@Doubtful: I read mine when I think of it. I am really intriguied by astrology. I actually looked into numerology when picking a wedding date, but just as I am hopeful to have belief in things, I am equally as skeptical. One thing is for sure, though. I truly am a Libra… indecisiveness and all, which I can attribute to my total dislike for conflict, dissension and overall choosing between two or more things. Fiance is a Libra also, which may be a reason why we can never make decisions on where to go out for dinner.

I like all that stuff! One time I kind of thought of being a card reader or some sort of it. I like Tarot because the cards are beautiful in itself and just very interesting! I need to check the website you’re talking about.

However I don’t live by it. I once in a while visit one who’s really nice and thoughtful and I’d definitely take her words just to make sure what I’m thinking echoes etc…

@Doubtful: Oh! Im a huge Susan Miller/Astrology Zone fan! Actually, I know astrology gets this really bad rap, but if you get into it, you see how detailed and complex it is, rather than general and applicable to anyone…

I am especially careful with contracts during mercury retrograde (which is happening now)- so anyone going over their wedding venue contracts, go over everything very carefully before signing!

๐Ÿ™‚

I think astrology can be a tool to recognize our strengths and weaknesses so that we can understand ourselves and improve- the same way therapy or medidation can…

I don’t believe in horoscopes for the sole reason of that on any given day you could have upwards of 20 different horoscopes, many of them contradicting each other.

@Gingersnap: Thats because most people who write them are basing them just on a sun sign, which is ridiculous and innacurate! So youre right not to pay them any attention.

No astrologer worth his/her salt, they wouldnt be writing such stupid horoscope columns. Magazines/newspapers ask for them because it is the only way it could be marketable.

Having said that, Susan Miller is amazing and unlike the other hacks!

I would like to say that I am not a believer-however my horoscope has been scarilly dead on right, more often than not. It always seems like whatever I am going through, the perfect horoscope is there. I have an app on my phone for it and I check it every day, and I just look at it as encouragement or reinforcement or warning-whatever the situation may be at the time.  On the day I met my guy, years ago, my horoscope that day said “You will meet someone today who will have a lasting impact on you”  I thought that was profound.

@Gingersnap: Well first you have to know your whole chart- sun, moon, rising/ascendent sign, planets…

Youd either have to have an extremely experienced astrologer friend or PAY for the service :-/, OR just find out your ascendant/rising sign (enter info on http://alabe.com/freechart/ to find it for free) and then when you go to Susan Miller’s astrologyzone.com read the monthly write ups for both your sun sign and your rising sign.

I would have to say that I do/don’t believe, and here’s why:

I’m a believer that if you think you have a headache, and nothing will make it go away, then that’s what it is. So if you read your horoscope before the day begins, and it says you’re going to have a good day, that puts you in a good mood, gives you happy thoughts, etc. When you go out and project that onto the world, it comes back to you from all of those you gave it too, thus increasing happy mood. However, if you read it before the day happens, and it says something bad is going to happen that day, it’ll leave you worried and stressed out and cranky, which again you will project onto others, and only receive back bad vibes.

On the flip side….

While I don’t read my horoscope anymore just b/c I don’t care and don’t have time, etc, I used to. BUT —- I would only read it at the END of the day, and I liked to see how it compared. I’d say about 75% of the time it was decently accurate, and this way I wasn’t subconsciously persuaded by what my horoscope said was going to happen, and maybe accidentally creating it b/c it was ‘supposed’ to happen or whatever.

I like learning about astrology and I once wanted to read cards when I was younger. I do read my horoscope when I remember. I’m going to have to check that site out that you posted.

I don’t live and die by horoscopes but they can be fun to read sometimes for entertainment purposes. I find myself looking at mine every blue moon just to see what it says. Normally it’s very close so I guess that’s what intrigues me.

@Doubtful: Thanks for posting that site. Very nice. Here’s a snippet from my horoscope. Kind of got me excited…!!!!!!!

“Pieces of your puzzle won’t come together until a few weeks from now, and later you will be glad you didn’t act in haste. Alternatively, you may be about to get engaged or married.”

“In love, with six heavenly bodies shining in your marriage house, you may be thinking of getting engaged. Again, if possible, wait until later in the month to do so or to schedule your grand announcement in May for best results. If you are getting married this year, it will be because you know you want to be married, for you want to build something greater than you can alone – a stable life together, and possibly the addition of children.”

I’m not a big believer but my SIL is. So much so that she went to a card reader to determine what day she should get married.

She was told January 23, which only left her 2.5 months to plan. She had real trouble securing a venue at the short notice (she’s from Hong Kong and Jan 23rd had some special significance in Chinese astrology and so loads of superstitious people were getting married that day).

She went back to the card reader to see if there was any alternative, and she was told no, so we all ended up flying out to Guam (we’re from UK! loooong journey!!) so they could get married on the right day!

@PrettySedity: That sounds a lot like the horoscope I read for myself on the site the OP provided. Are you a Libra as well?!

@Doubtful: LOVE LOVE LOVE reading my horoscope! I read it every morning (I get it delivered on my iPhone and in my email, lol). I always love to see what it says. I’d say about 80% of the time it’s spot on!
