Best Astrology Software: Kepler and Sirius

101 ratings | 8480 views
Astrology is a vast subject, different people have very different needs, and there is no one astrology software that is the best for every person. However, the Cosmic Star, Pegasus, Kepler and Sirius programs from Cosmic Patterns Software offer unique features that enable you to advance to more advanced levels of astrology, to explore almost any are of astrology and obtain helpful and useful information in ways that are not possible in other programs. For the beautiful time line format and AstroSignature forecasts, Treasure Maps and the fabulous reference materials like the Asteroids Report, Fixed Stars Report, to the extraordinarily elegant and marvelously easy to use Page Designer to customize any feature of chart wheels, these programs enable you to do things with ease that are difficult or impossible to do in other programs. With over 250 tutorial videos (this is one of them) on an amazingly broad range of astrological topics, you can find answers to your questions, conduct research, build your business, and improve your work in astrology. This software is used and loved by people who are beginners up to astrologers who are the most respected professionals. Cosmic Patterns Software and Matrix Software are two divisions of a larger company, and the synergy that is created between these two branches of the company is accelerating development and advancement of both lines of software. We also have some customers who prefer the Matrix line of software which demonstrates that there never is a one-size-fits-all in astrology software, but astrologers and students of astrology invariably find that the Cosmic Star, Pegasus, Kepler, and Sirius programs offer exciting new breakthroughs that are very practical and useful. The website for Cosmic Patterns Software is www.AstroSoftware.com and the website for Matrix Software is www.AstrologySoftware.com

What do you think about Astrograph software? (Time Passages)
OK, great. Thanks for your interest in our software. There are samples of all of the interpretive reports included in Kepler here: http://astrosoftware.com/cpnew/software/kepler/interpretations.html You will see on the right side of the screen where you can click to see the samples. You will also notice that reports are available in Spanish, French, and other languages. The Pegasus software (much smaller and also less expensive than Kepler) includes the Cosmo Natal, Cosmo Compatibility, and Cosmo Forecast Reports that are in Kepler and I think a few of the others in Kepler but not all of them. Sirius has some additional interpretive reports that are not in Kepler and samples of a famous person are shown here: http://astrosoftware.com/cpnew/software/sirius/interpretations.html Also, if you want to see an interpretation for yourself or someone else many of them can be ordered at www.StarGuidance.com and for the others you can contact Cosmic Patterns Software and ask for one to be run. I am not sure what the fee is for this.

+David Cochrane's Astrology I like the look and depth of your software but the interpretations are hugely important for me. How can I read some of your interpretations for free?
I am one of the developers of the Kepler and Sirius astrology software and I have a policy of not commenting on other commercial software. I think it is more polite and less prone to misunderstanding for me to avoid commenting on the value of commercial astrology software from other companies.

Hi David Ive just got Sirius 3.0 and it looks amazing. Will there be a tutorial on this new update ? I loved the content of this video and participating in baking the planet a better place and many people uniting to make this software possible.

Many thanks david im starting to work through the videos. Sadly living in the Uk I cannot do the official course /accreditation as I believe its only available in the US.
Thank you for getting Sirius 3.0! After you click on "Help" and then "Sirius Manual" the "Overview", "Opening Screen", "Main Window" links etc. provide a great tutorial on how to use the program but perhaps even better are videos like this introduction to Sirius 2.0 because the user interface of 3.0 is basically the same as 2.0: https://youtu.be/Vy0afo8IOH0 Also, all the other videos in the play list at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ilRfh4U5As&list=PL7dB1Eig3ZbKj7ojME7qGTOzQD4rO3DhT are helpful. The newsletter at http://www.astrosoftware.com/NewsletterJune2018.pdf lists and briefly describes the features that were added to Sirius 3.0. I hope this helps.

I've tried different well-known astrology software and all four different software show planets in the different houses, some even in different ACS. with the same DOB and T.O.B.
This problem is usually because of a disagreement about the time zone or observance of daylight saving time. If you provide your birth data and two different Ascendant positions that programs gave I can probably figure out exactly what is happening.

David, you said that Kepler will work on a Mac with the program Crossover in it. I actually have Crossover, Bootcamp and Parallels in my Mac. I'm interested in starting with Kepler but there are also some independent report software in Winstar that I might also like, such as the Jupiter Report and the Past Life report. Do you know if those can run on a Mac as well?
OK, excellent! Thank you for the purchase! I forgot to mention that there are some WinStar add-ons included with Sirius 3 and these won't run in CrossOver, but virtually all of what is in these add-ons is in the main program anyway and we include them mostly for WinStar owners who are accustomed to them and still use them so they can use them within Sirius. Sorry for neglecting to mention this. We just released Siirus 3 recently and I need to remember to mention this. In case you decide you do want to use these Matrix modules included with Sirius 3 or you decide to get Matrix reports in the future, you can also go into Parallels and see if Windows is already there. Very often when people purchase Parallels they purchase a package deal that includes Windows as well, and perhaps this is something you got at one point or even when you purchased the Mac and Windows is already there too.

David.. Yesterday I went all out and decided to get Sirius 3.0, which I'm using on Crossover. It works great. I prefer my Mac system anyhow. I had just been curious about Winstar. I don't even know how I got Parallels in my computer. I've never used it. It's good to know that WinStar won't work on Crossover. If I decide to get any of their side reports in the future, I'll need to add windows. Thank you.
First, let me clarify one little detail about Parallels: with Parallels you must also install Windows. It is a two-step procedure and you must purchase 2 things: first you install Parallels and then you must install the Windows operating system. In order to run Windows programs with Parallels you must also install Windows and I want to be certain that you have also installed Windows as well as Parallels. If you have not also installed Windows, then Parallels by itself will not run any Windows programs. If you have Parallels and Windows installed on your computer then you do not need CrossOver because Parallels+Windows runs all Windows programs and if you have Parallels and Windows installed you can run WinStar and any other Windows programs. The advantage of CrossOver is that Windows is not needed. With CrossOver installed the software runs as a native Mac program. The disadvantage of CrossOver is that only some programs run it. Kepler and Sirius run in CrossOver but WinStar does not. Again, if you have Parallels and Windows installed, then there is no reason to have CrossOver. You can just install all Windows programs in Windows.

Hello, would this run on a Mac with windows installed without having to purchase the Crossover hardware?
You are welcome. Awesome. Thanks!
T. Magdalena (10 months ago)
David Cochrane thank you for your response! I will be purchasing Kepler soon✨
Yes. If you already have Windows installed on your Mac, then do NOT purchase CrossOver because you do not need it. If you do not have Windows installed on your Mac, then most people prefer CrossOver because (1) Kepler, Sirius, and Pegasus run as native Mac programs with CrossOver and there is no need for Windows and most people prefer not to put Windows on their Mac computer if they do not need to. BTW, CrossOver is not hardware. It is just software. It may sound miraculous that there is software that enables some Windows programs to run as native Mac programs but it is true.

How far back in time does the software go?
Kepler and Sirius calculate charts from 5400 BC to 5400 AD. Future versions will be able to calculate from 13,200 BC to 16,800 AD. However, some asteroids are not very accurate more than a few hundred years from now and planet calculations are less accurate especially more than a few thousand years from now.

@David Cochrane -- which do you recommend for Mac OS?
Pegasus, Kepler, and Sirius run on Mac OS with the program CrossOver Mac. Even many people who are very experienced computer users are unfamiliar with CrossOver Mac but it is amazingly fantastic software. CrossOver Mac runs SOME Windows programs as native Mac programs. That can sound unbelievable but it is true. CrossOver Mac does NOT put Windows on your computer. The two negatives about CrossOver Mac are (1) that you have to spend an additional $60 for CrossOver Mac and (2) CrossOver Mac works only with some programs. We designed Pegasus, Kepler, and Sirius to use only the fundamental Windows functions and to avoid using anything that interferes with opportunities for migration to other platforms so they run properly on a Mac with CrossOver. So because I think these programs are the best (and am a bit biased because I am one of the developers) I recommend CrossOver Mac and one of these programs depending on which level and price fits your situation best.

David, can Kepler or any of the paid software be used in monetized YouTube videos? Thanks!
Sorry, I just saw this question 9 months after you asked. The only data that I can think of is data of alcoholics and also data on introversion-extraversion but these are psychological and not medical. There is not a large database of medical research data in Kepler. I would love to add this some day. It would be wonderful to have hundreds of cases of diabetes, cancer, etc. and better yet to have hundreds of cases of specific diagnoses like cancer of a particular part of the body, etc.
Mony Becerra (1 year ago)
David Cochrane thanks so much for your prompt response. I truly appreciate it. I have one more question. Do you have any medical research data included in Kepler? Thanks again, David! :)
Mony, thank you for asking. This is very thoughtful of you. You can use Kepler and any of the paid software in monetized YouTube videos as long as the content of the video is teaching astrology or interpreting charts. Some people have posted videos which demonstrate the features of the software, and our investigations into what they are doing indicates that this is a way for them to promote illegal sales of the software. Fortunately the good people at youtube are very helpful in getting these videos taken down and it violates the regulations of youtube. The bottom line is that you can use the software in monetized videos, you can give out or sell the interpretations, and use the software for your own use to do what you want to do in astrology. The only thing that is illegal is giving away or selling copies of the software or doing presentations that serve no purpose other than to attract people to get illegal copies of the software. My view is that you paid for the software and you should be able to use it for what you want to do in astrology as long as you are not sharing the software with others. If anything is unclear, let me know. Thanks!

gibt's Kepler auf Deutsch, wie kann ich kaufen?
El Sa (1 year ago)
Sorry, Kepler is only in English. (There are interpretive reports provided in in different languages but the program is in English). Google translation: Kepler ist nur auf Englisch. (Es gibt interpretative Berichte in verschiedenen Sprachen, aber das Programm ist in Englisch).

Another great video. How can I find out more about the Avalon lessons that come with Sirius.
There are 2 example lessons of the 47 lessons here: http://www.astrosoftware.com/cpnew/software/kepler/learning.html That will help give a little bit of an idea. That's all the information I have on this feature of Kepler and Sirius.

How can I get a hold of you?
You can go to www.AstroSoftware.com and send an email to the customer support email address and ask that it be forwarded to me.

How do you compare "astrofire" to the above? Is there value in equal house system in your opinion? Thank you, very informative video.
You are welcome. I am one of the owners and one of the programmers of the Cosmic Star, Pegasus, Kepler, and Sirius programs. I think it is not polite for me to go into detail in comparing my software with the software from other companies. On the other hand, some of the so-called reviewers of software are more narrow-minded and biased in their opinions (sometimes in favor of my software and sometimes against it) than even an owner of one of the companies like myself. I think that the best thing to do is to get information from the companies about their software and after comparing the information it will become clear. For more information about the Kepler and Sirius programs I recommend watching the first videos at youube.com/c/DavidCochrane100 that demonstrate the user interface and basic functioning of the program, and for other companies watch their tutorials or demo programs or whatever they offer to learn about it to get a very good feeling for what program is actually like. You can also email or call for more information and of course visit the company websites. I don't know of a more efficient way to make a good informed decision. Feedback from a good number of people who are users of the software of course can also be helpful.
