When Portuguese explorer Bartolomeu Dias reached Cape of Good Hope on 12 March 1488 he called it “Cape of Storms”. The cape was assumed to represent the place that parts the waters of the Atlantic from the Pacific Ocean. But to be precise: “the currents of the two oceans meet at the point where the warm-water Agulhas current meets the cold water Benguela current and turns back on itself—a point that fluctuates between Cape Agulhas and Cape Point (about 1.2 kilometers east of the Cape of Good Hope).” (from the wiki article) In the 5th century BC ancient greek historian and geographer Herodotus mentioned that the Phoenicians had already rounded Cape of Good Hope during that era.
The North Node (4°51`Aquarius) was moving in the first degrees of air sign Aquarius the sign of the sky, heaven, flying and sailing right to the south of the tip of Cape of Good Hope.
