Why are the 12 planets in our zodiac related to our Destiny?

Are you familiar with the 12 zodiac signs? At some point, I’m pretty sure that you have an idea about what I’m trying to talk about. I mean, who doesn’t know about the daily horoscopes and zodiac readings, right?
While most of us are fond of the end product, which is the horoscope reading, only a few are quite knowledgeable about the complex nature of horoscopes. With many factors affecting one’s destiny, such are determined by many indicators like date of birth or position of the stars.
But more importantly, did you know that planets are considered as primary determiners of one’s fate? Yes, the proper position of planets does have an impact on one’s destiny. Thus, by having an intricate understanding of their function, one can have a better grasp of their fate and destination in life.
In this E-book, we will be discussing the planets and their intrinsic value that they have in one’s being.

How Are Planets Related To Our Destiny?
In general, astrology seeks to determine one’s destiny by having a proper reading of what the stars and planets have to say. With that, specific meanings and values are assigned to each planet. Furthermore, they are basically divided into two things: the inner and outer planets.
For starters, inner planets include the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, and Venus. They are considered to be fast-moving planets, and thus, affects our daily lives. Inversely, the outer planets such as Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto, are known to be slow-moving. With that, they are responsible for the overall direction that usually takes months or even years in order to manifest.
Furthermore, these planets are also known to be associated with particular zodiac signs. For instance, Mars possesses qualities of aggression and ambition, both of which actively represents Aries. Thus, it is often regarded as the warrior planet. More on this will be discussed in detail in the succeeding sections.
But what does a planet do to our zodiac sign?
In general, planets are known to rule over our zodiac signs. Meaning when these moving celestial bodies come into contact

with our zodiac sign, it creates a reaction as it actives the qualities of our zodiac sign in-conjunction with its own attributes.
By using a combination of the planetary positioning, your zodiac sign, and its movement, your fate is determined by the stars.

Types Of Planetary Movements
Before diving deep into the meaning and function of each planet, it also vital for you to know the basic types of planetary movements. By knowing them, you’ll get to have a general idea when terms like retrograde and solar eclipse a re mentioned.
First, let’s begin with retrograde. Popularly known for the term Mercury Retrograde, a lot of non-astrology enthusiasts caught fire because of this one. Knowing to bring bad luck on almost all levels of one’s life, a person is technically to avoid doing anything at all during this time span.
However, did you know that not all retrogrades are that negative? A Pluto retrograde, for instance, means the backward movement of the planet Pluto. If your sign is affected by this, it may produce a positive result by creating a condition where you get to assess and contemplate on your decisions and actions in life.
As such, the term retrograde simply means a backward movement of planets while a prograde means a forward motion, in comparison to the general direction of your moving planet. By paying attention to its meaning, you’ll be able to tell if a planetary retrograde for your sign will do you good or not.

Moreover, eclipses are also significant events for one’s zodiac sign. As luminaries, the sun and the moon are technically not planets. This is why their movement is always considered.
With that, them overlapping each other means something. Most likely, this means that your ruling planet will be influenced by such. This is basically a toss-coin whose effects can be positive or negative, depending on one’s zodiac sign.
By being familiar with these terms, you won’t be jargonized when reading them. Instead of being blindly afraid when hearing the term retrograde, you’ll be able to step back and assess first what actions to do or how to feel about it.
Similarly, an eclipse that’s taking effect on your planet often means that it is a window time for you to change things. As this once in a blue moon moment happens, knowing its meaning allows you to capitalize on their functions.

Understanding The Function Of Each Planet
Given that you are already familiar with how the celestial system works, taking into consideration the meaning and value of each planet is the next step. By knowing which planets are associated with what, you’ll be able to tell how to approach your fortune.
Sun
Known to be the biggest star, the sun is at the heart of the solar system. As such, all other planets revolve around this life bringer that emits energy until it dies. Technically, without the sun, all other lifeforms will not survive. Similarly, our fate hugely depends on this celestial body, as well.
For their function, the Sun is known to be responsible for our basic personality. Meaning, this celestial body determines the general self that is perceived by society on us. For instance, if you are hardworking, then you must be responsible. And while all signs can share this universal trait, this is often interpreted varyingly. Thus, some signs may appear more hardworking than others.
As for its movement, this Planet changes on a monthly basis. With that, different months have varying dominant signs, as well.

Finally, the Sun is strongly associated with Leo. Representing qualities of pure energy, elegance, and passion, this planet symbolizes one’s basic desires in life. Furthermore, it is also understood to be the bearer of leadership, authority, and male dominance.
Inversely, its negative qualities are the natural consequences of its strength. Generally, this planet can be too dominant and bossy, especially when we are unable to handle its power over us. Thus, its impact on our dominant planet can overamplify our qualities and make us become overconfident.
Moon
While the sun represents the expressed, the moon contains the covert. Often regarded for its mystical nature, the Moon is often a subject of wonder. Understood as earth’s satellite, it reflects the light from the sun during nighttime. As such, it is densely connected to things that are buried deep within us.
For its function, the Moon is known to be responsible for our emotions and subconscious thoughts. Meaning, this celestial body determines how we truly feel about things that are usually based on intuition. For instance, in making choices, one can be rational about it yet think a level of inner discomfort. As it relates strongly to our emotive nature, the Moon sign seeks to represent a part of our humanity. Thus, allowing us to gain access to non-rational spheres of existence such as emotions and spirituality.

As for its movement, this Planet changes every two to three days. With that, it’s a bit more unstable and inconsistent as different moons may affect the way we perceive things.
Finally, the Moon is strongly associated with Cancer. Representing qualities of emotional resonance and innate intuition, this planet symbolizes one’s subconscious desires. Furthermore, it is also understood to be associated with moods, fluctuations, and female energy.
Inversely, its negative qualities are the natural consequences of its strength. Generally, this planet can be too dreamy and unstable, causing us to take actions that we initially would not. Thus, its impact on our dominant planet can tilt the scales of balance between rationality and emotion.
Mercury
Being the closest planet to the sun, Mercury is regarded to be the hottest planet. But more importantly, Mercury comes from its Greek origin, which means “messenger of the gods.” As such, it is profoundly connected to our social spheres of life, particularly the way we communicate with others.
For its function, the planet Mercury is known to be responsible for all types of communication. Meaning, this celestial body determines how we will deliver our thoughts and feelings to others or even to ourselves. For instance, in communicating with others,

we don’t always provide the impression that we want. Instead, we may sometimes say one thing but do the other since we can’t correctly frame our delivery. Thus, observing how mercury relates to our host planet will give us a good idea of how things in this aspect will turn out.
As for its movement, this Planet changes every three to four weeks. With that, it tends to linger around for a moderate span of time.
Finally, the planet Mercury is strongly associated with Gemini and Virgo. Representing qualities of communication and transformation, this planet gives us new ways of understanding and interpreting the world. Furthermore, it is also understood to be associated with rationality, intellect, perceptions, and sibling relationships.
Inversely, its negative qualities are the natural consequences of its strength. Generally, this planet can be too inconsistent and unreliable, causing us to say words that we don’t really mean. Thus, its impact on our dominant planet can tilt the way we relate with others.
Venus
Named after the Roman goddess of love, the planet Venus bears much of what we usually want. Understood as earth’s satellite, it

reflects the light from the sun during nighttime. As such, it is densely connected to things that are buried deep within us.
For its function, the planet Venus is known to be responsible for our love and relationships. Meaning, this celestial body determines how we will blossom on this aspect of our life as it creates instances or blockages for it. For example, in trying to build new relationships with others, romance can be a critical factor that’s decided by perfect timing. Being at the right place at the right time and as a right person is something that Venus has strong influences upon.
As for its movement, this Planet changes every four to five weeks. With that, its influence on you will linger on a moderate span of time, regardless of whether it is good or bad.
Finally, the planet Venus is strongly associated with Taurus and Libra. Representing qualities of arts, wealth, and romance, this planet symbolizes one’s earthly desires. Furthermore, it is also understood to be associated with cultures, self-love, and possessions.
Inversely, its negative qualities are the natural consequences of its strength. Generally, this planet can cause us to display too much vanity and narcissism. Thus, its impact on our dominant planet can tilt the scales on how we see ourselves in conjunction with others.

Mars
Mars is the 4th planet away from the sun. In general, its reddish color is often associated with energy and passion. Also named after the God of War, this planet represents the same qualities of conflict and progress. After all, creation requires destruction, something that this planet gains a subtle understanding of. Thus, its burning energy is something that’s definitely necessary for us to move forward.
For its function, the planet Mars is known to be responsible for our energy and action to move forward. Meaning, this celestial body determines if we will be able to conquer the challenges ahead. For instance, in pursuing a new career, one must remain steadfast as he/she gains skills and experience, which are necessary for progress. At the same time, one must also be courageous and daring, both of which strongly resonates with Mars.
As for its movement, this Planet changes every six to seven weeks. With that, either the lack of drive and passion or the abundance thereof is expected to be stable for this amount of time.
Finally, the planet Mars is strongly associated with Aries. Representing qualities of courage, power, and aggression, this planet represents one’s inner will to progress. Furthermore, it is also understood to be associated with sexuality, physical health, and endurance.

Inversely, its negative qualities are the natural consequences of its strength. Generally, this planet can cause us to become impatient and overly aggressive. Thus, its impact on our dominant planet can tilt the scales of how we act and carry out our goals.
Jupiter
Known as the king of gods, Jupiter ruled over the skies. Similarly, its astrological meaning is closely intertwined with this idea as the planet shares strong resonance with one’s higher thinking skills and spirituality. Also, this planet is often called the “Planet of Luck” as our destinies can be determined by it. With that, this planet often brings transformation and change to our lives.
For its function, the planet Jupiter is known to be responsible for our perspectives and direction in life. Meaning, this celestial body determines how we see things and our part in it. For instance, in pursuing a career, Jupiter enables us to assess the long term direction and how it will impact us as a whole. This brings qualities of reflection and analysis, something that’s native on this planet.
As for its movement, the planet Jupiter changes every 12 – 13 months. As such, it is clearly a part of the outer planets whose actions are considered as slow.

Finally, the planet Jupiter is strongly associated with Sagittarius. Representing qualities of good fortune, prosperity, and broader perspectives, this planet symbolizes one’s way of looking at the world. Furthermore, it is also understood to be associated with sports, optimism, and superconscious mind.
Inversely, its negative qualities are the natural consequences of its strength. Generally, this planet can cause us to become too materialistic and extravagant. Thus, its impact on our dominant planet can tilt the scales of how we choose the kind of life that we want to live.
Saturn
Known to be the god of agriculture and wealth, this planet is often viewed as the taskmaster. Ruling over how we see our work and careers, its influences will often shape this fundamental aspect of our lives.
For its function, the planet Saturn is known to be dominant in our sense of responsibility, discipline, and commitment. Meaning, this celestial body determines how we will devote ourselves to our chosen path of career. For instance, in trying to get a promotion, it is not only about our own skills and talents. More importantly, the way we view our work and execute it determines whether we’re ready for more significant tasks. Saturn determines this, allowing us to be more or less.

As for its movement, this planet changes every two to three years. With that, it often poses a shift after this long span of time. This leads you to continually re-assess your career path.
Finally, the planet Saturn is strongly associated with Capricorn. Representing qualities of experience, wisdom, and elderly respect, this planet symbolizes one’s reverence for themselves and others. Furthermore, it is also understood to be associated with discipline, patience, and tradition.
Inversely, its negative qualities are the natural consequences of its strength. Generally, this planet can cause us to become suspicious and jealous of others. Thus, its impact on our dominant planet can change the way we compare our standing with other people.
Uranus
Uranus is known to be the god of the sky and heavens. As a planet, it is the epitome of change and transformation. With that, the impact of this planet is perhaps the greatest among all, for it can turn your life in the most unexpected ways. Paying attention to its movement is crucial if you want to be wary of sudden changes.
For its function, the planet Uranus is known to represent our innovative and creative energies. Meaning, this celestial body determines how we will celebrate our own sense of originality in things that we do. For instance, when this planet is in action, we might feel a sense of lack and discontent, often challenging us to

build something new for our lives. Thus, like new pages in a book, Uranus opens up new paths in almost any area of our existence.
As for its movement, this planet changes every seven years. Uniquely, this is the only planet that signifies a specific number instead of a range, indicating that most changes in life happen every 7 years. If you look at our lives, the ages of 7, 14, 21, 28, and 35 represent significant changes and shifts.
Finally, the planet Saturn is strongly associated with Aquarius. Representing qualities of transformation, change, and freedom, this planet represents one’s boldness. Furthermore, it is also understood to be related to social reform, scientific progress, and even paranormal discoveries.
Inversely, its negative qualities are the natural consequences of its strength. Generally, this planet can cause us to become rebellious and eccentric. Thus, its impact on our dominant planet can change the way we treat institutions and traditions.
Neptune
As the Roman god of the seas and earthquakes, Neptune was valued by sailors and travelers. Similarly, Neptune is regarded as the planet that strongly resonates with the water element. This implies that the planet has a more sophisticated sense of resonance, especially with one’s feelings and emotions. Thus, it carries a

certain sense of mysticism with it, as such is generally accessed by feeling instead of thinking.
For its function, the planet Neptune is known to be responsible for our sense of spirituality, intuition, and clairvoyance. Meaning, this celestial body determines the highs and lows of our psychic energy. For instance, in experiencing a spiritual awakening, one becomes more aware of the transcendental realities before him/her. Thus, you are often led by this planet to higher spheres of existence.
As for its movement, this planet changes every 10 to 12 years. Just as one’s spirituality takes time to manifest, this slow-moving planet will take years to exhibit its transformational effects.
Finally, the planet Neptune is strongly associated with Pisces. Representing qualities of intuition, selflessness, and cosmic love, this planet symbolizes one’s ability to go beyond what’s there. Furthermore, it is also understood to be associated with arts, diplomacy, and entertainment.
Inversely, its negative qualities are the natural consequences of its strength. Generally, this planet can cause us to become secretive and delusional. Thus, its impact on our dominant planet can make us question our own realities.

Pluto
As the last planet in this series, Pluto is known to be the farthest from the Sun. In consequence, this planet is the slowest moving and coldest. Thus, its effect is often on the long-term side and is generally directed to our overall direction. Paying attention to this planet and what it has to say will generally impact us in the most unique way.
For its function, the planet Pluto is known to be responsible for our transformation. Meaning, this celestial body determines how we will cope with change and despair, both of which are understood to be inevitable in one’s existence. For instance, with the death of a family member, this event usually shapes us or breaks us. Like a crisis, it can either improve our overall actions and outlook or diminish such.
As for its movement, this planet changes every 12 to 15 years. With that, it is the slowest moving planet, often signifying a significant shift in our lives.
Finally, the planet Pluto is strongly associated with Scorpio. Representing qualities of contemplation, transformation, and progression, this planet represents one’s desire to transcend the physical and the mundane. Furthermore, it is also understood to be associated with birth, death, and the subconscious mind.

Inversely, its negative qualities are the natural consequences of its strength. Generally, this planet can cause us to become anti-social and even rebellious. Thus, its impact on our dominant planet can change the way we perceive our own reality.

Final Word
By being able to grasp the meaning of each planet and how it can possibly impact your life, you’ll be able to live it out in accordance with the universe. More often than not, things can seemingly work against us simply because we are not aligned with what the world has set for us.
As such, the way to go is to be mindful of planetary movements. In doing so, it will be easier for you to go with the tide. For instance, you’ll be able to execute your plans in critical areas of your life with better timing and rhythm. This will be crucial not only in your daily choices but also in your overall direction.
Through this E-book, we hope to have imparted some essential information that can help you achieve more in life. Always remember that as planets move, we are also running. This ensures a cosmic balance, something that we need to respect and abide by.

Nodes and What they Are 🔆

47826e91-b335-4ddc-b299-92dad570e991

Introduction
Most of us are usually familiar with the 12 zodiac signs. By reading about it on the internet, we get to have a simple digest of things that we want to know about ourselves. For instance, we can read about today’s horoscope and frame our actions based on it. If it is quite negative, then perhaps we can be a bit prudent for the day. Inversely, if it is generous, then perhaps we can be more daring.
More often than not, horoscopes are used this way. Giving us a general prediction of the near and far future, we open our perspectives to what the universe says about us. Instead of simply relying on our own intuition and logic, the approach of integrating this form of divination will greatly improve your chances of being one with the universe in every choice we make.
As such, deepening your understanding of astrology and natal charts will help you learn more about yourself. By exploring the secret of the astrological nodes, you can unravel what the celestial bodies say about you and your direction in life. Thus, in this E-book, we will be exploring how we can utilize these nodes to our benefit!

What Are Astrological Nodes?
By definition, a node is a point where two lines meet. Like an intersection, nodes can be understood as a merging point of two things. As such, an astrological node is an intersection of two celestial bodies.
In understanding astrology, it is crucial to point out that planetary movements are a major basis of one’s fate. Given that each planet travels around the sun, their trajectories are also taken into account in discussing them. With that, these points are understood to bear a significant meaning with them.
To begin with, the lunar nodes are points where the moon’s orbit went past through your plane during birth. As such, there are two nodes under the lunar node, namely, the north node and the south node.
Simply put, the north node can be understood as your courage zone. Meaning, in this lifetime, you are meant to transcend your old ways by accepting this calling. As you step in this courage zone, you will learn a new aspect of yourself, which will help you become more as an individual.
Inversely, the south node is more like a comfort zone. Containing your natural set of skills and preferences, this node signals who you are. In general, they can be treated as our innate gifts. However, they also represent the things that we need to move forward.
By integrating the nodes in how we live your life, you will get a different sense of self. Thus, in the succeeding sections, you’ll get to unlock the meaning of both north and south nodes in your life.

Aries & Libra Lunar Nodes
As the first pair in this series, the Aries north node challenges us to step out from the supporting role. While Aries is able to provide the much-needed support within the group, this function somehow limits the manifestation of Aries towards greatness. Because this is considered as their comfort zone, they must transcend it in order to unravel a new aspect of their personality.
In this case, Aries must assess how they interact with other people. By reflecting on the nature of their group dynamics, Aries creates an opportunity for growth. One instance that they have to take note of is their passive approach in life. Whether it is in work or in their personal life, the supporting role is often perceived passively. Without the desire to shine or stand-out, Aries can easily be left out to themselves.
Inversely, this Aries north node is Libra’s south node. Meaning, as Aries needs to step-up, Libra needs to step down. By being overly comfortable with this “me-first” mentality, Libra can be good at making things happen on their own. As such, they don’t have to rely on others to realize what they want. Instead, they can simply go for their goals as they have the ability to do so on their own.
With that, Libra must conquer the challenge of humility. By stepping down from the lead role, they will be able to see what they usually don’t – the plight of the supporting role. As such, this will widen the perspective of Libra in things such that when they become leaders again, they would be one’s that will embody a lot of wisdom and not only courage.
Thus, if you are born with an Aries north node or a Libra south node, such means that you’ve mastered relationships in your previous life. By doing so, you are coming strong as you have

great interpersonal skills. The key for you here is to know where to position yourself.
If you have an Aries north node, then most likely, you’ll be dealing with anger issues. Burning with passion and a strong desire to make things happen, you have to be conscious of how you are channeling this energy. Similarly, those with Libra north nodes must learn how to commune with others. This will teach them how to adjust and be one with shared goals.

Taurus and Scorpio Lunar Nodes
Those bearing the Taurus north nodes must be able to release their Scorpio south nodes. In particular, the Scorpio south nodes include a flurry of incoherencies like sexual aggression, being manipulative or secretive, and even relying on others. Consumed by their desire to put up a positive impression, they may overshoot themselves in the process.
As such, their approach should be in line with the Taurus north node. In accepting simplicity and truth, they are able to see a different perspective in life. Instead of being trapped in their usual perception about how things should be, this enlightening approach can lead them towards a more meaningful existence.
If you are bearing a Scorpio north node with a Taurus south node, this means that you basically have to go beyond the comfort zones of Taurus. As an earth sign, Taurus is known to have a strong resonance with the world and worldly concerns. Meaning, they are keen on pursuing things that are physical, sensual, and materialistic.
As such, this Taurus south node is known to be very stubborn, stable, and loyal in their own goals. However, what they lack is the re-assessment of these goals. By identifying its meaning and purpose, re-assessing things can be a key factor in moving forward.
With that, the best direction is the Scorpio north node. In this path, one is to embrace spirituality and mysticism. By reconnecting with the divine, you are able to gain a new sense of meaning that transcends money and sex. Such definitely means that you are going out of your comfort zone and that growth is something imminent as a natural consequence.

Furthermore, the Scorpio north node also suggests a coalition with others. By entering joint ventures and letting others contribute to your financial goals, you’ll be destined towards prosperity.
Given such, the coverage of the Taurus and Scorpio north/south nodes are generally focused on the tension between the physical and the spiritual. By being mindful of this push and pull tension between them, you’ll be able to arrive at new ways to deal with this problem.
The critical approach here for Scorpio north node is to assess what they can do to fix the issue instead of yearning about what- ifs. For the Taurus north node, their task is in making sure to impart to others their blessings and good tidings.

Gemini and Sagittarius Lunar Nodes
For Gemini and Sagittarius, the lunar nodes are generally directed on communication and community-building. As such, these nodes present a polarity between the Gemini and Sagittarian approach to things.
To begin with, having a Gemini north node means that you are yearning for communal stability. As such, your comfort zone should be the Sagittarian south node, which translates to one word – wanderlust.
Yes, having a Gemini north node means that you should practically give up all sorts of instability and inconsistencies in life. Meaning, you are to focus on things that last and ones that will bring constructive outcomes.
For instance, traveling and building new relationships in each city you visit is a strong example of a Sagittarian south node. Because it is their forte to go out there and explore, they seldom create lasting relationships that are anchored on shared communal goals. Instead of pursuing this, your aim is to do away from it and focus on your courage, which primarily rests on sustainable goals and communities.
Inversely, a Sagittarian north node suggests that you should do away from the familiar and the stagnant. What is considered to be foundational and essential are things that you are strongly resonant with. However, whether you like it or not, this type of thinking can also curtail your potentials.
As such, one example of this is transferring to another town for work. Especially when you are coming from a small town, transferring to a bigger one often gives an unprecedented conclusion for you. Whereas you see your hometown as the

perfect place to build yourself in, choosing to drift away will definitely yield greater dividends for you, given that you are a bearer of the Sagittarian north node.
Furthermore, do not forget that Gemini is a communication sign. As such, if you bear the Gemini north node, your courage zone lies in your ability to deal with others. By engaging in a democratic way, you’ll learn to get their respect without forcing it.
Finally, Sagittarius can be associated with one’s spirituality. As such, it can be the key to unlocking not only your personal but also your spiritual perspective. This path leads you to higher levels of uncertainty, but also deeper insights on the way you integrate spirituality in your personal dealings.

Cancer and Capricorn Lunar Nodes
Focused on the innate tension of the anima and the animus, this strong push and pull between feminine and masculine energies are represented by these two zodiac signs. As Cancer exhibits strong qualities of emotion and intuition, they are associated with feminine energy. Inversely, Capricorn, which is an earth sign, shares strong resonance with paternalism, structure, and career.
With that, having a Cancer north node simply means that you are to pursue the values of feminine energy. When you bear a Cancer north node, it also means that you have a Capricorn south node which explains your inherent comfort in worldly goods and logical conclusions. But in order to widen your perspective, you’ll also need to see from the other side.
For instance, in deciding about moral issues, a worldly and rational standpoint can either be consequential or deontological. In the classic case of whether or not it is right to steal a drug in order to save your spouse, the Capricorn south node will favor based on one’s moral preference. However, pursuing a Cancer north node means that you will feel from their shoes and do everything in your power to save them.
Inversely, a Cancer south node means that you have strong intuition and relational skills. In order to cope with life or excel in it, you often rely on this ability to understand and feel the plight of others. As such, you are known to be that prized pacifier in a team which alleviates the tension within the group.
However, while this is your strength, such is also your limit. Because you are never truly able to transcend this, you are limited in an intuitive and emotional approach. Thus, you need to

pursue the Capricorn north node, which centers on the pursuit of personal stability and sufficiency.
Thus, you are shifting from strong motherly instincts to fatherly ones. As a reaction, you will definitely become more logical and instrumental in the way you assess things in your life.
Lastly, always remember that both of these signs are known to cross both the earth and sea. Like a crab, Cancer is at home with the water sign but can also access the earth sign. Similarly, the Capricorn, which is a sea-goat, is at home at land, yet may access the sea. This signals that despite being opposites regarding their node relations, both signs are destined to this calling.

Leo and Aquarius Lunar Nodes
As for Leo and Aquarius, the whole tension is centered upon the rhetoric of the commoners and the royals. Each having contrasting views of the world, these two are naturally different, given how things appear to them by birth. Stemming from a commoner’s perspective, life is meant to be difficult and impoverished such that one must exert all efforts to transcend it. However, from a royal’s perspective, life is meant to be lived in the most grandiose way as they rule over themselves and others.
As such, if you have a Leo north node, this means that you have lived your past life in plight and impoverishment. While you may be comfortable in these struggles, it takes a lot of courage to step out of them and transcend your situation. With that, you must look at how you can live the life of the royals in your own way.
One way to do this is to change your environment. Whereas you were used to hanging out with people of your league, shifting to those you can’t reach will force you to metamorphosis. By learning new concepts from the royals themselves, you’ll get to see the other side of the coin.
Inversely, having an Aquarius north node means that your past life was centered on royalty. Perhaps, you were living a life of prestige and honor as you were a son or daughter of a duke. But in this lifetime, the cosmic alignments point towards your task of resonating with the marginalized.
Meaning, while it may cause you to discomfort to go out there and to commune with those who are in need, it is necessary for you to do so in order to grow. Remember, you are used to with wealth and honor such that they became your comfort zones. But by

learning how to engage with those who are in need, you allow yourself to grow with a broader perspective in life.
Thus, remember that Leo is a bearer of royalty while Aquarius is meant to bring transformation. As long as you are able to envision for yourself how you can apply such perspectives in your life, you’ll be able to get to your courage zone in no time!

Virgo and Pisces Lunar Nodes
With the last set of lunar nodes, the whole discussion centers on the tension between reasonability and creativity. Whereas Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury which is known for its cleverness, Pisces is ruled by the planet Neptune which is heavily associated with dreaminess. Given such, you’re most likely getting the picture here – two conflicting ways of assessing reality.
In this case, a Virgo north node means that you have to transcend your daydreams. By taking a more realistic assessment of what’s going on in your life, you’ll be able to go beyond your usual dreamy approach, as this is your Pisces south node.
For instance, one problem with being too dreamy is that you can be easily stuck in your own thoughts. Instead of actualizing something, the thought of making it can already consume you. As such, the way to go is to analyze things using logic and data, something that an earth sign would do. With that, you’ll integrate a sense of practicality in your approach.
Inversely, a Pisces north node means that you have to somehow give up such a rational approach. Instead of limiting yourself in the facts and the data that’s in your hands, you go beyond it by accepting that the universe is bigger than you and that other forces might be in play.
An example of this would be on how to understand the negative things that are going on in your life right now. Interpreting them from a strictly rational standpoint means that you won’t get to see how universal energy must be restored in your system. Furthermore, such a stringent approach from a Virgo south node lacks creativity and intuition, something that you can draw out from pursuing the Pisces north node.

By taking into account how you can integrate and balance the other side of these two perspectives, you are certainly bound towards self-growth and development. You don’t necessarily have to give up either of them. Instead, you can simply add and prioritize one over the other. After all, your south node is your comfort zone, the spring, which will propel you to heights. So, it wouldn’t make sense to simply ditch them for some new goal that’s set by your north node.

Final Word
In this E-book, we have discussed the Nodes of Fate. As a life plan, these lunar nodes can serve as pointers to us and lead us towards the more progressive options in life.
By essence, what the lunar nodes are trying to teach us is to simply do away from our comfort zones and pursue our courage zones.

Psychic Abilities

Awakening One’s Psychic Abilities
Perhaps, one way or another, we’ve heard of that story about someone who possesses supernatural powers. Able to predict the future, they write documents and proofs that serve as anomalous readings about what will happen next. And whether we like it or not, some do actually have this ability.
For instance, the famous Nostradamus serves as a well-known example of this. As he writes about his prophecies, it turns out that one happens after another, with rationalists being unable to explain how this can happen. After all, who would have thought that this is possible?
With that, this points only to one explanation – the existence of supernatural abilities. Despite being unable to explain them, the presence of psychic abilities often tells us that there exists beyond the tangible and the rational.
Instead of exclusively understanding the world from the lens of the sciences, giving enough credit for these transcendental experiences will allow us to gain a new perspective. By not being limited to earthly desires and knowledge, we open ourselves to things that are beyond us.
Thus, join us on this journey as you unravel a new aspect of yourself! By seeing how you can possibly use your mind to impact your reality, you’ll gain a unique ability, which will help you in numerous ways.
As such, in this E-book, we’ll be thoroughly discussing the 5 basic types of psychic abilities and 8 proven ways to harness them. By reading through, you’ll be able to understand what they are, on top of gaining practical knowledge on how to execute them. 


What are Psychic Abilities?
Generally speaking, psychic abilities are often non-tangible ways of impacting the world. Going beyond the sense of reason and common sense, man is able to connect with the higher powers of the universe and wield them.
If you think of cosmic energy, you can consider its basic form as universal and formless. Because it is such, it can become the life source of all that there is. Regardless of a being’s essence (which can be a stone, plant, human, etc.), this life force is the one that allows it to exist.
With that, psychic abilities are one way of harnessing this universal life force. By employing spiritual methods, one is able to transcend the material world and use paranormal means of actualizing this.
For instance, when one does telepathy, a rational and scientific method won’t be applicable. After all, would there be a way to measure this ability? Of course, we can never measure their strength. Unlike liquids or programs, this thing cannot be quantified or rationalized.
Even so, it doesn’t necessarily deny its existence. Because we are able to experience cases where one can forward these thoughts, people can never deny the truth that there indeed exists a way to do it.
With that, we’ll be moving on by discussing the 5 basic types of psychic abilities. Although there are a lot more that can be added to this list, we’ll focus on the 5 most common and fundamental ways of utilizing this cosmic energy.

Furthermore, this E-book will also continue by outlining 8 ways to awaken one’s psychic abilities. By doing so, you’ll gain access to a practical guide on how you can begin your baby steps in this journey.

Psychic Ability #1: Astral Projection
As one of the most commonly experienced forms of psychic ability, the astral projection has solid multicultural roots. Given that it is experienced universally amongst people who have a higher sense of spirituality, astral projection is something that is renowned as a type of psychic ability.
Basically, astral projection is the ability to separate the mind from the body. Given the presumption of the dichotomy between the brain and the body, some experts have testified that it is indeed possible to separate them.
By doing so, one can achieve things that he/she won’t usually be able to. For instance, astral projection allows a person to travel beyond the physical realm simply because they have shifted to their spiritual existence.
With that, individuals who are able to harness this ability can consciously manipulate their experiences. Unlike dreams where we are bound by the unconscious elements in it, astral projection gives us a fully operational conscious state.
As such, practitioners of this ability tell us that it is even possible to see their spirit/soul as it separates from the body during sleep. Like a ghost, that spirit is able to wander around and perceive things that they usually wouldn’t like energies and auras.
Given this, a lot of people seek to have a higher level of spirituality. By doing so, they will gain access to their own spiritual planes through astral projection itself.

Psychic Ability #2: Clairvoyance
Even if you’re not a fan of America’s Got Talent, the social media space would be enough to tell you about a pair of clairvoyants in their show. Able to perceive the immediate future of particular events, these tricksters present to us what’s commonly referred to as clairvoyance.
To begin with, clairvoyance stems from the French words clair meaning clear and voyance, which means vision. Defined as the ability to gain extrasensory information, this psychic ability is recognized by individuals despite the fact that the general masses are unable to explain such events.
With that, clairvoyance is often used to predict life events. By having this psychic ability, one can manipulate his/her destiny instead of being merely subject to it.
For instance, clairvoyance gives you the power to know if someone in the group is deliberately lying to you. Because you are able to conclude without proof, you don’t need to prepare traps in order to catch them doing it. Instead, you can simply avoid them, for you already know what they’re up to.
By having a peek into the near future, clairvoyance allows you to make better choices in life.

Psychic Ability #3: Intuition
Being the most basic among the bunch, intuition is a psychic ability that almost anyone can master. By using intuition, one is relying on his/her gut instead of actual proofs on something. As such, it gives the user the ability to assess things without the need for evidence.
In its purest form, intuition can be understood as a way of using a combination of one’s emotive and spiritual powers. By sharpening one’s intuition, the user can have a solid hunch about what’s to come.
For instance, this ability is commonly practiced by women, particularly mothers. Even in the absence of facts, a mother will be able to tell if their children are experiencing something wrong in school. All it takes are a combination of one’s feeling and some clues or hints.
These clues are often presented by the child. In this case, the child may appear bothered or uneasy. Even when they are deliberately hiding it, the mother will be able to see through, allowing her to engage in a series of verifications.
Similarly, intuition can also be pure. Without any hint at all, a mother will be able to have that feeling that’s accompanied by goosebumps. Generally, this happens as a vague hunch. By connecting to their spiritual self, intuition manifests through goosebumps or premonitions about themselves or others.

Psychic Ability #4: Precognition
Being a combination of both intuition and clairvoyance, precognition is the ability to predict future events. By tapping into one’s spiritual powers, the user can get a vivid picture of things that are yet to occur in their lives.
But unlike clairvoyance, which is usually short to middle distance of vision, precognition seeks to unravel the far future. For instance, this often happens in dreams that occur years before the actual event. In this case, one can foresee the death of a loved one or the future career of themselves and the like. Because they have the ability to predict the far future, precognition bears its own unique value.
With that, this psychic ability is advantageous in trying to determine one’s path. Given that each person has a different way that’s laid upon them by birth, a person who has the ability to predict one’s direction can give meaning to ones’ struggles.
While others remain confused and conflicted with what’s happening to them, the enlightened person can make sense of the situation. By being able to see how one event connects to the other, practitioners of this spiritual ability are sought for their higher levels of wisdom and thought.

Psychic Ability #5: Telepathy
Often seen in movies, this psychic ability is, perhaps, the most difficult to do. After all, who would believe that one has the power to telepathically communicate thoughts to another person?
In essence, the principle behind telepathy lies in paranormal levels of harnessing the power of the psyche. By being able to pass on ideas without uttering words or read one’s thoughts, telepathy is genuinely a subject of both wonder and mysticism.
Generally speaking, the most recognized mode of this psychic ability is dream telepathy. As one of the main topics in parapsychology, experiments were conducted to prove this ability to communicate through dreams. As images were relayed between the sender and the receiver during sleep, this psychic ability seemed to have crossed the limits of what can be known.
Another form of this is twin telepathy. Given that there is a uniquely strong resonance between twins, it has been theorized that they are the most likely subjects that can engage in mind communication. Thus, this often led to speculation and wonder, even among spiritual practitioners.
Whether or not telepathy can actually be achieved is something that remains a mystery. As such, you can treat it as one of the goals that you might eventually reach as you harness your spiritual abilities.
Given these 5 basic types of psychic abilities, the next question is: how do we actually achieve them? As such, we’ll be laying out 8 simple ways to awaken your psychic abilities. With that, you’ll have a definite starting point from which you can build on. 


First Way: Constant Meditation
As the most basic form of spirituality, constant meditation is the first step to reconnect with yourself. Given that you are pouring almost all your energies and attention to the world, it is only reasonable for you to lose this innate connection between you and your perception of who you are.
Meaning, when we think of our conscious self, what we usually miss out on is the fact that we can be disconnected from it. Assuming that all the choices we make are ours, we forget that there can be a gap between who we are and who we perceive ourselves to be.
As such, meditation is often the best technique to bridge this gap. Given that it employs an active way of reassessing one’s thoughts, meditation can bring into light the subconscious or unconscious ideas that you may have.
By giving yourself some time to pause and reflect, you’ll be able to examine your idle thoughts and what they are trying to communicate to you. Following this course, it becomes easier for you to assess which ones to keep and the ones to reject. Thus, it becomes the first step to awaken your psychic abilities as it exercises the psyche itself.

Second Way: Sharpening your Gut
Though seemingly obvious, sharpening your gut is one of the more proven ways of increasing your psychic abilities. By continually training how to assess your gut thoughts, you’ll be more familiar with specific actions and instances which signal you to engage or back out.
For instance, when meeting someone new, you’ll always have a gut feeling about them. Whether positive or negative, this gut feel will give you a good sense of intuition whether or not it is right for you to engage with them. As such, this idea often leads you to have a favorable or unfavorable initial meeting.
Regardless of the result, the point that you should take note of here is the fact that you can slowly build your intuition. By paying attention to red or green flags, you can maneuver beyond the flowery words that a person may feed you. Because your gut cannot be reasoned with, it is also something that is not corrupted by reason itself.
Furthermore, sharpening your gut is your first step towards intuition. As you practice this skill, you’ll get better over time. As such, what you can do is to write your gut feelings and thoughts about something as they arise, and record how much of them turn out to be true.

Third Way: Dream Journaling
With the 5 types of psychic abilities, we’ve learned that dreams are the most common platform where one can engage freely with his/her spiritual nature. After all, during dreams, we are transferred to a different plane, one that goes beyond our physical reality.
As such, precognition, telepathy, astral projection, and even clairvoyance can manifest in one’s dreams. For instance, dreaming of certain symbols can signify the impending death of a family member or the upcoming romance in your life. While you may be unaware of it, such is already a form of the psychic ability itself.
However, most of us fail to realize this. Instead, what they do is to simply brush it off and think that it’s just another dream. But by doing dream journaling, you can change this.
Using this technique, you will be able to systematically record the events in your dreams. Most notably with what Carl Jung refers to as big ideas, these images can contain something in themselves that is essential in moving forward with one’s psychic abilities.
By taking note of them, you can actively track your dreams, which means that you now have more control instead of seeing them as random and isolated.

Fourth Way: Identifying your Spirit Guide
In attempting to harness your psychic abilities, identifying your spirit guide is another critical element that you can do. Following the roots of shamanism, some spiritual practitioners believe that we all have spirit guides. As such, they often appear to us in dreams and in forms of animals.
With that, different animals have various meanings. Given your spiritual journey, these animals will guide you by showing you the way. After all, treading the spiritual planes of existence can be confusing and complicated in itself. Moreover, they also serve as your protectors. With harmful and malicious energies that can encroach your vulnerable spiritual self, the spirit guide will ensure that you are protected.
As such, they often accompany you on things like astral projection. Being a high level of psychic ability, astral projection can cause you to become corrupted by evil spirits. Just like in the stories where people are unable to return to their bodies, astral projection can be dangerous in itself.
But with the help of a spirit guide, you can ward them off. By carrying a token with you, the spirit guide becomes both physically and spiritually present, as they guard and guide your way. 


Fifth Way: Healing Crystals
Containing the energies of the earth, healing crystals are also considered as active catalysts in attempting to manifest one’s psychic abilities. With its unique functions and low-frequency vibrations, each healing crystal contains energy which can unlock you. After all, these energies are created and stored in these crystals by mother nature itself.
For instance, the crystal amethyst contains much spirituality and mysticism in it. Only by incorporating it in your daily meditation, this healing crystal can sort things out for you and bring you closer to your spiritual self.
Furthermore, you can also use other healing crystals that are directed to the throat and crown chakra. In this case, the crystal lapis lazuli unblocks your throat chakra. This means that your communicative skills will improve, allowing you to better connect with the universe. Similarly, the mystical moonstone can aid you in your dreams as it increases your emotional sensitivity.
With that, healing crystals are to be taken as enhancers for practicing your psychic abilities. By understanding the whole chakra system in conjunction with healing crystals, you’ll know how to meditate and adequately use these crystals to open your spiritual gates.

Sixth Way: Getting a Spiritual Mentor
Just as in all practices, having a mentor with you will improve your progress by tenfold. Compared to only doing your own thing, having a good mentor allows you to take only the correct steps. Especially when you are great at absorbing things like a sponge, the wisdom that your mentor has will be more than enough to propel your progress.
Similarly, developing your psychic abilities will be much easier if you have someone to tell you what to do. Because this whole exercise can be tricky and complicated in itself, paying attention to proper steps will ensure that you’ll learn the correct way to do it.
Because this whole thing can be tricky in itself, ensuring that you are learning from an experienced one will definitely be a big plus for you. Instead of taking unnecessary detours, your mentor will guide you properly on your journey.
After all, in developing your psychic abilities, you should note that this also exposes you to potentially unwanted elements. As you open your astral planes and access your higher spiritual self, negative energies might possibly take over.
However, with the help of a mentor, you’ll ensure that someone got your back.

Seventh Way: Spiritual Awakening
Developing your psychic abilities is strongly intertwined with spiritual awakening. As your first significant step, spiritual awakening opens up your higher self. But how does it happen?
Before you know it, spiritual awakening can occur in the simplest of ways. For instance, the death of a loved one can trigger you to question the meaning of life or if there is life after death. While seemingly paradoxical, these questions point to realities that go beyond our reach, something that spiritual awakening seeks to unlock.
Moving forward, you’ll have a variety of supernatural experiences. Just like the ones mentioned here, you might get premonitions, stronger intuitions, or even experience unintended astral projections during sleep.
In general, it will bring you to an unexplainable sense of the universe. Being able to feel its energy and yet unable to explain it, such cosmic powers will run through you.
With that, fret not for these things is natural when experiencing a spiritual awakening. As long as you are able to recognize them, these things will actually help you in your journey onwards, as they become opportunities for growth.

Eighth Way: Reconnect with Nature
As our life-giver, nature provides us with everything that we need. Whether it is our food, shelter, or even energy, we rely on almost anything to mother nature itself.
However, the development of industrialization only furthered this gap between man and nature. With buildings that block our path and surround us with concrete, it is quite challenging to reconnect with the trees and the wind.
Furthermore, our social media world contributed to this gap. Consumed by the allure of consumerism and online vanity, the difference that this development bridged only brought us farther from the serenity of the ocean.
With that, it takes a thorough reassessment on how disconnected we are from nature. Whether we like it or not, life itself is a spiritual energy source that can aid us in developing psychic abilities.
By reconnecting with nature, we will be able to tap on this energy. Such will bring a renewed sense of self.

Final Word
Awakening your psychic abilities is never an easy task. As such, even this E- book can only do so much in helping you by enlightening you about ideas or concepts that can help bolster your progress.
With that, we’d like to leave you a few pointers to take note of on this journey.
First, you have to be specific on the kind of psychic ability that you want to develop. Given the many options that you can do, paying attention to one skill at a time will ensure steady progress for you. This is crucial since beginners usually try out everything and end up achieving nothing. By not repeating this mistake, you’ll have better odds of being able to harness the ability that you want.
Second, in choosing your psychic ability, make sure that you’ve selected the best method that’s fit for it. For instance, the easiest to develop here is the power of intuition. Because we already have that grounding of gut feeling, intuition is simply a higher form of it. With that, you should ask yourself: which of the methods mentioned will best help me in my progress? By giving a clear cut answer for this, it will be easier for you to perfect this ability.
Third, fill your subconscious with it. Learning and harnessing psychic abilities is undoubtedly no easy task. It surely will take a lot of commitment on your part. Far from being a simple stroll in the park, harnessing these abilities requires you to know more about your spiritual self. With that, the way to go is to commit to it by filling your subconscious thoughts of this desire. In this

way, even your unconscious thoughts will contribute to your overall development.
With these final three tips, we hope that this E-book will become a good take-off point for you. As you take these tips and turn them into action, you’ll be able to harness the power of your mind in no time!
