This functional area of RIYAL has been greatly improved and simplified, making the process so easy and quick to use that the Astrologer can explore and pop up on-screen charts very rapidly while talking with a client. The upcoming year can be reviewed and predicted without interrupting the conversation.
This section has been updated on March 6, 2013.
The process for calculating a Progressed Daily Angles chart (the “daily” chart) which is like the Sidereal PSSR (Progressed Sidereal Solar Return) chart requires us to start with the Solar Return planet positions page as shown in the previous calculation steps. The term “Progressed Daily Angles” chart is my term which was coined so as to not confuse these daily charts with Cyril Fagan’s PSSR (Progressed Sidereal Solar Return) charts. Fagan’s PSSR chart progressed the chart angles about 1.25 degrees per day and utilizes the Solar Return’s planets which it progresses on a day-for-a-year or “secondary progression” basis. My PDA chart utilizes those same PSSR angles but substitutes transiting planets for Fagan’s use of progressed planets. I have found these charts to be far more dynamic and representative of the attitudes, actions and situations that the chart subject experiences. One has to keep in mind that the full depth of the interpretive model presented in my book, Personal Prediction, helps to focus and explain these charts. Examples of that interpretive model are found in the various posts at this blog site.
We start with the Solar Return listing of planet positions and click on “continue” at the bottom of the screen. A selection box is presented against the black-blank screen, offering PSSR, SOLAR QUOTIDIAN, and CANCEL choices as shown in the sub-screen shown at the right side. Select PSSR.
A revised “List View” screen is presented which is much like the prior Annual Hit listing screen with one important difference. Clicking on any date or data within that date’s columns will highlight that date in blue. If one clicks on this selected date, the chart-choice pop-up box shown at the right will be displayed. The user selects the type of chart to be displayed and the following screen will be displayed. This is the PDA chart for Ted Williams on Sept. 28, 1960. This was his last game as a baseball player. At his last “at-bat”, Ted Williams hit a home run at Fenway Park, delighting his many fans. His long career had been interrupted by war time duty as a Pilot, yet he had the highest season batting average of any player, .406 and also managed to reach the base paths more than half of his times at bat.
As was noted in earlier steps, the user can right-click the mouse and be presented with a pop-up choice box to enable the chart to be copied to the clip board, saved in a file, or printed. If the choice “continue” is made, the screen re-displays the List View of dates, angles and planets at angles so that another chart can be explored. As noted at the start of this section, this whole new process offered by RIYAL greatly facilitates the creation and display of charts while also engaging in a dialogue with a client. For home study, this is also a fabulous improvement.
