About Lunar Nodes

The position of the lunar nodes, from each planet and each house, gives a direct glimpse into how we have lived out our past lives (Ketu) and how we are being called to fulfill a more balanced vision ourselves (Rahu). The nodes are key to learning and understanding the particular facets of our consciousness. The old interpretations of the nodes are outdated and in need of upgrading to be valid in our current age. A thorough analysis of how Rahu and Ketu practically relates to our life experience reveals a crystal clear map of Self-actualization, should we choose to follow it.

The position of the nodes by house and (tropical) sign, reveals the specific issues and growth potential our souls have chosen to attend to in this lifetime. The South Node is a store house of information related to the karmas we have hyper focused on throughout all our past lives. This can often be referred to as our "black hole", where we get stuck in the past, and where we retreat to when we feel uncertain. The North Node is the balancing point, the area of greatest development and potential. It is also the area of greatest uncertainty, because it is a frontier that our souls have never truly considered, but dearly long to explore. The North Node represents the deepest and most profound desires that, if actualized, can center our awareness in an abiding sense of balance and accomplishment. Growing into the North Node, shines the light on the shadows of our fears, and reveals that which we are truly capable.
