Title: Ed Greek Horoscope
Post by: ABer on September 02, 2020, 08:52:19 AM
Hi there - Ed Greek Horoscope is due for a re-write. It's nearly three years since Jean and I worked on the original version of the module. It will be a long job to do this, so I am planning to work on it over the winter period.

If you have any feature requests or suggestions please put them in this thread.

The aim will be to include dynamic functionality (see new version of Medieval Traditional Chart) into the module and improve the interface.

The display is likely to include a combination of tabbed data screens with additional windows.

I can't promise to do everything, as the script is already extremely complicated, but do ask for additional features if you think they would add value to the module.

I'd be grateful if you could include sources or references for any techniques you wish to have included.

In order to preserve the integrity of the module, I will include only Hellenistic and classical techniques as the broad aim of the script is to show the horoscope as it might have been used by Greco-Roman astrologers.

Best wishes. Ed

I'm not sure about this but i'm having second thoughts about the best size of a script, in short, it's a pity that we have to support the laptop screensize. A recent poll at facebook showed a clear majority using full hd. And people using full hd are sometimes complaining about too small size. To be honest, i wouldn't mind if an important script like your greek would be full hd. I think if an astrologer is serieus about the software he'd use a decent monitor. But it's a tricky call.

Hi there - I'm preparing a significant update of Ed Greek Horoscope. This will be v.14.48, the largest update since November 2018. It will included new features, mainly in the aspect functions, but many code improvements and bug fixes. I will also record a series of videos to support the release. These will be available on Jean's youtube channel.

Hi there - this is an example of the output that will be available. This gives some guidance to the relation of each planet to the sun, planetary speed and so on.

Thanks. Ed

Hallo Ed, ik heb momenteel een radix waarbij de Zon partiel de Asc valt volgens de opgegeven geboortetijd. Doordat ze echter in de graad een 30-tal boogminuten verder staat, rekent de module het als een nocturnale radix. Ik zou het fijn vinden mocht ik in zulke twijfelgevallen zelf de mogelijkheid hebben om de keuze te maken voor een diurnale of een nocturnale beschouwing. Het is zeker niet onmogelijk dat tot een speling van een 3-tal graden iemand toch eerder diurnaal dan nocturnaal in het leven staat. Is dat een mogelijkheid denk je om zo'n aanpassing te doen en zelf de keuze te laten zodat beide mogelijkheden kunnen bekeken worden bij een geboorte zo nauw bij de Asc? Dank je wel voor je overweging.

For me this touches a important issue. It's the same as a planet in the first or last degree of a sign close to ingress. A minute later or earlier and the sign changes. I do admit the validity of the request but this is just the way it works. You would not ask me to give an option to make 29.59 aries into 00.01 taurus now would you? :)

Maybe Ed is willing to give such an option in your case but this is how it looks to me. Why don't you change the birthtime a bit if you feel someone is definitely night or day sect?

Hi there - can you send me the data of the case please and then I can take a look at it. These are interesting charts and the questions often comes up about diurnal/nocturnal where the sun is very close to the ascendant.

Thanks. Ed

Hey Ed, dit zijn de gegevens
į11/10/1952 om 07:00 uur te Ravels (BelgiŽ)
Met als resultaat zowel Zon, als Saturnus partiel de Asc tussen de 17 en 18 graden Weegschaal!
Groetjes, PJ

Hi PJ - thanks for the data. I've checked the chart - it's a very interesting case! I'm not sure about including a switch for sect, to change nocturnal to diurnal and back again. Sect is very integral to the script and many of the methods and it would be a challenge to debug all the code. When I have these cases I tend to cast the chart with the data as given, and then experiment by altering the time using the up/down buttons on the toolbar to alter the minutes. You can then open the Greek Horoscope module and check the changes. If you do Horoscope-Save As and create a second chart, then you can open Ed Greek for each chart and compare side by side.

Let me know what you think of this option.

Ed

my advice in the first place.
You can also duplicate a chart.

Hey Ed en Jean,
Het veranderen van de tijd is inderdaad de eenvoudigste oplossing nu. Mochten jullie het ooit zien zitten om het bij in het script te kunnen verwerken dan hoor of lees ik wel ter gepaster tijd bij PD vermoed ik.
Bedankt om er toch even tijd voor te maken.
groetjes, PJ
Title: Re: Ed Greek Horoscope
Post by: Jean on December 01, 2020, 09:27:22 PM
Ik dacht dat je vroeg om een optie om de sect te veranderen. Maar je bedoelt eigenlijk pijltjes om de tijd te veranderen. Dat vind ik dan wel legitiem.
Title: Re: Ed Greek Horoscope
Post by: Pretty Joyfull on December 02, 2020, 09:56:18 AM
Hey Jean, mijn vraag was wel degelijk om van sect te kunnen veranderen! Maar ik hoor dat dat op dit moment geen optie blijkt om dit voor elkaar te krijgen. Geen probleem. Dan doe ik het inderdaad wel door de tijd te veranderen.
Bedankt voor jullie inzet, PJ

Title: Re: Ed Greek Horoscope - v.14.173
Post by: ABer on January 04, 2021, 06:37:43 PM
Hi there - I am releasing the latest update for Ed Greek Horoscope today. This is v.14.173. There is a minor bug fix for the legend display, plus the ability to show lots in the outer wheel calculated from topic to topic. This means the lot position is solely determined by its place in a whole sign, rather than the specific degree that it occupies.

4 January 2021

Horoscope-Classical-Ed Greek Horoscope: v.14.173 -  bug fix for fortune glyph in legend, includes display of topic-based lots in outer wheel, updated help file

From the Help File:

Users may add lots to the outer wheel display using the 'Outer Wheel Display' menu. These lots can be clicked on and off as the user wishes using the 'Choose Additional Lots' menu. The additional lots are ones that typically appear in the classical literature. Most are from Valens, but others were widely used including Exaltation and Basis. Users can choose between showing lots calculated from degree to degree, or lots that are calculated from topic to topic (without consideration of the degree). For further reference see the resources menu.

See screenshot for a sample.

Thanks. Ed
