Relocation Astrology:
Change your Destiny by Moving

Changing where you live as a way to change your fortune is an idea that has been around for a long time. There are countless examples of people who say that “their luck changed” once they moved away from where they were living. Others maintain that their lives “took a turn for the worse” when they tried living in a different place.

Does Astrology have a way to determine the outcome of moving to a different location? Yes it does, through a technique called Relocation Astrology.

The interpretation of the horoscope depends on two structural factors: how the planets were arranged in the zodiac at the time of birth, and how the entire pattern was positioned relative to the exact place on the earth where you were born. The first part of the structure gives us the signs of the planets and their aspects to each other; the second part of the structure puts the planets in the houses of the chart. The first part is going to be the same no matter where you are on the Earth at any given time, but the second part changes depending on where on the Earth you are placed. Since the analysis of the one’s astrological chart depends so much on the houses (the various “departments” of life), which in turn depend on the location of birth, you, and your destiny, would be different if you were born somewhere else.

This then, becomes the basis of Relocation Astrology. With the help of the personal computer and the software written for it, a few keystrokes creates a whole new birth chart for you as if you where born in the place you are thinking of moving to. Similarly, we can search the globe for where your birth time would have created the most optimal astrology chart for professional success, or for marriage, or winning the lottery, or... the possibilities seem endless!

So all we have to do is move to the new location with the best chart set-up and Voila! Life will be Wonderful! Ahh... would that it were that simple.

In reality, where you were born actually has a lot to do with your destiny; the “flash photo” of the Heavens taken from the place of your birth doesn’t go away simply by moving to a new spot on the globe. But it can be modified. Although your essential nature and destiny won’t be different, some of the potential positive outcomes can be strengthened, and negative or difficult karmas weakened. By re-creating your birth chart as if you had been born in the new location, and comparing it to your actual birth chart, the astrologer sees which elements of the celestial pattern will be emphasized in the new place. For example, if you lack opportunities for marriage in your life, your could try moving to a place where Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, would end up in the 7th house of marriage for you. The potential of that part of your chart would then become more dominant. Likewise, there may be undesireable components in a birth chart whose potential to manifest can be decreased by choosing a location that de-emphasizes their importance.

If all this works, then why not just visit the new place to experience the new good karma? That sounds logical, and sometimes people do experience immediate results, but mostly what happens is that it takes a while to adjust: the habits and memory patterns of years of experience in one location do not disappear so quickly by simply moving somewhere else. I.e., you have to give it some time; usually several months at least.

Another corollary to all of this is that the place on the Earth which would emphasize a part of your chart can be the source of something, or someone, who strongly impacts your life. For instance, if moving to the Far East would emphasize the 7th house of marriage in your natal chart, you may have a particular fascination for, and potential success with, an Asian partner. If the 9th house of your chart gets strengthened by having you born in India, you may find “religion” by following the path of Yoga or Hinduism. Similarly, if a particularly negative pattern in your birth chart gets emphasized in some part of the world, then people or ideas or even material items from that country or culture could have an undesireable effects on you.

Relocation Astrology is a fascinating  technique for altering components of your destiny.  It is not the final answer to every problem. But it can be considered as another type of practical remedy in the Vedic Astrology arsenal of techniques for “Negotiating with Destiny.”
