According to Horoscope, mankind is not only influenced by hereditary factors and the environment, but also by the state of our solar system at the moment of birth. The planets are regarded as basic life-forces, the tools we live by, and also the basis of our very substance. These planetary forces take on different forms, depending on their zodiacal position and on the way they relate to one another.
The aspects formed between the planets describe these relationships, and the positions of the planets in relation to the place of birth tell us of their expression in the spheres of life depicted by the astrological houses. By interpreting the roles of the planets and the elements, signs and houses and creating a synthesis, horoscope is able to present a complete and comprehensive picture of the person and his potential, based on the natal horoscope.
Horoscope Origins and Beginnings
6000 years ago, in the top of an old Chaldean watchtower priests studied the skies. This is basically the earliest known practice of horoscope, but it is a safe bet that it has been around much longer than this. It is now defined by schools in America as a “pseudo science”. As time passed, “Horoscope” became more “exact” and less about predictions and other esoteric things. Does this lessen horoscope? No, it simply makes it different and better defined because astrology most certainly is not an exact science, it is filled with theories and speculation.
What is the Zodiac?
The zodiac (greek word meaning “Circle of Animals”) is divided into 12 categories or “sun signs” in western astrology. The signs are a symbolic representation of what is known as phases of uninterrupted, ever flowing unending cycles of growth and evolution. This may be a bit hard to grasp, to help you consider everything as a circle. Within this is twelve similar but different smaller circles, each representing the flow of all elements under its influence. It will also help if you think of the zodiac as a continuous flow, without distinct, sharp defined borders, much the same way as colors do when looking at a spectrum. (light through a prism).
In horoscope there are four elements: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. The Fire Signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Because of this these people tend to be self motivated, inspirational and always mindful of the future.The Earth Signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. The earth element’s influence makes these folks materialistic (in a good way mostly) practical and conservative. The Air Signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. These people are very “people” oriented and get along well with others. They also tend to be highly intelligent and communicative. The Water Signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. The water element makes people under this sign intuitive, emotional and sensitive to the world around them.
How Horoscope is accepted in China?
The tendency of young, university-educated Chinese people (and especially women) to take horoscope seriously. It is currently more widespread here in China than it is in the West.
The truth is that, some of the Chinese female acquaintances who believe in horoscopes claim that they don’t really believe in it, or “they’re not sure if it’s true or not”, but they think horoscopes is “fun”, so they follow it. Others will defend their beliefs, claiming that “not everything can be explained by science” and other stuff in a similar vein. Some even said science is “lagging behind”, and one day it may yet prove horoscopes to be right. Almost all of them believe that horoscope predictions about personality seem to be correct, most of the time for their friends, so they must have some validity.
In most of the case, women have more interest in horoscopes than their male friends. As it is said, women are more sentimental animals than scientific.
When looking for a mate, the very important subject is instinct. If you do not “feel” you are a match, chances are good that this instinct is at least worth considering. Many factors are involved in choosing a correct mate. You need not look to horoscope to be the telling point in all cases. A good example are the multitudes of people out there who are doing rather well year after year and but “not” considered a good match from an horoscope point of view.
Getting to know your potential mate, you should try to get down to knowing him/her at a friendship level first. It is first step in any relationship, of great importance.Don’t take a sign matching to be a green or red light, just think of it as a small piece of the equation. True love comes in many different forms. And for it to work, it takes people that care enough about their future to examine all aspects. So, good luck to you. Chances are you may find a good match from horoscope point of view, as well as from instinct and true feelings from heart. And in modern times, more and more Chinese women believe in Horoscopes; therefore your profound knowledge on this aspect would definitely help you in the Chinese date.
