New and full moons near the nodes will be eclipses.
The two points of intersection where the plane of the orbit of the Moon crosses the plane of the ecliptic. There is a mean value or “true” value. It’s a matter of debate which is the more accurate. The node moves backwards, or retrograde, around the ecliptic completing the whole zodiac in just over eighteen years. The mean node is always retrograde, the true node moves direct occasionally as if it’s wobbling along. This motion is due to a combination of forces. These occasional forward movements can be significant for progressions.
North Node: Benefic/Jupiter, what you do not know are/should be moving towards
South Node: Malefic/Saturn, what you have mastered and are/should be leaving behind
