Do you believe in your star sign? Do you read your horoscope everyday? Horoscopes and astrology are in essence two different things. I believe that the positions of the planets when I was born has a significance in my life and who I am. However, horoscopes in papers, are only based on one aspect of our overall chart and that is our Sun sign. However, there is another thing that needs to be taken into consideration and that the 13th sign. In Celtic tradition, there are 13 tree signs and the 23rd of December is known as the ‘the nameless day’ as it falls under no sign. Yet there was a 13th sign, Ophiuchus. This constellation is found near the celestial equator. His right foot is by Scorpio and would fall between this and Sagittarius. Why did it disappear from our horoscopes? Is it due to the ‘unlucky’ number it would amount to? Its association with serpents? (its name means serpent bearer) Or is it due to the fact that the sun would then only spend six days in Scorpio and would make the whole thing far to confusing for ‘normal’ people to understand? Does it even matter? Is our fate written in the stars at all? Belief is an important part of this ‘commercialisation’ of the horoscope industry but as long as you are aware that this is fortune-telling for the masses, then what is the harm. If you are interested in what the stars hold for you, then get a professional to do you a star chart instead of reading it from the Daily Star. By the way, if you are wondering I’m both a typical Capricorn and Birch sign, and that was Birch although I can be that as well! Today according to the horoscope my day will be as follows:
Your emotional state is usually pretty even-keeled, but today, you’re even more so! See if you can surprise someone with a funny story or a knowing glance that lets them know you’re in on the secret.
There’s bound to be a bit of a conflict between your thoughts and feelings today, but there should be plenty of helpful energy available to you no matter what direction you’d like to go in. And you ought to be feeling recharged and ready for a few interesting new adventures at the moment. Mantra: Transformation.
