What is Astrology?
Astrology is the ancient system that correlates life on Earth with the ever-changing patterns of the sky. It evolved over centuries as a key element in the development of human civilization. Observing the rising and setting of the star Sirius enabled the Egyptians to develop agriculture, while transits of Mercury and Venus were key market indicators for Babylonian commerce. Monarchs relied on astrology to guide affairs of state, generals to plan battles, physicians to cure the sick and philosophers to weigh the soul. Astrology is humanity's most enduring psychological tool, defining personality and delineating the shifting cycles of individual lives.
What are Horoscopes?
Horoscopes are forecasts for the twelve signs of the zodiac found online, in newspapers and magazines. They are based on the movement of the Sun, Moon and planets in relationship to the fixed positions of the signs, using the astrological principle of aspects, or meaningful angles. Horoscopes can be written for any period of time, but daily, weekly and monthly are the most common. They can also describe general trends or focus on a particular subject such as romance, career or health.
