What is horoscope?
Definition of horoscope
The word horokop comes from the Greek word h?ra (time, hour) and scopos (pointer, marker). A horoscope is a forecast of the future events or features of a person. Horoscope is a map or schematic representation of the position of the Sun, the Moon and other planets at a specific moment (birth, special events, etc.). Based on the position of the celestial signs at a given moment, we can predict or understand certain personality traits, psychological even certain physical characteristics of the individual.
The horoscope is illustrated with the Zodiac circle. Zodiac is again a Greek word that means animal circle. It consists of twelve animal characters, corresponding to twelve zodiac star constellations wich are: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.
The Sun and the Moon are the most important planets in the horoscope forecasts. The Sun is the the main indicator of what character we are by the horoscope. The Moon's position tells us how a person responds to life situations.
Aren't we all anxious to read announcements about what today, tomorow, next week or even next year will bring us? Today, the horoscope is part of our everyday life.
Other commonly used names for the horoscope are natal chart, astrological chart, astro-chart, sky-map, star-chart, celestial map, cosmogram, vitasphere, radical chart, radix, chart wheel or simply chart.
