Planetdance for windows / Re: Azimuth
« on: August 13, 2020, 07:20:13 PM »
Hi Harry - thanks for using the forum. The strict astronomical definition of azimuth is "the bearing of an object measured as an angle round the horizon eastwards starting from north as the zero point." Mitton, The Penguin Dictionary of Astronomy. Your point is well made. In the script Horoscope-Extra-Local Horizon Horoscope you will see the convention is adopted. This measurement is latitude dependent, so a southern hemisphere horoscope should show 0 degrees for the MC, as far as I know.

I wonder if Jean could have a switch to allow people to choose either definition. Some astrologers are rather wedded to the idea that azimuth is measured from the south point of the horizon. I'm not really sure why.

Best wishes. Ed

Hi - the release is getting close. I've had some delays and bugs to fix but everything seems to be sorted out now. Final testing before the weekend and then release.

Hi there - I think you are referring to the option to put a table of dignities in the main window using the Options, Extra, Column tab function. Could you confirm this, or are you referring to a particular traditional/classical module within the Horoscope menu.

Thanks for the positive feedback.

All the best. Ed

Thanks Sindy. It's a good development of this script. I'm still working on the medieval module. It's proved rather complex! I hope it won't be too long until I can release it.

All the best. Ed

Classic, Medieval, Vedic / Circumambulation through the Bounds Module
« on: July 24, 2020, 07:27:07 PM »
Hi there - update your software to include the latest version of the Circumambulation through the Bounds module:

Horoscope - Classical - Circumambulation through the Bounds: v. 1.51 - now includes choice of four bounds and one deg or naibod arc, helpfile improved and updated

From the Helpfile:

This module is designed to complement the Hellenistic, medieval and early modern period astrology modules in Planetdance.

The module calculates a list of primary directions of the ascendant through the bounds according to the method of Ptolemy. The Ptolemaic key may be used - one year of life for each degree that passes the midheaven. Alternatively the naibod key may be used which is 59 minutes, 8 seconds of arc per annum, which is equivalent to the average daily motion of the Sun.

The list of directions represents the rising of the bounds across the horizon for a period of hours after the birth. The algorithm converts this into equivalent years. Calculations are provided for up to 120 years of human life.

All directions are calculated 'in zodiaco'. This means that the bound cusp positions are taken to be the zodiacal degree (without latitude). However, the declination of the degree occupied by the bound cusp means that the time taken for the aspect to form may be more or less than number of ecliptic degrees between the two points suggests.

Primary directions are a very time sensitive method of forecasting. If the birthtime is inaccurate by four minutes, the directions to the angles will be out by +/- year.

The method may be used to rectify a chart where the birth time is accurately known. However, if the birthtime is not accurately known, alternative methods of forecasting should be preferred.

For further reference, please see Martin Gansten (2009) Primary Directions: Astrology's Old Master Technique. The Wessex Astrologer, Bournemouth.

All algorithms are adapted from Gansten's book.

The text used for the list of directions may be enlarged or reduced by right-clicking in the text frame and selecting fontsize+ or fontsize-.

Hi there - I think I've finally got this working - annual directions of the ascendant through the bounds.

Hi - some delays on the final stages of this script. However here is some sample input on directions of the MC through the bounds over the course of the solar return year. The script will include the same for the directed ascendant. Ed
