There are different names for the Dragon’s Head and Dragon’s Tail. Some refer to the Dragon’s Head as the North Node of the Moon, both implying luck. The Dragon’s Tail is also referred to as the South Node of the moon, indicating past life or restructure. The significance in each of these is the Dragon’s Head and Tail in one’s natal or birth chart indicates many things.
One is how the person is to learn, develop and attain in this life- time. Yes, I said this lifetime. Reincarnation is mentioned here. Like mentioned in the above paragraph, it gives the energy of luck. The other aspect to the Dragon’s Head is to know which house it resides in. For example, does it sit in the house of home and family or career area?
The Tail of the Dragon is where we came from in past life. It’s other name is karmic residue. It also reflects the type of energies, pat- terns or residual effects we might be carrying over into this lifetime. Much like a 401K rollover. Humor! The Dragon’s Tail can test us, be- cause even if it is subconscious we might be doing something that resembles sliding back to what is familiar or comfortable. The idea is to be challenged and move toward the Dragon’s Head for spiritual and soul growth and human evolution. Now wasn’t that a powerful statement?
Some of us are not content, but complacent. We get comfortable with the familiar. Can you see how some of the cycles or patterns of behavior can be brought into our lives as I mentioned in the chapter on patterns? As mentioned, the Dragon’s Head and Tail when we are born is giving us insight and clues as to where we came from, so to speak, in past life and where we are to head or aim toward in this life- time. Now, keep in mind that all planets are in motion. So every 18 months or so, the Dragon’s Head and Tail will move into two new astrological signs. Therefore, when we are born, we are given what is called our Natal Dragon’s Head and Tail. For example, The Dragon’s Head in Gemini and the Dragon’s Tail in Sagittarius. I will explain these more later on.
These are referred to as opposing signs. Think of it more as your car battery. You have a positive and negative charge on the battery. You need both to make the spark. With these signs, I tend to use the concepts of what gives us our Soul growth, change, life course correction, opportunities and challenges in life.
So we have the Dragon’s Head and Tail when we are born and every 18 months it goes into the next two opposing signs in the Uni- verse. What this means is that we need to take a look at where the Dragon’s Head and Dragon’s Tail are residing in this moment, to determine how it is affecting our world in a larger view than our own personal charts. Then we can ask, how or what areas of my life is this current Dragon’s Head or Dragon’s Tail affecting my personal chart? When I say current, where it resides today.
I will be forecasting on this a bit later and this will offer a great example of how this works and operates. Another very important element when forecasting or looking at the Dragon’s Head is to see when it last entered those two signs. This is significant, because when I give readings I will ask what was happening in your life 18 years ago. Yes, 18 years not months for this part. It takes 18 years roughly to make a complete revolution to come back around to the same two signs.
Now for me, thankfully I am old enough to look back on 18 years. So I can say what was happening on various levels of my life at that time. This information is relevant to the current meaning right now. It is also very insightful and helpful, much like a review process. It is like a gauging mechanism to see your own spiritual and soul growth.
You can also give yourself a litmus test, by asking these questions: What was happening during those specific dates of the Dragon’s Head and Tail? What areas of my life was it affecting? For instance, was I moving, in school, getting married and other similar type of life questions.
An important question is have I learned lessons from whatever was happening at that time period? I will actually share one of my examples of this in the forecasting chapter as it relates to a new Dragon’s Head and Tail change in the universe.
