Astrological Ramblings

**In this post in the series, we will take the House that the North Node falls in out of the equation and just focus on what it means to have your North Node in a specific sign (and what it means to have the South Node in the polarity sign). Usually with things having to do with the Nodal Axis (and growing into our North Node), a catalyst occurs in our lives that edges us out of the comfort of the South Node and into the uncharted territory of the North. This catalyst could be something major and life changing (such as a death, marriage, or divorce), or even something much more minor. Something will kind of shake us internally, saying “Wake up, fucker. You’re supposed to move beyond this,” whatever the “this” in the situation is. Once this waking up occurs, you will begin to move towards the North Node. Though, in all my years of study, this period of waking up usually doesn’t occur until the person’s first Saturn Return, or after it.** North Node in Cancer/South Node in Capricorn: If your North Node falls in Cancer, this makes you North Node mission all about being of support to others and accepting that same support in return, learning how to be vulnerable, emotional and sensitive (and coming to terms with this side of yourself), and home/domestic life & family. With your South Node falling Capricorn, in a previous life/lives, you were probably in control of your emotions and […]
One of the most common questions that I get asked by people when doing readings is something along the lines of “what is my purpose here in this lifetime?”/“What am I supposed to do with my life?” One of the best guidestones for answering this question is to look at the placements of the North and South Nodes of the Moon in the natal chart. The North Node is what the soul wanted to evolve into during this incarnation, the qualities that it hopes/hoped to develop (or needs to develop), while the South Node, directly opposite the North Node, shows different traits and qualities that we have brought with us into this lifetime from past incarnations. These are usually traits that we cling too, even if they don’t really serve us anymore. Since the South Node shows the traits and qualities that our souls are familiar with, we are usually very comfortable hanging around our South Node (and would probably be fine never leaving, hahaha!). However, the purpose of our souls in every incarnation is to actually learn something, to transcend and evolve into something else. To move away from the South Node while keeping the very best from it, and taking those best traits forward towards our North Node. As uncomfortable as it may be, if we never leave the comfort and familiarity of our South Node, we will never accomplish the evolutionary process of growing our soul into our North Node’s Soul Mission. A bit of pertinent information: […]
