Tetrabyblos Astrology Plugin Introduction

Presenting Tetrabyblos Astrology Plugin for WordPress

Tetrabyblos is an extremely easy WordPress plugin to install and manage, which allows for any cyber user to get his personal astrological chart from your website and, if you wish so, to obtain a first preliminary Interpretation report completely written and controlled by you. The same applies to the Month Transits calendar in time, also with editable reports. This is an innovative and, we like to think, precious and necessary plugin which does not exists as an independent script, on the world market of web services – thus the Word Press format for implementation in order to facilitate its use. The plugin does not relies on third party services or resources. It’s an independent solution. Please read below more about the special features implemented in the Plugin. Now, your users interface is multilingual (not the admin panel). You can watch here the demo, and also some screenshots of the admin panel.

Here is a resumed list of what Tetrabyblos can calculate and do for you and your users:

Features

  • Ecliptic tropical/sidereal longitude of the major celestial bodies/points (Sun to Pluto, Lilith, ascendant. Mid-heaven, moon’s nodes, Syzygy and about 90 major Arabic Parts), about 60 important stars in astrology and the cusps of the houses – both for radix (birth chart) and current transit.
  • Enumerates the Dignities (including Terms and Faces), Elements and Qualities (with percentages) of the planets and the most important aspects between them. Select essential dignities table system between Ptolemy and Dorotheus (or the users can make their own personalized table). Calculate the essential dignities scores (according to the table system chosen).
  • Gives the primary astrological Vedic – Jyotisha – information for that chart: Nakshatram, Yoga, Karana, Thiti, Pada, Rasi, madhya/sandhi houses, and Dasa periods (birth and current). By default, uses the Lahiri Ayanamsa when the tropical chart is requested for mutual comparison of both systems. Coordinates both of the Rasi and the Nakshatra are given, with Pada and house position.
  • Has 13 different House systems at your disposal (like Placidus, Porphyrius, Equal, Regiomontanus, Campanus, Morinus, Koch, Topocentric, etc.)
  • Has 13 different reference Ayanamsas (like Lahiri, Fagan/Bradley, DeLuce, B. V. Raman, etc.).
  • Has a built-in atlas with almost 145500 cities in the world, with historical time zone calculations or manual if you wish so. You can either choose from the atlas, or introduce yourself the geographic coordinates and time zone offset of the place of birth.
  • Draws the graphical chart – with birth and transit, and a zoom function – and the table of aspects along the other sections: main astronomical events connected to the birth (season, moon phases and near eclipse), planets, houses and stars positions, natal aspects, Arabic parts, classical dignities (including mutual receptions and scores), elements and qualities (with percentages), Vedic information, and the written report (automatic or written by the user).
  • Possibility to write and define your own interpretations texts and manage them in the Word Press administration panel giving the visitant the possibility of getting a personal report “on the fly”.
  • Transits reports, giving positions, graphic and interpretations for future dates (chosen in a calendar mode).
  • Ability to hide/show all the above or not, configure at some extent the layout of the sections (like placing side a side the planets and houses table, or place the aspect graphic in the end of the layout, etc.), the colors of the astrological graphical chart and planets, the buttons style, etc.
  • The plugin can be translated internally to any language by the user.
  • Print feature (in beta test phase).
  • Capable of saving and backup the personal texts and/or the settings to files, and import them in a new installation/update for example.
  • Despite all the features, it’s very easy to install and to use!

Quick notice: does your host allows you to install Plugins? – The only requirements to implement and run Tetrabyblos are having an WordPress website and the permission to install Plugins through upload, which is usual in any installation but is not always – unfairly – provided. If your website is hosted, for example, at wordpress.com you cannot install plugins. Also, you cannot have parameters like the “upload size” variable too low on your website. Please refer to our Knowledge Base to see the requirements of the plugin (any custom plugin actually).

What our users are saying…

Author Picture

The chart calculator is excellent. It's very user-friendly and offers a variety of options that you can choose to display depending upon your preferences and your audience. Since I've never installed a plug-in before, the technical side of it was new territory for me. Fortunately, the tech support is outstanding with quick response times, clear instructions and patience with those of us who aren't tech savvy. I highly recommend this astrology plug-in and hope to see more astrology plugins from them in the future.

Tetrabyblos Professional Astrology Plugin – Version’s features evolution & timeline

Added features in version 2.4.0.0 – Latest Version (january 2020)

  • Implementation of a CSS editing mode, using the language of the W3.css javascript library, so the user can define, for example, the appearance of the buttons and tables in the pages, the layout for the output (sections are placed how the user wants), and the colors of the signs, outer ring, planets, etc. of the astrological graphic chart.
  • Backup/Restore settings capability: with this option the user can export his current settings to a json file, and retrieve them later by importing it, so that the options that he wishes to be defined by default in the admin main configuration panel can be restored with just one click.

The admin panel was not yet translated.
  • Insertion of the new glyph of Unfortune or Sickness – along with the Pars Fortuna.
  • Now, the transits page, when called not from the major plugin form, automatically asks for the birth details. So, you can implement a birth chart page, and a transit one only.

Added features in version 1.3

You can, also, always restore the default Max Heindel texts (zipped texts are inside the Documentation zip).
  • Select essential dignities table system between Ptolemy and Dorotheus.
  • Calculate the essential dignities scores (according to the table chosen).
  • Capability of uploading custom images for the signs and planets, to be used in the text reports, with the size you define, if wanted. You can chose not to show any image, show only the ascendant sign customized image, the ascendant and the most dignified body, or all the bodies.

  • Show/hide Vedic report.
  • Max Heindel’s interpretations report as default is included.

Version 1.1, computes the following Basic parameters:

  • Ecliptic tropical/sidereal longitude of the major celestial bodies/points (Sun to Pluto, Lilith, ascendant. Mid-heaven, moon’s nodes and the eight major Arabic Parts), about 60 important stars in astrology and the cusps of the houses – both for radix (birth chart) and current transit.
  • Enumerates the Dignities (including Terms and Faces), Elements and Qualities (with percentages) of the planets and the most important aspects between them.
  • Draws the graphical chart – with birth and transit – and the table of aspects.
  • Gives the primary astrological Vedic – Jyotisha – information for that chart: Nakshatram, Yoga, Karana, Thiti, Pada, Rasi, madhya/sandhi houses, and Dasa periods (birth and current). By default, uses the Lahiri Ayanamsa when the tropical chart is requested for mutual comparison of both systems. Coordinates both of the Rasi and the Nakshatra are given, with Pada and house position.
  • Has 13 different House systems at your disposal (like Placidus, Porphyrius, Equal, Regiomontanus, Campanus, Morinus, Koch, Topocentric, etc.)
  • Has 13 different reference Ayanamsas (like Lahiri, Fagan/Bradley, DeLuce, B. V. Raman, etc.).
  • Has a built-in atlas with almost 145500 cities in the world, with historical time zone calculations or manual if you wish so. You can either choose from the atlas, or introduce yourself the geographic coordinates and time zone offset of the place of birth.
  • Accurate astronomical calculations for the period of about 6000 years (from about 3000 B.C. to 3000 A.C.).
  • Besides these characteristics, you have the possibility of write and define your own interpretations texts and manage them in the Word Press administration panel giving the visitant the possibility of getting a personal report “on the fly”.

Future versions will consolidate primarily the Vedic calculations (mainly regarding the Shadbala, or strength of the planets, which is being carefully tested before release given the complexity and, above all, the variants on the subject). It will also try to include subjects and functionalities like listing accidental dignities, allow paid services (woocommerce integration), PDF chart generation among other interesting features suggested all the time by our current users – these precious ideas are growing! Thanks for the support and feedback.

Clear skies!
