Monday, September 10, Zoom in to Saturn: A Hubble Video As astrologers, it's always nice to also stay aware of the actual planets themselves. Here's a nice short video of approaching Saturn, showing its rotation, and ending with views of its polar auroras. It answers the question: Are planets in Dusthana Houses 6, 8, and 12 muted by being placed there or can they have a positive and significant impact on a person's life?

Thursday, April 5, Essential Oil Shootouts Those who get their essential oils only from one company, believing the party line that the company promulgates, may end up with very poor quality oils.
I am a big fan of "shootouts", where two or more people get together and compare oils of the same type e. I've just written a page on my first and last shootouts here.

This inspired my latest article, which you can read here. I realized recently that I'd never published it on my website, so I revised it and here it is. Note: I examined almost apps to write this article, which focuses on the most accurate and best apps available.
These programs, by Curt Manwaring, represent the pinnacle of Traditional Astrology software, and the fact that he has cut the pricing by half make them a truly excellent software addition for any astrologer interested in Hellenistic or Medieval astrology.

Learn more about the other meteor showers that will occur this year, and how to watch them.
He has the North Node conjunct his Sun at birth, at the top of his chart, see below. As I indicated in my previous article about his chart , many of his behaviors can be attributed directly to the effects of the North Node Rahu conjunct the Sun, who is also the ruler of the chart in both Western Tropical and Vedic Sidereal charts. This makes the Sun the most important planet in the chart by far.
His relentless drive, egocentrism, unwavering beliefs, and inability to take in the advice of others with different views are a few of the challenging traits archetypical of the North Node. As I've said, the North Node is incredibly amplifying. It inflates everything it touches, for better or for worse. Again, a testament to the role of the North Node as a malefic planet. And as anyone can see from current events, the world has gone a bit haywire, which is very typical of the time before, on, and shortly after an eclipse.
The current eclipse is a North Node one. Surprisingly, I've never heard of any Western astrologer making a distinction between the two types of eclipses, which has to be a very important one. Astute astrologers have already noticed that the eclipse occurs just about a degree from Donald Trump's Ascendant, and of course, being born just before a Lunar eclipse, he is likely to be deeply affected by the upcoming eclipse, more than most people. Certainly his latest gaffes concerning the Charlottesville tragedy have cost him a great deal, so hopefully the eclipse energy won't make his behavior even worse.
After all, that's when they start being called president-elect! This has been made even more obvious in the case of Donald Trump. He was at the tail end of his Rahu Dasa I. But unfortunately, the North Node also is a very destabilizing influence, and things begun during the Rahu Dasa often have an illusory type of fulfillment. And particularly for his chart again born at a Lunar Eclipse , the Rahu Dasa indicated that his presidency would be a very rocky ride.
Toad's Wild Ride", I. And it can be a positive period for people with well-placed North Nodes, e. By the way, one who is not familiar with Vedic astrology might ask, "but if it's only 8 days before he leaves this influence, shouldn't its effects be transitory? Eight days later, he entered the Jupiter Dasa, and it's obvious that his term in office has been anything but Jupiterian. And to hope that the upcoming eclipse brings positive changes to our country and the world. I recently had a similar experience when a Vedic astrologer asked me why Shri Jyoti Star calculated charts differently than the Jagannatha Hora and AstroSage programs he'd been using.
As I immediately knew, neither Jagannatha Hora nor AstroSage have trustworthy time change atlases built in, and both had again miscalculated many charts and he hadn't realized that. Another astrologer hadn't updated their top level astrology program for years, and so was using an out-of-date atlas when she could have updated just the atlas for free on the company's website, and then had all of the fixes and improvements incorporated into her program. Finally, most free programs and almost all Vedic programs written in India miscalculate charts because they lack accurate time zones and time changes.
Note: You can test your software's accuracy here. So please : Don't rely on any program that you've had for 15 years or more, and please update your program or at least the atlas every time an update becomes available. Astrology is a powerful and sacred art, and we need the best and most accurate tools if we are to serve the art, and our clients, properly. It actually gave me chills! What a privilege to live in an era where we can watch a film taken by a spacecraft orbiting Pluto.
Monday, July 24, A Journey into The World of Oudh: Part Ten Those of you who regularly visit this column are aware of my explorations in aromatherapy and the mystically potent essential oil known as Oudh or agarwood oil. I have just added a new page to my Oudh articles here , about a phenomenal set of new oils that I've found. Sunday, July 16, How to evaluate Essential Oils I have added another page to my blog on essential oils , exploring the attributes of the best oils, and the ways to evaluate essential oil companies.
You can read the new page here. Wednesday, July 12, What astrology software can't do People just discovering astrology software often ask me questions like: " Please help me find an astrology program that can accurately predict upcoming events in the World " or " What program can tell me the best times to invest? At most, they can analyze the astrological factors programmed into them by an astrologer. Astrology programs are severely limited in the number of factors that they can take into account, and have no "sense of proportion" about which factors are the most important and will predominate in their influence.
Since even the very best professional astrologers often go wrong in their predictions -- e. Astrology programs that delineate the future cycles and events and their impact on a person's life never take into account that person's birth chart I. And so I wish to remind beginners that the best use of astrology software is for its ability to calculate and display charts, graphs, tables, and maps that would be difficult or even impossible for most people to prepare by hand. And that when software ventures into the realm of interpretation and prediction, everything has to be taken with a huge boulder of salt.
It's not that there is no value in these efforts, but they are very, very general and more likely not to occur or be accurate than to do so. Wednesday, July 5, An amazing set of astronomy videos on the planets I was looking at the latest images from the Juno space probe circling Jupiter right now it's halfway through its mission and stumbled upon a video maker who has created an amazing collection of planetary videos. His pen name is Astrum, and his new Jupiter movie is here and is stunning.
You can visit a his video page and choose from movies that focus on planets, galaxies, asteroids, and more. I am very impressed with his work. Sunday, June 4, The Wonders of Jupiter updated As astrologers and astronomers know, Jupiter is the largest planet, and emits more energy than it gets from the Sun. If you combined six Jupiters, fusion would start and it would become a star. Astrologically, Jupiter represents the virtues of wisdom, faith, generosity, positivity, stability, working well within the system, and blessings. Its shadow qualities include excess, greed, over-optimism, over-indulgence, and overdoing in general.
NASA's Juno spacecraft is currently orbiting Jupiter and every 53 days gets close enough to take lovely photos of the planet and provide new and amazing insights about it. These report writers can run by themselves, or within Solar Fire, and you are fully licensed to sell the reports that they produce. You can see which ones I recommend most, and view samples off all of the reports, here.
Monday, May 15, Blending Vedic and Western Astrologies -- Revisited I just wrote my most comprehensive article on the ways that you can and cannot effectively blend Western and Vedic astrological approaches. I included a short analysis of Donald Trump's chart using some of these insights. You can read it here and I hope you enjoy it. Wednesday, May 10, What kind of device do you need to run astrology software?
One of the most frequent questions that I get asked is "Can I run Solar Fire or another astrology program on my device? What many newcomers don't understand is that astrology programs are written for one operating system. That's why so many astrologers who own Mac computers install Windows and Parallels on their Macs, so that they can run the astrology programs that they need. To say it another way, most astrology programs won't run on Macs, or iPads, or Chromebooks, or Android tables, or Amazon Fire tablets.
Astrology and Horoscope Lite
And that's why it is so important to think about what software you want to be able to run before you purchase a computer or tablet. A very few programs will run on multiple platforms, and in the future, more will follow. But for the time being, it's wisest to get a Windows PC or Mac with Windows installed on it for astrological work. Wednesday, May 3, Windows 10 S a disaster in the making Six years ago, Microsoft released a crippled version of Windows called Windows RT that couldn't run any astrology programs, nor most Windows programs except ones specifically created for it.
grahamalika yoga horoscope
Windows RT eventually died a slow, painful death, cost users and Microsoft millions, and was one of Microsoft's biggest mistakes. Just like Windows RT, it won't be able to run any Windows programs except those sold at the Windows store , so almost all Windows programs, including all astrology programs, won't run on it. Avoid Windows 10 S computers like the plague! They may be less expensive than other Windows PCs, but they're completely useless to all astrologers.
Shame on Microsoft for once again ignoring all of the suffering and expense they will be causing their customers. If you want to read more on this topic, a well-written computer article on this issue is here. The footage and photos will be amazing. As we wait, here's a video of four days in the life of Saturn. Sunday, April 16, More on Regulus Platinum 8 Juan Saba has done an excellent job of adding features and enhancements to his Regulus Platinum Professional version 8.
In exploring it recently, I found it even more capable than I imagined. You can read about the update here. It is therefore at its brightest and biggest I. Because of its size and brightness, the Hubble Telescope crew have just released a great new photograph of Jupiter here and a fascinating new video here. I enjoyed both very much and hope you do too. As my regular readers know, I have been exploring the world of aromatherapy over the last several years, and especially the magical oil known as Oud or agarwood oil.
You can read the latest page here , or start at the beginning of the blog here. My new article addresses this and other themes here.
All of these pages also include or give links to my view on which are the best. You can see the image with notations here , and without notations here. Friday, February 17, The importance of keeping your astrology software up-to-date Most astrologers are very happy owning older versions of their favorite astrology software, and rarely upgrade to newer releases unless their computer crashes and they have lost their old program disks; or can't install the old version due to changes in the operating system. But what they fail to realize is that the new versions of their programs have very important and essential capabilities besides the new and improved features.
These include: Atlas updates. Over the past few years, the time-change atlases built into most programs have had many errors fixed. That means that older software may, in fact, miscalculate some charts. Bug fixes. One thing that inspired this article is an experience I had recently. I was calculating a transit graph and noticed that many major events were left out. Once I upgraded my software to the latest version, the problem disappeared.
Similarly, older versions of many programs had software glitches that actually crashed the program. Over time, most of these have been resolved. Older software is likely to run into compatibility issues not only with Windows 10 and the latest Mac OS, but also with other software installed on the computer.
User Interface. Software companies also continue to improve the user interface of their programs, I. And all of these are in addition to all of the many enhancements of older features, and the added new capabilities. Fortunately, upgrades from most companies cost much less than the original price of the software.
So if you are using a program that is over 5 years old, I heartily encourage you to consider updating it. The book is a delight to read and has been out of print for decades, but has recently be re-released as an ebook which you can get here. The Smashwords website even allows you to preview the first fifth of the book for free online or on your ereader or mobile device, to see if you like it.
Give it a try, I promise that you've never seen the planets written about in this way. Regulus has been updated incredibly frequently, and each update is very valuable. Learn about the new version here. Ernst Wilhelm continues to improve the current features and add new ones too. His students will be especially pleased with the latest software update. This article is a must-read for all astrologers.
It shows which techniques are completely dependent upon a precise birth time and which are not. Friday, December 30, The Far side of the Moon To quote their website: Because the Moon is tidally locked, it was not until that the farside was first imaged by the Soviet Luna 3 spacecraft hence the Russian names for prominent farside features, such as Mare Moscoviense. A different world from what we saw from Earth. The Clementine mission obtained beautiful mosaics with the sun high in the sky low phase angles , but did not have the opportunity to observe the farside at sun angles favorable for seeing surface topography.
This WAC mosaic provides the most complete look at the morphology of the farside to date, and will provide a valuable resource for the scientific community. And it's simply a spectacular sight! You can see stunning pictures of the Lunar far side and near side here. Happy New Year! Thank you, Astrolabe staff, very much.

May they serve you. Since I've been reviewing and helping companies develop their programs for almost 40 years, I have witnessed the development and evolution of all of the major programs too. Some programs remain static for a decade or more, and when new versions are released, only minor changes have occurred.
But other programs are carefully enhanced, with new features added regularly. The astrological implications of this event, and those born during it, are likely to be profound. Tuesday, September 20, Running Solar Fire on a Mac Many astrologers purchase Mac computers because of the greater ease-of-use of Macs, and the greater safety from malware. But there are very few Mac-native astrology programs, and so many Mac owners choose to install Windows on their Macs, in order to run PC astrology programs.
The program of choice for most Mac owners is Solar Fire, both because it has the most Mac-like interface even more than some Mac-native programs , and because it is much more powerful than any Mac-native program. Esoteric the creator of Solar Fire offers detailed information on installing Solar Fire on a Mac here , and Astrolabe the worldwide purveyor of Solar Fire has instructions here , and important problem-solving information here.

I've also received feedback from hundreds of astrologers about their challenges with particular programs. You can even download the files in. Tuesday, August 9, Amazing video of Mars at Opposition As astronomers and astrologers know, a planet in orbit beyond the Earth is visibly largest at opposition.

Wednesday, May 4, Getting your astrology software to work with Windows 10 Windows 10 is, as most people know, a very major change from Windows 7, and requires more maintenance than Windows 7 does. There are frequent updates, and when Windows gives you the option of delaying the installation of those updates, and you do delay installing them, problems can occur. For instance, you might click on the icon for your astrology program and nothing happens. If so, reboot and let Windows 10 install all of the updates to itself that it wants to. Also, it's always a good idea, after first installing a program under Windows 10, to reboot, so the changes are integrated into Windows.

Tuesday, April 5, Rising Cost of Astrology Software When Cosmic Patterns significantly updated Kepler many years ago and rebranded it as Sirius and more than doubled its price, the company began a pattern that is now bearing fruit elsewhere.
