The north node represents what we need to explore in order to evolve, grow, and develop. It’s where we’re going and what we are growing into. It is our learning curve, what we came to accomplish, and what will help us evolve. If you believe that the meaning of life is to evolve spiritually, then the north node speaks to the meaning or purpose of life. Its sign placement indicates where we need to grow and expand in order to accomplish what we have come here to learn.
It’s not necessary to deny our karmic past represented by the south node, but to consciously evolve into the divine intention of the north node placement. When we make choices honoring the north node, we consciously aid our evolution. The north node is our life’s mission, and the sooner one consciously chooses to master what is required, the sooner life will become more “higher-purpose-driven.”
Alternately, if we rely on our south node skills, abilities, and ways, we’ll be mired in the past and fail to evolve. If we see someone has been “stuck” their whole life, it is worthwhile looking at their south node placement. Often they stay stuck because they’re choosing to repeat the same lessons from their karmic past over and over again.
