are these precious rare moments in life, where we realize all of a
sudden that something which was known before changes into the
quality of "knowing for real". I guess this is what is
called "Realization". There is a difference between
“knowing” and “Knowing”. We might “know” something is a
fact, without ever really “Knowing” it. We might know from
observation, in our heads, and mentally, that such and such a thing
is true. In astrology this goes for so many factors of delineation,
for instance when understanding the modus operandi of the planets.
And then there comes a day, when realization occurs, in all
the pores of our body, and we get this feeling of Knowing without
with the mind, is not really knowing for sure, but Knowing from
Realization, is knowing for sure. It has such a different quality
from “just knowing” ; we probably all have had experiences like
fact, whenever I think of the Hindu philosophy where Self
Realization equals the realization of a Self beyond the physical
senses, I keep thinking, yes, but can any such Realization occur
without the body experiencing it?
Ultimately, we may need the body to transcend the body. All
real knowledge in life (and about life) seems to come from
experience. Experiences are physical. Without actually having
physically lived through any planetary transit, we might never
understand a specific transit for real.
of us in astrology have learned that the South Node equals modes of
being from the past, and the North Node the opposite: i.e. it
indicates modes of behaviour and experiences to develop in this
lifetime at one point or another. I am using this theory because it
makes sense and it works in my counseling practice.
very long ago, I realized I had reached my destination in life. In
fact, this is a pretty awesome realization, because how often
don’t we wonder about what our destiny is, what our dharma really
is in life? We travel
wide and far and are often sidetracked, and some of us might never
get to this sense of one’s real destiny. I’ve been an astrologer
for most of my life. Astrology was the lever for my spiritual path
and for a long time I pursued the spiritual path with more fervor
than astrology itself, so it seemed. Then things went wrong, utterly
wrong in my life, and I could not figure out why. The fact is, I
still can’t today. I can only think of one thing: after all of my
pursuits went wrong, with me nearly broke, on the physical,
emotional and spiritual level, I started afresh on the astrological
path, and lo and behold, things seemed to work out all of a sudden,
after ten years of going haywire in all kinds of directions. I
realized all of a sudden, that maybe that was it, maybe this
lifetime for me wasn’t meant to pursue the spiritual path only,
maybe I had to get back on the path of astrology, become independent
and live of it wholesale. And guess what: my North Node is in
Aquarius in the 2nd house.
whole change in destiny started with a heavy transit of Uranus
conjunct my Sun, the South Node ruler and intensified with transits
of Uranus on the North Node.
then I thought to myself: what if all people live in the South Node
for the first half of their lives, and have to go through a transit
or progression (or maybe a series of them), of the North Node Ruler
or North Node itself, to actually get on the path of their destiny?
What if most people don’t get to the North Node, to their destiny,
before they are 35, 42, or 45? And so I decided to check this.
I decided to make quick profiles for the Nodes in all the 12 houses
and check charts in the Pathfinder database. Thus 144
interpretations of North Node positions were developed.
major part of this was written at the end of the last century.
Before I will loose it forever as these are just sitting doing
nothing in my computer, I will now and again make these
interpretations available on the web, as and when time permits. This
is just the introduction, I will announce when the first chapter of
the NN in Aries in all the 12 houses is published in a weekahead. PS:
I am slow. I have the Moon itself in Taurus:-)
