“Sometimes a planet or a node is very close to the cusp of the next house. Some interpretations say they are “technically” in the next house. Let’s say the ascendant is 20º Aquarius and the north node is 18º Aquarius. How would you interpret it because having a planet or a node in the 12th house is different from having it in the 1st house. Thank you very much!”
I have several planets on the cusps of houses. I see them active in both houses. For example, I have Uranus on the cusp of the seventh and eighth house.
I partner with eccentrics. I partner within minutes of meeting someone. I have married and divorced in the space of 3 weeks… I’ve married on April Fools Day. I’m a total commitment phobic. Matter of fact, I called the deacon to cancel my wedding, the day before I was to be married in the Catholic church. I was already married, canceling my second wedding to my husband! This is textbook seventh house Uranus.
However, I have also crossed a picket line to have sex in an rent-by-the-hour adult motel when I was seventeen. That’s a pure example of Uranus (rebel) in the eighth (sex).
Considering this and the fact the other planets on the cusps of house in my chart also function this way, I would read that node in both houses. In the example given with the node in Aquarius, cusp of the first/twelfth, you would have to assert (first house) your independence (Aquarius) via service (twelfth house) to humanity (Aquarius).
Anyone else with planets on cusps? How do they play?
