Astrology: What you Learn from Your Astrology Reading

Updated on April 29, 2014

What is Your Sun Sign?

What is an Zodiac Horoscope?

An astrological horoscope is charted from your birthday, time, place and year. A chart can also be completed without your birth time. The planetary positions and their relationship to each other, and what houses they reside will reveal many things that have happened in your past, present and future.

The planets are constantly moving from sign to sign--never stopping. Once they get through the 30 degrees of one sign, they move into the next sign. Each planet takes a different length of time to get through those 30 degrees and circle around the orbit. The moon is the fastest moving planet---changing signs every 2.5 days and Pluto is the slowest moving planet .. taking up to 20 years to change signs. Each planet has a personality and direction that will influence your life.

I want to share with you in simple terms just a few ways to demonstrate how having an zodiac horoscope reading can assist you in realizing your goals, dreams and even how to deal with future events.

Sun, Moon and Rising Signs

The Sun Sign: Your basic personality, goals, dreams and your innermost feelings about yourself.

The Moon Sign: Your emotional personality, your views on love, food preferences and emotional responses to challenges of life.

The Rising Sign: The way the world sees you and the face you show, but not always who you are.

Summing up: Who you are--What you feel--What you appear

Knowing what the different traits of the signs are and even teamed up with a different moon and rising sign I know a lot about you. Each one of these three signs do not tell the complete story, but together they are powerful.

The sun, moon and rising sign are the power points of your astrological chart. And together they form most of your personality.

Money and Finances

A zodiac horoscope--the 2nd house can reveal a great deal about your finances. I will find out how you feel about money, the importance of financial security in your life and believe it or not how lucky you are with money. I can also advise you on how to deal with finances according to your particular chart.

Travel, Communications, Writing and Siblings

Many writers have active 3rd houses. Active 3rd houses often means a lot of travel whether for business or pleasure. Do you like to travel? What kind of a writer are you and how important is success to you? The manner in which you communicate with others is revealed here. Do you like to talk a lot or would you rather write your feelings and ideas? An astrology chart will reveal this.

Your Home Life and Your home Appearance

There is a lot of information revealed in the 4th house which is your early home life-- with the planets or absense of planets. I can often determine many things that transpired during your childhood. How you perceived your life during the time you were growing up will be apparent on your chart. Sometimes it is easy to figure out whether you come from a one or two parent household. This aspect will also reveal if you did have two parents growing up, one was absent either physically or emotionally. We learn from our childhood what we want to do as parents or the decision not to have children. Your relationship with your father is revealed by the planets that appear in your 4th house. It may also show what kind of decor your home had, and how your home was taken care of. A lot of information is revearled here.

Your social life and friendships

The 5th house is fun and games in your life. How social are you? Do you have a lot of friends? Do you want a lot of friends. I can find out if you are basically a loner type or enjoy having many friends. I will also know what is important to you in a friend ship. Do you count on your friends. And even if it is a good idea for you to parner with a friend in business. THat takes putting two charts together to see how compaitble in business you will be.

Your General Health, Well being and Work Circumstances

The 6th house is work, general health and emotional feelings about work. This does not preclude you will have a tough job, get sick or have issues in life. Some people have favorable planets and aspects in their 6th house, and enjoy good health and excellent work situations. Even with a challenging 6th house you are still in charge to managing your health and well being. Though Astrology can be a powerful guiding tool, the choices in life are still up to you.

Partnerships in Business and Life

The 7th House is opposite the first house. How do you feel about partnerships in marriage, life and business? Not everyone is in search of close relationships. Business partners are a challenge and need to be planned out throughly. A negative business relationship can be very costly emotionally and in the pocket. Find out about the person you are hooking up with, and an Astrological chart can be most helpful in this arena.

Also revealed by transiting (moving) planets is how the partnership is working out. This does not mean it is going to work or not. But knowing about roadblocks can help you work them out in advance or before there are problems.

Inheritance and Legal Matters

The 8th house in your zodiac horoscope deals with others in your life. This area in our lives can become more important as we age. There always seems to be legal matters to deal especially in today's climate and glitches with inheritance issues. Your Astrology chart will indicate different legal and inheritance matters that are looming. This is not necessarily positive or negative. You could learn the best way to take care of these matters from a chart and also the people who are involved in the scenario.

Your Ambition

How ambitious are you? The 10th house on the zodiac horoscope represents your ambition and achievements. The goals you set up and how it all works. Some Astrologers feel the father is represented in this house and others feel it is the mother. Depending on the parent with strong ambitions and goals he or she will reign here. Your achviements are noted here. How much do you want from life. Many people want to float along and o thers want to make a difference.

      I 've been wondering what areas were covered by astrological readings. Do you do many astrological readings? About how much is a good price to pay for an astrological reading?

      It appears to me that you are getting back into this with purpose...maybe you never left it and I'm just unaware. Whatever the case may be, I'm happy that you are doing this series. At the very least you have opened my eyes to astrology. Because I trust you as a friend I have an open mind about it now. Well done, Carol!

      Thanks. Up and sharing.

      Thank you for another great article Carol!

      Your description of "Your Home Life and Your home Appearance" reminded me of the only time I went to see an astrologer. At that time, I was mainly reading the horoscope for fun and not believing too much. So I decided to go with an open mind but not giving any information because I was plain curious of what she was going to say. It didn't take her 5 minutes for her to talk about my childhood and have me crying. I couldn't believe how she knew all that! I can tell you it was quite an experience!

      With all the hubs you write, I understand better all the science behind and that the stars are talking a lot when you can read them right!

      Voted up and intersting!

      Joan WZ Astrologers charge different prices. I have done a few charts for hubwriters. An astrologer with a long time reputation who as been doing charts for many people can charge upto $200.00 Obviously I don't chart near that much. Let me know if you are interested and we can talk some more.

      Now this is getting interesting. I had my chart done when I was a kid, my mom got it made but nothing in those predictions came to be. I wonder why?

      I've never had an astrological reading, but it sounds intriguing. (Unless of course you count the time when I was about 4 and a woman with a scarf tied around her head and a crystal ball read all the children's fortunes at the hospital fair - we were all supposed to get married and have children - turns out, she was wrong about me!) Just curious if there's a way to verify the skills of the person doing the reading? I guess this isn't a situation where you have a degree hanging on your wall, but I'm sure there are those with real skill who take it seriously and those who are just trying to make a quick buck. Would be curious to hear (or read about in a future hub?) your point of view on this. Thanks!

      There is reading and learning and many can be certified..However it is also about instincts and not just reading words. I do both..and I can feel what people want to know and what is to be shared..THe charts reveal a lot of information and one has to know how to glean this information. All astrologers are different with different opinions. Everyone is different and everyone has free will. So that is about it.

      This is so intriguing, Carol. For years I read what my astrology forecast was for the day in the little blurbs in the newspaper which may or may not have had any connection to my life. Then I just stopped.

      However I think I would really like to know more about this whole topic in relation to me.

      Thanks for sharing this Carol.

      Have a lovely day

      Sending many Angels your way this morning :) ps

      Pstraubie: the daily forecasts are not astrology..It is just the aspects for the day for each sign..You are far more than your sun sign. They are purely for entertainment. A real chart is personal just for you. Thanks for sending me all the wonderful angels.
