I’m a skeptic. Most of the time, I have to see or hear something firsthand just to believe it’s true. Sometimes my friends and I experiment with psychics on the boardwalk in the summer just to find out how ridiculous our futures sound when predicted by a stranger. After hearing everything from “You’ll have five sons” to “Beware the second Tuesday of the month,” we really just visit them for the fun of it… and waste our money, in my opinion, in the process.
As for horoscopes, my take on them is if you read one in the morning, you’ll associate the day’s happenings with the predictions and somehow make them fit. If you go through your day blindly without consulting your horoscope and, instead, read it at the end of the day, you’ll do the same thing and begin to think about how your day fit into the proposed predictions.
I think horoscopes are a hoax, and just because you’re born on a certain day and month, there’s no way to predict the future. But I’m also really curious as to whether or not they’ve been ironically spot-on for some people.
Ridiculous or reality? How do you feel about horoscopes?
