Do you know what your relocated Imum Coeli means for you?
The IC – as Imum Coeli (bottom of the sky) is known – symbolises home and roots. It lies at the bottom of our natal birth chart, dividing the third and fourth house.
It is often totally overlooked in chart interpretation, in favour of the more glamorous Midheaven. The third house is often also overlooked, despite the fact that it symbolises not just our immediate family in terms of siblings and cousins, but also our neighbours and the immediate environment in which we live.
Our immediate day to day environment forms us in ways we don’t always realise or acknowledge. Its influence works like a form of osmosis, and it frequently makes how we react a default setting, even more so than our Ascendant.
We can spend decades being influenced by those around us, especially if we have grown up in a small-scale rural environment. A conservative environment for someone with say Aquarius, (as Uranus rules Aquarius) would be hugely constricting, for Uranus loves freedom.
On the other hand, that highly Uranian IC may also play out in the form of a quietly unconventional upbringing, for planets below the horizon. Hence, planets between the first and sixth house are not “seen” by the rest of the world. Their energy plays out in a far quieter manner, often subconsciously.
So in astrocartography we may feel we are relocating to enhance our career – our Midheaven – but, when we look at our current and ongoing transits, we may in fact be yearning for a greater and more supportive sense of home.
Planets on your relocated IC
Planets on our relocated IC will give us clues as to how this new sense of home will play out. Uranus either ruling or on a natal IC can lead to a sense of rootlessness, a disconnection from home. So what we may in fact really need – for a time anyway -would be a relocated IC in the more homely sign of Cancer, where the Moon becomes the relocated IC ruler.
It does not always take as long as we think to put down roots and create a nurturing home for ourselves.
It will take even less time to create a sense of home if we have the Moon quietly helping us. Or we may subconsciously bring lunar type friends into our lives in our new location, to help embody a sense of home.
And we all need nurturing Cancer type mammies in our lives now and then!
Or our natal IC may be in Libra, hence having a sense of harmony and balance in our home lives may have been part and parcel of how we grew up. And in our new environment, we may have Capricorn as our IC ruler, hence we may feel a greater sense of duty to those we love and who are now part of our “relocated family!
What themes will be triggered for your?
In our relocated astrocartography map, how certain planets aspect our IC will indicate what themes will be triggered in our new location. If we have Mercury noviling our IC, then there will be a sense of magic in how we communicate at home.
If we have Saturn trining our IC, then the much maligned Saturn is, in fact, helping us put structure and routine around our home life.
The major planetary aspects such as trines, conjnctions and squares, have a wider radius of 138 miles, where the minor aspects such as septiles, deciles, bi noviles and the plethora of other minor aspects, have far smaller radiuses of between 34 and 17 miles.
Which is why as I have written before, the minor aspects are so crucial in astrocartography.
Sometimes even two or three minor aspects can rise up and softly support us, even if we relocate to live in an area replete with squares and semi squares! Which it is so crucial to look at the relocated chart before moving to the astrocartography map.
