CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #110 -- Free Astrology Software
January 21, 2014

We finally finished delineating and writing the free 2014 annual forecasts for the 12 zodiac signs and have posted them on our web site in the mean time.

Talking about free forecasts...

More and more people request more free services or reports through our web site.

We thought it's a good idea to take a moment to write about some wonderful free astrology software first.

We want people to be self-reliant and study real astrology themselves as much as possible and go beyond the sun sign stuff.

Part of this is not as such providing (more) free services or reports but rather pointing to free resources and free astrology software programs so they can have all the tools available to 'more effortlessly' learn about and study this topic.

In this issue we list major free astrology software programs available on the internet.

Love & Light!

Love Forecasts for February 2014

Click here to download the February 2014 calendar in pdf format.

In general, events are likely to happen around February 2, February 9, February 17 and/or February 23-24.

The whole month of February 2014 is dominated and influenced by a cardinal T-square between Jupiter, Pluto and Uranus (the apex planet).

This cardinal T-square is active for the coming months and will slowly develop into a Grand Square (also called a Grand Cross) with the help of Mars in April 2014.

This will accelerate events in the weeks and months to come and things will more and more gain momentum.

More about the Cardinal Grand Square or Grand Cross in our April forecasts.

For now, the T-square between Jupiter, Pluto and Uranus will really mark this month (and the next ones) profoundly.

In the 1st half of the month, Venus will be part of this T-square while it is still conjunct Pluto and will rather have a financial or material meaning.

This T-square will directly affect you if you are born between March 30 - April 3, July 2-5, October 3-7 or December 31 - January 4.

The apex planet (Uranus in Aries) becomes more and more nervous and impatient.

Humanity may have the impression that changes don't develop fast enough, that everything takes ages and tons of administration for reform to happen and that things are not moving forward fast enough.

Well now, impatient Uranus in pushy Aries will become highly explosive and disruptive.

It cannot wait any longer and will break out or break through.

The months to come mark social reforms and accelerating progress (finally!!).

Uranus is the illuminator and awakener, the social and humanitarian reformer and in the more selfish sign of Aries, Uranus will fight for personal and individual freedom like a real activist.

Expect unseen and groundbreaking (r)evolutions in many ways.

Though these influences may unsettle quite a lot, they serve to liberate humanity.

Understand that a T-square in initiating cardinal signs is a highly powerful driver that makes things happen and that will forcefully push things through in a commanding (especially because of Pluto's involvement) but also in a very auspicious way (thanks to Jupiter's involvement).

Things will really start to come out into the open and break out like a volcano in unseen ways.

Prepare for a wild but auspicious ride with relief in the end.

One of the better ways to delineate a T-square in a general sense is to look at it from the perspective of a midpoint in which the apex planet or body (in this case Uranus) is posited right in the middle of the planets or bodies in opposition (Jupiter and Pluto).

Clearly, this T-square is the picture for social reform, surprisingly fortunate changes and/or technological breakthroughs.

Keep this picture in your mind for the next couple of months because it's part of the background of the events that will unfold in the coming months, starting this February 2014.

Aside from this T-square, know that around February 3-4, 2014 the Chinese Year of the (Green Wood) Horse starts and will influence this month and the whole year 2014 alike.

In Chinese astrology, the Horse Year is considered a sign of speedy success which tallies with the signification of the current T-square.

The whole month of February 2014 is likely to influence and affect the following birthdays predominantly:
  • January 31, May 1-2, August 3-4 and November 3-4: February 2014 brings a month of fortunate changes.

    It looks like the right things are happening at the right time for you.

  • February 14, May 16, August 18 and November 17-18: February 2014 brings relief, sudden good luck and windfalls. It's a joyful month and you feel happy.

  • January 27-28, April 28, July 31 and October 31: you are building air castles and doing lots of daydreaming. Be realistic and responsible.

    Don't be too careless.

    Expect lots of expenses and/or financial losses.

  • January 2, April 1, July 3 and October 5: there are fortunate developments going on in February 2014.

    You can successfully keep things under control.
If you are born around January 22, March 8, April 22, June 8, July 25, September 10, October 26 or December 9, you share suffering with others around February 2-3.

The early February days bring some hardship indeed.

Around February 6, Mercury stations and turns backwards at 3° Pisces (conjunct the Fixed Star Sadalmelik).

To you Geminis and Virgos (or Gemini and Virgo Ascendants), expect some hurdles now.

You may not feel too well and things will not turn out in your favor just yet.

It's not your day and you better wait till the end of the month to proceed again at full speed.

Because Mercury is currently in the sign of its detriment, Mercury is very confused and can hardly see through the fog and mist.

Beware of lots of misunderstandings, miscommunication and errors made during the station.

In silent and secret Pisces, retrograde Mercury cannot speak openly or objective.

Messages and documents are silenced or withdrawn for revision.

Because of the exact conjunction of Mercury on the Fixed Star Sadalmelik, legal issues and big lawsuits may be in the news and there may be an ongoing investigation that cannot be revealed any further.

If you are born around January 22, March 8, April 22, June 8, July 25, September 10, October 26 or December 9, you enjoy living together with someone around February 8.

The Sun at 23° Aquarius squares Saturn at 23° Scorpio around February 11.

This waxing square is quite cold (litterally and figuratively), detached and strict.

There is no joy today and responsibilities and duties prevail.

However, if you are born around January 2, February 15, April 1, May 17, July 3, August 19, October 5 or November 18 the days around February 11-12 can be very successful and rewarding though.

Mercury re-enters Aquarius in retrograde motion around February 12-13 resulting in colder weather and increasing wind.

Because Aquarius is an air sign too, expect more traffic- and air-accidents during its stay in Aquarius (especially around February 13-14 and February 17-19).

If you are born around January 1-2, February 14-15, April 1-2, May 16-17, July 3-4, August 18-19, October 4-5 or November 17-18 you're in a very joyful mood around February 14-15.

If you are born around February 14-15, you will feel the bliss your whole (solar return) year (counting from birthday to birthday) long.

There can be stormy weather though around these days here and there.

The Sun and Mercury conjoin at 27° Aquarius around the February 15 Full Moon which falls at 26° Leo.

This is a very auspicious Full Moon resulting in huge opportunities and good luck overall (especially if you are born around this day).

February 16-17 can be(come) very stormy also but there is also some big news of important breakthroughs in the air.

People are in a very talkative mood and there is quite some excitement and tension noticeable.

There is relief and a sudden (fortunate) change of course going on around February 17.

Groundbreaking and exciting discoveries may be breaking news.

However, between February 17-20, some of you may become more realistic and down-to-earth when the Sun enters Pisces around February 18.

The entrance of the Sun in the water sign Pisces will likely increase the water level and amount of precipitation.

There can be inundations, floods and the like here and there.

Realize that the more February goes along, the wetter and stormier the month may get.

Retrograde Mercury at 23° Aquarius squares Saturn at 23° Scorpio around February 19.

The mood is somber, the atmosphere is dark.

You may feel alone or lonely with lots going on in your mind.

There can be mourning around.

It's not a time to decide because hesitation and cautiousness prevail.

This Mercury-Saturn square is a very selfish aspect and it looks like the only things that count are your own interests.

When the Sun and Neptune conjoin at 5° Pisces, the position of the Fixed Star Deneb Adige, around February 23, you have very high ideals.

The period of the conjunction may mark the passing of someone of importance (a celebrity for example).

Beware of floods, inundations etc. here and there because the aspect increases water-related issues.

Around February 26, Jupiter at 10° Cancer squares Uranus at 10° Aries.

As all exact Jupiter-Uranus aspects, this one too will bring technological innovations, discoveries etc. that may be real milestones.

So, the whole month of February may bring technology-related breakthroughs that will not remain unnoticed.

The downside of this exact square is differences in worldviews that still may block progress and need to be resolved.

This can be a very opposing aspect, resulting in fanatic clashes and denoting that the time is not yet right to go ahead full speed.

Late February (and early March) become very important and may mark 2014 (aside from the April Eclipses that will be discussed in our April 2014 forecasts).

Why will the end of the month and the start of the next month be so powerful?

Here goes:
  • Mercury at 18° Aquarius stations and turns direct again around February 28.

    Rejoice Geminis and Virgos (and Gemini and Virgo Ascendants)!

  • Mars at 27° Libra will station and turn retrograde around March 1

  • Saturn at 23° Scorpio will station and turn retrograde around March 2

  • There is a New Moon at 10° Pisces around March 1
Clearly, there are three planetary stations around the same time that will be felt already late February (because of the slowing down of the planetary motion).

With three planets almost standing still, expect lots of obstructions late February (early March).

In astrometeorology, these planetary stations may increase the likelihood of severe storms and wild or extreme weather.

With Mercury stationing at 18° Aquarius, air crashes may also happen more frequently late February/early March.

What's New on Our Web Site?

We added the 2014 predictions for the 12 zodiac signs and updated different pages that refer to the forecasts.

We also updated our Compatibility horoscopes page with the free astrology software programs listed in this issue.

Free Astrology Software

Many visitors of our web site request more free reports, analyses etc.

Some others want to understand the articles on our web site better and wonder how and where they can find more about real astrology and all its techniques for free.

When people want to learn more about our articles, want to delve deeper into the topic, the first thing people need is a calculation program, i.e. some software that calculates natal charts and other horoscopes.

And here, we can be helpful because there are a couple of free astrology software programs available on the internet that you can download and use to calculate almost all possible horoscopes.

There are the free online horoscope drawings and calculations by Astrodienst, that we recommend of course, but if you rather want to download some software on your harddisk, we will now list major free astrology software.

These are NO trial programs with some basic features, nor are these shareware porgrams.

Instead, these are real free feature-rich astrology software programs and the most reliable ones also.

There are other free software programs too but most of these fail in the Time Zone Atlas or in the Cities Database, or only feature one technique, making them not the right tool for laymen or laywomen.

Please, in any case, read the instructions or tutorials before using any program and make sure the software runs on your computer.
  • Maitreya. Open Source platform for Vedic and western astrology. All major desktop platforms are supported: Windows, Max OS X, Linux and UNIX.

    This program is not that intuitive at first sight. You do need to read the instructions first!

    Also, it has more features for Vedic astrologers and if you want a free software with Vedic capabilities, this is a good choice.

    If you prefer western astrology, there are other free programs that have tons of more advanced features and are more intuitive.
  • StarFisher astrology program for Microsoft Windows only.

    This program is not that intuitive at first sight. You do need to read the instructions first!

    It has some advanced features though and incorporates all the basics.

  • AstroWin. One of the most feature-rich free programs available. It's also easy to set up and use. It's one of the programs we often use and highly recommend.

  • Morinus. It runs on every Operating System where Python and wxPython are available (Linux, Unix, Windows, MacOS).

    There is a traditional version and a modern version.

    The traditional version does not use minor aspects, no outer planets (like Uranus, Neptune or Pluto), uses the Chaldean planet order, uses orbs belonging to the planets and not to the aspects, uses traditional aspects only etc.

  • What Watch. A very neat and beautiful astrology program for Windows only, covering different astrological methods.

    You need to install every country atlas first from their web site (download page) though before you can use the program.

    This is not convenient at all. Otherwise, the software is very interesting.
