I am researching movie star Errol Flynn. You state his birthday correctly as June 20, 1909, but you give two different birthplaces. The incorrect one is in Ireland. There is a birth time and a chart for that location. However, his correct birthplace was Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. There is no time or chart for this correct location, only Capricorn rising. Do you have a birth time for Hobart?

Hello, I love reading my horoscope daily but I'm a bit confused as to whether which day relates to me. I was born at 2:45pm, 24th March in Edinburgh, Scotland but I live in Adelaide, Australia. Could you please inform me how to adjust the time so that it relates in real time. Cheers.

Thank you for the best site of astrology in the universe!
I'm real heavy user at your site and very happy about it.... but :)

Why there is this silly text allmoste e-ve-ry day in daily horoskope: 'The partner references are set for a relationship with a man. Explanation' for gays and not for straights? I perfektly know whitch settings i have made afterall its enought difficoult to do wihle that alternative is not even in astro data base... the adding is mutch more harder.
I would be happy to see that you could see us equal with mixd couples )

Otherwise i'm so grateful about your huge work down there and whis u all the best and blessing at your lifes!

Yours

Alois adds: In fact, if there are partner references in the text, this note appears for everyone, whether homo- or heterosexual. In one case it says 'The partner references are set for a relationship with a man' and in the other 'The partner references are set for a relationship with a man'. It depends whether you have marked your birth data for homosexual preference or not, and you can modify this mark at any time. Just make your choice, and change it when ever you feel like it. The explanation how to do that is right there. Please try out the change, and see how the text is modified in accordance with your preference choice. There is no discrimination of any kind.

In English, even when there is a partner reference, if is often worded gender neutral and just says 'with your partner'. But if you switch to any other of the eight languages we currently support, you will find that the wording is gender dependent, because for example in German the word for a feamle partner is 'Partnerin' and for a male partner is 'Partner'. In most languages there are subtle gender dependent word endings, and we have made a big effort to get that right also for gays. In most languages the text would be very clumsy if we tried to express it completely gender-neutral.


Thank you for acknowledging the void of course moon. Would it be possible for you to list the exact times of its duration? Many thanks.

Alois adds: We do. In two ways, in the personal daily horoscope: Either you look forward to the next ingres of the Moon into a sign, which ends the void of course period. Or you move your mouse cursor over the link, and get the time indicated in a little help text which appears, magically.


OH! I LOVE the addition of mundane events to the daily horoscopes! You guys are really going above and beyond! (I was thrilled about the Love scopes addition a while back, too!)

As someone who sits down with Llewellen's calendars and your site every couple of months to HAND-transcribe the daily mundane events (all of them, including the moon and inconjuncts) AND my personal daily transits into my day planner, I'm grateful and excited to see you moving one step closer to a one-stop shop for me!

My Wish List for the Daily Scopes, just in case you should wonder:

--List the transits and aspects in the order in which they occur, according to time.
--A full mundane events/aspects listing, along with the option to view your personal transits interspersed with them, again according to time. Differentiate personals from mundane by font color, face, whatever
--Make all of this downloadable to my Palm Pilot, Pocket PC, regular PC, phone, etc...

And you'll have a subscriber for LIFE in me!

Many thanks again for the new addition!

I, forgot is the universal time on the daily set for DAYLIGHT SAVINGS. I have to ask, because there is only 1 hour of new moon before VC and I'm not going to chance an conjunct that offers a chance to quit an addiction and give up a vice to just go bye. Please tell me, I had hoped you have just posted a comment about this but i don't see it.

Alois adds: Universal time is the international time standard, independent of any location. All local times are defined as a offset against Universal time. Of course, by definition and because it refers to no specific location, Universal time does not contain daykight saving time.

The easiest way to learn about your local time offset against universal time is by creating a 'chart of the moment'.


Hello, I have found Liz Greene's Relationship Horoscope truly remarkable and very helpful.

Is it possible to create a Progressed relationship horoscope?
In other words, we have the two individuals' charts, which created the relationship horoscope, and then I also have the date on which the relationship started, and then I have today's date.

Thank You!

I love your site and check it daily. But I'm very unhappy about a recent change. Last night, my mother died. Tonight I tried to create what used to be called a Chart of the Moment for the minute of my her death, but discovered that chart option has been removed, apparently replaced by a Chart of NOW over which I have no control in entering data. Rather, the Chart of NOW automatically calculates a chart based on this moment, but I cannot enter data for another time. This is a great disappoinement. Please consider reinstating (or making easier to find) the Chart of the Moment.

Thank you.

Alois adds: I am sorry to hear about your mother.

There has been no change in our software. The easiest way to get a 'chart of the moment' is via the Atlas interface (accessible from the homepage).

For any chart, it is very easy to modify the data. Just use 'edit data for..' on top of the chart output page, or use My Astro -> edit links.


How about offering a special on a solar return reading on a persons birthday... say 50% off or something: )

I really like the content of the new Love Horoscopes, but the writing is just terrible. One of the things I have always liked about this website, and one of the reasons I have subscribed to it for years, is the quality of the writing. I'm an English professor. I'm picky. Since the Love Horoscopes appeared on the scene, I've been less than impressed by the writing, but my horoscope for today (where too appears instead of to) crosses the line from style-issues to full-on syntactic errors. You're going to need to hire an editor for the Love Horoscopes because,with every sentence-level error ,I (and I suspect people like me) become less and less impressed with the site as a whole. Thanks for addressing this issue.

May we use the About Horoscope page for a video on astrology for a film class? We will only use the symbols of planets and signs, and the chart of Madonna. We will say the images come from astro.com.

Hello. I read my daily for this Sat. It gave me an extended forecast. My question, it has Chiron Trine Venus, period, March 1 2007-Jan 2008. How is this possible? Venus changes every month. I have also seen this recently for my moon and Pluto, and it was for a two year period. Thanks for you info. Alisa

On April the 20th, 2007, there will be formed not only a grand sextile, but a Star of David from the trines. What grand scheme could go into place on that day? I just happened to do a chart for 11:21 MST on April 20th, and that is the configuration that came up. Check it out.

J'aimerais comprendre pourquoi ? Vous actionner -1 en 1948, car vraiment je m'arraches les cheveux, puisque certaine me donner Ascendant Lion, et d'autre Ascendant Cancer 26°45, j'aimerais avoir des détails sur votre calcul, en Asc Lion les uns à 3° et les autres directs 15° à 16° voir 7°,

Chauny 3W13 ok lati 49N37 pourquoi calculer plus ou -1 qui ne figure pas sur l'ensemble des données que j'ai

J'aimerais savoir, ce que vous en faites car de 1945 passant par 1948 aucune données,

et j'ai cherché, maintenant, si vous cherchez un peu plus pour moi celà serait TRES INTERESSANT

les uns me disent féminines et j'ai un côté masculin, les autres medisent ma Mais IV (pile en Balance) donc le Soleil au degré près c'est IMMENSE en Mais IV,

Bien d'accord, mais d'autre au degré minima le Soleil est en Mais V,

convenez que je suit très embêté car il est dit une qu'a l'époque pas de -1 plus 1 pas de 1948,

d'autre part tous -1 Ascendant Cancer,

etc...

Je m'adresse au Astrologue Pointu qui aime la recherche,

de plus, la France est bien régler sur NORD/EST et non NORD/OUEST

Pour tous, toutes, je trouve et pour moi, je ne me reconnais pas,

Si, des Astro calculs veulent se pencher sur Mon Thême, Merci,

De 1946 jusqu'à 1975 on n'avait pas le temps d'été en France.

Si vous etes née le 4 Nov 1948 a 22h, votre ascendant est comme calculé, 26° cancre. On ne peut pas discuter sur le 'facts'.

The transits should be read from where you are born ... The codes have been written for us at that point ... If you were born in London but live in Sydney then you should set your transit navigation for London ... I was born Papua but have lived in Bristol 11 years ... I always feel my day doesnt change till about 2.00pm ( winter time) ...

In regards to a recent post sent about the transiting nodal axis with its south node conjunct my natal Uranus and Pluto...as always, it is up to the astrologer to discern what has a greater causal effect in life dramas.

Transiting Mars entered my eighth house last week. Merely two days prior, my right knee suffered tremendous damage: medial meniscus, anterior crucial ligament and surrounding muscle injuries that require surgery, which I will undergo while Mars transits my eighth house. All this happened while the nodal axis hit my natal conjunction of Pluto and Uranus. And it happened at work, while transiting Pluto goes through my sixth house.

On the plus side, I believe that transiting Saturn through the second house has been quite beneficial in manifesting useful, high quality resources. During this transit I have built around me, albeit slowly, many tools of utility: a new computer, various pieces of furniture, drafting materials, etc. But again I believe it is up to the astrologer to use their intuition to discern what is working to manifest the various elements in one's holographic reality structure.

Hi Alois, further to the question I posed 12th December 06, regarding how to read my transits when transit times are exact
in London U.K. and there is currently an eleven hour difference between there and where I live in Sydney Oz.... Your reply suggested that I use the 'choose reference place'. .....I had already tried that , but the instructions say that that will make little or no difference. However, I took your advice , but have continued to be confused because often the transits are different......Take today as an example.. In the london timezone the Lunar eclipse is exact at 11.17pm with 3 daily transits, and in the Sydney timezone it is exact at 10.17am with no daily transits. Of course, I understand why there is an eleven hour difference, but, it is the same eclipse. Please Explain how to read these transits correctly. Regards Brian D. Madden.
P.S. I am a subcriber to your service, and am generally happy with this service, so this is not a criticism.........thanks again

Sydney, Australia --- Saturday, March 3, 2007 at 23:16 Universal Time

Alois adds: This is a tricky issue. Please see the FAQ, about Personal Horoscopes -> Transits - Selection of..

What makes up the 24 hours of a particular day is a different stretch of time in Australia, compared to the UK. Some event which falls on one date in Australia may be on the prvious date in UK. therefore, for a particular date the list of available transits for that date is different on the two places.

This leads our selection program, which has to find something interesting (and different) for each day of the year to different solutions what to select, because not the same list of choices is available on two places. In consequence, the whole balance of selections for a complete year may show differences (we always consider the wohle calendar year in the selection process for each day, because we want to provide sufficient variety over the course of the year).


thanks a thousand times for your advice today (transit: Mars Square Neptune), I had pretty much decided to just hand in my notice at work, I will now breathe deeply and gvie it a bit longer!

I was very surprised to read the interpretation of Neptune square Sun in transit. I found it to be unecessarily negative, alarming and lacking in wisdom and clarity. In doing a web search I found many people had read this and were quite upset by its content. This kind of interpretation is not well-considered and there are many other ways to interprety this possibly illuminating passage, depending entirely on the consciousness of the individual. Please be more careful. I am considering eliminating astrology entirely from my interests due to this kind of harmfulness. Thank you, Suzanne

Dear Alois, Astrodienst team

Congrats for your continued success, am really curious about the mentioned projects you're working on.

Notwithstanding, may I ask if it is at all in your plans to produce a PDA suitable stripped down version of astro.com, at least the Extended Chart Selection section?

I'm saying this 'cos, although I bear in mind you have your hands full, this might not be so difficult or lenghty to do and it can be extremelly helpful to those of us who are out there and want to look at some precisely drawn charts while away from our desks and broadband connections.

I'm looking into buying some Windows Mobile 5 astro software but I'm already hopeless that any option will ever produce charts as readable as yours - yours are superb! However, in a small screen the GIFs from extended chart selection page appear distorted thus very difficult to view and there's too many dispensable and costly Kb downloaded. My trick has been to go into astro.click.portrait/partner but still lots of charts are left out and again it's rather costly due to unnecessary graphics that only make sense in a desktop environment.

Congratulations for all the esteem you're earning from around the world and many thanks for the attention drawn to this question!
