Soulmate Dry Your Eyes

Filed in Inspiration

Two Of Cups Surreal ArtKathleen Lolley

“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.”

Edgar Cayce

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?

Hmm, curious. I have Pluto square Venus in my natal chart, meaning a lot of men my age have their Pluto squaring my Venus. Curious what your take on that might be, clearly I can’t be soul mates with THAT many men…

I have experienced the total shift to awakening of meeting a soulmate. Soulmates are not the romantic notion of some of the replies here, they are just as Cayce said… people we have shared past life experiences with. I did not believe in past lives until about 6 months ago, when after meeting a particular person (who I will not be able to share this lifetime with) I suddenly had like an intrinsic knowledge that past lives are real and I had known him before and suddenly had questions about “soulmates.” The idea of a soul tribe is also something… Read more »

What if you have natal SN conjunct Venus? You are your own soulmate, lol? My husband and I both have that natal conjunction (with his sun thrown into his 0_O), not sure what to make of that.

I do know that an old healer I used to work had this to say on the subject: she cackled, “You can’t MARRY your soul mate! Ha!”

I definitely believe in soul mates in that we connect with people from our soul group at certain times of life. I think a number of soul mates are in place from the time you are born but that you can reach out to others when your life goes off track- you know through astral travel and the like. I was served by someone at a hotel several times last year but the first time I saw them I couldn’t believe how I recognised this person. Thankfully I stopped myself from saying ‘you look so familiar’- the words nearly fell… Read more »

How many degrees apart can something be to be in aspect? If I have Chiron 21 Aries and he has Venus 10 Aries does that count as a conjunction?
Also does anyone know any good intermediate astro courses that run in Sydney??

ten degrees is the widest for a conjunction and some say five so you don’t have one but do you have anything in libra opposing his venus? Clairvision do astro courses in sydney, not sure what they’re like but I’ve had some crazy consults from clairvision astrologers – altho if it’s to learn about the past they don’t do past life stuff. They are future oriented. I think Robert Wilkinson – the aquarius papers link on the left hand side of this page is going to do astro courses and he’d be amazing to learn from if you’re open to… Read more »

I believe that our entire life is made up of and created upon what we believe to be but when we talk beliefs we typically talk more about our conscious being not our subconsious being (or soul). So from a soul level I believe in reincarnation and connections with other souls (mates/tribes/both/something else) and to me it makes perfect sense, come from same source, return to same source, have been on earth at different points together and shared experiences and/or love.. whatevs. I am aware of a number of souls that I’ve had previous experiences with and with a couple… Read more »

Totally believe in soulmates. They just HAVE to be a real thing. But I agree with others in this thread that it doesn’t have to be romantic/sexual and that there may be more than one. I had a best friend for 12 years: Sun in 9th House Sun conjunct Moon Moon in 9th House Venus in 9th House Pluto conjunct Ascend. Venus Opposing Neptune That last one I should have been aware of before. Because, as of now, the illusion is broken and there are great disappointments. Sad to say but we no longer talk. But sheesh, all that 9th… Read more »

I think some of it has to do with when they come along too. As you say they don’t have to be a constant in your life and to some extent I think people’s souls change and evolve over time, so that they can grow apart. You and your friend sound like me and my Pisces best friend from high school. We were inseparable when we were younger…two angsty and sensitive watery souls that found understanding in each other. But over the past 10 years we’ve drifted apart. We live close though we rarely talk and when we get together… Read more »

Every soul mate experience I’ve had is a negative one so i don’t believe in “good” soul mate experiences. They are probably there to teach you humility and to not ask the universe for too much.

I was lucky to have ONE good one. Ended badly though – as they usually do. It’s hard to sustain that intensity. Took me years to get over him and haven’t had anything long-term since (that was 13 years ago). Not that I want that kind of experience again… a life companion would be nice though. My venus in Libra will always yearn for that but with my Saturn conjunct venus, I feel like i will be single forever and ever. Hopefully Neptune in Pisces will take the edge off my cynicism. Have had enough of Neptune in Aqua ugh!

Sat conj Venus is a hard one. I had synastry with someone where my Sat was exactly conj his Venus and it was not fun. Even though he was older than me, I had to be the “grown-up” all of the time. sucked. We are still friends even through all of that but I would def. think twice before getting involved again.

🙁 I have Sat in the 7th which is another squelcher.

Ugh…I want to comment here and then again I don’t. I have to go back and cite the recent Venus in Scorpio post. My rational mind is nodding along with the above comments that say there is no ONE soul-mate, that it just doesn’t make sense when you may meet many people in your life that could have a deep and meaningful impact. But I think if your “soul” has anything to do with it then it’s not something that your rational mind can explain or even define. I only know what I feel and that there is a deep,… Read more »

Well, personally I don’t think that soul mates have to be a bad thing, or a naive thing, or something to fear/reject. Although I’m fully aware of how emotionally exhausting AND traumatizing a soul-mating experience can be, I’d still rather have it like that than not at all. I genuinely love the intensity of it, however dangerous, and I am a Leo sun in the house of Saggo (9th) so ultimately I am an optimist. I’m realistic and know that it can be unpredictable, but I look on the bright side regardless. Once in love always in love, and life… Read more »

Love what Mr. Cayce says there, a Soul Mate often being a person who helps you find your true Self, not complement you. So they can be your scourge or your angel. My multi gem partner is all over my gemini asc and south node. We have come together in this life and others to support each other, I have seen this in hypnotic states. I have seen other friends too, my husband has had this intimate role successfully with me before though. The idea there is only one twin flame or true soul mate sounds a bit limiting, but… Read more »

Yes to soulmates. One was a Pisces-Aqua Rising-Cancer moon who just pinged all over my chart the first day we met. Definitely love at first sight. Have never felt like I have with him.

I had instant soul recognition with my new man….met him and it was electric. He touched me and I got goosebumps. We were talking about eloping and having babies after 1 week, but we’re being sane.
I don’t see any major indications in our composite chart, but I don’t know how to check NN or SN either. Can anyone help with this?

Charley

NN is also called the Lunar Node or True Node, they should be easy to find if you know how to use an ephemeris? Or input your details into astro.com and check it there. The SN is the opposite sign, eg I have NN in Leo so my SN is Aqua!

Make sure you do the synastry chart, too (compares both charts together), not just the composite chart (calculates the “average” and blends the charts into one, forming the signature of the relationship itself).

Time is a layer. We live in cycles, not linear timelines. Astrology helps describe the cycles. Now excuse me while I rant on soulmates…its challenging me now and sometimes it feels good to share.

I definately believe in soul mates, perhpas it has something to do with me being super plutonic and venus/pluto opposition. When i met my current boyfriend, we had an instant connection that felt really easy and comfortable. but hes so different than me, and challenges me every day to be a whole person. i think everybody has a soul mate.

If we indeed come and go from the Void, why does the Void exist? Could it be one’s personal hell? If you don’t experience something, then just shut up. If you don’t experience death and return to tell the tale, please go through life like the rest and make up stories that will or won’t scare you – but don’t send these tall tales out as gospel, okay? As for soul mates, everything you do, everyone you meet, every being you harm, every load you lighten impacts your soul, mate! Remember, mercy is in short supply on this hellplanet.

I believe in reincarnation so I believe people who knew each other in past life times can find each other. Not sure about soul mates. But I’m pretty sure Plato was the one who “originally” came up with the idea, and that it’s “soul mate” because the two people are halves of a whole soul. In my mythology class my teacher talked about it, Plato/the Greeks idea was that you wanted to be as close to your soul mate as possible, so probably romantic relationship.

I believe in soulmate tribes.

not fan of Karma or past life as I don’t see any purpose of it..Astrology itself explains alot of what we feel to say about past life, which is not about past life.

It seems if Sun has aspect to Node, they tends to feel more destiny or fate. My pals has Sun -NN-Juno..etc. so, NN and Juno played alot part in the relationship.

Like Carl Jung said, “I don’t need belief. I have experience.” I am incapable of “believing” a lot of what I’ve experienced. But experience wins. I prefer the term “soul connection” to soulmates because “mate” implies you’re meant to be in a relationship with that person and a romantic relationship is just NEVER the point in a connection that deep, which is why the connection turns you inside out and makes you sort out old crap/ideas. I have a soul connection and its a total pain-in-the-ass, like a chronic condition I have to Saturn the hell out of. Its magical… Read more »

“chronic condition” seems funny but true. It will not go away and learning to live with this type of “experience” pulls a more intense intuitiveness out of you, like cutting it off means denying parts of yourself exist.

12th house Virgo
12th house Virgo

Absolutely! I’ve tried everything I can think of to cut it off and it just isn’t possible (without being low Qi). So, I have to accept its there and realize that even if it exists, it isn’t in control of me. It doesn’t MEAN anything. It isn’t predictive (as in we are so connected we must invest in real estate together). All the romantic ideas about soulmates make me frustrated because its not the reality. Its never just about getting what (it is you think) you want from someone else. Its about being healed and whole independent of anyone else.

Soul mates suck the marrow from your bones until your eyes bleed – for god sakes don’t wish for one … they come along and harass you anyways.

Focus on mutual interests, loyalty and kindness. Foster good communication. Recognise that you need others and others need you. Cast a broad net … there are plenty of people out there travelling in a similar direction and would love a travelling companion. It doesn’t need to be romantic or sexual, although it can be.

prowlncrab
prowlncrab

I should possibly qualify that statement ….

after years of investigation I’ve come to the conclusion that all is a void. We are born from one and we return to it. Meaning, soul mates, spirituality, god etc etc are a human construct … the ego’s attempt at creating importance (especially self importance), when none actually exists. I used to find that idea noxious and uncomfortable, now I find it comforting. Soz to those who might be offended by that.

“suck the marrow from your bones until your eyes bleed” !!!! funny–my thoughts exactly.

Although that might be one category of “soulmate” Another is that tribe of people that feel just right or the friend who feels just right.

Those people who are like overpowered magnets are fascinating but scary and usually difficult to evade and leave a permanent chain from my solar plexus to theirs (actually I don’t know what they feel, but certain people move through my life and I “can’t get rid of them”)

I believe in soul-mating for sure.

And I even feel like applying this term to my best friend, whom I wouldn’t mate with on a sexual level but I have mated with on a purely spiritual/mental plane.

Haha, as an experienced practitioner of the phenomenon! It’s like you’re soul-mating with a few people at once, but there is that one whom you’d really like to mate with for a lifetime. It’s more in the sense that you want to be with them, feel them (beyond even physical touch), experience them, are happy to wake up with them, whereas the others are more like, you’re beautiful and intriguing and I’d like to be awesome with you, sharing experiences and ideas, etc. They sound the same and in a way are the same, yet that one is just… The… Read more »

Exactly Sweets. I think that its even more random than that. Its like we carry stuff and put it on other people. They help us play out our own drama. It could be anyone, but ‘someone’ is going to help you get that particular message. Embuing them with special powers of exclusivity is just unnecessary ?

Even putting it on someone “you are my one and only soul mate” thats a heavy burden to start with. I can’t see it being a very effective belief in real life ? That one person can contain it ?

My ex had Venus in Pisces & was all about the ‘soul mate’ thing, but in retrospect a lot of it was about finding someone to fix the parts of him that were broken. Yes, it’s a burden, because there’s such a LONG way to fall once you’re ‘the soulmate’. By the end, every bad choice he’s ever made was my fault. Sigh.

Exacto Sweetpea, I don’t believe that ‘soulmate’ equals love to be honest, I think it’s a term that’s massively over used.

apparently that ‘i’ve known them before’ feeling is often south node and in the long run its not future focused but past focused – that is why people are sometime attracted to someone with whom they felt ‘past lives’ and old connections, but in the long run it doesn’t help them grow (the way a north node relationship will)

Yes! I have a Sun/SN conjunction with my sister and her SN is conjunct my Sun. I knew her the minute I saw her, we’ve always been close, easy and meant to be sisters despite a large age gap. I have NN in Leo and often end up with Leo men who do just that, make me go forward in some way, whatever it might be. This new guy has the nodal axis in signs I don’t have anywhere, only intercepted houses. I’m not sure what the astro connection is with him at all, that’s why I’m going for pheremones… Read more »

Ahhh. Not my thing. Too intense for my Gem Venus lol Interesting though that my Gem Venus conjunct North Node is opposite the Cap’s Sagg Venus. Makes her Venus conjunct my South Node. And my Neptune. Dillusional belief that we’re meant to be? lol

I’m afraid I don’t believe in ‘a’ soul mate. I know women crave them, search for them, pray for them but in the end I believe it’s a romantic notion that blinds people to their true life partners. If soul is a part of spirit then there can be no exclusivity, we are all soul mates. A life partner is a different concept, 2 people who find each other in the madness, and help each other overcome. I found my life partner 15 years ago and it just gets stronger, but she is not my soul mate, she’s my best… Read more »

I agree Davey. A ultimate soul mate, no. But several that you learn with/thru from, yes. I mean there has to be some glue there with certain particular people from the get go.

My relationship with the Pisces spanned 11 yrs. It was hell but it transformed me in deep energetic ways I could never even attempt on a forum except just superfically.

His Venus/SN on my Moon/Psyche 8th. He was definitely a soul mate.

It you are talking to me, you do if there is a purpose and the purpose has not been fulfilled. It’s not over till it’s over..That’s karma for you.

Bluesky, if that is you as you seemed to have indicated below, I hadn’t known if it was some smart arse or what so my rather “dry” response.

snap!

I don’t believe in them cos they don’t fir with my idea of reality but I know some men and women crave them. It’s apparently a human condition. Searching for the lost other.

I agree. Why the world hangs everything on them is why people live in so much angst! These Pluto Venus contacts push us for growth, but the happily ever after story does not exist at this level of reality! The ultimate relationship is the one you have with God or however you want to call it that. If we dropped the fairy tale myth, we’d take the pressure offa our partners and actually be happier.

aye – in my experience, the spiritual reset button is most apt description.
am not good at reading charts together.
His north node is @ 12 aries. My venus is @ 20 aries.
His venus is @ 10 leo. My pluto is 17 libra.
His pluto is 5 degrees off my north node.
Am i completely off track lol??!

hey firey how are you? If you click on the synastry chart in astro.com and then click on the link that lets you download the additional charts it gives you a table in pdf format which might be easier for you to read than the round chart. Seems like you have a loose venus to his north node conjunction and his pluto is conjunct your north node.

thanking you whatevs … and how are you??

ironically enough, i think healthier if i now avoid checking this synastry stuff; it has all gone very strange with whom i compare charts!! saturn opposite venus at present. it’s been very tough. but all in the name of clarity and finding the true path so i walk with a relatively straight spine. bless yoga 🙂

ha ha, I was just thinking of soulmating yesterday or the day before that. Yes I believe in soulmating, yes I have had/currently have soulmates, and yes it’s complicated and have had a building impact that’s altered things/ME for the better.

soulmates can make you or break you, if they break you, you rebuild yourself stronger than you were before. a real soulamate knows your weaknesses thats why they can break you and they also know how to make u smile like no other….
