Gemini South Node, Sagittarius North Node


Retain: Curiosity, Mental dexterity, Analytical inquiry.

Develop: Holistic Understanding, Intuition, Breadth of focus.

Your natural tendency is to have your hands in everything. There’s a youthful curiosity about your immediate environment which infuses a state of rapid and constant activity. While your mind and body may be traveling at 100 miles per hour, it’s somewhat a foreign concept to slow down and ponder what all of the information you’re gathering actually means. It’s time to consider that this may well be your job.

Contemplate how synthesizing facts can provide a broad, telescopic overview which can advance your understanding of whatever you happen to be interested in. While you’ve digested the notion that the devil is in the details, you can easily get stuck there and resist opening yourself up to the world outside your window. It’s important to recognize the dangers of erroneous thought patterns which confuse information with true understanding.

Part of your life-task is comprised of developing a philosophy of life which takes multiple views under consideration. As a result of studying larger systems of thought, you’re being encouraged to recognize the interrelationships and patterns which permeate them all. You’re then placing yourself in a position to develop informed opinions about the larger issues which truly matter to you.

There’s a saying that “over-analysis leads to paralysis”. So, while you’re talented at logical dissection and pulling things apart, you now must do so in service of ultimately combining them in a way which serves to expand your map of the universe by opening up new doors, which in turn pose more questions about the world that we live in.

There may have been a time where you felt like you wanted to “taste” all that life has to offer. If this is the case, you’re being asked to decide which “food’ you like best. Once resolved, the journey consists of approaching all of the angles surrounding it leaving no stone unturned. It’s truly a victory for you to discover that every place on earth doesn’t operate in the same manner that your local area does.

In fact, whether you agree or disagree with outside perspectives isn’t as important as refining your tolerance and openness to receive them. While it may pose some degree of difficulty, orienting your thoughts toward the larger horizon, or the bigger picture can aid you immensely in jump starting your capacities for philosophical thinking.

With the South Node in Gemini, you’ve dealt with the “what”. The “why” and the” how” of things. The Sagittarius North Node now requires integration so wholeness has the opportunity to be restored. If Gemini is a multiple choice test, Sagittarius is a “blue book” essay test, where you’re being asked to formulate theories and expound on concepts.

Bear in mind that intellect and intuition are complementary, rather than opposing forces. It certainly doesn’t require the devaluing or diminishing of one in order to develop the other. You’ve been assigned the lifetime homework of learning to trust your hunches and combining that with maintaining the importance of concretizing ideas.

The fields of experience in which this activity is generated will be indicated by the house positions of the nodal axis in your birth chart. Also, any planets which contact the nodes can serve as helpers in the process of integrating the axis.

  1. Yes, sounds familiar…4th and 10th house, but I feel I’ve been pulled to the lessons of the sagittarian side lately. The picture is a trip, though I have a wide range of talents and jobs I can do (gemini), my main career is as a Pilates instructor. Working on narrowing down and putting all of my various healing modalities together and I might even open a home studio rather than the space I work in now (4th and 10th house issues). Spot on. 🙂

  2. Thanks for your intellect on this topic. I highly appreciate it. I am too, a NN Sag in the 4th House and SN Gem in 10th. The holistic understanding and use of my intuition. is life changing. The proof is in this comment. Im sure we both know what great feedback does. i wish you well, and I follow your Twitter also, again Thank you.

    1. hey!! thanks for taking the time to read the article, and I appreciate your feedback as well. wishing you the best on your journey and your quest to understand the energies in your birth chart.

  3. Well written and I enjoyed the bit about our SN being a multiple choice book and our NN an open essay.

    May I ask one favour? I am new to learning about the NN in Sagittarius, would it be okay if you could point me in the direction of specific readings/books/courses/instagram accounts for NN Sagittarius?

    My email address should be sent to you when I comment.

    Once again, thank you for the time you have taken to write this and help others :))


    1. Thanks for taking the time to read!! You may want to check out “Yesterday’s Sky by Steven Forrest. Also Kevin Burk’s ‘The Node Book” as well as Elizabeth Spring’s work on the nodes entitled : “North Node Astrology”.

      1. Wow thank you so much! I assume only a portion of these mentioned are relevant to the NN in Sag?

        Which one first? yesterday’s sky?

  4. you’re welcome. these books provide perspective on all of the nodes throughout the zodiac. as far as I know, there hasn’t been anything written exclusively on the nn in sagg.

    1. If you do come across one during your learning that deals specifically with this can you please let me know? 🙂

    1. Which one should I read out of Yesterday’s Sky, The Inner Sky and Changing Sky all by the same author. I am a young intelligent boy with a top job but a lack of purpose

  5. yesterday’s sky is the book about the nodes. the inner sky is an introduction to astrology and the changing sky is about transits. if you’re new to astrology, you may want to start with the inner sky.
