Astro Gold for iOS Version 6.1.3

Astro Gold for iOS is an easy to use, accurate and robust astrology program that is ideal for the astrologer on the go. I was impressed with how easily it managed to find my birth city, a task that seems beyond many apps I have tried. I like that you can add locations to the atlas, as I am sure I’m not the only one who was born in a small town with a strange-looking name.

Once you have calculated a chart, you can flip through past or future charts by day, hour, month, or year by clicking the arrows at the top of the chart form. This is an extremely handy option if you need a visual aid to help you show the movements of the planets over time.

The charts are easy to read, scale easily, and can be shared to email, messaging, and social media. The reports, written by Stephanie Johnson, are detailed, and helpful to all levels of experience. Charts can be customized, with multiple choices for style, color, zodiac and house systems. There is an excellent transit report as well as natal reports and charts.

Chart data can be saved to iCloud and can be easily exported into a format compatible with Solar Fire v6 and higher.

Affordable at $39.99 (US), Astro Gold for iOS is an excellent option for beginning astrologers, as well as advanced astrologers looking for a mobile solution.

Negative vs Positive Thoughts

I was thinking today and I didn’t like one of the thoughts I had. Ever had a negative, shallow, or even nasty thought cross your mind, then think … “Why did I think that?” Then go on to judge yourself as a horrible person for having such an awful thought? (laugh) … happens to me all the time. Then I had this one …

Everyone has shallow, negative thoughts. Don’t judge these thoughts. Let the unwelcome thought pass without judgment. The rubber meets the road when we make DECISIONS.

Only the decisions count, in the end.

I decided this would be a good topic to bring up on my blog, and on Facebook and I went to looking for an appropriate image, and I found this wonderful image by John Hain. Check out his illustrations there. Everything on Pixabay is “Creative Commons”.

Colors of the Zodiac

Jupiter Swirls - Astrological Artwork by Brandi Jasmine

Each of the twelve signs of the zodiac has its own set of color correspondences, and like much else in astrology, there are some controversies about what colors are considered standard. There is no single color for each sign, it is usually a range of colors that is used or favored by astrologers. There is a general consensus. In my astrological work, color usually comes up in association with charms and clothing worn or preferred by certain signs, and these are the colors I favor in my astrological artwork:

Aries: Red, orange, fire colors

Taurus: Pink, and earth tones like brown and green

Gemini: Yellow, gold

Cancer: White, grey, silver, cream, light blue

Leo: Gold, yellow, orange, royal blue, purple

Virgo:  Earth tones, tan, olive, mustard yellow, brown and green

Libra: Pastels, pink, baby blue, sapphire blue

Scorpio: Red, black, burgundy, maroon

Sagittarius: Purple, dark blue, indigo

Capricorn: Black, dark brown, dark grey

Aquarius: Caribbean blues, turquoise, aquamarine

Pisces: Sea colors, blue, indigo, green
