It’s in the stars!

“They often say, what’s the point of astrology if you can’t change your destiny? Well it’s true you can’t change your destiny, but it still helps knowing about gravity!” ~ Kedar Joshi

This morning I read my online horoscope and was pleasantly surprised to read the following words. “You are a powerhouse of ideas and creativity now. Plus you have the network over which to transmit them. Utilise both now.”  So here I am doing just that!

Apparently, I am ruled by the planet of unpredictability,  I am a visionary of the Zodiac, an inventor, a genius and a humanitarian.

Whats more,  today is going to be magical with playful and romantically charged lunar vibes! Wow, I am waiting on tenterhooks for a romantic gesture to come my way! Though that might depend on whether he gets around to reading this anytime this week!

And on that note, I leave you with  a couple of cynical paragraphs from the wonderful Grumpy Old Men book.

One of the most annoying lines in aged films and sitcoms is where some old twit says… astrologer, not astronomer, there is a difference, as though people in real life ever got them mixed up. Yes, it must be pretty hard to tell apart a man in a white coat holding a telescope and a degree in physics from some pillock in a turban with a fake Ruby in it! 

Astronomers and astrologers are completely different. One is a person who maps the movement of the stars via science, mathematics and telescopes. The other is a person who maps the movement of the stars via join-the-dots pictures of Bulls and centaurs and fish and then makes up a load of old rubbish about it.

  1. I must say I’ve come across many who didn’t know the difference, and many who worried terribly if the stars predicted anything less than a perfect day! Perhaps we have moved in different circles. I did, at one time, read palms. Perfect way to get to know girls!

    1. I like your style. Have you tried tea leaves? I’ve visited a couple of clairvoyants in my time and one was remarkably accurate! I used to follow my horoscope all the time, but haven’t a clue what led me to it today.
