What are your thoughts on horoscopes?
May I be blunt? Horoscopes are proven to be nonsensical by every measure but one: When you are a true believer.
So blunt :o
I could make my wording even more blunt if you like?
Please do :)
It is money milking and steering those who do need belief.

Taking advantage of those who are mentally addicted is very ugly. And it looks like an addiction when you gamble with the stars in order to avoid things from happening which would not be in your mind if you would not gamble with stars in the first place.
...I feel like you're holding back ;)
I think I already told that story, but here it is again: There were horoscope writes in the local newspaper who were having some fun with me. At least they tried. It was for months that they wrote ugly things about Virgos but I knew they meant me only me. You will suffer this week you heartless bitch. It is the Virgos doom to have a stone cold heart and a brilliant brain. Sad enough that brain only tricks her into doubt.
So everything you start now will be futile. Take a hot bath and face it. Next week will be worse.
..and so on. Basically it was a stream of insults, doom mongering and hate against Virgos.
But one morning I was pleased to see the writer had changed. It had been a necessity due to the former editor suffered an overdose of black cat shoved down his throat by means of a broom stick. The new one wrote: Beware of cats when you are Leo. Funny. :D
I've always the fate of someone who doesn't read their horoscope for the day.
They age not favourably like e.g. good wine or such. Old horoscopes rot. They do not stand the test of time. In hindsight they show their sinister if not outright evil character. And after prolonge time of observation some sad horoscope also reveal their periodic nature. They repeat themselves. A mindless merry go round of prefabricated text. Sad.
