Aries North Node; The Quest for Courage

Aries North Node; The Quest for Courage

With your Aries North Node you are called to bring forth the independent and courageous side of you…even if it means putting yourself in situation that stress you out! Courage is the high road for Aries, and each time you step up to the plate and accept a challenge you are on the high road. Aries North Node people are meant to be the one who goes first—the pioneer, the entrepreneur and the sacred warrior of the zodiac.

You may not feel like the fearless one but in the past—either earlier in this life or in  a former life you were likely to have been enmeshed in another person’s life and you gave away the unique Self that you truly are. You may have heeded too closely to rules of justice, reason and skillfully getting along but it came at the price of compromising parts of yourself in a deadening attempt to please and accommodate.

Now you are called to give way to a more exciting, truthful, and passionate nature. Inter-dependence rather than co-dependence is called for now. With your Aries North Node you understand the paradoxical nature of people and life, and you have a keen intelligence and humor that often surprises people. When you dare to act and speak outside the norm you can delve surprisingly deep.

In a nutshell, your soul purpose has to do with depending on your own resources and skills rather than enmeshment with others. It doesn’t mean you can’t marry or partner with someone else but you must be careful not to lose yourself in the relationship. And you may often need to take “the road less traveled.”

“Going along with things” is not the route for you, as it leads you into the shadows. Rather show others a new way to do and act and do that with your natural enthusiasm and good taste.

Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung both had North Node in Aries. It was very important for each of them to break away from the norms and conventions of their time and bring forth a new psychology into the world. Jung’s break with Freud was necessary for both of them to come to their full potential.
