Hi Ed and Jean,

Abu Mashar places enormous importance on profections, including monthly ones. And Medieval astrologers like Schoener and others always looked where the profected Asc or Moon falls in the SR chart.

PlanetDance offers profections with the SR outside. I use this feature all the time. However, it is incomplete. I would very much like to have full profected and monthly profected charts in Medieval Forecasting Methods, with the user being able to save these charts and display them in a Bi Wheel or Tri Wheel.

Please take a look at the attached file Novak Djokovic nativity with full profections outside - 12th place year.

Starting with Novak Djokovic nativity with full profections outside - 12th place year (say 2022 in this case). All placements advance by 12 signs. By having such a full profection wheel with the nativity outside, the user will be able to immediately see that Mars hands over/distributes to the Sun this year; the Sun and Mercury hand over to Venus; Venus hands over to Jupiter and the Moon; Jupiter and the Moon hand over to the the Lot of Fortune, etc. It would be great to have an option of saving this wheel and displaying in in a Bi Wheel or Tri Wheel.

Next, monthly profections.

Please take a look at Novak Djokovic 12th place year full chart - month 1 too - single chart. The (single) profection wheel is of course also month 1 of any profected year. In single monthly profection charts, I suggest having the SR displayed outside, not the nativity, unlike the monthly revolution charts.

Incorporating these features in Planetdance would be fantastic. This is because it would allow the practitioner and astrologer to follow Abu Mashar' instructions, namely using the natal, profected and SR Asc, Lot of Fortune, for each of the 12 months and how the rulers of the houses in each scheme are configured.


I have made charts for profected month 2 and profected month 3 and have attached them:

Novak Djokovic 12th place year, profected month 2

Novak Djokovic 12th place year, profected month 3


As far as I know, no traditional astrological software offers this. Thank you for your consideration.

Hi Zagata - thanks for getting in touch. Could you try the Profection module in Horoscope->Classical and see if this meets your needs. If you want this within the Medieval folder, just copy and paste Profection.ab from Classical to Medieval.

At this stage, I would like to see if this is adequate for you. I am prioritising other work at the moment, including a complete re-write of Ed Greek Horoscope.

See screenshot.

All the best. Ed

HI Zagata - I think this is what you are describing. Ed

Thank you very much, Ed.

This is perfect. There is no need to add/rewrite anything because if one wants to see a profected monthly chart with the SR outside, he can open the File/Synastry/Bi Wheel extra and see it there. Likewise for using a Tri Wheel chart.

I copied the profection folder to Medieval, thank you.

Thanks Zagata - I'm glad this meets your needs. Planetdance is an incredible piece of software isn't it!

Thanks Jean - you've made all this possible.

Hi Zagata - I've been working on the Profection module. Jean will update tomorrow. Please update your installation to get the new version. It will again need to be copied from Classical to Medieval.

Thank you very much, Ed. PlanetDance is incredible software indeed!

I would like ask only if it is not too much work: is it possible to add a "show degree" button to this Four Wheel? By checking the button, the user will have the degrees of the planets displayed. And by uncheching the button, only their sign positions will be shown - as they are now.

Hi Zagata - I'll have a think about this idea. I think it's going to be very cramped to show degrees in the quadwheel. Thanks for the suggestion. Ed

Hi Ed,

No problem, don't add it.

In fact, seeing degrees and minutes on the Three Wheel is a little too much. If I could choose, I would prefer to have a "show degree only" button on the Three Wheel vs having a "Show degree" on the Quad Wheel.

Thanks Jean - that's helpful to know. I will look at the question of displaying degrees next weekend. May be a listing of them would be helpful. I think the wheel is going to be too crowded to display them clearly.

Thanks, Jean, but turning off the positions will give the same result as the Profection Quad Wheel - just planetary glyphs in the houses. What I would like to have if possible is to see the degrees too.

Zagata, i've had a look and it's too cumbersome, there's no easy way of doing that, i'm sorry.

Hi Jean,

No problem whatsoever. I know how busy you and Ed are. Besides, the topic was about profected charts that can be saved and displayed. It was done and I am very grateful.

Thanks Zagata - it was a good piece of work to do. That profection script hasn't had a lot of attention recently so it was good to add some improvements. I'm that it's been a success from your point of view. Ed
