North Node in Cancer: Instructive Energy for Inner Comfort

North Node: Cancer

The Lunar Nodes are not planets, but astrological points in the sky – to be precise, the Moon’s north and Souths are the points where the Moon’s orbit intersects the ecliptic, which is the circle the Sun appears to trace through the sky each year.

In astrology, the North Node and South Node are very spiritually significant. The South Node represents your karma – that which you have already experienced and absorbed now, and in past lives. The North Node represents the destiny which is yet to come. The Lunar Nodes are always directly opposite one another, as our past – and what we do or do not learn from it – is inevitably linked to our future.

Your North Node in Cancer Horoscope


North Node in Cancer for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)

The North Node is transiting your family zone, with the South Node in your career zone. For you, Aries, the message is clear: it’s time to work on your family relationships rather than your status. Your tribe may be feeling resentful or angry about lost time; this is rather unfair, as you have, after all, been working in order to give them a better life. Don’t fight the unfairness, however. Accept that from your loved ones’ point of view, you haven’t been around enough. Spend time at home and don’t try too hard. You don’t need to make grand gestures or pack every waking minute of time with them with something exciting; you just need to be fully present in the moment. This will enhance your own peace of mind, as your loved ones relax around you.

North Node in Cancer for a Taurus ( Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)

This time round, Taurus, the North Node is transiting your communication and intellect zone, while the South Node transits your philosophical zone. Here we can see a conflict between received wisdom through the ages (your karma) versus new ideas and fresh knowledge you’re acquiring now (your destiny). During this astrological transit, you may need to free yourself from traditional thinking. Be controversial, be provocative and don’t be afraid to say the things others dare not say. You’ll find the comfort and reassurance you seek by speaking from the heart; don’t allow yourself to be censored and most definitely do not censor yourself. Work to free yourself from the idea that things have always been done this way.

North Node in Cancer for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21 – June20)

For you, Gemini, the North Node transits your money zone, while the South Node transits your zone of debt, sexuality and depth psychology. However, it’s not as simple as saying you should spend less time worrying about money and more time getting intimate with your lover! This astrological transit is actually about empowering your destiny by learning how little you truly need to survive. Enhance your intimate relationship by all means, but also re-think what you truly value in life. The more importance you attach to material things right now, the more complex your destiny becomes. Simplify or downsize, at least psychologically. When you rely only on your own inner strength, you’re powerful.

North Node in Cancer for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)

This is a tricky Lunar Node transit for you, Cancer, with the North Node in your identity zone and the South Node in your relationship zone. Effectively, your relationships appear to be stuck in the past in some way. Perhaps you have already found your soul mate and you know you have shared many past lives together; perhaps this is all new to you. Either way, this transit reveals that you have some work to do on the strength of your own identity, because you are at risk of being swallowed up as part of a pair. Work on feeling secure in your own skin and stop trying to change simply in order to please someone else. Those who love you the most will want to love the authentic you; you don’t need to pretend to be something you’re not.

North Node in Cancer for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22 – August 21)

The North Node is in your spiritual zone, Leo, suggesting that this transit is very important to your inner growth. The South Node, meanwhile, is in the work zone of your horoscope chart. The karma you carry from having worked so hard in a previous lifetime (or indeed thus far in this one!) is heavy, and it’s preventing you from embracing anything which isn’t practical or necessary for survival. This astrological transit is here to open a door to the sacred, the mystical and the divine, taking you away from the drudgery of everyday life. Don’t be afraid to explore your spirituality like never before, because that is where you will find comfort and reassurance right now.

North Node in Cancer for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22 – September 21)

For you, Virgo, the North Node transits your social and community zone, so to work toward your true destiny, you’re going to need to engage more fully with others. The South Node is currently in your pleasure zone, which is very self-centered, and focused exclusively on what makes you feel good. It’s this quite selfish element of your karma which needs work right now, and you can release that by giving back to your community in some way. To do this, look beyond your current circle of friends, and seek a new tribe, one which is more in tune with your own spiritual knowledge. It’s a great time to get actively involved in charity or community work. There you will find peace of mind from knowing that you’re making a difference.

North Node in Cancer for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22 – October 22)

The North Node is in your career and status zone, Libra, while the South Node transits your family and domestic zone. Astrologically, this suggests that you’ve been playing it safe for a while, sticking to your metaphorical home turf instead of pushing yourself to the limits of your comfort zone and beyond. In order to move forward with your destiny now, you should address your fears head on. It may sound counter-intuitive, but by forcing yourself into the spotlight and out of your safe place, you’ll gain much peace of mind and reassurance – because you’ll prove something to yourself. If you can face down a crisis now, you can do it whenever you need. Don’t miss this chance to test your mettle.

North Node in Cancer for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)

You know far more than you’re letting on, huh Scorpio? The North Node is in your philosophy zone right now, while the South Node is in your intellect zone. You’ve learned a lot on your journey through life, but you’ve kept it close to your chest. Now, in order to progress towards your destiny, it’s important that you start to share it, to teach it, to put it out there for the good of others. That can be a scary thing to do. You may wonder where the inner comfort and reassurance I spoke about comes into this: It’s simple – you’ll find internal strength by speaking out about your authentic experiences. Sharing your knowledge will make you stronger.

North Node in Cancer for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)

With the North Node in your zone of deep psychology, this could be an interesting period for you, Sagittarius! The South Node is in your emotional security zone and that’s the key to understanding what’s going on here. You’ve accumulated a lot of emotional security, but it’s time to let it go. This transit is about feeling and embracing fear, especially fear of the unknown. In order to avoid being afraid, you’ve tried to stay in control, but your spiritual growth depends upon your understanding what it’s like to not be in control – and being okay with that. Work on allowing life to unfurl around you instead of seeking to impose your will.

North Node in Cancer for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 18)

You’re a very self-sufficient zodiac sign, Capricorn – sometimes to a fault. With the North Node now in your interpersonal zone and the South Node in your identity zone and your own horoscope sign, it seems that you’ve exhausted the benefits of being so independent. What’s needed now is a greater interplay with others. Not necessarily only in a romantic sense, Capricorn, but a general increase in interaction with the human race! Even with your sweetheart and your friends, you’ve been distant for a while. Open up your heart now and let people back in. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

North Node in Cancer for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19 – February 17)

The North Node is currently in your zone of service, Aquarius, while the South Node represents your intensely spiritual karma, currently transiting your zone of sacrifice. Essentially, this signifies that you’ve been away – mentally at least – on a spiritual guilt trip for too long now. Your challenge during this transit is to reintegrate your spiritual values into your everyday life. You don’t need to be on a retreat to live a spiritually meaningful life. Find ways of bringing your values and instincts into your everyday routines. Being able to live this kind of integrated life is what will bring you the greatest comfort just now.

North Node in Cancer for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)

You’ve given so much, Pisces, do you really have all that much left to give? With the North Node now in your fun zone, it’s time to seek comfort in your hobbies, your personal interests and your own creativity. The South Node in your community zone tells us that you’re at a point in life where you’ve tried so hard to care for others – and the world – that you’ve neglected your own mental health. In order to move towards your healthful destiny, it’s vital now that you relax, rest and re-energize by doing more of whatever makes you smile. Only by recharging yourself can you return to your ultimate purpose, which is to be of service to others.
