About Astrology & Travel

Have you ever traveled somewhere and felt oddly uncomfortable (beyond battling nasty bugs and even nastier desk clerks)? Conversely, you've probably visited a strange destination and unaccountably felt at home.

With travel astrology you can look up a destination, read the analysis, then check your sun sign (and your mate’s, lover’s, friends’, kids’, business partners’) and see how they fit with your trip’s purpose: business, romance, family, recreation.

In addition to this forum for asking questions and discussing astrological issues as they relate to travel, I'm happy to draw up astrological charts and even itineraries upon request; simply email me.

Kat, very valid observations. But we can't simply look at a specific transit in a vacuum. Jupiter is in Aries---ruled by Mars. So yes, happy-go-lucky (a term I often use for Jupiter as it also brings both happiness and luck---when you don't overdo it) and adventure. Also rash, headstrong, impulsive. And it's in nasty aspect to Pluto in Saturn-ruled Capricorn. Jupe, governed by Sagittarius, also suggests travel, as well as higher education, philosophy, religion.... Looking at it in context, the possibility of religious conflict is increased. It's the hard aspects that concern me. And I'm not even getting into the other planets messing around in there...

As for Aquarius and gadgetry, absolutely. We've been seeing a natural progression since Uranus entered its own sign, the Water-Bearer, in 1995. That dovetails nicely with the first exponential usage of the Internet and cell phones. Neptune's 1998 entrance into Aquarius highlighted imagination in technology.

Second half the year should turn to more "Rabbit-y" affairs like food, culture, entertaining, travel when viewed in conjunction with Western influences.

Hi Jordan, thanks for your insights. I agree, it is very tricky business, all these past incarnations of evolving countries clashing with their current personalities. But still, getting the gist of planetary movement gives some food for thought. To me, aquarius is not just freedom loving, but in love with technology and gadgets. I see travel apps taking over the way we learn about destinations, as well as the networking of social media as in 'hey does anyone know a cool place to eat in such and such a neighborhood' - and bingo, 20 responses roll in. No longer do experts form our opinions but annonymous voices from the ether of the internet. Mars in Aquarius can also indicate spontaeous 'girl.friend' get aways to party in the hip cities around the world, or some technological advances in space travel. Of course, it can also indicate the failing of technology when adversely aspected. 

Jupiter moving into Aries, denotes, to me a bit of happy go lucky adventuring in obscure places (are there any left?) and extreme sports, which seem to be getting ever more beyond what seems humanely possible. But I also agree with you on the 'world stage' political connotations of this aspect configuration - the struggle against the old leaders, to bring in a more Aquarian and egalitarian flavour - hopefully the conservative forces will not rebound with a vengeance and become reborn as the proverbial wolf in sheepskins, promising renewal, but serving business as usual under a new guise. I can't comment on the Chinese dimension as I am woefully ignorant of the intricacies of Chinese astrology. Certainly the first half of the yearseems to be strongly under the influence of Mars, and I share your concern for Mars' more hm, well, uncouth behaviour. The second half of the year looks more of a mixed bag, with Neptune dipping his toes into the oceans of his own sign and Jupiter moving into Taurus - perhaps indicating a growing interest in food and wine trails and other pampering vacations of the wellness variation. Well, lets see what will come of it.

Hey Kat. This is difficult to answer for the reasons we discussed earlier. Mundane astrology is tricky biz, since we often don't know exact times and in many cases, we have competing charts (for example, I have three Japan charts from impeccable sources, based on different constitutions, and you could make a valid argument for each). So just as with individual forecasts, we'd apply transits and progressions to the destination's natal chart.

 

You will still see both February Western and Chinese horoscopes posted shortly. In both, I note the discord indicated by A) The plethora of planets in Militant Mars (in freedom-loving Aquarius), all forming tense aspects, abetted by Jupiter's entrance into Mars-ruled impulsive Aries and Saturn retro, explains the clashes and revolts we're seeing worldwide and B) The Rabbit/Cat, the sign of diplomacy, is under the Metal influence this year, which lends it a, well, steely edge. That, too, suggests skirmishes if not outright warfare---followed by treaties. Which makes for many "not hot" destinations. The outlook for the next few months is stay close to home...

So, astrologically speaking, which destinations will be hot, and not so hot this year?

Jordan, don't you think it is possible for the hospital to just put in an average time for all babies born that morning, especially if you were cesarean (as I understand)? I would test the chart very carefully for key transits and especially progressions. My birth time was given to me by my mother as 1:05am, but I found 1.20 more resonating. Not a huge difference, but still, it made difference enough to me.

Wow, so then I'll really have to get the actual time. The hunt is on.
Comment by Jordan Simon on October 15, 2010 at 6:25pm
Karul, the more accurate the better. Unfortunately, even parents aren't always right (my mom, who didn't opt for natural childbirth so presumably her head wasn't on straight, LOL) always swore I was born around 3:30-4am. My dad backed this up. When my chart was first read, I thought, wow, cool, 90% accurate. I later discovered my birth certificate, which read 6am. HUGE difference. 99%.
