The Relocation Chart
A relocation chart is simply an ordinary natal horoscope moved to a different location. It's a chart cast for the same cosmic instant of birth, but looked at from another location, as if the birth happened there. The planets' sign positions all remain the same, but they will appear in different houses at different locations, thus altering their strengths and areas of influence. So, if you were born in New York, for instance, and then moved to Paris, your relocation chart would have any first house planets shifted about 90 degrees clockwise into the tenth house; tenth house planets would be shifted into the seventh house, and so on, thus giving your natal chart a whole new look for your Parisian adventures. In fact, if it turns out to be a significant improvement, you might even want to move there. Or, perhaps you might just want to visit when you are doing the kind of things that your Paris relocation chart favors -- work, play, health, creativity -- depending on your planets' relocated house positions.
The Relocation Map
Although any one relocation chart opens up new possibilities for you when you travel, if you put a lot of them together and trace them on a map you get a set of marked-out roads of opportunity that stretch around the world, each of which will add strength and emphasis to specific parts of your personality and potential. There is a geographical ribbon running many thousands of miles around the globe, every mile of which gives you Mars rising, adding to your energy and individual power whenever you are on it. Another gives you the Sun rising, another, the Moon, and so on. Around the other side of the earth are similar routes on which your planets are always exactly setting, on the cusp of the seventh house. Similarly, there are north-south pathways each 12,000 miles long where individual planets are on your Midheaven or IC if you go to them. Together, they make up an often-intersecting set of personal highways, a grid of 40 planetary lines that mark out your chart's strongest places for relocation, where one or more natal planets are on the angles.
And if that's not enough potential roads to travel on, there are a total of 180 global lines that depict where your 45 major planetary midpoints are on the angles, adding a subtle substructure to your planetary potential. Altogether, they depict your own personal World Wide Web of highways and byways that add special strengths to your chart and promise new heightened adventure and return for simply taking a trip. You'll find that there's hardly a place on the planet you can go without discovering a new slant on life, a new take on what you already have working inside you.
Windows Of Opportunity
Finally, as your personal progressions and transits move along and affect your natal chart, these same changes will be touching your relocation chart as well, but often quite differently. This will mean that certain parts of the world open up as unique windows of opportunity for a limited, but golden time. A look at these will tell you not only where to travel, but when is the optimum time to be there as well. Find out the best of where and when, and then book your ticket, with the stars on your side.
The Armchair Traveler
You don't have to actually show up at a strong relocation place to have it affect you. You may well find that areas where you have locality planets, midpoints, transits, or progressions on the angles have a way of waltzing into your life unannounced, or that you'll find yourself dealing with people who live there in a way that is described by your chart in that locality. In the era of electronic world travel, you may not need to go out of your door to find your different relocation charts working for you.
Local Space Astrology by Michael Erlewine
If you were to walk outside your home at the moment of birth and look around you, the Sun, Moon, and planets would each be somewhere in the sky above and around you. For example, the Moon might be rising low to the Southwest, and so forth. If you were to draw a line from your birth spot in the compass direction of the Moon, it would extend across (and around) the Earth, passing through any number of cities. The circular line of those cities and places mark a path across the earth toward the direction of the Moon. If you did this for the Sun and all the planets, you would be examining a map of the space surrounding your locale. That map would be a standard geographical map with the direction of each planet laid out on it as lines. This is why I originally called this technique Local Space Astrology.
At any given moment, the Sun, Moon, and all the planets are above a certain spot on earth and in a particular direction from your birthplace. In fact, not only planets and stars, but also cities, countries, and even the local water tower or the neighbor's house has a place and direction on this map. It does not matter how far away an object is, we only want to know in what direction it is. You can walk toward, write letters to, or get up and relocate into, for instance, the direction of Venus or Mars, and we each do this all the time.
Local Space maps are useful when it comes to relocation and/or when we want to pick a city (and direction) of a planet we would like to experience more of, like perhaps Venus (love, beauty, value) or Jupiter (might help us find our life path or career), and so forth. There are also planets we might like to experience less of, as well, so we might avoid those spots. But these lines are also great for picking spots for vacation and business trips, as well as checking out where friends and not-so-friends live. It could be someone all the way in China or as close as a neighbor's house.
Understanding Local Space allows you to fine tune your life by picking the places you live or want to visit in terms of what they can add or take away from your overall life experience. For example, if you are struggling to find the right career, you might want to take a trip or have a vacation in the direction of the planet Jupiter (the planet of vocation) and see what develops. Or, as I myself did, you may want to permanently relocate to a Jupiter spot until you can find your way to making a living. Or, if you find yourself living in a city along your Saturn line and you feel too hemmed in and inhibited, you might want to just move to a city in line with a planet that is more encouraging. You get the idea.
Check out your Local Space Chart and look at each line to see in what direction it is and what cities or places it passes through. Read about and consider what each planet offers you in the way of qualities and changes. Don't forget about the places where your friends and not-so-friends live, whether they are far away cities or just across town. Give it some thought. Local Space can be very useful in fine-tuning your life experience through astrology.
Angles in Signs
Ascendant in Scorpio
You've got everything to gain here from hiding something -- or at least pretending to. Playing an intense and somewhat mysterious role comes naturally and will get you the most attention with the least risk. You're at your best when smoldering, with just enough smoke to show there's fire down below.
Midheaven in Virgo
If you make others think you've got it all under control, your ability to show how sincere you are is strengthened. In other words, if you know it, show it -- and you can even fudge that a little and chances are no one will guess. Ultimately, it's choosing the right situations to follow up on that gets you your rep here.
Planets on Angles
Any planet on one of the angles (Ascendant, MC, Descendant, IC) of your relocation chart will be greatly strengthened when you are at the place of relocation, very much like if it were on the angles of your natal chart. If the Sun is on an angle, you'll have more confidence; if Mars is there you'll have more energy, and so on. Moreover, you don't have to actually go there to get the effect. Having a planet on a relocated angle will accentuate that place for you even if you are only doing business with people there over the phone. You have an accentuated quality to people in such places that you may not have elsewhere.
Natal Mars Sqq DS (Strong)
You can sometimes find your efforts at cross purposes here and your coordination and timing will require fine-tuning before you get it right. That means going into any project with enough reserves to do and re-do until you know it's on the right track. Lessons learned bring wisdom, but first you have to learn them.
Mars in Second House
You can throw all your energy into building investments here, whether they are physical, financial, or just for the principal of the thing. Take off the kid gloves and get your hands involved and you'll find you become an integral part of the action. Stake your claim, then put in what it takes to make it come true.
Natal Jupiter Ssq DS (Strong)
It can be easy to overdo it here, whether it is physically, mentally, or emotionally. Let less be more and make sure you leave them asking for an encore by leading with your best and then getting offstage. No matter how perfect you get it, if you push it too far, it loses its flavor, for you and all around you.
Jupiter in Fifth House
Your creative space here can be enormous once you find where you can spread out and do what you really want. You can not only take advantage of what's here, you can introduce new approaches that add your own twist and take root as if they were native. It's a fertile field for your imagination if you think and play big.
Natal Moon Local Space Line (Strong)
The Moon points to places where you can look to for support and nourishment, an environment that is usually nurturing and protective. This is a location where feelings, nostalgia, and the past are important, where younger people have a voice, and the sense of family is strong.
The Moon is said to be both mother and child. As a mother, it represents the past, in the sense of where you came from, your roots and history. In this role, it is nurturing and like a parent. You came from there.
But it also is like your child, in that you can look back at your youth and roots (where you came from) and see younger people living there now, as you used to live. In this sense, it is like your child, something you understand only too well.
Moon in Second House
Your feelings about the landscape and what's on it can run strong here, and you might well be tempted to buy a sizable scoop. You'll love it more if you can own it and get physical, so don't hesitate to get your hands dirty in this garden. You'll find you've got a green thumb waiting to happen here.
Natal Venus Local Space Line (Strong)
Your Venus line offers a lot more than just having something to do with love and loving. In fact, Venus has to do not only with loving, but also with valuing anything, people and things, as well as appraising, and possessions, in general. Any city or place along this line, and it runs in a great circle around the earth, will bring the qualities of Venus into focus. Venus rules everything to do with cherishing, valuing, and measuring things and people. Sometimes it is love, as we know it, but as mentioned above, it is valuation of any kind -- estimating the value and quality of something. In this sense, it covers possessions and possessing of all kinds.
If you don't appreciate enough, whether that be people or things, locations in this direction should find you at least counting and measuring, and perhaps even cherishing and loving. It could also bring out a somewhat greedy side, if you are already leaning in that direction.
Venus in Third House
The art of conversation will get you everywhere here, even if you don't technically speak the language. It's all about communicating your desires and desirability by whatever method seems to work. Try several. Friends that please will gather around -- then it's up to you to find out who's just an acquaintance.
Natal Venus Tri DS (Strong)
You can make it obvious what you want here without actually being obvious about it. Just act naturally, and you'll be putting out just the right message of both desire and accommodation that will set things flowing nicely. It's easy to look good without having to overdress the part, casual is classic, and you're it.
Natal Mercury Ssq IC (Strong)
Mixed messages may seem like the norm here, and you should always have an eye out for spin control in case someone has misinterpreted something they've heard about you. It's not necessarily hurtful, just confusing, so take the time for that second and third press release until you've got everybody on your page.
Mercury in Second House
Your head is going to be on material matters here, so figuring out the landscape and how to make it pay will be an important part of how and what you have to say. Concrete plans bring productive results and you don't have to think outside the box to fill it up. If you're in it for the money, this could be the place to be.
Natal Moon Tri DS (Medium)
Feelings find outlet more effortlessly here -- not necessarily by a direct route, but sometimes by an open door that invites you to walk through. You're more naturally at ease with the way you relate to the environment, so the rest flows along without having to think about it or analyze your emotions.
Natal Moon Ssq IC (Medium)
It might be wise to put your opinions through the editing process before you let fly with your off-the-cuff feelings here, as off-the-hip shots could get you into a quagmire of explanations and misinterpretations. That doesn't mean clam up all the time, just know that you may have to do some spin control when you don't.
Natal Venus Ssq IC (Medium)
If they offer you something you don't want here, it's not meant to offend. They just thought they'd heard you liked it. Getting your desires and tastes spread abroad here can take some extra footwork, so don't be afraid to speak up until things are as you want them to be. You may have to repeat yourself.
Natal Mercury Sqq DS (Mild)
Talk is not cheap here, it's expensive. You may have to say the same things several different ways to get your message across. It's just that they think they hear one thing from you, while you're actually saying something else. It will eventually get cleared up, but expect to have to repeat and clarify yourself.
Natal Saturn Sqr DS (Mild)
Hesitation can be your downfall here, but it can also be hard to decide when to make a move so as to avoid it. Outer and inner criticism are easy to come by, but getting to the heart of the problem takes both time and patience, along with good intentions on all parts. Keep on going until that happens.
Saturn in Third House
The less said the better, or at least you'll hope that's true here, as communication may be short and spotty. That doesn't mean no one's out there, just that wasting words is not what's going on here. Say it and be done with it, make a single conversation or phone call suffice, and move on. That could also reflect the cultural/language difference, if there is one.
Natal Uranus On MC (Mild)
No matter what you do here, chances are you'll be viewed as an original and what you do will be something unusual or offbeat, at least as viewed by others. So, it's a great place for a no-holds-barred adventure, as long as you are ready to roll with the unexpected and thoroughly undervalued predictability. If you have a brilliant and commanding vision, here you can both feed it and promote it, even though a somewhat bumpy social path may accompany it. Ups and downs, feast and famine, fame and notoriety -- all may alternate at disconnected intervals, the very essence of exciting escapades. Your explorations and discoveries are likely to be much heard about, although not necessarily in the light you envisioned them, and if you're looking to leave a unique legacy, this just might be the perfect place to start. For all the above reasons, this is probably not the place for a peaceful retirement cottage. Go here, live here, for vision, inspiration, and the challenge of stormy seas and brilliant flashes of lightning to illumine your quest. And if it doesn't quite amount to all of that, don't let on, as folks will believe every tall tale you tell about it.
Uranus in Tenth House
If people think you are a little strange, just say it's because you're from out of town and have treasures and secrets they'd love to have a peek at. What's of no consequence to you might seem brand new to the locals, so don't hide it, trade on it. You can become known as an innovator here, though only sometimes will you get full credit for your own, unique approach.
Natal Mars Sxt IC (Mild)
Compliments on your accomplishments and your general energy level of getting things done can be expected without your having to solicit them. That can be a career boost, as you're not swimming against the current, but have the public tide behind you. Living up to expectations and self-promotion come more naturally here.
