Eclipse – Solar and Lunar
See also a more recent eclipse knowledge base articles :
Eclipse positions are not progressed (when selecting Sec. Prog. or Solar Arc). Eclipse positions (single-wheel or bi-wheel) are the actual eclipse positions, ie transits.
Eclipse positions are not shown for Synastry Charts
All eclipse times are for the time of maximum eclipse
Eclipse aspects can be conjunction to planets/points only or a range of aspects can be selected. See teh screenshot above.
Eclipse aspect orb
The eclipse aspect orb can be user-defined. One degree is recommended. See the screenshot above.
Eclipse conjunction to South Node
This is shown as an opposition (eg typical Eclipse/Antiscia/Fixed Stars listing)
The eclipse positions show above are arrange to show:
Solar and Lunar eclipses before and after the date of birth. So there is one Solar eclipse before the date of birth and one after the date of birth, similarly, Lunar Eclipses are calculated and listed this way.
Fixed Stars and Antiscia
Fixed stars aspects and antiscia aspects are displayed starting with the smallest orb.
To preserve the integrity of the display it is not always possible to list all aspects/positions.
Note: long-press over the aspect grid/listing brings up the Aspect Table – so all aspects can be reviewed. See screenshot below.
Why you won’t find a Lunar Eclipse on the 18th August 2016, listed by AstroConnexions:
Eclipse Table and Aspects
Full Landscape Settings
Full Landscape additions (with Eclipse Table)
New aspect grid design
(recommended: 1-degree orb for bi-wheel charts )
Bi-wheel – fractional part (mantissa) of aspect is shown in the grid if the aspect is less than 1 degree. Hence the recommended one-degree orb. If the aspect separation is over 1 degree, ie an orb of over 1 degree is set, the aspect separation value is shown as a whole number.
Setting the orb, for example, at 2 degrees. For instance, if the aspect separation is 0:26 (0 degrees, 26 minutes) this would be shown as 0 in the grid. If the aspect separation is 1:26 (1 degree, 26 minutes) the aspect separation would be shown as 1.
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.

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 if the separation is less than 1 degree, ie the orb setting is 1 degree.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.
If the orb setting is over 1 degree then the whole number of the separation is shown.
