North Node Conjunct Midheaven Natal

It is important to note that angles and fictional points don’t have their own energy as they are not planets, and this interaction is not as strong as in the case of conjunctions between planets.
The north node conjunct Midheaven natal aspect suggests a person who has to define his or her ambitions to live their purpose. This conjunction doesn’t make you successful on its own, but there is a strong desire to accomplish great things. You are motivated and as you grow older, you focus more and more on self-realization.

In the first part of your life, your family is a more determining influence. What you learned early on is hard for you to detach from, even if it blocks your growth.

However, you can grow in the future by finding out who you are and what you are meant to accomplish.

Understanding your south node can help you work through any issues related to your ancestry or family problems and early conditioning that hinders your success in the present.

Meaning of the Midheaven in Astrology
What is the Midheaven all about in astrology?
There are two angles particularly often mentioned, the ascendant and the Midheaven. (You can learn more about the angles in the natal chart here). They are the pillars of the natal chart.
The Midheaven, abbreviated as MC (Medium Coeli, Latin for middle of the sky) is the point of the sky that was at the highest at the time of your birth, as seen from the place of your birth.
In some house systems, the Midheaven is the cusp of the tenth house. It is connected with your public image, your career, and profession. The Midheaven describes what you grow towards throughout your life. It is more expressed in the second part of your life.
The opposite point of the Midheaven is the Immum Coeli, abbreviated as IC.
The North Node in Astrology
The north node is one of the lunar nodes. There are two of them, and they represent different sides of the same thing. They are connected with the growth process of your soul, the journey through reincarnation. The north node and the south node are essential in karmic astrology.
The south node is associated with your past (and past lives, if you believe in reincarnation). It shows what is familiar to you and where you are coming from, but here you can’t find room for growth.
The north node shows your future direction. The sign of your north node tells which traits you need to cultivate to grow. The house of your north node refers to the life area where you can expect life lessons.
The lunar nodes are the intersection between the Moon’s orbit and the ecliptic. These are fictional points, they are not astronomical bodies and they don’t exist in reality. However, this does not make them any less important, and the Moon’s nodes can contain important information in your birth chart.
