Laura’s sep 2020 Mystical Midlife Reading
Meeting Laura feels like a divinely inspired connection. I met her during a pivotal time in my life and she helped guide me back from the brink of despair due to Late Stage Lyme Disease and deep wounds from trauma. She not only helped to save my life, she helped me find a new life and a new way of being. Laura opened my eyes to many new worlds, including the world of astrology and the North Nodes. My life began to change quickly as I discovered parts of myself I didn’t know existed. Midlife is a powerful time of self discovery and the North Nodes are a glittering North Star to follow to discover who you’re meant to be, versus who have have been told to be, in this lifetime. Working with Laura and learning about my North Node in Leo was like opening a treasure box to discover a world of unknown gifts from my soul. She’s a rare treasure bringing a grounded and centered approach to astrology. I highly recommend a one on one session with Laura, particularly at Midlife!
What is North Node Astrology?
Your North Node reveals what your soul came here to do. By midlife, the soul starts longing and pressing us to live our true purpose. At first, it whispers through intuition. Then it knocks a little louder through “coincidences” and external events. When not heard and honored, the soul’s longing can show up as health crises, marriage or work issues, or wondering “is this all there is?” If you feel a need to reinvent yourself, following North Node guidance helps you do that authentically — for you.
Unlike generic Sun Sign horoscopes, which ignore so many other aspects, following North Node guidance will always lead you in the right direction. Doors open, healing happens, relationships improve, and life gets more magical. This monthly column will help you tap into your personal North Node Mojo. When you start living your North Node purpose, we all win, because you not only begin to light up your own life. You light up the world. – Laura
Navigate September with Your North Node Reading
September 2020 energies bring a chance to rebalance some of the insanity we’ve seen on the collective stage since March. This potential to find a new balance peaks at Equinox on the 22nd, but the whole month brings supportive energies towards that end.
The month begins with a Full Moon in Pisces at 1:22 a.m. Eastern US time on September 2. Collectively, we can use this time to focus on the bigger cosmic and spiritual picture — that which transcends polarization. A week later, Mars goes Retrograde in Aries and will remain Rx in Aries until November 13. Fire energies will still run high, but perhaps a bit less so. Instead of charging full speed ahead, take time to reassess your goals and desires. A fire can warm and inspire or burn down your house. Choose wisely how you use the Fire Element.
Jupiter turns Direct in Capricorn on September 12, allowing for more optimism and expansion. Jupiter has one more season in conservative Capricorn. Though frustrating, this journey forces us to ground our big ideas and philosophies into the tangible, real world. The New Moon in Virgo on September 17th amplifies this Earth energy. This New Moon makes a harmonious trine with Saturn in Capricorn, bringing a cooler head to some of the wild, fiery emotions since the Leo New Moon in August. As within, so without. This is a chance to hit reset — an earthy, grounded New Moon.
September finishes with Saturn turning Direct at 1:11 a.m. Eastern time on the 29th. This is Saturn’s final pass through Capricorn until he re-enters Aquarius in December. We can best use this final stretch of Saturn in his home sign to improve structures, and ensure strong foundations for whatever new paradigms begin at the end of 2020 and beyond.
How this sky weather affects you will vary, depending on your entire natal chart, but your North Node Horoscope transcends monthly sky events. That’s because your North Node reveals what your soul came here to do. By midlife, the soul starts longing and pressing us to live our true purpose. At first, it whispers through intuition. Then it knocks a little louder through “coincidences” and external events. When not heard and honored, the soul’s longing can show up as health crises, marriage or work issues, or wondering “is this all there is?” If you feel a need to reinvent yourself, following North Node guidance helps you do that authentically — for you.
You can find your North Node sign here which is usually different than your Sun sign. (If you’re right on a cusp, consider both options, or book a reading for more clarity.)
Laura’s Sep 2020 Midlife North Node Readings
ARIES NORTH NODE: Righteous anger rarely feels comfortable for Aries North Node natives, but sometimes it’s the right response. Get in touch with your inner warrior, realizing that some things are worth defending and some are worth fighting for. You have the ability to soothe others’ grief, but you need to make sure you stay strong in your own truth and focus. Use discernment about which causes to support, or not. Don’t let anyone pressure or coerce your compliance. You have natural diplomacy, which means you can bridge gaps that others have trouble crossing. Use this skill to forge new solutions, rather than going along just to get along. Yours is an innovative sign of leadership. If you don’t like what you see in the world, consider stepping up in a bigger way. Teach a class, start your own business, or run for public office. Mars in his home sign empowers you for the rest of 2020 — granting extra verve and practical solutions to problems. You can triumph over indecision and codependence. Say affirmations that begin with “I am.” Then act as if.
TAURUS NORTH NODE: If money or other resources feel tight, add more gratitude to the mix. You cannot worry and feel grateful at the same time, so count your blessings. List at least five blessings every time a worry sneaks in. You’ll gradually shift from old patterns of feast or famine into a steady supply of Earth Element Essentials. Home, health, security, money, body, beauty, food: these are themes for Taurus North Node natives. You’re innately spiritual, able to delve into the deeper mysteries of life, and you have a larger capacity than most to face the Shadow. As more revelations hit collective consciousness, you’re able to shine a light in very dark places. You’re no Pollyanna, but you know how it feels to rise from the ashes. Tend your own garden — metaphorical and in the “real” world. When you putter around the physical realm, you open pathways for others to live more grounded and harmonious lives. By focusing on your own step by step process, you bring Spirit into material form. You lift the mundane into a more transcendent place, because everything’s connected. Small things matter a whole lot. Sometimes less is more.
GEMINI NORTH NODE: Whenever you feel stuck, trapped or blindfolded, say, “I wonder what other options are available?” Gemini North Node natives ALWAYS have other options, once you train yourself to expect them. Awaken from the nightmare of an either/or fixed reality. Part of your life lesson involves paradox and trickster wisdom. When you adopt a playful attitude instead of a fearful one, you find true abundance. There’s no lack in a Gemini North Node Universe — only a perception of “not enough.” Practice opening to opportunities that ride in out of nowhere. Say “yes” to the feeling of freedom without getting too hung up on the form it takes. Yours is a sign of flexibility and dexterity. You don’t just make lemonade from lemons: yours will be some of the sweetest and most interesting lemonade ever tried. You can also use lemons to exfoliate and lighten tough elbow skin, or freshen your garbage disposal with the rinds. Get creative on all levels. A fabulous life giggles its way towards you, wanting to express through you in myriad ways. The best is yet to come … and then there’ll be another best, and another. Roll with the changes, Gemini: you’ll be glad you did.
CANCER NORTH NODE: Continue focusing on building a quality home and future for yourself and those you love. Cancer North Node natives have innate talents for assessing situations and knowing how to navigate when difficulties present themselves. Your challenge is less about knowing what to do and more about how you do it. Come from your heart more than your head. When things challenge you, that Capricorn South Node tends to dominate. You mean well, but sometimes you come across as uncaring. Make sure you preface any constructive criticism of others with acknowledgment of what they are doing right. You’ve got much tougher skin than most of those around you. A great resource for Cancer North Node natives is “The Five Love Languages.” Learn your own love language, so you know how best to nurture yourself, but also take time to learn the love languages of those around you. Much gets lost in translation, and knowing how each person can most naturally receive love makes you better at expressing it with less effort. Speaking their love language makes it much easier to get along and get things done.
LEO NORTH NODE: On September 22, Equinox balances light and dark. While Leo North Node natives usually fare well following their passions, a little temperance may serve you well this month. There’s so much fire energy right now that you might need the occasional pause to make sure you feel authentic. Your sign’s meant to shine bright, but you want to share your warmth and light, not start a 5-alarm fire. Watch for signs of burnout or burning the candle at both ends. Your revolutionary Aquarius South Node would keep going until you’ve “saved” every last underdog, but Leo North Node natives need to remember that the Highest Good of All also includes your beautiful, radiant self. You need to do you, regardless of what anyone else says, thinks or expects. If you feel frazzled, zapped, or upside down, you need a nap! Take an at home spa day. Nourish your mane. Practice positive self-affirmations and you will naturally find your own inner authority. You don’t need to work so hard, Leo: for you, play is powerful!
VIRGO NORTH NODE: September offers a chance to separate the wheat from the chaff. Your Pisces South Node resists this process, but it’s so good for Virgo North Node natives. You need to open your eyes and use that Mercury ruled intellect to decide what stays and what goes. The Sun moves through your sign for much of September, so take advantage of extra light and insights. An alternative ruler of Virgo is Vesta, the vestal virgin, keeper of the sacred flame. The original meaning of virgin/Virgo meant “complete unto oneself.” Just as Vesta tends the flame, so you can benefit from daily practices or rituals that ground you while still honoring your spiritual side. Yoga and Tai Chi are excellent choices for you, as is walking in nature. Just remember that shorter, daily practice counts more than longer but infrequent forays. Make sure you bring your daydreams down to earth, too. You have so much to offer the world, such inspiration! Pie on the table offers more value than pie in the sky.
LIBRA NORTH NODE: Venus rules your North Node sign, and this Goddess of Love, Money and the Arts encourages you to find the beauty in every situation. Retreat for some R&R if you feel frazzled or obsessed with forward movement. Mars and Chiron continue stirring up Aries South Node issues — old wounds and a perceived need to charge ahead on your own. Your greatest strength comes through cooperation and partnership. Your destiny arrives when you seek balance and moderation in all areas. Ponder the Prayer of Saint Francis, an excellent model for Libra North Node natives:
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope; …
Find the whole prayer here.
On September 22, the Sun enters Libra, bringing Fall or Spring Equinox, depending on your hemisphere. This is a perfect day to reset your inner scales and begin anew.
SCORPIO NORTH NODE: All the deep diving and karmic reckoning you’ve been doing is paying off. Focus on balance as we approach Equinox — a moment of equal night and day. True justice involves more than surface appearances and 3D worlds details. Sometimes you need to plumb the depths in order to find your own peace and understanding. September 2020 is a good month for negotiations — legal and otherwise. Don’t settle for the same old, same old status quo, unless it feels right to you. Energies of change are stirring, and the positive side of Scorpio’s death and rebirth theme is a chance for healing and regeneration. Allow yourself to let go of any limiting beliefs, especially thinking that because “it has always been this way,” that it will remain so. Profound change is on offer. Watch for help and/or inspiration from someone younger than you. Sometimes support arrives in unlikely ways. You’re right to value loyalty, but do expand your receptors for new friends. If you’ve recently lost some important relationships, ask to find and recognize the more authentic upgrades. For Scorpio North Node natives, loss opens space for something more deeply satisfying.
SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: All the action in fellow Fire sign Aries continues its support and positive energy for Sag North Node natives. September 2020 brings a focus on healing, regeneration and community. Ships you’ve waited for a long time are starting to come to port. Ask your guides to make sure you recognize and receive the signs and blessings. By staying true to inner guidance, you align with the most positive opportunities and outcomes available. As we approach Equinox — Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and Spring in the Southern Hemisphere — remember to count your blessings. Yes, the global situation brings challenges, but it also helps you rise to the occasion, sharing inspiration and wisdom with those less fortunate. Never feel guilty or ashamed for experiencing miracles. Your North Node sign is ruled by Jupiter, known as “The Great Benefic.” When you look for and expect miracles, you find them, and your vibration lifts the world. Go ahead and free yourself to thrive.
CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: September 2020 looks good for finances and pursuing your desires. Take advantage of this Fall with Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto all still in your North Node sign. As you continue upgrading structures in your life, you’ll arrive at a new set point. Wait to see which plans bear fruit, but trust that good things are coming. If you see buds or the fruit is growing but not yet ripe, practice patience, and keep going. Get your affairs in order — not to prepare for the end, but to give yourself the best possible foundation from which to grow and thrive. Capricorn North Node natives sometimes feel slow to arrive. That’s OK. Better to do things right than to discover cracks in the foundation later on. You need to keep moving in the direction of power and authority, but you don’t need to rush. Life will move you like a moving walkway, as long as you keep taking steps in the right direction. The Ace up your sleeve is knowing when to say no, unapologetically. You don’t have time for codependence. Good boundaries bring success.
AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: Your word for September is “non-attachment.” Whenever you cling to “my way or the highway,” that leads to misery. Step back. Retreat and focus on your breathing. Get back to basics. Once you feel calm and centered, ask for a solution in the Highest Good of All. This automatically includes you, too, but your cup only overflows when you align with higher level Awareness. You need to create space for those Uranian lightning bolts of inspiration. Ideas, friends and innovations come to you when you get out of the way. Spend some time this month assessing how your ideas about relationships might restrict or inhibit how satisfied you feel. Aquarius is a non-traditional sign, so allow yourself to explore unusual relationships. Some friendships transcend all boxes. Pay less attention to the form, and more attention to the function. What’s really happening here? What higher purpose might these connections serve?
PISCES NORTH NODE: Focus on opportunities this month. You can use the “open door/closed door” policy to sense which ones to take. If the door opens with just a touch, consider that a “yes.” If you need to knock and knock and bang your head against a door, then it’s a “no” or a “not yet.” Ground yourself with repetitive physical tasks that encourage you to transcend your monkey mind. Color mandalas, knit a prayer shawl, practice restorative yoga. Spend extra time in child’s pose and shavasana. If you don’t know what those are, September would be a great month to take a yoga class. If you can’t get to one in person, no worries! DVD’s, YouTube and mP3’s allow you to bliss out in your own sanctuary. Remember to “Let go and let God.” You’ll feel most satisfied by situations that unfold in magical ways, full of synchronicity and Grace. Expect miracles. They are all around you, waiting to be revealed in the Fullness of Time. Find ways to take the edge off the harsher realities presenting right now. You’ll have a much more positive influence over your environment when you relax!
