What is Draconic Astrology?
Your draconic chart
represents a lot of things. It’s karmic, spiritual and unconscious,
pertaining to the soul and the soul’s desire, linked to destiny, fate
and soulmates. Some think of the Draconic chart as the true purpose
behind the soul’s intentions.
Draconic astrology is derived from
the True Nodes of the moon. Instead of starting at 0 Aries at the Vernal
Equinox, 0 Aries begins at the Moon’s North Node. If you were born with
the North Node at 0 Aries, your Draconic and Natal charts would be
identical. The Houses, and Planets in Houses remain the same, but the
signs, degrees and degrees in the houses can change drastically.
the North Node, a Draconic chart will tell you about where you’re
headed, if you choose to reach out, and like the South Node, it will
tell you about where you have been, what’s comforting, familiar and
secure. It’s said that as a child you were more your Draconic chart than
Natal, as you were closer to your soul and true personality. It also
has connections to reincarnation, the thought that your soul will carry
it’s Draconic chart with it to each person it visits throughout your
multiple lives. It can also explain attraction you cannot see in normal
synastry and comparison.
A Draconic chart will represent deep
values, belief patterns, individual purpose, meaning and clarity. It’s
less characteristics and personality traits, and more higher ethics and
the soul. Draconic placements indicate soul qualities and suggest the
ideal the soul wants to attain in the world, as well as areas of growth,
and who we subconsciously dream of becoming. The Moon of the Draconic
chart is also said to represent your ‘true sign’ and the barest form of
who you really are deep inside, whether you understand/know it or not.
sign still applies to it’s planetary meaning, but we view Draconic
signs a little differently, turning their power inward and forwards. The
Draconic chart is sensitive to transits and can be progressed,
pertaining to life-changing events and encounters that we aren’t
consciously aware of, such as someone accidentally being in touch with
our Draconic inner qualities and guiding our lives. These events are
thought of as ‘spiritual prompts’, guiding inner impulse to the
The Draconic chart is best understood in comparison to
the natal chart, as it interacts as two parts of your being; active and
unconscious (Though Draconic astrology acts on a much deeper level than
the subconscious persona chart characteristics of each planet)
and Opposition aspects and where they fall when the two charts are
compared are important. Through Draconic charts we can discover that
those closest to us can be acutely aware of our soul’s purpose.
(Amplifying the weight of advice coming from those closest to us. They
may be more aware of what our soul and true selves need much more than
we are consciously aware of.)
Some identify heavily with their
Draconic aspects, while others don’t, showing us who is more in touch
with their spiritual side and who isn’t. In the many layers of the
Horoscope and personality, Draconic may represent the inner most layer,
the one that shines through when everything else is peeled away.
The Draconic sun can tell you who exactly you want to be, and what traits and paths in life you wish you
could follow. For example, my Draconic sun is in Cancer, and represents
a lot of the emotional vulnerability, trust and security I deeply
desire and wish I could apply to my life, but can’t as I’m not
completely in touch with this side of my personality – rejecting it in
fact, as guided by my natal chart.
The Draconic Moon is who you
truly are. (as Draconic is based on the Moon’s True Nodes). You can call
it your ‘soul sign.’ You may be a Sun Libra in your daily life, but
your soul sign may be in Taurus, representing your soul’s true desire
and true driving purpose. A more free spirited person who subconsciously
strives for complete security.
The Draconic ascendant differs
from the Natal Ascendant in that it represents our ‘intuitive identity’
rather than our ‘outward identity’. The Decan your Draconic Ascendant is
in is important, as it can be heavily influenced by the sign next to
it. Think of your Draconic ascendant as your ‘soul’s mask’.
Draconic midheaven speaks of super consciousness, and the soul’s true
quest, rather than our career paths and online persona, as the Midheaven
is usually spoken of.
When you were born, you were your
Draconic self. Your spiritual self, before the world and your Natal
Chart shaped you to be who you are today. What you go through as a
person decides how in touch you are with your Draconic chart, or how far
you drift from it. Life may have stripped you of it, and made you fully
your Natal self, or it may have driven you back to your soul’s
spiritual values, and carved you into a more rounded person, in touch
with your true self.
Both your Draconic and your Natal are truly
you, as we are all a combination of things, layers upon layers and more
than one person. A Draconic chart, especially in comparison with your
Natal chart can help you find who you truly are.
