Astrocartography – Locational Astrology
What is Astrocartography?
Astrocartography and locational astrology are little known, but highly specialised aspects of astrology.
We are born where we are born – that’s fate. We usually live where our parents wish us to live until we are old enough to decide for ourselves. Then we may start to hanker for other places.
You may have a dream to travel, explore, or even relocate.
As an astrocartographer, I have seen my own life changed by moves within Europe and across continents. I draw on my training and also my own experience of travel and relocation in our consultations to help you to find the very best places for you to visit or begin the next stage of your life.
An astrocartography reading can help you find the best places in the world for you. It can also help to pinpoint the optimal times to move so that you can make the best decisions about when and where to live your life to the fullest.
What is an Astrocartography Map?
An astrocartography map charts the findings from your natal birth chart across the whole world to find the best places in the world for you to live in or visit. I take your relocated birth chart and regenerate it for another place, as if you had been born there to see how well it aligns with your purpose and potential.
In a new location, the planets will usually change houses, and the Ascendant, Mid Heaven, Descendant and IC may all change signs. Even a move of just 20 miles can make all the difference to what a place signifies for you!
When you base your natal chart in a new place, your chart will have a totally different emphasis. Certain houses will be more activated than they were before and planet angularity – which means planets on the Ascendant, Descendant, Midheaven or IC – will usually change significantly.
In your consultation with me, we will explore the meaning of your chart and the lessons it offers about the best ways for you to move forward towards greater fulfilment.
As an astrocartographer who has experienced as well as studied the astrology of relocation, I can identify aspects of your astrocartography map that might seem minor to the untrained eye but which are crucial in helping you pick the best place for you to live fully and creatively.
The Astrocartography Process
There are a number of steps involved in an astrocartography reading, that will allow you to benefit from the insights that locational astrology provides.
First you must book a natal chart reading which is the cosmic blueprint on which your astrocartography reading is based.
Then you need to arrange a transit session so that we can take into account the patterns and opportunities that are affecting your life in the current moment.
When you confirm your astrocartography consultation I will then prepare your astrocartography map so that we can fully explore the best places in the world for you to experience life to the fullest.
The Three Steps in the Astrocartography Process
How your Astrocartography Map is Interpreted
Astrocartography uses up to 24 different aspects to calculate the range of planetary influence. A planet trining or conjunct one of the angles in the natal birth chart will have a range of up to 139 miles / 222 km. Meanwhile, a more minor aspect, such as a quintile which represents manifesting creativity, will have a range of just 34 miles / 55 km. A quincunx, which symbolises awareness and adjustment, will have a 51 mile / 83 km radius.
When your astrocartography reading is complete, we will explore its implications so that you are better equipped to make decisions around relocation and travel. Through our reading, you will gain an understanding of which planetary archetypes will be highlighted if you move location. You will better understand – and so be better able to manage – the impact they may have on your life.
Arranging an Astrocartography Session
Please note: To sign up for your astrocartography session, you must first book a natal chart reading and a transit session which are prerequisities for an astrocartography consultation.
Your natal chart reading and transit forecast are essential elements in the astrocartography process. They are the elements that shape the construction and interpretation of your astrocartography map and that is why you need to complete these sessions before you book our astrocartography session. It is through this series of readings and consultations with you that I can help you identify the best places for you to bring forth the finest aspects of your personality.
Whether you are planning to relocate or dreaming of expanding your horizons through travel, your astrocartography session can help you decide where to take your life next.
Your Astrocartography Session
In preparation for your astrocartography session, I will map the planets in your natal birth chart to find the most supportive places worldwide for you to live and flourish. Using your natal chart and transit reading, I will regenerate your natal birth chart in a new location, as if you had been born there. In your relocated natal chart, the planets will usually change houses, the Ascendant, Mid Heaven, Descendant and IC may all change signs.
Your chart will have a totally different emphasis and certain houses will be activated in ways that can empower you and stimulate your creativity. A move of even 20 miles can make a huge difference to the aspects of your life that are highlighted in your astrocartography reading.
In our one-to-one, confidential Zoom consultation, we will explore your astrocartography map and its significance in relation to your hopes for the future.
Astrocartography can help you to decide about large moves across continents or changes within your current environment. The insights the reading offers about your life and potential can help you to decide where to relocate. It can also help you decide where to travel to renew your strength and imagination.
