Personal Horoscope Readings

April 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 104

People rarely realize just how much work is involved in creating personal horoscopes. Based on the ancient art of astrology, which has been practiced in many cultures for hundreds, if not thousands of years, horoscopes take a multitude of factors involving the position of stars, planets and other heavenly bodies and phenomena present at the time and date a person was born into consideration.

Because the positions, aspects and relationships between heavenly bodies vary depending on where the birth took place, this also needs to be factored into the creation of horoscopes, which is essentially why online astrologers ask for the time, date and place of birth of clients before creating horoscopes. This information is regarded as the native, and is considered to be positioned in the center of the celestial sphere, which is the imagined sphere onto which the constellations, planets and the zodiac are projected.

The planes of the equator (a projection of the earth's equator into space), the ecliptic (this plane is defined by the sun and earth's orbits) and the horizon (this plane has its center on the native and is in a tangent to earth) are equally required. The angle between the ecliptic plane and the equator plane remain at a constant angle of 23.5 degrees to one another for practical purposes.

The four primary angles considered in the creation of horoscopes consist, in reverse order of power, of the Fourth House, which is the North Angle (IC or Imum Coli); the Seventh House, or Descendant (West Angle); the Tenth House, which is the South Angle, or Midheaven (MC), and the First House, the Ascendant (East Angle). In the majority of systems used, the Ascendant forms the cusp (boundary between two houses or signs) of the First House, while Midheaven forms the cusp of the Tenth House. The position of the Ascendant's planetary ruler is equally of importance.

The Zodiac is the belt containing the 12 signs of the zodiac, through which the planets move. This belt is projected onto the envisioned celestial sphere, is divided into 12 equal parts of 30 degrees longitude each and has the ecliptic plane as its center line. The tropical zodiac, which is used by most Western astrologers, begins at the precise point where the sun enters the sign of Aries on crossing the celestial equator, and is a movable, seasonally dependent format. The sidereal zodiac, used by another school of thought, is more closely based on the actual constellations, or rather their actual positions.

In any case, the astrologer will need to convert the time of a person's birth into GMT, then into the sidereal time at the birth. The position of stars, etc, is then derived from what is called an ephemeris, a table listing the positions of heavenly bodies at different times and dates. These positions are then marked on the chart and, together with the aspects, which are essentially the relative angles between any given two bodies, are then considered and interpreted to create the horoscopes.
