CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #181 -- The Natal Sun-Lunar North Node Opposition
December 21, 2019
The ongoing powerful Capricorn stellium (more than 3 planets/bodies) we spoke about last month, will be active till late January.
The conservative and elitarian trends will start to vanish as soon as Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0° Aquarius around December 20, 2020 and yet more dramatically when Pluto leaves Capricorn and enters freedom-loving and liberating Aquarius in 2023.
In our continuing series about solar oppositions, we discuss our empirical research results about the Sun opposite the Lunar North Node.
A loving end of the year

In general and on a mundane level, events are likely to happen around January 3, 9-10, 16, 23 and/or 30.
During this month of January, there are no powerful stationing planetary midpoints to mention.
Generally speaking, January 2, 3, 4 and 18 are "less lucky" days.
Try not to initiate any major projects on one of these dark, unfortunate, chaotic and empty days (no proposals, no marriages, no changes of residence,...) because things may not go as planned or wished.
What we wrote in our December 2019 forecasts, still applies this month because till late January 2020 different planets and bodies will build an ongoing stellium in that zodiac sign.
Let's repeat it again...
During this period there will be a Capricorn "overload", denoting that Aquarians are going to face some hardship, health issues, and/or enter a treacherous period.
Indeed, Aquarians and Aquarius Ascendants may be held back, enter a puzzling period, feel not too well and may not always know how to alter the situations and restrictions.
Actually, this is a period of preparation and reevaluation.
Leos and Geminis will face great challenges and transformative changes while the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn itself) too are heading for a bumpy road.
If you are Taurus or Virgo, you may be better off because you will be able to handle things more fluently.
ALL Capricorns will face a milestone in life in 2020 that triggers profound and powerful personal changes (either in matters of health, relationships, career, family etc.) because the stellium will be active in their solar return horoscope that lasts a year.
More generally speaking, as long as the Capricorn stellium lasts, lots of Capricorn themes will enter the picture, either on a mundane level or on a personal one.
This configuration is especially powerful (and important) because Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, is also in that zodiac sign and thus disposes of all planets and bodies therein.
Saturn is in a waning conjunction with transformative, forceful and intense Pluto denoting that all Capricorn issues and themes are heading towards profound transformations that may be intense and emotionally also.
Expect a purge of some kind.
Capricorn is a builder, a climber and (re)construction work is likely to boom during this stellium.
Everything related to buildings, houses, and real estate will be in the spotlight.
The zodiac sign Capricorn represents the corporate and banking world, the governments, the higher management and leaders of state and they will try to impose their rules and goals upon society.
There can be an increase in regulations, privacy issues, setting boundaries and building more walls (literally or figuratively).
Capricorn is a very compartmentalized sign, dividing everything in a hierarchy, classes and ranks, order and structures and hence, this whole Capricorn stellium period will put the elite, aristocrats and higher-ups in the spotlight (for good or ill).
We expect a lot of higher-ups and celebrities as well as elderly to leave this world, be dismissed or step back.
This period is marked by austerity measures, increased conservative reflexes that freedom-loving people will not like at all.
Following astrometeorology, a lot of planets in the earth element, especially in Capricorn (representing the outer surface and "mask" of the earth), suggest an increased risk of earth-related disasters (like earthquakes, landslides, mining disasters, sinkholes etc.).
Also, Capricorn is a harsh zodiac sign astrometeorologically speaking.
This means that this stellium (till late January 2020) will bring a very hot summer (southern hemisphere) and a harsh winter (northern hemisphere).
Mercury and Jupiter meet at 7° Capricorn around January 2, suggesting a big disappointment and expectations that turn out otherwise.
Issues with religion and beliefs will show that you have to let go old points of view.
Numerous beliefs are mere constructions to keep you dependent and you should try to understand that what is perceived as "issues" are just means or tools to help you awaken and gain more insight.
After all, it's all part of your own development.
Around January 3, Mercury at 7° Capricorn opposes the mean Lunar North Node while Mars enters propagating Sagittarius.
Mars is in a forceful position and does not want to be contradicted.
It is so convinced of its own truth that it is prepared to fight for it, whatever it takes and often in an exaggerated and ballooning way.
The Mercury-Lunar Node aspect is a very talkative one and may be misleading.
Not all information is reliable.
At times, information is taken out of context or taken from the past and already outdated.
Usually, Mercury-Lunar Node aspects mark very busy, noisy and even hectic times.
Jupiter at 7° Capricorn opposes the mean North Node of the Moon around January 7 and is still disappointed.
Some of you may feel bitter and a bit pessimistic.
Beware of legal issues.
Around January 8, there are clouds in the sky.
Around January 10, the Lunar Eclipse at 20° Cancer opposes Mercury at 20° Capricorn while Uranus stations at 2° Taurus and turns direct.
This powerful Lunar Eclipse is likely to bring quite some awareness and may point to some decision-making time.
20° Cancer is often involved in separations that bring a change for the better like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly.
Family, the home and the motherly caring principles are what keeps you busy for the moment.
Stationing Uranus indicates a breakthrough and sudden advancements, in whatever fields (on a mundane level this station is often related to progress in the fields of space, technology and/or IT).
Uranus always wants us to break away from the past and change course.
Expect emergencies, nervous tension and sudden developments that result in (sudden) changes of course.
In some instances, the current astrological configurations also point to surgery, disputes and anger and/or tense protests or manifestations that may get out of hand.
Following astrometeorology, stationing Uranus coincides with heavy wind, storm and thunder here and there.
Around January 11, there are clouds in the sky.
Mercury, Saturn and Pluto conjoin at 22° Capricorn around January 12, suggesting and even reinforcing the facing of some hard facts.
There are tough issues to manage or tackle and you prefer to remain silent.
Lots of research or investigation is necessary and you want to go to the bottom of things.
A stark realism is noticeable and some of you may be down, depressed or even in a mourning mood.
Interestingly, this degree area is often indicative of wildfires or big fires.
The day after, around January 13, the Sun too conjoins Saturn and Pluto at 22° Capricorn, while Venus enters Pisces.
This adds to a somber atmosphere (and overcast weather alike).
Venus is at a dissolving and watery degree while the Sun faces separation.
These configurations point to hardship but also tremendous zeal to overcome obstacles and pressure or force, even though it will need hard and tenacious work.
If you are born around January 13, February 11, February 26, March 13, April 12-13, May 13, May 29, June 14, July 15, August 15-16, August 31, September 16, October 16, November 15, November 30 or December 15, this Sun, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto stellium will likely bring investigative work, research, deep study, hard work physically, enforced changes and/or separation, a threat of loss and/or tenacious determination into your life mid January.
On a mundane level, this highly important and generational conjunction is told to mark a new beginning and start of a financial cycle that is especially related to taxes and debt.
Hence, it's often told to bring some kind of debt reset and/or financial reset, one way or the other.
Any major Saturn-Pluto is also found in times of increased bankruptcies.
Fortunately, this conjunction marks the start of a new (waxing) cycle that is all about reconstruction, rebuilding, rewriting the rules and regulations, ...
Following astrometeorology, this aspect suggests fierce wind, even storm and overcast weather.
Around January 16, Mercury enters airy Aquarius, focusing on free speech, groups and humanitarian interests.
Mercury at 2° Aquarius squares its dispositor Uranus at 2° Taurus around January 18, resulting in sudden changes of course and U-turns.
This waning square tends to indicate misunderstandings, too much nervous tension resulting in miscommunication or distorted communication.
This is a very nervous, abrupt and restless aspect indeed.
Don't expect to sleep that well.
Following astrometeorology, most Mercury-Uranus aspects indicate fierce wind and even storm.
Also, air traffic issues or air crashes my happen during Mercury's stay in airy Aquarius.
The Sun enters Aquarius around January 20 as well, adding to some upheaval and restlessness.
Humanitarian interests prevail.
Around January 21, there are clouds in the sky.
Around January 23, the Sun at 2° Aquarius squares its dispositor Uranus at 2° Taurus, suggesting some protests and fighting against dependence.
This is an erratic and tense aspect that may present some inconsistencies and/or erratic behavior.
Around January 26-27, Venus at 16° Pisces squares Mars at 16° Sagittarius while conjoining Neptune at the same moment.
The day after, around January 28, Mars at 16° Sagittarius squares Neptune at 16° Pisces as well.
This Venus-Mars-Neptune configuration indicates, among others, infidelity, secret love, love's sorrow, unfulfilled wishes or expectations, dissatisfaction, infections, temporary impotence, being seduced and/or misled, lustful desires that are difficult to satisfy, being taken advantage of and/or erotic musings.
If you are born around January 7, January 21-22, February 5-6, March 7, April 6-7, April 22, May 7, May 23, June 7, July 9, July 24-25, August 9, September 9, October 10, October 25, November 9 or December 9, these influences are likely to affect you most.

What's New on Our Web Site?We added the 2020 free monthly horoscopes page. We also added an article about the Mars-Neptune connections, which we published in a previous Love Letter.
There were minor editions and link updates on different pages.
The Natal Sun-Lunar North Node OppositionIn this article we present our empirical research results pertaining to the natal Sun-Lunar North Node oppositions.
Thanks to the Swiss Astrodatabank we were able to research the natal Sun-Lunar North Node oppositions of many people.
We used a small orb of 3° so to get the essence of the aspect without interference of possible other aspects.
As usual, our research is divided into male and female horoscopes.
Natal Sun-Lunar North Node oppositions in female charts
There were only few natal charts with this opposition and there were not found a lot similarities, often because of insufficient categories filled out in the Astrodatabank.
On average, lots of women are widowed and/or divorced (Susanne Hoeg, Suzanne Jurkowski, Jeanne Marchal).
On average, they have at least 2 kids (Cherry Boone O'Neill, Suzanne Jurkowski, Susanne Hoeg).
They are often victimized as well (Susanne Hoeg, Chandra Levy, Amy Carnevale).
