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 Taurus Sign North Node is paired with a Scorpio 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 Taurus north node/Scorpio 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 past as he desperately dreams of the future.
All of us have our own set of visible (or invisible) struggles to work through -- obstacles that the Nodes of the Moon can help 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 Taurus Sign North Node/Scorpio 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 let go of.
The north node, on the other hand, represents the soul’s potential – the direction of the future...the behavioral habits that will lead to greater happiness...the kind of life that will be fulfilling on multiple levels.
Here are some Scorpio Sign South Node behavioral patterns -- patters that the individual must part with if he is to live an emotionally rich life:
Raging... fanatical... manipulative... withholding... secretive... too intense... loving chaos... jealous... possessive... revengeful... judgmental... caustic... distrustful... paranoid... intimidating.
Here are some Taurus Sign North Node behavioral patterns that the individual might find to be foreign at first, but ones that he will notice connect him to his true self and the kind of life his soul subconsciously needs:
Creative... builder... resolute... patient... finisher... earth-loving... sensual... warm-hearted... reliable... loyal... serene... home-loving... security-welcoming.
The journey from a Scorpio sign south node to a Taurus sign north node can be a trying one. But the promise it holds for the individual willing to step up to the challenge is equally great.
The Scorpio south node reveals a soul that has spent many incarnations dealing with power struggles, manipulation, sexual intrigue, turmoil, and chaos.
While unbalancing and terrifying, these life situations were necessary for the transformation that had to take place. Their powerful affects were needed to free the soul of outworn values so that it could proceed to create a new beginning.
As with all life-altering experiences, comes a gnawing sense of loss and bitterness. The individual is aware that progress has taken place yet somehow that understanding is not enough to quench the deep-seated desire to regain the security they once owned.
But no matter how difficult, move forward is what this individual must do. He must let go of his terrifying subconscious memories and instead refocus on building trust in life and the people in it.
He must let go of his Scorpion need for control and try to blend with his environment rather than try to manipulate it. Because if he continues to repeat these karmic tendencies, all he will do is destroy the very security he so desperately needs.
In this lifetime, belief in the earth’s abundance and its ability to give him what he needs and desires, is what he needs to develop in order to live a peaceful existence.
He must separate the past from the present and realize that his deep-seated fear of endless punishment is residue left over from previous lifetimes...a memory that now can and should be released.
His Taurus sign north node beckons him to a place of stability, contentment, and harmony – a place he needs to go if he is to live a happy, fulfilling life surrounded by those he loves.
Having said that, it would be a good idea to fill your (or your loved one’s) life, which ever one of you has the north node in the sign of Taurus, with as many symbolic representations of the Taurus Sign that you can find.
Surrounding yourself with
Taurus sign ornaments,
will remind you of the soul mission you’re on and your unique path to fulfillment.
Now if it’s your mate’s north node that’s in the sign of Taurus, 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 experiences when he realizes that he has found the person who really gets him -- a true friend...lover...and the irreplaceable soul companion he’s been searching for his entire life
