If your North Node is in Aries, your South Node is in Libra. This means you are supposed to let go of people-pleasing, being overly compromisable, and appeasing. You must learn to embody healthy selfishness so you can express your needs. 

Libra is also independent, yet they’re more prone to codependency than all the other “yang” (fire and air) signs. Essentially, they can become much too reliant on relationships. Emotional, psychological, spiritual, and physical bonds are meant to serve a purpose..
