Q: “What can you tell me about having a Pisces North Node in the 12th House? I’m a few years from retirement and never quite figured out what to be. Thanks! (Time, date and place of birth supplied)
A: Your Pisces North Node is rule by Jupiter, so considering Jupiter’s placement in your chart can provide clues as to your purpose and potential. You have Jupiter in Aries, conjunct your Ascendant, showing one of your most important priorities this lifetime is self-development.
Jupiter in Aries gifts you with a cheeky, charming and confident quality. Having Jupiter on the ascendant indicates an optimistic energy, as well as a thirst for adventure. Living life to the full, rather than just achieving at work, is important.
Pisces and the 12th House both represent themes of service, especially the kind inspired by divine devotion. Supporting charitable causes, or those less fortunate, can be a beautiful way to express this energy.
In terms of career or life direction, your MC or professional sign is Capricorn. Capricorn is typically hard working, which offers a grounding energy to balance the inspired and compassionate Pisces tendencies. The ruling planet of Capricorn, Saturn, is your personal career planet.
Saturn is strongly placed in Libra in the 7th House. This suggests work that involves working with people or partners in a one on one capacity is most fulfilling. The Capricorn and Saturn tone regarding work can suggest you hit your most fulfilling professional period later in life.
Going forward, 2014 and 2015 are dramatic years of reinvention and change. Both intense Pluto and unpredictable Uranus activate your Capricorn Sun, suggesting that if you’ve ever wanted to make a radical but authentic change, the next two years are ideal for shaking things up.
