Mundane Astrology in a light read learning format.  Fictional characters and a homey setting allow readers to become comfortable with the broad terms of astrology of topical interest, meaning in the day-to-day world.  Mundane astrology was the first astrology authorized by kings and queens for themselves their nations, and thus, it became astrology for their subjects.  Eventually more persons became learned in the art, and could customize readings for individuals.  But Mundane Astrology is considered the first astrology for other than seafarers and travelers.
