South Node 10th house

Being born with the South Node in the 10th house indicates that the native should give less importance towards becoming famous and establishing a career-orientated life, and instead concentrate on creating a family and a beautiful domestic surrounding. In addition, a vital karmic request of his path is to promote his ancestral and cultural traditions, while also get involved with land and property. As the Lunar Nodes are always opposing each other, a 10th house South Node gives a 4th house North node. That placement has been excessively analyzed in the respective article. A 10th house South Node person feels quite comfortable in being a popular figure and in receiving places of authority.

People born with the South Node in the 10th house have a strong need for recognition of their place in society. Most classically, this will take the form of a need for self-recognition through their professional career and the place they occupy in a company or a professional organization. But one can imagine other forms of involvement in this area which in fact represents the status, the place one occupies in life in general.

For these natives, protection and security in life come only from the place one occupies in society. They do not imagine relying on anyone or anything other than the pursuit of their social status to protect them. They consider it imperative to maintain one’s place, one’s rank. They find it hard to imagine a form of life that can provide for their protection without them having to reach the heights to protect themselves.

In their first part of life, they will tend to behave like workaholics. They will be very focused on their social success, considering that a “safe” place is the lifeline that can protect them. They may be so focused on their professional life that they may have difficulty building their family life, or simply appreciating the space of rest and human comfort it provides. On the contrary, they may consider that family life is a waste of time, which constrains them and slows them down in their professional progress. They will therefore be more likely to flee the home than to settle there.

The more they advance in life, the less it allows them to find satisfaction in their professional career. Either their situation will deteriorate, or they will no longer have enough energy to provide the necessary efforts to maintain their situation. The simple fact of being slowed down or blocked in their ascent, even though they have reached very comfortable situations, will destabilize them deeply.
It will no longer be possible for them, after a while, to rely on their social position to find their balance. They will then have to turn to the energy of the North Node in 4th house to recover a form of tranquility.
