Have you ever wondered what your life purpose is? Not the life carefully crafted by your family, community or society, but your destiny. What are you on this planet to experience? You probably already know. Particularly after your first Saturn Return (between 27 to 29 years old), you get pulled in a new direction by unknown forces. A direction that is in alignment with your higher purpose.
When Vincent Van Gogh stepped out of his Saturn Return at 30, he embarked on his calling to become a painter, instead of a minister. While Eckart Tolle began his new life as a spiritual teacher after his illuminating Saturn Return.
However, with all the voices buzzing around, it’s easy to second guess the niggle. Your inner circle may not value or understand your dream vocation. Heck, you may not fully understand it!
Thankfully, the universe always gives breadcrumbs to guide you. It may be in the form of a new book, teacher, friend or partner. But we also have another powerful guide — astrology. More specifically, the astrological technique of examining the North and South Nodes, or the mathematical point based on the relationship between the Sun, Moon and Earth at the time of your birth.
While the South Node reveals your comfort zone and past experiences, the North Node unlocks the key to your evolution. What are you on Earth to learn? Of course, the evolutionary path is never linear. There are speed bumps and plenty of detours, especially when we decide that South Node living sounds oh so comfortable. However, this “default” lifestyle is rarely fulfilling. And so, we eventually get back on the road towards our soul’s purpose. The question is: Where is the road taking you? Read about your North Node sign to find out!
