“A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not just because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves.”
So who believes in soulmating?
And in the Cayce version specifically, that you’re sort of destined to meet some people and it’s like they hit your spiritual reset button, you become more YOU by dint of meeting them.
I’m not so sure we necessarily end up with these people though. Some say this kind of connection is too high-vibed to survive the business end of relationships, the dealing with in-laws, joint finances, imperfection of everyday life et al.
Astrologically, if there is such a thing as a soulmate pointer, you’re looking at strong Venus-Pluto synastry, aspects to one another’s Nodes and Eros-Psyche links. But i think you also check out the time you meet people. Pluto over South Node (past) is massive, that’s like the people walking into the room altering your life forever big deal kind of spiritual encounter whammy.
There is also a theory that you have your soul tribe, so you meet some people and feel a sense of instant recognition or kinship. Others evoke instant enmity or a desire to be as far away from them as possible.
Past life baggage? Qi conflict? Something to do with pheromones? Neural pathways of the brain? Thoughts?
