On the Web, there are so many references to horoscopes: love horoscopes, birthday horoscopes, weekly horoscope, free daily horoscope, free online horoscopes for zodiac signs etc. The word is used a lot and with a number of different meanings. So let's take a look at what the word horoscope meant in the past and what it has come to mean today.
To the Greeks, who coined the word, horoscope referred solely to the Ascendant or Rising Sign and therefore to a very individual point, which is determined by the exact moment of birth. Later, horoscope was equated with the entire birth chart, with all the zodiac signs and zodiac symbols, based on the time, place, and date of birth.
Unfortunately, there are Astrology Sites that advertise personalized horoscopes, and yet all they provide is text based on Sun Signs, shared by you and over 500 million others. So when you see Aries horoscope, Gemini horoscope, Leo horoscope etc., you know that they are only based on those astrological signs where the Sun was on your Birthday.
A personal or true horoscope can only be provided when the time, place, and date of birth are used, and reading your horoscope is much more meaningful and revealing when you get the full picture rather than just astrology reports on Sun Signs. Be wary of ads for free astrology charts, free online horoscopes, free love horoscope, etc. They probably offer little more than Sun Sign material.
Calling yourself a Leo, Pisces, Gemini, Aries, or any of the 12 zodiac signs, is merely stating what your Sun Sign is on your birthday. However, this is but ONE of many elements in astrology that comprise your chart, which is a blueprint about who you are and your destiny. Planets, houses, signs, and aspects make up over 40 of the basic building blocks of a chart - a true horoscope.
Regarding love horoscopes and horoscope compatibility reports, you will receive more accurate astrological compatibility matches when using the full birth data of both you and the person who interests you. While a Libra horoscope (Sun Sign in Libra) may match well with an Aquarius horoscope (Sun Sign in Aquarius), there are many other factors that must be considered for love compatible horoscopes.
Only when an online astrology site uses the full birth data can you receive an accurate analysis of horoscope compatibility.
