THE LUNAR NODES AS MERE DESCRIPTIONS
on September 24, 2015
The book gives the usual descriptions of the Nodes in Signs and Houses, but does not explain the reason for the Nodes in one's birth chart.
Simply put, the South Node is the activity, physical, mental, emotional, that you overdid in your past life and therefore, because we all have a karmic balance and survival mechanism built into our natures, we cannot overindulge in again. We will have to downplay this activity or interest in this life.
The North Node wlll indicate the opposite activity that we must do in this lifetime to balance out the overbalanced South Node activity. For instance, in the birth chart, the houses indicating career and home are opposite to each other. If we overdid the career activity in our past life, we will now find ourselves forced to focus our attention on the home (because now we will have severe problems there) and be unable to pursue a career as the major activity. In my own birth chart, for example, I overdid the career activity and wound up with Saturn in the 4th house (home) square the Moon (wife) in this life and so had to pay much attention to learning and developing this neglected area. I was unable to realize my (old) career ambitions.
