The South Node In Astrology – It’s YOUR Past Life

The South Node in Astrology is your past life. That’s a simplification but let’s go with it.

So I am offering two Years of Mega Mystic to the person who wins the “It’s Your Past Life” Competition.

Using your South Node as the clue, sketch one of your past lives.

The South Node is always exact opposite to the North Node and you can find it in your Astral DNA Birth Report if you don’t have a birth chart.

The South Node is said to signify your past lives; so you’re going for the sign it is in, the house it is in and – for the smarty-pants people – any aspects it makes.

This counts as a lesson as well as competition.

As always, bonus points for wit & humor.  You can enter if you’re insanely astro-erudite or if you just figured out what your Sun Sign was the week before last.

Just figure out your South Node and riff off it.

For example; mine is Saggo/11th House and square Mars/Pluto/Uranus & Saturn.

So my entry would be something like that I was a traveling bard with a vast acquaintance. I had a taste for mead, gossip, wenches, new tunes + being a double agent between warring religions. The latter didn’t work out too well. I still – this is true – in modern life – get weak knees when I see a suit of armor and not weak-knees in a cute way.

Two Rules: each comment has to start with “once upon a time I was…” And you can’t cite what some past life regressionist person told you.  You do not even need them!

Work it off the South Node in Astrology. Have fun!

Once upon a time I was making all the rules and even controlled the game, but it wasn’t a game to be king. I couldn’t let go of going atop the mountain, the pyramid, the ragged cliff up high where the goat climbs up alone to be in the middle of winter to read Nietzsche and shout the scripture into the wind. It was lonely up there with no one to really call home. So I noticed that if I really tried, I could imagine things differently and it would radically be that way for me. My own mind became… Read more »

While of course I then turn to the symbol from Dane Rudhyar’s book for my Sag Sth Nod ruler, ie. Jupiter in Gemini, at 6deg26 Gem, conj the Taurus Sun, along with Venus & the Gem Nth Node, in the 2nd.. And so at *7degGem.. A WELL WITH A BUCKET & ROPE UNDER THE SHADE OF MAJESTIC TREES..

Mystic,

Well I was also born in the same ‘grand mutable cross’ generation as you, Uranus-Mars-Pluto in Virgo et al.. in the 5th.. with a Sag Sth Node 8th.. And one of my favourite movies is ‘Man of La Mancha’.. Don Quixote rides again.. With this classic of course being written about the infamous period of the Spanish Inquistions.. It is such a powerful, Soul uplifting & deeply moving film for me……….

(south node aries) Once upon a time I was a small negro child living in a beautiful village near the coast of africa. My family had lived there for many many generations in peace and tranquility. I remember the smile on my face and the joy in my heart when jumping into the river with my friends or chasing monkeys through the village. One day everything changed, strange white men came to our village with powerful weapons that our elders had no way of repelling. They rounded us all up in the village centre and first separated the men the… Read more »

Once upon a time I lived in a circular walled city on the outskirts of the kingdom of Miasma – a region of Malocracy. My people and I were members of a mystical sect of code makers, frequency jammers and apothecaries who were charged by the oligarchy with the job of using crystal technology, harmonic frequencies and vibrational remedies to keep the population under control and blind to the reality they lived in. The sinister oligarchy kept the people enslaved by projecting imagery onto the walls of the city. Images of gladiatorial conflict and mock battles from which the kingdom… Read more »

Are you sure this was one of your “past” lives? It sounds more like a vision of the future, maybe one not even on this planet. 😉 So if the South Node indicates past lives, does the North Node indicate our lives yet to come?

Hey Lauren,

Thanks for that. I seem to be a confusing mix of Scorpio and Libra- Mercury in Scorpio wishing to explore hidden depths and taboos- yet Mars in Libra- desiring peace, balance and harmony. A precarious balance!

Thanks again!

I’m in the same boat almost. Scorpio in Sun/Mercury/Mars/Venus/Uranus, but on the cusp of Libra and with Pluto in Libra. A battle between dark, heavy, watery depths and light airy weightlessness. Dangerously charming. 😉 Btw…for anyone who knows, does it mean something when your North Node is situated at the very top of your chart? Or when your South Node would be at the very bottom? My North Node is 24′ 44″ degrees Virgo in 9th House. I thought I remembered someone mentioning a special significance to those aspects that are at the top of your chart. Does it mean… Read more »

Oh dear- can anyone help please? I thought I was quite comfortable with my astro, but have only just realised how out-of-depth I am!

I have checked out my astro chart but cannot make head nor tail of it. I have my ‘true node’ in Taurus 10’33 d (labelled IC) and my MC (?) at Cancer 8’31….. Which is which?

If you want to check out my chart (because I haven’t given the right details, likely) I was born 30.10.1985 at 4am in Gladstone QLD.

Thanks in advance! x

Your North node is in Taurus in the 7th house therefore your south node is opposite that – Scorpio 1st house. It is conjunct the sun and pluto and square jupiter in aquarius :~)

Lauren

Hey fellow Scorpio, I checked out your chart and (as far as I can figure, though I’m also a beginner compared to many here) it says your North Node is in Leo, setting your South Node in Scorpio, 1st House. Just eyeballing that, so I’m not sure of the degrees, but if I’m wrong I’m sure someone will jump in and correct me. If you’re very much a Scorpio in this life, it looks like you may have been similarly so in a previous one! 🙂

Oops, yes I meant Taurus, not Leo. The North Node glyph looks too much like the glyph for Leo.

The aristocracy tolerated me and the lower classes were bamboozled by me. I knew… Read more »

Ha ha, we have exactly the same south node positioning. Maybe we should have teamed up! (although slightly different eras – I was hanging round with Ghengis Khan I do believe)

Oooh, I have a Khan-era life too! But I was just a simple hunter and I preferred being on my lonesome. The shoes I wore were really naff.

Ha ha! Do you remember a cheapo French 80’s label called Naff Naff. I had some awful cotton happy shoes in turquoise from them – your comments made me think of it. I really have no idea about my real past lives. I have had some corker dreams though, beginning from when I was 2 and saw Jesus hanging on a wall next to a huge fish (both my parents were professed atheists so no idea where this came from ) But when I went to London at the age of 10 and went to the museum which documents the… Read more »

Yes, I have NN in Sagg 7th house also. Me got burned by a Saggi foreign person big time. The pendulum swung back the other way and I married the Gem boy next door, bliss (but so weird as he grew up in the SAME flat my sister and brother separately lived in for years). That’s super interesting about the fires! Am sure you would have myriad past lives from what I understand. I don’t know why, but it seems not to be linear as to how we redress the karmic imbalance, as I have had other lives since the… Read more »

Once upon a time, I was a queen bee whelping forth parthogenetic progeny at a rate of knots, so overpopulating the neighbourhood that the family dialect evolved into its own language. I liked to keep all my chickadees in claustrophobic orbit around me, a buzzing constellation of servant-satellites; and blood being thicker than water, my pestilential little rascals got up to all sorts of hi-jinks to keep the clan fed and kept. Inevitably, internecine intrafamily warfare annhilated us all, save the last and least and wiliest one. With nary a backward glance, she swaggered off into the sunset on her… Read more »

Once a upon a time I was an ambitious Spanish catholic priest who traveled to the New World to convert the native peoples. I was righteous. I was pious. I whipped myself. I sublimated my bodily desires. I was revered by the other clergy and honored by my country. Then… I met a Mayan shaman (artistic liberty here since the empire had already fallen) and he introduced me to peyote and tequila chasers. He showed me the Mayan calendar and I could see the decline of the Catholic church (sorry papists). I made a radical move, dissappeared into the deepest… Read more »

Lex said: In fact, it’s surprisingly telling just how apt the Sth Node analysis can be. So true I think. What I’ve found is that I’ve been many things, a quaker, a mayan, an American Indian….had an experience where I heard my own cries as a babe being born. Was really quite magical, all of them, but, think our current astro is what we’re especially working on present life. This is just my take as we have been so many things, our souls are very creative and multi dimensionally diverse. Teacher said tho this this life is the most important… Read more »

WOW … you need to change the end bit because Mayans and Aztecs are kind of from different regions. And HEY that story is so cool about … well it just is.

My first encounter with past lives was when I dreamt one the night of my 17th birthday, and actually fully died in the dream, which is not a feeling I’ll ever forget (I’ve almost died 3 times alone in this life, hi 8th house pluto, but that’s not the same feeling). After I actually woke from the dream, my room being so dark, it took me 10 minutes to fully understand that I was still living and breathing, as the sensations in the dream were so very real. I was living in Spain, a quite big house which I’m sure… Read more »

I cheated loosely, but a dream is once upon a time in my eyes. But to make up for it I will stick strictly to the rules in the next DIY Astro 😀 *pinky promise* I just thought it fits so perfectly, my body refused to make up a fantasy.

Had an experience that started out as a dream. I was shot in the head by Nazi’s and waited to feel the pain but there wasn’t any.

Slowly, I moved up out of my body through the top of the head and was flying across some sort of landscape. I’d found my death so interesting that I wanted to go back and experience it. A voice (in the darkness where I felt no body at all), said, “for crying out loud, you don’t have to do it over again!”.

Woke up and just sobbed…

Sobbed because of the liberation I’d felt. We are not our bodies. This life is a dream.

But fuqing real dream. It is to be honored of course. One time, teacher was talking about this life being an illusion…big mouth Aries chimed in….”but a real illusion”…What about pain for gawds sakes?

In a greater sense, even illusions are real, as long as we are in them of course. The trick is to know the difference. Working on it….

What an intense, and I expect life-changing dream, Sweetpea. I noticed the same thing with mine, there was no pain, almost like instantly transforming into spirit, no body. Thank you, truly, deeply, for having the courage to share, particularly the compassionate response you received from out in the void.

That’s amazing applepieskies! I really enjoyed reading your story. How is your SN aspected? Dying for being good at working, feminine ability being crushed.. there’s lots of stuff to work through there! Does this story reflect in fears in your own life in any way, like with MM’s fear of armour?

Very interesting questions, andromeda! I can’t answer about the south node aspects, as I have no idea, but I shall look into them! But for fears..my only real fear in life is choking/not being able to breathe. The 3 times I’ve almost died in this life, including my very traumatic birth were all related to not being able to breathe. Feeling my lung collapse in that dream could be related to this, as that was the area where I was shot. I’ll have to consider this more in depth, thank you for asking, something to roll around in the mind… Read more »

That’s fascinating. With a Plutonic 8th house you must be (or are becoming in this life) very strong.

It’s in Sag and I was(am) Amelia Earhart. No one knows this, but I didn’t crash. I landed on a private island and spent the rest of my days frolicking with the natives 😉

I imagine you had a wonderful time with the natives Lioness. They would have been impressed that you came from the sky. Did your airplane survive the landing? Were you able to take some locals up in it? Or did it run out of fuel before you could show off the views? (Or join the be the founding member of the mile high club)

Once upon a time, I was once a performer, belly dancer glamour-puss extraordinaire (this would be the South Node Leo, 5th house), probably from North Africa. Venus Aries, trining the South Node: I was captured by some pillagers, most likely a gorgeous, hunky, huge, blonde Viking with crazy blue or gray eyes. He captured me, fuqed me, and decided to return me back to his home, SomewhereFrickinCold-ia. A bunch of Pisces in the chart: Much of my time was spent on the water, in those one of those Viking ships. This clearly explains my irrational fear of orca (killer) whales.… Read more »
