Results of South Node in Taurus

Past Life & Roots

To begin with, the South Node Ketu signifies roots and past life. Accordingly, Ketu in Taurus indicates that the major themes and pinnacles in the past life revolved around the significances of the given zodiac sign.

To be specific, the 2nd zodiac sign Taurus signifies self-worth, family matters, wealth, accumulated assets, resources of mentality, or wisdom. As Taurus is governed by the planet of luxury Venus, it also signifies comforts and a convenient lifestyle.

If Venus, the host and guide of the South Node in Taurus is dignified, it indicates that individuals with this combination experienced good outcomes regarding the significances of Taurus.

More specifically, such individuals were likely blessed with plenty of resources and convenient life in a past incarnation.

A dignified Venus indicates that such a lifestyle was attained through hard work or honest ways. Even though they had high-self worth and financial status, they remained humble and dignified throughout life.

It also indicates that their family was quite big and carried high values and standards of living. The life of these individuals revolved a lot around their family members. That is to say, the family members were in one way or another tightly related to the main activities or goals of these individuals.

Despite all of the positive effects, Ketu is still a malefic entity which also indicates various struggles regarding self-worth, family matters, resources, and additional worldly matters such as authority.



When it comes to family matters, this combination indicates that these individuals experienced a lot of troubles due to family members who worked against these natives at specific periods. This effect is felt also in the current incarnation in form of family members who act unethically with the native often because of jealousy.

Because of that, these natives often feel detached from some or many of their family members. As time passes, the family members who wronged them become attached to them naturally and usually express regret for unethical deeds.

A strong Venus, the guide of Ketu indicates that these struggles helped this native to evolve spiritually and attain great results out of initial struggles by overcoming adversities successfully.

On the contrary, an undignified Venus indicates various past life struggles related to the significances of Taurus which left a deep wound in the souls of individuals with this combination.

An undignified Venus indicates that the main cause of these adversities and failures were related to lack of dignity, integrity, and maturity regarding wealth, assets, family, and self-worth.

More specifically, these souls with South Node in Taurus developed excessive greed regarding material values and wealth which lead them to commit various unethical and/or even sinful deeds in order to satisfy that greed.

In other words, they valued illusionary materialistic values more than real ones, such as ethics, morals, higher wisdom, and spirituality.

As Taurus is related to beauty, these souls have put more importance on themselves than those around them. They likely abandoned close ones including their family members because they valued their needs too much that made them forgot about the ones of others. This resulted in various issues within the family the results of which can be felt in the current incarnation.

All the negative deeds from the past manifest in struggles and shortcomings in the current incarnation which must be corrected in order to make peace with the past, evolve further, and become free from negative karmic bondages. These karmic issues are the primary causes of financial difficulties, stagnation, and family issues.

Financially Wise

Besides the roots, Ketu the South Node also signifies the subconscious and anything else than cognitive thinking. It carries the energies that we cannot control with our minds. Instead, Ketu controls our minds with the subconscious energies.

At the same time, the 2nd zodiac sign Taurus is all about financial matters, wealth, and assets. That is also the reason why this zodiac sign represents the earth element.

When considering the fact that Ketu the South Node signifies the past and these natives have been dealing with financial issues a lot in previous lives, they are naturally talented with financial matters in the present life.

Deep in their subconscious, there is a lot of information from past life experiences which makes them naturally wise in everything that is related to resources, wealth, and assets.

That is to say, they know exactly how to come around with resources in order to be successful in worldly life. From an early age, these individuals seem to have a lot of wisdom and knowledge regarding finances which come out of the blue without studying about it.

As time passes and they grow up, more and more wisdom comes to the surface as the progress in their lives. They are able to apply this natural talent to establish a stable financial foundation for themselves and close ones.



As Ketu is intuitive, it indicates that these natives do not like to spend their energy on thinking about financial matters and thus are naturally inclined to attain financial independence and security.

A lot of outcomes are also dependent by Venus, which is the host and guide to the South Node in Taurus. Not only that, but Venus is also the planet of luxury the condition of which becomes extremely important to determine how the native interacts with materialistic values and available resources.

Accordingly, if Venus is dignified it supports this combination by amplifying the positive results. Namely, with a strong Venus, these natives are blessed with plenty of resources to spend on comforts and luxurious life.

These required resources or wealth are acquired by their inherent wisdom on how to spend wisely in order to grow a strong financial foundation.

What is special and ironic about this combination is that South Node Ketu is about detachment and in earth sign Taurus it detaches these natives from excessive hedonism or lavish lifestyle.

As a result of this effect combined with a strong Venus, these individuals are capable of detaching themselves from comforts and conveyances until a strong financial position is attained. Eventually, they are able to enjoy much more comforts as they manage to discipline themselves to avoid unnecessary expenses.

On the contrary, if Venus is undignified, it indicates various financial hurdles because of past life deeds caused by unethical deeds and excessive greed.



This also means that the native must learn a lot about how to find a balance between spiritual and materialistic values before reaping greater financial rewards in this life.

Alternatively, they might feel that they need and deserve a lot of comfort and luxury in order to be happy and strive in life which can cause financial difficulties and block the growth of personal finances.

Their ungrateful attitude towards luxuries can cause them to spend their resources prematurely which takes away the opportunities to establish a strong financial condition.

The fact that South Node Ketu is an intuitive entity which does not use logical thinking, it makes the condition worse without the support of a strong Venus.

Namely, they rarely analyze whether their expenses are reasonable and not which can be a major cause of their difficult financial condition. That is to say, they make expenses on comforts impulsively without foresight and proper financial planning.

Detached From Materialism

Another reason why this combination of the South Node in Taurus is special is that it detaches these natives subconsciously from overall materialism. That is because detachment is what Ketu is all about while in earth sign Taurus it reduces the desire for worldly pleasures greatly.

The best part of it is that this combination and detachment from materialism does not actually deny the enjoyment of worldly comforts.

That is due to the law of attraction which bases on the theory that we attract everything we detach ourselves from. When we stop chasing luxuries restlessly, then these comforts find us in a natural way. Needing nothing attracts everything.



It is important to note that luxuries and comforts come to the native naturally when Venus, the planet of comforts indicates so or in other words, is dignified.

Most importantly, a dignified Venus gives a mature outlook on life especially when materialistic matters are concerned. That is to say, they have the capacity to find a golden balance between spirituality and worldly pleasures. They seek pleasures in a way that is in full harmony with higher wisdom, ethics, and spiritual values.

Often, they do not even seek them and everything that is related to Venus, including comforts, personal gratification, and the company of the opposite gender. As a result, they attract these matters naturally without the need to seek or chase them.

The detachment from worldly desires also motivates these natives to offer selfless service often and be active in various charitable organizations.

On the contrary, an undignified Venus which misguides the energies of the South Node in Taurus indicates having a lack of comforts and luxuries because of various reasons.

Mainly, weak Venus indicates having an unbalanced attitude towards materialism. More specifically, it gives the inclination to be attached to worldly matters more than spiritual ones which ironically repels worldly success and prosperity as well.

As a very spiritual South Node Ketu is involved in this combination, it also can not reward these natives when they are too much attached to luxuries. It is completely good to have comforts in life but too much attachment towards these matters causes troubles.

That is because when a person has excessive desires for hedonism without being spiritual, it motivates them to become unethical or immoral in the name of these illusionary materialistic values.

In other words, individuals with this set of combinations can be inclined towards fraudulent activities in the name of worldly pleasures.

Selfless & Spiritually Evolved

As the South Node Ketu in Taurus detaches from materialistic values and desires, these natives are unease with everything that is related to wealth.



From deep within, they desire that selflessness would dominate in the world. They also feel uncomfortable gaining from their offered service.

As the practical world is driven by resources, these natives often feel depressed and unfit in the system as they still need to gain profits to function effectively.

Because of that, they often seek ways to integrate their selfless mentality with the practical world. More specifically, they are inclined to give much more value for less amount of gains. While it seems like a foolish idea, it actually attracts more gains and social support.

That is because giving more value to people is what truly satisfies them and thus grants their undivided support to these natives. This becomes their golden way to function effectively in the practical worldly life.

This positive effect is promised when the planet of social equity, balance, harmony, and compassion Venus is dignified. Accordingly, a strong Venus makes them compassionate and loving towards everyone which further motivates them to offer more value before asking something in return.

Their selfless and compassionate nature provided by strong Venus is what makes them distinguished in society. Therefore, they often do not even need to be oriented to gain profits as they are supported by the members of their society.

In addition to that, despite the fact that Venus signifies comforts, it is actually a very spiritual planet which is the reason why it is exalted in the most spiritual zodiac sign Pisces.

Accordingly, South Node in Taurus with a strong Venus also indicates that these individuals are highly spiritually evolved which attracts even more blessings in their lives. That is because being spiritually pure motivates to lead a very dignified and righteous life that attracts divine support in abundance.

On the contrary, an undignified Venus makes them feel financially insecure because of lacking comforts which prevents them from giving selflessly.

Sharp & Harsh Speech

The 2nd zodiac sign Taurus is related to throat chakra or the energies that the native expresses through speech or voice.



The South Node Ketu is a very impulsive, sharp, and stingy entity which in Taurus denotes having very sharp and harsh speech.

These individuals are literally able to build or destroy the worlds using their cutting sharp words. It does not mean that they use painful words all the time.

As Ketu is a spiritual planet, they remain calm most of the time but when they become enraged or provoked, they burst like the wildest volcano and their words leave deep scars to everyone for a very long time.

As Ketu is an intuitive entity, they usually rarely think when they speak out impulsively. Ketu also enhances strong and harsh speech with immense courage. When they speak out, there is not even a single bit of hesitation in their voice felt.

If Venus is dignified, it guides the energies of sharp and courageous South Node Ketu auspiciously and indicates that their sharp and harsh speech benefits them and their surroundings in many ways.

First of all, a dignified Venus is capable of controlling the impulsive and sharp Ketu and ensure that the painful words are used righteously where they are actually necessary.

Venus is the planet of balance and harmony. Therefore if it is dignified it definitely ensures that these natives use their sharp speech in order to protect balance, peace, and harmony. These individuals are very righteous and dignified and also expect ethical behavior from others as well.

On the contrary, if Venus is undignified it reflects harnessing very stingy, painful, and harsh words for selfish purposes. In such a case, these individuals rather damage balance, peace, and harmony instead of promoting it. That is because when actions are motivated by selfish desires it does not motivate them to think about the well being of others.
