Look at the stars

Gemini: "You must place sufficient attention on your inner processes now and this could require you to go somewhere quiet. Spending a peaceful evening at home might lead to significant revelations. If you can't find solace there, try a few hours at a public library. The location isn't important as long as you can be alone with your own thoughts."

Everyday, I read my horoscope. I have done this for as long as I can remember. These days, it appears on my igoogle page, which I have customized. This is even more convenient than the older and more conventional way that I used to check my daily reading; the newspaper. I've always thought that astrology is indicative of something; exactly what, I'm not so sure. I'm a Gemini and I've always identified myself as such. Geminis are notoriously intellectually inclined. Apparently, they are forever probing people and places in search of information, they are word smiths, they talk a lot, are apt to change their mood on a whim. Dual natured, complex and contradictory. I can identify. I've read a great deal about astrology over the years, and what I've concluded is still rather...inconclusive. Perhaps believing in astrology is a little like believing in magic. Nevertheless, some days when I read what the stars (or in this case, Rick Levine) have to say to me, often the words are just what I need to hear at that moment. Whether written just for me, or simply something that I coincidentally happened to come across, I often find myself comforted by the wisdom contained in my horoscope. I certainly don't look to astrology to make my key decisions in life, or for great answers or truths. However, at the end of the day (or in this case the beginning) I do find the whole concept quite intriguing.Is your character true to your astrological profile? Are these decriptions just broad enough that we could all find pieces of ourselves in any of the sign's trait list? Is it just a bunch of bologna? What do you think about astrology? I must admit that today's horoscope couldn't sum up my needs better. I've been in need of time alone with my thoughts all week. Coincidence? I don't know...but either way, a peaceful evening at home sounds pretty good to me.

I read my horoscope out of curiosity but let's face it - it's pretty much bullshit.

Case in point: my Cosmo Bedside Astrologer for 2008 suggests that this is the year I try taking nude photos of myself. They're so far behind.

I think there's something to them. They're entertaining to say the least. I also read mine everyday. I dunno, horoscopes are fun!

I think they're all just generic enough that you could apply them to whatever circumstance you're in. I have yet to ever read anything I thought to be profound in a horoscope.

Dare I say it that you look a little bit like Cher in this pic?

I don't like Cher....

Cher? Really? Hmm...I don't see it.
