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.
