Astro*Talk is one of the most advanced astrological interpretations ever produced. This is "smart software" that combines the best of two worlds: the interpretive skills of leading astrologers and the power of today's personal computers to accurately calculate, weigh and assemble the correct text based on the elements of a specific natal chart. The result is a report of unmatched precision and insight.
However, regardless of the accuracy of the calculations if the final report is not written with clarity and in a style that is accessible the results are useless. Reports you create with Astro*Talk software are easy to read and can be readily understood even by those who have absolutely no knowledge of astrology. In fact Astro*Talk reports are an exceptional way to introduce someone new to the many benefits of astrology.
No-nonsense descriptions of the basic planetary configurations present in your life, and how they affect you, have made Astro*Talk the most popular astrological report software for professional astrologers for more than 20 years. As sophisticated as it is, Astro*Talk software is exceptionally easy to use. You simply enter the birth data of the individual for whom you are preparing a report and click "process". When done by hand reports of this depth and quality take even the most experienced astrologer many hours to prepare. You do it with the click of a mouse.
This program is the biggest-seller we've ever created - and we've been selling astrology software longer than anyone!
If you are a Professional Astrologer Astro*Talk reports are produced ready to print and mail or email to your clients. Each report is beautifully formatted and can include your own logo or contact information. User defined options within the report let you quickly shape the technique and final output. A built-in editor allows text editing - paragraphs can be quickly and easily modified to reflect your personal preference. There's no limit to text length. You can modify individual reports or work within the actual report database to make your modifications universal and permanent. Before printing the report you can even load it in your preferred word processing program for more extensive modifications to the appearance - add your own graphics or decorative fonts. The program can also print a chart wheel to go with the natal report - there are 12 wheels styles to choose from (ten wheels and two aspect grids).
Inside an Astro*Talk Report
Here's what you will find inside an Astro*Talk report:
If you are providing a report to someone unfamiliar with in-depth astrological reports, you may choose to include a brief introduction to astrology and the concepts used by astrologers today interpreting charts. This is an option that can be turned on or off.
The first and largest chapter of an Astro*Talk report takes the reader through the planets and their aspects, beginning with the Sun and the Moon. You have a choice of nine different aspect sets, plus the option of including or omitting any combination of planets. (Two sets of interpretations in this software means no duplications in the text of planetary aspects).
These Saturn transits in the Grant Lewi-style provide description of major life periods: your personal background, plus a close-up look at your current situation, complete with exact dates of Saturn transits
Do you run hot and fast? Do thing in your life change rapidly? Or is your life less turbulent and more straight-forward? Discover your personal "Burn Rate".
"Burn Rate" is based on a new and exciting technique. The geocentric and heliocentric positions of the planets are analyzed and the planets in high focus are interpreted. Discover if your burn rate is high or low, or in-between and whether the majority of your planets are in the past, present or future.
Chart Pattern/Soul Type
Both geocentric and heliocentric charts are analyzed for major chart patterns and then interpreted. You inner self is contrasted with your outer personality. Keys to both inner and outer aspects are delineated. Even your personal "hot spot" (the most aspected planet) is described.
This section analyzes elements, modalities, and angularities. Discover which you have in abundance or which you are lacking. Measuring these gives a general picture of the person.
Challenges and Abilities
This is a second breakdown of planetary aspects, describing areas of intense focus and activity. Challenges can be difficult, requiring caution and extra patience. Abilities are areas of clear insight and real talent.
Interface Nodes provides a complete heliocentric planetary node analysis. The position of each planet in relation to the other planets is indicated by either inclinations (likes) or disinclinations (dislikes). The nodes represent our root level or core - our innermost qualities.
House Activity and Emphasis
This is a six-to-eight page report on this very important basic part of astrology. Houses, signs, and planets in houses are looked at in this section.
Astro*Talk calculates and interprets transits for Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. It gives dates when the next major transits for these planets are exact in your chart.
This is a 15 page introduction to astrological terms and concepts. Like any of the chapters in an Astro*Talk report you may choose to include or exclude this chapter based on your understanding of your client's needs.
