Alfredo Asks:

“Is there anything to karmic astrology beyond the North and South Node thing? Half of the astrology web sites on the internet claim to specialize in ‘karmic astrology’ and promise to offer deep insights into one’s present life mission. Nevertheless, the only specific or particular reference ever made in the actual chart concerns the placement of the North and South Nodes, and these seem to offer only very vague/general information.”

“My nodal axis is 21 Leo/Aquarius and my MC/IC axis is 23 Leo/Aquarius. I’ve noticed that Astodienst interprets the nodes as being in the following houses, as they would a planet. But since the nodes are points and not bodies, would you interpret them this way?”

Peg Asks:

“I’ve seen in some pop astrology books that our Ascendant is the sign that we were during our last incarnation on Earth, while others say that the sign just before the ascendant is, and still other say that we reincarnate in the order of the Zodiac (i.e.,[you start out as an Aries and] the last time you’re here, you’re a Pisces). Assuming that one is open to the idea of reincarnation, can the South Node indicate what “sign” a person was the last time they were here? Can anything in the chart indicate this?”

“I have a client who has her South Node at 12 degrees Capricorn, conjunct her Ascendant at 11 degrees Capricorn. She is considering becoming involved with a man who has Saturn (retrograde) at 11 degrees Capricorn. Any insight? Also, generally what is your insight into the South Node rising so close to the Ascendant?”

“I’m hoping you’ll share some insight on the North Node in the 12th House. Sun is also in the 12th in Capricorn...Kind of a spiritual overkill, from other sources I’ve read....I have it in Capricorn, conjunct Chiron...Sun is also in the 12th in Capricorn...(I feel like an honorary Pisces sometimes!)”

Amy Asks:

“My question deals with the seeming ‘extra little’ things in a chart, such as the Part of Fortune, the Nodes, the IC, etc. Often these are downplayed or ignored in a chart, and there may be even more other ‘points’ in a chart available for analysis. How are each of these relevant and how strong are they? Why are they often ignored or rarely addressed in many natal astrology books?”

“What can you tell me about the Vertex point in the chart? My Vertex has progressed into my already loaded 8th house. I feel that this year is unlocking a lot of things for me, and I also feel quite anxious at times, as if I’m on the verge of something long-awaited and colossal.”

“What is Transpluto? I have a stellium in my 5th house in Leo, which includes Transpluto, Mercury, Uranus and the Sun.”

“My question has to do with a 28 degree Sun in Pisces and Saturn/Mars on the Midheaven. Do you think this falls under the ‘weeping degree of Pisces’ that foretells possible death by drowning/murder/suicide? This person is in the U.S. Army.”

Rick Asks:

“I have a question about interpreting an asteroid. I have read that you don’t normally use the asteroids very much, but what if the asteroid is prominently placed and aspected in the chart? I have Vesta opposing my Midheaven (exactly) and thus conjunct my IC. [Would you] give an asteroid more weight than usual if it is sitting on an angle and/or tightly aspected by powerful planets?”

Ramon Asks:

“What are the meanings of the asteroids Ceres, Pallas, Juno and Vesta? I have my Sun conjunct Juno in Libra in the 6th house with an orb of 1 minute. My girlfriend has Juno conjunct Uranus in Scorpio. As Juno seems to do with relationships (as I have read from a dubious source), what can I expect from this?”

David Asks:

“I was wondering about Juno and Chiron. How would you interpret the aspects formed between these mysterious figures and the more common planets in the horoscope?”
