Now you can keep carefully verified horoscopes of famous people in your computer for use at a moment's notice. Not just timed natal charts, but - unlike other collections - generous lists of dated, and sometimes timed, life events are included, which you can use to demonstrate predictive methods.
Each data collection contains pre-cast charts with Placidus houses, which you can immediately use with any software programs that read Solar Fire-type files. You can also add charts to these collections, making them the nucleus of your own chart database.
Arthur Blackwell and the Astrolabe staff have put in years of painstaking research, not only into biographies, but also (important for early charts) into the timekeeping conventions of other times and places. Including over 500 figures from history as well as classic celebrities of our own times, this unusual database gives you dazzling examples for lectures, writing and research.
Janice Mackey and Jessica Saunders have expanded their Contemporary Horoscopes collection to include over 600 20th-century achievers and newsmakers: Emmy and Oscar winners, star athletes, scientists, writers, musicians, politicians and more - all with timed charts taken straight from birth certificates. The lists of life-event dates are especially full.
Nicholas Campion, one of the world's foremost exponents of mundane astrology, now offers us his Book of World Horoscopes on disk. This epic collection of national horoscopes is based on fifteen years of research and contains 409 historically sourced charts in three different formats ready for use in Solar Fire, Solar Maps, Solar Spark, JigSaw, Nova system programs, CCRS '92 and Blue*Star.
Over 200 timed charts and hundreds of solar charts for sports figures in baseball, basketball, football, skating, golf, tennis, Olympics and NASCAR racing. Bios and sources included.
Hundreds of timed and untimed charts of basketball teams, players, staff and events in basketball history.
Over 1500 timed and untimed charts of football teams, players, staff and events in football history.
Besides the Stars: View more than 1,100 black holes, pulsars, quasars, x-ray sources and other nonstellar objects in relation to any natal chart. Presented in Solar Fire star-file format, this data collection enables you to see the positions of these mysterious objects in Solar Fire's Planetarium view, and to list their aspects or parans to a natal chart. Beginning with Solar Fire 5, you are also able to show selected nonstellar objects in tables on the same page as the chart wheel, and even place them around the chart wheel itself. In Solar Maps, you will be able to see any of them in relation to any point on Earth at any given moment.
This compilation by Philip Sedgwick is the result of over two decades of work and includes experimental delineations of possible meanings for all of the black holes, and the accompanying booklet contains suggestions for interpreting the other classes of deep-space objects.

With the Astrolabe Font, all it takes is a few keystrokes to put astrological characters into your articles, books, brochures and charts. Each font includes glyphs in any point size you want, and it gives you all the standard astrological symbols for planets, signs, aspects, moon phases and more. Each of our fonts also has additional characters of its own. These fonts work just like any other standard alphabetic or symbol font you have on your computer. You get two versions: TrueType and PostScript.
Now you can easily put astrological characters into your word processing and desktop publishing documents. Use these glyphs in text, tables, and even as additions to charts you have exported or cut and pasted from an astrological program. Or use them to make striking borders, diagrams, ads, business stationary or artwork with a distinctive astrological look.
Astrolabe Font contains the most symbols and is the most economical with space. It is an elegant medium-weight font with spacing that makes it look especially good in text.
Character Set: Besides the usual glyphs, it includes European and ancient variants for Capricorn, the Sun, Mars, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, plus a glyph for Lilith and a comet symbol. There are also old glyphs for fire, earth, air and water, and cardinal, fixed and mutable.
To keep font changes to a minimum, this font also includes characters for the Ascendant, MC, East Point and Vertex, a complete set of numbers, both regular and as subscripts, letter subscripts for "natal," "progressed," etc., and the slash, plus, minus, equals and bracket signs used by Uranian astrologers and Cosmobiologists.
Other handy characters include 14 styles of stars; up, down and sideways arrows; a check mark; an angle symbol; and copyright and trademark symbols. And for fun, there are symbols for peace, yin/yang, "north," "don't," a horoscope wheel, infinity, and even a UFO.
Keyboard Layout:All the standard sign, planet and aspect glyphs are easily accessible from your computer's main keyboard. They are laid out across the keyboard in the usual sign and planetary order, which makes their locations easy to remember. The less-used symbols are accessible using the ALT key with the numeric keypad.
Marvel and be inspired by the infinite patterns of the Universe. Explore intricate cosmic design on your own computer. See the patterns formed by planetary orbits from your location on Earth, or imagine and then see what they might look like if your vantage point was the Sun or Neptune or Pluto or Venus or Hades or Juno or Eris... over 10,000 combinations of three are possible.
Print your designs to file. Express yourself with mandalas: Use them on your desktop or create and print them for your stationery, business card or to frame on your wall.
Each mandala is formed by a sequence of lines drawn between positions of two planets as seen from Sun or from a third planet. A Design Mandala dialog lets you change parameters: The Start date, the Interval and the Number of Steps.
BONUS: Included are a large number of fascinating example mandalas created while the program was being developed.
Software that translates planetary positions into music and plays the music on your computer.
Tune into your essential self - experience the music of the planets at your birth. Listen to the music of any moment in time or space - past, present or future. Experience the power of meditating to the music of the planets "right now".
A new dimension in music, based on the natural laws of harmonics and the Sacred Geometry of Pythagoras. Thousands of years in the making.
