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.

Version 1.97. 

Added to Financial Analysis: Investigate missing aspects when there is a significant CIT (for rectification)

For financial stocks and crypto data – Full Landscape View #6 (Finance)

CIT = Change in Trend, an inflexion point

Reasoning behind this functionality: 

In the post: Bitcoin – the astrology 

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.

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.

To add a CIT date to the CIT table – this table is used for comparing the Aspect Hit dates with the actual CIT date.

  1. Long-press over the financial chart and select an actual CIT date to compare with an associated Aspect Hit date. Release long-press.
  2. Tap the + button icon. The CIT Date table is shown above the financial chart and the date is added to the table. The time is ignored.
  3. Continue until the number of actual CIT dates is the same number as the associated Aspect Hit dates
  4. View the results in the Analysis form. The CIT dates will always be shown in date order.

When adding dates duplicate dates are ignored. You can swipe to delete a date record.
