Experiences and significance of 2nd (37) nodal return
Thank you ????
I've had a few Libra related experiences since my nodal return began. I think I've been experiencing more of the Ketu side of things because I have more planets with Ketu (lucky me????). My nodes are in 8/2 axis. These are some of my experiences so far:
Recently, I had an encounter with a nosy relative who gave me his unsolicited opinion about what I'm doing with my life and my value/ lack of worth in his eyes. It struck a nerve with me at the time because I'd already been feeling those things about myself privately before he showed up and put me on blast. I also felt somewhat betrayed by the lack of support from some of my immediate family members too when I found out he was also talking to them about me behind my back.
However, it soon came to light that this relative is himself unemployed and has been for years (despite bringing his kids on a month long vacation to another continent and expecting his distant relatives to foot the bill of hosting and entertaining them ????????♀️). So It seems like he's just a hypocrite with a bad Libra, but I still wish I had taken the opportunity to lean in to my Queen of Diamonds ecliptic card more and stood up for myself instead of suffering in silence because of my ashamed Venus (10 of Diamonds).
Another situation that's happening currently is that I've been indirectly invited to go on some excursions and now a trip that I really can't afford. So, I decided to turn it down because I'd rather not be indebted to someone else (Libra). Even though my Rahu-Jupiter conjunction in 8H Aries should facilitate me to use other people's resources, I really don't want to have to deal with the consequences of getting things from other people because I find there's always strings attached even when it's implied otherwise.
The experience that @kam is having is the perfect example of how it works. There is an inkling and a pull, but there is still much confusion, not enough clarity, and the newness of being able to use Saturn.
I am a magnet for unsolicited advice. Normally, I listen and take it on board. But the period between the nodal return and Rahu maturation was like everything touching raw nerves. My Ecliptic is the 9 of Spades, and quiet contemplation usually brings me answers, but using it during that time was going round and round the same problems without being able to accept a new solution. It was a great path towards a total burnout, though ????
My sister is this age and is currently going though her nodal return as well. She has been doing really well with her career since the transit began. She won a company-wide "big brain" award at work, has been recognized for her contributions by her colleagues and was recently offered a promotion with a significant raise. Rahu and Ketu are in 1/7 axis in her chart. She has a ruchaka Mars, but Venus is debilitated so she needs to keep on top of her body work to stay limber and manage chronic muscle and joint stiffness.
