Each person has a zodiac sign that corresponds to a planet, metal or plant. Everything in the universe is in sympathy or discord because as above so below. Heres a list of important dates for 2023 that include eclipses, node changes, mercury retrograde and the movements of Saturn and Jupiter, among other cosmic events.
Karma Nodes in Taurus and Scorpio: Challenges and learning until July 2023
Known as the Karma Nodes, these astral points will remain in Taurus and Scorpio for a six-month cycle. Since their inception on January 18 or 19, 2022, it has been a challenging path for all especially for those native to Taurus and Scorpio, as well as those with their ascendant in these signs.
On July 17, 2023 the Lunar Nodes will finally move into the powerful cardinal signs of Aries and Libra which will initiate a period of increased growth and learning as we approach the end of the 18-month cycle.
By the end of the nodes’ transit along this axis we are likely to have learned valuable lessons about how to live with others and how to balance our “self” with that of others.
Solar and lunar eclipses of 2023: The end and the beginning of new cycles
The year 2023 will witness two solar eclipses and two lunar eclipses that will mark the end and the beginning of new cycles.
First solar eclipse of the year will take place on April 20 in Aries, with the North Node already moving into the new axis. We will continue the work we have been doing since 2022 with the first lunar eclipse of the year on May 5, 2023, on the current axis with the Moon in Scorpio and the Sun in Taurus.
The second solar eclipse of the year will occur on October 14 in Libra already overlapping the energy of the new nodes. On October 28 during the second and final lunar eclipse, the Sun will be in Scorpio and the Moon in Taurus, effectively bidding farewell to the current nodal axis.
Eclipses are powerful events that mark the end of old cycles and the beginning of new ones.
What aspects of your life are you willing to modify to gain more freedom? Do you believe in your own abilities? Do you feel in control of yourself? Will you be able to form alliances that allow you to shine? It is time to reflect and prepare for the transformative energies of the coming eclipses.
