)-- Practically all of us, believers and non-believers alike, browse through our horoscope predictions in the morning paper. Those of us who believe in astrology read their horoscopes with interest and others in passing. Rationalists have used these types of predictions to discredit astrology for long, with the rationale that you can’t divide humanity in twelve neat little categories and expect all the characteristics and predictions associated with those categories to be valid to all. A fair point, but any astrologer will tell you that true astrology has very little to do with newspaper predictions, however that’s another story. The fact of the matter is that astrology is really all about individuality. Your specific birth data, preferences and name are some of the factors that define you as an individual according to astrology.
With this in mind, the leading astrology website, PowerFortunes.com has introduced a unique online zodiac sign calculator. This isn’t a simple web based programme that tells you what your zodiac sign should be according to your date of birth. No sir, this programme makes use of principles taken from Western and Vedic astrology and numerology. These principles have been carefully formulated into an algorithm that calculates how much influence each of the twelve zodiac signs has on your astrological make up.
The front end of the programme is simple enough and requires the user to enter basic details about themselves, the programme then works it’s magic and displays the output in the form of a pie chart along with a text interpretation. You can then post this to a social media platform of your choice and tell the world about your results.
“Great,” you’re wondering. “So how does this information help me?” Well, this is a first step in helping to find out your individual astrological influences. Once you know this, you can then find out what subtle influences other zodiac signs have on your character and predictions, other than the main zodiac sign that you were faithfully following all these years. However, the real practical value of this programme becomes apparent when comparing the results of two individuals through the PowerFortunes.com ‘Love Horoscope’ calculator, which is also based on the same principles. This can give an instant assessment of the astrological compatibility of two people, but as PowerFortunes.com have pointed out, this cannot substitute for an in-depth astrological compatibility report prepared by a real astrologer.
