Janus 5 – Customizing Interpretations

Astrology House has just released version 5 of their Janus astrology software. I’m still working on a more complete review, but it’s fair to say that Janus is reasonably priced and offers a set of features that is both broad and deep. It’s also easy to use.

To prove the latter point, I’m going to demonstrate how to customize the chart interpretations in Janus 5. No other astrology software makes this task so easy.

Janus comes with a very complete set of interpretations. For example, the aspect interpretations go beyond conjunctions, oppositions, trines, squares, and sextiles. It also includes semisquares, sesquiquadrates, and inconjuncts. There are interpretations for natal charts,  transits/progressions/directions, relocation, and synastry. You can even change the text for the pop-up interpretations.

How Do You Do That?

I was chatting about software reviews with David Cochrane, an owner of Cosmic Patterns Software and the software engineer behind Pegasus, Kepler, and Sirius.

My goal is to produce the best reviews of astrology software available anywhere. Producing those reviews has proven VERY time-intensive. While I work up PDF and video reviews, David suggests a series of “How Do You Do That?” videos that focus on really neat features from different astrology software packages.

I’m kicking off the new YouTube channel for New Age Astrologer, “How Do You Do That?”,  with a video walk-through of the Drag and Drop functionality of Alphee Lavoies’ StarTrax Millenium software.
