Skylendar – modern design astrology software

Skylendar is a modern design astrology software, designed for the KDE 3.x desktop environment.

It includes a modern interface, a powerful data/restrictions sets management, drag’n’drop, multi-windows, animation and a SQL database searching/loading/saving interface. Skylendar is built upon the Swiss Ephemeris library (sweph), which uses precomputed ephemeris files.

It is the successor of KAstrolog 5.4, a KDE port of the famous W.D. Pullen’s Astrolog.

The Skylendar main window is basically divided into two vertical parts: an icon tree for the data/restrictions sets, subchart management, and a workspace where all the graphical charts are displayed.

The code is fairly portable and has a modern design and interface.

Features include:

    • Wheel Chart, displays up to 4 concentric rings.
    • Standard List Chart, displays a text list of objects positions and speeds, aspects and mid-points tables.
    • Simple or Dual Aspects Scan List Chart, displays a textlist of the current towards natal or mutual aspects occurring during a given time span.
    • Uses the high precision Swiss Ephemeris Library for computation.
    • Numerous planets, virtual planets, exotic objects, stars, aspects, and ayanamsa computing methods.
    • Numerous parameters managed, such as orbs, orbs additions, aspects colors, etc…
    • PostgreSQL interface for storing/retrieving the personal data and restrictions sets.
    • Single, transiting, progressed, directed, added and multiplied subcharts.
    • Aspects table below the wheel chart.
    • Animation.
    • Printing.
    • True multitasking chart computation.
    • AAF and Astrolog/KAstrolog files can be converted in SKIF files.
    • Save charts in SVG format.
    • Local Horizon Chart.
    • Objects List Chart.
    • Aspects Table Chart.
    • Ephemeris Chart – the Ephemeris list displays a list of 10 planetary positions computed every day at midnight, ZeroGMT.
    • Batch Chart – displays an aspects list like in the Standart Text List Chart, but instead of computing the aspects between one master and one slave ring, the user will give a SQL condition (after the SQL WHERE clause), so that all the data sets that match this condition will temporarily replace the current master, and the aspects with the slave ring will be calculated and displayed.
    • Exotic objects such as Vulcan, Proserpine, etc.
