Star Struck

We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.” ~ Carl Jung

Horoscopes  is the Midweek Word-Prompt over on GC’s and my Weekly Prompts site. We asked our readers to tell us whether they take horoscopes seriously, or with a pinch of the proverbial salt. GC also added a monthly video to our sidebar, take a peek  Here. 

Many celestial moons ago, checking my horoscope was a daily occurrence. I believed every word, and I would bend or stretch the predictions to suit my purpose, but that was when I was young and impressionable.

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.
