South Node Transits: A Guide to Clearing the Negative and Embracing the Positive
What are South Node Transits?
The South Node is one of the two points where the Moon's orbit intersects with the ecliptic. In astrology, it represents our past, our comfort zone, and our karmic baggage. When the South Node transits a natal planet, it's like a cosmic reset button. This transit is designed to clear out any negative manifestations associated with that planet, for good. It's an opportunity to leave behind old habits, mindsets, and beliefs that have been holding you back.
The Power of South Node Conjunct Planets
During a South Node transit in conjunction with a natal planet, you have the power to cut ties with energies that have been impacting you negatively. These are often things that you've struggled with for quite some time but haven't been able to shake. The South Node portal is like a hole opening up below your energy field and sucking out whatever is poured into it. This energy is neutral, so it's up to you to consciously offer up what you want to release.
The good news is that this transit also allows you to embrace the positive energy associated with that planet. By letting go of the negative, you make space for the positive to come in. This is a powerful opportunity for growth and transformation.

Support for your transit
Transits can feel so intense because the energy is working on us, even if we're engaging with it well or not. Over the past 7 years, my favorite way to create positive changes in alignment with my Astrology, natal and transit, is to work with flower essences to support the transformational energy already available. You can read more about working with flower essences here, or you can experience their support yourself below.

South Node Conjunct Your Sun: Building Self-Confidence & Vitality
The South Node conjunct your sun is a powerful transit that offers the opportunity to let go of negative energies that harm your self-confidence, creativity, and health. This transit is like a cosmic reset button that allows you to shed parts of your personality that no longer serve you. For example, if you've been a heavy drinker and partier, you may no longer wish to identify as that person, and that change can be made at this time.
As the Sun is linked to your vital energies, any habits or beliefs that diminish your "light" in any capacity are ready to be eradicated. Negative self-talk such as "I'm never the person who gets good attention," "I'm addicted to sugar," "I'll always be a scatterbrain who never gets a promotion," or "I'll never be a good enough artist to make a living doing what I love" can be released during this transit. By shedding old identity masks that hinder your growth, you make space for positive growth and transformation.
During the South Node transit in conjunction with your Sun, your task is to incorporate a new "I AM" into your life. One that brings you more confidence, pleasure, and vitality. Recognize the signs of the transit and consciously release negative energy to make space for positive growth. The South Node portal is neutral, so it's up to you to decide what to bring into the future.
Embrace the energy of the South Node and let it propel you on your journey of self-discovery. By letting go of the negative, you make space for the positive to come in. This is a powerful opportunity for growth and transformation.
