I was just looking at my progressed chart and I discovered something interesting. In about two months, my progressed moon will make a conjunction with my north node.

I don’t really pay that much attention to progressions or the north node because I typically practice character-based astrology. Predictive astrology is something else altogether. For that reason, I had no idea what the upcoming event would bring, so I Googled “progressed moon conjunct north node.”

The first site I clicked on had a rather succinct description of what to expect. The author of Astrofix wrote this about her own experience with the event:

“My progressed Moon in Scorpio is conjunct my progressed North Node, in the 2nd house. I’ve been looking forward to this Moon/North Node conjunction for a while. I am so curious to see what it brings. If the North Node shows the direction you should head in, and the progressed Moon shows your overall mood and focus for a few years, right now I should be feeling completely in line with what I am ‘supposed’ to be doing.”

My conjunction is a little different: my progressed moon is making a conjunction with my natal north node. Nevertheless, if I interpret it in a similar manner, I need to look at where it occurs: my eighth house.

The eighth house rules over things like legacies. If I’m reading into this correctly, I’m going to inherit millions and millions of dollars after my new spouse dies suspiciously, not long after our wedding.

Anyway, it’s nice to know that I’m on the right track and that I’m doing what I am ‘supposed’ to be doing. But if any of my astrologer friends have another interpretation of this rare configuration in my progressed chart, I would be happy to know what you think. Leave me a note in the comments or on one of my social media pages.


    • To be honest, the nodal transits seemed to be more noticeable. I’d like to believe that I got to the bottom of some of my worst impulses when the north node conjoined my natal moon. I’m starting to think that maybe too many astrologers romanticize the power of the nodal axis, ascribing power to its effect on one’s “fate.” I understand what they mean in theory, but in practice the nodal transits feel almost like background music to me.
