Hello
I've been using the True node of the Moon without giving it much thought. Does anyone use the Mean node? What are the arguements for using the Mean node?
Thank you.

Its pretty amazing how little discussion there is on this. I think its one of those Oh, go away annoyances. A few months ago I found that Mean seems to work better and have felt comfortable with it since.

The nodes arent actual bodies but mathematically calculated points. It so happens that these points have a wobble. If were dealing with mathematically calculated points with a small wobble, then a mathematical mean seems just as valid. I also sometimes have a wobble, but Im still going from point A to point B and am standing on the sidewalk and not in the street.

Thanks for your response. What you've said makes sense. When you said 'Mean seems to work better', were you taliking about in terms of natal astrology or horary?
