Cast charts from 3000 BC to 3000 AD. Easy chart calculation and editing.
One click "Here and Now" function. Search
for aspects in no time, search for planets on specific zodiac degrees
(free choice, i.e. for ingress charts or select natal position for
returns), phases of the moon, eclipses (Solar and Lunar. Excluding
"Penumbral Eclipses", which aren't hardly eclipses at all. They are not
visible and only of "academic interest", even for astronomers. Here You
don't have to bother with them.)
You get the most precise calculations due to the "Swiss Ephemeris" included in Mercurius
ACS-Atlas with more than 255'000 places and the most precise time zone
information available on the market is integrated. You can freely expand
it by personal places.
Placidus, Regiomontanus, Alcabitius, Whole Sign Houses, Equal Houses, Porphyrius, Campanus
from the regular tropical zodiac those Virgos among You who think they
are Leos can choose between 17 different ayanamshas: Fagan/Bradley;
Lahiri; Deluce; Raman; Ushashashi; Krishnamurti; Djwhal Kuhl;
Yuketshwar; Jn Bashin; Babylonian (Kugler 1, 2 and 3); Babylonian
(Huber); Babylonian (eta Pisces); Aldebaran as 15 Taurus; Hipparchos;
Sassanian and Galactic Center as 0 Sagitarius.
Unfolding the chart
predictive techniques a classical astrologer needs are available on one
click. No bothering with searching screen after screen until I am
finally where I want to be.
Real Primary Directions according to Placidus, Alcabitius and
Regiomontanus as well as the the AlcaPlaci version (using Placidian
directions but Alcabitius house cusps).
Primary Directions and Secondary progressions include:
Progressions/Directions to all natal places, fixed stars, ingress into
signs and terms. Choose which factors You want to progress and which
factors you want them to be progressed too!
of course will be shown as charts or you can see a speculum with the
exact "hit" dates. (The drawing of the primary direction is a projection
to the ecliptic. The exact hit dates can differ from the drawing, as
every planet is directed according to it's own arc).
1 click Solar and Lunar Return
Using the time machine, you can step through solar/lunar return charts or progressions in an instant.
1 click prenatal eclipse and pre natal full/new moon
calculates your prenatal lunation or eclipse chart with one click. It
automatically recognises, if this was a solar or lunar eclipse and cast
the chart. Same thing for the Syzygy. It automatically calculates, if
you are a new- or full moon birth and gives you the chart with one click.
A list of exact start dates of major and sub periods is just one click away.
just "Move everything 30° per year"-Progressions, but real profections.
For yearly profections, everything is progressed by one sign per year.
From there, for every month one sign is progressed in the monthly
progressions. And again from here you get your daily progressions.
Choose if You want 1 sign per day or one sign per 2.5 days.
An clear overview of everything the traditional astrologer needs is given in easy to understand tables.
the dignity graph which immediately shows you the value of the
accidental and essential dignities directly beside the chart wheel, you
can have a detailed table of all essential and accidental dignities. Of
course You can set all point values as you like them. You can choose
between Dorothean triplicity rulers or just day and night rulers. You
can choose, if Mars or Venus are the day ruler for the Water triplicity.
All accidental fortitudes and debilities as given by Lilly are

The temperament is calculated according John Frawley. You
have several options to change: Include or ignore oriental/occidental
or just include it, if the planet is in the same hemisphere as the sun,
count the Asc twice, select the LoG or use the suggestion given by
Mercurius. Calculation is done according to primordial qualities (Mix of
hot, cold, dry and moist) and by temperament (mix of Choleric,
Sanguine, Phlegmatic and Melancholic factors). All 5 factors are given
in a separate list. Also the overall temperament is shown. Graphically
and in words.
Lord of the Geniture is calculated as a suggestion, according to William Lilly.
Significator of Manner is calculated and given as additional information on the temperament sheet
have included even more fixed stars than any other program and we
included Robson's names. Show all of them or select them by magnitude.
Show only the ones that are in conjunction with planets and house cusps
in the natal chart. Orbs according to magnitude!
Beside this, You can select fixed stars to be shown in the chart
drawing and be included in directions/progressions. Besides the name and
planetary nature, for every fixed star you will get the information in
which constellation it is, when it rises, when it culminates, what the
star name and the constellation name means in your language. Some of
them even make sounds according to their nature.
list of all planetary hours for each day is given as well as the
duration of a day or night hour. In the chart wheel, the planetary day
and hour is automatically shown.
page per month. From 3000BC to 3000 AD. Retrograde periods are clearly
marked. Show or hide the invisible planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
Lots or "Arabian Parts"
Arabian parts as given by Biruni are included. No auto turning or not
turning in day or night charts. You freely define the formula for day
and night and this is used! So you
can include parts that have totally different formulas in day and night
charts like Asc + Sun - Dispositor of Sun in day charts and Asc + Moon -
dispositor of moon in night charts. Yes, you can include Planets, house
cusps, dispositors, house rulers, the Syzygy, the Dispositor of the
SYZGY, the Part of Fortune and Spirit, House rulers et. al. in your
formulas. You can add or change any Arabian part you want.
Elements and Modes
handy table that tells you, how many planets are in fire, air, water
and earth signs as well as in cardinal, fixed and mutable signs.
Night and day
course Mercurius distinguishes between night and day. But you can
include an orb for this. The civil dusk for instance, where it is still
possible to read a newspaper outside, even if the Sun already is "below
the earth" ranges up to 6 degrees below the DC. Nobody would call this
"night". Same thing with dawn. It is bright light before the Sun
actually crosses the Asc. Therfore You can set an orb within which the
chart still/allready is a day chart, even if technically the Sun is just
in the 6th or still in the 1st house. This is important for
dignity-calculation as well as for Arabian parts.
Show one chart (also as full screen mode with hidden data for teachers), show
two charts side by side, show synastry. Show the "Soul-Chart":Arabian
parts are projected to the outside of the chart. You can use the "Natal
Arc Projected Parts" for the Architecture of the Soul (see Astrologers
Apprentice No 21) The 7 key-parts always are given. You can select up to
18 more parts to be shown here. Turn the chart: You have a question
about your cat? Turn the chart so house 6 will become house 1.
BUT: It will not be moved to the actual AC place. Just the house
numbering will change. Otherwise one could think: AH, if house 6 is
house 1 now, then actually house 6 is an angular house. This is wrong
and therefore we chose a different way to show the turned chart.
Eye of Horus
the usual aspect grid, which recognises sign boarders and does not show
aspects that are no aspects, because there's a sign border involved
(unless you ignore this, then also out of sign aspects are given), we
have the "Eye of Horus" function. Clicking on a planet will show the
"rays" of this planet and draws its orb circle around the end of the
ray. All other orb circles also are shown. So You immediately see, if
something is applying/separating but still in the "moiety of Orb". Click
again to hide the rays.
chart You always will find a graph that shows which planet applies to
which. Select the orb circles, if You want to see them.
the chart You always will see a graph that shows the amount of dignity
(essential and accidental as separate bars) each planet has. This is a
great tool for elections, if combined with the time machine
any chart (natal, progressed, directed, solar returns, Luna returns and
so on) forward or backward through time, according to the chosen
system. So Lunar Return will always skip forward to the next lunar
return, solar returns to the next solar return, progressions will move
forward 1 day per year and so on. You can do this step by step or as an
animation that runs on it own until you stop it
You see an animated version of the geocentric solar system. The earth
surrounded by the 7 planetary spheres and by the sphere of the fixed
stars. You can travel into the future and watch the crazy dance of
Mercury and Venus around the Sun, or admire the gravity of Saturn. This
is what happens "out there". But sitting outside for 28 years to watch
one full Saturn cycle is a little tiresome, so you can speed this up as

Unlimited Chart Notes
You bothered with that 500 words you can add as a chart note in most
programmes? Well, You even can write a book for each chart in Mercurius.
It uses your standard text editor (i.e. Microsoft Office Word) and
connects it to the chart. So write as much as you want. It will be saved
with the chart as an rtf file and opened again, each time you click on
the "Notes" button when you have the chart on the screen.
