What are my south and North Node? The south node reveals your past lives and the gifts you’ve brought in. The north node shows the new direction you’re learning in this lifetime. They are always in opposite signs and houses.
What is the South Node called? Vedic astrology calls the nodes the head (Rahu/North Node) and tail (Ketu/South Node) of the dragon and take a harsher view of the south node’s karma.
What does your South Node indicate? Our South Node represents where we’re coming from and what we’re bringing into this life. That includes lessons from our past lives, and thus, all the gifts and qualities that you’ve already mastered. The North Node, on the other hand, represents the path that you are growing into through this life. It’s your destiny.
What is your North Node? Unlike the other aspects of your birth chart, your north node is not a celestial body. Your north and south nodes are the points where the moon’s orbit and the plane of the ecliptic converge during the time you were born. Together, they tell the story of your soul’s journey through every life you’ve lived so far.
