It's been over 7 months since anybody's posted to this thread. However, the past 7 months have featured improvements in astrology software, such as new releases of Astrolog (7.00 and 7.10). Astrolog at http://www.astrolog.org/astrolog.htm has been available since 1991, however it's latest versions offer a wide variety of classic and modern features, for example:

Hello everyone,

I need some help. I'm looking for an astrology software to use on my PC that has all the cities of the world (like on astrodient) but also the option to enter the latitude and longitude without having to pick a location. Is anything like this available?

Also, I prefer downloadable sofware. I don't want to wait for shipment (I wonder what in my chart makes me so impatient :D). A pretty interface would be great too 8) .

I do not know what the rules are concerning publishing the names of software on the forum. If it is not ok to publish them here, please p.m. me.

Thanks.

You can once use Astroyogi Application I am using too. Astrology app with chat with astrologer feature in it.
They have also iOS version Astroyogi Online astrology app

Anybody got anything good free for an iMac?
Astrolog is free, and has a Mac version (along with Windows and Linux versions). :) The pre-compiled Mac version of Astrolog is for Intel chips, which modern iMacs have. There's no iPhone mobile version of Astrolog yet, but the Web versions of Astrolog will run in any browser.

Note that the Mac version of Astrolog has a command line interface, which (although powerful and can access every Astrolog chart and setting) isn't the GUI that casual Mac users expect. Still, if you want more information about Mac Astrolog and how to install it, see: http://astronomicon.co/en/download-astrolog-for-macos-with-x11-graphics/

Re: janus 4

Now is the time to download the 30 days free trial version of Janus 4, the new version of Janus, available now (since December). I totally loved Janus 3, I thought it's perfect, but Janus 4 gives even more.

Agree, I have tried many kinds of software but Janus is hands down the best. I also met the creators of this software many, many moons ago & can vouch for their expertise. In fact they were planning & creating this computer astrology software before we all had access to technology, because as great astrologers they already had foreseen it.

I've been using Janus for 20 years now (I have SolarFire and a few others too!) but Janus is my go to and the one I use everyday. It's the only program that allows you to turn the chart which I find incredibly useful. It's at version 5.5 now and there are a few things about it's layout now I don't like but it's still my favourite!

"Turn the chart" means to rotate houses so that the 1st house becomes (for example) the original 3rd house. It's a technique often used in Horary astrology, and I agree quality astrology programs should support it. Astrolog allows you to do this as well, and you can turn the chart in several different ways. :) For example, in the above animation:

  • Upper left corner: Original chart.
  • Upper right corner: Turning the signs. (Only the signs are rotating, while planets and houses stay the same.) This is done by changing Astrolog's "Zodiac Offset / Ayanamsa" setting. In addition to sidereal astrology, this setting can be used for things like adding 180 degrees to positions of charts in the southern hemisphere, which some have suggested should be done.
  • Lower left corner: Turning the wheel. (The entire wheel is rotating.) This is done by changing Astrolog's "Wheel Chart Rotation" graphics setting. For example, usually the Ascendant is always on the left edge of the wheel, but some might prefer the MC to be on the top edge of the wheel.
  • Lower right corner: Turning the houses. (The house wheel is rotating, however since the 1st house is always on the left edge, it looks like both the signs and planets are rotating instead.) This is the standard Horary method of "turning the chart". To do this, change Astrolog's "Solar Chart Setting" to move (for example) the 3rd house to the location of the 1st house.

Thanks for the advice! I'm also looking for astrology software for my Mac. I was thinking about solar fire, but I'm going to try astrolog.


Edit Feb 2022 update: My best friend is now using astrolog (free software), he's a software engineer and is very impressed by the software and all the possibilities. I decided to use Astro Gold for Mac, I'm not the most technical person, so for me Astro gold was the best decision. Truly happy with my choice! Astro gold costs 200 US dollar after using 15% discount from the astrology podcast.
