Since two people cannot occupy the same "Space" at the same "Time", even identical twins will have slightly different birth charts. A
Personal Horoscope Reading is based on your full birth data, and the birth chart it is based upon will include the positions of the Sun and Moon and ALL the Planets. The time and place determine the form of the birth chart and the location of the House cusps. The interpretation of that chart is called a "horoscope reading" or "a birth chart reading" - or, in astrological terms: "a delineation" of the birth horoscope, It will tell you what your horoscope says about you as a unique individual.
What the average person calls "a horoscope" is actually an astrologer's reading of that map of Time and Space, or an interpretation in words of that horoscope chart's symbolic meaning. The horoscope is the chart itself, that map with the mysterious astrological symbols on it (called "glyphs"). The words are the astrologer's interpretation of the meaning of the horoscope chart. So you should ask for a horoscope reading unless you just want a horoscope chart you will have to read for yourself.
Unless you are a student of astrology who knows how to read the map, you will not learn much from a real horoscope chart, any more than you would from looking at your own chest X-ray or mammogram without being a doctor trained in reading X-ray images. When you go to an astrologer to get "a horoscope reading", he will prepare a birth chart for you, and then interpret that birth horoscope and tell you its meaning in plain language.
When the astrologer is asked about present or future events in your life, he will prepare one or more additional horoscope charts for the present or future time, to see where the Planets are positioned then and how they relate to their positions in the birth chart. Your birth horoscope is like an agenda or curriculum for your entire life. The positions of the Planets at various times in your life indicate when certain items in your life agenda need to be dealt with, and the general conditions which will encourage or challenge you to deal with them.
Any kind of horoscope reading should refer back to the birth chart, for it shows what traits and talents and challenges you were born with, and how these are likely to evolve over your life time. Your birth chart is like a road map already marked to show your chosen destination in life. A horoscope chart for today or tomorrow is only showing a few experiences along the way. Your birth chart shows where you came from, and where you are headed.
Most of the specialized readings designed by Michael Star, such as the Karmic Gifts and Lessons reading C2, the Career Counselor reading C4, or the Psyche Secrets reading P5, are based on a person's birth chart. The Compatibility Analysis reading C1 is based on a comparison of the birth charts of two people.
There are many secrets to be revealed in your birth chart, that map of the heavens as they appeared at the time of your birth. It's as if you needed your life map to be stored in the sky, because you came into this world without clothes and couldn't carry it in your pocket!
