JigSaw Version 2.1 - Tutorial Version
Astrology Software developed by Esoteric Technologies
creators of Solar Fire

JigSaw version 2.1
is a powerful astrological program which allows you to rectify charts using the times of known events in a subject's life - with remarkable speed and ease; to examine the astrological dynamics of families and groups to discover their karmic and developmental themes; and to research virtually any subject or pattern to determine which are the significant astrological factors which influence it. Version 2.1 also includes the unique Group Astro Dynamics report by Bernadette Brady as well as automatic rectification! Very fast!

The new version of JigSaw includes more than five hours of tutorials by Bernadette Brady, plus a Built-in Full ACS Atlas and the latest Swiss Ephemeris files.


JigSaw Version 2.1 is divided into three sections:

  • Family Patterns

  • Rectification

  • Research

Each section is composed of a distinct and different set of tools created for examining the astrological relationships between people and life. JigSaw version 2.1 is bigger and better than ever. The features of version 1 have been expanded and automated to increase both the accessibility to beginners and the scope for professional astrologers.



Family Patterns
You will be absolutely amazed at the new automated Group Astro Dynamics report in the family patterns section of JigSaw.

This unique profile report unveils the psychological dynamics in your family or any group. With the help of JigSaw version 2.1 you can produce a report of up to 10 pages at the click of a button consisting of:

  • house and sign emphasis in any group of 3 or more people

  • the prominent harmonic and midpoint patterns, complete with an analysis of any vacant points

  • interpretations text written by world-renown astrologer Bernadette Brady revealing the patterns of the group

This Group Astro Dynamics profile is unique to JigSaw version 2.1a world premiere. The profile report is based on the work of internationally-acclaimed astrologer Bernadette Brady. With ease you will be able to find out about groups of individuals and how different individuals interlink with the group dynamic.

The Family Patterns section also enables you to manually search for patterns within groups of charts. Once you have found your pattern you can click on the delineate button and produce your own profile report with interpretations. It's that easy!

Family Patterns is an exciting way of doing multi-chart synastry. It takes any group of people or events that have something in common, and displays their charts on the screen side by side in linear rather than circular form. This immediately lets you see what degrees are shared by the charts.

You can draw a line through any degree to see what all the charts have on that degree, or highlight any planet or midpoint to see where it falls in each of the charts. You can also instantly change the harmonic of the charts to see the various kinds of inter-aspects or harmonic patterns within the group. Plus, you can view any chart in wheel form.

The program will also search for family patterns, using whatever harmonics, planets, midpoints or degrees you specify. It then quickly displays the patterns it finds in easy-to-read circular diagrams.

You will be able to see how the central theme or dynamic of the group is shown astrologically, and how the different individuals link into the group dynamic!



The Rectification section is now automated, making finding an unknown birth time easier than ever.

Just enter the life events and natal details and, in an instant, you will get a list of suggested birth times ranked in order of the scores that they received when tested against transits, progressions and directions. The automated process is an excellent introduction to rectification, while the manual process has been improved for greater ease of use. This section is now ideal for both the beginner and advanced astrologer.

Other exciting new features in this section include facilities to rectify using secondary and tertiary progressions and solar arc directions. Astrologers can also use more than one graph to combine both Geocentric and Heliocentric coordinate systems in the rectification process.

Another delightful addition is the improved Dynamic Chart. It's now possible to watch all of the planets rotate around a chart. Astrologers will want to spend hours just in this section alone watching transiting, progressing and solar arc directed planets spin around charts highlighting important aspects before their very eyes!

Even if you know the birth time, the rectification module can tell you much about how a chart responds to transits. It can also help you make minor adjustments to a known birth time so as to improve the accuracy of forecasts.



The Research section of JigSaw version 2.1 has to be one of the most powerful software research tools on the market. Firstly researchers can tabulate and graph trends with unprecedented ease, searching large groups of charts for a wide variety of astrological factors.

Whatever the user specifies results in an instantaneous graphic display of results. Bar or polar graphs let you see in a flash whether the effect is worth pursuing, and tables give exact figures. Plus, you can click on any part of a graph or table for an instant chi-square evaluation.

And now you can search with for specific criteria within your chart files in the powerful new Criteria Search section. The list of criteria is seemingly never-ending. To give you an inkling of just some of the possibilities the criteria include planets in signs, houses, decanates, plus essential dignities, altitude, declination, azimuth and more. This new version of JigSaw even allows you to search for degree and chart almutens! Simply set up your almuten in the new almuten editor and add it to your list of criteria.

A new data entry screen for easier use with extra options makes for the professional researchers' dream software. You can add unlimited numeric or textual data fields to each record in a project and this data may be used to select or filter records using Boolean logic. Data files can be of unlimited length!

Here as in all other parts of JigSaw you can keep a file of notes associated with each project you do. You can also make permanent, high-resolution printouts of all the charts, tables, graphs and diagrams, either for a personal record of research or for articles and research papers.
