Karma: Reliance on partnership
Your North Node in the first house represents your soul mission, according to karmic astrology. This soul mission symbolically represents represents the AREAS OF LIFE and LIFE ISSUES to explore throughout your life.
Here are the THREE STEPS you can use to consciously attract a soulmate.
The first step in claiming your North Node in the first house is to embody the highest expression of the seventh house (opposite to the first). The seventh house represents your karmic past. So definitely appreciate — but! Don't make seventh house issues the centre of your life.
Celebrate your deep understanding of partnerships of all kinds. Marriage (including how and why it ended) and business alike. Collaborate. Learn the ways to forgiveness when there's a falling out. Joyfully share with others what relationships mean to you. If they’re alive, cultivate a relationship with your grandparents, or understand the role they’ve played in you and your partners’ life.
Study the seventh house to understand its highest potential, and choose to live that, holding these life issues ever so lightly.
This is your first step to consciously attracting your soulmate.
With a North Node in the first house, your karma is played out in the arena of relationships, marriage and business partnerships. Have you created painful situations due to your own indecisiveness, ambivalence or denying you have needs? Have you not asked for what you want because you're fearful of rejection and not being seen as a “good” person? Bingo!
In past lifetimes, you defined yourself, based on your relationships. You might have been a judge, a relationship junkie, a socialite, or someone who found it difficult to work or live alone. You may feel incomplete when not in a relationship.
The seventh house also represents karmic projections, or the people we attract to show us who we’ve been in past lifetimes. Notice the challenging people in your life, especially those that evoke strong emotions in you. These are clues that you may have created this person, to show you who you’ve been.
The shadow side of the seventh house has to do with making relationship issues the focus of your life, instead of exploring issues around Self.
A North Node in the first house may compel you to explore life issues around your birth and early childhood, how you personally define yourself, and your individual identity separate from others. There’s also a health component, as it relates to your personal energy.
No matter how foreign this sounds to you, these are the life issues to explore over the course of your lifetime. Questions around self-awareness, individuality, self expression and outward personality (and facades) are included here, as well as personal appearance and how you ‘market’ yourself to the world. It also encompasses how you take action, and take risks.
Have you attracted situations where you’ve been asked to lead? Don’t shy away from this, it’s a first house opportunity. And this may be how your soulmate notices you. Whether or not you choose visible leadership, they will be drawn to your authentic self, stripped of any façade.
More than any other, the North Node in the first house supports you taking the initiative. So, get on the internet! Join a social network! Ask that cute guy or gal out! Take that leap! Trust your instincts on where to go to find your soulmate, and know that putting your true self out there is how you'll grow.
Embody the essence of your soul mission sign as your true Self is being re-invented and re-born: this is the key.
