Omnicycles Astrology

Omnicycles Astrology Software

Omnicycles offers astrologers features that can be found in no other software and now,
it's totally free! At the moment, we are working on adding other (truly stupendous!)
options, at which time you can decide to purchase that new version for a price that is
more than reasonable. Yet even if you don't want the new features, the present version
will continue to be free, and will not expire.

Omnicycles has been designed for ease of use. It not only displays the many details of a "normal" Natal Chart, but also presents it in other coordinate systems. For example: Have you ever viewed and studied your chart using coordinates in Right Ascension (instead of the usual "ecliptic" positions? I can tell you from experience that Right Ascension coordinates are indeed "valid" - and they actually do add to chart interpretation.

The same goes for our novel "Zenith Chart", which presents a sort of "3-D" view of your chart that shows exactly where the planets were placed in relation to your place of birth. After all, it is your chart, so the place you were when you were born is of tremendous importance. The Zenith Chart shows not only aspects between the planets, but also, between the planets and YOU.

As a matter of fact, I find the Zenith chart to be so essential for astrology, that I wrote a book about it it. Check it out at

Our "Omnicycles/Google Earth" feature is the best tool available today for learning the "mechanics" of the natal chart by viewing it projected onto the sphere of the Earth.

And now, let's have a look at what Omnicycles has to offer...

1) Natal Chart calculations in various coordinate systems: Ecliptic Longitude and Latitude; Right Ascension, Declination; Prime Vertical; Horizon; Mundane Ecliptic, R.A., Prime Vertical, Horizon; Heliocentric. In addition, you can view any chart as a "Zenith Chart", a new technique that shows the planets as seen from your place of birth. Have a look at sample charts for the different coordinate systems HERE .

2) Chart of the Moment: With one click, you can view the planetary positions of the moment, in the coordinate system of your choice.

3) Small bar graphs showing the distribution of the chart factors in the Elements

(Fire, Earth, Air, Water) and the Modalities (Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable). This feature may be turned off.

4) Atlas of Geographical Positions and Time Changes. You may add other locations to
the Atlas if you wish to do so.

5) Aspects in "True Body" format. Instead of the normal Ecliptic aspects, you may view
the aspects based on the true geographical locations of the points on the globe over
which each planet is located. In other words, this option lets you view the aspects
taking Ecliptic Latitude into account.

6) See the true distance between the Midheaven or Lower Heaven of a chart, and your Place of Birth. I find this feature to be extremely important (although, to my knowledge,
no other program offers it). In practice, there is a great difference (for example) between
an M.C. that is 45° from your Zenith (Place of Birth), or 40°. In the first case, a planet
at the M.C. would be in semi-square to your Zenith; in the second case, it would be in novile (a harmonious aspect). With Omnicycles, you can always view the exact
distance between the M.C. (or cusp 10, should you be using Equal Houses) and the
Place of Birth.

7) "Change Time" menu. Upon selecting
this option, a small screen appears that enables you to move a chart through time.
Just insert a time interval, click either the "forward" or "backward" arrow, and the date/time of the chart will jump to the new
time. Alternatively, you can enter a specific date/time, and view the corresponding chart. This is a very useful feature I myself use practically every day

8) "Independent Chart" feature. I love this one! Imagine you have one chart on the main screen, then wish to view a second chart. You can make this first chart "independent":
it will appear on a slightly smaller screen which will stay open till you close it. Then, you can select a second chart, make that one independent, and so on. Thus you can have several charts on the screen at the same time, and they may be mimimized/ maximized
for your viewing convenience.

9) Positions Sreeen. This option gives additional positional informatioin for the chart
on the screen. Like the "Independent Chart", these screens will remain open till you
close them. Thus, you can easily compare two charts, and their positions at well.

10) House Systems. A generous variety of house systems to choose from: Equal,
Placidus, Koch, Regiomontanus, Campanus, Alcabitius, Topocentric, Porphyry, Solar,
and many more.

11) Change colors. I prefer a dark background, with the chart circle in white. However,
if you prefer, you can select the background color, and the colors for each individual
planet as well.

12) Show meanings of glyphs. If you activate this option and hover over a symbol
(planet, sign or house), a small screen containing a short explanatory text will appear.

13) You can activate help screens that will guide you through the process of doing your
first charts or graphs.

14) Aspectarium. Select this option, and a large aspect grid will appear, which shows
the aspects between planets based on the aspect file you have selected at the time
(and which will show the aspect lines between planets on the Main Chart graph). This aspectarium allows you to modify the orbs by a percentage. For instance, if you enter "50%", all the orbs will be reduced by half. Choose "Synastry", then select a second
chart, and you will see the aspects between the Main Chart and the second chart that
you have just selected. Or, you can select the current chart, and see the aspects
between the Main Chart (yours, for instance) and the current planetary positions.

15) Aspect lines in the chart. Omnicycles gives you a large variety of aspect files to

choose from, so that you can view the aspect connections between factors in the Main Chart on screen at the
moment. What's more: you
can easily move from one
aspect file to another by
clicking an arrow button on
your keyboard. That way, you can quickly compare aspect groups: "Traditional", "Tense", "Harmonics", "Harmonious",
and many more.

16) Lists of Primary Directions: choose from among four common types (Placidus or Regiomontanus, each one with or without Latitude); a list will then be generated that
begins with the birth year, and ends 100 years later.

17) List of 1° per year directions. Similar to the "Primary" lists, this one also gives the aspects formed over a 100-year time period.

18) Harmonic Charts: This feature is fantastic for those who wish to study their
"Harmonic" charts. Simply select the option, enter a Harmonic number, and click "OK":
the on-screen chart will now be the one for the Harmonic chosen.

19) Research (for the advanced astrologer): The "Research" option is for astrologers
who wish to test the reliability of an aspect file by applying it to a list of dates of real
events in their lives, or in the lives of others. You will not be able to use it unless you
learn about how it works: read the section in the Glossary entitled "Research", and especially the chapter in the manual "Test the aspect files with the built-in research module."

20) Save chart in jpg format. Perfect for those who wish to convert a chart into an
image file (.jpg). Simply select this option, and the chart on the main screen will be converted into a .jpg.

21) Print Chart: Can be used to send the chart to a printer, or to a program that then
turns it into a PDF file. That's the way I do it, using the free "Bullzip" printer program.
After all, why waste paper? (Now excuse me for a moment while I go hug a tree...)

22) File Manager: our newest addition to Omnicycles. In time, your main chart file will contain a large number of charts, and you will no doubt wish to organize them. This module allows you to:

a) Copy charts from one file to another, so that the charts copied are present in both files;
b) Move charts from one file to another;
c) Erase charts selected in a file, or mark certain charts, and erase all the rest;
d) Put charts in order, either alphabetical, or according to the dates of the charts;
e) Generate a text file that contains a list of all the charts in a file;
f) To keep your charts safe, Omnicycles always creates a backup file whenever you begin to manage your chart files. It puts these backups into a separate folder for safe-keeping. Thus, if you make a mistake and erase charts by mistake, you can always revert to the orginal file.

        All of the above features are fully available in Omnicycles right
        now, and you are free to use them forever withut paying a cent!
