Karmic Snap – How To Find Your Soul Pod


Karmic Snap? There are more instructional and erudite posts on the Moon’s  Nodes on here – this one is simply about how to find 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.

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 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.

So first go to Astrotheme.  I know people bitch about the accuracy of their birth times for the charts of known figures but that does not matter in this case.

Then scroll down the left hand bar until you get to Astro Search Tools and “By Astrological Positions.”

Then input the North Node – because there is no option for South Node – and the degree you want – i have input an “orb” or as Astrotheme are calling it, “precision”, of four degrees in the example here and i am looking for South Node at 8 Taurus.  That means that we will get four degrees either side – this is quite wide and  you can narrow it down to one degree if you prefer.

Then you just 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.

In this example, we have the following people 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 Keyne, 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.

        Yes, it was on Astrotheme – just came up along with the others (incl Katy Perry, Hilary Clinton, Mike Tyson :), Jacques Cousteau and Romulus). They used the 1947 date for independence from the U.K. If you’re interested in a particular country, they have a search function for the ‘celebrity’ – in this case the country – so you could have a look at that and they may have a chart for it – could check out your synastry. Have you done your South Node yet?

      I always loved Nicole Kidman, especially her character in Practical Magic. Similar feelings for Grace Kelly and Mae West. Shakti Gawain and I both have SN Scorpio conjunct in the 5th house! Her book is on my bedside table right now.

    My Soul Pod is located in Athens, Greece.

    The residents of one neighborhood are Uranians, deeply committed to liberation: Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Peter Singer, Miep Gies.

    In another neighborhood– forested, fielded, canyoned, and water-girt, live the imagineers: Van Gogh, Emily Carr, H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen Crane.

    These lovely women with their sensitive, graceful air live together in a beautiful mansion: Diane Lane, Julia Ormond, Maura Tierney, Golshifteh Farahani.

    In a dark and seedy part of town, these sharks lurk: Donald Trump, George W. Bush, Joseph McCarthy, and Barry Goldwater.

    • Reply Sagitta May 16, 2017 at 3:44 am

      I replied to the wrong post– wanted to reply to mine. So this soul pod is for South node in 23 Saggo. Does anyone have a similar placement? South node in 20ish Saggo?

  • Reply Moved On May 15, 2017 at 1:15 am

    Hmm. Well I can’t see where my soul pod is located but I was astounded to see the list according to mine and my partner’s nodes! My south node is Sagittarius and the list of people that come up are all rebellious as heck. I’ve got myself into all sorts of pickles just being myself and challenging the norm. My partners south node is Capricorn and all the list that come up for his are/were sex symbols. Hmm. So it’s like an indication on how we run out lives using the tools of the personality planets given to us. I find this really interesting

    • Reply Sagitta May 16, 2017 at 3:42 am

      That was for South node at 23 Sagittarius, by the way. Does anyone else have their south node in the 20ish Saggo?

      And, as you noted above, me! Hello pod partner – we got quite the fellow travellers! Mine is actually at Tau 25 (in 12 th house). Sometimes I have a feeling I may have had quite a full on previous life that I volunteered to work thru this time – seems like the simplest explanation some days. And you?

      • Reply jacqui May 16, 2017 at 12:07 am

        My NN is 25 Taurus 4th house so SN is 10th house. What was in my past careers that I am carrying forward? Teaching full time art and being a mum of 3. I want to investigate this further. Yes our pod list has some “huge” icons!

        • Reply waterfey May 16, 2017 at 12:52 am

          Yes – our pod seems Very Scorpy to me. BTW w are having Sun conj NN today!

          Carrying forward a 10th House SN? I get a Power behind the Throne/Clan vibe, also Saint-Sinner, Diplomat, Spy Master, Witch-Oracular Advisor, Teacher-Guardian-Regent, Power Courtesan, Discoverer & Keeper of Secrets & Keys, Dispenser of Poisons & Remedies. Someone who could viably be in GOT – lol .. imagine this would come in handy for art, teaching and being a mum. My SN in 6th and now I’m a psychologist and also dance and teach .. I think I can see the SN there.

  • Reply Caritas May 15, 2017 at 9:50 am

    This is also interesting as an exercise to see what other people with the same nodes “do with them”. I’m getting a lot of politicians – NN in Cancer, SN in Capricorn. The vibe is to do with responsibility, community, family. I’m slowly seeing this about myself.
    On a more immediate level, I see Peter Weir! Directer of dreamy, allegorical, teenage-dream “Picnic at Hanging Rock”. One of my favourite films when I was myself a young virgin type. SOMETHING about that film certainly resonated deeply. I think it has a Cancerian intuition about women – women in sync with the womb of nature – something like that. 😉

    I chucked in a Sagg north node and an Aqua sun too and I get:
    Miranda July (one of my fave artists)
    The 1974 Brisbane Flood – natch
    Robbie Williams??

    Panning out (ditching the Aqua sun) I get:
    Alfred Hitchcock. I had an obsession with him in artschool.
    Donatella Versace. Wow she is really extreme these days.
    Chidvilasananda, who has the cutest dimples and collection of hats, and
    Monty Don! I loved loved loved his show Around the World in 80 Gardens. I’m sorry, but I did.

    What fun!

      oh snap, i put in the wrong degree by four! so these ones all fit if i increase the orb but i was looking with 2 degree precision. i am a 6 leo south node and the aforementioned peeps are 2! who has a 2 degree aqua NN? i know it rang a bell for some reason…

      anyway my tight pod peeps still make me tingle. j m barrie, charles manson, and stalin. elizabeth arden and the UAE. margot robbie, j-law, and christina applegate. prime minister justin trudeau, and the grand duchess nikolaevna who shares my first name!

    this is uncanny I did it the other way round to what you’re suggesting i think and i wanted to see the ones whose north node my south node was on – I figured they would be the ones whose stuff/groove I have on board innately – what they were engaging with I have already assimilated? One of their names I use as a password, one is a writer whose work I loathe but people say I have a similar tempo and style, two are people I’m currently researching and there’s another writer whose work relates to things I’ve researched in the past. Fun!
