Have you ever noticed that when you are on vacation or just traveling through a particular state, you can be more relaxed, creative, and your energy is renewed? There is a calmness or unexplicable peace surrounding you. Sometimes you feel one with the environment (nature) and other times no matter how many good times you had, you are glad to get back home. Another indication of a good state for you (while on vacation) is to see if problems occur when you are there. I have one friend who goes on vacation to a particular state each year and gets injured playing golf, falling off curbs and breaking bones or the weather is horrendous for the week of her vacation. These are simple clues to help you decide that this particular area may not be for suitable to your vibrations, you and your well-being.
In doing astrology over the years, I have rarely met anyone who takes state sun signs into account. Knowing what sun sign an individual state is can help improve peoples’ lives, mental outlook and prosperity. In many cases moving across country, or just to another state, helps an individual dramatically change his/her life; however, this is not necessarily the case all of the time because someone may have chosen a state in the same sun sign of the state they had just left without knowing it. Or they may move to a state that squares or opposes their sun sign and this would create more obstacles and challenges for them to overcome than the original state they had recently left.
When moving to another state, the chart changes; planets that were restrictive or causing too much conflict may move into another house in the chart and ease that area of life that was causing the anxiety or worry. An ascendant may be changed a few degrees or into a totally different sign which would allow the person to perhaps handle situations in a more calm, logical or creative manner than before. There are so many possibilities and I have seen dramatic differences in my clients’ lives that I know it works.
The easiest way I have found for people to know if they are living in their “perfect” state has been to live in a state that has your sun sign. Being a Gemini, it was no surprise that when I vacationed in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I always had a wonderful time even if I had nothing specific to do. When one is in harmony with nature and the vibrational patterns in the environment around you, you are on the right path in your journey. This will lead to happiness, joy and contentment. One day in the future, I may even move to South Carolina because I feel so at home when I am there.
However, if you are planning to move and do not think you would like the states listed in your sun sign; you may always pick a trine state. For instance, in the chart below, if you are a water sign, let’s say Scorpio, your trine states would be in Cancer or Pisces. In turn, if you are a Pisces, your trine signs would be Cancer and Scorpio as indicated in the chart. Trine signs are the same element as your sun sign. You would also get along very well with these particular zodiac sun signs. Squares are three sips from your sun sign in either direction and oppositions are the signs exactly opposite or 180 degrees from your sign. It would be best to stay away from making these particular states your home. An alphabetical listing of the states and their sun signs is listed below.
( are 180 degrees or six signs apart)
These signs oppose each other which means they are opposite each other – usually there is an attraction for a short period of time and then the differences surface and there will be less and less attraction afterwards.

*There are no Aries or Libra States
(120 degrees apart)
Trines are the best aspect you can have. It is your same element, i.e., Fire, Earth, Air or Water. Whatever you are.
You would also never want to move to a state that would be in conflict with your natal sun. These aspects are called squares or oppositions. These sign would be listed as follows:
(90 degrees apart)
Squares are listed in each column, i.e., Aries squares Cancer, Cancer squares Libra, etc. Squares cause frustration and aggravation. It’s like hitting your head against a brick wall over and over again!
It would not be in your best interest to move to any of the states in the column which your sun sign appears. For instance, if you were a Leo, you would not want to move to a Taurus, Scorpio, or Aquarius state.
