When you are born, you are given innate strengths and weaknesses, that’s why some things come naturally to you and others do not.

Your South Node is directly correlated with your North Node. Together, these nodes make up Lunar Nodes.

The North Node describes who you should be in this life, while the South Node informs you how to move past it. If you don’t, you won’t go anywhere in life.

Pertaining to each specific zodiac sign, you are striving to diversify yourself by obtaining the powerful traits of your North Node, while you are trying to move away from your negative traits of your South Node.
