Coming Soon to AstroConnexions + News

This web page updated 25th September 2020.

AC now compatible with iPadOS 14+

This page (and the Knowledge Base) is regularly updated to reflect the progress of the new features/updates for AstroConnexions that are in development. And to announce when the next release of AC is available in the Apple App Store.

AC does not prompt you for an App Store review. If you find the app useful, please rate or review it in the App Store, or recommend it to other astrologers/students. This makes a big difference to me and the future of the app.

AC version: 2.27 now available from the Apple app store to buy or to update. Please see below for details about ver 2.27.

If you have purchased AC you can upgrade to all new versions, via Apple’s App store without any additional cost. AC will always be advert-free and intrusive-free with no in-app purchases.

Tap or click over an image to enlarge. All Coming Soon images/designs/procedures subject to change without notice. Most screenshots/gifs iPad Air 2 with landscape orientation.

Report text taken from:

Christian Astrology, William Lilly, 1647 

Micropanastron, Effects of Directions, by John Partridge, 1679

What planets are reported? MC, Asc, Sun and Moon directed to natal Sun, Moon, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, and Mercury.

What aspects are reported? Conjunction, Sextile, Trine, Square and Opposition.

Note that the sextile and trine give the same report. The square and opposition are considered the same for the reports. From the AC Report Settings 45 and 135 degree aspects can be associated with the Square and Opposition reports.

The Progressed Horoscope by Alan Leo, 1906

What planets are reported? Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars directed to natal Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Mercury, Sun and Moon,

What aspects are reported? Conjunction, Semi-Sextile, Semi-Square, Sextile, Square, Trine, Sesquiquadrate, Quincunx, Opposition, and Parallel. (0, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120, 135, 150, 180, 0)

Note that Leo states: Mercury Trine, Sesquiquadrate, Quincunx, Opposition to Venus secondary progressed aspects cannot be formed during the normal span of earth life. This restriction does not apply to solar arc aspects, but because Leo’s reported aspects are only secondary progressed the Solar Arc aspect reports are not included.

Aspect table (progressions/directions): tap aspect to view report analysis for that particular aspect when a + is appended to an aspect record that has an associated aspect report.

Strength And Debility Analysis by AC

A basic analysis of the radix aspect and the progressed or directed aspect is made by AC using some of the scoring values listed by Schoener’s Table to Examine the Strength & Debility of Each Planet. Once this has been done a graphical display shows the result – see screenshot below.

For instance assume, the radix has a Sun/Leo/1st house trine to Jupiter/Sagittarius/5th House aspect and the Sun’s progressed aspect is a square to radical Jupiter. The analysis from Lilly etc, may be far too negative for this progressed aspect if we are aware that the radix positions are so favourable. It is hoped that AC’s algorithm will help in providing a more accurate assessment of the progressed or directed aspect by showing a +ve or -ve graphical score, see screenshot below. To view a Sun Trine Jupiter aspect show the Report database and view the text there.

 

Report for progressed Square aspect – the text is largely negative, but the radical aspect is very positive, thus the +ve score of 16

Tap the aspect table record to isolate the aspect. Tap the same record to display all aspects or tap another aspect record to view an isolated aspect.

Why might this be useful? Aspects to radical positions from transiting/progress/directed planets/points can be difficult to see – this helps.

Sidereal Settings/Options

Sidereal Settings/Options

This is a chart setting so that if a chart is created or edited the zodiac will either be Tropical or Sidereal depending on the setting. Tropical is the default, which is mostly used in Europe/USA. The sidereal option is used for Vedic charts – mostly used in India, but not exclusively. Please note that the last two sentences do not reflect the complicated/contentious choice of a zodiac by astrologers!

Recap. Sidereal charts:

  • Natal/Horary/Radix
  • Solar/Lunar Return (single and bi-wheel)
  • Secondary progressed (single and bi-wheel), by RA and Long. Mean Quotidian.
  • Solar Arc, by long (single and bi-wheel)
  • Transits (single and bi-wheel)
  • Pre-Natal Syzygy (single and bi-wheel)
  • Synastry comparison (bi-wheel)
  • Synastry composite (single and bi-wheel)
  • Ingress (single and bi-wheel)
  • Solar and Lunar Eclipse
  • Additionally completed: fixed stars, chart aspects. Speculum. Filter Your Charts records by All, Sidereal or Tropical.
  • Aspect Hits. CIT analysis and Missing CIT aspects.
  • Added Ayanamsha value to speculum header

Please do not use the above sidereal option with precession adjusted tropical charts. It won’t work! Always use the Tropical zodiac for that.

Here’s an extract from the Swiss Ephemeris documentation:

6.1.12.

Gauquelin sectors This is the “house” system used by the Gauquelin’s and their epigones and critics in statistical investigations in Astrology. Basically, it is identical with the Placidus house system, i.e. diurnal and nocturnal arcs of ecliptic points or planets are subdivided. There are a couple of differences, though.

– Up to 36 “sectors” (or house cusps) are used instead of 12 houses.

– The sectors are counted in clockwise direction.

– There are so-called plus (+) and minus (–) zones. The plus zones are the sectors that turned out to be significant in statistical investigations, e.g.many top sportsmen turned out to have their Mars in a plus zone. The plus sectors are the sectors 36 – 3, 9 – 12, 19 – 21, 28 – 30.

Filter Aspects Bitcoin – animated GIF (shadows courtesy of the GIF app). Aspect lines restricted to filtered planets.

The aspect table shows those aspects that a planet can traditionally cast an aspect to. For example Venus can cast aspects to Jupiter, Saturn and so on. Neptune to Pluto only. However, the chart lines show all associated aspects as well. For example a filtered Asc will show an aspect to the Node in the aspect table but generally planets aspect points, so selecting the Asc to filter may not show any aspects in the Aspect table. The chart will.

Please note: filtered aspects not available for the full landscape long-press Aspect Table view.

it can be seen that not all significant CIT’s have a corresponding/associated aspect to the radix. However, these CIT’s may have a corresponding/associated aspect to the radix. The question is: what are these supposed longitude positions of a planet that aspects these points? Do they exist?

Note that the post does not calculate aspects to the Asc or MC as it was thought that there was no significant associated aspect to these points for a CIT. It may be possible that that the Asc and MC are inaccurate and the Missing CIT Aspect procedure/form may help to find the true positions of these points. Thus, this is a rectification method.

A suitable procedure would be as follows:

Note only transiting aspects to the radix are used to calculate the aspect hits in this example and in the post.

  1. Find the most significant transiting aspecting planet to BTC – this is Saturn
  2. Assign missing aspect dates – see Adding a CIT and Analysis menu icons (this is similar, except the icon is different – see below)

CIT Analysis 

3. Calculate Saturn’s (and other planets) position to CIT dates that do not have a transiting aspect from any planet (Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) to the BTC radix.

4. Review the data to see if there are (multiple similar) longitudinal positions of Saturn (and other planets) that might indicate a point that that is significant. Please see the screenshot below.

For instance by reviewing the results of the calculation it may be that Saturn’s (and Neptune) longitudinal position for different CIT dates are at 12 degrees 02 minutes. This may indicate that the Asc or MC (or a midpoint, or another point eg Vertex) is at this position. The BTC chart should then be adjusted. Further test should be applied and the chart should be reviewed for the accuracy of the new point(s).

What would we want to do this? To get greater accuracy in the BTC (or other stocks or crypto charts) forecasts for aspect to significant CIT’s.

Conclusion

It appears that the MC’s radical position at 11° 59′ Aries is significant and that these findings point to a possible adjustment of the MC to 12° 01′ Aries.

I don’t believe there’s enough data to definitely say that the MC should be adjusted. However, these findings strongly indicate aspects to the radix MC should be included in any BTC Aspect Hits calculations.

iPad used for Video: iPad Air 2.

AC charts now have the extension .acc or .ACC

When exporting AC charts from the new batch export form, or singularly (left swipe record) from the Chart table the extension used is now .acc. For example when saving a single AC chart (left swipe record) the chart name is used for the file name, so if a chart name is Edward Smith it will be saved your Drop Box AstroConnexions folder as Example Smith.acc

Similarly with the batch export except a file name has to be entered in the File Name field – see screenshot below. Multiple charts can be held in one ACC file.

If you have any older AC files (pre AC ver 1.95) that you wish to import just change the file name extension to acc.

All Export/Import routines have been re-examined, re-assessed, tested, and improved.

New Functionality: List all Your Charts for batch Export to Drop Box for AC or Solar Fire.

Also batch Delete.

Charts exported as an .acc file can be imported back into AC, when required.

Select your chart records to be exported. Tick a record with a tap, or use the tick/cross icons/buttons to select all, or unselect your chart records.

Export and Delete Charts

Export and Delete Charts – Info

Tap a chart record to select with a Tick. Tap again to remove.

Why would you want to export AC charts?

  1. As a backup, in case of accidental chart deletion
  2. As a backup. If you get a new or different iPad and you want a copy of the charts on your other iPad.
  3. Backups are always a good idea.
