The Top Six Astrology Programs

by Hank Friedman

Many astrologers get overwhelmed trying to choose from the large number of great astrology programs available, so I created this page focusing on the very best. These six programs are truly outstanding and are the ones that are most often purchased by astrologers:

Solar Fire Gold

1. Solar Fire Gold. Probably the best-designed astrology program in existence, Solar Fire Gold has both incredible ease-of-use and unparalleled capabilities.

It is designed for astrologers who want wonderfully implemented features, easy customizing, and great graphics, and has very brief interpretations built-in.

Its top features include superbly executed chart animations, an easy to use and versatile Page Designer, and a great predictive graph.

You can learn more about it here and here, and order it at the best price here.


2. Sirius. Sirius is an incredibly powerful astrology program with the largest, most accurate, and most frequently updated time-change atlas, and the best database of mundane, event, and famous people's charts.

It is deeply versatile, (and includes all of Kepler's features), plus extensive functions for many schools of astrology including modern Western, Vedic, Huber, Hellenistic, Cosmobiology, Fixed Stars, Asteroids, Harmonics, and more.

It has a useful Rectification module (for advanced astrologers only), a beautifully-designed what-you-see-is-what-you-get Page Designer, a complete Business Manager, full Fixed Star, Asteroid, and Vedic reports, and much, much more.

You can learn more about Sirius here and here.


3. Kepler.

Kepler has pioneered several harmonic techniques (including harmonics for synastry), was the first program to add pop-up charts, extensive Vedic features, stunningly beautiful artistic chart wheels, advanced astrological modeling methods, 47 lessons in astrology, and full astrological encyclopedia, and more.

It offers many astromapping methods, including theme mapping (e.g. the places where love, or business, etc. are optimal.), offers unique theme-based predictive graphs (showing times when business, romance, etc. are more activated), midpoint compatibility, an extensive Fixed Star catalog, and an incredible number of other capabilities.

Among the greatest strengths of the Kepler program are its excellent time-change atlas. Kepler also has many built-in reports including fine short natal, compatibility, degree meaning, relocation, and harmonic reports.

You can learn all about Kepler here, here, and here.


4. Janus. Janus is the "best buy" of astrology software. It has much of the power of the more expensive programs but is incredibly inexpensive.

In addition, it has many unique features including full natal, transit, compatibility, and relocation reports built in, an extensive bibiography, unique traditional astrology features, and more.

You can read about it here, and order it at the best price here.

Shri Jyoti Star

5. Shri Jyoti Star. Shri Jyoti Star is the most powerful Vedic astrology program in existence. It has two incredible page designers (for the screen and for printing), more tables of information than any other program, phenomenal research features, and much more.

(Note: Vedic programs cannot interpret Vedic charts, because they can't take enough factors into account.)

You can learn all about it here, and order it at the best price here.

Regulus Platinum

6. Regulus Platinum. Regulus Platinum is incredibly inexpensive and has amazing modern Western, Huber, Fixed Star, Arabic Part, Asteroid, Vedic, Astro-Mapping, Midpoint, Harmonic, and Lunation modules, the only predictive graph that inserts stations into the time lines, and more.

It has only short natal and transit interpretations and no add-on reports, and so is not for the astrologer looking for delineations in their software.
