The desire for travel has been there from the time man inhabited the earth. Human Migration has started long before the beginning of recorded history. Man has faced impossible hazards to travel across the earth to find new places for residing. Modern scientists and oceanographers refused to believe that during unknown times men dared to cross the Pacific Ocean on Balsa raft. They laughed at the idea propounded by ‘Thor Hyerdahl’ that the Inca Indians crossed over to Pacific islands on frail Balsa rafts. This led to KONTIKI expedition and it proved the point.
Though America is supposed to have been discovered by Columbus yet there is evidence to prove that the Vikings used to make frequent trips to that country.
History is replete with incidents of explorers who travelled all over the globe even by walking like Marco polo. As civilization advanced the means of travel became faster and faster. Today the Earth has been reduced into a small sphere and a Supersonic jet can travel around it in 2 to 3hrs.
Man has lost interest in traveling on the earth. He wants to travel in space and reach far away planets.
Vedic seers knew of this human thirst for travel and classified the planetary combinations which give foreign travel. The houses 4th, 9th and 12th are identified for travel and foreign travel in Indian astrology.
Starting from zenith the directions are identified as North, North east, East, South East, South, South-west, west, North-west. Similarly the zodiacal signs are also divided from Aries as North, West, East, and south serially.
Combination of planets for foreign travel for each sign of the zodiac is also given separately.
The Astrologer has to use his skill in combining this information with the dasa and antar dasa of the horoscope to predict foreign travel.
Lastly the purpose of foreign travel can also be identified based on common sense and some intuition on the part of the astrologer.
When 5th lord initiates a foreign travel it will be for higher studies, 2nd lord will initiate it for job and earning, 7th lord initiates it for business, 9th lord gives pleasure trips, and 12th lord may indicate immigration and so on.
Earthly signs indicate travel by land, Watery signs indicate it by Sea, and airy signs indicate it by Air.
Fiery signs should indicate Space travel by rocket propelled space vehicles.
With change of the style of living of man the travel combinations appear in more and more horoscopes. Travel in old age comes for pilgrimages and Ketu gets involved in the scene.
