Sirius Icon copyright Cosmic Patterns Softwre SIRIUS FEATURES 4 continues (in addition to everything that is in Kepler) . . .

FORECASTING: In addition to producing secondary, solar arc, tertiary, minor, and degree-for-a-year progressed chart wheels, both direct and converse, Sirius can also calculate

  • Profections (1 house = 1 year formula), and Ascendant Arc, Vertex Arc, Solar Declination Arc, and Solar R.A. Arc, Naibod Arc, and User-Defined Arc directions, both direct and converse.
  • Easily select from 4 methods of progressing secondary, tertiary, and minor progressions houses.
  • Select whether you wish to use the terms "Secondary Progressions" or "Day-for-a-Year Progressions"
  • Solar, Lunar, and Planet Returns (and also returns to an aspect to the natal planet, such as a demi-return).
  • Calculate Phase Angle Returns, Phase Angle Returns in a Zodiac Sign (Tithi Return in Vedic astrology), and Diurnal Charts using 3 variations of the formula for calculating the Diurnal Chart.
  • Calculate a PreNatal Lunation Chart easily
  • The PreNatal New Moon and PreNatal Full Moon can be selected in Sirius so that you can obtain the New Moon, Full Moon, or the lunation (New Moon if the Moon in the chart is waxing, and Full Moon if the the Moon in the chart is waning).
  • A 3 Diurnal Chart can be selected with the following 3 variations of the calculation: "Sun-Mc Phase Angle Return", "Sun-Mc Phase Angle Return in Right Asc.", and "Sun-Asc Phase Angle Return". A Diurnal Chart is a chart calculated for the time you were born for any day.
  • When you select the Diurnal Chart, you have options to select a number of consecutive charts and also to select a location. These features where implemented in Sirius with great care and attention so you can obtain the information that you really want, and to get it as easily as possible.
  • Produce a Time Line Format forecast with the following 4-planet combinations formed between the transit or progressed chart and the natal chart: Midpoint-to-Midpoint conjunctions and oppositions, Same angle formed in the transit (or progressed chart) and natal chart, and also conjunctions and oppositions that occur in the composite chart.
  • The Jonas astrological birth control method forecast can be produced in time line format. The Jonas method is based on the times that the transiting Sun and Moon are in the same angle as in the birth chart. These 4-planet patterns are used in symmetrical astrology and are gaining increased interest in recent years by several leading astrologers.

To give you a better idea of how these new 4-planet pattern features work, let's look at these new features in a little more detail. In Sirius there are check boxes available when you customize a Time Line Format forecast for selecting "Transiting Midpoint to Natal Midpoint", "Composite Chart of Transit Chart and Natal Chart", and "Same Angle of Same Planets". These are the only 3 ways in which the same planets in the transiting and natal chart can form a powerful symmetrical pattern.

When, for example, the transiting Sun/Jupiter midpoint is aligned (conjunct or opposition) the natal Sun/Jupiter midpoint OR the composite Sun and composite Jupiter (that is, the composite position of these planets formed between the transits and natal chart) are aligned OR the transiting Sun-Jupiter angle is the same as the natal Sun-Jupiter angle (also known as a phase angle return or a mixed midpoint alignment), then a powerful interaction of the transiting Sun and Jupiter with the natal Sun and Jupiter occurs and we can expect the days when this influence is within orb to be a very powerful Sun-Jupiter day for the person. We can expect the person to be expansive, optimistic, and to attract new opportunities. With Sirius you can see these influences in the Time Line Format not only between transiting and natal planets but also between progressed and natal planets.

  • An option to see symmetrical patterns between planets that are not the same (for example, transiting Sun and Jupiter in relationship to natal Mercury and Venus). The ability to see these powerful 4-planet patterns opens new doors in astrology. Because these patterns were not easy to see until now, astrologers have not been able to explore these ideas with the ease and simplicity as can be done with Sirius.
  • The customizing of time line format, transiting and progressed text listings, and interpretive reports is easier in Sirius. We have moved the customizing buttons to tabs so that you can quickly and easily browse through the settings without having to return to a previous menu of selections.

ASPECTS: The selection of aspects is easy and elegant, and organized. You can also display a bar that shows the sign the transiting or progressed planet is in, and also a bar for the house that it is in.

Select specific combinations of transit-to-natal aspects rather than selecting a set of aspects that are applied to all of the transiting and natal planets selected.

ASTEROIDS ON TIMELINE FORECAST: Include up to ANY 8 asteroids as transiting (or progressed) or natal planets in the Time Line Format! Easily change any of these 8 transneptunian planets to be any asteroid. You can for example, see that transiting Eris or Sedna is conjunct a planet in your chart, or that transiting is Sun is conjunct natal Varuna today.

ASTROSIGNATURE & ELECTIONAL FORECAST: Astrosignature and Electional Forecast Graphs can be produced for a single day in Sirius, with calculations being performed periodically through the day. You can select how often the calculations are performed, and you can also select only part of the day.

For example, you could look at 9 AM to 2 PM with calculations every 10 minutes, or look at the entire day with calculations done every half hour. With this new feature you can, for example, run an Electional Forecast for Business Success, select a date (let's say it is February 10 for example), and then select February 10 to see the fluctuations that occur throughout the day. In order to provide this feature the influence of the Moon and/or the Asc and MC and house placements is included. A convenient check box appears when you are doing a 1-day detail analysis so that you can easily turn on or turn off either the transiting house cusps or the transiting Moon.

Ability to select place: Also important to make this graph meaningful is the ability to select a place for the calculations, for times to be in local clock time, and not GMT and for changes in daylight saving time to be automatically detected.

Astrological influences that can be included in the AstroSignature and Electional Forecast Graph: planetary dignities, void of course Moon, and the planetary hour. Include the transiting Asc and MC.

Classical Electional Graph: In Sirius you can select a Classical Electional Graph based on each of the 7 visible planets and also Classical Electional Graphs based on each of the 12 houses. The Classical Electional Graphs based on the planets use astrological influences like aspects of the ruler of the Asc, Asc sign, planetary hour, the essential dignity of the planet, Ptolemaic aspects, and conjunctions to particular fixed stars.

The Classical Electional Graphs based on the houses use astrological influences like void of course Moon, aspects to ruler of the Asc, and planets in the first house. By using classical rules, Sirius is able to produce a graph that shows how favorable or unfavorable a planet (the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, or Saturn; we refer to the Sun and Moon as planets in astrology even though, of course, they are not) is throughout the day.

If, for example, you wish to know the most favorable times for Venus activities, then display the graph of Venus for the day for your place of residence and you have this information presented to you in a graph. Similarly, if you are electing a time that involves primarily the influences of the 7th house and 9th house, you can display a graph for each of these houses to assist you in electing the most auspicious time using methods that were widely used in Medieval Europe and are becoming increasingly popular today.

The Classical Electional Forecasts based on planets are based on the rules provided in the medieval book the Picatrix. An optional set of graphic images of the talismans described in Picatrix can also be purchased.

With the ease of use of having settings directly below the graph, and the ability to "zoom in" to a single day or even just a few hours and to zoom out to view months at a time, the AstroSignature and Electional Forecast Graphs enable you to see how a particular area of interest is affected at different times.
