Nodes in your birth chart are incredibly enlightening when you really want to understand why you act the way you do, and how your personality is shaped. They can be a window to your destiny that will provide invaluable insight into yourself – if only you learn how to read them properly. Hence why we're going to be diving so deeply into them. Listen, i get it, astrology is a vast subject and it can feel like you're stuck in space with no air at times. Which is why we tend to stick to the most self-care driven portions within your birth chart, also known as your natal chart.
There are two nodes on every birth chart: The North Node, and the South Node. Although they aren't actual physical bodies like planets, they still represent powerful forces that have an effect on us. They are asteroids in the sky but that doesn't make them any less important, in actuality, with just your nodes, you can paint a pretty clear picture of your life. The North Node shows your karmic path - what lessons need to be learned in this lifetime for spiritual growth and evolution of consciousness. It’s associated with self-care, renewal and refocusing energies outwardly towards realigning our higher purpose. The South Node is associated with our subconscious habits and patterns that are ready to be released, which can often be incredibly difficult to work through.
Understanding your nodes in your birth chart requires a deeper understanding of yourself - both past and present. It’s important to use them as catalysts for growth, rather than trying to “force” your destiny or avoid it altogether. Learning how these forces manifest in our lives allows us to move towards true liberation instead of feeling trapped by the weight of karma or destiny. By learning from the wisdom of the Nodes, we can make positive choices and create more meaningful, fulfilling lives for ourselves! Taking the time to become familiar with your Nodes in your birth chart is worth it – it can help you to gain an understanding of yourself and how the Universe operates around you. With this newfound knowledge and insight, you’ll be able to make conscious decisions that move you towards a life of contentment and wellbeing!

Your nodes are your map to help you make those decisions. Every 18 years our nodes come back to its original position in the zodiac which is why we have 18 year cycles of life transitions, endings and rebirths. So if you're feeling lost, exhausted or frustrated - take a look at your nodes to see what's coming up for you!
