The Basics of Astrology: Introduction
Horoscope is a birth-chart that signifies symbolic representation of an individual’s current status in relation to the position of the sun, moon, planets and other particular stars at certain time of an individual’s birth.
As it is widely known that the earth revolves around the sun on an elliptical path which takes the period of a complete year. This elliptical path is termed as ecliptic in astrological terms which is further divided into 12 sections. Such 12 sections are called ‘Zodiac signs’, i.e. Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Pisces. An astrologer predicts future status or prospective position of a particular individual with the aid of these zodiac signs along with assigned position of planets. Each sign and planet symbolizes human characteristics, behavior, psychology, physiology, aptitude and their actions incorporated to that individual.
