My pleasure! I'm glad if I could help.
There are more specific rules but those would be probably difficult to implement in terms of coding.
I can give you guys a few examples just as a curiosity.
Venus is much brighter when she helically rises as a morning start and when she sets as an evening star compared to when she sets as a morning start and when she rises as an evening star. That is, Venus is much brighter at inferior conjunction than at superior conjunction, as such her heliacal rise and setting around this time happens earlier and later than when she is close to her superior conjunction (in terms of altitude difference between her and the sun).
Mercury is much much much brighter at superior conjunction than at the inferior one, which naturally reduces the difference between him and the sun in terms of altitude needed for him to be visible at superior conjunction.
The Moon is larger and brighter at perigee.
Mars is rather dim and small in terms of apparent diameter (as small as Uranos and Mercury) as he gets closer to the sun with a difference of a 60 degrees in longitude or so, so that's why he needs that rather large difference in altitude between him and the sun to be barely visible. Except once ever 15 or 17 years when he is at his perigee (or more precisely perihelion) and then he is slightly easier to observe as he rises in the morning or just before he sets in the evening.
Saturn's apparent diameter and apparent magnitude varies based on two factors, his closeness to the sun and earth and his rings. He will rise earlier from the sunlight and set later when he is around Gemini, that's when he is at his brightens. He will rise later and set earlier when he is around Virgo and across from her in Pisces. When he is around the end of Sagittarius he is between these two.
Uranos and Neptune's magnitude and apparent size varies less, but both are naturally easier to observe at their perihelion.

I don't know if it helps, probably not, but I use only the sign-house system for the 12 places from the horoscope.

Hi Jean,
I don't remember it. It was a few months ago, and then I tried a few times, then gave up on it, and then I tried again like a few weeks ago and since then it works perfectly fine.

Yes, the exacts same error message, with a difference in the line number: "Array our of bound: housePosArray Line 1190"

Yes, I think I will simply have to wait for the program to debug itself in one of the next updates, as it did with the Relocation function. And if it fails to do so I will reinstall it eventually altogether. I've tried the most recent update and it still fails to open this window altogether. Thanks in any case.

Hi there. I'm an amateur 'astronomer' and there is a very easy rule that can be employed with both planets and the sun. And the same goes for all the others. You hinted at it in your last comment. And it all relates to the Apparent Magnitude of a planet when close to the sun, and their height above or below the horizon in terms of altitude.
I'll just give a list and then you will decide if it works for you. This is based on my observations and the literature I reviewed on the subject when I educated myself about observing the night sky.
The dawn and dusk has three phases, and they all depend on the negative altitude of the Sun,
The indigo hours, where the Sun is -18 degrees below the horizon (they begin then), the blue hours when he is -12 degrees below, and the golden hors when he is -6 degrees below the horizon. For all planets to be observable without interference from trees and such it is desirable for them to be at at least +2 degrees altitude. Now depending on their apparent magnitude we can construct a list that will hold generally true (with some variation) across the year and longer planetary cycles.
And this is the list:
Moon: she above the horizon +2 degrees the sun below the horizon -4 degrees.
Venus: +2, the sun -4
Jupiter: +2, sun -5
Mercury: +2, the sun -7.5 (in the case of Mercury it actually ranges between -6 and -9 depending on the solar phase).
Saturn: +2, sun -8
Mars: +2, sun -9
Uranos: +10, sun -12
Neptune: +12, sun -18 (theoretical, based on the Bortle scale which allows for true keen eyes and exceptional sky viewing locations to observe Neptune with the naked eye, with limits pushed to apparent magnitude +8.5 or so).

As you can see this list allows for the brightest objects, the crescent moon, and Venus to be observed helically rising or setting in the golden hours, along with Jupiter, especially when he is in his perigee. The next triad, Mercury and Saturn and Mars to be observed in the blue hours, and in the case of Uranos the limit is the indigo hours and for Neptune the limit is the indigo hour itself.

If you use the altitude of the sun and the object in question as a basis for being under the rays and the helical rising and setting, it's much more realistic than the simple ecliptic longitude rule which can be cheated drastically by the inclination of the ecliptic and the ecliptic latitude of the object in question.

Hi to both of you, and thanks for the reply, I can give you a chart example data, but as I said in my last message, I get the exact same issue irrespective of the chart data that I use (for example if I use the current transit data under the Startup function, or with any other chart I have in my library). This is not the first time that a module or submodule becomes inaccessible to me, some months ago I couldn't use the Relocation function at all after an update (under the Horoscope/Extra heading), and then after months now I can again, back then I didn't say anything because that function I use less than the one reported in this post. So here is a chart data that I check often enough, 1982, 03, 01, 14:00 Arad Romania. Take care.

Hi there, thanks for looking into it. I don't know what you mean by 'chart detail' in this case. As I stated in my original comment every time I want to use this function of the program, independent of the chart that I use, the Ed Greek Horoscope page will simply not open. So basically that function of the program has become inaccessible to me. I can open all the other functions under the Horoscope/Classical module starting from Calendar all the way to Zodiacal Releasing, with the exception of Ed Greek Horoscope. I guess if I deinstal the program all-together and then re-instal it, that would probably fix the issue, but I was hoping for an other fix. In any case updating it won't help. I've tried that several tiles over the past weeks.

For a few weeks now when I try to open the Ed Greek Horoscope page in the Horoscope Classical module I get only an error message: "Array our of bound: housePosArray Line 1186". I've tried to update the program several times since then, hoping the problem would resolve itself, but to no avail.
