Your North Node in Cancer


Life theme: “I feel”
Soul colour: Silver blue

North Node in Cancer is your life purpose and soul mission, according to karmic astrology. Cancer symbolizes the EMOTIONAL RESPONSES, ATTITUDES and ENERGY to adopt 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 Capricorn talents

Loyalty, climbing steadfastly toward goals and planning is natural to you.

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

Celebrate your uber-dependability, loyalty and groundedness. Realistically assess plans for the future, and create a step-by-step plan to accomplish them. Enjoy business, traditional values, your appreciation for quality and dry sense of humour. Be that rock solid, responsible friend that others count on. Lend your shoulder to others, and remain dedicated to integrity.

Study Capricorn to understand its highest potential, and choose to live that, holding Capricorn ever so lightly.

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

Step two: Own your Capricorn karma

Careful not to get controlling, rigid and strict with yourself or others.

With a North Node in Cancer, your karma is around the pursuit of dignity and status at the expense of all else. Do you secretly feel superior in work situations, even if your title doesn’t warrant it? When stressed, do you get stubborn? Are you strict with yourself or others? Overly responsible? When a situation is awkward, do you want to control it? Do you fear your emotions? Bingo!

In past lifetimes, your status was everything. You might have been a CEO business leader, a father with responsibilities, a land baron, a government official, or an industry leader. You may have been involved in government, policy-making, or the ruling of your tribe. You were likely wealthy. (were you stingy or generous?)

The shadow side of North Node in Cancer has to an exaggerated sense of pride and needing respect, and rigidly enforcing the rules, at the expense of your own and other’s emotions.

Step three: Step into your Cancer soul mission

Open your heart. Nurture and value warmth. Wear silver blue (your soul colour).

Cancer is traditional, and values her home and country. Cancer is the consummate host who loves to cook and entertain. Youthful and creative, Cancer values nature more than money. At some point, Cancer may be called to be a nurturing mother to herself. In a way, Cancer helps feed others’ hearts, and by doing so feeds her own. Cancer may be sensitive, but when it comes to those she loves, is tenacious.

No matter how foreign this sounds to you, this is the energy to step into over the course of your lifetime. In past Capricorn lifetimes, you have fully developed your masculine side (even if you’re a woman). With a North Node in Cancer, you're to develop your feminine, warm, nurturing, creative and light side. Cancer is the spiritual mother, who nurtures herself and others, and understands her emotional life (even if you’re a man).

With a Cancer soul mission, lightness and sincerely opening your heart is the key to happiness in life and love. The more you explore that creative, nurturing, child-like side, the easier and more fulfilling your life will be.

Nurture relationships (this can also be done in business). Shed unnecessary burdens. Ease up on yourself. Connect to the water. Cool thing. Your soulmate will bring out these nurturing qualities in you, and will help you feel safe to express your inner self.

The house in which your Cancer soul mission expresses itself, is the area of life which represents empty bowls, waiting for emotional food.
