What is a horoscope?

Horoscopes are an important aspect of astrology. A horoscope is an astrological chart for a person based upon their zodiac sign. A horoscope usually describes what a person can expect on a certain day, week, month or even year. The astrological chart is based upon the relative position of the planets along with a person's moment of birth.
