North Node in Virgo

There's nothing an individual who has the north node in Virgo wants more than to be practical and vibrant. Yet they seem to be continually drawn into an ethereal world of dreams, schemes, and magical things. A wise Virgo north node is learning to step back and give themselves a reality check before making any big moves.

Virgo North Node Opposite Pisces South Node

The lunar nodes are opposites that are interconnected, and together, they represent a theme woven throughout your life's events. Regardless of your sun sign and the rest of your natal chart, the natural tension between the past (south node) and the future (north node) shapes any given moment in your life.

Pisces South Node

The south node (☋) sign represents the past, what's familiar and done instinctively. It reveals unconscious self-defeating behavior patterns developed in a past life or, if you prefer, childhood experiences, family patterns, or even ancestral DNA. With the south node in Pisces, there may have been illness, hospitalizations, death, isolation, cruelty, or deceptions that created a need to escape into prayers, dreams, and inspired imaginations. Whatever the source of these behaviors, those with a Pisces south node came to have an inner sense of helplessness and the belief that only "god" or "spirit" can put things in order.

Virgo North Node

The north node (☊) sign represents the fulfillment and happiness you strive for in life. If you have a Virgo north node, life will teach you that "God helps those who help themselves." These are individuals whose greatest desire is to feel vital, alive, and useful in some practical way.

The north node nodes spend about 18 months in each sign. Everyone born during the dates listed below has a Virgo North node. However, if you were born near the beginning or end date, you'll need to have your birth chart calculated.

Virgo North Node and Pisces South Node

Throughout their lives, Virgo north node individuals will experience swings and sway between their Pisces south node, ruled by Neptune, and Virgo north node, ruled by Mercury. However, the journey from an imaginative dreamer to a competent doer is not all roses.
