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.

The 4th House In Astrology

The 4th house is naturally ruled by the zodiac sign of Cancer, planets placed in the 4th house are security conscious: emotionally, financially and residential. You can look to this house for clarifications on your home life growing up, the relationship with the female parental figure as well and our death. From the cradle to the crave is the 4th house as it also rules endings

The Sun in the 4th house enjoys the home environment; they have natural parental instincts and prefer being surrounded by family. Putting down roots and acquiring a home of their own is important with this placement. The feeling of belonging. Home decor may be ostentatious.

The Moon in the 4th house may experience many fluctuations in their child home, perhaps moving a lot. You may find yourself searching for a place to call home. A song by Dido called Life for Rent reminds me of this placement, Dido sings “I haven’t ever really found a place that I call home I never stick around quite long enough to make it” There is a sense of wanting to belong, being that the moon rules cancer you are emotionally attached to home and probably all things past.

Venus in the 4th house indicates you want a beautiful home, you want to be surrounded by nice art and architecture. Benefits from parents perhaps via inheritance. You may enjoy hosting parties with home cooked meals and prefer a harmonious home where you can retreat.

Mars in the 4th house tells the story of a person that uses his/her aggression in or around the home. This may come in the form of working around the house, such as renovations. May indicate being the “alpha male” type on the domestic front. May indicate fires in home.

Mercury in the 4th house a lot of thought and communication center on the home environment. You may work from home or have some involvement regarding home schooling. Sometimes indicates a natural affinity toward history

Jupiter in the 4th house good luck through real-estate indicates a beautiful home, perhaps one that is quite large. I read that being that the 4th house is also considered “the end” or how your life ends Jupiter indicates the end of life will be comfortable. Joy and expansion via home environment

Saturn in the 4th house indicates a serious childhood, perhaps a childhood where you had too many responsibilities or a childhood with an authoritative and cold father figure. They key is to not in turn take these principles with you into your married home later on in life. Also it may be hard to leave your childhood home, you may feel stuck there, and ultimately you decide your life path.

Uranus in the 4th house tells of 1 of 2 things either something is strange in your childhood home; perhaps there were a lot of moves or changes. Maybe your mother was a hoarder or was sort of like Cher in the movie Mermaids. Something is eccentric about the home or the 2nd manifestation is you are the one that is different and you want o break free of your childhood home and set off on your own path

Neptune in the 4th house tells a story of something not being entirely clear about your home. For some one of the parents had addiction issues or some part of you had to be self-sacrificing in your youth. You may have loft dreams about creating an oasis out of your home surrounded by water.May indicate floods in the home

Pluto in the 4th house indicates power struggles in the home. Power is a main theme, domineering tendencies. Questions regarding who had the power in your childhood home. May carry an essence of shame regarding where you came from. Secrets in the childhood home. Not the easiest of placements, but then again rarely are any of the Pluto placements
