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
Pisces sign north node is paired with an Virgo 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 Pisces north node/Virgo 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 Pisces sign north node/Virgo 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 the comfortable but not necessarily healthy habits within your personality - patterns that have accumulated over lifetimes that now need to be acknowledged and released. The north node, on the other hand, represents your soul's potential - the direction of the future...the behavioral habits that will lead you to greater happiness and the kind of life that you will find fulfilling.
Here are a few Virgo sign south node traits that should be put to rest, sort of speak, if the individual with this nodal position is to live an emotionally rich life:
Judgmental, obsessive, too logical, melancholy, perfectionist, too analytic, fussy, workaholic, dissecting, disease-fearing, occasionally petty, tendency to blame, need to be right.
Here are a few Pisces sign north node characteristics that this individual might at first find foreign but eventually will need to embrace if he is to connect to his true soul potential and live the life he was meant to live:
Adapting, romantic, intuitional, devoted, forgiving, musical, spiritual, generous, charitable, emotional, visionary, introspective, poetic.
The journey from Virgo sign south node to a Pisces sign north node will not be easy. But then again, neither is anything else in life thats worth doing.
Obstacles are simply strategically placed hurdles meant to remind us of our inner strength and hidden needs. Therefore, as long as the Pisces sign north node individual remembers that his soul is creating the kind of life he needs in order to evolve as a spiritual individual, he will make it through the transformation just fine.
The following are some of the hurdles that the Pisces north node individual must overcome in order to live up to his potential;
He must learn to give up his rigid ways
He must learn at times to live without structure
He must develop faith in the unknown; the reality present beyond his five senses
He must free his desirous nature from the shackles he has imposed upon himself all in the name of respectability
He must open himself up to seeing the cosmic beauty in the world instead of, what he considers, dirt waiting to pollute his life
He must find a way to marry his physical expression of love together with the emotional
He must develop a sense of compassion for his fellowman
He must be willing to surrender his life to the benevolent knowledge and guidance of the universe
For only when the Pisces sign north individual masters the lessons mentioned above, will he be able to experience the existence he so desperately seeks.
The north node path is offering the Pisces sign soul an opportunity to develop wisdom, faith, and compassion. However, it is still up to the individual to decide whether he will accept that gift.
Having said all that, it might not be such a bad idea for the Pisces sign soul to surround himself with as many people and symbols that can support his journey. By encircling himself with people who understand him and symbols that exude the Pisces sign energy, he invites the support needed to follow his internal voice and path to fulfillment.
Now, if youre reading this article and it's your mate that has the Pisces sign north node, and you do that for your mate, well...that's just about the greatest gift that you could ever give him/or her. Why? Well, 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 entire life.
