News  Pioneering in Hellenistic & Traditional Astrology Software since 1997
7-19-2016 Robert Schmidt has identified the founder of Greek / Hellenistic astrology as Eudoxus of Knidos! This would push the founding era back about 200 years. There will be forthcoming a series of arguments to prove the case that Greek / Hellenistic Astrology originated circa 370 BCE picking up from the Babylonian era.
6-25-2016 The Windows version of Delphic Oracle 9 XPF is planned for release on July 31, 2016 (at least as a beta). The Mac version still needs file configuration and more testing. If you were planning on buying, now's the time to do it while it's still on sale. Version 8 and 9 will use the same registrations which means it's a free upgrade!
3-24-2016 A new article on the Presidential Election has been posted describing the charts of Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in great detail using primarily Hellenistic astrological techniques. Also a video has been posted about the political career of Bernie Sanders.
3-15-2016 A new article on Primary Directions has been posted describing the options in Delphic Oracle in much more detail. It's also included on the Delphic Oracle software page in the primary directions section.
3-8-2016 Terran Atlas 2.0.30 for Mac OSX has been released! The Terran Atlas now runs natively on Mac OSX as well as Windows and no longer needs VMWare or any other emulaton software. The Mac version is set up as a package which you unzip and install to the /Applications/ folder. Registered users can login to the upgrades page to download.
2-26-2016 Zodiacal Releasing 2.0 for Mac OSX has been released. This is primarily a test of the PAServer and deployment through my programming environment of software I wrote in 1997 which was released on windows a long time ago. But you can get the installation for Mac OSX on the software download page.
2-2-2016 A new responsive web design for mobile users is in the works. Delphic Oracle 9 XPF graphic routines are nearly finished and will soon enter the testing phase. Until release, new and currently registered users of version 8+ will receive free upgrades to Delphic Oracle XPF. This new version has HD graphics with gradients, alphablending, enhanced multi-dimensional astrocartography (TerraChron), etc...
10-17-2015 New Windows 10 Styles have been added to Delphic Oracle. Registered users can download updated software on the upgrade page.
9-9-2013 Chris Brennan recently finished a workshop in Hellenistic astrology in Texas and has a class on interpreting time lords posted on his astrology blog. He is also managing a translation project for Hellenistic astrology. His Course in Hellenistic astrology will help you with many of the techniques in Delphic Oracle.
2-28-2011 The mysteries are encoded here using a composition style that hides secrets in plain sight. Take Exit 30 and pay close attention to detail. If you become lost, there is astrological software to guide you.
Updated  Software Title and Description

smoky quartz style Delphic Oracle tm v 8.1 software is based upon the translations of historical astrological texts from the Hellenistic era through Medieval, Renaissance and up to the early Modern era and includes various techniques from such ancient authors as Vettius Valens, Antiochus, Hephastio, Dorotheus, Porphyry, Rhetorius, Critodemus, Firmicus Maternus, Ptolemy, Masha-Allah, Ibn Ezra, Bonatti, Regiomontanus, Lilly, Placidus and many others. The author (Curtis Manwaring) has worked with scholars in the field such as Robert Schmidt (read Schmidt's endorsement), Benjamin Dykes, PhD and others to develop software that is true to the intents of the original astrologers of antiquity for the past 18 years and was involved in the Hellenistic field from the beginning of the translation effort known as Project Hindsight. Hank Friedman writing for the Mountain Astrologer has called Delphic Oracle "the gold standard of Traditional Astrology programs, far and away more powerful and better designed than any other software." Special attention has been paid to usability (see GUI Styles tm and Time Wheels tm) to bring together the different areas of the program with the use of live data which is entirely unique in the field of astrology software. Once a chart has been set up, the program derives data based upon defaults to set up transits, progressions and of course the many time lord systems including primary directions. Further examination can be done almost entirely with clicks on various graphs, time lord sequences and about 30 other examination windows (or panes since there is extensive docking support). This is possible because defaults are registered by your usage habits and the program "remembers" your selections.

Timaeus in system trayTimaeus tm v 9.1 Pro horary and electional software is a system tray application that runs in the background and shows the passage of the planetary hours and the current rising sign as tray icons that change over time according to astrological conditions. It is like having an "astrological weather forecast" on a continual basis. Timaeus also alerts you with user defined sounds when the alerts you set are triggered or a planetary hour changes. These alerts can be set for planetary positions at a given degree or for when a given planet crosses the horizon and meridian angles. Typically these are most useful in horary astrology (for the judging of questions) and electional astrology (for selecting the right time to do something important). Timaeus is also capable of monitoring natal charts, finding transits and various types of progressions to natal positions and gives interpretations in what could be called an advanced daily horoscope. When you hover the mouse over the icons, a popup hint appears showing the current hour lord, time elapsed and time remaining in minutes, and the ascendant and midheaven degrees. Timaeus not only runs in the background, but you can bring it into the foreground by double clicking (or right clicking for a context menu) which will by default show the transiting chart for the moment set for your current location on the Monitor tab. From there you can compare natal to transits, various progression types, run the graphic ephemeris, rectify the chart, animate transits and progressions, print chart wheels and generate Acrobat reports for various chart analyses...

Terran Atlas screen shotTerran Atlas tm v 2.0 time zone database now has over 13 million records of city, latitude and longitude information for 250 countries, making it the largest database in the field. It has taken a step in the direction of Google Maps by differentiating between places of different types. You can still type in the name of a city such as "San Francisco, California" or if you aren't sure of the spelling you can place an asterisk in the place name; but place names can be of mountains, lakes, schools, streams, deserts, forests, post offices, hotels, restaurants, churches, parks, dams, hospitals, cemeteries and so on. There are about 700 of these location type definitions included in the Terran Atlas. In the rare event that you can't find your location in the database, you can add it to the database, edit locations and delete as well. The Terran Atlas is a combination of 3 databases; the Geonames database, the Maxmind database and a personal database which I have been working on, all edited to fit the same format. There is a fair amount of overlap between these databases, so the actual number of unique locations is probably in the range of 8 - 10 million. The reason for this is that some locations go by different names or have different spellings for the same location. Even special characters such as the umlaut are included in these spellings. What makes this database unique is the combination of locations and time zone information which can be used for astronomical purposes...
