I use to never pay attention to my horoscope. Like many people, I kind of feel like astrology is a bit of a joke. That was until a few weeks ago. All of a sudden I needed something to guide me. Apparently I have been slowly losing my ability to tell myself how to even make it through the day without help.
So I started reading my horoscope. It was almost creepy though. From the very first one I read to today’s, they all tend to be pretty on point (although I can admit a bit generalized so you could probably apply them to any one’s life).
Today the horoscope for a Taurus on www.twittascope.com says:
Take care of your basic needs today and finish up chores that you should have completed earlier in the week. However, you may not be fully committed to the most sensible routines now even if you see the world through a practical lens. Although you’re able to attend to business while planning for your future, there’s no reason for you to limit your dreams. You can accomplish the impossible if you just set your mind to it.
Should I read into this? Let’s start with the first line about taking care of basic chores, chores that I should have completed earlier in the week. I washed and dried laundry, but didn’t fold or put it away. I did half the dishes, but never started the washer. I said I would go get my haircut, but passed when I realized that would involve taking some effort. Maybe the first line of my horoscope is something to rationalize. Why not take care of basic chores? I mean, I could go grocery shopping finally. It would be useful to have some food in the apartment… I guess.
The second line reads, “however, you may not be fully committed to the most sensible routines now even if you see the world through a practical lens.” Not much to take from that beyond the fact that I don’t see much use in completing any of the chores that are basic necessities in life at the moment. I just want to put them off.
Line three says that while I am able to attend to business while planning my future, there’s no reason for me to limit my dreams and line four goes into saying I can accomplish the impossible.
Those are the two lines that have been echoing in my head. There is something that feels rather impossible that I am longing for. I don’t have much control over anything in life lately though so how do I put my mind to it like the horoscope suggests?
Maybe I should give up on thinking a random block of text actually can help predict or guide my day to day life. I mean, living life one day at a time and not looking forward or backwards does open me up to the need of things like horoscopes that tend to suggest how to live today… but they are just random text generated by a random website.
Do you believe in horoscopes? What’s the point of them? When you read yours do you do anything about it? Do you have some sort of way of addressing it?
What I should really do is realize that life is exhausting and stick with chugging coffee until bedtime (for my view on coffee checkout my earlier post: Mr. Coffee, My Best Friend)
