The North Node in Astrology
What is the north node in astrology and why is it so important?
There are two lunar nodes in astrology, the north node and the south node, the intersection between the ecliptic and the Moon’s orbit. The nodes are fictional points, not celestial bodies, but they are an extremely important in astrology.
The Moon’s nodes have to do with the spiritual journey of the soul, its past and future, the lessons it has learned and it is yet to learn. These points are especially important in karmic astrology (if reincarnation is something you don’t believe in, you can also treat the nodes as your past and future in this lifetime).
Let’s start with the north node. The north node reveals so much about your soul and its journey towards growth! This node represents the traits you want to develop in this lifetime. It shows where you can grow the most. However, this process is not easy at all. In the birth chart, the position of the north node often suggests challenges and struggles in the first part of your life (it usually gets better after the age of 30).
The south node, on the other hand, represents your past. If you believe in reincarnation, you can interpret the south node as your previous lives, but also your personal past in this life. The south node shows your karmic strengths. You usually excel at the things your south node represents, as you have a lot of experience with it. You are very comfortable here, but this doesn’t help you grow. This is why in this lifetime, you are supposed to focus on your north node (even though there is a strong pull to fall back on the south node).
The lunar nodes spend in each sign approximately 18 months. Their orbital period is 18,6 years. They are directly opposite each other and they are always retrograde.
In the birth chart, you can learn a lot about your karmic tasks by understanding your north node and south node. The lunar nodes’ house and sign are both very important (the house is more personal, but the sign is also telling). Make sure to take into consideration any aspects from the rest of the chart. Planets conjunct or squaring the nodes are significant.
