Finding your purpose in life through the North Nodes. When I am doing Human Design Readings, I often get questions about purpose. Because of this I always pull North Node information for every session. The information about your North Node provides helpful guidance and insights – especially when it comes to understanding when you are staying in your “comfort zone” instead of moving towards your highest potential.

What is the North Node in Astrology ? 

  • In astrology, the North Node is also known as the True Node or the “Dragon’s Head”. It is an important point in the astrological birth chart that represents your  karmic path and spiritual evolution this lifetime. 
  • The North Node is always directly opposite the South Node, or the “Dragon’s Tail”. The North and South Nodes are not physical celestial bodies like the planets but they are calculated points in the chart based on the orbit of the Moon.

What Does the North Node Tell Us?

  • The North Node is about moving outside of our comfort zone and represents the lessons, experiences, and qualities that we need to develop and embrace in this lifetime. It is the direction we need to go that will bring personal growth and fulfillment. The North Node placement in the birth chart tells you which area of life and the specific qualities that you should focus on to experience spiritual growth.
  • The sign and house placement of the North Node provide insights into the challenges and opportunities that you may encounter during your life. The sign indicates the qualities or traits to develop, while the house represents the area of life where these lessons will be most prominent. For example, if your North Node is in Aries in the 7th house, you may need to develop independence, assertiveness, and courage in your relationships.

How to Work with Your North Node?

  • Because the North Node is often associated with new experiences, it is about stepping out of your comfort zone and embracing unfamiliar territory as you move through life. It is believed that by embracing the lessons of the North Node, you will realize your life purpose and experience personal fulfillment.
