Election Charts and Dynamic Transits

Election Charts

The Election Charts tool is designed to search for the best time for an event.

Searching based on Time:

To calculate the chart for the current time and default location, simply click on the Calculate button.

If you change any of the date fields or the time, the chart will be re-calculated automatically. You can click on any of the date or time controls and use arrow keys to keep changing the time dynamically.

You can also change the location by specifying new Country, City, geographical coordinates, Time Zone, and so on.

Searching for Date and Time based on House Cusps positions:
  1. In the House Cusps section, select the House System.
  2. Then, set the house cusp you want to use as the determining factor. ASC will be used be default.
  3. Use the In Zodiac field to enter the position of the house cusp you are searching for.
  4. Click the Use House Cusp button. The chart will be recalculated to bring the requested house cusp to the specified position as close as possible. After that if the position is not exact, you can adjust the time manually by changing values of the Mins (minutes) field.

Electional Charts are always calculated using Geocentric coordinates and Tropical Zodiac.

Note: the Essential Dignities table will only display weighting values based on Essential Dignities, Accidental Dignities are not taken into consideration.
