presentation and functions
windows for lists of transits and directions
These windows display the dates and aspects of planetary progressions in the birth chart.
The title of the window uses the name of the birth chart that we already used for the calculations.
Results are displayed over 3 successive columns in order to optimize the display and printing area. When the list is filtered (cf. menu) columns have different lengths, the sequence stays the same (the 3rd column follows the second and the second follows the 1st).
not available in the ECO version.

Transits are calculated for every positions in the birth chart, except the birth positions of the asteroids Palas, Juno and Vesta.

Whereas some transits are displayed according to their period, if applicable, dates for directions (secondary, symbolic and solar arc) are all displayed (progressions of all the planets with all their major and minor aspects).
4 ) Ranking and sorting out of the lists
7 tabs allow you to change the display of transits and directions lists.
5 ) Nomenclature
Each period of transit or direction is presented like this :
astrological planetary transit details
Date (format mm.dd.yyyy)
Planet transiting
Element of the birth chart (planet, house, point)
Date of beginning of the transit with a -2° orb (-1° minor aspect), format mm.dd(.yyyy).
Date of end of the transit with a +2° orb (+1° minor aspect), format mm.dd(.yyyy).
As for the transits of the Moon, these dates are replaced by the time at the beginning and the end of the transit.

As for the ranking according to its longitude, the presentation is different:
planetary transit astrology period
Transiting planet
Sign (degree of the sign)

Date (format mm.dd.yyyy)
Date of the beginning of the transit and

    Planetary cycles are highlighted in medium gray (transits of a planet facing her natal position).
    Resonant transits are highlighted in dark gray. These transits correspond to the repetition, in transit, of an aspect already present in the natal chart (all aspects between the same two planets into natal and transit).

    6 ) Menu (settings and functions)
    You can find the options to display lists and interpretations in this menu. To display it, run the mouse pointer over "menu" or type on it if you are using a tablet (iPhone, iPad, Android etc.).
    planetary transits calculation menu preferences and options
    The options for the display of aspects allow you to filter the dates (results of calculations of transits and/or directions). the grey button means that corresponding transits and directions are hidden in the list.
    Click on a planet to hide its transits in the list.
    Transits of the grey planets are hidden, others will pop up (if applicable) (cf. "time periods" with the preselection of the transiting planets).
    Example : if you only want to display the transits of Pluto, select (grey) all the transiting planets except Pluto.
    Click on an element of the birth chart to hide the transits of this element in the list.
    The transits to shaded elements are hidden, others will pop up (if applicable) (cf. "time periods" and settings for the calculation and display of the birth chart).
    Example : to hide the transits and directions of the birth positions of the houses, the part of fortune and the asteroids, shade the buttons on the first line.
    To follow a specific planetary cycle, you are able to only display the planets you want to check. For example, if you want to follow the transits of Pluto, shade all the transiting planets except Pluto. To follow the transits of the Sun, shade all the element of the birth chart except the Sun. By combining these two examples, you can keep up with the transits of Pluto on the birth Sun. Consequently, you can easily and quickly find the major deadlines.
    These display options are automatically saved for each time period (in the browser cookies).
    By default, all the results are displayed but if you have changed these options for special searches, you will have to display this menu (before you can rely on the list), in order to verify if all the transiting and transited planets of your usual search are well selected.
    Tutorial video: Use of the menu
    The boxes to check and the following radio button will help you set your calculations.
    This section allows you to select the progressions calculations (dates and aspects of the transits and directions) that will be displayed by default for this search period.
    When you change the settings, the window is automatically reloaded after a few seconds.
  • Transits : planetary transits
  • Transits converses : planetary transits before the birth date.
  • Directions:
  • Secondary : usual directions calculated at the rate of a day per year
  • Sec. converses : ...before the birth date.
  • Symbolic : directions calculated at the rate of a degree per year
  • Symb. converses : ...before the birth date.
  • Solar Arc : directions calculated at the rate of 24 hours of the Solar Arc (as angular distance) per year
  • S.A. converses : ...before the birth date.
  • To search for an event, you can select transits and directions.
    Converses calculations (before the birth date) have nothing to have with common forecasts techniques, these options are meant to be used by experienced users.
    NB: the list of transiting planets is defined by the "time period" and then by the display settings. The list of followed planets is defined by the elements of the birth chart (and then by the display settings).
    Select a zodiacal reference for the calculation of zodiacal longitudes.
    When you change the settings, the window is automatically reloaded after a few seconds.
  • Tropical: longitudes are calculated from the vernal point. This option corresponds to basic calculations in the occidental astrology that takes into account the zodiacal signs defined by the seasons.
  • Ayanamsa et SVP: Longitudes are reported on the sidereal zodiac, i.e the stars zodiac (or constellations). these options correspond to calculations in the oriental or sidereal astrology, according to references of the Ayanamsa or the SVP.

  • 3 col. comp. html / Balance out 3 col.: this option of presentation allows you to take advantage of the future CSS3 standards to display the lists over 3 columns of the same length.
    3 col. comp. html does not allow to balance the columns out (when the dates are filtered) but allows the printing in columns.
    Balance out 3 col. allows you to balance the columns out but does not allow you to print over 3 columns (right now in December 2011).
