Libra South Node, Libra Moon
In Evolutionary astrology we look at the South Node with eyes that are biased to see what unfinished business, what blockage, what challenge was not met?either earlier in this life or in a former life. So, we read the South Node negatively. To read the ?Venus ruled? Libra negatively can be hard, because there is so much charm and personality there. It?s similar to saying ?that nice person at the party/the job/the meeting wasn?t really so nice after all.? Too much niceness, too much ?trying to make the peace at any price?, too much caring what the other person thinks and feels, can make a person appear like a chameleon. Why is there such a desire to please? What woundedness is under that need?
Enmeshment, co-dependence, and a subtle kind of opportunism and neediness are the worse traits of Libra; no matter if it be the Sun, Moon or South Node. In the South Node position or as the Moon, the emotional nature ?remembers? on a cellular level an original closeness and unity that is hoped for now, if not expected. Venus wants good relationships, harmony and beauty. Nothing wrong with that. Justice too, and credit for doing a good job. He/she wants to come up smelling like roses, and sometimes Venus bends the truth or takes radical risks to make their dreams come true.
So what is needed here? A healthy dose of its opposite: Mars. Venus needs the independent, assertiveness of its North Node of Aries to create the balance. And whether you have the South Node or Moon in Libra, there?s too much of a default pattern here of the illusive or manipulative feminine?whether you are male or female, we all have our counter-sexual parts within us, and with Libra, you are going to have to assert, fight, survive, and carry the weight of the paradoxes of life on your shoulders. You need to get assertive. Your soul survival may depend on you not depending too much on other people.
As always there?s a delicate crucial balance needed between the opposites. This is the Libra/Aries, ?I-Thou axis?-- the relationship balancing ?see-saw? between me and you. There?s great gold or goodness embedded in the South Node Libra, or Libra Moon, but if you?re going to learn from this, take a look at how you ?act-out? your relationships in your life, and how you respond to beauty. Are you nourishing yourself with ?random acts of beauty? and loving kindness? Good, that?s high Libra. Are you finding new ways to nourish your need for true relationships, or are you distracting or deceiving yourself and others? Libra likes the illusions and beauty of Neptunian fantasies, which are fine, but remember to honor the need for confrontation and assertion in your life. Venus needs Mars. The female and male parts of you are all there inside of you, just asking permission to express itself. ?Androgyny? can be seen as a kind of wholeness.
