Morinus is a Free Cross Platform Astrological Program Written in Python

IMPORTANT: If you can't download the files (e.g. they are corrupted) then try it from another internet connection or try it later.

Morinus is an easy to use astrology software under GPLv3 license. It uses the swiss ephemeris so it's very accurate (5000BC - 5000AD).
It runs on every Operating System where Python and wxPython are available(Linux, Unix, Windows, MacOS).

Note that in case of a chart created for a date earlier than 1583 Julian-calendar need to be used.

Download (Binary):

This is the simple way, just download (see attachments at the bottom of the page) and extract it. You can start the program by clicking on morinus.exe. However, this way the program will use the built-in Moshier-ephemeris(3000BC-3000AD)  which calculates the same positions for e.g. 1973. You can remedy this if you download the zipped ephemeris files (,,, at the bottom of the page), extract it and copy the files into the MorinusWinEng/SWEP/Ephem directory. Google Sites allows uploading files not greater than 12MB, this is why I had to split the Swiss Ephemeris into four files. Tested on WinXP(SP2, SP3) and Win7(32 bit and 64 bit). Important: This is the 32-bit version(sweastrology.pyd)!
There is no need to install python because it is already included in the Windows-binary.
