Ascending (North) and Descending (South) nodes symbolize the karmic growth of a person. The first one, also known as Rahu in the Vedic traditions, denotes the present incarnation and all the aspirations of a person, which should occupy his time and attention as much as possible. The main directions of this activity are visible by the house and the position sign of the North Node . The second, called Ketu, indicates what should be abandoned, since there was a negative experience along this line in the past, despite certain innate skills and talents. Ideally, one should take the good from the house and the sign of the Descending Node and develop in the unfamiliar environment of the Ascending.
If Rahu is in Cancer, a person will have to remember about ancestral roots, look for himself and his vocation in his native land, prioritizing creating a strong family, raising children and helping parents, and not a career and power according to Ketu in Capricorn, which will constantly pull. It is possible to combine these 2 lines, the main thing is not to abandon the values of Cancer for the sake of a selfish desire to engage exclusively in their professional advancement for the sake of honors and status.
