Out of everything in your natal chart, and there's a lot, your North Node is the sign with an arrow saying 'Go this way. For the love of god, go this way.' Your South Node is the bad habits you fall back on. We all know this, we've all experienced this. I consider bad habits to be like any vice, there's nothing good about it and yet we can't stop it.
So, what do you do? I've written about this pretty often, because I'm a total hippie, but self-awareness is the first step. Why do you fall back on your vices? What is it distracting you from? The next step is following your passion. Again, total hippie. You don't have to be good at it, you don't have to make money from it, it just needs to feed your soul. I know 'feeding your soul' is a cliché, but there's truth to it. Making time to do something you love goes a long way to giving yourself happiness.
Which leads us to the last step. I'm a firm believer that in order to be good for anyone else, you have to be good for yourself first. Only when you've given yourself happiness can you direct it out into the world. And that's your North Node's purpose. Its much like Saturn in that way, it's here to make us learn something. Whether it's about ourselves, how we relate to other people, or what we can give to people depends on which house your North Node is in.
As always, thanks for reading and let me know what you think in the comments. Bye!
