Planetdance is an excellent program and deserves a larger primary direction module. It's good news that it's being planned for reconstruction.



Great news, even though I saw it belatedly. Is the update already out or still pending?

Hi - the update is now out. Martin Gansten has made some suggestions to improve the module, but nothing too fundamental. I haven't had time to implement these yet but download anyway and let me know what you think.

Best wishes. Ed

Astrolog's newest versions (i.e. version 7.20) offer versatile progression options. Thumbs up

Progression rate can be selected from a dropdown (to cover common types of progression such as primary, secondary, tertiary sidereal, and tertiary synodic) or a number manually typed in (to adjust these or experiment with new progression methods). Progression rate can be specified for planets and house cusps separately. Motion for planets and/or cusps can be uniform (e.g. solar arc or some other constant offset over time), or time equivalent (in which planets and/or house cusps are recalculated).

Astrolog also supports custom progression formulas. For example, A.T. Mann proposed a symbolical directions method which moves at a logarithmic rate, described in his books such as "The Round Art" and "A New Vision of Astrology". Logarithmic progressions mean motion is fast early in life, and continually slows down over time. The specific formula he uses is "Arc = Log10((Age/0.076661459)+10)*120-120". In Astrolog you can do this method of progression, by writing the progression formula in Astrolog's "AstroExpression" syntax. (The exact syntax to do this for A.T. Mann's method is an example given in the Astrolog documentation.)

Walter,

That makes your versatile software even more progressive! Very Happy
