South Node in Scorpio or 8th House: Smouldering Cauldrons of Emotions
The nodes’ potential to exert an influence on our lives cannot be overstated. Astrologers believe that the nodal axis shows a person’s karmic fate or life path. The nodal axis of two opposite signs and houses means combining these energies into one powerful vibration. With the South Node in Scorpio or the 8th house, we may have spent a lot of time in the past doing things that were secret or went on below ground. When the south node is here, we often have good intuition and psychic abilities, and we often know a lot about things that can’t be seen or touched. So, we might have been obsessed with the mysteries of life, death, mysticism, witchcraft, the occult, spiritual growth, and psychology.
We like to dig into interesting topics and get to the bottom of them. Anything that promises change, growth, or insight into one’s own psyche always piques our interest. We’ve seen a little too much of human nature for it to be easy to lead a purely neutral existence. As a result, we enjoy diving into the murky depths, especially those of our own inner lives. Issues related to the inferno of intense emotions, smouldering cauldrons of intense emotional storms, the unseen, and the endless cycle of life and death are drawn to this nodal axis.
Having a profoundly transformative and therapeutic fusion with others is as simple as merging with them. Humans have the extraordinary capacity to reveal their entire self to another person. We are constantly thrust into crisis, emergency, and troubled seas, and throughout our lives we may have dealt with terminations, endings, and severe losses in our relationships. Jealousy, fiery emotions, and the indelible wounds they leave characterise the Scorpio or 8th house energy within us. We have already been to the bottom many times, gaining experience and knowledge to help us in our struggle for survival, which may be a recurring theme. Our Scorpio or 8th house energy is like walking into a Greek tragedy in terms of the range of feelings it elicits. It’s safe to say that we’ve explored forbidden territory, learned to harness our inner strength and regulate our emotions, and accessed higher states of awareness. If we accept the possibility of reincarnation, then we must also accept the possibility of suffering from tragedy, drama, and intense emotional sorrow in a previous life. Over time, we can develop irrational urges and become trapped in destructive patterns.
When the North Node is in Taurus, we have to get down to business and are currently learning how to develop the genuine serenity that the South Node, in Scorpio, so desperately wants. Since the North Node is in Taurus or the 2nd house represents a less complicated way of life. It’s possible that we’re definitely learning how to fend for ourselves rather than relying on others. The material world is where we’ll learn and develop the most, and where we’ll find the most lasting happiness. For that reason, we are learning to be more practical and focused on our personal resources, security, skills, and abilities. We should prioritise surrounding oneself with pleasurable things and calming environments. Achieving balance in one’s emotional expression requires recognising one’s own intrinsic value and calming the intense feelings that arise from the south node of the emotional compass.
As a whole, we are cultivating a feeling of place, re-connecting with nature, strengthening our moral compass, and learning to control our intensity. We are equating spiritual with material, ethereal with tangible, and valuing both. Our South Node is in Scorpio, or the Eighth House, where it has been devoting its whole concentration to matters of the spirit at the expense of the physical realm. If we apply the talents of Scorpio, or the 8th house, to a practical project in the physical world, we can channel the energy of the transformation and manifestation axis, which is a Taurus-Scorpio polarity. Learning to make the most of what we have, practise sound financial management, and rely less on the resources of others are common themes.
Here, what’s required is a hefty helping of self-investment, together with a sprinkling of dependability and reliance on one’s own resources. Sometimes this involves mending a broken sense of self-worth. If you ever feel like the rug is being yanked out from under you, it’s time to put your focus where it belongs: on the ground beneath your feet. In order that devastating events like parental divorce, treachery, and separation, as well as the loss of any other external supports, will not weaken our resolve. To achieve Taurean-level tranquilly, one must go through a detoxification process. We need to put down deep roots now that the North Node is in Taurus, the second house. This method of planting ensures both growth (Scorpio) and grounding for the seed (Taurus).
