Could someone explain horoscopes?
So I know a little bit about horoscopes, like star signs but what are sun signs and moon signs, that kind of stuff? Also what’s the importance of where you are born? Can any one also explain the house thing? Also are there different signs for different planets? Links to websites and names of books would be helpful, too! Thanks.

What Are Their Qualities?
The twelve Zodiac Signs are well-known, but each sign is unique and individual with its own strengths and flaws.
Aries is the baby of the Zodiac. This is the innovator, the inventor, the one who has the ideas but not necessarily the patience to see them through. Aries has an engaging personality and is the one most likely to have an idea when everyone else has given up.
Taurus is the friendly, genial presence of the Zodiac. Taurus is the host, the one who can really appreciate good food, good wine, good theater, etc. Taurus can have a relaxing, grounding effect on others and is the one most likely to talk about it over dinner.
Gemini has the gift of gab and knows it. This sign could sell fresh air in the countryside and present it as an absolute bargain. Gemini is an opportunist who can make the most of any situation or turn a dismal situation around again. Gemini is the one who knows how to bypass a problem.
Cancer cares deeply. Although this sign is sometimes unfairly regarded as moody, oversensitive and very easily hurt are perhaps better descriptions. Cancer is loyal, loving, and sometimes a little high-maintenance, but this sign understands how others feel.
Leo is extroverted and fun to be around. Leo is like a best friend who can sometimes be thoughtless, but once the error is realized, Leo will make amends like no other sign. Leo is very proud and likes to be in charge, and when you attempt to tell a Leo what to do, you may hear, “Who asked your opinion?”
Virgo is the proverbial dark horse. Beneath that shy reserve is a deeply passionate and loving individual who just doesn’t tend to show those whirlwind feelings very often. It’s not always true that Virgo is obsessively tidy and critical, and when Virgo offers to help, it’s usually a sincere offer!
Libra is an endearing, somewhat scatterbrained sign. The indecisive label is perhaps unfair; it’s more accurate to say that Libra really means well and wants everyone to be happy. However, Libra sometimes ends up getting in a pickle by trying too hard.
Scorpio is either your most loyal friend or a brick wall in your way. This sign is secretive, loyal, and passionate with a very long memory. Scorpio will only tell you what you need to know, and when deliberately upset or thwarted, Scorpio will remember that.
Sagittarius is the one who can liven up even the dullest party. This adventurous, energetic sign is not overly sensitive, nor is this the most loyal of signs, but when Sagittarius gets it wrong, you can be sure that his or her heart is certainly in the right place.
Capricorn is regarded as a rather cool sign, but it’s more about being levelheaded and cautious than being cold and calculating. Capricorn won’t leap into the unknown without knowing exactly what’s ahead and what to expect. Don’t underestimate Capricorn’s mental agility, either.
Aquarius is like a young rebel who dislikes conformity and tradition. Aquarius doesn’t have much staying power as this sign tends to flit from one thing to the next in order to understand as much as possible. Their consuming curiosity is what drives them; they want to know more.
Pisces is perhaps the least-understood sign. Like its ruling planet, Neptune, Pisces is the dreamy poet who sees a little more than most but sometimes can’t quite explain these visions to the real world. This may be why Pisces is regarded as sensitive and emotional but detached at the same time.

I would suggest you look up Derren Brown, and see his opinion on all things of this ilk. Because I believe, that if you give him a chance, watch one of his live shows from start to end, then you would not even consider thinking about these things being valid, and consider them, and things alike, nothing but a simple con to earn money.

the sun sign is your soul, your inner self, what you truely are and capible of being. you don’t let people see this part of your self, i guess only to the one you love….ec.
the rising rign is what you give out to the world. how you present yourself, how you behave with lots of people.-when you are with people, you can see a little of your sun sign. but mostly your rising.
(a little mix)
the moon sign is your heart. what your heart is like… i just know it is your heart and how it is, and how your heart feels and gets hurt. (basically it’s emotional stuff…..erg)

The portion of the sky (or arc) that the sun travels in every year, rising and setting in a slightly different place each day, is in reality a reflection of the Earth’s own orbit around the Sun. This apparent path of the Sun through the sky is called the ecliptic . The arc of the ecliptic is larger the further north or south from the equator the latitude is, giving a more extreme difference in day and night and in the seasons during the year. The sun travels through the twelve signs of the zodiac on its annual journey, spending about a month in each. The Sun’s position on a person’s birthday therefore determines what is usually called his or her star sign , birth sign or zodiac sign, although it is in fact more accurate to call it a person’s Sun sign. The concept of sun signs is most commonly used in the West where the majority of people are familiar with their sun sign.
Nearly everybody knows his “zodiac sign” or sun sign, but not that many their moon sign and their moon type. The zodiac sign of of a person it is the sign, in which the sun stood at birth. This is what you perhaps look for in the horoscope pages of the daily paper. This sun sign stands for the “male” part of the human being. But there also exists a “female” side – that is, what the moon sign stands for. The moon sign or the moon horoscope betrays a lot about our conscious and subconscious emotional world. Some things, which remain inexplicable by viewing just the zodiac sign, find their solution by taking into account the moon sign.
