The Lunar Nodes, also called the Nodes of Destiny, provide a glimpse into your direction in life and what motivates you to reach your goals.

The North and South Nodes are linked and sit directly across from each other in the birth chart. Understanding both placements can give you insight into how to understand yourself better. 

Those with an Aries North Node crave independence but have to learn to let go of the Libra South Node tendencies to people please at their own expense.

Aries North Node traits 

The North Node tells you what you need to do to evolve into a more confident version of yourself. 


1. Confident

As the North Node develops, the native will learn to be self-assured and more assertive as they get older. Their character develops with time as this placement teaches them to take charge and fearlessly lead without relying on others.

Embracing their confident side allows them to balance the neediness their South Node can echo.

2. Independent

Aries is ruled by Mars, the God of War, so it is not surprising that those with this placement learn early on how to rely on themselves. They understand the value of having people around them, but they also know when to do things alone.

However, their South Node might still make them lean towards codependency, especially in romantic relationships.


3. Determined

Stubborn and a sign that does not give up easily, those with North Node in Aries will face challenges and obstacles without stopping. Aries does not see a limit and will continue focusing and striving to reach their dreams.

The South Node in Cardinal Libra can fuel this desire to climb to the top.

4. Selfish

Due to their fiercely independent nature, expect the natives with this placement to be more concerned with what they want, sometimes forgetting to think about what others close to them might need. They have no problem putting themselves first, especially if they have experienced betrayal.

Libra South Node traits

The South Node represents and also tells a story of your past life and how those experiences tie into the lessons you need to learn now.


1. Diplomatic

These people will want to strike a balance in situations that could be tense. Opting to bring about peace and not war, they will appease opposing parties in hopes of cooling down tensions.

The Aries North Node needs to learn how to incorporate this aspect when they feel stressed and challenged by others. Learning not to jump into every battle is something their South Node in Libra can help.

2. Patient

The South Node in Libra shows that the native understood the value of patience and diligence in a past life. As the North Node develops, the Aries traits might take over, making the native impulsive.

This aspect is an anchor because it can bring down the native's aggression to a calm level.


3. Codependent

As a sign ruled by Venus, the South Node will have a desire to form meaningful bonds that help their ego. Since this is a social sign, getting into relationships is easy.

However, the North Node will serve as a reminder that valuing themselves and not relying on a romantic connection to feel worthy will be more fruitful in the long run.

4. Trustworthy

Being trustworthy and reliable are positive traits that their friends will appreciate. South Node in Libra is there for those they love and respect. The North Node must understand that being loyal and reliable can strengthen their bonds with others, even when they feel they do not need others.

Balancing Aries North Node and Libra South Node

The native with North Node in Aries needs to express themselves more and leave codependent habits behind.


Aries is ruled by Mars and it represents passion and bravery, qualities that those with this North Node must develop to feel fulfilled. When they are younger, the native with this placement might feel fear or shame when it comes to self-expression. Accepting that they can shine might have been tough for them to embrace.

However, as they grow older and become more confident, they slowly break out of their shells. It means that they will not be as focused on developing partnerships. Instead, they will learn to appreciate who they are and find strength in themselves.

Having North Node in Aries means it is the native’s moment to step out of their comfort zone and embrace the spotlight. Although their Libra South Node might make them feel safer around others, developing their independent nature will boost their confidence as they grow and mature.


Trusting and loving themselves is also important. The North Node in Aries native is on a journey to discover self-love, hope, and abandon fear. Understanding that they are powerful, worthy, and confident enough to take on the world will help them break free from the South Node in Libra's codependency.
