Horoscope has been used to predict what happens to countries, the outcome of wars, economic trends and much more about personal course of actions as well.
Horoscopes and astrology began with the ancient Greeks some thousands of years ago. They evolved the belief that the position of the sun and the planets also had an effect on a person's life and what future events would happen to them can be predicted based upon their location. Then, somewhere in the year of 500 BC, philosopher Plato used Astrology and studied it further. This kept it alive, and it continued to spread on through the ages. However, it took a downturn when Galileo Galilei was the first astronomer to use a telescope in the 1500's.
However, as time went by, astronomy once again took an upswing in popularity when it flourished in Egypt around the years of 300 BC. Then, during the Middle Ages, the practice of astrology quietly hid itself as the Christian Church became the predominent leading voice of the new world. It wasn't until the 1600's when an astrologer named William Lilly renamed astrology as being "Christian Astrology" in order to avoid the wrath of the Church and to make it more acceptable. This was instrumental in popularizing astrology and horoscopes of today.
