Western astrology is the most often used system in western countries. Horoscopes map the positions of celestial objects based on the precise time and location on Earth that the event takes place. One of the most common types of horoscopes cast is the natal chart, which is based on the time and location of a person's birth. The most commonly known influence is the position of the Sun at the time of birth, which is referred to as the Sun sign, but this is only one of many parts of the horoscope. Most western astrologers use the tropical zodiac beginning with the sign of Aries at the Northern hemisphere Vernal Equinox always on or around March 21 of each year. Some Western astrologers use the Sidereal zodiac which uses actual star positions.

The primary components of a horoscope in western astrology are the planets, signs, houses, and aspects.

Planets represent functions.

SignsEdit

Signs indicate the style or manner of expression of planetary energy.

HousesEdit
