It all boils down to revealing of your Northern Star!
We have heard people saying, “This is my north star.” And Pierce Brosnan has also famously quoted his wife Keely, of being his “North Star”, after she guided him through a series of personal tragedies.
So what exactly is North Star in astrology?
According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, North Star or Pole Star refers to the star of the northern hemisphere toward which the axis of the earth points. And in one of Havard Business Review’s articles, Northstar represents the highest personal aspiration in our life direction that comes with a grand purpose.
So to say, your North Star is your personal mission statement. It’s the ultimate destiny you are heading towards in this lifetime.
So what’s your North Star? How Do You Find The Purpose In Life?
- Is it being the best parent you can be?
- Is it to be creative and dare to take the world as your stage?
- Is it to revolutionise the way how the world commute daily?
- Is it to empower children with special needs?
- Is it to rid the world of poverty, suffering, and attain world peace?
- Or is it to practise compassion and selflessness towards others?
Does everyone has a North star?
I believe everyone comes to Earth for a reason and for this reason, only you would have the capacity to fulfil what your mission is. And along the way you will have events and people that come along (good or bad) to guide you to where you need to be. But does that mean that you need to have a lofty North star mission before considering to have a valid North star purpose? Not really..
We are plagued by everyday’s problems and issues that many of us could be stuck in a mud. Some could be spun around in an endless painful loop and have yet to find the way to breakthrough themselves. As such, finding your North star could be the answer to your way out.
What And Where Is Your North Star/North Node
Your astrology chart is unique and it defines the axis points of the planets and stars from the very moment you were born. It sorts of points out the destiny that has already been carved out for you, but that’s not final or fixed! You can either amplify that to your advantage or if you aren’t able to push through the negativities, it can be challenging to attain what the Universe has already in place for you.
Finding where your North star is situated in your chart, reveals a whole new picture about where you’re heading towards and what makes your life journey fulfilled and meaningful. In astrology, North star is known as the North Node in your chart.
There are 2 things to find out:
Which zodiac sign is your North Node in?
Which astrology house is it situated?
Zodiac sign (Aries – Pisces) are in fact energies that influence our actions, behaviours, thoughts and deeds. So by understanding the characteristics of your North Node sign, you can decode a lot about what you need in order to bring out the best in you.
Astrology Houses in an astrology chart refers to the important aspects in your life. Together with the zodiac sign that your North Node is placed, in one of the twelve houses, you will know which aspect of your life needs to display that form of energy in order to make you feel revitalised and fulfilled!
For eg. Your North Node is placed in the 7th house with Taurus as the sign. Let’s decode that and first let’s understand what 7H and Taurus mean.
7th House = 7H is ruled naturally by Libra and is a house for relationships, partnerships, 1-on-1 personal relationship. It talks about marriage, union, love, pleasure, beauty, fairness, objectivity and justice. This is a house of ‘others’ vs the ’self’ house that is represented in the 1st house.
Taurus = a slow moving earth sign and is very dedicated and persevering in whatever he/she does. It is nurturing, peace-loving, gentle and a home-body. Taurus is steadfast and very loyal but can be the most stubborn sign in the zodiac belt which finds it hard come out from the rut when it is time to let go. Heard of the raging bull in chinatown? Ok that’s Taurus. Don’t mess or push a Taurus too far you don’t want to see an angered charging bull. I’ll say just let it graze the field and nudge it a little by little to get your point across. Like Libra (they both are ruled by Venus) they hate war, hate conflicts and love peace.

So North Node IN TAURUS 7H MEANS?
Depending on the other factors in the chart, there are many ways to interpret how North Node turns out for you. For ease of this article, I’ll provide the general snapshot of what it means –
The destiny of a Taurus 7H North Node is to learn how to be comfortable while being in a committed relationship. Learn to be relaxed and at ease with another person rather than being paranoid or pulling your heart close to your sleeves that forbid anyone to know you. Let go of the need to be controlling and bare your soul to your partner without worrying to be hurt. You are very protective of yourself because you feel love to the deepest core and you love with a burning soul.
When a relationship ends, you feel immense pain and hurt and are therefore scared to commit too much, putting a leg out of the relationship for fear of being scarred. And that’s because of this, you can’t enjoy a fulfilling relationship because you are thinking of ‘escaping’ all the times.. But that’s all about love! You learn along the way and understand the meaning behind each lesson and event that gets unfolded. You can be possessive and wants commitment from a partner fast as you want him/her to be as invested as you.
Do allow relationships to develop at their own pace and take your time to know a person well before deciding to a committed union. You have the ability to stay with a partner for long so decide who you want to spend your life happily with and don’t rush. There’s quite a fair bit of drama in your relationships and subconsciously you might instigate something out of nothing in order to have that as drama and transformative relationships are what makes you alive and happy. Learn to have relationships with stable, dependable, and practical people. Invest in long lasting, steady, reliable significant relationships while exploring the sensual side of it. The goal is to learn how to value your significant other and most importantly, learning to trust and to let go…
The interpretation of the North Node will be different if it happens to be in Sagittarius sign and on 4th house. Where the theme could surround long distance travel for the family or you probably could settle abroad with your family. So understanding your North Node position and what it entails could help you to work towards that goal, giving you a sense of purpose and achievement in this journey.
Achieving your north star is not the final destination
Heard of the phrase, “It is not the destination but the journey that matters’? Don’t get too fried up whether or not you’ve achieved your North Node goal. The entire purpose of it is to learn what matters to you along the way. Be it to get the meaning behind the meeting of a new partner, the lesson to learnt behind each failure, and the reason behind why certain things unfold the way they did. The whole point of your north star is to help you make informed decisions and how you can be better in your next endeavour. Be content with your progress, knowing that you’re one step closer towards your destiny!
Your north star can change!
Planets rotate and evolve every second so does your needs and wants and your North Node too! Over time you may find that your direction changes as you evolve. That’s completely normal. You may experience something that pushes you in a different direction which means it’s time to set a new target and aim. This could mean an extension to your current North Node goal or a new one altogether.
So, what’s yours? Where’s your north star pointing you to?
