SoftStar Astrology Software Weblog

My "love affair" with astrology software began in 1978, when a grateful client gave me the money for my first microcomputer (as they were then called). Things were so primitive back then that I had to load my first astrology software via cassette tape, and it took several tries to work. But I was totally hooked when I first saw the planetary positions for a birth chart appear on my 9" green computer screen.

Since then, I've watched an almost unbelievable evolution in astrology software. The programs are so powerful that most astrologers will never use half of the features of the best programs. And they're so friendly that even children can run them. And the graphics and colors are totally beautiful.

I have worked through the years to help the major astrology software firms debug their programs, add new features, and keep the prices down. I've also guided thousands of astrologers to the software that best meets their needs. I've also written a book on astrology software, and software reviews in American Astrology, the Mountain Astrologer, and the AFA bulletin.

Remember that you can get free astrology software, download free demo versions of professional programs, and read my published reviews and articles to learn more about computer programs for astrology at my web page: The Ultimate Guide to Astrology Software.

And please visit my Learn Astrology Free website, and explore my 150+ free lessons in Western & Vedic Astrology.
