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.

What Can Numerology Say About Your Psychology?

Numerology is the science behind the meaning of numbers. It’s an ancient practice and, according to it, each number holds a specific vibration or energy signature. This idea was carried by Pythagoras and his followers, who believed the universe could be explained by numbers and that each number would have a nature of its own. Pythagoreans saw number one, for instance, as the representation of unity, and the origin of everything. They also posited that even numbers had female energy and odd numbers masculine energy.

What is Numerology? The Meaning of Numbers 1-9

According to Pythagoras, each number has a nature, or vibration, of its own. Modern science has already shown that every manifestation has its own wavelength, a vibrational or electromagnetic signature that can be measured by numbers. In total, there are nine distinct vibrations, and Numerology works with such a system by attributing numbers to letters, which in turn have corresponding sound vibration and form.

What Does Your Life Path Number Say About You?

I got into Numerology in a funny way. It was the year 2015 and it started with the odd experience of seeing 11:11 on the clock all the time. There was also a weird experience that expanded my curiosity about numbers: I was coloring mandalas on a terrace when I noticed an intermittent car horn honking sound in the distant background. There is nothing strange about cars honking around, but my attention got caught by it because the sound seemed to occur in exact intervals of time. So I did a brief experiment and I started creating timestamps, one for each emerging sound. The result is visible in the picture below.

From 11:15 to 12:00, I registered the same sound every four minutes. At the time I didn’t think about it, but between 11:11 and 11:15 there is also a four-minute interval. What are the odds? If you’re a mathematician, let me know. Anyhow, that’s how I started to wonder more about numbers and their meaning. The Life Path number is just one of the different aspects of numerology that I stumbled upon and which I bring now to you in this blog post.

The Life Path number is calculated with the full birth date of a person. It is said to be the most important number in a numerology chart as it describes the nature of someone’s life journey and the core of his or her personality. The Life Path number ranges from 1 to 9. This means we need to break down the numbers when they are double digits. We add them until we end up with a single digit.

For instance, my Life Path number is Six. What does that mean? According to numerology, a Life Path number 6 represents someone who is nurturing and who has a natural tendency to take care of others. Number six also represents someone who isn’t able to be comfortable while others are suffering. With strong parenting instincts, people with a six in their life path number value home and family, and they like to make their space comfortable, loving, and safe.

In relationships, they oscillate between being very critical and ‘blind’, meaning that they either have very high standards regarding their relationships or that they may put people on such high pedestals that they even refuse to see their human flaws. Sixes are usually good teachers, caretakers, and compassionate leaders. Self-care is a must for their health and wellbeing.

Numerology can give you plenty of information about yourself based on your name and birth-date. This constitutes your “Birth Code” and it can give you psychological input about your character, your talents, and the most favorable ways to express them. I offer 3 types of numerology chart reading.

3 Life Lessons From Eat, Pray, Love

The other week I reviewed one of my non-fictional favorite movies. It might have been the third or fourth time I watched it, but it is amazing how we always find different nuggets of wisdom each time we watch or read something again. Elizabeth, the main character, has a story that always resonated with me. At first, I didn’t know why exactly but over the years I have gained clarity and insight into my own behavior and feelings around relationships.

The Book
Buy it here
The Movie

In the movie, there is a line that reasonably describes the relationship between individuals who have what Ross Rosenberg calls “Human Magnet Syndrome”. According to this condition, we either have a positive or negative charge that makes us feel attracted to people who display the opposite force. Those who are oriented toward the needs of others are negatively charged, while those who are oriented toward their own needs are positively charged. They attract each other mostly through an unconscious process and they often lock themselves into a relationship from which they feel they can’t resist or break free.

In this type of relationship, individuals have no conscious intention or choice over their mating preferences and decisions. They are ruled by the push and pull magnetic dynamic that such a connection gives them, becoming blind to potential problems and already existent red flags. This is likely the number one reason why unhealthy empaths tend to feel attracted to narcissists, and vice-versa. These individuals are highly compatible but they can never become a fully functional and healthy couple as the relationship brings a lot of suffering and dissatisfaction.

The book and movie Eat, Pray, Love offers us a good overview of the Human Magnet Syndrome in action as well as how that magnet evolves once we decide upon the path of self-discovery and seek to heal any dysfunctional patterns and traits that lead us over and over again to feeling broken and miserable in any type of relationship. The good news is that the more you keep committed to a healthy relationship with yourself, the happier and healthier connections you will build in the future. Time won’t solve all your problems unless you do the necessary work yourself and part of that work involves the following lessons, also retrieved from Eat, Pray, Love.

1. If Your Heart is Wounded, That Means You Fought For Something

They might have been foolish fights, but you did fight for something you thought to be important for you. I don’t regret the night I took a bus and did 500Km to be with a man I thought I was in love with. It was pouring rain and I had never been in that city before. Still, I wasn’t scared. Today, I wouldn’t do it. No; but at that time I didn’t want or I didn’t know how to spot red flags. I didn’t know that love had nothing to do with building castles in the sky. I don’t regret the fact I fought for something meaningful to me but I recognize today I had a wrong notion of what love is.

2. You Don’t Need a (Wo)Man, You Need a Champion

When we desperately want a relationship (or think we need one), it means we are lacking in self-knowledge and life meaning. We don’t know ourselves as individuals and we avoid doing anything that can lift the veil and tell us that we are impostors. We don’t know how to be present for ourselves and we don’t know how to live our own life. The more you know yourself though, and the more you learn how to live the life your soul asks you to, the more you will wish to share your life with a partner that resonates, accepts, and supports your true you. No one needs a partner; we choose a partner and we must choose him or her well. The likelihood of finding the right partner for you increases the more you know and act from your true self.

3. To Lose Balance For Love Is Part of Living a Balanced Life

The search for the self and the search for balance after years and years of unhealthy relationships is tough because unhealthy relationships are mainly caused by a lack of boundaries and a good sense of who you are. Setting boundaries and defining ourselves as individuals when we spent most of our life mirroring other people’s needs and expectations is a hard and fine art. When we finally think we are in a good place and that we did all the work that had to be done, the fear of going back to our “old self” kicks in when we face the possibility of a new relationship. What if you lose yourself again? What if you lose the balance that it was so hard to achieve? The truth is that life is made of experiences and we can’t live with our hearts shut down forever. Trust your healing process and use reason to assess and discern reality. That way you are likely to make the best decision for yourself.

Is Happiness a Realistic Goal?

realistic goal and a desirable one. It is rather impossible to be happy all the time, of course, and it is rather difficult to be in a pure state of bliss on a regular basis. However, we can aim to develop skills and strategies that enhance our level of consciousness.
