Check Your Stars, Find the One!
When looking at karmic relationships in a chart, the points known as the moon’s nodes are essential. This is where the sun and moon cross paths, creating eclipses. In the beginning of astrology, predicting the date of an eclipse was essential. A failure to do so could cause astrologers to “lose their heads” in a very literal sense. This is how powerful these points are in the skies.
As the nodal axis changes signs every year and one-half, making a full cycle of the zodiac every eighteen or nineteen years, you can find your “soul group.” You share a common mission and common talents. You will often find a soulmate among this group.
Someone nine to ten years older than you will have the reverse of your nodal axis and they will often carry the same karma as your group. You will be walking the opposite path and can be of great benefit to each other.
To recognize your Soul Group, even when you don’t know where your nodal axis is, here are the qualities:
North Node in Aries/South Node in Libra: Your natural talent is that of charm, relating to others and justice. Your challenge is to take care of yourself. Those with the reverse (North Node in Libra/South Node in Aries) have the opposite lesson – learning to always seek balance and think of the other person.
North Node in Taurus/South Node in Scorpio: You are a natural at instinctually digging to the depths of any situation or person. Your challenge is to experience the “bubble bath and champagne” part of life. Those with the reverse tread the opposite path. You know and express the loveliness of life and must learn to look beneath the surface.
North Node in Gemini/South Node in Sagittarius: You are a natural at seeing the big picture and wanting to share your vision with others. You have agility in your communication skills. If you have the opposite axis, your challenge is in seeing the “big picture” and recognizing what serves the common good.
North Node in Cancer/South Node in Capricorn: You are a natural builder in “black and white” terms. You acknowledge emotion but don’t bowing to its demands. Opposite nodal axis people will be sensitive types who need to learn that structure is required whenever anything is being built – an organization, a building or a home.
North Node in Leo/South Node in Aquarius: While you have an original view of all things in life and alternative lifestyles, developing leadership qualities to organize groups around your beliefs are your challenge. Reverse nodal people have natural leadership skills but must learn to find their support group of friends.
North Node in Virgo/South Node in Pisces: You are the original “workaholic.” From your point of view, you’re doing what you love and get great satisfaction from your efficiency. Your challenge is in trusting your intuitive side to inspire you to do your “true” work. Reverse nodal people will gravitate to using their intuition and must learn to organize these pictures into a form of communication.
You’re likely to see yourself in one of these descriptions. Find the people aligned with you with the same or opposite talent and you are bound to fulfill your mission in love and life.
