Results of South Node in Virgo

Past Life & Roots

Additionally, the activities also could have possibly included activities related to strategy, complex analysis, and solving mysteries using practical data.

As the 6th sign signifies obstacles, the past lives of these natives were full of trials, challenges, and opposition.

Whether they experienced good results out of the above-mentioned significances and used their talents and characteristics in a pious way can be determined by the dignity of Mercury, which is the host and guide to South Node Ketu in Virgo.

Accordingly, if Mercury is dignified, it indicates that there were various positive experiences in the past lives of individuals with this set of combinations.

In fact, their main activity involved overcoming adversities which actually favored them and were major stepping stones towards success.

Each time they had overcome an obstacle, not only that they achieved a milestone but also became wiser and stronger which enabled them to conquer even greater heights.

As a result, in current lives, these natives must overcome various trials which manifest as divine tests and opportunities to correct mistakes made in past lives. However, as per the law of karma, they are prompted to endure the same situations or pain they caused to others in their past lives.

Therefore, the difficult results and adversities given by the South Node Ketu during its significant periods are tightly related to their own past life deeds. The best way to make peace with the past is to accept everything, forgive everyone, and never hold any grudges.

Detached From Criticism & Strictness

The 6th zodiac sign Virgo is all about attention to detail and criticism while South Node Ketu signifies detachment and dissolution.

Therefore, individuals with this combination are inherently detached from criticism and tend to be less detail-oriented.

As their past life was all about strictness, discipline, and flawless service, in this incarnation they have less interest in such a way of living.

Instead of this, they are more concentrated on the matters of the water sign Pisces, which is directly opposite to Virgo where the North Node resides.

That is to say, they prefer working and living in a way that helps their soul to relax deeply and not stress about anything.

Whether this trait benefits them or not, is largely decided by the dignity of Mercury, which is the host and guide of the South Node in Virgo.

If Mercury is dignified, it shows that they are able to enjoy generally a stress-free life and do not have to confront major adversities in life. It also means that they do not have to use aggression, strictness, or criticism in their main activities.

When looked at a deeper perspective, they have done a lot of hard work and endured a lot in their previous lives and a dignified Mercury shows that they fulfilled it successfully. This means that in this life they are free from heavy-duty work for the most part.

On the contrary, an undignified Mercury indicates unfulfilled duties in past lives which shows that they have to struggle more in this life by enduring difficulties during significant periods of South Node Ketu.

The adversities can manifest in form of dangerous enemies, difficult litigations, unrewarded hard work, and other similar matters.

What makes it difficult is the fact that they dislike being in service and working hard but at the same time are prompted to do it with increased obstacles. After enduring these periods, they are free from negative karmic debts that cause unexplained hindrances in life.

In addition to that, negatively guided Ketu in Virgo brings out negative qualities of this sign making these individuals cynical, anxious, stressed, and overly-critical. Because of amplified worries and stress, they tend to be emotionally dull as well.

Amplified Imagination & Intuition

Virgo represents the earth element which denotes practicality and worldly matters. Therefore, South Node Ketu in this sign dissolves these qualities and promotes intuition instead of practical down-to-earth thinking.

This effect complements the placement of the North Node located in the opposite sign Pisces, where it directs the focus of current lifepath to this gentle sign.

Pisces represents the water element which is completely different from the one of earth. More specifically, the water element signifies the nourishment of the body and souls.

In addition to that, Pisces is the 12th zodiac sign denotes spirituality, detachment, and letting go of worldly matters while Virgo denotes practical worldly matters.

South Node Ketu is also a very intuitive and spiritual planet which in addition to dissolving and decreasing the focus on practical matters also amplifies the intuition of the opposite water sign.

As the traits of Virgo are decreased, it gives more room for the traits of Pisces such as spirituality, generosity, imagination, and creativity to thrive.

Accordingly, individuals with this combination are inherently very intuitive and have amplified imagination. They are less interested in complex tasks that require cognitive skills and more drawn into activities where intuitive intelligence and imagination are appreciated.

If Mercury is dignified, it shows that their intelligence is very strong despite the fact that the South Node in Virgo dissolves their analytical thinking and interest towards practical matters.

A strong Mercury which is connected with intuitive South Node Ketu also shows that their intelligence is integrated with their spiritual side and expressed through imagination and creativity.

Misleading intuition, in turn, causes them to make bad decisions based on wrong impulses or signals.

They might misunderstand others and other environmental signals which interrupt their intuition and affects it adversely.

In addition to that, an undignified Mercury as the host of the South Node in Virgo indicates the possibility that these individuals use their creativity unethically for selfish purposes.

Flexible & Resourceful
