The North Node in Synastry

The North Node is a good indication of a soul mate connection, but other specific aspects are needed to fully determine a soul mate relationship.

When your Sun is conjunct your partner’s North Node, a strong bond exists between the two of you. This aspect indicates a relationship that is constantly moving forward. This aspect indicates the two of you are “new” to each other in this lifetime. If there are no South Node Aspects between the two of you and only North Node connection, it implies that the two of you have no past karma to work out. Indeed, the two of you have a “clean slate” upon which to build your relationship.

The Sun person encapsulates the qualities the North Node person requires in order to fulfill their life’s purpose. Thus, developing each other’s strengths and talents is the hallmark of this relationship. The couple can help one another in furthering their career and social ambitions. The willingness to invest in the relationship is present, due to the fact that they feel they are “going somewhere” with each other.

Depending on where the North Node person “is” in his or her life will dictate how this relationship will unfold. The relationship also strongly depends on whether the Nodal person relates well to their North Node. Regardless, the Nodal person is likely to feel somewhat uneasy in the presence of the Sun person, mostly because the Sun person brings the Node person out of their comfort zone. Is the Nodal person ready to grow, or is he not?

Nevertheless, the North Node is undoubtedly strongly drawn towards the Sun person, and vice-versa. Indeed, the North Node person feels a fated “pull” towards the Sun person. The North Node certainly feels there is a future with the Sun person and is attracted to the growth the relationship represents.

When your Moon is conjunct your partner’s North Node, or vice-versa, an intense emotional attraction is indicated. This connection is distinctly emotional and penetrating. It creates a strong emotional attachment which makes it possible to overcome the things that ruin other relationships.

The two of you may feel as though the relationship was “meant to be.” The Moon person offers support, care, and nurturing to the North Node person. The Moon person strives to provide safety and security to the North Node person, as well. The North Node person is glad to receive the Moon person’s support and love.

The cycle of giving and receiving support and love will be a main theme in your relationship. However, the Moon person is likely to give a disproportionate amount of support to the North Node person, in comparison to how much the Moon person receives in return. This is because the North Node person is learning how to express these qualities, and may feel they are exploring new ground in doing so.

When your Mercury conjuncts your partner’s North Node, or vice-versa, a strong intellectual connection is indicated. Communication between the two of you is likely to be excellent (notwithstanding hard aspects to either person’s Mercury). The two of you enjoy communicating and exchanging ideas. The North Node person is highly receptive to the Mercury person’s ideas, and admires their intellect. The Mercury person opens up the North Node person’s mind to different ways of thinking. Indeed, it is the Mercury person’s role in this relationship to guide the Node person to their future, in regards to ideas and communication.

On the downside, the Mercury person communicates in a way that may make the North Node person feel slightly uneasy or uncomfortable. As such, the North Node person may feel exhausted at the amount of mental activity that goes on between the couple, as the North Node person has to put in a considerable amount of effort in order to keep up with the Mercury person.

When your Venus is conjunct your partner’s North Node, or vice-versa, an instant attraction is indicated. The desire to impress or inspire one another is strong, due to the fact that the couple feels they are “going somewhere” together.

Many astrologers, like Celeste Teal, insist that when this aspect is present in synastry, the individuals are setting the stage for a future meeting, and that the likelihood of a real relationship forming in this lifetime is unlikely. In my personal experience, I’ve found this to be true. Perhaps barriers to love exist between the two of them, which deny the formation of a love relationship. Perhaps the Node person doesn’t feel “ready” to embrace the qualities the Venus person represents because it makes them feel out of their comfort zone. However, if there are other strong aspects (especially to either person’s Nodes), the likelihood of forming a lasting relationship in this lifetime is increased.

Regardless, the couple enjoys spending time with one another. The North Node person is strongly attracted to the Venus person’s beauty, grace, and charm. The two of you easily cooperate with one another, and a feeling of comfort and ease was probably instant.

I have had this connection in Synastry, wherein my North Node was conjunct his Venus. The attraction certainly was immediate, but very short-lived, at least on my part! We had a 2-month fling, which ended with me cutting him out of my life very abruptly. I suddenly lost all attraction to him, which was followed by a prompt good-bye. He e-mailed me for about 2 months after the sudden separation, expressing his disappointment and sorrow. At the time, I was still in love with a man with whom I had a Venus-South Node connection, so perhaps I was too comfortable with my South Node guy to even consider jumping out of my comfort zone.

When your Mars is conjunct your partner’s North Node, or vice-versa, a stimulating, action-oriented connection is indicated. The Mars person motivates the North Node person and encourages the North Node person to take action. The North Node person may become frustrated with the Mars person, especially if the North Node person is not ready to follow Mars’ direction. In addition, the Node person may find the Mars person overly pushy or aggressive, which may turn the Node person off. Regardless, this connection promises a dramatic and fiery union. The Node person is strongly attracted to the Node person’s drive and ambition. If other synastry aspects agree, this aspect also indicates a strong amount of physical desire and passion.

On the downside, conflict, and even violent situations, may plague your relationship due to the combative and aggressive nature of Mars. Though a physical attraction is indicated by this aspect, the sexual style of the Mars person may make the Node person feel uncomfortable. Indeed, since North Node aspects represent the “future,” perhaps the sexual exchange between the couple is too “new,” and will thus require a lot of work to ensure mutual satisfaction.

When your Jupiter is conjunct your partners’ North Node, or vice-versa, an relationship based on mutual generosity and good-will is indicated. The couple is likely to share common philosophical and religious beliefs, which can go a long way in maintaining a long-term relationship. Jupiter may provide the Node person with material wealth, good luck, support, and spiritual guidance. Indeed, this is an ideal aspect in the charts of guru-discliple or teacher-student relationships.

When your Saturn is conjunct your partner’s North Node, you bring restriction, discipline, and structure into your partner’s life. Indeed, this is a very serious union! On the good side, the Saturn person can help the North Node person achieve success and teach them how to be responsible. Indeed, Saturn brings out North Node’s mature side.

On the downside, maintaining this relationship can be difficult, due to its heavy and serious nature. The Node person may feel the relationship is burdensome, while the Saturn person may feel the Node person is irresponsible and childish. In addition, external forces may prevent the two of you from fully forming a romantic bond in this lifetime.

At the same time, if other synastry aspects support the formation of a romantic relationship, the depth of responsibility and commitment to one another can bind you together for a long time. The likelihood of the two of you staying together also depends on how the North Node person responds to Saturnian energy. If the North Node person’s chart is “Saturn-friendly” (i.e. if there are several aspects to Saturn, or if there are planets in Capricorn), the Node person may find it easier to go the distance with the Saturn person.
