Your North and South Node


Your North and South nodes tell you all about the things that you need to let go, as well as your ultimate life destiny.  Have you ever asked yourself, “What am I supposed to do with my life?” Have you ever wondered, “What was I like in my last life?”
Your South node will tell you what you need to let go from the past.  It is where you “comfort zone” is, and the place of “been there done that.”  Some people get stuck in their South node habits without ever springing into their North node, or their destiny. 
Your North node will tell you where you are going in the future.  It will make you get out of your comfort zone, and teach you life’s lessons.  The lessons are for your soul and spirituality.  Finding this will give you great satisfaction in life.
So how do you know what your North and South nodes are?  A great way for you to find out would be getting your chart read.  You can actually get this done by me from clicking on this link where I tell you about this and so much more, or you can find it for free here.

Aries South Node: You need to release the “me first” mentality.  Sometimes being in solitude is what is comfortable to you, but you have too much to offer the world by being cooped up all on your own.  You have a tendency for your first reaction to conflict to get aggressive and feisty, but thinking things through before reacting is best. 

Libra North Node: Embrace the power of partnership.  Don’t be afraid to lose yourself in love every once in a while.  Love is the most beautiful thing you will ever experience in your lifetime.  Be a peaceful warrior; or how I like to call it a steel fist in a velvet glove.  Get out there and socialize more.  You never know who you could meet.  It’s a big beautiful world out there that is meant for exploration.


Taurus South Node: You must release your attachments towards luxury.  Small talk is something that can also get you in trouble at times.  Sometimes you are overly practical, and must learn how to lighten up.  You like to stick with what you know, and you are a true creature of habit.  Thinking outside the box, and embracing change will help you grow.

Scorpio North Node: Embrace simplicity that embraces spirituality.  Find connections through people, and hobbies that help you grow as a person.  Let other people help you when you need it.  No one is meant to go through life alone.  Find your fulfillment in your soul, rather than tangible items.


Gemini South Node: You must learn to let go the need to gossip.  Sometimes you fixate on details that don’t really matter in the big picture.  Start trusting your gut, and go for what you know.  Never distort the truth, no matter how good it may sound coming out of your mouth.  Make sure to not say one thing one day, and do a 180 the next.  Stick to what you know, and only speak the complete truth.

Sagittarius North Node: Finding the fundamental truths in life will make you the most comforted, and satisfied.  Living life by looking at the big picture will always set you on the right track.  Find satisfaction through higher learning, going on adventures, and leaving your comfort zone.  Your spirit is meant to be free.


Cancer South Node: Enabling people is something that you do in order to take care of them.  Release the feeling of always having to take care of everyone in your life.  Sometimes it is naturally for you to also react to every situation with your emotions first without logically thinking things through with your head.  Release the need to be in a relationship that closes you off from the rest of the world, there is too much out there.

Capricorn North Node: Teach yourself how to be emotionally independent.  Looking at things with a cool headed, and an emotionally stable vision will get you where you need to go in life.  Get out of the house, and live a public life.  You have so much to offer the world, and you won’t be able to share it from your couch.  Set attainable goals for your future, and be confidant about them.


Leo South Node: You must release your need to always be the center of attention at all times. Remember to put others than yourself first at times.  Get rid of all unnecessary drama in your life.  Don’t focus on the external and material; but rather the internal, and eternal.

Aquarius North Node: Embrace a team spirit with collaboration from others in your life that matter to you.  Find your sense of purpose in life through volunteering, and other humanitarian work.  Live your life in a sustainable way that is rewarding to your heart and mind, not your wallet.  You can’t take material things to the next lifetime, but you can take your experiences.


Virgo South Node: Feeling the need to be perfect all of the time is something you will need to know is just not humanly possible.  Stop analyzing every single little thing in your life.  Escaping stress through vices will never get you anywhere, only creating anxiety.  You don’t always have to do things the hard way, and you don’t always have to do everything on your own.

Pisces North Node: Embrace your creativity and freedom of mind.  Heal others with your mind and intuition.  Develop your minds spirituality ability reaching beyond the tangible.  Have faith that the universe will take you exactly where you need to go in life.  Surrender yourself to the bigger picture of life.


Libra South Node: Hiding in relationships will never get you anywhere in life.  Taking the path less traveled is not something that sounds appealing to you, but if you can get out of your comfort zone you will find amazing experiences with independence.  Being a peacekeeper and compromising your happiness to make others happy is never a way to go about things. It may work temporarily, but over time will ware on you.

Aries North Node: Embrace your leadership skills by prioritizing your goals and YOU.  Learn how to be comfortable alone.  Like Carrie from Sex and the City says, “The most exciting, challenging, and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself.”  Fight for your beliefs and you will reap the benefits of the risks you take in life.  Learning how to express what you are upset about is healthy and will make others around you feel like you are being more genuine.


Scorpio South Node: You must release the need to manipulate outcomes in situations.  This also count as using sex as a weapon to get what you want.  Locking yourself up in your house during stressful times will also not fix situations.  Finding strength within yourself to be able to stand on your own two feet will benefit you in your life greatly.

Taurus North Node: Finding the beauty in simplicity will help bring you true peace.  Ground yourself in daily habits and a solid routine.  Live in the moment, and find people that you can find true and uncomplicated connections with.  Tell things how they are clearly, directly, and honestly.  Finding a steady means of income will help you find interdependence.


Sagittarius South Node: You must release the feeling to continuously wanderlust in your life.  Finding roots in one place will make you feel safe.  Always fixating on the future will make you miss what is going on in the present.  Having a need to feel like you need to make you a jack of all trades and a master of nothing.  Start focusing your energy more on one area of your life at a time.  You tend to bite off more than you can chew which can become exhausting.

Gemini North Node: Embrace your community by doing things that make your neighborhood a better place to live.  Understand that there is pleasure and power in the NOW.  Make your exploration in life playful and fun.  Always remember to just take one thing at a time.


Capricorn South Node: You must release the need to always bee coolly detached from people.  You will never truly connect to people when you are constantly hiding behind walls.  You have a tendency to use your head before your heart, but some things are meant to be felt.  Release the need to always be at the top n your career.  Finding a work-life balance is crucial to your mental health.  This may be pushed by your need for tangible items, but remember that you cannot take these things with you into the next life.

Cancer North Node: Embrace your sensitivity more often.  It is okay to feel things, and let other people see that you feel them.  Having true compassion for yourself and others is something that will have to be learned throughout the years, but having compassion will warm you.  Finding joy in the simple things, and finding it at home will reward you greatly in your life.


Aquarius South Node: Release the need to always to be in large groups of people.  Finding joy in solitude is crucial to having a healthy relationship with yourself.  Don’t always worry about pleasing others, but remember to do things for yourself too!  Release the need to always be right, even though you are smarter than most.  No one likes a “know it all”.

Leo North Node: Embrace your bright self-expression, and don’t be afraid to collaborate YOUR ideas with other intellectuals.  Start being a leader and not a follower.  Using your feelings instead of your intellect all of the time will lead you down great paths in life.  Your heart is made out of pure gold after all.


Pisces South Node: You must release your false views of the world.  Looking through rose colored glasses is not always the answer to your problems.  Living life scattered with no plans will not bring out the best in your personality.  By not paying attention to detail you can be easily charmed into things you may not want to do.

Virgo North Node: Start solving problems in your life with facts.  Get good routines going on in your life that cause you to be productive.  Support individuals by paying attention to details, and support yourself by reading the fine print of every situation.

Good Luck SSS Readers!

The Innovator
Element: Fire
The first sign of the zodiac, Aries is able to make incredible things happen quickly. Hydro-distilled essences of cinnamon, rose, and angelica fuel a vibrant imagination. Frankincense, benzoin, lavender, and sandalwood cool fiery impulses, encouraging the composure needed to realize visionary plans.

The Sensual Realist
Element: Earth
Ruled by Venus, Taurus is a compassionate sign resistant to the influence of others. Lush earthy notes of geranium, maté, oakmoss, vetiver, and frankincense encourage flexibility and optimism without compromising shrewdness. Neroli, rose, and grapefruit court the senses and lighten the mood, allowing Taurus to shine even more brightly.

The Mastermind
Element: Air
Gemini, symbolized by the twins, is an agile thinker with the dazzling ability to see all angles of an issue. This sign is associated with duality, a concept often confused with duplicity—hence the misguided characterization. Charming notes of violet, gardenia, and angelica echo Gemini’s alluring presence and sparkle against a darker backdrop of amber and leather.

The Levelheaded Bohemian
Element: Water
Cancer is the only sign of the zodiac ruled by the moon. While being adventurous and free spirited, those born under Cancer are known for their cleverness, generosity, and devotion to family. Mandarin, patchouli, and lily of the valley encourage Cancer’s mischievous sense of humor, while sumptuous notes of Tahitian vanilla, amber, and leather make this sign feel right at home.

The Ringleader
Element: Fire
Leo is the only constellation ruled by the sun. Hydro-distilled essences of neroli, bergamot, lemon, and cardamom reinforce Leo’s charisma and inviting style of leadership while smoothing out domineering tendencies. Ambrette seed and jasmine sambac tame Leo’s fire, making gratification come more easily.

The Exacting Romantic
Element: Earth
Virgo is the guardian of quality, and this sign’s pursuit of excellence is often mistaken for arbitrary perfectionism. Baked earth and palo santo reflect deep introspection and a dedication to nuance. Sparkling notes of neroli, temple mandarin, and rose speak to Virgo’s need for beauty and precision, sweetly quieting the critic.

The Connoisseur
Element: Air
Libra, ruled by Venus, is the most approachable of all air signs, balancing elegance, wit, and mischief with legendary skill. Centering essences of rose, grapefruit, and iris fulfill Libra’s unyielding need for beauty, while golden champa, myrtle, and basil calm Libra’s tendency to worry.

The Enigma
Element: Water
Scorpio, the dark horse, the infamous rock star of the zodiac, is nothing if not a mystery. Vetiver and palo santo both respect and soften Scorpio’s iron will, while frankincense and cinnamon reflect Scorpio’s deep spiritual wisdom and vast knowledge. Leather and white Cognac encourage Scorpio’s brooding intellect to lighten up and live joyously in the moment.

The Rolling Stone
Element: Fire
The iconic nomad sign, Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius lives for adventure and tends to be a social butterfly. Neroli and lime reflect Sagittarius’s innate optimism, mutability, and fiery ambition. Grounding essences of cypress, bay leaf, and honeycomb encourage this nomadic sign to appreciate present surroundings.

The Force to Be Reckoned With
Element: Earth
Ruled by Saturn, Capricorn is famous for a nearly heroic sense of commitment, patience, and drive. Iris, frankincense, and Tahitian vanilla speak to Capricorn’s earthy, sensual side and strong need for stability. Neroli, jasmine, and white Cognac invite Capricorn to let go of routine and enjoy the rewards of spontaneity.

The Rebel with a Cause
Element: Air
Aquarius, the third and final air sign, is one of the most charismatic signs of the zodiac. Neroli and rosemary fuel Aquarius’s independence, intellect, and humanitarianism, urging Aquarians to put their global ideals into action. Lavender, white sage, and frankincense soothe anxiety, grounding Aquarius when airy detachment sets in.

The Dreamer
Element: Water
Empathic and sensitive, Pisces, the twelfth sign of the zodiac, is seen as the wisest and most reflective of all. Grounding essences of frankincense, cedarwood, and black pepper guide Pisces through occasionally stormy seas of emotion. Night-blooming jasmine, kewda, and lime keep the waters of creativity abundantly flowing.

Porte a Vie - Sextrology - Sagittarius

Sagittarius women are a ball of fiery free spirited fun that definitely translates in the bedroom.  They are hard to keep around, but if you make this woman feel safe she may just stick around for breakfast...


The Leo Man

-          Dedicated to my grandfather Robert Johnson.  The best Leo man I have ever known.  I miss you so much, but I know I will see you again.  I love you.  RIP.


You won’t find this guy alone too often.  He truly loves to be in the presence of others as much as possible.  He just doesn’t like to waste his wonderfulness without a crowd to watch him.  If you want this man to stick around it is quite simple; adore him, respect him, and compliment him often.  Even if you happen to meet a quiet Leo, which is rare they still want their ego stroked.  These guys are romantic, and will let you know immediately if they are interested in you.  They like to hunt for their prey in a sweet and passionate way.  They like to have a love in their life and if they don’t they tend to get quite sulky.  When they take a girl out on a date, they really do it up.  Expect the best of the best when the Leo man takes you out for a night on the town. 

As great as this man is, and he really is pretty great, he is equally jealous.  He has an opinion just about everything in your life, and he will let you know exactly how he feels.  If you are one of those women that feels it appropriate to make your man jealous by flaunting yourself or throwing yourself on men, this is not the guy for you.  He will not be having any of that.  He is the King and his queen belongs solely to him.  He picked you out of everyone to help rule his kingdom, and doesn’t need you to prove to him that you are desirable.  If you weren’t, he wouldn’t have wanted you for his own in the first place.  You will feel like you are royalty when you are with him often.  He most likely knows just about everyone when you are out on the town.  It is rare that you can walk somewhere without him having to stop and say hello. 

He needs a woman that can soothe him when he is cranky or sulky.  Sometimes his pride gets in the way of his reasoning so you will need to calm him down.  He also does not appreciate any competition in the area of career when it comes to his mate.  He wants to feel like the man and the provider at all times.  He may also want to come before your career as well.  He likes being priority.  I don’t mean to make him sound like a chauvinistic pig by any means, he just has to play the role of the “man of the household”.  If you ARE more successful than he is for whatever reason, you will need to find a balance.  Don’t be too concerned if this guy asks you to give your job up though, it is rare that a Leo man is not successful.  He will also be generous with his money with his one and only.  He loves to climb to the top of his career, because that is where he belongs after all. 

He is one hell of a friend as well.  He loves picking up the check at a table like money is of no object.  Regardless of whether he is made of money or dirt poor, he will always make everyone around him think he is a high roller.  He does it for two reasons; he has a heart made of gold, and he really does like the attention it brings.  He loves to be the life of the party.  He will act like a hardy fool for the attention, but don’t ever mistake him for an idiot.  He knows exactly what he is doing.  Leos know how to get what they want, and they know how to hold onto it at the same time. 

Speaking of keeping things; if you want to keep him for yourself you will need to lavish him with a lot of attention.  Leo men appreciate women for many reasons; their beauty is one, and the attention they get is another.  If you are the jealous type, he will be hard for you to muster.  He is just a flirt.  However, he is loyal, and if he loves you there really is not too much to worry about.  It is kind of like shopping; you can look, but just don’t touch.  Leo men get that concept and if they are happy with you they will honor that. If you do happen to separate, and he wants you back, it will be near next to impossible to resist him.  His humor, his warm arms, and his safe arms feel so safe.  He really does not have a bad bone in his body, he just gets himself into pickles. 

The Leo man is truly a man’s man.  He will love fixing things from door knobs to an old car.  There is something so manly and self-satisfying about it for him.  He will also love playing sports, and when he gets older he will love watching them.  Like a king, he will want you to make appetizers for the game and have a fridge stocked with his favorite beer.  Sundays are truly a Leo day; they do rule the Sun after all.  They also make warm and wonderful fathers.  They are playful and truly a joy with their children.  They will want their children to behave properly, but they will not be overly strict.  If you ever put your children before this man, you will find him to be quite unhappy in your relationship.  Regardless of his age, he needs you for attention and affection. 

The Leo man loves to love and be loved.  His appetite for life and love are insatiable.  He may drive you crazy on occasion, but you will always feel loved if you can leave your ego at the door.  If you can tame this man and really make him yours you will have a man that will make you feel like a Queen every day.  What more on Earth could you want?
