North Node in Aquarius
or the Eleventh House
Friendship. When the dependent, sometimes cloying form of love is curtailed, The Aquarian NNs are delighted to find all kinds of people interested in many of the same things they are. The new distance developing and the mental intercourse emerging, allow growth of independence and an ability to offer freedom, without the feeling of rejection at partings. They know the coming together will always be ahead with someone. People are now being liked for who they are, and not what they can do for them. Many grow to enjoy the end of the one against another games, always being the main object of everyone's desires, and realize the pleasure of group cooperation. The demand for full and immediate attention can be relinquished. People doing their own separate things, even, but enjoying the company. No longer having to be the life of the party, they know now that life, itself, is the party. Trust. These NN people are learning abdication of the Leo will and confidence in the flow of events, leaving the sequence to circumstance, knowing things will automatically work to their benefit, especially when others are included in the reward. They are coming to accept unexpected events as natural. Wishes and the genie. Aquarius is the sign of fulfillment of wishes, and these natives are able not only to actualize these visions, but to help their fellows achieve their futuristic goals. It's interesting that the singular of "genie", the magic holder of the lamp of our desires, is "genius", a concept associated with Aquarius as well.
Intellect and brilliance. The natives with this Uranian spark are here to develop the full potential of their minds, being gifted with an exceptional intelligence and awareness, once the attachment to excessive passion and personal drama is released. In place of heated emotion and visceral entanglement, a detached perspective is developing and a pursuit of shared interests in the mental realm. The light bulb of insight is theirs to use forever when they trust their intellects and grow to love the power of the mind. They discover that these interests are far from boring and dry, people are fascinating from a slight distance, and a new kind of self-esteem is blossoming, based on self containment, observation, and objective reasoning. Genius is a possibility. Fire to air. The NN Aquarians are coming from the heat and ecstatic involvement, sometimes self-immolation of fire, to the cooler, less emotional element of air. The urge to burn everything in the path gives way to a dissemination of ideas, and an interest in the use of breath to communicate, rather that fan the flames. Credit. By far, one of the best traits of these nodal natives, is the ability to bring out the talent and creativity of others. No longer needing to grasp all the credit, they now desire gold stars for all involved in the success of endeavors, especially when they loosen the need to dominate, and wholeheartedly encourage the use of everyone's abilities. They know the best result will come from this group participation. Having already mastered the lessons of self confidence, they leap at seeing the potential in others, and want to facilitate its development.
Idealism, altruism, freedom, and evolution. Aquarian NNs are here to lead people into better political relationships with one another, whether they are formally active in government and social services or not. Their understanding of group dynamics serves this goal on any level. They know the ideal of unselfish interaction, and instinctively recognize the need for personal freedom and autonomy for all citizens. Love of people and society, and a true desire for their welfare, are the most developed of all planetary placements, in the Aquarius North Node. The Aquarius NNs are bringing their royal experience and self significance to the world, without judgement or prejudice, imparting confidence to each member of society no matter how large or small the circle. Revealing to all the solar centers within themselves.
