Heliocentric Charts (and Geocentric charts)

Note that geocentric charts are available/shown by default.

Heliocentric charts will be ready from ver 2.32. Available soon. For Your Charts and Provided Charts, Single and Bi-Wheel. Helio charts are often used in Financial astrology.

How does this work?

When selecting the heliocentric setting (see below – Settings) all saved charts, with some exceptions can be viewed as heliocentric charts.

There are exceptions: see below – Not available/applicable/appropriate:

Creating Charts

No difference. Just create charts as before. Date, time, location etc are saved as usual and the chart is then calculated, when viewed, according to the Geo/Helio setting.

Ingress charts

Viewing a saved geocentric Ingress chart will not show the planetary ingress heliocentrically at 00:00:00 (hours:mins:secs).

To view a planet ingress heliocentrically you must create the chart when the heliocentric setting is selected. See below.
