I read my horoscope, oh, maybe once, twice a month. Don't pay much attention. Usually its silly, off the mark, or obvious. Once in a blue moon it seems eerily precise and specific, written for me. This morning's really fits.
Considering that the churches condenm astrology and science scoffs at it, a surprisingly large number of Americans (I think about 30% ) put some stock in it. I doubt that the day and time of my birth has that much influence on my life, and the stars even less (directly and specifically--of course, if the stars weren't there, I wouldn't be here at all). I think this is a sugar coated way of accepting good advice. I needed to here: "things aren;t as hard as they seem, ignore the past, take care of what's in front of you." But if my spouse or another friend had said this to me, I would have felt hurt and maybe a little resentful, and certainly more resisting.
