During a break at work the other day, we delved into the guide to living otherwise known as WHO Weekly to examine our horoscopes for 2008. Or in my case (Pisces), horrorscope. I was informed that in 2008 “partners may not be supporters and it may seem as though all the fun has gone out of loving” and “don’t expect a free pass from employers and business partners. You’ll have your share of opposition…finances may not be flourishing.”
Looks like a great year.
Just to really emphasise what shit people Pisces are (presumably about 1/12th of the world’s population), WHO Weekly also provided a Pisces personality profile: self-deceiving, duplicitous and feckless. Great.
Well, like Romeo said, “I defy you stars – what would Who Weekly know anyway?” Or something like that. (Actually, I believe Shakespeare read that publication’s predecessor, ‘Whom Weekly’) .
So I went on to the google machine to find a more positive prediction of what lay in store in 2008. This is what I found on the first link I hit:
“Health issues involving depression, your skin, bones, teeth, knees and ability to absorb nutrients may need attention during the second half of the year.”
Great. Although it was nothing if not specific. Fortunately I don’t believe in horoscopes – except for when they suit me.
