And the two together strongly influence your emotional mode of operation.

What Is A Horoscope?

A Horoscope is the astrological chart of a person or a moment in time, which is calculated from the planetary positions. The calculations used are based on the date, place and time of birth. According to, The actual word 'horoscope' is derived from the Latin combination of two words in which 'Horo' means hour and 'Scope' means view, so it is a 'view of the hour.' One definition of 'horoscope' is that it is a delineation of particular celestial energies based on heavenly patterns, such as you see in magazines or newspapers.

How To Read Your Horoscope

Typically, horoscopes can be given on a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly basis. These are, as explained in the previous section, readings by astrologers based on several factors. These readings can describe your chosen period of time and the challenges and opportunities that are likely to present themselves during certain points. Now, the important note here is that you should not take these as points to dictate your day/week/month/year. These are simply possibilities, not guaranteed events. Additionally, your perception of your horoscope may be different than that of another with your sign, so you should take the predictions and see how they apply to your own life.

Remember, take your readings with regards of your own unique life. Have fun with them and use your sign as a symbol of your individual strengths. Looking for a constant reminder of your sign?
