FAQ

What do I do if I have an issue with my almanac?

Please contact us right away at support@honeycomb.co. Ensuring the Almanac meets your expectations is a top priority. We’d like to hear about any and all concerns you might have!

Why would I choose a 6-month almanac?

There are a few reasons people choose the 6 month almanac:

  • We’re constantly releasing new features for the almanac. For some folks, 12 months is a long time to wait to get all those new features!
  • Some people prefer to be able to start fresh more often than every 12 months.
  • It costs less. You get to try out the almanac for $22 instead of $35!
  • It’s a lighter book, so it’s even easier to carry around!

Both the 6-month and 12-month almanacs contain 24 months of outer planet transit graphs! These graphs start 3 months before your almanac start date, and extend 21 months into the future.

Both also include 12 months of mundane and natal aspects to lunation and planetary stations, and 12 months of ephemeris pages!

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, we do!

Right now, we’re shipping the almanac from our printer in the US, which often means high shipping prices for international customers. We’re actively looking at options for printing the almanac in other locations around the world, so that we can ship locally. Ideally we want to offer free shipping everywhere in the world — stay tuned!

Which zodiac and house system does the almanac use?

You can choose either a tropical zodiac or a sidereal zodiac. If you choose the sidereal zodiac, you can also choose form a selection of popular ayanamsas. Please let us know if you need an alternative ayanamsa, and we'll do our best to add it in a future version!

For the tropical zodiac can choose from whole-sign, placidus, or porphyry house systems. For the sidereal zodiac we offer the equal house system.

Why isn't my preferred house system available?

We've really agonized over striking a balance between simplicity and choice. We very much want to avoid an overwhelming set of choices in the ordering process. We also want to make sure we do a smaller set of things well, rather than a larger set no so well. The current set of options represents our effort to strike a balance here. That said, we love feedback, and letting us know what you want to see is the best way to see those changes in future versions of the almanac!

Which aspects are shown in the almanac?

Conjunction (0º), sextile (60º), square (90º), trine (120º), and opposition (180º) aspects are shown in the transits. Additionally, the natal chart shows quincunx (150º) aspects.

How do you calculate shipping prices?

We always try to subsidize the cheapest trackable shipping option our carriers offer us in order to present afforable options to our customers. In the US, this means we can offer free shipping, and internationally it means that we are often giving significant discounts on what we’re actually paying our carriers.

We’re able to offer better international shipping prices on the 12-month almanac, because the $35 price point gives us a little more room to subsidize the cost of the shipping prices we’re paying. Our carriers generally charge us the same shipping fee for both the 12-month and 6-month almanac. Because of this, the 6-month almanac may sometimes have a higher shipping price than the 12-month.

Why is shipping outside the US so expensive?

Unfortunately, the prices we offer reflect what our carriers are charging us. As an example, the cheapest trackable shipping option offered for some European locations is $35 — the same price as the 12-month almanac! We do subsidize international shipping, so hopefully we're able to offer everyone a shipping price lower than this, but overall the prices are still way higher than we’d like. We’re actively looking at options for printing the almanac internationally so that we can ship locally. Ideally we’d be able to offer free shipping everywhere in the world!

How long does it take to receive my almanac after ordering?

The almanac will be printed and shipped within 6-9 days, and delivery time depends on the shipping option chosen. A good estimate of the arrival date is given at checkout and in your order confirmation. In our experience, deliveries in the US often arrive earlier than the estimated date.

The following are indicative times:

  • Free US Shipping: approx. 2-3 weeks
  • International Shippng: approx. 2 weeks
  • Expedited Shipping (US and international): approx. 10 days

How did you choose the price of the 6-month almanac?

We chose the price so that we make the same amount no matter whether you choose to work with one 12-month almanac or two 6-month almanacs. The math came out to a few cents less than $22, and we rounded up to the whole dollar. It was a little tricky to calculate because we also subsidize shipping costs (i.e. to offer free US shipping and lower rates for international shipping), and two 6-month almanacs also have two shipping costs! Because of this, international shipping on the 12-month almanac is cheaper than on the 6-month almanac.

Which types of transits are shown in the almanac?

The monthly calendar shows all mundane aspects (except the moon, where only phasal aspects to the sun are shown), and all natal transits (except for the moon, where only conjunctions are shown).

The weekly planner pages show all mundane aspects, including the moon, and all natal transits (except for the moon, where only conjunctions are shown).
