North Node Cancer and South Nodes Capricorn

On Tuesday, November 6, 2018 the North and South Node make their move into Cancer and Capricorn until May 5, 2020. The North Node represents where our 'cup runneth over' and the South Node represens the 'bottomless pit', meaning no matter how much energy you pour into the South Node, you are wasting your time because you cannot fill it up.

It is fascinating that this nodal transit arrives on mid-term election day here in the U.S. Since Capricorn and Saturn rule the Democrat Party, take note that Pluto, Saturn and the South Node are all in Capricorn thereby putting a severe squeeze and limitation on the Democrat Party. Read on and you will see what I mean.

The North and South Node ALWAYS move Retrograde and are ALWAYS in opposite signs so that means Cancer and Capricorn are opposite signs. Before we roll out any further with this write-up, let's get a sharper look at what the word opposite really means. When something is opposite of another it is still the same, but of a different type. Whether it is gender, temperature, monetary, etc., there is something equal to it, yet opposite of it.

For instance there is male and female, they are equally human and opposite in gender. There is hot and cold, they are equally about temperature and opposite in their degree of temperature. Whatever the subject matter is, there is an equal and opposite counterpart. And so it goes with the Sun Signs and so it goes with the Nodes. If you look at the symbol for the Nodes to your left, you will see that the North Node is open at the bottom of the horseshoe and the South Node is open at the top of the horseshoe. They are equal, yet opposite. As are the signs of this nodal connection. The North Node in Cancer and South Node in Capricorn are opposite sun signs.

If you have been coming to my website long enough, then you know that I put a very heavy emphasis on the North and South Nodes in our natal chart. These are extremely sensitive points in the chart that when tapped by us, meaning when we use them as direction or turn signals, they can serve us very well and cut our challenging issues to a minimum. The Nodes are major areas of influence for success to take shape in our Life. The North Node is our dharma (future) and the South Node is our past (karma).

The North Node is where your cup runneth over and the South Node is the bottomless pit or drain. When you put energy into the North Node, you simply cannot fail. If you put your energy in the South Node it will become a drain and you can't possibly fill up a bottomless pit. It's impossible because it is bottomless! The South Node is the 'hole in the chart'. No matter how much time, energy, money, Love or attention you give the South Node, you will not win. But alas, that is what we do as humans. We see or feel that South Node and for some reason, we believe that we can conquer it. We weren't meant to conquer it. The North Node is our destiny (destination) and if we move in the direction of the North Node, we simply cannot fail. North Node Cancer on DrStandley.com

The North Node in Cancer brings us back to 'what we say' really matters to us and that is inside our home, which is our family. The focus is back on the family, the roots, ancestry, where we came from and who is our blood. Cancer is the sign of the nurturer, whereas Capricorn is the sign of the authoritarian.

The sign of Cancer rules the home, family, domestic life, our childhood, the childhood home, our biological and psychological foundation (where we grew up), ancient dwellings, domestic engineers, gardners, homesteads, homemaking, hotels, housekeepers, land, land owners, landscapers, farmers, farming, produce, mines, mining, miners, motels, nursing homes, long-term residential care facilities, residence(s), renters, real estate, real estate agents, rooms, the north and north corner of a room, rooming, roommates, underground places, tunnels, underground passages and places where treasure or sacred things are buried.

Domestic security is also ruled by Cancer, which includes defending the home and the homeland (one's country). This would not only involve security such as a home security system, but national security in defending the homeland. This could also easily turn into 'martial law' when the homeland takes drastic measures to protect itself, from itself. This could look like an individual sitting on their front porch with a shotgun defending their property or martial law protecting its city.

Keep in mind that the sign of Cancer also rules - the mother, the breasts, armpits, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, reproductive system, uterus and wombs. Cancer and Capricorn both rule hypochondria (there's always something wrong).

The South Node in Capricorn causes us to seek outside of our own space (home) what we say matters, thereby taking us into our work, profession or career. This the typical 'Dorothy Syndrome' as she sought her happiness outside of own backyard. Capricorn is the sign of the authoritarian, whereas Cancer is the sign of the nurturer. South Node Capricorn on DrStandley.com

The sign of Capricorn rules the career, profession, public recognition, rank in society, status in the community, what the public thinks of you, celebrities, CEO's, ambitions, those in a position of authority or influence, politicians, the government, bosses, managers, executives, public administration, land owners, mining engineers, excavators, industrial engineers, the south and south corner of a room, town halls, vacant property, vaults, vaulted passages, underground places where objects and materials are kept, urns, The Vatican, churches, priests, Father Time, night watchmen and security guards.

Security at work or securing one's profession, or maintaining control through a need to 'take charge' like a military general or sargeant. There is a tendency for Capricorn to care more about what people on the outside of their home and family think of them, more than they care about what the home and family members think of them. This can easily be seen in celebrities and the links at which they will go for attention, accolades, applause, reward, recognition, rank and status. Capricorn gains their security from outside of the home. Instead of home and family being the most important, work becomes the most important. We may hear or say, "Can't you see that I'm working all of these hours for the family" while the family falls apart due to lack of Love and attention. Capricorn is the sign of the authoritarian or the controller. Capricorn takes charge like a military general and starts barking out marching orders. That may work 'at work' but it will not work 'at home'.

Keep in mind that the sign of Capricorn also rules - the father, the skin, teeth, bones, bruises, joints, hair, knees, elbows, skin issues, the spleen, the skeleton. Capricorn and Cancer both rule hypochondria (there's always something wrong).

  • Take a look at the graphic to your right. You can see the dates when the Pluto, Saturn, the Sun and Mercury will conjunct the South Node and wreak some havoc. The Moon in Capricorn will occur every month for 2 to 2-1/2 days, but I want you to notice the bigger energies present so you can watch the news for breaking stories. You also might want to read my latest article under the 'Garbage Astrology' section of this website called - 'Damage Control' featuring lots of information on the South Node in Capricorn interaction.

  • As I roll through some examples below, keep in mind what you are seeing in the news, and prayerfully you are getting your news from multiple sources and not just one news source that can't stand the President. You are not going to get 'real news' from sources like that. That would be like trying to get a recommendation or reference for a job from someone who can't stand you. At least turn to CSPAN every now and then so you aren't influenced by the emotional and crazy media. Keep in mind, this North Node is in the 'emotional sign' of Cancer. While Cancer has feelings, Capricorn kinda doesn't. While Cancer says, "Let me give you a hug." Capricorn says, "There's no crying here!" While Cancer is warm and cuddly. Capricorn is icy and will give you frostbite. Cancer wants the house warm and Capricorn wants the house cold.

  • This Nodal transit is super-interesting considering what we here in the U.S., are seeing as we roll into this nodal transit. The U.S. is being forced to defend or protect our 'Homeland' as we see thousands upon thousands of immigrants marching toward our border in what is looking like a push or a demand to let them in without a proper vetting process.

  • As we get closer to this new nodal transit, we are seeing many politicians dropping likes flies, meaning they had decided not to run again during this mid-term (for whatever reason) and are therefore voluntarily leaving. I think we will be seeing 'very soon' what those reasons before too long.

  • We have been seeing a lot of CEOs and celebrities, literally caught with their pants down, as they have been forced to resign. This is not only due to the Pluto in Capricorn, but Saturn in Capricorn as well. Now that the South Node in Capricorn is here, I do believe we will see a mass exodus of more well-known names drop out of the public eye as Pluto and Saturn pull them down even further. This will be men and women alike. There will be mothers (Cancer) and fathers (Capricorn) who will have embarrassed their family beyond comprehension.

  • Remember the last transit for the Nodes was the North Node in Leo and the South Node in Aquarius. During this time we saw a lot of heads roll, but I believe that was still Pluto in Capricorn coupled with Saturn in Capricorn. What I believe the Leo/Aquarius Nodal transit did was shine light on child pornography and trafficking. More sting operations took place under this nodal transit from May 9, 2017 until November 6, 2018. Go ahead and Google 'sex trafficking sting children' and you will see what comes up. Leo is the ruler of the children and Aquarius rules children's organizations. While they were caught during the Leo/Aquarius nodal transit, they will now get convicted under the Cancer/Capricorn nodal transit, along with Jupiter in Sagittarius (trials and tribunals).

  • While you are Googling, go ahead and Google -- CEO's and celebrities who have resigned in 2018. Even 2017 because a lot of these resignations are still due to Pluto in Capricorn and then coupled with Saturn in Capricorn. Now that the Cancer/Capricorn nodal transit is here, we will see even more of these resignations and we will see the trials due to Jupiter in Sagittarius.

  • What I also find intereseting is the connection between Cancer and Capricorn with underground tunnels, vaults, vaulted passages, underground places where objects and materials are kept, underground places, underground passages and places where treasure or sacred things are buried. The Vatican is ruled by Capricorn, and all churches are ruled by Capricorn. I always said that it is probably the Catholic Church that has all of the oldest records, documents and books on Astrology. I'll bet they know more Astrology than me! And I'll bet all of these are in those vaults below Vatican City. Even if it isn't Astrology being uncovered, I believe because of this Cancer/Capricorn nodal transit, there will be something uncovered that will rock the church. Keep in mind that St. Peter is also ruled by Capricorn. Peter means rock and Capricorn rules rocks and St. Peter (St. Peters Basilica, St. Peters Square).

  • If you are a Cancer, then make certain you utilize the conjunction to your Sun in Cancer. A conjunction is when two (2) or more planets or heavenly bodies are snuggled up to each other in the same sign and degree. When this occurs it intensifies the energy of the two involved. Since the North Node means 'your cup runneth over' then play UP the energies of being a Cancer, which is the sign of the nurse, the caretaker, the nurturer, the family, the home, the domestic unit, etc. All of the things I mentioned above.

  • If you are a Capricorn, then make certain you are well aware of when ANY planet enters Capricorn, including your Sun in Capricorn, it will conjunct this South Node and intensify the energy of it. This will be a drain on your system and you will not get a free pass to do wrong, mess up, get a ticket, eat bad, get drunk, none of that. When the South Node hits your Sun Sign, it will be a very difficult month. It will be a difficult and challenging time for Capricorn's the entire time the South Node in Capricorn is present, but it will be harder during the Sun in Capricorn from December 22, 2018 until January 20, 2019. It doesn't help that Pluto in Capricorn will be in the South Node until the year 2024 and Saturn will be in Capricorn until March 17, 2020. So all Capricorn's will really need to hold it together, be disciplined, responsible and mature because the South Node will not give you a free pass at all. You will also need to take better care of your health because this nodal transit will give you a workout just to show you how much more in shape you need to get. Also, focus on the North Node in Cancer and this will help you out.

  • For those of you who live with a North Node Capricorn and a South Node Cancer, then this energy will basically balance out or cancel itself out. You may not notice anything different at all because of the balance. Lucky you! But you will notice it in the rest of us as we flail around and figure out what the hell is going on in our lives.

  • Those of you who live with a North Node Cancer and a South Node Capricorn, then this is energy that is not new to you, but it is something you will definitely feel. It may be more of the same, but at least you are familiar with this energy. You already know that you should be focused on the North Node Cancer. Maybe this nodal transit will be what it takes to make you change.

  • For the rest of us, wherever Capricorn rules in our natal chart is where we need to pay attention to the South Node in Capricorn, at the same time focus on the North Node in Cancer. Become very aware of what house this impacts and straighten yourself UP!

    North and South Node e-Book

    I wrote an eBook on the Nodes. There are 12 chapters in this e-Book that include Nodal meanings, Nodal basics, Nodal positions and also chapters on what happens when a certain planet interacts with your North or South Node. I have also included a calendar of dates so you can see where the North and South Node were on a certain date.

    The e-Book is only $9.99 and personally emailed to you by me as I do not do automated downloads because I find that type of service very impersonal.
    What can I say, I am a North Node Virgo and appreciate personal service, even in cyberspace.

    I do not use automated downloads. I send this to you myself from my AOL e-mail address. Please watch for it and if you do not see it within a half hour, check your junk or spam folder. My phone number is at the top of each page of this website.
