Predictions by Mundane Astrology

Forecasting World Events in the Horoscope

The Wheel of Fortune.
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.

       In the first case, what are being described astrologically are general tendencies and events affecting the whole world. In the latter case, it's the individual perspective only. Below are some examples of the former.

Mundane Astrology - World Events

Here 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.

       World event predictions belong to mundane astrology. Of course, if a complete horoscope chart is made on a country or an institution of some kind, that would also be mundane astrology.

       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.


In 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.

  • Sun   1 year

  • Moon   1 month

  • Mercury   1 year

  • Venus   1 year

  • Mars   2 years

  • Jupiter   12 years

  • Saturn   29 years

  • Uranus   84 years

  • Neptune   165 years

  • Pluto   248 years

  • Ascendant, AC   1 day

  • Medium Coeli, MC   1 day

       As you can see, the difference is tremendous - from one day to 248 years. The three slowest planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, are called generation planets, because their position in the horoscope is shared by a whole generation. The quickest points in the horoscope are the AC and MC, making one rotation each day. Therefore, they are the most personal points in the horoscope.


In 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:

  • Sun   basic drive

  • Moon   longing

  • Mercury   curiosity

  • Venus   affection

  • Mars   aggression

  • Jupiter   luck

  • Saturn   duty

  • Uranus   contemplation

  • Neptune   fantasy

  • Pluto   catharsis

  • Ascendant, AC   attitude

  • Medium Coeli, MC   self-image

       These planetary forces are affected by their position in the Zodiac, where each sign represents a different quality or tendency that the planet there will express, while in that sign. The Zodiac sign qualities are:

  • Aries   challenging, impulsive

  • Taurus   conservative, concrete

  • Gemini   communicative, playful

  • Cancer   caring, sensitive

  • Leo   dominant, proud

  • Virgo   careful, minute

  • Libra   negotiating, ethical

  • Scorpio   hidden, passionate

  • Sagittarius   impatient, independent

  • Capricorn   ambitious, decisive

  • Aquarius   profound, original

  • Pisces   searching, submissive

       Furthermore, the horoscope is also divided into 12 astrological Houses. They represent different settings, specific fields of life where the action takes place. Generally speaking, and in a mainly personal perspective, they are:

  1. Identity
  2. Resources, economy
  3. Communication, education
  4. Home, family
  5. Pastime, pleasures
  6. Work
  7. Partners
  8. The unknown
  9. Travel
  10. Social status
  11. Ideals
  12. Shortcomings

       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:

  • conjunction, 0   fusion

  • opposition, 180   separation

  • trine, 120   harmony

  • square, 90   conflict

  • sextile, 60   cooperation

       For more information about the components above, see the links in the left menu.

       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.
