One of the most important aspects I look at when reading a chart is the South Node and North Node. This tells us where we have come from and where we are going. The south node indicates the areas in our life we spend letting go of...often the area we feel defeated, yet, we keep going back to.
The North Node is the area we have to learn how to live. It is not familiar, but it is the energy that drives us forward into our future.
We begin to experience the power of our North Node after our first Saturn, it is a life long process. You will often have people come into your life that embody your North Node energy to show you how to live in it, walk in it and how to use this powerful, obsessive energy
When you look at your chart; look for what planets and houses that are conjunct your South Node; realize that this is the area that you may have had the most struggles and have had to leave behind, felt the most frustrated and had to learn to rise above.
Then, look at what planets and house conjunct your North Node. These are the areas that will empower your future, fuel your passion and set you on your ultimate path.
We often cling to our South Node energy because we are so familiar with it, but it only keeps us in a dysfunctional path to nowhere.
Learning to live out your North Node energy is a powerful journey. If you are under 35-years old, you will feel trickles of your North Node energy coming into your life, don't be afraid, it is gently guiding you across the bridge.
If you are on the other side, just know, it takes a lifetime to learn how to walk in your North Node energy, but as you embark this journey, you will finally find your purpose in this life. Release the past, and walk into your future. :))
Eunice Middleton has allowed me to use her chart as in example of how I see the south node/north node transition..:)) South Node in Saggitarius~North Node in Gemini.
Taking a glance at your south node/north node transition. You have made it through your first Saturn (Everyone enters their first Saturn from 28-30 years old, 2 1/2 year transit) and will be entering your north node energy, this is a journey that will take you into the rest of your life. With the north node in conjunction with your moon and 3rd and 4th house in Gemini, this could play out in a lot of ways, but first, we look at what you are leaving behind in your south node in Sag which is conjunct with Uranus in your 9th and 10th house.
I see that you may have had to move a lot as a child and possibly been exposed to a lot of different cultures. You have had a lot of different religious exposure and could have felt very detached and not able to be in one place, not having that solid feeling of home.
You are very intelligent, but now it is time to find a place to teach and with the North Node in Gemini in conjunction with your moon, this will be your soul's desire. Learning to narrow it down to what you are most passionate about (but still have a wide varity of attributes and talents to offer).
You will now be a teacher in your community and in your home. If you have children this could be an amazing opportunity to create a home-schooling program that many other mothers could learn from you. Or a home business that you create from home with all of the wisdom you have from your past. You have so much to offer, but you will finally feel that you have a community that you can be a part of.
I see you teaching other women, you have a deep understanding of the psychological issues the women deal with, and you are a healer. You understand people who go through abuse and you have the ability to create a sanctuary for women.
You have an uncanny ability to relate to others, you will begin to take on more of an image of a small town country girl that everyone wants to be around. You were born with the wisdom of a Guru, but now it is time to use that wisdom in your community...I definitely see writing, blogging, and networking. Being an Aries, your are a warrior/pioneer and feel the need to protect, a wonderful gift to use. You have a powerful calling, but this will be more hands on with the everyday women who surround you. You will finally have a place to call home, use your hands for healing, touch those around you. You have the wisdom, not it is time to teach others...
