Introduction


Concept

The AstroAPI provides Western astrological information of a person or event based on (birth)date, (birth)time and (birth)place. Hereby it calculates the position of the astronomical objects (planets, moons, ...) in our solar system in relation to the geographical position on earth at that exact date and time.

From the astronomical information that is gathered by the calculation, the AstroAPI is capable of creating a unique full astrological profile and horoscope for the person or event. A horoscope generated by the AstroAPI is a full astrological profile, meaning it features not only the zodiac signs but also Planets in Signs, Planets in Houses, Transits and much more (more here).

Horoscopes

The AstroAPI provides multiple full horoscopes each with their own usage and meaning.

Horoscope Type Usage
Natal (Birth horoscope) The Natal horoscope calculates a person's unique and personal astrological report based on birthdate, birthplace and birthtime. This is the most widely used horoscope.
Zodiac sign compatibility High-level broad compatibility between 2 zodiac signs (simple report)
Solar Return Yearly Astrological report for the current year based on the recurring exact position of the sun at the moment of a person's birth
Lunar Return Monthly Astrological report for the current moon phase based on the recurring exact position of the moon at the moment of a person's birth
Synastry (Relationship horoscope) Report of the astrological compatibility between 2 persons. This horoscope is calculated by providing 2 sets of birthdata.
Composite (Relationship horoscope) Report of the energy in a relationship between 2 persons. This horoscope is calculated by providing 2 sets of birthdata.

{info} Attentive readers will notice that at first sign Synastry and Composite horoscopes, albeit very different in calculating method, appear very similar. The difference is subtle but crucial for astrological interpretations. In a synastry horoscope the asker of the horoscope has the power to influence and change the relationship. A Composite relationship horoscope just defines the energy levels of the relationship.
