Chart Events

The Charts Events functionality allows you to combine lists of events for your charts. There are 3 types of events:

  1. Predictive/Forecast Charts (such as Returns, Progressions, Vedic Progressions, Solar Arcs, Persian Directions, etc)
  2. Predictive hits (such as transits, primary directions, time lord period start dates and so on).
  3. Custom events (user-defined events, typically life events such as marriage, birth of the first child and similar).
