This little program is now incorporated into Curtis Manwaring's Delphic Oracle software. However, if you want a basic way to calculate zodiacal releasing this may be worth a look. You can find the link to the file here:

It is designed for Windows, but I have it running under Linux Mint 13 with the Cinnamon desktop and Wine 1.4 and it works fine. A very handy little program!

Thanks for the mention. I'd advise staying away from the Tucows archive because someone recently downloaded from there and it had some sort of malware attached. When I tried the same, my Norton 360 quarantined it. So you should try:

This one seems clean for now but as with all software that's been in the wild for a long time (over 18 years now), you should inspect it with virus software to make sure that it's clean.

This one works but I do remember you mentioning something about the 3rd or 4th level sub divisions.

PD

The 4th level division goes into hours of the day. This will affect all developers who strive for accuracy because if someone was born during summer time and the listing goes into winter, the winter hours will typically be one hour off. I worked around this issue by converting all times to UTC in Delphic Oracle, but not in this earlier program. I didn't think it worth doing a time zone lookup for the birth location for every instance (that would have slowed down calculation), especially since time zone history is much more chaotic than most astrologers seem to realize and it would misleadingly imply greater accuracy than can be reasonably expected (something that most other software already does with time zones but shouldn't). The same issues would have to be confronted with any time lord system that goes down to the level of hours of the day (such as daily profections).

I've listed the times for 3rd level divisions as well, but because the time scale is typically in the several weeks to months range, the bulk of the period is accurately represented.

I just posted a Mac OS version of the freeware zodiacal releasing program on my downloads page:

I first released the windows version back in 1997, but it's been updated with familiar Mac controls.
