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

The North Node tells you what you need to do to evolve into a more confident version of yourself. Meanwhile, the South Node represents and also tells a story of your past lives and how those experiences tie into the lessons you need to learn now.

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

The zodiac sign your North Node is in will paint a picture of what drives and inspires you. Looking at the house it inhabits further shows how the energy will be channeled. Finally, the aspects it makes to other planets can weave a story that can tell a lot about our current mission in life.
