North Node in Aquarius
North Node in Aquarius and/or in the Eleventh House
With North Node in Aquarius, our South Node is in Leo. With North Node in the eleventh house, our South Node is in the fifth house.
A tendency to become overly attached to the drama of romance and personal relationships, to be willful and overly focused on getting what we want, and to resist being “one of the crowd” in an effort to stand out as unique and special, are some of the issues this position suggests. With this position, we need to let go of our fears in relationships by offering freedom to our partners instead of expecting our partners to act as we want them to act, to accept that we are all equal and that we can still be special if we belong to a community, to move towards greater impartiality, and to cultivate sensitivity to the needs of others. By letting go of the strong desire of getting what we want in the here and now, satisfaction will come more easily as we find that we get what we need. Our personal relationships and romances will suffer when we take things too personally, and expect others to follow a certain script that we have unconsciously written for them. Learning to let go of the need for drama and attention, and moving towards a more objective approach to our lives, as well as cultivating true friendships, will help us to achieve a greater sense of balance. Our relationships with othersas well as our relationship with ourselveswill benefit.

Cafe Astrology Review: This is an invaluable work, both for those new to Astrology and advanced students of the subject. The positions of the Nodes of the Moon by sign are interpreted in detail. The approach is both spiritual and practical. Jan Spiller offers advice for how to best work with the individual issues we face as a result of the placement of the highly sensitive nodal axis of the Moon.
Each chapter is dedicated to extensive interpretations of the position of the Moon’s North Node through each zodiac sign, and is broken down into sections: “Overview” offers specific attributes to develop, tendencies to leave behind, and the basic desires of the group; “Personality” describes the general traits and issues peculiar to the position; “Needs” reveals the basic needs of the individual along with practical suggestions for how to go about satisfying them; “Relationships” reveals some patterns of relating to significant others; “Goals” offers the strengths and weaknesses of each position’s tendency to seek what they want; and “Healing Theme Song” presents lyrics to the author’s songs designed to help heal the lessons for each group.
The author often writes of past lives, but keep in mind that the book is useful to those who don’t subscribe to past life theories. “Astrology for the Soul” is beautifully written and offers valuable insights into the lessons and issues that face each position (by sign) of the North Node. The chapters can be read just as easily using the house placement of the North Node–if your North Node is in the first house, for example, the North Node in Aries chapter will apply. Our Rating: A
Cafe Astrology Note: Although written almost 30 years ago, this book contains valuable information about the Nodes of the Moon by sign and house!
Cafe Astrology Note: New Moon Astrology by Jan Spiller, although dedicated mostly to the power of the New Moon in self-development efforts, contains insightful information about the Nodes of the Moon.
The first portion of the book is devoted to providing practical instructions for creating and verbalizing wishes in relation to the days of the New Moon in each sign of the zodiac. The New Moon periods are considered to be power periods in the astrological cycle, with the signs defining the areas of life and our personalities that we can focus our wishes for self-development on.
The section on the Nodes of the Moon offers practical solutions for releasing past karma based on our positions of the Moon’s Nodes by sign and house. Specific wishes and affirmations are included for these positions. Although very adequate in terms of interpretations of the Nodes of the Moon, Jan Spiller’s Astrology for the Soul (at left) covers these points in greater depth.
