All astronomical calculations are based upon universal time. Elements of this window will tell the software how to determine universal time from the Date and time.
time legal universel local unknow Legal time:
This option is selected by default and allows you to automatically calculate universal time for the indicated country or time zone.
Legal Time is the official real time and date used by each country according to their time zone and decrees (daylight saving time).
As for the dates prior to the establishment of the real time (according to each country), the calculation in real time is identical to the Local Time (look below).
This setting will directly influence the calculation of the chart and ascendant. The majority of the calculations errors in the chart is due to the unfamiliarity of the real, local and universal times. Read the article written by Daniel Vega to get more familiar with these notions.
Even if we make sure we are very careful how precise our time zone data are (as well as the geographic atlas), you need to be aware that real time corrections can't cover the whole calendar nor each and every locations.
In general, the time adjustment calculated by AstroQuick is based upon the capital (with the country time zone and eventual daylight saving time). However, it can't deal with the many exceptions where rules vary according to local specificities or political events. We are mostly talking about the USA in the 20th century and France during the 1939-40 period with the occupied areas (except large cities).
AstroQuick will cover about 99,9% of the cases though, as for the 0,1% remaining, especially for cities that are not mentioned in the atlas, it is on you to search what you need to find the hardest cases by consulting the specialized websites or books.
If the correction of AstroQuick is different, since it is impossible to change the result, you will consequently have to determine the universal time type the Date and time GMT by selecting "Universal" in the menu "Time".
Universal time:
Select this option if you aren't making any correction to the Date and time given in universal time.
Local time:
The local time, or solar time, is used for countries with no real time. For example, as for births in France, before the 19th century.
The local time is function of the longitude of the location. By selecting this option, AstroQuick will determine the Universal time according to the longitude (and the time).
Unknown time:
This particular option will allow you to maintain the time given (GMT).
Which means that the time typed is not taken into account. Only the date is considered for 12h TU.
As for the birth data when the time is not given, use this option, it will give you a better average of the lunar position.
