ANSWERS

01. No MC position with Equal House system...?

It's true that WOW programs do not cater for the Equal House system. This is because the Interpretation facilities would not work with the MC and 10th house cusp being in different places. You can calculate the horoscope in Placidus and write the MC/IC positions in manually if you wish.

02. Some people wonder why transits are shown in the graph apparently long before and long after they have happened?

Look carefully at the graph. When there is just a little bump, and the graph does not peak, the interpretation text is written out anyway, because the transit is in orb.

03. Can I change the orb of a transit...?

No. They are fixed, if you changed the orb, the graphs wouldn't work. (You can change the orb of ordinary aspects.) Each transit planet is assigned a different orb, based on the number of degrees these transits cover from stationary retrograde to stationary direct. (About 10 degrees for Jupiter, 7 degrees for Saturn, 4 degrees for Uranus, and 2½ degrees for Pluto and Neptune)

04. What is the next module, and when is it coming...?

At present there are these modules:

  • Horoscope Interpreter
  • Astrology for Lovers
  • Astrological Calendar
  • The next project is more web-based than software-based. In cooperation with one of Scandinavia's largest media groups we are working on transforming the current World of Wisdom website. The first offering came in 2003 at www.astrowow.com and is a short-term trends module integrated into a calendar for all our web visitors. Later we hope to do something with astrological matching.

05. Can I edit the interpretations...?

Sorry, no. It does not seem to be the literary correct thing to do. Great care went into the texts, and it could upset the balance and complex merging facilities in the program if the text was changed. With programs such as Solar Fire and Matrix there are text editing features.

06. Can I sell the Interpretations...?

You can give away interpretations to friends, family and clients. You have to purchase a license to market World of Wisdom interpretations on a professional basis. Write to support@world-of-wisdom.com for more information.

07. Can I get degree positions written on the horoscope drawing...?

Actually, yes. You can get the degree positions of planets on the print out. Go to the WOW directory, find the 2KB file wow.ini (configuration settings), open it, and add these lines to the wow.ini file:
[Goodies]
PrintPlanetPos=1

... then save and close the file.

08. Can I change the colour of the graphs in the print out...?

If you right click on the graph you can change the colour. This can save you ink if you print out with an ink yet.

It is possible to change the default colour of the transit graph and the aspect meter in the interpretation window. This will also affect the graphs on the printed reports. Add these lines to the wow.ini file:
[Goodies]
GraphColor=-3
