Oner Doser – The Moon’s Nodes: The Soul’s Karmic Past and Future


The Moon’s Nodes are two points where the orbit of the Moon’s crosses the ecliptic ascending (North) and descending (South). These two points have are opposed to each other 180 degrees. For example; if the North Node is in 1 degree Aries, the South Node is 1 degree Libra.

The Moon’s Nodes can give us the answers for the questions “Why am I here?”, “What is my mission in this life?” and “Where am I heading to?” These are real pathfinders, which help us to find our path on this journey of life. 

The South Node is related with the past of our soul. Its sign, its house and its aspects inform us about our existing talents, habitual patterns, tendencies, attitudes that we are drawn automatically; the things which are easy to achieve and energy that we have cumulated until this life. The themes that are represented by our South Node are easy and secure for us however the universe asks us to go towards the themes that are represented by North Node. When compared with the North Node’s themes, the themes of the South Node seem more familiar to us and we are drawn towards it. A conscious awareness is needed for withdrawing from the features represented by the South Node. However, we should not leave them out totally; we should use these qualities as a tool while proceeding towards the North Node, in other words we should find the balance between these two. The qualities of the the South Node are the ones that we already have and that we do not need to develop anymore; getting the support of these qualities, we need to balance the two opposite characteristics of these two nodes. 

The North Node is related with the future of our soul.  Its sign, its house and its aspects inform us about which direction we should take, how we would achieve success and what our aim and mission in this life is. We find it difficult to canalize and direct ourselves to the themes that are represented by the North Node. We are not familiar with these themes however these are the elements that we need to add to our lives and a conscious awareness is needed to achieve this. When we achieve to integrate these qualities to our lives, we will feel spiritually satisfied. So, the sign the North Node is in, its house, and its aspects are highly important.
