Our sun sign represents our soul type. Our North Node, its highest expression. These are key placements in astrology that inform our Destiny. This year, on June 21st, when the sun and north node align, the door to our greatness will be open wide.
Each of our lives see-saws between fate and destiny. Our fate points to tragic circumstances and is decidedly not fun. A good amount of karma can be miraculously circumvented by taking refuge in the dharma, invoking our best self, and aligning with our true path and purpose. How do we recognize our true path and purpose? We’re not provided with a dossier at birth, but the Universe provides vital clues like a lighted walkway along a garden path at night. When people appear unexpectedly to help us with important projects it’s often a sign that we’re on the right track. Just like our Soul Number in Tantric Numerology, there is an astrological configuration that provides cogent insight into what our Destiny truly entails. It’s a shortcut to unveiling what we came here to accomplish, master, manifest, overcome, or resolve.
At the time of our birth, our magnetic psyche is criss-crossed by the pull of the planets and lasers of the stars. That configuration creates an energetic template that constitutes a script for everything that comes after.
Our birth chart features Lunar Nodes that represent the highest and lowest points of the moon’s orbit (“ecliptic”). The highest point—the North Node—guides us toward our destiny, and the lowest —the South Node—is our soul’s history.
Note that the Universe’s conception of our success may be very different from our ego’s. Some are meant to be in the public eye and rock the world, while others are meant to live simply and explore the facets of human interaction. Each person has a unique path. Either way, honoring our soul is key to successful living. We may have spent decades barking up the wrong tree. Knowing our nodes can provide the guidance we’ve been waiting for. Please refer to this chart to discover your North Node and read below about your soul purpose this time around.

Be the type of Teacher/Healer who elicits mainstream appeal without sacrificing quality or depth.
North Node Gemini
