Fire and Water: The Astrology of November 6-11 and the CA Fires

Fire and Water: The Astrology of November 6-11 and the CA Fires

As I write this, the Woolsey Fire is still blazing in Los Angeles County, sending waves of destruction over more than 90,000 acres. My heart has been broken for days thinking of the losses. This fire hits home for me because I’ve recently bought a house in a neighboring community, and for the past several months, we’ve been driving up and down streets in the same neighborhoods involved in the fire. It has been intense to watch the fire spread so quickly and erratically knowing that our new home is just a few miles away.

Several people have asked me about the astrology of these wildfires. I’ve written up a brief overview of some of the most significant transits of that day. These are just preliminary thoughts, but I’ll be adding more in the future as I take time to do more research.

What I found so far can shed some light and also offer a note of caution as we head into 2019.

Happy Holidays! Here are December's Transits

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

2016 shook our collective conscious- the web we make up through our intersecting spiritual cords. 2016 made ripples throughout it. We have all been changed by unexpected circumstances that carried us on a bit of a roller coaster ride. We had to either hold on to the status quo and make peace with ourselves and others, or we had to step away and move into the dark unknown of new beginnings. We saw this in our personal lives and also in world events.  

Our higher selves have been calling for pretty intense spiritual growth, and 2016 accelerated growth processes. Consequently, we now find ourselves more closely aligned to our North Node paths more than ever. 

What does that mean?

Your North Node represents a point of destiny in your chart, and it is directly opposite the South Node. Together, these points form an axis line that plays a significant role in your chart and life. Your purpose is what brings you the most meaning in your life, what fulfills your soul. However, it is unfamiliar territory. Thus, the closer you get to the realization of your North Node, the more resistance and fear you feel. Your Nodal axis tugs at your ego, urging you forward in often uncomfortable ways and then sends you backward to clear old karma/old emotional and psychological patterns. You slide back and forth between these two impulses throughout your life, finding a balance between the comfort of the South Node and the fulfillment of the North Node.
