The Nodes of the Moon are invisible points placed where the Moon’s orbit intersect the plane of the Earth’s elliptic. The nodes are not actual planets or astral bodies and thus represent what is possible in an ideal sense, the potential path. The South Node, Ketu, has the gifts from the past that you can potentially use if you can unwrap them and become consciously aware of them. The North Node, Rahu, has the gifts for the future if you can properly integrate the gifts given you in your past. The proper use of the nodal axis’, which are of opposing (180 degree) natures, is to find their common ground and use that to feed their complementary objectives as you learn to balance your soul’s past with its future.
