What does it mean to have a Leo or Aquarius North Node?

If you born with a Leo north node or an Aquarius north node, your destiny involves a path of balancing between the spotlight (Leo) and being a team player (Aquarius), self-gratifying luxury and a bohemian or communal spirit. You could even think of Leo energy as the “haves” and Aquarius energy as the “have nots.” People with Leo and Aquarius north nodes can drift between privileged, patrician worlds and some of the most spiritually and emotionally impoverished ones. Their hearts can be big, but so can their appetites.

Leo is a regal sign that’s ruled by the Sun, which is the center of our solar system. No surprise that some Leo south node people are born thinking the world revolves around them! Their path is to learn humility, but not at the expense of their dazzling inner fire and glorious stage presence. Leo south nodes must learn to use their theatrical ways for the betterment of all—or to forward a humanitarian cause.

Aquarius is the zodiac’s socialist, all about equality and progressive social policies and activism. Peace icons Mahatma Gandhi and Princess Diana were both born under the Aquarius south node. The Leo north node/Aquarius south node person is a powerful changemaker, but in this lifetime, they can get lost in a crowd. These people need to channel their Leo “roar” to reach a wider audience. Once they do, they can claim the spotlight and shine, spreading a message of justice. While Leo north nodes care deeply about society as a whole, they can be a bit cool and detached on a one-on-one level.

Technology and cutting-edge ideas can be their forte. Aquarius also rules computers, math, science and quantum physics. Aquarius south node people can bring their “mad scientist” brand of genius to the world, especially through digital innovations and media.

Embracing the Leo north node path of glamour, courage and self-expression is their life’s work. Otherwise, they can end up as the unappreciated behind-the-scenes workers whose creativity and voices are overlooked. When Leo north nodes take the spotlight, however, they must stay humble. Otherwise, they can veer into unbridled narcissism and ego trips.

Interestingly, Leo north nodes Beyoncé and Justin Timberlake were both part of major pop groups before breaking out as solo artists, while Mick Jagger (also born with this node) is the showy Rolling Stones frontman well into his 70s. Leo north node Tom Cruise is equally famous for his blockbuster films (Leo) as for his unabashed Scientology membership (Aquarius). And Leo north node Kim Kardashian‘s star rose as part of an ensemble cast on her family’s reality show. Her tech-savvy Aquarius south node gifts helped her leverage fame through social media and her unforgettable “selfies.”
