Aries ingressOne of the oldest, and in my experience most effective ways to predict the outcome of a national political election is to use an Aries Ingress Chart, which is the horoscope for the ingress of the Sun, set for the nation’s capital.

The Aries ingress is when the Sun enters the zodiac sign of Aries. At this moment the path of the Sun, called the ecliptic, crosses the equator moving into the northern hemisphere. This is the Spring equinox in the northern hemisphere, often referred to as the vernal equinox.

Aries ingress charts are set for the nation’s capital at the exact time when the Sun reaches 0.00 degrees of Aries. The positions of the planets in the zodiac signs are exactly the same for every country on earth. However their position within the houses is different in each case. Because of this difference the political fortunes of of each country are unique.

The incumbent government is shown by the ruler of the 10th house and the opposition party is shown by the ruler of the 4th house.

Planets within these houses reflect conditions within the two parties. Benefics favourable conditions and malefics show difficulties for the respective parties.

There are a number of ways to determine the outcome of a political election. One of the most important is the condition of these two rulers: their essential and accidental dignities, planets in the 10th and 4th houses, and aspects to these rulers.

An important consideration is the next aspect of the Moon. The Moon is generally used to represent the common people, the voters, although the ruler of the 1st house can also be used for this purpose. Benefics or malefics applying to these rulers can often describe the outcome.

The assessment about which party will win the elections is often determining by evaluating the factors for and against.
