Casting the Horoscope

Casting the Horoscope

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Casting the horoscope, or chart casting, refers to the process of calculating and drawing up an astrological chart. Delineating (interpreting) a chart is a distinct operation from casting a chart. Paralleling this distinction, modern astrology software programs fall into two categories—calculation programs (for casting) and report programs (for interpreting), though most major calculation programs have at least minimal delineation capabilities.
