Editors' Review

+

Astrolog is for the true astrology follower. It's much more than a horoscope calculator. It boasts wheels, aspects, midpoints, relationship charts, biorhythms, alternative zodiacs, and much more. Its celestial tools include local horizon, constellations, astrography, and planetary orbits, with ephemeris (astronomical positions) for 8,400 years. Astrolog handles scripts and macros and exports charts and images. Astrolog 5.40 is open-source freeware for Windows NT to 8, including Server versions.

Astrolog's user interface reminds us of colored chalk on the blackboard; and yes, that's good. The main window opened with the default chart, the traditional Zodiac for the day, hour, and location, with House, the Julian Day equivalent, and other data color-coded to the chart in a panel. The menu bar offers a lot of View and Edit options, including macros, chart output, custom colors, and aspects. Even the Animate menu has numerous settings, nearly all of them with submenus. The Help menu is equally impressive, with Documentation, Keystrokes, Switches, Obscure Switches, and many reference Lists. Atrolog's is packed with Charts, Chart Info, Biorhythms, Transit and Natal, and other esoteric information. Admittedly, our astrological knowledge isn't deep, but Astrolog is obviously the product of long refinement and enhancement, and a labor of love.

We wonder what in the night sky could be more profound than the typical Hubble image, but there's no doubt that astronomy's free-spirited cousin provides deep astrological information. Our astrological adventures probably won't stray far from the Daily Horoscope, but if you're more adventurous, we can't imagine a better guide to astrology's mysteries than Astrolog.

"Couldn't install"

May 19, 2009  |  By blueaz

 |  Version: Astrolog 5.40

Pros

Don't know...

Cons

Very DOS-like interface on installation. Couldn't figure out how to install, then it froze & wouldn't close. Had to ESC & got a scary warning dialog. It went straight to the Trash!

Summary

Installer is not user-friendly! Froze up & did scary things...

"There are mistakes in calculations in czech version."

December 30, 2008  |  By jaroko1

 |  Version: Astrolog 5.40

Pros

Czech word cerven is Juni and word cervenec is July. In czech calculations is Cervenec the same as cerven. July is the same as Juni and there are not calculation fof July

Cons

I sudgest improving of your grafic chart.

Summary

Ve Vasem programu pro vypocet horoskopu je zavazna chyba a to ze , kdyz se zada mesic cervenec tak je vypocet pro mesic cerven. Tak na priklad zadam datum 2.cervence 1940 21 hodin, tak se objevi pozice planet 2. cervna 1940 21hodin. Kdyz zadam 2. cervna 1940 tak se objevi stejny horoskop. Jinymi slovy je vynechany mesic cervenec July a misto toho je cerven.
Zajimam se o astrologii mnoho let, predevsim o udalosti. Pro vypocet udalosti (zivotnich mezniku) je vyhodne do jednoho horoskopu zverokruhu zaznamenat socasne pozice zakladniho horoskopu - radixu, progresivniho horoskopu a tranzitniho horoskopu.
Pro Vas by se jednalo jen o jine graficke usporadani.Rad bych Vam poslal moji grafickou upravu, ktera je velmi prehledna a ryche se da v ni orientovat, ale nevim na jakou adresu to poslat.

S pozdravem Jaroslav Kolar

"The Best for free"

February 10, 2008  |  By Kevinalmer

 |  Version: Astrolog 5.40

Pros

It is by far and away the best. But it is not going to tell a novice the type of things a professional could. The program gives accurate charts in any number of formats. For an advanced student it is very nice, and it is simble enough to manuver through to get basic information.But you have to study, study, study if you want know what it is going to tell you. No free lunch here, for a beginner.

Cons

The midpoint format is cumbersome. It could have been simplified to be more readable. The progression system could have had more options, like The Age Point of Huber. The progression system could have a workable variable input.The chart selection could have a midpoint format.

"Not what I was looking for"

December 30, 2007  |  By sheilovealways

 |  Version: Astrolog 5.40

Cons

I downloaded this program to my mother's computer, who has college training in Astrology and has composed her own charts for years, she can't make heads or tails of it. Very confusing. Was gonna download this to my computer, but now just don't think so. Much more simple to go to Astrology.com and have a chart generated, I can do my own interpetations.

"Comprehensive, versatile, accurate and extensive features"

October 16, 2005  |  By danstar33

 |  Version: Astrolog 5.40

Pros

Definitely by far the best freeware astrology program with an amazing selection of calcuations. Highly accurate database, gives much detailed info..

Cons

Not the easiest program to learn especially if you are a novice in astrology, with some obscure functions.

Poor help guide.

annoying bug that results in the present time being wrong and introduces an error of a few hours into calculations which has to be compensated for..

'interpretations' are mechanical at best and questionable in places...Still better than most expensive programs..

"best free astrology program"

October 09, 2004

 |  Version: Astrolog 5.40

Summary

This is the best astrology program for chart calculations. No spyware. The interpretations are basic but it's FREE.
A word to the one negative feedback: You don't need an uninstaller since this program doesn't install, just unzip and run from directory. No 'digging' into Windows which is nice.
Get it and try it and see for yourself.
