The Moon’s nodes are the two points where the Moon’s orbit crosses the ecliptic (the Sun’s path in the sky) to the north and to the south. These two points have an opposition of exactly 180 degrees. For example, if the north node is 1 degree Aries, then the south node is 1 degree Libra.
The Moon’s nodes give us answers to questions like “Why am I here?”, “What is my mission in this life?”, and “Where am I heading?” These real pathfinders help us to navigate through the journey of life.
The south node is related to our souls’ pasts. Its sign, its house, and its aspects inform us about our existing talents, habitual patterns, tendencies, inherent attitudes, the things that are easy for us to achieve, and the energy we accumulated before this life. The themes represented by the south node are easy and secure for us, but the universe wants us to move toward the themes represented by the north node. When compared to the themes of the north node, the themes of the south node seem more familiar to us, and we are drawn toward them. A conscious awareness is needed to withdraw from the features represented by the south node. However, we should not abandon them completely; we should use these qualities as tools while proceeding toward the north node. In other words, we should find a balance between the two. The qualities of the south node are those we already possess, so we do not need to develop them anymore. With the support of these qualities, we need to balance the opposing characteristics of these two nodes.
The north node is related to the futures of our souls. Its sign, its house, and its aspects tell us about which direction we should take, how we should achieve success, and what our aims and missions are in this life. We find it difficult to realize the themes represented by the north node. We are not familiar with them, but we need to add these elements to our lives, and a conscious awareness is needed to achieve this. When we manage to integrate these qualities into our lives, we will also feel spiritually satisfied. Therefore, the sign hosting the north node, its house, and its aspects are all highly important. Below, you will find further explanation about the north node in particular signs. There is also a table showing which sign your north node is in based on your birth date.
