Planets square the Lunar Nodes

Updated: May 15



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)

When a planet is square the 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.
