I am amazed at the accuracy of my horoscope.
At least four days a week - many times more - it aligns at least a little bit with how I'm feeling, or thinking, or not feeling or thinking. Sometimes I forget to read it in the morning and instead go back to read it at night, and some might say I'm reading what I want to see, trying to find something to validate my day, and maybe I am, but so what? Today it said that my obsessive thinking may be a problem, it could be about work, money, love, time, anything really, but it makes a point to distinguish the difference between thinking about something and obsessing about something. And I most definitely obsess. Since 9 o'clock this morning I've obsessed about different relationships, working, how much my paycheck will be, and whether or not I'll have the capacity to save it. I've obsessed about who I need to call today, what I need to clean, what classwork I need to do, what I'll wear this weekend. I'm exhausted because even though I've been essentially alone - or alone in a crowded lobby studying - all day, I haven't had a single second to myself. These relationships, or lack of relationships, or money, or lack of it has kept me occupied all day, and now at 9:48 p.m., I feel like an elderly lady heading off to bed.
My horoscopes are typically weirdly right, and even though it's probably a coincidence, and has nothing to do with astrology, my sign, or that it's Libra season, it's weirdly comforting to know that someone wrote that, and I got to read it the day that I needed it. Any Scorpio can go to that website read their daily horoscope, and some of them probably thought it was bullshit, but others probably thought it related to them. And even though it probably is bullshit, it's nice to know other people have had obsessive thinking today too.
