Planets square the Lunar Nodes



Wrong way

What are the Lunar Nodes?


The Lunar Nodes in the natal chart show a great deal of information, which in a nutshell can be resumed as:

  • What you already know how to do and can use as fuel (South Node)

  • What you're learning to do (North Node)

  • The area where you have the most room to grow (The house of the North Node)

Get your free natal chart to see where the Lunar Nodes fall in your birth chart.

When a planet is square the Lunar Nodes, it necessarily creates a T-square, which creates a bridge between the past (South Node) and the future (North Node), and can be seen as our present.

A square represents a conflictual energy, a challenge and a tension, but of course it also represents enhanced opportunity to achieve growth, as nothing ever happens through a quiet walk in the park.




My understanding of a planet square the Nodes is that, the lessons served in this life will be represented by the planet T-square. The planet represents both a difficulty and a leverage. Through the planet square the Nodes, we find information about:

  • What kind of people and situations will help you achieve the most growth

  • The kind of people you have Karma with

  • What needs to be transformed and worked on to achieve growth

  • What pushes you towards growth and holds you back from it by a constant movement of balance.

Can you please share about Chiron square the nodes?

I have natal Chrion in Aries at 16 degrees in the 8th house which is squaring my nodes ~ south node in 11th house which is also conjunct my moon and mars, all in Cancer then north node in 5th house in Capricorn. (All this is also currently being transited by Pluto and Saturn just to add more fun to the gathering! :-) Would love some wisdom on how Chiron affects this nodal journey I'm on...? Many Thanks!!
