Is the progressed chart used in EA readings? How would it correspond with the North Node?
Yes, progressed charts are used in EA even though JWG really emphasized using the actual transits of the planets first and foremost because they do in fact reflect the ACTUAL position of the planets at any moment in time. The various ways to generate progressions, solar arcs for example, are DERIVED positions rooted in this or that method of progressions.
If you chose to use progressions it is advisable to relate them to what the transiting planets themselves symbolize relative to the ongoing evolutionary journey of any given Soul wherein that journey of course is symbolized by the Pluto paradigm in all charts. The N.Node, the location of it's planetary ruler by house/ sign and aspects to it, correlate how the Soul intends to actualize the core evolutionary intent for the life as symbolized by the polarity point of Pluto.
Thus the transits, and progressions. at any moment in time correlate to how those evolutionary intentions are manifesting by way of the signs and houses they are in, and aspects that they are making to the natal chart itself.

So if I understand correctly the progressed chart "somewhat" (due to possible inaccuracies) shows where the soul intends or intended to evolve, but doesn't necessarily mean the soul has evolved to that point due to choices the ego made during the lifetime so far.
In other words the progressed chart is sort of a indicator of whether or not the ego/personality is going with the souls program?
The natal chart correlates to the Soul’s evolutionary and karmic intention for an entire life. The transits and progressions correlate to timing of events that the Soul creates for itself that reflect or symbolize the actualization of that evolutionary/ karmic intention at any point in time. These events create or generate CHOICES by the Soul, and the ego that is has created in any given life, that of themselves affect how the Soul is evolving because of those choices.
This happens in all of our lives all the time. It is the nature of the choices that the Soul/ego makes relative that then determine how much the Soul/ego is evolving relative to the underlying evolutionary/ karmic intentions for the whole life as symbolized by the Pluto paradigm in the natal chart.
Throughout the lifespan of a Soul/ ego it will continue to create the necessary circumstances as reflected in the transits/ progressions in the natal chart that reflect the underlying evolutionary/ karmic intentions for the entire life.
Whatever those circumstances or events are that the Soul/ ego is creating at any moment in time does not mean that the Soul/ego will automatically make the choices necessary to actualize that underlying evolutionary/karmic intentions. There are three possible reactions, choices, that can be made by the Soul ego relative to the evolutionary intentions symbolized by the transits/ progressions.
1. To totally resist making the choices necessary to evolve.
2. To totally embrace the the evolutionary intentions by way of making the choices that reflect those intentions.
3. To make choices that embrace some of the evolutionary intention but not all of them.
Again, wherever by house, sign, and aspects that the transiting/progressed planet is in will be directly linked by the underlying Pluto paradigm in any given chart. It is that CONTEXT that then becomes the determent of the very nature of the circumstances or events that the Soul creates in order to actualize that underlying context throughout the life.
So, for example, a transit of Saturn moving into the 11th House will ignite the inherent archetypes of the 11th house that will then be shaped or conditioned by the core Pluto paradigm. When that Saturn goes into the 12th, for example, the archetypes of the 12th House will be ignited that are also conditioned by this core Pluto paradigm; and so on.
The point is that any given transit and/or progression by houses/signs/ and aspects to other natal planets will be directly linked, conditioned by, that core Pluto paradigm.
This is how throughout life the core evolutionary / karmic intentions of the Soul is actualized from life to life relative to the transits/ progressions that manifest in time throughout the entire life.
The ego is created by the Soul: it is not independent of it. Thus, the Soul’s program, choices being made by it, are reflected in the ego it has created in each life.
