In astrology, a horoscope is a chart or diagram representing the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets, the astrological aspects, and sensitive angles at the time of an event, such as the moment of a person’s birth. This is a lot of very specific positioning. That’s why I get a kick out of the drivel delivered to my email account on a daily basis. Here’s the one I received this morning:
“Things should come together nicely for you today, Virgo, as long as you have done the prep work necessary to make it a success. The burners are hot and it is time to throw in the ingredients. If you have completed the preliminaries, having all the vegetables chopped, ingredients lined up on the shelf, and cooking utensils at your fingertips, the next step will be a breeze. If, however, you have neglected to take care of these details, you will find yourself scrambling to do many different things at once. The soufflé will probably fall.”
What is that? Could this horoscope be anymore vague and generic? And the cheesy comparisons to cooking! This tells me nothing about what’s in store for me. I believe in-depth astrology readings can be helpful and informative. A lot of work goes into working and writing an astrological chart. After all, not all Virgos were born at the same exact time on the same exact day in the same exact year. In my opinion, these newspaper-style paragraphs are worthless. But hey, they’re delivered daily to my email and cost me nothing. I gotta go…my soufflé is about to fall!
