The Moon's Nodes are associated with the past (south node) and future (north node). They indicate turning points in a situation and are often karmic indicators. The South Node is about the past (even past lives), about what is familiar, comfortable and emotionally safe. It is considered negative and sometimes malefic. The North Node is about the future, the unknown, and what frightens us. It's about growth and pushing the boundaries. It is the leap we are supposed to take. It's considered positive and usually benefic. Each is in a sign and a house and are VERY important.
