NORTH NODE IN ARIES
December 1911 - May 1913; July 1930 - December 1931 ; January
1949 -July 1950 ; August 1967-April 1969;
May 1986 - November 1987, January 2005-June 2006).
of these periods, 1967-1969, saw a pretty impacting war in the
Western world (the Vietnam war) but
also the gestation of the notion of “Make Love not
War". With North
Node in Aries, the South Node is in Libra, and with such a signature
we would be peaceloving, and not particularly interested in an
Aries-Destiny of "making war". In fact, none of the years
mentioned above were years which stick in our minds as “war years”,
with the exception of Vietnam. However, was this Destiny? Vietnam?
Given that the NORTH Node was in Aries? Now, of course, it’s
pretty hard to to believe that “war” could ever be Destiny, but
being a Warrior, a Spiritual Warrior even, could most definitely be.
Psychologically, people with South Node in Libra tend to be those
who opt for cooperation, they have a hard time making choices, have
a hard time fending for themselves. Maybe that is the Destiny of
North Node in Aries, to start
making choices in this given lifetime, for a change. It can be
very exhausting to never make any choices, and the Soul may have
decided that with North Node in Aries, it is high time to choose, to
choose to be on the right side, to choose for something one believes
in. Most of the individuals in the examples used below tend to
be pretty freethinking individuals who impacted the world in a truly
pioneering fashion. The South Node in Libra gave them all the
talents for diplomacy, and some of them did go to war ultimately
with North Node in Aries, in many different ways.
is the ruler of the North Node in Aries, and it would seem that with
each significant progression of Mars, Destiny calls. Since Mars
transits the entire zodiac in a relatively short period of time,
Mars aspects by progression may make a greater impact to do with one’s
Destiny. Each transit or progression to Venus is a transit or
progression to the ruler of the South Node. It means patterns of the
past come to the foreground in such times, either to become
conscious of them or to change them.
the short delineations below Mars and Venus as rulers of the North -
and South Node have not been taken into account. They ought to be
however when you look at individual charts.
NN in Aries in the 1st house:
would indicate that one’s destiny might really be about becoming
INDEPENDENT. I’ve often seen people with this signature telling me
that they would so much like a relationship (South Node in Libra in
the 7th house), but apparently it seldom works out. It is as if
these people can’t live without a relationship (in fact, most of
us think we can’t, to be frank). But the Destiny of the North Node
in Aries in the first house might mean choosing for oneself,
choosing for independence, and to learn to simple "Be".
North Node in Aries in the 2nd house
would of course mean a destiny of becoming self sufficient, of
independently making a living, not tying it in with a partner. It is
all about not being
dependent on the resources of the partner, but making choices geared
towards one's one’s own resources. And maybe one should become
more adventurous and courageous vis-a-vis one’s own resources with
this North Node placement.
North Node in Aries in the 3rd house
would seem to indicate a soul that is too polite to ever say what he/she
really thinks personally. Learning to speak up, to give one’s own
independent ideas, and no longer hiding this in clouds of politeness
could all be issues of growth.
Learning to have the guts, the courage to speak up for
oneself. In sum, moving toward a destiny of learning to become an independent
North Node in Aries in the 4th house:
one’s own world rather than fitting in in the outside world. Live
your whole life independently, start afresh, pioneer your existence
in some way, that would seem to be the Aries North Node in the 4th
North Node in Aries in the 5th house:
Fire Destiny in a Fiery Situation: To be truly and independently
creative, the pioneering way, would seem to be the destiny of this
soul who on the other hand may just be too interested in improving
the world, or do things together with friends, rather than starting
things from one's own creativity. Yet this would be his or her
North Node in Aries in the 6th house
active on a daily basis, rather than dreaming about all kinds of
things, as well as physically exercising,
might be part and parcel of this Soul's path in this lifetime.
Node in Aries in the 7th house
Ideal path would be to become a person who is able to be him- or herself at
all times within the situation of relationship. It is a matter of
not competing neither quarreling with someone else, nor finding it
necessary to assert him/herself all the time in relationship, but
just being independent IN a relationship.
Node in Aries in the 8th house
truly courageous and daring to take a different stand in
relationship, moreover, having the guts to assert oneself in
relationship would seem to be the path to follow. More often than not,
these type of individuals seem to make the other person mad,
hesitating and wavering so much that the other person makes
all the decisions, or even starts to become angry. Owning this
behaviour and learning to be self-assertive without anger in a
relationshp, and daring to even be in a relationship, are important
things to develop.
Node in Aries in the 9th house
with North Node in Aries in the3rd house, it is important for such a
Soul to speak one's own mind. The 9th house however points to
beliefsystems as well, and having personal opinions about them, is
just fine, in fact, it is something to learn to develop in this
lifetime. Also, maybe roam around the world and be an adventurer,
discovering new worlds continuously, and not be afraid to do so.
(Refine by looking at Mars as ruler of the NN)
Node in Aries in the 10th house.
a pioneer in your profession. Make an independent mark on the world,
stimulate other people in an outside career. Never mind beautifying
the home or wanting to stay at home in a nice relationship. Get out
there, and by yourself! (Look for what Mars is doing in your chart
to be more specific).
Node in Aries in the 11th house
assertive within a group, pioneering with groups, leading a group,
and being independent from the collective and yet be in the
collective are keywords to do with one’s path here.
It is likely that you prefer to keep good manners, enjoy the more
artistic life, and do your own thing, but the idea is to really go
for something to do with the larger whole, and to take action with
Node in Aries in the 12th house
independent and free from all kinds of religious or spiritual
teachings, awake in one’s own spirituality, and not afraid to be
alone with God, as it were, would seem to be one’s path here.

GORBACHOV: March 2 1931, 7:52 am DT Zone -3 -3 - (1), Privolnoye,
Stavorpol, USSR, 45N18, 42E40
North Node in Aries in 1 conjunct Uranus, fighting independently for
a revolution, a perestroika, a restructuring, fighting oneself free
out of the system, Mikhael Gorbachov sure seems to have lived up to
his Destiny! He even ended up alone, first deserted by the support of his
people, next because Raisa died at a relatively young age (1999).
North Node ruler and South Node ruler are opposed. Gorbatsjov is
likely to meet the shadows of the past continuously in this lifetime.
His South Node in Libra is conjunct Venus in the 10th house, Being
ultimately rejected by the greater majority of his people, was a
karmic act, a consequence of past behavioral patterns, which simply
needed to be broken for the future to manifest.
The interesting thing is, that Gorbatsjov did even free his
whole country of past patterning towards more independence and
individuality! So this
man definitely lived up to his Destiny, unlike the next example, a
woman who lived in a time, where women lived out their destinies
more often through their partners than is the case today. However,
freeing herself from the thoughtworld of her partner really was her
destiny, but she did not live long enough to get that far:

Braun, mistress of Adolf Hitler, certainly failed to reach her
destiny as with the North Node in Aries in the 3rd house, which may
be due to the fact that she did not live long enough to accomplish
that, since the North Node usually is not reached until 35 years of
age. In essence it was
important for her to learn to be free in thought, to express her own
ideas. The ruler of the North Node in the 5th house in Gemini only
adds to this picture. But what is Eva Braun known for? Not for her
independent thinking, but for her being the mistress (Pisces) of
another person, Hitler. She
took over his views on politics (Libra South Node in the 9th), and
was known for being a mistress: Venus, South Node ruler, conjunct

of Mao Tse Tung we will think of revolution, maybe. But Mao Tse Tung
became very famous for his “Red Book”, which is such an
incredible expression of the North Node in Aries (red) in the 3rd
house (books, and little ones, it being the 3rd house:-) ! The
ruler of this North Node is Mars in Scorpio in the 10th, so his
thoughts instigated others to follow his beliefs and fight for them, and did
publicly known. One
could maybe even say that the “Red Book” really was a part of

it have been that it was Nixon’s destiny to lead his people in the
Vietnam War? Watergate seems more a matter of the South Node, as his
SN ruler is in Pisces in the 6th house - Nixon wavered too much, and
used deceitful methods obviously. He did not meet up with his
destiny with Watergate, unless one considers the fact that he was
ultimately alone, with NN in the 7th house in Aries. However, he did
have Pat Nixon on his side (usually). NN in Aries with its ruler
opposite Pluto definitely feels like the involvement in the Viet Nam
war was part of his destiny though, Mars in the 4th: political
fervor, and Pluto in the 10th house: a powerplay. He may have lost
his own battle , but he certainly did not make a lot of friends in
his career, which is one way of looking at NN in Aries in the 7th
house! The ultimate
way would be different I expect, an individual free to be himself in
in Aries in the 7th
WINSTON CHURCHILL, November 30 1874, 1:30 am LMT, Woodstock,
Oxfordshire, 51N52 1W21, NN 25.51 Aries in the 7th conjunct Neptune,
Mars in Libra 16.32 in the 1st.
political leader with NN in Aries is Sir Winston Churchill, and he
did deal with the issue of war and peace, the issue of Aries and
Libra, wholesale. His North node ruler is in the same sign as his
South Node: Libra, so his destiny was not completely Aries-like,
it led to Libra, the continuous peacemaker, he was the ultimate
diplomat, after all, as his South Node was in Libra even conjunct
Jupiter. Stimulating other persons (NN in Aries) and catching their
imagination (conjunct Neptune, asking for sacrifice?) was part of his destiny.
in Aries in the 9th:
LUTHER, November 19 1483, 22:46 pm LMT, Eisleben, Germany, 51N31,
11E32, NN 28.42 Aries in the 9th, Mars (widely conjunct Saturn) in
Scorpio in the 3rd.
individual who definitely made his mark true to the North Node, was
Reformer of religion Martin Luther. His North Node is in the 9th
house, the house of religion: his independent new views did not
bring him only friends, but also a lot of opposition : the North
Node ruler in Scorpio in the 3rd house widely conjunct Saturn.
A battle in thought, opinion and debate, but Martin Luther
definitely met up with his Destiny alright, he lived it.
is the second example we see from makers of history with the North
Node in Aries, who were specifically known for “Reform”. Aries
is “Something new” indeed, some pioneering way, maybe we should
add the word Reform(ation), to the North Node in Aries? Luther with
the Reformation, Gorbatsjov with the Perestroika.

would one expect of the destiny of a NN in Aries in the 10th
individual: that he would create his own world? In fact, it seems
that he did meet up with his destiny, for so he did. It did not go
of itself, the North Node ruler was squaring the Nodes in the 7th:
he did have the habit of both binding people to him as well as
upsetting them. His South Node ruler Venus, squaring Uranus, is on
the 8th house cusp: his ides about liberating women sexually (or
something like that), is something which came natural to him but was
a pattern of the past I suppose. Mars as ruler of the North Node is
conjunct Mercurius, so being verbally upsetting to people, speaking
out on relationships an independent way may well have been part of
