If you are planning a relocation or looking for the best place to recharge and energise yourself when travel becomes easier again, astrocartography – or locational astrology – can provide valuable insights.
As an astrocartographer, I get huge pleasure from helping people find the part of the world that is just right for them at this moment in their lives – the one where the positive aspects of their potential and personality are supported by the alignment of the planets and the stars.
How to prepare for your astrocartography reading
Over the last few weeks, my blog posts have focused on strategies you can use to get the most out of your astrocartography reading. The process can produce really rich insights when you enter into it in a reflective state of mind.
Taking time to engage with your hopes and fears before I begin interpreting your astrological charts can open up your heart and mind to the insights the reading offers.
That’s why journaling and visualisation are wonderful preparation for the process. (Last week I set out 10 tips for journaling and visualisation that you can use in the days running up to your first reading with me).
When you have opened your mind and heart to the possibility of change, it is time to begin the series of readings and discussions that will shed light on the best places in the world for you.
The three stages of the astrocartography process
In fact an astrocartography reading relies on the interpretation of three astrology charts:
your natal birth chart
your transit forecast
Your astrocartography maps
In this blog post, I want to talk about why a natal chart is important in locational astrology, so that you can understand how astrocartography works and how it can contribute to your decisions about where to live your life.
Your natal charts and transits charts need to be read before I draw up your astrocartography map, and so the first step in your astrocartography journey will always be to sign up to have a natal chart reading.
Why your natal birth chart is so important
Your natal birth chart is your cosmic blueprint. It represents the raw essence of you, stripped from the expectations placed on you by your family, your job, and society. We are all shaped by the place of our birth and its place in the cosmos, just as much as we are affected by changes in our lives and the shifting movements of the planets and stars in the years that follow.
