People randomly assign silly historical names according to your date of birth, things like Capricorn, Libra, Scorpio etc. And they say people have distinct personalities based on these star signs. But is this really true? Has it been proved at all?
What I find particularly ludicrous is all these horoscopes each week saying "oh, you will meet the love of your life but you will experience a case of bad luck". Who writes this utter **** and is it actually true?
Well they mean something to the people who believe in it obviously.
They don't mean anything to me though because I don't believe any of it.
I still read them if I come across them just to see what they have to say. Never take much notice of them though, they can often be ridiculously general.
Well it means you were born between a certain set of dates, and that you are identical to everyone else born in those dates
And most of it probably is true, cause they write them so open-to-interpretation that people will just be like "oh wow, that could be me"
Short answer: No.
Long answer: No.
I dont really believe in them but all the same i still read them :P
Probably not but i still like reading them
i'd just read them for curiousity
I can't remember the name of the programme, but the presenter was trying to dispell they myth of horoscopes and fortune tellers. He cut out horoscopes from magazines and stuck them on the back of cards, and then set up stall as a fortune seller, asked people to pick cards and read off the back of them. Some of the people coming out were in tears, saying the presenter had told them very intimate things that no one else knew about. Horoscopes and star signs are generic enough to be accurate but specific enough to be believable.
Complete ********. I have no respect for people who read horoscopes. Even the people that say "they just read them for fun". They aren't an interesting read. They are boring, general and vague. For the people that do believe in them...Its a fair assumption to say that on average, 1 in every 2 days, at least 1 star sign will have a horoscope reading "you will find love". That implies that everyday a bare minimum of 250 million people break up and another 250 million form a new relationship. wow.
