    I’m a Leo nn in the 6th house and I’m really loved by co workers and by people in authority, but once I’m moving on up some people get Jelous. It’s that bc of my north node or just Human nature? And I can honestly say I just lead by example and love it. I enjoyed your blog. I’m thankful for my past Aquarius path and fortunate to have a Leo north node. I love the pride of being an authentic creative person that stalls has an eye to resonate with humanity. Great blog.

  • Hayley

     I’m so impressed with this, it describes so accurately!  Thankyou for sharing this information! x

    • Michelle

      Alright 😀

  • Michelle

    Thanks, Lola. Was there anything in particular that you liked?

  • Iola

    Just found your site, I was actually doing research on my Scorpio 3rd house and found the info that you have here very interesting.
    My NN Leo is in the 11th house and I enjoyed reading your description. Thank You.

  • Linda Eaves

  • Linda Eaves

    Michelle, I love this one. I am Leo NN and I love knowing about myself and being my own best friend. So glad to have found you. 

    • Michelle

      Thank you for reading and for taking the time to comment, Linda.

  • Nospam

    Good stuff, oh ….  I am here!!!  2.7.62 #160304

    • Michelle

      I don’t understand what #160304 means.

  • Michelle

    It’s a strange mixture to want to be seen, but also to want to be tucked away for periods of time. Using whole signs my Leo Moon is in the 12th house. 

    • James

      I have Leo in the 12th house in the nn. It is a strange energy, as if I have chosen the path of a Lion who must learn to swim in the ocean. The sun, my nn ruler, is in libra in the second house conjunct Pluto.

      • Michelle

        Interesting image – a lion swimming in the ocean!

        • James

          It is just such a strange north node – it doesn’t seem to offer a traditional career or familial path… More like becoming in an individual or artist in the world of karma or what is unseen? I feel more comfortable in the daily life of intellectual or collective work (south node). It Is a south node that wants to serve humanity in a tangible cerebral manner. Maybe that’s why this nn feels like learning to swim in a lions body.

          Thanks for putting this website together.. It is helpful for those of us trying to get a handle on the north node!

          • Michelle

            You’re welcome, James. 

            “Maybe that’s why this nn feels like learning to swim in a lions body.”
            A big, warm, regal, impressive, intimidating body at that.

  • babs

    I have NN in Leo in the 12th house, and I’d say you were pretty accurate.  I have moon in 12th too though, so alone time is a big deal for me.  I do crave to be special however, and I do crave to be apprecated.  I currently do my best work at home and alone.  I would like to be seen and be special, not always work from behind the scenes, although it has been that way for a while.  One of my jobs is a massage therapist, and am seen and appreciated for that, but it is in a dark little room with just one other person.  lol

      Hi Viridiangrey,

      Your link expired, but I made a screencast about this today:

      It’s less than 5 minutes, and you be able to determine where your north node is after watching it (I hope).

  • Hieronimuss Astroknowlogy

    Reading your post is like a wonderful meditation which should be done once a month to tune the un-expressed or over-expressed. For NN 3rd house Leo you may want to add for fun “Ease in finding a parking” and “quirky but inventive and motivating neighbors, always ready to help”. Much Love!

    • Michelle

      “Ease in finding parking”….interesting…considering that my own North Node is in the 3rd (though in Scorpio) I actually struggle with many normal daily negotiations like finding a parking spot (which is why I tend to park far away from entrances). Thank you for reading H. A.

  • Chelsa

    Hi Michelle-
    I’m new to you [1st time reader] but not new to astrology, and i’ve gotta say I Iove your down to earth, no-nonsense, funny approach to astrology….this is a Leo NN 11th person talking. : ) Your article was dead-on, but leaves me to beg the question now what? I stumbled upon you because i’m at a loss and not sure what the heck I should do in life….btw I can really relate to your Taurus article about fullfilling your SN…I got a degree in Psychology and a Master’s in HR and guess what, both are now shelved! ; ( 
    Darn Gemini Midheaven…Do you have an article or any advice that combines both NN and Mid Heaven? 

    • Michelle

      Hi Chelsa, 

      Thank you for stopping by AstroFix and taking the time to comment. I don’t have any articles that combine the Nodes and the Midheaven – yet. That does seem like a useful combination, doesn’t it? I will keep that idea in mind for a future series or E-book.

  • daisy

    NN, Venus, Moon, ASC all in LEO
    NN, Pallas, Venus in 12th
    + going through 1st Saturn Return, and all the madness of this past summer (grand cross, eclipses)
    basically, i’m a hot, hot mess full of crazy contradictions,
    trying to learn how to shine in my own unique 12th house way…
    I must say that this blog has been a great help through my healing process….
    thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!

    • Michelle

      Hi daisy,

      I missed this comment!
      All that Leo I think points to not letting your needs and want you want get taken for granted. Even if you find yourself working in the background, you can’t just disappear into the background.

  • Lili

    I have the opposite – South Node Le (10th), North Node Aquarius (4th)

    • Michelle

      I’ll get to that combination- stay tuned 😀 Thank you for reading Lili.

      • Lili

        Thank you, Michelle. I can’t wait! :)
        I LOVE this blog and the detail and dedication you put into it .

        • Michelle

          Thank you :)

  • LB

    Hi Michelle – I liked this post; my mom had North Node in Leo (in the 12th, conjunct her Virgo rising) and reading this made me realize how much it affected her outlook on life, as well as her choices.

    She started out feeling like an “ugly duckling”, and with South Node in the 6th, she learned early on to always put the needs of others before her own. Eventually she blossomed, and began to receive lots of attention for her glamorous appearance; she also developed her creative abilities (sewing, dancing, fashion), although she never seemed completely comfortable being in the limelight. I think the 12th house placement limited her somewhat in that regard. She once had a job sewing clothes for the popular movie stars at MGM during the 40’s, but quit when they expected her to compromise her creative integrity by doing a sloppy job. She also trained to be a professional dance instructor, but gave it up; I think because she really wanted to dance, not teach.

    I think her undoing was her misplaced compassion (i.e., “enabling – she also had Neptune in the 12th), as well as her false sense of pride. She seemed to value easy, superficially charming people and relationships, especially with people who didn’t challenge her. Once – when I was really angry with her – I called her a “party girl”. That silly comment hurt her deeply. She always had a hard time differentiating between personality and character, which is probably why she found me so difficult to understand.

    In the end, she was mostly abandoned by those superficial relationships. Thankfully, she did have her faith, which I think sustained her and gave her strength as her dementia progressed, and she became more and more isolated from most of the people she loved. Actually, all of the people she loved, except for me. 12th house placements can demand a lot.

    • Michelle

      Fascinating. This really sounds like her nodal axis. It seems like she intuitively headed in her NN direction, which had mixed results.

      I don’t think Leo ever intentionally acts like a party animal or socialite at the expense of everything else. They do get upset when people think they are being superficial- they have a lot of integrity and dignity. Personally, I think pride is Leo’s most self-sabotaging trait.

      • LB

        I was soooo frustrated with her when I called her a party-girl. Really, she wasn’t at all superficial, nor was she normally a party animal. In fact, most of the time she was very hardworking, dedicated and loyal (in her own way). But her 12th house North Node squared her Taurus Moon, and I think that contributed to some of her more self-indulgent qualities, such as her stubborn refusal to budge or to participate in relationships that demanded too much self-examination.

        And like you said, her pride could be very self-sabotaging. She did get much better as she got older, with a few notable exceptions. On the plus side, she could be VERY loving. I thought your 12h house description fit her very well, especially the part about facing the grief associated with feeling under appreciated (and abandoned).

        • Michelle

          to participate in relationships that demanded too much self-examination.
          I wonder if that is true of heavy Leo types. My mother has 4 planets in Leo – she is like that too.

          • LB

            Before I met my husband – and when I was much younger – I lived with a boyfriend (a 12th house Leo Sun/ Leo rising) with 5 planets in Leo, plus his rising. He loved me enough to realize that our values weren’t compatible (he loved his various addictions, including other women – which naturally was a deal breaker for me), but not enough to compromise by giving anything up. So he did the most honorable thing he could do under the circumstances and reluctantly let ME go instead (wise choice). He absolutely hated my interest in astrology and psychology, especially as it related to our relationship. He was charming and popular, and shined in social situations, but had trouble in intimate relationships that demanded more of him; I think he liked being in charge and viewed my expectations (and probing nature) as a challenge to his authority.

            I know not everyone with a strong Leo signature is like that, but some are. I’ve personally know quite a few serial cheaters who also happen to be Leos, although I guess you could say they were loyal in that they remained with their spouses. Conversely, I’ve known several who were very committed in their primary relationships and who would never even think of cheating; as with everything, I think it just depends.

            Thanks for letting me go slightly off-topic here, Michelle. The subject of Leo’s loyalty (and the inherent contradiction I’ve often observed) is something that’s always baffled me.

            • Michelle

              Thank you for going a bit off topic – you always have great insights to share.

              I do think the cheating factor depends. I have a Leo 12th house and Moon in Leo and I’m so loyal it’s almost ridiculous. I’d break up before cheating.

              What’s funny about the lack of psychological depth with Leo placements is that Carl Jung was a Sun Leo and Joseph Campbell had the Moon in Leo. So, it really does depend on the rest of the chart.

              • Laberry22

                Ridiculously loyal is a very good thing. I have a 12th house Uranus in Leo, as well as a 5th house Moon, and like you, I’d choose a break-up over cheating.

                It makes sense that when Leo chooses to shine that built-in, life-affirming light of theirs on psychological/spiritual subjects, their insights can be profoundly illuminating. I’ve also noticed how some of the most gifted astrologers (like yourself) have strong Leo placements.

                • Michelle

                  Thank you :) *blushing*

                • Molly

                  Awesome article. I have Leo sun 12th house, Leo rising, NN and Uranus first house. I must say being ridiculously loyal isn’t always a good thing. I am or maybe I should say was, the most loyal person I know. Always giving people a second chance, third chance, 4th chance, ect. Finally after being brutally stabbed in the back by family and close friends I learned my lesson. No more blindly giving trust, loyalty and putting everyone else first. I always expected people to give me in return the incredible loyalty I gave them. My mistake. From now on people have to jump through hoops to prove they deserve my ridiculous loyalty and even then it’s a crap shoot.

                  • Michelle

                    I agree Molly. If we want to be loyal we can do that, but we have to have the realistic expectation that it may not be reciprocated.

                    • Msfullroller

                      “…If we want to be loyal we can do that, but we have to have the realistic expectation that it may not be reciprocated.”

                      Michelle, Sis you are magnific!! I think you have given me the lesson of transiting Neptune conjunct Venus activating my grand square, along with the big picture meaning of the grand square. 9th house NN in Taurus and 3rd house Neptune in Scorpio complete the line up with the above. My father’s Sun is conjunct my NN by 2 degrees.

                      I feel a weight has been lifted off my shoulders in that yes, what you have said is true and that it is a two way-street.

                  • Msfullroller

                    Whoa! This exchange regarding the 12th house Leo NN has me speechless and emotional. Gonna stop and wave to LB who I always enjoy reading her comments because she never fails to teach me something every time I read her comment. ***wavin***

                    I don’t have this placement but having a 12th house Leo Moon opposing Venus in Aquarius myself with a mother who has Sun/Jupiter/Pluto/NN all conjunct in Leo. The post, this particular exchange and Molly’s comment has given me a clearer insight to a 12th house Leo Moon than anything else that has been written on it and a bit more insight to our shall I say complex relationship. The part about LB’s mom wanting to be a dancer and a party girl…wow. My mom wanted to be a dancer and she was a party girl. She still tells me to this day that I kept her from going to the joint (that’s a term used for tavern back in the 60s/70s) because I was born on Friday instead of that Sunday like the doc told her I would arrive.

                    Ridiculously loyal and paying the high price for that…yeah I’m learning that lesson all to well when Saturn went into Virgo and the sh*t keeps getting deeper. So Sis, I hear ya. What’s that saying, 1st time shame on you, 2nd time shame on me?

                      For some reason I missed some of these comments the first time around.  I had to say MsFullroller, that is too weird about your mom wanting to be a dancer and liking to party – just like mine. 

                      I had the thought recently that my mom’s Leo NN in the 12th kind of described how at the end of her life (when she was institutionalized) was when she finally got the uncomplicated, unconditional, love, care and attention from me (and a few others) on a daily basis that I’m sure she always wanted.  Even with her diminished faculties, she still managed to be pretty funny.  In spite of her lack of vocabulary, her sense of humor and warmth lasted up until the end and was very endearing.

    Why is that do you think? You seemed to go light on the lion.

    • Michelle

      What do you mean by “I went light?”

      • billow

        Perhaps it’s the difference beterrn node writes and aspect writes. Am new to the light of your wisdom but so far you lay out a very broad smorgasboard of possibilities in your writes. You know the good, the bad, and the ugly.

        Thinking about this, I think what can I really say about the lion. Would it do any good anyway? Not that I don’t admire the manifestation ability.

        • Michelle

          So perhaps there was not enough variety of good, bad and ugly (one of my favorite movies by the way!)

          • billow

            I sure the heck am not going to throw dirt at no lion. That clawed paw can be leeeeeeeeeeeethal. Growl. Oh, I mean roar.

            Your opening comment was thought provoking. That’s something. You mentioned once that leo can be stubborn. Perhaps the cat in the chart is where one must do what one must do. It’s good to contemplate the sun on this windy cold wintry day.

            And how come Clint’s teeth were always glaringly clean and white in the midst of all that sweat and dirt?

            • Michelle

              The lion is commanding, sometimes commandeering. They have a personal vision for how things should be done, which others sometimes lack. Perhaps that is why they often end up in charge.

              Lack of attention to details that kills reality in film: Too perfect teeth, too white teeth, eyebrows that have been waxed when it didn’t exist, makeup when there was none….

      I thought so. Thanks for preventing this post from being a total dud!

    well, probably there aren’t many people with north node in leo around here…

    • Michelle

      Maybe…I wonder if Leo NN people, because they are moving away from Aquarian tendencies, are less interested in astrology.

        😉 This exchange between you and Diggy cracked me up, Michelle. You said, “Maybe…I wonder if Leo NN people, because they are moving away from Aquarian tendencies, are less interested in astrology.”

        I am actually increasingly interested in astrology, but am moving away from doing organizational political work. (I am NN in Leo 6th House). I am also moving away from the Aquarian tendency to put the needs of the group ahead of the needs of the self. 😉 I am learning how to take care of my health and be more self-disciplined with my work. I definitely also have had to find a way to have leadership over my own work life (I also have Sun in 10th with Mercury in 10th conjunct MC, so working for others has not worked so well for me). Learning to be who I truly am rather than who I feel people want me to be is also an area of spiritual growth for me.

        This is a great entry… I love how you highlight a lot of key words and phrases for how the Leo/Aquarius nodal axis works in the 6th/12th axis. Gracias!

        • Michelle

          De nada 😉

          I love the way you describe your nodal axis. I think that not letting yourself get taken for granted as an employee is a key lesson for NN in Leo in the 6th. Even if you do have to work for someone, you can’t just be a worker drone.

        My North Node is in Leo at 1 degree conjunct Mars at 29 degrees of Cancer, and in the 11th house.  I have studied astrology since I was eleven years old, and am obsessed!  But, like you said of the 11th house placement, many people have no idea what I’m talking about, and look at me as if I’m a nut when I tell them all the copy machines are acting up because mercury is retrograde =)  

        I have looked all over for an interpretation of NN Leo in the 11th, and have only experienced success today, and I love your interpretation.  However, my Mean Node is 29 deg. of Cancer, but my True Node is at 1 deg. of Leo, so my own North Node has confused me a bit.  

        Thank you for your interpretations on the North Node in Leo… I feel it’s a fabulous North Node =)

          Hi Amy,

          I’m so glad you found success with this description. Was there anything in particular that resonated with you?

          Most node interpretations books that I’m aware of address the position of the north node.

            Hello Michelle, 

            Much of what was written resonated with me on some level.  I am thirty years old now, and upon reflection I can see a pattern in my life that truly reflects my North Node symbolism.  I was always, and still am, painfully shy.  Expressing my individuality and creative talents has always been difficult for me.  But there have been numerous times in my life where it seems I have been pushed onto center stage with all of my awkwardness, wether I liked it or not.  In group settings and work I have always stuck out like a sore thumb at first.  However, when I maintain my individuality and personal values it seems to work out in acceptance and appreciation of all my quirks from the group.  But if I go in the opposite direction and try to fit in and follow, it backfires, and I somehow end up scapegoated… or “ostracized”.  It hasn’t always been easy, but maintaining individuality, as well as generating warmth and expressing that warmth, is a big part of my experience.

            The ruler of my North Node is an unaspected Sun in Virgo in the 12th house.  Mars is conjunct my NN from 29 deg of Cancer.  The ruler of my Mars is a Moon in Libra which is part of an intense stellium in my first house which includes Saturn, Jupiter, Moon, Venus, and Pluto.  My Ascendent is 25 deg Virgo with Mercury conjunct at 27 deg Virgo.  Relationships have been very prominent in my life, but equally is isolation and a need to disconnect.  I am self taught in many things and work on my creative projects in solitude, but have always experienced difficulty when expressing who I truly am inside and what I have created with the outside world.  But since my Saturn Return, I have experienced many profound inner changes…

            I have several books about the nodes, and they all discuss the sign and house placement of the Nodes separately.  This is the first time I have read explicitly about the North Node in Leo in the 11th house.  Thank you again, and what are your thoughts on planets conjuncting the North Node??

              Hi Mykrise ,

              were you by any chance born in 1981, near August 31?

  • Michelle

    Somehow I just knew this one wasn’t going to get many comments. Maybe that’s why it took so long to finish it.
