'Cos The Stars Say So

29 February 2004 05:55

I don't believe in horoscope readings but they can be curiously dead on at times. Like the following that's taken off Center.com for Geminis today:

Venturing into something completely new and different may be just what you need, dear Gemini. You have a very solid practical side to your personality, however, the need for excitement and adventure is likely to be just as strong. If you've been putting your nose to the grindstone a lot in the recent past, take some time off for some fun. Visit a friend or better yet, drive out to a place you haven't been to before and explore.

That "nose to the grindstone" bit is smack on target and I've been putting off plans for a vacation ever since due to unavoidable obligations (read: something I can't weasel my way out of). So, anyone out there tried justifying time off from work using horoscope readings before?

Well...for one thing. Horroscopes are fun to read. Nothing uncanny...how many times are they actually right anyway? When you come to think about it...a blind man shooting a bullseye can have about the same chance as the horroscopes getting things right.

I'll say, it's gotta do with probabilities. With 6.3 billion people on the planet and let's just say for the sake of argument that there's an equal distribution of people in each zodiac, a reading like the one above is bound to strike a similiarity among some 525 million possible people, right? Heck. It might even span to people across other zodiacs as well 'cos let's face it, how many of us don't encounter something like that at any point in our lives?

Dude, I'm just a Gemini too.  And yes, neither I believe nor dedicate my life to a lame prediction of my future, it does sometime work wonders and do justice.  What the heck, go do what your heart tells you.  Perhentian my fellow Geminis?
