Astrological soulmate tips using do it yourself karmic astrology

Here, I'm discussing your astrological soulmate relationship, using the principles of esoteric astrology (a.k.a. karmic astrology) which helps you discover your soul's purpose and piece together the soulmate answers unique to you.

Astrology for soulmates, or karmic astrology, is important if you want to consciously attract your soulmate? Because we meet our soulmates on our soul's path.

The heart of an astrological chart according to esoteric astrology are the moon's nodes, or points where the moon intercepts the earth's orbit around the sun.

Your nodes diametrically oppose one another. So if your south node is in Capricorn, your North Node would be in the opposite sign of Cancer and your soul's path would be moving from masculine, earthy Capricorn energies, into light, feminine Cancer.

The heart of your chart

The South Node represents our karmic past and symbolizes innate talents. Karmically, it also represents lifetimes in which in which we've mastered certain lessons — AND where we've become so comfy, we also get stuck in the ‘lower vibration” of that sign.

For example, my South Node is Capricorn — I'm naturally precise, pragmatic and dependable. BUT! When I'm stressed I can get very strict and rigid. Capricorn is a strength for me — and an Achilles Heel.

In contrast, the North Node symbolizes the path of greatest soul growth — should we choose to accept it. ☺ In other words, it's the energy that your soul most wants you to learn, or your greatest potential in this life.

In my example, opposite to Capricorn is Cancer, so instead of being controlling and rigid, I'm here to learn how to be nurturing and emotional, while retaining the best part of Capricorn. In other words, integrating the best of both Cancer and Capricorn.

The rest of the chart symbolizes our personality, with some past life information as well. Taken together, our charts can give us clues on how we can consciously get on our soul's path — and manifest an astrological soulmate!

If you have your exact time of birth, you can get even more information. Like all of the planets, our north and south nodes reside in a particular house (or area of life), which gives you even more information. For example, my North Node in Cancer is expressed in the 12th house. So I'm here to explore emotion and karma... and being in solitude sometimes (to write!) fits well with this energy. So does writing about soulmates!

Your astrological soulmate relationship

Astrological soulmate synastry looks at relationship compatibility. It's a detailed process, which compares two people's charts: quite an art. The thing is... while this is interesting information for sure, I believe that synastry alone doesn't predict your astrological soulmate.

I may be going out on a limb here, but I believe that two people can come together with fantastic synastry on paper — and totally screw things up. Perhaps one person's ready and the other isn't. Or any number of scenarios.

On the other hand, if you and your sweetie are a challenging love match... but you're both committed to your own growth and to each other, there's no reason why he won't end up as each other's astrological soulmate. There is no fate, magic or pre-destiny. Asrology is a valuable tool. It provides helpful information. In the end, it's always up to us.

Learn about your soul path... for free

Here's some free spiritual astrology which will give you some clues to your love match. In other areas of this site, I share how soulmates aren't our missing halves, but that we meet them on our soul paths and that they give us the impetus to become whole ourselves.

So when asking about your astrological soulmate... the question isn't just: Is he my soulmate? It's also: Who do I need to be to attract him?

1. Gather your date, place - and time of birth

Don't have the time? If you can, ask your folks. Or look on your birth certificate. Some hospitals will also have the time on record, and look it up for a fee.

Today, it's not critical that you have the time. However, to know where in life your soul purpose is to be focused (e.g. career or home? Locally, or internationally? Externally, or internally? Individually or in groups?) you need the time — as exact as you can get.

2. Go to www.astro.com

Sign up, and enter your personal data in to get your chart.

Europe-based Astrodienst has some fantastic free information, so have fun exploring. Psychologist Ph.D. Liz Greene and others featured on this site are world reknowned astrologers. Note that Astrodienst covers psychological astrology rather than ‘soul-based’ astrology. Not that the information isn't interesting... it just won't explain your soul's purpose, or your astrological soulmate in the same way.

3. Identify your North Node ☊

Okay! Once you have your chart from Astrodienst, look for a symbol that looks like ☊ or an upside down ‘U’ with ‘True Node’ beside it (this is another name for North Node). It's like an upside down bucket that's empty, waiting to be full. In contrast, the south node ☋ is the bucket that's already full. At least that's how I remember it. Write down the sign of your True Node, and read the description below!
