Astrology and relocation –  can the stars predict your perfect location?

Deciding where to live is an extremely important consideration, especially if you are considering moving abroad. Which is why it might surprise you to hear that many people choose to relocate according to their element in astrology, which is based on the signs of the zodiac.

Whilst some aspiring expats crave a warmer climate, a relaxed way of life and are more than happy to compromise an additional bedroom, bathroom or even swimming pool when they move overseas, other people do not take any of this into consideration. Some relocators base their move on a relocation chart in order to discover the locations which best suit their zodiac. To find out the link between astrology and relocation, and potentially find out where you should live, read on below!

Relocation Astrology – What is it?

Many people question whether relocation astrology is real or not. Ultimately it’s up to you to decide whether to believe that relocation astrology really can help identify where in the world you should be. Astrocartography techniques, however, can provide a fresh perspective on how you interact with the world and help identify which directions may be most suited to you based on your star sign. For believers of the zodiac, relocation astrology is used to help make the right life changing decisions.

Fire Signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius)

Traditionally associated with the white spirit, fire sign people often want to be in the centre of action in big cities which never sleep such as Manhattan, Paris and Madrid. Manhattan, for example, boasts the ultimate fast-pace urban living that Aries, Leos and Sagittarius’ thrive living amongst. Similarly, the large Spanish city of Madrid combines both the new and old and offers adventure, a hot climate and late-night fun. Due to the fact that fire signs like to move, each of these bustling cities offer great travel access to new areas and other cities that they may not have considered visiting before.

Earth Signs (Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo)

Unlike fire signs that enjoy living in the centre of large tourist-filled cities, earth signs seek places that offer lots of green, feral terrain to explore. Earth sign individuals are much better suited to living in areas which are considered to be off the beaten track for expats, such as Prague and Venice. Both places offer inspiring architecture, famous bridges and a rich history. And most importantly, are the perfect places for earth signs due to the many opportunities to explore, as well as the welcoming and easy culture.

Air Signs (Libra, Aquarius and Gemini)

Air signs thrive in cultural places that boast scenic views year round. Libra, Aquarius and Gemini are also often drawn to lively areas where great ideas are born and refined, such as San Francisco. San Francisco is an amazing place to live and the perfect choice for air signs who want outdoor space, adventure and variety. Not only does San Francisco and neighbouring Silicon Valley offer unmissable career opportunities, but the outdoor lifestyle is difficult to replicate anywhere else in the world, offering both variety and freedom.

Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces)

Water signs are attracted to water ways and areas located close to the sea or rivers, such as coastal towns, islands and hidden bays. Water signs tend to go by how they feel and are very much the most independent of the bunch, despite being pulled by personal connections. As a result of this, Barcelona is often a popular choice for the water sign, as it boasts outstanding sandy beaches (and of course, the sea), excellent culture, architecture and plenty of opportunities for work.
