The Dragon and the Beast (Axis of Extremes)
The Axis of Extremes is an extension of the Nodal axis. In this way we come to a full understanding of the totality of the Nodal Cross: North Node, South Node, Dragon and Beast. The North Node represents our personal life purpose, the South Node is our inherited backpack. The core creation of life consists of two poles that attract each other like magnets in a perpetual evolutionary dance: energy (or consciousness) and matter.
The Beast and the Dragon represent energy and matter respectively, each working to extremes in a process from primal energy to perfect form. Dragon and Beast pass on energy to both the North and South Node with angles of 90 between each of the four points. Together with the South and North Node they form the Nodal Cross. The Nodal Cross is an indispensable tool to combine the Lunar and Solar Axis. It gives a fuller picture of Diamond Astrology that consists of Four Cosmic Axes: Lunar Axis, Solar Axis, Nodal Axis and the Axis of Extremes (Dragon and Beast) The four poles of the Nodal Cross - as an evolutionary process to master matter - and the four poles of the Solar and Lunar Axes - the path to cosmic consciousness - offer a brilliant combination to interpret the chart to a 5D level.
