Two Articles On Astro*Carto*Graphy In "The Mountain Astrologer" Magazine

There are two articles on Astro*Carto*Graphy in the Oct/Nov 2006 issue of "The Mountain Astrologer" magazine.

The first article is called "How To Study Relocation" by Donna Cunningham. The article explains how the planetary lines change when there is a half-hour difference in the birth time, featuring three maps to show how the Sun MH and Saturn MH lines have moved to different locations. The article also features a comprehensive list of Relocation Bibliography and Resources. Listed are 18 books that have been written on relocational astrology and where to obtain them.

The second article is called "The Uses Of Astromapping In Astrology" by Martin Davis. This article features examples of using A*C*G and Local Space lines on the same map which is possible with the Solar Maps program. Where an A*C*G and Local Space line cross is known as a "bi-paran" or "destiny crossing". The article also features Cyclo*Carto*Graphy, the A*C*G relationship chart map and rectification with A*C*G.

This issue of "The Mountain Astrologer" can be ordered from:


In my opinion, The Mountain Astrologer is best English language astrology magazine available. It is a magazine that every astrologer should subscribe to.

May I say thanks for creating another source of information on locational astrology on-line (and there are not that many). I’m not a professional astrologer, just someone who has taken a keen interest over the years, especially in this area (I’ve an old Astrocartography map from 1984).

I’d also like to say how much I enjoyed, and continue to consult, your book, Where in the World with AstroCartoGraphy. It was your words, David, that alerted me to the usually neglected area of Right Ascension and I always use it now. It gave a totally new (and I believe accurate) picture of my own natal chart.

I wonder if I could ask a question? I’m now using Zet 8 Geo. It’s the first astrology software I’ve ever used. I’ve had no need to buy any software before (my interest has mainly been confined to books and the one or two free chart services that one can use now online) but I wanted to create my own local space lines. Which I have done successfully. But I’m now confused as to which buttons to click to create an accurate “astrocartography map” (I said I was an amateur).

Could I ask, using Zet 8 Geo, what you consider will give an accurate “map”? On the Map feature clicking on the “Asc/Dsc.Mc/Ic” lines, or using “Horizon & Meridian”, or a combination? I’ve also found that going onto the map after calculating the chart it is a different map again if one has used Ecliptical or Equatorial calculations.

I hope it is appropriate to pose this question here? But if not, thanks anyway for an interesting site with useful links.
