Hi Ed and Jean,

Could I request that you add a monthly and daily profections option that is based on the length of the solar revolution month? In essence, I would very much like to be able to follow Abu Mashar and the Perso-Arabic/Tajika Indian authors in this.

The first monthly solar revolution (MSR) chart is always the SR chart itself. Following Abu Mashar, each of the next MSR starts when the Sun transits exactly by 30 degrees forward. We erect a chart for this moment and its Asc degree and minute is the MSR Asc.

As an example, I have attached the chart of Mel Gibson (3 Jan 1956 at 4.45 pm in Peeksville, New York, USA, Asc 14.59 Can), his 2023 SR (Asc 2.31 Lib) and the 9th monthly solar revolution of the 2023 SR (5 Sep 2023 at 3.41.17 am - Asc 9.33 Leo)

The Sun in Mel Gibson's chart is at 12.30.16 Cap. Therefore, every year his 2nd MSR will begin when the Sun reaches 12.30.16 Aqu. The 3rd MSR will begin when the Sun reaches 12.30.16 Pis, the 4th MSR will begin wheh the Sun reaches 12.30.16 Ari, and so on for the rest of the months.

The tricky part here is that the length of the months differs due to the speed of the Sun and the natal location. For example, Gibson's 9th month starts on the 5th of Sep, not on the 2nd or 3rd. Hence, this will change the length of the 12th parts too. I know that Planetdance offers daily profections lasting 1 day, which is also a traditional option. However, I would like to have the "2.5 day" daily ones. Again, the length of the latter will depend on the length of the month divided by 12 and thus they will not be strictly 2.5 days per sign. This may not seem that much of a difference, but it actually becomes such over the course of the year as deviations occur that are up to a few days, which is longer than the ingress of the Moon in a given sign/house.

I know you said you are very busy right now with your paid job, Ed, and I don't know whether what I am requesting is difficult to program. It is just no other software that I know of offers these specific traditional monthly and daily profections. Thank you for your consideration.

HI Zagata - thanks for the suggestion. I've been thinking about your ideas. I have some thoughts about how this could be done. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of time right now, but maybe the requests could be broken down into manageable steps.

I will keep you updated if I am able to do any development on this. Ed

Hi Zagata - this is work in progress. I have put the twelve monthly returns in a tabbed window. Let me know what you think. This is at the alpha testing stage, and needs further development.

Thanks. Ed

Hi Ed,

I love how you have created it. Not only will the Planetdance user be able to see all the 12 monthly charts side by side in different tabs, but I notice you have also included the nativity on the outside. This is great, thank you.

Hi Zagata - I think this is going to be the most I can do at the moment. It's probably the easiest bit. The searches for all the various possibilities are going to take quite a bit of working out.

Anyway, if you can test the module I'm going to email you it would be really helpful. Ed

Hi Ed,

I just tested the module with 2 separate nativities and checked the SRs and the 11 MSR. They all check out correctly.

I compared them with the Delphic Oracle software side by side. There is a difference of 3-4 astrological minutes in the MSR Asc minute, but that is perfectly fine.

Hi Zagata - thanks for letting me know about the accuracy. I'm glad these are checking out against other sources. I'm going to look at the 2.5 day option next.

The screenshot below shows the data summary tab with the planet positions and house cusps for each of the twelve charts, with the natal data for comparison.
