Turning a chart

Hello,

Is there a free software that can do this?

Meaning if I want to make my 10th house my first, how can I do this? Do I have to print out my chart and physically just turn it... I know I can do this but I've seen turned charts online and I wondered if there was a free astrology software that I could use.

Thanks!

You don't need software to turn a chart (technically called "derived houses"). Say the 10th house is Aries. If you want to take the 10th as the first (e.g this may describe your mother as the 10th is the house of the mother), then Aries is H1, Taurus is H2, Gemini is H3, Cancer is H4 and so on. I use WHOLE SIGN HOUSES so there are no cusp complications.

No, but it would surely help.

Nope. Even with expensive software you can't. The best I can do is put one of the "7" on the Ascendant and read it from there (I have SolarFire).

I can't save charts as an image and then use something like Paint or a photoshop program to rotate the image 90° to put the Angles on the Ascendant.

Occasionally I print and turn, but mostly we all just do it like Mr. Stellium does, and if you don't know your Houses very well, you'll learn them.

The main reason I like to "physically" turn charts is to look at Arabic Parts and I don't want to over-look anything.

my question would be for what reason you are doing this?

Researching rulers of houses will help you understand more where I joining the dots so to speak
