    I’m curious about one aspect in my chart. I’ve got chiron conjunct south node in Cancer 9th house and i would like to know more about it, if you could 🙂

  • Pingback: My Homepage()

  • ValleyOak

    Hi Michelle! I do agree about NN in Cap/5th house description about turning your hobbies into a career. My NN ruler (Saturn) resides in the 11th house of networks and groups. The Moon is there as well trining Mercury in the third. The ruler of my 11th Moon in Cancer is in the 11th.
    I think the best way, or one of the best ways to serve humanity is through my writing. The 11th house rule gains and fans, so who knows. It is my goal. What do you think?

    • That’s a great goal. Interestingly, VallyOak, we have some placements in common. You may find, as I have, that you’re very good a nurturing/taking care of/babysitting groups of people. A creative writing group may help you find a niche to fit into.

  • leah

    is anyone up do doing a quick chart anylasis?  1:02 pm bellingham wa. april 2 1992

    • Michelle

      I don’t allow chart interpretations on this blog, just because it is a blog and not a forum. If you’re looking for a free interpretation via a forum,, and the Linda Goodman forum are all good choices.

      Also, I offer full astrology readings here:

  • leah

    this was great and very accurate….im 19. nn in capricorn in the 5th house. ( have been painting *.*) ( i have been dancing) (and i started to play the guitar) dear, its still a little terrifying. but keep on keepin on. my extravagent fb posts about how to save the world are lessening in desire. lol. goodbye my 11th house babies! i need to be more, selfish? what a concept. one that im starting to understand. personal personal personal. less mind mind mind.

    • Michelle

      Thank you for reading, Leah 🙂

  • Interesting timing Nv because I’ve been thinking about “fame” a lot recently for some reason. What is the difference between fame and infamy? What is the difference between someone who becomes very well-known versus someone who becomes a celebrity? What is the difference between an average celebrity and an all-out icon? I don’t have any answers yet.

    Anyway…it seems like you would have a strong pull to be famous again with the South Node and MC at the 00 cardinal points and with the Moon in the 10th house Your direction would be indicated by the Libra 4th house NN as well as the placement of Venus. Learning how to have a private life is part of your journey, but that doesn’t mean you can’t also have a great, potentially fame-worthy career.

  • It is confusing. It’s also hard to say without seeing your chart. If your Mercury or Venus are in Gemini, that would explain it because not only would they be in Gemini (the sign that love talking and making connections) but they’d also be in the 3rd house.

    • Anonymous

      Venus is in Gemini but its 2nd house

      • With Aries rising, using whole signs, that Gemini Venus would be in your 3rd house.

  • Lauren

    Well done! You hit my North Node in Cap on the cusp of my 4th H., right on the head! I call it the single mother Node.

    • Wow, that’s a really good name for it – totally fits!

  • Necessaryvodoo

    Hello milleche, what’s up? Can you help me with something?
    Reciently I just discovered that my Moon (18º Aries, tenth house) makes quintile my south node (0º Cancer). Moon rules the south node itself, and also the ascendant in 19º cancer. But nodes squares the midheaven in 0º Aries. Also there’s another two quintiles between the Uranus-Neptune conjunction (17-18º Cap) and the midheaven.
    Does it mean any kind of talent in being famous but a big “you shouldn’t” in between or what? Thank you!!

  • amoureuse

    north node cancer south cap- boy oh boy, u hit it right bullesye baby. got to learn to be responsible for my family. i am half way there.

    • Which house axis is it?

      • Anonymous

        3rd house 13 degree. near my sun which is 17 degreee. what does it mean when it is located in my 3rd house. i am now in my period of life when i sort of working at home.

        • What is your ascendant again?

          • Anonymous

            my ascendant is aries. what does it mean to me now?

            • If you have Aries rising, using whole signs, your Cancer Sun moves into the 4th house. A 4th house Sun person is much more likely to be reclusive and to like staying at home than someone with the Sun in the 3rd house. A 3rd house Sun wants to get out and meet people and make connections. A 4th house Sun needs private time to recoup and doesn’t necessarily want to be out and about in the world doing things. Using whole signs, your Saturn, Pluto and Mars all move into the 7th house, and Jupiter in Scorpio moves into the 8th house, all giving you a much stronger focus on relationships than on work and health as they would if they were placed in the 6th house.

              • Guest

                this is where i get confused. i love to stay at home but i also love talking to people or listening to people’s stories. i love parties etc etc esp when im hosting it. my aries (asc) is in 12th house . my first house is in taurus. im not sure which one i should choose.

  • Luna

    As ever, I do not understand what this can signify in my life. (NN 4th Capricorn.) I have no family of my own and never wanted children partly because I had far too much responsibility as a child for my birth family siblings. It is true that Cancer occupations and concerns come naturally to me, which is how the SN is supposed to play out. But my NN leaves me nonplussed. I am somewhat surprised as your work on this site always resonates with my own placements and aspects.

    • What is your rising sign Luna?

      • Luna

        Hi Michelle, I am Virgo 12th sun, Virgo ascendant. Mars is conjunct my NN by 1 degree 36 mins. Chiron situate in Cap 4 also BTW.

        • With Virgo rising, using the whole signs house system, your North Node actually falls in the 5th reflecting many issues about having children, and in Capricorn, taking on the responsibility that children bring. Working through your feelings about those issues is probably part of your journey. You might spend more time taking care of relative strangers than creating things of your own in your life to protect and be responsible for.

      The whole karmic nodes thing was just made up out of some guy’s imagination. Easy as that. There isn’t any way to test it or falsify it, so… perfect!

      • Luna

        A fallacy, yes.

        • billow

          Yes, practically speaking. That’s some strong saturn going on? It’s a nice earthy touch, you two.

  • billow

    I would agree with your past life memories concept. There is an equating of present life experience with past life scenarios as the story comes to consciousness. For me, when the picture is formed, it is ready for release. You can paint them though. Although I am about release, I can see the painting of them in that the artist expression may speak to someone else aiding their release.

    I, too, do not see what is called karma as punishment. For me, I have bought onto certain service in past lives. We all got a job to do right? Some of that stuff carried over and did not belong in this lifetime. That service got me into some messes and those are the nightmares I needed to release. It was then I started to see some pictures of light.

    The thing I liked when I ran into nodal astrology was that it deepened my connection to life by the mere idea of it. Life wasn’t only about fitting in and making my way in the economy anymore. It also helped me to be more accepting of the morons oh I mean others.

    • Life wasn’t only about fitting in and making my way in the economy anymore.

  • Anonymous

    Wow. North Node in Cap in 5th /South Node in 11th house here. You were speaking my life in some of these delineations. I am amazed by how much your delineation sounds like the very challenges I have been faced with the last couple of years. A few short years ago, I wouldn’t have even recognized that this is an issue for me, but I have run squarely into it these last couple of years. You really nailed me in a few of these lines like:

    “Becoming less emotionally involved with casual acquaintances. Spending less time caring about the strangers you meet on the internet. No longer mothering your friends. Becoming driven to pursue your personal interests and to do something with them.”


    “Developing discipline when it comes to your personal interests. Finding ways to do something practical with your interests. Turning your personal passion into a business. Gaining the discipline needed to play the guitar, dance, golf, or whatever else it is that you want to do.”

    Thank you for such a great post as usual!

    • Woo hoo! I’m glad you liked this one 🙂

  • Necessaryvodoo


    • You’re welcome! Lol…

      Which house axis do you have?

      • Necessaryvodoo

        HI michelle, first of all, excuse me for my comment in all caps. You know, I’ve been waiting for this article with a lot of expectation!
        My north node is in the sixth house, and the only two good aspects I have in the whole chart are moon sextile saturn and mars sextile saturn, but these days when “using grief or emotional upsets as an excuse for cheating on your diet or failing to go to the gym”, I just wonder where they are to help me.

      • Necessaryvodoo

        Oh I forgot to tell you, you really help to people with this blog. Thank you, and never stop to do that 😀

  • I have the 1st House Capricorn / 7th House Cancer in my chart. Aspect wise, North Node conjunct Uranus ( 2° 32′), trine Jupiter (-4° 04′), sextile Venu (4° 50′) and quincunx Chiron (0° 36′). I remember commenting on the article about “rulers of our nodes”, and I’m still baffled at what mine could mean. Capricorn rules over Saturn and Cancer rules the Moon. In my chart, both the Moon and Saturn are in Aquarius but Saturn is in the 1st house, almost in the 2nd House and the Moon is in my 2nd house. The conjunct between the Moon and Saturn is 3°29′. Can anyone help me on this?

    • To do you justice Levi, I’d have to see your chart and give you a paid reading. It’s just too much to try to delineate with only data, and in the confines of a comment.

  • Ellen Longo

    Definitely an article to bookmark and refer to again and again. Thanks!

    • You’re welcome. Is this your axis Ellen? Which houses are your nodes in?

  • Kelly

    I have this one with the north node on 5th house. Its everything so true. I do have a nest o friend and, though they are amazing, sometimes i lost so much time caring about what they think, and trying to make whatever they think is cool, instead of worring about my own interests.
    About internet too, i used to have lots of online friends, and i carried so much about them that seens pointless.

    Can you say something about dating? I know that the 5th house is related to love affairs, but i don’t know if capricorn break this.

    • Good question.

      Capricorn is so different from the 5th house where dating is concerned. Some possibilities is that you take dating much more seriously than the average person, and that it’s not all fun and games to you. In relation to the North Node, settling for less is not in your best interests when it comes to your romantic partners. With Cap NN in the 5th, setting high standards for yourself about who you will or will not date can be a growth experience. What do you think?

      • Kelly

        uhmm, you say choosing your partner better, and not stay with anyone? Not that cancer would have this profile, but since 5th house is about dating, and capricorn is about status, maybe it has somethig about dating someone that has a good place on society, like royalities or celebrities?

        • I’m not sure where you got “not stay with anyone” from, but choosing someone with status is a possibility.

    • leah

      im working on this too. nn in cap in the 5th. anyone? dating? 5th house? ugh? personal personal. i cannot tell you how many times i have crushed someone not realzing that the entire time they were showing their hearts to me. i was just floating above them in my 11th house head not being present at all. im slowly peeking my head through. realizing, thats its actually quite nice down here. its warm, and a but fuzzy. sometimes i jump back up. but its to and fro. we can do it girl. lets, play? rawr.

      i can relate to being really concerned about what everyone else is thinking. i finally around a month ago just realized oh, me! what am i wanting here. lol where do i want to go and what do i love? ive been at home painting, and playing guitar. figuring this out

    I have this position (North Node in Capricorn conjunct the Descendant, South Node in Cancer conjunct the Ascendant) but I don’t use the Lunar Nodes the same way most modern Western astrologers do. I see them as benefic and malefic points, and representing points of inflow and release without any connotations of multi-incarnation “thou shoulds” or whatnots.

    • So would you interpret the malefic point of the Cancer North Node conjunct the ascendant?

      • Anonymous

        Well, don’t forget there are mitigating factors– the conjunction of Sirius with SN and also the conjunction of the antiscion of Saturn with SN (any antiscion is benefic) both mitigate the malefic nature of South Node on the Ascendant, along with the antiscion of the South Node conjunct Saturn. But the effect is there anyway, and is related to the whole affair along with the Sun/Moon Midpoint being there. Cancer represents the family, and I have no family, forcing me to be supremely selfish and self-serving in my decisions. I also spend a lot of time in solitude and prefer to eat alone. North Node on the 7th is a benefic– good things often come to me through mates.

        • Pursuing relationships brings good things for you; it’s an area of growth.

          gh, which of your planets are in detriment, fall, dignity or exaltation again? (off topic, I know).

          • Anonymous

            Venus in rulership, other planets have other dignities like Moon and Mercury being in mutual reception by triplicity and face, Saturn being triplicity lord, in hayz and in the house of His joy, Jupiter in hayz, and etc. No planets in detriment or in fall.

            • I won’t have time to give you a proper answer till tomorrow…which reminds me that I still have to respond to billow’s question in the other post.

              • billow

                Gracehoper is far more interesting than my question. I have no clue about Sirius. You could answer that instead.

                • What about Sirius?

                  • billow

                    Like what is it? And what can it mean to a chart.? It sounds so serious.

                    • billow

                      Oh it’s fixed star stuff. I don’t think I can go out there at this time. While I was searching astro dienst though I found something called Silly. It’s conjunct my Uranus which is sextile Mecury, and opposite Chiron. That’s enough head bend for me for now.

                    • What is Silly’s number?

                    • billow

                      I typed in 129234. It is amazing the amount of space debris that is catalogued. I have the feeling that one could really do some off the wall daily comedic constructions with off the cuff interpretations just using the names.

                    • Silly is at 11 Taurus 50′ in my chart, conjunct my South Node at 12 Taurus 45′. Too funny. I guess it’s not in my best interest to act silly….oddly that fits in nicely with an epiphany I had today.

                    • billow

                      Your Silly is trine my natal Sun and sextile my natal moon to the exact degree.

                    • billow

                      I lied, your Silly is trine my natal Jupiter, and sextile my natal moon to the exact degree.

                    • My Silly trine your Jupiter- that’s a lot of unstoppable silly.

                      Good thing this response column has its limits, then. 😀

                    • We’d probably do really well on testing the limits of silliness. If Neptune or Uranus were involved, it could venture into the absurd.

                      Oh then, my Silly Uranus is around 4-5 Leo.

                      I really like looking at my progressed chart. Took another peak at my natal chart and got nauseous.

                      Anywho, Varuna is at 12 taurus natal, 11 taurus prog. That’s supposed to be the great equalizer? Silly Silly balance. There is a new moon in May at 12 taurus, are you headed for a whole new silly?

                    • New Moon on my South Node, interesante. My progressed Venus is 13 Taurus and progressed Jupiter is 11 Taurus. I’m smelling a large cash windfall! Hah. Or the IRS. This is all in my progressed 8th house, natal 9th house.

                    • Silly is at 11 Taurus 50′ in my chart, conjunct my South Node at 12 Taurus 45′. Too funny. I guess it’s not in my best interest to act silly….oddly that fits in nicely with an epiphany I had today.

                    • Ha.

                      Sirius struggles at a personal level as it seeks to link small personal actions with great and/or sacred moments, to find the sacred in the mundane actions of daily life, and in this process the individual can be sacrificed to the greater expression.

                      Sirius is fixed at 14 Cancer 05′

                      I’ve had my parents on the brain alot as my moon sextile sun quincunx’s chiron, with the transiting sun and mars parading by my natal chiron in aquarius. They both had cancer suns and they were masters of the mundane. My mother’s joy at the smallest things brought me to my knees in tears of joy during her final years (disclainer: when she wasn’t being a pain in the butt). It was her saving grace. And of course my old moon is there. I did her euglogy (I’m really godd at that: Pluto on the midheaven. Ha!). And her sense of sacred in the mundane pretty much sums up what I wrote about. I believe I termed her a zen master.

            • I think relationships are an area of growth for everyone
              I agree but I think some people have a lot more to learn from them than others. For some people, relationships are a huge issue, in the way that health is a huge issue for others.

              they presuppose not only reincarnation (which I actually have no problem with) but a Buddhist conception of karma along with it
              I don’t necessarily believe in a punishment/retribution type of karma. I don’t think, “If you are bad, you will be punished.”

              I actually do have issues with past lives.
              One concept I have about past life memories is that they are actually like dreams. In an effort to assimilate, understand and derive meaning for our existence, our minds create a story that we can relate to, not unlike what it does in the dreaming state to deal with the influx of information during a normal day. Whether or not these “memories,” or stories, are actually true and represent “real” lives, well, I’m not sure it matters that much. The point is that these self-generated stories hold meaning for the individual. Like many people, some times I view time as linear, and other times I see things as happening concurrently.

              The purpose of these posts is not tell people what to do, but to suggest an area of growth and opportunity in a particular area that they are unfamiliar with.

              Hoojie woojie all right. I thought the christians hard to swallow with original sin, but this new age obsession with dragging millennia’s worth of prior grievances around makes me want to drop the backpack of Bunyan’s pilgrim right on their collective foot. Sorry but just been reading a bestselling and wealthy – aren’t they all – man who says we shouldn’t really ‘interfere’ if say a child is being abused, because it’s all in the Plan – god’s of course, or ‘Spirit’s’. At least some published astrologers who nod their psychological interpretive hats at Jung and Freud – and are often correct – take issue with ‘karma’ when it comes to victims – now there’s a loaded word in the new age lexicon – of rapine, war, domestic abuse and so on. As I keep reminding myself, I am NOT the christ, the buddha or whomever, and I don’t expect I’ll be rising to their station anytime soon, at least in this lifetime!

              I enjoyed your choice of verb here: ‘Cancer represents the family, and I have no family, forcing me to be supremely selfish and self-serving in my decisions.’ Very droll.

                It’s hard being selfless when you’re alone, ironically.

                  Yes, I agree. It just struck me funny. I have 12 house sun so seem to have head stuck up my own arse most of my adult (self-conscious?) life. Altho I do absolutely need alone time, after growing up in large raucous intense family, and 30+marriage now caput, it is downright lonely to be this much alone now. I am thrown entirely onto my self and tho I obviously require this (Pluto moving through 4th and Saturn now in 1st with huge intensity to come in 2nd – home of Neptune then Saturn cj Venus opposed moon), less self would be most welcome reprieve just now. A stranger in a strange land once again.
