Do you read horoscopes and even believe in them?Newspapers have it daily, even on the television they show it. I wonder if people really look at horoscopes? The only times I read horoscopes was when I was in my workplace and my co-worker always looks at horoscopes on mornings, so I got curious and tried to read those too.. but it made me wonder if they really are true or what. Why do some people even believe in them? I mean, people couldn't predict what will happen to you for the day and that's common sense, right? What's your opinion? Thanks

I sometimes read horoscope but never did I believe it. Especially those stated at the end such as the lucky numbers and colors--where can I use those so-called "lucky" things? Some people believe these kind of stuff because maybe in someways,it has done them some good.Maybe,they just use it as their guide for the whole day.But,if they take it too literally,it's foolishness already.We are responsible for our every actions and no one can ever predict what's meant for us.

I love reading horoscopes. That's the first thing I look into a newspaper. It is like something I look forward to but does not really rely on the horoscope. I try to finish my day positively though. :)

I do sometimes.When I am down in the dumps I may see my horoscope and if theres somthing written that it is a good day for me then I am cheered up.And if its written that its bad for me then I believe that how could things go sorse for me and I amy laugh at muself for being so stupid. I think its a matter of faith .It provides us with hope when things go wrong and makes us belive that things will be right when it is the right time.

I used to read my horoscope every day in the newspaper. I also used to buy books on my horoscope sigm, which by the way is Gemini. I used to get my cards and my palm and tea cup read. I used to be really big into this kind of thing. Until one day my aunty decided she wanted to do this for a living. She just decided she could read palms and cards and tea leaves. So she wrote out what she thought things, in her mind, meant and memorized them. She then went and rented a table at the mall and put up a sign that said physic (don't know how to spell it) readings done here and she started reading peoples futures. It was so phony that it made me sick. She makes tons of money doing this because a lot of people are into it and are willing to pay her. She is not more a physic than I am. Ever since I quit because it makes me think of all the times I was probably sucked in to believe it too.

Yes I always read on my horoscope. Sometimes horoscope is true and sometime horoscope is not mean for me. But if you rely to that forecast you don't work for your luck, I think that is another meaning. I believe that if you work for your luck plus the forecast of your horoscope and the result may be a very favor to you.

not intentionally reading but whenever i only came acrossed with it or when i visit my friendster account i drop by and read. Its only in the friendster that i like to read because its kinda motivating not make believing.

I don't believe in horoscopes because I don't think they have the "power" to foresee the future. Shoot, can they tell me if I'm going to win the lottery tomorrow? But then again, you do have different spirits out there at work if you know what I mean.

Yes I do read hortoscopes though not daily and don't really believe in them but sometimes it just lighten your day when it says you are lucky on these days. Or something good is going to happen. It is something one looks forward to.Or it is read just for fun.

Grab a cup of coffee, and have a seat by the fireplace, and get ready for a long, long, story! Once upon a time when I was young, I would read the horoscopes and "wish" they were true! But none of them ever came true! So I said they are a bunch of fakes! But then later on as I got older, I would read them and see a lot of similarities that were happening to me that were partly true! So I started half believing them and half not-believing them! And now, as I read them, they seem to be pretty close to what is happening to me, and I keep an eye on them, and they acutally help me make some important decisions, that normally, I wouldn't have made! They are like my own "personal cheerleader"! I don't depend on them 100% , but they help me out a lot of times, especially when I need help on a decision I can't make by myself! So that is what happened to me!
