Having your North Node in the 3rd house of the natal chart automatically also means that the South Node is located in the 9th house. This natal placement of the nodes indicates a heavy emphasis on matters concerning communication, information flow, and knowledge. In addition, the axis shows that your life lesson also involves your attitude towards your immediate surroundings and how you interact with them. As the Lunar Nodes indicate Karmic debts and connections with previous lifetimes, the native who has the North Node in the 3rd house must concentrate on developing his intellectual skills during this incarnation. The North Node always shows what road we must follow in order to develop ourselves, and most of the times it is not the easiest one to choose.
The North Node in the 3rd house invites these people to reconnect with the local culture made up of simple exchanges, daily communications and close relationships. Knowing one’s neighbour, one’s baker, one’s postman, exchanging, doing business in the old sense of the term, which evokes as much the exchange of words as of goods and services, is the way that will give them a taste for life.
How many times have they neglected to respond to a proposal because they found it uninteresting? How many dinners have they refused, how many aperitifs have they missed, considering that this was a waste of time in vulgar society?
Whatever the depth of our consciousness and the high understanding of the functioning of life that we have been able to cultivate or attain, we are above all social beings who need to live together and for that to communicate with our fellow human beings. Learning is not the only function of human beings. To evolve, we must also share.
Every teacher knows it. Whatever our degree of evolution, there comes a stage where if we do not go to meet the other to teach it, to transmit or simply share life by bringing our consciousness to it, we can no longer evolve. This is the lesson that people who have the North Node in house III have to learn. To stop only wanting to learn the mysteries of life, and to learn to share life is their path.
These people have long neglected close communication, which they perceived as a waste of time, a banal and insignificant or useless activity. It is now necessary for them to learn or relearn this usual communication with others.
One day, they will make the decision to reconnect with the relationship, the life, the exchange. They will leave their wild lands and will finally take a certain pleasure in discovering the urban world, neighborhood relations, familiar exchanges. They will be able, on this path, to rebuild fraternal ties that have been neglected for too long, which will teach them the pleasure of sharing life on a relational level made up of small exchanges that appear innocuous, but which in reality make all the richness of life.
It is thus, by agreeing to experience the human relationship, that they will be able to truly integrate the wisdom that they had so hoped to attain. Their path is to take pleasure in engaging in the infinite richness of human relationships to discover that without the relationship, we are nothing.
