Foreign Countries – To Go or Not to Go?

Today most people want to go to the other side. The other side is greener. Each person feels that the place they live in is bad and there is so much happiness and prosperity in a foreign land. Is this applicable to all?



The Planets have a plan. Believe it or not! This is plan covers every human being with or without their knowledge. This plan is already revealed in your horoscope. Not in sun signs or moon signs but in your horoscope that is cast based on your date, time and place of birth. This is serious stuff not the usual Astrology for fun that is so common in today’s world.

Foreign Countries – To Go or Not to Go?

Before discussing whether a person has the luck to go abroad or not, we should first answer the following question.

What is foreign?

Anything that is different or not part of us is considered foreign. How much of it is ‘foreign’ is known on the basis of distance from your place of birth or distance from your culture or from your language.

So if you born in Tamilnadu, India then your mother tongue (Language) is Tamil. Uttar Pradesh is a foreign land because people there speak a different language though Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu belong to India.

In the same way USA and INDIA are part of the world but each country is foreign to the other. After sometime foreign may mean a place on Mars.

Making a short trip to any place in the world may have nothing to do with your horoscope except when it happens due to strange reasons or when it happens for the 1st time after many years of trying to go. The planets are usually not the cause of such fun tours. Maybe the real reason is just your desire and the extra money in the bank. Karma or your horoscope has nothing to do with it. But during the same trip you get involved in road accident then ti means it was part of your Karma. If you get arrested in a foreign land then you went there because of your karma. If you become a millionaire by buying a lottery ticket while on a casual trip it is surely part of the plan of the planets. If you come back without any major events then such a trip may not show up in your horoscope.

However when you are going to a foreign land in search of a livelihood and then perhaps even settle down leaving your kith and kin behind and starting a fresh life as though you were born in that new place then it is something to do with your destiny which means the planets in your horoscope are at work. Such a type of transition is not happening due to mere chance or just because you desired to get there.

The other side is always greener. It seems that there is always more happiness in a foreign land. This is true if you are not living in a developed country. Can all of us enjoy life once we go to a much sought after place in the world? Is it the right place? Is the right time? When should we go? When should we come back if at all? Or are we wasting time and spoiling our career by looking for short-term gains in a foreign land. What did Maharshi Parasara (the father of Vedic astrology) say about all this? In his Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra the great seer has answers for all our questions. If you thought His words have no meaning after nearly 5000 years then you are in for an intellectual surprise.

Great Luck in foreign countries:

The 6th house is the house of foreigners. The 2nd house is the house of income. If these are connected either by a conjunction or by a strong aspect between themselves, then a person will have income in foreign countries.

The 11th house deals with gain, and so if a person has the 11th house lord in the 6th the person has great luck to go abroad and work in foreign countries.

The highest luck and karma to go abroad and work comes when you have the 6th house lord in the 10th house (profession/career/livelihood).

If you have the 11th house lord in the 12th house you will have friends abroad. If you have the lagna lord in the 7th house you will constantly travel abroad. If you have few of these then you may go away from your birth city and live in another city but well within your place of birth. The distance is proportionate to the number of these combinations present. The more the better! If you have few of them you can work for foreigners while living in your homeland.

Struggle and wandering in foreign countries:

If  malefic planets like Sani (Saturn), Rahu, Ketu, Ravi (Sun), Kuja (Mars) occupy the 12th house in your horoscope or if these malefic planets are associated with the 12th house in anyway then you will still be able to go abroad and work, but only to lead a life full of stress and struggle there.

After the ruling periods (dasha) of such planets end, your stay abroad will end and you will come back to your home country and will have to start all over again in your homeland.

Most of it is fate, but by doing remedies you can prevent such things to a great extent instead of falling prey to your own karma and desires. Such a bad phase of struggle in foreign countries usually happens during the dasha and bhukti (sub period) of planets related to the 12th house.

People having many of these astrological combination will keep changing jobs frequently in foreign countries due to dissatisfaction and disappointment.

If Rahu occupies the 12th house surely the person may have to live in a foreign land almost like exile from home country, struggle in a foreign country as though the foreign country is a jail, and then after finishing the term come back to freedom.

Is the luck in foreign countries endless?

Not always. There are specific periods of time (ranging from months to years) in which a person has a peak time in foreign countries. Once the luck fades away it is better he/she returns. For some people many years (based on a dasha period) this sort of luck will be experienced in a foreign land y be lucky and they should not return until they finish off their karma in foreign countries.

Luck in homeland

If the 4th house (homeland or motherland) is strongly and beneficially related to 5th and 9th or 1st house, then the person will have great luck in homeland and only during the bad phase of his life such a person will go abroad, but quickly revert back. Such a person will not like to move away from their mother and their motherland. People having such astrological  combination in their horoscope love their home land and will always want to come back.

Dasha effect:

There are some special dasha that always favor the 1st foreign assignment. This is usually the period of Rahu and Ketu, and especially it is Rahu. This is because Rahu is a foreigner to the planetary system as it is just a shadow. Usually in Rahu dasha in the sub period of Ketu, many people have made their 1st trip.

Similarly to Rahu is Saturn. So in the dasha of Saturn also one may go abroad to a foreign land for the 1st time.

If the person is going abroad as a sort of punishment (negative karma) then it may happen during Rahu-Saturn or Saturn-Rahu period. It may also happen in a ruling period of a planet placed in the 12th house or aspecting the 6th.

Bhava position:

If the 4th house lord is in the 6th house or the 12th then such a person is likely to get into trouble by going abroad. Moreover Karma effects will ensure that such a person have to go abroad and then experience great pressure in personal life in a foreign land. Such a person should also look out for vastu defects in the home that they live. Chances are such a person will be pushed by fate to live in a bad-vastu home automatically. With the guidance of a Vastu expert the corrections has to be done.

Planets places on the 6th and 12th axis during their planetary periods may give a person their 1st assignment abroad. Similarly planets placed in such houses that cause luck (yoga) in foreign lands during their planetary period will give foreign assignment. If the period of a planet owning the 10th house occupies the 6th house or vice versa will be excellent time in a foreign land. Such a person will anyway be already having income through foreign lands. So if the period of such a planet comes in the prime age of a person’s life then the sky is the limit.

Favourable directions:

Each planet rules a particular direction. For example Mercury rules over the North side. So Mercury rules the foreign places that are in the north to your place of birth. If Mercury is in Lagna and if the dasha of Mercury starts in your life then you have more luck if you go northwards. If you are in a favourable Venus period and  Venus occupies the 4th house  then moving South East is considered lucky for you. If Saturn is in the 7th house then you will have more luck if you move Westwards. If Moon is in the 4th house then North West is considered good. If Sun is in the 10th house then moving East is considered good.

The Grand Plan of the Planets:

The plan of the planets is that not all the people should go abroad. Not all people should go to the same country in the world. So each person has different luck and that too in different directions at different time. The even distribution is automatic as per Karma plans.

So those who are not supposed to go abroad, even if they manage to go, will have to face failures in a foreign land.Strange are the ways that Karma works through the planetary positions. This is the only way to force them back to the homeland which is what their karma wanted in the first place. 

The question now is do you have the luck to settle abroad? Only your horoscope will tell!
