Morinus (modern version) - astrology program on Mac

Morinus
is an easy to use astrology software under GPLv3 license which means a free for all users. It uses the Swiss ephemeris (http://www.astro.com/) so it's very accurate (5000BC - 5000AD). Morinus software exists in two versions, modern version (see here (https://sites.google.com/site/pymorinus/)) and traditional version (see here (https://sites.google.com/site/tradmorinus/morinus)).
It runs on every operating system where Python and wxPython are available (Linux, Unix, Windows, Mac OS X). This project site contains only Mac OS X version of modern version of program. Other versions, including other platforms, see the external links section links on this site.

This Mac OS X version is based on Morinus 6.2 for MS Windows. Program has been tested on following Mac OS X (version 10.7.4 and 10.6.x), there is no guarantee that program will run on other Mac OS X versions (10.5.x and earlier). I have no machine with these operating system versions :-(

Installation (Mac OS X)
  • download the latest dmg file from http://code.google.com/p/morinus-astro/downloads/list (http://code.google.com/p/morinus-astro/downloads/list), with or without Swiss Ephemeris data files
  • double click installed dmg file, new volume is mounted (name = morinus)
  • double click volume "morinus", volume is opened in Finder
  • drag and drop "Morinus" application bundle into your favorite destination ( Desktop, Application folder, ...), avoid to use ~/Documents folder for installation.
History of Morinus releases and downloads (Mac OS X) is located here (http://code.google.com/p/morinus-astro/wiki/Releases).
