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 colored 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. Gives a bigger Ego and the ability to be more in control over your desires and destiny. Can make you a bit detached as you tend to be more ego-driven. Fulfilling 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 spent past live(s) in this certain place. It creates a feeling of home. Creates more intense emotions and sensitivity. Feeling emotionally connected 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.
Gives mental activity and makes chatty however there could be a blockage in communication as the Mercury line is a concentration of this energy, resulting in overanalyzing or going within your thoughts to much. A place with a mercury connection is a good for writing, studying and making new contacts. This energy is neutral. Self expression could be difficult at times. A good placement for retreat or a vacation.
When Venus is conjunct to one of the angles a marriage can be indicated towards this location, meeting your spouse in that area or finding love. This is very beneficial for relationships. This energy is very positive. It brings pleasures and joy, but can make you a bit lazy and childlike at times. A Venus-line is good for expression and inspiration. It brings luck often times.
One of the hardest aspects to live under but it can bring a lot of energy and passion. For a woman it can indicate annoying men surrounding her. It could cause delays due to impatience. There is a lot of direct energy in such places. 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.
A very beneficial line to live under or travel to. Jupiter expands. It brings success, higher education, philosophy and fun. This can bring opportunities to expand your desires. An uplifting energy. Good for manifestation and abundance. It’s a combination of feeling inspired and acting upon that. Is more beneficial that the Venus line as Venus tends to make you a bit lazy or could over compromise. A Jupiter line could make you gain weight too if you overindulge.
A very hard aspect to be having 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 you patience and persistence. You will work harder than what is considered normal. On the other hand, it teaches you maturity and growth. It can help you 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 what can create 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 brings a lot of contradicting emotions at times, physically it could feel draining. But it’s good for learning as these places tend to bring a lot of (higher) information.
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. It makes you want to escape and it’s not beneficial for addictions. Could bring conflict with other people as you tend to not see them for who they really are.
A very hard line to live under. Can bring issues towards sex, money, isolation, pain. This energy is very transformative.
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 you to transform on a soullevel. This place requires a lot of hard work inorder to see beneficial results. It’s a bit similar to a Saturn line when it comes to finding or building your career purpose.
Indicates a place of fated events. Mostly eye-opening or difficult. It makes you ambitious to be under this line however it could create a tunnelvision forgetting about other things in life. Traveling to a Northnode place could help you 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, to work through past wounding. It could amplify your 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 2nd house of the birthchart which highlights the area of possessions, values and money.
The NortNode is conjunct to the DSC, showing this place to bring fated events regards other people and relationships. When it comes to relationships, this person will find more clarity when traveling to this place.
The Neptune-Uranus conjunction falls onto the MC, which shows some confusions, rebellism and situations regards career, 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.
Local Space Chart
This is another method in which you can check the best locations for you. I have written from own experiences and observations. You can find more here .
