Your Karmic Path: The Nodes in astrology + how to use the Tarot to move forward

 

We’ve all been at this place in life where we’re asking ourselves what the hell it is we’re doing.

Are we moving in the right direction?

Or are we barking up the wrong tree???

 

I’m offering a workshop for a small group of people where we’ll talk about the Nodal Axis in our birth chart and we’ll use the Tarot to find out the best way forward, what’s needed RIGHT NOW.

 

Let me explain.

 

The Nodal Axis denotes the karmic “lesson plan” for our current incarnation.

 

The South Node shows the energy we are familiar with, where we’re coming from, what’s comfortable.

It’s also what we are asked to move AWAY from and head towards the unfamiliar territory of the North Node.

The North Node describes what’s brand new, what we’re supposed to learn in this lifetime, what we’re more than likely struggling with. Yup, call that growing pains…

 

The Nodal axis consists of two polar opposites, making the following archetypal pairs:

 

Aries + Libra – The Warrior and the Diplomat
Taurus + Scorpio – The Builder and the Phoenix (Re-builder)
Gemini + Sagittarius – The Teacher and the Philosopher
Cancer + Capricorn – The Nurturer and the Authoritarian (Mother/Father axis)
Leo + Aquarius – The King and the Revolutionary
Virgo + Pisces – The Analyst and the Dreamer

 

Can you see how these energies have a hard time “seeing” each other, accepting the value in the other’s perspective?

We can fine-tune our placement and add the house they’re living in to the equation:

Is it Home vs. Career?

Self vs. Other?

Money and worldly achievements vs. surrender and transformation?

And does another planet square that axis, bring in yet another player?

 

Let’s use Prince William to show what I’m talking about.

His South Node (what he needs to let go off) is in Capricorn in the first house.

He’s familiar and comfortable with the whole “stiff upper lip” facade the family is presenting. With Sun and Moon in Cancer, this acts as a protective shield for him, keeps him from having to show the “soft underbelly”, totally works for him.

Not so fast, though…

His North Node (what he needs to learn/assimilate) is in Cancer, so opening up and showing his sensitive side is definitely part of his curriculum. Because Cancers are so easily hurt, opening up for communication and forgiveness is a tough one for him though…

Add to that the fact that his Saturn, the archetypal Task Master is in Libra and squaring (challenging) both nodes from the 9th house.

So his path is not a straight shot from A to B (Capricorn to Cancer) but requires a balancing/assimilating of both these energies.

 

Well.

If William were in my workshop (hahaha!), we’d pull Tarot cards asking questions like

“Where am I in my development towards North Node energies/”

“How can my ease and familiarity with my South Node energy help me on this path?”

“What does Saturn need to be balancing these opposing energies successfully?”

 

Wanna join me and fictional William to find out what your set up looks like?

P.S. If you would rather have a 1:1 conversation with me about this, go here.

The Warrior, the Healer or the Diplomat — who are you?

 

Astrologically speaking, the moment of your birth determines the cast of characters that will be playing out the “movie” that’s your life.

For example, we all have a “Communicator“, but whether they are curious and eager to learn OR are more at home with the language of dreams and feelings depends on which element, sign and house the planet Mercury is located in your birth chart.

That’s helpful to know if for example you have a spouse whose Communicator is FIRE and yours is WATER … may make for some steamy (pun intended) conversations, either of the passionate or the angry variety.

 

Here’s a brief overview of my team, so you can see what I’m talking about:

The Hero/Heroine of my play is a Strategist.

She lives in the 11th House of Community/the Collective and what’s important to her are healthy tribal bonds, connection and support.

My Nurturer is a Rebel

and rather detached, which doesn’t go so well with “nurturing”, so we had to learn to suss out what ‘support’ actually means. She lives in the 12th House, so lots of alone time is part of it.

My Communicator

is pretty good at presenting themselves as the Authority but I have to watch it to not tip over into a Know-It-All.

I guess I might be compensating for the fact that

my Warrior is a Diplomat?

though, Warrior and Diplomat – how does that even go together?! Ugh…

 

Curious what your team looks like?

Then join me for a 4-part class that will examine planets in your birth chart through an archetypal lens and use the Tarot to get insights into what our team needs to function at their highest potential.

Learn my “Up-Down-Do” Tarot spread so you can answer your own questions

Meet me Tuesday 1/24 at 8 am PST for a 30-minute session Zoom!

This offer is free to the people on my list, but you need to register here.

When we have a question/choice/dilemma to deal with, we don’t really need to do a 10-card spread to sort out what’s what.

Because more often than not, we already (deep down) know the answer. The images of the Tarot are the “signposts” that help us excavate and clarify that gut instinct.

Over the years decades of using the cards I’ve learned to ask the most specific question possible to get a precise, actionable answer. That means literally pulling cards for my clients for “do this” and “don’t do this”.

Here is an easy to remember 3-card spread to practice getting decisive answers from your deck.

SAMPLE QUESTIONS (amend to ask your own):

“What do I need to do to ace the job interview next week?”

“How do I repair my relationship with my brother?”

“What do I need to do to deal with my procrastination issues?

“Who do I need to be find a romantic partner?” (the second card may be a surprise!)

Join me!

 


Meet me online on Saturday, January 21, 2023 at 3 pm PST  to pull some cards for the Lunar New Year.

Topics: What do I most need to focus on in this new cycle?  How can I make it (whatever “it” is) happen? What is my next right action to move forward? 

This offer is free to the people on my list, but you have to register here (Not on the list yet? Scroll down and subscribe).

You’ll also need to bring a Tarot or Oracle deck to the session, so you can pull cards for yourself.

 

 


 

I’m offering one more  TAROT HANGOUT with me this Sunday, January 1, 2023 at 10 am PST.

If you’ll join us, we’ll pull some cards together so you can go deeper into what your original archetype card means for you. We’ll ask questions like

“what supports me in pursuing X” or

“what is the first thing I need to do to move towards X” or

what gets in the way of X?”

For Sunday you’ll need a Tarot or Oracle deck, pen & paper and about an hour of your time.

This offer is free to the people on my list, but you have to register here

 


In astrology the planet Saturn rules structure, rules and systems in our lives. Think taxes, 40-hour work weeks and your mom insisting that you’re home for dinner by 6 pm.

​Saturn also rules our skeletal structure, our bones, especially our knees (how easily can you bend?). Structure is what enables us to move forward in life. Structure can support or… suffocate.

What is the state of structure in your life?

Join me on Monday, December 26, 2022 at 10 am for an exploration. We’ll talk about Saturn in general terms and then use the Tarot to ask some very specific questions.

This offer is free to the people on my list, but you have to register here You’ll also need to bring a Tarot or Oracle deck to the session, so you can pull cards for yourself.

 


Join me tomorrow December 24, Christmas Eve at 10 am PST for a hangout on Zoom.

We’ll pull cards to answer these questions:

“What is the sacred invitation of this moment?”

“What is underneath that invitation?”

“What am I learning about right now?

IMPORTANT: If you have your own Tarot or Oracle deck, bring it (you won’t be put on the spot) and please be prepared to have your camera on (because… connection!).
