Ask Real Astrologers: When Can I Make a Move?

This week’s question comes from Zana in Bosnia:

I would like to go somewhere and find a job but don’t know where to start. I am thinking to come back to [the U.S.], if I sell my condo then I will have money to start. If you could see in my chart what is going on with selling that condo, that would be nice. We got an offer three months ago and since then we are waiting.

Aquarius expounds . . .

Pat’s response:

Zana, when it comes to real estate questions, we look for transits to the fourth house, which rules home and family, and to the eighth house, which rules income from sources other than what you earn on the job. Real estate profits fall in this sector.

Saturn, the planet of limitation, currently is moving through your fourth house, suggesting that you may be “stuck” at home, which may be hindering your attempts to find a job. However, with Uranus opposite Saturn in your tenth house of career, it’s possible that you may find a sudden opportunity soon. Uranus currently is retrograde, but he returns direct on December 1. That’s not so far away.

At the same time, we are in a series of eclipses that is affecting your eighth house, along with your second house, which concerns earned income. There is a solar eclipse on Jan. 15, 2010, in your eighth house that could signal some real estate income, although that is not the only potential outcome of that eclipse.

Since you are talking about relocating to a new country, we also can look to the ninth house, which is associated with long-distance travel. Neptune, Chiron, and Jupiter are stacked up in this area of chart. Of the three, Jupiter is the best indicator of expansion and good fortune. The Big Guy is retrograde right now, which lessens his beneficial influence, but you may get some leads on work or living arrangements after he returns direct on October 13.

Your chances for everything lining up look best around the first of the year. But of course we’ll keep our fingers crossed that it happens sooner.

Hang in there, and keep us posted!

By the way, Zana gets major points for following our instructions for submitting questions. She gave us full birth data, her current location, and a specific question. Even after our column last week, we continue to get questions with no birth data. We’re astrologers, not psychics!

Libra ponders . . .

Neith’s response:

Zana, my feeling is that Uranus transiting over your Moon, ruler of the fourth house, in the spring of next year will bring new direction and possible relocation. Uranus transits encourage us to do what is best for us as individuals, a good thing for those who tend to put the needs of others before their own, to their detriment.

Another celestial event coming up in December is Mars in Leo going retrograde for a couple of months. Mars will be going back and forth over your natal Uranus, triggering a square to Venus, ruler of your Sun in Taurus. You may want to keep in mind that you will be feeling much less patient with things than you usually do.

As the fourth Saturn-Uranus opposition grows closer in late March and April 2010, prepare to feel an increase in tension, because this one will exactly conjoin and oppose your Moon. Having several options as to what you want to do would be a good idea. Uranus is noted for last-minute changes due to unexpected events.

I know fixed-sign Sun people like you with lots of earth in their charts prefer to take their own sweet time and don’t like to be rushed! That’s why having a plan with many flexible options is extra important.

Good luck, Zana, and I wish you smooth transitions to your new home wherever that may be!
