Sidereal Mundane Astrology by James A Eshelman
SMA has proven t be the single most fruitful area of astrological study not just for its own sake, but also for all the things that spill out of it.
For it’s own sake, it’s fascinating – definitely holds interest.
But aside from that, SMA has allowed for a dozen or more specific technical details to be pinned down. There are so many things that couldn’t be explored in natal astrology ever because of imprecision of birth times and poor cataloguing of precision dates. The very fact that every mundane chart’s correct time is known to the second has payoffs I didn’t at all appreciate before starting. Just as a small example, we know the accurate quotidian rate and pace absolutely, with no doubt – something that was debated for decades with natal astrology without resolution. We know that though angularity within a static chart (like a Capsolar – or a natal) is to be taken mundanely, transits to angles and quotidian contacts are to be taken ecliptically – something that we could have learned only from a system where chart times are known to within seconds etc. A dozen (maybe dozens) more things like this. SMA has allowed me to sort, itemize, and identify astrology’s fundamental structures with a certainty nothing else has given.
And that’s aside from the fact that every major event examined confirms the SVP to within a few seconds at most, a second or two most likely. It may be (despite all the TZ vs. SZ debate) that the ONE thing we know with greater certainty than any other astrological factor is exactly where the boundaries of the zodiac fall.
All of this – every one of these details – is a gift of Sidereal Mundane Astrology. SMA is like the U.S. space program, and we’ve gotten lots of Tang from it along the way.
