The Moon will be in Cancer conjunct her North Node on Friday morning from 8.45 am to 12.15 pm, exact at 10.28 am (AEDT).  This is a perfect time to put out affirmations and prayers to heal our beautiful land and her wildlife.  The North Node in Cancer is trying to work with us all to bring out our more vulnerable, nurturing and supporting nature to heal our inner wounds and move away from the repressed emotional patterns from the Capricorn South Node.  People like myself who have their Natal Nodes in Cancer and Capricorn can have an exceptionally powerful effect!

You can see in Melbourne where this chart is set, the North Node will be in the 4th House of home, family and emotional safety, our deepest core.  The Capricorn South Node has been being amplified by a conjunction to Jupiter, representing corporate organisations and governments and the culture which has driven us to feel we gain more security by amassing more material assets, bigger houses and cars and forgetting about the effect on our planet.  This will be further demonstrated by their position in the 10th House, the public sector and social prominence.  The remainder of the Capricorn planets will be in the 11th House of the community and the world around us all.  Soon on January 13, Saturn will make exact his conjunction to Pluto, which has previously accompanied wars and recessions in 1982, 1947 and 1914.

Chiron and Black Moon Lilith are squaring the Nodes, representing the wounds to our body and appearance in Australia, our land, our beautiful koalas and other native species which are how the world sees us, already being decimated.  The repression of feminine energy from Lilith in Pisces and the wounds to our self-identity with Chiron in Aries.

Later in the evening from 10 pm to 1 am, the Moon will connect with gentle Artemis who the Romans called Diana, Mistress of the Forests and the Beasts.

Please pray for us everyone when the Moon is conjunct the North Node, on Friday between 8.45 am and 12.15 pm (AEDT), that is Thursday from 9.45 pm to 1.15 am (UT).   Our embattled firefighters are dreading Friday from the forecasts of high temperatures and winds.
