In astrology, a horoscope is a chart or diagram representing the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets, the astrological aspects, and sensitive angles at the time of an event, such as the moment of a person's birth. The word horoscope is derived from Greek words meaning "a look at the hours" (horoskopos, pl. horoskopoi, or "marker(s) of the hour.") Other commonly used names for the horoscope in English include astro chart,  celestial map, sky map, star chart, cosmogram, wheel chart, or simply chart.



The word Latin horoscopus, ultimately from Greek ?ρ?σκοπο? "nativity, horoscope", literally "observer of the hour [of birth]", from ?ρα "time, hour" and σκ?πο? "observer, watcher". In Middle English texts from the 11th century, the word appears in the Latin form, and is anglicized to horoscope in Early Modern English. The noun horoscopy for "casting of horoscopes" has been in use since the 17th century (OED). In Greek, ?ρ?σκοπο? in the sense of "ascendant" and ?ροσκοπ?α "observation of the ascendant" is in use since Ptolemy (Tetrabiblos 33, 75).
