Tennesse Williams wrote of New Orleans as being like his Moon City. Fittingly, in astrocartography, his Jupiter and North Node/IC lines ran through it. So he would feel particularly at home and nurtured by such a place. The IC line is like your home line, it’s got a lunar sanctuary energy to it.
“New Orleans and the moon have always seemed to me to have an understanding between them, an intimacy of sisters grown old together, no longer needing more than a speechless look to communicate their feelings to each other. This lunar atmosphere of the city draws me back whenever the waves of energy which removed me to more vital towns have spent themselves and a time of recession is called for. Each time I have felt some rather profound psychic wound, a loss or a failure, I have returned to this city. At such periods I would seem to belong there and no place else in the country.”
– Tennessee Williams, “The Angel in the Alcove”
Astrocartography is when you project your natal birth chart over the world, a country or town. You end up with Sun, Moon and planet lines in particular places. They have the characteristics of that planet. Nobody – that I know of – has ever tested this by going around living on each of their planet lines. But FYI, I live on my Mercury line (writing, reading a lot, high word output) and people consistently report rad results from their Jupiter line.
Do you have a Moon City?
