The South Node melts the pure vision of the North Node into the daily life (which after all is ruled by the Moon), and allows that vision, intuition, meditation, to actually seep into all the nooks and crannies of our existence. It gets corrupted in the process, and is dissipated by all the trivial concerns that preoccupy us, but it does actually change those things by bringing a small dose of the vision into them. So, after I've had a vision, I have to go to the grocery store, and while I'm shopping, I'll see everything a little differently thanks to that vision -- and I'll always remember that I went to the grocery store right after the vision. Something must follow the vision, since it had a beginning and must have an end -- and the South Node is that power of the psyche which links the vision to whatever follows (and, if you look carefully, to whatever preceded it as well).
