If you see anything in your chart at the same degree (first number) and sign as anything on the daily list, that’s big. It’s a conjunction, or horoscope hotspot. To find out what these planets and asteroids mean, read on.

If you are more advanced with your astrology, you will also be looking for semi-sextiles, sextiles, squares, trines, quincunxes and oppositions in your personal chart. If you’re just starting out, looking for hotspots (same sign/degree) is enough for now.

  1. I just want to say, I love this website. 90% of the time it is accurate for me and I always recommend it to my friends and family. I have been using this site to check my weekly & monthly horoscope for a long time now and I never skip a week without it. It always predicts my love with my boyfriend and gives me good advice! Just want to thank you for submitting the most accurate results of my star sign, it is much appreciated. Thank you! :)

  2. Hi,

    Just a question with the current planetary positions. Using today’s positions as an example the sun is at 12 degrees and next to this you’ve got written Gemini 07 ‘ 45″. What do these ‘ and ” numbers mean? How do houses come into the equation? Can the houses the planets are passing through be interpreted here or is are houses something different again? Today Chiron is at 21 degrees and is in Pisces. My birth chart also has Chiron at 21 degrees but in Gemini. Is this significant or not so much as the sun signs are not the same?

    • You need to refresh the page, as you’re seeing an old Sun position – sorry. My webmaster has left a note on that, if you’re not sure how to do it. The second numbers you see are tiny fractions of time – it’s the first number you need to pay attention to – the main degree the Sun (for example) is passing through. You are currently experiencing a square from Chiron at 21 Pisces, to your natal or birth Chiron at 21 Gemini. There is a part of you which likes to cross the line and experiment with life, when it comes to the internet – and it’s being brought to life right now. Chiron is a symbol for audacity in astrology, and in Gemini, he is in your natal Third House of communication (in the Aries 0 House System).
