"Hank Friedman is the only person on Earth
who understands astrology software better than I do"
Mark McDonough, creator of AstroDatabank.
I've been evaluating astrology software for over 35 years, and have examined almost every astrology program released. After writing my book Astrology on Your Personal Computer, I began reviewing astrological software for The Mountain Astrologer, the AFA Bulletin, and American Astrology.
Thousands of astrologers rely on my expertise in choosing exactly the right astrology programs to meet their needs, and I continue to help and guide people around the world. I offer this service for free, just asking you to purchase your astrology programs -- at the best price -- through me. The best way to reach me is to contact me via email.

Astrology is a language as much as an art. It describes the nature of life, the fabric of the universe. Every astrological factor is an archetype encapsulating hundreds of different themes. Saturn, for example, symbolizes everything from cold,old,declining, depressed, and limited to focused, impeccable, aligned, integral, responsible, and committed.
We need to become artists, writers, and speakers fluent in the magical language of astrology.
