be at the stage of asking, "What is a horoscope?" What is
astrology all about? If so, you're going to find the answers
here. To begin, the horoscope is a map that appears as a two
dimensional chart. It shows the position of the Sun, the
Moon, and planets at the precise moment of your birth. The
planets are frozen in their position at that initial moment
of birth. That is why this type of horoscope is known as the
birth chart or the natal chart.
A correct interpretation of these birth positions exposes
much about you. It can be thought of as the "hand" that has
been "dealt" in life. This doesn't suggest that your life
has already been decided. A horoscope can never show how you
are going to "play" this hand. It's largely up to you to
decide that. While you usually have freedom of choice or
free will, the horoscope does reflect the natural
inclinations you have, the lessons you have to learn, the
issues to be faced, and the problems to be solved. It may be
thought of as merely an abstract formula showing the
energies you've been given, or perhaps tasked. The use that
you make of these energies, or opportunities, if you will,
depends upon you, the individual.
Astrology can provide incredible keys to understanding, but
it doesn't necessarily provide clear and simplistic answers
to any problems with which you may be dealing. Obtaining
information about your horoscope may give you some insights
and understanding of the reasons why you behave as you do.
To have the horoscope of another revealed allows the reader
to understand that person better. You can see and understand
him or her more accurately, objectively, and with a much
greater tolerance. Understanding your horoscope may allow
you to more clearly understand and accept yourself, and
therefore do what you can with your natural attributes.
