Welcome ashore, astro-mates!
It's a good bet you've been out surfing the high seas of the Internet and
are ready to relax for a while. If you're like me, you love to go
on line to link up with friends, learn amazing new facts, and travel to
imaginary worlds. If the signs Gemini, Sagittarius or Aquarius are
prominent in your birth chart, you especially enjoy traveling in cyberspace
as well as taking trips in person to places that interest you. (Sagittarians
and travel go together like mice and cheese!) Yet no matter what
astrological sun sign you are, you may have wished for a compass or road
map to give you direction through life. Here's some good news --
there actually is a navigation point you can follow! It's the guiding
light of your astrological chart, called your Moon's North Node.
We won't bother too much
with a technical definition here. It's enough to say that the Moon's
North Node is a point where the path of the Sun and the path of the Moon
cross each other as they travel through the sky. Therefore, the Moon's
North Node is not an actual physical planet, like Mercury or Venus, but
a point in space. Even so, many astrologers believe this energetic
point in the astrological chart holds a key to your life success and integration
-- to bringing all the parts of who you are together. Whether you
are well-acquainted with your astrological chart or are reading about astrology
for the first time, you can develop the qualities of your Moon's North
Node sign as a sure-fire way to make the most of what you've got.
To find your Moon's North
Node sign, see Table 1. You will notice that the Moon's North Node
has a somewhat irregular movement, yet usually stays in one sign for about
one and a half years. This means that people born near you are likely
to have the same Moon's North Node sign as you do. To find which
Moon's North Node sign is yours, locate your birth date in the list in
the first column. Then read across to the right to find your Node

If you have the:
Moon's North Node in Aries
You cooperate easily with
people and make an agreeable friend and companion. You like harmony
and beauty, though at times you can argue a point just for the fun of it.
You probably have talent in music, art or public relations. There
may be a flair for fashion with you, too! Watch out for a tendency
to lean on other people and their opinions more than necessary. Don't
get bogged down in bad romances. Be decisive, trust your judgment,
and be willing to go first. You are here to develop enthusiasm, break
new ground and be a pioneer in some important way. You probably hate
the thought of sports and leadership positions, but they're good for you.
Wear red, enter races, have courage. Your Glittering Prize:
On a foundation of true cooperation, you step out on your own to start
something truly new. Guess who has the Moon's North Node in Aries:
Moon's North Node in Taurus
You are a demanding person
with strong emotions. Your desire for intense experiences sometimes
causes you trouble. You sense your potential to be content and stable,
but you often find it hard to get there with your many passions.
Learn to establish inner security and discover your own values. Set
up your own bank account, get a part time job, or make your own money decisions.
You have deep insights into people and life, but need to develop steady
relationships so you can trust and share your insights with others.
You're here to develop patience and learn to appreciate the reward in simple
things. Let situations be without having to investigate, probe or
consume them. Don't get bogged down in addictive behaviors.
Nature and the outdoors are very healing for you. Guess who has the
Moon's North Node in Taurus: Matthew Fox
Moon's North Node in Gemini
You can probably stand to
improve your spelling. And I don't mean Tori Spelling. Education,
especially in practical or technical skills, is very good for you.
You have natural wisdom and can be a great teacher, yet you need to develop
the tools of communication. Reading, writing, radio, television,
telephones, the World Wide Web -- all the tried and true as well as new
and emerging technologies that enable the spreading of a message -- are
beneficial for you to learn in order to grow fully. You might be
a little "rough around the edges" as far as social skills are concerned.
Develop the social ease that will allow you to share your wisdom with others.
(It's probably a good idea to go to that after-school gathering you've
been wondering about, and say hello to someone.) You can discover
whole new worlds right in your own neighborhood. Guess who has the
Moon's North Node in Gemini: Keanu Reeves
Moon's North Node in Cancer
You take life seriously and
are often mature for your age. Your home environment in your growing
up years may have required you to be more responsible than many of your
friends. Your natural discipline will help you accomplish your own
goals when you set your mind to them. You will make a good parent
once you've learned how to be a good parent to yourself first. Comfort
yourself in positive ways, ask for help when you need it, and develop a
career that will enable you to support a family. Deep down you tend
to be impatient with yourself and consider emotions a waste of time.
Learn to define and express your feelings. Spend time with
people, especially women (since Cancer is the "mother" sign of the zodiac)
who are caring and can show you the good side of letting your feelings
show. Guess who has the Moon's North Node in Cancer: Britney
Moon's North Node in Leo
You secretly want to be a
star! But you act like a rebel or outsider. You're afraid stardom
wouldn't be fair to everyone. You do have a knack for keeping things
equal between your friends. But you also have a warm heart, a generous
spirit, and a likely love of drama, dance, music, art, or confident business
leadership. Whatever your special talent is, you'll need to step
out and express it to be content. Don't try to figure out all the
details ahead of time. People are inspired by your standing forth
and expressing joy, as much as by going along for the good of the group.
Sign up to perform in a school play or assembly. Take in the applause!
Experiment with giving speeches or trying on costumes. Focus your
energy on being creative and developing a powerful personal appearance.
Have fun! It's okay to step out and be noticed. Guess who has
the Moon's North Node in Leo: Christina Ricci
Moon's North Node in Virgo
I see you munching on a Moon-Pie
right now. Imagination and daydreams fuel your soul. You enjoy
movies, poetry, fantasy and the world of romance. Your friends may
easily tell you their problems and you are a born counselor. You
need to become more practical, focused and discriminating. Perhaps
you have been disappointed or betrayed, so that you learn to choose more
carefully next time. It's not that you deserve to be let down in
love and friendship more than anyone else, it's that you're not truly paying
attention to the relationship problems that eventually cause you heartache.
Use your dreams to make other people's lives meaningful. You may
do well creating movies, a flower delivery business, a creative accounting
business, any goal in which you combine imagination and technical skill.
Give attention to your health and personal grooming. Guess who has
the Moon's North Node in Virgo: Clare Danes
