The North Node in the 8th house invites them to open up to another form of experience of existence which no longer passes through the material perceptions of life, but through the sensation of energy.
Their path is to open up to the perception and use of energy in their lives. Until now they have mainly believed that the functioning of life was articulated around material needs without seeing that moving the energy had a very concrete action on the material. Their focus on the materiality of life weighed them down and anesthetized part of their potential as if they had slowed down their own lives.
The North Node in VIII now invites them to put speed and lightness back into their lives by developing their sensory experiences on an energetic level. According to each of these people, this can be through sexuality, through energy practices or life experiences in which they will be strongly confronted with the energy of others without being able to touch them.
The purpose of these experiences is to encourage them to loosen their too thick density to initiate them to move the energy. Matter is a form of energy which is densified, crystallized by a slow vibrational frequency.

They will learn to become aware of their intentions, to listen to the movements of the energy of their thoughts and intentions, to question heavinesses, which will ultimately release their latent potentialities and unlock their ability to support themselves in lightness.
