Indeed, if we look at the evolution of the fundamental period with respect to the semi-ma jor axis, it is clear that the so-called secondary resonances are associated, regarding the angle σ, with periods which are commensurate with 1 year.

As a consequence, we can presumably assume that these secondary resonances are actually related to a commensurability between σ and the 1 year period angle λ⊙, that is the ecliptic longitude of the Sun.
