Horoscopes

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Does anyone seriously read theirs and take advice from it?

I read mine when I remember, but I usually can't even figure out what they're going on about.

    Nope. It's usually a load of old pants. A girl i was seeing very briefly was well into them and it bored the hell out of me and none of it was relevant!

    I do read em but dont take much notice of what they say.

    Its weird thou sometimes when they mention things that really are goin on in your life, but i just put it down to coinsidence cuz at the end of the day whatever they mention in them is gonna relate to someone in one way or another isnt it????:rolleyes:

    On a sunday morning i read about 5 horoscopes in the free magazines out the sunday papers.

    We do, or used to while we were still at college... Some one bought the express every day and we would read them at lunchtime. And laught at how they are all the same or so ambiguous that it could be applied to any situation!

    AT one point we were going to try and live according to our horroscopes like that comedian person did, but that idea quickly died once we realised what it might involve!

    I used to read them and sometimes they made sense but just can't be bothered reading them anymore.

    In all the time wasting quiz type things I've ever done, I come across as a 'typical' Libran.
    What, please explain to me, is the defenition of 'typical' for a group of people who for the main part only have in common the fact that they were born when some far away lights were visible in the night sky??
    That said, horoscopes are quite fun, particularly if there's more than one person with the same one - in college with me a couple of people argue over 'taking turns' to have the good/bad bits (sad, but true!)

    I used to read mine... but then those 3 mini-sentences all of the sudden turned into such a big waste of time so I stopped. I can however enjoy reading about the signs when it's in books (chinese and ours) but I don't believe in it though. It's just for fun. =)

    when i read a paper, i usually read my horoscope.. and always find a way to make it fit in with what's going on around me :p but i think that's how it's meant to work.. you find a way to make it fit... no matter how random it is :p

    i don't really think it's real...

    Here try this and let us know how accurate it is!!

    http://www.sajilo.com/horoscope/women/cancerwomen.htm


    PHYSICAL OUTLOOK:
    You have an oval to round face. The upper body is large and the limbs are slender.

    However , some of you have a tendency to overeat - leading to a prominent abdomen by the early middle age.
    Cancerian women have generally nice teeth and their eyes tend to be watery at times.The hair are normally brown and skin - somewhat pale.
    More often than not,females born this in this particular zodiac sign are not very tall.

    MENTAL ATTITUDE:

    You have a strong mental ability to carry the masses with you. Cancerian women are good orators and can prove to be excellent teachers, preachers and public speakers. They also possess a good memory.
    A deeper understanding of emotions and interest in poetry are common amongst Cancerian women as they are a very emotional person themselves and tend to write poetry at some stage of their life.

    GENERAL NATURE:

    You have a very varied nature, being very timid some times and quite courageous at other . It is also not very easy to judge you or make definitive comments about your personality in one go.
    Cancerrian women are sympathetic ,to the extent of being over sensitive. As a result they get irritated easily.On the positive side you also have some magnetic qualities that help you have increased charisma and greator degree of fame.
    Your lord moon also gives you a keen sense of art and writing . Though it sounds quite funny , some of you can also develop psychic powers more easily than your counterparts of other signs.
    Anger and mushy feelings come to you as quickly but they also make a quick departure as well. This particular trait can make you look very strange or even queer types to the people around you.

    HEALTH:
    You keep fragile to moderately good health until youth but the constitution becomes stronger as the age advances.
    The chest and stomach are two weak areas. The possible diseases are TB, asthma,gastric disturbances and weak digestion. Some of the other diseases that might trouble you are over indulgence in alcoholic drinks, excessive eating and some kind of a fear complex.

    MONEY:
    Very few Cancer born natives accumulate wealth in their early years. Being quite easy with thier finances, they spend a lot on travelling and to an extent in also showing off their wealth.
    But as you reach middle age you understand the virtues of saving and then you tend to save and invest quite seriously . That leads to a comfortable later life.

    ROMANCE & SEX LIFE:
    Cancerian women are romantic and passionate by nature . They are very sincere and devoted in thier relationship with the opposite sex but are seldom understood correctly or get an equal reciprocal sincerity.
    Your ideas of love and romance come straight from the story book and you have very great expectations from your partner.
    The area around the naval cavity is the hotspot from you.

    MARRIAGE:
    For you the home is of a great consequence and family life will be very important to you. You will tend to marry early because you prefer settled life and children.
    You are sincere in marriage and devoted to the family but sometimes you tend to be overly critical and dissatisfied. This leads to an innecessary increase in your tensions.

    CAUTION:
    Daydreaming and one-sided relationships (where one wants to take most willingly and give hesitantly) - are the peculiar problems faced by the cancer born people. You should try to correct this and also reduce the quick variations of your moods.

    LUCKY DAYS, NUMBERS & COLORS:
    Lucky days are Monday & Sunday.
    Lucky color is hite, Cream, Red and Yellow.
    Lucky numbers are2,7 and 9.

    RECOMMENDED GEMSTONES:
    Pearl and Ruby are the recommended gemstones for you. The Gem should be of vibrant Aura and should never have been used before.The weight of the Gem will be decided as per your age and body weight.

    Do you still have your tonsils?

    I used to have chest problems all the time including Brochitis - then had those pesky tonsils whipped out and have been so much better ever since!!

    "Of all the signs, Libra has the maximum share of beautiful women. You are tall with a proportional body. Your limbs are slender but strong. You are attractive, graceful and courteous."


    yeah BABY! :D

    "Either you are a sincere lover who will marry the same guy whom you have liked too or your parents might have chosen. Or you are fun loving changeable lover-who will try to trap every male that suits your eye. As it is very difficult for males to resist you, you may have number of short affairs."

    Where are they? Or am I having a break right now?!

    I like to believe them if they say something goods gunna happen... not if it says something bad will happen :p

    Im sort of into it, im aries ~ and myself and all my friends say im the typical arien, my sster is typical gemini so sometimes i cant help thinking theres truth in that...

    But the prediction thing, most of the time is a bit toooo far fetched for even me! mind you, i do have my flakey days...

    My advice from personal experience is to get those little suckers whipped out - you get to eat loats of ice cream afterwards (ecept hospital ice cream back then sucked!!!)

    They get infected - then infect the rest of your chest and throat area - and it's like a never ending cycle. You should look into it as a waiting list may take ages to get on to.

    Astrology is a lot more complicated than what sign your sun is in, so don`t be too surprised if you`re not a typical whatever.

    Where did it all start?

    In which country where these 12 signs of the zodic invented?

    It seems to universal now - The where showing a trvael programme on Brazil I think or somewhere around there and they said people ask , Hello, What's you Name? and then What's your star sign? All the time - it's like a really big thing over there.

    Well, they`re not just signs, they`re constellations, so they weren`t invented as such. The origins of astrology lie in ancient Mesopotamia (roughly modern day Iraq) and the first zodiac was used there some time between around 630 to 450 B.C.

    It wasn`t exactly the same as the Western zodiac although some of it was the same. There are other zodiacs which are used today.

    But I don't trust those ones that give you a reading and underneath it give a premium rate phone number to call for advise.
