Yes, thank you!

Planetdance for windows / Calculation mismatch
« on: May 01, 2023, 08:03:36 PM »
I'm trying to input the following chart of emperor Vespasian, but for the given date my Planetdance calculates an Aries Moon, instead of the Taurus one calculated by Astro and by me with the use of an other software. In fact in Planetdance that Taurus Moon can be achieved only if one moves his birthday from November 17 to 19. I also checked Stellarium and the mistake is obviously in my Planetdance. Can you please check this one out? Also before you ask I updated my Planetdance just in case there was a glitch from me missing an update.

Exactly my issue. One hour is a lot of difference. Thanks in any case.

Hi Jean, can I ask were do you get this data from? I have two charts, especially one, where I would really like to know if there was summer time, one is 1972 September 6, Hungary, and the other one is 1978 April 16 Romania. I'm asking this because I looked through Wikipedia pages and the data I found is very conflicting. Both of these charts depend on an official record from the hospital, so whether on not there was a summer time in these years in these countries matters a lot.
Thanks in advance. I just hate uncertainty, lol.

Thank you for considering it!

Hi Jean and everyone, I made this recommendation some time ago about the possibility of adding the Lot of Daemon and the Syzygy to the PPD module. If technically feasible, and you guys have the time and will, I believe this function would greatly enhance the value of this module, since these two are up there in importance with the other Predominators. Valens states that the Lots of Eros and Necessity, as calculated by him and not the Paulus or other variants, out of which one always acts as the Lot of Basis, are also relevant. But I for one would be happy to see the Lot of Daemon and the prenatal Syzygy in the PPD.
What are your thoughts on the subject?

It worked perfectly!  Thank you!

Hi Jean, yes it's the same error line for me every time I try a solar revolution. I've updated the program again and it still doesn't work. When it comes to the reset function you suggest: does that mean that all the changes I made in the colour scheme etc will be reset as well? Sice if that's the case I will not reset it. Also you asked me about some file times or something like that and to that I said that you will need to give me a step by step instruction where and how I can get those times for you, if you still need them.

Hi Jean, sorry for the late reply. When it comes to your request you will have to give me a step by step instruction in order for me to retrieve the data you need since I literally have no idea what you are talking about but I can probably follow your instruction.

Hi Jean, the update didn't work.

I don't know about others, but for me this issue is still on.

Thank you Jean! Now it works. I'm extremely happy!

Hi both, I've tried downloading the ephemerides but the error code remains the same, unfortunately. The chart I'm checking right now as I said is that of Jacob Grimm, 04, January, 1785 22:30 LMT, Hanau am Main, Germany. Thanks for taking the time to check it. And feel better!

Hi Ed,
I don't know about others but I'm highly appreciative of the changes you guys made to this part of planetdance. Since I use this technique not only for predictions but to better understand how the different elements in a chart actually express themselves in events, especially when they meet the pivotal degrees, but also when they meet the Moon, the Sun and the Lot of Fortune. I have a few remarks although I'm not sure any of them would be possible under the constrains of the coding and data you work with.
First I would be happy if other important releasers could be included, especially the Lot of Daemon and the Syzygy.  I use both when it comes to longevity issues, I use the Lot of Daemon for career etc and the Syzygy for wealth and health etc. And if these changes are possible then perhaps also consider the Lot of Eros, Necessity and whoever becomes of the two the Lot of Basis, all three as defined by Valens. All of these three indicate powerful 'psychological' needs that create favourable or destructive outcomes, through our ability to attract and be attracted to things and people, our ability to reject and say no, and our resources in terms of building blocks and ability to create and maintain stability in life. Aspects to these lots, etc, including Direction are important not only in Valens' reading but my own experience as well.
And I have a question, ever since you introduced these changes, or perhaps a bit later, every time I try to use this module to create the Directions chart of someone born something like 200 years ago, or perhaps a bit older, will fail to produce any results and an error message pops out: "Invalid math argument tan line 2037". I'm not sure if this is an issue for others perhaps it isn't or most people simply don't use these Directions in relationships with folk that lived two centuries or more ago, but in my case this is an issue with any chart that is old enough. It works perfectly fine down until sometime in the 19th century and then it doesn't. I get the same message with any older than that chart but let's say that here I was trying to check the Directions in Jacob Grimm's chart.
Thanks in advance.

I'm glad I could help!
If you would consider my advice I would also recommend changing the daytime visibility of the planets.
There are two planets and the Moon that are visible during the daytime, of these Venus and the Moon are visible during high-noon as well. These are the rules that should stand true for the most part for these three.

Moon: when the Moon is about 30 degrees removed from the Sun it appears to us as a slim crescent that is easy to observe with the naked eye either before sunrise or after sunset, but, it is actually visible during the entire day as long as it is above the horizon with about +2 degrees and the sky is clear.
The reason you need those 30 degrees or so in elongation from the Sun is in order to easily observe it, due to the light saturation around the Sun and the fact that bellow that elongation the crescent is really thin against the bright daytime sky. 

Venus is also visible during the entire day time, but this is especially true when she is occidental and helically setting as an evening star at the same time and when she is oriental and helically rising as a morning star at the same time. More precisely, when she is helically setting as an evening star from when she reaches the 45 degrees on her way towards the sun down to when she is 30 degrees removed from the Sun still as an evening star. Within this 15 degrees window her apparent size and brightness are both large enough to make her easy to see during the daytime. As long as her altitude above the horizon does not fall bellow +5 degrees. Equally when she helically rises as a morning star, form when she is 30 degrees moving away from the sun in longitude up to when she is 45 degrees away (but still helically rising) she is visible during the day time, again in terms of her minimum altitude the same +5 degrees above the horizon applies.

Jupiter is also visible during the day, but only shorty after sunrise and shortly before sunset at times when he is at his perihelion, while being removed in longitude from the Sun by about 90 degrees.
The rule is the following.
Jupiter oriental in Pisces, when the Sun is in Gemini, and the Sun is not more than +3 degrees above the horizon after sunrise.
Jupiter oriental in Aries, the Sun in Cancer, and -//-
Jupiter occidental in Pisces, when the Sun is in Sagittarius, and the Sun is not more than +3 degrees above the horizon before sunset.
Jupiter occidental in in Aries, the Sun in Capricorn, and -//-

And with Jupiter there is a special rule that makes him visible throughout the day while he is in the same signs and configuration to the Sun, as stated above, as long as he is conjunct the half-Moon within 7 degrees or so in longitude.
Then the rule is the following (and I'll just give one example that holds true for all four combinations detailed above):
Jupiter oriental in Pisces, when the Sun is in Gemini, the Moon within 7 degrees from Jupiter, and Jupiter above +10 degrees altitude.
The Moon in this case facilitates the location of Jupiter in the bright daytime sky and guides the eye. Without her you would not be able to locate him with the naked eye once the Sun has risen +3 degrees above the horizon.

Hope this helps.
For those of us that have diurnal charts this data set can actually be rather important.
