AstroWin and Cosmodynes

Discussion of astrology and cosmodynes (astrodynes)

Beginning Cosmodynes

Here are the natal cosmodynes for a 59-year old man. What can you tell about this man from just looking at these cosmodynes?

Planet             Power    %         Har/Disc
MOON               61.68  13.9         -6.16
SUN                60.26  13.6          1.58
URANUS             41.88   9.4         -5.92
MC                 39.06   8.8          0.74
ASC                36.63   8.3          5.65
MERCURY            36.15   8.1          2.88
PLUTO              33.85   7.6          1.94
NEPTUNE            30.32   6.8          1.43
JUPITER            28.75   6.5          7.62
VENUS              26.03   5.9          1.90
SATURN             25.05   5.6          7.17
MARS               23.98   5.4         -6.34

The Moon is the strongest planet in this man’s chart. Would you expect some kind of nurturing ability? Or perhaps a domestic streak? If you knew this man had Sun, Saturn, and MC in Virgo, might you guess he would be good helping around the house? What about this man having a “mothering” instinct, or a tendency to take care of those closest to him, a spouse perhaps? Might this man make a good mother? Or maybe even a woman (Virgo likes to nag, right?)? And what if you saw the below in his chart?

House              Power    %         Har/Disc
10              204.12  31.0          4.76
 9               87.96  13.4         -3.62
11               79.48  12.1          5.25
 8               75.37  11.5         -6.02
 1               51.09   7.8          4.55
 2               49.39   7.5         13.23
12               40.49   6.2          0.80
 3               16.73   2.5          0.31
 4               14.77   2.2          2.26
 7               13.02   2.0          0.95
 6               13.02   2.0          0.95
 5               11.99   1.8         -3.17

The 10th house is far and away the most powerful house. Would you expect this man to put most of his energy into work and career (Saturn in Virgo – workaholic?)? What about the 5th house, the house with the least amount of power? Do you suppose this man puts much energy into recreation or children, especially when you consider that the 10th house energy may be so busy working – and loving it – that there just isn’t time to recreate. And who needs to recreate if work is so much fun? And what conclusions can be drawn from these?

Signs              Power              Har/Disc
Fire              114.33               -2.97
Earth             203.49               22.24
Air               175.97                0.84
Water             163.65                0.15        

Cardinal          245.46               -2.12
Fixed             222.31                3.94
Common            189.66               18.43        

Electric (M)      290.29               -2.13
Magnetic (F)      367.14               22.39        

House              Power              Har/Disc
Private           157.71               18.89   (Personal interests and affairs)
Friendship         52.79                0.99   (Companionship with others)
Community         446.93                0.37   (Public activities)

Practical (earth) and intellectual (air).

Takes the initiative (cardinal), yet perhaps sometimes fixed and stubborn (and maybe persistent).

Magnetic (feminine) – this man was once told he would make a very good woman.

Driven to do things for humanity in general, not necessarily for individuals (community – public activities).

Does not pursue companionship with others (friendship houses have the least amount of power).

So after one reviews the natal chart for the tendencies given by planets in signs, planets in houses, and planetary aspects, it can be seen that a review of a person’s cosmodynes can suggest specific details that help fill in the whole picture when trying to understand another person.

  1. Allen,

    are you in Tucson?? That’s the Sonoran Desert you have up there.

  2. No, north of San Diego.

  3. I came across an astrological program Zet by a russian named Zaitsev who used The Message of the Stars throughout his interpretation segment (plus some quotations from other sources). I would not exclude other borrowings on his part.
    If you are interested here is the web site http://zaytsev.com/index.html
    Yes, the Lite version is freeware, but obviously, it is not fully functional.
    Should you find yourself interested enough to test the program (it has English interface option at first sartup) would you share your authoritative opinion of it.
    Thank you.

  4. In the past I downloaded ZET8 and spent some time looking at it. It’s been a while now and since I do not have any specific remembrances of the program (I think it had very fancy graphics), I will assume that I saw nothing that was particularly memorable about it (this is NOT to say it isn’t a fine program, though. It’s just that after all these years things begin to look the same to me).

    I believe Max Heindel’s ‘Message of the Stars’ is in the public domain. I modified one of my early programs and made it into an interpretation program using his interpretations from MOTS (which are quite dated if you read them). The program is called RFInterp and it can be found at:

    http://www.rosicrucianfellowship.org/software/rfinterp.htm

    Other free software is available there also – I don’t think any of it does more than what my software does as the Fellowship programs are basically scaled down versions of my original programs.

    Thanks for your comments.

  5. I’ve been using your programs for quite some time now and have always wondered if you taught any classes. I recently moved to Oceanside, CA and would like some info on any classes you may teach.

  6. Hi, Msteele,

    I do not teach any classes at the current time and there are no plans at present to begin any classes. If there is a change in this, I will inform everyone through this blog. In the meantime visit my cosmodyne page on my website and read all the material there – as well as the books on the reading list.

    Thank you.

  7. Anyone can do their own horoscope and natal report by visiting:

    http://www.astrowin.org/astrology_scripts/natal_form_wheel_2_14.php

  8. Any particular reason you use the Placidus house system? I prefer the Koch system, which puts my Moon in my 7th house, instead of my 8th. What does that do to my harmony factor? Also, do you have any plans to add aspects like the decile (36 degrees), quintile (72), biquintile (144), or any of the nonogon-related aspects (40, 80, 160) to your program’s calculations? They’re all harmonious aspects that show up all over my chart. And how does your program account for constellations like Stelliums, Grand Trines and T-Squares? It’s also been my experience that relationship astrology needs to see some form of 5th and/or 7th house involvement for a potential romantic relationship to have much of a chance. How do Cosmodyne calculations work these in?

  9. >> Any particular reason you use the Placidus house system?

    Yes, because that is what the greats of the past used (Max Heindel, William Lilly, Elbert Benjamine, Alan Leo, etc.) and Placidus houses also fit better in describing me and my 3rd house, I believe.

    >> I prefer the Koch system, which puts my Moon in my 7th house, instead of my 8th. What does that do to my harmony factor?

    It probably more affects your power, not your harmony so much. Run my Astro123 software and see for yourself. I don’t know offhand, but you can check it out using various houses.

    >> Also, do you have any plans to add aspects like the decile (36 degrees), quintile (72), biquintile (144), or any of the nonogon-related aspects (40, 80, 160) to your program’s calculations?

    No, as Elbert Benjamine (who had spiritual sight), the inventor, saw no need to include these.

    >> They’re all harmonious aspects that show up all over my chart.

    But that does not mean they are necessarily meaningful. Noel Tyl recognizes the quintile (creativity) and the quindecile (165 deg), but not any of the others. We should only add more aspects or other bodies/factors IF and only if something in the chart cannot be explained by what is already there.

    >> And how does your program account for constellations like Stelliums, Grand Trines and T-Squares?

    All aspects add to the totals, so whether or not a planet is part of these larger configurations or not, the influences are all summed up. You might want to read Elbert Benjamine’s “Astrodyne Manual” for all the details.

    >> It’s also been my experience that relationship astrology needs to see some form of 5th and/or 7th house involvement for a potential romantic relationship to have much of a chance. How do Cosmodyne calculations work these in?

    Cosmodynes don’t tell you whether or not a couple SHOULD be together or WILL be together, they simply tell you how the vibrations of each person react as a unit. Oil and water don’t mix. Shake them up all you want and they still won’t be harmonious. The same with people. Two people who share discord between them are like oil and water. Why be with someone whom you share discord with when there are so many others you can be harmonious with?

  10. Greatings,
    Not sure that this is true:), but thanks for a post.

    Thank you
    SonyaSunny

  11. Greatings,
    Can i get a one small photo from your site?

    Have a nice day
    Elcorin

  12. Like which photo?

  13. Your latest Astrowin download seems to be incorrect based on a professionally done natal chart. My correct natal chart shows your Astrowin program to be over 40 degrees in error on the Part of Fortune with possible other errors. Your previous Astrowin versions seem to be correct. I need an accurate Astrowin download. What can I do to get an accurate Astrowin download? Thank-you.

  14. Hi Ruth,

    Please check your setting for option #218. I suspect it is set in such a way that gives you a day position for a night chart or a night position for a day chart. Also check the Part of Spirit as it uses the “mirrored” calculations of the Part of Fortune. I bet the two are simply “reversed”. I think you will find AstroWin totally accurate, depending on your option settings.

    Here is what it looks like in the OPTIONS (change the ‘2’ in the first column to whatever you like):

    2 ;Opt #218 – For P.o.F., 0 = use day formula, 1 = use night formula, 2 = use whichever applies

    Allen

  15. Ruth writes back to me:

    Thank-you Allen for your help with Astrowin. I did what you suggested and now your Astrowin program works just fine. I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to have your Astrowin program to use-it has everything an astrologer could want. Thank you very much.

    Ruth

  16. Does someone know whether there is a comparison method to determine a twin-soul relationship between two people?

  17. In my opinion there is really no such thing as a twin-soul relationship. In reality – and in the invisible worlds – all are one, so this would negate anything which may be representative of separatism, which the term twin soul implies. Second, we have all lived so many past lives and had so many relationships with so many different souls that to say that one and only one of them is “perfect” for us just doesn’t seem likely to me. Down here on the physical plane illusion is commonplace and the ideas of soul mates and twin souls are among these illusions. But perhaps I am wrong with regard to this matter.

  18. Hi Allen, I have finally worked with your Astrowin software and I am pleasantly surprised to find as much data as you provide. You are amazing!

    The main interest I had in your software was the Volguine planetary strengths. After sifting through a few of the data pages I find quite a lot of information and on this page, the explanation of the person with the Moon as strongest planet helps to define how to look at the cosmodynes or strongest planet. Of course that led me to look at the strongest houses and both analyses do describe me very well.

    I plan to work more with your software and perhaps ask questions. I can add this comment as well. It is good of you to include declination information and a solarmapping. Said earlier – you are simply amazing. For new declination graph information and short blurbs about Sotomayer, M. Jackson and a few others, go to my website and choose Waves of the Future under Special Features. http://weathersage.com Carolyn

  19. Dear Allen,
    Is there information somewhere to explain how to use the various options in Matchmaker, such as checking relationship box, best days, parameters, etc? I get confused by certain things. I suppose it would be a time-consuming challenge to have popups for each box, perhaps someone else with the knowledge would be able to offer that addition to your program to make it more user friendly to neophytes. Thanks, Paul

  20. Have you read everything in all the .hlp files – the help files? All the .hlp files are combined into one file called ‘helpfile’. Open that with any text editor and read it or print it. In addition, under the HELP menu, there is the menu item called “Tip of the Day”. It gives a lot of practical information and it is perhaps the best source to start with. I suppose I would not consider MatchMkr a program necessarily designed for neophytes. But we all have to start at some level. Patience and persistence ALWAYS leads to success in time. Keep at it and it will get easier. Depending on what you are trying to accomplish, perhaps there is another program that might better serve your needs. MatchMkr is more or less a research program, thus adding the complexity that research entails.

  21. Allen,
    are there any Spiritual astrologers with RF background at the AFA, or otherwise, whom you would recommend?
    Thanks.

  22. … assuming you can’t be bothered :) with us individuals.

  23. I am not familiar with the astrologers at the AFA, so I can’t tell you anything about that. If Max Heindel were alive, I think he would say that any astrologer who charges money is not a true spiritual astrologer. Yet I know that in order to get good at anything you have to practice, practice, practice. And how many of us can practice sufficiently enough if we have to work for a living doing something besides astrology? So it is really a catch-22. I am not personally familiar enough with any astrologer in order to be able to recommend one. I know that Noel Tyl knows his stuff (www.noeltyl.com). Who else beside him would I trust? I don’t know. Shall I forward your first post to a group in Madison, WI that may be able to suggest more to you than I have? I don’t have your e-mail. If you share it with me, I can proceed. As far as my abilities, I would say I am rusty from lack of practice – I have to work as a programmer rather than an astrologer in order to earn my daily bread, which doesn’t leave much time for astrological analysis. What are you interested in exactly?

  24. Oh, I thought the AFA banner on your homepage meant you would recommend them to the public.
    (‘can’t be bothred’ wasn’t about abilities, but rather your priorities as can be seen from the cosmodynes in this posting:)
    I am interested in a consultation beginning with rectification, relocation and all the way down to ‘what do I do with this life now’ :)
    I keep returning to Max Heindel’s books and courses, but for some reason, it always happens during Mercury’s retrogradation. Do you think that means I will never get myself together to study astrology systematically and be capable of figuring my own charts out myself?

  25. >> Oh, I thought the AFA banner on your homepage meant you would recommend them to the public.

    I recommend them as a book seller and astrological material provider. I don’t think they do readings.

    >> (’can’t be bothred’ wasn’t about abilities, but rather your priorities as can be seen from the cosmodynes in this posting:)

    I guess anything is fair game in this blog. Of course writing me direct is also an option – you don’t have to use this blog for communication if you don’t want to.

    >> I am interested in a consultation beginning with rectification, relocation, and all the way down to ‘what do I do with this life now’ :)

    In other words, everything.

    >> I keep returning to Max Heindel’s books and courses, but for some reason, it always happens during Mercury’s retrogradation. Do you think that means I will never get myself together to study astrology systematically and be capable of figuring my own charts out myself?

    It takes practice, over and over. So it depends on your motivation and your priorities. I started studying astrology in 1973 – I studied it every day, usually for hours. I did everyone’s chart I could in order to get feedback from what I was interpretating and reading. All this increased my store of knowledge. I started with Max Heindel’s material, but then went on to all kinds of other books – see the reading list in any of my programs. One person or one avenue isn’t sufficient enough to give you all the knowledge you want and need. The more you read and the more charts you work on, the better you will get. I can’t say much about rectification or relocation because I haven’t spent enough time doing those things, but Noel Tyl can perhaps give you insight on where you are in your life and where you could be going, based on current planetary influences (solar arcs mainly, along with the progressed Moon). He has helped a lot of people in this regard – and with vocational guidance as well. I don’t know who is better. He has decades of experience doing this almost every day. You get pretty good by doing something every day for years.

  26. hi
    I just love your software. I have downloaded few of them.

    I have few questions, I would be obliged if you reply .

    I have downloaded Astro123.
    I do not know how to use the second coloumn, which starts just below the TOTALS. These columns has different sets of information.

    Is Church of Light software calculates the aspects as per the normal rules of aspects? Or is it some kind of diffrent branch of astrology?

    i am new to Western Astrology!!!

    According to many online programmes, I dont have sun conjunct mercury,but I got this aspect from Church of Light software, so little curious.

    Thanks for the Software,

  27. 1) I don’t know to what you are referring when you say “TOTALS”. If you are looking at a single person’s cosmodynes, then the second section is always sorted by harmony, whereas the first section is always sorted by power. The information is the same – it is just sorted differently.

    2) Yes, the Church of Light calculates aspects differently. They use much wider orbs than “standard” astrology. Different planets have different orbs depending on the planet, its house location, and the aspect it is making. The Church of Light literature explains this – http://www.light.org.

  28. Hi, Allen, pls put me through, in cosmodynes calculation must Asc and Mc be included among the planet list? I thought Asc and Mc is the same with 1st and 10th repectively. Who felt the relationship more? Is it the person with the highest power * harmony number? Please equally help me by throwing more light with my data. 16 july 1980 6:15am 6N27;7E27 Enugu, Nigeria. Thanks

  29. Which of these is the person willy to offer in the relationship, the power planet energy or the harmony planet energy?

  30. I have deep interest on astrology since i was 7 years old,and am self thought. From my own understanding and definition of astrology;thus Astrology is a science that studies the HEAVENLY INFLUENCE surrounding the TIME and SPACE of the BIRTH of an ENTITY. An entity can be an individual,event or anything. I am who I am based on the heavenly influence on my birth data. If that is true, can someone cast a cosmodynes based on a particular time and space to know waht that time and space hold for him based on power and harmony? Then how do we interpret that cosmodynes?
    Thanks

  31. >> in cosmodynes calculations must Asc and Mc be included among the planet list?

    Yes, when using natal cosmodynes (assuming you know the exact time of birth).

    >> I thought Asc and Mc is the same with 1st and 10th respectively.

    Yes, they are. But the Asc and MC are two important points and thus are included amongst the planets.

    >> Who felt the relationship more?

    We are talking about a natal chart here, so there is no relationship.

    >> Is it the person with the highest power * harmony number?

    If we were talking about dual cosmodynes (for a relationship, which does not include the MC, by the way), then perhaps the above is true. But more research is needed in order to really understand this dynamic. It could also be that person whose Venus is stronger. Again, more research is needed.

  32. >> Which of these is the person willing to offer more in the relationship, the power planet energy or the harmony planet energy?

    Uncertain – more research is needed in this area of study.

  33. Here are the natal cosmodynes for a 31-year old man. What can you tell about this man from just looking at these cosmodynes?

      MARS                9.29   1.3         -3.87

    Discussion will follow when I have further examined this chart.

    Preliminary thoughts: look at that very low-power Mars. Does this mean this person has little drive, initiative, energy, and/or ambition? Or does this low-power Mars indicate a “peregrine” condition as defined by Noel Tyl as “a planet that makes no Ptolemaic aspects to any other planet”. Mars is indeed peregrine according to Tyl’s definition. Mr. Tyl would say that this would then suggest “high adventure and a high energy image that needs to be expressed.” So which is it? Let’s see if this person will offer his thoughts. Certainly with the Sun as the most powerful planet this would suggest that this person has a great need for self-expression and getting himself noticed. There is usually a lot of ambition in a person whose Sun is strong. But here, is there energy enough to get this person to actually do what is required with his Sun’s ambitions? You may have plenty of wood to burn, but if there is no fire, then the wood doesn’t burn.

    Here is an example from My. Tyl regarding peregrination:

    With a peregrine planet, the probability is high that the affairs of the house(s) ruled by the planet will be strongly emphasized. A peregrine planet (‘unaspected’) wants to take over. It will emphasize itself usually in terms of the house(s) it rules. For example, Mars in Sagittarius (always arch opinionation) may rule the 3rd house, which reinforces the martial communication of personal opinion, what’s right with the world, etc. If Mars rules the 4th house, then the opinionation is related to parental issues, probably the mother.

    So with a peregrine Mars in the 3rd house, this suggests a need to be helpful, popular, enjoyable, or attractive – and great energy and force will be directed in communicating this. Sound reasonable?

    Look at all the planets in the northeast quadrant of the chart (houses 1 – 3). Mr. Tyl would suggest this: “there is unfinished business in the early home, lots to acknowledge defensively; a vulnerability is established.”

    The cosmodynes, both planet and house, suggest personal matters are very important to this person. This include values and the need to communicate the self regarding the self.

    The 7th house of relationships is the weakest house. My first thought would be that perhaps this person wants a relationship, but does he really care about it all that much? With all that energy directed into personal issues and affairs, who has the time and energy (weak Mars) for another person and all their issues. An interesting line of thought to pursue.

    Look at all the Cancer and Virgo energy. First thoughts: huge need for security (probably because of conditions in the early home?), packrat (hoarding things in order to feel the security needed), perfectionist (nothing is ever good enough, because maybe this child was never good enough in the home?), a nag? (for all the reasons previously mentioned).

    Lots of emotion (water). Clingy?

    Cardinal signs do give initiative, but the lack of fixed signs suggests a lack of follow-through. Does he start things and never finish them?

    So after one reviews the natal chart for the tendencies given by planets in signs, planets in houses, and planetary aspects, it can be seen that a review of a person’s cosmodynes can suggest specific details that help fill in the whole picture when trying to understand another person.

    Thoughts?

  34. Hello admin, i’m using your astro123 software and i find it accurate, and it matches the findings of cafeastrology, dailyscopes, etc. But when i use astro.com, i find their timezone to be erroneous. My time zone is +8 and when i choose the china timezone, they get all my info wrong. (i was born mar. 19, 1985, 10:52am 14N38 121E2). Even if the experienced astrologers say that astro.com is accurate, i couldn’t help but disagree. The details became accurate only when i choose the PST timezone. Since you’re a software developer, i’d love to hear your opinion regarding why astro.com is inaccurate for asian born people.

  35. Without knowing the details of http://www.astro.com‘s atlas, I really can’t offer much. I know that they have their own copy of the “ACS Atlas”. What changes or corrections they might have made to the original is impossible to know. It is also coming to light that the standard ACS atlas has many alleged mistakes in it. If this is indeed the case and all these other companies are using the standard ACS atlas, then maybe they are all wrong, even if they are in agreement. Time zones are a universally painful thing to deal with in astrology. Mistakes are easily made. Who really knows anything for sure? Perhaps the best person to ask is an Asian person who lived through the set time zone in 1985 and who has a perfect memory. I don’t know. We have to trust something and astro.com has always tried to be diligent in their work. So what else can be said? I don’t know myself. Sorry I can’t be more helpful.

  36. I think the error that they made was they unintentionally or intentionally placed a -8 on the china timezone, when it should be +8. In astro123, the results that i get if i use the australian -8 timezone would be similar to the astro.com results that says that i’m a gemini rising. But if we use the correct timezone that is +8 in the place that i was born, then my ascendant would be aquarius, which i can very much relate to, also corroborated by how i can relate to the aspects and house positions. And i tested it too on other people that i’m close to, and it described them very well, from the aspects to the house positions with the +8 timezone. So i think your atlas version is the correct one, and i would like to commend you for doing such a great job. I read in the ascendant table of serendipity-astrolovers.com that the ascendant table that they use (similar to the one astro.com is using) is most accurate for those born in america and the caribbean area, so i think that’s 1 reason why their table is inaccurate for other people.

    Also i would like to suggest an ‘aspects’ feature in the composite reading if ever you plan to release an updated version of astro123, since it only lists the houses. Apart from that, i’m very satisfied with astro123. Thanks alot admin!

  37. I think I misunderstood your first comments. You need to realize that different people and websites do things differently. Some use a minus time zone for EAST geographical longitudes (because you need to subtract their hours from their clocks in order to get to GMT) while others use a plus time zone for EAST geographical longitudes (because you need to add those hours to GMT to get their local clock time). My desktop programs like AstroWin and Astro123 use PLUS time zones for WEST longitudes and MINUS time zones for EAST geographical longitudes because I live in the US (west geographical longitudes) and we have to ADD our time zone to our local clock time to get to GMT (London time is ahead of us), GMT being the standard reference for time for planetary calculations. But the Swiss epehemeris (because they are over in Europe) do the opposite. Knowing who does what relieves all the confusion. I hope this now makes things clear. No one is wrong, just different, based on their orientation to GMT, it seems.

  38. >> I would like to suggest an ‘aspects’ feature in the composite reading if ever you plan to release an updated version of astro123, since it only lists the houses.

    I’m not sure what you mean. There are aspect listings for composite charts under DATA (COMPOSITE CHART PLANETARY ASPECTS), as well as in the wheel (aspec tlines as well as an Aspects menu), as well as in the Composite Report (MEANINGS OF COMPOSITE PLANETARY ASPECTS), which my personal version of the program has. I don’t recall if the public version of Astro123 has the Composite Report since the text is not written by me. Perhaps you can enlighten me on why you think there are no aspect lists.

  39. Yeah, i think you’re right, it does depend on who is in charge of the timezone data. I checked astro123, and it also has a china -8 timezone. I forgot that i always just remove the negative sign in -8 if it appears. In cafeastrology and dailyscopes, we are allowed to edit the timezone, that’s why the results differ if you compare it with astro. But if you google the timezone of the philippines, every website says that it’s a +8, so i think that is what we asians should choose whenever we are asked for timezone info. Anyway, yes indeed i realized that no one is really wrong in this case. It’s just up to the user to investigate a bit and see what causes the varied results, since astrology is usually very accurate.

    And regarding the ‘aspects’, i made a mistake, sorry, i’m just a newbie, lol. Indeed there is an aspects section there, i just had to research on what those symbols mean like * for sextile, the triangle for trine, etc. I was just used to seeing the composite chart at urbanastro, where the aspects were written plain text. Up until now i had no idea what those symbols mean. Thanks admin for your help!

  40. >> I checked astro123, and it also has a china -8 timezone. I forgot that i always just remove the negative sign in -8 if it appears.

    With Astro123, if you click the ‘E’ or the ‘W’ it automatically changes the sign.

    >> if you google the timezone of the philippines, every website says that it’s a +8.

    Yes, 8 hours ahead of GMT, hence +.
