Astrology’s most ancient roots – naked-eye observation of planetary events – is now available at your fingertips!

With the one-click graphics module, Sky Engine shows you in the sky where planets are relative to the horizon and in their current cycles.


Toggle the planets’ positions and watch them make their way through the sky! Sky Engine is also the only astrology software to show brightness along with latitude, speed and declination trends! Every planet is represented by multiple synodic systems from the ancient traditions to contemporary methods.

We’ve built Sky Engine to meet the needs of both the consulting astrologer and researcher. Choose from 4 Search Types:

Search Type

  • NOW – Find every phase in the current cycle of any planet with just 2 clicks.
  • NOW + NEXT – Expand your search to the current + next cycle just as easily.
  • NEXT # – Go even further and find up to the next 99 cycles of phases… you decide how many!
  • DAY PER YEAR – Instantly find every DPY (secondary progressed) phase shift within a lifetime!

Sky Engine finds not only complete cycles of all phases, but empowers you to create your own searches! Select your planet and system. Choose from:

  • Heroic Journey – heliacal work of astrologer Gary P. Caton for all planets and top 4 asteroids.
