More Locational Astrology: An Ice-y reception may not be a bad reception…

Not too long ago, I lodged a few columns here about Locational Astrology.  This is a field of astrological analysis based on the idea that a person’s birth chart can shed light not only on what that person is like internally, but also on how the world external to them might offer them certain very individualized opportunities.  And just as our own internal traits can be either helpful or challenging to us as we make our ways through the world, so, too, can these external circumstances greet us like either a welcoming host throwing a grand party, or like a rude, battle-scarred bouncer roughly denying us entry into an otherwise happening-looking nightclub.  The trick, then, is to study your own Locational Astrology map, and start to get a feel for which parts of the globe will work toward furthering your agenda with you, versus which ones will be more interested in stomping you and your agenda into the ground…

I’ve been studying my own such map off and on with some intensity over the last several months, looking for the places I might visit in the world that would seem to offer the greatest natural potentials for personal growth and gain.  As is so often the case with these maps, a lot of the greatest convergences of big Lines of Power that would, in theory, offer me major boosts in multiple areas of life, only occur in places I’ll never realistically be able to reach.  For instance, one huge such convergence happens in my map so far south in the Atlantic Ocean that by the time I got there, I’d almost be heading back north up the other side of the world.  Also, they don’t make thermal long-johns that are thermal enough to help us humans withstand the kinds of subzero temperatures we’d be talking about there (not to mention the fact that there’s no landmass anywhere in sight of this convergence — just icy cold waters as far as the eyes could see…).  I have another strong convergence in the middle of the Pacific.  Maybe my most spectacular such convergence occurs near the White Sea in Russia — more attainable than that Antarctic one I mentioned, but still not exactly like throwing some bags in the trunk of my car and rolling into a convenient Motel 6 after a few hours’ drive…

But other places here and there do not only offer me tantalizing prospects for experiencing the convergences of mighty Lines of Power; they’re also actually places I might realistically get to without cartoonish trials and tribulations.  For example, if I wanted to visit the northeastern parts of South America or some of the lands in southeastern Africa, I might find myself straddling a few such major convergences.  A few more big lines converge for me not too horrendously far from where I live now, down in Mexico (albeit a kind of trackless and unsettled part of Mexico, all things considered).

Probably the two most intriguing places that are currently calling to me, though, while wildly different in culture and location, are Indonesia and Iceland.  No less than four major lines run through Indonesia for me, two of which hit their zenith points there — these are the points where a line’s intensity for a person hits its absolute peak.  And in relatively tiny Iceland, three similar lines congregate, which, for me, means they might all but light up the island for me with astrological might!  And while these places are both almost infinitely more approachable than some godforsaken coordinates within shouting distance of the South Pole, getting to them would still be no small undertaking for me, and booking such a venture isn’t something I’d do without going through some pretty exhaustive research first.

But every now and then, the Universe offers up a helping hand.  As if prodding me back toward making some kind of real decision on this, one of my usual internet haunts today offered up the following video, a collection of time-lapse nature imagery all shot in Iceland.  Setting aside my usual aversion to cold temperatures, this piece otherwise makes me want to not just visit Iceland, but to maybe go ahead and marry it and move in with it.  While you enjoy it, I may need to go hunt up anything similar showcasing Indonesia, just to be fair…  The Iceland nature video can be seen here
