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?
