…I’m your density… !
~ George McFly
I want a clever futuristic kid with an inventor sidekick arranging my hook-ups, lol.
Instead, it looks like I’m gonna have to pack up my North Node of Destiny and lug it into the future like everyone else.
South Node indicates where you have already been.
North Node indicates where you are going ~ your destiny.
The lunar nodes are the orbital nodes of the Moon, that is, the points where the orbit of the Moon crosses the ecliptic. South Node is always opposite the North Node in the natal chart.
North Node is known as the dragon’s head (Caput Draconis, or Anabibazon).
It is considered benefic, Jupiterian in influence. (expansive)
South Node is known as the dragon’s tail (Cauda Draconis, or Catabibazon).
It is considered malefic, Saturnian in influence. (restrictive)
If you have South Node conjunct a planet in your natal chart, it will be a place you will feel past karmic ties – work the energies of that planet – metamorph it in order to move toward your future, the North Node. North Node influences generally begin to kick it into high gear in the late 30’s early 40’s.
Unless you know Marty McFly, then you got a leg up.
If you have a planet conjunct the North Node it is an immediate tip-off to what your vehicular transport into the future will be. Mercury – communication, Venus – creativity, Mars – athletics, that’s of course, very general, but you get the idea.
Direct contacts are your first clue, then look to where North Node lives by sign and house, and the planet that rules that house.
For instance, I am North Node Aries with 11th house Mars in Sagittarius quintile Uranus, Mars trine Saturn Rx in the 3rd. Astrological writing.
North Node traits to develop
Aries or 1st house : trailblazing, self-reliance, personal ego
Taurus or 2nd house : self-worth, patience, boundaries
Gemini or 3rd house : communication, thinking, curiosity, trading ideas
Cancer or 4th house : empathy, nurturing, expressing feelings
Leo or 5th house : taDA ! it’s me, enthusiastic creativity, fun, willpower
Virgo or 6th house : organization, routine, analyzing details
Libra or 7th house : diplomacy, balance, cooperation with others
Scorpio or 8th house : awareness of power, merging, catalyst for change
Sagittarius or 9th house : explore world & ideas, philosophy, trust in higher power
Capricorn or 10th house : self-control, discipline, goal setting, commitment
Aquarius or 11th house : unique viewpoints, equality of people, worldview
Pisces or 12th house : imagination, mysticism, cosmic connections
South Node is familiar, easier – the worn groove, been there, done that.
North Node is the path you have to bushwhack – infinitely more rewarding !
If you meet someone with North Nodal contacts to your chart look to the energy connection to see where you both will benefit.
For instance, Mars on your North Node would inspire you to action in some way, Pluto would completely change your life for the better….
If you meet someone with South Nodal contacts to your chart, you have work to do with this person that was not completed in your last life. The energies will need working through until they are either released or metamorphosed so you can move into your North Node future.
I met someone who had Jupiter smack on my Aries North Node.
Obviously beneficial. North Node AND Jupiter.
I learned (Sag/Jupiter) astrology by studying in order to write (Saturn trine Mars quintile Uranus) his natal chart. I taught him (North Node on his Jupiter) about the spiritual side (Sag is my 12th house sign) of space objects.
Find and fulfill your destiny~
