North Node ~ Life’s Purpose: The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” ~ Tenzin Gyatso; The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet
“The North Node points our the best areas for us to direct our talents and our wills.
The North Node shows the area of gifts. It represents destiny. It is directly opposed to the South Node which is much more serious and restrictive. The North Node represents where we benefit from good work done in past lives and how that assists us in the here and now. The North Node is the place in the chart where life becomes easier. It acts like a karmic Jupiter where a doorway opens and suddenly you are where you need to be.
When The North Node card presents itself, you can be assured destiny has a place in your situation. Through many life lessons, you are about to arrive at a place for your highest good. Your life is expanding and opportunities pour in swiftly, catching you quite by surprise. This card also represents past life memories and karmic connections.
You may meet people whom you have known over many past lives, perhaps in a soul family where bonds form very quickly. You are taking on a larger view of your life, which not only emphasizes your talents, but aligns your talents with like minded souls. It is a fortuitous time to begin a privately owned business or other professional venture that will bring in extra finances. Whatever this venture may be, fun, creativity and optimism, will be a part of it. At this time you will feel less limited, and your goals and plans will have far-reaching potential.
Keep in mind, the lunar nodes always bring shifts and changes. For instance, a relationship with someone who has ‘destiny’ spelled all over him or her, may suddenly walk into your life. If so, this relationship will start rapidly and be life-altering. One job may end swiftly and you will find yourself in a much more suitable position. If the energy is used correctly, it will promote greater optimism and prosperity. This means finances are also likely to increase.
This energy is now telling you that the schooling part is over for now, lessons have been learned, and you are now to act on these lessons toward a greater destiny. At this time, it is evident where you need to go and where you need to be.
As the soul’s messenger, the appearance of the North Node card in a spread indicates growing into what is called the larger unknown, meaning you are moving toward a point that promises greater fulfillment. The nodes are karmic; therefore the lessons are not easy ones. Matters will develop suddenly but there is still work to be done. Luck is on your side with an opening toward greater things. Karmic lessons learned and processed bring fulfillment and happiness.”
