I love the cards in this deck because I always need to google these astrology terms. Astrology has always fascinated me and every now and then when I dip into the vast ocean it is, I come back more fascinated, more in awe than before. The North and South nodes in astrology stand opposite each other in our charts and are related to our past lives (so fascinating na!). The north node represents our karmic paths and the lessons we came here to learn and the south node reveals the challenges and gifts we bring in from previous lifetimes.
Whether we know what these lessons are or not, we are still subconsciously working on them through our lives. These lessons often present themselves as our big resistance pieces and our greatest fears. These are things we resist and fear because we may have had an experience at an early age which caused it, which in turn manifested because of a karmic connect to a past life.
These are not fears like swimming with the shark fears but the fears like the fear of commitment or fear of rejection or maybe resistance to being seen. Only you will know your deepest fears and your resistance points – the question is, what are you going to do about them? Are you going to let this past override your present or are you going to see it for what it really is (a life lesson to be learned)?
It is not an easy thing to go back to the past and face the things that caused you so much distress then but if you do undertake that exercise, I can promise you that it will not be as bad as you imagine it to be. You have grown and changed and learnt and you will be able to handle it now. You know the things from that past that are preventing you from living the life you want and you also know that you have the power to change that. Take the reins of your past in your hand, it’s time.
