2 thoughts on “Whats the difference between Horoscope and Astrology?

  1. Horoscopes are generalized paragraphs about the signs on websites, and in newspapers and magazines. They apparently tell your fortune and future details in order for you to plan accordingly, but in my opinion and most others in this section, Horoscopes are complete garbage. There is a way to forecast in astrology…but not the way typical horoscopes are.

    Astrology is a pseudoscience, some say it’s an art, some say it’s strictly a science. I look at it as a more imganative and creative personality test. Just instead of ENFP, or sanguine, choleric, etc – we say sun, moon, rising, etc. Astrology is really only useful when you have your full birth chart. Basing things solely on the sun sign (which is what most people know and why they discredit it so much) is a pretty shallow way to look at astrology.

    Cool question, I feel like I learned from answering haha.

  2. a horoscope is a birth chart
    horoscopes are usually interpreted as the things you read in the newspaper. people say they’re full of BS but i read in a linda goodman book that actual astrologers write them but it only applies to a real specific set of people as opposed to the mass public (i.e. a taurus rising with taurus moon and sun or something) BUT i haven’t actually done any research or anything to back that up so who knows

    astrology is interpreted from latin as literally the “science of stars” (note that astronomy means “law of stars”; sciences are continually altered while laws stay relatively the same). i don’t know about the western way to look at it, but in vedic astrology the planets are there to hold us to our karmas so we can ultimately attain enlightenment by ridding ourselves of selfish desires. our horoscope is simply a blueprint of our karmas and astrology manifests itself through studying, analyzing, understanding and interpreting our horoscope
