Mundane Astrology

The principle of astrology can not only be applied to horoscopes of living being such as humans and animals but also anything else in this world such as nations, institutions, organisations, associations etc. We should appreciate the fact that everything in this world is only temporary, it can be marked by a specific time when it came into existence and there would also be a time when it will cease to exist. In this world of maya numerous things are created and destroyed every momenet and all such things can be analysed using astrological principles. This can be done because essentially everything in this manifested universe can be mapped to 12 signs and 9 planets based on the underlying forces of 5 elements. One should note however that the signs represent the immobile aspect whereas the planets represents the mobile (living) aspects of the things under consideration.

The mentioned things can be analysed by creating a horoscope at the moment of commencement of the thing. For instance, the nation's events can be prognosicated using horoscope casted at the moment of independence, while the election of leaders etc. can be seen from the horoscope casted at the moment of commencement of the constitution which gives the authority to elect rulers. Thus one must understand the chart needs to be seen based on the nature of events to be studied from it. Although the astroligical classics gives the framework for analysing mundane horoscopes, one must have considerable experience in natal horoscopy before venturing into mundane charts.

Like all events in the natal horoscopy be associated with the 12 houses of the zodiac, similarly in the mundane horoscopy there are associations of various things with vaarious houses.
