Auxiliary Charts

Additional chart types that are based on a radix (natal/event) are called Auxiliary Charts in LUNA. These include charts such as the Secondary Progressed, Solar Arc Directed, Solar Return & Relocated types.

To create any one of these chart types, look for the Auxiliary Charts panel when viewing a radix chart.

Auxiliary Charts Panel on Desktop

If you're viewing a chart on your laptop or desktop computer, the Auxiliary Charts panel will show to the right of the chart.

Auxiliary Charts Panel on Mobile

When on your mobile or tablet device, the panel is collapsed at the bottom of your screen. You can open it by tapping on the bar which will expand the panel.

Secondary Progressed

In the Auxiliary Charts panel, select the Secondary Progressed option to instantly cast a Secondary Progressed (SP) chart for the radix. By default, LUNA will calculate the SP chart for the current time and the radix location. You can easily change this once the chart is cast by using the Spacetime Navigator panel.

FYI

LUNA calculates the angles and house cusps of secondary progressions according to Solar Arc Longitude. This means once the progressed Sun is calculated, the same progression value is applied to the Midheaven. In turn, the remaining angles and house cusps are calculated based on this progressed MC value.

Secondary Progressed Info Panel

Using the Spacetime Navigator when viewing a Secondary Progressed chart will animate the SP chart. If you're viewing a biwheel of Transits + SP, the Spacetime Navigator will animate both charts appropriately.

  • To close the SP chart, select the Return to Natal Chart option from the info panel.
  • To save the current SP chart, select the Save option.

Auxiliary Panel with Saved SP Chart

When viewing the radix chart, any of your previously saved SP charts are available from the Saved Charts button. You can save as many SP charts as you like; they will appear in this menu in chronological order.

Delete SP Chart

Select the trash icon to delete a previously saved SP chart. LUNA will ask you to confirm the delete operation which will also delete any associated chart notes you may have saved with it.

Solar Arc Directed

In the Auxiliary Charts panel, select the Solar Arc Directed option to instantly cast a Solar Arc Directed (SA) chart for the radix. By default, LUNA will calculate the SA chart for the current time and the radix location. You can easily change this once the chart is cast by using the Spacetime Navigator panel.

Secondary Progressed Info Panel

Using the Spacetime Navigator when viewing a Solar Arc Directed chart will animate the SA chart. If you're viewing a biwheel of Transits + SA, the Spacetime Navigator will animate both charts appropriately.

  • To close the SA chart, select the Return to Natal Chart option from the info panel.
  • To save the current SA chart, select the Save option.

Auxiliary Panel with Saved SP Chart

When viewing the radix chart, any of your previously saved SA charts are available from the Saved Charts button. You can save as many SA charts as you like; they will appear in this menu in chronological order.

Delete SP Chart

Select the trash icon to delete a previously saved SA chart. LUNA will ask you to confirm the delete operation which will also delete any associated chart notes you may have saved with it.

Solar Return

In the Auxiliary Charts panel, the Solar Return option will display the radix's location by default. You can change the location here, and you can also change it after the chart is cast by using the Solar Return Navigator. By default, LUNA will calculate the current Solar Return for the radix chart.

Secondary Progressed Info Panel

You can use the Solar Return Navigator to enter a specific year and/or location to easily cast a different solar return chart.

  • To close the Solar Return chart, select the Return to Natal Chart option from the info panel.
  • To save the current Solar Return chart, select the Save option.

Auxiliary Panel with Saved SP Chart

When viewing the radix chart, any of your previously saved Solar Return charts are available from the Saved Charts button. You can save as many Solar Return charts as you like; they will appear in this menu in chronological order.

Delete SP Chart

Select the trash icon to delete a previously saved Solar Return chart. LUNA will ask you to confirm the delete operation which will also delete any associated chart notes you may have saved with it.

Relocated

In the Auxiliary Charts panel, the Relocated option will display your home location by default. You can change the location here, and you can also change it after the chart is cast by using the Relocation Navigator.

Secondary Progressed Info Panel

You can use the Relocation Navigator to enter a specific location of your choice. Changing this value will not change your home location; it will only affect the current Relocated chart.

  • To close the Relocated chart, select the Return to Natal Chart option from the info panel.
  • To save the current Relocated chart, select the Save option.

Auxiliary Panel with Saved SP Chart

When viewing the radix chart, any of your previously saved Relocated charts are available from the Saved Charts button. You can save as many Relocated charts as you like; they will appear in this menu in chronological order. When the times of the saved Relocated charts are the same, they will sort in alphabetical order secondarily.

Delete SP Chart

Select the trash icon to delete a previously saved Relocated chart. LUNA will ask you to confirm the delete operation which will also delete any associated chart notes you may have saved with it.
