Some of the astrological reasons for this are in Elvis's geocentric chart, but most of it was in his Heliocentric chart. One main reason Elvis projected so much sexuality is that he was blessed with a double Grand Trine centered on Juno, the planet that rules sexuality and illusions. But you would have not know about this if you did not include Ixion and Orcus, which are two of the Trans-Neptunian Dwarf Planets we told you about recently.
But Elvis owes his super charged success and fame to the Magical Fortress in him Heliocentric chart, which is below:. Jupiter, Juno, Chiron, Mars are symbolic of super success through male sexuality Elvis' famous bump and grind. Unfortunately for Elvis, he succumbed to his two self-destructive aspects we illustrate in his above birth charts. You can also use Heliocentric Magi Astrology and the Trans-Neptunian Dwarf Planets to learn more about anyone else and everyone in your life. We wrote the above lesson to help you to understand matters you could not possibly understand without using the principles of Magi Astrology.
Only Magi Astrology knows how to interpret a Heliocentric Chart - which does not have houses or ascendant or Midheaven. But another huge advantage of Magi Astrology is that you can know so much without having any exact times of birth. Furthermore, even if we think we have found an accurate time of birth, the time is almost never accurate. Here is why:. The times of birth on birth certificates are almost never accurate. Or a doctor may just put in a time from memory after he leaves the delivery room.
For all the above reasons, the exact time of birth found on birth certificates is NOT reliable! Through the Magical Lens of Magi Astrology, we actually know more than Traditional Astrology could ever know about Jeremy Lin, and anyone else you wish to know more about. The techniques and principles of Magi Astrology are revolutionizing astrology all over the world and giving all who use Magi Astrology an advantage over every one else. Test them out and see for yourself. Magi Astrology is easy to learn and is the only form of astrology that actually helps you to improve your life.

Sunday, July 20, The Lunarium website In my endless and joyous search for effective tools for astrologers, I stumbled upon the Lunarium website. When you place your mouse pointer over any ingress, the website shows you delineations and other important information. You can, and should, configure the calendar for your current location, to ensure the timings are correct.

Tuesday, July 1, When my email is down: An alternate email address for contacting me Wouldn't you know it, on my birthday this year June 27th , my Internet Service Provider was hacked and all emails written to me bounced back to their senders.
I'm sorry if you tried to write to me that day and couldn't reach me.
Here's an alternate email address that you can use if my first one doesn't work: Note: the above is an image, so you can't click on it that's to keep spammers from using it. Tuesday, June 17, The Solar Fire 9 User Guide Because of ecological concerns and printing and shipping costs , astrology software makers and software companies in general have stopped creating printed manuals. Therefore, one often has to use each program's help functions to learn to use the software. Fortunately, Esoteric Technologies has created an online program manual for Solar Fire 9, which you can explore here , to help you learn to use Solar Fire 9.
I also have links to downloadable manuals for previous versions of Solar Fire here and here and here. Each of the downloadable manuals offers a lot, but the last link above is very detailed. Wednesday, June 11, When you order software via download More and more companies are offering their astrology software through me to customers via download. Here are a few important things to know about getting astrology programs via downloads: 1. It might take a up to a day for them to send you the codes, or more if you order late on Friday or on the weekend all companies are closed on the weekend.
I often receive emails from people saying that they didn't get the email. In virtually all cases, the email was sent, but ended up in their Spam or Trash folder. You get the software much faster than by shipping a CD. You get the latest version. Some companies may have slightly older versions burned on the CDs they are shipping. There are no duty fees or delays at customs or the post office.
You can copy the downloaded file to a flash drive or CD for backup. You save on shipping fees. And what you get is the same as would be on the CD or newer. Most people are now choosing to get their software via download, and I've found the process to be very effective. Tuesday, June 3, Solar Writer 2-for-1 sale!
Through June 12th, you can purchase two Solar Writer reports for the price of one or four for the price of two, etc. You can read about them, see sample reports, and view my recommendations here. I originally thought that the reduced price of the Solar Fire upgrade would last through June 6th, but I was just notified that the sale ends on June 2nd! So if you plan to upgrade to Solar Fire 9, I suggest that you do it now.
You can get the update at an even lower price through me through June 2nd here. The answer is "no". But if you do have an earlier version of Solar Fire on your PC, during installation most of your settings will be transferred to the new version. Tuesday, May 6, Evaporating Peaks: Pillars in the Monkey Head Nebula The Monkey Head Nebula also known as NGC is a star-forming region in which bright, newborn stars near the center of the nebula illuminate the surrounding gas with energetic radiation.
Here is a stunning video This video showcasing visible and infrared light views of a collection of pillars along one edge of the nebula. Tuesday, April 29, A large list of free astrology software One of my readers was kind enough to give me a link to a very large number of free astrology programs for PCs, Macs, Linux, Android, the iPhone and more. Also, many of the programs listed have pages written in English, so all you have to do is click on each link.
Tuesday, April 22, Ten things that astrologers should know about astro-computing Many of you probably don't know that I am a computer wizard as well as an astrology software expert. I've built my own PCs, keep up with the latest developments in computer technology daily, and have a huge collection of software utilities. I'd like to share some of my insights here, so that those of you who aren't as computer-savvy can benefit from my experience: 1.
Backup your data. PCs are susceptible to hardware crashes especially hard drives as well as viruses and other malware, and so every astrologer should back up their charts files once a week. Only buy new computer equipment. Not only are used PCs, printers, etc. Last year, my Canon printer of many years finally died. I liked it so much that I bought two different "like new" models of it it had long since been discontinued. Both models failed within months, and I ended up getting a new Canon printer instead.
Practice safe computing. Always have an antivirus program and a firewall running on your PC, and keep them, and your web browser, and all of your other programs up-to-date to ensure that your computer is protected from malware. In addition, never open any attachments to emails or click on links within emails unless you know the person or company that sent it to you.
Never give any personal financial information to anyone via email. The best platform for astrology is Windows. While there are some astrology programs for the Android, Chrome, Linux, iPad, and Mac platforms, they are few and far between. Traditional astrology, Huber astrology, Cosmobiology, astromapping, or Jyotish, for example , only Windows programs will provide you with all of the tools you will need.
The reasons for the paucity of astrology software for other operating systems besides Windows are both the prevalence of Windows PCs over 20x as many as Macs, for example , and the lack of power and storage capacity of many phones, tablets, and phablets, preventing full-fledged programs from being written for them. Check for updates to your astrology programs regularly. Most companies issue updates for their astrology programs regularly. These updates fix bugs, improve the built-in atlases, and add new features and enhancements.
Most programs do not auto-update, so you will need to either visit the company's website or see if the program has a manual feature to check for updates. Get a surge protector or better still a UPS. Voltage surges can fry computer equipment in a second literally! Explore astrology programs and reports before buying any. Since astrology software cannot be returned, it is best to explore samples of astrological reports, and download demos of calculation programs, before purchasing.
A program may, for example, have the functions that you want, but have an interface that you don't like or charts that don't appeal to you. Learn about your software. You will enjoy your astrology software much more if you explore all of the resources for learning about it. On my many websites on specific astrology programs , I offer video and written tutorials and screenshots for many programs.
Most programs also have built-in Help and manuals to assist you. You might also benefit by reading my article, " The Optimal Use of Astrology Software ", which has had many revisions. Pay attention when you enter chart data. In my years of providing support to astrologers using software, I've found that the number one source of errors is entering the wrong data into a program.
I always double-check the birth data I enter into a program before calculating a chart, and recommend this practice to everyone. Get expert advice! I have helped astrologers for over 30 years to get the right programs for their needs. You can email me or read my reviews all of which have been double-checked by the companies making the software or read my comparison articles before getting a program. Additional tip: Check out PCs and hardware before buying them. Computer screens can be full of glare too shiny , keyboards can be hard to press or poorly arranged, printers can produce poor output, and PCs can be slow, so always go to a store and examine the hardware you are considering buying before getting it.
Wednesday, April 16, Help improve the ACS atlas For many astrologers, the ACS Atlas is built-in to their astrology software and provides the coordinates, time zones, and time changes for every chart. Given the ever-changing landscape of time zones and time changes, and even city and country names, keeping the ACS atlas up-to-date with the latest information is an endless occupation. Karen Ryder at Astrolabe is the current "keeper of the flame", the person responsible for fixing problems and incorporating new information, and so if you have any issues with the ACS atlas, or can offer her new time zone info, please write to her at karen alabe.
You will be helping astrologers everywhere. I designed a website that focuses on the new update here. I have written a two part review of it for The Mountain Astrologer, and created a website about it here. The author is very open to my guidance, and Prometheus is rapidly being further developed and improved. There will be many significant updates during this year, all free to those who purchase it in Although I don't have any concrete information about additional astrology software updates coming in , if I am reading the signs correctly, there will be important ones.
And I'm also asked, "Should I wait to buy a program until the new update is released? Wednesday, April 2, Equinox on a Spinning Earth When does the line between day and night become vertical? When its the equinox on planet Earth, a time of year when day and night are most nearly equal.
At an equinox, the Earth's terminator -- the dividing line between day and night -- becomes vertical and connects the north and south poles. You can watch a time-lapse video, displaying an entire year on planet Earth in twelve seconds , of this event here. You can find all of my TMA columns, including this one, here.
Even though virtually every program that runs on later versions of Windows will still run on XP, there is a very serious issue in continuing to operate an XP computer: safety. Microsoft is about to withdraw support for Windows XP, and that means that there will be no security updates, i. Already XP users are likely to be attacked by hackers, malware, and spyware six times more than Windows 7 users. And soon, it's going to get much worse. You can read this article about the current and future issues with XP, and what can be done about them, but I strongly encourage those using Windows XP to move to a Windows 7 computer system.
Windows 7 is stable, easy to use, and much more secure than XP. It has many new and enhanced features, and so I created an entire website all about it at: Solar Fire 9 For the next two months, you can get the update at a doubly-discounted sale price through me here. I am very happy that Solar Fire continues to develop, with new functions, more reports, greater ease-of-use, and more.

It has unique and lovely chart wheels, a pioneering transit graph, a beautiful Planetarium, and a very wide range of features. I encourage you to visit my new website devoted to it, which I will be adding a great deal to shortly.
Wednesday, February 12, The new and free StarFisher astrology program StarFisher is a new free astrology program with an interesting range of features and some unique functions.

It has short natal and transit interpretations, planetary tables including Azimuth and Altitude, "shape charts" showing the occupied houses as shaded without showing planets , major and minor aspects, exact transit and progressed hit listings, a full set of returns including phase angle, semi-and quad-star returns, and fractional returns, as well as biwheels, and many House Systems including Pisa-Krusinski.
You can download the program here. And learn more about it here. Wednesday, February 5, Frequently Asked Questions about Solar Fire I am grateful for all of my website visitors who support my work by purchasing astrology software through me. I just added to my main Solar Fire website a new and useful Frequently Asked Questions page , because some questions keep coming up and you deserve fast answers. I hope that you find it useful.
I will of course continue to add to it as time goes on. You can visit their main website here It provides links to all of the other pages on the site and the latest news about monitoring, satellites, etc. See the listing of Space Weather Alerts here Here you can find graphical timelines, indicies and event reports, dynamic plots, Solar images, and more.

Both sales end on January 6, Wednesday, December 11, Choosing Astrological Report Software I am often asked about interpretation software, because many people want to get report programs, whether for learning astrology, giving reports as gifts, or starting a report business, so I just wrote an article that gives an overview of the choices available and links to sample reports.
You can read my new article here. There are a very wide range of algorithms available, which will be a great resource for the astrological computer programmer. You can find all of the code and more here. For only a few days, you can get Solar Fire Gold plus all of my beautiful Chart Art pages, and links to all of my tutorial videos, at a great discount!

Andrew Foss, my friend and the author of Shri Jyoti Star, and founding President of the British Association of Vedic Astrology, is offering a multi-year training in Jyotisha starting in the Spring of You can learn more about the course and sign up, here. Wednesday, November 20, How often hard drives fail and why you should backup your data In an article online called "How long do disk drives really last?
For the next 18 months drives failed at the rate of about 1. But after three years failures went up to Astrologers are particularly unlikely to backup their hard drives, and therefore most vulnerable to losing all of the birth data they've entered. You should back up your chart file to a flash drive or external hard drive that you disconnect from the system after each backup session at least once a month. Wednesday, November 13, Two-for-one Solar Writer sale I am offering a three-week sale on Solar Writer reports: two reports for the price of one. These reports can be run by themselves or from within Solar Fire.
You can see samples of each report, my recommendations, and the sale itself here. He liked the course so much that he decided to fund it and offer it to everyone for free. The course is divided into eight segments, and covers the entire history of the universe, and focuses on the major turning points, both before and after humans appeared. You can start the course here. Astrologers, scientists, and historians will all learn a great deal from this amazing website. In order to use it successfully, it is important to recognize that there are three different sections, each with its own yellow heading.
I hope it proves useful in combination with the other predictive articles on the Iyer method. I could meet all of my astrological needs easily, and prepare excellent printouts. But times change, and with the introduction of smart phones and tablets, new software was created for mobile devices. Companies dubbed these mini-programs "apps", as they are smaller and cheaper programs specifically designed to run on less memory and the slower processors in smart phones, tablets, and phablets phones that are mini-tablets.
The increased mobility of computer users is why the sales of PCs are on a downward spiral, and the sales of tablets are up. Many people are doing astrology on the go, and astrologers want to have access to their chart collections and astrological capabilities at all times. There are also many novices who don't need or want the power of a professional astrology program initially, so they opt for an app on their phone or tablet instead.
A new trend, which I think is brilliant, is happening now. The astrology software companies with the most foresight have realized that since astrologers are a mobile sort, there is a growing need for apps that work alongside their desktop programs. TimePassages, for example, is now available in both desktop and app versions, and its author is amazed at how many people "graduate" from the app to the desktop program.
Similarly, AstroGold is an app for the iPad that can read Solar Fire Gold files and perform the basic functions needed on the road, and Solar Fire Gold owners are thrilled to have a mobile little brother of their favorite software. This is the wave of the future. Companies will realize that their users need mobile counterparts to their desktop software, or get lost in the dust!
As I've mentioned elsewhere, the one "gotcha" with using mobile devices for astrology is that it's become a "tower of babel" out there. There are many different operating systems on phones and tablets and some can't run any astrology programs. For example, the Windows Surface aka RT and Surface 2 run stripped down versions of Windows and can't run any Windows astrology programs. Tablets running the full version of Windows 8 like the Surface Pro can, of course, run any Windows astrology program. I've just updated perhaps the most important article about astrology software on my website twice.
My latest additions include links to video and written tutorials for all of the major astrology programs, and how to get help and where to call if you have problems with your software. In addition, I've changed my anti-virus recommendation, and provided information on configuring programs to avoid calculation errors.
You can read the latest version here. Cosmic Patterns is hard at work creating a new installation program. Updated Atlas : Cosmic Patterns has the most up-to-date time change information in their software, and they will be updating the much older atlases in the Matrix programs soon. Customer Service : I can confirm that many astrologers complained about Matrix's declining customer service in the past. Now that Cosmic Patterns will be providing the customer support, it will be much, much better. Fixed Bugs : For many years, Matrix was very slow at finding and fixing major and minor software bugs.
Cosmic Patterns has a sterling reputation for fixing software problems quickly and effectively. Cosmic Patterns will also be creating mobile apps, integrating the two company's products, and more. Wednesday, September 25, The Astronomy Picture of the Day I love the website, Astronomy Picture of the Day , because it emails you incredibly lovely and informative space shots every day. You can sign up to receive the pictures here , and learn how to download the entire set of archived photos here. I hope that you enjoy this service as much as I do. Wednesday, September 18, Early Medieval Astrology Glyphs I was fascinated to learn that the earliest appearance of astrology glyphs was in the 10th century.
You can find out more and see what the glyphs for the planets and signs looked like back then, here. Yesterday's essay was on how the modern day calendar was arrived at, and so is definitely worth reading. You can do so here. If you ever need to insert glyphs into articles, make sure to read this one here. Thank you, my readers, for letting me know about new free astrology programs that become available.

You can see the image of the asteroid orbits here. Wednesday, August 7, A History of the Sky for One Year The author of this video placed a camera on the roof of the Exploratorium museum in SF, which captured an image of the sky every 10 seconds, around the clock, for a year.
From these images, he created an array of time-lapse movies, each showing a single day, arranged chronologically, and playing in sync. His intention was to reveal the patterns of light and weather over the course of a year. It's amazing, lovely, Wow! It's been a busy time! Astrology for Windows now has a time-change atlas built-in unique among free programs , and an interface in 15 different languages!

For those who don't know what I'm referring to, if one conducts a short transit scan -- e. I've created a page of instructions on how to fix this issue here. Wednesday, June 19, Cosmic Patterns and Matrix merge!
In the beginning of personal computing, the first company to write astrology software for microcomputers as PCs were initially called was Matrix Software. For many years, they were the only folks to provide astrology programs to the world. In many ways, the programmers at Matrix, and its founder Michael Erlewine, were truly pioneers. They shared programming tips in an ongoing magazine, published a book on programming for astrologers that included algorithms for calculating a huge range of astrological parameters, and introduced the first graphical computer-generated chart wheels.
He and his staff set the bar for excellence in creating the finest interpretive reports, the most updated time-change atlases available, and introduced many new and powerful astrological techniques, including Treasure Maps, advanced transit methods, and much more. The two companies have just merged, moving their operations to Cosmic Pattern's headquarters in Florida. The merger promises a synergy of their relative strengths, and an acceleration of the development of mobile apps.
I look forward to the fruits of this union. Wednesday, June 12, Free GeoNames Atlas Are you trying to find the coordinates for a particular section of or place in a large city, or of an obscure little town? You can also download the entire database here , but you will need a text editor like my favorite UltraEdit that can handle very large files to view and search it.

Its author is gradually adding more and more features, as well as working to improve its internal time-change atlas.

Friday, May 17, My Latest Tutorial Article: A Tale of Three Explosions I am currently teaching a year-long intensive training course synthesizing Western Astrology, Vedic Astrology, and counseling techniques, and one of my students asked me to look at the Boston Marathon explosion. I looked at three major events instead of just the one, and found discovered some amazing patterns.
You can see my recommendations and both sales here. I realized recently that I should list the discount prices that I offer for each program, instead of list prices, in order to help readers make a more informed choice. The new revised version of the article, with my discounted pricing, is here.
Tuesday, April 16, My free astrology software demos page -- Updated I have updated my free downloadable astrology software demos page , adding an updated link for the Janus astrology program. I was recently surprised to receive an email from a Russian reader who mentioned that two of the demo programs offered on my astrology software demo page had false positives when scanned by Kaspersky.
For those unfamiliar with the term, a "false positive" is when an antivirus program erroneously labels a program as infected with a virus. I contacted Kaspersky twice now to report this bug. I did scan both of the files myself, using multiple anti-virus programs, as did their authors, and they are fine and clean of all malware. Postscript: Tuesday, April 16, The two astrology software companies involved have also contacted Kaspersky, but never received any response. Now they are back, and you can find them on my software demos page.
Thursday, March 28, The Top Six Astrology Programs I often here from those visiting my website that it's hard to choose from the many wonderful astrology programs available which to get, so I created a new page to make it easier. Here is my new article focusing on the bestselling and best designed astrology programs. After downloading it, everything worked fine. It's about the Moon's nodes from a very different point of view, and writing it "flowed like water".
I hope you like them. I will be returning to posting articles and videos on astrology software soon, but have been wrestling with restoring my PC it had crashed and then all of my websites went down! Here's an interesting movie showing time-lapse sequences of an eclipse in Australia last November. Friday, February 15, Lovely photos of the Sun An amateur photographer with the same surname as me has taken some amazing photographs of the Sun from his backyard! You can see all of these lovely images here. Saturday, February 9, Earth as Art In , the United States put its first Earth-observing environmental satellite into orbit around the planet.
Over the decades, these satellites have provided invaluable information, and the vantage point of space has provided new perspectives on Earth. Sensors on these satellites can measure light outside of the visible range, so the images show more than what is visible to the naked eye. The images are intended for viewing enjoyment rather than scientific interpretation. The beauty of Earth is clear, and the artistry ranges from the surreal to the sublime.
Earth as art—enjoy the gallery.
Sunday, February 3, Software Demos Updated I have just updated my free software demos web page to include a link to the new set of tutorial videos on Sirius provided by Cosmic Patterns.

I added links to flesh out some of the features mentioned in the article, and updated its contents to reflect the latest versions of each program. Here it is. Monday, January 21, Why you need a backup computer and good recovery tools I had an experience this week that I'd like to share, that might protect others from computer disasters.
I am very protective of my computer, and use many different kinds of programs and utilities to keep it running well: PerfectDisk to keep my hard disk from becoming too fragmented. Bitdefender Anti-Virus Plus , my new favorite anti-malware program, to keep viruses, worms, and spyware at bay. Online Armor Free , an excellent firewall, to keep hackers out. Macrium Reflect Free to back up my hard drives regularly.
Last week, Hard Disk Sentinel notified me that my hard drive was failing. Hard drives can degrade over time and fail without warning, so having this software enabled me to know that I needed to perform an immediate backup to save my latest work, I had backed up my hard drive two weeks ago. My computer did crash, but fortunately, for when I'm traveling, I had already purchased an additional portable ultrabook and copied all of my important programs and chart files to it, so that I could update my website, run charts, etc.
And that's what I'm doing today. While I wait for replacement parts for my desktop computer, I'm able to write to you and update this website on my backup PC. I hope this inspires you to protect your valuable files and writings, too, and to back up your PC often, and perhaps purchase a back up computer. The dramatic explosion was captured in ultraviolet light in the above time lapse video covering four hours.
Of particular interest is the tangled magnetic field that directs a type of solar ballet for the hot plasma as it falls back to the Sun. The scale of the disintegrating prominence is huge -- the entire Earth would easily fit under the flowing curtain of hot gas. The energy mechanism that creates a solar prominence is still a topic of research. As the Sun nears Solar Maximum this year, solar activity like eruptive prominences should be common. Here is the ballet! For those wanting to perform calculations on the go, using smart phones, tablets, and laptops, these online tools can be very valuable.
Here is the article. And here are the links to all of my published Mountain Astrologer articles. Saturday, December 22, The Most Frequently Asked Question about Astrology Software Of late, astrologers have started asking me very often about their software's compatibility with the new Windows 8 operating system. Microsoft created Windows 8 in order to offer a common user-interface between their smartphone, surface tablet, and laptop and desktop computers.
