Note that the above orb values are used by single-wheel charts.

Bi-wheel orbs:

It is an accepted practice to use one user-selected orb value for all aspects for progressed or directed charts. For instance is it usual for a 1 degree orb to be applied to aspects (progressed or directed to natal/radix) for progressed or directed charts. AC uses a default value of 1 degree – this can be adjusted easily. Orbs can be adjusted ether by a accessing a dialog from a long-press or from the Chart Calculations/Settings Menu:
