Where do we place ourselves in life? Our environment is something we should never take advantage of though it's something we need to carefully consider when deciding to relocate. Afterall, our surroundings are what refelect our personality and put us at ease. For some of us, living in a comfortable, familiar habitat is necessary to secure our personality, for others, pushing boundries and exploring the unknown is necessary in making sure we explore new beginnings and opportunities for personal development. Either way, how can we be sure that we are placed in the right setting? Without knowing what environment suits us best, we can't thrive or push our initiative. Astrological readings and an analysis of our signs may be the answer to your problems when it comes to relocation. The decision regarding where to move is, without doubt, extremely important, but how can we be sure we have made the right decision?
Where we relocate, if we have decided to take the plunge and move elsewhere, is critical in defining who we are and what we represent. Deciding exactly what destination and what terrain is right for us can be a daunting prospect. Astrocartogrophy uses your location and the elements within your natal chart to identify which part of the world, our map, are angular at the moment of your birth. If a planet is angular, it is conjunct with one of four angles: Ascendant, Descendant, MC or IC. With the use of these angular readings, we can counsel you when it comes to deciding where you should relocate to or travel. Where we live affects our mood, our productivity and our health, so it is natural to have the desire to use our natal chart to certify where is best for us to relocate. The date, time and place of your birth provides an accurate estimation for which destination is best suited for your lifestyle and way of living. Perhaps there is a country that you feel particularly drawn to, or a place that speaks to you personally? Well, these feelings are normal, as they contribute to your personality and define where you should live. Being born when a planet is angluar can be replicated by relocating a person to an alternative planet on an opposing angle. An astrocartography map consists of the outline of the Earth composed with vertical and horizontal lines, though it is possible to acquire a map for each hemisphere. There are 40 lines along our world map that allow us to provide astrocartological readings, all of which are directly linked to the planets: the ascendant, the descendant, the immuni coeli and the medi coeli. Your natal chart is a map of the sky at the time of your birth that uses your chart to identify which angle for each planet were present at your time of birth. Lining out the results allows us to accurately predict which part of the world suits our needs and our desires. If we are in the right place at the right time, then our relationships, career and love life will all fall into place.
