All about astrology
Whenever a new baby born, parents go to pundit and ask about his life. How he will behave, relation with parents, his health throughout life, education, his career, marriage and progeny etc. All these narration elaborated in individual’s horoscope. Now the word come – Horo and Scope. A horoscope is an astrological chart or diagram representing the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets, astrological aspects and sensitive angles at the time of an event, such as the moment of a person’s birth. We commonly use names for the horoscope in English include natal chart, astrological chart, astro-chart, celestial map, sky-map, and star-chart etc. It is used as a method of divination regarding events relating to the point in time it represents, and it forms the basis of the horoscopic traditions of astrology.
In common usage, horoscope often refers to an astrologr’s interpretation, usually based on a system of solar Sun sign astrology; based strictly on the position of the Sun at the time of birth, or on the calendar significance of an event, as in Chinese astrology. In particular, many newspapers and magazines carry predictive columns, written in prose that may be written more for increasing readership than tied directly to the Sun or other aspects of the solar system, allegedly based on celestial influences in relation to the Zodiacal placement of the Sun on the month of birth, cusp (2 days before or after any particular sign, an overlap), or decant (the month divided into 3 ten-day periods) of the person’s month of birth, identifying the individual’s Sun Sign or “star sign” based on the tropical zodiac.
In Hindu Astrology birth charts are called Kundali which are very significant and are based on movement of stars and moon. All the auspicious things are started after checking the kundali of a person including the marriage in which the birth charts of the boy and girl are matched.
The chart thus begins with a framework of 12 houses. Upon this the signs of the zodiac are superimposed. In the equal house system the cusp between any two houses will fall at the same degree for each of the at 12° of Leo, the second house will begin at 12° of Virgo, the third at 12° Libra, and so on. In house systems that take into consideration the effects of the angle of intersection between the planes of the horizon and the ecliptic, the calculations are more complicated. For these calculations it is essential to know the latitude of the event. Tables are available for these calculations, but they are now commonly calculated by computer. Most astrology computer programs allow the user to choose from a variety of house systems.
