is a completely personalized astrology forecasting service. Unlike
the generalized Sun sign forecasts you see in newspapers, magazines
and on many other websites, this service is based entirely on your specific
date, time and place of birth.
does PlanetForecast work?
completing a simple and confidential registration form your birth
chart will be calculated and kept on file. This chart, your natal
chart, is a precise picture of the positions of the Sun, Moon and
planets specific to your time and place of birth. The only way someone
else could possibly have the same chart is if that person was born
at the exact time and place as you.
registration you will be sent a confirmation email along with information
on current astrological patterns. You will continue to receive personalized
email updates 6-12 times a month depending upon the activity in
your astrological chart.
PlanetForecast sends information based on the transits of the
planets Mercury, Venus and Mars.
if I don't know my time of birth?
highest level of detail is derived from a birth chart for the correct
time of birth. However, a close approximation is better than no
time at all. For example, if you know that you were born between
4 and 4:30 pm, you should enter 4:15 pm as this would be no more
than 15 minutes off at the most. If you do not have any idea of
your birth time, you are best off registering with no birth time.
There are many astrological factors that will still work for you,
but PlanetForecast will omit those that only work with an accurate
can I find my birth time?
do not have a copy of your birth certificate, you can usually acquire
one through the records office of the city, state or region in which
you were born. When requesting a copy, make sure you ask for one
with the time of birth. Many U.S. states have two certificates,
one with the time and another without it. In some cases, hospitals
will also still have a copy of the birth record.
approach is to search for information among family members or neighbors
who may remember when you were born. Family records or family bibles
are other possible sources.
can I change my birth time?
can change your birth time, email address or any other information
by going to the
PlanetForecast registration page. Enter your email address and
password, click Submit and you'll be taken to your Edit Personal
Profile page where you can make the change. You can also get there
through the registration page by clicking on "If you're already
registered, click here."
I have any control over the astrological cycles in my life?
While you can't change the timing of the cycles, you do have a great
deal of choice over how you live with them. The more you learn about
yourself the better able you are to wisely use the energies in your
life. If your forecast is about impulsive behavior, this information
can alert you so that you can balance this with thoughtfulness,
as well as allow time for spontaneous activities. Every day and
every moment of life has its purpose and meaning. StarIQ believes
that astrology is a tool to help us make better choices, not to
take away our choices.
are the forecasts created?
forecasts are based on the astrological technique called "transits."
Transits take the planets (including the Sun and Moon) at any given
time and compare them to the positions of the planets in a birth
chart. When significant angles, called aspects, are formed between
planets in the sky and planets in the birth chart these are reported
as meaningful influences.
does it mean when two transits describe conflicting patterns?
possible that one aspect will describe ease while another describes
challenges. It's not uncommon in life that things are going well
at work, but not at home, or vice versa, or that the morning's difficult,
but the afternoon flows smoothly. We also have times when we're
challenged, but find a successful way to overcome it. Sometimes
a day is great except in one area. Your transits will reflect this.
long do the influences described last?
rule of thumb is that the faster a planet moves the quicker its
influence will pass. Transits from the Moon may only last an hour
or two, those of Mercury and Venus up to a couple of days. Mars
transits can work up to 3 or four days. The effects of Jupiter can
easily last a couple of weeks, while those of Saturn endure for
about a month. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto transits often spread out
over months, even years.
may find that you experience some transits a bit early or late.
This is likely to be the result of a combination of patterns in
your birth chart. We encourage you to keep a diary or journal of
your transits over time. This way you'll have a clearer picture
of exactly how they work in your life. You'll also find that as
your understanding of a particular planet grows, that you will be
able to handle its challenges with greater success.
there good days and bad days?
we all have days that are easier or more fun than others. The purpose,
though, is not simply to describe what's good or bad, but to help
you understand the energies of the day so that you can use them
most skillfully. When you understand the patterns of your life you
are able to adjust your plans to maximize opportunities and reduce
frustration. Every day, even a very difficult one, can be rewarding
if you are able to learn from it.
the difference between PlanetIQ and PlanetForecast?
describes the general astrological conditions in effect at a given
time. These are like the weather patterns that affect everyone at
the same time. However, we each have our own transits that describe
individual cycles. For example, it may be raining for everyone today,
but one person is able to enjoy the conditions while another is
not. We are each part of the larger, collective universe, yet have
our own unique angle of perspective and experience, so both are
at work in your life.
I be asked to pay for this service in the future?
will continue to provide free personal astrology services to its
members. In fact, we will enhance these services in the months ahead.
Later this year we will introduce optional services for a fee. However,
you will never be dropped from PlanetForecast as long as you choose
to continue receiving your transit emails.
is StarIQ doing this?
is run by astrologers who believe that understanding our cycles
is healthy and empowering. When we see the patterns in our lives
we can use them in positive ways. We are also reminded that life
is not an accident, but a meaningful experience of growth and discovery.
Astrology is a powerful means to remind us of who we are so that
we live up to our highest potentials. It connects technology with
the human spirit to help make us whole again.
