What is meant by a report?
A report is usually an analysis of a particular part of a chart. A report maybe an analysis/understanding of the whole chart. For AC, reports (text stored in AC’s database) are available for aspects (although not all aspects) to the radix from Secondary progressions, and Solar Arcs. The analysis/reports are taken from copyright-free books and stored in your AC’s database.
Report text/analysis 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, 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.

How does this work? Using AC’s Reports:
When as aspect perfects or is within its assigned orb on a particular date/year it is shown in the Aspect Table. In the example below Al Pacino’s 1966 secondary progressed aspects to the natal chart is shown in the Aspect Table. If an aspect has an associated report a + marker is appended to the aspect record. Long-press this record shows the aspect report. He has an Asc Trine Jupiter aspect that has an associated report.
The Al Pacino chart can be opened from your Provided Charts if you wish to follow the following instructions to get the exact same results.
Select bi-wheel, and Secondary Progression. Scroll Quick Year to 1966.
2. Tap the Aspects Icon button for the Aspect Table. After the aspect table is populated note the + marker. This indicates an AC report is available for that particular aspect.
3. Long-press the record with the + marker. This invokes the following view – Report for Aspect.

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 scores. This may allow you to take a more-informed view of the progressed or directed aspect’s meaning/outcome.
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.
Note that, in this case (Sun/Leo/1st house trine to Jupiter/Sagittarius/5th House aspect), it is useful to see how a Sun trine Jupiter aspect is analysed as this might be more appropriate. To do this inspect the Reports Database.
Here’s the rules for calculating the strength and debility of an aspect:
- House positions apply to apply planets and radix.
- Dignities and debilities apply to radix positions, and applying progressed planet/point
- Infortune, Fortune – applying progressed planet/point to radix planet
Here’s two example calculations (excluding house positions) – Sun progressed to radix positions.
Progressed Aspect: Sun Square Jupiter
Points for radix positions:
Sun/Leo – ruler 5 points
Jupiter/Sag – ruler, term 8 points
13 points radically
Points for Progressed Sun square radical Jupiter
Sun/Virgo. Peregrine -5 points
Total points 8
Progressed Aspect: Sun Conj Mars
Points for radix positions:
Sun/Leo – ruler 5 points
Mars/Libra: Detriment -4 points
1 point radically
Points for Progressed Aspect Sun Conjunct Mars
Sun/Libra, Fall -4 points
Bodily conjunction with an Infortune, -5 points
Total points – 8
