Astrocartography Is the Hottest New Trend in Travel Planning

Summer is upon us, and wanderlust is in the air as travelers prepare to seize the moment and embark on new adventures. Whether lounging at all-inclusive resorts, embarking on thrilling backpacking escapades, or reconnecting with loved ones, the desire to explore is universal. While you may already turn to astrology to decipher life’s mysteries, did you know that the stars can also guide your next vacation destination? It’s true! With the magic of astrocartography, seasoned astrologers can decode your birth chart to unveil which global cities resonate most with your unique energy. To illuminate this intriguing realm further, we’ve tapped into the wisdom of professional astrologer and astrocartography specialist Lisa Stardust to equip you with all the essential insights on using astrology to plan your next getaway, relocation, and beyond.

What is Astrocartography? A Guide to the Astrology of Travel

Astrocartography, the study of relocation astrology, involves using your unique birth chart to map the energetic influences of your planets over the world. By comparing your cosmic blueprint to a world map, astrologers can determine how different cities bring out various aspects of your personality. This personalized approach reveals which locations most align with your celestial energies and how they specifically apply to you. “I’ve seen a growing trend in people using astrology to plan their vacations, move to new cities, or seek out spiritual experiences,” says Stardust. “Astrocartography allows us to find the answers they’re looking for in the most important areas of their lives, like finding love, making a career change, or just relaxing.”

How to Read Your Astrocartography Chart + Lines

Your astrocartography map uses the same information as your birth chart, but it can be more challenging to interpret at first glance. When you look at your astrocartography chart, you’ll see a series of colored lines running vertically, each representing different planets from your birth chart. These lines indicate how a specific planet in your birth chart manifests in your astrocartography map and what energetic influences you might experience when you travel or move to those locations. “One great thing about astrocartography is that while your energy may shift from place to place, the cities that align best with your birth chart always stay the same,” explains Stardust. That means once you discover your personal ‘zones of genius’ through astrology, you can always return to those locations and tap back into that power.

These are the main planetary lines in astrocartography:

In addition to each of your astrocartography planetary lines, there are four key cardinal points, each representing significant aspects of one’s life and experiences. Each planetary line will intersect with one of your cardinal points, offering multi-layered energies that you can align toward your highest good. For example, there are four cardinal points, so you’ll have four Sun Lines in your astrocartography chart. While each line shows how your ego and heart expression will be expressed, your cardinal points show which area of your life that energy will play out.

The main cardinal points in astrocartography are:

How to Use Astrocartography to Plan Your Future Vacation

One of the most popular uses of astrocartography is for travel. Whether planning a solo trip, a vacation with friends, or a romantic getaway, knowing which astrocartography lines are active in the city you’re planning to visit or move to can give you insight into the experiences you might have there. Additionally, you can choose activities and excursions that best complement your personal astrocartography. For example, if you’re headed to your Mercury/MC line, it might be the perfect time to pack some books you’ve meant to finish for your plane ride. Hoping to rekindle the spark in your love life? Visit your Venus/DSC line and watch how quickly things heat up. There’s a planetary line for every travel occasion!

“Selecting the perfect destination involves identifying cities that complement the strengths of your birth chart,” says Stardust. She adds that some people’s charts are easier to read than others, and you might have to get creative with your planning. “Not everyone’s best planetary lines align with a city, but fortunately, you can travel within a 700-mile radius of your astrocartography lines and still experience their full impact.”

How Astrocartography Can Help You Decide Where to Move

While some people are looking to the stars to plan their dream vacation, others hope to find the best city to relocate to. Astrocartography reimagines your birth chart as if you were born in a different city at the same time. Using astrocartography to decide where to move works similarly to planning a trip – but as Lisa Stardust points out, it’s important to consider how the long-term influences of a place will work alongside your birth chart as you age.

“Each planetary line represents a chapter in your cosmic story, waiting to be activated as you journey to new destinations,” explains Stardust, “So, before you embark on your next adventure, be sure to align with the planets that resonate most with your aspirations.” And, of course, if you’re nervous about traveling halfway around the world because astrology told you to, you can always test out the energy of a new location first by planning a vacation there!
