The nodes (south and north node) are two points in an astrological chart that possess priceless information about one's karmic past and soul-destined future. Calculated by using the birth data of the individual, the nodes symbolize the unique life path that one is on and can answer many questions about his own, as well as his partner's, inner struggles and desires -- answers that can transform not only his relationship but his life.
Since there are twelve signs of the zodiac, there are also twelve unique nodal positions -- each pair of nodes (north and south) representing two opposite signs of the zodiac. For instance, a Gemini Sign North Node is paired with a Sagittarius Sign South Node because they are opposites. And because they are opposites, they create a clear picture of the dualistic struggle that resides within the Gemini sign north node/Sagittarius sign south node individual.
Often, the individual is unaware of the war taking place inside, a situation that could go on for years. As time passes he is dumfounded by his inability to progress in life - professionally, emotionally, and spiritually. He doesn't understand why he keeps repeating the same mistakes over and over again and continues to dwell on the past as he desperately dreams of the future.
All of us have our own set of visible (and invisible) struggles to work through -- obstacles that the Nodes of the Moon can help us isolate and resolve while simultaneously freeing us to move forward on our destined path.
We all know that knowledge is power...and that's why I offer a bit of it to you...to give you the strength and courage you need to not only live, but thrive.
This week I'd like to begin with a brief overview of the Gemini Sign North Node/Sagittarius Sign South Node position.
To start, let's take a look at some keywords. These words describe the polarity between these two opposing signs and can offer you a glimpse of the soul journey that the individual with this nodal position is on.
Just remember that the south node represents old patterns of being - patterns that have accumulated over lifetimes that now need to be acknowledged and released. The north node, on the other hand, represents the soul's potential - the direction of the future...the behavioral habits that will lead tthe individual o greater happiness and the kind of life that will fulfill him on multiple levels.
Here are some Sagittarius Sign South Node behavioral patterns -- patters that the individual must part with if he is to live an emotionally rich life:
Preachy...restless...too abstract...outspoken...claustrophobic...impatient...unrealistic...tempered...afraid of commitment...overly expansive...irresponsible...impractical...too futuristic...too generous.
Here are some Gemini Sign North Node behavioral patterns that the individual might find foreign at first, but ones that he needs to aspire to if he is to connect to his true potential and the existence his soul both needs and desires:
Social...articulate...versatile...quick...clever...intelligent...reflective...gatherer and dispenser of information...self-expressive...open-minded...literary...curious.
The journey from a Sagittarius sign south node to a Gemini north node is not an easy one. But the promise it holds for the individual willing to step up to the challenge is equally great.
The Gemini sign north node reveals a soul that has spent many incarnations as a wild, self-righteous, and unrestricted entity; traveling the physical and spiritual plains on its own terms. As a result, this individual is still attracted to a natural existence and will go far out of his way to escape responsibility.
To the Gemini sign north node individual, responsibility represents restriction and restriction is synonymous with death. To avoid that imagined predicament, he rushes around trying to finish his chores as quickly as possible thinking that once he's done, he will be free to do as he pleases. Unfortunately, what he fails to realize is that this constant activity and lack of focus only strengthens the chains that he is so desperately trying to escape.
This individual enters this life innocently primitive and selfish, unable to relate to others and lacking the social graces needed for him to fit in. His memory of a life that included only him is still too fresh in his mind and prevents him from creating the very bonds he needs to survive.
For him, blending into society might be a painful transition, but blend is what he must do. He must learn the lessons of cooperation, sociability, and tact and understand that the negative behavioral patterns he shuns in others are simply reflections of himself that he refuses to see and accept -- a blindfold that he will eventually be asked to remove.
The Gemini sign north node will urge him to let go of his self-righteousness and show him the importance of considering another's point of view. It will ask him to exchange crudeness for refinement and teach him how to pay attention to his mannerisms, habits, and speech. His north node will be his guide, showing him the advantages of living in a civilized culture and allowing him to do just that.
At times, he might still feel a strong attraction towards all that is natural and primitive. Yet like a wild animal desperately trying to fight being tamed, he will undoubtedly wonder what it might be like if he were to surrender. And surrender to be tamed is what he must do if he is to live the gratifying existence he whole-heartedly craves.
Having said all of that, it wouldn't be such a bad idea to fill your surroundings with as many symbolic representations of the Gemini Sign as possible. Surrounding yourself with Gemini sign colors, Gemini sign fragrances, and Gemini sign ornaments will remind you of the soul mission you're on and help you find your unique path to fulfillment.
Now if it's your mate that has the Gemini sign north node, and you do that for your mate, well...that's about the greatest gift that you could ever give him/or her. Because there's nothing like the feeling one gets when he realizes that he has found someone who really gets him -- a true friend...lover...and the irreplaceable soul companion he's been searching for his whole life.
...that soul companion who is you!
Have an adventurous journey my friend!
