If you missed my post on social media, I am starting up a new business, uniquely geared to helping expats move to places in the world that are aligned to their astrology.
What is Expat Astrology?
Last year I found out about astrocartography through booking a session first for myself, then one for Rob and then I booked one for Riley with Lunafinula. Siobhan explained to me that such a thing exists where you can plot your Astrology natal birth chart onto a map of the world. Depending on where the stars and planets were in the sky when you were born, they run across the world showing you places where you may find love, fame, family, connection, luck, abundance as well as struggle, pain, growth, change/reinvention, rebirth, healing and transformation.
It is called many different names: Astrocartography, Astrogeography or Astrology of place. Learning about astrology and how it maps out all over the world has been this eye opening experience for me, and its something that I feel called to share with others. I have always loved travel, and now that I am again living in foreign country – finding out that there is a reason why I have been called to certain places all over the world in my lifetime was just too good not to share with you!
My Expat Family
I am not sure I ever told the story of how my parents met, but I think its the most perfect expat love story. A love story that by all accounts would not have been possible, had my greater family not been expats already. My dad is South African, and my mom is Canadian – and they met in Canada because their older sisters were next door neighbours!! Their families knew each other before my parents met, how incredibly special that is? The fact that all of my dad’s side of family were all born and raised in South Africa and that they chose to move to Canada of all places, is the reason my parents were able to meet in the first place. Now when I look at their birth charts on the map of the world, this love story is clearly shown – it was written in the stars all along.
The same goes for how my brother now lives in Mauritius with his family. And suddenly it makes sense to me how history is repeating itself with me moving away from home, just like my mom did all those years ago. Logically I have always said that Rob and I decided to take a job in Ireland because it offered us a new adventure and reason to travel. But now that I look at it more spiritually, there is a definite greater reason why Rob and I were called to move to Ireland.
I find the astrology of place incredibly soul affirming, romantic and inspiring – there are so many more places I want to travel now that I am learning more about myself, my partner and now we can start to explore parts of the world that would be good for our child too.
Your Own Unique Astrology of Place Chart
I guess its my Aquarius Sun, Pisces Moon that really felt called to this business, I want to be able to read people’s charts and tell them the story of of their life, inspire them to travel and explore what kinds of places they might be called to journey to. You don’t have to have travelled far or even at all to harness these energies in your every day life. Just by wearing colours, eating food, listening to music, even making friends/connections with people who live there can help harness and benefit from those energies for you!
Have you ever visited a place and instantly feel excited? Ever visited a place and swore you would never go back? Ever had an ache in your heart at how desperate you are to go to a place you have never been to before and when you think about, it instantly makes you excited, lighter, uplifted? That’s what astrology of place, and that’s why I think its a great tool for expats to explore! Imagine knowing before you move countries, what living at that place could be like for you? Besides all the research and planning that goes along with moving to a foreign country, why not explore your astrology with this new home too?
