If you believe in karma, it’s something we all come into this life with, and your natal chart can show you where that karma is focused. If it seems like you’re always dealing with drama in your love life, it could be because you have some love karma that you need to work out.

Where can I find love karma in my natal chart?
So where do you find the possible love karma you may have? There are a few places karma is located in the natal chart, but some of the main ones will be found with the:
- 12th house
- South Node
- asteroid Karma (number 3811)
If you have your 12th house cusp, South Node, or asteroid Karma in:
- Libra (sign of committed relationships) or Scorpio (sign of intimacy), this can show having love karma you need to work on
So can having your South Node or asteroid Karma:
- in the 7th house (of committed relationships) or 5th house (of love)
- conjunct your natal Venus
And so can having your natal Venus in the 12th house, conjunct the North Node (so opposite the South Node), conjunct Pluto (heavy planet), or square your Lunar Nodes.
In Vedic astrology, Saturn is considered the Lord of Karma, and he does show areas where we have lessons to learn, so you can have some love karma to deal with if you have Saturn in Libra or Scorpio, in the 5th or 7th houses, or conjunct, square, or opposite your natal Venus.
What does having love karma mean? Am I destined to be alone?!
Having love karma doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re doomed, but it does show you have to work through some extra blocks to have healthy love and relationships in your life.
Your love karma could be soul baggage that you need to work on releasing. Meditation, chakra or aura cleansing, or energy therapy can be helpful.
Often, having any of these placements can show that you have not just soul baggage, but baggage you’ve taken on in this life as well, so you have to also work on whatever blocks have been created in this life before you can have the love you want and deserve.
Once you do work through the karma and baggage, you actually have the potential to create incredible bonds with others, and form love relationships that are connected so deeply on a spiritual level. This is often the reason why you have love karma in the first place. You have to work through it as a test before you can have the incredible love you're capable of having.
