I have Lilith shown in a chart?
Yes, you can. Please, choose the chart type "Natal Chart
Wheel", and the style "Astrodienst w. Asteroids". The resulting
chart shows Chiron, Lilith (the Dark Moon), and the major
asteroids (Ceres, Eros, Juno, Nessus, Pallas, Pholus and
Vesta). Lilith is the mean lunar apogee, unless something else is stated explicitly.
There are additional data on Lilith in the "additional data
sheet". For interpretational information on Lilith, you
may want to read the article on the Dark
Moon in our "Understanding Astrology" section.
can I enter more than one asteroid?
To select the asteroids you wish to include in your chart,
find the numbers on the asteroid
name/number list with over 10000 named asteroids at the bottom
of the Extended Chart Selection page.
You then enter the asteroid numbers in the asteroid field,
separating the numbers with commas, e.g. "34, 6, 49".
you give information on declinations in the chart?
The declinations are given in the "additional data tables"
(Please, click on the link Click to
get the additional tables above the chart).
You can also find them visualised in the 3-dimensional chart
drawing in the group Astrodienst special
-> 3-dimensional chart.
- Is it possible
to get a chart with true BML (Black Moon Lilith)?
Yes, you can show true Lilith by entering "h13" in the asteroid field
at the bottom of the Extended Horoscope Selection page.
The so-called "true Lilith" appears in the chart drawing with the
abbreviation "osc.", and in the aspect table below as "osc. Apogee".
How can I show hypothetical planets in a chart?
At the bottom of the "Extended Horoscope Selection" page, you can find
a link called List of "hypothetical" planets
which opens a window with this list. Now, choose the numbers of the
factors you would like to show in the chart and enter them in the
asteroid and hypothetical planet field at the bottom of the
Extended Horoscope page. In order to add more than one factor,
please separate the numbers by commas.
You can now click to view the chart, and the selected factors will be
shown. (Please note, that only up to ten extra factors can be shown in
How can I show the Pars Substanciae (Point of Substance) in the chart?
You can show the Pars Substanciae by first showing the chart you would
like to see. When the chart is shown, please enter the following at
the end of the URL at the top of your browser:
The chart will be re-calculated, showing the Pars Substanciae.
You can also calculate the part yourself by using the following formula:
For a value over 360°, please subtract 360°.
- First, calculate the distance between Sun and Ascendant (d),
in order to find out whether you are dealing with a day or night
birth. Should this result in a negative value, please add 360°.
- Night birth (d < 180°):
Pars Substanciae = Ascendant + Saturn - Mars
- Day birth (d > 180°):
Pars Substanciae = Ascendant + Mars - Saturn
There is an interesting article by Robert Hand which deals with
the so-called sensitive (or Arabian) points:
The Lot or
Part of Fortune.
The Pars Substanciae appears as the "Lot of Accusation". This is all the
information we have got on this point at the moment.
Why is the South Node not displayed in the charts?
It is unnecessary because the South Node is always 180° opposite the North
Node (which is given). Adding the South Node would clutter the chart drawing
