8 of the Best Free Linux Astrology Software

8 of the Best Free Linux Astrology Software

Astrology is a set of traditions, beliefs and systems which hold that there is a connection between the movement of heavenly bodies and events that take place on Earth such as human affairs, and personality. Astrologists use the position of the planets to try to predict future events, and to inform the psychological understanding of an individual's psyche.

Up until the 17th century astrology and astronomy were inextricably intertwined. However, it is important to recognise that astronomy and astrology are two very different disciplines. Astronomy is the scientific study of celestial objects and is widely respected in the scientific community, whereas astrology is based on universal, timeless symbolism, it is often regarded as a pseudo-science, and thought of as an art.

This article highlights the best astrology software that runs natively under Linux. There is not a wide selection of software available in this genre, and some popular Linux distributions (e.g. Ubuntu) do not include a single piece of astrology software in their standard repositories. Nevertheless, there are some great astrology applications listed below for anyone who wants to try to improve his or her understanding of themselves or others.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 8 top quality open source astrology applications. Hopefully, there will be something of interest for anyone interested in intuitive perception.

Now, let's explore the 8 astrology applications at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, a screenshot of the software in action, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
