Horoscopes: True or False

Are you one of those people who take their horoscope very seriously? I would caution you against it. The oldest lines that are true for everyone are: You will meet someone from your past. Everyone you meet is from your past! Even back to five minutes ago, those people are in the past. Another one is that you will be successful. Positive thinking is proven to be extremely influential, and if you believe that you will succeed, you will. A daily reading is not necessary for success. The real dangers are when your horoscopes are negative. You don’t have to accept any negative forecast over your life. You have more control over some things that you might think you do. Don’t rely on your horoscope to tell you about your love life, financial situation or success.

There is danger in allowing someone else to influence your decision making in the area of romance. You could have a wonderful significant other that truly is right for you. Maybe you are thinking that it is too good to be true, and your horoscope tells you that they are not the one. You could be throwing away the love of your life for no good reason other than a silly superstition. Love relationships should never be determined by an outside influence. How many times do you think the horoscope says, “you will find true love?” They always say that. Only you can know if someone is right for you. If you find that you are not happy most of the time, it’s probably not working out. Decide what you truly want, and then don’t compromise it. Don’t be extremely picky, but at least decide on what you don’t want, and refuse to accept those things.

If you want the winning numbers, I’m sorry but the horoscope doesn’t know. Of course there is a chance that they can be right about your lucky numbers. There is usually a one in a million chance of this, however. Your chances of winning are not any further increased by getting numbers somewhere other than your own head. The lottery is a dangerous addiction. The psychology behind it is called partial reinforcement. Sometimes you win, so you keep playing, lose, and believe that since you won a little before, you can will again. Eventually, you lose money, or break even. It becomes a habit and a waste of your time and money.

If you rely on your horoscope to tell you your fate, beware. General horoscopes are aimed towards a general audience, not to you. If there is anything negative, you can choose not to accept it. Statistically, people with positive attitudes get more of what they want out of life than people with negative ones. What you believe is more often than not what will happen to you. If you fear something with intensity, it will probably happen to you, because you are trying too hard to avoid it. That is called, a self-fulfilling prophecy.

If you really want to accomplish something, you should be determined to make things work. You have a choice on whether or not to make what you read a reality for your life. Truth or lie is up to you to decide. Go ahead and read the horoscopes. They are good to pass the time if you are bored, and maybe for a good laugh, but don’t trust your whole life to it.
