"What is Astrocartography? This word simply means that we take the same information an astrologer uses to create birth charts and horoscopes – that is, a person's date, time and place of birth – and we use them to create world maps that are personal and unique, and useful in guiding us to our best destinations for jobs and money, health, family, love relationships, creative and spiritual paths, community, travel destinations, whatever matters most to us.
Finding Your Best Places: Using Astrocartography to Navigate Your Life is Dan Furst's long-awaited first ebook on today's hottest astrology topic, the exciting new art and science of Astrocartography.
Each astrocartography map has sets of colored lines that have planet symbols in triangles pointing up to the top of the map, or the bottom, or east or west. So the lines show us not only which planet energies are at work in each place, but in which direction they go: to the soul (up), the body (down), our individual goals (east) or relationships (west). The lines also form connections and crossings — just as the planets in our birth charts have meaningful, powerful angles of relationship — so we can easily tell which places in the world are energetically charged for us, whether for success or struggle, and which are neutral "rest areas."
Joint readings for couples, families and business teams are especially useful for identifying places that are most beneficial for living and working, and for finding important relationships. Astrocartographers often insist, in fact, on reading for both members of a committed couple, in order to highlight places that are good for them both, and avoid locations that are great for one partner, but challenging, at the very least, for the other.
Another crucial point is that astrocartography is not just for helping people find their best places to live and work, though this was the main question when Jim Lewis created his new system 40 years ago. Now second-generation astrocartographers often tell new clients: You Don't Have to Move! People who are quite happy where they are can still use their astrocartography lines to find the places that best favor them for finding employers, clients, colleagues, healers, publishers, investors and love partners.
Looking at our astrocartography maps as well as our birth charts can now tell us not only the conditions of timing that astrology has always explored, but also, for the first time, the conditions of SPACE as well. While astrologers have long used different ways of connecting zodiac signs with countries and cities, so that, for example, the very theatrical land of Italy may be called a "Leo country," it is only now that we can see, in precise detail, exactly which places on Earth really favor us, personally and individually, or may have important relationships for us.
There are profound spiritual implications to these locational matters as well, and we may find in time that our tendencies, interests, gifts and challenges may all be reflected in the astro-geography of the sky, and this is why we feel attracted to the spiritual traditions and practices of specific places, and why some places just mysteriously seem to keep calling us.
And what may be most important to many of us, is that astrocartography may show us what places are most important for the fulfilling of our Sacred Contracts, and the challenges and opportunities they offer for the pursuit of our spiritual goals, and our evolution toward enlightenment and freedom.
In the end, what matters is that astrocartography gets more popular every year. It's not just because we want to find our best places now in very fluid and unpredictable times, or because we're more mobile and globally connected that ever before in wider, more versatile networks of business, social contacts and bonds of love and spirit.
Astrocartography is hot now because it WORKS!"
