Free Jyotish Horoscope Software

By Kshitij Sharma, July 22, 2008

Upon purchase of one year subscription of Express Star Teller, the subscriber is asked for relevant details of date, time and place of birth. This information is used to generate a varshaphal and predictions are made using a commercially available software – Parashara’s Light 6.0. From the printout, it looks like a computer generated report and a lot of manual effort does not seem to have gone in. Parashara’s Light 6.0 is available for a price from GeoVision Software Inc. and you can find the details here.

When I am at home and an Internet connection is not available, I sometimes use Jagannath Hora software to generate horoscopes, which I have installed it on my PC. While you get prepared to download a software, please download the full version, which is about 56MB. It is a pretty good software considering it is free.

Still, the free jyotish kundali software on this site will give you most of the information required to make predictions. It gives longitudes of the planets, rashi, bhava and divisional chart placements, nakshatras and vimshottari dashas. Since it is a java application that needs to run in a browser, there is definitely a constraint on size of screen and the application itself.

In any case, any software on astrology whether free or not, is not the end by itself. It is just a means to an end. Please do not get bogged down by the amount of information provided by such softwares. Most astrologers look at just some of the parameters. They rely a lot on their intuition, judgement of the situation at hand and most importantly, plain common sense. Advanced calculations are used just as an aid to reinforce the intuition.

    Just some advice for JHora users:

    1. There are some default settings like “True Nodes” and “Mean Nodes” which will show Rahu-Ketu in different houses. So, if you are looking to verify charts and some things don’t match, then just don’t say it (or the chart given by JHora) is wrong.

    2. Lahiri is the default, but some parts of South India use an ayanamsa closer to Raman. So, planetary longitudes will be slight different, and your navamsa pattern may change.

    3. Tamilians tend to use a “vakya” panchanga where planetary motions are determined by certain sutras (aphorisms). The positions of planets cast by using a vakya panchanga may differ from those indicated by JHora which is “drik ganitha” panchanga.

    The computer merely generates an output based on your input. Ensure the data you enter is as accurate as you can get (GIGO). The software merely takes the grunt work and human mathematical errors out of horoscope casting.

    Dear Sir:

    The kundali software is not accepting the Thiruvallur longitude which is between 79°15′ and 80°20′Eastern Longitude.

    Does time of sunrise has any significance when it comes to cassting a lagna chart?

    Ex: Will the lagna kundali of a person born with sunrise as 5:50 will be different when compared to person born at sunrise 6:20
