North Node in the 7th House

Having your North Node in the 7th house of the natal chart automatically also means that the South Node is located in the 1st house. This natal placement of the North Node indicates heavy emphasis on matters concerning one’s relationships and partnerships, while also influences his perception of Ego. In addition, the 7h/1st axis shows that your life lesson involves your attitude towards unification with other people and sharing your reality, while also is strongly connected to the terms “contract”, “agreement” and even “open enemies”.

As the Lunar Nodes indicate Karmic debts and connections with previous lifetimes, the native who has the North Node in the 7th house must dedicate himself towards the difficult task of joining forces with other individuals. This is something he failed doing during previous lives, preferring to concentrate on himself and his own self-development. The South Node in the 1st house indicates that in his early ages he still has a lot of memories about being independent, and such a native has probably been very egoistic while young. These are all programs carried from his previous lives; he will feel much at ease by worshiping only himself. Yet, this is the critical point where things must change, and a conscious decision to unite with others is awaiting him in some moment of his life.

Such a native will frequently feel uneasy in relationships, especially in the first part of his life. He might treat his partners unfairly, preferring his own happiness instead of flourishing together with his significant other. A series of such actions and mistakes might hurt other people, in his race to feed his selfishness. A lot of energy of his relationship or business partners might be absorbed by him, and with hard aspects he might be acting for some time as a psychic vampire. Nevertheless, the karmic path of such a native is to break this pattern, and learn how to give, share and love.

The North Node always shows us what route we must follow in order to develop ourselves, and most of the times it is not the easiest one to choose. Most people usually feel quite uncomfortable about marching towards fulfilling matters of the house where the North Node is located. This is because during previous lifetimes we have gathered a lot of experience concerning the South Node house matters. Indeed, we are lot more acquainted with the roads we have already walked; yet life requires from us to abandon the safety of known patterns and face development through unknown areas.

For fulfilling our cause, the North Node strengthens everything it touches. Of course, a lot of fears can be present concerning the direction it indicates, as it is a terra incognita yet to be discovered.  Yet, the North Node is quite beneficial when conjuncting any planet present in the house, even if it is a malefic. Naturally, a malefic planet adversely aspected will still remain a rather harsh lesson to learn. Spiritual growth will be eventually reached; even if it comes through difficulties, but generally expect the North Node of the Moon to bless you with expansion of the positive traits of any planet nearby.

The North Node in the 7th house signifies a karmic need to concentrate on creating a stable relationship or marriage. The native must learn to take care of his loved ones, or other people that he is tied with. Partners in business are also considered a very important 7th house matter. The good thing is that the North Node brings luck wherever it is placed. This means that the native’s spouse will be quite a good character, often inspiring the individual to become a better person. In addition, the North Node in the 7th house can gift the native with a wonderful second child. As the 7th house rules contracts and agreements, there can be benefits through them. Also, such a person will have luck in court, win against his enemies or even manage diplomatically to transform his enemies into friends.

A seventh house North Node is the best aid to achieve oneness with another individual. Theoretically, such a bond with another person can even reach the level of incarnating in one body in a next lifetime. Of course, this is if the two human beings manage to merge during their partnership and break all borders between them.

If you have this placement, try to make an introspection about how you treat other people, the most dear and near in particular. In case you see that your Ego outweighs them, it is maybe time to consider altering your views. In case you have already noticed a shift in your priorities, and that you dedicate yourself in empowering your beloved ones, then you are on the correct path. And be sure, your decisions will be rewarded by a harmonious marriage, by a long-lasting and successful business relation and many other gifts that the 7th house can bring.

The 7th/1st house Lunar Node axis brings the dilemmas “Me or Us”, “Ego or Collectivity”, “Alone or Together”, and we must choose the first option. Our previous incarnations were having a repetitive choice of the second, a pattern that we should stop now. It is possible that we did not have a different option during our previous lives. But now, it exists. And probably the universe has prepared the right people with which we can demolish our walls of Ego and let our ocean receive the waters of the others.

When you activate your seventh house and balance the karmic axis between the two Nodes, you will be able again to seek development in the first house related matters. After learning to offer to others and merge with them, you will be again free to develop your personal being. This time, on another level, more conscious and wise. In your elder years, after receiving all the 7th house lessons, the 1st house gates will be open again. Your individual evolution will not stop totally, it will just be paused so that you develop the more important 7th house issues. When finishing with your karmic debts, you will be able to use your South Node in a proper way, this time consciously.
