For natal/radix (single-wheel), progressed (bi-wheel), directed (bi-wheel) and transit (single-wheel and bi-wheel) charts.
Note: Aspect Hits retains its results after leaving the view. The results will, therefore, be reloaded when the Aspect Hits view is opened again.
Aspect Hit Results can also be saved to the user database for later retrieval even if AC is closed down, or updated. Note that only the last Aspect hit results are saved for each chart. If an aspect hits entry already exists it’s overwritten.
A list of every chart’s Aspect Hit results is available. It shows the name of the chart and the date period.
Animated Gif – showing how easy it is to inspect any aspect, over any time period.
A single tap over the Aspect Hit aspects (shown next to the chart on the right) invokes the Aspect Hits Results Table as shown in the animated GIF.

Version 1.58. Ver 1.58 suitable for the new 10.5″ iPad Pro, and all other iPads.
Natal chart antiscia are shown as planetary/points around a natal wheel, ie as bi-wheel.
An antiscia button has been added below the Synastry button – Main vertical menu – which is left of the displayed chart (not full landscape). The Antiscia menu option can also be accessed from the full landscape view.
Aspect lines are not shown for antiscia charts as the conjunction aspect is considered the only relevant one. For contra-antiscia, opposition aspect lines are shown.
Missing Fixed Star listings restored to Landscape view #2, single-wheel charts. With improvements to display.
Fixed long-press Aspect table view look.
Transit, sec prog., and solar arc date automatically defaults to now, unless a date has been selected previously. This is useful when a chart is initially loaded and a transit, sec. prog. or solar arc button is selected prior to any other action.

Note that when selecting a date for Returns, the date will revert to the nearest Return date. For example picking any date in 2011 when displaying a Solar Return chart will select the specific 2011 Solar Return date for the chart. This is similar to the Return behaviour when selecting a Quick Year, or Month.
Changing the date has no effect on Comparison synastry charts, which is to be expected.

New aspect grid design
(recommended for 1-degree orb for bi-wheel charts )
Bi-wheel – only fractional part (mantissa) of aspect is shown in the grid. Hence the recommended one degree orb.
For single-wheel only the whole number is shown, eg if separation is 2:56 and applying, the aspect is shown in the grid as 2A. The fractional part is ignored.
Note long-press over the aspect grid brings up the Aspect Table – so all aspects can be reviewed
For single-wheel the integer part (the characteristic) is shown, eg if separation is 2:56 and applying, the aspect is shown in the grid as 2A. The fractional (mantissa) part is ignored.
Note: Only fractional part of the aspect separation is shown in the grid for the bi-wheel. This is correct and possible if the aspect orb is 1 degree. Which is the usual orb for bi-wheel aspects such as secondary progressions, and solar arc’s. See cropped screenshot of the aspect grid below
Also, the eclipse positions are not progressed eclipse positions (single-wheel or bi-wheel) but are the actual eclipse positions, ie transits.
New aspect grid design for single-wheel (only whole degree aspect values shown)

New PostUnderstanding AstroConnexions
This is the calculation of the shortest arc between two planets or points from each chart. For example, the shortest arc between chart 1’s Sun and chart 2’s Sun is calculated. This becomes the composite relationship position of the Sun. And so on… This chart can be saved and progressed etc as a natal chart. Various options will be available.
Apologies for the delay for those waiting for composite charts. Nearly there!
Note: Comparison and Composite charts can be saved to Your Charts.
What type of composite chart is available?
Natal Composite chart: single wheel
Transits to a natal composite chart: bi-wheel
Secondary progressed composite chart: single wheel
Secondary progressed composite chart with composite natal chart: bi-wheel
- All other functions are available to composite and comparison charts eg Fixed Star aspects, Terms, etc
- Returns and Solar Arc directions are not available for Composite charts
Some composite chart calculation details
A composite natal chart calculates the midpoints between two selectable natal charts from Your Charts table or from a saved composite chart
A secondary progressed composite chart is calculated from the two natal charts that comprise a composite chart.
To construct a bi-wheel the following calculations take place:
Calculate the midpoints between two natal charts.
Calculate the midpoints between the two progressed natal charts. Each chart is individually progressed.
Composite declinations/latitudes are not taken into account.
Day or Hour Lord
Is not possible to calculate the Day or Hour Lord for synastry charts.
All parts/lots are calculated from the composite Asc, Moon etc. The midpoints for the vertex and East Point are calculated.
Fixed Stars aspects:
Fixed star aspects represent a challenge for composite and comparison charts. Which epoch should be used? Consider that if two natal charts of very different years of birth are used to construct a composite chart how do we decide which year (epoch) to use to calculate the fixed star aspects? The composite chart has no year of birth, nor a day of birth or a place of birth. It is entirely astronomically artificial. So what to do?
The epoch is taken from the first named natal chart date. If the difference in years between the two natal charts is insignificant, possibly less than 50 years, the aspects will be accurate enough. For instance in the composite chart of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert they were both born on 1819. The fixed stars calculation can use the 1819 date as the epoch without any concern as to relevance and accuracy. This also applies to comparison synastry charts.
Example Composite Natal Chart
To include Prince Albert and Queen Victoria charts in Your Charts list please download this csv file and copy to your AstroConnexions DropBox app folder. Then use the Import AC Provided charts option. Import them into Your Charts. You may need a PC to do this. I’m not sure if the iPad can do this? Please note synastry charts are only available when using the Your Charts database.QVicPAl.txt

How to create a Composite or Comparison synastry chart
Understanding how AstroConnexions displays them
For single-wheel synastry charts there is a choice of using the already defined natal orb, or a fixed orb. For bi-wheel charts: (secondary progressed composite charts) the standard orb for progressed charts is used.

Export SF (change of text)
The selected chart is exported in a CSV file format that allows the importing of this file into Solar Fire for Windows via Dropbox.
Deleting Charts and the possible effect on Synastry charts
Note that any saved synastry charts will also be deleted if they are associated with the deleted Natal Chart. Why? A composite or comparison chart is saved with a reference to the 2 charts, and no other details are saved. Therefore when a composite or comparison chart is drawn the 2 charts referenced must exist in the Your Charts database.
eg A composite or comparison chart might be named Bill and Samatha. This file holds the name of Bill’s chart and Samantha’s chart – these 2 charts details are referenced when Bill and Samatha’s synastry chart is drawn.
Directing or progressing a composite chart
Note when a composite chart is directed or progressed each associated chart is individually progressed and then the midpoints calculated.
