Change of Residence
In a horoscope, Fourth house represents our home sweet home. It also represents mother, tolerance, caring, family affections, our attachment to home, relatives, land, property etc. An astrologer can look at your 4th house and easily tell how strong the family lineage is for a person. It also represents our formal education.
12th from the 4th house represents the ‘Loss’ of all those areas I mentioned above. Loss does not always literally means “loss” “loss”, but some worries or change in those matters. So if you are heading for a residence change, it is looked at from the 3rd house. It really does not matter whether you look at the change of residence in the ‘loss’ format. For you it could be a pleasant change but for some others it may be a worry. In both the case, it is analysed from the 3rd house. we would also look at the 6th and 8th from the 4th house as these positions represents the Maraka for the 4th house matters.The change of residence could be a change between towns or states or even from one continent to another.
Remember, even during early 20th century, living away from own home, away from parents are considered to be a sin and a loss! so whether you are happy with the change or not, in Vedic terms it is still considered as a Loss :) and Vedic way of living is dated back to 2000 years BC, and that makes perfect sense when I say ‘Loss’ of house.
Now about the timing, the change of residence could come during the Maha Dasa or Sub Dasa period of the 3rd house lord. that is not the only condition, a malefic aspect over the 3rd house by a transit would also trigger a change of residence. But that does not always mean this would happen in all sub dasa period of the 3rd lord. If in the big picture of your destiny, a change of residence is needed, then this would manifest during the sub dasa or pratyantar dasa period of a Major maha Dasa or even by a malefic aspect. That is the key point here.
Interestingly, Looking at the Lagna, and the Atmakaraka planet, Vedic Astrology can really tell you which direction or area (region) of the country you would prosper in life and career matters. for example north of India, South of India OR even tell you the part of the Planet earth where you could have a successful Life compared to the place of birth.
Those professionals who longing for an on site or offshore projects :) would be interested to know when they could get an abroad chance, when they could relocate from one place to another? even a times the wife of a person would be looking for a family reunion as her husband has got a transfer to a distant location or vice versa. Vedic astrology has answer to all your day to day life issues. It is just that a learned astrologer should zoom into the are of interest and uncover the business around that area. One of the reason why I call Vedic astrology as a Guiding beam of Light! Of course we need this sort of light in the darkness!
That is all about Vedic Astrology and Change of residence.
