Zodiac Signs – Los signos del zodíaco
The zodiac signs, called los signos del zodíaco, are part of the astrological horoscope.
Interestingly, there are various types of horoscopes all over the world.
The Chinese have their own zodiac signs, where they celebrate the year of the rat or another one of the 12 animal signs. Each year has a different animal and your zodiac is determined by the year you were born.
Guatemala has a similar system. In Mayan astrology, they use the nahuales, which means energy or spirit. There are twenty nahuales and yours is determined by the date you were born.
However, the horoscope you’re likely most familiar with is the one that western astrology uses: the 12 sun signs of the zodiac.
The Horoscope – el horóscopo
A horoscope is the astrological chart of a person, which is calculated from the planetary positions of each zodiac sign. Some use the zodiac signs to predict events of the future or to better understand the present.
Mostly, though, horoscopes are used to analyze and understand the influence that the stars or planets have on humans on a deeper level.
