The Nodes in the Houses: Gifts and Lessons

The Nodes in the Houses: Gifts and Lessons

The North and South Nodes are two points on the Moon. In astrology, these points are considered indicators of karma, lessons, and overall themes within the life.

The South Node marks what we already know. Some see this as lessons we have already learned in our past lives, so we don’t need to learn them again. The sign this Node falls in reveals the energies and knowledge already within us, but it can also reveal our weaknesses. For those who don’t believe in past lives, this is often seen as the lessons we learn quickly, or in childhood.

The North Node, also known as the True Node, marks the lessons we need to learn in this lifetime. The sign this Node falls in reveals what challenges and difficult positions we will be faced with in this life. This is a director, pointing us towards our ultimate destiny or purpose.

Because these Nodes are perfectly opposite, they will fall in opposing houses (ie. the 1st and the 7th, 2nd and the 8th, etc). You can find interpretations of the Nodes in the signs here.

​Today, I have found my life’s passion. reaching out my hand to others who are on or looking for the path of personal transformation. Nothing fills my heart more than to witness a soul releasing its pain, discovering it’s power and finding it’s purpose. That’s what happened to me and I would welcome the opportunity to witness it happening to you.

Through all of my senses. I see, hear, feel and know.
