26 Nov El nodo sur y los visionarios (P. Sanchis)
Hace poco, traduciendo a Hermann de Carinthia, me encontré con estos pasajes muy interesantes: «(Dux) cum cauda, controversiae et incantationum, praesertim si Mercurius testatur«.
«Dux cum Saturno, Mercurio respectus, aut cum Mercurio, Saturno respectus, cogitationes incantationesque, sicque adustus. Nec aliter in terminis Mercurii aut Saturni, de demoniis prodit.»
En pocas palabras atribuía las «incantationes» (rituales mágicos) al nodo sur y su conjunción con el regente (de la cuestión en este caso), sobre todo si interviene Mercurio, También atribuye esas «incantationes» a la combinación Saturno-Mercurio con el regente. O incluso a los términos de esos planetas.
Como es tan raro encontrar algo «jugoso» sobre los nodos en astrología occidental, me interesó mucho el pasaje. Es evidente que los nodos son puntos de energía «especiales». Y el nodo sur es el más complicado, por su cerrazón mental, criticismo, y su relación con hernias, heridas, pus, envenenamiento, etc. Ahora bien, también tiene fama de ser muy bueno para lo espiritual, lo místico, pero de una forma peculiar, fuera de la aceptación social, con un cierto carácter marginal.
Me intrigó pues el tema y busqué cartas de personajes visionarios o con un sentido místico más peculiar, fuera de la norma de su sociedad. Pensé en Alistair Crowley, y, a partir de allí, mirando en qué categorías estaba clasificado, Astrodatabank me remitió a esa selección. No me servían todos, porque algunos eran simplemente místicos cristianos, y yo buscaba algo más marginal: gente con experiencias «especiales».
Los parámetros eran:
-Verificar los nodos (sobre todo el sur) unidos al regente natal o a Mercurio, o en el término de Mercurio.
-Mirar si los nodos estaban en el eje I-VII (personalidad) o III-IX (religión)
Pongo abajo los personajes de esa lista y su tema. Con la biografía que da Astrodatabank en inglés (indicado en cursiva).
American theosophist, esoteric astrologer and author. Unhappy in youth, she broke away from her early environment when she was 22. She married Walter Evans, an Episcopal rector, and had three daughters with him. While studying the occult, she became an evangelist and social worker. In 1919, she made contact with «the Tibetan;» two years later she founded her Arcane School. Her second marriage was to Foster Bailey. They organized the International Goodwill Movement together and, by 1939, had centers in 19 countries. Bailey wrote 30 metaphysical books on ancient teachings.

El nodo sur está en la casa I, en término de Saturno.
British-Indian social reformer and feminist at the forefront of liberal movements for 60 years. Her family background was genteel, though her father was from an impoverished branch and died when Annie was only five. Deeply religious as a child, she longed to serve humanity with some sort of glorious martyrdom. She was married to a dour Anglican clergyman, Frank Besant, in 1867 which was apparently a type of martyrdom in itself; the marriage lasted for six years. Leaving him at age 27, she had an alimony income of 110 pounds per annum, a comfortable if not extreme fortune. Taking up the worthy cause of birth control, Annie was arrested and tried in 1877 on a morals charge for her publication written with Charles Bradlaugh, «The Fruits of Philosophy.» The litigation cost her the custody of her two children and her alimony. An attractive, feminine woman, she held a fiery sword in her public demonstrations.
Annie met Mme Blavatsky in the spring of 1889 and was greatly taken with her and with the doctrine of Theosophy.
From 1907 until her death, Annie served as the President of the Theosophical Society in India. She took the young Krishnamurti under her wing in 1909 and nurtured him as the New Avatar, the Messiah, until he broke with the society in August 1929. Annie loved pomp and ritual and occult ceremonies, and kept opening new chapters and new societies within Theosophy. On 1/11/1911, she founded the Order of the Star in the East with the 16-year-old Krishnamurti as the official head. In spite of her living link with the Mahatmas, the society was fraught with intrigue, spiritual competition, power-struggles and scandals.
In 1922, Besant arrived in Ojai, CA with Krishna and his brother Nitya, who had TB, believing the warm dry air would help the youth. It is written that Krishnamurti experienced a kundalini awakening in August 1922. He remained in Ojai when Annie went back to India but they retained a deep affection. When Krishna finally broke with the Theosophical society in 1929, Anne was nearly completely senile and never realized that her cultivation of the Matreya had been denied by the embodiment himself. When Krishna visited her for the last time, early in 1933, she hardly knew who he was, and she died on 9/20/1933, Adyar, India. After 27 years as president of the Society, she was succeeded by George Arundale.
El nodo sur estaba en I
Russian spiritualist and mystic, the founder of the Theosophical Society. Her personal history changed frequently with a number of fanciful and glamorous versions but she was certainly a keen reader and writer and an accomplished pianist. The daughter of minor Russo-German aristocrats, she married Nikifor Blavatsky, vice-Governor of Yerevan in the Caucasus on 7 July 1848 when she was 17 and he, over 40, and fled from him a few weeks later. From then on her adventures – and her stories – changed often. She spent many years traveling the world in a mystical search for answers, eventually meeting two ascended Masters, Morya and Koot Hoomi.
Heavy-set and morbidly obese by the end of her life, Mme HPB, as she was known, had magnetic eyes and crinkly hair. She smoked incessantly and talked incessantly in a guttural voice, often witty and vulgar. She cared not a hoot for convention and was humorous, impulsive and warm-hearted.
After reaching the U.S. in 1873, she met Colonel Henry Steel Olcott in 1875; together in New York City, they founded the doctrine of Theosophy. She wrote the huge volumes of «Isis Unveiled» in 1877 and «The Secret Doctrine» in 1888. In February 1879, they moved to Bombay to set up chapters of the Society in India.

He said that the Messiah has been living in London since 7/19/1977, giving him direct telepathic messages.

Nodo sur en I en término de Saturno.
Polish Roman Catholic nun and mystic whose claims of receiving apparitions of Jesus Christ inspired the Roman Catholic devotion to the Divine Mercy and earned her the title of «Secretary of Divine Mercy».
Throughout her life, Faustina reported having visions of Jesus and conversations with her, of which she wrote in her diary, later published as The Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska: Divine Mercy in My Soul. Her biography submitted to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints quoted some of these conversations with Jesus regarding the Divine Mercy devotion.
At the age of 20 she joined a convent in Warsaw, Poland, was later transferred to Płock, and then to Vilnius where she met her confessor Father Michał Sopoćko, who supported her devotion to the Divine Mercy. Faustina and Sopoćko directed an artist to paint the first Divine Mercy image, based on Faustina’s vision of Jesus. Sopoćko used the image in celebrating the first Mass on the first Sunday after Easter. Subsequently Pope St. John Paul II established the Feast of Divine Mercy on that Sunday of each liturgical year.
Faustina died at the age of 33 on 5 October 1938. The Roman Catholic Church canonized Faustina as a saint on 30 April 2000, considering her a virgin and mystic. She is venerated within the Church as the «Secretary of Divine Mercy».

Nodo sur en III.
Siendo el nodo sur un significador tan peculiar, no parece descabellado pensar que, cuando esté en el eje I-VII o III-IX, si tiene además una relación con Mercurio (aspecto o término), el nativo tenga una forma diferente de pensar. Y una mayo sensibilidad a ciertas energías que canalizará de forma mental.
El tema está allí y merecería un estudio más profundo
