Mars, Uranus, North Node Triple Conjunction

fire, Mars, Uranus, North Node Taurus triple conjunction

There’s a major triple conjunction taking place as July ends and August begins between Mars, Uranus & the North Node in Taurus. Mars & Uranus meet every two years but the rare conjunction is between the planet of innovation & change Uranus and the karmic north node at 18° Taurus.

This conjunction only takes place once every 15/16 years. Therefore, it may be worth looking back to events in 2007, 1991, 1976 & 1961 to see whether these are years in your life that stand out. Could you sense the wheel of fortune turning?

Depending whether you use the mean node or true node, the conjunction between Uranus & the North Node is exact on July 26th or July 31st. You’re experiencing it already & it may last a while after the big event, a week or two.

Lunar Nodes

The Lunar Nodes are the points in the sky where the Moon’s path crosses the ecliptic, the Sun’s journey around the zodiac. Karmic points in astrology, the Nodes are termed the Dragon’s Head and Tail or in Vedic astrology, Rahu and Ketu. The nodes often add an extra level of insight and depth in an astrology consultation. Here’s why:

Holding back – South Node 

Whichever star sign and house you find the North Node in, the South Node will be in the opposite star sign and house. The South Node is said to be where you retreat to, your comfort zone. In traditional astrology, it can indicate your downfall and what’s not good for you.

Moving forward – North Node

The North Node is what you’re striving or aiming for in this lifetime. It’s your life lesson, your destiny and your major area of learning. You may have to step out of your comfort zone to reach your North Node destination but it’s worth doing.

If you believe in past lives, it’s thought that you’re stuck in your South Node destiny until you can break free, stop repeating the same patterns and move on.

Uranus & The Nodes

The nodes change signs every 18 months approximately and they are currently cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This is where the eclipses are taking place from November 2021 to October 2023.

This is why the nodes are linked to destiny as the wheel of fortune turns. Eclipse cycles often coincide with major change in your life wherever they fall in your horoscope.

Plus, Uranus has a similar nature to eclipses. It’s a planet that often triggers the unexpected. Things happen out of the blue, life turns upside-down, a new signpost guides you down a different path and you’re more in tune with fate than free will.

Mars Conjunct Uranus

What makes this particular conjunction so powerful and urgent is the fact that Mars is involved. On August 1st/2nd, there’s a Mars-Uranus conjunction at 18° Taurus triggering the North Node point.

This is why it’s likely to be the end of July and beginning of August when you find out what this means for you. We may also see how it’s going to play out in the collective.

Mars is a trigger, a catalyst and has certain similarities to Uranus. Both planets favour impulse, quickness and speed. Mars is fiery & furious and the red planet rules anger, passion and action.

Together, Mars and Uranus create a lightning strike. There’s always a note of caution when these two planets get together as they can coincide with accidents, leaping out of the frying pan into the fire.

You’re wise to handle this lightning combination with care. Avoid angry people and situations. Recognise your own anger and your impulse to leap into action with no care or forethought.

Triple Conjunction

Yet, the plus side of this triple conjunction seems to be awakening something within society and within individuals. There’s a calling here and this has shown clearly in my work with clients recently.

It may feel as if there’s an unstoppable force pulling you forward, almost like a magnetic attraction. You can’t possibly not go there or do that one thing. You have to set the wheels in motion.

Wherever this triple conjunction falls in your horoscope, you may already sense the wheel of fortune turning and are ready to heed the call for change.

This could be a major time of breakthroughs, enlightenment and innovative action. Yes, it could be disruptive, destructive & fiery but, on a personal level, this might just be the ideal time to heed the call of change.

Where It Falls

Consider where this powerful triple conjunction falls in your birth chart, which house and which area of life it triggers. Here’s a quick guide – read your Sun sign & Ascendant sign if you know it:

  • Taurus: Self, image, name, your identity
  • Gemini: Retreat, quiet time, seclusion, service to others, introspection
  • Cancer: Friends, groups, social networks, political agendas, hopes & wishes

    1. It feels important for you, Emma. Only because I know your chart, it may be about different areas of your life – relationships, joint ventures, home/family, money. So, it could play out in different ways. Jupiter in Taurus wants the good life 🙂 – so consider what areas are changing there perhaps? Being a Sun Aquarius, it may also be about your desire to change the world! Hope that helps.

  1. This was very helpful, especially your noting the years when this specific conjunction last took place. Thank you!

  2. Great article thank you 😁
    In my natal chart I have moon at 19 Taurus and north node at 18 Taurus, Taurus is my 10th house. Do you have any thoughts on how this may affect me please?

    1. An ideal time to think about how emotionally fulfilled you with the direction your life is taking? It may be about motherhood, working from home or needing a vocation that satisfies you on an inner level. You may be changing direction quite significantly. That’s the quick answer. There may be more depending what else is going on in your birth chart, what house the moon rules, what aspects the moon makes, etc. Hope that helps.

  3. Hi,
    I’m looking at my chart and the big three conjunction is exactly on my Sun and Mars (and I also had North node return few months ago) in Taurus in 10th house. Opposing my Neptune. I’m trying to understand what is going on in my life right now, how it will have an impact on me?
    Thank you! <3

    1. Trying to understand what’s going on is probably about right if it’s triggering your natal Sun/Mars opposition to Neptune! Maybe an ideal time to follow the signs to reorient your compass moving forwards. Also, life could step in to move you in a new direction – it can work both ways. Sending best wishes.

  4. It happened that I have Moon in taurus at 18 * (3 planets în taurus ), Aquarius ascedent, uranus în scorpio, north node leo/A. Could this lead to a change în my life?

    1. Yes, possibly. Look at which house the Moon is in and what house it rules – i.e. where you find Cancer on the cusp. Also the aspects to the Moon may be important. The Moon rules the mother, your inner needs, what feeds you & gives you comfort. It’s a planet linked to emotion. Hope that helps.

  5. My Jupiter is 18 Taurus 42 in the 12th House. My Sun is in Leo in the 3rd House. Part of Fortune is trine Jupiter from 8th House at 23 Cap 27. Venus/Pluto/South Node at 20-22 Leo conjunct IC and square Jupiter. Any thoughts for me?

    1. Look at the houses Jupiter rules in your horoscope, i.e. where you find Sagittarius and Pisces. The 12th house tends to be about inner work, your spiritual path. It may be around letting go or adapting a money mind-set or something similar – believing that you have enough, that life will provide for you. If you were wealthy, it could be about giving money away to help others. It can play out in different ways and you have to take the whole chart into account. Hope that helps.

    1. Are they close to 18 degrees? Look at what house they’re in and what houses they rule i.e. the sign of the cusp – Moon (Cancer), Venus (Taurus/Libra). They are the two planets that represents women in astrology, a very caring and nurturing conjunction. It’s about your security too – emotional & financial. What’s changing or shifting for you? Where in these key areas is life stressful and you need to exit or let go? Hope that helps.

  6. I would love to find out where the triple conjunction lands on my birth chart, is there a particular software that allows you to do this or do I look at my natal chart and calculate? If so what do I calculate I just can’t seem to figure this out. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    1. You can draw up your natal chart for free at sites like astro.com. You need to find where Taurus ♉︎ is in your chart – I’ve added the glyph after the name. Then look for the house number. I offer free birth charts and guides to my weekly newsletter subscribers. There’s also an introductory video on how to read your birth chart so you can work with your astrology. If you’re interested, you can find out more here: Weekly. Hope that helps 🙂

  7. I have this conjunction conjunct my IC. May I hope to a relocation taking into account that I am looking to a job abroad?
    Thanks!

    1. Yes, Uranus conjunct the IC is often a time when you’re on the move. The Mars/North Node added to the mix makes things more urgent as if there’s a calling.

    2. mars uranus north node on the cusp of my 4th house. i got evicted on morning of august 2nd, out of the house where i lived since childhood.

  8. How long last the effects of this conjunction?
    Should we note these effects during August? Or can last more?
    Thanks a lot!

    1. Good question. Uranus turns retrograde on 24th August at 18° Taurus so that may re-trigger the triple conjunction. There may be some repercussions in May 2023 when Uranus is back at 18 Taurus. Hope that helps.

    1. The Moon is your inner needs, what gives you comfort, also a symbol for the mother in astrology. The triple conjunction feels disruptive and is linked to independence and freedom. These are likely to be key themes for you – you may know more what it’s about for you – also note what house the Moon rules, i.e. where you find Cancer – likely to be 3rd house, siblings, neighbours, community. Hope that helps.

  9. I have my Midheaven at exaclty 18 degrees in Taurus, with Leo ascendant.
    And transiting Jupiter conjunct my natal Chiron,2 degrees orbit. Like all people commenting above I am trying to get a clue on how to interpret this. I would greatly appreciate your insights.

    1. All the activity is happening on the point in your chart that represents your career, your future path. What’s changing? What’s breaking down, where are there breakthroughs? It can be an unstable time in your life when you have Uranus on the MC. Alternatively, you’re forging new trends and working with new technologies. It can go either way. Look also to where Venus is, your career planet – linked to art, fashion & beauty – noting your name! Hope that helps.
