What the North Node in Aries means for every sign
Below are horoscopes for the North Node in Aries and South Node in Libra cycle, from July 17, 2023 to January 11, 2025.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Destiny calling! The fateful lunar North Node in Aries returns for the first time since 2004 to 2006. After giving your financial health an 18-month checkup in Taurus, this significant astrological point energizes your sign and lays the groundwork for some very you-centric new endeavors. If you can tune in, you might feel like the world is humming at YOUR frequency. But don’t stop there! This is your call-to-action from the universe. It’s time to step into your authority and lead with confidence.
On the other side of your chart, the North Node’s polar opposite, the South Node, is in Libra and your relationship realm. All your close connections will be infused with a shot of expansiveness and hopefulness, which is no mean feat during these crazy times. Challenge yourself to catch those moments when you lapse into fear, doubt or limiting beliefs and flip the script. During this nodal journey (until January 11, 2025), you could do a hard reset of your operating systems and set off on a kismet-kissed new path.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
When the lunar nodes change signs every couple years, it’s an important passage, especially when your sign is directly affected! The destiny-driven North Node left Taurus (where it was since January 18, 2022) and, because it moves backward, entered Aries and your introspective twelfth house on July 17, 2023.
Across your chart is the equally impactful South Node, which entered Libra and your sixth house of work and service, and health and fitness. You’ve shouldered some burdens and hopefully are coming away with some grand prize lessons. In so many ways, it’s made you stronger, plus you have the bonus gift of knowing you’ve paid off some major karmic debts.
Until January 11, 2025, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to reflect on what you’ve learned and how you’ve grown, and mull over your next major move in the world. While you may not be able to jump into your plans immediately, you CAN gain important clarity and get any necessary training so that when all restrictions are lifted, you can hit the ground running. Make a point of taking extra-good care of your health—physically, mentally and spiritually!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Hoping to find your dream team? You have plenty of chances until January 2025. On July 17, 2023, the karmic lunar North Node left Taurus and your internal twelfth house to blaze a trail in Aries and your eleventh house of collaboration and innovation. If you work with a collective, this could bring your chance to show people what you’re capable of, namely, keeping your finger on the pulse of the future. Use your organizational gifts not to reign with a heavy hand but to inspire and support your community.
On the other side of your chart, the equally impactful (and kismet-kissed) South Node moves through Libra and your fifth house of creativity, passion and fame. Make art for art’s sake, but also reflect on how you can use your gifts to motivate others. The more authentically playful you can be, the more likely others will be to fall in with whatever you’re making, doing or offering.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Wanted: Compassionate leaders who understand how to work with people on every level—including the spiritual and emotional realms. And there’s no sign better than yours for that role as the karmic lunar North Node in Aries highlights your tenth house of professional ambition and success. Until January 11, 2025, you will be challenged to lose some of that Cancerian modesty and make it your business to emphasize your business!
This cycle only comes around every 18.5 years, so you want to max out every ounce of the lift it can bring. But to reach a certain milestone, you need to know where you’re headed. Focus on your top three career goals, whether they involve a position, salary or vision of the good you can do in the world. People may be watching you for clues for their own lives, so you want to be a model of integrity. Across your chart, the equally impactful South Node beams into your domestic center. Situations may come up with family members and your inner circle, and it will be imperative that you handle them directly AND diplomatically.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
If work or professional initiatives have taken the lion’s share of your energy and attention for the past couple years, you can exhale and prepare to expand in exciting new ways during the North Node in Aries cycle. True, it won’t be “business as usual,” but is that what you wanted anyway? The lunar North Node left Taurus and your professional sector on July 17, 2023, and relocated to Aries and your adventurous and philosophical ninth house.
This destiny-tinged 18-month transit stimulates world travel and global growth, so it’s anyone’s guess where your royal paws will be planted. What’s safe to say is that your horizons will expand, even if you never leave your time zone. You can widen your metaphorical viewfinder with ongoing study, spiritual pursuits and developing an idea for your own business. Across your chart, the equally karmic South Node beams into Libra and your communication and local activity HQ. When you can articulate your soul’s mission statement, reach out to like-minded folks and see where you can take it!
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
The lunar North Node in Aries highlights your emotionally intense eighth house (and leaves your philosophical ninth house/North Node in Taurus behind). Until January 11, 2025, this potent period can dish up some karmically-tinged interactions that deepen interpersonal connections and spiritual pursuits and facilitate personal transformation.
But, as you know better than anyone, there’s no skipping steps! If you truly want to get closer to someone, you have to lay bare your own desires. The kind of bonding you crave requires vulnerability, especially if this is (or could potentially be) a sexual relationship. Trust is key, and if you’re not sure about your chosen person, test the potential with a few soulful revelations. Little by little, you could (both) gain the confidence to drop your guard and embrace the kind of intimacy that leads to sultry AND spiritual interactions.
Across your chart, the equally impactful South Node is in Libra, where it will activate your money zone. The next 18 months are your time to re-stabilize things financially so you can build a secure relationship from a grounded place.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
That buzzing noise you’re hearing? Don’t leave it on “Unread,” Libra—it could be your guides sending you an S.O.S. text! The lunar North Node in Aries is sailing on an 18-month cruise through your house of committed relationships. Are you currently involved with someone, whether a spouse, an online hopeful or a promising situationship? Until January 11, 2025, you’ll have repeated opportunities to find, develop or improve on a special dynamic duo.
The North Node in Aries transit can intensify your feelings, making you eager to take the plunge or give something untested a serious go. This can be your romantic interest, a writing or performing partner or a professional associate. But whoever it is, there’s some weight behind the connection—that feeling of fatefulness.
On the other side of your chart, the equally karmic South Node is in YOUR sign and ego-centered first house, nudging you to do more self-reflection. Perhaps you can finally stop playing the old scripts on how you view yourself and your place in this world? Fun it is not, but the lightness and relief you’ll feel when you succeed in revamping your self-identity will be worth all the pain and struggle—and then some! Shed that skin, Libra!
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
When the lunar nodes change signs every couple of years, it marks a milestone—especially when your sign is directly affected. The karmic South Node exited Scorpio on July 17, 2023 (where it was since January 18, 2022) and, because it moves backward, entered Libra and your introspective twelfth house for its 18-month stay.
Across the chart is the even more impactful North Node in Aries, your sixth house of work and service, and health and fitness. You’ve probably learned some tough lessons and have sensed—and maybe joked aloud—that you’ve been paying some heavy karmic debts. At the very least, you’ve grown spiritually. These next 18 months will help you simplify areas that have gotten overly complex or out of control. Think in terms of getting your house—and your body, mind, spirit and finances—in order. But you won’t be successful going at it with a no-nonsense attitude.
With the South Node in your spiritual twelfth house, the best way to break old habits and shed limiting beliefs about money and power is to simply observe how you think on a daily basis. Mindfulness is the key to making magic happen.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Are you ready to stop working so hard and start playing again? You’re in luck! With the North Node in Aries for 18 months, you’ll get a burst of cosmic inspiration to get back to the fine art of dressing up, dancing, creating and circulating. The destiny-dusted lunar North Node pulled up stakes in your hard-working sixth house on July 17, 2023, and sashayed into Aries and your fifth house of passion and creativity. Acknowledge all the professional efforts and service you’ve been providing since January 18, 2022, and then, make like a Sagittarius and let your hair down.
Across the zodiac wheel, the heavy South Node leaves Scorpio and moves on to Libra and your innovative, community-focused eleventh house. You’re coming out of hiding, Archer. Not merely so you can be seen but rather to become energetically connected to the world again. While the Nodes were in Taurus and Scorpio, many Archers struggled with health issues or simply felt a lack of energy. This dark night of the soul is lifting, so keep forging ahead with your healing processes with the North Node in Aries. This may inform your future work as you help others work through similar challenges.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Settle down, Capricorn, and we mean that in the best possible way. The kismet-kissed lunar North Node in Aries highlights your domestic fourth house until January 11, 2025! This significant astrological event hasn’t visited this chart sector since 2006, and during this 18-month cycle, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make key changes to your living situation. Or maybe you’ll FINALLY be able to enjoy your home sweet home, hosting guests or setting up your space in a way that suits 2023 you. Family will play a bigger role in your life and, with the North Node in Aries, you could reconcile with a relative or forge a stronger-than-ever connection to someone who shares your DNA.
On the other side of your chart, the lunar South Node shifted into Libra and your career corner. Get ready for your professional path to alter course—bearing in mind that you’re also co-creating THIS! For a change, work may NOT be your No. 1 priority, but you’re a Capricorn so it won’t bump down further than number two. One thing you might want to focus on is making your work environment feel more like a caring and supportive home base. If you’re going to spend the lion’s share of your hours there, you might as well be comfortable!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Whatever you’re pitching, Aquarius, the world is interested! With the North Node in Aries and your articulate third house until January 11, 2025, you’ll have no problem expressing yourself. This 18-month cycle, which hasn’t happened in your communication center since 2004 to 2006, can do wonders for how you think and communicate. As a naturally idealistic sign, when you get fully behind something, that thing is hard to resist. You might be elected to promote a company or important message—or even could become the spokesperson for a meaningful movement.
Whether this is for Brand Aquarius or a larger organization, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to showcase your skills and take them to the next level, either on a national platform or something of your own, like a podcast. Bear in mind that the other side of the North Node is the South Node, which entered Libra for this 18-month cycle. It can spark karmic connections with people around the world, as well as an exciting entrepreneurial venture of your own.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
When you’re inspired, Pisces, no one has to twist your fins to get you moving along on the mission! The universe support your efforts in a big, bold way with the North Node in Aries. On July 17, 2023, the moon’s North Node left Taurus and your expressive third house. It will reside in your second house of finances and security until January 11, 2025! Even though the global economy is in flux, things WILL begin to return to normal one day, and if you get nimble and pivot for these changing times, you will find creative ways to raise your bottom line.
True, there may be dues to pay until your ship North Node in Aries ship comes in. But if you can ride the winds of change, you could come out earning—and saving—more than before. No one is calling this a good thing, but there are silver linings, and your resourceful sign is just the type to find a few.
Across your chart, the lunar South Node swung into Libra and your eighth house of shared resources. Look beyond the usual suspects to see who the perfect collaborator for a joint venture might be. Perhaps the answer to your economic puzzle is to find your missing puzzle piece and put your resources together. Regardless, during the 18 months of the North Node in Aries cycle, you’re poised to raise your financial IQ and increase your equity. Just find the happy medium between playing it safe and taking a gamble!
