Many people strive to study astrology in order to find out their destiny, to realize why they came to this world. A natal chart is capable of giving a huge amount of information on this subject, but it is difficult to understand it without a professional. But in a personal horoscope there are special points associated precisely with the purpose, which will help you understand your place in the world, even without deep astrological knowledge. These are the so-called lunar nodes. In our article we will tell you how to understand your purpose by the position of the lunar nodes, what karma they carry in themselves and what fate they have prepared for you.
What are lunar nodes?
There are two lunar nodes in the horoscope, North and South. The North is your guiding star, what you should strive for in this life. In literature, it can also be called the Ascending Node or Rahu. This is the lesson you need to learn. Southern – what you had before and is now, as a gained experience, your starting point. This is both your advantage and something that you must give up over time in order to learn a new lesson. Its second name is the Descending Lunar Node (or Ketu). So, let’s start considering the positions of the lunar nodes in the signs of the zodiac.
