THE DEPTHS of your mind and personality will be probed with Star Gazer, an astrological program for the 48K Spectrum. All it requires is your birth-date and time, together with the longitude and latitude of birth. It will then provide a horoscope designed with your natal data in mind.

The computer will ponder the data for about two minutes and then draw a chart with all the planets in the relevant signs of the Zodiac and the houses, calculated using the Equal House system, around the circular rim of the chart. It will then give you a character reading depending on which planet is in which house of the solar system. Each house is taken in turn and by the end of the reading you should know things about yourself which you did not know previously.

Several readings were done in the Sinclair User office and when compared they seemed to be very similar. The readings were general in description of personality types, so that everyone found something in them which was true.

If you are a novice at astrology and want to learn more, the program will give you the opportunity at the end of the personality profile. If you select the option for more information it will tell you how to interpret the chart and where to obtain more details about the subject.

The package is very comprehensive and was written by a member of the Astrological Association. If you want to know more about the occult side of your nature, it draws a good horoscope,

Star Gazer can be obtained from Computer Rentals at 140 Whitechapel Road, London, E1 1EJ. It costs £5.95.
