  • Extended computer-generated interpretations of natal (birth), synastry (compatibility of two people), and transit (astrological forecast) charts
  • HTML-based help system
  • Open library of interpretation texts, with a convenient system for cataloging texts, and the ability to select from texts for a particular type of chart
  • Sabian symbols
  • Recall previously created charts instantly from the history list
  • Forecast up to 10 years ahead using a transit comparison with the natal chart, presented in graphical form
  • Facilities for an interactive space photo-album and mythological art gallery

  • Insonation of interpretation texts by speech synthesizer

2) For the professional astrologer:

  • Radix charts; single and dual charts (transits, synastry, various kinds of directions and progressions: solar, lunar, lunar phase, phase progression, progression of lunar...); any scale of progression and direction (including reverse); Primary Directions (with real movement of planets); Primary Directions using an oblique ascension at calculation direction angle between promissor and signifocator, are considered correct traditional method; Davison relationship charts; composite charts; coalescent charts; harmonic charts; Uranian 90 degree dial charts; Traditional Charts: some kinds of traditional (square) cards in the European medieval style and in several Indian styles.
  • Complex charts: more then two (up to 7) planet rings in one chart wheel

Thus there is a possibility to place on a chart simultaneously a several natals and a several adhered to everyone natal derivative charts. In particular, it is possible, for example, to look aspects of planets of a progression of one natal to planets of another natal, aspects of a progression of several events to one natal, etc. [more]
