Horoscope section in a 1995 issue of the Daily Prophet.

A horoscope is an astrological forecast of a person's future created by comparing the relative positions of the planets at the time of their birth to data on upcoming planetary movements, and their Zodiac sign.[1]

On 2 September, 1994, Sybill Trelawney gave her fourth year Divination students the homework assignment of creating a horoscope, using the personal chart she had them all draw up in class.[1] Two days later, in Defence Against the Dark Arts, Alastor Moody (actually Barty Crouch Jr. in disguise) caught Lavender Brown showing Parvati Patil her finished horoscope under the desk - with his magical eye - while he was speaking, and scolded her.[2]

By 1995, the Daily Prophet was running a horoscope section on its back page.[3]
