The Magic of AstroCartography
So you’ve heard about AstroCartography: a magical astrological technique that enables us to peer into the energies and potentials that certain places on Earth hold for an individual.
The sort of energies we can find include:
- Community and friends who feel like family
- Domestic balance and stability
- Excitement, adventure, partygoing
- Spiritual connection to the land and waters
- Ties to ancestral and past-life events and people
- Resonance and connection with local culture
- Professional growth and expansion
- Potential for harmonious relationship
- A local need for your particular service
- Positive reception of your being
So what about a reading?
An AstroCartography reading is not limited to naming the supportive energies of a place, however. We can also look with great detail at energies that serve as obstacles in our everyday lives. Each concept listed above has its converse expression as well, and sometimes these difficult aspects are what motivate us to move on from a place.
- Instability in profession, domecile, and relationship
- A sense of isolation from a lack of deep conection with others
- Repeating patterns of extreme confrontation with others and/or with your own inner demons.
- A disconnect with local customs and culture
- Overwhelm of duties and responsibilities
- A sense of dissolving and disappearing; a place where nothing you do matters
- Stagnance, tedium, and predictability
- The lack of a healthy pace of life, and resulting health issues.
Finding Your Flow
Also known as astrolocality, astrogeography, locational and relocational astrology, AstroCartography serves as a bridge of empowerment between Astrology-based self-knowledge and our personal wills. But, it must be noted that harnessing AstroCartography does not bring about a recalibration of your birth chart. You will still be You no matter where you land.
AstroCartography allows you to amplify chosen energies, and to bring more challenging life patterns into a better flow. However, it is not a sidestep from the work you're on Earth to do. My role as your AstroCartographer is help unify your personal journey with the energetic imprint that Earth and the heavens have rolled out for you.
I offer three types of the AstroCartography Reading
Full AstroCartography Reading
A recorded Zoom or phone conversation lasting 60-90 minutes. In our time together, we combine your energetic maps with a deep understanding of your birth chart. Before the reading, I compile thorough notes on your birth chart and how it applies to any places you find interesting, as well as special places that stick out to me. My research process can yield results that are surprising and exciting, as well as grounding and affirming. Together, we will leaf through the layers of your energy lines, foraging for insights about places both familiar and new to you.
- 50 USD per additional chart (partners, children, etc.)
- Option to pay in installments
Exclusive to returning clients, this reading is custom-structured to your follow-up questions, new places and potential futures you would like to explore. This can be a shared session or a recording, whichever better suits your needs at the time. Like the Full AstroCartography Reading, numerous elements of your birth chart will be discussed here. This is my go-to for returning clients who are seeking a hybrid Birth Chart/AstroCartography session with me. No questions or topics are off the table! Like the Full Reading, this is a recorded Zoom or telephone conversation.
Place-Specific Micro Reading
This offering is a full examination of up to three specific places*. After a close study of your chart with this place, I will record a video detailing the energies present, and send you a downloadable video file.
*In the context of AstroCartography, the scope of a "place" qualifies as something the size of Massachusetts, roughly 10,000 square miles or 27,000 square kilometers. Although of course this boundary can be flexible, entire continents and nations do not apply.
50 USD per place
So how does this work?
- You must know your birth data, including an exact birth time (within four minutes).
- You fill out a contact form including your birth data, with a message detailing your situation.
- I respond with potential dates/times for us to meet, and possibly some fleshing-out questions so I can better understand your needs.
- Once we have a date and time, I will send you payment information. You will pay with a card through a secure portal provided by Stripe.
- I will send you the Zoom information the week of your reading, and thus begins your AstroCartography adventure.

Testimonials and Feedback
Emily, in Pennsylvania
So I have had several astrologers read my chart, but I can honestly say Phil has been the most accurate and spot-on. He uncovered the hidden patterns beneath what you can actually see in my chart. The information he provided was literally spot-on. I was amazed!
I did an AstroCartography reading, and he showed me some great options for moving. Phil was down to earth, easy to understand, empathetic, and kind. He will now be my go-to for astrology related things!
Monte, in Texas
We reached out to Astro Phil as we were impressed by what we read about his practice and were immediately set at ease with his calm demeanor and openness to our numerous questions and initial trepidation. We had a list of cities and countries that we had either visited and liked or just heard about and he guided us through two rounds of why some would be positive for us for various reasons and why some would not. Phil not only read our charts to select the places that best fit our birth charts, he also meditated on the information we had given him about us to guide us even further. We now have a short list of places we must visit (or move)!
Phil is such a kind soul and his authenticity shines through from the very first moment. It was a sincere pleasure to work with him and we would recommend him again and again to friends and family.
Holly, in Georgia
Astro Phil took me on a deep dive into the planetary, lunar, solar, and asteroidal influences on my life journey. In my AstroCartography reading, he pulled out the many threads of my natal chart and traced them across the globe as he inquired into my inhabitance and travels on earth, with my specific needs in mind.
He absorbed the intricacy of my zodiacal constitution with deep attention and careful thought. The explorations he undertook on my behalf were thorough and inquisitive. He was generous with his time and patient in pausing for questions and further explanation. His reading gave me insight and, as a bonus, provided me a deeper understanding of the celestial realm and a curiosity to go further.
Clients always ask if we found our home in Appalachian Kentucky with the use of AstroCartography. The answer is nuanced. While we used AstroCartography to rule out certain places, our home in Kentucky seemed to magnetically pull us in. When we visited the area, it simply felt right. And as it turns out, the AstroCartography lines here are pretty great, too.
Meet your AstroCartographer
If we haven't met, I am Phil. As soon as I learned about AstroCartography, I dropped everything and immediately immersed myself in the study. It wasn't long before I had traveled the bulk of North America and Europe, exploring my own energy lines and relocated charts. I found home years later with a trunk-load of unexpected lessons, and a much more intimate knowledge of the technique. Soon after, I delivered a talk on the subject for the Astrological Society of Kentucky (a delightful and brilliant group of astrologers).
In working with me, clients receive a far more detailed and true-to-you approach than they can find with point-and-click maps online. I work with asteroids, subtle aspects and unmarked points in the chart (midpoints and midpoint structures) that can have a huge, if not definitive impact on your experience in a place. As well, the online automated interpretations do not take into account the complex nature of your natal chart and the planets therein. You are You--not a mass-produced product--and I would hope you wouldn't degrade yourself with standardized interpretations.
Every being is divine, and arrives on this plane with inherent purposes. That is the truth from which I do this work. I find deep fulfillment in guiding others toward their dreams and visions. This article on the AstroCartography of Osho is a small window into my methodology (which has since expanded).
