Zodiac Signs And Travel
The persons whose Ascendant falls in Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn like to travel extensively. Such natives like some activity of any sort all the while and they cannot afford to be idle. These signs are cardinal signs or movable signs.
Persons with fixed signs such as Leo, Scorpio, Taurus and Aquarius seldom feel any inclination to move from one place to another. These signs are of fixed nature. But when such persons decide to go out, they need a well planned, organized program with all the arrangements made in advance.
Not certainly either way can be indicated in respect of persons with Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces Ascendants which are mutable signs, but usually, they prove to be good companions when on journey. Pilgrimages and Astrology Jupiter, if combined with or aspected by the 10th lord, leads one to acts of piety. If the 7th, 5th, 9th, 10th lords and Jupiter combine in a watery sign, the native has dips in the sacred rivers. The dasa of the 4th lord gives pilgrimages to many holy spots. If malefics occupy the 10th and 4th houses from lagna, the native dies during his pilgrimages to a sacred shrine. If the lord of the 9th and 10th houses combine, the native goes on a long pilgrimage. .If benefics aspect the 9th house and 9th lord occupies a trine or quadrant or the 11th house the native goes on a big pilgrimage. If the 9th lord from the moon is in a Kendra, then also the native goes to many holy spots.
Travel Purposes as defined in Astrology
If the 10th house or its lord is involved, then the native may go abroad for pursuing a career. Involvement of the 5th or the 9th house indicates higher studies as the reason. If the 11th or the 2nd house is involved, the native stands to gain wealth from foreign travel. Involvement of the 6th house with a weak lagna indicates that the native may go abroad for medical reasons. If the 7th house and the Sun are involved, the native may go abroad representing the government. If the 7th house and Venus are involved, the native may either go abroad after marriage or it may take place when he is abroad. Involvement of a strong Venus indicates overseas performance as an artiste. The 12th house along with well placed Jupiter and Saturn indicates a spiritual mission. If Jupiter and Mercury are involved, the reasons may be education, training, research etc.
Success of Travel
Squares and oppositions between your travel planet and other planets indicate that energy may be blocked and travel would not be that fruitful, while sextiles and trines symbolize flowing energy. Conjunctions can vary in effect depending on the nature of the two planets involved. Mars and Saturn when involved together mess up the safety harness of your travel. But the Sun and Venus or Mercury and Jupiter are good conjunctions for travel.
Astrology- Sea Voyage
Saturn afflicting the horary chart of the sea travel indicates the possibility of drowning or the vessel leaking, being split or run aground.
Mars afflicting the chart suggests great danger and damage to the ship.
Mars on the Mid- heaven, in signs which indicate the upper part of the ship, indicates the ship may be burnt by fire, thunder, lightning.
Saturn on the Mid-heaven suggests problems with the sails, difficult winds or leaks.
Choosing an Apt Departure Time
Leaving under a void-of-course Moon for a travel means you are likely to be subjected to changes and adjustments in your plans. Unless urgent don't pick a time to leave when the Moon is void-of-course. If possible, pick a time when the Moon is making a favorable aspect with another planet. This will insure that you'll get to where you're going, and get back to where you left off.
