A POEM FOR A 1ST HOUSE ARIES NORTH NODE
Having my North Node in Aries, and in Aries own 1st house, the theme of developing self-assertiveness and self-love has always been a constant focus in my life. Add to that Chiron conjunct my Asc, and we have the needed recipe for an injured self-image and a tendency to sacrifice the needs of Self to please others and make them happy.

The above had always been a recurring theme in my life, until about 3-5 years ago when I decided to change all that for the better. But, my self-undoing tendencies - especially my tendency to accept and even to get into unbalanced relationships and friendships - are far from being fully handled and healed; I always fall back in similar patterns, though never as intense and as frequent as before.

Having one´s North Node in Aries in our Asc, presupposes a very long journey into knowing one´s true Self, and into developing an adequate and healthy self-love that allow us to only accept as friends, those who has truly earned the trust and privilege needed as demonstrated by their ACTIONS.

The following poem is a veeeery long one, but it is a GREAT read for those of you who share that same placement, of either (or BOTH) the North Node in Aries in the Asc, or Chiron conjunct the Asc.

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did, and that its incredible truths can communicate to you in the same helpful way they did to me.


Kim McMillen

The ego seems to be in my conscious heavily this year, inner workings and pure soul intention vs the false self.

Excellent poem.
