North Node is also known as Rahu in Indian astrology. As you know, the North node and the South node are opposites, and while the other is all about familiarity and comfort, the North Node forces you to learn new abilities and skills, to take on new qualities that help you feel personal success, happiness and fulfilment. It’s like a good cop – bad cop situation where the good cop is the South Node, while the North node is (you guessed it) the bad cop. And although the North node will always evoke in you some fear of the unknown,, that does not at all mean that the North node is bad for you.
The North node is like paddling a canoe upstream, while that is strenuous on your muscles, it also builds them and you build confidence and skill, but if you had remained at the riverbank, you would not had had the experience, or the skill, and you certainly wouldn’t have felt the lasting satisfaction that you got from the exercise. It is like the activation of your life’s mission, and it makes your occasional ‘trip’ back to your south node all the more worthwhile. Because with your North node, you will now have a point of destiny to follow throughout your life.
