Astrallis is a unique application and the result of fifteen years of research in the field of Primary Directions. This software is aimed to be effective, practical, and precise. Its objective is to provide astrologers with the best tools to unleash the power of prediction, the authentic and positive goal of Astrology.

"The end and aim of all science is the prediction and control of phenomenae." - Jacques Loeb

Primary Directions were the old masters' predictive technique of choice. It is the most ancient, renowned and powerful technique, recognized and used since Ptolemy's time until the modern era. Unfortunately, it was abandoned because "primaries are bothersome to calculate." By the beginning of the twentieth century they were progresively replaced by "a mixed bag of Secondary Directions and zodiacal primaries [...], soon adopted by most Western astrologers, since it was easier and quicker." (Gansten, Martin, Primary Directions, Bournemouth, England: The Wessex Astrologer, Ltd., 2009.).

Astrallis should be used with caution. Predicting is a double-edged sword and has to be wisely managed. It is not the desire or intent of the designers to over-represent Astrallis with unnecessary functions, creating the illusion of better results. Astrology does not need more robotic, computerized interpretations. Astrallis is a tool, and as such it needs a crafted individual to use it right.

Astrallis is designed to give easy access to high quality Primary Directions calculations and to provide the auxiliary tools to identify the times at which each particular direction will be effective, namely: Secondary Directions, Progressions, Solar Returns, Transits and Ingresses. All of them calculated in the same way they were taught by Ptolemy and Placidus. Some of the available techniques used by Astrallis are not found elsewhere (i.e. In Mundo Rapt Parallels rectifications).

In fact,
Astrallis most important feature is the provision of all these predictive techniques in an organized, synchronized way. Each possible event generates a set of Charts, Directions, Progressions, Transits or Ingresses simultaneously and instantaneously. A descriptive, non-exhaustive list of available features follows:
