North Node in Gemini/Third House, South Node in Sagittarius
North Node in Gemini and/or in the Third House
With North Node in Gemini, our South Node is in Sagittarius. With North Node in the third house, our South Node is in the ninth house.
A tendency to hold beliefs and opinions without gathering the facts, to being self-righteous and running roughshod over others’ feelings, to rushing through life and possessing excess nervous energy, and to lack tact in our relationships with others are some of the issues this position suggests. With this position, we easily crack under imagined pressures, and we are too often in a hurry for fear that our freedom will be curtailed if we stop long enough to gather facts and consider the details of everyday life. We need to learn to listen to others so that we discover the value of true communication and exchange, and to see both sides of a situation instead of throwing out dogma at others. We want to have meaningful and intelligent exchanges with others, and we want to teach others as well. But in order for us to succeed with these things, we need to learn that true learning and exchanges can only come when we listen to others. Learning to slow down, to be sensitive to social graces and networks, and to sensitize ourselves to others’ needs and communications without fear of being tied down, will release us from some of our nervous tension and help us achieve more happiness and inner balance.

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.
