The Lunar Nodes in Each Sign and the Enigmatic Law of Rhythm of Hermes Trismegistus
An Integration and Evolution Journey: Deciphering the Rhythmic Dance of Destiny and Consciousness
Today I want to share with you something I have always wanted to understand in an integrative way: the lunar nodes and the idea that we have to let go of the characteristics of the South Node (our comfort zone) to learn to use the characteristics of the North Node, the path of evolution.
Fundamentally, I have never been completely comfortable with this view. As I have come to understand a natal chart, I am increasingly convinced that it shows us an essentially integrated and balanced being. The imbalances we experience are due to our own limitations, which, through self-knowledge and 'trial and error,' we can transcend step by step.
Why have I always had reservations about the notion that we should leave behind the characteristics of the South Node to embrace those of the North Node? Well... More than once, I've wondered, what happens if my South Node is in conjunction with my Moon or Sun? Should I also renounce my lunar or solar qualities? Obviously, the answer is no. This has led me to believe that there must be a deeper way to interpret the lunar nodes in astrology. So… let’s go for it!
