[to all: I've changed the 'Title' of this thread, as the original title I gave it was mis-leading and led to too much controversey...thanks for understanding]
...from a posting of mine starting a new thread at astrologyweekly.com forum. I believe it is of interest [or intrigue] enough to post here.
Thanks, David M.
Greetings. This is a continuation of an idea that sprang from another thread in the 'Spiritual' sub-forum.
The question arose as to one of association... about to which signs the Nodes are associated with and by what capacity.
I did a little research and found an article, here at astrologyweekly, in the main page data reference.
Follow this idea and see if it doesn't make some sense.
The premise of the association by deduction is that since the North Node represents 'Gods' Will' and that the South Node represents the "Collective Karmic Past of Mankind', then where would the 'axis' of this influence ... or "Maximum Vibration Axis" by the authors term...would lie?
I believe I have more than a clue!
[what I'm trying to say is that the Nodes somehow 'vibe' with a 'dignification' [for want of a better term] to the 30th degree of both Cap. and Cancer...not necessarily 'exalted']
...here's the pertinent clip from the other thread.
I would say that the author is correct in choosing Capricorn and Cancer as being 'associated' with the 'exaltations'...[In fact I think the Nodes are exalted in those Signs] as Cancer is the sign associated with the Moon and you would have to mate the 'Pole' of the nodes to the 'Pole' of those two signs[what the author identifies as "the maximum vibration axis"...a very good term.]...but the 30th degree of Capricorn represents 'Gods Will' by Sabian Symbology [see my thread on the birthchart of all creation...the Kabbalah backs this up] and the 30th degree of Cancer represents the past...just look at the Sabian symbology!
