South Node = Innate gifts. The path of least resistance. The status quo. Talents, but only when re-vamped and re-structured to service and support the north node journey.
North Node= New energy, directions, skills, resources and potentials. The stretch point. The aspirations which remove us from our comfort zones.

Dynamic: This nodal set up suggests a “pull” toward the desire to belong in personal relationships. There’s an imbalance between emotional intimacy and personal autonomy.
In the past, one may have been manipulated or taken advantage of by the partner through emotional entrenchment. This may have come at the expense of personal and spiritual development.
The key to balancing and navigating this arrangement is to activate, use and refine one’s potential for acute intuition in service of wearing the correct “emotional armor.”
A default position is to allow the moods of others, especially a partner to affect your personal productivity and work ethic. Permitting drama to detract you from your personal ambitions. Falling victim to sentimental overtures, or allowing them to strictly set the pace in serious life affairs.
One’s sensitivity can be used as a gift to help in the managing of personal associations. Using emotional intelligence and inner radar to help you pick and choose whom to deal with.
A stumbling block is to sacrifice one’s personal authority for the illusion, or false sense of emotional security in relationships. To become trapped in through unreal or exaggerated obligations. Allowing feelings to exclusively dictate the usefulness of a union.
Progress will be revealed through toughening up and allowing yourself to experience a wide spectrum of feelings without fixating or obsessing over them. Setting healthy boundaries between yourself and another and operating with a practical and realistic sensitivity. Managing emotional reactions while keeping a distance.
Exhibiting maturity and rising above childish, instinctive behavior. Grasping your personal authority and stepping out into the world rather than “hiding” in the shell of familiar – or familial environments. Showing discipline in managing your time and not allowing your resources to be usurped by those who wish to overburden you with projected emotions. Using solitude wisely to organize personal affairs.
Pushing forward, solidly grounded in the present. Breaking unhealthy attachments to a romanticized past concerning ancestral heritage, or clan, yet using them as a source of strength and nourishment in the REAL and concrete world.
Operating from an internal locus of integrity while allowing others room to experience their personal feelings without bestowing a guilt trip on yourself. More concentration on accomplishment of goals and self-mastery and less on “belonging”.
In the past, you may have sacrificed your endeavors for the sake of identifying with the comfortable and familiar. Emotional attachments and nostalgia may have dominated and served as a trap or “black hole.” Now, the calling is to use your depth of emotion and powers of connectivity as a vehicle to refine yourself for more public pursuits. Refusing to allow group sentiments to hold you hostage from the business of personal organization and wholeness.
The “feelings” about your tribe have been overdone. It’s time to organize productive solutions to problems and make things happen with a broad base of exposure. Transforming from an emotional dweller to a self-manager. Helping others to help themselves as a by product of your nodal quest.
