The Relocation Chart
A relocation chart is simply an ordinary natal horoscope moved to a different location. It's a chart cast for the same cosmic instant of birth, but looked at from another location, as if the birth happened there. The planets' sign positions all remain the same, but they will appear in different houses at different locations, thus altering their strengths and areas of influence. So, if you were born in New York, for instance, and then moved to Paris, your relocation chart would have any first house planets shifted about 90 degrees clockwise into the tenth house; tenth house planets would be shifted into the seventh house, and so on, thus giving your natal chart a whole new look for your Parisian adventures. In fact, if it turns out to be a significant improvement, you might even want to move there. Or, perhaps you might just want to visit when you are doing the kind of things that your Paris relocation chart favors -- work, play, health, creativity -- depending on your planets' relocated house positions.
The Relocation Map
Although any one relocation chart opens up new possibilities for you when you travel, if you put a lot of them together and trace them on a map you get a set of marked-out roads of opportunity that stretch around the world, each of which will add strength and emphasis to specific parts of your personality and potential. There is a geographical ribbon running many thousands of miles around the globe, every mile of which gives you Mars rising, adding to your energy and individual power whenever you are on it. Another gives you the Sun rising, another, the Moon, and so on. Around the other side of the earth are similar routes on which your planets are always exactly setting, on the cusp of the seventh house. Similarly, there are north-south pathways each 12,000 miles long where individual planets are on your Midheaven or IC if you go to them. Together, they make up an often-intersecting set of personal highways, a grid of 40 planetary lines that mark out your chart's strongest places for relocation, where one or more natal planets are on the angles.
And if that's not enough potential roads to travel on, there are a total of 180 global lines that depict where your 45 major planetary midpoints are on the angles, adding a subtle substructure to your planetary potential. Altogether, they depict your own personal World Wide Web of highways and byways that add special strengths to your chart and promise new heightened adventure and return for simply taking a trip. You'll find that there's hardly a place on the planet you can go without discovering a new slant on life, a new take on what you already have working inside you.
Windows Of Opportunity
Finally, as your personal progressions and transits move along and affect your natal chart, these same changes will be touching your relocation chart as well, but often quite differently. This will mean that certain parts of the world open up as unique windows of opportunity for a limited, but golden time. A look at these will tell you not only where to travel, but when is the optimum time to be there as well. Find out the best of where and when, and then book your ticket, with the stars on your side.
The Armchair Traveler
You don't have to actually show up at a strong relocation place to have it affect you. You may well find that areas where you have locality planets, midpoints, transits, or progressions on the angles have a way of waltzing into your life unannounced, or that you'll find yourself dealing with people who live there in a way that is described by your chart in that locality. In the era of electronic world travel, you may not need to go out of your door to find your different relocation charts working for you.
Angles in Signs
Ascendant in Virgo
You'll be wise to play your cards a little carefully in this environment, or at least make it seem that you are. If it looks like you're picking up every stitch, you can let some go and get away with it, as long as you play the part. If you show you know your proper place, the place will be yours.
Midheaven in Gemini
This is certainly a place where people will talk about you, so you may have reason to keep an especially close ear to what they're saying. You can go far on a favorable breeze, but things can turn on you rather suddenly, so make sure you know local protocol and always have some specific backup options available.
Planets on Angles
Any planet on one of the angles (Ascendant, MC, Descendant, IC) of your relocation chart will be greatly strengthened when you are at the place of relocation, very much like if it were on the angles of your natal chart. If the Sun is on an angle, you'll have more confidence; if Mars is there you'll have more energy, and so on. Moreover, you don't have to actually go there to get the effect. Having a planet on a relocated angle will accentuate that place for you even if you are only doing business with people there over the phone. You have an accentuated quality to people in such places that you may not have elsewhere.
Natal Pluto On AS (Strong)
This will likely be a place of considerable challenge, somewhere you will change or be changed ineluctably and without quarter. In English, that's do or die for you and those around you, though not necessarily quite that literal. You'll find that either you don't have much choice about what goes on here or that you have to take total control in order to be sure of getting what you want. It may be a great place for life lessons, but they may not be easy, at least at first. Faith, and what it takes to follow it, is at a premium here. Determination is the name of the game, and be as willing to force a hand as to have your own forced, depending on who's better armed. Know when to hold up, fold up, walk away, or run and you'll be OK. Stay here for long and you'll be a changed person, but don't feel you have to, because no one expects it of you. But when you just can't help it, this is where you'll find a run for your money, where you'll be playing for keeps.
Pluto in First House
You may find yourself being especially forceful here, and you may have to be in order to get things done. The trick will be to do it like a natural force and not like an ego trip. That means checking out your motives before you push your way through. If you don't really need to do it, let someone else ahead of you.
Natal Sun/Mercury On AS (Strong)
Let your personality speak for you here, tell your story, and you'll be understood, even if you're just learning the local language. You can sell yourself here and clarify just what you want with plenty of follow-through. Remember that it's an ego trip and let your ego reign, but articulate it, write it down, make a contract out of it.
Natal Neptune Tri DS (Strong)
You have imagination -- your own and others' -- going for you here, and playing parts may come quite naturally to you, without having to give up your own true identity. A sense of what people would like to see you as comes naturally, and so does your natural ability to actually fit the idealized mold.
Neptune in Third House
People will say anything here (and you reply in kind), but getting them to be specific and make airy conversation turn to concrete results may be a bit dicey. It's not necessarily insincerity or dishonesty that's to blame, just good intentions without solid foundations. When needs are specific, insist on clarity -- otherwise be happy to shoot the breeze.
Natal Jupiter Ssx IC (Strong)
It's easy for people here to think of you as the latest and greatest, as that will be what they naturally hear first. Your job is not to get in the way of that rumor and do all you can to confirm it. Make the most of free good press and then add a little bit to keep the ball rolling and you're set.
Jupiter in Third House
You inject a lot of optimism into the air here, and you're likely to be on the phone a lot passing out the good word. You can also encounter a lot of hot air doing just that, so encourage expansion but try to keep out the riff-raff. All talk and no action comes easy, but you always have to start somewhere, and that somewhere can be you.
Natal Sun/Pluto On AS (Strong)
You can push your way to get your way here, but you may find that the surroundings push back. If it's transformation you're looking for, it's to be had, but at the price of giving up some part of your ego not easy to part with. Remember where you are and that the locals have the edge, even when you seem to be on top.
Natal Neptune Ssx IC (Medium)
You can be tagged as a dream-maker, a wish-fulfiller here, and whether you become another Walt Disney may be all about how you play the hand that's given you on arrival. What people hear about you may not be real, but it's not bad, either, and pretty easy to step in and fill the role in a comfortable and profitable way.
Natal Moon/Uranus On MC (Medium)
Whatever sudden, spontaneous moves you make here, they will stick to you, so watch what you do in public. You can find yourself in the midst of adventure, but you should avoid spats that may reflect your feelings of the moment but don't do justice to your reputation. Emotional insights abound, then spread around.
Natal Jupiter Tri DS (Medium)
It's easier to come off like you really are ahead of the game here, simply by being optimistic and making the first step, any step. You roll right into the trends and probably look like you're leading them, and all without much effort. A positive attitude comes easy, and it eases your way anywhere you show up.
Natal Mercury/Pluto On AS (Medium)
If you let your ideas get too intractable, you'll be in for a battering -- although you may find you're up against some serious prejudice here. Avoid confrontational issues -- instead seek the mutual depths below that transform surface tension into a shared sea. Where you find stubbornness and willfulness, there you also find commitment.
Natal Mars/Saturn On DS (Medium)
People may seem forceful yet demanding at the same time. They'll be in it for the long haul, so you should be prepared to play the same game. Spontaneity of action may be at a premium, and intention and follow-through are everything. If you're not as serious as those you meet up with, humor them or they'll want none of you.
Natal Saturn/Neptune On IC (Medium)
There may be something about this place that cramps your dreams or seems to put painful reality in the place of hope. Not a great vacation spot, but could be good for business if you're trying to remove the fantasy factor and boil down possibilities to a single focus. Your Santa Claus rarely visits here, in all likelihood.
Natal Sun On AS (Medium)
You shine with a brighter light here, and you can put out more personal influence and have it match the surroundings more here than in other places. On the other hand, you can be pulled into an ego trip without really knowing it, as beckoning flattery can draw you out beyond your real supply line. Nevertheless, it will feel like your Sun is always rising and you're basking in the blooming light of day, because that's literally the case. After a fashion, you'll feel like you were born here and that your flowers were made to blossom in this fertile soil. That may or may not be a guarantee of long-term success, but it can do a lot to fuel it. Because you feel you're on familiar ground, you can project yourself with greater confidence, since you, in some very inner sense, "speak the language" and identify with local issues and culture. You'll be well-received for this very reason, but always remember that in some more temporal sense you're a "come-here" and not a "from-here," so don't overstep boundaries like you own the place. Speak from your heart and you'll be heard, but don't presume to speak from the hearts of others.
Sun in First House
You can come on as strong as you want here -- you have an excess of sheer personality power that can carry you farther than you might think. That's partially from something about the area that gives you a boost of ego and pure energy and enthusiasm. In general, you can sell yourself and name your price.
Natal Moon/Venus On MC (Medium)
If you're asked what you want, respond sincerely and an all-points bulletin will go out to get you what you need. Your emotional motives are on display, however, and you'll hear about it later, so make sure it's something you want to hear about. You can become a magnet, so watch that you attract only what you really like.
Natal Sun/Venus On AS (Mild)
You can come on with charm and personality here and it will get you everywhere. Let your light shine and make clear what it is you want and you'll likely get it. You'll give and receive a little bit of sunshine whatever the weather outside, and as long as you're honest and open, you'll reap the rewards of an open hand and heart.
Natal Jupiter/Saturn On IC (Mild)
For whatever reason, you may have an unusually good read on how people relate here, how they play the rules, how they play each other. That makes this a great place for business if you choose, and for easy and enlightening socializing even if you don't. Basically, it seems like home after some fashion, so the game comes naturally.
Natal Mercury On AS (Mild)
You can lead with your head here in ways that might be more difficult elsewhere. Somehow what you say will get across more clearly and your ability to analyze situations will be particularly strong. In a similar vein, you'll be able to pick up on the local lingo especially well; so if you have to go to a second language, you'll be able to do so more swiftly and communicate well despite initial language barriers. It is as if you find a shared mindset which you can immediately address because you already know what's being said, since it's what you were talking about to begin with. Remember, however, that head, heart, and hand are different functions, and though you may agree intellectually, there may be other subtexts that aren't so unusually in tune, so don't presume you've got everything surrounded just because you think you do. Agreements spoken or put on paper may come with ease, but take care that when the discussion is over you are all really on the same page at unspoken levels as well. When all is said and done, what's done is done and what's said may be only worth the paper it's written on. Nevertheless, you've got a distinct working advantage here.
Mercury in Twelfth House
Thoughtless words could get you in trouble here, so edit what you say before you let it out into the environment. Inappropriate ideas (that might not seem so to you at the time) can come back to haunt you, so spend as much time listening as you do promoting your own version of things. You'll go deeper that way.
Natal Sun/Uranus On AS (Mild)
You can be at your most brash here, and you probably will be. Spontaneity will get you everything, and don't be afraid to change your mind, because so will everyone else, often out of the blue. Don't tie down your plans, but keep opportunities open-ended, as they will turn on a dime and so will you.

C*C*G Planets on Angles
Transits to Angles
Location charts respond to transits very much like your natal chart. Although Jupiter, for instance, may not be transiting your natal Ascendant right now, it is transiting your relocated Ascendant somewhere, and that somewhere is likely where you'll easily get a lot of extra attention and enhanced personal prospects if you go there or start doing business with people there. The same goes for the rest of the planets, so you can travel to seek or to escape their transits at the place of your choice.
Progressions to Angles
Although you can't escape your natal progressions, you can go experience them someplace else, particularly where a favorable progressed planet relocates right on an angle and thus gets extra emphasis. As with transits, your progressed relocation paths will tell you where it's happening according to the nature of each planet. Being that they are progressions rather than transits, the effect will be more internal than external, but noticeable all the same.
Progressed Mercury Ssx IC (Strong)
Your ability to put your career goals and accomplishments into words grows a notch this year around here -- or, rather, it grows into what may have been clothes that didn't quite fit before. You can comfortably promote yourself because you're at ease with who you are and what you've done -- the script is second nature for a while.
Progressed Venus Ssq IC (Strong)
If you're not entirely satisfied with your own accomplishments, others here will have a problem with it as well this year. It's partly because you're more interested in moving on to the new, but you shouldn't allow that to get in the way of pride in your own resources. One flows from the other, after all.
Progressed Mercury Tri DS (Strong)
You'll feel very on-message here this year, but without having to make a big deal about it. Words just flow more smoothly out of your mouth and your brain is naturally in gear without having to pump the clutch. Body language does a lot to get the point across, and you may not even know it's happening unless you catch yourself on video.
Progressed Mars On MC (Strong)
A long-term ability to focus on career and professional matters is coming to light here, so it could be a good place to get work and promote the work you are doing. It's not so much the physical energy itself that's on the rise, but your growing inclination to put your shoulder to the wheel in areas that have real effect.
Progressed Mars Sqr DS (Medium)
You're in a several-year period of personal wastefulness here that saps your resources because it's hard to focus your energies. False starts, detours, and general timing problems need to be addressed so that you can get the mileage you naturally should. When in doubt, just wait until you're sure you really have to make your move.
Transit Saturn Ssx AS (Medium)
You're in for a year or so of fairly consistent support from the situation in this locale, at least insofar as you show yourself to be a part of its establishment and don't rock the boat. People look to you for security, so remember the feeling for when it comes time to reverse the process.
Transit Saturn On DS (Medium)
This might not be the place to go right now, unless you love pressure and hard work. That doesn't mean you'll get work here, perhaps the opposite, but you'll be expected to do double duty in any case. If you want to look older, it's the place to be, as you'll appear a bit more serious and traditional. Expect at least a year of this here.
Transit Pluto Ssq DS (Medium)
Expect several years here when trust may be an issue and pressure may seem the only way of getting your way. You're best off avoiding confrontations, as they will only lead to complications, so find a negotiated way out whenever possible. But remember, it's up to you -- blind faith in a positive outcome won't bring one.
Progressed Mars Sxt DS (Medium)
You're in a several-year period of heightened effectiveness and strength here, possibly without being really aware of it. Just count up your recent daily progress, however, and you'll notice the difference compared to previous years. It's derived from getting into the rhythm of the place and thus wasting no energy.
Progressed Mercury Sqr DS (Mild)
You may catch yourself giving mixed messages this year, especially as it relates to your body language and gestures, so check your mirror and your video cam before you give a speech to the locals. It's not that you don't know what you mean to say, it's just that the point gets lost in the way you're laying it out, so work on your script and direction to iron out the kinks.
Transit Pluto Sxt DS (Mild)
You're in for a few years of engendering a lot of faith in yourself here, just by showing up. You look reliable, somehow, like when the chips are down you can pull everyone through, so you might as well live up to the potential and be a fount of certainty to those around you. If you say it will be OK, it will.
Progressed Moon Ssq AS (Mild)
You can feel a bit at odds with yourself here for a couple of months, feeling a bit disjointed in the way your reactions bubble up. Timing is off, as you react too soon or too late because your antennae aren't quite in tune with what's going on. It passes, so in the meantime be deliberate when spontaneity fails.
Progressed Sun Sqr DS (Mild)
Keeping your ego appropriately packaged in your skin may be a challenge here for a year or so, as it's easy to go overtax your physical limits with your own enthusiasm and the message in your heart may not be reflected in your mirror. Looking the part will ultimately be essential, so tweak your exterior to suit.
