INSTRUCTION AND MANUAL:

THE AUTHOR

This program has been developed by professional astrologer Adrian Ross Duncan in close cooperation with a team of programmers over a period of 1 year. Adrian's main concern during this project was to communicate the very complex astrology - called Synastry - which arises when two horoscopes are compared, in a way that can be easily understood without trivialising the subject. The interpretation text has been inspired by 17 years of private consultations, and many interviews with couples.

OUR GOAL

It is the wish of the WOW development team that this program will make the wisdom and magic of astrology available to as many people as possible in as many countries as possible as inexpensively as possible. We sincerely hope and believe that the insight and advice offered by Astrologi og Parforhold will help people derive the greatest benefit from their relationships and resolve many problems that arise between them. As developers of the program we do not expect the user to have any knowledge of astrology, neither do we expect the user to necessarily commence a deep study of the subject. The only requirement is curiosity and an open mind.

ASTROLOGICAL ADVICE

Astrologi og Parforhold is designed for people in partnership. It is unique in that the horoscopes for both partners are individually analysed, so that the analysis can be read by either partner with equal benefit. It is an extraordinarily complex program which identifies and analyses the many hidden factors which make relationships work.

COMPLEX FACTORS

The program contains a range of unique compatibility factors never seen before in a Synastry program, such as identifying the same influence being present in both horoscopes (Mutuality), and the same influence mutually affecting both partners. (Double Mutuality).
A vast array of nuances are assessed - for example the program interprets every different combination of the Sun signs of two people, Moon signs, Venus signs, Mars signs, Mercury signs and Descendant signs...432 combinations in all.
To ensure that each analysis is completely unique, individual texts are merged with the main body of text specifically relating to the person in question. For example each House placement of Venus and Mars has 12 variations, dependant on which Sign Venus is in.
Finally the graphs show at a glance 7 parameters of compatibility, as well as temperament and dynamism factors.

VIDEO ANIMATIONS (CD Version)

Six months of work went into designing the 25 video animations in the Astrology for Lovers program. This work, done by Adrian's partner, Nini, was created using Corel Draw, Macromedia and Adobe Premiere. These funny yet educational 20-second animations succinctly sum up 12 masculine and feminine astrological archetypes.

PERSONAL REPORTS

Not only can all interpretations be read on-screen simply by clicking on the graphs, these interpretations can be printed out as reports. These reports are composed in a carefully worked-out sequence to make an in-depth analysis of a relationship which is astonishingly accurate.

USER-FRIENDLY COMPATIBILITY

Astrologi og Parforhold uses the same database as our earlier interpretation program Horoskop Fortolker, which means that data entered in one program is accessible to the other.
This new program naturally has all the user-friendly facilities of the earlier program. As soon as you enter the birth data automatic functions look after the rest. The program's enormous database - with over 85,000 towns in over 300 countries - looks after all the details regarding geographic coordinates, time zones and Summer time.

OUR WEB SITE
In line with our vision of creating an astrological environment for the 21st century, users are encouraged to log on to our website, which contains articles, predictions and more information about software, as well as links to the vast world of astrology online

There are 24 video animations in the program, 12 for Venus and 12 for Mars. Each relationship analysis will contain 4 animations, one for Venus and one for Mars for each person.

  • You can see the relevant animations by clicking first on the Mars or Venus symbol in the horoscope wheel, then on the video icon which appears on the Icon Bar.
  • You can also click on the Mars and Venus symbols in the Compatibility Graph. The animations for the partner in question is displayed in the small interpretation window which opens.

>> back to instructions

05. NAME DATA

To access names you can either click on File then on Name Data or simply click on the Heart Icon on the far left of the Icon Bar. The Name Data window opens.

When entering birth data do NOT adjust for Daylight Savings Time or Zone Time. The program compensates automatically.
Astrologi og Parforhold uses a special system for unknown birth times. A horoscope is calculated for noon, zero degrees of the Sunsign is placed on the Ascendant, and equal solar houses are used.
There is a fast way of entering a name which already exists in the database. Click on View/Name List, then drag the appropriate name into the horoscope wheel.

>> back to instructions

If you enter a town which does not exist in the database a window opens asking you if you wish to add the new place name to the Atlas Database.

  • You can then proceed by clicking OK.

>> back to instructions

10. THE BARS IN THE COMPATIBILITY GRAPH

The program opens by default to show the Horoscope Window, on which both the Compatibility Graph and the Element/Modality graph are located. By clicking on the relevant Tab you can access the Compatibility Graph. You can also display the graph by clicking on the horizontal bar graph on the Icon Bar, or by selecting the graph from the View menu.

  • When you pass the mouse over each bar of the graph you will find the bars split up into a positive and negative column, describing the positive and difficult contacts to the particular planet represented by the bar.
  • Now click on the positive or negative side of the bar. A list of the different influences from one partner to the other are now shown.
  • Choose any one of the influences and click on it. You will now have a specific interpretation describing one kind of influence or behaviour in the partnership.

>> back to instructions

11. THE PLANET SYMBOLS AND CENTRAL BUTTONS

On either side of the central parameter (e.g. Romance/Riches) are planet symbol buttons.

  • Click on one of these symbols. You can now read a text which summarises all the influences in the bar graph, describing how strong these influences are.
  • If you click on either the Mars or the Venus symbols, a video animation will also be displayed. When you click on the icon an animation opens depicting the behaviour associated with the particular person.
  • When you click on one of the seven central parameter buttons, you will be able to read a text describing the combination of both partner's planets.

>> back to instructions

12. THE ELEMENT/MODALITY GRAPHS

To see these graphs click on the vertical graph icon on the Icon Bar, or on the Element/Modality Tab in the Horoscope Window, or by clicking View/Element & Modality Graph.

  • The upper right spool button brings you to the next of the four sections.
  • The lower left button brings you back to the previous interpretation.
  • The RED lower right button leads you forward through the interpretation bit by bit.

16. THE DROP-DOWN BOXES

  • Similar combination texts are available for the signs of the Moon, Descendant, Venus, Mars and Mercury. Note also that a drop-down box sometimes appears here with Mutuality or Double Mutuality on. These shows special compatibility factors and greatly enhance the relationship bond - especially the rare and important Double Mutuality.

>> back to instructions

17. INTERPRETING ASPECTS:

The Astrologi og Parforhold program first examines influences in the individual horoscope, then influences from one horoscope to the other.

  • The strength of contacts between planets in the individual horoscope, (Aspects) is indicated by a red barometer.
  • The astrological symbols representing the aspect are shown in the Interpretation Window.
  • The aspected planet symbols flash in the Horoscope Window. Note also that almost every influence has a keyword attached (in the keyword box) which summarises the influence in question.

>> back to instructions

18. CONTACTS BETWEEN CHARTS:

  • Click on the red button to go through the interpretation and note that the text switches from the left to the right column, as each influence is explained first for one partner, then the other.
  • When an influence in one horoscope affects the other, then text comes in both columns, explaining the same influence from two different points of view.
  • One, two or three symbols can appear above a partner's name indicating the strength of the mutual influence, and a sound icon can be clicked to hear the program's own audible opinion of the influence.
  • Planets will flash in the corresponding horoscope, indicating which astrological symbols are represented by the text.

>> back to instructions

19. THE INTERPRETATION BAR:

As an alternative to using the red interpretation button, you can click on the planets in the Horoscope Window.

  • Note that the Interpretation Bar now appears.
  • Click on the Interpretation Bar buttons to display text in the Interpretation Window.
  • The buttons are organised firstly to show astrological influences for yourself, then to show how these influences affect your partner.
  • By clicking on any aspect in the drop-down list, you can read the corresponding interpretation, and the affected planets will flash on screen.
