The horoscope is one of the most important parts of divine science of astrology. Its importance can be judged by the fact that the horoscopes are widely read all across the globe, in all cultures and nations. The word "horoscope" has various meanings because of its multiple ways of presentations. As per the Vedic astrology, the diagram that represents the positioning of planets in the solar system at the time of birth of a native is considered as a horoscope. However, some people prefer to call it birth-chart, because the common people have this conception that the predictions based on zodiac signs are called horoscope.
Many people think that horoscopes are not astrologically correct, because there are only twelve zodiac signs that represent vast number of population living on earth and it is nearly astrologically impossible to predict accurately about all of them just through twelve signs. Logically it sounds true and there is undoubtedly no way to accurately predict on individual level through the zodiac horoscopes.
