Your North Node in the Ninth House

Karma: Lost in the ideas of others
Soul mission: Your truth

North Node in the ninth house is your life purpose and soul mission, according to karmic astrology. The ninth 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 third house savvy

You have many past life experiences honing how you think, speak and write, and connecting with people and ideas in your community.

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

So celebrate your curiosity, your flexibility, your inventiveness and the gift you have of expressing your ideas. Enjoy your intellectual side and love of sophisticated, urban environments. Write, speak, love literature and learning. Enjoy social networking and cultivate a relationship with your siblings if you have them.

Study the third 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 third house karma

Careful of duplicity, gossip, love triangles, inconsistency, lack of focus, and not seeing the forest for the trees.

With a North Node in the ninth house, your karma stems from how you’ve become so attuned to the people and things around you, that you’ve lost who you really are in the big picture of life. There can also be challenges in relationships, which often become quite entangled and complex.

In past lifetimes, you may have been in the world of journalism, sales, publishing or lecturing. You may have been someone whose duplicity lead to infidelity, or someone who lied or gossiped, causing harm. Maybe someone whose view of life was restricted to the people and things in front of him, rather than exploring broader horizons and developing your own personal values and beliefs.

Have you created (or have strong feelings about) people who gossip or say one thing and do another? Or spread themselves too thin? What about people who draw you into their dramas, always seeking your help. There’s your clue!

The shadow side of the third house has to do with an overdeveloped need for other people to validate your existence. It’s time to talk less to others… and focus on developing faith within yourself.

Step three: Explore ninth house life issues

Discover your true self. Love what’s real and natural. Spend time alone. Teach. Wear purple (your soul colour).

North Node in the ninth house life issues include those of of personal philosophy and belief systems including religion and the meaning of life. It also encompasses international (long) travel, other cultures and higher education as ways of broadening your experience and understanding of how the universe works.

No matter how foreign this sounds to you, these are the life issues to explore over the course of your lifetime. Questions about who you are, what you believe and your vision of your life are included here. A North Node in the ninth house values nature and with this soul mission, you are to focus on the forest rather than than the trees. So explore what you believe apart from others, and cultivate trust that lights the way within. Don’t adapt to your audience – speak your truth.

Broadening your view is the first step to claiming your North Node in the ninth house and to do this, you might be involved with international business or other cultures, publishing, graduate studies, justice and the law, ethics, foreigners, in-laws, the clergy or church, or your grandchildren.

With a 9th house soul mission, traveling, spending time in nature, or exploring your own religious or spiritual faith is a great way to activate the manifestationof your desires. In relationship, resist the temptation to tell your sweetie what they want to hear. Have fun, travel and dream together! Even if your travels are in your mind.

Embody the essence of your soul mission sign as you reveal your personal truth: this is the key.
