I can’t say that I totally believe in astrology – but I don’t let a day go by without reading my horoscope.
Before I go any further, I want to say that there are aspects to astrology that I do believe in, I just don’t personally think the stars hold our destiny. That responsibility is ours.
That said, I love reading horoscopes like some people love reading comics! They’re always entertaining and, every now and again, they’re downright motivation. Some of the best advice, inspiration, and motivation lies within these daily postings.
I guess you could say that I believe in their potency but not their prophecy.
Take, for example, part of my horoscope for today: Someone may be prodding you to take action today, dear Leo. It may be best if you beat them to it and just motivate yourself. I love it when my daily horoscope gives me a mini lecture. This is one I needed, too. I tend to be far too laid back – I got that from my dad, along with low blood pressure, outrageous allergies, a tendency to get a sunburn – even in the shade, a green thumb, mad cooking skills, and a WILD addiction to coffee.
I try to work on this particular area because it irritates me (the overly laid back bit, I embrace the coffee addiction). I just don’t seem capable of taking enough initiatives in life – I let far too many things just float by and then I wonder, “Why didn’t I do this…” or “Why didn’t I do that….”
Of course, being laid back has it’s perks. Again, like my dad, it takes a lot to make me mad. In a world where people get furious over having to stand in line for 5 minutes, it’s kind of cool to keep your cool.
It’s as though everyone’s psyche has its own persona. Mine? She’s somewhere between a beachcomber, a coffee-shop beatnik, and a Bohemian flower child. I’m the one that if someone short-changes them a dollar, let’s it go and figures that life keeps score and I’ll find one down the road somewhere.
Anyway, for some reason, reading this horoscope today has given me new determination to try and become more self-motivated – to sort of “take it” to life rather than letting life “take it” to me.
I certainly wouldn’t have opened up those avenues of thought on my own. My daily horoscope does that just about every day – gives me food for thought with a side order of motivation. Most of the time it’s just what I ordered, and sometimes (like today) it’s so good I hadn’t even had the sense TO order it.
Free advice and motivation? Hard to beat.
