MEANINGS: Sirius can
produce a list of degree meanings of planets according to Dane
Rudhyar's Sabian symbols and also according to 10 other authors
of degree meaning books. In addition to this feature, Sirius has
the ability to also produce Sabian Symbols for the planets
based on the original Sabian Symbols published
by Marc Edmund Jones directly from the information provided by
comes with about 1,500 asteroids.
The customizable "My
Asteroids List" in Sirius includes a listing of about 650 asteroids
used commonly by astrologer Demetra George can be produced in Sirius.
This list has formatting features, such as removing
right ascension, speed, etc. if desired, and to have the asteroid
in columns, and also to print with 2 different size fonts. You
purchase an optional 38,000 additional asteroids CDs.
ASTROLOGY FEATURES: In addition to the harmonic features
that are in Kepler, Harmonic Age Charts can also be calculated
automatically. A Harmonic Age Chart is a chart calculated based
on the age
on a given date. Sirius also calculates fractional harmonic charts,
rather than only harmonic charts that are whole integer numbers.
introduces Integrated Listings. These are listings that combine
different kinds of information in a report. For example, you can
produce a listing of the solar return positions for about 100 years
life), with aspects in the solar return chart, aspects between
the solar return and natal chart, and optionally also monthly progressed
Asc and MC solar return cusps, with a choice of 4 calculation methods
for these progressed solar return cusps: Naibod, Wynn Cycle, Mean
Sun, and Wynn Cycle in zodiac instead of by RAMC. A list of lunar
return and planetary return positions can also be produced. These
listings provide a way of seeing influences over many years as
alternative to looking at the return chart wheels, and other kinds
(AUTOMATIC): This Rectification is elegant,
automatic, flexible, and powerful.
We used some
of the computing power that we developed for AstroSignatures
to create the new Rectification feature, and the result
is spectacular. Simply enter life changing events in your
life then Sirius will do the chart rectification process for
- Sirius produces a graph that visually
shows the likelihood of various
times. Customizing the AstroSignatures used in the rectification
- AstroSignature such as marriage,
accident, etc. that
you can view and customize are provided. Select the forecast
methods you wish
then a line
is displayed that indicates the likelihood of birth throughout
can now visually see the likelihood of different times
of birth according to the techniques and AstroSignatures
being used and
you can much
more easily see what astrological influences are in effect
produced the scores.
- You can select the range of time
the day desired
and how often you wish calculations performed. For
example, if you are fairly certain that a person was born between
12 noon and 3 PM
there is no reason to analyze the rest of the day,
choose to perform calculations every minute or every
few minutes. When calculating
for an entire day, it is more likely you will perform
calculations less often so that the processing is faster.
All of these
selections are very easily selected on the screen and
you can adjust them
very easily as you work to narrow down what time
a person was born.
SKY MAP: In
Sirius the constellations can be displayed, you can zoom in or
the Sky Map to see greater detail, and you animate the Sky
Map to watch it move! This beautiful Sky Map is a fabulous tool
teaching as well as for exploring how the planets are actually
placed in relationship to particular fixed stars and constellations.
addition to the Vedic features that are in Kepler, Sirius has
these additional features:
- In the chakra (North Indian or
South Indian chart) you can place the chara karaka and bhava
- Select whether you
want the minutes and also the
degrees of the positions, and whether you prefer glyphs,
letters, or a
number for zodiac signs and also whether house numbers
are displayed. This greater flexibility allows you to have
the chakra in a style
that is comfortable for you.
- Calculate which sign
is stronger using either the rules of N. Rao or S. Rath.
- Shad Bala values using any
of the following tables to display: Basic information, Shad
Bhava Arudha, Special lagnas, and the Dasas. Having this information
in a scrollable window with the chakras preferred in another
scrollable window makes the Vedic features in Sirius very intuitive
for the consulting Vedic astrologer and for students as well.
can produce a very nicely formatted Panchanga Table.
MUHURTA: Sirius can
Muhurta Tables for a large number of different areas of interest.
As is typical of Sirius, these
features are flexible, attractive, and technically accurate.
VEDIC PLANETARY STRENGTH: Produce a flexible listing of Vedic planetary strengths
table. You can
easily select the rules desired
according to about a half dozen different Vedic astrology authorities.
NEW REPORT IN OTHER LANGUAGE:
In Sirius the Cosmo
Natal Reports is available in Italian and Swedish. This report
can also be produced in different languages such as English, Spanish,
Portuguese, French, German, Norwegian, and Japanese.
Sirius the research features are easily accessible.
- In Sirius you can produce an Astrosignature
Forecast Graph, just as you could in Kepler, but in Sirius you
can also produce a graph
of financial values (such as a market index like the Dow Jones
Industrial Average, or a commodity value such as gold prices)
or other performance
values, obtain the correlation value between the actual values
and the predicted values, and whether the correlation is statistically
- This feature, combined with
some of the new research features in Sirius to find patterns
in data, was used to create the
Gold Forecast option that is an optional add on to Sirius,.
The Gold Forecast forecasts short-term
gold prices with
- Also, stock price data for a number
of companies is already included with Sirius so you can start
astrology right away, and other financial data can be imported
from web sites.
INTELLEGENCE RESEARCH: There
is also an Artificial Intelligence feature, which is an analysis
AstroSignature to determine
which factors in the AstroSIgnature
are most effective and which ones are less effective, or possibly
even reducing, the accuracy of the AstroSignature.
- You can also correlate an AstroSignature
for birth charts with scores. For example, you can correlate psychological
test scores or other
performance scores with the AstroSignature scores and even
perform a t-test (a statistical test) to determine if the correlation
significant, all right within Sirius without ever having to
export the data to a statistics program! Of course, you would
to have performance scores for the charts and assign a score
to each chart in order to do this, and this capability is provided
When doing AstroSignature Research, the Details WIndow appears in
the upper left corner automatically, without having to manually select
it. A panel next to the Details Window makes it easy to select a particular
chart and even view a popup wheel of the chart!
ASSUMPTIONLESS RESEARCH: In
addition to the assumptionless research that are in Kepler,
we added more this feature in Sirius. From
and Harmonic Patterns" button in Sirius, you can now select "Midpoint
Aspects Midpoint", "Midpoint Structure Analysis",
and "Harmonic Pattern Analysis" to identify the midpoint
and harmonic patterns that occur most often in a group. A window
with several tabs for viewing the results in different ways makes
this a powerful feature for serious researchers.
number of charts included in Sirius is over 40,000. The additional
data provides you
more data of famous people and research data for you to work with.
- Sirius allows you
to have notes of unlimited length for charts.
- A very
powerful feature of Sirius is that you can assign
an unlimited number of
keywords to a chart, so, for example, you can assign keywords
like "pianist", "heart
disease", and "alcoholic" to a pianist who
also was an alcoholic and died from heart disease. You can
research based on these keywords and also access charts
- Also, it is not necessary to calculate
charts before researching
them. Sirius will automatically calculate any uncalculated
provides several new kinds of AstroMaps in addition to the AstroMaps
that are also in Kepler:
Asteroids AstroMap. This is a simple "Just Lines" Map
of any asteroid lines that you wish to place in an AstroMap. If
you own the 38,000 asteroids option, you can select any of these
asteroids. Otherwise, you can select from among about 1,500 asteroids.
You are no longer limited to seeing influences of planets in AstroMaps.
Now you can select any asteroids to view as well.
Fixed Star AstroMap: Lines
of the fixed stars are shown on the AstroMap. If you select the
option to display the fixed star map lines in mundo,
then you can see where fixed stars rise, set, culminate, and anti-culminate,
which is something that was regarded in ancient systems of astrology
and by modern astrologers as well. WIth both an Asteroids AstroMap
and Fixed Stars AstroMap, you can explore many more possibilities.
Fixed stars played a prominent role in ancient astrology and perhaps
they should in our astrology today as well. With tools like this,
we can see how fixed stars are operating in charts. We can look
to new articles and books by professional astrologers and researchers
as they use these tools to easily see astrological influences that
otherwise would be extremely difficult to calculate.
The Zenith AstroMap should perhaps be called
a "Zenith and
Nadir AstroMap" because it shows points on the map where
fixed stars would appear directly overhead (at the zenith) and directly
beneath you (at the nadir). This map is actually a mapping of the
constellations onto the Earth and shows the places where a fixed
star has a particular powerful effect in a relocated chart. The
are literally mapped onto the globe of the Earth and now for the
time we can easily see exactly where they are placed on the Earth.
RELOCATED WHEEL: Click on an AstroMap to
see a Popup Wheel of the relocated chart at this location.
You can also click on the AstroMap
to determine distances between points and to obtain an AstroMap
interpretation of that location.
ASTROLOCATLITY REPORT: The
interactive interpretation that appears in Sirius and can also
be produced as the AstroLocality
Report. At the end of this report includes the interpretations
for conjunctions of the relocated angular cusps to fixed stars
and the score on
various themes, such as Love and Romance Score, Vocation and
HURRICANE PATH: For astrologers
interest in AstroMeteorology, it is now possible to view hurricane
on an AstroMap and
also to download additional
hurricane data and import it so that these hurricane paths can
also be viewed.
