Russian-language free program in Vedic Astrology (Jyotish Grahas 5.0)

Русскоязычная программа по Ведической Астрологии (Джйотиш Grahas 5.0)

This program makes it easy to build Jyotish maps in the time interval from 1625 to 2200 years.

The development of the program uses data, texts and algorithms from the books:

  • Maharshi Parasara "Brihat-Parasara-Chora-Shastram" Volume 1 and 2.
  • James Bracha "Ancient Indian astrology for modern astrologers", Moscow, "Kogelet", 2001.

In calculating the program uses the Swiss Ephemeris.

  • You can customize the Birth Card and other maps with one click on any parameter (time, date and coordinates). And the map will be recalculated.
  • The program allows you to easily (Search by mask) to choose the coordinates of the city from 1087 cities of the CIS. In addition, you can find out how the time (Time Zone, Time Zone) in this city has changed, depending on the date. On the territory of the former USSR, time changed several times.
  • The program builds Fractional maps (Hora, Drekkana, ... Shashtyamsha, only 19 pieces).
  • There is an opportunity to make a rectification of the birth time on the basis of several important events of life.
  • In addition, using the mouse pointer you can get information about any object (Planet, House, Sign, Nakshatra, etc.). His unchanging qualities and qualities that he receives in this position. This applies not only to Rashi Kundali, but also to all fractional maps.
  • The calculation of the lunar days (Tithi) is available with the time of the beginning and the end of the Tithi.
  • Calculation of Dash (Planetary periods up to 5 subperiods).
  • The calculation of the Saturn period in Seven and a half years of "Shani Sade-sati" is realized.
  • It is possible to view 2 horoscopes in one window at the same time, the same calculation of compatibility is implemented by different methods. There you can also consider the Periods (Dashy) of two horoscopes simultaneously.
  • Grahas can save and open Jagannatha Hora files (* .jhd)
  • Properties of Days of the Week.
  • It is possible to save a map of Rashi Kundali or any fractional map into a graphic file (* .bmp). Then you can print the saved files (* .bmp) from any simple and complex graphics program.
  • You can save and load the horoscope and Dasha data in a file.
  • There is a function "Drawing a Card". The menu item "More -> Drawing a Map". In this mode, the program does not calculate the map. Polhovatel himself carries the planets, arudhi and signs (the signs are transferred only to the Lagna) in the houses he needs. And in this way he can simulate the Card himself. There you can also select Fonts to display the planets and everything else. And also there is a mass of sliders and flags moving which you can achieve the necessary location of the elements of the Map. Each slider has a tooltip. You can also save and load the created settings to a file (Pop-up menu on the "Drawing Map" tab). The result of the Drawing Map will be a black and white bmp file, which can be previewed and saved.
  • This function was done specifically to prepare for the publication of the 2 volumes of Brihat-Parasara-Chora-Shastra.
  • Grahas allows you to build graphs of the merits of the planets for different (1-10 years) intervals.
  • You can also plot the merits of the planets individually or in any combination. For example, only Jupiter and Saturn.

And much more ... And everything is in Russian!

Detailed description

Using the tab "Projections of planets around the earth", you can find out:

  • 1. Current position of the planets relative to the horizon, the sides of the world and the points of the ecliptic (Zenith, Nadir, Ascendant, Descendent).
  • 2. The location of the planets at a given time (Signs, Houses and Moon constellations [Nakshatra]).

Moving the mouse pointer over the Planets, Signs, Houses, Nakshatras and special points of the ecliptic; you can get detailed information about the properties of the objects described above.

Using the 'Up-Down' buttons in the 'Date' panel, you can change any Date (Minutes, Minutes, Hours, Days, Months and Years) parameters. After each change, the recalculation will take place with the new Date values, which will be displayed on the screen. Thus, the MANUAL TIME ADJUSTMENT is implemented. After you manually changed any Date parameter, you must click the Refresh button to perform the recalculation.

On the 'Date' panel, the 'Automatic' button is available:

  • 1. When you press it, the program will switch to the 'Automatic' mode. In this case, the recalculation and display will occur each time for the new Date values;
  • 2. The current Date parameter (Second, Minute, Hour, Day, Month or Year) will be incremented by one;
  • 3. To change the current Date parameter, just click on it with the mouse;
  • 4. The recalculation and display period can be selected by right-clicking the 'Automatic' button;
  • 5. The period can be equal to: '0.1 seconds', '1 second' or 'Real time';
  • 6. If the Period corresponds to 'Real Time', the Date values ​​will always be equal to the values ​​set in the operating system.

Using the item in the top menu 'Places Coordinates' you can:

  • 1. Select the coordinates of one or several settlements (Total in the database - data on the coordinates and the transfer of time - 1087 cities);
  • 2. If you select a settlement, you can use the filtering function to simplify the search. To do this, you need to set the search mask.
  • 3. To specify a mask, use the '*' character. For example:
    • a) 'Ak *' - names of settlements starting with 'Ak';
    • b) '* ka' - names of settlements ending in 'ka';
    • c) '* ram *' - names of settlements containing 'frames';
    • !!! To use the mask function, after its setting, press the 'Enter' key.
  • 4. You can edit and save coordinates of settlements, add new coordinates and delete.
  • 5. In addition, you can use the corresponding 'Up' and 'Down' buttons to change the latitude and longitude values. Pressing these buttons will automatically recalculate and display with new latitude and longitude values. Thus, it is possible to carry out a FIT and LONGITUDE FIT.
On the territory of the former USSR, the time zone of different cities changed several times!

The program has a directory containing the geographic coordinates of 1087 cities, as well as changes in the order of calculating time and time zones produced in the territory of the former USSR from 1917 to 1992.

The coordinates of the extended cities were calculated by the geographical center, which explains the difference within a few minutes compared to other sources.

Using the Rectification window (the Top Rectification menu). You can specify the birth time to seconds.

Just want to say that perhaps the following method is not quite classically correct. Because I do not have full information about the procedure. But if you want to try, read on.

To do this, using the pop-up menu, you need to add a few important life events for example:

  • Entry into Marriage
  • Birth of a child
  • Start date
  • Getting Knowledge
  • Divorce
  • Death of Relatives
  • Acquisition of property
  • Loss of property
  • Moving in
  • Disease (accident, operation)
  • Arrangement for work (transition to a new job, start of business)

You must specify the date of each event. And the number of periods (Each period of the planet includes 9 sub-periods of 9 planets, and so on).

Add and delete events using the pop-up menu (the right mouse button on the rectify window).

In this menu are available functions (you can use the shortcut keys):

  • Add Event - Ins
  • Delete Event - Del
  • Add under period - Right
  • Delete for period - Left

For each event there will be counted 3 periods (Dashi):

  • 1. The period before the beginning of the event
  • 2. Period during which an event occurred
  • 3. The next period after the event

Then most manually, you need to change the birth time (in minutes, seconds or hours) and watch while changing the periods of the planets.

Using the mouse pointer, you can get hints for the period on which it is hovered. Obtain information of this kind:

  • 1. What can bring Maha Dasha (the first period) or Antar Dasha (the second under the period)
  • 2. Depending on which house is in or which houses are managed - what to expect from this period

These types of tips can be turned off if necessary (Pop-up menu-> Hints-> Interpretations-> Dashi (Periods of planets)).

You need not tied yourself to see exactly what happened and what could happen on the relevant date.

Using the prompts to evaluate whether the birth time was correctly entered.

That's all. This is an experimental option. I await your feedback on the possible addition of the method.
