In astrology, a horoscope is a chart or diagram representing the positions of the planets, other celestial bodies, and sensitive angles at the time of any moment in time or any event, such as a person’s birth. The term horoscope is derived from Greek words meaning, “a look at the hours.” Other commonly used names for the horoscope in English include natal chart, natus, birth chart, astrological chart, astro-chart, celestial map, sky-map, nativity, cosmogram, Vitasphere, soulprint, radical chart, radix, or simply chart, among others.
Using an ephemeris and a table of houses an astrologer calculates the geocentric positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets for a specific time and place in order to erect a formatted horoscope. This diagram, called a chart is a stylized map of the heavens. The Sun or the Earth is placed in the centre (depending on whether the ephemeris was heliocentric or geocentric) with the remaining elements around the outside: the planets, the lunar nodes, the ascendant and midheaven, and the houses. Then the angles between the planets are determined. These angles are the astrological aspects. Different systems of tri-secting arcs produce houses of different size.
In common usage, the word horoscope also refers to the astrologer’s interpretation of the astrological chart.

IS ASTROLOGY/HOROSCOPE TRUE?
I’ve been looking at my horoscope for about 2 weeks now and it seems that everything has been somewhat true. does anyone think that horoscopes are true?

No, they’re just extremely vague and thus open to interpretation however.
“You will have a strange occurance this week” well. I wonder what that cuold be. It happens every week, but people tend to forget that in lieu of their horoscopes.
If you’re born on December 5th, do you honestly think that every person around the world born on December 5th is going to be like you? I don’t think so!

horoscopes can be vague as it’s based on sun sign only and circumstance/environment is unique like every person’s chart. They can’t be read directly but I read influences that are taking place at times. I find more accuracy and truth in birth charts.
To add, horoscopes have been made into a sort of joke they put in the end of magazines and I believe many of them are made up according to the common traits of the signs and not by real astrologers.
Horoscope is also defined as the chart and referred to that as well but is known as the predictions.
