When you first think of Karmic Astrology, you think soul-mate and time-crossed relationships. But what about your Soul Pod? What do I mean by that? Quite simply, people with whom you share a South Node placement. These are the folk you share a karmic affinity with – regardless of their era or the timbre of the times they lived through. You could have known them in another lifetime or more weirdly, been them.
I found it bizarrely resonant – authors from hundreds of years ago whose work I have always related to and voila, the same South Node. It’s obviously easy to figure out that anyone born within a week either side of you would have the same South Node. You can find your North Node in Astral DNA and though it does not cite the opposing South Node, it takes it into account. But how to get a handy list of every “public figure” with the same South Node as you?
Well, Astrotheme to the rescue! So first of all, recall that the South Node is always directly opposite the North Node. If your North Node is 8 Scorpio, your South Node is 8 Taurus. And that the South Node represents your deep past, the door via which you enter “this life.”
Those people with the same South Node are from the same “soul pod.” It can also be fun to see the similarities between – say – Hip Hop Moguls of the 21st Century and Gothic Era novelists.
Ellen De Generes and Timothy Leary Are In The Same Soul Pod – Who Is In Your Soul Pod?
So first go to Astrotheme. Then scroll down the left-hand bar until you get to Astro Search Tools and “By Astrological Positions.”
Input the North Node – because there is no option for South Node – and the degree you want – I input an “orb” or as Astrotheme is calling it, “precision”, of four degrees/
Then hit “run the request” and voila – a list of people of interest who have that same South Node. If you input your North Node details, you get your own Soul Pod.
For example, these people are all in the same Soul Pod: Coco Chanel, Abraham Lincoln, Ellen DeGeneres, Amanda Lear, Charles Bukowski, Nick Cave, Frances Ford Coppola, Timothy Leary, John Steinbeck, Ray Bradbury, John Maynard Keynes, Tallulah Bankhead, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
So this is not going to be one of those “holy-fuq OMG” moments in your astrological studies but it can definitely be of interest. I was thrilled to find I have Charlotte Bronte and Freddie Mercury in my Soul Pod. It’s not so much Karmic Astrology as kindred souls.
