North Node in 10th House


Traditionally, the north node in 10th house placement denotes great worldly success but troubles at home.

You came into this lifetime owing karma to your family.  You may work exceptionally hard to provide and care for them.  You should know you will rarely find appreciation.  You were especially sensitive to your mother and early surroundings.  However, you will identify with your father as you grow older.  As an adult carrier of the north node in 10th house, you may have one child in particular who demands your energy and attention but who returns little to you.  Your spouse is likely to be absent as a parent, emotionally or literally.

Your family’s needs never seem to dissipate.  You may feel forever bogged down by your responsibilities to them.  This may include your responsibilities to the family of man, as well, since you tend to “adopt” new acquaintances.  You probably find you everyone with whom you interact into a family member.   This leaves you spending a great deal of energy.  This energy is from trying to balance your need to do things for yourself with your need to do things for others.   You attract and create these experiences to develop maturity.

Maturity means understanding the emotional needs of others.  Once you “get” this lesson that comes with the north node in 10th house, your worldly success will come more easily.  Later in life you will relish the opportunity to provide stability and shelter for those who are in need.  Until then, however, you must guard against resenting those dependent on you.  You must resist the urge to let family issues keep you from developing your full potential.

To speed you spiritual growth, be disciplined about a positive outlook. Go out of your way to expand your circle beyond your blood relations.  Even if you are financially independent, you must work.  This is the path to achieving the authority you so greatly desire.

As you make your way in the world, be wary of any unconscious tendencies towards classism or nepotism.   Also be aware of how your family values may have shaped your ideas about career.  Having the north node in 10th house, you are deeply and psychically connected to your family.  This gives you the energy to go out into the cold cruel world.  Your task is to forge your own path.

More than anyone else, natives with this placement of the north node in 10th house feel a sense of destiny.  It can be particularly difficult for women to channel this energy, depending on their circumstances.  This is because the individual’s self-esteem comes from work and the achievement of goals, not domestic activities.  If you know a woman quietly pushing to break the glass ceiling in her career, she probably has North Node in 10th House.  Others with the north node in 10th house placement include her sisters Geraldine Ferraro and Eleanor Roosevelt.  Also, Amelia Earhart, Mary Tyler Moore, Margaret Mead, Sarah Palin, and Penny Marshall share the placement.
