The North Node in your astrological chart reveals a harmonic point of fulfillment. Many people still long for a way to identify their Life Purpose; that soul level mission that adds a reason for life on this earth. Isn't it truly amazing that a mathematical point derived from the relationship of the Sun, Moon, and earth reveals our karmic life purpose.
There are two nodes, the North and South, and they always travel in direct opposition around the 360 degree wheel of the zodiac. The placement of the North node, by sign and house reveals our mission – that which we came to learn. The South node, which looks like a cup, is a repository of our past – all that we know and find comfortable.
Vedic astrology illustrates the nodes as a dragon; the South node being the dragon's tail, and the North node the dragon's head. This Oracle Card image is that of the North node – the dragon's head. Here is a brief analysis of the lessons of the North node by sign.
If your North node is in Aries, your karmic mission is:
Taking care of yourself and responding to your inspirations. You must develop courage and learn to fight for what you believe in. You will be called to practice skills of political temperance, but you must do so in a manner that honors your truth.
If your North node is in Taurus, your karmic mission is:
Learn trust and practice generosity. You must balance the need for security with a fear of change. You are learning manifestation tempered with ethical practices.
If your North node is in Gemini, your karmic mission is:
Practice communication and sharing. You will learn to balance your words and actions. You are learning just how powerful words can be; and that you must fulfill the promises you make, ie, to ‘keep your word.'
If your North node is in Cancer, your karmic mission is:
Surrender to your need for home and family. You are learning about comfort and safety, and how to prioritize your loyalties. The values by which you gauge success need be know only to you.
If your North node is in Leo, your karmic mission is:
Own your personal power and surrender it to a noble cause. You may seek recognition, but you cannot ever really build a kingdom on it.
If your North node is in Virgo, your karmic mission is:
Purification. You are mastering the arts of health and detail. As a trouble shooter and ‘fixer', you are making things right while fulfilling the gift of the present.
If your North node is in Libra, your karmic mission is:
Trust in the power of relationship; both personal and professional. Partners are your teachers and you have come to fulfill or rectify past lifetime agreements.
If your North node is in Scorpio, your karmic mission is:
Channel the fire and Light of the Phoenix. You must overcome paralyzing fear and learn to take action, yet recognize self destruction and preserve your sanctity.
If your North node is in Sagittarius, your karmic mission is:
Seek the truth and follow your rainbow. Recognize, however, that Loyalty is your walking staff, and commitment is a meal upon which you can always rely upon.
If your North node is in Capricorn, your karmic mission is:
You deserve to have what you want and taking responsibility is the best way to get it. You are more than a sum total of your birth; your true birth right is grand and your mission is broad. Just don't take yourself so seriously.
If your North node is in Aquarius, your karmic mission is:
Know that ‘WE are all ONE.' Really, acting out does not make you special, and when ego gets in the way, the Universe steps up to remind you. You must temper personal will with Divine purpose and fulfill a social mission.
If your North node is in Pisces, your karmic mission is:
Surrender, let go and let GOD. You must do this while resisting the temptation to succumbing to darkness. Trust is your sword and faith is your shield.
