“I just finished Moondance and I felt I had to write to tell you how much I loved it. I haven't been able to put it down and felt it totally resonate for me...”– Lynne Franks
“Karen, it's Dee, I had to call and tell you that I've just read the first 119 pages of your book and oh my God it's absolutely incredible... I don't want to put it down, it's your fault. Congratulations, I can't wait for the next page.”– Dee Miller

Why? Because we meet our soulmates
Technically, the South and North Node in karmic astrology (also called esoteric or spiritual astrology) are points where the moon intercepts the earth's orbit around the sun. They're important because they're understood to have points of soul magnetism.
Your True Node also called North Node by sign and house, represents your soul mission, due north or soul's journey. It pulls you toward the future.
Your South Node represents your past. Your Achilles heel, and a colourful karmic bucket of people, habits, situations and experiences from current and past lifetimes that are yours to resolve. It also represents the talents you were born with.
You'll notice right away your North Node is (likely) different than your Sun sign, a.k.a. the general astrology you read about in Cosmo or the paper.
While your Sun represents how you achieve and radiate your energy, your North and South Nodes represent the path of your soul.
Clairvoyant Edgar Cayce said that the real value of astrology is understanding our cycles of soul growth: not prediction.
So when someone is seeking their soulmate, I always encourage them to learn about their North and South Nodes. Indeed, I learn more about mine all the time (mine is Cancer in the 12th in case you're curious).
By consciously aligning yourself with your soul mission you align your personality, with your soul. This will not only make your life more meaningful and enjoyable (who doesn't want THAT), but it'll work with what your soul wants for you, instead of working against it.
Consciously working with your North Node also supercharges the law of attraction around your intended relationship.
So the more you engage your North Node, the more likely it will be that you will attract people, events and situations into your life, aligned with your soul mission: like your intended soulmate. Yes — there's a method to my madness.
Your soul mission is expressed by sign and by house.
As you may know, there are twelve astrological signs. These symbolically represent different emotions and experiences of life.
There are also twelve astrological houses, representing areas of life or life issues.
Don't have your birth chart?
You must have your accurate time of birth to know the house your North Node is expressed. However, do not despair! Even without your full birth information, there's lots to explore. Start there.
Here's how you can calculate your own chart online and discover the sign and house of your North Node, for free.
Here, I'll call your North Node your soul mission, and your South Node your talents and karma.
Comfort zone warning!
Stepping into your soul mission may NOT be easy peasy, and that's okay. Know that it's your soul stretch for this lifetime.
For example, my soul mission is in emotionally vulnerable Cancer (and the heavily karmic, mystical, 12th house), which at first scared the heck out of me. But! Exploring this has been incredible for me as well.
