When there are conjunctions to the South Node in synastry (your South Node on one of their planets or theirs on one of yours), the South Node person’s entire way of being resonates with one of the other’s planetary functions. For example, their South Node is on your Saturn, and their entire way of being somehow correlates with your work in the world, your maturation process, or some kind of hard lesson (a Saturn cliche but for a reason). Their South Node is on your Venus, and their very history of being relates with your values and your aesthetic, like the kind of person you’ve been waiting for.
When your South Node is touched by another person, that function of their personality represented by that planet brings you into a psychic space that goes far back – synchronicity can be more likely to occur, and they feel oh so familiar, like maybe you’ve known them for a series of lifetimes. And you potentially have – or you’re just in a similar archetypal vortex that has you getting each other like no one else does.

I get the feeling that beyond romanticizing the fated-feeling of these relationships, (which is like Eden when it works and heartbreaking when it doesn’t) there is significant personal growth and self-knowledge potential through these encounters.
