Today I’ll share a few fun and interesting free offerings for astrology lovers. The vast collection of birth data from AstroDataBank has recently been converted into an online resource in the Wiki family. You can do a free search online for birth data, charts, and pictures of some 20,000 notables in this collection at: http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Main_Page
The “About” Page notes: “Originally, Astro-Databank was created by the American astrologer Lois Rodden, who collected most of the data in a life long effort. To achieve quality control of data used for astrological research and for serious astrological discussion, Lois created the Rodden Rating system. She published a series of books with well research charts and biographical information which she had collected over the years. In 1995 Lois Rodden was joined by the programmer Mark McDonough. Together they formed the AstroDatabank company and created the PC software program ‘AstrodataBank’ which had excellent research capabilities. The company changed ownership in 2005, but faced a critical situation in the summer of 2008 and was about to close down. Alois Treindl, founder and owner of Astrodienst AG in Switzerland, had long been an admirer of Lois Rodden’s and Mark McDonough’s work When he heard about the problems Astrodatabank was having, he stepped in by acquiring AstrodataBank before it could fail.”
AstroDienst also makes it possible for you to calculate an astrology chart for free at http://www.astro.com/cgi/ade.cgi?ract=ahor.cgi&
