Question of the Day #179

When H and I used to work together, we'd check our horoscopes online every day. Sometimes they were eerily accurate and others were from another planet. Nonetheless, we checked every day.

Each year, my friend, Mr. F, either cuts out my birthday horoscope from the LA Times or sends it to me via email. This year's is:

Today's birthday (April 30): Through May, you grow your talents and discover ones you didn't know about. July is intensely romantic. October brings travel. Leo and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are 12, 3, 33, 20 and 19.

None of that sounds bad. But after reviewing my birthday horoscopes for the last two years and realizing that I never had those cash windfalls or new careers, I'm not going to bank on an intensely romantic July.

Do you believe in horoscopes?



  1. I never have, but know quite a few people who follow them faithfully. I don't really believe fortunes from fortune cookies either, but for some strange reason, I save every one I get. I keep them in a brandy glass in my china cabinet. WHY, I have NO idea ...

  2. I don't know if I actually believe in them but I do read them (although not as often as I used to) and seem to find a connection with my life somehow. And Rena, I save fortune cookie fortunes too. When I think of it, I buy a roll of magnetic strip and make them into magnets. I don't know why I save them either.

  3. No, I don't believe in horoscopes. But I like to read them once in a while. Have a great week :)

  4. Well, I'm a Scorpio who adores you, but sorry - romance isn't in our cards today (or July either). ;-)

  5. Not anymore, but I was OBSESSED with them as a teen.

  6. Only when they restate what I already know.

  7. I don't read my horoscope but find descriptions of the signs very interesting. Plus, there is something to compatible signs.

    Happy Belated Birthday!
