One of the most revealing techniques in Locational Astrology is called Local Space. With this tool, we can see what areas of the earth will invite a certain kind of energy to emerge for you. We can also think of Local Space as places where specific planetary “teachers” will profoundly influence all aspects of your life.
A quite obvious example of Local Space occurs for former President George W. Bush in Iraq, the exact location where his Mars line emanates. Mars is the god of war, battle, confrontation, aggression, and rash decision and phrases like: “You’re either with us, or against us” or “The Axis of Evil.” (Bush also has a Mars line through Afghanistan – Mars is on his angle of career there. Whatever planet may be on this angle is what we are recognized or remembered for in a certain location.)
Bush’s Local Space Sun line goes through Texas, where he has achieved incredible solar popularity and where his fame first began. Also, Bush’s Sun is in Leo, sign of governance, rule, and in its shadow, self-righteous arrogance. The sun rules Leo, strengthening Bush’s Sun in Texas and influencing his rise to the Leonine ruler of governor in that state. His Local Space Saturn line, which represents where we must put dedicated effort and discipline, goes directly through Austin, Texas where he worked as the governor of the state.
In my own life, I traveled to a Venus Local Space line when I taught at the Boom Festival in Portugal in 2010. This line crosses southern Portugal and Spain. In addition to love, Venus rules both aesthetics and the attractive principle. I met numerous beautiful people, felt a sense of popularity, ease, and pleasure, discovered music I adored, and swam daily in the exquisite waters of the lake. Venus lines also bring women into prominence in our lives. Within a day, I met a woman with whom I shared a profound sense of familiarity, especially of being past life beloveds.
My Venus is in Gemini as is hers. Gemini themes of teaching, travel, language, and even sibling rivalry dominated our connection. We met after I taught an astrological workshop, discussed astrological systems and esoteric teachings of the Egyptians and Maya, often spoke both English and Spanish with each other, and traveled together across the Spain and Portugal—all of which support the Venus in Gemini themes of attraction—foreign tongues, accents, enticing information, and busy city travel by car. I also wrote many short stories, not common for me, in this short trip, and Gemini is the sign of the writer.
Imagine on the day of your birth, Mom or Dad lifted you up the heavens and pointed to each planet in the exact direction it was in the sky—there’s Jupiter, there’s Saturn, there’s Mercury. This is the premise for what astrologers call Local Space Lines.
One way to think about Local Space lines is almost like Feng Shui energies that compel you towards certain areas of the earth to realize aspects of your soul. In these regions, you will encounter archetypal energies specific to the planetary lines. They are the directions of influence in our lives.
To understand the concept of Local Space further, it is helpful to think of a planet as a teacher—a unique intelligence and specific energetic force within your psyche. The closer you travel to or live on a Local Space line, the more a certain planetary teacher rises to dominate your consciousness and teach you its lessons. These lessons will also be specific to how that planet is configured in your chart i.e., the expressive flavor of its sign, house, and aspects. The sign is the pattern of energy the planet embodies, the house is the area of life it lives in your chart as well as the area of life it rules, and the aspects are how the planetary teacher interacts with other planets. These elements make up the experiential gestalt of a Local Space planetary line.
In terms of proximity to living or traveling to one’s Local Space lines, the same rules apply as they do to the more well known locational Astrology technique called Astrocartography (ACG): the closer you move to a planetary line, the more you receive the influence of that planetary intelligence, and how it is conditioned in your birth chart.
