I like to think I'm mildly intelligent, but I find myself occasionally reading my horoscope thinking: "Wow, these people sure know me!" Do any of you all fall victim to the nonsense that is your horoscope?

The daily horoscopes are a joke but if you have your chart read, they are pretty crazy. I have a friend that does readings and she told me 2 very specific, completely off the wall things that I have never told anyone.
So I don't know, there is something to it maybe.

ditto on "chart" read.

general horoscopes are broad brushes

the itty gritty ones are where you find the details

I am studying the general techniques used in this area, and they are very, very powerful. It is not easy and takes a lot of training, but you would be shocked how someone you've never met before can tell you about yourself with uncanny precision.

Of course it is all psychology and theatre, but as long as it is presented as entertainment, I think this sort of thing is great.

I once had my palm read in Berlin. She verbally fallated me and told me all sorts of shit I wanted to hear.

She earned her little deutchmarks that day.

What exactly is the "chart" that gets read?

Speaking of readings, has anyone actually been to a psychic for a reading? I tune into this one talk radio show on Saturday's that does free readings... I always wonder if people who get them find them to be accurate?!

The constellations you were born under. Sun, moon, planets, aspects and the other stuff that make up your personal horoscope and supposedly influence who you are and what might happen to you.
No, I don't believe in Horrorscopes. But I sometimes read or listen to it when I stumble across one in newspapers or on the radio.

Astrology is OK. The problem is the astrologers - they don't know what they are taking about
