A lot of people think that horoscopes are just group of words stating of what is to be expected in the future. Daily horoscopes that we read in newspapers and magazines all have a basis, and they’re not merely written to entertain people. Astrologers also refer to horoscopes as “the chart”.

The chart that is filled with many symbols is actually the sky. The symbols seen here are the planets, the stars and the moon, and their positions vary depending on places, dates and times. The meaning of horoscopes differs from one culture to another, and countries do not have similar astrological maps as they have different locations thereby giving the sky a different view.
The chart that is circle in shape is divided equally into 12. These 12 divisions are known as the zodiac signs. This can be compared to a typical clock, but they differ in the movements of the hands wherein the hands on the chart moves counter clockwise. Another obvious difference is that a clock does not have symbolic figures. The left side refers to the east, the right side to the west, the top part is the south, and the bottom is the north.
There are twelve zodiac signs that represent birth dates, and they are Aquarius, Aries, Cancer, Capricorn, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Pisces, Sagittarius, Scorpio, Taurus and Virgo. These zodiac signs all come in different symbols.
Each of the 12 divisions in the chart is sub-divided into three. These subdivisions are known as “houses”. The person’s personality is found in the first house while the person’s finances or resources are in the second house. And in the last subdivision contains the person’s thoughts.
Aside from the twelve zodiac signs and its houses that helps determine the astrological map of a person, there are also symbols that represent the planets as well as the moon and the stars that completes the process. The zodiac signs, the houses, and the symbols are interconnected with each other. The planets play a major role in the chart as it brings together the signs and houses thereby forming the horoscope of a person.
The horoscopes that we daily read in newspapers and magazines are not just being invented. They are all based on time, date and location, and are read through the skies with the use of the chart. Boiled down, the universal meaning of horoscopes across different countries and cultures is the position of the sun, planets, moon, and certain constellations at the time of one’s birth.
