What is Astrology Horoscope? Information About The Astrology and Zodiac Signs

Celestial bodies such as the planets and the stars have huge impact on life on Earth. The concept of astrology actually dates back to ancient times, but beliefs about astrology vary in different regions and cultures. Typically, astrology can be classfied into two main categories: natural and judicial. Judicial astrology is based on the study of the effect of celestial bodies on humans, while natural astrology involves the charting of planetary positions. Astrology is also divided into Western, Indian and Chinese astrology.

Western astrology was first practiced by the people of Babylonia, from where it spread to other countries across the world. The Babylonians believed in the existence of five planets namely Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mars and Mercury. They also believed that the movements of the Sun, Moon and other planets had influence over human life and thought that they can predict the future events on Earth.

Horoscopic astrology was introduced after the occupation of Egypt by Alexander the Great. This form of astrology is based on the concept of horoscope. Horoscope is a birth chart of an individual, made on the basis of the positions of the planets and the stars at the time of the individual’s birth.
