I'm the same boy you've always known

My North Node in Leo. My South Node in Aquarius.

"The theory behind the Nodes of the Moon (the North Node and South Node) suggests that we all come into this world with some underdeveloped and overdeveloped aspects of our character. The Nodes of the Moon point us to these specific qualities: the South Node suggests our overdeveloped character traits that are easy for us to fall back on, but that may undermine our lives if we hold on to these traits for security; while the North Node suggests the qualities that we need to develop in order to find inner balance.

The North Node and South Node points are directly opposite each other. They are not planetary bodies; rather, they are points that take into account the relationship between the Sun, Moon, and Earth at the time of our birth."

I don't necessarily believe that this all has any karmic relevance, other than love they neighbors yo!, but I think it's definitely interesting inasmuch that it's a pretty personal statement to admit your weaknesses (me) and your strengths (me). Fear of what others think, personal success, achievements, being good enough.


North Node in Leo and/or in the Fifth House

"With North Node in Leo, our South Node is in Aquarius. With North Node in the fifth house, our South Node is in the eleventh house.

A tendency to rely on others who may let us down, to come across as impersonal or distant in our dealings with others, to be fearful of being the center of attention and standing out as an individual, to fear taking risks, and to fall back on peers and community at the expense of our own individuality are some of the issues this position suggests. With this position, we need to avoid falling into the easy trap of worrying about what others think about us. Instead, we need to strike out in our own individual and creative path without fear. We need to make a conscious effort to deal with others in a more personal, involved, and loving manner, rather than falling back on reason and intellect which detaches us from our feelings. We can easily alienate others when we over-emphasize equality to the point that we won't acknowledge individuals' uniqueness. We can too easily lose touch with our own heart by rationalizing our feelings, and become overly involved with other people's problems at the expense of our inner needs for attention. Learning to take personal risks, which requires a certain amount of self-confidence, will help us to achieve inner balance and happiness."

Interesting. Lots of this resonates, but more resonates to me in how I've been raised, and influenced. Maybe I see some of this in me. Maybe I don't. I love you, even if you don't.

Charlie Manson has my opposite nodes. Tell a tall tale while you're at it...
