Some useful free resources for traditional astrologers


stargazer

Several people have asked me recently for links to free resources about traditional astrology. Many student astrologers can’t afford commercial programs, and fortunately there is much available online for those who wish to experiment with  traditional techniques.

My favorite free programs for traditional astrology are:

  1. Morinus freeware Traditional:  https://sites.google.com/site/tradmorinus/morinus (I think there may have been some copyright problems with the font used and this may no longer be available.)
  2. Traditional Morinus revised by Elías D. Molins: https://sourceforge.net/projects/morinus/ (This is freeware, generously provided by Elías to the astrological community.)
  3. Planetdance:  http://www.jcremers.com/?id=Home&lan=en  (This program from the Netherlands is a real gem.  (I think only the computer program does Zodiacal Releasing.  Sadly the android app does not have this feature.)
  4. ZET Lite (v.9): http://www.zaytsev.com/downloads.html  This freeware program does a lot of useful calculations.  It provides a list of firdaria (both Hand and Zoller methods) and allows for a wide range of houses including whole sign and Draconic.
  5. Curtis Manwaring’s program Aphesis at http://www.astrology-x-files.com/downloads.html.  You can download either the Apple or the PC verision (aphesis.zip).

For calculating charts online:

  1. https://horoscopes.astro-seek.com/ has a good traditional option.
  2. https://www.astro.com/

For Zodiacal Releasing:

  1. Curtis Manwaring’s program Aphesis at http://www.astrology-x-files.com/downloads.html.  You can download either the Apple or the PC verision (aphesis.zip).
  2. http://nataltransits.com/timelord.html to calculate zodiacal releasing online.
  3. Planetdance:  http://www.jcremers.com/?id=Home&lan=en  (This freeware program from the Netherlands is a real gem.  (I think only the computer program does Zodiacal Releasing.)

    Hi Tony
    This is a free resource, bu not a program. I started a zodiacal releasing Facebook page. The level of expertise of the members runs from complete novices to some seriously knowledgeable people. Ask to join and mention any kind of astrology background and you’re in. I’m only weeding out people I don’t know at all and appear to have no background in astrology. We don’t need the spam. All with a legitimate interest are welcome. Please stop by and look around.

  2. Hi Tony, I use carta-natal.es which is one of the few sites that calculates draconic charts. Astro.com does also but still hasn’t included draconic transits, only tropical transits to draconic charts. Carta-natal.es uses the draconic zodiac and does this kind of transits.
