ISAR UK Star Club: Deciphering the Dragon
With Mark Cullen
A look at the history of the lunar nodes in astrology.
Most astrologers work with the lunar nodes and many regard them as a key part of the horoscope. However, there is no astrological consensus on how to delineate them. Historically, contrasting astrological traditions have evolved regarding how to interpret the nodes in Hellenistic, Medieval, and Indian astrology. In addition, newer approaches towards delineating the nodes emerged in Western astrology in the 20thcentury. After, reviewing these differing approaches we will explore the nodes in practical chart examples with a particular focus on their influence in planetary conjunctions, squares (bendings) and transits.
