Results of South Node in Libra

Past Life & Roots

To start with, this combination of South Node Ketu in Libra indicates that the main activities and life events in past lives were deeply related to the significances of the given zodiac sign.

Libra is the 7th zodiac sign which is located exactly in the middle of the zodiac belt and therefore signifies equilibrium, balance, harmony, compromises, compassion, societal harmony, etc.

Whether natives with this combination embodied positive qualities of this sign and experienced good outcomes in past lives can be determined by the dignity of the host and guide of the South Node in Libra, which is Venus.

Accordingly, a dignified Venus indicates that these individuals were very harmonious, balanced, and compassionate in their past lives which also made them very influential and honored in society.

They were the ones who strived to achieve balance within large groups of people through signing agreements and finding compromises between parties in various relationships. Herein a dignified Venus shows that they were successful in achieving balance in their society.

As the 7th zodiac sign Libra represents society and public life, it shows that these individuals were tightly related to various kinds of social work.

Libra is also symbolized by scales and therefore is tightly related to societal rules and regulations.

Accordingly, South Node Ketu in this given sign also indicates the possibility that these individuals were important law-makers in addition to peacemakers.

They were important people who upheld societal norms in order to maintain traditions and societal values which are important to keep the society functioning.

A dignified Venus shows that they were dignified and worked diligently towards their goals which were motivated by good intentions towards everyone in their society or surroundings.

Their good intentions and selfless goals are what gave them success in their undertakings along with enormous societal support in their past lives.

Libra is of cardinal modality which denotes initiation and ability to take action. Hence, this combination of South Node in Libra along with dignified Venus shows that even though they were rather gentle, they were great initiators and action takers.

It shows that they made their contribution actively towards the societal harmony and the wellbeing of the members of their society. Their initiation powers were best expressed as efforts to find balance in every aspect of life.

As Libra is a gentle sign, their initiation powers were generally expressed through activities that did not involve direct leadership or similar mentally difficult activities. Instead, they influenced groups of people through regulations and other gentle tactics.

Alternatively, the ruler o Libra, Venus also signifies arts which shows the likelihood that they used creativity in their main activities in past lives through which they gained a lot of public recognition and set new important trends.

On the contrary, an undignified Venus signifies various struggles, obstacles, and unfulfilled karmic duties in the past life.

That is because when Venus, the guide of South Node Ketu in Libra is undignified, it shows that these individuals failed in fulfilling their main duties in life due to unethical deeds.

More specifically, an undignified Venus indicates having a lack of compassion and love towards the society which was likely the main cause of hindrances and obstacles in their past lives.

With that being said, instead of promoting peace and balance, they were the ones who damaged societal harmony through initiating conflicts, quarrels, and disagreements.

Alternatively, if Venus is very weak, it indicates that they took advantage of societal support for their personal benefit while deceiving the members of their society.

Straightforward & Fiery

Libra is a very peaceful sign which loves to tackle everything in life with gentle and diplomatic tactics and avoid confrontation as much as possible.

At the same time, South Node Ketu signifies detachment and therefore it isolates individuals with this combination from the traits of Libra to help concentrate more on the ones of the opposite sign, which is Aries.

Aries being the opposite sign of Libra means that it is completely different from it. Namely, Aries is the 1st sign of action which prefers to solve issues directly by confronting opponents fearlessly.

As a fire sign, Aries often promotes aggressive and straightforward tactics to battle adversities in life. The tactics of both signs Libra and Aries are equally efficient and good as long as harnessed righteously whenever suitable and necessary.

Accordingly, individuals with this combination are very straightforward, fiery, and confrontational in the current incarnation. In the past, they used an indirect and gentle approach to solving various issues, but in this life, they are steered towards using fiery and direct tactics.

As they are fiery, they also have increased impatience and desire to see the results of their actions quickly without a delay. This also means that when they are limited or opposed, they respond in a very bitter and sharp way, just like the nature of the astrological entity Ketu suggests.

Enormous Blind Courage & Determination

Libra as the sign of scales and balance takes a lot of time to consider the pros and cons of different maters and scenarios in life.

South Node Ketu in Libra dissolves this quality and creates a person who has a deep desire to make decisions quickly without second-guessing.

Moreover, the astrological entity Ketu does not rely on cognitive reasoning. Instead, it relies purely on gut feelings and intuition.

When it comes to this combination, it benefits these natives because Ketu helps to detach these natives from prolonged processes of calculation, calibration, and consideration of different aspects.

In other words, individuals with this combination have enormous blind courage as they trust their gut feelings in making decisions.

The opposite sign to Libra is another cardinal sign Aries which reveals that their decision-making skills become amplified to a great extent.

That is mainly because the time for making decisions becomes decreased which makes them more efficient and effective in solving various issues that need to be tackled directly and immediately.

In other words, individuals with this combination are extremely determined and goal-oriented. They have a deep urge to get things done quickly and deal with adversities immediately.

Whether this trait benefits these natives and their surroundings is highly dependent on the dignity of Venus.

Accordingly, a dignified Venus shows that their intuition leads them towards making good and effective decisions that provide promising outcomes.

A dignified Venus also shows that they are able to maintain their dignity and respect towards society while being strict and straightforward. They respect justice so much that they are willing to fight for it directly without any fear.

They will always do what needs to be done to maintain justice and righteousness within society. In other words, a dignified Venus amplifies this effect and directs their fiery energies towards pious acts.

When their enormous courage which is provided by South Node Ketu in Libra is supported by a dignified planet of justice, which is Venus, the actions based on intuition and sudden impulses are motivated by good intentions towards others.

It also shows that their sudden impulses and actions taken based on them benefit them and their society. They are determined to perform good acts. With intuitive courage, nothing can stop them as they never second guess their decisions.

In addition to that, as they managed to fulfill their duties successfully with dignity in past lives, they are blessed to be fortunate in their undertakings in this life.

That is to say, their determination, effort, and actions promise great outcomes and fruits that are direct manifestations for good deeds done in the past. With good karma supporting their efforts, they are more likely to become prosperous.

On the contrary, if Venus is undignified, it indicates that their gut feelings might mislead them and prompt them to take bad decisions that cause harm to themselves and their surroundings.

In addition to that, an undignified Venus also does not provide a sufficient amount of compassion and respect towards the code of ethics and justice.

This means that they are inclined to harness unethical tactics without considering the outcomes of their actions and how it affects those around them.

It also means that their decisions that are motivated by negative impulses damage the harmony in their surroundings. They are prone to deliberately initiate disputes with their fiery nature which is misguided by weakened Venus.

Because of the lack of respect and compassion towards others, they have a hard time to establish solid partnerships with others. Hence, this set of combinations also indicates an increased likelihood of losses in partnerships.

Alternatively, during the significant periods of South Node Ketu, they are prompted to endure adversities, unfair treatment, and possibly deception in order to exhaust negative karma caused by unethical deeds in past lives.

The ones who treat them unfairly during this period are possibly the ones they abandoned, ill-treated, or deceived in their past lives.

With that being said, it is highly advised to forgive anyone who treats them unfairly in order to make peace with the past and progress in current life without hindrances of bad karma.

Fluctuating Relations

South Node Ketu is a very sharp entity which scatters everything it touches, just like a lightning strike. In Libra, which is the 7th zodiac sign of partnerships, it causes these matters to branch exponentially.

This effect manifests in form of instability in various relationships, be it related to ventures, career, or marital. When diving deep into this effect, it is caused by their insatiable thirst for interacting with a lot of people. As a result, they are prone to change their groups, venture partners, and career often.

Alternatively, this combination can indicate that these individuals are very independent and therefore have an increased desire to manifest personal unique ideas without letting anyone change their minds.

They want to take action which helps to establish their goals and respond to opposing viewpoints negatively. This, in turn, causes friction with possible venture partners which can ultimately lead to separation from them.

In addition to that, as Ketu signifies isolation and detachment, in the sign of partnerships, it shows that these individuals are extremely independent and therefore prefer to delay marriage or isolate themselves from it completely. At the same time, they seek multiple relationships for personal gratification and pleasure.

If Venus is dignified, it promises good outcomes of this effect. Namely, it gives them good reasons to build a lot of relationships with whom to manifest a tremendous amount of ideas into reality.

That is because Venus as the ruler of the 7th sign Libra which denotes society and partnerships makes them very respectful towards these matters.

It also increases their compassion which enables them to consider the viewpoints of possible venture partners or members of society and adjust their ideas and plan of action according to the demands of the majority.

As the opposite sign to Libra which is Aries makes them extremely restless and eager to take action, forming more relationships in marketplaces, workspace, and personal life is extremely beneficial for them.

With a tremendous amount of passion and energy provided by the South Node in Libra and North Node in Aries axis while a dignified Venus supports it, they are able to handle all these relationships with ease without losing direction in life.

With a dignified Venus, this benefits them as by postponing marriage they are able to find the perfect partner with whom to build a united life path.

By delaying committing to relationships early, they are able to learn more about themselves and develop strong self-love which eventually attracts a suitable partner to them naturally.

However, this process still requires them to meet many people to know who is best for them and this can cause many failed relationships. Luckily, a strong and dignified planet of love and relationships Venus ensures a suitable partner and blissful marriage eventually.

On the contrary, an undignified Venus also weakens South Node Ketu in Libra which shows that the fluctuations in relationships are mainly caused due to their inability to find direction in these matters.

A weak Venus also makes them ungrateful which shows that they lose interest in partnerships quickly and therefore inclined to abandon tasks, projects, and people more easily.

Because of this uncertainty and lack of direction, they attract a lot of difficult relationships which can cause hindrances in fulfilling major goals in life.

Regarding relationships, they face many disappointments which may cause loss of interest to form a life partnership with someone. A weak Venus while South Node is in Libra also indicates obstacles and increased losses in marriage or life partnership.
