A horoscope reading and why one should believe or why one should not
Horoscope has been something that has attracted the hearts of each and every human being irrespective of their belief in it. It has not been without its share of controversies. However, people after so many decades of horoscope reading and publishing still debate on whether to believe in astrology or not. Whether people believe in it or not, interest shown by people in such astrological matters, especially horoscopes is amazing. How many of you whom you know would not like to have a glance at what his daily, weekly or monthly horoscope is? Perhaps none of us. All of them are interested in it, irrespective of whether they believe in it or not. Linda Goodman still sells a record number of copies year after year which only reinforces that more and more people believe in horoscopes today. Let us try and understand what a horoscope is and what its signs are.
According to the astrological studies, horoscope happens to be a diagram or a chart that represent the position of the various astrological aspects, the planets, the moon or the sun or the other sensitive angels at the moment of the birth of a person. It is on the basis of such positions that the horoscope readings with respect to person’s personality traits and his or her future can be predicted. Again, horoscope reading depends on the horoscope signs of the person in question. A horoscope sign is a sign that is allotted to a person depending on the date of his or her birth by the Georgian calendar.

Thus the horoscope signs or zodiac signs or the horoscope signs are 12 in number after the number of months in the calendar, however, the cut off dates are a little different and do not coincide with the standard calendar that we generally follow. These 12 horoscope signs are named Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. Many cultures interpret these horoscope signs in a different manner. For example, in Indian mythology, all of these horoscope signs are solar mansions, each extending to 30 degrees exactly.
The horoscope or zodiac signs can also be classified into as many as thirteen groups on the basis of their influences on the animate as well as on inanimate objects. The horoscope signs classified on such basis are
Equinoctial, Tropical, Northern and Southern signs
Positive and negative signs
Earthly, fiery, airy and watery signs
Fruitful or barren signs
Fixed, movable and common signs
Short and long ascension signs
Bestial or four legged sign
Bicorporal or double bodied sign
The zodiac signs or the horoscope signs are ruled by the various astrological elements.
It is needless to mention that the elements do not react in the same manner at all times for all the zodiac signs or horoscope signs. For instance, Virgo is ruled by Red Coral as well as Mars while Libra is ruled by Diamond and Venus. Again, Scorpio is ruled by Saturn and Blue Sapphire while Sagittarius and Capricorn are ruled by Yellow Sapphire as well as Jupiter, Emerald and Mercury. Like Sagittarius, Aquarius is also ruled by the Yellow Sapphire and Jupiter. The most interesting thing about Aquarius is that it is specially noted for its gain. Pisces is again very much similar to Scorpio in respect of their rulers. Both of them are ruled by Blue Sapphire and Saturn.
Again, different horoscope signs rule over various elements of life. For instance, Scorpio rules over all of the external sexual organs, longevity, tantra, intuition, transformation, life and death mystery and even past and future births. What is even more extraordinary, Scorpio can also control psychic abilities. It is not necessary that all the characteristics or all the features of a horoscope sign would be expressed in a person of that particular horoscope sign.
Most educated people still do not accept their horoscope signs as a rule of thumb, however general traits in personalities between people born under the same zodiac sign are inevitable. Relationship analysis is also possible between zodiac signs and it has been observed that these predictions to analysis of relationships between two different people of different zodiac signs are also generally predictable. As far as future predictions with respect to zodiac signs is concerned, such predictions are also generalized and it is impossible that people born under a particular sign across the world will have similar future.
Thus, the horoscope or zodiac sign is only an indicator of the personality of a person and is not really an insight into the future. Again, these personalities or personal traits have been built upon observations that have lasted centuries, so the chances that the traits in personalities between two people born in the same zodiac sign in inevitable.
