I read my horoscope in the newspaper everyday. I don't really believe in horoscopes in general, and I sometimes think the newspaper horoscopes are recycled. As in, today's Aries is tomorrow's Pisces, verbatim, but I'll never read them all to confirm this. I don't want to know. If I have a really empowering horoscope, I take some encouragement, it lets me take on the burdens of the day with a slightly lighter step. If I'm feeling overburdened, the unknown astrologer seems to understand and counsels patience. Today's, specifically, assures me that what I contribute to a relationship is significant. That I should stand up for myself, that I'm nobody's indentured servant. I tend to think this speaks directly to my primary relationship, my marriage, but, and here's the conundrum, my husband has the same horoscope.

Horoscopes and fortune cookies seem to come from the same source. What a job that would be.
