Though we most often associate astrology with chronology, what the future holds, and so on, the energy of our location also can be effectively interpreted through astrology. In many cases, the stars can tell us much about a new location, or a trip or even where to network with people.
You can shift the rising sign influence in your own life, for example by relocating one or two time zones to the west. In this case you may enjoy the influence of the previous rising sign. If you move one or two time zones to the east, the benefits of the rising sign will similarly follow suit. The house that defines partners and mates (opposite the new rising sign) is also affected.
Here’s a real life example. A woman born in Kansas City with Virgo rising moved to Los Angeles where she had Leo rising. There she lost 25 pounds and got in to show business (Leo) and aviation (Aquarius), because on the west coast these became her rising and partnership signs. In fact, she ended up marrying someone with an Aquarius rising. The changes can be this drastic.
