“Learning to chill out”
The Moon’s nodes are two abstract points formed by the crossing of the Moon with the ecliptic created by the Sun when viewed from Earth. We call these points north node and south node. The south node represents innate behavior patterns, personal attitudes that are naturally expressed. I see it as a door to the past, since the southern node connects us with characteristics of our ancestors that come to life in our current incarnation. I see the north node as the recipient of the wisdom of the south node. Its sign is ready to take an evolutionary leap, and through that expansion, it will provide the southern node with a platform that will help it fulfill its destiny. In this sense, the dynamics of the nodes is constant, like evolution itself.
The north and south nodes are always in opposite signs, which means (in Astrology) that they are complementary. With this in mind, the integration of the north node in our lives teaches us to complement (make better, more complete, effective) the qualities and capabilities of the nodal axis.
Why is it so difficult to integrate our north node? It is because it asks us to go to what we are not used to. Remember that the south node represents behaviors that we express with a certain mastery. We feel very safe in the south node’s realm. If it weren’t for the fact that the north node has a magnetic force that is impossible to resist, we would never have known that there is something beyond to look for.
A complete analysis of the birth chart is necessary to understand our evolutionary path. In any case, the signs where the Moon’s nodes are located can give us clues to where our present incarnation is heading.
When the south node is in Scorpio, it finds an intense and emotional water sign who wishes with all its soul to reach the soul of the other, and which does not stop until it is achieved. With the southern node in Scorpio, we have learned to merge with what crosses our path, activating an alchemical process that aims to destroy all the masks of the Ego. Left naked, half dead, we let go of what is useless while we are reborn as the Phoenix.
This energy, who loves emotional chaos, is hopelessly drawn to the tranquility, comfort, and stability of the north node in Taurus, an earth sign. Taurus loves what is predictable, security, what supports it. Taurus likes to live smoothly and be assured that it can enjoy the fruits of its efforts.
How do these two energies complement each other?
Both Taurus and Scorpio are fixed and feminine signs. They represent permanence and receptivity. Taurus is the surface of the Earth and everything on it. Scorpio is lava, the underground sea that, when it comes to the surface, destroys everything in its path and when it finally cools, it creates spaces that can generate new forms of life. With the south node in Scorpio, we are used to living long periods of devastation. This has brought us into contact with the most painful emotions of our being, and thanks to this, we have developed a very deep psychological understanding of our motivations. We are now ready to use our psychological capacity to investigate the simplest pleasures in life. The lava is already cold. The volcano is off for good. The grass has started to grow.
The north node in Taurus calls us to discover the internal resources we have to provide us with a smooth life. This is a new adventure in which we will be detecting our abilities and talents to materialize our goals. The soul wants us to learn to generate our own resources. And that we manage them in accordance with our personal values.
