This is something that most astrologers are missing!
Between November 2010 and January 2011, North Node conjuncts Pluto and triggers the cardinal T-square, while at a same time Mars join the pair and later a Full Moon (and lunar eclipse) on the solstice day. This is a major event, as big as last August's cardinal climax.
The implications of this are huge. Watch out for significant karmic/fate developments around this time: remember November 2010 to January 2011. This applies both to our personal lives and to world events. The first weeks of December will be highly charged. I can't remember of a Christmas time with so much intense astrological configurations.
Some major economic, political or military event, this November or December?
In global affairs, I don't know exactly what this means, but watch for some powerful, potentially destructive events, because Pluto is involved, and with global implications, because this occurs in Capricorn. Two possibilities are another economic meltdown or a new war. Alternatively there might be a big scandal, or some other sort of crises. It may involve banks, governments, corporations or the military, because this the node conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. At worse, this can be a serious economic crises, popular revolts, a war or a terrorist attack. A major natural disaster is another probable scenario. These are just possibilities and maybe might will happen, but still I think at least one of these things will make major headlines this November or December. Remember, the windows of possibility occurs during the whole period, starting now and until January, although Mars also joins the pair in the first two weeks of December, adding intensity and dynamics.
Those who have personal planets or angles, in the last degrees of mutable signs and early degrees of cardinal signs could feel this as a particularly intense, challenging and dynamic period!
Watch out those born between 18 and 27 December, 18-27 June, 18-27 March and 18-27 September. Pay attention to what happened during the last weeks of July to determine what this might be about.
I can give you examples of previous time when the nodes conjuncted a cardinal alignment. Between spring 1968 and summer 1969 (south node conjuncts Uranus in Libra), in 1991 (conjunction north node with Uranus, Neptune and Saturn in Capricorn), in early 1931 (conjunction north node and Uranus in Aries). Other interesting examples: WWII started when south node conjuncted Saturn, and ended when north node conjuncted Saturn in Cancer, Pluto was conjuncted south node in Cancer in the Russian Revolution of 1917, south node conjuncted Uranus and Pluto in Aries in the revolutions of 1847 and 1848, north node conjuncted Saturn and opposed Pluto during the 911 attacks.
A future post will discuss the cycle of the north/south nodes in detail.
