Horoscopes - anything in them or pure fiction?


I negotiated a small transaction at the end of May that should have gone through within a few weeks. It's been delayed for reasons on their side and late Friday I had an email saying they want to put their price up.

I checked my horoscope, and sure enough Mercury is retrograde (bad for communication). Coincidental or?

I don't believe in any of that stuff.

Horoscopes tend to be loosely worded so that just about all of us can apply it in some form. It's just jounalists being cunning linguists

Hi TheCelt35 and welcome to my mad world. I'm very rational and fairly sceptical about horoscopes and I only look if it feels like I'm struggling against hidden forces....

I do think there's a significance to where the planets are located when we're born though. I might get my chart done.

Can you share any more about your chart?

I think the deal might be back on track though - I exchanged a couple of emails with an intermediary but didn't have the energy to call the principal today.

Id be happy to do your chart for you...just leave details of time place and date of birth.

Im a sun virgo (thats the bit you read in the paper) with moon in sagitarrius and cancer rising. When you take just these three points your gone from one in twelve to one in 1600....and thats before pluto (and goofy) come along..

so i guess we are all unique and our birth charts are also unique

TheCelt35, thanks for the offer of the chart and the explanation. I'm quite fascinated by the possibility of a personal chart - the implication that our challenges and achievements are determined at birth?

I won't take you up on your offer right now though.

Thats fine - if and when you change your mind please leave those details at my blog ...

the alternative is to DIY and go to www.astro.com (for a free online one)

not sure i agree that is all determined at birth...my take on it all is that our higher self makes out teh blueprint ..but free will allows us to choose how certain lessons are learned...a bit like many forks on teh road and the individual making choices all the way...but ultimately getting to a certain destination..

anyways happy hunting!

TheCelt335 thanks for the link. I checked out my chart and, in spite of the imprecise vocabulary used, there was enough that was accurate to confound the sceptic in me.
