    Primary Directions Tests and Comparisons – tropical and sidereal.

    Updated 11th August 2023. Expected release approx 16th August 2023. AV ver 2.86.

    Please note that all AC views, procedures, modules are subject to change without notice. But every effort will be made to bring PD’s to AC asap as described here.

    AC will have PD directions through the bounds, aka Egyptian terms to the ASC, and directions to the Desc and IC. Currently not shown in any AC screenshot.

    Here’s an excellent introduction to Primary Directions.

    Astrological Predictive Techniques | Primary Directions | 1. Ascensions and Bounds

    This post shows AC’s primary direction calculations in comparison with :

    • Valens (Mac)

    • Morinus (Windows)

    • Astro.com (internet)

    • Astro Gold ver 9 (Windows)

    Note Valens and Morinus invariably agree in their results as Valens is a slimmed-down version of Morinus.

    Example Chart: King Charles III, aka Prince Charles: Tropical. Placidus cusps

    Note that all King Charles III charts have their lat and long adjusted to match the Astro.com chart so that comparisons are geographically valid.
