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.
