Sun conjunct South Node (North Node opposite Sun):
The relationship often starts off with magnetic attraction, distinct familiarities and a sense of ‘’meant to be’’. At least in the beginning, it invokes friendly feelings more so than romantic. It is as if when you two agree, you can finish off each other’s sentences. But when you don’t, drama never seems to stop.
The evolution of this karmic bond greatly depends on the level of maturity and self awareness of both partners. Even though they both feel the same love on a deeper level, their egoic responses, values or needs to it may be different.
There may also be significant external obstacles such as long distance, cultural and age differences, etc. Sun person may be hesitant to create a more intimate bond at first, whereas South Node person may feel unsatisfied in the relationship eventually.
Moon conjunct South Node (North Node opposite Moon):
The sense of familiarity and attraction is felt intuitively. Even in the early stages of the connection, there is a deep, unexplainable desire to be a safe emotional haven for each other. Moon person feels this very intensely, and as they bond deeper and deeper, South Node’s karmic patterns start to emerge into the present relationship.
After a period of time, Moon person may feel drained by South Node’s inner fears, insecurities and needs. Same issues seem to repeat itself over and over again until South Node makes a conscious effort to break these cycles.
Despite many obstacles and challenges, once formed, it is a very difficult bond to break. Even if the relationship doesn’t work out, both partners eventually learn very important lessons on their emotional growth.
Venus conjunct South Node (North Node opposite Venus):
This aspect is characterized by a powerful urge to be close to each other. In the past life, it is very likely that this was a romantic relationship that prematurely ended due to external circumstances- just like in the story of Romeo and Juliet.
Venus conjunct South Node is a karmic rope that was sewed with the desire to be reunited once again. It is as if when you come together, you feel comforted and whole. Unrealistic idealization is often mutual, but especially for South Node person, who could be seeing Venus as this ‘’perfect’’ partner that came to rescue them. And this is exactly where the problems start.
As the passion settles and same past circumstances start straining the relationship, they both tend to sweep things under the rug or just ‘’give up’’ when things get too hard. Venus person’s issues on self worth could be triggered, or South Node may get too lazy in the relationship.
However much they just want to stop the time and live in a pink bubble, tracks of evolution never stop. Eventually, one partner may want to escape this pink bubble if they had outgrown the other. The lesson here is to encourage each other’s evolution and take a more realistic approach towards love.
Mars conjunct South Node (North Node opposite Mars):
Every interaction is bursting with passion and dynamic energy. As usual, tighter the orb, the more intense. If it is a romantic relationship, sex has an addictive quality. If it is a partnership, competitiveness is the driving force.
This synastry aspect indicates that in the past life, there was an unfinished ‘’battle’’ between the two partners. Now, Mars person feels this as a very strong desire to ‘’take action’’ towards the South Node. SN person feels a surge of energy in the presence of Mars: The more Mars pursues and invests their attention, the more they get addicted.
Despite the irresistible attraction, Node person may eventually outgrow the connection, or feel that the constant push and pull dynamic is too draining.
Saturn conjunct South Node (North Node opposite Saturn):
This connection feels like an unavoidable karmic pull, so much so that it is like a fly trapped into sticky resin. It is often very heavy, cold and limiting, especially for the South Node person, yet they can’t seem to move out of it, and this can go on for a very long time.
There may be significant obstacles as well, such as an age gap, traditional differences, physical and emotional distance, etc. On the other hand, there may be a lot of coincidences or ‘’synchronicities’’ that are hard to ignore.
The sense of commitment is very strong in both partners, however, due to these difficult life lessons and obstacles constantly thrown into the relationship, it may feel like finding the right person in the wrong time. Saturn person’s lesson here is to work on their fears and need for control. If Saturn turns into an immovable object or a domineering force, South Node feels invalidated, hurt, or even abused. South Node may be avoiding necessary changes in order to grow out of their comfort zone.
After a while, they may grow a dependency for each other even though the relationship is dysfunctional. South Node-Saturn conjunction is a lesson on learning to work together as a team through hardships, respecting each other’s independence in every step.
Pluto conjunct South Node (North Node opposite Pluto):
This is a mutually passionate, obsessive, transforming kind of aspect. Knowingly or not, Pluto person usually becomes the lead and stirs South Node’s subconscious patterns and traumas. Many uncomfortable, undealt past experiences come to the surface through this relationship as a result of a past life power struggle.
Just like Saturn conjunct South Node, sometimes this aspect may indicate a codependency or abusive tendencies. South Node being the comfort zone, it doesn’t respond very well to change- and this is exactly the reason why Pluto comes into their life.
South Node conjunct Pluto is a lesson on control: what to let go and where to move on, even at times it is the hardest thing to do.
