This aspect refers to one person’s Chiron conjunct another person’s North Node. This would be in a synastry chart, which is one person’s natal(birth chart) compared to another person’s natal(birth) chart. I have seen Chiron conjunct the NN in synastry, several times. It is not common, but it does occur, so I wanted to write about it. I have direct experience, too, so I can talk from that, which is always, the most compelling. I have great respect for the Nodes, in synastry. There is , both, a North Node and a South Node. The South Node shows the areas in which the couple will be comfortable. If Venus is conjunct the SN, the couple will be comfortable sharing love. If Eros is conjunct the SN, the couple will be comfortable sharing eroticism.
The NN is the opposite, in the sense that it is not a comfort zone, but an aspirational one. If the SN is where one has been. The NN is where one is going. Going new places is always more frightening than staying in one’scomfort zone Hence, the NN is fraught with challenges. Think of something that has challenged you, such as your first job or going off to college. The NN embodies that sentiment.
In synastry, if the planet of pain, Chiron, in one person, touches the NN of the other person, the relationship will have a pain theme. One may ask, “Should I leave the relationship based on this?” I could not answer that, obviously. In every synastry, there will be hard factors. I will try to explain how I see Chiron conjunct the NN playing out in a long term marriage. Chiron conjunct the NN does NOT mean that every minute of the marriage will be fraught with pain. Chiron is an attractor to people,also. In many synastries, Chrion conjuncts planets between people. This is not, necessarily bad. One shares one’s pain in one’s intimate relationships. However, with Chiron conjunct the NN in synastry, one of the main themes, perhaps THE main theme will BE pain, in my experience. The pain is not a 24/7 event. There are many periods of time which are not painful. There are many shared events which are not painful. However, if one looks at the relationship, as a whole , from a future vantage point,for example, one would describe it as having a theme of pain. That is my my point of view. Please comment on anything, if you care to. I welcome any comments, as always.
