Sun conjunct North Node

Hello all,

With all the talk about birth times etc. it got me thinking. I noticed in my chart that my Sun is within 2 degrees of my North Node. I read somewhere that this means there was some kind of eclipse during this time.
Now, I'm not normally one to fish for free interpretations or advice, but...I was wondering what it means to have one's Sun conjunct one's North Node.
If anyone has any information or comments, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you.

Peace, Bo

    What a great placement Bodhi!!!

    There is a fabulous book by Jan Spiller on the Node placements...I think its "Astrology for the Soul."

    The North and South Nodes as I see them represent another karmic point in someones chart. Think of it as a line...the South Node the the beginning of the line and it represents those traits, skills, that we enter this life with. Often related yp experiences in past lives it represents the "comfort zone" which is not necessarily a good thing. At the other end of the line is the North Node and that is supposed to represent what we are supposed to learn/aspire to in this lifetime. This is where the comfort zone comes into play....as an example...

    One of my very good friends has NN in Virgo and SN in Pisces and her Sun is conjunct her south node. One of her biggest problems is the tendency to be obessed with the "dissolution of the ego" and other Piscean thoughts and ideals. She has a very hard time reconciling these higher thoughts into her practical life. That is what her NN in Virgo is about. Learning how to find that marriage of sirituality with everyday life and with virgo it often comes through service to others. But the journney to the other end of the line is that much harder for her because her Piscean tendencies of the SN are so closely tied to her Sun which we know often represents the core personality. It will be much more challenging for her to move down the spectrum....like a magnet the pull to her SN is very strong and will be hard to let go.

    However with your Sun Conj your NN it means that your core personality is very close to the North Node path that you are supposed to take in life. Not saying that it will be easy but it since your core beliefs may already be in sync with your NN it may be a much more pleasent journey for you.

    Just IMHO ......

      I would say that your ego, inner self, core self, inner journey is very similar to your destiny, so you are destined to be someone? To be specific as to what sign and house position and however else they r aspected, I say this lifetime is important to you.

    Thank you all for your input and opinions.
    Thanks for the anecdote Coors. It was really helpful and gives me added insight into what this aspect means. Still not sure what mine means specifically.
    On top of all that, my North Node is in my 1st House (I'm a double Aqua, Sun and ASC). That should be interesting.

    Peace, Bo

      Some people say with a North Node the same as your sun sign, it is easier to express or get to your NN. Whereas it's often difficult to get out of the SN, the NN compells us towards it with our Sun being there as well. From personal experience, I think that is valid, but only as I get older. Perhaps there is a yearning when you are younger, but not really understanding why or what it is that is tugging at you., As we age though, it seems like we can start feeling it more, or start 'growing' into that moreso.

      I've read some things about the SN being a past life tendency, but depending on your own personal beliefs, it can also be something from growing up, from early life experiences. How your behavior and overall attitude towards life was when you were young. I can understand both expanations, whether or not it was carried over from the last life, it's strange how when young, you still feel the SN influence. When born with a Sun conj. NN, it often means it was around an eclipse. I'm still kinda reading about eclipses a bit, so I don't know a whole lot to there. One thing I read though is that from a past life perspective, somebody who has a sun conj. NN has used previous life energies in a 'positive' way, so it might be a 'good luck' aspect in this life. I'm notsure about that though....

      I have the opposite from you, not houses but signs. I have a NNand sun in Leo and a SN in Aqu. my houses are 4 and 10 though.

        Hi Folks,

        I just want to be a devil's advocate here and state that there is no historic precedence in western astrology(as opposed to jyotish)for equating the nodal axis with karma or spirituality.

        What is stated is that the north node provides benefits with benefics and helps destroy with malefics. The north node is also the head or mouth of the dragon,greedy and devouring. The Sun is a benefic unless he is within 8 degrees of another planet. I would ask what house the Sun occupies and rules in order to get a good idea of how the north node is really coloring the Sun's actions.

        Also, planets that split the nodal axis by square are called "on the bends" and act in an unusual manner. In jyotish, the nodes are called "shadow planets", thus they have a shadowy influence on houses and planets they come into physical contact with.

        Antoine

          the sun is a benefic unless he is within 8 degrees of another planet

          in my case... only venus is 11 degrees away , nothing closer (well, vesta and juno)
          south node exactly trine from the7th house, north node exactly sextile from the 1st but conjunct chiron... sun conjunct IC

          and what would you say about this one antoine,

          moon within 2 degrees of the sun... uranus in same degree as the moon
          all in the 1st house with the asc ruler, jupiter, 8 degrees from the sun , and the southnode on 15 degrees saggitarius , 4 degrees from the sun.... quite a lot huh!! all in saggy

          That's interesting Antoine. I don't know much about Jyotish astrology.
          I was asking from a western, Tropical astrological perspective. There are no planets aspecting my Sun within 8 degrees. Both my Sun and North Node are in my 1st House.

          Nothing wrong with a little devil's advocacy, Antoine. I found myself not wanting to swallow the Western party line on the nodes wholesale when I read the various writings on the nodal axis somehow - I thought I could sniff something there that felt too much like a creed. I have read articles on the Jyotish way of looking at the nodes and gather that they probably would have been forgotten about in the West if they had not been so important to Hindu astrologers.

          It did start to bother me when I was once asked - a long time ago - to read a chart for someone who had the Moon on a South Node and all the books were giving really negative interpretations and I found myself not wanting to worry the mother about the development of her child. She then showed me another interpretaion that another astrologer had written for this child - it had indeed already worried her and it did sound horrible gloomy and doomy and negative.

          I wrote something on the nodes myself, just taking a critical look at different interpretations of them - I also particularly like what Kevin Burk had to say about them. I do not really get on with Dane Rudhar that much, but I also thought that his comments on the nodes were interesting too. In the Hamburg schools I believe that only the North Node is factored in and is said to be about socialising and bringing various groups of people together. In Jyotish I believe that both nodes can have a rather obsessive quality about them, the North Node greedy for novel experiences in the area where it falls, the South Node forcing a sense of detachment (not considered a bad thing in the Jyotish texts I saw) from over-atttachment to various things.

            Sun cnj n.node in pisces.
            An astologer once said of this " oh, you cheated!" ...in the sense that we think that we've already achieved our destinies.

          Hi Antoine

          in the natal chart for the time and place at which I was born (London UK, 1973, 01/01, 07.15) the Sun is 7 degress and 9 minutes away from ruling Jupiter (fallen in Capricorn) which is 59 minutes from the NN. Does this mean the Sun is no longer a benefic?

          First time I heard this, would confirm and elaborate?

    My sun and north node are also conjunct (in aries, 12th house). . . I didn't know about the eclipse thing, that's pretty interesting. That doesn't seem like a very common occurrence, so it's probably pretty important and I should research this aspect more. Thanks for the interesting post!

    Bodhi,

    Like you I got the same problem - Sun conj NN in Libra.....
    I have been reading some the replies in this thread and they make sense. The astrology-weekly link has something to say about it but it is too bad that it is the only one. I have the Jan Spiller book on the Nodes but I didn't see where she mentions planets or luminaries contacting the Nodes, just tracts about each NN placement. So finding other info on the web has been difficult.

    Add to that my Moon is also conjunct my NN and in fact I had a Solar Eclipse occur while I was born. I have been trying to find info on that also. In fact like the astrology-weekly page said Sun Conjunct NN is indicative of a Solar or Lunar Eclipse.

    So any info on Eclipses in the birth chart?
    Here's my chart >>> people.tribe.net/ultralibr...87861ab68e

          ah this is an old thread.

          i also have the sun conjunct the north node, in sag in the second house. harmoniously configured to many planets, and the midheaven.

          i've interpreted it to mean many things at different times. i'm certainly wondering where the money is, but truly i live in a world of abundance anyway. but because of the lucky jupiter/sun/north node combo i should have had access to much more actual material abundance. but its basically something i have to build up to, thats been my sense, when i get the hang of it totally...then things will turn around very dramatically and i will live much closer to that sun/n node conjunction in the second....even with jupiter always helping me out, it has not been easy for me in the financial/material world...and i have struggled with that, trying to make a living with my creativity and art.

          it doesnt help that i have saturn conjunct the s node too....although they are faw away from the opposition (sun is not that close to being opposite saturn) and saturn is also configured well with alot of positive aspects, and a few difficult ones.

            cool, this was a good read.
            the nodes are something i place a lot of importance on when reading.
            in a way it ties alot of the chart together sometimes

            thanks to bella for this post, i agree with this totally.

    Hey i found an interesting description in a book by celeste teal about Lunar nodes.

    With nodal contacts to sun, the node making the contact determines how much notice a person can achieve and how much freedom of spirt opportunities will provide for.

    With NN conjunct the Sun there are special privileges or a boost to achievements-it is like being in right place at the right time, having considerable luck, mingling and interacting with important people, plenty of material abundance and so forth. Things just seem to click for such a person and they may be drawn into the limelight or onto the stage. Sun is a beneficial planet and this soul may have been given this extra help to ensure sufficient development of ego. In the past there was likely a lack of self esteem and not enough personal recognition even thought the person worked for the benefit of others. The house where the conjunction falls will show where the individuality and leadership may be expressed.In this lifetime they are slated for personal elevation. There are strong ties to father figure who is of exceptional benefit. There are many royal family in this group.

    JP morgan, Donald trump, Tim Robins, Bo derek have this aspect.

    It looks like you have been destined to succeed !!!!

    I'd be interested to know any life experiences of people who have sun conjunct north node.
    My daughter who is 16 has sun in libra at the same degree as her north node in the 1st house. The south node is conjunct Saturn in 7th. All I can say is that she does things her way, she does seem like more of an Aquarians than a libra in the way she is so independent, she hasn't ever fitted into school or those sort of structures because she just couldn't learn the way the school taught her - she also has mercury conjunct the ascendant in virgo, but I am hoping that once she finds her path there will be no stopping her.
    It would be helpful if anyone has similar experiences with these aspects?
