Kerala has all along been famous for astrology.A horoscope is a natal chart, a specific type of horoscope created for the moment of a persons birth.Central to horoscopic astrology is the calculation of a horoscope, or astrological chart. This is a diagrammatic representation in two dimensions of the celestial bodies apparent positions in the heavens from the vantage of a location on Earth at a given time and place. The horoscope of an inpiduals birth is called a natal chart. In ancient Hellenistic astrology the rising sign or ascendant demarcated the first celestial house of a horoscope, and the word for the ascendant in Greek was horoskopos. This is the word that the term "horoscope" derives from and in modern times it has come to be used as a general term for an astrological chart as a whole.
Other commonly used names for the horoscope/natal chart in English include natus, birth-chart, astrological chart, astro-chart, celestial map, sky-map, star-chart, nativity, cosmogram, vitasphere, soulprint, radical chart, radix, or simply chart, among others. The path of the sun across the heavens as seen from Earth during a full year is called the ecliptic orbit. This, and the nearby band of sky followed by the visible planets, is called the zodiac. The majority of Western astrologers base their work on the tropical zodiac, which evenly pides the ecliptic into 12 even segments of 30 degrees each with the start of the Zodiac (Aries 0°) being the Suns position at the northward or March equinox. The zodiacal signs in this system bear no relation to the constellations of the same name but stay aligned to the months and seasons. All Jyotish (Hindu) and a few Western astrologers use the sidereal zodiac, which uses the same evenly pided ecliptic but which approximately stays aligned to the positions of the observable constellations with the same name as the zodiacal signs.
