NEW: Aspect Line Control
Now you have the ability to display separating aspect lines as
dotted lines. This is a truly excellent feature, both in creating
birth charts, so that you can see which energies are culminating in
this life (i.e. the applying aspect lines) and which are declining
in intensity (the dotted, separating lines.)
But in Solar Fire's superlative animation module, this
feature really shines. Here you can watch -- in a bi-wheel
-- transiting planets move around a natal chart, and now immediately
see when they have passed exact aspect, because the lines become
You also now have the ability to make aspect lines become thicker
when the aspect is closer to exact (i.e. as the orb is smaller).
Several programs already have thick lines for strong aspects and
thin lines for weak aspects, but Solar Fire
offers the most flexibility in determining how thick the lines
should be as the orb tightens.

in a second chart ring—Arabic Parts, Fixed Stars, Asteroids and
