The North Node in Capricorn pulls us from the safety of home and hearth into the big world to reckon with career and ambition. We may find ourselves appointed to public positions which require a great deal of exertion on our part. It may also be rather thankless as the hours can be long and the people problematic. Being pulled from home is experienced as a big sacrifice and we often feel invisible as if our greatest efforts will always go unnoticed. Balancing the North and South Nodes tempers South Node ambition with North Node reluctance into a more human and humble approach to work and acclaim. Balanced Nodes in this case can lead us to “fame” in our work where we are identified as the expert.
