Hi - this is module is now ready for release:

Horoscope-Various-Domitude: v.2.08 - initial release

This module is an introduction to domitude, a method of analysing the positions of planets placed in the diurnal circle.

The method looks beyond the placement of planets in the zodiac using longitude positions, to take account of the celestial latitude and declination of planets.

For more information, see:,37.0.html

For a critical appraisal of the method see:

Hi there - this module is due for release today. Please download the update to get this module within Planetdance.

Horoscope-Extra-Tyl Chart Synthesis: v.1.111 - initial release.

From the Help:

This module is designed to replicate the chart analysis and synthesis methods of the late US astrologer Noel Tyl. Tyl was active in astrology from the late 1960s until his death in December 2019. Noel Tyl described himself as a 'humanistic' astrologer, and his work is inspired by a number of the key astrologers of the twentieth century including Dane Rudhyar, Reinhold Ebertin and John Addey. Tyl was also inspired by the humanistic psychology and psychotherapy movement pioneered by Carl Rogers.

Tyl's principle philosophical inspiration came from Dane Rudhyar, the French-American astrologer who published the key text, The Astrology of Personality, in 1936. Rudhyar's inspiration came, in turn, from Theosophy and the work of Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey. This stream of thought also underpinned Alan Leo's reformulation of astrology in the early twentieth century.

Tyl integrated some of Ebertin's methods into his work including midpoints, use of the cardinal axes (Aries point), hard aspects (conjunction, square and opposition) and solar arc directions. However Tyl used a conventional house system (Placidus) and did not make use of Cosmobiology's dial system.

Tyl introduced few innovations of his own but did popularise the use of the 'quindecile' aspect, being an angle of 165 degrees.

Tyl published many books, including the 1000 page compendium of methods Synthesis and Counselling in Astrology: The Professional Manual.

Main Screen - this module is based on an embedded window. Opening the module will use the current horoscope to calculate and display a tri-wheel. The inner wheel shows the natal chart; the middle wheel shows the directed/progressed chart; the outer wheel shows the current transits. The directions, progressions and transits are based on the date shown in the top right hand corner of the window.

A range of additional positions can be shown outside the wheel. These include the current solar return, the antisicia positions and a selection of fixed stars. On the outside of the tri-wheel, the 'solarscope' can also be displayed. This is essentially a chart drawn with the Sun's degree being the cusp of the first equal house.

Hi Jeremy - tidying up nicely. Ed

Hi Jeremy - no problem. I will keep you up to date with developments here. Now the underlying algorithm is worked out the rest should be fairly easy.

Hi Jeremy - I think I've got it. See screenshot.

In the end the algorithms looked like this:

` q1
      if (normalize(-ramc + RA) <= 90)
         r = 270 + (90 * (normalize(-ramc + RA - 360)) / dsa);
      ` q2
      if (normalize(-ramc + RA) >= 270)
         r = 270 - (90 * ((360 - normalize(-ramc + RA)) / dsa);
      ` q3
      if (normalize(-ramc + RA) > 180 && normalize(-ramc + RA) < 270)
         r = 90 + (90 * (normalize(-ramc + RA - 180)) / nsa);
      ` q4
      if (normalize(-ramc + RA) > 90 && normalize(-ramc + RA) < 180)
         r = 90 - (90 * ((180 - normalize(-ramc + RA)) / nsa));

These look different to the published versions, but I couldn't get those to work. There's a few minutes of arc difference, but the underlying data is slightly different so this is to be expected.

Best wishes. Ed

Thanks Jeremy - that's very helpful. I should be able to check that the basic data is the same with these listings. Ed

Hi again - is there a chance you could post any data listings from your software that is associated with these charts, eg. planetary longitude, declination, latitude and right ascension. It would be helpful to check that PD and your alternative software are using the same basic data.

Thanks. Ed

Hi - it would be helpful to have a couple more examples. If you add them as screenshots and I can take a look at them. Ed

Hi Jeremy - I've started looking at the domitude chart. This screen shot shows an early prototype. The positions in Q1 and Q3 seem right, but the positions for Petit in Q2 and Q4 are not correct. I'll keep looking at it. One thing that's a bit unclear to me is the logic for determining which quadrant planets are in, taking account of latitude and declination. I think once I've worked this out it should be ok. Ed
