CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #109 -- Lunar Node Contacts in Synastry
December 21, 2013

Facebook's News Feed redesign causes a stir among businesses (like ours) that post (free) messages on this social platform or network.

What it is all about can be read under the 'Web site updates' section below.

The year comes to a close and we're heading to 2014 full speed.

January 2014 and the first half of the year are marked by two cardinal T-squares (for some astrologers that use wider orbs, the T-square may look like a Grand Square or Cross).

This planetary pattern will trigger quite some innovations and indicates progress, with some hurdles to be taken.

Because the predominant cardinal T-square (containing Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter) will be active for quite some months and because we are entering the Chinese Year of the Wood Horse from February 2014 on, we expect this planetary configuration to mark exceptional breakthroughs in the fields of technology.

It's likely this year of 2014 will mark a milestone for humanity in these fields of which we are not yet able to imagine the impact.

We are currently analyzing and writing the 2014 forecasts for the 12 zodiac signs that will be published late January 2014 on our web site.

So, stay tuned...

In this letter we elaborate on the nodal aspects in synastry to give you a better understanding of the influence of the Moon's Nodes in the chart comparison.

Lovely Season's Greetings!

Love Forecasts for January 2014

Click here to download the January 2014 calendar in pdf format.

In general, events are likely to happen around January 1, January 6, January 13, January 20 and/or January 27-28.

January 2014 is marked by two separate T-squares in cardinal signs:
  • In the first week or two, Mars will be the apex planet of a T-square in which Jupiter opposes the Sun, Mercury (and Pluto if you take wider orbs).

    This T-square is related to fortunate agreements and successful talks.

  • From the 2nd half of January on, Uranus in Aries will be the apex planet of a T-square in which Jupiter opposes Pluto (and Venus).

    This T-square is related to financial transformations and reversing a financial situation.

    It can also indicate groundbreaking innovations (that are always apparent when Jupiter and Uranus are part of any astrological configuration or pattern).
January 2014 starts intensely with a powerful perigee New Moon at 10° Capricorn on January 1.

This rare and significant lunation will not only mark the month, but the whole 1st Quarter of the year as well.

This New Moon is conjunct Pluto and about to square Mars at 12° Libra around January 2-3.

In some instances, this configuration is related to surgery and physical injuries.

It may bring intense emotional and physical experiences but may be also related to huge amounts of work and a heavy workload!

If you are born around January 1, your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday) is about a lack of drive or zest and diminution of energy.

You are losing focus and cannot unfold properly.

January 2-3 bring relief from tension and fortunate moments of bliss.

There is joyful news and you are able to take the right action or initiatives.

If you are born around January 2-3, you will feel the auspicious influences your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday) long.

Around January 2-3, the Sun at 12° Capricorn squares Mars at 12° Libra while Mercury at 15° Capricorn opposes Jupiter at 15° Cancer.

The waxing Sun-Mars square is an explosive one and shows anger that can no longer be held within.

It's an aggressive and impulsive combo resulting in irresponsible behavior.

The early January days can thus be quite violent and accident-prone with reckless behavior showing up.

The accompanying Mercury-Jupiter opposition shows errors in judgement and seeing things out of proportion.

The opposition aspect points to separation and chances are you are separated from your home or place of residence.

You may be on the move.

Around January 4-5, it's a time for tremendous optimism and you can successfully apply control to suit particular purposes.

You are able to establish new perspectives.

The Sun at 15° Capricorn opposes Jupiter at 15° Cancer around January 5.

Exaggeration may bring a reality check then.

Around January 7, Mercury and Venus conjoin at 23° Capricorn denoting enjoyable conversations and nice agreements.

Perhaps you may receive a welcome gift or a pleasing message.

Mars at 15° Libra squares Jupiter at 15° Cancer around January 8, pointing to legal issues and arrogant or overbearing behavior.

Because the aspect is waxing, corruption may come out into the open.

Don't be too blunt and try to balance your actions.

Around January 10-11, stress and nervous tension tends to increase overall when Mercury enters Aquarius and the Sun conjoins Venus at 21° Capricorn.

Because of the Sun-Venus conjunction, there is the urge to be creative.

January 13 is about a sudden change in your financial situation.

There are gains possible and a sudden change of course.

Mercury at 3° Aquarius squares the Moon's North Node at 3° Scorpio around the same day of January 13-14, resulting in a hectic and very busy time.

Not all your plans can be carried out around January 16-17 but there is a lot of anticipation and wishful thinking noticeable.

Around January 16 and during the apogee Full Moon at 25° Cancer, Venus at 18° Capricorn squares Mars at 18° Libra.

Because Venus is the dispositor of Mars, this aspect between two planets of the opposite gender and the opposite traits will bring clashes and disputes disturbing harmony and resulting in separations.

Don't go too far.

You will have to learn that there are boundaries and you will have to accept that.

The Sun enters independent Aquarius around January 20 marking a very stressful day full of tension and the desire to revolt.

If you are born around this day, your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday) is marked by stress.

January 21-22 are days of very hard work and resistance.

The Sun at 3° Aquarius squares the North Node of the Moon at 3° Scorpio around January 22-23 and shows feelings of inferiority or a low vitality.

Important persons may encounter a setback or challenging situations they are not able to cope with yet.

Indeed, January 22-26 may bring dissatisfaction with the way everything unfolds.

There is a sad and depressed mood.

A stalemate situation makes for a cynical mood the more so because around January 25, Mercury at 22° Aquarius also squares Saturn at 22° Scorpio.

There are a lot of limiting influences that prevent you from being happy.

If you are born around January 3, April 2, July 4 or October 6, you may feel these influences more prominently.

You should also take care of your health.

Between January 26-28, the astrological configurations point to watery (snowy) and stormy weather.

Jupiter at 12° Cancer opposes Pluto at 12° Capricorn around January 31 while Mercury enters Pisces, the sign of its detriment.

Religious or political convictions are strong under these aspects.

There can be a tremendous drive and desire to achieve something really BIG.

Venus stations at the same day of January 31 and turns direct at 13° Capricorn.

When Venus turns direct again, relationships with beloved ones may regain importance.

In formal Capricorn, Venus may feel more secure by proposing or hinting for a marriage.

Chances are that money affairs get resolved more easily now.

Your financial situation may be revamped.

What's New on Our Web Site?

Facebook changed their News Feed algorithm, limiting the amount of reach a single page has to 1%-2%.

In other words, posts shared from businesses (like ours) may no longer get in your News Feeds -- except when tons of people comment on the post, share or like it.

But even then, it's not sure posts will be published in your News Feed.

Many Facebook fans may and will assume we don't post anymore because they don't see any messages in their News Feed from us.

Facebook wants all businesses (like ours) to pay them 'to boost' a post so that it becomes visible in the News Feed again.

So, for every single message we want you to see in your News Feed, we will have to pay money to Facebook.

Understand that Facebook has an aggressive Business Model since they held their initial public offering (IPO) on May 18, 2012 and they have insane financial targets.

Clearly, Facebook is no longer interested in free information and they are only after the money.

That's what they have to say about the News Feed redesign: "We’re getting to a place where because more people are sharing more things, the best way to get your stuff seen if you’re a business is to pay for it."

What this means is, if we have meaningful messages and we want to freely and organically share it across Facebook, we can’t anymore unless we want to pay for it.

However, know that we are never ever going to pay Facebook anything.

Sharing information should be free -- always.

It's time to realize that we are living in a world of financial tyranny which is the major cause of corruption, blackmail, flawed scientific studies and research, betrayal and deceit etc.

The only way to stop this downward and enslaving spiral is to neglect it completely -- as if it's no part of your life -- and to not give in.

Facebook do not realize their site and pages are going to become ONE single AD page if they continue this way.

Their greed will be their downfall -- and so should be it.

What can you do to make sure you still view our posts?
  • Know that we post the same free information on our public business page on Google+.

    Currently, Google+ is still clutter-free and perhaps it's time for you (and your 'friends') to consider jumping ship.

    After all, Google has always claimed that they propagate free information.

  • If you browse the internet with Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera or Safari and still want to use Facebook, we recommend installing this totally free browser add-on named F.B. Purity.

    F.B. Purity is an anti-spam browser extension for Facebook that alters your view of Facebook to show only relevant information to you -- the way YOU want it.

    It filters out ALL the junk you don't want to see (and you decide!), leaving behind the stories and page elements you do wish to see.

    Click here to check it out.

    This browser extension does not work with Internet Explorer though (Microsoft and Facebook are hand in glove).

    We use this free browser add-on on Google Chrome flawlessly since it was created in 2009 and cannot live without it.

    Obviously, Facebook do not like people using this add-on and they are still doing everything possible to shut down the F.B. Purity page and web site.

    With over 107K fans (and growing) and a lot of Facebook objections you can't go wrong ;-)

    By the way, Facebook is trying to censor all messages related to either F.B. Purity or their new News Feed algorithms for pages...

    It's very telling, after all...

We added a 10th FAQ discussing our workflow that we follow when analyzing and delineating the free monthly and yearly forecasts.

We linked to this FAQ on all our 2013 forecast pages.

Lunar Node Contacts in Synastry

On our web site you can read some information pertaining to the Lunar Nodes (or Moon's Nodes) and their meaning in the chart comparison (synastry).

We wrote that the primary principle behind the Nodes is one of connecting.

The Nodes are a bonding factor in the horoscope and they represent a magnetic force.

Because the North Node and the South Node are always opposites, they can be compared with the magnetic North and South poles.

The North pole is energizing, the South pole is more soothing.

North pole energy spins counterclockwise and South pole magnetic energy spins clockwise.

Likewise, the Lunar Nodes act like a magnet.

The tighter other planets and points aspect the Nodes, the more noticeable the effects will be.

In the chart comparison (synastry) between two people, planetary contacts of person A to the Nodal axis of person B can be very revealing.

The closer the aspects (don't exceed 1°), the more magnetic the bond or connection -- for good or bad.

Planets or bodies at the same numerical degree as the Nodes are particularly important and powerful.

In our research, we noticed that the sesquiquadrate (aspect of 135°) is a very tragic and painful one.

When a planet or body builds such an exact sesquiquadrate, tragic events related to the planet/body of the other may happen.

Squares are stessful because they are in the middle of the magnetic forces -- pulled and pushed at the same time between both poles -- and thus in a stalemate position.

In such a position, the planet or body that squares the Nodes of the other person is an objection so that magnetic attraction is blocked.

Only other exact aspects to the Nodes can releave this tension.

Exact Nodal contacts with the Ascendant-Descendant or MC-IC axes of the other partner are particularly important but should not be overrated.

After all, the Nodes are not very fast-moving so that anyone from the same age group builds the same contact.

However, when the Nodes conjunct the relationship axis (Ascendant-Descendant axis) of the other partner, they may show a profound bond or connection, affecting both persons, in particular and most the Ascendant person.

There is a huge magnetic pull for good or bad and a very strong connection (possibly, and even likely, from a past life).

When the Nodes of person A conjunct the Nodes of person B, there is a magnetic pull also, that can be accompanied by a magnetic push.

In our database, we have not found a couple with exact conjunctions of the Nodes at the same numerical degree though which would have given us very reliable information regarding the outcome of this combo.

In theory though and if the Nodes act like magnetic poles, this may be a not so convenient combo.

It may be a discomforting magnetic attraction.

Also, it's not sure if the North Node of person A conjunct the North Node of the other partner is better or worse than the conjunction between the North Node of person A and the South Node of the other partner.

Only very exact aspects can show us the real meaning of the combinations.

In general, it's the planet or body person that brings or transports the meaning of the planet or body to the Node person.

In case the contact (especially the conjunction!) happens with the North Node, the North Node person tends to accept the meanings and significations of the planet of the other.

In case the close contact (especially the conjunction) is with the South Node, the South Node person tends to reject, restrain or has it difficult integrating the significance of the planet of the other.

South Node contacts (conjunctions) show that the South Node person lacks growth potential and may disrupt or even quit the relationship (if there are no other strong love ties noticeable).

It looks like the nodal axis reinforces the meanings of the planets of the other person that are conjunct it -- for good or bad.

Squares to the Nodes and planets or bodies that conjunct both the North and the South Node at the same time can result in very strong attractions but at the same time result in an uncomfortable push and pull making for a difficult or unpleasant bond.

Sextiles and/or trines from planets and bodies from person A to the Nodes of person B are less intense and perhaps the most comforting and enjoyable.

In conclusion, the exact Lunar Node contacts between two people bring them magnetically together and create a bond, but not always in a comfortable or pleasant way.

As always, you can't judge the cover of the puzzle by only analyzing one single piece of it in isolation.
