The True Node is not a celestial body, but the ecliptic point of the astronomical and astrological chart.
Two times a year the Sun, the Moon and Earth reach a perfect alignment. This is the time of the eclipses – solar and lunar, and more rarely- other planet-over-sun eclipses will occur at this special time and point.
Astrologically and astronomically this will happen when the sun, as seen from earth, will reach one of the two opposing signs that shift from year to year, drawing back each time by a sign (for example: one year it would be Gemini-Sagittarius, the next Taurus-Scorpio, later on Aries-Libra and so on…). These two ecliptic alignments can and are calculated ahead, and are called the True Node and the South Node – and they are an important part of the astrological chart.
In a natal chart this point will show of the deepest journey and hardest lessons the person comes to learn in his or her life-time, as it symbolizes the karmic break-through the soul need to undergo.
These days the True Node has shifted and moved to a new astrological realm, something that happens once a year, and after being in the Realm of Abundance for about a year, now it is located at the realm of Nobility (constellation Leo).
From its new location the True Node promises us certain challenges and will introduce to us the developmental lessons we need to learn. Each astrological tribe will be affected differently by this shift, and this forecast will show how each one of us is influenced by this:
The Lake – For those Born Between March 14 – April 12
This year the True Node travels your astrological house of Management and Health. This will be a year where cleaning up and tidying will be needed to be done. Everything that was neglected and pushed aside, in your home, office and even to do with your physical health, will need now to be dealt with and be fixed and taken care of. But the actual cleaning is just a metaphor (though needed as well!) for a need to be very clean inside and with what you do, the way you behave and talk. This is the time to mend the gap between the person you want to be and how you actually are, and it will take many little deeds and actions to achieve.

The Flame – For those Born Between April 13 – May 13
The True-Node’s location this year will help you go through the needed lessons and challenges in order to re-connect to your vitality and confidence. This is the time to deal with past-events, and even residues from past life-times that make you feel unconfident or prevent you from shining fully with your talents and godly-given gifts. This is a time of healing towards a better connection with yourself and the things you love to do. Astrological Card to meditate upon – Self-Expression, from Karni Zor’s Holistic Astrological Card’s deck.
The Key – For those Born Between May 14 – June 14
The True Node will affect for a whole year the area in your life to do with family, early childhood memories, parenthood and emotions in general. This is a time to evaluate your perceptions to do with family and with feelings – a time for healing and closure of past events that are still influencing you and controlling your psychologies. Things from the past or understanding about your own parenting may pop up and make you uncomfortable – but this is their way to leave your system and leave you clean. This is the time to adopt new and healthy perceptions about emotions and family life and to form new and healthy emotional-patterns.

Exchange – For those Born Between June 15 – July 15
The True Node is going to teach you many things about communication and socializing this year. This is the time to learn the yet-unlearned lessons about how, what and when to say things. This is the time to re-evaluate the people you socialize with, and make sure the group of people you are in touch with suit who you truly are NOW and does not reflect things you were connected to in your past but do not fit you anymore. This is also the time to leave behind unwanted thought patterns that do not serve you any more in order to make your thinking more clean and productive. Astrological Card to meditate upon – Communication, from Karni Zor’s Holistic Astrological Card’s deck.
Giving – For those Born Between July 16 – August 15
The True Node is going to teach you this time about the ability to feel secure and steady. The astrological house it is traveling is the house of Property and Finance, but its true lesson is actually not about money, as the lack/wealth of money is just a symptom that symbolizes the person’s ability to feel bad/ good connections with the tangible world. We want to feel secure and safe. This is the time to undergo the challenge and learn the lessons that will make you feel safe and secure no matter what, as you find the steady core inside of yourself that has nothing to do with the financial situation, and outer-events slowly stop to threaten your inner-steady-core. Astrological Card to meditate upon – The Tangible (2nd House), from Karni Zor’s Holistic Astrological Card’s deck.
Nobility – For those Born Between August 16 – Sept 15
This year the True Node is going to be in your astrological realm, the Realm of Nobility. This is a very special and crucial time that occurs once every 12-13 years – a time that brings out all the important lessons and challenges your soul to go through and learn during your life time. This is a challenging time, but very rewarding – as lessons that will been learned this year will not appear in your life in the future. This is the time not to leave a stone un-turned: a time to tackle every fear, obstacle or challenge. If you feel you have difficulties know they are not there “by chance” – they are pointing out something crucial you need to learn, and the obstacle will disappear only after you have learned the lesson that goes with it. This is the time for break-throughs. This is the time not to regurgitate the past and revert to old patterns – but create a clear and clean future and find new ways.

Abundance – For those Born Between Sept 16 – October 16
After a whole year that the True Node has traveled in your astrological realm, now it move out of it – and this is actually great news, as life can become less challenging and complex. You have gone through many development during 2015, and the coming year will be more relaxing, a time to digest and integrate all the lessons you have learned. Astrological Card to meditate upon – Abundance, from Karni Zor’s Holistic Astrological Card’s deck.
Creation – For those Born Between October 17- Nov 14
The True Node will travel your Astrological House of Vocation this year. This is a time that challenges to do with your vocation might appear in order for you to overcome them and learn some important lessons to do with the ability to achieve your goals and match your true destiny. This is the time to check if you are on the right track or if you have set as goals things that are not relevant anymore. This is the time for some break-throughs and major steps that will help you put the past aside as you face the future. Astrological Card to meditate upon – Vocation, from Karni Zor’s Holistic Astrological Card’s deck.
The Gate – For those Born Between November 15 – December 14
The True Node will affect your work and career during 2016. If there are lessons to be learned as to your ability to commit to fulfilling your dreams by hard work – this is the time to learn these lessons and tackle all the challenges that prevent you from having the job you dream of, and go on in a determined way on the path of your choice. This is the time to check your thought patterns and habitual behavior to do with the ability to carry-on a job, and make the needed changes if necessary. The lessons and challenges that will tackle you this year will help you, in the future, to undertake any job you want in a committed and honorable way. Astrological Card to meditate upon – Work, from Karni Zor’s Holistic Astrological Card’s deck.
Flexibility – For those Born Between December 15 – January 13
During 2016 the True Node teaches you about true freedom. You will learn that freedom can be found within, and it can stay unaffected by any “outer” obstacles. Time will teach you that in order to have true freedom you also need to let go and overcome inner-restraints that come from your past: your childhood, the way you were brought up and unfortunate past experiences . This is the time to expand horizons, do new things, learn and grow as you reach new levels and places from within and in the “real world”.

The Diamond – For those Born Between January 14 – February 12
During 2016 the location of the True Node will help you undertake a special journey of development and spiritual connection. This is the time to create real connections – first with yourself by checking what is true for now and what from the past can be left behind; afterwards connection with the people you love, as obstacles and restraints can be lifted in order to have a real intimacy and trust. And last but not least – a true connection with the spiritual worlds that need you to be at the point, not dwelling in the past but available to what wants to reach you right now.

The Waterfall – For those Born Between February 13 – March 13
The True Node will travel this year in your astrological House of Love & Relationships. This is the time to learn different lessons to do with this crucial subject. You will learn to look at your relationship patterns, put aside some hurtful memories to do with partnership and love, and go through the needed healing in order to have a clean and new perception about couple-ship. This can be a challenging time to do with existing relationships or with the subject in general – but all and all this is the time to put behind the past and make some break-throughs in order to achieve some brand new starts, mainly inside of yourself, to do with this subject.
