North Node and Lunar Nodes
To start talking about North Node, first we need to clarify what Lunar Nodes are. Lunar Nodes are aspects that scholars of Kabbalah and Karmic Astrology put a lot of focus on. They are also called “Dragon’s Head” and “Dragon’s Tail” and carry some information about our past and our future.
Lunar Nodes are imaginary points in the sky and calculated from the intersection of the arc of the Sun and the Moon. Since the cycle of the Moon takes about a month and the cycle of the Sun a year (in fact, the Earth cycle around the Sun), it is common for people of the same age to have the same Lunar Nodes.
Once you have discovered the North Node, you automatically know your South Node because the points are in exactly opposite directions. If you have North Node in Aries, you have South Node in Libra and so on. You can look for a symbol that reminds the symbol of Leo at your birth chart to find out yours.
North Node and its meaning
As we said, Lunar Nodes are important aspects because they give us a path to follow in the life we experience at the moment. The North and South Node serve contrary energies that must be worked on if we want to evolve during our existence.
As the name itself says, South Node means what is behind and North Node what is in front of us. In Karmic terms, South Node would be what we were in past lives and North Node what we should be today and tomorrow.
The relation between the Nodes is very close. If you have North Node in Aries, it means that in past lives you had Libra’s characteristics that were not well worked on in past lives. So now you need to find an aspect of Aries that will balance this flaw of Libra.
The North Node represents in a positive way what we should stand for in this life. Once you find out yours, take this opportunity to gain awareness of your mission and to develop some aspects you might be in need. At first, you can feel a little bit of discomfort, like every important change does. But once you manage that, you will feel that your life has a stronger purpose now.

North Node in Pisces: South Node in Virgo
In your past life, you were so skeptical that in this one you needed to have North Node in Pisces. Pisces is the sign of belief. They believe there is a lot upon us and are always trying to find a connection with the Divine. Do not be so perfectionist and attached to details, try to relax and be more surrendered instead.
