‘The Moon’s Nodes in Action’ is the research study I wrote to complete my three-year Diploma from the Centre for Psychological Astrology in London.
At that time, the Centre’s Director Dr Liz Greene described ‘The Moon’s Nodes in Action’ as “…a superb thesis…” I was of course, delighted to have my work described in those terms. However, as life moved on, other projects beckoned. But I never lost my interest in the Moon’s Nodes…
Many people – myself included – find the Moon’s Nodes fascinating. What you will shortly read is a comprehensive, original piece of research, born from my curiosity and interest over many years. As fellow writer and astrologer Paul F Newman says in his generous preface to the study:
“… this book is about…. Nodal Returns, Nodal synastries, Nodal ‘trawls’ and Nodal moments. A knowledge-gathering journey through the lives and charts of the famous and not so famous – yet with the excitement of a personal quest and the inestimable benefit of coming through the pen of a gifted writer. Herein are facts – not theories – that you can use to enrich your own astrological interpretations and personal understanding of the Moon’s Nodes in Action….”
Please note that the study was written in 1998 and I have chosen not to update it, but simply to present the research as I completed it at the time. Being aware that other astrologers have published their own research since then, I am happy to make my small contribution, albeit somewhat retrospectively!
The Nodal Return cycle is 18.6 years. When I wrote the study, the North Node was in the sign of Virgo. I have just realised that it returns there in November 2015, the year my research is finally published in its entirety, eighteen years after I first began to write it in the autumn of 1997…
UPDATE 12.4. 2019:
In the last 3 years, over 5000 people have downloaded a free copy of this book, and I am delighted that they have done so – I’ve also received some wonderful feedback, eg
‘I want to give you feedback immediately: the value of your book is at least 1 million dollars and I got it for 7 dollars. What a buy and I have been through only 25 pages!’ (Tuomo Henttu, Finland)
However, I feel the time has come now to charge a fee, ie $10.00 per copy.
If you’d like to buy the book, the simplest way is to go into PayPal and send $10.00 directly to my PayPal account which is: firstname.lastname@example.org
PayPal will then send me an email notifying me of the payment, whereupon I will send you the book within 24 hours. Thank you!

Thank You for this e-book. Very timely for me.
Delighted, Nancy. Enjoy, benefit – and do let me have some feedback!
Hello! I have a node question! My son’s North Node is conjuct this North Node (his nodal return) IS CONJUNCT this 8.21.17 Solar Eclipse..(of course)..but its in his 8th house enveloping Virgo and the end of Leo..
Mars is also in this house but not near to the Natal north node.
He has been having bicycle accidents (he is 18 and refuses to drive a car)…
He is planning a 2-3 week trip to Germany..leaving the US on 8.23. This is a karmic echo of a trip to Germany that I made at his age (precisely).
Is he going to be struck with a sudden crisis (mars) in the 8th, which will force him to awaken his heart,courage and leadership (leo north node/aquarius south node)?
I will hopefully see your reply by email..I am also “Dandilion Song” on FB..
Thanks for your question – I can certainly appreciate that you are concerned for your son going away on a trip , but it would be quite unethical of me to offer any kind of response to your question without having him and his horoscope in the same room as me, your son having himself requested a reading.

Hi Anne, just a question about your Nodes book – the price is $7. What currency is that? I am in Australia so I’m guessing thats US dollars? Thanks.
Yes, Gail, it’s American dollars. I guess PayPal does an automatic conversion…
