Astrology Signs for USA States & Cities

by Mark Dodich

Of course you know that you have an astrology chart for your birth, but did you know that states, cities, countries, and corporations have charts too? The incorporation date is used to establish the city, state or corporation as a legal entity. A birth chart is then cast, usually for noon of the legal date. Countries can be more difficult in that several dates can be valid depending upon a wide variety of factors ranging from revolutions to constitutional changes.

You can compare your natal chart to the chart of a state, city, country or corporation –just like you would do a romantic compatibility comparison- to better understand how you would relate to a city-state. Additionally, you can use your personal AstroCartoGraphy® or EARTHLINES™ consultation map to understand your personal power for an area.

Following is a listing of Sun signs for several countries, states, and cities. Be aware that some places will have more than one sun sign based upon differences in the data sources, political changes, and so forth. For example, Portland, Oregon has at least two charts because the city was moved from one location to another during its early days. Because of these common discrepancies in what is known as “mundane astrology,” the following data is provided to serve only as a general guide.

Not all cities are listed due to space considerations and/or lack of data. You can find the official date of birth of your city in the historical and/or legal records of your city records. Some places, like Hawaii which is ancient, will show only the characteristics of the state as a legal whole. In this example, you would be missing information such as when each island was official taken over by King Kamamaha, giving each island its own chart.

If you know your own Sun sign, Moon sign, and Ascendant sign, look to see how you compare to your home state or city. Sun represents leadership and basic life force. Moon represents the people, emotions, and public attitudes. As a general rule, AIR signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) are compatible with FIRE signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius). WATER signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are generally compatible with EARTH signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn).

If you are compatible with the planetary energy of a particular location, it is much easier to enjoy your trip. Perhaps this explains why you can travel to a place that everyone loves, and you just don’t feel in harmony. For example, John Kerry lost Ohio in his failed Presidential campaign. Ohio has its Sun in Pisces, which challenges Kerry’s Sagittarius Sun, and Ohio’s Moon sign is in Gemini, which provides opposition to Sagittarius. Pisces can represent enlightenment or illusion, and there certainly seemed to be some illusion working at his failed presidential bid in Ohio. On the other hand, Kerry found Massachusetts with Sun and Moon in “open to innovative ideas” Aquarius to be a favorable location for his ideals.

If your natal Sun, Moon, or Ascendant are compatible with the Sun and Moon of locations listed below, you might enjoy a journey to one of these places. Of course, there are a variety of variables including the need to look at your entire natal chart before making a decision, your personal power lines in a location (see EARTHLINES™ information below), and the current transiting cycles that are affecting your natal chart when you travel. (Note: there is a free astrology primer to help you understand the basics of astrology, download the pdf at www.astromark.us

Most of this information comes from these books. There are more cities and countries in:

“Horoscopes of the US States and Cities” by Carolyn Dodson

“The Book of World Horoscopes” by Nicholas Campion..

USA Cancer Sun, Aquarius Moon (Rising sign is most likely to be Virgo based upon historical reference; however, astrologers also use Sagittarius, Scorpio, Libra, and Gemini rising charts)

Washington DC 1791, Sun Pisces, Moon Cancer

(It is interesting to note in the book “The Secret Architecture of our Nation’s Capitol” by Ovason that astrology was used in setting the cornerstones of famous buildings like the White House. There is a strong suggestion based upon astrological symbols all over Washington DC that there is a strong Virgo emphasis. )

Information on your own personal power maps and how they work:

EARTHLINES™ Maps Consultation (AstroCartoGraphy®)

Locating Your Personal Power Zones on Planet Earth

Find your best places for Relocation, Travel, Romance, and Career

EARTHLINES™ Relocation Astrology gives you a tool that you will use for the rest of your life, even if you never leave home! Knowing your personal planetary action zones helps you to make life choices whether you are relocating, vacationing, seeking spiritual retreat, or doing business in other localities.

The maps require fairly accurate birth time, within 15 minutes is best. If you do not have your birth time, you can often order a copy of the “long form” of your birth certificate from the record holding department of the city or state where you were born. Be sure to ask for the complete detail of the birth rather than just the certificate because the certificate does not always contain the birth time.

The maps have vertical lines which are the major power lines and have an effective range of 300 miles east or west of the line. There are also subtle lines called “parans” which show the subtle energy difference of places approximately 100 miles north or south of each other. For example, it may occur that the same major power line (s) runs through both Portland, Oregon and San Francisco. The difference between these places would be seen in the different paran lines. Of course, you must take into consideration that San Francisco and Portland are very different in appearance, climate, and other exteranl factors.

The consultation looks at your power lines for the entire planet, and about 80% of the information will be good for the rest of your life. You can provide up to three locations that you would like even more detail on (although there is plenty of detail to begin with). Just keep in mind that there will not be much difference in places that are close together, like Washington DC and Baltimore. Illusions: Some people expect to find the one place on the planet that will give them everything. Of course, the only place that occurs is by travelling within. In terms of physical location, some power lines are better for career, others for relationships, and so forth.

Couples: Each person needs their own consultation. Power line maps are personal. Some couples match up to the same location, others do not. When you order your individual consultations at the same time, I offer an experimental map called a “composite.” I offer this additional map at no charge, but ask that you fill out a research form after you have travelled together to help me research the value of the map. The map shows power lines for the two of you operating as ONE. Accurate birth time is critical for this map.

Terms associated with Relocation Astrology

Mundane Astrology: Astrology is similar to the medical profession in that there are specialties within the larger field. A heart surgeon and a neurosurgeon are both medical doctors, but in different areas of specialization. Mundane astrology is a broadly defined topic that includes relocation, or locational, astrology. Mundane astrology deals with the astrological energy of countries, companies, world leaders, and world events (like the tsunami in SE Asia or the meaning of the next Mercury retrograde cycle for the greater collective of humanity.)

Relocation (Locational ) Astrology: This is the broadly defined topic within mundane astrology that studies personal power zones for individuals and companies on planet earth. AstroCartoGraphy® (ACG) or EARTHLINES™ are names for this service (just like Reiki and Yuen Energetics are names for different healing modalities.) AstroCartoGraphy® was commercially developed by Jim Lewis and shows known action zones for planets in your natal chart as mapped onto the earth. EARTHLINES™ is a trade name developed by Mark Dodich. It is a packaged service that includes ACG lines, moving lines called transits and progressions, Local Space, and more). The idea is that your natal chart is projected out onto the earth in known action zones of the chart. It is like what Hermetic philosophers would call “As above, so below.” You are projected out on a global level and certain energies are more powerful there than they might be somewhere else. The reason that accurate birth time is required is that this service uses the “angles” of the chart (Ascendant, MidHeaven, IC nadir, and Descendant)

Some terms used in relocation astrology:

Relocated chart: If you were born in New York and now live in San Francisco, your natal chart can be re-cast, or relocated, to pretend you were born in your new home. This does not replace your natal chart. It simply adds a differently flavored influence to your life experience. If you put on rose-colored glasses, it would not change what you see. What you see would simply be shaded differently. Generally speaking, you almost need to change time zones to change your chart to any significant degree.

Local Space Astrology: This is the locational astrology of movement. If you had your AstroCartoGraphy® chart done by a mail order service, you do not have this. There are a couple different ways to draw it. Mark Dodich uses a method that looks like the center of a bicycle wheel with numerous “spokes” going out in all directions. You use this map to pick a restaurant, locate personal services like a health club or tax advisor, or even to bop around Europe. The idea is that when you travel on lines that represent the energy you are creating, you are increasing the natural flow of energy that supports what you are doing.

For a picture of Local Space, go to www.astromark.us and click the index under EARTHLINES relocation astrology.

Location Transits and Progressions: The lines on your primary AstroCartoGraphy® or EARTHLINES™ maps (s) are good for life. Of secondary influence are these moving lines that show you temporary energy in a location. If you had to choose between a trip to Denver or a trip to New York, you could look at your transiting and progressing lines to see which energy supports what you wish to accomplish when you go there. A Venus line might be best for romance or artistic ventures, whereas a Mars line would be better for running a marathon. A transit map is generally good for a month, longer for outer planets like Neptune and shorter for quick planets like the moon.

Power Lines: On your ACG or EARTHLINES, these are the vertical and curved vertical lines on the map. They are good for life, and considered to be strong 300-350 miles from the line. They are moderate to weak from 350-700 miles away.

Paran Lines: These are horizontal lines of latitude that represent subtle blending energies of two planets or asteroids. ACG calls them “crossing lines.” The lines are considered to be valid anywhere from 80-150 miles north or south of the latitude where they are located. So, if you are looking for a good place for relationship and have a major relationship Power Line in Moscow but no desire to live in Russia, you could find subtle paran lines that support relationships in a country that you would like to live in.

Fixed Star Location Astrology: The ancients were more focused on the stars in astrology than the planets. There is a full explanation of this on the Fixed Star page at www.astromark.us There is a method of mapping well-researched stars and putting them onto a regional map (USA, Europe). Mark Dodich’s research suggests that the location of the fixed stars in your natal chart as well as on the maps are best understood by looking at your place in the larger collective. The stars help you go beyond your smaller issues of love, money, or that new car. They help you go beyond our local solar system to see the bigger picture in life. Although these maps are not a part of your EARTHLINES consultation, they can be purchased separately by mail order. See www.astromark.us

Mark F. Dodich

503-252-1558 mark@astromark.us www.astromark.us

Where is the best place for me to be? I want it all- romance, money, spiritual service, real chocolate with no calories, etc. Obviously, the answer is that you must go within to find that perfect place. Moving to different locations can give you a fresh perspective on life, it can help you get free of preconceived notions that others may have about you, and it can help you emphasize specific areas of your chart. However, you take your life lessons with you wherever you go. It is also important to be careful of making sweeping statements about particular power lines. While a Venus line may help you with your love and money, you must still work through any limiting beliefs about love and money. Going to a Venus line can amplify your need to work through those issues, but it will help you. You must also consider that if you have a gentle Venus line, but the Venus in your natal chart is harshly connected to death & destruction Pluto, then you are going to be required to release some belief or behavior when you go to that seemingly nice Venus line. Life is about spiritual growth and opening to the God within our Being. Picking the right location can help you open to certain aspects of your Divine Nature.

There are a variety of books on the topic of Relocation Astrology including:

The Psychology of AstroCartoGraphy by Jim Lewis and Kenneth Irving
