I’m not really sure how I feel about horoscopes, but I read them. All the time. If I come across a link online, I click on it. If I’m reading a magazine, I read it. I search for consistencies with my life, but almost always fail to see any real connection to my reality.
Except for the horoscopes on ELLE.com.
There was a flurry of text messages and gchats one night with some girls I work with. You would have thought that there was some sort of crisis happening. But nope. Just an urgency to read every single line of our horoscopes. And then basically send each other every part that related to our life. Which was every single line.
I was dying reading the horoscopes of my friends because they were so spot on. From their preferred means of communication to how they deal with confrontation to the things they were facing in their life. It was too funny.
And then I read mine and seriously went into it thinking that every tiny aspect would be super generic and just not me. Instead, it was spot on.
While I would like to label myself as very level-headed and rational, I’m actually extremely superstitious. (I would prefer that I wasn’t… but I totally am.) For example, I can never take off my little gold cuff because then I’m convinced I will sleep through my alarm. Yep. Weird.
How cute are these illustrations of the different signs by Laura Rees?
Even if they’re just fluff, I still think they’re fun to read and analyze! They’re written by The Astro Twins. I think they’re awesome. I really love reading the monthly horoscope.
In case you’re wondering, I’m a Virgo (September 1!).
Hey baby! What’s your sign?
