Lee Iacocca, Arthur Ashe, Ingrid Betancourt, and M.C. Hammer are all real life examples of natives with north node in leo who embody this energy.
In the past, you had many friends, but friendship will only weaken you in this lifetime. When you need them most, none will be found, for you are here to learn to be an individual and independent. Avoid any tendency to feel sorry for yourself when others “abandon” you. Some famous people that share the north node in leo placement and found themselves abandoned or outcast by peers are Janis Joplin, Bobby Fischer, Malcolm X, and Lenny Bruce, all of whom went on to considerable accomplishment.

Confidence is another key concept for the carrier of the north node in leo placement. In previous incarnations you dissipated your energies on social engagements and utopian causes, you should now dedicate yourself to using all your creative energy to achieving some great goal for the good of mankind. This means living in a time continuum of past, present, future. Resist the temptation to daydream of what could be. Dare to be bold and individualistic today and you will surely “win.” Shyness is not for you.
If you spend your time involved in other people’s messes, are egotistical or ruthless, spiteful of other’s successes, or tend to shock people without real cause, you have yet to balance your energy. While you are here to be an individual, you are not here to be a rebel or a dictator. You will bring out the best in yourself by meditating on what your values are, then determining how best to channel your considerable talents towards furthering them. Finally, you must achieve these within the context of society. While you are an individual, you are not here to turn your back on others. You may even believe strongly in equality and egalitarian principles in the abstract. You will find as you age, however, that Orwell was right: some are more equal than others.
Your birth right is to claim credit for your considerable achievements. Be flamboyant in accomplishing tasks. Cultivate your individual personality. Others will notice your magnetic presence. Take leadership positions when they are offered to you. This is vital for the north node in leo. Do not be afraid to organize the world around you, for you are here to create a stable life yourself and others, and to be recognized for your efforts.
