What is a horoscope and can it really predict your future? To put it simply, horoscope is a graphic display of a frozen image of the sky, at certain point of time.
More precisely, a horoscope or a birth chart is such a diagram based on the exact time of your birth. Astrology claims, planetary position and all other astrological elements, specific for your birthday, determine your life and your future. For a part, at least. Many are wrong to think what your birth chart says is written in stone.
Well, it is not. Horoscope or a natal chart gives valuable guidelines for life. Planets, zodiac signs, their correlations and all other features of one’s birth chart tell about potentials not about facts. An astrologer would create such a chart and carefully analyze it. He or she could tell about the odds there, not about what will happen for certain. It takes times and practice to learn to accurately interpret a natal chart.
Back in ancient times, astrology was a kind of a privilege for royalty; a royal astrologer-astronomer would interpret stars and tell what kind of future is in store for a king, his army or the whole empire.
Astrology has ancient roots. Western astrology, which the modern one we talk about and use today, originates from Persia. At the same time, astrology was developing in India, China and Japan, as well.
Although these approaches are not the same, they share essentials. For example, Vedic and Chinese astrology are both connected with medicine and healing. In all these systems, well-educated and wise people were the ones to practice astrology. In Europe, astrology was faced with some rather unpleasant times. Very unfavorable. It was forbidden over certain times and identified with witchcraft and all sorts of ‘dark’ magic.
Many notable scientists, physicist, mathematicians, astronomers, explorers, geographers and others were also astrologers. In past, astrology was identified with astronomy. Ptolemy in ancient times and Kepler in the age of scientific revolution were astrologers, beside their other occupations.
Astrology is an ancient discipline and its long history of use cannot be forgotten and defied.
Modern astrology gained its popularity over the second half of the twentieth century. Today, it is digitalized, like everything else.
You can get your birth chart done instantly, by only few clicks. You could even get an expert astrological analysis online, but it is always better to talk to an astrologer in person.
He or she could help you understand your natal chart and tell you about its potentials.
