The north node in sagittarius foretells great happiness and good relations with close family. The Dragon’s Tail in Gemini indicates difficulties with distant relatives and possible disputes over money. This would have happened in past lives.
In past lives you were superficial, changing your mind and opinions frequently. To balance your fickle and mercurial previous nature, you incarnated to learn loyalty and autonomy in this lifetime. Your soul experiences have left you fearing commitment to any one point of view, since you have learned over time to see the truth in both sides of an argument. You never gave wholly of yourself and thus were free to speak one way one day and another the next. You may still have the tendency to try on changing demeanors and opinions with those you meet until you get from the listener an acknowledgement that you have finally spoken “the truth” (as they see it anyway). Such behavior will not get you far in this lifetime. You must strive to ascertain and speak your own truth which will come to you through intuition and the higher mind.
At some point in your life you will have to choose between living in the city and the country. This mirrors the deeper choice you must make between living a stimulating life among many acquaintances and a life of contemplation and solitude.
Your greatest task in this lifetime is to seek the truth. This means leaving behind your love of trivia, gossip, and rumor. Appearances are no longer as importance as substance. For the north node in sagittarius, it’s vitally important to be natural and real, and deemphasize the urbane and sophisticated.
If you are undeveloped spiritually, or perhaps very young, you may look on higher education with suspicion. You may not want to learn any more than you already know, no matter how little that is. You may have no goals that reach beyond tomorrow, be immature, bigoted, or sarcastic. Perhaps you cut off your life’s potential by marrying at a young age and starting a family. Another negative use of these nodes is someone who enjoys travel, but only to places that seem familiar.
The soul of the north node in sagittarius will be happiest when you teach or otherwise share what you know. For a carrier of the north node in sagittarius, religion and philosophy will be especially interesting to you and are fields that may prove good for a career. Publishing and adult education are also positive. In your free time learn astrology, dream work, palm reading, and travel to foreign countries. Pets are also beneficial for the north node in sagittarius. In short, expand your horizons.
Independence and solitude are the hallmarks of the life of the north node in sagittarius carrier. You are restless and should be curious, ever seeking that higher truth which will set you free. Avoid a tendency to become dogmatic or to change your opinions to please others. Your task in this lifetime is to develop for yourself and by yourself a unifying philosophy of life. This will give you direction and provide meaning, and it is unlikely this will happen before your first Saturn Return at about age 28. Fellow truth seekers with the placement of north node in sagittarius include Voltaire, Frederick Nietzsche, and Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
As the philosopher said, a man must ask himself two questions in life: Where am I going and who will go with me? Your soul is here not just to find the answer to these questions, but to be sure they are asked in the proper order. Think for yourself, Centaur. No one can keep up with a four-legged creature. Others’ opinions are only going to slow you down.
