This is a great synchronicity; I experienced my first nodal return a few days ago as well! ;)
And yes, to answer your question, I believe the True Nodes are the North/South Nodes Astrodienst uses, although the Mean Nodes can be considered to be another "version" of the North/South Nodes; they are calculated slightly differently and do not take the "wobbling" of the Moon into account in their calculation, sort of smoothing out the occasional direct motion that the True Nodes appear to take sometimes. In contrast, I believe the Mean Nodes are always retrograde.
P.S. It looks like you have some other interesting transits going on now as well; Saturn is currently conjunct your natal Jupiter, which should last for a little while, Jupiter looks like it is finally moving away from your natal Neptune, and Pluto will be conjunct your natal Mercury for a long time yet. Chiron is moving away from your Aquarius Ascendant--which is conjunct the Aquarius Ascendant of the incorrect chart I used for six months, by the way--and towards your natal Venus, which is probably still recovering from its assault from Neptune. Poor Venus!
On the other hand, I think it's extremely cool that your North Node is conjunct the Royal Star, Regulus, although it is technically located in Leo instead of Virgo. You've also got your Midheaven/Nadir axis right on Antares/Alderban. Neat! :cool:

Can l ask how you got your chart into the post like that please? :)
Loving your transits...
The nodes are interesting for pushing us forward or holding us back in synastry, depending on which node the persons planets trigger, l think!
