What is the South Node in astrology? The south node: Your innate gifts and past life.
The south node is the exact opposite zodiac sign of the north node. It reveals the gifts that you bring into this lifetime, your sweet spot, your comfort zone.
How do you know what your south node is? If you look at your birth chart, you will find a glyph (an astrological symbol) that looks like a horseshoe. That is the symbol for the North Node. The glyph for the South Node is an upside-down horseshoe.
What does node mean in astrology? 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.
Where is the South Node? Instead, they’re placed at the points where the moon’s orbit crossed the Sun’s path as seen from the earth at the time of your birth. In your natal chart, your lunar nodes sit directly opposite of each other. While the North Node determines your destiny, the South Node depicts your past lives.
