The North Node in Astrology
The north node and the south node are also called the lunar nodes. You can also come across them as Rahu and Ketu, or the Dragon’s Head and Tail. The Moon’s nodes are not existing celestial bodies, they are the points where the Moon’s orbit intersects the ecliptic.
The Moon’s nodes have strong karmic connotations. In karmic astrology, they are associated with past lives. If you don’t believe in reincarnation, you can analyze them as the first part of your life and what you learn as you mature and grow older.
The south node is connected with your past, while the north node represents your future. They are directly opposite each other in the natal chart: if your north node is in Scorpio, your south node is at the same degree of Taurus, and vice versa. The lunar nodes stay in the same sign for approximately 18 months.
