What are North Node & South Node?

Also known as the Lunar Nodes, North Node and South Node are not planets but two mathematical points created to calculate eclipses. The nodes change signs about every 18 months, creating a collective soul purpose for those who are born under the same nodal influences.

The placement of the lunar nodes in a natal chart reveals the karmic imbalance and it is one’s life purpose to achieve the balance between the north node and south node. Your natal North Node represent the skills and qualities that you need to master, often quite difficult, as it is the polar opposite of your innate ability, which is represented by the sign and placement of your South Node in the natal chart –  A Taurus North Node will have (insert suitable pronounce) South Node in Scorpio. Simply put, your South Node is what you are good at, but it is also your comfort zone. Those who are brave enough to venture out of their comfort zone and enter the uncharted water of the North Node are those who will have a better chance to find spiritual and material success. Once you have integrated the best of both nodes, you will be equipped to uncover your soul purpose and become the best version of yourself.

Some may suggest that you need to throw away your South Node’s talents to embrace your North Node quality to find the life purpose. It is quite a misleading statement. The key here is to fuse together the positive traits of both sides, for example, Virgo South Node people (workaholics with great attention to detail) may feel unfulfilled in a corporate job even though they are very good at it, with their North Node in Pisces, it can be very scary for them to express themselves creatively at first because perfectionistic Virgos are highly critical of themselves and others, these people would much rather be the critic and sit in the comfort of their own desk than to be the artist themselves. Their life lesson here, however, is to embrace creative pursuits (Pisces) that required some sort of structure (Virgo) – instead of being a full-blown hippie – they are more likely to find fulfilment from careers like writing, composing music or becoming a Michelin star chef.

Natal South Node – The Comfort Zone

The South Node reflects your natural talents, the abilities that you are born with, you are likely to find your first success with these gifts in the earlier years in life. When you feel like you have hit the bottleneck in your career or life in general, it may be a sign that you are staying far too long in your comfort zone, and looking to the sign and house of your North Node can reveal a new direction for a breakthrough.

Natal North Node – Your Hidden Talents

The sign of your North Node is the exact opposite of the one of your South Node. It reflects the kind of experiences you need to develop to deal with your karma and to spiritually evolve, it is your ultimate soul calling to integrate both qualities. This journey is not an easy one, it is your learning curve. To reach your North Node, you need to get out of your comfort zone, and once you do, you will be amazed by the amount of satisfaction that it brings. It is your duty to activate your life. As soon as you connect with this route, your life will become more purposively driven. However, success may not come easily, even after you have made your way into the world through the path of your north node, you may find yourself returning to the South Node often like going home when you need a break or feel defeated, that’s ok, the key is to be persistence to in your journey to the north node.
