What does It mean to have a planet conjunct, opposite or square the Nodes?

What does it mean to have a planet conjunct, opposing or square to the Nodes of the Moon? If a planet is conjunct the South Node that planet describes something of what the person was like earlier in this life and in a past life. It blends it's nature with the South Node sign.Remember that the South Node speaks of our reincarnation past as well as our default patterns in this life, and the North Node speaks to the direct our Soul longs to go towards in this life. We can discern our life lessons by understanding the Nodes. (Read: "North Node Astrology; Re-discovering Your Life Direction and Soul Purpose" on amazon.) If a planet is opposite the South Node or conjunct the North Node that planet describes what the person was up against in a former life, and earlier in this one, and may represent something that was blocked or repressed in the past, and thus the higher octave of the planet is longed for in this life. For example, if that planet was Uranus, freedom may have been an issue in the past and is something still longed for. If a planet is square to the Nodes, it is called a skipped step, which means the qualities of that planet must be faced again in this life and resolved in order for evolutionary progress to continue. It's an issue left unresolved from the past, which needs attention in this life. For example, if Mars in Aries is square the Nodes then the person might need to harness their courage and ability to act effectively and assertively in this life. They might have been blocked in a former life by a person who acted like "Mars in Aries." Elizabeth Spring. www.elizabethspring.com

What if the Nodes are reversed?

In trying to understand my North Node, what if the nodes and houses are reversed? As in a Pisces North Node in the 6th house? You need to find the integration of those opposing functions and blend their energies. For example in this case with a North Node Pisces (Pisces normally ruling the 12th house but now in the 6th house) you'd want to emphasize Piscean qualities in the arena of 6th house activities--so you'd want to bring the heartfelt, imaginative and intuitive qualities of Pisces into your daily work life (6th house). With the Nodal reversal it's always the challenge of integrating what the sign and house mean, even if it feels awkward at first. With a South Node in Virgo in the 12th you might realize that your default pattern and your reincarnation story has to do with not being able to make order and sense out of your deep psyche--the unconscious. In this case, paying attention to dreams, synchronicities and having psychoanalysis might be the wise thing to do. The Pisces/Virgo axis is also about blending the energies of the heart with the head. The North Node is the evolutionary cutting edge of the Soul, so always look to it by sign and house to be your guiding North Star even if it feels unfamiliar. Elizabeth. www.elizabethspring.com
