Here is a fantastic example of the North Node in Virgo ethos, from the definitive photographer Richard Avedon.
“I believe in maniacs. I believe in type As. And I believe that you’ve got to love your work so much that it is all you want to do. You must betray your mistress for your work, you betray your wife for your work; I believe that she must betray you for her work. Work is the one thing in the world that never betrays you, that lasts.
If I were going to be a politician, if I were going to be a scientist, I would do it every day. I wouldn’t wait for Monday. I don’t believe in weekends.
If you’re headed for a life that’s only involved with making money and that you hope for satisfaction somewhere else, you’re headed for a lot of trouble. And whatever replaces vodka when you’re 45 is what you’re going to be doing.”
The astrological North Node is like a beacon. Striking out for the themes and goals epitomized by the house and sign of it will always prove fortunate. By the same light, as tempting as it may be, the South Node suggests dynamics that it is better to shun. North Node in Virgo people are liberated and empowered by work.
Avedon was also a Sun-Moon in Taurus person. He had the Mars in Gemini trine Saturn, to augment the work ethic of that North Node in Virgo. Astrological Short Cut To Genius: Nurture Your Moon, Look Like Your Ascendant And Work Your North Node.
