I'm not sure why your husband was embarrassed unless your reaction made him feel that way. He was thoughtful and bought you a present. Not many people are as lucky to have such a thoughtful partner. Chances are, if he got the more advanced version you wouldn't understand how to use the tools within it because its more for professional use. Just be thankful he bought you something and attempt to actually use it before leaving a negative review based on user error. Poor guy, he made an effort and you're complaining about a completely workable software that has an easy to use interface. The fact that this is the first review I saw when I'm about to purchase the advanced software is what prompted me to write. Amazon should move this to the bottom. Negative reviews that have validity should be at top, but this is a whine fest and it was off putting especially because there is nothing wrong with this product or company.
I normally don't comment on reviews, and this is 6 years late, but as a customer now looking at reviews before I purchase to see this one first was ridiculous. It's based on reasons that are obviously user error, not the company or software. I had to say something. Don't give a bad rating to a company on a product because you don't understand how to navigate and use it. Call or email first to get help. If the software and company were as bad as you're making it sound, I think they would not still be around and so popular 6 years later. Maybe by now you learned to use it and should rewrite a positive review.
Last year, when my PC crashed and I switched back to a Mac computer, I was surprised at how few astrology software programs are available for Mac. I decided at that time not to get Time Passages and to just use my astro.com membership to store charts until I could find the right software. At the time, I thought the pop up windows would distract me.
After trying the demo this weekend, I decided to purchase Time Passages after all. I wanted an advanced software which would allow bi-wheel and tri-wheel charts (this allows you to compare a birth chart to another person's chart or to look at a birth chart, progressed chart, and transits side by side). I also wanted a program which would generate reports. Time Passages offers a Natal Report and a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month report. You can pay extra to get the compatibility and relationship reports or the astro map report. And, next year, they will have another add-on solar return report.
This makes it easy to have a report to give friends and family or to your clients. I purchased the Advanced version for $199, plus the commercial license for $179 plus the compatibility and relationship reports (which are about $119 each or $199 for both, though if you buy the software and commercial license, they do give you a discounted rate).
The Transit reports are very long and detailed. For example, the 12 month report was over 90 pages. The 6 month report was around 50 pages.
I found that I actually do like the ability to click on the aspects in a chart and see the description as I'm an intermediate astrology student and there are a few aspects I'm not as comfortable with. It also gives descriptions of the overall chart pattern (funnel, splatter, open angle, etc.).
For the beginner, they have cheaper versions of the software which don't have the ability to pass on the reports (which is what is offered here on Amazon). This software is a really good learning tool because it's very interactive and the descriptions of aspects and transits are written in understandable English rather than something only an astrologer would understand. So if you don't have a class near you or you prefer to study on your own, this software is a great tool to practice astrology.
Pros: well-priced when compared to other advanced astrology software, offers reports that you can sell or give out, has optional pop up windows that explain each aspect (for the beginner), offers a variety of charts: solar return, lunar return, progressed, bi-wheel and tri-wheel, astro-cartography map, you can add major asteroids, Cenaurs, and custom points. I think there is a way to edit the reports to include your own custom descriptions, but I haven't figured out how to do this yet. You can also customize the appearance of the chart (for example, the default has the aspect lines in a bi-wheel chart going crossing over the inner chart to the outer chart, which was very distracting for me until I realized I could disable this feature). There is an Animate feature which allows you to advance the chart by minute, hour, day, month, or year to see how the transiting planets will affect the chart in the future.
Cons: If purchased through Amazon, you will probably need to upgrade the software to use a lot of the features and you will need the commercial license if you want to distribute the reports, solar return chart interpretations will not be available for several months and it's not clear on the website that this feature is not included in advanced version of the software. In order to use the astro-cartography feature, you need to have experience with it or you need to have a book because there are no pop-up windows to explain the planetary lines (though you can pay for the astro map add on).
