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 in North and South. These two points have an opposition with exact 180 degrees. For example; if the North Node is in 1 degree Aries, the South Node is 1 degree Libra.
The Moon’s Nodes 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.
South Node is related with the past of our soul.

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.

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.
