Entering Interpretations

By default, birth reports will list the planets in signs, planets in houses, and aspects. This list will not include interpretations until you enter your own interpretations. This is a sample of how the birth report looks without interpretations:

Planets in Signs section of report with no interpretations

To enter your interpretations, go to “ZodiacPress” in your dashboard menu. Under the “In Signs” tab, you’ll see links for each Planet that you enabled in the settings. When you enter an interpretation, BE SURE TO click “Save Changes” at the bottom of each page before navigating between these links.

The same goes for the “In Houses” tab and the “Aspects” tab. Under each tab, you’ll see the planets (or aspects) which you enabled in the settings. You’re not required to fill in ALL of interpretations. Birth reports will still list all of the planets in signs, planets in houses, and aspects, even if the interpretations are not entered. Birth reports will include a particular interpretation if it exists (i.e. if you’ve entered it).

Here is a sample of a birth report that does not have an interpretation for “Sun in Sagittarius” or “Mercury in Sagittarius.” Notice that they are still listed on the report, even though an interpretation for those does not exist.

Allowed HTML Tags

You can use some basic HTML tags in the interpretations, including a (links), strong (bold text), em (italics), and img (images). Here are examples for how to add each.

  • A Link
    Replace URL with the web page to link to. Replace “clickable link text” with your own text.

    <a href="URL">clickable link text</a> 
  • Bold Text
    Replace “bold text” with your own text.

    <strong>bold text</strong> 
  • Italics
    Replace “text in italics” with your own text.

    <em>text in italics</em> 
  • Images
    Replace “URL” with the full URL of the image file (you can upload an image in the Media Library, then get its file URL). Replace “Image description” with your own. Replace ’42’ with the height and width of the image.

    <img src="URL" alt="Image description" height="42" width="42" />

  1. When i enter “Birth City” and click “next”, it eventually comes up as tells me to Enter a Birth City”. I’ve tried several. I do have a geoname. I logged into geonames under my geoname sucessfully.

    So not clear what is going on ???

    Thanks. I’m really exited to use this so eagerly awaiting your response!

    • I’m very sorry, the birth city field did have an issue. The updated version which was just released (1.3) should fix that problem. Thank you for reporting it.

      • I have version 1.3 and I still have the “enter a birth city” issue. I have a geonames account and it’s setup.

        • Did you do this extra step: After you create your GeoNames account, you have to enable their free web services by going to their manage account page and click to enable them at the bottom where it says “Free Web Services.”)
