As the Moon's North or Ascending Node pertains to manifest destiny both personally and collectively, while the Great Attractor is a higher source of energy and information- we would think this contact between the two is meaningful to the spirit of our times (Zeitgeist).
My understanding is that the Great Attractor is located around 14 Sagittarius, and the transiting Node does not reach that degree until late Dec. 2011. So this powerful alignment may actually be in effect through the end of the year.
Interestingly, the heliocentric Nodes of the planet Uranus are currently on the 14 Gemini-Sagittarius axis. And these Nodes carry the radical, revolutionary, and brilliantly innovative energy of Uranus 'the Awakener'.
Transiting Mercury and Venus are now moving through the aspiring sign of Sagittarius together, and they align with the Great Attractor (and the Nodes of Uranus) Nov. 13-14.
The Sabian symbol for 14 Sagittarius, "A vast panorama of sand and time is unfolding; the pyramids and sphinx in their glory rise before the eye." (Lynda Hill)

Sagittarius 14 suggests the challenge to understand deep mysteries, enigmas though extra-sensory abilities.
There are strong motifs concerning the throat, plus an uncanny affinity with all things feline.
The flow of sense through this series of Sagittarius degrees suggests an acute awareness of chthonic realms... the realms of the dead. This is not necessarily a 'dark' vibration though, but it does suggest something is 'present' that is hidden. You could simply be especially suited to pick up information , messages, and feelings from extra-ordinary realms if you have a placement in Sagittarius 14."

"Galaxies dot the sky like jewels in the direction of a mass so large it is known simply as the Great Attractor. The galaxies pictured above are part of a cluster of galaxies called ACO 3627 near the center of the Great Attractor. Previously, this cluster of galaxies, also known as the Norma Cluster, was largely unstudied because dust in the disk of our own Galaxy obscured much of its light. The Great Attractor is a diffuse mass concentration fully 250 million light-years away, but so large it pulls our own Milky Way Galaxy and millions of others galaxies towards it. Many of the galaxies in ACO 3627 are slowly heading towards collisions with each other."
