A horoscope is a map of the position of the planets in the skys at the specific time and location of your birth. This map represents a circle of the path that the Sun appears to follow through the sky. (In fact it is actually the route of the Earth travelling around the Sun).
This path is divided , by Astrologers, into twelve 30 degree sections, called Sun Signs or Zodiac Signs. This tells you what sector you were in when you were born, and therefore your Zodiac or Birth Sign.
Western Astrology uses the Zodiac system determined by the vernal equinox. That is, based on the position of the Sun when the days and nights are of equal length.
Although every Astrological Sign portrays specific and unique positive and negative characteristics of human behavior and development, many folk do not realise that to get a more accurate report one needs to know the Ascendant Sign.
The Ascendant Sign is the sign that was on the eastern horizon at the actual time of birth.
Not that many folk will be 'pure' zodiacal types, i.e. people born with the same Ascendant as their Sun or Zodiac Sign.
For example, if someone is born with the Sun in Aries they may have a Libran Ascendant and therefore his or her characteristics will be a blend of those regarded as 'typically' Libran and 'typically' Arian.
