We all want to find out what planet guides our sign and how astrologers interpret relations of planetary forces at the time of our birth.
Horoscope is a powerful tool offering insight into deep influence on our lives and there are many people depending entirely on it to take decisions. It is in the human nature to be curious about ourselves and there are many people considering the horoscope as the answer to their questions.
The zodiac has also a lot to teach us about our path in this life. The horoscope is much more than the daily prediction. It is a complicated process of analyzing various signs, discovering their compatibility and qualities.
There are many types of horoscopes and every one of them is trying to offer us specialized predictions.
Today the most popular methods of Astrology use twelve Signs and houses, using the Tropical Geocentric Zodiac (Earth centered). There are many variations available. One may use Heliocentric (Sun centered) astrology, or use the Sidereal Zodiac (which takes into account the precession of the Equinox). There are many popular houses systems in use today as well.
Most astrologers today tend to believe that the heavenly bodies do not reach down and push us about. Rather, the planets, luminaries, and stars “mimic” Earthly events. Synchronistic in nature, they correlate instead of dictate. This hands one’s fate back to the individual, to augment or squander as one sees fit. The slight comfort of Fate has been replaced by responsibility for one’s actions.
A horoscope is simply a chart of the heavens calculated by the rules of astronomy. It shows positions of the planets and zodiacal signs in relation to the earth. The Earth and planets revolve around the sun at varying rates and their positions relative to the Earth and to one another are constantly changing. Every moment the heavens are different. If a child were born now, while you are reading this, the positions of the planets at this moment will not be duplicated for about twenty-six thousand years, a period that the astronomers call a “Great Sidereal Year”. In the meantime, the relations of the planets would undergo an infinite number of kaleidoscopic changes; consequently, their influence would be different with respect to every individual born in the interval.
It is further evident, however, that time is not the same the world over. When the Sun rises at the place where you live, it is setting at another place. When it is morning in your home, it is evening for the people in another part of the world. This makes another difference in the horoscopes of children born at the same moment but in different horoscope parts of the world, as you will readily understand when you consider that the Sun’s rays affect the Earth differently in the morning, at noon, and at midnight. The planets’ places and influence would also differ in the case of children born at the same time but in opposite parts of the world. If a planet were just above the birthplace of one, its rays would impinge upon that child with unimpeded force. To reach the other, born in an opposite part, it would be necessary for the stellar ray to travel directly through the Earth and part of its force would be spent by the time it reached the child. Therefore, planets under the Earth have less influence on a life than those above. Thus you see that time and place are the basic factors in a horoscope. The more accurately we are able to determine them, the better we shall be able to delineate the character and predict.
In noting the time of birth of children, it is advisable to have the clock set as accurately as possible. Mark that the time of birth in the astrological sense is not the moment of delivery but the instant when the infant gives its first cry, for that cry is the completion of its initial breath.
