The karmic nodes are the two points where the moon’s orbital path crosses the ecliptic. No worries if that doesn’t make sense. What I want you to remember is that they are always exactly opposite each other. Only by doing something completely the opposite of what you’ve been doing over and over again will you generate new growth.
The south node is a snap shot of relevant karma, it shows karmic patterns that cross many life times.
The north node is the goal of this life. It’s your soul’s north star for this incarnation and is always directly opposite the south node.
Let’s start by taking a look at nodes in the houses. These are super short descriptions, meant to get you started thinking of how the nodes are expressed here. As with all things, for a more complete understanding we look at the house, sign, degrees and aspects to the nodes.
There’s a balancing act with your nodes. You want to use the knowledge and skills of your south node (SN) to head towards your north node (NN).
The south node is NOT a disadvantage (cue rant music). It’s a rich history that you are using as a launchpad in this life.
