Hi there - just to let everyone know that Planetdance is a seamless install on Linux OS under Wine. I have used Jean's software for many years on Linux Mint (various versions) with a number of desktops. At the moment I am using XFCE.

Hi - the following may be of interest to Mac users. Thanks to Nefgem.

hello everyone, i would like to share here a possibility i use to make planet dance work on mac. which may be of interest to mac users who do not want to emulate a heavy solution.
I did a re-install on H-sierra, but it worked under el capitan.
you will absolutely need to install
1 XQuartz for mac
https://www.xquartz.org
2 WineBottlerCombo_1.6.1 (or maybe higher)
https://winebottler.kronenberg.org
define a PC / wine / folder
I haven't tried later versions yet
I hope that this will work for you
Thanks to Jean for being able to preserve the possibility of running Planet Dance with Wine.

Classic, Medieval, Vedic / Topic based lots
« on: February 04, 2021, 08:51:50 PM »
Hi there - here is the way to calculate lot positions by topic rather than degree. The example Chart is Beethoven, available in the planetdance database. We will look at the example of the Lot of Jupiter (Victory) in this chart.

The first thing to note is that the signs are always counted in zodiacal direction. The next thing is that you have to count from the topic position of Jupiter to the topic position of daimon for the night chart.

JU = Capricorn/3rd topic
DA = Scorpio/1st topic (the zodiacal position is in Libra, the 12th topic, calculated from degree to degree).

Note that if you count from Jupiter to the zodiacal position of Daimon you aren't comparing topical positions of the lots and planets. Jupiter is in its topic position, but Daimon in this instance (in the 12th) would have been calculated by degree.

If you start at Jupiter and count off the signs in zodiacal order I get 11 to the TOPIC position of Daimon in Scorpio. The topic containing Jupiter is counted as 1. 11 Signs from the horoskopos is of course the 11 topic position = Virgo. So the Lot of Jupiter moves to the 11th topic/Virgo using this system, from Leo, its position calculated by degree.

See attached screenshot to follow the working.

Planetdance for windows / Tyl Chart Synthesis
« on: December 23, 2020, 11:10:47 AM »
Hi there - I'm working on a new module for Planetdance called Tyl Chart Synthesis. This module will recreate the methods of the late, great US astrologer Noel Tyl. Noel developed a clear astrological methodology over his long career and the key features will be incorporated into this module. Tyl published many books and articles in which he explained how working.

For an online summary see:

http://www.noeltyl.com/techniques.shtml

Click the menu button at the bottom of the page to access more information.

See the screenshot for a view of the early prototype.

Best wishes. Ed

Planetdance for windows / Lifetime Directions and Progressions
« on: October 24, 2020, 06:55:17 PM »
There is the new module for Planetdance. You can find it under the Time menu:

Time-Tools: Lifetime Directions and Progressions: module that calculates 100 years of directions or progressions for the solar return date/time for the place of birth.

From the Help File: This module shows a circular presentation of the positions of planets at the time and date of each solar return, in relation to the natal chart, over a period of 100 years from birth. The positions are calculated for the place of birth.

Users can choose to display positions for each year after birth for solar arcs, transits (effectively solar returns), naibod arcs, one-degree arcs, mean solar arcs and secondary progressions.

The positions of each planet are shown by a small circle on the natal chart. Retrograde planets at each are shown with a turquoise highlight. On the righthand side of the screen the date and time of each solar return is listed.

Users can calculate a particular directed or progressed chart by clicking on the list entry of the relevant year and using the Menu button in the main window to choose the item Calculate Return. This will calculate the directed or progressed positions for the place of birth and display the chart in the main Planetdance window. The positions calculated are determined by the choice made by the user.

Users can choose the planetary and angular positions to display in the 100 year view by clicking on the relevant check boxes on the left hand side of the screen. Alongside each checkbox, the planet glyph is displayed along with the sign and degree position in the natal chart.

Options Menu

Users can choose whether or not to show the natal planets, planet position lines and house cusps.

Users can opt to show a 'now circle' which marks the current date. This helps to identify the current solar return. The circle will only be shown if the current date falls within the timespan of the graph. By moving the mouse over the graph, users can identify the date and zodiacal position of points of interest.

Users can also opt for thicker lines in the chart wheel, or to use big symbols.

Different combinations of settings can be saved as .flo files and reloaded as required.

There is also an accompanying video on Jean's youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCl7tvTcNZI8Z9mWhZa4iz2Q

Time-Tools: Lifetime Solar Returns: module that calculates 100 years of solar returns for the place of birth.

From the Help File: This module shows a circular presentation of the positions of planets at each solar return, in relation to the natal chart over a set time period. The return positions calculated for the place of birth. The calculations are completed for a 100 year period.

The positions of each planet are shown by a small circle on the natal chart. Retrograde planets at the solar return are shown with a turquoise highlight. On the righthand side of the screen the date and time of each solar return is listed. The positions of the inner planets, Mars and moon are also shown, along with their sign and degree position.

Users can calculate a particular solar return by clicking on the list entry of the relevant year and using the Menu button in the main window to choose the item Calculate Return. This will calculate the solar return for the place of birth and display the chart in the main Planetdance window.

Classic, Medieval, Vedic / Ed Greek Horoscope
« 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
