South Node in Sagittarius ♐︎ in the natal chart

The South Node in Sagittarius in the natal chart represents your tendency for communication breakdown and the need to always be right. You love the admiration you receive for your vast knowledge and social ideals. Some natural gifts you have developed through past lives or this current life are seeing things from a broad perspective. 

You are naturally intuitive and keenly aware of the psychology of others. The South Node in Sagittarius indicates you have gone through lifetimes or circumstances where you have explored altered states of consciousness, belief, and spirituality. You have thought about these things deeply and possibly even got lost in your own ideas to the point you had trouble returning to “reality.” This may also indicate a stubbornness around believing other people’s experiences as true to them. 

You are learning in this life to integrate your past experiences and truths into your current situation. Providing validation to other’s for their perspectives, even if it does not fit into your worldview is a healing experience for you. Detach from your desire to have the answers and instead cater to your curiosity, open to learning, and take on the role of the student.
