        Oh yes, things like “Maintaining inner integrity while letting your vulnerability peek through” or “Making the climb to put your most vulnerable self up for public scrutiny / Learning how to protect your emotional life while simultaneously exposing it and making it public…”. But it was pretty much everything!

        I´m trying to make a career out of acting and altho I may be facing many difficulties for different reasons (it´s hard to be so private and conservative at heart and be trying to go out there, to the public, exterior WORLD). But reading this I realized I´m on the right track. And felt happy for this reason.

    Wonderfu! , very accurately describe how I feel and am .I still crave that ..success and recognition though,and still worry about reputation….I’m a NN cancer 4th and Cap 10th.Conjunct my IC/MC axis respectively.I’m quite emotional,even when I probably shouldn’t be (like at the hair salon yesterday lol).I’d probably be pretty detached otherwise because of predominance of air in my chart ,but thanks to my nodal axis and my jupiter/moon(,moon being ruled by my 4th)’ve got a ton of tenderness and a brain that won’t quit at the same time.I also love Cancer folks.My moms a Cancer,I married a Cancer (then divorced him not because he was too Cancerian,but because of the opposite ) My current loves Mom Is a Cancer too( a year plus a day off from my moms bday) Some of my closest bonds are with watery folks :)

      That’s a great sign that you have so many Cancer people in your life. They provide good role models for your NN energy.

        I have a Taurus moon :) It’s my one planet in the Earth element,unless you count my angles such as my MC ^^

        Cancers generally don’t make fun of you when you cry.Or feel like they are being displaced or made uncomfortable(like Gemini seems to be).When you need someone to help comfort you,you don’t want to feel like a burden.Someone with a Cancer influence on their persona will more likely hug and listen to you than scorn you for your show of emotion.I was born to a Cancer and I am very attached to my Mom,she’s the only person in the whole world I feel understands me.Therefore even in the absence of much water in my chart,when someone comes to me and needs a shoulder to cry on,I offer not just my shoulder,but my heart and ears too :)

          I completely agree. My mom has Cancer rising with Moon in the 4th and she is one of the most nonjudgmental sympathetic people I’ve ever known.

    I have node in cancer in the 10th house and am training to be a therapist so I feel extremely validated. However, I feel drawn to apply all the node lessons to my life, from all the houses (maybe just to a lesser degree) because they all seem so right on about nurturing myself and exposing vulnerability and cultivating relationship. Can all of it apply if you have node in cancer?

    #
    • Michelle says:

      I’m not sure if I understand what you mean. You might relate to each house “lesson” but I would use the corresponding sign/house combination for your cusps. So, it you have NN in Cancer 10th house, you would look at that combination. However, if you have Leo in the 11th house you could look at NN in Leo in the 11th house to see what the lesson might be, even though that isn’t your particular lesson to concentrate on. Does that make sense?

    I really appreciate this juxtaposition of sign and house. There is a lot of good material out there on the north node, but not many that combine the two. Although I’ve been reading about astrology to get self insight for years (put it down to having sun, mercury, mars and jupiter in 12th house), I’m only now coming to appreciate the lessons of my North Node (Cancer in 2nd house) I couldn’t for the life of me figure out that my lessons were both to nurture and focus on being responsible for myself. It never occured to me that it might be about learning to nurture…myself! And what a weird thing to be scared of…and yet I have been, yet never knew it.

    Put it doesn to having sun, mercury, mars and jupiter in 12th house :-)

    Thanks again

    Hello,

    My NN is in Cancer, on the cusp of the 4th house (technically still in the 3rd house). Thus, conjunct my IC. The article was very insightful. I’m wondering, given the position of my NN, would there be some blend of 3rd and 4th house Cancer NN energies? Or does it make more sense to read it strictly in the 3rd? Any thoughts on the IC tie in? Thanks!!!

    #
    • Michelle says:

      You should read both descriptions. I’ve noticed that people with the nodes on the cusps tend to relate to both descriptions. The IC tie? A strong emphasis on developing a foundation based on personal feelings and insights rather than public recognition or approval.

    this is all uncannily bang on target. I discovered just today about retrogrades the north node and the houses..and also discovered i have a retrograde north node in cancer, 1st house. i am just opening up to knowing how sensitive i am (infact, i qualify as hyper sensitive) and it was seen as mad/nutty/senti by people around, which i internalized for years. again, opening up to a partner who was intuitive enough to point out i am sensitive–that was the key to unlock many many things. i just wrote y’day to someone that i am strong and vulnerable both, which is true. now m learning to feel my way thru, self-protect (boundary issues, very porous and accepting of people’s energies) and — a domestic life? this i dnt know. my sun is in sagittarius 6th house, i love and am energized by travelling, a lot. otherwise it’s all very echoing where i am right now, learning. thanks.

    Thank you so much for this article! I’ve been researching the Nodes for a little while and your explanation made the most sense. I’m an 11th House Cancer/5th House Capricorn and your summary was accurate! (I also have a Cap Sun, Mercury and 5th House with Mercury in the 5th House! My Rising sign is Virgo and Moon in Sag)

    “Releasing the need to turn your hobbies into a business…Learning to bring empathy and sensitivity to group situations. Retaining your personal artistic integrity while developing intimate relationships within groups and organizations….Learning to be more sensitive to other people’s children….Easing up a bit on your personal creative discipline. Learning not to be so strict with your inner child. Letting yourself play more.”

    These resonate with me very deeply. I just completed a secondary bachelor’s in Social Work in May and learning to bring empathy and sensitivity was a big part of our courses and internship work. Before returning to school I’d struggled with finding a job or career path that fit in with my Bachelor’s in Literature. While I’ve been writing creatively since childhood, it was not as fulfilling as applying my nurturing side towards others. Although part of the social work field includes gathering information and drowning in paperwork. But now that I’m a Social Worker I intend to work with children and families to utilize my Child Welfare Concentration, allowing me to use my writing hobby with my career.

    I’m even more comfortable with expressing my sadness and now allow myself to cry in public. Haha My fellow Social Worker friends joke that it’s part of being a Social Worker, but I’m sure it’s also part of my NN Cancer shining through.

    I’m still struggling with lessening my restrictions on my inner child (of the 80′s), but watching old tv shows, movies, and painting enables me to let her come out and play until I have children of my own to share the fun.

    I look forward to reading your other posts! Keep up the great work!

    Michelle !
    Thank you so much for writing this. I find myself coming back to your words as it feels like being stuck in a sail boat and finally getting some warm waters, as well as nice winds to keep pushing me further. I’m NNCr/10th with 7 planets in 3rd house mostly Scorpio so it takes some time for me to really understand it.

    Is it possible that we feel totally averse to what our North Node is pushing us in the direction of? ‘Cause that seems to be the case for me. I’ve been going through my Saturn Return and I feel like a certain edge of my personality has been lifted off. It’s been really frustrating for me ’cause I liked myself a lot before and I don’t like this new ‘softer’ version, nor I know how to function with it. Not only that, but I never liked Cancers much, it’s like probably the sign I get along with the least. I rarely liked any Cancer guy and Cancer women go on my nerves. I’m never friends with Cancers. Or even if I am, they start annoying me pretty fast, and I’m usually not that easily annoyed by other people. On the other hand, I adore Capricorns, both men and women, as friends and lovers. 90% of the guys I was into were all Capricorns.

    Generally speaking, I don’t like showing my weaknesses and vulnerability. Is it possible that the path my soul has chosen for this life is so strange and unnatural for me? Shouldn’t we feel the need for that deep within? But it’s not registering for me at all. I even feel averse to opening myself up to that side, nor I see any benefits from it.

    #
    • mazzza says:

      Actually the reason why I’ve been feeling so confused about this is ’cause the description for my house (5th house) is really spot on with the things I’ve been really good at since I was a child. I WAS moving in that direction pretty successfully. (There are maybe 1 or 2 sentences there only that don’t resonate with me.) And in spite of that, even though I don’t deny the fact that I’m sensitive, I can always keep the cool exterior, maybe it’s just because I’m a Stoic. But even though I seem to have been doing well with the goals I set for myself, and I was a good combination of artistic sensibility and emotional detachment in certain situations (I don’t like theatricality of emotions) my Saturn Return have seemed to ‘weaken’ my approach in a lot of things, like I need to be headed towards some more extreme characteristics of Cancer which I personally never liked. If I was already doing well with my NN goals, why that confusion now with the direction I was in all this time? Or maybe that’s just Saturn Return messing with me.

      Sorry for confusing comments, but I’ve been really confused lately. lol

        That you’re so resistant to showing sensitivity and that you do perceive it as weakness is a good clue that that resistance might be holding you back. You don’t have to become a mushy, crying baby but some sensitivity might propel you forward. The confusion toward your NN goals now could be that you need to take a step back and pick up some pieces you left behind. I hope that helps some!
