What is a Horoscope?
Astrology's Most Essential Tool

by Rebecca Brents

break

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.

A horoscope to an astrologer, however, is a map of the sky ... charted in a circular diagram ... showing where the different planets were located and their relationship to each other at a specific time of interest -- such as the moment of birth of a person, event, or other "entity."

This is what it looks like:

What Is a Conjunction? ---> Conjunctions are aspects in astrology where the planets or elements involved occupy approximately the same degree and minute of arc in the Zodiac. (In practice, an "orb of aspect" of 8 - 10 degrees is still considered a valid conjunction.)

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.

The Houses of the Horoscope -- What life areas do your Natal Chart Houses rule? ---> Defining the Departments of Life -- 1st House = Personal presentation, the way you "come across" to the world, things you personally embody, stand for or promote; interests, traits and attitudes that define you; who you tell the world you are

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.

What's the Difference Between -- A Solar and a Lunar Eclipse? -- Different Issues ... Different Requests for Your Attention ---> The physics of it -- A Solar Eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, blocking the sunlight from view for a short time. ( Earth ---> Moon ---> Sun )

So what IS a Black Moon? ---> Sure most people have heard of a "blue moon" ... as in "once in a blue moon." Not so many can give you even one of the several definitions for that, though. They know it means a long time -- except for those who think it means something that never comes along at all.

What is the Dark of the Moon? -- When the Night's Moon Fades to Black ---> When the night brings no moonlight at all -- The Dark of the Moon refers to that phase in the Moon's monthly cycle when the Sun and Moon are so closely aligned there is no reflected light from the Sun available to shine from the Moon's surface.

The Lunar Light

The Moon Position Presently Indicates:
The energy to accomplish things you feel passionately about arrives in great abundance, along with the patience and eye for detail you need to get all the piddling little details mopped up. This energy smartly deals with all the everyday practical chores, errands, tasks, and responsibilities that take plenty of time and effort but aren't much fun -- the "housekeeping routines" that are part of everyone's life.

If you're able to use its power, you can clear the decks of all those niggling little jobs that need doing -- but don't really "accomplish much" except to clear out your Inbox, clean off your desk, take out the trash, and put the house in apple pie order, so more "stuff" can arrive tomorrow. But at least you'll have a place to put all the new piles.

The Next Lunar Aspect Will Be:
The Moon in Libra Conjunct Venus in Libra on Tue 17th of Oct 2017 at 7:57 pm MDT

The Moon Will Be Void of Course:
from Thu 19th of Oct 2017 at 1:12 pm MDT until it enters Scorpio on Thu 19th of Oct 2017 at 7:41 pm MDT
