The Horoscope

First steps in Astrology, by Liz Greene

Astrologers use a kind of chart or diagram called a horoscope to find out the very special relationship between a person and the Sun, Moon and planets. A horoscope is really a picture of exactly how the sky looked from the place where that particular person was born, at the time of day he or she was born, on the date and year of his or her birth. But instead of making an actual drawing of the sky showing the position of the Sun, Moon and planets at the time and place in question, astrologers use symbols which they place within the horoscope.

Look at the diagram of the Solar System for the astrological symbols of the Sun, Moon and planets:

sonne Sun jupiter Jupiter
merkur Mercury saturn Saturn
venus Venus neptune Neptune
earth Earth uranus Uranus
moon Moon pluto Pluto
mars Mars    

Here are the symbols which astrologers use for each of the twelve signs of the Zodiac:


widder Aries waage Libra
stier Taurus skorpion Scorpio
zwilinge Gemini schütze Sagittarius
krebs Cancer steinbock Capricorn
Leo wassermann Aquarius
jungfrau Virgo fische Pisces
