It is promised in the Natal chart when an individual will travel or live abroad. It’s mostly seen within the 4th (homeland), 6th (daily routines), 9th (travel) houses. Aswell as the condition of the cadent houses and the ASC ruler should be taken in consideration to make sure if it’s the individuals’ destiny to live abroad.

Meaning of the Houses

1st House:
It represents self, the native and personality of an individual. Connection of this house to 7 and 12 indicate foreign travel.
1st house ruler in 9th is a strong indication for traveling abroad for a longer period of time.

3rd House:
Signifies short journeys, because it is 12th from the 4th house. 4th house symbolize motherland house.

4th House:
Represents a place of residence, a home. For foreign settlement, one of the conditions is malefic planets or aspect of these planets on this house is necessary. Thus affliction to this house is necessary for departing from the country.

7th House:
Signifies travel, partnership business and spouse. Its connection with the 12th house is also essential for foreign visits. It is also observed that spouse may be from foreign country. If ASC ruler or Sun is placed in 7th is could indicate the individual traveling abroad because the 7th house is opposing the ASC (most far away from the self).

8th House:
This house has also a key role to go out of the country.  It indicates Sea Travel. In modern times it is also called as the house of Occult and research house.

9th House:
Represents a long journey. This is the most important house which signifies foreign travel. Well placed 9th house lord indicates the person will prosper in a foreign land. This house also represents spiritual learning as well as higher education. Its connection with the 12th house is a strong combination for the foreign journey.

10th House:
Represents occupation. This is also the house of Karma. Its relation with 9th, 3rd or 12th houses shows that natives will travel abroad for occupational purposes.

12th House:
Represents foreign settlement. When the 12th house falls into the sign of cancer it’s indication for foreign settlement is amplified, but you have to look at the condition of the Moon and it’s aspects aswell.

Movable signs

 Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn

When planets are placed in movable signs, especially a stellium or if most of personal planets are placed in these signs,
it could indicate foreign settelement.

Northnode, Moon, Saturn and Venus in watery sign give good indication of foreign travel.

I consider SouthNode in 4th as an extra indication in the Natal chart.
It represents a detachment to the home country / family / home.
Having SouthNode in 2nd is also an indication of lesser detachment to security , such as possessions = house. It also indicates that the individual has few interests in their family and siblings.
