What is a Horoscope? -- Astrology's Most Essential Tool ---> Sometimes this word is used to designate the forecast or prediction of events based on the alignment of planets in the sky at any given time. As such, it has been seriously abused and twisted by the popularized (and usually meaningless and sappy) "fortune-cookie" versions that appear in newspaper features and other products we all know so well.

What is the Zodiac? ---> The Zodiac is an imaginary belt in the heavens approximately 20 degrees wide, containing the path of the Sun, the Moon and that of the principle Planets in this Solar System with the occasional exception of Pluto.
