The Astrology of a move

There are classic indicators of moving in astrology Uranus transiting the 4th house almost always suggests a move, perhaps more than 1 move and several renovation projects within the home. Saturn planet of restriction in the 4th house indicates delays or some stifling influence within the home! When I’m reading for someone and see this in a solar return or via transit of the 4th house I have to tell them they will probably be staying put for a while.

Originally I wanted to move in August 2011, obtaining a mortgage was a breeze but I had issues with the Condo Board and was ultimately denied. (I thank the stars every day that sometimes a no is really the universe’s way of saying you deserve better) Here was my planetary situation during the time i was den-ied (Gemini Suze Orman voice)

Mercury was in Retrograde: Obviously a bad time for any written material and contractual obligations especially with it being in the 7th house of partnerships (legal and otherwise). My application was actually lost (by the board) and I had to resubmit it. The amount of errors in terms of paper work was quite extensive. May I add not on my end.

Saturn transiting my 8th house was in a very tight square to my Sun and opposing my moon see previous entries for more information on the hell this transit manifests. In retrospect I felt like I was pushing and pushing for the things I wanted and not getting any where.

In terms of my Solar Return chart for 2011 SEE BELOW

The Solar Return Chart begins with The Sun in the 2nd house which shows in 2011 a lot of my focus was on “value” what I value, who I value, making money.  The Sun Represents July and each house proceeding the Sun represents a month in the year So the 6th house is November , the Midheaven is March and by the time I reach The Ascendent (the 2nd most important placement preceding the Sun) that represents June. I moved the last week in May. I wanted to move way before that but …

So here we are the astrology of a move, wow what a difference a year makes.

In terms of progressions I experienced a “new moon” that is progressed moon in tight conjunction with natal sun this summons in new beginnings.

Transiting Jupiter was transiting my natal 3rd house of community conjuncting my natal venus in the 3rd house, good luck and beauty. Venus and Jupiter represent abundance. Tramsiting Venus also conjunct my natal Jupiter in the 4th house, the 4th house literally rules real-estate.

Saturn was off my sun and moon as well as in Retrograde motion giving me a chance to Re-do what went wrong .

Uranus which took up long-term residence in my 1st house made its way out and into my the 2nd going out, changes in finance, change in thoughts surrounding values.

People always want to know a few things in astrology, when will they find love, when will they move, have a baby and health are usually on the agenda. These were not clear cut, obvious signs of moving…I think mostly the Preogressed New Moon is very powerful as was Jupiter and Venus joining my natal Jupiter and Venus.

Im always interested in hearing your expierences with astrology. Please always feel free to comment.



  1. Thanks for the interesting post. I use the Porphyry house system, which puts your 2nd house on Pisces. I tend to find the 2nd house of stronger importance to a move than the 4th. Keeping in mind Neptune as the 2nd house ruler, on the Solar Return chart you have Mars opposing natal Neptune, trine Moon and Saturn, which sextile back to natal Neptune. This would be, to me, a strong indication of a move. Add to this that Mars is in your 4th house, and that the planets Moon and Saturn both refer to home environment, and you have quite a recipe.

    On the move date itself, Uranus is applying into trine to natal Neptune. Also Saturn had just passed your North Node (still conjunct) and was trine your Jupiter in the 4th. Where the Placidus system works out nicely is that Uranus would be right over your 2nd house cusp on Aries and Jupiter conjunct your natal Mars, the ruler of the 2nd house.

    Based on all that I would think your move ultimately signifies a happy life shift! Hope that bears out as truth.

  2. Well, your article helped me in my quest to understand more about the astrology of relocation, so I’m happy to contribute. I suspect a big move in my future and want to take in as much info as I can so I can be prepared. Glad your move has worked out so well for you! 🙂

  3. I had a “sudden” but not totally unwxpected relocation and a big move when progressed moon came to my Ascendant.
