Astrolog on MacOS X

Reading Time : < 1 minute

Hey guys, so I just wanted to update you real quick about what I’m working on right now. I was looking for a very versatile astrology software for transits analysis and I was surprised discovering the potential of Astrolog, a free software developed by Walter D. Pullen.

It is a command line software (old DOS style!) with graphical features. I managed to compile+link it with graphic features for Mac (X11 XQuartz project) and so far it works very well.

I think this is on one hand a very underestimated program. On the other it is also very geeky and not so easy to use—you really need to know what you are doing. But the potential is big!

For example, Astrolog is one of the few astrology software around that can render 3D graphics. I love it, and I think I’m gonna use it for displaying charts on the blog. In the near future I might be able to integrate it on the blog itself with a web page interface!

Have a good week 🙏☀️

Rob

Update: I’ve added a new page in the blog about how to install Astrolog on macOS with X11 graphics

Aside Posts

Hi guys, it’s been a long time.

I’ve started working on my blog again and major changes are coming soon. First of all I want to personally enjoy this blog more. To do that I’ve decided to use WordPress aside posts.

Asides are short posts used as notes, ideas, quick updates and stuff like that. They should have a different style to be immediately recognizable. I am going to use this post as a little experiment, so you might see it styled differently these days as I’m working on it.

I want to leave you with this quote a friend of mine told me: “there is no better key than the will of opening a door” (Hasier Agirre).

Stay tuned! 🙏
