As a general rule, all prerelease versions should be used for testing purposes only. Most new features are only partially implemented. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please report any problems with the software and your ideas for improvement to the developer. Thanks for participating! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is a special update to be replaced by a regular, much better documented, update sometime in the near future, perhaps as early as next month. New in TP71 ----------- This is a major special update. New features include a delete chart file command and atmakaraka analysis. The update includes quite a few fixes and improvements to both text and graphics charts (especially the aspect grid). A regular update will, God willing, be available early next month. The analysis module in this update is a mix of both old and new code. The regular update should see full atmakaraka analysis and all new code for sankhya yoga analysis. The improvements in this update include slightly increased statistical significance and significantly increased average integrity score for the 715 public figures. This update yields the best statistical significance ever, but there are still a few charts that score much too high and a great many that score too low. I expect great improvements for individual charts in the planned regular update, aiming to bring the scores for all charts inline with expectations. I no longer expect the average integrity score to rise above 12, and I doubt I can manage to increase statistical significance much further, if at all. Instead I will focus on bringing up more charts from the red categories in the C715 group and bringing down all charts from the blue categories in the T1080. Change details ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * ACA: The new statistics show more charts scoring really low as well as more charts scoring really high. The updated analysis module avoids zero-based factors except for combustion, planetary war and cuspal placement. These factors very rarely hit zero. No major planet can have exactly zero essential dignity by sign, unless all of them completely lack dignity or strength, but with Gola Yoga and for a fallen higher planet, such as Venus, they can come very close. Planetary wars and cuspal placements have to be exact to yield zero dignity or strength. C715 T1080 IH AH Influence: 64.97 61.40 92.88 53.67 --------------------- ----- ----- ----- Debased (%): 50.21 51.07 4.41 74.31 Polarized (%): 48.67 49.76 94.31 54.01 Cusped (%): 5.10 5.40 5.35 3.79 Opposed (%): 22.93 24.13 7.98 47.06 Scorched (%): 9.16 10.23 0.00 17.11 Chained (%): 73.57 75.52 10.14 81.45 Vitiated (%): 70.80 74.96 0.21 83.74 Blocked (%): 87.33 90.48 0.21 96.13 --------------------- ----- ----- ----- Disgrace (%): 85.80 89.16 0.83 93.97 Inferior (%): 45.06 46.57 0.04 67.46 Superior (%): 40.74 42.59 0.79 26.52 --------------------- ----- ----- ----- Integrity: 10.70 7.81 92.11 3.24 --------------------- ----- ----- ----- Category: 2.37 2.01 9 1 Neither the chart for US astrologer Isabel Hickey nor the chart for nazi dictator Adolf Hitler are included in the two chart groups. The same is true for all other charts representing astrologers and dictators. The correct gender has been entered for Isabel Hickey, but no changes have yet been made to any of the other charts. Correct gender info will be entered for all charts after the next regular update. The following is the new chart distribution by category: C715 T1080 1. DR (%): 39.58 51.02 2. Red (%): 19.44 18.24 3. Orange (%): 20.14 17.69 4. Yellow (%): 13.99 9.17 5. YG (%): 2.24 1.39 6. Green (%): 2.38 1.39 7. Blue (%): 1.12 0.56 8. Indigo (%): 0.98 0.56 9.

A regular update may, God willing, be available early next month. Apart from a few fixes, this particular update significantly sharpens the combustion factor, introduces letter grades (A-F) for the six essential dignity levels, and adds atmakaraka summary stats. It also adds gender as an optional extra item to the extended chart information. Gender affects chart analysis by swapping the primary and secondary essential dignity levels for women. This update includes a few important fixes and a preliminary version of the improved residence analysis promised when TP54 was released. It yields the best statistical significance ever, but there are still a few charts that score much too high and a great many that score too low. Great improvements can be expected in the planned regular update that will include a rewrite of the analysis module, aiming to bring the scores for all charts inline with expectations. The changes in this release mostly affect the automatic chart analysis module and the influence list screen, but also include a correction in the default essential dignity table. The integrity scores have changed a lot for many charts. While the average integrity score for the C715 group of charts has risen very slightly, a huge number of charts now score really low. One of the goals for the next regular update is to greatly reduce the number of charts scoring integrity below 8 and also to significantly raise the average integrity score. The sankhya yoga, its ruler (SYR), Saturn and the atmakaraka (AK), the Sun and the Moon will be the most important factors. At last, this preview includes the new category limits to be employed in the upcoming regular update. Two category names have also been changed. Change details ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ * ACA: The automatic chart analysis module has been improved with a new residence analysis, including weighted arithmetic and geometric mean dignities of the links in dispositor chains. Some relatively small, but statistically very significant, changes have been made to the sankhya yoga analysis. The essential dignity of Saturn now affects sankhya yoga dignity. The dignity of planets ruling sankhya yogas above the current also affect the dignity of the current sankhya yoga ruler. Different planets carry different weights when calculating the arithmetic and geometric means of the links in dispositor chains. Also the product of link dignities is weighted. By default this means that the dignity of Jupiter means less than the dignity of Saturn for the dignity bestowed a planet if both planets are links in the target planet's chain of dispositors. The weights are proportionate to the innate influences of the objects in the chain. The dignity of a zero influence object has no impact on the dignity bestowed a planet. An object can often contribute dignified influence to a dispositor even if the object completely lacks essential dignity in the sign it is in. The requirement is that the dispositor chain has some essential dignity. Apart from the essential dignity determined by the sign an object is sitiuated in, the arithmetic mean of the link dignities is the most important value controlling how much dignified influence a dispositor can receive. The Moon is about 25% more influential in this preview. It has been the most important object in the analysis for quite a while now, but its importance is hard to overestimate. Cuspal range has been extended to 3 degrees. This has the effect that only three charts in the T1080 group score above 67, which is inline with the intention to offer certain guarantees for charts scoring in different chart categories (see below). The combustion effect considers retrogradation and selects shorter ranges for Mercury and Venus when applicable. The effect also kicks in later than before and grows faster. Any planet closer than five degrees to the Sun is more than 99% combust. A planet should never be more than 50% combust when more than a degree outside of a core range. There is no combustion effect at 108,3% of a core range. Earlier only the essential dignity of the Sun counted when applying a final dignity reduction for a combust planet. Now the geometric mean of the Sun's essential dignity and that of the planet itself is used. This makes combustion more severe for planets lacking essential dignity in the sign they are placed in, and less severe for planets having essential dignity. These three changes have all improved statistical significance. Letter grades (A-F) for the six essential dignity levels have replaced the previously used initials of sometimes widely unknown internal terms. A raised dot indicates unknown/undefined essential dignity and is treated as the arithmetic mean of C and D. By default no indications come with undefined dignities. The so called crown dignity in earlier previews, more properly called domicile dignity, now gets an A (or a), the exalted dignity gets a B, the assisted dignity a C, the hindered dignity a D, the earlier, so called, debilitated dignity, often called fall, gets an E, and, like before, the lowest dignity gets an F. Gender matters for essential dignity. The chart for a woman with, by default, secondary dignities (especially a, b and c), will see the integrity score rise when the correct gender has been entered in the chart info (turning 'a' to 'A' and 'b' to 'B', etc.). The reverse is true if the chart features mostly primary dignities (turning 'A' to 'a', 'B' to 'b', etc.). If you are using a pointing device, you can click the new chart info label 'Gender' once for a man and twice for a woman. This will enter an 'M' for a man and a 'W' for a woman (unless you have already entered something in the entry field, in which case you can now overwrite it by typing on the keyboard). If you enter an 'm' or a 'w', the 'm' becomes 'M' and the 'w' becomes 'W' when focus leaves the entry field. Default object influences have increased for Uranus (53), Neptune (34), Pluto (10) and the lunar nodes (100), and decreased for Lilith (5). The change for the lunar nodes is minor (98). The AK is still not a factor in the automatic chart analysis, but it will be in the next regular update. There were some wrong stats in one of the previous special updates (TP61). The correct stats are as follows: Mercury and the Sun are the most common atmakarakas in the C715 group, followed by Mars. Venus and Saturn clearly trail the rest. In the T1080 group Jupiter and Venus are the most common atmakarakas, followed by Saturn. In the atmakaraka summary stats, you can now view the average 'dignity' of the atmakarakas for a group of charts. Compared with special update TP60 this update includes a number of fixes and improvements. The chain integrity was wrong in some cases. It was also impossible to completely disable chaining. In addition, in the most recent earlier previews with all factors except debasement disabled, it was impossible to reach the expected 50 percent integrity of the C715 control group. This was due to a compounding of essential dignity for all cases except where the dignity bestowed a planet was 100 percent. These issues have now been resolved. Although the statistical significance comparing average integrities for the T1080 and C715 groups of charts is less impressive using this preview, a number of other results make me favor this preview over the previous and the last regular update. A Canadian serial killer not included in the T1080 group scored greater than 70 percent integrity using TP60. The chart now scores below 52. A fallen atmakaraka, Mars in Taurus, and an otherwise fairly dignified Moon makes the chart likely to score yet lower integrity in the next preview. The Unabomber now scores integrity below average, and Nidal Malik, the pseudo-psychiatrist who killed 13 people and wounded 30 others on a US army base, now scores significantly lower than before, putting his chart in the upper half of the Red category. Both charts feature severely afflicted atmakarakas, Jupiter in Gemini for the Unabomber and Mercury combust for the pseudo-psychiatrist. Josef Fritzl, the Austrian who kept his daughter and the three children he had with her captives in a cellar for 24 years, now scores much lower integrity than in any previous preview. His chart scored above 40 percent integrity using TP54. Now it scores below 20. Thanks to a highly undignified atmakaraka, Jupiter in Scorpio, the integrity score can be expected to drop even further in the next preview. No murderers score above 60 percent integrity using this preview and only three charts in the T1080 group score above 67. All three belong to people convicted of fraud. The two top scorers belong to a man and a woman. The current integrity score is 73 for both charts (TP65). According to classical astrology and supported by empirical tests, manly indications are less favorable for women and womanly indications less favorable for men. The pre-alpha will take gender into account and since the woman's chart features mostly or even exclusively manly indications, the integrity score can be expected to fall below the 67 limit. With the correct gender information entered, it is already below the limit using this update. Saturn as the AK will reduce the score even further. The man's chart features ideal womanly indications including Venus, the SYR, in Taurus. The chart for Josef Fritzl might also see a small additional drop since it too features mostly womanly indications, incl. Venus in Taurus. This preview introduces new category limits. The new limits combine seven essential dignity limits with seven sankhya yoga limits. The fourteen limits overlap each other except for the red and green limits. Two categories have been renamed. The Black category is now called Dark Red and the Gray category is called Yellow Green. In the software they are abbreviated DR and YG. Integrity < 4 => 1. Dark Red (DR) Integrity < 8 => 2. Red (at least Yuga Yoga) Integrity < 16 => 3. Orange (at least Sula Yoga) Integrity < 33 => 4. Yellow (at least Pasa Yoga) Integrity < 42 => 5. YellowGreen (YG) Integrity < 58 => 6. Green Integrity < 67 => 7. Blue (at least Kedara Yoga) Integrity < 84 => 8. Indigo (at least Dama Yoga) Integrity < inf. => 9. Violet (at least Veena Yoga) The new statistics show more charts scoring really low. This is due to factors being multiplied together and also the use of a geometric mean in many places, which results in a great number of dispositor chains scoring zero, or very close to zero, dignity. The rewritten analysis module will avoid zero-based factors except for combustion, planetary war and cuspal placement. These factors very rarely hit zero. No planet can have exactly zero essential dignity by sign, unless all planets are situated opposite their domiciles, but with Gola Yoga or Saturn as atmakaraka and for a fallen higher planet, such as Venus, they can come very close. Planetary wars and cuspal placements have to be exact to yield zero dignity or strength. The rewrite will hopefully result in a significantly raised average integrity score for the C715 group. Another goal is to have as few charts as possible score below 8, the new upper limit for the Red category. All salesmen, players, puritans, sex offenders and frauds should score below 67, the new upper limit for the Blue category. All violent criminals should score below 58, the new upper limit for the Green category. They should also score inferior disgrace at least half the integrity. All psychopaths, rapists, torturers and serial killers, and at least 99 percent of all other murderers, should score below 42, the new upper limit for the YellowGreen category. They should also score inferior disgrace greater than integrity. All thieves and psychotic people should score below 33, the new upper limit for the Yellow category. They should also score superior disgrace greater than integrity. In addition, all druggies and psychotic people should have a clearly malignant Jupiter. At least 85 percent of all extra-ordinary violent criminals and at least 95 percent of all sadists, serial killers, serial or child rapists and pseudo-psychiatrists should score integrity below 16, the new upper limit for the Orange category. All perpetrators of extra violent crimes, most obviously sadistic killing, emotional abuse, massmurder and war crimes, but also violence against old people, children and animals, should score inferior disgrace at least twice the integrity. If the perpetrator lacks harmful intent, but the victims still experience serious harm, then the perpetrator should score superior disgrace exceeding the integrity. All insane, moronic, jealous, idiotic or incompetent people should score integrity below 16 and inferior disgrace at least one third greater than the integrity. All dictators already score integrity below 16 using this preview. More than two thirds of all dictators, war criminals, mad people and psychopaths should score below 8 and at least a third should score below 4. All mad people and anti-social psychopaths should also score inferior disgrace at least twice the integrity and have insufficient benevolence for Jupiter, or score inferior disgrace greater than integrity and have an extremely malignant Mercury, Mars or Sun. They must also not have good or better idealness for Venus or Saturn. Atheists and all severely mentally retarded people should on average score integrity below 8 and have severely insufficient idealness for Mars or extremely insufficient idealness for the Sun and insufficient idealness for Mars. At least two thirds should also have clearly insufficient idealness for Saturn and none should have a very good or excellent Mercury. All xenophobes, hypocrites, and clueless people prejudiced against astrology should score integrity below 8 and inferior disgrace at least three times the integrity. All diabolical liars, chronic psychopaths with especially low IQs, arrogant and pathetic dictators, false prophets, genuine and thus utterly unscrupulous and severely delusional alcoholics, extremely volent aggressors, and all other completely shameless people should score integrity below 4. They should also score inferior disgrace at least four times the integrity. Fewer than 50 percent of the days of the last 7 cycles of Saturn should score integrity below 8. In the next preview the idealness values for most charts should increase very significantly. A small minority of the charts may see lower values. Most of these should feature undignified atmakarakas. An undignified AK can in the next preview greatly reduce the idealness for the Sun. If the AK is more than ten degrees ahead of the Sun and the Moon, these planets may see most of their influence lost. Mars and Mercury will also be greatly affected, but not quite as much, and the higher planets should see smaller reductions only (Saturn, the planet of strength, should see at most one seventh of its original influence lost).

Correct gender info will be entered for all charts before the next regular update. The two top scoring charts in the control group are for US supreme court justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. and the well-known Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. The chart for Thomas Mann scores slightly lower in this preview (category 7).

Violet (%): 0,14 0,00 --------------------- ----- Five+ (%): 5,45 2,87 For the most extreme sociopaths the integrity score should fall into the new Red or Dark Red categories and the inferiority score be at least five times the integrity score, or the integrity score fall into the Orange category and the inferiority score be at least six times the integrity score. The most notorious war criminals, scam artists, sociopaths, torturers, sadists, mass-murderers, and serial killers already easily satisfy this condition: Henry Kissinger (53,89 / 15,15 = 3,56) (1) Adolf Eichmann (38,36 / 6,10 = 6,29) Bernie Madoff (45,78 / 2,99 = 15,3) Tzipi Livni (82,71 / 2,33 = 35,5) Donald Ewen Cameron (74,33 / 0,74 = 100) (2) Timothy McVeigh (60,29 / 0,54 = 112) Bill Gates (91,18 / 0,64 = 142) Dominique Strauss-Kahn (74,15 / 0,52 = 143) (3) Anders Behring Breivik (68,09 / 0,39 = 175) (4) Harold Shipman (80,85 / 0,41 = 197) Marquis de Sade (50,78 / 0,24 = 212) Ted Bundy (87,26 / 0,39 = 224) 1) In this release, Kissinger's chart does not qualify but is included for reference only. His chart did qualify in some earlier previews and should do so again in a future preview. His chart features Kedara Yoga with combust ruler, AK enjoying exalted dignity in its sign - but its dispositor is combust, fully undignified Libra Moon. 2) Cameron was a Scottish pseudo-psychiatrist who tortured numerous patients. He is the founder of the World Psychiatric Association. He was also the president of the Canadian and American Psychiatric Associations in the 1950s. His chart features Kedara Yoga with combust ruler, combust AK, fully undignified Gemini Moon. 3) Strauss-Kahn fits the list as a former IMF head and a man with extremely unmanly behavior towards women. If he were born early in the day his integrity score would be even lower than the figure listed. The noon chart features Kedara Yoga with combust ruler, Saturn as AK fully undignified in Leo, the Moon enjoying some dignity in Aries, but with a combust dispositor. 4) Breivik is a Norwegian massmurderer described as "Islam-critical and Israel-friendly" according to Wikipedia. He killed 77 people in and near Oslo earlier this year. His chart features Kedara Yoga with combust ruler, combust AK, fully undignified Virgo Moon. Perhaps the worst thing about this update is that so many dictators score above average integrity for the control, but at least their average is well below control average, and all 13 charts score in Orange or lower categories. Many of the integrity scores can be expected to fall below average in the next preview. The following four charts score above average for the control: Hu Jintao's (15,24; 72,75; 7,68) Fidel Castro's (12,53; 29,21; 56,96) Mao Zedong's (11,73; 13,07; 73,46) Vladimir Lenin's (10,51; 7,10; 80,58) Two more charts score in the Orange category: Josef Stalin's (9,23; 7,73; 77,62) Pol Pot's (8,60; 60,98; 29,48) Three charts score in the Red: Francisco Franco's (4,93; 45,14; 48,72) Adolf Hitler's (4,39; 64,62; 28,26) Benito Mussolini's (4,11; 92,85; 1,25) The remaining four charts all score in the Dark Red: Kim Jong-il's (1,51; 33,36; 64,72) Omar al-Bashir's (1,45; 40,41; 58,07) Hosni Mubarak's (0,74; 39,96; 59,01) Ho Chi Minh's (0,46; 58,86; 40,59) * Settings: A buggy default setting affected the essential dignity of the lunar nodes in the signs of Aries and Libra. The correct default, which is Rahu exalted in Libra, has now been set. Some other essential dignity defaults have also changed: The Moon, when acting as itself (which it mostly does not), is no longer exalted in Taurus and Libra, but instead in Pisces and Sagittarius. It is assisted in Scorpio and Aries. Also Mercury is assisted in the same signs (only swapping primary and secondary signs compared with the previous preview). Finally, the primary and secondary domiciles of the lunar nodes have been swapped. * Text: Chart/Influence list: The dispositors are weighted a little differently in this preview. For idealness the weights are 1/7 through 7/7 in ascending order and for harmfulness the other way around. This means that all planets contribute something to both metrics and that the neutral planet Mercury contributes equally to both metrics with 4/7 and the benefic Jupiter contributes a little more (5/7) to idealness and a little less to harmfulness (3/7). * Graphics: Colorless mode has been fixed. All colors, without exception, are now colorless. * Text: Sign meanings have been updated. A few new keywords have been added, and six substitutions have been made. * Chart info files: Characters found beyond the internal limits of their respective character strings are no longer loaded. New in TP54 ----------- This is a minor update containing small adjustments of the automatic chart analysis. Since a relatively long time has passed since the last preview and this one increases statistical significance this is a fitting interim release until there is time to finish the bigger and better improvements still ahead. These include reworked Sankhya Yoga, planetary war, and also residence analysis. The latter is the backbone of any chart analysis and results in a planet retaining all, some or none of its innate influence. Such influence is always classified as dignified. Influence which is not retained is transferred to the planetary lord of the residence. In this and earlier previews a planet that is a guest at another planet's residence and having no essential dignity there loses all its influence. Currently the lord of the residence receives this influence classified as 100% disgraced. A planet enjoying some essential dignity always transfers some of its influence classifed as dignified and the remainder as disgraced. In the next preview the dignity of the dispositor will greatly affect how transferred influence is classified as dignified and disgraced. The result will be that some charts will see increased dignified influence and reduced disgraced influence. This means, for instance, that the there will be cases where the Sun in Aquarius will give Saturn dignified influence despite the Sun having no essential dignity in this sign. This can happen when the Sun's chain of dispositors carries essential dignity. Note that the SUN will still, just as in this preview, lose ALL of its influence. Preliminary testing shows that this change might increase statistical significance. It should also help raise the average integrity score, since there will be a way for a planet to effectively operate at a more dignified level than its residence would otherwise immediately suggest. The effect of a planet operating at a less dignified level than its essential dignity by sign is already in place in this preview, but will be reworked to favor final dispostors and especially those enjoying full essential dignity. This preview also has a new chart influence list with dispositor analysis. * ACA: The automatic chart analysis module has been improved. Cuspal range is reduced to 2,5 degrees. The effect of placement within cuspal range only applies to regular planets and not to points in space, such as the lunar nodes. A cusped planet rapidly gains strength as its distance to the cusp increases. The increase follows a simple sine curve. These two changes have effectively reduced the cuspal factor and have for the first time brought positive statistical significance to this factor as revealed by the "cusped" diagnostic below. In the test group each and everyone of the seven classical planets has its influence more cusped than in the control! The planetary strength reduction within cuspal range is a mere 5% at 2 degrees, 41% at 1 degree, almost 70% at 0,5 degrees and 100% at exactly 0 degrees. Minor dignities are now even more minor. The dignity levels are 1 (domicile/rulership), 5/6 (exaltation) and 7/12 (down from 4/6). The default minor dignities for Mars and Venus have been reversed. This deviates from the traditional exalted dignity of Mars in Capricorn. The exact dignity level used in the automatic chart analysis is 5/12. Venus now has minor dignity in Aquarius and Capricorn and Mars in Leo and Cancer. As a result Venus in Leo or Cancer contributes less integrity and more inferiority than before. The atmakaraka, the planet who has advanced the furthest in any sign, is still without effect in the automatic chart analysis. The Sun is considered the natural atmakaraka. It generally spells better fortune, more fun and a more powerful self. Saturn shows worse fortune, more service and a less powerful self. If the AK is weak, for instance through a lack of essential dignity, the whole chart is supposed to be weak. Also if the AK is any other planet than the Sun or the Moon then the Sun and the Moon will lose influence to this planet. When using the automatic chart analysis it is always important to check the strength and dignity of the individual planets and not only the overall scores. The strongest dispositor planet in the chart is always a good starting point for an astrological interpretation (see Chart/Influence list). For Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Ho Chi Minh, Hu Jintao and Omar al- Bashir it is the diabolic and dictatorial Sun. For Hosni Mubarak it is the grandiose and ruthless Mars. For Josef Stalin it is the reckless and self-applauding Jupiter spelling a huge superiority complex, and for Mao Zedong the unkind and invincible Saturn with an even greater sense of superiority. The changes in this release have improved statistical significance for the cusped diagnostic, inferior disgrace, and the integrity score. The ordering of individual charts has probably not changed much, but individual differences in integrity have of course seen a a lot of changes as is the case for the charts of actress Sandra Bullock and dictator Hu Jintao, where the chart for the more sympathetic actress now scores 12,89 (17,04) and the chart for the less sympathetic dictator 6,37 (9,07).

The same is true for all other charts representing astrologers and dictators. The two top scoring charts in the control group are for US supreme court justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. and the well-known Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. The chart for Thomas Mann scores slightly lower in this preview (67,58).

The most notorious war criminals, scam artists, sociopaths, sadists, mass-murderers, and serial killers already easily satisfy this condition: Henry Kissinger (10,06 & 58,90 => 5,85*) Adolf Eichmann (5,58 & 38,63 => 7,02) Bernard Madoff (2,01 & 29,01 => 14,5) Bill Gates (4,09 & 70,35 => 17,2) Marquis de Sade (1,80 & 52,07 => 28,9) Dominique Strauss-Kahn (1,76 & 70,66 => 41,6) Tzipi Livni (1,86 & 87,94 => 48,9) Timothy McVeigh (1,12 & 65,48 => 59,5) Harold Shipman (1,18 & 82,99 => 75,4) Ted Bundy (0,42 & 67,79 => 169) * In this release Kissinger's chart is just short of qualifying, but in a future ACA revision his chart might qualify depending on the strength or weakness of the atmakaraka. With this release only two dictators score above average for the control and most score in the Orange or lower categories. The top two charts belong to Mao Zedong (20,36; 5,29; 71,77) and Fidel Castro (10,22; 31,56; 57,13). All the remaining charts score below the average for the control. Four charts score in the Yellow category: Francisco Franco's (6,85; 44,34; 47,53), Hu Jintao's (6,37; 80,69; 11,19), Josef Stalin's (6,28; 9,18; 80,49) and Vladimir Lenin's (6,27; 5,94; 86,75). Two charts score in the Orange: Benito Mussolini's (4,36; 91,56; 2,35) and Adolf Hitler's (4,11; 61,47; 32,10). One chart scores in the Red: Pol Pot's (1,86; 76,27; 21,42). The remaining four charts all score in the Black: Hosni Mubarak's (0,72; 44,15; 54,83), Ho Chi Minh's (0,44; 67,32; 32,10), Omar al-Bashir's (0,41; 55,36; 44,19) and Kim Jong-il's (0,33; 33,22; 66,38). The control group includes a subgroup of 106 judges consisting of all the supreme court justices of the United States at the time of building the control. Its average integrity score is 11,07 with a category average of 3,89. 41,51% of the charts score in the Gray or higher categories. The test group has the following subgroups of at least 100 charts: 235 registered sex offenders (7,13; 49,06; 41,70), 244 past and present inmates on Alabama deathrow (7,51; 52,01; 38,26), 100 white female murderers (8,05; 48,54; 40,86), 105 assorted serial rapists and killers (7,21; 51,06; 39,72), and 189 people convicted of first degree murder (7,39; 50,32; 40,29). One subgroup scores well above average for the test group as a whole: The charts for 92 people in prison for fraud have an average integrity score of 9,02. This preview adds object influence aggregation as a final step in the chart analysis. It has no effect on any overall metrics, such as the chart integrity score, but simply gathers the influence of all the included objects under six ultimate dispositors. Since only the classical planets (rulers of the 12 signs of the zodiac) can act as dispositors no other objects can receive influence anyway. The system thus transfers any influence retained by other objects to these ultimate dispositor objects. In this scheme the Sun and the Moon together reveal the mentality and the brain as a physical organ. The Sun is to the Moon as Yang is to Yin, ie. the Sun represents both the brain as whole and more specifically the left- side, while the Moon specifically represents the right-side. Any influence carried by the Moon when acting as the dispositor for Cancer or retained when representing itself is transferred to the Sun. When the Moon represents another planet based on its aspect to the Sun its retained influence is transferred to the planet it represents. Upon completion of this step there is an even number of six ultimate dispositors, each responsible for two signs (one manly and one womanly). Following this release three planned major improvements remain to be implemented. Two will impact all charts: A redesign of the Sankhya Yoga analysis and a more dynamic residence analysis. The third will only affect a select group of charts. It targets planetary wars in the same sign as the Sun, which are not greatly or fully affected by combustion. In this and previous releases such wars are practically ignored as only the Sun is recorded as the winner. The charts affected by the necessarily much more complex code change are quite few. A short list includes the charts for the following people: Richard Nixon, Charles Manson, Adolf Hitler, Thomas Watt Hamilton and Theodore Kaczynski. In the case of Nixon's chart the change will have little effect in absolute terms as his chart already scores in the Red, while it may have great effect on the chart for the Una Bomber as the planetary war involves the sankhya yoga ruler and the chart's current score puts it in the upper Gray. If you come across any other charts which deviate from what you expect with regard to the integrity score please let me know. In particular I know of no charts for serial killers, war criminals, serial rapists or mass murderers which score in the Blue or higher categories using this preview. The category limits will change in the next preview. The new limits will reflect the dignity levels innate to the seven sankhya yogas plus the two new minor residence dignity levels. With these new limits it will be possible to attach certain astrological guarantees to the charts in each category based on the minimum sankhya yoga required to qualify in a particular category. The system will no longer be calibrated to yield an average integrity score of 10,00 for the C715 control group. The average is therefore expected to land higher, probably somewhere between 10 and 20. --------------------------------------------------- DISCLAIMER REGARDING ACCURACY FOR INDIVIDUAL CHARTS The initial purpose of the automatic chart analysis system has been to test the effectiveness of various astrological factors. For this reason some implementations may work well for statistical purposes, but may be too simplistic to yield accurate results for all individual charts. The war factor is an example of a simplified implementation, which, by simply assuming the brightest planet in a sign to be the winner, can seriously underestimate the effect of multi-party wars under some circumstances. Dispositor chaining is an example of another factor that can be implemented in different ways with sometimes very different outcomes for individual charts. Currently it uses a mix of weakest link, as well as the product of all links. Finally, different settings for the relative influences of the various objects may impact a few charts greatly. ------------------------------------------------------- ------------- USER ADVISORY This software-implemented chart analysis is not intended to replace human interpretation. It has been designed to be an objective aid and should only be a complement to a full analysis by a Priest or similarly qualified person. Astrological charts are too complex to ever be completely digested by any automatic system of analysis. In the case of this particular software it is still in its most early design stage and it will see signifcant changes - even in the very next release! The current implementation is also limited to so called essential indications (independent of location) and does not consider the just as important accidental indications, such as the Ascendant. In addition to integrity above average, a qualified Priest/Astrologer can have at least three possible supporting or enabling accidental indications: Aquarius rising sign (sidereal), Saturn or Uranus in the First house (tropical zodiac, sidereal houses), and finally also the ruler of the First house situated in the First house itself. ----------------------- * Text: Chart/Influence list: Object analysis has been replaced by dispositor analysis, which is a listing of the objects capable of receiving influence from other objects. Below the basic absolute numbers for total, dignified and disgraced influence, there are six new tables. On the first row you find "Balance", "Benevolence" and "Disgrace". Each value listed in these three tables is relative the ideal value for the planet, which is based on the initial influence set for the planet plus the influence of any other planets it lords over. On the second and last row you find "Dignity", "Idealness" and "Harmfulness". Dignity is dignified influence relative total influence. Idealness and harmfulness is the same as benevolence and disgrace for each planet, but expressed relative the planet's balance for balance values exceeding 100%. A planet's idealness and flawedness/harmfulness can thus never exceed 100%. The bottom line averages are weighted means. The planets' weights correspond with the dignity of the associated sankhya yoga for the idealness average and its opposite for the harmfulness average, thus the Sun can never contribute idealness and Saturn never harmfulness. Mercury and Jupiter both carry the same weight (0,5). To the right of the percentage scores you may find signs indicating especially noteworthy numbers. Stars indicate values that are close to the ideal, minus signs indicate insufficent influence, plus signs excessive influence, and exclamation marks potentially malignant influence. There can be 1 - 4 instances of each sign, with 1 indicating the lowest magnitude and 4 the highest. A list of possible general interpretations follows. * = promising ! = ominous ** = good !! = malignant *** = very good !!! = severely malignant **** = excellent !!!! = extremely malignant + = excessive - = lacking ++ = clearly excessive -- = clearly insufficient +++ = severely excessive --- = severely insufficient ++++ = extremely excessive ---- = extremely insufficient The specific interpretation depends on the planet. For the Sun stars indicate authenticity, material influence/dignity, beneficial publicity, faith, good fortune, productivity, dignified privacy, a well-functioning brain, etc. Exclamation marks can reveal childish and diabolic behavior, along with gullibility, selfishness, bad temper, crankiness, power-fixation, addiction, melancholy, greed and depression. When found under benevolence, plus signs can show too much of a good thing, such as too much publicity, too much power, too much fun or being too rich. Minus signs for the Sun should reveal deficiencies of the brain, which can make for less enjoyment in life, lack of bravery, or spell more severe issues, including mental disability, ALS or other neuro-degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease. A very short summary of possible interpretations for all the six dispositor planets follows. Roughly between a third and two thirds of the keywords in an applicable category should apply to any particular chart. Some keywords only apply to one of the two signs ruled by the planet and if that sign lacks any emphasis in the chart those keywords will miss the mark to some extent. A few of the keywords, usually listed last in the category, only apply to extreme cases. More keywords can be found in the program through Help/Meanings. For each sign the first seven or so keywords apply to the star category. The last keywords before the final comma apply to the malignant category.

Conversely, the last table on each row never shows any stars, as its values are never promising. Instead dots are used to indicate safe values. A single dot indicates a somewhat safe value, two dots a usually safe value, three dots a very safe value and four dots shows there is extremely little or exactly nothing to worry about with regard to that particular planet. A somewhat safe value is only safe if overall idealness is not clearly insufficient and the planet's planetary opposite has sufficient idealness. A somewhat safe overall value is only safe if overall idealness is not lacking. In case of extremely insufficient overall idealness only extremely safe values can be considered safe. You might have noticed the similarities between the first three planets, and also between the last three. This is no coincidence, but due to the first three planets being inferior and the last three superior. For one thing this means that people with severe disorders of inferiority, such as psychopaths, killers and alcoholics should as a rule have at least one exclamation mark next to one of the inferior planets and that people with disorders of superiority, such as crooks, fraudsters and perverts should at least have one exclamation mark next to one of the superior planets. More specifically for a rapist the mark should be next to Mercury and for a crook next to Jupiter. The condition is lessened only if overall idealness is clearly insufficient or overall harmfulness is ominious or worse. In this case it is enough that the specific harmfulness value is not marked as safe. To judge the potential presence of an ideal character trait you look for strength of the planet associated with the trait and lack of harmfulness associated with its opposite group of planets. For humility and thinking you would thus look for strength of Mars, shown by stars if it is promising or better, and for little or at least less malignancy associated with Venus, Jupiter and Saturn, shown by exclamation points if it is ominious or worse. For the presence of a harmful character trait you look for exclamation points first and stars in the opposite group next. As an example of the above procedure have a look at your favorite pseudo-psychiatrists (aka "doctors of deception") and you will find that they all lack the ideal traits of humility and thinking, and carry most or all of the harmful traits of deceit, craftiness, disregarding facts, fraud and being unbalanced. For a chart of a pseudo-psychiatrist to match this signature there would thus have to be more exclamation points next to Jupiter, Venus and Saturn than there are stars next to Mars. In practice I have found no example of any pseudo-psychiatrist with any stars next to Mars at all and they all have at least three exclamation points next to one of the superior planets. Another interesting observation comes from my dictators file where the inferiority/superiority distribution tends to follow ideological lines with fascists such as Mussolini having greater emphasis on inferiority and socialists such as Lenin stressing superiority. To reiterate, inferiority complexes are associated with the inferior planets and are thus indicated by exclamation points next to the Sun, Mars and Mercury (the material, young, and potentially childish, rich and greedy planets); superiority complexes are associated with the superior planets and are thus shown by exclamation points next to Jupiter, Venus and Saturn (the lofty, old, and potentially vitiated, poor and envious planets). I will round off with a basic signature for the common inferiority disorder known as depression. For all inferiority disorders, depression included, you first look for exclamation marks next to the inferior planets. For any major depression there must be severely malignant influence associated with at least one of the inferior planets. You must also look for a weak and severely insufficient Jupiter. Generally insufficient influence is indicated by minus signs in the balance table. A lack of ideal influence is shown in the idealness table. For a typical and very severe depression where a person experiences a general lack of purpose in life, the balance table must show severely insufficient influence associated with Jupiter. For extreme depressions with suicidal thoughts, Venus and Saturn must also show clearly insufficient influence in the idealness table. For less severe depressions it is enough that the inferior planets have some ominous influence and that Jupiter shows severely insufficient idealness. In most cases of diagnosed clinical depression at least one of the inferior planets carry severely malignant influence. For bipolar disorders there may be cases where the inferior planets show safe values. In such cases there should be extremely insufficient idealness associated with the Sun and Jupiter. Please note that exclamation marks only indicate potentials for certain actions and behavior. In no way is it implied that everyone with exclamation points next to Jupiter in their chart is a crook or that everyone with four exclamation points next to Mercury is a murderer or torturer. What these marks do indicate are character traits that are troubling to the person. In the case of Mercury there is an inferiority complex and in the case of Jupiter a superiority complex. In general, an inferiority complex causes a person to seek power over other people as compensation for his/her perceived lack of talent or competence. A superiority complex causes a person to shun power, as it is perceived as unnecessary, and thus the person becomes an easy victim of crime and abuse. Even with all these character traits known in advance it is not possible to predict where they will actually lead without knowing the person's experiences and circumstances in life. To some extent these can be predicted or revealed by an examination of accidental indications in the birth horoscope, starting with the Ascendant, but not even a complete analysis of the horoscope can account for all the exact details of person's life, his/her cultural background or level in society. In addition, not even a serial rapist goes around raping people all the time. Transitory influences must be examined to know how active a particular planet is at the present time. Only the sankhya yoga ruler and the atmakaraka are always fully active. Finally, as long as a planet has sufficient influence associated with it there can come some "good" out of it. A strong Mercury always promotes monetary gains and verbal skills; a strong Jupiter indicates language and academic skills as well as some ease and prosperity in life. Stars and exclamation marks can sometimes work to cancel each other out. The malignancy of a planet (shown by exclamation marks) can be reduced by the idealness of its planetary opposite. If the planet is the sankhya yoga ruler a single star can cancel the malignancy of a single exclamation mark. If the starred planet is an ordinary planet it can cancel the malignancy when it is active, unless the malignant planet is the sankhya yoga ruler or the atmakaraka. In the same way the promise of a planet (indicated by stars) can often be hindered by the harmfulness of its planetary opposite. In the this preview most charts show an excess of plus signs, minus signs, and exclamation marks. Although the limits used for deciding what category a value belongs to are unlikely to change, it is probable that future changes in the automatic chart analysis will reduce the underlying values and thus the number of signs and exclamation marks shown. More stars could also be expected to show up in the next preview, as the average integrity score will be allowed to rise above 10 for the C715 control group. * Text: The "Meanings" of a few signs have changed slightly, notably adding the keywords "rich" to Cancer and "poor" to Aquarius. Libra has lost the keywords "neurotic" to Gemini and "calm" to Leo. The latter change can be considered a textual bugfix, since Libra is perhaps one of the least calm signs and the most restless and unstable. New in TP50 ----------- The primary reason for this release is to provide a fix for a bug in the automatic chart analysis. The bug was semantic, in the sense that the code did what it was supposed to do, but still not exactly what was originally intended. The effect was that integrity for charts with undignified sign placements saw a boost that was proportionately greater than for those with dignified sign placements. Some other changes and additions have also been made, but nothing major. The bigger and better release is still ahead. * ACA: The automatic chart analysis module has been improved. Fixed a semantic bug in the substitution algorithm that increased dignified influence for less than fully dignified sign placements beyond the essential dignity of the planet in the sign. This had a proportionately greater effect on less dignified placements than for more dignified, thus changing the code to never go beyond the essential dignity limit has increased statistical significance. It also means that the integrity score should never be able to exceed the total chart influence minus debased influence. The atmakaraka, the planet who has advanced the furthest in any sign, is now presented next to the Sankhya Yoga for the current chart. You can also choose "Atmakarakas" from the "Stats" menu to see the atmakaraka distribution for the currently selected group of charts. Only the 7 classical planets can become atmakarakas in this release. The effect of cuspal placement has been decreased in general and also changed for the Sun, Venus, Mars and Saturn, so that the Sun and Mars are less cusped in so called infancy, ie placement very early in a sign, and Venus and Saturn are less cusped in old age, or very late in a sign. The exact implemention will change in the next release, but the general idea will be the same as this has shown positive statistical effect. The full range of this factor is still 15 degrees, but the practical effect is minute until a planet comes closer than about five degrees from a cusp. The effect of combustion and planetary wars should now vary more depending on the planets involved. In general the outcome can be more benign, unless the planets are completely antagonistic. In some cases a so called war or even combustion can improve the dignity of a planet. This can be the case if the losing planet is undignified in the sign it is in. Influence chaining (introduced in the previous release) matter less in this release, but still serves to give the charts that need it greater inferiority scores, such as that for serial rapist and probable serial killer Anthony Sowell. In the next release, which will incorporate the atmakaraka as an important factor, his chart may see an even greater inferiority score, it already exceeds 70. A bug in the influence chaining routine has also been fixed, very slightly improving statistical significance. The changes in this release has improved statistical significance for a lot of values including the integrity score, but also debasement (lack of essential dignity), polarization (secondary instead of primary dignity in sign), and cuspal placement in particular. For the first time there are now charts in the control group scoring in the highest category. The ordering of individual charts has also changed in many places, or their distance has increased as is the case for the charts of actress Sandra Bullock and dictator Hu Jintao, where the chart for the more sympathetic actress now scores 17,04 (up from 14,38) and the chart for the less sympathetic dictator only 9,07 (down from 9,59).

The most notorious war criminals, scam artists, sociopaths, sadists, mass-murderers, and serial killers already easily satisfy this condition: Henry Kissinger (9,55 & 56,25 => 5,89), Adolf Eichmann (5,23 & 47,61 => 9,10), Bernard Madoff (1,88 & 30,44 => 16,2), Bill Gates (4,09 & 70,35 => 17,2), Tzipi Livni (2,53 & 85,85 => 33,9), Marquis de Sade (1,39 & 52,80 => 38,0), Timothy McVeigh (1,69 & 75,20 => 44,5), Harold Shipman (1,46 & 90,33 => 61,9), Ted Bundy (0,87 & 72,03 => 82,8). In this release Kissinger does not qualify, but since his atmakaraka is Mars he will have no trouble fitting the bill in the next release. With this release only three dictators score above average for the control and most score in the Orange or lower. The top three charts belong to Mao Zedong (23,75; 5,27; 67,14), Fidel Castro (18,46; 26,56; 53,08) and Francisco Franco (10,57; 47,21; 40,32). All the remaining charts score below the average for the control. Three charts score in the Yellow category: Hu Jintao's (9,07; 81,77; 4,68), Benito Mussolini's (7,32; 88,07; 1,82), and Josef Stalin's (6,93; 32,47; 57,60). Two charts score in the Orange, Adolf Hitler's (4,76; 79,59; 12,81) and Vladimir Lenin's (3,53; 9,81; 85,51), and another two in the red, Pol Pot's (1,67; 86,47; 11,43) and Hosni Mubarak's (1,32; 53,42; 44,73). The remaining charts score in the Black: Omar al-Bashir's (0,60; 47,93; 51,41), Ho Chi Minh's (0,53; 78,98; 20,32) and Kim Jong-il's (0,23; 54,13; 45,47). The control group includes a subgroup of 106 judges consisting of all the supreme court justices of the United States at the time of building the control. Its average integrity score is 10,54 with a category average of 3,85. 35,85% of the charts score in the Gray or higher categories. The test group has the following subgroups of at least 100 charts: 235 registered sex offenders (7,08; 48,82; 41,07); 244 past and present inmates on Alabama deathrow (7,58; 51,76; 37,54); 100 white female murderers (8,53; 47,67; 39,98); 105 assorted serial rapists and killers (6,95; 50,65; 39,39); and 189 people convicted of first degree murder (7,57; 49,85; 39,46). One subgroup scores well above average for the test group as a whole: The charts for 92 people in prison for fraud have an average integrity score of 8,86. New in TP49 ----------- * ACA: The automatic chart analysis module has been improved. Fewer than half of the control charts show up in the first three categories. A goal for the pre-alpha will be to have more than half of the control charts score in Yellow or higher category, at least a third in Gray or higher, and fewer than one tenth in the Black. This release meets the first two goals and also manages to push down the number of control charts in the Black category from over 14% in TP39 to just under 11%. Fixing a bug inadvertently reducing dignified influence more than was intended for some charts with Pasa yoga or lower sankhya yogas has contributed to this reduction. Also other improvements to the sankhya yoga algorithm, as well as to most of the other factors have contributed greater statistical significance. The essential dignity of the Sun has increased in importance. If the Sun enjoys zero dignity then all the planets will be reduced to their minimum power (brightness), which will affect their dignity, strength and susceptibility to the chaining effect. For a fully dignified Sun this change has no effect. The retrogradation subfactor of essential dignity and strength in sign, which could boost these values for retrograde Jupiter and Saturn, no longer depends on velocity (direct/retrograde motion), but instead considers estimated brightness based on elongation. The brighter the outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune) the greater the boost to dignity and strength. Conversely, below average brightness can reduce the same values. Since the charts for criminals in the test group tend to have these planets darker than the charts for public figures in the control, this feature has good statistical effect. The range of the cuspal factor, or strength in sign, has been extended to its maximum 15 degrees (up from 12 degrees), while the overall effect has been toned down leaving less influence cusped than in TP39. The scorching factor, or combustion in general speak, now kicks in later than before, but also grows more quickly on approach towards the Sun. This change has meant a slight increase in scorched influence and a very clear increase in statistical significance. A new feature is called influence chaining, which is a recursive process which passes on received (primarily undignified, but also some dignified) influence in the same way innate influence is transferred through the regular substitution process. Only objects with some innate influence can retain received influence. This feature has mixed impact on statistical significance, but serves to give the charts that need it greater inferiority scores, such as that for serial rapist and probable serial killer Anthony Sowell. The outcome of the sankhya yoga algorithm is now more predictable from the Numbered diagnostic. A value below 50 predicts a possible increase in dignified influence. A value above 50 always results in decreased influence if possible. With this revision the sankhya yoga ruler has strength to retain some dignified influence. This has boosted the integrity score for Albert Einstein's chart from red to orange. Compared to the unofficial bug fix release (TP48) the increase in statistical significance is minute. Instead the major statistical change in this release is the increase of the number of charts scoring in the Gray and higher categories. The ordering of individual charts has also changed in many places. One example is the order reversal of the charts for actress Sandra Bullock and dictator Hu Jintao, where the chart for the more sympathetic actress now scores above average (14,38) and the chart for the less sympathetic dictator now scores below average (9,59).

Integrity < 1 => 1. Black Integrity < 3 => 2. Red Integrity < 6 => 3. Orange Integrity < 10 => 4. Yellow Integrity < 20 => 5. Gray Integrity < 33,3 => 6. Green Integrity < 50,0 => 7. Blue Integrity < 70,0 => 8. Indigo Integrity < 100,1 => 9. Violet This results in an easy to remember number series (1,2,3,4) for the ranges covered by the first four categories now representing integrity scores below average for the C715 public control group. The TP49 chart distribution by category, using the integrity limits listed above, is as follows: C715 T1080 1. Black (%): 10,63 11,20 2. Red (%): 15,52 22,87 3. Orange (%): 19,44 21,48 4.

Violet (%): 0,00 0,00 --------------------- ----- Five+ (%): 37,34 26,85 Obviously this categorization is very rough and there will be many individual differences that can be discerned by looking at the influence distribution over planets, as well as factors outside of astrology, including, but not limited to status of parents, country and cultural setting, etc. Astrology can predict a bad childhood, but the exact details will of course vary with the context. There are also additional astrological factors such as timing, which determine if a given potential can materialize or not. For extreme sociopaths the integrity score should fall into the Orange or a lower category and the inferiority score be at least five times as great as the integrity score, or alternatively the inferiority score be at least six times as great as the integrity score. The most notorious war criminals, scam artists, sociopaths, sadists, mass-murderers, and serial killers already easily satisfy this condition: Henry Kissinger (9,61 & 59,60 => 6,20), Adolf Eichmann (3,26 & 42,81 => 13,1), Marquis de Sade (2,01 & 29,97 => 14,9), Bernard Madoff (2,26 & 44,90 => 19,9), Tzipi Livni (3,60 & 72,02 => 20,0), Bill Gates (1,83 & 93,39 => 51,0), Harold Shipman (1,36 & 91,16 => 67,0), Timothy McVeigh (1,11 & 91,29 => 82,2), and Ted Bundy (0,72 & 96,37 => 134). With this release only three dictators score above average for the control and most score in the Red. The top three charts belong to Fidel Castro (31,0; 21,0; 44,9), Mao Zedong (23,6; 14,3; 58,1) and Francisco Franco (11,7; 41,8; 43,7). All the remaining charts score integrity below the average for the control. Two charts score in the Yellow category: Hu Jintao's (9,6; 76,2; 8,5) and Josef Stalin's (6,9; 25,1; 64,8). Four charts score in the Orange: Adolf Hitler's (4,9; 84,7; 7,5), Benito Mussolini's (4,8; 88,5; 4,7), Vladimir Lenin's (4,1; 20,9; 72,2) and Pol Pot's (3,8; 77,2; 17,8). The remaining charts score in the Red: Kim Jong-il's (1,7; 40,2; 56,6), Hosni Mubarak's (1,5; 29,7; 68,3), Ho Chi Minh's (1,1; 55,7; 60,2) and Omar al-Bashir's (1,0; 42,4; 56,4). The control group includes a subgroup of 106 judges consisting of all the supreme court justices of the United States at the time of building the control. Its average integrity score is 10,64 with a category average of 3,9. 39,62% of the charts score in the Gray or higher categories. The test group has the following subgroups of at least 100 charts: 235 registered sex offenders (7,3; 48,5; 40,4); 244 past and present inmates on Alabama deathrow (7,8; 51,6; 36,9); 100 white female murderers (8,5; 49,3; 37,6); 105 assorted serial rapists and killers (7,3; 50,7; 38,2); and 189 people convicted of first degree murder (7,8; 49,3; 39,2). One subgroup scores well above average for the test group as a whole: The charts for 92 people in prison for fraud have an average integrity score of 9,0.

Some primary and secondary essential dignities have been switched, see Help/Planets for a listing of all essential dignities. You can change these using the same command-line options as in the original Astrolog software. The Moon's programmatic influence has been increased again. The Moon was already in the previous release by far the most important object, but its weight is now even greater, improving statistical significance. Currently the Moon carries about four times the actual influence of the average planet (its own influence plus that of its accidental rulership based on its sign aspect with the Sun). Only the Moon has this programmatic influence increase. All the other objects carry the exact influences shown in the Object settings dialogs. The analysis module has been tested for effectiveness using the same test and control groups as used with the previous releases. The average integrity score for the criminal test group is now 79% of that of the average for the control group, which is down from about 86% in TP22. A new diagnostic has been added to independently track the effect of placement in primary and secondary dignity. A placement is recorded as Polarized when having secondary essential dignity. In theory this should indicate the womanly complement. Placement in primary dignity should indicate manly qualities. For sexuality Mercury should be the most important planet. For love and erotica it is Venus that rules. Libido is indicated by Mars. You get the picture. Initial testing using mostly untimed charts for 196 lesbians yields a Polarized average of 49,69. The corresponding figure produced using mostly untimed charts for 244 homosexual males is 52,38. The expanded analysis output for the control and test groups using program defaults (7 planets plus the lunar nodes) is as follows: C715 T1080 IH AH Influence: 64,25 63,59 84,21 62,67 -------------- ----- ----- ----- ----- Debased (%): 50,50 51,36 4,51 65,92 Polarized (%): 48,12 49,93 6,06 21,05 Cusped (%): 29,27 29,22 15,77 23,41 Opposed (%): 24,36 25,46 12,59 46,63 Scorched (%): 9,73 10,63 0,00 14,47 Chained (%): 79,73 80,54 14,87 82,49 Numbered (%): 74,80 77,16 7,72 77,55 -------------- ----- ----- ----- ----- Disgrace (%): 84,81 88,00 11,31 94,61 Inferior (%): 49,10 50,79 0,14 85,80 Superior (%): 35,71 37,20 11,17 8,81 -------------- ----- ----- ----- ----- Integrity: 10,00 7,90 74,69 3,38 -------------- ----- ----- ----- ----- Category: 3,66 3,30 9 3 You may notice that the Cusped diagnostic for the first time shows a slightly higher value for the control than for the test group. This can be explained by the Moon's greatly increased weight in this release and the fact that most of the charts in the test group are untimed. With the Moon disabled the corresponding figures are 29,10 for the control and 29,12 for the test group. It is my prediction that if only accurately timed charts are used the statistical significance will be a lot greater, especially with the Moon enabled. In this release the cusp range extends 12 degrees from each cusp. The inferiority score should reveal potential for antisocial behavior. Inferior disgrace can also show forth as childishness, incompetence and excessive humility. An inferiority score below ten in combination with a strong sidereal rising sign should rule out the possibility of severe antisocial behavior, including violent extremes such as all rape and torture, cruelty to animals, pseudo- psychiatry, as well as any state-sanctioned unlawful killing, such as capital punishments in some countries, killing of unborn children, euthanasia, genocide and suicide. The strong sidereal rising signs are Aquarius, Capricorn, Libra and Taurus. If the inferiority score is greater than the integrity score and either Jupiter, Venus or Saturn is very weak (registering very little influence) there can be intellectual, social or universal/spiritual retardation. In the case of a weak Saturn health problems and dyslexia can also be predicted. For extreme sociopaths the integrity score should fall into a Yellow or lower category and the inferiority score be at least five times as great as the integrity score. The most notorious war criminals, scam artists, sociopaths, sadists, mass-murderers, and serial killers already easily satisfy this condition: Tzipi Livni (6,7 & 42,4 => 6,3), Henry Kissinger (8,3 & 62,3 => 7,5), Bernard Madoff (4,1 & 82,7 => 20,2), Bill Gates (2,0 & 84,0 => 42,0), Timothy McVeigh (1,2 & 54,0 => 45), Marquis de Sade (1,0 & 45,6 => 45,6), Adolf Eichmann (0,9 & 41,4 => 46), Harold Shipman (0,9 & 86,7 => 96,3), and Ted Bundy (0,5 & 91,0 => 182). The superiority score should reveal potential hypersocial behavior, including infidelity and adultery (without antisocial intent), and a lack of respect for people in general. High superiority scores should also be indicative of repression and lack of authenticity, humility and bravery. People with a weak Sun and an emphasis on superiority are less likely to know themselves and are consequently also less likely to know the people around them. Charts with a superiority score exceeding 50% or at least twice as great as the integrity and with a margin greater than the inferiority score should reveal a genuine superiority complex. If the superiority score is greater than the integrity score and either the Sun, Mars or Mercury is very weak (registering very little influence) there can be mental, analytical or sensual retardation. In the case of a weak Mercury problems with concentration and memory can be predicted. With this revision, 4 of the 13 dictators included in the Astrolog for OS/2 Chart Collection score above average integrity for the control: Fidel Castro (31,1; 15,9; 49,5), Mao Zedong (27,8; 31,8; 35,0), Hu Jintao (15,2; 65,1; 12,9), and Francisco Franco (12,7; 41,7; 43,0). All the remaining charts score integrity below the average for the control, as well as below the average for the criminal test group, including those of Josef Stalin (7,7; 17,9; 69,9) and Pol Pot (7,4; 56,7; 32,9). The following charts all score integrity below category 4, i.e. more than half of the control charts score higher integrity: Adolf Hitler's (3,4; 85,8; 8,8), Vladimir Lenin's (2,7; 35,0; 60,0), Benito Mussolini's (1,8; 92,7; 4,8), Ho Chi Minh's (1,6; 37,5; 60,2), Kim Jong-il's (1,3; 36,9; 60,3), Hosni Mubarak's (0,8; 61,7; 37,2), Omar al-Bashir's (0,4; 32,2; 67,3). The control group includes a subgroup of 106 judges (all the supreme court justices of the United States at the time of building the control). Its average integrity score is 10,29 with a category average of 3,75. 42,45% of the charts score in a Gray or higher category. The test group includes the following subgroups of at least 100 charts: 235 registered sex offenders (7,6; 49,7; 38,7); 244 past and present inmates on Alabama deathrow (8,1; 51,0; 36,8); 100 white female murderers (8,4; 50,3; 36,6); 105 assorted serial rapists and killers (7,5; 48,6; 39,6); and 189 people convicted of first degree murder (7,7; 50,4; 37,9). One subgroup scores well above average for the test group as a whole: 92 people in prison for fraud (first and second degree) have an average integrity score of 9,0. The updated chart analysis module also produces a new category output, which for now simply divides the integrity range in nine different bands, with the fifth starting about halfway between the criminal test group average and the control group average, and ending exactly a ninth the distance towards full from the latter. The fourth category surrounds the criminal test group average. This category output makes it easier to track chart distribution and may in later releases also be augmented with constraints based on the inferiority and superiority scores. In the pre-alpha the user will be able to adjust these limits, but for this initial release they are fixed as follows: Integrity < 1 => 1. Black Integrity < 3 => 2. Red Integrity < 6 => 3. Orange Integrity < 9 => 4. Yellow Integrity < 20 => 5. Gray Integrity < 33,3 => 6. Green Integrity < 50,0 => 7. Blue Integrity < 66,7 => 8. Indigo Integrity < 100,1 => 9. Violet Slighty fewer than half of the control charts show up in the first three categories. A goal for the pre-alpha will be to have at least a third of control charts score in the Gray or higher categories, and fewer than one tenth in the Black. For a new control consisting of the 75 232 noon (UTC) charts spanning the seven last cycles of Saturn the share currently scoring in the Black is 15,4%. I hope to bring this down in the pre-alpha, so that fewer than one ninth register in the Black. The average integrity score is 9,01. The category distribution for the C715 and T1080 groups, using the integrity limits mentioned earlier, is as follows: Charts (n): 715 1080 --------------------- ----- 1. Black (%): 14,13 17,13 2. Red (%): 17,76 20,74 3. Orange (%): 16,64 20,28 4. Yellow (%): 12,17 11,76 5. Gray (%): 24,90 20,00 6. Green (%): 8,67 7,69 7. Blue (%): 4,90 1,76 8. Indigo (%): 0,84 0,65 9. Violet (%): 0,00 0,00 --------------------- ----- Five+ (%): 39,30 30,09 If you have any ideas for additional analysis factors to include or tests you would like to see done please contact me. All data used are available to the public via the Internet. I would appreciate if you let me know of any timed charts for serial killers that score in the Blue or higher categories, there should not be any! Note: Starting with this release you have to enable chart analysis on the new Analysis menu. You can also selectively disable one or more features of the ACA module, and turn on/off diagnostics. * Stats Function: You can have the software gather statistics for a group of charts by selecting Enable on the new Stats menu. The current chart will be added and all subsequently analyzed charts as well. The stats will only be reset when you select Reset on the Stats menu or use the First Chart or Last Chart commands on the File menu. * Chart Show: Akin to a picture slide show you can create a show of astrological charts by selecting Auto Repeat on the File menu. Start the show by pressing Ctrl+PgUp for the previous or Ctrl+PgDn for the next chart in sequence. Another chart will be loaded automatically at the set timer interval specified from the Animation menu. To pause you can press Ctrl+Pause. To resume use the same key combination again and restart. About Astrolog -------------- Astrolog is a classic when it comes to astrology software, not only is it 100 percent open source software, but it is also the most complete, and most flexible astrology calculation program ever made freely available. Thanks to the original author Walter D. Pullen, Astrolog is already available on multiple platforms, including DOS, Windows, Mac and Unix. Permission for this independent port and the name "Astrolog for OS/2" has been granted by the original author. Astrolog for OS/2 ----------------- This port of the original Astrolog software for 16-bit MS Windows to 32-bit IBM OS/2 compares to the Windows version (5.30) as follows. In the list below a minus sign precedes original functionality not ported. A plus sign indicates functionality not found in the original Windows version. An exclamation mark precedes functionality previously omitted. Functional changes: - Basic interpretations (report function to be implemented) - Arabic parts (unlikely to get implemented) - Biorythm (unlikely to get implemented) - Windows bitmap save (unlikely to get implemented) + OS/2 bitmap save. + Sidereal whole sign houses (aka Synchronized Houses). + Configurable default rising sign. NEW + Sankhya Yoga (Jyotish). NEW + Extended chart information including tags and rodden ratings. NEW + Extended dispositor screen NEW + House peaks (makes a difference for whole sign houses). + Long filenames (if supported by the filesystem). + Divisional charts modify houses. + Dwadasamsa division. + Remembers size and position of main window. + Automatic saving of all settings on exit. + Chart info caching (automatic resume). + Easy switching between four chart slots. + Chart slot swapping (to ease synastry work). + Chart ring rotation (primary chart slot always in the center) NEW + Localized time and date formats. NEW + In addition to local time and date formats also recognizes ISO, US and German dates as input in chart info dialog. NEW + Calendar can be specified for any date (suffix a date with a capital J for Julian or a capital G for Gregorian). NEW + Time zone automatically picked up if the environment variable TZ has been set in config.sys, to test select the "Now" push button in the chart dialog or press ctrl+z. + Clear and non-conflicting UTC-based time zone designations. No confusing daylight savings setting. + Also recognizes direction based time zone values such as 7W for 7 hours west and 2E for 2 hours east. NEW + Chart files can be easily associated with the executable. + Chart files in the current directory can be quickly opened in sequence (Next, Previous, First, Last). NEW + Copying of select text to the clipboard. + Adjustment of aspect lines to orb (instead of a fixed 2 degrees). + Aspect trimming, by sign and out of sign. + Sine function for power reduction following orb. ! Command line dialog (direct access to command line switches). NEW + Automatic chart analysis (ACA) advanced and accurate enough to be of practical use. The system aims to provide accurate ranking of planets as well as signs in a chart. The first stage of analysis, which boils down to an integrity score, is near completion. The second stage, which looks to accidental factors, will take less time to complete. Please provide feedback to help make ACA as accurate as possible. NEW Operational improvements: + Faster chart drawing. + Repaint instead of redraw whenever possible (disabled in this version for stability reasons). + Transit and other listings scrollable without recalculation. Functionality yet to be fully implemented: * Extended chart information: Multiple events per file. * Chart information dialog: More useful Atlas button (currently diabled). * Automatic Chart Analysis: Scores for individual planets, fortune score, plus more accurate integrity score. * Chart wheels: Easier to read planetary positions. * Many other features such as crude stats may be included in the final release. The following will probably have to wait until version 2.1: * Report function (user editable interpretation texts) * Major Yogas (jyotish) * Chart search Support OS/2 Software Development --------------------------------- Since this application has been ported and extended for free, your donations are welcome!

Where to get Astrolog for OS/2 ------------------------------ The latest stable port of Astrolog to OS/2 is archived at the public OS/2 shareware and free software archive Hobbes: http://hobbes.nmsu.edu In case you cannot reach Hobbes, or you want the latest info on Astrolog for OS/2 you may visit its home page (see top). The Astrolog Homepage (original software) ----------------------------------------- Ephemeris and general info about Astrolog as well as links to related sites can be found at the Astrolog homepage: http://www.astrolog.org/astrolog.htm Here you will also be able to find the original source code for Astrolog as well as binaries for MS Windows (16-bit). Ephemeris --------- Ephemeris files are not required but provide more accurate positions. The anonymous FTP site maintained by Astrodienst AG in Switzerland has all the Placalc ephemeris files available at the following url. ftp://ftp.astro.ch/pub/placalc/single_files The files are in groups with xx being a number indicating the time period covered. The three files LRZ5_24, CHI_24, and CPJV_24 cover the period 16 November 1858 through 31 August 2132. Copies of these files are already in the end user package.

Astrolog v. 1.2alpha6 (26/6/2007, Carl-Magnus Olsson) Readme/What's new
AAAAA SSSSS TTTTTTT RRRRRR OOOOO L OOOOO GGGGG A A S S T R R O O L O O G G A A S T R R O O L O O G AAAAAAA SSSSS T RRRRRR O O L O O G GGGG A A S T R R O O L O O G G A A S S T R R O O L O O G G A A SSSSS T R R OOOOO LLLLLLL OOOOO GGGGG F O R O S / 2 PRERELEASE NOTES: - The influence analysis system is in an interim state. It will be reasonably stable in the beta and in a working state in the final alpha. Eventually there will be a new influence control settings dialog, as well as influence displays per sign and house. - User settings as stored in the user profile will not be loaded in full by this and other prereleases. The reason is the many changes to the internal data structures. Updating from the beta to the final release should load all your settings. Revision 1.2 ALPHA 6c (2007-06-26) ---------------------------------- - Revised Sankhya Yoga algorithm to follow the simple count as closely as possible. Without outer planets enabled the integral part should now be identical to the simple count. Outer planets can sometimes raise or lower the integral part in borderline cases. - All 'Universal Time' time zone references now read UTC (the proper name). In chart info dialogs you can now also select two additional time zones from the drop-down list, UTC+12 and UTC-12, as well as enter UTC+11:30 with the expected result. - Synchronized Houses also adjust sidereal charts. - Fixed: Missing ephemeris file(s) no longer cause repeated popups and do not crash the program. - Navamsa Symmetric is now Experimental and called just that. - Default zodiac is yet again the tropical. Fix 1.2 ALPHA 6b (2007-04-24) ----------------------------- - Default planet weights are now the ones to be expected in Alpha 7. They will be showcased on the Sankhya Yoga page on CosmicLedger.com for those interested in verifying the numbers listed for the famous and infamous. - Graphics: Per user request default glyphs for Capricorn and Lilith are now European. You can change this under "Obscure Settings". In the process of making this change a bug was discovered and fixed so that the correct glyph for Lilith is actually available. - Aspect restrictions are now implemented in a similar way to planet restrictions. This makes all kinds of aspect restrictions work as expected (no mysterious orb values showing up after restricting an aspect type nor the inability to unrestrict, and other ugliness). - Fixed: Trying to step through chart files when no chart file was yet associated would crash the program. - The default Zodiac is now the Sidereal. Fix 1.2 ALPHA 6a (2007-03-26) ----------------------------- - Freezing or crashing Dispositor Graphs using unusual rulerships: Temporarily fixed by restoring classical rulerships. Signs are assigned following maximum distance from the Earth. As a result Mars and the Moon are now manly, Venus and the Sun womanly, and so on. You should be able to change these rulerships in the astrolog.cfg file if you so wish. - Enabling sidebar and adding a lot of extra points including uranians caused a floating point divide by zero exception for zero weight Poseidon. - Incomplete and incorrect default data initialization fixed. Default weight values revised yet again. - Sidereal zodiac offset as set with the -s switch or the dialog setting "Ayanamsa adjustment" no longer affects the tropical zodiac. Nor does it affect the Local Horizon chart. - Ascendant and MC are no longer modified by Synchronized Houses. Their tropical values are available as for other house systems so long as the tropical zodiac is in effect. - Aspect listing fixed to display aspects in real order of importance. You can modify the listing by changing the weights assigned to planets and aspect types, as well as using the orb controls in the Aspect Settings dialog. Setting both controls to 100% should exclude all aspects not by sign and include all others. Graphical charts, however, only consider orb and do not draw aspect lines for aspects of less than 1/15 strength (based on actual orb relative maximum orb allowed for the particular aspect). Version 1.2 ALPHA 6 (2007-01-05) -------------------------------- - Synchronized Houses This new house system combines the best of tropical and sidereal astrology. It also flips house numbering from counter- clockwise to clockwise for womanly rising signs, providing symmetric sign assignments with their manly counterparts. - Sankhya Yoga This metric is displayed in the sidebar of graphics charts. It recognizes the seven core planets plus Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Lilith. With only the seven core planets enabled this is the Jyotish value tuned according to planetary weights. - Plenty of minor changes and additions as well as a few fixes including: Scribble kept on repaint, easy stepping through of charts, aspect strengths emphasize peaks using sine squared, more sensible aspect listing. Version 1.2 ALPHA 3 (2004-05-17) -------------------------------- - Peaks available in synastry charts (makes these consistent with the other comparison charts). - Astrological help listings completed. Listing for signs and houses include rulers (as set by default or by the user). Listing for planets and points include secondary exaltation and debilitation columns. Aspect listing only lists enabled aspects. - Astrological 'Meanings' listing added. Text has been written from scratch. - World atlas menu command under help. It will open an URL object by default pointing to the AstroDienst website. The accelerator is CTRL-W. Minor changes or improvements: - Helpfile and other text files opened by the program use object open honoring any associations the user may have established for the files in question. - Text chart changes: Text can now be selected more freely both using the keyboard and the mouse. The default font has been changed to Courier. In the beta any changes to the default will be saved, but at present they are not! Most (if not all) text charts now start off with a short heading such as the one for chart listings. - Graphics: Retrograde and stationary points have lines slightly brighter than those in direct motion. Implementation change: - Text: Since no interest in mixed color charts has been expressed the MLE control has been reintroduced, but this time using subclassing to have the text scroll immediately as the user moves the slider. Fixes: - Aspect controls and heliocentric chart crashes fixed. Fix 1.2 ALPHA 2a (2004-04-05) ----------------------------- - A lot of fixes and small improvements including: Toggling of house peaks; Dual, triple and quadruple wheels; heliocentric charts; aspect list with separating and applying; glyphs (house numbers) displayed for peaks in comparison charts; when upgrading program defaults are available using the "defaults" dialog buttons. Version 1.2 ALPHA 2 (2004-02-13) -------------------------------- - House peaks calculated by the various house systems. Twelve 'peak' objects have been added (one for each house). For houses a planet at a house peak strongly influences the house it is in and also aspects all other houses making it infinitely more influential than another planet right on the cusp of two different houses. A planet on a peak is of direct concern to you. A planet on a cusp is in a state of neglect. Since house cusps are always drawn (both in the original and this version), they have been replaced by 'Peaks' in the restriction and house settings dialogs. For most western house systems the peaks coincide with the cusps, but for whole sign and jyotish houses they fall somewhere in between the cusps following the Ascendant. The peaks are drawn as dashed lines in the colors of the houses they belong to. The -YP switch replaces -YC (only conjunctions are accepted to peaks and all aspects ignored). - Added divisional chart menu. Navamsa is a new division in this update. In navamsa each sign is divided into ninths. It is used in Jyotish for assessing the strength of planets in general and for matters of the 9th house in particular. - Cusps available for all houses (independent of the directions, which are also always available). In the original program either the cusps or the four directions were available (as objects), but not both. Both directions and cusps are simultaneously available. As a result the -Yc switch (switching between cusps as angles or as actual cusps) has been removed. - The Moon's Nodes available at all times (as is Lilith). In the original program Lilith and the South Node shared the same object number. This is no longer the case. As a direct consequence the South Node is now also available with the Placalc option selected. - Setting 'orb by sign/house increase' semantically changed so that 100% means an orb increase by the whole sign/house instead of an orb increase relative to the basic orb. In short the 100% percent setting should always include all aspects by sign/house. In the alpha this is limited to interplanetary contacts and peak-planet conjunctions. - Influence calculations rearranged and revised. The next update will feature even more influence settings and a lot of tuning under the hood. - Graphics wheels now have a defined 'object zone'. Inside the object zone ring (dashed) only aspect lines are drawn and nothing else. The peak of the first house is always straight out from the center to the left. - The Placalc ('Use ephemeris') option is on by default. The Matrix routines otherwise used are OK only for the last century. For historic and future dates ephemeris should be used. Even then ancient positions for Uranus through Pluto should not be relied upon. - Trimming: Maximum orbs are calculated once and only once for any given chart. Mostly for reasons of program consistency, but it will not hurt performance either. Minor changes or additions: - Graphics sidebar: For sidereal geocentric charts the Ayanamsa is shown in the heading "Sidereal". Also, all non-house objects are listed, not just planets. Fixes: - Graphics drawing is now completely naturalized on OS/2. As a result lines should begin and end where you expect them to. The Gauquelin sectors are better aligned with their labels. Version 1.2 ALPHA ----------------- - Brand new influence calculation scheme advanced enough to actually be useful. The system is based on planets, signs, houses and aspects. For planets retrogradation is considered (in the beta also brightness for the sun and the moon). For signs and houses rulership and exaltation (soon also fall and debilitation). For houses focus (states of concern and neglect). For aspects natural, and unnatural harmonic and dynamic. For signs influences are redistributed following dispositor trees. - Orb considered by sign for two planetary objects and by house for combinations involvng a house object. - Fixed zero orbs from crashing. *** Version 1.01 *** - Extended input limits for name and location to 63 characters each. - Ctrl-Insert is now working (copies selected text or currently viewed bitmap to the clipboard). *** Version 1.00 *** - Printing of both text and graphics implemented. Be sure to reverse background when printing graphics on paper, and turn off color if using a monochrome printer. - Chart swapping (to make two-way synastry quicker). - Menu items for creating, opening and editing chart #2 directly. - Triple and quadruple wheels. - Fixes: Sporadic crashes due to buggy chart saving, crashes occuring while resizing window having graphical sidebar, and crashing after restriction of all objects. - The calendar graphics display is no longer upside-down. Known problems reported and to be addressed: - PostScript saving produces mirrored output in GhostView. *** Version 0.99 *** - Dynamic scrolling (tracking slider) in both graphics and text displays. - MLE control replaced by custom solution with keyboard scrolling. This solution may be somewhat faster and will also make it possible to display text in different colors. Please let me know if you are interested, since that will provide the motivation I need. - Changes allowing for planetary orbs (used in classical astrology). Defaults have been changed for planets and aspect settings. - DrawWheel: Fixed alignment of lines and arcs. XChartWheel and XChartWheelRelation: Aspect lines are dotted according to dynamic orb (instead of fixed aspect orbs). - ChartAspectRelation: Upgraded 16-bit legacy limit to INT_MAX, so that also the most important inter aspects are included... - GetAspInf: Orb power weighed and smoothed by a sine function (less than half orb means more power, more than half orb means less power, power changes very slowly at the extremes). *** Version 0.98 *** - Completely revised influence calculation for objects and aspects. All calculations are the same throughout the program. The graphics sidebar summary, text summary and text influence chart use the same basic calculations. Pretty much everything is controlled by user settings. - Aspect list fixed and improved. Now considers dynamic object influence as part of power calculation. Geometric mean has replaced the old arithmetic (a zero influence object will only produce zero influence aspects). - The element/mode/sign summaries now take aspect influence into account as well as object placement and planet personalization. A boosted ruler also boosts its sign or signs. These summaries are now almost identical to the text influence chart with sign influences enabled (see "Chart Setting Details"). The only major difference is that Ascendant and MC sign placements are included in the summaries if they are enabled under "Object Restrictions". The summaries are as earlier normalized around 100, so that values indicate percentage of average sign influence in the chart. - When using the sidereal zodiac Jyotish houses produces results identical to Whole houses. - Fixed: Globe graphics (no criss-crossing lines). - Default animation interval changed to 100 ms. The setting is now persistent between program runs, so if you want to change it back to 1000 ms or any other setting, no problem. - The chart collection that was previously distributed with the program is now available separately (See readme for more info) *** Version 0.97 *** - Extended customization: The aspects and calculation settings dialogs have been extended with user controls affecting things like what aspects are included based on orb and sign, and how different factors are weighed in the element mode summary. This update contains a few fixes and small enhancements. - The new house system introduced in version 0.96 now uses the properly calculated sidereal offset used for the sidereal zodiac. This ancient Indian style of equal houses can now be combined with the tropical zodiac to perhaps gain the best of the two worlds. A fix relevant to the OS/2 version found in Astrolog 5.40 has been incorporated: - Fixed -YJ bug: The -YJ switch which allows changing what signs each planet rules, wouldn't also update a reverse table which given a sign indicates which planet rules it. This would cause -YJ to have seemingly no effect on the sign list table, the influence chart, and the dispositor graph. A couple of small enhancements in Astrolog 5.40 for windows have been implemented: - Improved glyphs: Astrolog now has higher resolution graphic glyphs for sign symbols and house numbers. Before, some glyphs drawn at the default 200% or medium scale and up would look slightly blocky. Now, with a alternate "internal font" of double sized glyphs, the medium ones are smooth to the nearest pixel like the small glyphs are. The glyph for the Quintile aspect has also been improved. - Dialog extension: The sidereal zodiac degree adjustment field in the Calculation Settings dialog has been fitted with a dropdown making it possible to quickly select among several common systems of sidereal astrology. The values in it are 0:00 for Fagan Bradley, 0:53 (0 degrees 53') for N.C. Lahiri, 0:59 (0 degrees 59') for Krishnamurti, and 2:20 (or 2 degrees 20') for B.V. Raman. Additional change specific to the OS/2 version: - The Julian day number is now displayed in the info side bar for graphics charts. *** Version 0.96 *** - An additional house system called Jyotish Houses. In this system the first house always contains the Ascendant, but the Ascendant is not necessarily the starting point of the first house. - Dwad positions. - All dialogs are now fully converted to Warp 4 meaning reduced footprints and more aesthetic looks. - Defaults buttons in dialogs having them are now working. *** Version 0.95 *** - Displays, in the titlebar, the full file name associated with the currently selected buffer. - Saves changes to object and aspect settings automatically. - Refined chart summary. Boosts the ruler (coruler if no primary ruler has been assigned) of the Sun, Moon and rising signs. The boost is calculated from the weights assigned to these three indicators and is also dependent on the base weights assigned to the boosted bodies. - A few ugly bugs in the new buffer system have been fixed. - If a house system is undefined for a chart a warning will be displayed noting that the Equal House System will be used instead. *** Version 0.94 *** - Comparison charts - Easy switching between four chart buffers (in other words four charts can be opened simultaneously). Contents preserved between runs. - A few settings dialogs have been refreshed and a new one added for consistency. - Improved menu layout (including a new "comparison" pull-down menu) - More accelerators - Relocation using the world map has been fixed. *** Version 0.93 *** - Improved birth chart summary now taking house placement into account and normalizing values so that 100 indicates "normal" distribution. All values are relative to the internal average. In order to compare different birth charts the value in parenthesis must be multiplied with the grid value of interest. - Saves current chart info between runs. This includes current file name (if there is any). Also loads filename when opening a chart by double-clicking on it. *** Version 0.92 *** Significantly improved performance on repaint including scrolling. New functionality include: - Copying of select text to the clipboard. - OS/2 bitmap save (currently uncompressed!). - Standard OS/2 user profile (INI file) will eventually eliminate the need for a separate config file. - Preserving size and position of main window between runs. - Most menu and dialog settings should get automatically saved on exit (chart type, mode, calculation features, etc.). If you miss something let me know! Minor improvements and bug fixes include: - A couple of charts are no longer upside-down. - Caption (one-line text) in supported graphics charts. - Local time properly calculated (LT in drop-down list box). - Exaltation is considered in element/mode summary. Many minor fixes as well. Special note to Matrox users Unfortunately this version also reveals bugs in the Matrox graphics drivers leaving incomplete ellipses no matter how you twist and turn. *** Version 0.91 *** This update can be passed a chart file as a command-line argument, enabling direct opening of chart files if associated with the Astrolog executable. In addition original command line parsing should now work reasonably. New functionality include: - Scribble (simple drawing using the mouse). - Help file opened in the System Editor via F1. - Astrolog for OS/2 can be associated with chart files. Minor improvements and bug fixes include: - Time zone calculation working for western zones. - Complete command line argument parsing. - Improved appearance of the chart dialogs (WarpSans font). - Arrow keys can be used for scrolling. - Chart save uses the correct Astrolog time zone format. --
