FALL PREVIEW: NODES ON THE EDGE
The nodes are going to get weird as we move into September. In the True Node system, they are at 1 degree to 29 degrees Sept 15-Dec. 13th. They will be moving through the Aries/Pisces Gandanta area Pisces 27-Aries 3. The last time we had the nodes in that Gandanta was Feb./March of 2005.
During that period, three major events in the world should be impacted by the Rahu return. In March 2005, China ratified an anti-secession law, aimed at preventing Taiwan from declaring independence. On Feb. 10, 2005, North Korea announces that it possesses nuclear weapons as a protection against the hostility it says it perceives from the United States. Will the Chinese/Taiwan conflict come to a head.? North Korea keeps getting closer to China and Russia as they unite against the West. Let’s hope that it does not get too tense. Any of these events could upset the global markets.
When the nodes are on the edge, they can peer into an alternate universe. Psychology gets eerie and weird and distorted. Rahu when afflicted by being sandhi or on the edge can be more anxious or paranoid, feels constrained by forces beyond his control, victimized by overpowering forces, may have more nightmares or difficult dreams, or be a bit manic-depressive. If you have your Sun or Moon 29-1 degree of the water signs/air sign juncture in your natal chart or if you are Aquarius rising which is co-ruled by Rahu or if you are in a Rahu period or a Dasha period where Rahu is the nakshatra lord. It could also lead to emptiness leading toward addictive patterns, frustration, sorrow, dejection, psychological intensity, and mental anguish.
Ketu on the edge 1.30 degree Scorpio to 28.30 can have a strong desire to change directions in life, wants to give up material attachment, feels disillusioned, has difficult emotional knots to unravel, feels unsettled and his emotional distortions may tend toward self-isolation. may feel stuck in the past with regrets. This one may start to be felt by Sept. 1st and last into late December.
So as weird as the political landscape is looking lately, expect weird psychological distortions and mind games to manifest this fall. Stay on top of your meditation and yoga and exercise to stay balanced and happy.
