Jean-François Faccin has been a developer of Astrology programs since 1988. The quality of his programs comes from his great experience, forged in a great part through thousands of consultations.
The Orion-Astro range is composed of 3 software programs:
You can at any moment pass on to a superior version just by paying just the difference in price. Each version is unlocked by introducing a code that activates its functions.
In the 17th century, any astrologer such as the celebrated William Lilly, passed almost three months in order to calculate progression charts, and this for each child of families of nobles! Today, in a matter of seconds, the same work can be performed, and this with a precision that was impossible at that time. All astrology programs can calculate correctly; however, a program such as Orion-Astro goes much further, and proposes much more information, which allows you to go directly to the heart of the subject: the interpretation of a chart.
The basic program; this allows one to mount birth charts, solar and lunar returns, secondary progressions and transits. One can modify the settings but there are restrictions. For those who wish to avoid headaches, it does not treat comparisons between charts (synastries).
This version is equivalent to Andromede, the famous software program by the same author. Brought out in 2004, Andomede has lived its life and has now been admirably replaced by Orion-Astro. With hundreds of calculations, numerous options and tools, it allows one to go far in the interpretations.
Professional software, with a license for commercial exploitation of this software, Orion-Astro Maestro concentrates on tools and settings unlike any other such programs. It is simple because it is intuitive and complete because it allows one to modify things such as the design of the charts. There are tens of pages of interpretations per chart.
Astro-Orion range does not just calculate planetary positions and display the chart. It does not merely describe a planet in a sign and in a house. The software analyses and allows one to inform the individual on the strengths and weaknesses, analyzing thousands of planetary parameters, by way of Indian and Western astrology when needed. In a clear and unambiguous way, one gains up to ten hours of work time in the analysis. The astrologer has only to deal with the interpretation, drawing the necessary information from where it is needed. He has only the most interesting things to do. With lists of aspects, rulerships, evaluation of global forces one can understand a chart in a minimum of time. Beginners will be supported by written interpretations and different angles to approach a chart. The experience in consultations has allowed unique analyses which are especially relevant.
IIt is not necessary to be a software genius to be able to use Orion-Astro. The range of programs has been designed for their users. The database regroups almost 500,000 towns and has automatic time zones. The program allows one to calculate any chart from 5400 BC to 5400 AD.
This does not stop one from modifying the settings as one may wish to. While being a powerful tool for Indian astrology with its square charts, it is equally extraordinary in classical Western astrology. Some perform Renaissance astrology using the Standard and Maestro versions, as done in past times. Orion-Astro programs are designed for their users, to allow them to obtain exactly what they want.
Even those who know nothing about astrology are not penalised. For certain, they would not employ all of the functions, but they will easily be able to read the interpretations.
Powerful analytical tools allow a realistic interpretation of an individual, avoiding banalities - often more theoretical than realistic of other competing software. The interpretation describes what differentiates someone from others in his life and not mere interpretations of signs. The Indian method of charts of divisions is widely sought, simply because this technique depicts the truth.
The charts are dynamic and this is not a gimmick! These charts react to the mouse. We can thus obtain information by passing over a planet, clicking or dragging a planet towards a sign, house or another planet. The right click of the mouse is very useful for many operations. Very intuitive, the interface allows one to navigate easily between charts. There are many aids and tooltips are used to navigate within the software.
