purpose.Perhaps understanding the causes of disaster may lead at least to enough enlightenment toprotect ourselves from disaster, or transform our way of feeling about them, as we near theprophesied year of 2012 and approach with trepidation the galactic Gateway of the Gods.So what are the Nodes of the Moon? The Sun moves along the ecliptic and most of the planetsfollow suit, but the Moon has a slight wobble to its course. This means that at two points its pathcrosses the ecliptic. The crossing points of the Moon's path over the ecliptic marks a Node. Thismay or may not also be associated with a solar or lunar eclipse. The Moon wobbles over theecliptic to the north creating the North Node and crosses over the ecliptic to the south to create theSouth Node. The Nodes always remain opposite each other.It does not take an eclipse to cause a disaster, a difficult atrological aspect between a heavenlybody and the two Nodes is often enough. If one of the two major lights, Sun or Moon, aspect theNodes through a square, this can trigger a disastrous period. When it involves the Moon this lastsa day or two but with the Sun the aspect lasts over a week.These effects of the Moon's Wobble, and the Nodes have been traced by a number of astrologically oriented people and in the endnotes are some links to articles
.For instance in May2008 as first Mercury and then the Sun squared the Nodes that increasingly aligned with Neptuneon one side and Saturn on the other causing major disasters and the deaths of many thousands of people:
May 2008 Disasters
May 1–2, Arkansas:
seven people are killed and 13 more are injured in Arkansaswhen storms hit 16 counties.
(Mercury T square Nodes)
May 3, Myanmar:
Cyclone Nargis hits the Irrawaddy Delta and the city of Yangon,killing about 78,000 people. Most of the deaths and destruction were caused by a 12-foot-high tidal wave that formed during the storm. Cyclone Nargis is the worst natural disaster since the tsunami in 2004.

May 11, Okla., Mo., Ga.:
more than 20 people die and hundreds more are injuredwhen tornadoes hit Missouri, Oklahoma, and Georgia. Racine, a town about 170 milessouth of Kansas City, Missouri was most damaged, leaving about 9,000 people withoutelectricity for over three days.
(Sun T sq. Nodes).
May 12, China:
over 67,000 people die and hundreds of thousands more are injuredwhen a 7.9 magnitude earthquake strikes Sichuan, Gansu, and Yunnan Provinces inwestern China..

as also Neptuneand Chiron c. North Node.)
What has not been discussed, or even noticed in recent history, as far as I can see, is theincreased disaster potential given when the centre of our galaxy, 26,000 light years away, is alsoinvolved in aspects to the Nodes.
1Saturn or his sign or house is always involved in earthquakes, especially when aspecting the Nodes as here as in theTsunami December 2004 where Saturn was in a grand cross with Nodes involving also his sign Capricorn rising.
