Hyde, Maggie – The Nodes and Eclipses in Synastry: Love on the Nodes

Traditionally, the Moon’s Nodes symbolize karma, twists of fate and the uncanny sense that ‘what goes around comes around’. They are the points of projection and introjection, and through them we give and receive. As the uniting place of Sun and Moon, they are also where we can be eclipsed. In this lecture we will look at how node and eclipse symbolism is repeatedly found between the horoscopes of lovers, especially in the eclipses prior to birth and in nodal transits of natal inter-aspects. By understanding this symbolism, as astrologers we can help to cast some light on complicated or ‘fated’ relationships. Illustrated throughout with example case histories.
