Since the beginning of recorded time, man has wanted to know what tomorrow holds for him before he lives it. While many people say there is no way to be able to tell the future, there are those who believe in different methods. One of the most widely used and accepted methods of fortune telling is the horoscope. In the next few paragraphs you'll learn a bit more about horoscopes, the kinds and where to find them and the basic components of a horoscope. So, if you are curious to see what your tomorrow holds, read on.Warning! Warning! Warning!Before you get started you have to know this: horoscopes are for entertainment purposes only. While some people believe that they hold all the answers, don't base any major life decisions on what you read in the morning newspaper. Quitting your job because your horoscope tells you to make a big change would be a logical mistake, and would be something that you would be sorry about later. As long as you remember that reading a horoscope is just for fun, it will be as entertaining as you want.


Now that we have that out of the way, let's move on to what you need to know to read your horoscope. As always start with the basics. There are some simple things you need to know before you just start reading, the first of which is your astrological sign.

First you need to know which horoscope to read. Astrology breaks the calendar up into twelve signs, which are represented by twelve different symbols. You are assigned your sign by finding where your birthday falls. Here are the signs and the dates that correspond to them.

Aries 3/21-4/19, which is represented by the ram.

Taurus 4/20-5/20, the symbol of which is the bull.

Gemini 5/21-6/21, which has a pair of twins as its symbol.

Cancer 6/22-7/22, which is seen as a crab.

Leo 7/23-8/22, represented by a lion.

Virgo 8/23-9/22, is known as the virgin.

Libra 9/23-10/22, which is represented by the scales.

Scorpio 10/23-11/21, shown to be a scorpion.

Sagittarius 11/22-12/21, which is seen as an archer.

Capricorn 12/22-1/19, having a whimsical sea-goat or goat with a fish tail.

Aquarius 1/20-2/18, as the water-bearer, or someone holding a pitcher of water.

Pisces 2/19-3/20, which is represented by a fish.

You'll notice that these signs are not broken up by month. The sign is said to say a lot about you as a person, and your personality traits. For example, a Taurus could be known as stubborn, like a bull. The symbol with each sign will be helpful for future reference in finding them elsewhere online if needed. So find your birthday on the chart, and that will give you your sign. Now, looking for your horoscope is easy, you just find your sign.
