The word “mundane” means worldly, and in astrology, refers to the houses of the chart because they rule worldly affairs – manmade conditions on the face of the Earth. An ingress chart is set for the entry of the Sun into the four cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

The Sun is always at zero degrees. An ingress chart can be set for any location. Setting the ingress chart for the capital city of a country indicates conditions for the entire country, as that country is being governed from that particular location.
