Ingress Charts are extremely useful in Mundane Astrology and it shows the potential energy in a chart that is to be activated in the next 3 months or so. Ingress Chart are usually drawn for a particular area (anywhere in the world) when the Sun enters the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. It is the same as Sun at 0-degree Aries, 0-degree Cancer, 0-degree Libra or 0-degree Capricorn for a particular area in the world. If the Ingress chart for a city has one or more planet conjunct its angles, then generally the next three months will be an important time for the government and people of that area.
The nature of importance depends on the nature of the planet conjunct the angle. As an example, if the Ingress Chart shows Mars on the Ascendant for a particular city, then there is more potential that the people who live in this area may experience different dimensions of the Mars energy through large scale actions. There could be more military action, rebellions, agression from or towards the people who live here, and generally activities that area a reflection of Mars energy. If another City has Venus on its ascendant in the ingress chart, then the energy experienced here for those 3 months is going to be very Venusian – maybe the government will spend money on beautifying the place, may stress more on peace, negotiations, arbitration, etc with its people or with other countries. Ingress Charts also figure prominently in large accidents as seen below:
