There are two views on determining the position of lunar nodes: true positions and mean ones. The true values of the nodes reflect their actual nature of movement, in contrast to the mean ones, where the speed of movement is always taken as constant and negative (retrograde movement). By default, the program on this site uses the true values.
In JMC Calculator the calculations of Vimshottari and Yogini dasas are based on the length of the year equal to the mean sideral solar year = 365.256364 days. This, however, can be changed in the settings.
Make sure this meaning is the same in the astrological software you compare the result with.
There are several versions / schools / paramparas as to what the deities are called in divisional charts and which amsa they govern. JMC Calculator uses deities given in the «Brihat-Parasara-Hora-Shastra».
There are several reasons why the results may vary:
The Shadbala calculation in JMC Calculator is carried out according to the principles set forth in «Maan Sagari». Other programs may be based on other references, such as «Brihat-Parasara-Hora-Shastra».
Some of the Shadbala components such as Ayana bala and Cheshta bala, are calculated using simplified formulas, where the error is considered acceptable.
Astrological program settings may vary. For example, this refers to the definition of planetary war and the state of beneficence of mutable grahas (Moon / Mercury).
In Panchang, the beginning and end times of Tithi, Nakshatra, Karana and Nitya Yoga are indicated through the tilde sign (~), which means an approximate value. The error is up to one hour. This applies only to the time interval, however, the map for a specific date and time will always show the correct Tithi.
The error in calculating the interval is associated with the uneven angular velocity of the Moon.
There are two levels of definition of planetary friendliness and enmity: permanent relationship and temporary relationship. The program on this site summarizes the relationship and shows the result. For example, Neutral + Enemy = Enemy; Friend + Friend = Good Friend; Friend + Enemy = Neutral, etc.
There are several options for calculating Arudhas. By default, the program uses the method of calculating arudhas according to K.N. Rao (no exceptions). You can change it to your preferred option in the settings.
The period of seven and a half years is a average one and is subject to change. The speed of movement of the planets is uneven: in some signs, Saturn can linger a little longer, in others a little less.
In addition, depending on how Sade-Sati is calculated, its duration and start / end times also vary. Possible settings are as follows:
Saturn passes through the 12th, 1st and 2nd houses from the natal Moon (default);
Saturn passes through the interaplu from -45° to + 45° from the natal Moon.
In horoscopes, where the place of birth is located beyond the polar circle (more than 66° 33′ in latitude), the ascendant (Lagna) may not follow a sequential order. This is not a program error, but the peculiarities of the astroprocessor calculations.
Unfortunatelly, no, and it is not planned to. It is believed that it is much more useful to refer to calculations based on direct observation of the sky (Drik-siddhanta). In addition, sage Parasara initially recommended this method to us, and not to experiment with approximate formulas.
Parametric search works only with horoscoped indexed by the system. By default, when you create a new account, indexing of charts is not automatically turned on. To enable it, tick «Index my charts for parametric search» checkbox in your account settings. Horoscopes will be available for searching within an hour.
For all settlements from October 15, 1582, it is necessary to put on the Gregorian calendar. If you choose a horoscope for a person born in the Russian Empire (before January 24, 1918), then you need to translate from the "old style" into the "new style", that is, from Julian to Gregorian.
If you want to import a horoscope from Jagannatha Hora, then this horoscope must be with a date not earlier than October 15, 1482 and already converted to the Gregorian calendar.
There is no such function as «a complete transcript» in the program on this site. And most likely you will not find it anywhere. There are only interpretations from some modern Jyotish books and classical treatises. All of them can be accessed by clicking on certain elements in the information table or in the chart. Also, there are descriptions of yogas on the «Yogas» tab.
First, none of the rectification techniques work 100%. The results of the program should be analyzed holistically, comparing them with rectification by events as well as analyzing the appearance of the native, his/her character, Ayurvedic constitution and other distinctive features.
Secondly, almost every mathematical (formal) rectification technique has more than one variation of computation and / or interpretation. Please, refer with reputable sources for more details on rectificarion process.
The horoscope calculator on this site displays the names used in Jyotish in Sanskrit by default. For those who have an account on this web site, the display language can be changed in the settings on the «For display» tab.
The definition of planetary war (graha-yudha) is ambiguous in various programs and paramparas. The program on this site uses an integrated approach to the definition of planetary war, which takes into account the following factors:
Latitude (not longitude!)
Strength by relationship (sambandha)
Power by position in Rashi (graha loses power if it is debilitated)
You can change the setting so that the program determines the winner based on longitude only (the most popular method).
If you need to know the quantitative value of the auspiciousness of the moment (percentage), then this is available in the Emerald subscription only. Everything else is available in the Amber subscription.
This limitation exists for the purpose of the uniqueness of each project participant and differentiation when communicating on JMC Forum. If you want to change your name, please create a support ticket.
You can switch from Amber tier to Emerald at any time by paying the difference between the cost of tiers + paying at least one month of subscription under the new tier. On the payment page, select «Emerald subscription for a month». After payment, your tariff plan will change and the subscription expiration date will be +1 month from the current value.
You can switch from Emerald tier to Amber after the current subscription expires (free of charge).
When you purchase the «Subscription + Diary» service package, 360 days of the diary are added to your balance. After creating the diary, you will see the «Renew» button. When you click on it, the system will automatically suggest using the internal balance.
You can use either the entire balance or a part, depending on your own needs. This is especially true if you want to create a diary not only for yourself, but also for other family members.
Unfortunately, there is no service for changing the subscription tier. In order to change it, you need to renew the subscription for at least another month.
If you paid for the Amber subscription for a year, and then want to upgrade to Emerald one, then the surcharge will be calculated using the formula: difference in days * difference in prices / nominal duration
It is not possible to delete your account completely, but you can deactivate it. To do this, open the settings page and at the bottom click on the «Deactivate account» button.
If you want to delete your horoscopes, please delete them yourself before deactivating your account. Public horoscopes published by you, as well as discussions and messages on JMC Firum, cannot be deleted, since they are a part of the history of the project.
We recommend that you purchase a virtual gift card. It is possible to buy cards with a nominal value of 500, 1000 and 2000 rubles. You can sign your gift card and send the link to your friend.
