Moving? Try a relocation chart.
What’s a relocation chart?
Sometimes, you can bloom where you’re planted. Some people have very lucky or fortunate charts. They can thrive where they’re born or raised and have no desire to leave. However, others can’t bloom where they’re planted. There’s usually something wrong with their lives, and you can see it in the astrological chart.
Astrological charts are not just a snapshot of the sky at a specific time, but also a specific place. While the planets may be in the same signs in the same degrees, the houses and the angles all change when you move the chart from one location to another. This means that problems that may exist in some places could disappear in others…or turn into assets.
Where do you move?
It’s not much good to move north or south to change the chart if you want to move planets. This is good, however, for changing the size of a chart. For example, the closer you get to the equator, the larger the first and seventh houses are, and the smaller the 4th and 10th houses. The further you get form the equator, the smaller the first and seventh houses, and the larger the 4th and tenth houses.
However, you need to move east or west to move the planets into different houses. This will shift the entire focus of an astrological chart. It can move planets into or out of places of prominence. It can change your ascendant and midheaven. You understand how people may take on different personas while living in different places? That’s an example of relocation chart magic.
How does it work?
Let’s say you’re born with Saturn in the 7th house. This can make it difficult for you to make friends and have lovers wherever you’re born. However, if you move west, Saturn will move backwards. You could say, put Saturn into the 5th house if you’re a serious type and don’t want children, or the 6th house if you’re a hard worker and not worried about your health.
