Nodes Activated in Solar Return
Hi, I was here before under another username (plutopassing) but can't seem to log in as I've been away for months. I wonder if anyone can help interpret these solar return aspects, as both me and my partner's solar returns for 2009 are showing major aspects to our north nodes which in our natal charts both happen to be 23 gemini (me) and 23 aquarius (him).
Firstly his SR ascendant is at 23 gemini which conjuncts my north node (also his natal moon at 26 gem) and trines his natal north node at 23 Aq. Also his SR north node conjuncts his natal MC (SR node 09.16 Aquarius, Natal MC 09.34 Aquarius).
In mine the SR Asc is at 22.39 Gemini, natal nnode at 23.25 gem. So it is conjunct my natal NNode and his SR Ascendant within one degree (also trining his natal NNode). My SR NNode is conjunct my natal 7th cusp within 2 degrees. Notice we both have the SR Nodes conjunct a natal angle (him MC, me Dsc).
Lastly SR Neptune is also at 23 Aquarius, conjuncting his natal NNode within ONE MINUTE 23.40 (sr nep) and 23.30 (natal nn). My SR Neptune is just within 5 degrees of my 7th house ruler (saturn).
I definitely know that there is something going on here with our nodes but I'm not so sure of the interpretation of the north node. I know it is like Jupiter and it has to do with fate so that's not a bad thing but if his SR Ascendant conjuncts my NN then that means his SR Descendant is conjunct my South Node which may not be so good. Also if my SR NN conjuncts my natal Descendant then the South Node conjuncts my Natal Ascendant. South Node is similar to Saturn so its very confusing.
Some of the background info is that I think this is a fated relationship as we met abroad (he is still there and coming to see me just as transiting Venus (his ascendant ruler - taurus) conjuncts his natal Asc and exactly trines my moon in Capricorn. I recently spent 3 months with him in his country and it was the best time of my life. We have both had difficult relationships in the past but we feel we have now met the "right" one and want to get married and for me to go and live with him in his country.
Not to go off topic here but I also met him when my Solar Arc Directed Vertex was conjunct the 7th cusp (which I have read generally means a fated meeting when vertex is active). Our north nodes are in exact trine so I think this shows the fatedness of the relationship.
There are so many obstacles for us to overcome before we can actually do what we want, i.e. marry. Obtaining the relevant visas for each other's countries is also not such an easy process. If this relationship is so fated why is it producing so many obstacles to begin with?
I will post the charts if that helps, but I would be very grateful for any comments.
