“So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow” – Cyndi Lauper
Did you know that inside of you lies a colorful world filled with the most beautiful, undiscovered treasures? Treasures that are more valuable than the finest gems on the planet! Ah, but treasure chests are, by their very nature, hard to find! How would you like a treasure map: a map that will guide you to find your cornucopia of riches and discover the jewels and gems that lie deep within you?
Welcome to the North Nodes. They are gifts waiting for the Modern Midlife woman. When I first learned about the North Nodes in Astrology from my dear friend, gifted Astrologer and empowerment coach, Laura Bruno, I was curious. The North Nodes hold the key to the treasures buried inside of you, of me – of us! I have to admit I was more than a bit reluctant to go there. Why? Because my North Node in Leo was the exact opposite of the life I had been living up to that point.
Change can be scary … frightening at times! We often cling to the status quo because it’s so damn familiar. Familiarity breeds comfort, even when it’s not fulfilling. The ego loves nothing more than to keep us small. It loves to squish and squeeze our infinite souls into a box, a tiny box, one that feels like a comfort zone. For our lives to change, we must change. We must leave our comfort zones. Opening our hearts and our minds to our North Nodes opens up a world of possibilities. It’s like a glittering North Star that illuminates a new path, our soul’s path. Our North Node helps us navigate our second and third acts in life.
I was a painfully shy young girl. My mother was an actress. Then, I gave birth to an actress. (Well, she had to train first but I swear she came out of the womb with a microphone!) I was the invisible one – living my life behind the scenes rather than out in the spotlight. Laura coaxed me to take a closer look at my Leo North Node. Leo, represented by the lion, is Fierce. Leo is vivacious and loves the spotlight! Leo craves attention. I ran from it. Laura shared with me what she saw inside of me that I couldn’t see. I had a blind spot when it came to envisioning my future as anything but safe and small. My Leo North Node pointed me in the direction of finding my Voice and creating a public platform for women at Midlife & Beyond!
Looking back, it’s amazing how quickly my life began to change once I learned to embrace the Fierce part of my soul’s calling. It began with baby steps as I started to foray outside of my introverted boundaries. One step led to another and before I knew it, those steps became a stairway, a stairway to heaven. I soon felt as though I was on an escalator moving rapidly toward entirely new territory. Oh, it was frightening at first. Like anything else that’s new to us. Now, it feels like second nature. Because it is. It’s our true nature. Second nature and a second act that’s much bigger and brighter than my first one.
When I began to embrace my North Node in Leo, I began to discover parts of my personality that I never knew existed. My South Node lies in Aquarius. My Aquarian nature is the Boho loving soul that wants to change this crazy world. My sun sign is a Cancer. The typical cancer is a sensitive, water loving homebody who loves to hide in her shell. What I found fascinating was that by opening up to my North Node, I was able to combine the best parts of my Aquarian nature – I could still be my bohemian self who wants to save the world, but I would now have a public platform and presence that would allow me to bring my personal mission to an entirely new level. How cool is that?
Are you ready for some Self discovery? I do believe that’s the essence of a Modern Midlife. It’s a Midlife that’s lived both inside out and outside in. Change happens on the inside before we see it on the outside. Ready to take a deep dive within to take your life in a new direction, the one of your North Star and the path of your soul’s calling?

If you’re interested in working with Laura in a bigger way to move things along more quickly, I highly encourage you to consider a private, in depth reading. Laura created this exclusive reading at an introductory price solely for my audience. Working with her on a personal level and taking a deeper dive into my North Node changed my life completely. Heck, I wouldn’t be here with you today if it weren’t for Laura. I would be stuck in my teeny tiny introverted world that completely confined me and my soul’s calling.
We hope you enjoy this month’s horoscopes. They’re absolutely delightful. Cheers Beauties … onward and upwards to your North Star and your new colorful life, one of conscious design. We weren’t meant to live in black and white. We were meant to live in technicolor. Try that on for size!
You with the sad eyes
Don’t be discouraged
Oh I realize It’s hard to take courage
In a worldfull of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small
But I see your true colors
Shining through I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow
