Do horoscopes work? Or do they just say things that apply to lots of people to make you think they work?
I’m one of those girls who is totally into reading girly magazines like SEVENTEEN and I enjoy reading the horoscopes. I always find that what they write about my sign (scorpio) is always semi-accurate, however i don’t know if it’s just a coincidence and a lot of girls can apply to my horoscope, or if it is actually accurate.

Have a look at the other horoscopes as well. Most are so vague that they apply to almost everyone. Because you focus on the Scorpio one, you don’t see the points in the others.
Try following the Taurus one for a while. Taurus and Scorpio are opposite each other. And do it the same way you followed your own, with an open mind and not looking for excuses to prove it wrong. See if it is still correct.

Hmm… Hello these horoscopes are sometimes really true but at times it is not true i guess!!
And if you are comparing them with how your day was then i would like to tell you that these are not so specific as they are about all those scorpions around the world reading that article girl !!!

Try this experiment with a friend who does not read horoscopes: take all of the horoscope fortunes and remove the name of the constellation and then have your friend guess which one is most accurate for him/herself. Do this multiple times and see how often that person guesses right. If your friend is correct approximately 1 out of every 12 times, it’s completely random. It won’t work if your friend reads the horoscopes, because then he or she will be inclined to choose the one that sounds like the sign they are “supposed” to have.
Why would the position of the sun superimposed on a random pattern of stars impose certain qualities upon you based on the day you’re born? And why would those qualities be related to those of animals that a few ancient people think the random pattern of stars look like? Does that really make any scientific sense?
The only sense I can make of it is that the time of year you are born might slightly affect your personality due to the season and the holidays that were imprinted on your infant mind. Spending your first formative weeks indoors in the winter versus outdoors in the summer, or having crazy christmas events freak you out as a newborn might affect you slightly for the rest of your life. But would they have anythign to do with a patch of stars that one person thinks looks like a scorpion? And ask yourself why the dates for the horoscope constellations are still the same after thousands of years, even though the earth’s precession has shifted the relative position of the sun and stars by approximately one month. So the constellations are actually a month off from where they historically were when the horoscopes were developed. Maybe that’s why you always secretly felt like a libra? From a scientific perspective, astrology is complete bunk. But you are welcome to believe what you want, just don’t call it science, please!
you are absolutely right to recognize that the horoscopes rely on generalities and coincidence to make you feel that they are correct. That’s the psychology of telling fortunes. Something big is going to happen to you soon, a special friend is going to make you feel good today, and you sometimes feel lonely and confused inside but you know that there is a bold and confident person trying to get out! Times are rough, but your perseverence will pay off.

Astrology is a lot more complicated than what you think. In astology you do not just base things on your sun sign which most do. A birth chart can tell you where all of your planets are. It actually makes plenty of sense. with astology you can get really deep. Do not just base it on what month you were born and say oh I am taurus and that is it. There are other planets, that affect your personality
Actually, horoscope never lies! But it will be right for this group of people and wrong for another group of people. It is not always right, but we can find some new reasons for our life there!
I think you shouldn’t doubt horoscope but don’t believe completely in them, just keep possible thinking..

Sure they work. They make money for those who write and publish them. Otherwise, they wouldn’t bother. You asked in science, and no one has ever offered any credible evidence or plausible theory by which the view of astronomical objects could affect one’s future. Writing horoscopes is a psychological art.

Gemini horoscope for tomorrow please do help me so i can understand it better.?
Your quick wit and smooth talk won’t take you where you want to go today, for the Scorpio Moon complicates your feelings. Nevertheless, you are more comfortable when you can keep the discussion light and easy. You might start out sharing a story or telling a joke, yet end up in a serious emotional interaction that opens your heart in an unexpected way. Be ready for a surprise and embrace it when it arrives.

It means, it’s time to start living your own life and to stop paying attention to this generalised garbage.
