What is the North Node within the Synastry chart?

The North Node is one of two “Nodes of the Moon” that are marked on a personal natal chart. The Nodes of the Moon, the North Node and the South Node are not planetary bodies, but rather points formed by the Moon’s orbit around the Earth, intersecting with the Earth’s path around the Sun.

The North and South Node stay in a sign for 1.5 years. The North Node takes 18 years to go through the full zodiac before the cycle repeats.

The North Node is the Ascending Node (the point closest to the North pole) and is thought to represent the traits a soul is moving toward, from a general perspective. The South Node is thought to be the traits a soul is leaving behind, that represents mastery in previous lives. The South Node represents our comfort zones and, in turn, where an individual is now excessively exhibiting behavior. Growing toward more traits as depicted by the North Node helps the individual find balance.

There is a deep sense of growth when describing the North Nodes - which ties in well to the perspective of evolutionary astrology: that we are always growing and expanding and changing. The Nodes of the Moon describe the type of growth and soul evolution we experience.

For this reason, a relationship that has an aspect between the North Node for two individuals is thought to be an especially meaningful connection, that activates one’s own spirituality.
