North Node in Aries
North Node in Aries and/or in the First House
With North Node in Aries, our South Node is in Libra. With North Node in the first house, our South Node is in the seventh house.
We need to learn to love ourselves, trust our instincts, and lead without fear. If we’re nursing a fear of indpendence and standing alone, we might fall back on co-dependent relationships. We can be indecisive, not easily trusting our instincts. We might fear expressing our independent wishes and asserting ourselves because we prefer the comfort derived from being considered “good” people.
Learning to act on our impulses, which implies a certain amount of self-confidence, is one of the lessons of this position. Discovering that we can, in fact, live alone–a big fear–will bring us to a point where we can offer ourselves to others in one-to-one partnership in a more balanced, healthy manner.
Striving for internal peace, rather than focusing on achieving peace and balance in relationships, will improve our relationships and bring us happiness and satisfaction.

Cafe Astrology Review: This is an invaluable work, both for those new to Astrology and advanced students of the subject. The positions of the Nodes of the Moon by sign are interpreted in detail. The approach is both spiritual and practical. Jan Spiller offers advice on how to best work with the individual issues we face as a result of the placement of the highly sensitive nodal axis of the Moon.
Each chapter is dedicated to extensive interpretations of the position of the Moon’s North Node through each zodiac sign, and is broken down into sections:
- “Overview” offers specific attributes to develop, tendencies to leave behind, and the basic desires of the group;
- “Personality” describes the general traits and issues peculiar to the position;
- “Needs” reveals the basic needs of the individual along with practical suggestions for how to go about satisfying them;
- “Relationships” reveals some patterns of relating to significant others;
- “Goals” offers the strengths and weaknesses of each position’s tendency to seek what they want; and
- “Healing Theme Song” presents lyrics to the author’s songs designed to help heal the lessons for each group.
The author often writes of past lives, but keep in mind that the book is also useful to those who don’t subscribe to past life theories. “Astrology for the Soul” is beautifully written and offers valuable insights into the lessons and issues that face each position (by sign) of the North Node. One could read the chapters using the house placement of the North Node–if your North Node is in the first house, for example, the North Node in Aries chapter applies. Our Rating: A
