New: notifications for selected hours.
Hours is an app for calculating planetary hours according to the traditional astrological rules. The app will calculate planetary hours for:
1) Your current location, defined by GPS.
2) Any of over 42,000 of predefined locations around the world from the database shipped with the app.
3) Any custom location you might want to define, specifying its latitude and longitude.
You can select any date from January 1st, 1900.
Hours also displays an extensive list of attributes for each planet.
In addition, planetary strengths are calculated. Their importance was emphasized by the 17th century herbalists, as well as by contemporary practitioners.
In the latest version, a possibility to generate a notification when a particular hour starts was added.

Ratings and Reviews
*UPDATE*Good update, needs improvement
Older version: I have been using this app for sometime, but for Traditional Astrology the Planetary Day rulership starts over at sunset.
So on Monday the moon rules the rising hour and the setting hour.
This is a staple of all Traditional methods, perhaps an option can be added.
New version: Here is an explanation of the proper calculation desired by Traditional Astrologers (via Renaissance Astrology);
"get your local sunrise and sunset times from the newspaper or the US Naval Observatory. Take the time from sunrise to sunset and divide by twelve to get the length of each planetary hour for the day. Take the time from sunset to sunrise the next day and divide that by twelve for the length of each planetary hour by night. Then starting with the planet that rules the day, e.g. Saturn for Saturday, follow the Chaldean order and assign the proper planet to each planetary hour of the day and night that you have just calculated."
My Go To app for planetary hours info -Excellent!!
This app has been my daily go to for information about the planetary hours for the past year or so. It gives the strength of the planet at the hour of the day and also plenty of information, beginning with Key Ideas, at your fingertips when you tap on the hour. You can scroll ahead or look back and check the hours in your location with the calendar feature or any other location you want with the custom time and location zones available on the bottom of the screen. I use this app everyday and it’s been so helpful and valuable to me. This is a one of a kind app, I have never had any problems with it, it’s my favorite place to get info on the planetary hours. A “must have “ if you are looking for this kind of information. I have an IPhone 7.
Nothing not to love ❤️ about app
It’s very useful, very clear information on planetary hours with an awesome incredibly hard to find bonus of planet strength. Could it be more fancy? Sure. But does it need to? Not at all. THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE APP (if you ever want to add Lilly’s rules for strength and debility somewhere in the app, we would love to have them handy). And the app could use notifications. BUT not for all hours. There are other apps that do that, Vedic apps like Cosmic Insights. For your app it would be nice to be able to choose what planetary hour you care for. So if I only choose Mars and Saturn, those notifications are the only ones we get. That would be AWESOME. Thank you Vladimir. 😎
