INSTRUCTIONS FOR CALCULATING THE PROGRESSED DAILY ANGLES CHARTS USED WITHIN THE NINTH HOUSE BLOG SITE
Dave Monroe, June 9, 2011
After working with several astrological software vendors relative to supplying the needed features to create the PDA charts that I use as part of the MC-Solar Cycle methodology, I am pleased to now announce the availability of the needed software.
This software is RIYAL FOR WINDOWS. It is free to download and use (a donation is welcome but not necessary). RIYAL is a “DOS-like” program which runs under Windows, is esceptionally easy to enter data, and provides a wide range of functionality — perhaps more than many astrologers might use. RIYAL is a creation of Juan Revilla of Costa Rica. Juan is a highly respected authority on the calculation of positional astronomy and an accomplished astrologer.
There are several web sites that provide an astronomical support and sharing community for users of RIYAL software:
- http://www.expreso.co.cr/centaurs/riyal.html This is the site for acquiring RIYAL FOR WINDOWS (5.7 MB), version 3.5.
- http://www.expreso.co.cr/occamrazor/index.php This is a bulliten board discussion site where a variety of astrological practices (tropical, sidereal, precession-corrected) are covered.
- Yahoo Groups has a RIYAL support group where technical questions are asked and answered. To access this site, join Yahoo Groups and search under astrology for RIYAL.
