Relocated charts help you explore how relocation – temporary or long-term, for work, love or vacation – can help you acheive your full cosmic potential.
Astrocartography is quite the buzzword in astrology these days, with all this talk about astrocartography and planetary lines! But relocated charts can be, and usually are, overlooked. The purpose of a relocated chart is to regenerate your natal chart “as if” you had been born in the new proposed location.
In this new astrological chart, your planets will move house, often very significantly.
- Your relocated Ascendant symbolises a new way of seeing the world, and being seen.
- A relocated Descendant symbolises how others now see you and those you collaborate with.
- The relocated Midheaven is your new role in the world – what your new legacy now will be.
- A relocated IC (home and roots) is where home now is and where you now most feel at ease, nurtured and nourished.
Therefore, when the planets in your chart change houses, as they most certainly will do, you will feel the effect of different energies in these houses.
Finding different energies in relocated charts
When I moved to Cape Cod from Ireland, my Sun, Venus, Moon and Mercury moved to straddle my IC (home and roots), so I did indeed feel valued, nurtured and seen, at home. My Sun moved from my twelfth house in Ireland, where I am not really “seen” to my third house, which symbolises community and belonging.
I was never more part of a community than in Provincetown – volunteering in the local Soup Kitchen, joining the local playwright’s lab, then later a local memoir group, working from a co-working artist’s space.
I loved it all!
So, if your Venus moves from its natal placement in say your fourth house – where you feel valued at home and often work at home to, say, your tenth house in your relocated chart and new location, then there will be a stronger emphasis on being valued out in the world.
If your Sun moves from your eighth house – which usually indicates being in a long-term relationship – to your second house in your relocated chart, then you will shine in relation to your finances and also your movable talents and skills.
If your Mercury moves from your sixth house which is very much the house of how you do things on a daily basis (and means you probably value communication on a practical level), to say your ninth house, then teaching and writing will open up for you in your new location, and in a whole new way.
There are twelve houses in a natal birth chart, twelve planets (including Chiron and Ceres), and along with the Nodes, this means there can be major potential changes in your relocated chart it will be important to explore.
Which is why it is crucial to have your relocated chart done along with your astrocartography maps when have an astrocartography chart reading. They go together like sunshine and beaches!
