How Can I Check My Daily Horoscope Online for Free?
You’ve probably read your horoscope in a newspaper, like millions of horoscope seekers since the addition of the horoscope to print news in the early 1900s (Source: loc.gov). As online content has been replacing print, you might want to find your daily star forecast online or with a mobile app. Looking up your horoscope is easy and free to do.
We’ve learned that there are different types of horoscopes, beyond the well-known 12-month Zodiac chart.
What Are the Different Horoscopes?
Here’s a quick rundown of the different horoscopes for those new to astrology or just curious about the different types of horoscopes.
- Zodiac horoscope: The most well-known horoscope has 12 names with symbols, such as Aries, Gemini, Cancer, and Capricorn, symbolizing the positions of the planets and stars. Your horoscope is the calculation of the planet’s influence on one’s personality, mood, and environment based on when you were born.
- Chinese horoscope: Like the Zodiac horoscope, the Chinese horoscope has 12 signs based on the lunar calendar. The symbols, including the horse, goat, monkey, dog, and rat, are assigned for every year, representing a 12-year cycle.
- Druid horoscope: This horoscope is based on the Celtic lunar calendar and the relationship between the moon and trees called Ogham Trees of Power. This horoscope has 13 signs (trees), including the willow, alder, and birch, each possessing unique attributes and characteristics.
Check Your Horoscope With the OneLaunch App
An excellent way to view your horoscope as a Windows PC user is through the OneLaunch app. You can read your daily, weekly, or monthly horoscope and easily find your star sign or Chinese Zodiac sign for free.
If you don’t have OneLaunch, download and install it on your desktop computer. Once installed, open OneLaunch and tap the gray plus sign at the top (we call this area the dock) to open the App library. Click on the Horoscope icon. You’ll notice it shows up next to the plus sign, indicating it is pinned to your dock. Now, anytime you want to view your horoscope, all you have to do is click the horoscope icon without needing to open the App library again. Within the horoscope app, you’ve got a few options. If you’re unsure of your sign, you can find your sign by entering your birthdate.
On the other hand, if you know your sign, merely hover over it and tap the box to pin your Zodiac or Chinese sign to the dock. You can pin any number of Zodiac or Chinese signs. However, if you have several apps in the dock, the excess Zodiac signs will go into a dropdown menu you can access later by tapping the plus sign.
Whenever you click your pinned Zodiac sign, the OneLaunch browser will instantly open Astrology.com, our partner page with your daily horoscope. Here you can check other signs, compare your compatibility with those at home and work, and learn more about astrology, birth charts, etc.
