  Astrology: Lunar Nodes.
The lunar nodes, north and south, are not planets.
Lunar nodes are points that mark the intersection of the Moon's orbit around the Earth with the ecliptic.
In general, however, the north nodes is viewed a point of opportunity for growth and development, while the south is thought to represent karmic repression or tendencies that restrict growth.

 Encyclopedia: Lunar node
The lunar nodes are the orbital nodes of the Moon, that is, the points where the orbit of the Moon crosses the ecliptic (which is the apparent path of the Sun across the heavens against the background stars).
The descending node is the point in the orbit of an object where it crosses the plane of the ecliptic from the north celestial hemisphere to the south celestial hemisphere in the direction of motion.
The ascending node is one of the orbital nodes, a point in the orbit of an object where it crosses the plane of the ecliptic from the south celestial hemisphere to the north celestial hemisphere in the direction of motion.

 LUNAR CYCLES -- 1999   (Site not responding. Last check: )
I have used the astronomic almanacs to compile the geocentric longitudes of the lunar apse (indicated by perigee) and the lunar node (indicated by the ascending node) for 1900 thru 1999.
The line of intersection of these two planes is the lunar node, one end of which is known as the ascending node (where the Moon crosses the plane of the ecliptic from south to north) and the other, the descending node (where the Moon crosses the plane of the ecliptic from north to south).
By contrast, the lunar node (line of intersection of plane of Moon's orbit with plane of Earth's orbit) rotates counterclockwise in the plane of the Earth's orbit and moves 360° in 18.6 yr (the lunar nodal cycle).

 Lunar node   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The lunar nodes are the points where the moon's orbit crosses the ecliptic.
Usually only the North node is marked in astrological charts, as the South node is by definition always 180° removed—i.e., located at the exact opposite point in the chart.
Solar eclipses occur when a node coincides with the new moon; lunar eclipses when a node coincides with the full moon.

 Lunar Nodes | How to Interpret the Lunar Nodes in a Birth Chart - I | Rudhyar Archival Project | Astrological Articles
At the North Lunar Node, the Moon passes from the hemicycle of south latitude (i.e., south of the plane of the ecliptic) to that of north latitude; and the opposite occurs at the South Node.
Thus, the North Lunar Node represents the point of intake of spiritual cosmic energies; and it was called the "Dragon's Head" — the nodal axis being symbolized by a dragon.
The South Lunar Node was the "Dragon's Tail." From a more strictly biological and functional point of view, the North Lunar Node refers to the mouth of an animal and the South Lunar Node to the organs of evacuation, which means both the anus and the procreative organs from which the seed goes forth.

 A Catalogue of Eclipse Cycles   (Site not responding. Last check: )
As the character of a lunar or a solar eclipse also strongly depends on the solar anomaly, many of Van den Bergh’s cycles were chosen to approximate a whole number of solar years in length.
Rules the regularity of lunar eclipse tetrads (four successive lunar eclipses that are all total and occur at intervals of six lunations) and solar eclipse duos (two solar eclipses at an interval of one lunation).
The change in lunar anomaly is too large for the cycle to be useful in predicting the character of solar eclipses.

 Astrology: The Lunar Nodes - the north node and south node and Astrology
Lunar nodes are points that mark the intersection of the Moon's orbit around the Earth with the ecliptic path.
The North Lunar Node is the point at which the interception is made while the Moon is ascending from the south to the north.
The north node is viewed a point of opportunity for growth and development, while the south is thought to represent karmic repression or tendencies that restrict growth.

 Kollerstrom's Newton's Lunar Theory in STS@UCL
A lunar theory started with five mean motions, for the Sun, Moon, lunar node, lunar apse and aphelion, as linearly time-dependent functions moving around the ecliptic.
Finally, from the node's equated position one obtained the 'reduction', to convert longitude positions from the plane of the lunar orbit to that of the ecliptic.
The new lunar equations are the second, third, sixth and seventh, with the annual equation as the first and the Variation as the fifth.

 Geniet: Lunar declination and azimuth
When the sun is around the lunar node, the lunar perturbation changes only very slowly due to the lunar phases (some 0.1', with the maximum at quarter moons).
When the sun is 90° of the lunar node, the lunar perturbation changes slowly but a little bit more than the sun near the lunar node (some 2.6', with the minimum at new or full moons).
The major perturbation differance is seen between the sun is near a lunar node and the sun at 90° from a lunar node (with a period of ~ 0.5 ecliptic year ~173.31 Days and maxima at quarter lunar phases and minima at full/new lunar phases).

 Lunar nodes - AstrologyNotes
The lunar nodes are the points where the orbit of the Moon crosses the ecliptic (which is the apparent path of the Sun across the heavens against the background stars).
The North (or Ascending) Node is where the Moon crosses to the North of the ecliptic; the South (or Descending) Node where it crosses to the South.
According to Rhetorius of Egypt, the North Node had a positive influence if it was in aspect to one of the benefics (Jupiter and Venus), while the South Node would cast a favorable influence if it was in aspect with either of the malefics (Mars and Saturn).

 The Lunar Node in your Horoscope
The Lunar Nodes are the points at which the Moon's orbit crosses the ecliptic.
However, since the two nodes are 180º apart, any aspect (apart from the conjunction) which has an effect on one will have a similar effect on the other.
Traditionally, astrologers used the mean Lunar Nodes, which moved along the zodiac at a constant rate (one complete circle every 18.6 years).

 Astrology on the Web: The Moon's Nodes
The North Node, the Dragon's Head, is called the ascending node, because it marks the point where the Moon crosses the ecliptic from southern to northern celestial latitudes, and the South Node is called the descending node, marking the descent from northern to southern latitudes.
The Moon's Nodes mark the points where the path of the Moon's orbit around the Earth crosses the path of the ecliptic (the apparent path of the Sun and planets around the Earth) as viewed from the surface of the Earth.
There is no doubt that this elevation of the Nodes to planetary status is justified, for experience shows that the movement of the Nodes has a very significant effect on human life and on the destinies of all beings who dwell on the surface of the Earth.

 THE LUNAR PERIGEE-SYZYGY CYCLE FOR 1998:   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The motion of the lunar apse through the various lunar phases establishes the perigee-syzygy cycle, which is the coincidence of a syzygy phase with a perigee position.
In this paper, I review some of the lunar cycles that affect the amplitudes of the astronomic tides, give the details of the 1998 perigee-syzygy situation, present the lunar setting of the great coastal storm of 05-08 March 1962, and close with a few speculations about the possible importance of lunar cycles.
Whether the lunar perigee-syzygy cycles exert any other effects on the Earth apart from those related to the amplitudes of the astronomic tides on the surface of the ocean remains to be determined.

 The MOON
This is due to the fact that the lunar orbit is slightly elliptical in nature and also because it is tilted by 515 to the ecliptic.
Most of the lunar craters are very old and formed perhaps between three and four-and-a-half billion years ago, and it is likely groups of craters was formed in the several impact eras during the formation of the Solar System.
The lunar surface is also covered by layers of micrometeorites and dust to the depth of between two and eight metres, other places maybe twenty metres thick on the Moon.

Solar, Lunar and Planetary Ephemerides from the Almagest
The mean motions of the Sun, the Moon and the planets adopted in the Almagest Ephemeris Calculator correspond exactly with Ptolemy’s mean motion tables and the corrections for their eccentric and epicyclical motions are modelled according to the luni-solar and planetary models discussed by Ptolemy in his Almagest.
For lunar phases, go to the lunar position module (after inputting a first estimate in the calendar date module) and home in to a true luni-solar elongation of 0º (New Moon), 90º (First Quarter), 180º (Full Moon) or 270º (Last Quarter).

 PDS Geosciences Node Data and Services: Lunar Prospector
Lunar Prospector (LP) was a spin-stabilized spacecraft, operating in a 100 km circular, polar orbit around the Moon during its Primary Mission in 1998.
The mission ended on July 31, 1999, when the spacecraft was targeted to impact a crater near the lunar south pole to try to vaporize part of the suspected water deposits.
The science goals of LP were to map the Moon's surface composition and its magnetic and gravity fields, to determine the frequency and location of gas release events, and to search for polar ice deposits.

LUNAR routes have a limited life time and need to be re-established at regular intervals.
The corresponding LUNAR system parameter has been set to 3 seconds i.e., a data route is in use for 3 seconds before it is replaced by another newly constructed one.
LUNAR implementations may reduce the life time of transient entries further based on the number of packets or bytes they have processed.
