    Horoscopes are ever popular, in fact they are a regular part of some of the most respected publications.

    How do horoscopes manage to live on whilst religion is slowing fading as more and more people turn away from it?

    People are gullible and believe in predetermined paths? However they wish to avoid the dogma, infighting, and rules that surround religion. Thus they gain the feeling of reasurance of knowing that they have a path in life, without the general nonsense of organised religion.

    That of course is all nonsense though, as horoscopes are a load of tosh.

    Because the daily/weekly readings are so applicable, you can read any star sign and it will apply to you. Sometimes they're not even readings and it just says 'dont' take any crap, you're a Lion/Bull/etc.!' or that kind of jist.

    On the rare occasion the reading does stick its neck out and is specific, it's wrong.

    If I followed my horoscopes, my relationship may have ended a couple of weeks ago. That's how much they suck.
