Whats the difference between Horoscopes and Astrology?
Horoscope you read on papers daily, tell you what your day is going to be like – entertaining to read but absolute crap?
Astrology – Star stuff?
Can someone please also tell me how these determine your star sign and traits that go with that (e.g Gemini, twins- colour yellow etc. talkative etc.)
People say to me they don’t believe in horoscopes but in astrology; someone just clear up to me what each is?
Sorry but I’m a noob to this. Thanks in advance for answering. Will pick a best answer.

AsTROLOGY IS THE STUDY OF PERSONalities…
horoscopes are predictions which will not end up being right
Answer by Michelle
The horoscope you read in the daily papers and monthly magazines is usually based solely on a Sun sign. The astrologer decides which day/degree of each zodiac sign (Aries, Taurus, etc) will be used to develop the forecast for a particular day or month, often based on the activity for that day or month.
Some astrologers, for example, will use 6 am as the founding point of each sign, and it might be the first degree of that sign–or the 15th degree of that sign. That depends on the astrologer’s interpretation and what s/he is seeking. There are mundane transits that will be applied to the Sun for that particular day or month, and the forecast is developed from there. The word “horoscope” refers to a look at an hour, as translated from the Greek.
In contrast, the study of astrology developed as a parallel study with astronomy. Both fields of study focused on the cosmos, but astrology analyzed and interpreted human (and even animal) behaviors and events through observation of planetary and luminary movements while astronomy analyzes and interprets the composition of and movements of various bodies in the cosmos without regard to the potential interweaving of behaviors on earth. Astrology also, however, has individual specializations that include meteorological, financial, and medical studies.
Eastern astrology works with the Sidereal zodiac, the constellations, precession (the wobble of the earth about its axis at 23.4°, which explains the differences in calculation from Western astrology), the Lunar calendar and the Moon as the focus of interpretations. Eastern astrologers work as well, however, with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are known in the West as the nodes of the Moon.
Western astrology works with the Tropical zodiac, the planets in their own signs without consideration of the constellations, the Solar calendar and the Sun as the focus of interpretations in addition to the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto…and in recent years, the Centaurs, including Chiron, have been considered in interpretations and analysis. Some Western astrologers also explore the possibilities of additional interpretation through more than 16000 asteroids, and some astrologers also work with the nodes of the Moon.
Hope that helps.

Is astrology haram when:?
You dont believe in the daily horoscope and dont believe the stars influence your life or the future and Allah SWT is the only creator but:
When someone is born under that Zodiac Sign they may have those traits?
In my family we looked at the classifications for each Zodiac and
almost everyone matched their details like 90%.
by ten day i mean for Virgo it says august 23 watever to september 3 or watever
We know only Allah SWT is the creator but is this through studies? It said my characteristics almost exactly.

just become a hindu… islam is not for you
Answer by Kazuya
Yes it is. The Quran says Astrologers lie even when they speak the truth. So even when they don’t lie to profit or whatever, they wouldn’t know the full picture, hence they may as well have lied. Following it will show that you lack faith. You need to place your faith entirely in God, and trust that he is in control of the future, instead of using Astrology to learn about yourself/the future etc. You may not be aware of it at first, but when you read astrology you’re actually conceding that these things are happening because of planets/stars etc, and not by the will of God. Muhammad (SAW) said if you go to a fortune teller/soothsayer your prayer will be unaccepted for 40 days. I believe fortune tellers are also frowned upon in the Bible, Leviticus calls them an abomination.
Answer by Muste Khan
Its totally harram and is garbage sheet to believe in. Knowledge of unseen rest with God only.
Answer by Adam
Yes, It does say the characteristics exactly.
But it is haraam
Because Allah has said so
Besides this kind of knowledge is not going to give you anything.
Not in this world, nor in the afterlife
So instead of getting such knowledge, a person can spend time in doing something USEFUL
