North Node – Mystical Gifts & Soul Purpose Insights

Mystical Gifts & The North Node

From the humble acorn, the mighty oak grows. Looking at the growth of our soul as that of a tree, stemming from the roots buried in the depths (South Node) and stretching up through the nobbles and twists of life that form around the inner strength of the trunk – high, high up into the branches that reach the ultimate shining light of our soul (North Node).

The placement of our North Node in our charts lends insight into how it is that our own native challenges and personal struggles are also the very gems along the path to us shining in our innate souls gifts and mystical expressions. The sign in which our North Node is placed can give us hints and guidance about the shifts that are wanting to occur within us in order to allow our natural soul light to shine in all of its brilliance.

Below is a glimpse of some of these guiding clues, taken from or inspired by Jan Spiller’s Astrology for the Soul.
