Eclipses, New, Full Moons North & South Nodes Accurately Predict the Future
Eclipses, lunation, and nodes are often linked together in astrology, but why do we always link them together? One of the reasons that we need to look at all of these together is that this is the best way to accurately predict patterns that may occur in the future.
The reasoning for this is that all of these are measurements that are calculated according to the orbit of the Moon while it travels around our Earth. This celestial path is known as the transiting lunation cycle, takes a month to complete, starting at the New Moon as the Sun and Moon are in the same degree of the zodiac sign.
Full Moons- Everything you need to know:
Around 14 days after a New Moon we see the Full Moon, which happens when the Sun and the Moon are 180 degree apart from each other. When the Full Moon occurs, we also need to look at our chart and see where it is occurring. Full Moons illuminate as you would expect, so where a New Moon brings a new beginning, a Full Moon usually brings something to a climax or dramatically reveals something to us. Our attention is often drawn to things as if there is a call to action. The bright light of the Full Moon always does exactly what it says; it shines a bright light into areas of our lives so that we can better address these.
What do I need to know about New Moons?
New moons are dark because we cannot see a New Moon, but they are counter-intuitively associated with fresh starts. To calculate which area of your life this is most likely to affect, you need to look at which house the new moon is falling in. An example of this might be if a New Moon fell in the Fourth House. This is a house associated with the sign of Cancer and is subsequently linked to family and maternal figures, so we might see something happening with a close family member.

Another tip is to look and see if there are any other planets in the same degree or close to the New Moon and also factor that influence in. For example, if Pluto was also in the mix then we would have to take into account Pluto’s energy and its planetary influence. If you pay attention, you will often feel a new beginning or fresh start when you look closely at the lunation cycle and the houses associated with it. Also, never forget to look at the house that Pluto rules as that house will also be lit up!
Everything you need to know about the Nodes:
Eclipses occur in cycles in relation to the Nodes of the Moon. Nodes are simply points where the orbit of the Moon intersects with the orbit of the Sun (if it was extended to its natural progression). This means that the North Node of the Moon and the South Node always lie at 180 degrees apart from each other.
Lunar nodes are considered to be very important in astrology and have been used for centuries.
The North Node often also goes by the term ‘Dragon’s Head’, making the South Node the ‘Dragon’s Tail’. If you look at the axis of the nodes on a birth chart, we can use these to make astrological predictions associated with the destiny of a person. Lunar nodes take 19 years to complete a cycle and occur when we are 19, 38, 56, and 75, so we will often notice that we have large events that shape our destiny at these times.
Lunation, eclipses, and nodes are all closely and inextricably linked to each other and we need to study them all closely to get an accurate picture of our birth charts and to make predictions. One of the best ways to get started studying the lunation, eclipses, and nodes is to pay attention to when they fall and try to note any changes that occur at these times. These can then be used to make predictions for the future. Usually, you will start to notice patterns forming which can then be applied to the future. This is essentially how astrology works, but charting patterns and then seeing how they repeat themselves. This is how we make astrological predictions, and eclipses, lunation, and nodes are a very important part of this if we want to learn to accurately predict.
What about Eclipses?
The lunation cycle of the New Moon and Full Moon is the same every month, but in some months, depending on the situation, we can find that we also have an eclipse.
Many people don’t know that ‘eclipse’ used to mean omit, abandon, or fail in ancient Greek and when it comes to a celestial eclipse we see one planet blotting out another. In the case of a solar eclipse, the Moon is placed between the Sun and the Earth so that we can’t see the light of the Sun. It is important to note however that a solar eclipse can only ever occur during a New Moon. When we have a lunar eclipse, the Earth moves between the Sun and the Moon and it casts a shadow over the Moon. As the light of the Sun can’t reach the Moon, the Moon goes dark as the shadow of the Earth passes across it.
Throughout history, eclipses have been associated with important events. One of the main focuses of an eclipse is to highlight the energy of what is being eclipsed. If this is the Moon for example, then this rules the past, our memories, our inner selves etc, so it might be that something is going to be revealed about these aspects. If the Sun is eclipsed, then this could be about our identity and what makes us tick as people, as well as our purpose in life and our goals. We also need to remember that solar eclipse happen on a New Moon, so we might have a dramatic shake-up involved with new beginnings. When it is a lunar eclipse, this happens at the Full Moon, so we might witness a shocking revelation.
In this way, we can think of a lunar or a solar eclipse as a New Moon or a Full Moon multiplied by a thousand. When we want to make predictions, then the same rules apply, but when it is eclipse season we need to realize that the energy has been ramped up. Another way to think about it is to see that the new beginning energy that we would see at a ‘normal’ New Moon will be even more dramatic when there is a Solar Eclipse and the illuminating energy of a Full Moon will also be augmented when there is a Lunar Eclipse
How long am I likely to feel the effects of these cycles?
When we look at typical lunation cycles, which run from the New Moon, to the Full Moon, and back to the New Moon again, we can see how the effects of each cycle usually only last until the next one. So a New Moon’s sensitivity lasts until the next Full Moon, and the effects of the Full Moon last until the next New Moon. Eclipses however don’t work like this and their effects usually last far longer, until the next eclipse. Usually, we can see four eclipses every year made up of two solar eclipses and two lunar eclipses, so we can time the effect of the eclipse until the next one.
The magic comes in when you learn how to fully take advantage of your new & full moon cycles!
