Horoscopes: Generalized or Generally Good?

Rob Breszny’s Free Will Astrology has been a long time favorite for me. The most recent horoscope is the perfect example of why I continue to look forward to reading these weekly horoscopes. I read this for the first time on Thursday, and it’s been like an earwig digging through my mind throughout the weekend.

Leo Horoscope for week of June 11, 2009:

This would be a good time to activate your sleeping potentials by chanting positive declarations about your relationship to what you need. Instead of typical New Age affirmations, however, I think you’ll benefit from something edgier and more poetic. That’s why I’m offering you the statements below. They were originally written by Andrea Carlisle for use by spiders. Say the following several times a day:

“I am now receiving many fine fat flies in my web. My web is strong and masterful. My web is irresistible to all the attractive creatures I like to nibble on. I am amazingly clever and extremely popular. Even now, hundreds of juicy tidbits are headed towards my web.”

Many people believe that horoscopes are generalized to fit everyone under the sun, and are therefore a waste of time. Maybe so, but after reading something like this, I cannot help but think everyone could benefit from an “earwig” of positive thinking like this once in a while. Now, I am off to see what my strong and masterful web has commandeered.
