Finally, a small group of Vedic astrologers are departing from the approaches used by all traditional Jyotishis and the most renowned current Jyotishis.
Andrew Foss has written an article, pointing out how their approach vitiates many core principles of Jyotish here. Thursday, April 5, Essential Oil Shootouts Those who get their essential oils only from one company, believing the party line that the company promulgates, may end up with very poor quality oils. I am a big fan of "shootouts", where two or more people get together and compare oils of the same type e.
I've just written a page on my first and last shootouts here. Version 5 is a huge upgrade from version 4. Wednesday, February 14, A Journey into the world of Oudh: Part 13 For those following this column, I explore the latest and greatest offerings of this transcendental oil here.
For newcomers, Oud is the most precious essential oil in the world, and the most spiritually uplifting. I invite you to explore this blog. Sunday, February 4, When Subcycles really count my new Vedic tutorial I recently had a series of health issues, and found out why astrologically in exploring the sub-sub-cycle of my current Dasa.
This inspired my latest article, which you can read here. I realized recently that I'd never published it on my website, so I revised it and here it is. I examined almost apps to write this article, which focuses on the most accurate and best apps available. These programs, by Curt Manwaring, represent the pinnacle of Traditional Astrology software, and the fact that he has cut the pricing by half make them a truly excellent software addition for any astrologer interested in Hellenistic or Medieval astrology.
Sunday, October 22, A guide to computer security One of my website visitors is the author of an article on computer and internet security. He has kindly offered this article here to you, my readers, so that you can understand the issues concerning protecting your computer more easily.
It is a major update, one of the most comprehensive that I've encountered. It resolves all of the issues previous versions of Janus occasionally had e.
Janus 5 offers the best Solar Eclipse Maps and Theme Maps in existence, the most powerful Astrological Calendar, very enhanced Traditional Astrology functions, an even easier-to-use improved interface, and even a Vedic module! I am offering it at an excellent introductory price here , and you can read an introductory review of it here and a two part complete review in the next two issues of The Mountain Astrologer Janus 5 is the only astrology program that offers full Natal, Transit, Compatibility, and Relocation reports built in all licensed for resale too.
It is a very impressive program. Tuesday, October 3, Dusthana Houses and The Value of Adversity I just revised an old article I'd written in order to make it more current and more instructive. It's about how adversity can be our teacher, and how the "bad houses" can help us along the way. It's both fascinating and beautiful. Here's a collection of the best photographs from the mission.
Thursday, September 7, Two new web pages on the mystical oil Oud I've been quite busy updating my web pages on the magical oil known as agarwood or Oud.
On the first new page, Part Eleven , I review The Medicinal Properties of Agarwood oil , quoting from two reliable references One Traditional Chinese and one Ayurvedic and then providing links to a few top articles summarizing the research on the health benefits of Oud. On the second new page, Part Twelve , I introduce five new Ouds from Ensar Oud, and address the question, "What to ask an Oud purveyor before ordering from them.
So if you were thinking of purchasing a program, and also want to help those in need, now's the time. You can find my astrology software order form here , or visit my websites devoted to specific astrology programs here. Wednesday, August 30, Sync your calendar with the Solar System The New York Times science desk rolled out a cool new feature that allows you to sync your calendar with the solar system.
Sign up here to add meteor showers, eclipses and other cosmic special events to your Google or iOS calendar. Learn more about the other meteor showers that will occur this year, and how to watch them. He has the North Node conjunct his Sun at birth, at the top of his chart, see below.
As I indicated in my previous article about his chart , many of his behaviors can be attributed directly to the effects of the North Node Rahu conjunct the Sun, who is also the ruler of the chart in both Western Tropical and Vedic Sidereal charts. This makes the Sun the most important planet in the chart by far. His relentless drive, egocentrism, unwavering beliefs, and inability to take in the advice of others with different views are a few of the challenging traits archetypical of the North Node.
As I've said, the North Node is incredibly amplifying. It inflates everything it touches, for better or for worse. Again, a testament to the role of the North Node as a malefic planet. And as anyone can see from current events, the world has gone a bit haywire, which is very typical of the time before, on, and shortly after an eclipse.
The current eclipse is a North Node one. Surprisingly, I've never heard of any Western astrologer making a distinction between the two types of eclipses, which has to be a very important one.
Astute astrologers have already noticed that the eclipse occurs just about a degree from Donald Trump's Ascendant, and of course, being born just before a Lunar eclipse, he is likely to be deeply affected by the upcoming eclipse, more than most people. Certainly his latest gaffes concerning the Charlottesville tragedy have cost him a great deal, so hopefully the eclipse energy won't make his behavior even worse.
After all, that's when they start being called president-elect! This has been made even more obvious in the case of Donald Trump. He was at the tail end of his Rahu Dasa I. But unfortunately, the North Node also is a very destabilizing influence, and things begun during the Rahu Dasa often have an illusory type of fulfillment.
And particularly for his chart again born at a Lunar Eclipse , the Rahu Dasa indicated that his presidency would be a very rocky ride. Rahu Dasa, according to Dennis Harness, is "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride", I. And it can be a positive period for people with well-placed North Nodes, e.
By the way, one who is not familiar with Vedic astrology might ask, "but if it's only 8 days before he leaves this influence, shouldn't its effects be transitory? Eight days later, he entered the Jupiter Dasa, and it's obvious that his term in office has been anything but Jupiterian.
And to hope that the upcoming eclipse brings positive changes to our country and the world. I recently had a similar experience when a Vedic astrologer asked me why Shri Jyoti Star calculated charts differently than the Jagannatha Hora and AstroSage programs he'd been using.
As I immediately knew, neither Jagannatha Hora nor AstroSage have trustworthy time change atlases built in, and both had again miscalculated many charts and he hadn't realized that. Another astrologer hadn't updated their top level astrology program for years, and so was using an out-of-date atlas when she could have updated just the atlas for free on the company's website, and then had all of the fixes and improvements incorporated into her program.
Finally, most free programs and almost all Vedic programs written in India miscalculate charts because they lack accurate time zones and time changes.
You can test your software's accuracy here. Don't rely on any program that you've had for 15 years or more, and please update your program or at least the atlas every time an update becomes available. Astrology is a powerful and sacred art, and we need the best and most accurate tools if we are to serve the art, and our clients, properly.
It actually gave me chills! What a privilege to live in an era where we can watch a film taken by a spacecraft orbiting Pluto. Part Ten Those of you who regularly visit this column are aware of my explorations in aromatherapy and the mystically potent essential oil known as Oudh or agarwood oil. I have just added a new page to my Oudh articles here , about a phenomenal set of new oils that I've found.
Sunday, July 16, How to evaluate Essential Oils I have added another page to my blog on essential oils , exploring the attributes of the best oils, and the ways to evaluate essential oil companies. You can read the new page here.
I hope that it serves you. Wednesday, July 12, What astrology software can't do People just discovering astrology software often ask me questions like: Astrology programs cannot think. At most, they can analyze the astrological factors programmed into them by an astrologer. Astrology programs are severely limited in the number of factors that they can take into account, and have no "sense of proportion" about which factors are the most important and will predominate in their influence.
Since even the very best professional astrologers often go wrong in their predictions -- e. Astrology programs that delineate the future cycles and events and their impact on a person's life never take into account that person's birth chart I. And so I wish to remind beginners that the best use of astrology software is for its ability to calculate and display charts, graphs, tables, and maps that would be difficult or even impossible for most people to prepare by hand.
And that when software ventures into the realm of interpretation and prediction, everything has to be taken with a huge boulder of salt. It's not that there is no value in these efforts, but they are very, very general and more likely not to occur or be accurate than to do so. Wednesday, July 5, An amazing set of astronomy videos on the planets I was looking at the latest images from the Juno space probe circling Jupiter right now it's halfway through its mission and stumbled upon a video maker who has created an amazing collection of planetary videos.
His pen name is Astrum, and his new Jupiter movie is here and is stunning. You can visit a his video page and choose from movies that focus on planets, galaxies, asteroids, and more. I am very impressed with his work. Sunday, June 4, The Wonders of Jupiter updated As astrologers and astronomers know, Jupiter is the largest planet, and emits more energy than it gets from the Sun.
If you combined six Jupiters, fusion would start and it would become a star. Astrologically, Jupiter represents the virtues of wisdom, faith, generosity, positivity, stability, working well within the system, and blessings. Its shadow qualities include excess, greed, over-optimism, over-indulgence, and overdoing in general.
NASA's Juno spacecraft is currently orbiting Jupiter and every 53 days gets close enough to take lovely photos of the planet and provide new and amazing insights about it. Here are some fascinating websites providing videos and photos of this remarkable voyage: These report writers can run by themselves, or within Solar Fire, and you are fully licensed to sell the reports that they produce.
You can see which ones I recommend most, and view samples off all of the reports, here. Monday, May 15, Blending Vedic and Western Astrologies -- Revisited I just wrote my most comprehensive article on the ways that you can and cannot effectively blend Western and Vedic astrological approaches.
I included a short analysis of Donald Trump's chart using some of these insights. You can read it here and I hope you enjoy it. Wednesday, May 10, What kind of device do you need to run astrology software? One of the most frequent questions that I get asked is "Can I run Solar Fire or another astrology program on my device?
What many newcomers don't understand is that astrology programs are written for one operating system. That's why so many astrologers who own Mac computers install Windows and Parallels on their Macs, so that they can run the astrology programs that they need.
To say it another way, most astrology programs won't run on Macs, or iPads, or Chromebooks, or Android tables, or Amazon Fire tablets. And that's why it is so important to think about what software you want to be able to run before you purchase a computer or tablet.
A very few programs will run on multiple platforms, and in the future, more will follow. But for the time being, it's wisest to get a Windows PC or Mac with Windows installed on it for astrological work.
Wednesday, May 3, Windows 10 S a disaster in the making Six years ago, Microsoft released a crippled version of Windows called Windows RT that couldn't run any astrology programs, nor most Windows programs except ones specifically created for it. Windows RT eventually died a slow, painful death, cost users and Microsoft millions, and was one of Microsoft's biggest mistakes.
Just like Windows RT, it won't be able to run any Windows programs except those sold at the Windows store , so almost all Windows programs, including all astrology programs, won't run on it. Avoid Windows 10 S computers like the plague!
They may be less expensive than other Windows PCs, but they're completely useless to all astrologers. Shame on Microsoft for once again ignoring all of the suffering and expense they will be causing their customers. If you want to read more on this topic, a well-written computer article on this issue is here.
The footage and photos will be amazing. As we wait, here's a video of four days in the life of Saturn. Sunday, April 16, More on Regulus Platinum 8 Juan Saba has done an excellent job of adding features and enhancements to his Regulus Platinum Professional version 8.
In exploring it recently, I found it even more capable than I imagined. You can read about the update here. It is therefore at its brightest and biggest I. Because of its size and brightness, the Hubble Telescope crew have just released a great new photograph of Jupiter here and a fascinating new video here.
I enjoyed both very much and hope you do too. As my regular readers know, I have been exploring the world of aromatherapy over the last several years, and especially the magical oil known as Oud or agarwood oil. You can read the latest page here , or start at the beginning of the blog here. Wednesday, March 15, My new tutorial: The Way of the Jyotishi How is the mindset of a Vedic astrologer different from that of a Western one?
My new article addresses this and other themes here. All of these pages also include or give links to my view on which are the best. You can see the image with notations here , and without notations here. Friday, February 17, The importance of keeping your astrology software up-to-date Most astrologers are very happy owning older versions of their favorite astrology software, and rarely upgrade to newer releases unless their computer crashes and they have lost their old program disks; or can't install the old version due to changes in the operating system.
But what they fail to realize is that the new versions of their programs have very important and essential capabilities besides the new and improved features. Over the past few years, the time-change atlases built into most programs have had many errors fixed. That means that older software may, in fact, miscalculate some charts.
One thing that inspired this article is an experience I had recently. I was calculating a transit graph and noticed that many major events were left out.
Once I upgraded my software to the latest version, the problem disappeared. Similarly, older versions of many programs had software glitches that actually crashed the program.
Over time, most of these have been resolved. Older software is likely to run into compatibility issues not only with Windows 10 and the latest Mac OS, but also with other software installed on the computer.
Software companies also continue to improve the user interface of their programs, I. And all of these are in addition to all of the many enhancements of older features, and the added new capabilities. Fortunately, upgrades from most companies cost much less than the original price of the software.
So if you are using a program that is over 5 years old, I heartily encourage you to consider updating it. The book is a delight to read and has been out of print for decades, but has recently be re-released as an ebook which you can get here. The Smashwords website even allows you to preview the first fifth of the book for free online or on your ereader or mobile device, to see if you like it.
Give it a try, I promise that you've never seen the planets written about in this way. Regulus has been updated incredibly frequently, and each update is very valuable. Learn about the new version here. Ernst Wilhelm continues to improve the current features and add new ones too.
His students will be especially pleased with the latest software update. This article is a must-read for all astrologers. It shows which techniques are completely dependent upon a precise birth time and which are not.
Because the Moon is tidally locked, it was not until that the farside was first imaged by the Soviet Luna 3 spacecraft hence the Russian names for prominent farside features, such as Mare Moscoviense.
A different world from what we saw from Earth. The Clementine mission obtained beautiful mosaics with the sun high in the sky low phase angles , but did not have the opportunity to observe the farside at sun angles favorable for seeing surface topography.
This WAC mosaic provides the most complete look at the morphology of the farside to date, and will provide a valuable resource for the scientific community.
And it's simply a spectacular sight! You can see stunning pictures of the Lunar far side and near side here.

Saturday, October 8, Free Traditional Horary Astrology Books An astrologer named Mithras93 has posted the text files of five classical astrology books online for free downloading here.
May they serve you. Since I've been reviewing and helping companies develop their programs for almost 40 years, I have witnessed the development and evolution of all of the major programs too. Some programs remain static for a decade or more, and when new versions are released, only minor changes have occurred.
But other programs are carefully enhanced, with new features added regularly. The most frequently significantly updated programs are: The astrological implications of this event, and those born during it, are likely to be profound.
Tuesday, September 20, Running Solar Fire on a Mac Many astrologers purchase Mac computers because of the greater ease-of-use of Macs, and the greater safety from malware.
But there are very few Mac-native astrology programs, and so many Mac owners choose to install Windows on their Macs, in order to run PC astrology programs.
The program of choice for most Mac owners is Solar Fire, both because it has the most Mac-like interface even more than some Mac-native programs , and because it is much more powerful than any Mac-native program. Esoteric the creator of Solar Fire offers detailed information on installing Solar Fire on a Mac here , and Astrolabe the worldwide purveyor of Solar Fire has instructions here , and important problem-solving information here.
As most of you know, you can get Solar Fire through me at the best price with many extras here. All of these maps enable you to see exactly where the total eclipse is visible.
This forthcoming total eclipse will be viewable across the United States. In the future, you might visit the NASA website to see more detailed maps of upcoming eclipses.
Wednesday, September 7, Factors to consider in assessing a life theme My new Vedic tutorial On my Learn Astrology Free website, which has over tutorials in Western and Vedic astrology written by me, I've just added a new article called, "Factors to consider in assessing a life theme" here.
I hope that you enjoy it. Wednesday, August 24, The Most Reliable Astrology Software Over the past 38 years, I have explored virtually every astrology program made in the West, and many created in the East.
I've encountered programs that were almost impossible to install, ones with very serious calculation errors, some with quite a few bugs, and many that crashed. I've also received feedback from hundreds of astrologers about their challenges with particular programs.
So I'd like to honor the following programs as being the most reliable, bug-free, and solid astrological software: You can even download the files in.
Tuesday, August 9, Amazing video of Mars at Opposition As astronomers and astrologers know, a planet in orbit beyond the Earth is visibly largest at opposition. In this amazing video , you get to see Mars actually change in size as it approaches opposition.
Wednesday, August 3, Going Deeper into Retrogrades a gift from Astrolabe Astrolabe, the makers of Solar Fire and many other programs and reports, has created a PDF file explaining the three different Retrograde phases and Mercury Retrograde, and also provides a fine table for showing all of the planetary shadow periods and stations.
You can get the article here. You can view and download one of the best photographs ever taken of Mars here. And an annotated image here. To quote the Hubble site: The photo reveals details as small as 20 miles to 30 miles across. This observation was made just a few days before Mars opposition on May 22, when the sun and Mars will be on exact opposite sides of Earth.
Mars also will be On May 30, Mars will be the closest it has been to Earth in 11 years, at a distance of Mars is especially photogenic during opposition because it can be seen fully illuminated by the sun as viewed from Earth. Monday, July 18, The entire text of Vettius Valens Anthologies , Book 1 Curtis Manwaring is the creator of the preeminent Hellenistic programs The Delphic Oracle and Timaeus Pro -- both of which he has placed on sale right now for a huge discount.
You can read my Mountain Astrologer review of the previous version of the Delphic Oracle here , and my review of an earlier version of Timaeus here.

This feature allows you to search through your chart files for those charts that have specific astrological factors present. Friday, July 1, Sources of free astrology ebooks I just got a Kindle Paperwhite for my birthday, and began looking for astrology books that I can install and read on it.

Wednesday, May 18, My latest tutorial: The Vedic Relocation Chart I recently looked at my relocated chart for California using the Vedic chart instead of the Western one, and was profoundly struck by its accuracy and relevance. That inspired me to write this article, which you can read here.
Thursday, May 12, Rectifying charts with astrology software One of the questions I am frequently asked by astrologers is what astrology program can rectify a person's charts for them.
In order to address this issue, I've written a new article, Rectifying Charts using Astrology Software , which you can read here. Wednesday, May 4, Getting your astrology software to work with Windows 10 Windows 10 is, as most people know, a very major change from Windows 7, and requires more maintenance than Windows 7 does.
There are frequent updates, and when Windows gives you the option of delaying the installation of those updates, and you do delay installing them, problems can occur. For instance, you might click on the icon for your astrology program and nothing happens.
If so, reboot and let Windows 10 install all of the updates to itself that it wants to. Also, it's always a good idea, after first installing a program under Windows 10, to reboot, so the changes are integrated into Windows.
Wednesday, April 20, Jagannatha Hora updated! The foremost free and amazingly powerful Vedic astrology program, Jagannatha Hora, has just been updated to version 8.

Tuesday, April 5, Rising Cost of Astrology Software When Cosmic Patterns significantly updated Kepler many years ago and rebranded it as Sirius and more than doubled its price, the company began a pattern that is now bearing fruit elsewhere.
A couple of astrology software companies in the last few months have raised their prices with their latest releases, and I anticipate more price increases to come.
One might ask, "are these rising prices justified? Not to mention the very costly customer support. So that even if it seems that the price increases in some cases seem disproportionate to the improvements in the new version, such increases were a long time coming. We astrologers are incredibly blessed by the work of astrological programmers, and the incredible creations that they offer us.
Wednesday, March 30, Windows on Earth: Astronaut Photography I just stumbled across this website which shows over a thousand pictures taken by astronauts from the space station of the Earth, the Moon, Aurora, and more. There are even 41 movies as the station traverses the Earth.
Tuesday, March 22, My Software Reviews page updated! It's been a while since I updated my software reviews web page with links to my latest reviews.

Wednesday, January 27, A Journey into the World of Oudh my newest blog I have started a blog on Oud, aka Agarwood oil, the most transcendental fragrant oil of all.
Oud has been used for spiritual work and in perfumes for hundreds of years, and I've been exploring it for just over a year. You can read my four page Oud blog starting here. While this, like my aromatherapy blog, is not directly related to astrology or astrology software, both are related to consciousness, and anything that fosters deeper awareness can support a more profound understanding of astrology.

I am very grateful to Astrolabe for all that they have contributed to astrology and astrologers. It turns out that the orbits of the minor satellites moons of Pluto defy scientific understanding.
Many of you might not know that because Charon Pluto's largest moon is so large, in fact more than half of the size of Pluto, astronomers consider the pair as a double planet system, i. Pluto and Charon orbiting each other. This might contribute to the never-seen-before motions of the other moons. You can see an animation of the moons here and here , a video of the incredibly varied orbit of Nix here , and an informative infographic about them all here.
Shri Jyoti Star is used by many of the top Jyotishis, and the latest version has many new and improved features. You can read about Shri Jyoti Star here , and purchase it at the sale price here.

Monday, September 28, Samples of all of the reports built into Solar Fire All of the professional astrology programs have reports included in them.
Many are quite short, some are longer, and most are not suitable for resale hence the market for add-on reports. I invite all astrologers thinking of buying Solar Fire for whom interpretations are important to please explore these before purchasing Solar Fire. Until late last year, I'd never heard of Oud, aka Agarwood Oil.
It's the rarest and most expensive essential oil in the world, worth more than its weight than gold, and it has the ability to both ground you and open you spiritually in a profound way. Two of the very best ouds that I have found have just gone on sale for a short time.
The purveyor, Ensar Oud, is known as the best Oud distiller and purveyor. I hold him in great respect. I do not get any commission or perks by recommending his Ouds. His Assam is the the most spiritual and uplifting Oud that he has, with a very lovely and aligning fragrance. His Oud Yusuf is not only exquisite in scent, evoking lilies and lilac, and completely ethically harvested only the Oud-laden portions of the trees are removed.
The trees still live. I have sampled over Ouds so far most in tiny amounts , and just want you, my readers, to have the benefits of my quest.

To find out which are the best apps, please get the next issue of The Mountain Astrologer. As a result, one device might have charts created that are not present on their other device. Esoteric Technologies, the creators of Solar Fire, have kindly created an instruction sheet on how to best merge chart files, which you can read here.
The asteroids install easily, and can be used in wheels as User-defined points within wheels, or as Extra Ring points, as well as in listings like Solar Fire's Chart Analysis Report, Aspect List, Sensitive Points list, and more. You can purchase it through them here via download or on a CD. Monday, March 16, Running astrology software on two or more PCs I frequently get asked by those about to purchase astrology software if they are allowed to run the program on more than one PC.
Since many astrologers have desktops, laptops, and tablets, it is useful to be able to install their astrology software on all of their devices. My answer is simple: Of course, if the astrology program itself runs under Windows, then your devices all have to run Windows too.
But in responding to a customer's query, she brought up another issue: The answer is no, they don't. Therefore, the best procedure is to enter all new data on only one of your PCs, and then use a flash drive to regularly copy the updated chart file to all of your other Windows devices.
Tuesday, March 10, Do you know of any astrology apps for the iPad or Android?
I am in the process of preparing a full article for The Mountain Astrologer on astrology apps for the iPad and Android platforms, and need your help. If you know of any apps that you like that I should explore, please email me and let me know.
Thank you very much! Wednesday, March 4, Gambling with Astrology I frequently receive emails from gamblers who want to use astrology to increase their winnings, and are looking for astrology software that will help them.
I am struck by many things that they never ask because they don't understand astrology enough: Is it in my chart to make money via gambling? If a person's chart does not indicate success via gambling, then the best transits in the world won't help. Will positive transits reliably result in winning?
Positive transits may not affect financial status at all, depending upon which planets are transited, their status in the person's chart, the houses they rule, etc. Will negative transits affect my judgment, impulsiveness, groundedness, etc.
It is naive to think that the universe is mechanical, and that a challenging transit will cause losses directly. In fact, if a transit makes you hasty, rash, overly idealistic, depressed, or otherwise influences your psyche, it will definitely affect your gambling behavior.
What do I need to know about myself to be an effective gambler? The whole point of natal astrology is an understanding of ones self, both the mundane "lot in life" themes and the psychological ones.
Gamblers virtually never ask crucial questions about their makeup that will influence their success in gambling and in every other area of their lives. And no astrology programs oriented towards helping gamblers address any of the above issues!
Whether one should gamble or not is a question each person should ask themselves, and astrology can help, but only if the above considerations are part of the equation. Saturday, February 7, Part Two of my Mountain Astrologer review of the Prometheus astrology program I've uploaded part two of my review of the astrology program Prometheus here.
Prometheus is an amazing professional-level program with many unique capabilities. I invite you to read the review and learn all about it. I ran AstroDatabank today on my Windows 7 system and realized that it is actually more functional than I had thought.
It turns out that when you run WebUpdate, or add a filter, or do a search, if you encounter the AstroDatabank Error Report Screen, all you have to do is click on the cancel button and these functions work!
Sunday, January 25, A free set of astrological icons I was exploring free astrology software on the 'net and found a great set of astrological icons for free. You can download them, as well as explore all of the free astrology software I've discovered, here.
Core Principles in Transit Interpretation I prepared a new tutorial for my Learn Astrology Free website on the major principles in transit interpretation. May it prove of value to you.
It was a labor of love, taking many, many hours to complete, and involved first creating a Mind Map of the program, and then using Image Map software to create popup notes and links. The Image Map serves three different functions: It lays out most of the features of Solar Fire, so that everyone can see what the program can do.
If you move your mouse over any feature, a popup note tells you where to find that feature. And gives additional tips and information.
If you click on the features that are shown in bold italic , a new window will open and show you a YouTube video tutorial that I created for that feature. By clicking on the topic Solar Fire, for example, you will see my Introduction to Solar Fire tutorial video.
I hope that my efforts prove valuable to you. As I create new Solar Fire tutorial videos, I will update this map to make accessing them easier.
You can see the new Image Map here. Please contact me at my email address if you have any apps you like or have created. Happy Holidays to all. For those of you who are or wish to be astrological programmers, one of the foremost tools for programming is now free.
Here is the link to learn more about the free offer and how to get it. Tuesday, December 2, Aromatherapy: A New Journey For the past few months, I've been exploring the world of aromatherapy.

If you've either created an astrology app or know of one that you really like, please contact me at stars soulhealing. Wednesday, November 12, Mars Retrograde animation To ancient Vedic astrologers, who observed the movements of the planets, the unpredictable nature of Mars' orbital path was confounding, Mars became the planet that "went its own way".
The reason for this was that each time Mars goes retrograde, the path it takes is unique and never to be repeated. Here's a page with several depictions of Mars retrograding. Be sure to look at the contrast between its retrograde path and its one at the bottom of the page. This page explains more about why the shapes can be different for each retrogradation.
Most astrologers have never heard of Prometheus, unless they've read my two reviews of it in The Mountain Astrologer this year. But when I first started exploring Prometheus, I was astounded by the many unique features and brilliant design ideas in the program. I have been working with Gavin Burns, the author of Prometheus, and know that he is continuing to develop the program.
In fact, the next major update should be phenomenal! He has agreed to allow me to offer Prometheus on sale this holiday season through December 15th for an incredibly low price with a free update to version 2.
You can learn about many of the program's capabilities, and get it at the sale price here. Tuesday, October 28, My free astrology programs page updated! I've added it to my free astrology software page in the Vedic section, and will be reviewing it soon.
