Can You make it through the day without your Horoscope?

I do not care much for horoscopes but I do read through every once in while. The predictions certainly almost never match anything that happens to me for the day so I cant say that they are true. Well you know what they say....Different strokes for different folks. My story is certainly not yours so tell me........Do you believe in your horoscope? Can you make it through the day without reaching for it or do you have to take a peek before stepping out?

I certainly can go without reading it. I don't care about any sort of thing like that. Many years ago I would read them for kicks and giggles now and again, but only if I happened to get a paper and then only because they were always right next to the comics. lol

I guess if someone can predict your future then we ought to have been in a better position by now right. (lol)

The horoscopes that you read online, in newspapers or magazines are so broad in scope they rarely fit for what is actually happening to you each day. I read them for fun and hope when they say I'll be getting a surprise or increased wealth that they are right! LOL The actual study of astrology is very complicated and if you really want to know what is in the stars for you, then a visit to a real astrologer might be fun and informative. They can tell you about your personality and goals which is very interesting. It's not 100% accurate, but it is a real eye opener. Let me tell you a little story. Back in 1983, I was a divorced, single working mom. I worked in a small company and didn't do much dating. My co-worker and I decided to make an appointment with the local astrologer just for something fun to do. When I asked if there would be any romance for me in the future, the astrologer told me it was going to take awhile, but that I would meet my true love in 1999 and get married in 2000. Gee, I was really disappointed, because I thought that it was 16 years away and it was going to be an awfully long wait. Well, I went about my business, working, taking care of my son and home and never gave it much thought for years. In 1999, I met my wonderful husband and we married in August 2000! When I thought of that prediction that was made so many years ago, I smile to myself. She was surely right and I did meet and marry the love of my life. We will be married 8 years this August. Whether you believe in fate or astrology, it sure was a very happy coincidence!

That reminds me of one of my friends who said for the first time in his life he visited one of those persons who read into your future. He said he was persuaded by a friend who said they did work to give it a try. He complied for the hell of it and was amazed to hear the woman tell him things of his life that no stranger would know. Well I dont know how the future predictions have gone so far but the experience did unsettle him. (lol)

I do not use it as a guide but rather just an interesting thing to read.Sometimes it gibes with what I am doing and sometimes it does not. I just read it for fun and then think nothing more of it as it usually does not gibe with what happens to me on a daily basis.

Now just how much fun would it be to have another human being constantly being able to tell you exactly what will happen in your life each day. Naaaaaaw. Not much fun I think.(lol)

I actually don't read my horoscope but have so in the past a few time. I don't think they are for real but hey, who knows right? LOL

The last time I read my horoscope was maybe 2-3 months ago, so yes I can make it through my day without looking at my horoscope . I only ever read my horoscope if I'm reading a newspaper or magazine and I see one, and I have time. It's mainly just out of curiosity to see if the the prediction will come true, but usually it either doesn't, or I just forget what the horoscope said (usually the latter ).
