People who have the north node in Libra long for peace and harmony. However, they're just learning to be diplomatic and assert themselves without alienating others. Through their life experiences, they'll realize that relationships of all kinds--marriage, friendship, business, and social--all have an element of compromise and teamwork.
The Lunar North Node
The north node (NN) and the south node (SN) are opposites that are interconnected. Together, they represent a theme woven throughout your life's story. Regardless of your sun sign and the rest of your natal chart, the natural tension between the past (south node) and the future (north node) shapes any given moment in your life.
North Node in Libra
The north node (☊) represents growth and fulfillment. Those with the NN in Libra, the cardinal air sign ruled by Venus, find fulfillment in creating harmonious relationships with others. These individuals are pushed to fight "nice," think before acting, and find ways to cooperate with others. While this is new to them and may take some time and experience to get a handle on, their Libra NN is always there, quietly working in their favor--offering them life's most profound lessons regarding relationships.
Your Life's Lesson
Although they try to compromise and negotiate to please others, they continually act in their own self-interest. That's their conundrum in life - how can "I act in my own self-interest" and still "please others." Overall, those with their NN in Libra are strong and intelligent individuals learning to share, negotiate, compromise, and interact peacefully with others.
North Node in Libra Dates
The north node spends about 18 months in each sign. Everyone born during the dates listed below has a Libra North node. However, if you were born near the beginning or end date, you'll need to have your birth chart calculated.

- Jan 7, 1977 - Jul 5, 1978

South Node in Aries
The south node (☋) represents habit patterns developed in your past life. If you prefer, it could be childhood experiences or even ancestral memory. Aries is the cardinal fire sign ruled by Mars. This means their natural instinct (done without thought) is to fight for what they want and be self-reliant. They could have been in do-or-die situations in a past life, or they may have had to fend for themselves as children. There are many scenarios. But whatever the reason, what feels familiar, secure, and most natural to them is taking care of themselves and acting in their own self-interest.
Aries South Node at Its Best
To move into their Libra NN, it's essential to understand and make the best of the Aries SN. Those with an Aries SN are confident, quick, feisty, assertive, and have a strong sense of self. These are behaviors to be happy about. At their best, they can be respected for their willingness to go forward with projects, their can-do attitude, and their willingness to bravely stand up for what's right.
Aries South Node Habits to Leave Behind
When taken to the extreme, an Aries SN can be impulsive, blunt, hot-headed, crude, selfish, chauvinistic, and destructive. At their worst, they bulldozed their way through people, things, and life. They have a nasty habit of pushing to the front of the line, literally and figuratively. They can be "it's my way or the highway" bossy individuals. However, these negative manifestations will sooner or later make them realize that they can't win every fight or always be first or right, and that being overly aggressive alienates them from others and limits their success.
Balancing Libra North Node and Aries South Node
Throughout their lives, individuals with this nodal opposition experience an inner tug-of-war between their Libra NN's need for relationships and Aries SN's instinct to have everything their way. The challenge of this life's theme is to find a healthy balance between being their own person and compromising with others. This lesson will challenge them when it comes to their interactions with others.
Libra North Node Relationships
Those with a Libra NN are destined to learn much about life from their relationships and partnerships. While they may feel more secure being self-reliant, life will push them to work in collaboration with others. It's a hard lesson to learn that not everything in life is about them. They must realize they can't control others, and there's a limit to getting what they want. Eventually, they'll realize that it's much easier to get what they want by being polite rather than bossy and demanding.
Famous Individuals With a Libra North Node
Born October 9, 1940, John Lennon is a beautiful example of a famous person with a Libra NN. John was the rowdy member of the Beatles. Long before Give Peace a Chance and Imagine (Libra NN songs), he was an angry outspoken young man (Aries SN) who upset a lot of people. Even Yoko said when they met that he was "a very chauvinistic kind of macho male." But she also said, "that man started to gradually disappear as we were together."
In a 1980 interview, Lennon said that Imagine, his most beloved song, "should be credited Lennon-Ono." Lennon went on to say, "but those days I was a bit more selfish, bit more macho, and I sort of omitted to mention her contribution." While Lennon never lost his caustic wit or outspokenness, he added the capacity to share, love, and sing for peace - as a man, a husband, and a father.
