The South Node in Leo shines like a golden coin. In past lives, or earlier in this one, they were given opportunities to be the star. There’s certainly a glamorous light about them that draws people in. Pizzazz and personality is their weapon and presence is their super power. You know when a Leo has entered the party. When their limousine door has opened, suddenly a golden light shines towards your eyes and you see a shadowy silhouette enter the doorway. You are too blinded by the light rays to see the person’s face, but you sense a commanding energy emanating from their body. It is almost as if they are gliding across the floor. You’re only two feet from them, trying to see who this person is, but as you hustle forward to see who it is, the person is already gone with only a few feathers from their hair lying on the floor.
Whether it’s the most sophisticated fur an actress is wearing around their neck, or the most succulent silver dress that hugs her curves, Leos know one thing; How to entertain! It’s not the same type of delicate, smoky, ethereal, glamour that Pisces gleam out. Leos are anything, but delicate. And even if they appear delicate it’s all part of their act. South Node in Leos are used to being the leading star of a movie, the main singer of a boy band, or the athletic quarterback that gets the whole school to cheer.
They are used to this type of celebrity, and celebratory, treatment. In this lifetime, South Node in Leos are learning that life isn’t always about being in the spotlight. They are used to being the main attraction and/or the leader so much that this might be hard for them at first. Life will push these South Node in Leos towards working with their peers and edging towards getting along with them instead of stealing the spotlight. There also might be tendencies in South Node in Leos to dictate, dominate, or lord over, their teammates, coworkers, and/or people in lower positions and stathuses. This type of thinking along oligarchical lines will lead to negative circumstances and reactions in South Node in Leos’ lives. They are here to understand the bourgeois, the working class, and what one of my South Node in Leo friend calls ‘normies’ (snorts).
North Node in Aquarius must learn to get to know their peers because it may be their peers that will help them. Perhaps whom North Node in Aquarius deems as lower status, or not equal to them at their workplace will end up being the person that will help them receive much needed information, experience, or out of the odd chance, help when North Node in Aquarius is truly in dire straits. North Node in Aquarius must learn to trust their peers and teammates instead of dismissing them. In essence, even get to know their peers in detail. Talk to them, share your life stories with them (within reason of course), relate to them, and stretch your empathy a little more. You might even end up being friends with some of your teammates, peers, or coworkers.
North Node in Aquarius shouldn’t be shocked if the universe presents to them many opportunities to acquire friendships. One is less likely to look down on, hate, or be prejudiced, against those that they know well. So the universe is giving them chances to understand, be a part of, and delve into the psyche of the masses.
A Part of Humanity
This is a lifetime for North Node in Aquarians to enrich their knowledge about people who aren’t necessarily in their immediate social class, circle, and/or demographic. North Node in Aquarius will learn that many people have many different life experiences. Every culture, background, ethnicity, club, social group, organization, and interest group, has a different flavor to it. North Node in Aquarius must learn that each sector of humanity has different likes, dislikes, traditions, beliefs, and dreams. Although it is unlikely that North Node in Aquarius will experience a total public downfall, they might get a quick, karmic kick in the shin if they fail to try to empathize with people they identify (or misjudge) as ‘underlings’ or ‘normies.’ This karmic rebalancing might also happen when their egos become too inflated through manipulation, fishing for compliments, or dictation.
Detachment and Science
There is an opportunity here for North Node in Aquarius to dive deep into the more cerebral parts of life. There will be chances for them to study subjects such as science, math, and world news. These subjects will help these strong willed individuals to detach more from their subjective opinions and use more of their detached, objective, brain.
Overall, North Node in Aquarians are people who are learning to balance their well built egos and their knowledge of humanity, and human beings, as a species. There is room for both the subjective and objective in this world. It is when they learn to loosen up their sense of self a little bit that they might shine even brighter than they knew they could before.
