Horoscopes are charts created by astrologers. A definition of a horoscope is: the illustration of the position of the sun, moon, and planets from a given location on earth, usually at birth. Which simply means, where everything in the universe is in relation to everything else when you were born. People have been reading about their horoscopes for a long time now, it's nothing new. The earliest known horoscope was from 409 B.C. where it started to spread in the East with the conquerors of the Roman Empire. From there, it started spreading all the way across to Western Europe, where it was almost considered a science itself by all learned people. Everyone has an astrological sign.

There are 12 in all. They are called "zodiac signs". The 12 signs are called :  Aries is the ram, Taurus is the bull, Gemini is the twins, Cancer is the crab, Leo is the Lion, Virgo is the virgin, Libra is the scales, Scorpio is the scorpion , Sagittarius is the archer, Capricorn is the goat, Aquarius is the water bearer, and Pisces are the fish. There are also four different categories that they are put into. Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are fire signs. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are earth signs. Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are air signs. Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are water signs. Each sign represents a set of human traits/characteristics. They deal with certain area of a person's life, such as marriage, health, work, travel, and death. Astrologers believe that the position of the objects in the sky when you were born and their movements reflect the person's character and destiny. The horoscope also is divided into 12 houses. Unlike the zodiac signs, which represent the annual cycle of the sun, the house represent the 24 hours of a day of the Earth's daily rotation. Astrologers make predictions by studying the position of the objects with all of the 12 signs and of the 12 houses. You might see your horoscope in the newspaper today. It's based on the signs of the zodiac I mentioned, and where the Sun was located when you were born. It implies that all people born under the same sign anywhere in the world at any time share common characteristics.

People reading about their daily horoscope can either believe it or not. It depends on the what you believe is true. Horoscopes are often opinions or false facts, but it sometimes give the accurate meaning of the things that are happening to us at the present. It is somehow fascinating that our zodiac signs predict the things that are and that will happen in our daily living. Either way, ourselves can decide whether to believe or not to.
