Another compelling observation about the true lunar nodes in solar returns

In a previous post I wrote about my observation that in a large number of cases the presence of the Moon’s True Node in or very near its stationary phase in a solar return almost always heralded a year ahead characterized by major or dramatic changes  that would alter the life and daily routine of the native.  I liken this configuration to the Tower card in the tarot.

Today I read in the news that Tyler Skaggs, pitcher Los Angeles Angels, was found dead in his hotel room in Texas.  According to ABC News, “Police in Southlake, Texas, said officers found Skaggs when they responded to a report of an unconscious man in a hotel room around 2:15 p.m. Monday. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.”

Given the dramatic turn of events, I wondered whether the Moon’s True Nodes were stationary or about to change direction in his 2018 solar return.  Skaggs was born July 13, 1991, in Los Angeles, CA, time unknown.  Here is his sunrise natal chart with his 2018 solar return surrounding it.


At first glace, the Lunar Nodes in the 2018 Solar Return appear to be moving retrograde.  However, if we advance the time of the solar return just one hour (see chart below), we see that the Moon’s True Nodes were about to turn stationary at the time of his sunrise chart solar return.  If we had his actual time of birth, most likely the true nodes would have appeared as Stationary in the solar return.

It is also noteworthy that in his 2018 solar return, transiting Pluto (a signifier of death and lord of the underworld) is almost exactly opposite his natal Sun.

Advancing the sunrise chart solar return for 2018 just one hour reveals that the Moon’s True Nodes are stationary on the day of his solar return, heralding a year ahead of major and dramatic change.

    More to the point, the upcoming Full moon Eclipse conjunct Transiting Pluto is opposing Tyler’s Natal Sun.
