A horoscope is an astrological illustration of the position of the sun, moon, and planets from a given latitude and longitude on earth at a given moment, usually that of birth.
The construction of the horoscope is based on the Ptolemaic system in which the earth is stationary and the heavenly bodies move around it in a fixed pattern
Astrologers have divided the heavens into twelve sections, each thought to be ruled by a different sign of the zodiac belt through which the sun, moon, and planets move in twelve fixed positions called houses.
Once the particular sign and house has been established, the mythological characteristics of the heavenly bodies, modified by the geometrical relationship between them, are used to foretell events in the life of the individual for which the horoscope has been drawn.
The twelve houses, and the corresponding dates are listed below, if you want to locate your birth date, in order to learn more about your individual horoscope.
Many people who are interested in astrology, have their birth chart drawn up for them, to see how that date might influence their horoscope. Always seek a professional who has studied the science.
