A horoscope is a representation of the Zodiac in the form of a square divided into twelve rectangles with a big rectangle in the middle. Each of the rectangles on the sides represents a sign or house. The first sign is Aries, which begins at 1 and the other signs follow 1 in the clockwise order. The Horoscope diagram may take any shape which can be square, circle, octagon or any other form. The principle point to note is whether the house occurs in the clockwise or counterclockwise order. The reader may adopt the form of the diagram which is prevalent in his parts, so that he may not be unfamiliar with a prepared horoscope.
