An Explanation of Specific Calendar Features


Note: If you haven't already, please read my Astrology Calendars article too.

Interpretive Report is a delineation of the aspects for the period in chronological order. (Some events are not delineated, but transit-to-natal aspects usually are).


The Daily Moon image is a graphic depicting the phase of the Moon for each day of the Month. Regulus Platinum has the best image, as it's photographic.


Solar Fire offers the best Eclipse feature, as it goes beyond labeling an eclipse event to indicating the type of eclipse occurring.


Exact Times means showing the exact time of day (in hours and minutes) that each event occurs.


Programs offering the Forward/Back in time feature allow you, at the push of a button, to shift the calendar one interval (e.g. the next or previous month) at the click of a button.


Aspects at month's start is only found in Day Watch, and it shows which events were already within orb at the beginning of the month, i.e. influencing the person.


Save setting sets enables users to save different calendar settings to their own preset, so that you can easily create calendars for many different purposes. E.g. since lunar events occur very frequently, one could save one preset that creates a lunar calendar, and a second preset that creates a calendar with many other events except lunar ones. Or save a third preset that creates a calendar using many predictive events only to major chart points like the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant.


Calendar Samples You can click on any of the links to see a sample of each program's calendar(s).


To learn more about each program's calendar feature, including unique features not shown in the above table, read my SoftStar Muse column in the forthcoming April/May 2020 issue of The Mountain Astrologer.
