Home is the most important place. It is where you live with your family or alone. It is a haven from the world and where you share memories with friends and loved ones. It is where you enjoy relaxing times with your pets, and for some it is where you work.
There are three desirable attributes that people seek when choosing a place to live their lives and bring up their family.
People want to live in a town that offers talent, tolerance and technology and find somewhere to settle that suits their needs.
Why People Move
People move from one city to another for many reasons.
Moving for work
People move from one place to another usually for work. They find a better job and go.
They relocate from the country into the town.
Once in the town they may move to the city and then then move to bigger cities which can pay more.
This motivation is changing as technology improves and we seen the upsurgence of the modern day nomad working in the gig economy.
The reasons families emigrate from their home country is typically for economic or political reasons. But it can be for work.
Moving for family
Older family members will also move to be near their children or grandchildren.
One client of mine has three grown up children but she chooses to live near the daughter who has kids of her own, or the grandchildren. This is a huge draw.
Granny (and grandpa) bring their time, energy and financial support to the next generation of the family, People move to the place where their kids and the grandkids live.
Three Things to Look for in Your New City
You may not have much choice on the city you move to. If your spouse is offered a great paying job transfer or takes an offer in a new city you’ll probably have to go.
But if you have a choice then consider things carefully.
A city with talent is shown where there are new emerging companies which attract agile and innovative minds. This will percolate down into the city and suburbs in general.
These places usually have universities of colleges teaching the arts, music and computer coding.
High speed internet is a given and everyone is seemingly engaged in creative pursuits.
A city that encourages talent will have simple leisure activities like places to rent a bike in the city or trails for hiking at weekends to attract a healthy lifestyle.
Discovering tolerance in a city can be as easy as seeing the visible minorities being represented in the diverse faces of the crowds on the streets
There will be full access everywhere and facilities for those with physical disabilities.
Tolerance is shown by a multitude of religious buildings that cater to every faith where everyone can worship in their own way.
There will be acceptance of LGBT creative expression in art, design and entertainment.
As you walk the streets, travel on the busses and trains, and sit in the sidewalk cafes you will hear many languages other than English. Not just one other official language but a selection of languages that you don’t recognise.
Tolerance is shown through contraception being available for those who choose.
Tolerance is about protecting children and minors but allowing adults to make their own lifestyle choices.
Tolerance is about accepting others as they are without forcing your view onto them and they in turn not trying to change you. It is shown as respect for people of the human race without prejudice.
The upswing of computers, cell phones and general technology is a powerful attraction for most western people.
You do want high speed internet with 24/7 availability so you can search the web without censorship.
Places that have strong internet and information technology innovation will be home to many small to medium sized computer businesses. Look for advertised social and community meetings for coders and tech people as an indication of a thriving technology city.
Notice if there are multiple phone companies and internet service providers. Find out if there is intelligence built into new buildings (known as smart buildings) being erected in the city core.
Older residential buildings with no wifi capabilities are a sign of a lack of technology and the expectation of a lack by the people. These places will require extensive modernisation to bring the technology up-to-date.
Your “Immersion Weekend”
Not sure if a city is for you? Visit for your prospective city for a weekend.
This is not a fact-finding mission, you did that before you chose the place online back at home.
This is an “immersion weekend”.
From the moment you arrive look, listen and smell the city. Talk to everyone, the cab driver, the hotel desk clerk and real people who live and work there already. Find out why they stay.
Ask them what they do at the weekends (and not just the standard tourist spots because you know them already from your at home research), but where the locals shop, eat and relax.
If you thinking of moving and need some advice on where is the best place for you to live, or you want some insights into a new city before you make a move, why not think about a personalised relocation astrology report?
You have a birth chart that is set for the place you were born and this is your natal chart and stays with you forever.
But, every time you move from where you were born there is a new chart to be calculated and this is your relocation chart for that place. Every place will have a new chart for you.
Knowing what your location chart says and whether it integrates well with your natal chart (and therefore if you thrive and fare well in that place or not) is the skill of relocation astrology.
In working with relocation charts many factors are taken into account.
Relocation astrology can play into your decisions if you have moved or are thinking of moving across the country or around the world.
