What are the rules to look for Foreign Travel and Foreign Settlement in a horoscope?
In the olden days, Foreign Travel and Settlement were considered a curse, as the person had to leave his/her motherland, and specially that the bad situations led him to travel to unknown land or place. But now, it is considered as a boon or a dream come true in the society. Mostly, people are very keen to know whether they will travel abroad or not.
Astrology helps to know or predict whether the wheel of destiny has abroad travel plans for the native.
People might travel abroad for multiple purposes. A person can travel for his/her master studies, work purpose, business, marriage, trip etc.
Let us understand, few important rules and combinations for foreign travel and settlement.
If the lords of the 1st, 4th, 7th, 10th, 6th, 2nd or 11th houses are placed in the 12th house then foreign travel or foreign settlement could be seen.
If the lords of the 1st, 4th, 7th, 10th, 6th, 2nd or 11th houses are 12 houses away from his house itself then foreign travel or foreign settlement could be seen.
Similar to 12th house, 9th house is also considered for checking for foreign travel as this house is the house of long distance travel. If any of the above mentioned house lords are placed in 9th house then, we can predict that the person will go to abroad for higher education or as part of excursion. The 9th house is also the house of higher education.
The above rules or combinations are to be checked to know the purpose of the travel in the relative divisional charts as part of the analysis. If you consider the house lords of 1st, 4th, and 7th for foreign settlement then you should check in Navamsha- D9 divisional chart as those house lords denotes the personal growth, native’s life direction, partnership or life partner etc. Whereas 10th, 6th, 2nd, 11th house lords are seen as part of your career so the Dashamsha D10 chart has to be analyzed specially.
Upachaya Houses: The houses 10th, 6th and 11th all are Upachaya houses or the houses of growth. If you have identified certain combinations for foreign travel or settlement connected to these houses then the opportunities will come to your life late.
If 9th and 12th lords are placed in any of the 7 houses i.e. 1st, 4th, 7th, 10th, 6th, 2nd and 11th houses, then the foreign opportunities will come to you. Totally, foreign exposure is based on the house where it is placed.
If the Rahu-Ketu axis comes in 3-9 or vice versa indicates lot of foreign travels, 4-10 or vice versa then the foreign settlement for the purpose of career and 5-11 or vice versa another indication of some one is making money in foreign currency.
If in the birth chart the moon is placed in 12th house then indicates the native finds peace of mind in isolation. This is the simplest rule for identifying for foreign travel or settlement.
Some more combinations for traveling abroad for the purpose of education rules are :
The placement of the planet Jupiter in the 1st house or in the 9th house.
The planets like Jupiter or Rahu are placed in the sign of Sagittarius also indicates foreign travel for the purpose of education.
Few other rules for the foreign settlement are:
If the 2nd or the 4th houses or the lord of the 2nd or 4th houses are afflicted by functional malefic or afflicted by Saturn, Rahu and Ketu together matches with any of the above rules then chances are more for the foreign travel or settlement.
If the combination of Saturn and Rahu is present in the 12th house or Rahu is placed in 2nd, 4th, 12th or 7th house, then this placement also indicates foreign travel or foreign settlement.
1st Lord, Moon or SUN, out these three, if any of the two are anywhere related to SPCA means stellar, positional, conjunction or aspect the 6th,8th,12 lords or these Bhavas or all with Rahu and Ketu then foreign travel is predicted.
In the D60 Chart, the Lagna lord occupying the 7th Bhava or connected with 7th lord with an aspect of natural benefic planet and also if the 4th lord is afflicted by Rahu in this chart usually brings overseas travel or potential to settle in foreign land.
The 9th house is long distance travel. 3rd house indicates short duration distance travel and the 12th house is completely unknown having full of difficulties- the foreign land. When these three come together, foreign settlement is predicted.
If the 4th lord is retrograded then it shows that the person will travel to abroad but comes back but no foreign settlement until unless his birth chart satisfies more above defined combinations.
In the Ashtakavarga, analyse the 12th lord contribution to Lagna and also the Lagna lord contribution to 12th Bhava. This analysis shows how much they are interested in each other. And then check the purpose of traveling.
Note: Why 12th house is considered more for foreign settlement?
The 12th house is the house of isolation where a person will be isolated from his family and friends. The foreign place is the place where you will come across completely different food, customs, and cloths totally, where one feel uncomfortable or feeling like lost in that place.
The Characteristics of Signs that make a difference in the analysis on Foreign Travel and Settlement:
Movable Sign or Chara Rasi (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn): These signs and the Planets that are placed in these signs, give a changing tendency to the native like changing of residence, changing of job, changing of country etc.
Fixed Signs or Sthira Rashi (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius): As name indicates, these signs and the Planets that are placed in these signs, give a tendency to stick to particular place. So those who have more planets in Fixed signs, they do not change their residence or job too much. Going abroad means change of country or change of residence. So planets in fixed sign block the chances of going abroad.
Dual Sign or Dviswabhava Rashi (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces): can give short term foreign travel. Like if you have multiple planets in Dual sign you may go to abroad frequently but for very short duration.
Similarly, the Watery Signs like Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are very important for traveling abroad. For the foreign travel we need to cross seas. Hence, the watery signs are very much important. Cancer is both Movable and Watery sign. More over it is the natural 4th house of the zodiac. So it has special importance for foreign travel in astrology.
Timing of Travel abroad in astrology
Dasha-Antardasha of the houses: 1st, afflicted 2nd or 4th houses, 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th or the planets that are connected with these houses indicates Foreign Travel and Settlement.
Specially, if the Antar Dasha is showing 3-9 -12 combinations then trip might happen.
Dasha of Rahu is very special for foreign travel in astrology as Rahu is the Significator of foreign. If Rahu is well placed, it can give Foreign Travel in its Dasha. It can give foreign things but it cannot guarantee satisfaction. When Rahu is conjunct with 7th lord, 8th lord, 9th lord or 12th lord, it can indicate foreign travel in astrology. Rahu in Lagna or 7th can also give abroad travel.
Finally, the transition of planets will reveal the period of travelling.
