The Lunar Nodes, also called the Nodes of Destiny can 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. 

The North Node tells you what you need to do to evolve into a more confident version of yourself. The zodiac sign your North Node is in will paint a picture of what drives and inspires us. Looking at the House it inhabits also shows how the energy will be channeled.


Meanwhile, the South Node represents and also tells a story of your past lives depending on the sign and how those experiences tie into the lessons we need to learn in this life. 

Finally, the aspects it makes to other planets can weave a story that can tell a lot about our current mission in life. 

Those with the North Node in Taurus strive for a stable, comfortable life which requires letting go of the intensity and emotional upheaval the Scorpio South Node indicates.

Taurus North Node traits

1. Distrustful

The native needs to learn how to trust others and abandon their fear of being betrayed. The South Node might encourage them not to reveal who they are, and to always be on watch, which is fine but, occasionally, they need to let their guard down since not everyone is out to betray them.

2. Perfectionistic

Those with North Node in Taurus are demanding. If their work is not up to their standards, it can frustrate them.

Having a South Node in Scorpio means that these natives want perfection. They like to see results and might put too much pressure on themselves. They must remember to trust what they do and focus on what they can accomplish.

3. Devoted

When they have people around them that they love and can fight for, their devotion is limitless. North Node in Taurus should appreciate their ability to love unconditionally because it aligns with their purpose: to love and care for others freely.


4. Stubborn

The bull in this sign is still stubborn and cannot be tamed. North Node in Taurus channels their Scorpio South Node by not giving in. They must understand that compromises must be made at times and that listening to other people is important before letting their uncompromising nature ruin good friendships.

5. Critical

They like to judge and critique others. At times they could also be their own worst critics. The South Node in Scorpio is a perfectionist, and the North Node needs to understand that they do not need to be critical of everyone and everything.

Scorpio South Node traits

6. Vengeful

When their trust has been betrayed, these natives will feel passionate about it. As a water sign, their emotions will make them feel more hurt than the average person. They need to learn not to take everything to heart. If a relationship or friendship does not work for them, move on.


7. Loyal

Natives with this placement are extremely loyal and caring, which is why they do not handle betrayals well. Their caring nature and their concern for others could make them feel hurt when they are wronged. They need to channel the North Node's compassionate side to make deeper bonds.

8. Emotional

The South Node in Scorpio will feel their emotions deeply. It is a sign ruled by Mars, making them more intense when they eventually express themselves.

In their past life, the native probably held their anger and hurt within. Now, they will learn how to manage their emotions in a controlled way because of the North Node’s more patient nature.

9. Controlling

This is a placement that likes to take charge and control any situation. The North Node will encourage the native to learn more about how to work well with others and to be less independent and more trusting when dealing with others.


10. Ambitious

With the South Node in Scorpio, the native is a goal-driven planner. They know how to work hard and make practical plans that will help them in the long term.

The North Node in Taurus can occasionally feel demotivated and work less, but their South Node keeps them occupied and ready to go.

Balancing Taurus North Node and Scorpio South Node

Those with the North Node in Taurus must learn to love themselves more and understand their worth. To be more merciful, trusting, compassionate, and caring are the destiny goals for this sign to feel fulfilled. They should embrace their independence in certain situations and not focus on pleasing people.


Controlling their emotions is a necessary lesson for them as well. Because of their assertive South Node in Scorpio, they will tend to be vindictive. Instead of revenge, they should embrace love. Resorting to being more diplomatic and less vengeful will help them feel more liberated from their South Node.

Once they understand their sense of worth, develop their confidence, trust others, and incorporate love in their lives, the North Node in Taurus will feel comfortable enough to show the world who they are without putting up the walls their South Node in Scorpio is accustomed to.
