A Computer Program for Charts and Ephemerides
Written by Peter Treadgold
Note: Please contact the Sophia Foundation before deciding to purchase the Astrofire program, as this is an older software that may not work well with your operating system. We can help you to determine what is best for your needs.
The program includes a research module, a catalog of over 3000 stars,
and a database of birth and death charts of many historical personalities
ASTROFIRE is capable of printing out geocentric and heliocentric/hermetic sidereal charts and ephemerides throughout history.
With ASTROFIRE one can:
– compute birth charts in a large variety of systems, including tropical, sidereal, geocentric, heliocentric and hermetic;
– calculate conception charts using the hermetic rule, in turn applying it for the correction of the birth time;
– produce charts for the period of time between conception and birth;
– print out an “astrological biography” for the whole of lifework with the geocentric, heliocentric (and even lemniscatory) planetary system;
– work with the sidereal zodiac according to the definition of your choice (Babylonian sidereal, Indian sidereal, unequal-division astronomical, etc.);
– work with planetary aspects with orbs of your choice.
Included are eight house systems and a variety of chart formats. Also included is an ephemeris program with search facility.
ASTROFIRE runs under Microsoft Windows 2000 and XP. ASTROFIRE does run under Windows 7, however, it is inconsistent on systems that run Windows 7 in 64 bit format.
