Iy might be very surprising but Natal Chart changes along with its owner’s moving to other place than were born. When people move in the same neighborhood or even city, nothing really happens because coordinates remain the same as original ones.But when moving to another country, usually coordinates change in a way that an adjustment to the Natal Chart is needed.
How can a Natal Chart be changed?
Actually Natal Chart can not change. It remains the same throughout the whole life. But when moving, an adjustment to the Natal Chart has to be made so that a new chart is being drawn. this new chart won’t replace the old Natal one; it is only a new, additional chart to be taken into account when calculating personal transits and forecasts.
How to calculate your new Natal Chart
Calculating the new Natal Chart is easy. All you need to do is put the new coordinates instead of the old ones. If working with a making a chart program, just choose the new location instead of the old one. For example, I have moved from Israel to Snata Fe, NM so instead of putting Tel Aviv in the birth place field, I put Santa Fe.
You would also want to change your hour of birth. this is a bit more complicated – you need to substruct or add to the hour you were born in, according to the geographical relations between the place you had been born and the new place were you have moved to. For example, if time in Israel on my birth was 00:25 and I moved to Santa fe then i substract from my birth time 8 hours; because time gap between Israel and Santa Fe is -8. Make sure to take into account any saving time methods that were presence in your birth place during your birth.
How to read the new Natal Chart
Reading new Natal Chart is similar to reading the old chart, the original one, only here you read it in addition to the old one. usually the only thing that is being changed after the chart time ad place shift, is the Ascendant or AC (Rising Sign), and the position of planets in houses. That means that Any major or small planets aspecting you natal planets are still relevant when reading your own chart only now you also need to take into account any aspects being made to your new AC. Plus, since planets in houses have changed, the aspects affect also the new houses where plants are present, not only the old houes.
5 thoughts on “What happens to Natal Chart when moving Abroad”
I only lived in my birthplace for 1 month. Is the relocated chart the true version and the one I should consider? What aspects should I consider from the original chart?
Hi. It is a very good question. off course the natal chart does not become irrelevant. The “original” sun, moon, other personal spots on the chart as well as the natal chart ruler (please see my last article about rulers or ruling planets) – all remain influential in addition to aspects and spots appearing on the new relocation chart. As relevant and by issue I would suggest working with relocation charts especially with the new AC (rising sign) just like an actor wearing a new custom. Hope I am coherent please ask further if I wasn’t 🙂
Do you use the new relocation chart to calculate solar return or Secondary Progression
It is not a definite yes and not a definite no. For important and accurate predictions I would use both
No I use the primary chart
