What are the Soulmate Links? They’re the strange synastry and weird alignments between the birth charts of two people that reflect soul affinity. Some are the sort of thing you find in classic compatibility reports (Person A has their Sun conjunct the Moon of Person B) while others are weirder; Asteroid Isis in conjunction to Osiris, for example. The entire list of 88 Soulmate Links is here.
Most couples or would-be duos only have three to five between them. Anything over five is rare and epic. I ran the Soulmating report for Golden Era Hollywood couple Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman and they had 11! They’re delineated below as an FYI. Soulmate links are not just romantic. I did the report for myself with children and close friends, simply skimming anything not apt for that relationship, and got some spooky results.
But the standard karma drama caution: soul links do not necessarily translate to a brilliant relationship. They mean you and the other person connected between lives, have met before and will doubtless meet again in another time. The bond between you is not just familial, pheromonal or based on the society’s current concept of ideal couple-hood. It’s deeper and wired up into a fate matrix far too complex for us to understand.
The Bond is Wired Up Into A Fate Matrix Far Too Complex For Us To Understand
But having said all that, the 11 Soul Links of Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman are pretty damn impressive. They remained apparently blissfully married for decades and people who met them attested to their tangible high-vibe chemistry and connection.

Joanne Woodward’s Mercury Opposite Paul Newman’s North Node
Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman are immediately in cahoots, feeling like their attraction or romance is more conspiracy theory than anything ‘normal’. They’re the kind of pair who go from “just met” to “in-jokes” and “own language” at Warp Speed. Their instinctive understanding of one another feels uncanny. But, as with any South Node scenario, Paul Newman needs to beware that the fabulous familiarity and high-vibe connection does not anchor them in the life-journey equivalent of a way station, a scenic detour. And whether Joanne Woodward lets on or not, Paul Newman influences their thought style like mad.
The Venus Trine Saturn Link Is Formidable At First Sight
Joanne Woodward’s Venus Trine Paul Newman’s Saturn
It’s an attraction or affinity that is formidable at first sight. Each person senses the other’s essence and that this could be a substantial alignment. If they pick up on the past-life frequency, it feels like they ran the whole show together. Their first conversations are probably themed around loyalty, betrayals and boundaries that shall never again be breached.
Joanne Woodward’s Venus Trine Paul Newman’s Pluto
The first meeting is usually one for the ages: Joanne Woodward meets Paul Newman and parts of their soul that had been slumbering wake the hell up. These two pay attention to one another with every fiber of their being. They’re not even going to bother faking nonchalance. It’s super-strength spiritual-emotional-sensual chemistry and they often share strange, niche experiences or factors in common. Core Competency: Ignoring everyone else present without meaning to. Lucid dreaming of past lives if they sleep together. Over the top reactions to one another’s body scents.
Mars Opposite North Node Is A Super-Intense Karmic Connection That Can Be Uncomfortable
Joanne Woodward’s Mars Opposite Paul Newman’s North Node
This is a super-intense karmic connection that can be uncomfortable, especially if Joanne Woodward subconsciously feels that Paul Newman has it in for them and moves to the absurdity of pre-emptive retaliation. They’re often brought together to rouse Paul Newman’s drive and anti-fragility, while Joanne Woodward scores some kind of redemption from Paul Newman. It can be one of those dynamics: high-sex-vibe, tense energy, can’t live with or without one another and everyone in orb gets sick of the drama. The chemistry between these two is so strong, it’s palpable like a Poltergeist, things falling off shelves and glass shattering. Take care that this does not devolve into dysfunction. If both people are able to functionally deploy their Mars energy, it can be an alliance of psychically battle-seasoned veterans, tranquil and happy at last.
Joanne Woodward’s Jupiter Opposite Paul Newman’s Asteroid Juno
The King and Queen of Heaven in opposition; Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman are hugely aware of one another as similarly powerful souls from the moment they meet. But, this sort of chemistry works in a structured, goal-centric set-up or not at all. And if Paul Newman is compelled to seek sensual gratification or ego validation with Joanne Woodward’s inferiors, the potential power and riches from this union won’t be enough to offset the sting. It can be the sort of dynamic where Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman know each other or of one another for decades, forming a proper bond only when both are mature and able to be more measured with their attention or affections.
It Has The Feel Of Previous Lives Lived Out In The Public Eye
Joanne Woodward’s North Node Opposite Paul Newman’s Midheaven
All other things being equal, these two people are destined to form an amazing sanctuary together. It has the feel of previous lives lived out in the public eye or with limiting protocol but this time around, Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman can secure a peaceful and supportive base. Privacy is paramount, especially for Paul Newman. On a really basic level, their home and location ideals are likely to harmonize, perhaps eerily well.
Paul Newman’s Sun Square Joanne Woodward’s North Node
This synergy has the karmic zing of any Sun-Node chemistry but Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward puzzle over the meaning or intent of the connection. Paul Newman is the most likely to have a belated epiphany; the relationship or attraction was worth honoring or exploring more. It can also be the sort of scenario where Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward are thrown together in circumstances that make it difficult to further their rapport. They could be cast in vaguely adversarial roles to one another; they’re connected because one is the ex-lover of the other’s friend, repping opposing political parties, or commercial rivals. Without even realizing it, Paul Newman inspires Joanne Woodward toward higher-level goal stalking. And it’s the romance or attraction most likely to have Paul Newman obsessively ‘researching’ Joanne Woodward years later, wondering if it was just that the timing was wrong.
Venus-Saturn Chemistry Is Iron-Forged, Ancient And Immutable
Paul Newman’s Venus Conjunct Joanne Woodward’s Saturn
Venus and Saturn connections don’t always generate raw erotic oomph or the cognitive “da-zing!” of some alignments but they indicate a solid and enduring bond. Venus-Saturn chemistry feels iron-forged, ancient and immutable. An actual romance could take forever to establish but once founded, it stays. Paul Newman feels as if Joanne Woodward loves or – at least – understands aspects of themselves that they’re super-vulnerable about. Or areas where they’ve prevailed over severe challenges. Joanne Woodward is drawn to Paul Newman’s integrity and worldliness. Paul Newman is more likely to show affection via saturnine means; by being helpful and respectful of boundaries. They often meet via work, for a specific purpose or when both are interested in restructuring their lives.
Paul Newman’s Venus Square Joanne Woodward’s Uranus
Their attraction frequency oscillates like mad and nobody knows what powers the relationship. Paul Newman feels like Joanne Woodward was plonked in their path for a reason but it’s more like a repetitive dream, compelling but nonsensical. Joanne Woodward sees Paul Newman as a walking flashpoint; stimulating and extremely attractive but thinks they should probably have hazard lights around them. It’s the sort of vibe that can run for eons as a clandestine arrangement that few know of. The purpose of the relationship? Liberation, particularly of Paul Newman.
Even The Most Short-Lived Versions Of Venus-Pluto Opposition Relationships Provoke Metamorphosis
Paul Newman’s Venus Opposite Joanne Woodward’s Pluto
Insane spiritual and sensual chemistry aside, this attraction or romance triggers Paul Newman’s ancestral and ancient memories, more than it does those of Joanne Woodward. It’s a Plutonic awakening for Paul Newman, with Joanne Woodward as the catalyst for an often quite dramatic recall or recognition of life purpose. It’s a classic Reset Romance, with even the most short-lived versions of it provoking metamorphosis. Joanne Woodward is more likely to be aware of the spiritual or broader dimensions of the connection than Joanne Woodward, who simply feels inexplicably enriched and empowered by Paul Newman. If they can’t be together or end up in hostilities, it’s painful and toxic. In worst case scenarios, Joanne Woodward could wind up trying to control or manipulate Paul Newman, setting up an unpleasant atmosphere redolent of their childhood or most persistent past life patterns.
Paul Newman’s Pluto Conjunct Joanne Woodward’s Asteroid Proserpina
Pluto-Proserpina dynamics can be weird, hot, karmic and under the radar. They’re like those scenes in art-house movies where other people only find out that the love even existed years after the event. It can grow and blossom without social sanctions, let alone “convenience.” Somehow, it often brings wealth – literally, spiritually or both – and more likely to Joanne Woodward.
