How daily horoscopes works? How rasi palan works?

Daily horoscopes are the daily predictions for the 12 signs of zodiac. These daily predictions are put on newspapers, tv channels, radio and internet.

Have you ever wonder how these predictions are calculated for each rasi / sign?
What is the fundamental concept behind these predictions?
Are these predictions are true or just a fun? How astrologers predict daily horoscopes for signs Aries to pisces.

To understand the daily prediction you need to understand the basics of jyotish and its basic concepts.

In Indian astrology or vedic astrology there are nine planets sun, moon, mercury, venus, mars, jupiter, saturn, rahu and ketu.

The zodiac of 360 degree is divided into 12 rashis / signs. They are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.

For predictions, jyotish uses two concepts dasa system (vimshottari dasa is popular system) and gochar (transit of planets)

In both systems of predictions Moon signs (rasi) is the basic point. Vimshottari dasa itself is calculated based on the longitude of moon during birth. So moon plays a vital role future predictions. Foretelling future is an art and science. It can not be learnt in a single days. You can master the art only by experience.

Reliable predictions can be done with thorough knowledge of astrology concepts. So astrology daily horoscope is based on the moon sign and moon's postion today. Moon is the fast moving planet in astrology in about 25 days moon makes a complete 360 degree cirlce of zodiac. Moon takes about two days to pass a rasi sign. So Moon is considered for daily prediction. There is no meaning in weekly and monthly prediction. Transit of slow moving planets like saturn and jupiter is important and their impact is felt in long terms.

Daily horoscope for a particular sign is calculated by position of current moon and natal moon.
For example if your moon sign is Aries (ie Moon is posited in aries in birth chart) and Today moon is in sign leo, The moon is in 5th house from natal moon. There are precompiled predcition for 12 house. Another planets position is considered for daily love horoscopes (venus, mercury).

Ok. What is the accuracy of these predictions?
The chances are very low. Since mere position of moon for a given rashi can not give pinpoint predictions. If it is true one out of twelve persons in the world should get same results on a given day, because there are only 12 signs. But the reality is different. MAny factors will alter these predictions. Current dasa is important one. Natal lagna and planetary strengths are other factors.
