This is what What Watch is doing.
- Natal Charts, including element and quality balances, Moon's phase and various house systems.
- What Watch uses Swiss Ephemeris for calculations. Objects available include
the Luminaries, the planets Mercury to Neptune, the dwarf planets Ceres, Pluto,
Quaoar and Sedna,
the centaurs Chiron, Pholus, Nessus and Asbolus, the Moon's nodes and Lilith.
- What Watch offers a double approach to aspects: standard aspect
lines in the wheel, and a display of aspects in a harmonic aspectarian:
a method derived from working with harmonic charts which is very powerful.
- A table of essential dignities – with classical or modern
rulerships – facilitates working with this classical technique of astrology.
- You can put two charts in synastry. It's done within the standard wheel, so you simply
add synastry in a different color to the chart you're analysing.
- A composite wheel is automatically created as soon as a second chart is calculated.
- What Watch can calculate Davison relationship charts.
- You can easily show any midpoint in the wheels and aspectarians. For
each planet, a midpoint tree is drawn.
- Solar Return and Persona charts are available, as well as the New Moon before birth.
- In a chart, you can drag any planet with the mouse to a different position – the date of the chart is recalculated automatically.
- All charts are printable.
- Charts can be imported or exported using AAF or Quick*Chart formats to facilitate exchange with other astrology software.
- Find exact dates of transit, progression or solar arc cycles. In the
wheel or in the harmonic aspectarian you can find the transits that
currently apply to the natal chart. Then, the transit module allows you to
figure out exactly the rhythm of the transit (or progression or solar arc):
exact date of the transit, stations, sign changes, last and next occurence
of a transit contact between the same planets. This is extremely useful for
slow planets that move several times about a planet's (or house's) place.
- For each transit, What Watch can show the Sabian Symbol of the transiting planet's position.
- With a single click, the full horoscope of a transit's or progression's or solar arc's moment is drawn.
- You can use the transit module on composite and Davison charts, too.
- Work on relocation. Place your chart anywhere on earth, using an interactive 3D globe. Show
where planets are conjunct axes as in Astro*Carto*Graphy.
- You can save important places together with any chart to use them quickly later on.
- To work with event charts is easy as well. Save any chart as an event
with a birth chart. This is how you can a get an easy overview on important
stations in a person's life.
- Search all your charts for any planetary position to answer questions like "Who else has the Moon
- Analyze charts to find about the distribution of planets in elements, qualities, signs, decanates,
degrees and houses.
