What is Astrocartography?

If you’ve ever had to face the decision of figuring out where you should move or even simply travel where you will have the best opportunities for life or career success, then you will absolutely love to know about the amazing tool that is Astrocartography.

You may already know that your exact date, time, and location of birth has the power to unlock endless insights into your soul purpose and even your ideal career if you’ve been following along with me for any length of time, but did you know that your birth information is also a key that can unlock a treasure map of the best places for you to be in the world?

Astrocartography is the study of energetic influences and how they specifically apply to you based on your geographic location.Ā 

If you’ve been looking for a good place to live, travel, or even hold a retreat or go on a speaking tour for your career, then astrocartography is an amazing way to find out which areas are going to be best for you and which are best to be avoided. You can also use astrocartography to figure out how your current location has been affecting you.


Here is an example of what an astrocartography map may look like:


The red lines show where there is challenging energy and the green lines show where the energy is favorable. The yellow areas simply show how far out the energy of the line is likely to extend outward. Any areas that do not have red, green, or yellow covering them are considered neutral; not good or bad, they just are. These are areas where you will need to create your own opportunities for success, but like I said, this is not a negative or positive thing, and it can actually be quite calming (and/or boring, depending on how you look at it).


It can also be interesting to look at places you have already traveled to or lived and see how the energy was effecting you there.

For example, I remembered when I was on a road trip through Nebraska of all places that I suddenly had this amazing feeling of joy and unlimited possibilities pass over me. I was literally driving through flat, endless fields in the middle of nowhere at the time and I couldn’t understand what my deal was! For some crazy reason, I was incredibly excited about life more than I had ever felt, and no, it wasn’t because of caffeine. Later, I found out that I had been driving through my Jupiter line. Jupiter is the planet of joy, expansion, growth, prosperity, and good fortune. I don’t know if I could actually handle living in that head space all the time, but it sure opened my eyes to the accuracy of astrocartography.

I also used to live on the Big Island of Hawaii and that is where I learned most of what I know about astrology. My time living there was amazing, of course, and also incredibly challenging, but it ultimately gave me the life experiences that have allowed me to grow into the (way better) person I am today. Despite how beautiful it was living in paradise, it got to the point where I no longer knew if I should keep living there because so many things were going wrong all the time. Using astrocartography, I was able to see that where I was living was indeed very challenging for me because it was on a Venus square Rising Sign line which essentially meant that the energy there challenged me to give up part of who I was to get what I wanted. Challenges obviously help us grow, but I could see that this was a place where I would never stop facing insurmountable challenges in my life, and it was making me physically sick to the point where I actually had more than one near-death experience!

I’m NOT saying this to scare you, but to show you how helpful astrocartography can be in making super difficult life decisions. Eventually, I did choose to move back to my hometown of Minneapolis which is a neutral area for me, before eventually moving back to Hawaii (but on a different island). As soon as I got back, I remember feeling so much more peaceful and like all of the intensity in the air had been lifted. It was a huge relief!

The last story I want to share about my personal experience with astrocartography has to do with the Career Map. Everyone’s maps are completely different, but for me, there is only one super positive line in the U.S. for my career and it happens to be in San Jose, CA. This is a place I have never even been to, but time and time again, people from San Jose will get in touch to collaborate with me and tell me they’ve fallen in love with my work. At one point, I had 5 people in a row reach out to me, and when they ALL told me they were from San Jose, CA, it had gotten so ridiculous that I couldn’t help but laugh.

Astrocartography is really real, people! I have to admit I don’t quite understand exactly how it works or who in the world figured out that this is something we can even have the power to do (similarly to the question I often get asked of how in the world we even figured out how to use astrology in the first place), but I do know that it works and, time and time again, my clients also agree in the amazing power of both astrology and astrocartography as a tool for gaining insights to help us live the magical lives we dream of.
