Collage for the Nodes in Aries and Libra

Read your horoscope for the North Node in Aries and the South Node in Libra

A New Season of Catch and Release

As the nodes of the Moon sweep through Aries and Libra from July 17th, 2023 – January 11th, 2025, our patterns of catch and release, or hunger and shedding, will ripple through two new areas of our lives. 

The lunar nodes are two points in space calculated by the positions of the Sun and Moon in relation to Earth. These points are exactly opposite each other, which is why eclipses happen every six months — when New and Full Moons take place near the North or South Node.

Mythologically, the North Node represents the hungry head of a dragon, bringing a ravenous appetite to the part of the life it touches. The South Node, symbolized by the dragon’s tail, ushers forth release, letting go, and purification. 

With the North Node in Aries for the next 18 months, we will see an increase in personal ambition, striving, and focus on the self. By contrast, the South Node in Libra will help us release relationship patterns and beauty conventions that have passed their best-by date. Like the snake swallowing its own tail, the lunar nodes create a feedback loop: even as we shed our most limiting people-pleasing tendencies, we remember that no person is an island. Ideally, our intrapersonal relationships will also support our trail-blazing. And the connections that blow out the torch of our inner sovereignty? Thank you, next! 

For more on what you need to know about the lunar nodes in Aries and Libra, we’ve got a primer for you right here.

Aries & Aries Rising

North Node in Aries

With the North Node in Aries, it’s a bit like being handed a flamethrower to light the candles of a birthday cake. But this is your party and you’ve earned the right to a little main-character energy. Whether it’s a tattoo that tells a deeply personal story, striking out for the first time as an entrepreneur, or getting in those self-advocacy gains — dare to be your own muse. 

Even so, this sudden hunger for personal growth, self-expression, and blazing your own trail could become consuming. After every stop in the magical mystery tour of You, just make sure you check in with your body. You’ve got 18 months to carve out your wild path through life — so pace yourself. 

Certain relationships may need to ride side-car as you chase your personal sunsets. Part of reclaiming your power is calling “BS” on the myth of the self-made person, so extend gratitude to the people who have been cheering you on this whole time.

South Node in Libra

As your quest of self-discovery rolls out its yellow brick road, certain friends and beloveds may not be willing to venture into this enchanted wood with you. Or they’ve made it clear they’ll keep a jar of your favorite tinned peaches in the fridge for when you return. 

In fact, you may be at a point where your partnerships run reliably in the background — like an unfussy succulent garden. The friendships where you can both resurface from your soul-searching to exchange memes or unwind with a trashy reality show. Such connections are sacred, so hold them close.

And if an outdated version of a relationship needs to be composted, use this time to unravel patterns of codependency and people-pleasing. Practice saying “no” even when it makes your stomach churn. For every path that diverges in the woods of your connection, strengthen your vows and reaffirm your commitment. 

And remember that your roots entangle deep within the earth, even when you’re taking different paths toward the Sun.

North Node in Aries

As the North Node blazes through your private chambers, it’s your inner realms and solo projects that steer the next 18 months — and help you uncover hidden gold. Whether it’s a room of your own to write your memoirs, a sabbatical from work to hold space for your healing, or hand-sewing your own black-out curtains for some epic naps, do what you can to honor this righteous need for rest. 

After two years of tireless personal striving, your body and psyche need time to process the changes. Before you unplug from the societal grid altogether, know that these interventions can be subtle too. Even an hour of your day safeguarded from the pings of notifications can make all the difference. 

In a society run on instantaneous reactions and cheap dopamine, it takes courage to go within. But as soon as you realize there’s more terrain to conquer in your psyche than space on this earth, you’ll wonder why you didn’t start this adventure sooner.

South Node in Libra

As your passion for hitting the pillows heats up, it’s back to basics in the practices, rituals, and daily routines that support your health and well-being. You may be more of a starter than a follow-througher when it comes to health fads and gym memberships — but now you’re ready to graduate from essential oil dabbler to full-on tincture witch.  

Whether it’s a cold plunge after the sauna, a bedtime cup of mugwort tea, or a daily roster of breathwork, it’s time to whittle down your self-care to a few rituals that you’re actually enticed to carve into habits. Then you’ll start to experience the metaphysical wonders of repetition. 

In your daily toil, work habits may need readjustment as burning the midnight oil is suddenly no longer an option. Ignoring your body’s signals makes you more vulnerable to burnout, so schedule in your recuperation time and reframe it as part of your working day. 

The more you can get down with delegation, the more your productivity will soar.

Gemini glyph

Gemini & Gemini Rising

North Node in Aries

After some hardcore cocooning, you’re ready to fashion a ladder out of bed sheets and bust out of your Rapunzel tower. For the next 18th months, you’ll be on the hunt for the clubs, think tanks, collectives, and group chats that share your pioneering spirit and hunger to get things done. 


Just don’t be surprised if your three musketeers multiply into 300 or 3000: you have a way of rallying folks to your most fiery causes. 

As a righteous new crew of rebels, punks, and rabble-rousers carry you into a whole new world, make sure your group-think radar is well-honed too. Trust your gut in all collective commitments and remember to pace yourself. 

As you close out a major creative effort, or your passion for certain hobbies starts to dwindle, it’s within your art’s collectives, conferences, festivals, and co-working spaces that you’ll find the muses lurking again — the ones looking impossibly cool shooting billiards. 

Even as your social circles bring life’s plot twists, a little bit of drama is all fodder for your next masterpiece.

South Node in Libra

As you find your birds of a feather on the fringes of polite society, it’s more than likely your delights are shifting too. Whether your friend’s polycule is holding auditions, or you’ve ditched the dating apps in favor of orchid-rearing, what tickles your fancy is a bit of a mystery now. 

And that’s half the fun. 

You might also be hitting a stage in life where falling asleep in your armchair to a podcast is your idea of a perfect Friday night. Or you’ve emerged from your creator’s cave to hit the social circuit again. The twists and turns of your pleasure principle may be part of what’s driving your evolving social scene, so don’t be afraid to bust out of your usual lane.

Just remember that quality trumps quantity in life’s pleasures now. Ditch the cheap virtual dopamine rushes for the slower thrills of learning to draw, knit, or simply be comfortable with boredom again.

Cancer glyph

Cancer & Cancer Rising

North Node in Aries

The liminal space between one professional door closing and another opening is where you find your edge now. Sudden windfalls, pivots, and industry shake-ups ensure that your public life is anything but dull during the next 18 months. In fact, the eclipse trick of turning it off and on again could be part of the story, so dare to go dark before your next public launch. 

Nothing like a vanishing act to dial up the hype, after all. 

The key to making the most of the next two years is finding that sweet spot where fear is a driving force rather than a hindrance. Whether you’ve bought a condemned barn to transform it into a roller derby rink, or you’ve quit your day job to go full time with tarot reading, fortune favors the brave. And it saves its most sparkly opportunities for those willing to flow with sudden changes.

South Node in Libra

If a sudden promotion or a brave entrepreneurial path has you focusing on professional growth, it’s natural that your home fires may receive less tending. Whether you’re relocating for a job opportunity, switching back to a downtown office, or selling the family farm, do your best to embrace the space you’re clearing. 

If you’re between places or situations that feel like home, take root in other ways: work from your favorite table at the neighborhood cafe. Call the BFF that feels like family. Pick wildflowers for your traveling ancestral altar. 

You have the unique superpower of making home wherever you want it to be. It’s okay if that sometimes changes.

Leo glyph

Leo & Leo Rising

North Node in Aries

Some calls to adventure whisper, but others come with their own shot of adrenaline. This time it’s the latter. From studying the life cycles of carnivorous plants to planning a grand tour of your bucket list items — it’s all about the learning quests that expand your world. 

Just remember to pace yourself. Give yourself time to fully integrate your downloads before wrangling your next horizon.

As you burn through outmoded beliefs at lightning speed, a prescribed path through these mysteries might not exist. So make it as you go. Wherever institutionalized knowledge feels inaccessible, there’s an opportunity to spearhead your own workshop, Discord, or cafe meetings with other seekers. 

Allow your instincts, hunches, and lust for life to guide this quest.

South Node in Libra

In the rhythms and exchanges of your daily life, less is more for the next 18 months. Whether you’re digitizing your unruly Notes app poems, or bringing more discipline to your virtual realms, streamlining your everyday hits of information will create space for more profound contemplation. 

So dare to pull a vanishing act from the social media carousel and uncover the hidden gems in your own backyard: the calligraphy of snail trails on glossy leaves, or the market that sells the best house-made tomato sauce. The more that you embrace consistency in your day-to-day, the easier it will be to sink into your morning tarot or banter with the bodega cat. 

And with more breathing space in your schedule, you’ll discover a flow and magic you never knew existed before.

Virgo glyph

Virgo & Virgo Rising

North Node in Aries

It takes courage to pool resources with another. To ask for help is an act of bravery. And entrusting your bounty to a wealth-building initiative is often a leap of faith. Fortunately, you’ve got guts to spare when it comes to burning a path through the scarcity narratives that block the gates of abundance. 

Whether you’re crowd-sourcing funds to get a project off the ground, or buying your first home with someone else, your financial and energetic bonds with others will magnetize your attention over the next 18 months.

Just remember to trust your spidey senses if a collaborator is rushing you to the dotted line or plowing through your boundaries. What is meant for you will never feel like a hard sell. The true gold of the North Node in Aries will be revealed as you learn to advocate for yourself through all intrepid journeys of merging.

South Node in Libra

While you grow the money you share with others, you’ll also get tactical about the resources you have at hand. Whether you’re pooling money into a mortgage, or taking out a loan to jumpstart your pottery business, it’s time to get down to brass tacks. Calling in your future abundance means running a tighter money ship in the here and now. 

On a practical level, you’re also ready to launch the spring clean of all spring cleans. Anything that sparks “meh”, rather than joy: into the donation pile it goes. Maybe a flea market’s worth of knick-knacks is weighing you down. Or your loosey-goosey accounting system needs a glow-up. Now’s the time to say out with the old and in with the fresh budgeting spreadsheet. 

Be thrifty, but make it fashion, for the next 18 months.

Libra glyph

Libra & Libra Rising

North Node in Aries

The North Node in Aries brings fiery BFFs, business partners, art collaborators, and beloveds to your door. To be honest, a little relational shakeup might be exactly what you need, so lean into the connections that jumpstart your lust for life. Or even slightly exasperate you. 

It’s often our most irritating competitors that push us deeper into a journey of self-discovery. Every hero needs its baddie after all, so dare to see the value in your most prickly connections too. If you’ve truly met your match, let them inspire even more ambitious goals and dreams. 

And if a committed relationship has been playing it by the script, the next year and a half will have you lighting each other’s fires. Whether you discover a passion for acro-yoga with your beloved, or you frontier an edgy podcast with your bestie — all of your brushes with the other will have a galvanizing effect over the next 18 months.

South Node in Libra

As you perfect a secret handshake with your chosen co-conspirator, you’ll feel less self-focused for a time. Your personal projects, sense of vitality, and identity are entering cleanse mode. This process may not always feel comfortable, but it’s a necessary part of your leveling up. 

If former pastimes or wardrobe choices no longer bring you joy — remix them. Host a clothing swap with friends and walk away in another person’s zebra-print jumpsuit. Try out that activity you’ve been quietly curious about, but never gathered your courage to try, like pole fitness, or cold water therapy. 

Or press pause on new activities altogether. The South Node in Libra may make you feel depleted at times. Carving out time for rest will be all the more crucial for the next 18 months. Go ahead: nap with abandon.

Scorpio glyph

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

North Node in Aries

For the next 18 months, you’re piling pokers into the fire, as the glow of a hard day’s work becomes strangely addicting. As you initiate beast mode in your daily responsibilities or wellness routines, remember to check in with your energy levels too. Now is not the time to count on fumes to get you home. 

Part of life’s balancing act now is honoring the monumental work you feel called to while allowing your system to pump the brakes. Think: two power naps for every work sprint. And if you’re the type that actually has to schedule in your rest time, do so. Your ambition means nothing if it’s pushing your body into the ground. 

This is also the time to wrangle the contracts, clients, training modules, and side hustles that propel you out of your usual work grooves. If you’re pioneering a new field altogether, a spirit of “build and they will come” will get you far.

South Node in Libra

As you jump timelines into a new story, your inner world will be the site of release. And maybe some necessary pruning. It can be easy now for self-soothing to slip into escapism, or for solo work to slide into isolation. The trick is to know when to follow your breadcrumbs back out of your psyche’s enchanted woods. 

In fact, your dreams and downloads can be alchemized into inspiration. Whether you’re keeping notes for your screenplay, or repainting your bedroom, you’re naturally giving energy to behind-the-scenes realms over the next 18 months. Just make sure that what you devote yourself to has the potential to replenish your reserves in return.

Sagittarius glyph

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

North Node in Aries

As your creative sap rises, you might not know where to apply all this surging inspiration. What a lovely problem to have. For now, let your pleasure principle guide you where it may. Embrace life’s earthly delights with a child’s wonder — and lack of judgment. 

Sink your hands into your sculptor’s clay. Play endless hide-and-seek with a little one in your life. Take up felting, just because. You’ll have 18 months to find the hobbies, passion projects, crafting covens, and jam sessions that will channel your creative fire, so embrace a little bit of trial and error. The stumbles are half the fun.

Just know that the goalposts of “the good life” will probably keep shifting. Your extra energy for fun right now doesn’t actually have to “do” something — it can just be a ready laugh or a new twinkle in your eyes.

South Node in Libra

As you throw your energy into fun, children, or your future magnum opus, the next 18 months are a time when you’re happy to get by with a tighter crew. The friendships that can run on memes, inside jokes, and even a certain degree of autopilot. 

As you declutter your network and get choosier with your commitments, you might find yourself aligning with folks that bring out your artistic side. 

If you’ve been the one to close out the party in the past, it’s okay to crave a bit more substance in your group get-togethers now. Before you astral project out of yet another Sunday brunch, practice declining the invitations that don’t feel aligned. Then put out feelers for the covens, workshops, or collectives that support your creative renaissance. 

Make art, instead of idle chit-chat.

Capricorn glyph

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

North Node in Aries

Over the coming 18 months, you’re ready to break new ground in your quest of belonging. As you streamline your public offerings, you have more energy to pour into your foundations — or the freedom to uproot yourself altogether. 

The question of where your home fires burn, and who is granted a VIP pass into your inner circle, will be the driving force behind life’s twists and turns. Whether that means knocking down a non-supporting wall, embarking on an ancestral pilgrimage, or moving into an anarchist commune, only time will tell. 

And if you’re happy to root deeper where you are, sweaty DIY projects, bonfires on the beach with your beloveds, and brave inner child work will usher in a fiery renewal.

South Node in Libra

Boredom, restlessness, and melancholy are three signs that you’ve taken something as far as it can go. For the next 18 months, shedding roles you’ve outgrown in public offerings will bring relief. This process may not always be easy, but it’s a necessary step to recalibrating your sense of life’s purpose. 

Your next mission may be as dramatic as leaving your office job to embrace homesteading half-feral emus. Or you may be advocating for a four-day workweek, or taking time out to support a loved one. You may even be passing the torch of your responsibilities to another person or team as your company starts to run itself. 

If you’re in the midst of a vocational metamorphosis, be honest with yourself about what labor you can put down or delegate. Part of this story could be finding more harmony, flow, and connection within your position — but first, you need your privacy to wiggle out of the power suits that feel too tight.

Aquarius glyph

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

North Node in Aries

Now your curiosity has its own Red Bull wings. Over the next 18 months, the realm of local exchange propels you into new adventures. Flitting between cafes, dog parks, and boutique pop-ups will stoke your lust for life. 

Just make sure to schedule in some beats in between: quiet moments with your altar, your tarot cards, or the counsel of your coffee grounds. You’ll need time to absorb the intel before shooting after your next curiosity. And yes, we see you cheating the system by listening to YouTube lectures on triple speed. 

Whether it’s through audio memos, your Notes app, or an old-school spiral-ring notepad, you’ll want to catch fresh insights while they’re hot off the presses. Who knows: your neighborhood field notes could become fodder for your next podcast, zine, or Substack.

South Node in Libra

In the journey of every great seeker, there comes a time when we must diverge from our teachers and blaze our own path. The shelter of an academic institution, spiritual circle, or mentor relationship takes courage to leave — but now it’s time to trust yourself to distill these teachings, add to them, or share knowledge in your own way. 

As well, your spiritual pursuits, learning goals, or long-range plans may need to be scaled down to fit a tighter timeline or budget over the next 18 months. These limitations could actually reshape your project into exciting new forms. Embrace the creativity that arises when you’re painted into a corner.

If a jet-setting approach to your bucket list items has left you a bit jaded, a hyper-local web of hedge witches, botanists, cafe philosophers, and neighborhood salons could provide endless curiosities and rabbit holes — in a way that feels more connected (and sustainable) than ever.

Pisces glyph

Pisces & Pisces Rising

North Node in Aries

Whether it’s a bonfire of material abundance, or an inner glow from feeling spiritually resourced, the next 18 months will unravel a new story about security, money, and unapologetic self-investment. 

If there’s an inner troll blocking the gate to the gardens of wealth, or the hydra heads of a scarcity narrative, swing your sword through these scripts. And burn their ends for good measure.

Now you have the courage to finally bring your wares to the farmer’s market. Or the audacity to monetize your secret whistling talent. Double-dare yourself to launch a website of your offerings — however niche they seem.

South Node in Libra

As you feather your own financial nest, you might be choosier about where you put your golden eggs. If certain wealth-building initiatives no longer feel aligned, start clearing space for the ones that reflect your ideals and values. 

For the next 18 months, plot twists arrive in the form of your most intimate dynamics of support. Practice discernment with any potential collaborators and business partners. A flowing and harmonious connection is worth its weight in gold now, especially if you’re in the midst of your own healing journey or grief release. 

Any energy vamps promising you the world — practice showing them the door.

With every leap in abundance there’s a learning curve, so embrace the support of money witches, accountants, and financial advisors. As the stockpile of your inner abundance grows, it’s natural to find yourself in more dynamics of support. Just remember to be honest with yourself about how much you can give.

Clear guidelines and boundaries are necessary ingredients to any fruitful exchange.
