horoscopes

Who actually makes up the daily horoscopes?

I’ve been reading my horoscope lately and i am curious who actually writes them and where they are getting those horoscopes. Please give me a short and pretty explanatory answer. Thanks.

Being an astrologer and having many friends in publishing… let me tell you that ANYONE makes them up… sometimes even just random editors write them. They are complete fluff.

What were the lucky dates for a Gemini in the horoscopes section in the June 2009 issue of Seventeen Magazine?

Yes, I know that the horoscopes are not real, but I was just curious as to what dates were mentioned as lucky. Thanks!

It doesn’t say the lucky days (for Gemini- only for Cancer), but it says something good will happen on the 18th.

Why do people put so much stock into horoscopes?

I’m not trying to start a fight or insult anyone, and if I offend you I apologize right now because that’s not my intention.

I’m just wondering why people put so much stock into horoscopes. It just seems wrong to me when someone makes a life altering decision (ex: relationship wise) based completely on a horoscope, or they judge someone with a certain horoscope based on his/her horoscope without getting to know them.

I haven’t ever gotten into horoscopes but this is just what I see when surfing Yahoo Answers.

People like to think that there is a way to know what is going to happen. They like to believe in fortune, fate, premonition because these things give them comfort. These things say that the future is not a complete mystery, and that people don’t need to be afraid of it.

It gives people false hope. It makes people sit around waiting for their fortunes and horoscopes to come true and not take initiative.

Also, horoscopes are generally positive. It makes people believe good things will happen to them.

The answer is simple. People are gullible and often stupid. Horoscopes make general predictions that people twist to fit their life. People want to be sure of the future and go to great lengths to believe that there is a way to be sure.
