Astrocartography is used to see and predict where in the world certain energies will arise to the surface. Relocating for travel, temporary or permanent purposes will shift the houses of the birthchart, resulting in a changed energy in life.
On astro.com you can find your Astrocartography chart under the section ‘AtroClick Travel’ . You’ll see various colorful lines crossing certain parts of the world, and those lines are used to see whether a place will bring positive energy or challenges. The four angles are used to see which energy will be highlighted.
The four Angles/Cardinal points
• ASCENDANT : Personal expression
• IC : Your roots, home-life
• DESCENDANT : The other person, people, relationships
• MC : Your status, career
The lines and their meaning
Creates a happy feeling, uplifting energies. Can amplify the Ego-expressions and the ability to be more in control over your desires and destiny. Overall detached as a result of being more ego-driven. Good to fulfill the ego-needs, but balance is needed. Creativity and pleasures are themes under this line, but make sure not to overindulge. Would be good for a vacation destination.
When conjunct to one of the angles, especially to the IC, it indicates a past life. The person has likely spent past live(s) or has a profound emotional connection to this certain place. One may feel at home here. Creates more intense emotions and sensitivity. Feeling emotionally connected to oneself is possible when living or traveling under a moon line. Can create repetitive behavior, it’s good for skill development and could help to find career goals when conjunct to the MC. The Moon line is beneficial for manifestation of dreams, rooting back to the self and soul-searching.
Gives mental activity and can make one more chatty than usual, however there could be a blockage in communication due to overstimulation, can result in overanalyzing or going within your thoughts to much. A place with a mercury connection is a good for writing, studying, networking, business, and connecting with new people. This energy is neutral. Self expression could be difficult at times. A good placement for retreat or a vacation.
When Venus is conjunct and angle, it can point to a place where one may meet a love interest. This is very beneficial for relationships. To harmonize, flirt, date,.. but also ideal for a honeymoon destination. This energy is very positive. It brings pleasures and joy, but can make one a bit lazy and childlike at times. It may be hard to put in effort or to work in such places, unless it’s connected to arts and the beauty industry. One may not feel like working much here. A Venus-line is good for expression and inspiration. It brings luck often times. Ideal for development of creative abilities and romance.
One of the hardest aspects to live under but it can bring a lot of energy and passion. For a woman it can indicate frustration with men. It could cause delays due to impatience. There is a lot of direct energy in such places where one has to be careful not to get small injuries as a result of such. It could create a tendency to have multiple priorities but finishing or balancing them could be a difficulty. Time management needs mastery to prevent frustration. It’s good for sports and physical activities. One may feel encouraged in such places.
A very beneficial line to live under or travel to. Jupiter expands and is an uplifting energy. It brings success, higher education, philosophy and fun. This can bring opportunities to expand your goals in life. Good for manifestation and abundance. It’s a combination of feeling inspired and acting upon that. Is likely more beneficial than the Venus line as she tends to make you a bit lazy or could over compromise. A Jupiter line could make you gain weight too if you overindulge.
One may feel drawn to philosophy and study religious or spiritual topics. This is a good place for healing.
A very hard aspect to have on one of your four angles. Living under a Saturn line literally indicates that you are dealing with life as the school of hard knocks, you’re learning vital lessons under this line so don’t be afraid because Saturn will give results when you put in the hard work. It teaches patience and persistence. You will work harder than what is considered normal. On the other hand, it teaches maturity and growth. It can help to learn how to detach from your emotions to get a more objective perspective onto yourself and life.
Makes mentally energetic and a bit nervous so it’s better for inspiration rather than physical activity. Gives a feeling of restriction at times which may result in restlessness and rebellion. A lot of insights can come to you in such places what could result in losing faith (such as conspiracy theories driving you nuts). It has a possibility to bring lots of contradicting emotions. Physically it could feel draining to be here especially if you’re hyper sensitive to environmental input or even energetic ones. But it’s a good place for learning as it tends to bring a lot of (higher) information and a possibility to experience an awakening.
Makes you dreamy and imaginative, beneficial to focus on your inner truth. Good for traveling, not so much for living under a Neptune line, especially when it conjuncts the IC (could bring water damage into the home). It stimulates your creativity and romance but it can also dissolve your boundaries and make you overly empathic and sensitive. This place may create a strong desire for escapism. It can be a challenging place for people who struggle with addiction as it can make it worse unless you came here for retreat and rehab, therapeutic practices are beneficial in overcoming. There can be conflict with other people as you tend to not see them for who they really are. Careful for illusions and deceit. Aside from that it’s a good place for spiritual matters and for a vacation.
A very hard line to live under. Can bring issues towards sex, money, isolation, pain. This energy is very transformative in essence. It’s beneficial if you want to break a destructive or unhealthy cycle in your life such as addictions or self abuse. Going to your Pluto line can bring very karmic relationships that are needed for evolution on a soul level. This place requires a lot of hard work in order to see beneficial results. It’s a bit similar to a Saturn line when it comes to finding or building your career purpose. This place can bring an awakening, a brutal eye-opener a breakthrough of psychological nature.
Indicates a place of fated events. Mostly eye-opening or difficult. It makes ambitious, however it could create a tunnel-vision where one may forget about other things in life, careful for blind spots. Traveling to such place helps to reconnect with your purpose in life. You could feel a strong pull or connection to that place, and if possible i would suggest you travelling there for a vacation rather than permanently living in that place.
A spiritual place to live or travel to. Ideal for working through past wounding, shame, insecurity,… One may finally come to understand what their wounding is all about in such place. However it could amplify insecurities, but it also helps to set boundaries and do the inner work that’s needed for healing. It’s more beneficial as a (spiritual) vacation destination rather than living under this line.
On Astro-seek.com you have a calculator that shows an actual birthchart. There is the possibility to see the relocated version of the birthchart and the synastry of both birthchart + relocation chart.
• Birthchart : Innercircle
• Relocation chart : Outercircle
The ASC will change, and depending on where you would go in the world, the ascendant also changes signs. In this chart the Birth ascendant (Aries) changes to a Gemini ascendant, showing a more lighthearted and intellectual approach to life. It falls into the natal 2nd house, highlighting the area of possessions, values, money and self-esteem.
The NortNode is conjunct to the DSC, showing this place to bring fated events in regards to other people and relationships, however it serves more clarity in what one may truly seek and need.
The Neptune-Uranus conjunction sits onto the MC of the relocation chart, this indicates some confusions, rebellion and changing thoughts about career and direction in life, work and status may occur in that part of the world. This is how you read an Astrocartography chart the easiest way.
Pastlife in another country
Rather difficult to be 100% sure, but it is possible to find indications of that via Astrocartography. First of all it makes sense if you have a specific attraction, pull or feeling of homesickness regards a certain country/place in the world. This is where Astrocartography may show some insights and results.
Such as :
• Moon-line crossing the country/place
• NorthNode-line crossing the country/place
• SouthNode-line crossing the country/place
An example is the chart mentioned above, in which the Southnode conjuncts the relocation ASC.
A very strong indication of having had a pastlife on that place or a karmic soul connection to a person from this area.
