Journey To Thirty: North Node
I have been around astrology my entire life. A lot of people don’t know about my life, childhood and things I have grown accustom to simply because I don’t trust a lot of people. Something I grew up having to learn and accept. Too many times, in my past, I have shared a piece of myself to someone who I would later regret and this forced me to be less open with strangers. But yes, my mother is gifted. Not only does she read tarot cards but she is also Claircognizance and Clairaudience, meaning she can not only hear her spirit guides but she knows things before a person tells her. It is a gift that has been passed down to her from ancestors of long ago. It is easy to assume you know all about a person by what they choose to share with people. And it is usually those assumptions that make fools out of people. I have been in touch with the metaphysical world since I was a little girl. I have always been told that I am of an old soul, and that I have lived many, many lives. I am not afraid of that, in fact, I have always been intrigued by knowing what my past lives were and how it affects me today. So I went back to something that has been around for a very long time and discovered more of myself than I have ever known. In this “Journey to Thirty”, I am working on learning more about myself, as a person, a woman, and a mother. So when I do start to prepare myself for the next chapter of my life, I can approach life as I should.
The North Node and South Node on your Astrology birth chart are the most important things to look for if you are interested in learning what your soul wants to learn and experience in this life time. The North Node tells you what you want to do differently in this life time from what you did in the previous lives, whereas the South Node tells you about your traits in the past lives. I discovered that my North Node is Aries and my South Node is Libra. It doesn’t mean I was a Aries or Libra in my past lives, but it does tell me that there were things that I carried on in this present life and I have made a request to myself that there are changes that I must make. Or I will repeat the same lessons in each life until I make the changes that my soul urges me to. Some people don’t believe in reincarnations and some do. I happened to be the latter, and when I read the patterns of the Aries/Libra North/South Nodes, I learned that these traits couldn’t be more true.
Some of the things that I learned that I must release in this lifetime are:
- Hiding out in partnerships
- Taking the comfortable path
- Avoiding challenges
- Being the Peacemaker
- Making Compromises
- Putting others first
- Being Passive-Aggressive
Some of the things that I learned that I must embrace in this lifetime are:
- Stepping out as a leader
- Prioritizing your own goals
- Being comfortable alone
- The rewards of risk
- Fighting for your beliefs
- Expressing anger in an open and healthy manner
While I was reading about myself, I also discovered that I will be approaching my first Saturn Return. In December of this year, I will have my first Saturn Return, which is when the planet Saturn makes a full complete orbit around the sun. The Return of Saturn is like the welcoming committee. Welcoming you to a more “mature level” of your life. The window of this return is usually between the ages of “28-31”. Which to me makes so much sense, now that I have embarked on this new journey of mines, mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally preparing myself of getting older. Since my Saturn is in Sagittarius, there will be times that I would look into and possibly live by other cultures. Which is something I actually love, because I have studied other cultures for as long as I can remember. I also read that during my Saturn Return, It would probably be a great time to live abroad. In my previous post, I shared my Bucket List and all the cool places I would like to visit, seeing as I haven’t travel much in my life. “Higher education is governed by this sign and house: you’re an eternal student of life. Your Saturn Return could be a great time to go back to school for that graduate degree or special certification. Your career could involve traveling, teaching, or publishing.” Amazing!
Back to the North Node and South Node. I read that as I would grow older, I would be more determined to reach my North Node in Aries, which will make me more assertive, independent and full of life. Something that I knew deep down inside I needed to be more of and practice more. In my previous lifetimes I gave the responsibility of my own life to other people, letting my personal/business partners make all the decisions for me. Now I live this life to be an individual and stand on my own two feet. Circumstances in this lifetime will conspire to force me into making decisions of my own with little or no help/advice. I read that until I begin work of the spiritual or psychological of myself , I will ALWAYS look to other people for their opinions about me. I will think that what other people want is what I will want and I will try to make myself happy by doing what I see others do. Having Aries in North Node tells me that I still have a Past Life habit of seeing both sides of every issue. Which is true. Being an Aries in North Node also tells me that I hesitate to take on Leadership roles. I am a team player and I give and expect respect as a team player. Something that I must (and will) change now. In my previous incarnations I approached the world through my mind. It is stated that I came into this lifetime with a well-developed intellect and have the capability of deep thought. I am to not only carry on my past life habits of deep thinking but to also act and exert my personal force into the world.
Socrates, Descartes, Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung are all individuals with the North Node in Aries placement. Socrates and Descartes are the two most IMPORTANT philosophers who ever lived. Sigmund Freud was the father of psychoanalysis and one of the 20th century’s most influential thinkers. And Carl Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and founder of the school of analytical psychology. He developed the concepts of the extroverted and introverted personality. (More about in the next post) Careers fit best for people of the North Node in Aries placement is said to be Fashion Design, Artistic endeavors of all kinds, Editing, Publicity and Sports. Another thing that Aries North Node people may have an issue with, something I know I most certainty have an issue with, is the never-ending search for the perfect mate. The feeling of completeness that we spend our lifetime looking for can only be achieved individually. I am open to admit that the “If only I can find the perfect man, that will give me the perfect life, and I will feel complete“. But it is said that once Aries North Node people go in their own direction, the right people will be drawn into their lives to support them. It makes a whole lot of sense. Since I took the initiative to purchase my own domain for this website, I have had opportunities from all over falling into my lap. IAmMeganAmbers.com will be 1 years old in July and I am so happy and proud over all of the wonderful things that has come from it. However, as happy as I am over where my career is now going, I still look for love in all the wrong places. I love Love. I love being in Love, I love looking at people in Love. I am just a Lover of nature. Aries North Node people want to experience all of those things, Happiness, Harmony, support from that one special person. But in order for us to achieve that, we have to be our own partners and lovers. Aries North Node people have many past lives of supporting others. When I had a past life regression reading done, I was told by the psychic that I was a nurse during a war and my husband died due to injuries he suffered during the war. And my only mission was to prevent other women and children from suffering the same fate as I have. It is believed that in many incarnations Aries North Node people were housewives, secretaries, counselors, and assistants. The “behind the scenes” who gave others energy and support. Which is the number one reason I actually wanted to be a Fashion Designer instead of a Model, a public Relations Specialist instead of a Actress. I want to be that person that makes everything move smoothly behind the curtains. I never had the urge or passion to be anything that involved being in front of the spotlight. Aries North Nodes are here to learn about selfishness, in past lives they already know about selflessness. Aries North Nodes need a grounded and structured existence to enable their message of love with the world. If we limit the ways we express ourselves, we will miss the boat.
There is so much information about the nodal signs and what our mission in this lifetime is. I am more than grateful of the things that I am learning about MYSELF. And I encourage everyone to go out and discover themselves, no one should know you better than you do.
