Square of 4 Properties


Undock Page

Left click on the desired colour to select it.

Start Price
Allows you to adjust the first number of the Square of 4 (by default this is 1).

Ephemeris Date
Allows you to set the Ephemeris Date, which sets the position of the planets on the Square of 4's outer ring chart accordingly.

Allows you to adjust the increment between one square to the next.  By default this is set to 1.  (ie - When set to 1, the Square of 4 starts with 1, then moves to 2, then 3, etc.  Adjusting  this setting to 5 would mean the next number after 1 in the Square would be 6).

Selected Price
Allows you to select a price where items such as Aspects and Overlays are calculated from.  This can also be done by left clicking the desired item on the Square of 4 chart itself.

  • Square
