Horoscope help, I want to know my main, overall horoscope?
Ok so i check my daily horoscope. I’m Aries. But I’ve heard that horoscopes are daily and for a lifetime. So what would be my lifetime horoscope?

I think there’s a confusion about the proper use of terms here.
When you go to read your daily “prediction” in the newspaper, the newspaper calls it your “horoscope”.
But that’s not what a horoscope actually is. A horoscope is a map of the sky done for the full birth date, time of birth, and location of birth for a given individual. The word “horoscope” comes from combining two Greek words: “horos” which means hour, “scopos” which means to look at … so “horoscope” literally means looking at the sky at the time you were born … in other words, it is the astrological birth chart, a circle map that shows both everything above the horizon (that could be seen) and everything below the horizon (that was on the other side of the earth, and could not be seen). This chart has all 12 signs of the zodiac in it, plus the Sun, the Moon, and the other 8 planets of our solar system … not just your Sun sign (which is what you are referring to when you say “I’m Aries”).
This true meaning of horoscope might be what you are thinking about. The true horoscope shows your inner needs and psychological dynamics. It doesn’t so much describe your behavior, as it shows the needs that drive your behaviors. And it is a tool for understanding inner self and your needs.
Since the birth chart really IS a horoscope, and since it is the impact on your personality for all of your life, this might be what you are thinking of when you refer to “lifetime horoscope”. However, real astrologers just call it a birth chart (or a natal chart … “natal” referring to birth, to nativity).
As for the “daily horoscope” … astrologically, it has no value. They assume everyone was born at sunrise, and do up their interpretation for that. Well now, the writer of a newspaper horoscope cannot very well ask the reader to supply their birth date, time and location … do up the chart, and then do an analysis. However, these “daily horoscopes” don’t even really apply to you unless you were actually born AT sunrise. Therefore, they are only of entertainment value. Please don’t take them seriously. They are bunk.
For that matter, you may have Sun in Aries, but you have also have approximately 30 or more other factors in your chart, all of which are as important as your Sun, and which may be in fact stronger than your Sun, so that you are not much of an Aries, but much more some other sign. For that reason, Sun-sign astrology does not capture the essence of an individual, and any conclusions you draw using only the Sun-sign will be so incomplete as to be invalid and erroneous. In other words, Sun-signs, too, are bunk.
