The intersection of the orbit of the Earth with the orbit of the Moon and the orbit of the Earth creates two very important areas of electromagnetic disturbances in the astrological chart of an individual or event. These two points of intersection are directly opposite each other and have come to be known as the Lunar Nodes or, in the Vedic tradition, Rahu and Ketu. The symbol of Rahu represents the dragon’s head and Ketu represents its tail. For this reason, they are always directly opposite each other, which means that they are 180 degrees apart. These points appointed the Nodes Of Fate, have the purpose of ushering us directly towards our spiritual life path and describe what we need to leave behind and what we need to develop and focus on in order to fulfill our life mission.
The South Node represents the past, where we're coming from and what we're bringing into this life, including the lessons from past lives and all the gifts and qualities that the individual has mastered in previous experiences. According to the Vedic tradition, Ketu can cause blockages and pain in our lives in order to push us to transcend our limitative patterns and encourage exploration of the subconscious mind which holds a lot of irrational fears. In the Chakra system Ketu is associated to the 7th chakra, Sahasrara, the 1000 Petal Lotus as, being the Soul, its aim is to assist us in surrendering the personality to a higher power and lead us to freedom from the worldly attachments.
The North Node is the future, the lessons the person must learn in this lifetime, the path or destiny necessary for the individual growth in consciousness in this life, which, even if it is not easy to embrace, will be very supportive for the revelation of who we truly are and meant to be. Rahu is very involved in desires and the material world, and for that reason may be manipulative and deceptive; it is based in the 1st chakra, Muladhara, representing the personality patterns and the body that look for gratification, success and power in life.
As they join together through the rising of the kundalini energy in our psyche, all our being will be reaching a higher level of consciousness and a deep state of joy. The astrological signs (that depict the quality consciousness of an experience) and the Houses (which are the expression of the areas of life where this quality manifest itself) are true guidelines to the understanding of this life journey.
As stated in the website Café Astrology, "Whether or not we consciously work on these lessons, events in our lives are likely to force us to confront them." Life is always taking us where we are meant to go but following its guidance with awareness makes the landscape along the river very revealing.
