A horoscope is a snapshot of a single moment in our solar system as seen from a geocentrical point of view. Actually the luminaries and planets are not fixed but constantly rotating. These rotations can be translated into different swinging systems, amongst others into acoustically recognisable sounds. Already in the year 1619 the great astrologer and astronomer Johannes Kepler wrote a book about "Harmonices mundi" (Latin: The Harmony of the World). At present the swiss musicologist and astrologer Hans Cousto does pioneering research on planetary swinging cycles. One comparatively easy way of translating planetary cycles into acoustic effects is the transformation of angle relations between planets into sounds. The length of the zodiac is imagined as the virtual string of an instrument. Two celestial bodies are "playing" at a time on the string. When standing opposite by an angle of 180° the celestial bodies "play" an octave. It is always the longer part of the string that is playing.
