Importing astro database from your software into Astro-Seek private astro database

Importing astro database from your software into Astro-Seek private astro database

I started working on "experimental" script that allows easy import of astro database from various websites/softwares (like Astro. com, Solar Fire, Astro Gold) into Astro-Seek:

Is anyone interested in testing it/helping me with various database formats?

I love your website, it´s the best out there! <3

Just an idea to add to your ALREADY AMAZING idea on the search of planets in signs in your database. You could add on the dropdown menu the houses. So say students (like me) are learning about planets in houses and they want to see charts with pluto in the 7th..

I think it´s valuable! Your idea has already helped me a lot! Thank you!

Also, is there a way to import my database from astro-seek to astro gold?

Thank you!

Hi Elena!

Searching by planet in houses already works in:

1) celebrity search engine:…

2) astro-seek users search engine:…

3) My private database is pretty limited - it´s constantly growing and I can´t allow all search fucntions. So you might search just by Sun in houses and Moon in houses

You can export database in the same AAF format

My Private Astro DataBase > Saved persons > AAF Export - Database backup (Experimental astrology export) »
(at the bottom of the page)
quick link:…

But I´m not sure if Astro gold can import this AAF format? I tried it before and it seemed that Astro gold is using their own/different format.

If you could send me an example of Astro gold database export ... I could try to adjust it again.

"various database formats"

Not much free time here now, but just curious, which db formats are you talking about? I guess you´re not referring to any modern format (importing from SQL and/or NoSQL sources should be almost trivial today -if you have access of course-). May be old dbase-like files? Or some proprietary binary formats with "unknown" structure to reverse engineer?

Hello!!! Thank you soooooo much for getting back to me! You are truly SO GREAT!!!

Astro Gold is the same as Solar Fire, only for apple computers.

On their manual, on the subject of Importing db, it says:

"You can import charts by directly copying them from a USB stick, or across a network (e.g. your wireless router network) using the MacOS Finder application.

Astro Gold for Mac OS keeps its chart files in the "Documents/Astro Gold" folder, by default. You can use "Finder" to manually copy/move any external chart file (*.SFcht, *.dat etc) into this folder if you wish. Charts can be imported for example from Solar Fire, Astro Spark or from the Astro Gold iOS file sharing folder in iTunes. You can also import Time Cycles Io software chart files."

Here is the whole article:…

I see that their charts are created on my mac on a *.SFcht format.

Not sure how I could import the AAF from Astro-Seek.. I guess, if possible, it will be the same way as importing to Solar Fire (whether on .SFcht or .dat).. (it also says "etc", above - but God knows what this could mean! haha!)

Thank you so much again for all that you do. I find your website to be the most amazing tool ever! And thank you for the planets in houses drop down.. I did mean on our personal DB, as I find it very useful to examine a planet in a house and then see who, from all the people I personally know and have charts for, has the specific placement. I am sure that, at your rate of expansion, this will be available soon ;)
