Bi-Wheel charts (synastry, transits) - What is your favourite graphic style?
Hello,
I´m trying to re-design various graphics of bi-wheel charts and I would appreciate your personal feelings, experiences and feedback which style would suit you the most?

Also, if you have any favourite software - please post it´s graphics here for inspiration.


1) V1 - Both partners/events are inside the zodiac:

2) V2 - Natal A is inside the zodiac; Natal/Event B is outsite the zodiac:

3) V3 - Similar to V2; Inside A planets are in one row and they carry planet °Degree:

(disadvantage - the planets might get pretty far from their exact location, so you must always check that exact degree)

4) V4 - Similar to V3; there is just slightly different graphics of inside houses and aspects:
https://i.imgur.com/HZUHijQ.png

5) V5 - Experimental variant:
https://i.imgur.com/75VU6hZ.png
(disadvantage - aspects blend with inside planets and it might get messy; advantage - you can see pretty clearly which inside planet is actually aspected)

6) Planet degree markers - Starting points for aspect lines:
https://i.imgur.com/3yBcxC5.png
I also tried to design various variants of "planet markers" - points where aspect lines begins. Which variant M1 / M2 / M3 would suit you the most?

Thanks for your opinions and feedback.

I like number 4 & 5 graphic style. Either one is fine. I´m leaning towards 5 a little more, but I like both. M2 planet markers in image 6 suits me the most. It´s easier to read the chart. Great job! :15: I´m sure we will all be happy with your final decision :1: . Thanks for giving us options :17: :74: :68:

Thank you ladylight :74:

I will most probably keep all styles and registered users will have an option to set their preferred style.

I´m currently gathering opinions/ideas which style could be the most preferred and should be set as "default" if you are a guest user.

Yes, what she said...

What software do you use to generate the charts?
February 13, 2019 at 05:55
(Aries) ram_goat » ladylight
Depending on the software, is dark theme or color invert an option. The usual black text on white background hurts my eyes. I night mode everything, even in the day.

a minor minor point- discussion forums- "actual topics"

I´m guessing "Actual" has a similar meaning to German "Aktuell" in many
European languages. The English usage of "actual" is nuanced in a way
that is very confusing to the way it´s used in almost every other language.
The proper use of "Aktuell" is also a strange thing for English speakers to learn in
German. even though I think the "German" usage is more common in more languages
than the way the word is used in English. The meaning is close but different.

A better replacement for "Actual" (in the English language sense) might be, "latest"
"newest" or "current" or "most recent".

"Actual" in the English sense is more like (German): "gegenwaertig" or "wirklich"
"Aktuell" in the European sense means something more like (English) "latest" or "most current"

Anyway, a small thing in an otherwise great site!

Hi Ram_Goat :1: . I hope all is well. I don´t know much about the softwares used to generate charts. I am still very new to chart reading. I´ve actually learned a lot since joining this site, still learning new stuff everyday. Maybe you should direct that question to Petr9.

>>Maybe you should direct that question to Petr9.

Err.. that was my original intention. I´m sure he´ll see it here at some point.

Hi ram_goat,

thanks for your grammar correction - I just renamed "Actual topics" to "Latest topics" :15:
(yes, you were absolutely right - I meant it in this German/European sense; which is quite different from English sense)

I don´t have this linguistics feelings ... so if you will find any similar issue, please let me know and I will correct it.

Did you try f.lux software? - https://justgetflux.com/

it might help you to adjust/darken the temperature of your monitor.

Btw there are some very simple and easy to use graphic filters which I might use for Astro-Seek charts. If you would be interested, I might add these filters as an option for chart graphics.

For example - Your chart with some filter adjustments:

1) Inverted graphics:

2) Inverted and Black & White graphics:

3) Brown inverted:

Good! :)


I just implemented this V4 + M2 style as a default option for transit chart:
https://horoscopes.astro-seek.com/c…

... and I will slowly start to implement it also to other charts (progressions, solar return, etc...)

Hi Petr,

Thanks for setting V4 combined with M2 as default.
That´s great. :74:

Especially M2 I´m really happy with namely sometimes I like to hide the aspectlines, so I can draw (in paint) only the lines I want to see at that moment.
Now with the little planet markers it´s much easier.

Helas in the radix the little planetmarkers disappear when I click on Hide aspect lines. :43:

that´s something I was actually thinking about - "to hide or not to hide" these planetmarkers once you Hide the aspect lines.

well.. it seems that they should be probably here :))
