A brand new upgrade, Janus 5 is available for sale and a reasonable price for a big full astrology program. The link is below and I suggest looking at the screen shot of the new features. Looks great and FYI I have no financial interest in the company or the program. I do like it though. Check it out. They offer a 30 day free trial. Current Janus users can upgrade for a very reasonable price.

Well I upgraded to Janus 5 and it stopped my study of Jyotish and Bazi for a period. I had so much fun with it and love the new look. Much cleaner and faster. Wonderful page designer module with the Medieval and Greek square charts added. Nice graphic menus and a full Calendar program giving all the raw data etc. The old standards are there though but with more goodies and better well thought out means of saving or pasting images of both pages and wheels. They even have a simple Vedic module with all the usual Ayanamsha and the Vimshottari Dashas. Still haven't comprehended all the stuff yet but a great job! Thumbs up

Sadly Janus 5 doesn't work for me and I've uninstalled it to stick with Janus 4.

I was very disappointed that there are far fewer asteroids in Janus 5. I work with minor named asteroids a la Jacob Schwartz and wanted more asteroids not fewer !

I also work extensively with fixed stars and there seem to be fewer of these also. Certainly no increase.

The only advantage to me personally was that you can now use Galactic Centre 0 degrees for sidereal charts but I would lose too much to upgrade just for that.

I didn't investigate much further after finding so few asteroids and fixed stars which are the mainstay of my work. It would be a retrograde step for me.

Thanks Tom,

I have used Solar Fire as my main software for well over a decade and upgraded a couple of times. I am wondering if another generic astrology programme like Janus offers anything I am missing out on with SF?
