Ephemeris Search Engine

Ephemeris Search Engine

Do you want to know the dates when Venus was in Leo, Mars was at 6° Aries, Mercury was retrograde ... and Jupiter was also in conjunction with Saturn?

Ephemeris Search Engine allows you to combine all of these astrology search options.

  • Degrees° are rounded to the whole degree:
    - If you search for Mars in 6° Aries then you will get all dates with Mars in 6°00' - 6°59' Aries.
  • Select optional "orbs" for aspects (distance from exactness):
    - If you select the smaller orb° (smaller distance) then you will get a short time period when the aspect was exact and intense.
    - If you select the larger orb° (larger distance) then you will get a longer time period during which the aspect was active, but not as intense.
