None of the given possibilities. Why the limitation of programs?

I use a combination of Janus, Solar Fire 8, Delphic Oracle and Nova Chartwheels. They all have their strengths. Curtis's DO is beautifully programmed and covers fascinating classical techniques. SF8 has ease of use on its side. Janus is a unique combination of classical and modern routines. Nova Chartwheels has the best dials.

I relied extensively (in the past) on the IO Series for the Mac, but while studying and applying classical astrology for the last 15yrs or so, I installed virtual desktops and now I mix use of IO series with Mercurius, Delphic Oracle, and every now and then I take a peek at Solar Fire.
For what it matters, DO is the one I prefer, but I always have IO Sprite running on my desktop (which is a very flexible "astro-watch").

I always used Astrocalc. Since the early 80's.

Morinus (Trad and Modern) and Zet 9 Lite. I don't really have the budget for astrology software at the moment.

I can't recommend both Delphic Oracle and Porphyrius Magus enough. The former for its ease of use, its simplicity in presentation, the range of time-lord systems and the Primary Directions model; the latter for the fixed star modules and the planetary visiblity calculations.

Thanks Konrad! I've made the jump to cross platform so it is only a matter of time before I have native MacOSX, Android and iOS versions out. The whole field is moving in this direction and I expect that most other companies will have cross platform versions of their software out soon. It's no longer the major impediment that it used to be.

I look forward to this Curtis - I'm less concerned about the iOS and Android versions, but a MacOSX version would be greatly appreciated by a lot of people I think.

Yair Alon, like others, I find the list of options given in this poll here very much incomplete - I use a mixture of different softwares depending on what platform I am on and what I am looking to do. I use astro.com when online to draw up a quick chart, I use Morinus to quickly look at a primary direction (because it's available for Mac), and to do anything else, for anything else, particularly for things like zodiacal releasing or when I'm looking at a plethora of traditional techniques in tandem, then I'll use Delphic Oracle.

I think it would have been nice to have included Delphic Oracle in the poll, but really even then I would have wanted to click more than one box either way.

Janus for most work (60%)

Solar Fire for specialty techniques (20%)

Polaris for rectification and Topocentric Primary Directions (20%)
