Coming Soon to AstroConnexions + News
This web page was updated on the 14th April 2021. Apologies for no recent updates. I’ve been ill.
Compatible with iPadOS 14+. From iOS 9+.
Coming Soon (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: 2.40 now available from the Apple app store to buy or to update. Please see below for details about ver 2.40.
If you have purchased AC, or have used a promo code, 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.

Fixed obscure bug. If Moon was parallax, and Zodiac was Sidereal, the Moon’s applying or separating aspects could be listed incorrectly. For example Moon should be listed in the Aspect Table as applying to Mars, but was shown as separating. This did not affect the position of the sidereal parallax Moon which was always calculated correctly, or any other calculations.

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.

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.

Settings – top left icon of long-press Aspect Table:
- Restrict aspects from outer planets for secondary progressions, bi-wheel. Why would you want to do this? The outer planets hardly move from their natal positions when progressed so their aspects can be potentially disregarded.
- Allow only Jupiter to Pluto for Transits, bi-wheel. Why would you want to do this? Aspects from the faster moving planets (Sun, Moon etc) are often considered inconsequential as transits.
- Three font sizes for aspect listing.

Fixed slightly protruding horizontal lines Essential Dignities and Debilities table for 9.7″ iPads, full landscape view, single wheel.
Version 2.29, available now.
Bug fix: Essential Dignities calculations
If, for example Venus is in her Fall, and in her Face, and in her Trip, the calculation would be
Face +1, Trip +3
Which = 0 when added together. The current AC function would then give -5p, which is an error. Now corrected in ver 2.29 to show the value 0 and not peregrine.
Version 2.28, available now.

Tropical/Sidereal Zodiac settings
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:
- 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)

Here’s an extract from the Swiss Ephemeris documentation:
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.Swiss Ephemeris documentation PDF Gauquelin Planetary Effects Revisited Gauquelin Planetary Effects

Filter Aspects by Planets/Points – available for all types, natal, transit, returns, etc, antiscia, midpoint. Wheel and bi-wheel.
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.

Quick fix: Missing CIT Aspects table was rebuilt on startup of AC. Fixed
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.
- Find the most significant transiting aspecting planet to BTC – this is Saturn
- Assign missing aspect dates – see Adding a CIT and Analysis menu icons (this is similar, except the icon is different – see below)
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.
Calculating the Longitude positions for the missing aspect dates (for Transits, Sec Progressions and Solar arc directions)
After reviewing the Applying Planetary Long table positions the closest longitudes to significant CIT’s are indicated below.
CIT’s – from coinmarketcap.com
Screenshots of the associated charts
Missing CIT Aspects – help
Further Screenshots – listing and printing
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.

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.

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