Planetary Nodes of Mercury:  Inter-Relationship of Mercury’s North and South Nodes Thru Time

When one looks at the nodes of Mercury, quite similar to the nodes of Venus, we notice how quickly they move through the zodiac.  Especially relative to all planets outside of Earth’s orbit.  Like the nodes of Venus, the north and south node of Mercury also travels through all the signs of the zodiac each year, plus a tiny bit more of movement.

The question is:  Is there a larger pattern to the nodal movement of Mercury’s nodes, like there is with Venus. 
The answer: Yes, there is and it is quite similar as well.

First, here is the data:
Note, the conjunctions in aries and taurus occur as the south node conjuncts and moves ahead of the north node of Mercury.  The libra and scorpio conjunctions of the nodes occur as the north node of Mercury conjuncts and pulls ahead of the south node.

This was the parameters of the True Node site research.
Notice, like the Venus nodal conjunction cycles, the day of the conjunction is the day the sun is at the same degree.

The Venus cycle, with the available time frame, gave us an average of 113.33 years for a degree of forward motion of the nodal conjunctions.
The Mercury cycle, based on the above, gives us an average of 85.42 years for a degree of forward motion of the nodal conjunctions.
So, we see the Mercury Nodal Conjunction Cycles are quicker than Venus’s.
Based on a average # of years for 30 degrees of movement, Mercury’s nodal conjunctions would progress forward 1 sign’s worth every 2,562 years(approx.)

The clearest info I could get gives the transition from the Aries/Libra conjunctions into the current Taurus/Scorpio conjunctions in the year 455 AD. 
Based on all of this, here are the ‘eras’ for the nodal conjunctions of Mercury:

7230 BC - 4670 BC  Nodal Conjunctions of Mercury in Aquarius/Leo
4670 BC - 2107 BC Nodal Conjunctions of Mercury in Pisces/Virgo
2107 BC - 454 AD  Nodal Conjunctions of Mercury in Aries/Libra
455 AD - 3017 AD  Nodal Conjunctions of Mercury in Taurus/Scorpio


One piece which I’ve been considering is the meaning of the active sign in the polarity relative to which node conjuncts and moves ahead.
I do not claim to have the answers to this question, but for example if we are currently in an era where the Taurus/Scorpio archetype is active relative to the past and future mind of collective: Which sign is influencing the past and which the future?  Is there an emphasis? 
Based on the Taurus conjunction occurring every year when the south node of Mercury conjuncts and moves ahead of the north node of Mercury, I would naturally tie the influence of collective thought patterns, relative to the past to the Taurus archetype.
Then, of course, the evolutionary path of collective thinking would be symbolized by the Scorpio archetype since each year the north node of Mercury conjuncts the south node of Mercury and moves ahead of it in the sign of Scorpio.
This is my reasoning and intuition on this.

Next step would be to now view the past thru the addition of this lens as well is considering larger evolutionary patterns.

Hi Bradley- I've located what confuses me. I've been assuming all along that all planetary nodes are retro, but actually it seems the opposite is true.

The mean motions of the nodes of Mercury is direct, correct? Is this true for all planetary nodes?
Thank you,
Ari Moshe
