Predictions by Mundane Astrology
Forecasting World Events in the Horoscope
As the planets move across the Zodiac,
forming constellations with one another,
life on earth is readable accordingly.
There are two major methods for prediction in astrology - one by observing the planetary movements in the sky, the other by analyzing a specific horoscope.
Mundane Astrology - World EventsHere are links to some mundande astrology horoscopes, dealing not with persons but with world events. I will add more examples, eventually, so please come back to this website.
Personal astrology is done by the birth chart, also called nativity, erected for the moment of a person's birth. Much can be said about that person's future, just by looking at the complete horoscope chart. In addition to it, the astrologer can use transits, ie. planetary movements in the sky forming aspects to planetary positions in the horoscope.
VelocityIn whatever kind of astrological prediction, it must be remembered that the planets move with very different speed around the Zodiac. Therefore, they also differ in how long it takes for them to complete their orb and return to any given position. So, some planetary events are frequent, while others are very rare. That decides the level of their importance.
Here are the orbit speeds of the planets, the time it takes for them to make one rotation around the Zodiac, in round numbers - from a geocentric perspective, ie. as seen from the earth. From earth, the inner planets are seen not to make more than one full rotation per year, whereas the outer planets differ little in speed along the Zodiac from a heliocentric perspective (as seen from the sun). Note that in astrology some other celestial bodies and points are regarded the same way as actual planets.
KeywordsIn astrology and the horoscope, each planet represents an acting force, either internally in a person or externally in the world. These forces can be described with the following keywords:
Finally, there are interactive links between the planets and the action they represent, when they are at certain distances to each other. These specific distances are called aspects, and traditionally the most important of them are:
In astrology, these components are interpreted in a combined way. A planet, its Zodiac sign, House and aspects - it's all brought together in the search for the specific meaning in the horoscope.
Above are links to closer looks at the roles of Neptune and Pluto in mundane astrology prediction. These two generation planets say a lot about trends and events in the world. Since their orbs can be calculated far into the future, they can easily be used in prediction about tendencies in social development. You also find other astrologically based predictions on the list. I add things now and then.
