Your Copy of “The Moon’s Nodes in Action”

“Never say never!” How true this is. I thought I’d never be able to resurrect the whole text of ‘The Moon’s Nodes in Action’ from its cyber-grave of apparently unopenable files going back to the 1990s. As we all know, that decade is literally prehistoric in Internet terms.

However, I reckoned without the ingenuity of my colleague, Willie Miller of co-occurrence, whose company has thus far published three elegant e-versions of my books. It has just done the same for the research study I wrote to complete my three-year Diploma from the Centre for Psychological Astrology in London, awarded in November 1998.

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. But life moved on, other projects beckoned. The thesis gathered dust, the files slowly became antiquated. But I never lost my interest in the Moon’s Nodes…

e-publication by co-occurrence

Many people – myself included – find the Moon’s Nodes fascinating. What you are about to 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…

I have decided to offer out this research as a free gift to any student or teacher of astrology who wishes to add to their existing knowledge of the Moon’s Nodes, not from a theoretical basis, but as they actually operate in the lives of people both famous and ‘ordinary’. It would be great if you felt you could return something for this gift, by making a small donation to the Scottish Cot Death Trust (which researches the causes of unexplained sudden deaths in infants and small children, offering research-based advice as well as supporting bereaved parents) or to a favourite charity of your own.

Thanks – and do let me know in due course what you think of the book…

  2. 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.


  3. Thank you Anne! Like Nancy above, this is profoundy timely for me…and reading about the coincidence of your publishing cycle…… floored me!

    I imagine your going to hear from a lot of Virgo North Nodes

    I will be absorbing this e book like a sponge

    I was not enjoying the internal feelings of the last week and was honestly “creeped out”

    Thank you so much for sharing.


  4. Thanks, starting a nodal return – Virgo NN in first house at 23 degrees.
