Astrology Software Reviews

Updated September 2018

My reviews were published in American Astrology and The Mountain Astrologer.
They have been error-checked by the software makers, and are factually correct.

If you plan to purchase software, please understand:
  • I will do my best to help you find the best software for your needs.

  • While my reviews don't focus on what's weak, missing, or problematic in programs, I know their strengths and weaknesses and can guide you.

  • I know which companies offer fine customer support and which ones don't, and also provide support myself via email.

  • My expert guidance is free. If you decide to purchase software, I just ask that you do so through me. You'll get the best price, and the software will be fully registered to you, shipped directly from the company, and with their full customer support.

  • Questions? Email me For more information about any program, for guidance in selecting software, or to purchase many of the programs mentioned here at a discount, you can contact Hank Friedman via email
