So what is life purpose?

Well, this concept gets thrown around a lot and it can be a little daunting to think about.

I’ve had a sense my entire life that there was and is a greater purpose to my life than just going through the motions and living and dying. 

I believe that there are particular soul contracts that I have incarnated with and that I am destined to explore. I first realised this years after a traumatic event when a boyfriend died and I had to reconcile this event with my experience and purpose. 

As hard as it was, and as unlikely as it was that I even met him to begin with I knew I had a soul contract with him. That everything happened for a reason, even losing this amazing person. That he had also lived out his soul contracts including meeting me.

For me, it is incredibly important to feel aligned with a sense of purpose and passion in all that I do and to help others to do the same. 

Discovering my Astrological Purpose was enlightening.

It has allowed me to understand why I have gravitated towards certain work and careers that don’t light me up but which I am very good at - and why I feel resistance yet also magnetised to other expressions of myself.

It’s helped me to understand why I teach what I do and why I have been driven in 2020 to open a design house.

Your astrological purpose is linked to your Lunar Nodes.

The Lunar Nodes known as our North & South Nodes are not planets but mathematically calculated points directly opposite each other on our birth chart.

The nodes are points in space where two different orbits intersect: the orbit of the Moon around the Earth and the Sun’s orbit as it appears to move around the Earth. The point at which these two orbital paths cross is where we find the north node and the south node.

The Lunar Nodes hold so much gold for us in aligning to our soul purpose and living our best life as well as understanding our karmic lessons and why we might fall back into old ways or be afraid to step into our power.

The lunar nodes are predicated on the concept of past lives and karma so ultimately some level of belief in this concept is required to fully apply soul purpose astrology in your chart and in your life. 

Your South Node is a karmic point on your chart representing your most recent past life – what you mastered in your previous life and therefore a point of comfort or ease in this life but also a point of potential stagnancy. Our South Node is what we gravitate towards and what we often come back to. Our South Node represents the skills you already have that you have mastered and they are therefore easy to express. It’s your comfort zone and you can see it as part of your ancestral lineage or past life karma (depending on your beliefs).

Your North Node is a very special point in your astrology chart, especially for Soul Purpose Astrology. It is the point of your soul purpose or ultimate journey in this lifetime. Your North Node path won’t always feel easy, true and often will not feel comfortable – but it is where your essential happiness and sense of purpose will be found. The North Node is also about our Karmic Path in this lifetime and the lessons we came here to learn. It’s about our Soul Mission (as opposed to the often Egoic journey of our sun) but like our sun it will be a place of expansion.
