Lunar Node Astrology 2023: North Node In Aries, South Node in Libra

Lunar Node Astrology 2023 North Node In Aries, South Node in Libra Girl and Her Moon

In Astrology, we look to the Lunar Nodes for insights into purpose, soul growth, destiny, and evolution. On 17 July 2023, the Lunar Nodes shift from Taurus and Scorpio, and into Aries and Libra where they will remain into January 2025.

Astrology is continuously beckoning us into change.

Whether through the daily movements of the Moon, the seasonal changes of the Sun, or the larger planetary bodies shifting once a decade. In this way, it mimics life. The ways in which we continue to meet opportunities, invitations, challenges, or new pathways. The way the Earth shifts through her seasons or trees continue to grow even after thousands of years. The way our bodies grow, change shape, age, decay.

All we know is change, whether subtle or overt, quiet and inward, or loud and tangible, our existence is that of change.

Floating in the tides of change this year is a shift in the direction of collective evolution for the next 18 months.

  • July 17, 2023 – January 11, 2025: North Node in Aries, South Node in Libra


What Are The North And South Nodes?

In Astrology, we look to the Lunar Nodes for insights into purpose, soul growth, destiny, and evolution. And just like the essence of destiny itself, the Lunar Nodes, made up of the North and South Node, aren’t a tangible object in our skies. Rather, they are mathematical points calculated by the Moon’s intersection with the ecliptic.

We each have a path of individual purpose shown by the location of the Lunar Nodes at our birth, and simultaneously, a shared destiny as a collective body, shown by the movements and cycles of the Lunar Nodes in present time. The location of the Lunar Nodes also dictates the signs that the Eclipses occur in for that period of time, bringing fated opportunities and destiny fuelled invitations.

Whether seen from an esoteric perspective as a guiding force inviting us into destiny and purpose, or the inevitable movement, change, and growth of life over time, the shift of the Lunar Nodes represent new themes that we are exploring as a collective, a new focus of consciousness, and a new direction of growth.

17 July 2023 brings a shift of the Lunar Nodes from the Taurus-Scorpio Axis, where they have been since January 2022, and into the Aries-Libra Axis, where they will remain until January 2025, inviting the cultivation of a new relationship to  independence, action, courage, desire and selfhood.

The North Node, representing the direction we are collectively evolving into, always sits in the opposite zodiac sign to the South Node, which represents what we are releasing.

Within each zodiac there is a primal or lower expression, and an evolved or higher expression. As the Nodes work with signs opposite to one another, a movement in one direction is a natural movement away from the opposite direction. As the North Node shifts into Aries and we are invited to explore the higher expressions and potentials of this fiery sign, we naturally move away from the lower, or more primal expressions of Libra, where the South Node sits.


North Node In Aries

Aries is the very first of the zodiac. Born from the all-encompassing consciousness of All-That-Is, it represents the initial introduction into a separate self, an individual self, an ‘I’.

It is a zodiac of fire, fuelled with inspiration and passion, desire and direction. Aries is here to begin, spark, create, and forge a new path. It needs the freedom, independence, and empowerment to move where guided, create where inspired, and take action based on its own knowing.

Aries as an archetype exists within each of us, and as the North Node shifts into and journeys through this sign, we are invited to reach into deeper and higher reserves of courage. Courage to be wholly and independently you. Courage to claim your desires and take action towards your vision. And the courage to say yes to yourself, even if that means saying no to others.

South Node In Libra

Sitting on the other side of the axis is Libra. If Aries is the Self, Libra is the other. It is partnership, collaboration, and another’s perspective. Libra harmonises the environment through intuitive adaptation, always keenly aware of what the other, or others, need at any moment to arrive in a state of peace, harmony, and fairness.

While Libra holds a beautiful medicine of diplomacy, grace, and elegance, as the South Node journeys through its realm it highlights the potentially harmful dimensions of the Air sign, the ones that, as a collective, we are ready to heal and evolve. Like the ability and need to be so in tune with another, that we leave the needs of the Self. Or the requirement for peace and harmony, so that we feel safe, so much so that we fall into unhealthy pleasing, passivity, and turning an eye to that which is not peaceful, yet still deserves our attention.


Navigating The Aries-Libra Lunar Node Axis

These 18 months are a deep exploration into where and how we tend to the other to the point of losing the Self, where and how we adapt to the environment to the point of losing the Self, and where and how we compromise on the desires and path that calls our name, so that another may shine.

Fears and beliefs that we are not whole and capable as an individual self come to the surface so that we may offer them healing, and all that we placed to the side or ignored in the name of peace return to the centre to remind us of what matters, and of what we deserve.

This time is offering healing to the fears we hold of what others think of us, and where and how we allow others perceptions to rule us, control us, hinder us. It asks us to bring love to the corners of ourselves we have given up in the name for another or others, so that we may revive these parts of ourselves and come into a fullness of our individual self.

There is a freedom that comes with directly claiming yourself, your path, your passions, and your needs, and this is the invitation of the North Node in Aries. To channel more of yourself into yourself, your desires, and your fulfilment.

As we tend to the fires of passion that burn within you and no one else, that fire begins to grow. It fuels us. It motivates us. It inspires us. It guides us. And it propels us forward. It burns so bright and beautiful that we cannot resist moving forward with it. And it burns so bright that we cannot sit still. We must move towards the dreams that are for us. And we must do it for ourselves.

There is a focus on the Self throughout these next 18 months, and a healing of all the beliefs, wounding, patterns, and outside noise that tells us that this is a selfish, or bad thing. We all have our own path. We all have our own passions. We all have our own needs. We all have our own worlds that live within us, and dreams that call us towards them. This chapter is a reminder that your path, passions, needs, dreams, and all of who you are, is worthy of time, attention, energy and focus.
