Introduction to Mundane Astrology.

Postby Atul » 11 Jan 2010 08:23

Mundane astrology is the application of astrology to world affairs and world events, taking its name from the Latin word Mundus, meaning "the World". Mundane astrology is a branch of Judicial astrology and is widely believed by astrological historians to be the most ancient branch of astrology. In the Middle Ages mundane astrology was more commonly known as the study of Revolutions - meaning the study of the revolutions of the planets in their apparent orbits around the Earth, as they were then believed to do.

Overview

Mundane astrology had two purposes: one was to look back and explain history, looking for patterns and a sense of some greater purpose in apparently chaotic events such as the rise and fall of empires or religions. The other was to predict the future. Some philosophers believed that the world could be saved from disaster if future troubles could be predicted – and subsequently averted.
Although it was originally developed in ancient Babylon there have been three subsequent major periods of developments. In 120 AD the Greek astrologer Claudius Ptolemy set down the fundamentals of mundane astrology in his famous treatise on astrology, the Tetrabiblos. In the ninth and tenth centuries the astrologers of the Islamic world added many more techniques, particularly the use of the cycles of Jupiter and Saturn to identify the rise and fall of states and religions. The twentieth century saw a major proliferation of techniques mainly based on the use of planetary cycles rather than, as had always been the case the interpretation of planetary positions in horoscopes or natal charts.
An approach to studying longer-term history through astrology is through the use of "precession of the equinoxes" indicators, providing a source for the idea of Astrological Ages.

One example for this would be
While Saturn was in Cancer 2005-2007, the world saw catastrophic rains. Mumbai 26 Jul, Katrina...

saturn in leo 2007 to sep 2009 was not so good for rains.

As soon as Saturn entered Kanya 9 Sep 2009, there were suddenly many ran evenets around the world.
Flood in phillipines, Tycoons, flood in Atlanta, US. And now in winter, snowfall at so many places. and record winter temperatures.

Yes,

similarly we can make different types of charts to see different types of significations. Like solar year charts, lunar year charts, nations' birth chart. Further, these are also of different types which I will like to discuss with time. We can use different nakshatra dashas, annual charts monthly charts and so on. We can also use divisional charts in Mundane astrology.

I am also not too expert in mundane astrology and just like a novice in this field, But as we will discuss I hope I will also get to learn new things and improve my skills.

Hello All
All I know is that the United Kingdom is ruled by Mars.Possibly Aries ASC.
Obviously, this is taken from its 'time of birth'.
What is the best source on internet for finding out each country's Time of Birth ?
Shall appreciate your replies.
Regards
Mohotha

Actually it is very old date hence may be some difference in calculations. I also tried LMT but not much difference.

Is the chart according to western astrology or vedic astrology?

also please confirm the planet's positions

Sun Sagi 22 57'
Moon Sagi 20 48'
