What are the Lunar Nodes?
The Lunar Nodes in the birth chart are considered to be a karmic axis and an indication of the best path forward. The North node represents the direction you should head toward to experience the most soul-fulfilling growth, while the south node represents karma, things you already have as a strength and perhaps baggage, and what feels comfortable for you. If you want more information about the Lunar Nodes and their meaning, I do have a post on it here.
In this post, we'll explore the meaning of having your Lunar Nodes in Leo & Aquarius, both for North Node in Aquarius and North Node in Leo.
Lunar North node in Leo - South Node in Aquarius
With the North Node in Leo, you are learning how to fully embody the self. How to shine, take space, be seen and heard. The soul mission is to become comfortable with the spotlight, become comfortable with being seen for all that you are. There is a pull towards performance, whether it's because you're learning how to show the world a special skill, talent, craft, or because you're learning how to enjoy the simple pleasure of expressing your individuality and creating.
The purpose of this North node is to be fully present, in your body and in your heart, and to learn how to give: Give of yourself, of your presence, of your light, of your energy, of your heart.
In order to do that, you must learn how to connect or reconnect with your own self and with your inner child.
South Node in Aquarius shows that you already have mastered the ability to be your unique self. You already have a strong sense of individuality and of the things that make you YOU, in all your quirks and glory. North Node in Leo is asking that you find a way to express confidently and joyfully your individuality and uniqueness, finding a way to create a narrative in your life that expresses your true self. What's the point of being your beautiful unique self if no one gets to see it and celebrate it?
Someone with a North node in Leo is here to develop the qualities of:
Being playful and loud
Creating unique narratives that reflect your true self
North node in Aquarius - South Node in Leo
With the North Node in Aquarius, you are here to be a trailblazer, a rebel, someone who forges your own path. As for every other North node position, the house placement will give a lot of information about where this energy is applying in particular, but with this North node your purpose is to become acquainted with your uniqueness.
With the South Node in Leo, you have a natural inclination to do what gets you approval, appreciation and validation. You have a very strong desire to belong and to be validated by your peers, something that you naturally tend to do. You can be quite loving and creative, and enjoy being part of social dynamics where you are praised and cherished.
Your purpose is to learn how to enjoy this social love and validation, while fostering qualities of uniqueness and individuality, cultivating the qualities that make you unique, even if these qualities are not socially approved. You're learning that the best type of approval is internal, and external validation can only be fulfilling if it's for who you truly are, not for who you perform to be.
The more you pursue your natural instincts and qualities, no matter how "odd" you deem them to be, the more you find yourself attracting the right kind of experiences in your life.
Someone with a North node in Aquarius is here to develop the qualities of:
Authenticity over conformity
True friendship over performance
