Laura’s Feb 2020 Mystical 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?
2020 promises to transform the way we view the world around us and the world inside ourselves. Things can feel uncertain, scary and exciting with so much change. Fortunately, a little known astrology placement called your North Node helps you to find and live your own True North.
With the Sun in dreamy, artistic Pisces, this month’s North Node Horoscopes features color as a way to tune into your soul’s deepest desires and direction. Each color holds a specific energy and feeling. Tapping into that frequency will help you align with hidden gifts and opportunities.
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
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 February 2020 Midlife North Node Readings
ARIES NORTH NODE: Wear more red, and wear it well! Lipstick, purse, accessories — it doesn’t matter which you choose, but a splash of red brings confidence to Aries North Node natives. Wear something red as a reminder to take risks and live out loud. Wishy washy is not the way for you. Go for the bold, and you’ll find inner harmony, even if you think you can’t. When that still small voice asks, “What about me?” that is not a rhetorical question! You deserve an answer, followed by action steps. Not only do you deserve a place at the top of your priorities, but the deepest part of your soul needs to know that your needs matter. A lot. Practice speaking up, because you’re a natural diplomat. Win-win situations involve you winning, too.
TAURUS NORTH NODE: Focus on green this month. Wear green, and “go green,” using more natural cleaners, fabrics and scents. Fresh cut flowers and houseplants might seem like luxuries, but you need beauty and nature in order to thrive. Walk in the woods, visit a greenhouse, or bring more fresh foods into your kitchen. Feel free to splurge on a massage or nourishing facial — anything that makes you feel more grounded in your life and body. Just remember to cultivate healthy, nurturing, daily habits. Consistent routines might seem dull, but they work better for you than an all or nothing approach. Slow and steady wins your race, so you might as well enjoy the journey. Wear comfortable, well made clothes and shoes, and allow this attitude to seep into other areas of life. Embrace “quality” and “long term planning.” If you don’t already have one, consider finding a good financial advisor.
GEMINI NORTH NODE: Yellow’s the new gold, Gemini. When you find sunshine in short supply, wear your own. A splash of yellow or citrine jewelry will lift your spirits and activate your sparkle. “Look, shiny thing!” is no joke for Gemini North Node natives. You need distractions and life’s little detours. A meandering path benefits you. Indeed, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” Relax! Only when you fixate on a single idea or outcome, do you get stuck. That doesn’t mean you won’t find happiness — but life might offer something much better than you know to want. Sometimes the grass really is greener. Adopt the mantra, “If not this, then something better,” and allow yourself to experience a sense of childlike wonder. A return to innocence and trust means you don’t know it all, and that’s OK. As Tolkien said, “Not all who wander are lost.”
CANCER NORTH NODE: White and silver moonbeams shimmer through you. Whether hair, jewelry or clothing, get your silver on. This month, pay special attention to your décolleté. Nurturing takes top priority. You don’t need to prove yourself to anyone anymore. You are enough. Let that sink in. You. Are. Enough. Know that you will wax and wane, just like your sign’s Ruler, the Moon. It’s OK to feel. Don’t try to hide your emotions. Their tide flows in and out. Avoiding emotions brings tsunamis instead of gentle waves. Listen more than you talk this month. Drop into more of a heartfelt space than a directing space. Speaking of space, what little shifts would make things feel just right in your home or office? Embrace those shifts. Who feels like family to you, and how can you spend more quality time together? In the end, those moments and relationships will feel more important than all your accolades.
LEO NORTH NODE: You’re golden. Shoes, highlights, rings or pendants: let this royal color elevate your mood and signify a heart of gold. Give your mane some extra care this month. Try a hair mask, trim or new style. A little pampering now builds confidence later. Like it or not, Leo North Node natives draw the spotlight. Part of you might feel superficial for dressing to impress, but if it gets you out there, then it’s on path for you. Resist the urge to tone things down or blend into the crowd. You’re no wallflower. You’re a natural leader, and it’s OK to play the Queen. You lead best when you follow your heart. In a battle between head and heart, choose heart, because yours is true. Remember to play, Leo. When you roar with laughter, the Universe brings golden opportunities.
VIRGO NORTH NODE: Earth tones ground you in the here and now. Greens, browns — even the orange of autumn leaves — bring soulful reminders of your deep connection to Mother Earth. When you don’t feel this connection, take a walk in the woods or dig your toes in sand. Focus on health and healing this month. If you’ve been putting off that dental exam or physical, get it scheduled! Procrastination breeds anxiety. You’ll feel better when you get things done. You might find exercise easier if it involves a spiritual component, like yoga, tai chi or walking meditation. Find something you enjoy. With a Virgo North Node, you’re learning discernment, so pay attention to what you do and do not like — in exercise and in life. It’s OK to have preferences! You just need to follow through on them by taking real world action.
LIBRA NORTH NODE: Think pink! Or baby blue. Either color will soften you and your outlook. Intensity is overrated. When in doubt, cultivate gentle diplomacy. Practice seeing both sides of any issue and take time to weigh decisions before charging ahead. Libra North Node natives benefit by putting other people’s needs ahead of your own. Just like tithing increases your bottom line, praying for and helping others tends to improve your own life. Don’t do it for this reason, but giving to others makes you a blessing magnet. This month, focus on harmony. How can you balance competing agendas? Which compromises would bring your loved ones joy? Random acts of kindness open your heart, make your eyes sparkle and your complexion glow. Let your love shine, and so will you.
SCORPIO NORTH NODE: Black is always in style for you. Whether you rock an LBD or combat boots, the darkest color adds mystique. Dive deep, Scorpio. Tune into passion, desire, discretion and the Mystery with a capital M. Purge anything that feels too restrictive, old or outworn. It’s OK to reinvent yourself. Focus on exfoliation this month: shed your physical and metaphysical skin. Your sign benefits from periods of death and rebirth, so don’t be afraid to let go. If you find yourself attracted to the “darker” aspects of life, allow yourself to go there. Of all the North Node signs, you reap the most from Shadow Work. You heal and regenerate by acknowledging and then reclaiming the wounded, scared, and scary parts of yourself. No judgment. It is what it is. If you don’t like it, you can change. Taking a good, hard look in the mirror activates your inner alchemy.
SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Any shade of purple uplifts the adventurous sign of philosophy, religion, and higher education. Pack your purple bags for Spring Break, or apply plum eyeliner around the windows to your soul. Sag North Node natives do well honoring their Third Eye, too. This seat of intuition sits between your eyebrows. If you have trouble tapping into intuition this month, literally tap your forehead for inspiration. Pay attention to your dreams and uncanny “coincidences.” Your guardian angels send messages through repeat numbers, daydreams, names and words. Each morning, take a moment to align with your Higher Self. Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, then ask for guidance. You will receive it. You’re a natural preacher and teacher, so don’t feel afraid to share your wisdom. Your soul smiles whenever your own experience helps a fellow traveler. On the shared journey of life, you’ll inspire many.
CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: Gray and brown help you focus on strong, practical steps to your success. “God helps those who help themselves,” so get to work, Cappy. You are the stability you seek, even if you don’t see how just yet. Prayer will help you feel more confident, but you still need to show up. Neutral colors remind you to detach from emotional extremes. It’s so easy to get swallowed by the trauma-drama all around and inside of you. Resist that sinkhole. You’re stronger and more resilient than you think you are. This month, focus on your teeth, skin and bones. Remineralize to revitalize. Add nourishing foods and structures to your life. If something or someone takes too much time and energy to digest, upgrade your input. You have agency. Use it. You’ll stand taller when you remember your spine.
AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: Electric blue — color of lightning — is your signature shade. Splashes of blue connect you to heavenly waters and bolts of inspiration. The element of surprise works for you in fashion and in life. Aquarius is the “cosmic weirdo” but also a great humanitarian. You do best dancing to the beat of your own drum while serving the Highest Good of All. Quite a paradox, but you’ve got this! Let eccentricity lead the way. This month, focus on products and services that align with higher values. Vote with your pocketbook by supporting ethical companies, people, and causes you care about. You thrive when your personal choices honor a larger community or vision. Check on a friend you haven’t heard from in awhile. Yes, social media and texting count. Of all the North Node signs, you do best with internet and technology. When in doubt, innovate. You’ll find new ways to use old tools.
PISCES NORTH NODE: Sea green and aquamarine evoke dreamy, spiritual vibes, the perfect antidote to worry. It’s all perfect, when you remember to tune in to Universal Love. Pisces North Node natives harmonize with beauty, unconditional compassion and a mystical sense of Divine Flow. If you catch yourself sweating the small stuff, take a deep breath through your nose and exhale it with a sigh. Just. Let. Go. The less you fixate on outcomes, the more magical they become. With the Sun in your North Node sign this month, you’ll feel better with extra water. Feel deep hydration: drink herbal tea, luxuriate in the bath, and moisturize those rough spots. Relax your body to get out of your head. Restorative yoga, walks on the beach, soothing meditation CDs: allow any stress to melt. You, of all people, benefit from 20 minutes each day doing “nothing.” Record your dreams and daydreams. They offer powerful healing and support.
