Today, many of us, especially students would love to travel abroad. Going to a foreign country and settling there has always been a dream for many and for students, it is a lifetime achievement to get a chance to study abroad. But in Vedic astrology, there are planets and certain combinations that can take a person to a foreign land even if he/she never wishes to go abroad. In ancient vedic stories, it is said that going to a foreign land was a big curse and people who had the combination for foreign settlement were seen to have been cursed by the gods for their sins.
However, today, it is no more a curse and it is actually really beneficial for people to move to a foreign land. Therefore, In this article, we will be discussing everything about foreign settlement and yogas for travelling abroad.
Planets that are responsible for foreign settlement.
In Vedic Astrology, there are four planets that have a huge impact on a person’s life with regards to travelling abroad or even permanent settlement in abroad. These planets are Rahu/Ketu, Moon, Venus and Saturn. These are the most important planets to check while we figure out if there is a yog for foreign settlement or travel or not.
The single most important planet that is responsible for permanent foreign settlement is Rahu. It is because Rahu denotes foreign things and foreign lands. Rahu itself is a foreign entity and it denotes electronics, industrial development and anything that goes against the social norms and values of the society. If Rahu is in the conjunction or connection with the 7th, 8th, 9th, 12th lord or house, it can directly represent foreign travel.
Moon signifies travel and even when you look at palmistry, the moon mount signifies the number of travels a person does in his or her lifetime. Moon is also very important while judging the yogas for foreign settlement. Moon in the 8th, 9th, 12th house can signify foreign travels and exalted Moon in the 12th house will make the person settle permanently in a foreign country.
Sun is another planet that has a quite important role in providing the yoga for foreign settlement. It doesn’t directly get you settled abroad but when the Sun is in the 5th house, it helps you with travelling abroad.
Mercury in 4th house is another yog for chances of travelling. Since Mercury in the 4th house creates constant changes in residences and travel. The native may travel to abroad in one condition if the 4th house is debilitated or has malefics.
Houses that are responsible for foreign settlement
The most important house for foreign settlement is the 12th house. It is the house of foreign lands and spirituality. Here, having Rahu in the 12th house is a strong indication of foreign settlement. However, Rahu and moon conjunction is not considered good as it gives a lot of mental troubles to the native. If Venus also jois the conjunction, it is a very strong indication of foreign settlement. Rahu and Moon in the 12th house is an extremely strong indication that the person leaves his homeland to settle abroad. When the lord of the 9th house moves to the 12th house, it is strong indication that the person is going to travel abroad and it clearly indicates that the destiny and luck of the person is in a foreign land. Planets like Saturn in 12th house can also indicate foreign settlement but in the later half of his life after the age of 30.
The next very important house for foreign settlement is the Lagna house which is the first house of your birth chart. It is the house of the self which is you and when it makes a conjunction or connection with the 12th house, you are bound to settle abroad. Either when the Lagna lord goes to the 12th house or 12th lord sits in the Lagna house or there is a mutual exchange of planets and signs.
After the Lagna, the 4th house becomes one of the most important houses that can signify foreign settlement. The 4th house represents homeland. If the 4th house has malefic planets like Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu or it is in the condition of affliction and when the 4th lord is placed in 6th, 8th, 9th or 12th house, the person is bound to settle abroad. If the 4th house has malefic planets, the person won’t be able to stay in their home country.
The 9th house is another house for Foreign Travel. The 9th house relates to fate, destiny, luck and long distance travel. However, many people get confused that the 9th house represents foreign settlement which is wrong. The 9th house only represents long distance travels and foreign travels. But what’s special about the 9th house is that it is the house of luck and destiny and if you have the luck house supporting the 12th house, then it further increases your chances of settling abroad. If the 9th lord sits in the 12th, it means that the persons luck, fate and destiny lies in the foreign land or country. Having the 9th house is also very important for foreign settlement.
Combinations for foreign settlement in astrology
There is a connection between 4th house with 6th, 7th, 12th and 9th house.
There is a mutual exchange between 1st house and 12th house. Either by lords or mutual aspects. This is a very strong indication of foreign settlement. The chances are further increased if Rahu is in the 12th house.
Rahu as we know is the main planet for foreign settlement. Therefore, the placement of Rahu in the 8th house, 4th house and 12th house directly signifies or creates a yoga for permanently settling in a foreign country.
The significators of 4th house which are Venus and Moon, if afflicted makes a person settle in a foreign land. This is because afflicted Venus and Moon makes it hard for the person to live in their homeland.
If the lord of the 4th house goes to the 12th house or vice versa then, the native moves to a foreign land.
Association of 5th, 9th, and 12th lords in the Dasamsha indicate traveling abroad for professional reasons. These persons are usually employed as skilled professional like (scientists, professors, etc.)in abroad.
If lord of the 7th house is associated with 9th house, 12th house or 8th house, it signifies foreign travel after marriage.
