Planets That are important for Foreign settlement in Astrology

There are four main planets which helps a person to travel abroad or going out of own country-Rahu/Ketu, Moon, Saturn, Venus. We have to see these 4 planets and their dignities and connection with proper houses in Horoscope for going abroad.

Rahu is the Most important planet for travel abroad. If Rahu is well placed, it can give Foreign Travel in its Dasha. It can give foreign things but it can not 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 travel abroad.

Moon being the natural 4th Lord, Moon is also equally important when judging Foreign settlement in astrology. According to classics when Moon is placed in Kendra(1,4,7,10) the person can travel a lot within country as well as outside of country. Moon in Watery sign specially when conjunct with Rahu can give foreign travel in astrology. Moon in 8th, 9th or 12th, specially exalted Moon in 12th can indicate foreign settlement in astrology.

If Mercury is placed in 4th, the individual changes his residence frequently and travel lot of places. The result will be more prominent if Mercury is placed in Movable signs.

We have to see Few Nakshatras also like Ashwini Nakshatra, Bharani Nakshatra, Ardra nakshatra, Swati Nakshatra, Pussya Nakshatra, Hasta Nakshatra etc while judging the foreign travel in astrology. Moon or Rahu in these Nakshatra will increase the chance of going abroad.

The Houses in Horoscope which are most important for Foreign Travel in astrology

In earlier days, It was seen as a Curse to Leave own country and to go to a foreign country. But with time this curse has turned into Blessing. The Main house for Foreign journey is 12, 9 and Ascendant or Lagna.

12th house is the Foreign land. So This is the Most important House for Foreign settlement in astrology. If Moon is placed in 12th house along with Venus, this is a indication of Foreign Travel in astrology. If Rahu also Joins this conjunction, it becomes a very strong indication of foreign journey. if there is planet like Saturn in 12th house, the individual will have a strong inclination towards foreign country. 9th House Signify fortune, Luck, Long Journeys or long distance travel etc. So this is another important house for foreign travel in astrology. When 9th Lord is placed in 12th house or Vice versa,it indicates that your Fortune is in Foreign land. A group of Planet like 4 or 5 planet in 9th house of 12th house is a strong indication towards foreign travel in astrology.

The Next important house is Lagna or Ascendant. Lagna is the self. Without the approval of Lagna nothing can happen in a Horoscope. So if Lagna lord makes a relation with 12th lord or Lagna Lord sits in the 12th house, it is a strong indication of foreign travel in astrology. If this relations happen in Watery sign Like cancer, Pisces etc or Movable signs like Libra or Capricorn the chances is very high.

In a nutshell we have to see Conjunction, aspect, Exchange between Lagna Lord, 9th Lord and 12th Lord. If these relations involves watery signs or Movable signs, the indications are strong.  The more and strong the relation will be, the more will be the chances of foreign settlement in astrology.

But there is another important house which we have to Look and without the indication from this house traveling abroad is not possible. 4th House is the Home Land or own country. So any Affliction to 4th House or 4th Lord can give Foreign settlement. If the 4th house is Placed in 6th, 8th or 12th and 4th Lord is equally afflicted and there is relation between 9th and 12th house or their Lords, we can predict that there is high chance of foreign settlement in astrology. If there is planets Like Rahu/Ketu, sun or saturn in 4th house, the chance of Going abroad in astrology increases.

when the 4th house or the Lord is not afflicted or weak, the person can not leave his Own country. If there is relation between 9th or 12th but 4th house is very strong, chances for foreign journey will come but the native will not be able to go due some reason. If the 4th house is strong and connected with 5th and 10th house, the person will get good opportunity in own country and do not feel the need to go to abroad.

The are two more houses which also needs some attention. The 7th house and the 3rd house. 7th House also Deals with Foreign Travel. When 7th house is involved with 12th or Planets like Rahu/Ketu there can be Foreign journey due to Business purpose or Business Trip.

3rd House shows short Journeys or short travels. It is not directly connected with foreign travel always but it gives a tendency or inclination towards travel. If there is Planets Like Moon or Ketu is in 3rd house, the likes to travel a lot. If the 3rd Lord makes a relation with 12th lord and 9th lord by aspect, conjunction or Exchange it is strong Yoga for foreign Travel.

One thing we must remember that there is a difference between Foreign travel and Foreign Settlement. For Foreign Travel relation between 3rd, 7th, Lagna, and 9th in a watery or Movable sign is sufficient but foreign settlement in astrology can not happen without the involvement of 12th house or 12th lord.

But we must remember Jupiter should not aspect these combination. Jupiter aspect will block the chance of going abroad.

Great Luck In Foreign Countries

The Grass is always green in other side of the Road. But it is not always true.  Lets see which planetary combination or yogas give beneficial result in foreign country.

The 11th house is the financial gain, and so if a person has the 11th house lord placed in the 6th house, the person has great luck to go abroad and work in foreign countries. We should not forget about 11th House from Arudha Lagna also. Arudha Lagna is our Maya or how other people see us. So quite often if you go to abroad people think you as a wealthy and rich person. So your 11th house from AL should be very strong for getting good fortune in Foreign countries.

If you have the 11th house lord in the 12th house you will have friends abroad.

If your Lagna lord or Ascendant lord is in the 7th house you will constantly travel abroad for your business purpose or for work.

In case you have few of the above mentioned Yogas, you can be lucky during foreign travel in astrology.

But if Malefic Planets like Rahu, saturn, Mars occupy the 12th house in Horoscope, though you will be able to go abroad but you will not enjoy the stay there. If Rahu is placed in 12th house, it is a strongest indication of working abroad, but it will be full of stress.

If Some one is having 4th lord conjunct with 5th lord and with Lagna lord and 4th house has lot of benefic aspect, such person will not be interested in going abroad. He will get lot of opportunity in his home land.

There are specific periods of time (ranging from months to years) in which a person has a peak time in foreign countries. After the ruling periods (dasha) of such planets end, your stay abroad will end and you will come back to your home country and will have to start all over again in your homeland. But by doing remedies you can prevent such things to a great extent.

Dasha of the connected planets can take them to foreign land.

When 7th house and its lord is connected with 9th house and 12th house as well as with their Lord there is chance of going to abroad after marriage. 4th house should be afflicted. Rahu and Significator of marriage Venus also plays an important role in this case of foreign travel in astrology after marriage. 8th house also to be considered and if it is a Love marriage, we have to include 5th house also. Venus is connected with 12th house or 8th house and Rahu in Rashi chart and Navamsa Chart (D9) this is a strong Indication of Foreign settlement after marriage astrology.

Some Specific Rule exclusively for foreign Settlement in astrology

As we told earlier that there is a difference between Foreign travel and foreign settlement. For Foreign settlement in astrology the role of 12th house and 4th house is most vital. In a most simple words i would like to say that a strong 12th house and a weak 4th house is needed for foreign settlement in astrology.

As it involves transfer of residence, the 4th lord must have affliction from two or more malefic planets like Rahu/Ketu or Saturn or sun etc. We have to check the chartuthamsa or D4 chart also and should see the condition of 4th house and 12th house and their lord. Generally Rahu Dasha is most effective for foreign travel in astrology as rahu is the Mlechha Karaka or Foregn planet. Generally if we see a connection between the house or Lords of 12-9-8-6 in a movable or watery sign, we can predict that there is high chance of foreign settlement in astrology.
