I see. I simply assumed SF would do the calculations in the same way with the two approaches.
When I relocate first I see the following:
D. Saturn has been on l. IC and d. MC is in 1°orb with n. Saturn, no wonder it's been depressive for a long while.
Continued living in Edinburgh will mean that the d. Saturn to IC moves out of the 2° orb and the d. Neptune out of 1° orb in summer 2020 but then the d. MC will still be partile sq n. Saturn. For the d. Nep to be out of 2° and d. MC to be out of 1° orb it will take 2 years from now. I am not sure it is a healthy environment for me, unless the SSR's really help alleviate that heavy burden. The next two years SSRs in Edinburgh do seem to be very positive with Jupiter, Venus and Moon themes as I see it ...although I do fear that period when Saturn and Pluto are going to conjunct the n. Nnode which is usually connected with family and close relationships. I noticed they will be opposing my father's n. Sun at the same time.
POF is partile conjunct l. MC.
D. ASC has been moving out of 3° orb with n. Saturn ... so I guess in the safe zone now....but that d. ASC would have t. Neptune back and forth in its vicinity it for a long while.
D. Pluto has moved out of the 1° intense orb and is 1,38° from l. MC. (I think the orb is wider than 1°... so this is still an active conjunction).
However, the plus is that d. MC is exact on n. Jupiter right now....so maybe this is a good place to spend a few months.
L. MC partile conjunct n. Nodes.
D. ASC partile conjunct both n. Venus and n. Jupiter and 1,39° from sq n. Pluto.
D. Venus partile sq. l. ASC.
Att. d. Saturn is moving into orb with the l. POF.
Both Portugal and Costa Rica seem like they could be good places with these solar arcs.
I feel drawn to both places.
However, the 2019 SSR looks a lot better in Portugal where the Sun-Venus conjunction wraps around the SSR IC over there....but it will still have n. Neptune on the SSR DSC.
The SSR in CR will have Mars partile the DSC and Mars forms the midpoint in a yod with Nep and Pluto. N. Mars is also in that vicinity. Perhaps that's ok if I would be helping to build houses as I would like to ... but it could also bring out other aspects of Mars aggression.
This SSR will also have the SSR Venus on l. DSC and that Sun-Venus conjunction is wrapped around the l. WP. So I guess that is also a good place to be
Maybe I will simply visit both places within this SSR.
