Definitions
Biorhythm - an innate, cyclical biological process or function.
Physical Cycle - a biorhythmic cycle of about 23 days, starting at 50% from the moment of birth and rising, reaching 100% in about 5.75 days then falling, reaching 50% in about 11.5 days, and 0% in about 1.7.25 days, then rising again finishing cycle at 50% in about 23 days;
Emotional Cycle — a biorhythmic cycle of about 28 days, starting at 50% from the moment of birth and rising, reaching 100% in about 7 days then falling, reaching 50% in about 14 days, and 0% in about 21 days, then rising again finishing cycle at 50% in about 28 days;
Intellectual Cycle - a biorhythmic cycle of about 33 days, starting at 50% from the moment of birth and rising, reaching 100% in about 8.25 days then falling, reaching 50% in about 16.5 days, and 0% in about 24.75 days, then rising again finishing cycle at 50% in about 33 days;
PEI — abbreviation of described above 3 cycles: Physical, Emotional and Intellectual;
Critical time - the time when either of Physical, Emotional, or Intellectual cycles reach 50%; Fertility Cycle - A biorhythmic cycle of about 29.5 days starting from a maximum fertility (100%) at the moment of birth, falling down to 0% in abouM4.75 days and reaching the maximum 100% again in about 29.5 days;
Celestial body - The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Ascendant (rising sign on the eastern horizon at the moment of birth), Descendant (setting sign on the eastern horizon at the moment of birth), North Node, Midheaven (Medium Coeli), Equatorial Ascendant, Polar Ascendant, Co-Ascendant, Vertex, Chiron;
Natal chart or birth chart - based on each individual's birth date, time and place or geographical coordinates on earth, comprised of either geometrical positioning of celestial bodies within a circle (wheel) or its numerical values in degrees of arc from starting point of the birth chart, usually the Vernal Equinox;
Transiting celestial chart or transiting chart- based on current, past or future date, time and any geographical location, comprised of either geometrical positioning of celestial bodies within a circle (wheel) or its numerical values in degrees of arc from a starting point of the chart, usually the Vernal Equinox;
Celestial aspect - certain angular difference between a pair of celestial bodies within a degree of orb, which includes: a) Personal celestial aspect — a celestial aspect between a pair of celestial bodies from the natal chart within a degree of orb; b) Personal returning celestial aspect — a personal celestial aspect repeated in time in a transiting celestial chart within a degree of orb; c) Personal transiting celestial aspect - a celestial aspect between a celestial body of the transiting celestial chart and a celestial body of the natal chart within a degree of orb; d) Global or mundane celestial aspect — a celestial aspect between a pair of celestial bodies of the transiting celestial chart within a degree of orb; Orb - an angle of a certain degree used to calculate a celestial aspect. Each combination of a celestial aspect and a pair of celestial bodies may use different orbs. Usually the orb is within 1 to 9 degrees of arc;
• Conjunction - the celestial aspect between two celestial bodies when the angular difference between these celestial bodies is within 0 (zero) degrees plus or minus the orb;
Opposition - the celestial aspect between two celestial bodies when the angular difference between these celestial bodies is within 180 degrees plus or minus the orb;

Quincunx - the celestial aspect between two celestial bodies when the angular difference between these celestial bodies is within 150 degrees plus or minus the orb or within 210 degrees plus or minus the orb;
Universal Time (UT) - is a timescale based on the rotation of the Earth. It is a modern continuation of the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), i.e., the mean solar time on the meridian of Greenwich, England, which is the conventional 0-meridian for geographic longitude; and, iCalendar - is a standard (RFC 2445 - http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2445.txt) for calendar systems data exchange. The standard is also known as iCal or vCal. iCalendar allows users to exchange calendaring events between different software, devices, or web services. Many websites are embedding iCalendar data in web pages using hCalendar. iCalendar is based on the earlier vCalendar (vCal) industry specification by the Internet Mail Consortium (IMC). Also, new standards are emerging using XML (extended Markup Language) as per the World Wide Web Consortium (W3.orq) specifications or open source community.
Research in the human biorhythms began in the late 1800's and continued throughout last century. The biorhythm theory postulates that there are certain rhythms that have a constant cycle time in the human body. Originally, biorhythms have been identified as a 23-day cycle related to physical vitality, endurance, and energy (hereinafter P cycle); a 28-day cycle that corresponds to sensitivity, intuition, and emotional outlook (hereinafter E cycle); and a 33-day cognitive or intellectual cycle that relates to mental alertness and judgment (hereinafter I cycle). The biorhythm theory further postulates that all three cycles start upward and in a positive direction from birth and continue with the aforementioned periodicity throughout a person's life.
Research in this field has indicated that for each cycle, there are "critical days." These critical days occur for a particular cycle when that cycle is making a transition from positive to negative or negative to positive. It has been found that humans will lack endurance and energy on critical days of their P cycle, and are more likely to have accidents or make poor decisions on critical days of their E and I cycles.
More recently, the use of biorhythm computations has gained wide popularity in health controls, sporting programs and public transportation. For instance, the biorhythm is widely used in Japan to make sure that drivers of public transportation vehicles and airline pilots do not work on days on which their E and I cycles are in a critical period. Likewise it has been found that key "upsets" in sporting events involving individual athletes have occurred when the expected winner was experiencing a critical day in one or more of his or her biorhythm cycles.
Since the mid -1950's, several theories of fertility have emerged based on the cyclical rhythms. The fertility generally applies to women as "high fertility" when woman can conceive and "low fertility" when woman is unlikely to conceive. Later studies confirmed that men have similar fertility cycles when they produce more than normal amount of sperm. The fertility cycle is another biorhythmic cycle of about 29,5309 days. However, it starts from high fertility at the moment of birth, falls down to 0% in 14.765 ±0.5 days, reaches maximum 100% again in 29.5309 ±1 days.
Prior methods for calculating biorhythms used only a date of birth as a starting point for calculations. More over, prior systems generally have not converted the resulting biorhythmic values to the local time of the inquiring individual. In addition, the fertility cycle has not been generally calculated as a part of the biorhythmic activity.
By using only day of birth for calculating biorhythmic cycles and not converting those to a local time, the error in determining high, low and critical days for each biorhythmic cycles could be up to 2 days.
For example, based on prior methods, if one person is born at 00:01 - one minute after midnight, and another at 23:59 - one minute before midnight of the same day both of them would have identical biorhythms even though their birthdays are almost 1 day (23 hours and 58 minutes) apart. However, the other pair of people who are born at 23:59 of the same day and 00:01 of the next day would have biorhythms that differ by one day even though they are born just 2 minutes apart.
More over, if one person is bom in Hawaii, U.S., at 23:59 on December 20, 2005, but later moves to New Zealand and the other person is born in Hawaii at 00:01 on December 20, 2005, and stays in Hawaii, US, then the biorhythms for a given day using a biorhythm calculator of the prior methods for each of the persons could be different by almost 2 days (1 day 22 hours 58 minutes). This is because the date and time in New Zealand at the moment of birth for the first person is December 21, 2005, 22:59. This illustration assumes that the biorhythmic calculator the first person would use will not take into consideration the time zone change between place of birth and the current location of the person.
Clearly prior calculation methods for biorhythmic cycles are not accurate and therefore not acceptable based on the examples above. Personal celestial aspects are widely used, like biorhythmic cycles, to forecast positive and negative trends in one person's life. Some forecasting methods based on these celestial aspects are well described in the book "Planets in Transits : Life cycles for living" by Robert Hand (ISBN 0- 924608-26-9).
The celestial aspects between the celestial bodies within the transiting celestial chart are also used to forecast global trends that affect everybody at the same time in a given geographical location on earth. These celestial aspects are called global or mundane celestial aspects.
The prior methods exist to calculate personal and global celestial aspects. However, none of the prior systems are able to calculate and present personal or mundane celestial aspects in standard electronic calendars like Microsoft® Outlook®, Palm® Calendar, Google® Calendar or other computerized calendar systems. The disclosed method and the system describe the process of creating personal and mundane celestial aspects in iCalendar or vCalendar formats for importing and presenting in standard electronic calendars.

Figure 3 demonstrates on one example how a user can create a Profile. Each individual personally or with the help of another (representing agent) creates one or many profiles. Each profile data includes: I. General information: a) Profile Name - The nickname selected by a user to identify his or her profile. b) Gender - Male or Female.
II. Birth Data section contains the following fields: a) Date of Birth: date of birth as recorded in birth certificate or known otherwise. b) Time of Birth:_time of birth as recorded in full birth certificate or known otherwise. c) Universal Date:_date of birth in Universal Time (UT), calculated by the system, based on date, time and place of birth. Provided for user's verification and adjustment. d) Universal Time:_time of birth in Universal Time (UT), calculated by the system, based on date, time and place of birth. Provided for user's verification and adjustment. e) State or Country: Provides list of States in the US and countries in the world. f) City: the city name or partial name for search. g) Confirm City:_AII cities that match the search criteria are listed here. User needs to select the city or town where he or she was born from the list. If the city or place of birth is not listed, then the nearest larger city in the same state or country can be selected. h) Geographical coordinates: co-ordinates of the confirmed city. Provided for user's information and verification. i) Time Zone: Time zone where you were born, calculated by the system, based on date, time and place of birth.
III. Current Location section contains the following fields: a) State or Country of Current Location: provides list of States in the US and countries in the world. b) City of Current Location! the city name or partial name for search of the user's current location. c) Confirm City of Current Location: All cities that match the search criteria will be listed here. User needs to select the city or town where he or she currently resides or wants to use as a reference point for date and time conversion. If the city or place of birth is not listed, then the nearest larger city in the state or country can be selected. d) Geographical coordinates of Current Location: co-ordinates of the confirmed city. Provided for user's information and verification.
The biorhythms and celestial aspects are calculated based on date, time and place of birth of the individual and his or her current location as indicated in the personal profile. The calculating method takes into consideration not only date of birth as it is used in biorhythmic calculators today but also time of birth and geographical location of birth. Geographical location can be specified by selecting country or state, county and city, town or hospital from a database of available places on earth with associated geographical coordinates. Alternatively, geographical coordinates of birthplace can be entered or altered directly into the profile as shown in Figure 3. Profile manager attempts to convert local birth date and time to universal date and time (UT) based on birth location and time zone changes which were officially in effect at the date and time of birth. When the universal date and time is calculated, user may alter it if needed. Finally, user chooses current location by selecting country or state, city or town from a database of available places on earth with associated geographical coordinates. This could be user's actual location or the location the user wants to use as the target or reference location for biorhythmic and celestial aspects calculations.
Once a user's profile is created, the user can view biorhythmic values and celestial aspects for a selected day of the year converted to a local time of the user's current location, as shown on Figure 4, using standard Internet browser. The calculation of biorhythmic cycles such as Physical, Emotional, Intellectual and Fertility is based on the user's universal date and time of birth (UT). The values of each biorhythm are calculated for a requested local date and time, converted to the Universal Time. Upon calculation of biorhythms in UT, the time is converted to the local time of the user's current location. The results are shown for a selected time of the day (in this embodiment at noon local time) at the current location as a percentage value from 0% to 100%, where 0% is the absolute minimum and 100% is the absolute maximum of the biorhythmic cycle. In addition, critical time for each of the Physical, Emotional and Intellectual (PEI) cycles is shown when the cycle reaches 50%. All dates and times are converted to the local time of the user's current location.
The following mathematical formulas are used to calculate the value of biorhythmic cycles in a percentage point for each day, hour and minute of individual's life:
Physical = 50 + 50*Sin(2 * Pi * DaysLived / 23.0) Emotional = 50 + 50*Sin(2 * Pi * DaysLived / 28.0) Intellectual = 50 + 50*Sin(2 * Pi * DaysLived / 33.0) Fertility = 50 + 50*Cos(2 * Pi * DaysLived / 29.5309)
Where Sin(X) and Cos(X) are standard mathematical functions for sine and cosine with parameter X in radians, Pi = 3.14159, DaysLived - actual number of days lived since the moment of birth. The accurate Universal Time of birth is used as a starting point of human life, therefore DaysLived = 0 is actual moment of birth, DaysLived = 1 is at the same Universal time next day after the birth. Of course, Dayslived could be a non-integer value like DaysLived = 1.5 (1 day and 12 hours) or any other value between 0 and infinity.
Critical times for PEI cycles (when cycle reaches 50%), and time for any other value of either biorhythmic cycle (like maximum - 100% or minimum - 0%) are found for a given date range using the same formulas. First, an approximate date is calculated for the desired biorhythmic cycle value. The date is converted to DaysLived for the time of birth in UT. Then, DaysLived are adjusted to match the desired biorhythm value. Finally, DaysLived are converted to the local time and presented to the user.
The values for biorhythmic cycles at a given local date and time are calculated first by converting the local time to universal time (UT). Then calculated DaysLived since the moment of birth in UT and, using the above formulas, calculated the value of each biorhythmic cycle.
The user can download biorhythmic cycles for a selected period of time to any calendar software running on a web server, desktop computer, PDA, digital phone, digital watch or any other device. The time range in the current implementation is between 100 years in the past or the future to 100 years in the past or the future. Current implementation uses iCalendar and vCalendar standards for events interchange between various calendaring systems, however it is not limited to only these standards should new calendar interchange standards emerge in the future.
Upon the user's action to download, as shown in Figure 4, the system calculates biorhythmic cycles according to the rules for each cycle and creates a file in the Data Store or on the Internet Server. The user can download this file as shown in FIGURE 5 and import it into any calendar systems, software or device. Alternatively, users who use web-based calendars can instruct the system's server to automatically upload the file to his or her account on a web based calendar. Upon import into a calendar software or device, the biorhythmic cycles are represented as events for each day within specified time range as shown in Figure 7. The biorhythmic cycles are shown in a calendar as an event at noon local time of the user's location and contains the following information in the description of the event: the name of the cycle, the value between 0% and 100% (some implementations can use values between -1 and +1 making 0 corresponding to 50%), trend (rising or falling), description of the cycle, and the interpretation of the associated biorhythm value.
Special events such as critical, maximum and minimum times for each biorhythm are displayed for a particular time of the day as shown in Figure 7. The special event can be the minimum (0%) or maximum (100%) value for each rhythm, or the critical time for PEI rhythms (when the value of a rhythm reaches a critical point (in this method 50%), or the range of values (e.g. when physical cycle is more than 75% or fertility is less than 20%). The duration of the event is determined by event type and the user's preferences, and it is always calculated from an accurate time of the event.
Personal celestial aspects are calculated between transiting celestial bodies for a selected day, month, and year and natal celestial bodies of the user. The exact time of each celestial aspect is converted to a local time of the User X or User Y based on a selected user and its current location as defined in the user's profile. These celestial aspects are shown in Figure 4 in the section "Horoscope for Bob on Dec 28, 2006". The celestial aspect "Transiting Venus sextiles Natal Moon at 05:52 AM" is shown as the default celestial aspect for this day. Other celestial aspects are listed below.
The mundane celestial aspects are calculated between transiting celestial bodies for a selected day, month, and year at the exact time for the current location of the user. These celestial aspects are shown in Figure 4 in the section "Horoscope for Bob on Dec 28, 2006," below the personal celestial aspects separated by the horizontal line. The list of mundane celestial aspects for Dec 28, 2006, starts with "03:44 AM Transiting Moon sextiles Transiting Neptune." Other mundane celestial aspects for a day are listed below. The user can download the celestial aspects for a selected day, month, and year or any other period of time as a data file suitable for importing to a calendar software running on a web server, desktop computer, PDA, digital phone, digital watch or any other device. The time range in the current implementation is between 100 years in the past or the future to 100 years in the past or the future. One implementation uses iCalendar and vCalendar standards for data interchange between various calendaring systems. However, it is not to be limited to only these standards should new calendar interchange standards emerge in the future.
Upon the user's action to download, the system calculates personal and mundane celestial aspects using ephemeris tables for celestial bodies and creates a file in the Data Store or Internet Server. The user can download this file in iCalendar or vcalendar format as shown in Figure 6 and import it into any calendar systems, software or device. Alternatively, users who use web-based calendars can instruct the system's server to automatically upload the file to his or her account on a web-based calendar.
Upon import into a calendar software or device, the celestial aspects are represented as calendaring events as shown in Figure 7. The duration of the event for each celestial aspect can vary between different celestial aspects and a pair of celestial bodies. The duration depends on the selected orb for each celestial aspect (such as trine or conjunction) and the two celestial bodies involved. For example, the duration of celestial aspects between transiting moon and other celestial bodies are generally within a few hours, whether the celestial aspects between Transiting Pluto and some other transiting celestial bodies or natal celestial bodies could span over several months. A current example of a downloaded data file is shown in Figure 6 and has a duration of each event of 0 or 1 minute. This enables the showing of an exact time of the celestial aspect and leaves the user to interpret the duration of each celestial aspect. In addition, the description field can include various interpretations and advice from professionals in this field. Clearly, this method is not restricted only to currently used electronic data exchange formats for calendaring systems and could be applied to emerging electronic data exchange formats in the future.
From the foregoing it will be appreciated that, although specific embodiments of the invention have been described herein for purposes of illustration, various modifications may be made without deviating from the spirit and scope of the invention. Accordingly, the invention is not limited except as by the appended claims.
