If you have your birthchart (please see Find Your Soul Mate With Astrology on how to do this) and it shows your North or True Node in the sign of Cancer then you have chosen to walk the path of the Spiritual Nurturer.
Your Soul Path Journey: You’re here to explore and also use your emotional and nurturing gifts. It doesn’t matter if you are male or female. The capacity to nurture and care are human qualities shared equally between the sexes. If you are male, you are able to offer protection and compassion. If you are female, you are being asked to be a mother on some level whether you have children or not by nurturing and perhaps even mothering your own inner child as this path often means that you may feel your experience of being mothered left much to be desired.
Your South Node: Is in Capricorn, the master builder and whose ruler Saturn rules the karma in your chart. You are being asked to build an emotional place of safety whether it’s for yourself or for others you care about. You are also being asked to consider whether these issues around emotional security have their roots in more than one lifetime (hint: they do!).
How Your Soul Mate Will Recognise You: Your soul mate will love the fact you can give emotional support yet still stay grounded (that’s due to your South Node in Capricorn). As you and your soul mate get closer you will feel its okay to be vulnerable and your capacity to help and support others will just be enhanced. If this is a romantic soul mate, you will create a solid home base together that others will love to spend time in due to its feeling of homeliness.
It’s Not A Soul Mate When: You are becoming rigid, stubborn, putting conditions on love as in ‘I will only continue to love you provided you . . . ‘, indulging in passive/aggressive behaviour and making unilateral decisions for the two of you without consulting your partner. If you recognise any of these behaviours emerging this is your cue to leave.
Remember, every connection we make is here to teach us something about ourselves. North Node in Cancer is all about being able to give to others from a place of being whole, healed and nurtured yourself – so make you your caring priority first and the rest will just fall into place naturally!
