What is Spamoscope?
Spamoscope is the creation of artist Richard St.Ofle, and a collaboration between St.Ofle and YankeeTag.
As St.Ofle puts it, “I noticed that the spam email I get is filled with this fascinating garbled text, and I’ve taken special care to read my spam mail. I like to think of them as horoscopes, and that maybe someone is trying to communicate with me, but my average mind can’t quite comprehend this advanced means of communication”.
We rummage through our spam every day, to bring you these forecasts in hopes that it’ll give you the advice you need to make your daily decisions – or not.
Checking your Spamoscope daily has been shown to grow your penis (by up to 6 inches), remove wrinkles giving you youthful, radiant skin, increase your metabolism (some users report miraculous weight loss of up to 12 pounds in mere hours!) and hide that unsightly bald spot.

Who writes the daily horoscopes?
i notice some of them have hard words, and tricky sentences that don’t really express anything. who writes these things, and how do they get these ideas?
You work well with those in authority who are independent and original(((i can’t work with someone who’s independent, that doesn’t make any sense))). You could find yourself engaged in nonconformist causes(((actually, I don’t like contradicting people))), always ready to promote what is independent and innovative. You like radical approaches(((no… I like well planned out approaches, I like to feel in control))) and find yourself in support of whatever new-wave product or breakthrough advance is next in line. You have an ability to work with the imagination, reaching beyond the normal, every day to far-reaching potentials(((imagination and no action does no = potential))). Today there is a hint of solitude–you will be moving into new work situations that could mean taking chances(i don’t take chances, and I’m not doing any work, it’s summer). Take advantage of the quiet times that are offered to you now. Your vision will continue to lead you into these unknown directions(((I never go into the unknown))). Your enthusiasm is commendable and the end results will be successful(((on what??))).

I think its because they have to ‘generalise’ to at least make it accurate for one person. I’m a Cancerian and I don’t like to contradict people either. To me it just seems like they’re writing something to pass time and get paid.. But that’s just MY opinion.

Some of them can be quite accurate the one on my blackberry is so true to me.

Since there are thousands of horoscopes in print and online, how is one to know which are valid? They use a lot of what I call “weasel words” such as: maybe, possibly, and could mean. Horoscopes are intentionally vague and non committal.
Here is how one person did them:
The American conjuror James Randi recounts in his book Flim Flam how as a young man he briefly got the astrology job on a Montreal newspaper, making up the horoscopes under the name Zo-ran. His method was to cut out the forecasts from old astrology magazines, shuffle them in a hat, distribute them at random among the 12 zodiacal signs and print the results. This was very successful of course (because all astrology works on the “Barnum principle” of saying things so vague and general that all readers think it applies to them.) He describes how he overheard in a cafe a pair of office workers eagerly scanning Zo-ran’s column in the paper. “They squealed with delight on seeing their future so well laid out, and in response to my query said that Zo-ran had been ‘right smack on’ last week. I did not identify myself as Zo-ran… Reaction in the mail to the column had been quite interesting, too, and sufficient for me to decide that many people will accept and rationalise almost any pronouncement made by someone they believe to be an authority with mystic powers. At this point, Zo-ran hung up his scissors, put away the paste pot, and went out of business”
The inconsistency and contradictions are the real disproof of astrology. Not the skeptics.
