So you can’t change your *actual* birth chart, or what astrologer Angel Eyedealism of Angel Eye Astrology (yes, her name is awesome) calls your “astrological DNA.” But you can take that wow-I’m-bad-at-adulting part of yourself and reorient it, sort of, using astrocartography. That’s a very fancy name for a mapping method used in “relocation astrology,” the process of looking at what your life might be like if you lived somewhere else. Think of it as going down a Zillow spiral…but vibe-ier.
True astrocartography is wildly complicated, but the gist is that it takes your birth-chart data and scatters it all over the world to recreate snapshots of the sky in other places you might have been born. The new hypothetical birth charts that this creates can then show you where the planets would land in each of the 12 houses on your chart—and what that would mean for your relationships, career, literally everything. Remember when I said that this was wildly complicated? Yeah.
IRL example: Say restrictive Saturn is currently in your 7th house of relationships, giving you only so-so luck with finding love. Moving far enough away (aka changing time zones) could reposition Saturn somewhere less meh. (This is a good time to point out that relocation astrology is a super-individualized practice, which explains why Paris might be amazing for one of your friends but totally stressful to you. Not for me though. I look great in berets.)
Real pros like Eyedealism can predict what would happen if you migrated to your dream city or help you zero in on the best possible spots for you based on your specific goals. Within reason, of course: “You can relocate your chart, but you’ll still have the same contentious planetary angles wherever you go,” says Eyedealism. As in, if you have Pluto squared to Mercury in your birth chart, you’re always gonna have defensive tendencies.
Your MIP (most important planet, duh) here is Jupiter, and your most important move is placing it in a house you want to dominate. If you want all the money, you’ll want Jupiter in your 2nd house. Sex? Get it over to the 8th house. Its overall best spot would be right on your Midheaven line, which sits at the very top of your chart between the 9th and 10th houses. This lucky spot sets you up for success, fame, and wealth—think of it like your own personal Kylie Jenner line.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: How can I possibly figure this ish out on my own? While it’s definitely best to get a pro reading (you won’t get the full picture without it), you can technically test out where our pal Jupe lands for you in various cities around the world. Just generate an online birth chart with your OG info changed to reflect what it would have been had you been born at the same time but in L.A. or Buenos Aires or Bangkok or wherever.
If you need me, I’ll be starting my life over in Rome, where Jupiter is waiting for me on my Midheaven. Arrivederci!
