Horoscope is the term that originates from old Greek horoskopos.
It means something close to ‘watching the time’, related to the astrological practice of creating specific astrological charts by marking events in time. These charts represent images of the sky, with positions of planets, at an exact moment in time.
Individual horoscopes are done according to such charts.
Horoscopes are done not only for individual human beings, but also for entities such as nations or countries, for example.
There are different types of horoscopes. In natal astrology, there are two main types: natal and general horoscope.
Personalized, natal or life horoscope is based upon unique birth chart that is specific for an individual person. This chart is mapped according to that person’s date, time and place of birth.
These are essential parameters needed for any personalized birth chart.
Such a chart reveals positions of planets and all aspects they create. It shows which planets match what astrological houses and signs. It shows relations between all these elements. All of that creates a complex astrological image.
Such an image is something like an astrological ID. It takes great knowledge and experience accurately to interpret one’s birth chart and create a horoscope.
Horoscope shows your potentials and capacities. It does not determine your destiny to the detail. The best thing about it is that it shows you who you are and who you might be; your horoscope reveals your qualities, your attitude, your perception of the world and more.
By understanding it, you could really get the best out of your life.
Sun and Horoscope
The Sun is the central element in modern Western astrology, while in traditional astrology it is just one of the elements, such as the Moon and the Ascendant.
In modern astrology, the Sun defines us; it does not actually play an active role in your birth chart, in the way some other planets do, but it constitutes you as an individual. The Sun is your essence, affected by other elements there.
This is the reason why people commonly identify horoscope with the zodiac sign they were born under. Your zodiac sign is actually the sign in which the Sun in your natal chart is positioned. Depending on other elements and aspects with planets, your native nature is being manifested. The Sun is the light; in personal horoscope it lightens you as an individual.
It is related to how you express and present yourself in the world and also how others see you. To a pint, it could even determine your physical appearance. The Sun is associated with masculinity and it is a masculine principle in a natal horoscope.
In a female horoscope, it represents a figure of a man, a father and a husband.
The Sun is natural ruler of the sign Leo. It symbolizes royalty, glory, success, achievement, strength, power, light, vitality and ultimate life energy. The Sun is life-giving force, both in real and in spiritual terms. One should never try to fight against their nature and cloud their own Sun.
The way the Sun shines, in terms of personalized horoscopes, depends on the sign in which it sits.
The brightest of stars represents our Ego, our conscious self, our will and dignity. The Sun is also associated with everything you are meant to be, with your efforts and the fulfillment of your potentials. If there are negative aspects related to Sun, the energy it naturally gives you gets blocked and poorly channeled.
This is the reason why some people constantly struggle with finding balance in life, with finding source of energy and security.
The Sun represents the source of our strength, indeed. Depending on its position in a zodiac sign and in an astrological house, some people find the greatest source of motivation and encouragement in their family, others find it in their hobbies or in career, some find it in art, in socializing, in romantic love.
This is one of the reasons that make the Sun so important element.
It represents our purpose and our intentions, things we are inclined to. The Sun is our creativity, the manner of expression and behavior, the source of our will. The manifestation, again, depends on the sign and the house the Sun dwells in. The Sun gives life and creates, while the Moon feels and searches for safety.
The balance between the Sun and the Moon is often simplified as the balance between the reason and emotions.
