It’s a no-brainer that the moon in astrology holds a great influence over our emotional state and reactions. The moon can controls the ocean tides, a woman’s menstrual cycle, our mood, and so much more. There are two axis points of the moon which are referred to as the nodes of the moon. These nodes represent our past influence in previous lifetimes and our current karma that’s carried on from our past.
The north node and the south node of the moon are very important in astrology and generally looked right over. The north node shows where we are heading, the lessons we are learning, and where we are reaping our karma. The south node shows where we have been, why we carry the karma we have today, and what we need to let go of to unlock the destiny of the north node.
Since the nodes are on opposite sides of the moon, this means your nodes will also be in opposition to each other. For instance, if you have a Libra north node then you will have an Aries south node.
