This program has been written in
VBScript, a subset of Visual Basic. This means that the program will not work unless
you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer, preferably Version 4 or higher. If you are using
another browser, this page will look terrible, and I suggest that you hit the Back Button
The program will calculate a
horoscope for any date between 1900 and 2050 A.D., once you have selected the Date,
Time and Place in the forms for data entry. If you do not know your exact Latitude
and Longitude at birth, or for the event chosen, either look them up, or make an
approximate guess. Due to popular demand I have now provided a small World
Map, to help approximate guessers!
If you want to find your
Latitude and Longitude accurately, Astrodienst provide an excellent service at
and Timezone Database, with over a quarter of a million towns and cities
Rough values will usually give adequate results, though the
Ascendant, Midheaven and Vertex will be somewhat inaccurate if the Latitude and Longitude
are not precise. Please use the 24 hour clock when entering times, rather than a.m.
The positions for the angles and the
Sun, Moon and inner planets are usually accurate to within one minute of arc, while
positions for the outer planets are now usually accurate to within two or three minutes or
so, (often better). Work continues on improving further on this precision, while
keeping the program down to a reasonable size.
The position is also given for the
hypothetical planet Zed, a transplutonian planet. If you do not want to experiment
with this putative 12th planetary ruler in the horoscope, no harm will be done by ignoring
it, in the same way that astrologers have only had access to Uranus, Neptune and Pluto
during the last 200 years or so, and managed reasonably well without them before they were
Positions are given in degrees and
minutes. The three letters in each line indicate the sign in which the planet, node or
angle is found.

Important Update July 12th 2000.
the bottom of this page - the Script which makes your IP Address visible
in "View Source"), visitors are sometimes having problems in getting the calculator to
work. I have taken matters up with Fortunecity and I still await a
response after more than a week.
In the mean time, if you experience any problems at all with the calculator,
please visit the Mirror
Site Here where the calculator will work just fine. Many thanks,
and apologies for the inconvenience, which is entirely beyond my control..
Please enter the values requested
below in all the boxes, then click the "Horoscope" button.
Please Note: the GMT column is
necessary for times to be corrected for the different time zones around the world.
Please do not forget to take Daylight Saving Time, Double Summer Time etc. into account
when calculating GMT difference (in hours). For example, in winter, New York Time is
GMT -05:00 hours, therefore -5 should be selected in the last column. Also, ensure
that the final box is set to "East" for locations East of the Greenwich
Meridian, (normally for times ahead of GMT).
Thank you for visiting. You can remain on
this page and enter other values, if you want to calculate other horoscopes. All
feedback very welcome. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
