When searching, you can specify a wide date range so you can easily:
Plus, you can compose any of your searches into a unified timeline that you can browse, filter and download.
This guide is an introduction to the main features of LUNA's Ephemeris Search. We won't cover every detail of this exciting feature, but we will go through the primary functions by using a specific search as an example.
In this guide, you will learn how to:

When you first visit the Ephemeris, you'll see an Aspect search form by default. To calculate the full lunation cycles for an entire decade, you'll want to:
Click or tap the "Search Aspects" button and LUNA will take you to your "My Searches" screen with this new search you just created shown as pending (it only takes a few moments to complete).
Once your search is ready, LUNA will automatically display a timeline of the events that were found based on your input parameters, sorted chronologically from the oldest to the newest event. You can change the sort order by selecting the "Date" link column header.
Now that we have almost 500 aspect events, we can apply some filtering to our timeline so only the specific aspects we're interested in seeing will display.
Use the "Keyword Filter" field to enter
aries conjunction, then click the "Filter" button.
Our timeline now shows only the conjunctions (i.e. "New Moons") that occur in the sign of Aries throughout our entire search range.
You may have noticed the "Start Date" and "End Date" fields. You can use these in conjunction (pun very much intended) with the "Keyword Filter" to create even more specific filtering of your timeline. All 3 of these filters are optional so feel free to experiment until you get the results you want.
Now that we have our timeline looking the way we want, let's see how to view the charts for these events. You can select any of the entries from the timeline and you'll be taken to the chart for that event. Note that the date, time and location of this chart is based on your home location.
On the chart (or "Horoscope") screen, you'll see a new panel appear below the Spacetime Navigator. The Timeline Navigator is a powerful way to easily navigate across all of the events in your filtered timeline. I'm emphasizing the word "filtered" here because remember that we applied a keyword filter of
aries conjunction to our timeline. Now if you click forwards or backwards in the Timeline Navigator, all of the events that you were just viewing will load into the chart automatically for you one at a time, according to the order you saw them appear in your timeline (the previous screen).
You can easily return to your timeline by selecting the "Back to Timeline" text link.
One more important point to make here is that you can navigate away from this event via the Spacetime Navigator. When you do, the event in the Timeline Navigator fades out a little and you will see a "Reload Event" button. This indicates that you are no longer viewing the event that's showing in the Timeline Navigator, but can easily return to it at anytime.
Select the "Close Panel" text link to remove the Timeline Navigator from your screen. You can go back to the Ephemeris > My Searches screen at any time to view your previously completed searches and compose a new timeline.
While this guide provided you with an overview of how LUNA's Ephemeris Search works, it's worth reviewing the Knowledge Base to read more about what's possible.
