What is a Horoscope?
The word ‘horoscope’ comes from the Latin combination of two words in which ‘Horo’ means an hour and ‘Scope’ means to view, so it is a ‘view of the hour.’ One definition of ‘horoscope’ is that it is a representation of particular celestial energies based on heavenly patterns, such as you see in magazines or newspapers.
Astrologers refer to the horoscope as the astrological chart of a person or a moment in time, which is calculated from the planetary positions in either the sidereal or tropical Zodiac. The calculations used are based on the date, place, and time of birth. That’s why a horoscope is so personal, like a fingerprint.
When an astrologer works with an accurately-timed chart, the energies carried within it are unique to that individual. Be aware that the chart energies of the planets and signs serve as the potential for personal expression within that individual.
The horoscope holds within it planets, signs, aspects, houses, and other points that reflect potential patterns and characteristics. It is our free will that allows us to work with these patterns or remold them to be expressed in other ways.
Horoscope can be used to help you in many ways. It can reveal unfavorable behavioral patterns or forewarn you of upcoming challenges. It can help you pinpoint latent talents you may possess and provide you with specific hints on how to best develop them. Horoscope can also point out expansive, rewarding trends that are coming up and help you in determining how to take advantage of them before they fade. Finally, the horoscope is an excellent means to determine the perfect timing for certain actions.
The beauty of horoscope is that it will help you to always be in complete control of your life. Horoscope is not fortune telling: but it is a recognition that we have free will. We know we are not controlled by the planets, but the planets do create some certain atmospheres of constriction or ease, that keeps us on our toes.
When you are going through a hard time, horoscope can give you hope because you will know when the cosmos will give you a hand to get you back on your feet. When you know you’re due for some good fortune, you will have time to prepare so you can position yourself to benefit from it. To make horoscope work for you, you will need to show the universe your intent and be willing to roll up your sleeves and work. Nobody said life would be easy all the time, but it can be quite an adventure.
Good energy always attracts more good energy. If you act courageously, prepare thoroughly, work passionately and are honest and ethical, you will overcome obstacles and ultimately achieve your dreams. If there is anything I want to impart to you it is this: life rewards action. Make decisions not out of fear but out of conviction. Sometimes the line dividing the two is thin, but it is an important one. Also listen to your intuition, even if you have no reason to believe it is right. Your intuition is the voice of your heart and it will protect you. You can hone your intuition by paying attention to it, trusting it and using it. Finally, take your goals seriously and others around you will too.
You will be limited only by your imagination. If you open your mind and ask lots of questions, even more information will be revealed to you. Cast a wide net and then consider all of your options—horoscope will aid you in the process.
