Oh and BTW Aqua, if you can confirm that for me, that'd be awesome! My birthday is June 4, 1968 at 0541 (am) in Phoenix, AZ. Thanks in advance.

RE: North and South nodes?
Hey thanks Aqua! I'll have to check out those books, sounds like a great read. Funny about the asteroids, particularly Chiron.
Chiron is in Aries for me which would make sense. A psychic once told me I used to be some kind of warrior in a past life (I think he said Samurai); I have also literally lost an entire career in this lifetime for aggressive, impulsive, rash behavior.
Tfire, this chart actually has it labelled "south node," but oddly, it doesn't list the north node. It lists the ascending (?) node, Lilith (I don't know what this is either), Ascendant, and Midheaven, and it also lists Chiron, Ceres, Pallas, Juno, Vesta, Fortune, and the South node.
North and South nodes?
I just read an article on here about North and South nodes. The article cited Oprah as an example, and it made perfect sense in that context.
How does one determine where the nodes are on a chart? And could somebody help me with mine? My old chart says my south node is in Aries. I don't know how it arrived at that conclusion, but assuming that's right, that means my north node is in Libra? I'm not sure how to interpret that. I'm supposed to aspire to be Libra-like... in what way?
Also, how do the asteroids affect us? My chart has asteroids shown too.
RE: WHAT is going on?
Hi again guys. Seriously. Does anyone have an ephemeris (sp?)? The last time I felt this way was a few years ago. My hormones were all screwed up. I feel just like that. I am SOOOO BLUE tonight. And wired. And edgy. And tired. And depressed.
Is this the "Saturn-Pluto square" thingy? How often does it happen??
I read my November horoscope and it's talking about fear (I can understand that) and about fear of change and how one should embrace the change and so on -- but WHAT change? It would be easier to embrace change if I had a hint what I'm changing. How do I know if I'm making the right change? What if I make the wrong decision THINKING I'm right, because I know I'm SUPPOSED to be changing? This is very confusing.
RE: WHAT is going on?
Hisbablove, you are correct about a lot, really a lot. I'm not offended. I'm off to work here in a minute but I just wanted to say that I mostly find true happiness and peace when I'm outside. I have a little area out there where I go (I live on a little farm) and I just love it. The trees, the birds, the garden, the animals, even the wild bunnies like to come and hang out... it's just so nice to be away from people out there.
When I really sit and reflect I feel like this is the "place" for me. That was I can be doing something constructive, use my mind, and NOT be destructive. I understand that I don't have a lot of patience for other people and I AM an introvert, and I can be awfully mean, so what better place to be where I'm happy, and then I see people when I'm at my best? This is the reason I'm going to school right now, just looking at options for my next career.
Oops I have to go, will comment more later. Had to laugh though -- the clenching of teeth oh yeah you really hit that one on the head!!! Also the rest, my body is totally out of whack, I seriously need an adjustment.
Thanks so much, can't wait to hear more.
RE: WHAT is going on?
That's an interesting question. Yeah. I've felt everything around me to be very surreal today. And me, wired but in slow motion, and really unclear. Didn't know if it had to do with the extra Lunesta I took (and the bad sleep), or if it was something else. Like I mentioned, a lot lately has just been a little bit "off," particularly my sleep. Lunesta normally doesn't affect the way I function the next day; I'm not a morning person so I'm always mentally limited in the morning, regardless.
To go back a little and summarize the last few months' chain of events: spent a year in a job I HATED, quit that but it took four months of struggling to get into the new job I wanted (worked in the bad job until I received the blessing to go to the good one.) Found out I was accepted at the new job and switched from nightshift (which I'd been on for a decade) to dayshift with one day off in between. Talk about a shock to the system! I'm really a night person at heart but agreed to days to get away from the toxic job I was in.
Because I was so stressed in that last job I also signed up for a few classes in a new career (to tell you how bad things were!) so when I went to start the new job -- well, school started at the same time. It's been running me ragged but now I've broken the code and I know I can DO IT!!! (Happy happy!!) The confusing part is trying on all these new roles and trying to figure out my ultimate plan. What is it I'm trying to accomplish? A new business? A hobby business? How much longer in the hard-core regular job I have, or is it a reality that I'll be working for a long time before I can make my new career/hobby/fun dream a reality?
In the meantime, there's the husband. I feel sometimes like he's trying to hold me back. I don't feel free to study as late and as often as I'd like -- because he complains that I don't have enough time for him. In my mind, we agreed on our financial goals (and we're reaching them, thanks to both of our good employment and judgement), and he understands that I have to do what I'm doing in order for us to accomplish this. But he's been comparing me to his coworkers' lovey-dovey, princess wives who don't work, stay at home, have no hobbies and want to spend their time with their husbands having sex. Ha! You get the picture over where are disagreements are.
I won't go indo sordid detail but I'm a Gemini -- and unfortunately, sex just isn't my thing. I'm kind of aloof when it comes to showing affection, a little cold. He's a Cancer. He's moody to the point I dread coming home sometimes because I don't know which man will be there. He's accusative. He tests me. He's manipulative and sneaky. He's needy. He's also very generous, BUT, every good thing he does comes with a pricetag. He showboats his generosity which of course makes it looks like I take him for granted (he'll even admit that he does this to "convince people he's okay if I ever say anything bad about him.") Everything is a game, and I'm pretty straightforward. I get really fed up with the games.
I was taking a test for school online the other night and although I was probably only on the computer for an hour to an hour and a half, I kid you not, he was in here every 15 minutes trying to feed me something. It was annoying at the time because I was trying to concentrate, but I thought, "Appreciate that he's being nice," so I thanked him, even though I really felt like he was trying to sabotage me. Truth soon came out: we went to bed and of course he wouldn't let me sleep, he wanted SEX. Grrrr!!!!! I get up in the morning VERY early for my shift and I didn't appreciate the extra time we spent. And, I never, EVER sleep after sex. But he does.
I guess I'm just wondering, with all the "change" that's supposed to be happening astrologically for Geminis (I think I'm remembering that right), what am I in store for? A SUCCESSFUL change in, modification of, or blending of careers? And relationship wise, is this moody cycle of doom going to go on forever (can I continue to put up with his moodiness, and can he continue to put up with my not fulfilling his emotional/physical Cancer needs?)
Sorry all, I really REALLY needed to vent, and I appreciate any gut feelings you all have or if you happen to know this planet is here and that one is there which means... things will just suck for a while longer.
