to jumpstart your whole game!
Now this is happening for the whole world! We are all getting a deep cleaning and overhaul of any and all systems or programs that are no longer working, but this is much like cleaning a fish tank. Have you ever cleaned a fish tank? The moment you begin, the tank looks 10 times dirtier than it did before, but once you’re complete, that tank is sparkling clean!

I’m envisioning a sparkly clean and new world for us all…it just may seem a bit murky for a while yet!
