Asteroid aspects bug
« on: May 21, 2023, 11:46:05 PM »
The Horoscope ➞ Extra ➞ Asteroids view doesn't show some lesser used aspects between a planet and asteroid, even when one has selected them to be shown and they are within the orb.

Background: We are using Elliott Smith's birth chart. Astrodienst calculates that there is a quintile between Saturn and 15760 Albion, and a semisquare (half-square) between Eris and the Moon. My own eyes agree with this.

I have also noticed similar missing aspects in my family members' charts, but I won't post their birth data for privacy reasons.

To reproduce:

Add asteroid 15760 Albion from Time ➞ Extra Asteroids.

Add the birth data to Planetdance. Open the radix chart.

Now open Horoscope ➞ Extra ➞ Asteroids. From there, set orb as 1. Select the quintile aspect to be shown. Select 015760 Albion, and possibly deselect other asteroids to make easier to see how the program handles Albion and its aspects.

Look at the aspect list in far right, and the chart wheel. The quintile between 015760 Albion and Saturn shows in neither. It should show at least in the aspect list.

Another example, again with Elliott Smith's birth chart. From Horoscope ➞ Extra ➞ Asteroids, set orb as 1. Select the half-square aspect to be shown. Select Eris, and possibly deselect other asteroids to make easier to see how the program handles Eris and its aspects.

Planetdance shows the semisquare (half-square) between Eris and the Moon neither in aspect listing nor the zodiac wheel.

Neither aspect shows even when you increase the orb to 2 degrees.

Fixed, thanks.
- Horoscope - Extra - Asteroids did not show all aspects.
- Fixed Horoscope - Extra - Asteroids crashing if no asteroids were selected.
