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 Scorpio sign north node is paired with an Taurus 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 Scorpio north node/Taurus 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 Scorpio sign north node/Taurus 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 Taurus 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:
Fearful of change…stingy…over-values or undervalues self…greedy…retentive…lazy…materialistic…jealous…stubborn…indulgent…opinionated.
Here are a few Scorpio north node characteristics that the individual might at first find foreign but eventually will need to acquire if he is to connect to his true soul potential and live the life he was meant to live:
The journey from a Taurus sign south node to a Scorpio sign north node will not be easy. But then again, neither is anything else in life that’s worth doing or achieving.
Obstacles are just strategically placed hurdles meant to remind us of our inner strength and courage. Therefore, as long as the Scorpio sign north node individual remembers to hold on tight to his willful power, he will make it through the transformation just fine.
The Scorpio sign north node individual has spent lifetimes accumulating and possessing people and things. Somehow the sole ownership of an item made him feel secure and stable. And if he couldn’t own it, then he couldn’t really enjoy it either.
In the current lifetime, the Scorpio sign north node individual continues to go after collecting all the same things. Yet now, instead of making him feel secure and stable, they begin to way him down like bricks tied tightly to a noose wrapped around his neck.
In this lifetime;
• He must learn to let go of old behavioral patterns and insistence on owning all that he desires
• He must understand that his Scorpio sign north node will require that find security within himself rather than in the abundance of all that he possesses
• He must realize that his habitual desire to accumulate will gradually continue to bury him in his own baggage
In addition, his soul will ask him to;
• Move forward and cut almost all ties to his past
• Let go of his need for ownership
• Believe in himself
• Walk barefoot into the future (not literally, of course)
• Find complete independence of thought and spirit
• Go through a 360 degree transformation of his life in hopes that he will finally be able to see himself at the deepest levels of his soul.
As previously mentioned, the journey will not be simple. But at the same time it offers the gifts of priceless wisdom, strength, and freedom to the one who accepts its dare. And having seen the Scorpio sign soul in action, such an offer is unlikely to be passed by, at least not without a wholehearted try. ;-)
Having said all that, it might not be such a bad idea for him to surround himself with people and symbols that can support his journey.
By surrounding himself with people who understand and symbols that exude the Scorpio energy, he ensures his own destiny by keeping his soul mission and path to fulfillment consistently in front of his eyes.
Now, if you’re reading this article and it's your mate that has the Scorpio 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 entire life. ...that soul companion who is you!
Have an adventurous journey my friend!
