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.
