North Node

Definition of North Node

North Node

The north node occurs in our birth chart directly opposite of our south node. It is determined at the time of birth by the exact position of the sun, moon and earth. It represents what someone’s soul came to learn in a lifetime that will bring them out of their comfort zone (their south node). This astrological placement is a secret to living your best most meaningful life. It is also called the true node.



An ephemeris is a map of the planets. Because the planets are in constant motion, that map is going to change constantly. Ephemerides come in either midnight or noon versions, and show you where the planets are (or were for a date in the past or will be for a date in the future) at either midnight or noon GMT.
