Victor Hernandez Senior editor

The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 7.3
Astrology is the art of interpreting the positions of planets and stars, and their influence in human life. In India such art is based on the Vedas, which are the sacred texts of the Hindu religion.
This program features pre-calculated figures that can be interpreted by an experienced Vedic astrologer, thus saving users a lot of time. You only need to enter your birth data, such as date, place, hour, time zone and so on. The program will show the calculations and different kinds of tables with comprehensive data regarding the position of planets, houses, constellations and other elements. Please note that the program will not tell you your horoscope nor your fortune; it only features the calculations and tables that must be interpreted by a reputable Vedic astrologer. Nevertheless, the program's Help file features a comprehensive introduction to Vedic astrology that can allow you to better understand the subject.
If you are an astrologer or if you want to learn more about Vedic astrology using one of the most ancient and respected astrological systems, then don't miss this program, which is absolutely free.
There is a more recent version available for downloading at the developer's site.

Pros

  • Free.
  • The Help file is very comprehensive.

Cons

  • Very specialized. Not for the casual user.
  • Only Windows-compatible
 

What's new in version 7.5

Changes from 7.5 to 7.51:
(1) When SSS is selected as the siddhanta (planetary model) and some sunrise definitions are selected, JHora 7.5 freezes. This is fixed.
(2) In nakshatra dasas, an option is added to shift dasa lordships by any number of nakshatras. For example, one can start Vimsottari dasa from Ardra (instead of Krittika). Then Ardra (instead of Krittika) will give 6 years of Sun dasa, Punarvasu (instead of Rohini) will give 10 years Moon dasa, Pushyami (instead of Mrigasira) will give 7 years of Mars dasa, and so on. [This is recommended by "Lomasha Samhita" for some charts.]
(3) Vimsottari dasa can now be computed using complete anti-zodiacal reckoning (e.g. Rahu-centric theory).
(4) With the same calculation options, planetary longitudes with 7.5 were off from those with 7.4 by a few arc-sec. Values given by 7.4 were accurate and 7.5 drik siddhanta calculation of planets had a bug. This bug is fixed.
(5) Chara dasa, Yogardha dasa, Trikona dasa, Lagna Kendradi Rasi dasa and AK Kendradi Graha dasa can be calculated in divisional charts now.
(6) When SSS is selected (instead of drik siddhanta), no house division system other than "Equal house - 30 deg each" works in 7.5. It is fixed now and all house division systems will work. [The house system taught in a BPHS version saccording to Sri Vinay Jha is not included yet.]
(7) Option was added to the divisional chart calculation options to find divisional longitudes in D-30 by mapping each one degree in rasi to 30 degrees in D-30 or to map arcs (e.g. 5 deg or 8 deg arc) that go to the same sign in D-30 to 30 degrees *together* in D-30.
(8) Chandra Hari ayanamsa implementation is changed to place Shaula star (Lambda Scorpii) at 240 degrees of the sidereal zodiac. This changes ayanamsa by a few arc-seconds compared to JHora 7.5.
(9) When a midpoint was defined as the user defined special point, it was miscalculated in 7.5. It is fixed now.
