The energies of Rahu also indicate that individuals with this combination are self-motivated and this helps them to get things done after initiating them.

However, Rahu the North Node is a very tricky and dangerous planet that should be controlled carefully. With that being said, as Saturn becomes host and guide to Rahu the North Node, the dignity of this planet decides how these energies are controlled and directed.

If a dignified Saturn guides Rahu, it indicates that these natives refrain from taking illegal shortcuts while persevering towards their goals.

Yet they still manage to take shortcuts, because this is in the nature of Rahu, but they do it while considering the outcomes carefully. A dignified Saturn ensures that they will not harm anyone or cause major damage to others with their actions.

Saturn also makes them stick to good-natured decisions and goals. With a controlled Rahu the North Node amplifying these traits, they are capable of attaining great results as long as they remain ethical.

If a dignified Saturn supports this ambitious North Node in Capricorn, it provides all the necessary character traits required to meet the high expectations and goals.

First of all, a dignified Saturn endows natives with stability and persistence. They are able to keep pushing forward even when they fae too many obstacles. As their goals are super high, their obstacles are equally big which constantly needs to be undertaken.

Hence, in this situation when Saturn is strong, the high standards benefit them as they motivate themselves to keep striving higher and achieve more and never stop. In fact, Rahu is a thirsty planet that gives endless desire to strive further.

Most importantly, a dignified Saturn provides them with enough respect towards the masses which motivates them to achieve great heights to contribute to the wellbeing of the whole society.

On the contrary, if Saturn is undignified, it indicates that their ambitions become driven by negativity. With undignified Saturn, individuals become driven by personal insecurities rather than contribute to the whole society.

To be more specific, they desperately try to achieve something to prove their worthiness of others. However, their deep insecurities are amplified by the North Node which may lead them to many illicit actions. They may also end up being stressed and in panic which can lead them to make bad decisions.

The insecurities make them harness clever but immoral tactics to get ahead of their competitors. A practical proof when the ambitious becomes driven by negativity is when they start hurting both themselves and their surroundings. That is because a negatively guided Rahu becomes extremely selfish and never shows interest in collective evolution.

Amplified Responsibility

With a dignified Saturn guiding North Node in Capricorn, individuals have greatly amplified a sense of responsibility. That is because strong Saturn gives them this deep urge the fulfill karma or duty in life.

Rahu the North Node, in turn, gives emphasis to this trait. As a result, individuals with this combination are extremely responsible and dutiful. In fact, they are so excessively committed to their duties that they are even willing to bring a lot of personal sacrifices.

On the contrary, if Saturn is undignified, it does exactly the opposite. To be specific, individuals with undignified Saturn and North Node in Capricorn are extremely irresponsible and inclined to abandon their obligations easily.

As Rahu is the master of illusion, they would attempt to use several tricks or illegal shortcuts in an attempt to fulfill their tasks faster to get rid of them as soon as possible. Rahu the North Node can also give them the illusion where they believe they successfully managed to run away from their obligations without anyone noticing.

However, in the long run, when their faults from excessive cutting and rushing surface, they receive unpleasant accusations and tons of more obligations which puts great weight on their shoulders.

Thank you for your insight! My North Node is In my 10th house at 29 degrees Capricorn. It also trines with my sun in Taurus and Pluto in Virgo. I am feeling overwhelmed with the current transits and desperately seeking my calling and purpose.
