_ It’s time for the next-to-last installment (because I started with Aquarius) of the only horoscope worth wasting time with reading. That means that everyone can look forward to one more gem from this definitive work. As in the past, seasoned veterans are permitted to skip the next paragraph and crash on to the substantive portion.
For new readers, with enough time to waste on this tosh, I will repeat for the umpteenth time (I lied: it’s only ten...or maybe nine, but who cares?) the standard explanation of this post. Anyone disinterested or in a hurry can push on to the main course, which is easily found below (unless computer illiterate).
Despite of my disdain for horoscopes, I do recognize the creative talent needed to write such nonsense. Several years ago, I received a copy of the definitive horoscope. I think this was written by some clever New York advertising copywriter or team of writers. It is definitely irreverent and ironical, but does contain a glimmer of truth (whatever that is). Each should be able to recognize one or the other personal trait or something irritating in someone you know. Horoscopes and alchemy are similar: each "science" tries to produce something of value from nothing. Alchemy has been debunked, but horoscopes continue to thrive. A clever use of words can manipulate hopes and emotions of certain gullible people. (Where have we heard that before? It seems to be a common thread in thoughts about human beings.) Like robots, all humans are programmed to act in certain ways...which clever horoscope creators have picked up on.
Seasoned veterans and impatient birthday celebrators should have skipped the previous paragraph and are now ready for the main course...
You are optimistic and unenthusiastic. You have a reckless tendency to rely on luck, since you lack talent. The majority of Sagittarians are drunks or dope fiends. People laugh at you a great deal; because you are always getting screwed.
NB. my daughter is one of these creatures, as will be the child that she is expecting!
