Do It Yourself (DIY) Astrocartography

Do it yourself astrocartography is made possible with suitable software and intensive study.  Understanding the relationships between planetary positions and the houses represented in your natal chart is a prerequisite.  If you wish to experiment or simply get a head start while planning a move the software listed here may be useful.

Please bear in mind that the previous comment about intensive study is very important.  It is less than helpful to convey the impression that you can purchase a software program and simply read the reports.  There are many levels of complexity in truly understanding how to use the software to look at every aspect of relocation.

The situation is similar to studying law or medicine.  You probably would not consider making a legal or medical decision based solely on your own study.  Similarly, when considering a life altering move, it is probably best to consult an expert in the discipline.  Making a decision, that will cost thousands of dollars, to move your household and family should not be made lightly.

DIY Software Suppliers

Solar Maps by Esoteric Technologies - $225.00+ (full v3.0.13)

The latest version is awesome.   It is solely for (serious) astrocartography.   The maps (finally) have top-quality resolution and accuracy.  

You can view a familiar A*C*G-style map of planet-axis conjunctions only, or add in lines for trines, squares, sextiles, semi-squares, bi-quintiles, etc., up to 24 aspects.   If you like planet midpoints, you can see those lines as well, although only in combination with conjunctions. Viewing all 24 aspect lines and midpoint lines would be confusing unless the map area is tiny.  

Plus, you now can see all parans at once--not only individually as before.   Lines for standard planets, Uranian, key asteroids and more are infinitely selectable.   You can zoom in on any area for tight precision.   Full interpretative reports, forecast-lines, world atlas, time zones, Local Space maps, Geodetic, etc. are included.  

You can see your critical Relocated Natal Chart, but not easily, like WinStar's very slick point-n-click RNC auto-display feature.

Solar Fire by Astrolabe - $289.00 (full 6.0v)

This is an excellent general astrology program, not just for making maps.   Yet, it offers good traditional astrocartography capabilities, namely, A*C*G-style quality planet-axis conjunction maps.  

You can also easily see your valuable Relocated Natal Chart (no misleading and annoying pop-up "warning" screen like Solar Maps first displays).   This version is almost rock-solid reliable, but still has a few irritating problems--some of which you will discover if you even slightly misspell a city or country.

Lines for standard planets, Uranian, key asteroids and more are infinitely selectable.   You can zoom in on any area for tight precision.   Full interpretative reports, forecast-lines, world atlas, time zones, Local Space maps, Geodetic, etc. are included.

Kepler by COSMIC PATTERNS - $300.00 (full 7.0v)

This is an excellent general astrology program, not just for making maps.   The astrocartography maps are high quality, even on zoom in.   You get more astrocartography capabilities with Kepler than Solar Fire, but less than Solar Maps. Smaller area maps permit you to see additional lines for trines, squares, sextiles, etc. and midpoints as well.

Lines for standard planets, Uranian, key asteroids and more are infinitely selectable.   You can zoom in on any area for tight precision.   Full interpretative reports, forecast-lines, world atlas, time zones, Local Space maps, Geodetic, etc. are included.

WinStar Plus Pro by MATRIX SOFTWARE - $200.00 (full 2.05v)

This is an excellent general astrology program, not just for making maps.   The astrocartography maps look quite good, but not as nice as the programs above.   While WinStar has very powerful astrology features for charts, forecasts, comparison, etc., it lacks some of the astrocartography options the programs above offer.  

Its best feature is the very useful point-n-click auto-display of your RNC.   On any map, if you click your mouse, you instantly see your critical Relocated Natal Chart for that spot.  Wow!   If you are a serious astrocartographer, this is simply invaluable.   The Local Space maps (showing azimuth lines) are also superior to any other program currently available.

Lines for standard planets, Uranian, key asteroids and more are infinitely selectable.   You can zoom in on any area for tight precision.   Full interpretative reports, forecast-lines, world atlas, time zones, Local Space maps, Geodetic, etc. are included.

Janus by Astrologyware - $149.00 (full 3.0v)

This is an excellent general astrology program, not just for making maps.   Yet, it offers good traditional astrocartography capabilities, namely, A*C*G-style quality planet-axis conjunction maps.   You can also easily see your valuable Relocated Natal Chart (no misleading and annoying pop-up "warning" screen like Solar Maps first displays).

Lines for standard planets, Uranian, key asteroids and more are infinitely selectable.   You can zoom in on any area for tight precision.   Full interpretative reports, forecast-lines, world atlas, time zones, Local Space maps, Geodetic, etc. are included.

Astrolog by Walter D. Pullen - FREE (full 5.41v)

This is excellent general astrology freeware, not just for making maps.   It has limited astrocartography ability, only showing an A*C*G-style world map of your planet-axis conjunctions and some Local Space maps.   However, its other capabilities for charts, forecasts, comparisons, etc. are quite amazing.   The price is hard to beat as well.
