There are numerous branches of astrology to choose from. Planets, countries, towns, entities, businesses, geographical events, and the entire universe are all governed by mundane astrology, which is a branch of astrology. A single person’s chart is studied in birth charts, but in mundane astrology, we look at something larger, something that has been around for a longer period.
World horoscopes or astrology is descended from the Latin word “Mundus,” which literally translates as “world”. It is, very literally, the astrology of the entire planet! Mundane astrology provides us with information about what is going on in the world as a result of the gravitational attraction of the planets. It is used to make predictions about the future and to prepare for unforeseen situations.
Early astrology was heavily affected by mundane astrology, which was practiced at the time. From antiquity to the present, the person was not regarded to be particularly significant. he or she was considered to be a member of the community that astrology was intended to serve. At this time, astrology played a major role in social life. Curious to know more about this?

What is Mundane Astrology for you?
Mundane astrology is the branch that is concerned with the study of history, society, and political affairs. In the past, it served two primary purposes: first, to comprehend the past, and second, to forecast the future. Both functionalities, on the other hand, are subsumed under a larger goal: to manage the current situation.
Indeed, in the face of apocalyptic worries of political collapse or global catastrophe, mundane astrology’s most important role has always been to maintain peace, order, and stability on a local and global scale. At the very least, this was the intention of its cosmology. We should also take into consideration the fact that Pluto represents change, Saturn represents maturity, and Mercury represents communication, three vital components in this astrology.
This is not to disprove the existence of more apparent selfish incentives, such as the desire to obtain a political advantage over one’s competitors, but it is to point out that these are not the only ones. As a result, there may be astrologers who work according to one set of rules, while their political patrons function according to another.
What does Political Astrology mean for you?
Charles Carter, the most notable British astrologer of the middle ages, wrote in his book “An Introduction to Political Astrology” which asserts that “the purpose of Political Astrology is the study of all that refers to the existence of a politically included body, or nation. ” It must encompass all aspects of human existence, including intellectual and cultural life, religious life, economic life, and so on.”
However, due to the blurring of the lines between the personal and the professional, it will not always be easy to distinguish between normal and extraordinary astrological phenomena. When interactions are political (for example, when they involve power ties between males and females or between children and adults), is a composite chart considered ordinary by these individuals?
It should also be noted that, while the birth charts of politicians can be interpreted according to the norms of traditional natal astrology, they are unquestionable of direct value in mundane activity, and that the horary charts of politicians can be regarded mundane as well. Likewise, financial astrology, which is unquestionably commonplace, has developed into a distinct field in its own right.
How do you read or make a Mundane Astrology Chart?
To create a Mundane astrology chart, you follow the same steps that you would use to create your own persona chart. For a country or nation, all you need is the country’s birthdate and the location of the country. Most of the time, this represents the “official” time and location at which a sovereign nation came into being.
In the case of the United States, we utilize the date, location, and time of the official inauguration of the Declaration of Independence was signed as a starting point. The first formal inauguration, on the other hand, can be used if no definite date can be established as to when the nation was genuinely established. You would carry out the same procedure for a business, entity, town, city, or any other location or thing.
The following options are available when you don’t have a precise birth time: use your best guess, use 12 pm noon, or use your pendulum to select a birth time that both appears and feels right. Although a Mundane astrology chart will appear to be identical to any other chart in the universe, the signs, houses, and planets all have somewhat different meanings that are plainly applicable to larger entities.
The Planetary Influences in Mundane Astrology
#1: The Sun
Traditionally, in mundane astrology, the Sun represents leaders and those holding positions of authority. These are the civil servants who the general public looks up to or must look up to. Prime ministers, monarchs, emperors, presidents, magistrates, and judges, among others, would be represented by the Sun.
Individuals who are respected by the public, even if they are not in a formal position of power, can be represented by the Sun under certain circumstances. This jurisdiction has been placed upon the government by the people. In a Mundane “natal” chart, the Sun can also symbolize the will or force of a nation, depending on the chart.
#2: The Moon
If the Sun is the ruler, the Moon represents the general populace or the people in their entirety. This can represent all of humanity at times, while the Moon can also represent women more particularly at other times. It also denotes the presence of a large number of people.
On the other hand, the Moon can signify anything having to do with water (such as transportation and weather conditions), and also land and agriculture. The Moon almost usually reveals where the general public’s attention is concentrated. Additionally, the Moon is associated with something that attracts attention or that people take notice of.
Mercury signifies everything that has to do with the news and media. Newspapers, television channels, books, authors, the media, speakers, commentators, educators, and intellectuals are all included in this category.
Mercury can also signify what is being taught or communicated intellectually in some cases, according to some sources. According to common astrology, Mercury can represent both transportation (often public transportation) and communication.
Venus is the goddess of creativity and represents artists, musicians, performers, sports, theater, festivals, children, courting, and marriage, among other things. Also, Venus represents all that has to do with beauty and amusement. When Venus is adversely aspected, the aesthetics and tranquility of a country will suffer. Remember, Venus is the planet of beauty and harmony.
As a symbol of the military (such as the navy, the army, or the air force), the local police, attacks on the nation as well as disagreements, political tension, conflict, and opposition, Mars represents all of these too. When looking at the Mundane astrology chart, anything that has to do with fire will be reflected in Mars.
Mars, on the other hand, can represent leaders who aren’t always in the spotlight, such as engineers, military leaders, and medical professionals. This planet is also capable of displaying plagues, violent crimes, and other commotions. When something violent is taking place, the first place to look is Mars.
Jupiter is a bit of a paradox in ordinary astrology because of its dual nature. It is both representatives of the religious community and of the judicial system. In Jupiter, there are priests, religious leaders, financiers, judges, and lawyers, to name a few professions.
Because Jupiter oversees both expansive financial institutions, authority positions, and public health, it can manifest in a variety of ways, including signs of order, harmony, prosperity, religious views, and other aspects of life.
Saturn is the planet that represents local police enforcement and small executives. In the United States, Saturn, for example, is often used to represent the executive branches of every state or city government. Saturn can also represent public servants, landlords, mine operators, any public spaces or parks, and the elderly population, amongst other things.
Additionally, Saturn manifests epidemics, large-scale tragedies, public sadness, national calamities, and resource scarcity, to name a few of Saturn’s bad characteristics.
When it comes to mundane astrology, Uranus is known as “the black sheep of the herd.” It reflects the friction between political forces of various kinds. When Uranus appears, it indicates that individuals are attempting to break free from their shackles. Usually, Uranus manifests as rioting, strikes, and other forms of protest in support of individualism.
Sometimes it can be associated with right-wing politics (particularly on the libertarian side), but it can also be associated with scientific breakthroughs and inventions as well as other things. Uranus is the planet of air and train transportation, as well as labor unions, explosions, chaos, and the electrical and radio industries, among other things.
If Uranus tilts to the right, Neptune leans to the left, toward communism and socialism, as shown in the chart. Neptune, on the other hand, might symbolize universal healthcare and hospitalization, charities, covet schemes, deception, unlawful actions, and financial loss, among other things. Also, Neptune, in some aspects, can represent deception or delusion.
It can demonstrate when people are unable to distinguish between what is real and what is not, and it can demonstrate the illusions that a country or nation portrays to the remainder of the world. The spirituality of a country, on the other hand, is represented by Neptune in some cases. This is on a far deeper level than simply religious belief systems. It can imply the use of drugs or the development of addictions on a large scale.
Pluto, at its best, is a symbol of transformation and rebirth. No matter where Pluto appears in a chart, he is associated with transformation and regeneration, no matter how painful the process may be. Pluto can represent a variety of things in everyday astrology.
Political undergrounds, espionage, criminal enterprises, money, power, domination, violence, assault, death, concealed information, labor organization, mob mentality, and the collective consciousness of a nation are just a few of the issues that have been raised.
The Houses in Mundane Astrology
#1: The 1st House
The 1st house of Mundane astrology governs the entire country, according to the traditional interpretation. Because the Ascendant is located in this sign, it also reveals how the nation or corporation is perceived by the general public.
When you’re looking at transits, take close attention to anything that occurs in the house of the first. These planets will have a significant impact on the entire country. The 1st house is where the majority of major events take place.
#2: The 2nd House
The wealth of a nation, the economy, currency, revenue, banks, the stock exchange, financial institutions, the money market, and trade are all governed by the 2nd house of the zodiac. It also has authority over the belongings or property of individuals as a collective. The 2nd house governs all things material in nature. Astrological planets in the second house will have an impact on the finances and economy of a country, a nation, or a firm.
#3: The 3rd House
The 3rd house governs all forms of short-term transportation, like driving, taking the bus, taking the metro, or riding a bicycle. In addition, because the third house represents communication, it represents everything that has to do with news and information, such as the post office, mass media, breaking news, the internet, telephones, and magazines as well as publishing and newspapers, among other things.
It can also reign over young people, as well as educational institutions or places of education. In most cases, the third house will indicate the manner in which information is communicated and received in a nation. Those planets that transit through the 3rd house will have an impact on either the reception or the production of information.
#4: The 4th House
The 4th house is the basis of the structure. In addition to governing the home, landowners, and workers of the land, it also governs fundamental cities and the basis on which persons are employed or voted for. Also, the 4th house might also be associated with the weather on occasion.
Because the 4th house is directly opposite the 10th house (which often governs leaders or those in positions of authority), it is all about the average citizen and the family unit. It’s usually in direct opposition to the leaders, and it may serve as a reminder of the country’s origins or the manner in which how it was first established.
#5: The 5th House
The 5th house has jurisdiction over theatres, sporting events, venues of entertainment and amusement, gaming, and social occasions, among other things. People’s interests and how they spend their spare time are demonstrated; it is all about what people do for enjoyment as a culture.
What types of activities are considered recreational? This will be demonstrated by the 5th house. This house, on the other hand, can have an impact on the birth rate, children (and how they are raised), and relationship issues.
#6: The 6th House
The 6th house is in charge of public health, hospitals, healthcare, and epidemics, among other things. Trade unions, national services, public servants of the country, as well as staff members of a firm, are all governed by the Constitution. An individual’s attitude toward labor and health might be reflected in the architecture of a country’s main residence.
#7: The 7th House
The 7th house rules foreign affairs, relations with other countries (for better or worse), and the national marriage/divorce rate. It shows the “other parties” involved with the nation/country/corporation. It can also indicate other people involved in an event who are victims.
#8: The 8th House
It is the 8th house that governs death rates, kinds of individuals who perish, how a country deals with death, and financial links with other countries. The amount of debt a country or organization owes, and also loans, interest, and taxes, can be determined by this indicator. In addition, when people are feeling oppressed or when there is some form of power conflict, the 8th house might be significant.
#9: The 9th House
In addition to religion, churches, and religious impact on the public, the 9th house governs higher education, professors, philosophic and scientific institutions, as well as religious influence on the public.
The 9th house, on the other hand, can also govern long-distance travel by boat or plane, as well as locations of recreation or huge gatherings. In addition, the 9th house governs the law and the judicial institutions.
#10: The 10th House
The 10th house represents the person or persons in power as well as the government in general, according to astrology. It’s possible that the 10th house may also rule prominent people, even if they aren’t in positions of authority. In a broader national context, the 10th house governs reputation, credit, authority, and the proportion of the population employed in the public sector.
When a planet transits the 10th house, it will have an effect on the leaders of a nation or corporation, as well as the government or controlling organization as a whole, according to astrology. When examining the astrology of politics, this house is particularly important to consider.
#11: The 11th House
The 11th house is in charge of the masses and organizations. The influence of mob psychology is undeniable in this situation. If you’re looking at a Mundane astrology chart for an event, the 11th house can be particularly helpful to you. The 11th house, on the other hand, is responsible for the majority of “rebellious” periods or times of transition. Idealism and optimism are also expressed in this work.
#12: The 12th House
Prisons, hospitals, asylums, societies, and occult institutions are all ruled by the 12th house, which is also known as the house of imprisonment. It also has authority over the people who live or work in these locations.
It also governs the conclusion of events and can predict how a reign or event will come to an end. When a planet transits the 12th house, it is usually a sign that something that has been hidden will be brought into the open.
