Improvements We Have Made to Planetary Calendars: When
we took over the authorship of the calendar we moved from
the manual calculations used by the previous astrologers to
computer-calculated figures. This allows us to compensate
for global curve and resulting variations in latitude, as
well as minor longitudinal variations, all through the use
of complex logarithms. In that way we are able to produce
very exact times.We
have also added the retrograde and direct motions in the individual
day blocks since this is especially helpful information.
preparation for taking over the authorship of the calendar
we thoroughly investigated the original forecasting model.
While we have stayed with the original concept, we have incorporated
interpretation material that includes the influence of the
powerful Fixed Stars, the Essential Dignities and Receptions,
as well as some advanced interpretational techniques that
have been confirmed as important by modern statistical analysis.
This gives the analysis of the calculations added depth and
effectiveness that is in line with the methods currently used
in world-class astrology.
way that the calendar is unique is that we prepare it as a
couple, allowing us to consult and double check our work.
We input the data and interpretations directly into the electronic
Quark™ documents, working from the astrological calculations
from the program Solar Fire™. This eliminates mistakes made
in transcription from the hardcopy into typesetting, a common
problem when handling astrological data.
have used this calendar for many years and we have endeavored
not to change its style, while at the same time improving
its performance as a forecasting tool. More than thirty years
as professional astrologers has given us an idea of what we
would like to see in an astrological calendar and that is
an aspect of our efforts here.
