Your North Node in the Fifth House

Karma: Reliance on friends
Soul mission: Unique self expression

North Node in the fifth house is your life purpose and soul mission, according to karmic astrology. The fifth house symbolizes the AREAS of LIFE and LIFE ISSUES to explore throughout your life.

Karmic astrology is a spiritual approach to astrology. I've created THREE STEPS to living your life purpose, outlined below.

If you want to go deeper, book a private karmic astrology session with me. I work with people who sincerely want to live a life with purpose, awakening their heart and working with their soul instead of struggling against it.

Step one: Appreciate your eleventh house savvy

You have many past life “group” experiences where friends participate as equals toward a visionary or humanitarian cause.

The first step in claiming your North Node in the fifth house is to embody the highest expression of the eleventh house (opposite to the fifth). The eleventh house represents your karmic past. So definitely appreciate — but! Don't make eleventh house issues the centre of your life.

Celebrate your diverse network of friends, and the groups of which you’re a part. Contribute to and work toward the causes and ideals you believe in. Ask questions about the shifts going on in the world, and join with others that resonate. Go to networking dinners, and keep in touch.

Study the eleventh house to understand its highest potential, and choose to live that, holding these life issues ever so lightly.

To live a life with purpose: this is your first step.

Step two: Own your eleventh house karma

Have friends let you down? Do you have issues around receiving love? Do you defer to the group? These could be karmic.

With a North Node in the fifth house, your karma stems from the pursuit of a collective ideal, at the expense of your own creative passions. Do friends become lovers, then only to become friends again when it gets too intense? Do you insist on equality at all costs? Have you been let down by friends? Do you resist the spotlight? Have you been accused of being detached in relationships?

In past lifetimes, you might have been active in a political party, or another group that represents higher ideals (including spiritual and tribal groups). As a social advocate, you may have been part of a country’s revolution or a people’s resistance. Have you created friends or lovers on a mission, who are emotionally detached? There’s your clue!

Have you attracted (or do you have strong feelings about) people who get caught up in the cause, at the expense of their romantic relationships? Who are idealistic, resist taking personal risks and use the group as an excuse not to step up? There’s your clue!

The shadow side of the eleventh house has to do with getting lost in idealistic hopes and dreams at the expense of manifesting your desires in the present.

Step three: Explore fifth house life issues

Explore your creativity. Study the imagination. Connect with children. Play! Love with your heart open! Take a risk.

North node in the fifth house life issues include your birth children, your inner child and the ways you creatively express. It’s also about how you give love to others and romantic love affairs too. It covers actions that involved risk taking, from gambling in Vegas, to playing the stock market. It’s also about vacations, parties, playing games, social activities and generally having fun.

No matter how foreign this sounds to you, these are the life issues to explore over the course of your lifetime. Questions around love affairs, enthusiasm, and how you create joy and pleasure in your life are included here. Also how you can manifest using your imagination. The 5th house is your uniqueness and how you express love to others. It’s about mastering one’s life, and manifesting what you want.

With a North Node in the fifth house, generously expressing your love, and exploring YOUR passions are the key to happiness. More than any other soul mission, your own children figure prominently (if you don’t want children, then what you birth creativly). The more you take risks, have fun and explore your passions, the easier you'll achieve your goals (and meet your soulmate along the way).

More than any other, a North node in the fifth house supports risk taking. So act from your gut, and follow your hunches. This goes for gambling, the stock market and other speculative activities, too.

Embody the essence of your soul mission sign as you define and manifest your heart's desires: this is the key.
