Your North Node in the Twelfth House

Karma: Control and perfectionism
Soul mission: Trusting the unseen

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

You have many past life experiences as an employer, in the areas of health, providing selfless service, and caring for small animals.

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

Celebrate your discipline, attention to detail and knack for staying healthy. Do excellent work. Treat your employees well, if you have them, and appreciate your sincere desire to serve others. Do those small things that you know will please your loved ones and make their lives a bit easier. Say no when you need to.

Study the sixth 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 sixth house karma

Careful of workaholism, taking on too much, and making yourself sick while managing every detail of the physical world.

With a North Node in the twelfth house, your karma stems from perfectionism, over-responsibility and an over-inflated sense of duty. This may be related to taking care of employees, tenants, work production, or others who depended on you. Issues around work, your pets and your physical health will be common.

In past lifetimes, you might have been a physician or nurse who martyred themselves for their patients, a labour leader or an employer. You might have been a landlord, or cared for small animals, as a veterinarian or other care worker. You may have served your community by offering people shelter and nutrition, trying to help as many people as possible.

Are you a workaholic, with high standards that tends to take on way too much? That is obsessed about your work, health or responsibility to others (even before yourself)? Do you tend to over-manage the details, because you’re fearful of the loss of control?

The shadow side of the sixth house has to do with an obsession with external perfection, instead of exploring the soul’s perfection within.

Step three: Explore twelfth house life issues

Look inside. Enjoy solitude. Learn about energy, consciousness and karma. Understand your past lifetimes. Connect to All.

North Node in the twelfth house themes include the hidden, unconscious issues that are not of the physical world, but that have held you back. This may include painful repetitive patterns, that sabotage you and have no clear roots. Also issues of abandonment, rejection, betrayal, and sorrowful experiences accumulated over past lifetimes.

No matter how foreign this sounds to you, these are the life issues to explore over the course of your lifetime. Questions around spiritual debts, dreams, hidden secrets, and difficulties that we refuse to acknowledge are included here. It also taps into incredible creativity, compassion and forgiveness… and is an opportunity to complete a major karmic cycle in this lifetime. With a North Node in the twelfth house, you may discover gifts and talents you never knew you had.

In past sixth house focused lifetimes, you fully developed your ability to be master of the details, in your body and external environment. Your North Node in the twelfth house now asks you to go swimming in the sea of spirit in order to create a deeper connection to your heart, and the divine.

Make it a priority to have some quiet, reflective time each day whether you’re in a relationship or not. Learning to trust your intuition, let go of the ‘why’ and ‘how’ and be adaptable is a central part of your path. A North Node in the twelfth house soul mission glides forward with trust, not knowing the destination. It believes it’s being led.

With a 12th house soul mission, exploring your hidden saboteurs and your secret heart is the key to happiness and growth. The more you connect to your inner self, the better your life and your relationships will support you.

Embody the essence of your soul mission sign as you explore the sea of spirit and learn self-trust: this is the key.
