Do you believe your horoscopes or are they just a vague prediction that people attach meaning to so they can explain the things that are going on around them?

I have a daily horoscope on my iGoogle page and so often it seems accurate… is there really some truth in it or is it just a coincidence?

Also, your star sign – do you really have the traits of your zodiac sign? I am a Leo and I think people who know me wouldn’t be surprised to find that out.

    Horoscopes are designed to be vague so that they apply to a wide range of people, I wouldn’t be surprised if you’d find that all of the zodiac signs apply to you. I think there might be something in there being different traits for different zodiac signs though, based on what time of year you were born – Leos like you and I were born in August, which means two things:

    1. Result of a Christmas party? Shudder
    2. We were the youngest in our years at school

    I guess those things affect the way that you advance. Never having a birthday party during schooltime made me sad.

  2. What Matt said, you can read almost any horoscope and it will apply to you – we look for the facts to fit.
    I’ve heard people say a couple of times that they’ve read the wrong horoscope and it just fitted.
    Try reading Aquarius for a few weeks and see what happens.

    Surely if Astrologers were so so correct, they’d all be millionaires and famous through their predictions.

    ps – Ask someone when their birthday is, ask when their parent’s birthdays are. You’ll be surprised how often you can give a knowing smile…

    Actually Mathew, you’re wrong about several things firstly the Christmas party myth. The gestation period of a human is 9 months and & 7 days on average, although my children were all between one and two weeks late, so think more bonfires and burning effigys.
