Manufacturer’s Description

Planetary Aspects and Transits is Windows software designed to help students of astrology (both amateur and professional) to explore world transits (aspects formed over time by moving planets) and personal transits (aspects formed over time by a moving planet to a planet in the natal chart). It has many user-selectable options, such as the ability to choose your preferred zodiac, set aspect orbs, and show only the outer planets.

After entering a date and time you can view the corresponding world transits in either tabular or graphical 'chart' form, showing how many aspects of each kind (square, trine, etc.) are present, and also if any aspect patterns (T-square, kite, yod, etc.) are present. You can search for aspect patterns from the currently-entered date onwards. The chart may be animated so that the development of transits can be viewed in steps of a day, a week, a month or a year.

You can also enter two birth dates, and from these get tabular and graphical displays for natal aspects (the horoscope), for personal transits (the aspect relations of the natal planets and the planets at a given date) and for synastry (the aspect relations for the two birth dates). The display of personal transits can also be animated, so as to see when aspects and aspect patterns form and subside for someone born at a certain date.

Additional information of interest to the serious astrologer is given regarding when transits start and end, and their duration. In the case of personal transits this information is displayed graphically for the entire course of the transit, showing when the transit becomes exact, or at least reaches a minimum.

All charts can be saved as PNG graphics files, with either black or white background.

Changes in v17.59: Used Arial font for better appearance. Removed restriction on birthdates in trial version.
