North Node Taurus - South Node Scorpio
January 18, 2022 until July 17, 2023

Astro Memes for major aspects for January 2022 on DrStandley.com

The North Node moves into Taurus and the South Node moves into Scorpio on DrStandley.com

The North Node has moved into Taurus and the South Node has moved into Scorpio on January 18, 2022 until July 17, 2023.

The North and South Node change signs every two (2) years and always move backward (retrograde) in degrees at about 03 minutes per day. This means the Nodes enter at 29 degrees 59 minutes 59 seconds and move backward in degrees. It also means that they move around the zodiac backward in signs.

The North and South Node are 'the most' sensitive points in the chart. It is important to understand that the Nodes 'are not' planets. They are actually 'specific points of interest' that are created when the Moon orbits the Earth, which intersects with the Earth's orbit around the Sun. The intersection of the Moon, Earth and Sun creates the specific and sensitive Nodal point of interest.

The North Node, also called the Ascending Node is closest to the North Pole and the South Node, also called the Descending Node is closest to the South Pole. The Nodes are always in opposite signs. There is never an exception when they are not opposites; therefore, the Nodes are always exactly 180 degrees apart on opposite sides of the chart.

The white blurry pic to the right is my eBook - 'Understanding and Using the North and South Node'. It's 5 bucks!

North and South Node e-Book

In ancient astrology the North Node is also called, "The Dragon's Head" or "Caput Draconis, which is considered a favorable or beneficial point. The South Node is also called, "The Dragon's Tail" or "Cauda Draconis," which is considered an unfavorable or malefic point. Caput in Latin means head. Cauda in Latin means tail. Draconis means dragon.

The North Node is where 'the cup runneth over' and the South Node is the 'drain or bottomless pit'. The North Node is where you cannot fail and the South Node is the hole in the chart. No matter how much energy you put into it, the energy falls right through as if you had a hole in your pocket. You can stick all of the money in the world into that pocket and it would drop right through.

The North Node is the direction you should be headed, toward the future (dharma) and the South Node is the direction you should move away from, which is the past (karma). The South Node is something you have already learned and you need not relearn it as you already have the skills and tools. The North Node is where you will succeed using the tools and skills you have already learned.

We each have a North and South Node in our Natal Chart. There was a 1-1/2 year period around our birth date where the Nodes were in a certain sign. Now we are entering a 1-1/2 year period where the North Node is in Taurus and the South Node is in Scorpio. The Nodes are ALWAYS opposite 180 degrees of each other. Always! So we not only have to focus on our natal North Node and downplay our South Node, but now we also have to focus on the North Node in Taurus and downplay the South Node in Scorpio. See the North and South Node Transiting Calendar Through The Signs Here!

The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius had been transiting since May 6, 2020 until January 18, 2022. That's right at about 1-1/2 years. Since the Nodes move backward in degrees and Sun Signs, this means they now enter Taurus/Scorpio. After 1-1/2 years they will then enter Aries/Libra. After another 1-1/2 years they will then enter Pisces/Virgo. After another 1-1/2 years they will enter Aquarius/Leo. Get the picture?

Uranus in Taurus on DrStandley.com

Folks, things are changing and they are going to change lightning-ass-fast, especially if Uranus in Taurus has anything to say about it. Uranus is the planet that is the rebel rouser, the agent of change and the great awakener. Uranus strikes f-a-s-t like lightning and creates a sudden change in circumstances.

It's important that I introduce Uranus in Taurus to you since the North Node will be in Taurus and at one point soon, it will conjunct the North Node in Taurus and oppose the South Node in Scorpio. That conjunction and opposition will begin right around April 2, 2022 and last the rest of the year and into 2023. Uranus will rattle and shake both Nodes.

Uranus turned 'Direct' on January 18, 2022 the exact same day as the Nodes change into Taurus/Scorpio after having been in hibernation over the past five (5) months. That is an important point to mention. Uranus wakes up ready take action quick, meaning lightning-ass-fast. Needless to say, it is important that we remember Uranus is in TAURUS, the same Sun Sign as the North Node this time around and will be present the entire time the North Node is in Taurus since Uranus in Taurus lasts until April 25, 2026.

When you click on the Uranus in Taurus Astro Meme, there is a huge write-up there to tell you all about Uranus in Taurus. Imagine that sleeping giant waking up hungry and ready for some lightning-ass-fast action.

Without reliving the past two (2) years, but still sticking our big toe in just to connect some dots, as the North and South Node in Cancer and Capricorn were dialing down in degrees in the Spring of 2020 preparing to move into Gemini and Sagittarius on May 6, 2020, we could already see that education was going to take a big hit as children and college students were sent home from school and forced to learn through ZOOM.

The North Node Gemini and South Node Sagittarius on DrStandley.com

Gemini rules lower education grades K-12, and Sagittarius rules colleges, universities, technical and trade schools. The closer the Nodes were to moving toward Gemini/Sagittarius, we could feel and see the energy was already getting down to work. In the Spring of 2020, education on all levels was taking a huge hit.

Gemini also rules reporters, reporting, writers, newspapers, articles, local news stations, as Sagittarius rules journalism, journalists, publishing and big media outlets such as the alphabet news global news stations. Gemini is local energy, while Sagittarius is global. They both rule the same thing, just different levels.

Gemini rules transportation, automobiles and motorcyles, while Sagittarius rules transportation on bigger levels such as ships, cargo ships, big trucks and tractor trailers.

It doesn't take a genius to look back at these Gemini and Sagittarius rulerships to see how each played out in the news and in our daily lives from May 6, 2020 until January 18, 2022.

Now the Nodes move into the North Node Taurus and South Node Scorpio on January 18, 2022. Interestingly enough, this transfer of energy from Gemini/Sagittarius to Taurus/Scorpio is accompanied by Uranus in Taurus turning 'Direct' on January 18, 2022 after a five (5) month retrograde sleep.

Even more, Saturn square Uranus has been present since December 9, 2020 and will last until March 10, 2022, which means as a collective, as a global population, we are so ready to move forward (to the future) we can hardly stand it, but we all need more people to agree with us, no matter which side of the fence you sit. We all want something BIG in our collective favor to pop.

Even though Uranus in Taurus has turned 'Direct' it will take him a little while (like 2 months) to get back up to his normal speed. Well son-of-a-biscuit-eater, that will be right around the time that Saturn square Uranus ends on March 10, 2022. Then a couple of weeks later, Uranus will conjunct the North Node in Taurus and oppose the South Node in Scorpio throughout the rest of 2022 and into 2023. It's not like Uranus transits very quickly as it is a generational planet, which takes YEARS to move through a sign. Again, Uranus is transiting Taurus from May 15, 2018 until April 25, 2026.

Sun Square Uranus - Opposition to change on DrStandley.com

Now we get to the North Node in Taurus and South Node in Scorpio. It's important to note the rulerships of each. I will also take a bit from the Daily Horoscope I wrote on January 18, 2022 as I introduced this information to you.

Folks, this is so huge because we are really talking about freedom in all ways since Uranus - the rebel rouser, the great awakener and the agent of change influences these nodes nearly the entire time.

Taurus naturally rules the 2nd house of self-worth, morals and values. It is our personal value system. You can find even more rulerships for Taurus when you click on the 'Sun Sign Landing Page' for Taurus in the teal-colored-drop-down-menu above. Then on that landing page for Taurus there is a teal colored button that says, 'Taurus Rulerships'. The same goes for 'Scorpio Rulerships.'

This is deep, so I need to throw this in here so you get the full picture. The 2nd house is also a sex house. It is naturally ruled by Taurus. It is a personal sex house. Think about this.

The 8th house, which is opposite to the 2nd house, is naturally ruled by Scorpio. The 8th house rules intercourse, sex with another person, the genitalia and desire. The 8th house also rules money with someone else or through other people. It is NOT your personal money. It is money through or with someone else, like a business partner or marriage partner.

The 2nd house, which is opposite the 8th house, is naturally ruled by Taurus. The 2nd house rules sex with yourself. It is the house of masturbation. The 2nd house is personal. The 8th house is with someone else. Got it?

So if the 2nd house is your morals and values, the 8th house is your partner's morals and values.

If the 2nd house is personal and determines your self-worth and value system, then it will dictate your personal income, personal finances and net-worth. Self-worth translates into net-worth. We know this without me even typing it. Right? We know this.

So as your mind goes 'during masturbation', or as your mind goes 'without masturbation', just thinking about sex and without even engaging in it with yourself, or someone else, this has a lot of say so in your own self-worth. This is who you think you are, and what you think you deserve, and the character(s) you will draw to you that will match THAT vision, or view, or energy, of self-worth.

Pluto in Capricorn on DrStandley.com

Now let's ratchet-it-up another level. As a gentle reminder we are in the final two (2) years of Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is the natural modern-day ruler of Scorpio. As stated above, Scorpio rules sex, the genitalia and intercourse and when placed in the sign of Capricorn, it brings volatility and destruction in order to create a full blown transformation in the sign it is in, which is Capricorn in this case. Capricorn rules government, those in a position of authority, etc. Please re-read the Pluto in Capricorn write-up by clicking the Astro Meme.

The North Node in Taurus with a conjunction coming up from Uranus in Taurus, I'm looking forward to the lightning bolt that will shake the system.

We are now hearing that Ghislaine Maxwell is preparing to release some names, FINALLY! She has given-up the fight to keep eight (8) John Doe's secret. Sexual secrets are definitely a Scorpio thing and once this ball starts rolling, I look for it being a bottomless pit of names. Once the eight (8) names are released, why hold on to the other names? And why these eight (8) names? Are they THE MOST important? So if those names are released, what the hell, why not the others?

For the next 1-1/2 years from this writing on January 18, 2022, remember that money and sex are the big topics now. Personal money and self-satisfaction (masturabation) and others people's money including the spouse or business partner and sex with the 'partner' or others.

This is NOT to say that Scorpio will have sex with everyone with two (2) legs because it is actually Scorpio who would rather have no sex at all rather than bad sex. And no other sign can hold out longer without having sex more than a Scorpio. Shocker? Well it shouldn't because Scorpio is very intense, passionate and needs their passion up close and personal where they can taste, smell and look deep into their partner's eyes.

Where the Scorpio debauchery sets in is when the South Node Scorpio is present and impacts your chart in a square, semisquare, quincunx, opposition or a conjunction. When the South Node is harshly aspected to your chart is when and if there will be problems.

Also, Scorpio's who have their Sun within 10 degrees of the South Node degrees will experience 'the drain' or the 'bottomless pit' of energy. It will feel like they are chasing a train at full throttle with their hand extended to grab the rail never really able to latch on, or they will feel like they are pissing in the wind and getting all wet. I know. That's an icky visual, but I mean to give you an icky visual.

Keep in mind that Scorpio also rules stocks (money through other people). Scorpio also rules bail bondsman, who are going to make a ton of money during this time.

Aquarius rules stock exchanges and with Saturn squeezing Aquarius over this next year for the final year of three (3) years, I look for the the stock exchanges to hit the skids and take on water. Monitor your investments closely folks because this is where some lose it all and others make millions. It's more like a turning of the tide or a reversal of fortune.

In other words, the tables are going to flip and the people doing bad things will begin leaking money as if they are a ship taking on water. That will be the Scorpio part of this placement. The Taurus part is the personal part where we will see the reversal of fortune and personal bank accounts increase. I have no idea how this will all go down, but like the rest of you, I will be following the money.

Stocks are also ruled by Taurus, so we have to keep in mind that Uranus in Taurus is going to be conjunct the North Node in Taurus for nearly all of 2022 as April 2022 begins. Again, it will take Uranus a little bit to get back up to normal speed and then the square to Saturn in Aquarius will end on March 10, 2022. Changes are coming and they will be like POP, POP POP, POP, POP! It looks like the 'fall' will be hard and brutal in a lot of ways for a lot of mischievious monsters (people) through August 2022 as Uranus will be 'Direct' striking while the iron is hot. Then Uranus will turn retrograde for a repeat performance.

Scorpio's who are doing great work and minding your business, and taking care of your families, and going to work, and paying your bills, will not have nearly as much to worry about as those who are doing bad things and cheating the system. Those who are cheating everyone in different forms will get caught and will be taken down. A cheater who cheats at one thing, cheats at everything. That's just a fact.

My suggestion for Scorpio is to pretend as though you are walking around with a flimsy paper plate. Do not load more than what that plate can handle. A flimsy paper plate cannot handle a glob of potato salad or anything runny and moist as it will soak through a stain everything it touches. Instead of loading more on your paper plate, lighten up and take a load off.

As with the South Node in your Natal Chart, when the month rolls around that is the sign of your natal South Node, that is when you should take it easy and go on vacation, not add more to your plate. The same goes for this next 1-1/2 years for Scorpio, DO NOT take on more, instead do less. Take it easy.

The North Node in Taurus is where the attention should go for everyone, which is the area of self-worth, which translates into net-worth.

Scorpio rules rubbish, trash, waste, debris, feces, the swamp and the dump. Scorpio rules the sigmoid colon, the rectum and the anus. Scorpio rules elimination, purging, detoxing and disposing. Even Pluto, the modern-day ruler of Scorpio is puring everything in the sign of Capricorn.

You could really put Scorpio to work by clearing out your space once and for all. I mean really raking it out. Those who are in the waste, rubbish, trash, disposal, garbage, used or vintage business will likely experience a boom in business. This may also be a result of natural disasters and the clean-up.

Scorpio has the Midas Touch, so while you may not want to do any hauling, someone will who just might be a North Node Scorpio.

Either way, the focus should be on your self-worth, net-worth, morals, values and value system. Let's say you walk into the gas station to get a snack, what are you going to buy? Are you the slushie and potato chip person, or are you the water and protein bar person?

If you really want to get some mileage out of these nodes, then look at your personal finances, morals and values, and overcome the thing that is devaluing you. This would be that visual that you have during sex alone (masturbation) and it would be the things that you spend money on. All you have to do is look at your receipts and see where the money goes.

If you are going to 'follow the money' with government officials, Jeffrey Epstein and the like, then use the same method with yourself and follow the money. The results will be telling.
