What is Karmic Astrology? The Role of Lunar Nodes

Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, it is incredible the amount of insight you can get from a karmic astrology reading. In a nutshell, karmic astrology talks about the past and future, the transformation and evolution of our soul through the Self. By looking at certain aspects of your birth chart, it’s possible to gather information about who you were, what has prevented you from becoming a better version of yourself, and what you need to work on in order to self-actualize. Let’s recognize the value in this: such understanding can only improve the relationship you have with yourself and others.

One of the aspects we can look into to know more about your past and future through your birth chart are the lunar nodes. Lunar nodes are two imaginary points in space between the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth. These points are opposite each other at 180 degrees and are called North Node (also known as Rahu) and South Node (or Ketu). The former gives you information about past lives or your early years as a child or young adult. The latter offers you information about what you need to work on in this life as an adult in order to evolve and grow.

Since the lunar nodes are opposite to each other, each one of us will find a nodal axis in our birth chart. For instance, I have a North Node in Pisces. Therefore my South Node is in Virgo, the opposite sign of Pisces. My north node is in the first house, which rules identity and consciousness, and my south node is in the seventh house, which rules one-on-one relationships and marriage. For the purposes of this post, I’m not going to address the astrological houses these nodes can be found in, but that would give us further information about our path toward enlightenment.

Having a North Node in Pisces tells me that in my past life or early life years I had a tendency to overlook my relationship with the Divine or spiritual realm by being too analytical. This time around, and in order to fulfill my life’s mission, I must master the ability to balance both my right and left brain hemispheres. In other words, I need to find an equilibrium between thinking and feeling. This may require me a greater focus on spirituality and self-healing.

My South Node in Virgo indicates that my natural tendency is to be a perfectionist and that I can be self-critical. This hinders my sense of acceptance, self-worth, and self-love. It is no mistake that these have been recurrent topics on my blog. Having a South Node in Virgo is also usually associated with the tendency to overwork, and with the struggle to simply be still. I find this to be very true and, thanks to my life experiences, I have been forced to learn the importance of non-doing the harder way.

The Virgo energy on my south node provides some insight into why I struggled a lot in my childhood and young adulthood to accept and even realize my spiritual sight. I used to ignore my intuition all the time because logic and rationality were my comfort zone. This is the karma of having a South Node in Virgo. Whenever my intuitive voice would speak to me, I shut it down and called myself crazy. Over the recent years, I have learned to listen and follow my intuition as well as my other gifts.

There is much more to say about the Pisces/Virgo nodal axis, especially when we look at the astrological houses in which both lunar nodes are placed. If you want an Astro psychological reading of your lunar nodes, I’m offering an online service that gives you a report on your lunar nodes’ signs and houses.

  2. Thanks for your post and explanation of the north and south nodes. I learned about this from a past astrological reading. I was told, I was a writer/scribe who wrote about other people’s experiences and lives. I naturally brought my writing ability into this life but this time I need to write about my own experiences and share them. I find all aspects of astrology fascinating and am happy you reminded me of this. I will look over my past chart and reading again.
    Many Blessings,
