Horoscopes answer many questions, if properly analyzed and interpreted by an astrologer with a lot of expertise and practice in this extraordinary pseudo scientific discipline.
Astrology is not considered an official science, in modern day, although it features all the constitutive elements a science needs. It has its principles, methods and rules that are all to be well studied and applied in practicing astrology.
There are many divided opinions amongst common people, regarding Western modern astrology. Perhaps all the media attention it gets and all the corruption and trickery it is susceptible too (just as any other science, in fact), make astrology appear as an amusement or even a manipulative trick that serves only to material profit of a person practicing astrology.
Well, it is not all like that. Astrology deserves admiration and respect, being a very old path of observing and understanding the world. The power of cosmic forces should never be underestimated and some other, official disciplines definitely prove so. Astrology is closely related to astronomy and these were equally praised in old times. Actually, they were the same thing.
Many astronomers of the past were astrologers, as well. Just as notable scientists, researchers, mathematicians, geographers and explores and many more were also astrologers.
Astrology is very old; some thousands of years ago lie its roots. Western astrology, which is the one we talk about here, originates millennia ago. It comes from old Persia.
Over some other periods of humankind history, astrology was forbidden, denied and placed amongst witchery, sorcery and all sorts of esoteric and obscure works. Today, it is popular; however, since we live in the age of reason, but also the age of materialism and omnipresence, feelings towards astrology are ambivalent. Some people trust astrology, others would never take it seriously.
People have always been wanting instant solutions and straightforward answers, which is, perhaps, even more characteristic to contemporary folks. You may ask if astrology could answer any of the questions you might ask. Well, that question has a dual answer. If we think in terms of possibilities of astrology itself, in total, then the answer is yes.
However, if we think in terms of possibilities, skills and potentials of an astrologers, as a practitioner of astrology, then the answer would most certainly be no. It is not that an astrologer just wants to trick you, but no human being can comprehend all the answers astrology holds.
Moreover, if you are interested in concrete answers, you will most definitely be disappointed.
Astrology offers something more valuable than straightforward answers. Here, we talk about personalized, natal astrology, which is related to questions and answers about life of an individual human being. It tells about potentials and capacities of you as an individual and tells about possibilities characteristic for your lifeline. All these information are inscribed into your birth chart.

Others are slower, and they affect whole generations, while also affecting individual lives. Planets are essential part of complexity of a birth chart.
Take Mars, for example. Mars is one of those ‘personal planets’. Others are the Sun and the Moon, Venus and Mercury. Do not be confused by the Sun and the Moon; in astrological analyzes they are taken as planets.
