Astrocartography lines are based on your natal birth chart, they
reveal your relationship to the earth. At the moment of your birth,
the planets in the heavens were rising, or setting, in relation
to where you were born.
If you were born at the same time at a different location on
earth, you would have the same planets in the same signs, but
they would be in different houses and the emphasis on ‘rising’
and ‘descending’ planets would change, and others
would become more influential in your personality and potential
If you travel, or choose to reside in other cities or countries,
your chart is ‘relocated’, and changes accordingly.
Correspondingly, the dynamics of your chart alters from that of
your natal birth chart positions.
For example: Going to live on a ‘Sun Line’, you raise
your potential for creativity, self projection, increased vitality,
uniqueness. Women living on Sun lines, meet men who have a strong
attraction for them.
Another way of applying astrocartography lines is to have association
with people, the culture, information or products, who/which come

- Since everything that affected our earliest ancestors
seemed to come from the heavens – the sun which controlled
the seasons, light, rain, wind, snow, thunder and lightning, the
moon affecting the tides etc. – it is not difficult to understand
primitive man’s passionate curiosity about the heavens.
- As man continued to observe, he associated certain
properties or attributes with the planets and stars relationships
to each other, properties which seemed to exert a lasting influence
on the person born under them.
- Although Astrology was developed independently,
at different times and in different cultures, the association
between the properties of certain planets and the Gods they were
named for, were very nearly identical – Mars ruling strength,
action, war, violence, sex… Jupiter ruling religion, belief,
philosophy, law, Venus ruling love, marriage, relationships, creativeness,
- Interestingly, over a period of several thousand
years, Astrologers have never attempted to modify or change the
properties or values traditionally used in the charts. When methods
are universally accepted, without question by many thousands of
practitioners over many thousands of years it would indicate that
they must work.
- Astrological symbology can be found in ancient
Egyptian mythology and Egyptian Astrological charts have been
accurately dated to 4240 BC.
- Astrology has been studied by the great philosophers
such as Pythagoras, Aristotle and Hippocrates, later, in the middle
ages, the Astrologers were usually Doctors and Physicians. During
the renaissance most of the great minds studied Astrology: Cardan,

the degree of the Zodiac that is at the highest point above the
- From these ‘angles’ the sings and degrees
of the chart divisions (cusps of houses) are calculated.
- The Sun, Moon and planets are then placed in their
respective signs and houses.
- Finally the aspects (the geometric angles) as seen
from earth, between any planet and another planet or angle are
- The Natal chart is as individual and unique as
a fingerprint and describes in minute detail the potential of
the person it was erected for. Free will is still the deciding
factor regarding the way in which a person’s potential is
expressed. Even on those occasions when an event seems unavoidable,
Astrology can assist in preparing for it.

chronic difficult to diagnose illness.

- Astrology, as practised today, has merged more
with psychology in the last 30 years; it is far removed from Astrology,

structure and principles remain the same.
- What the early Priest-Astrologers perceived in
the planetary patterns to be the influence of God-like power,
the Astrologer of today associates with drives and impulses rooted
in the subconscious mind of his/her client, reflected in disposition,
emotional response, general behaviour and early childhood conditioning.
